Humans love sex, and humans love toys. Sex toys are a thing. We tend to think they’re alright, too.
But here’s the thing about sex toys: All the really cool (and really frightening) gear tends to cost you a big ol’ pile of cash. Have you ever wondered what an inquiring mind could achieve… READ MORE »
Euphemisms are words and phrases we use when we want to avoid saying something naughty or unpleasant to think about. For example, “choking the chicken,” which on the surface sounds like a beautiful, natural act, is actually a description of something that is pretty disgusting. But even though we use a euphemism so we don’t have… READ MORE »
Doctors — especially surgeons — are expected to maintain a sense of decorum and professionalism at all times. I’m a board-certified neurosurgeon at a major American academic center, and while medicine is an incredibly rewarding career, it puts you in contact with a lot of people doing dumb, terrible things to their bodies. So, on… READ MORE »
One of the few criticisms of Game of Thrones is that it relies too much on gratuitous sex scenes. But some fans look at the franchise and decide that there isn’t nearly enough inappropriate boning. These special people write fan fiction that will make it impossible to ever read the books or watch the show again without feeling dirty in… READ MORE »
Until recently, you probably thought that the “men’s rights movement” was just a weird fad on the Internet for sad, depressed guys who wanted to vent about their sexual frustrations, no more or less important to your day-to-day life than, say, people raging against bad movie reviews or complaining that their favorite video game company… READ MORE »
Genitals are perhaps the only thing in the world that everyone loves and most people don’t mind sharing with others. That’s why they also tend to be fairly well-maintained, be it by rigorous daily training using the … um, workout material we find on the Internet, or by flat out gluing our junk full of Swarovski crystals.

In 2006, “The Biggest Loser” was in its third season. This hit reality show focused on a group of 14 people sent off to live in a complex together, with the goal of losing weight via the fastest possible methods that weren’t amputation or amphetamines. However, behind the hasty weight loss, trumped-up drama, and dramatic music,… READ MORE »
When that one kid back in high school told us that he’d heard that you could get pregnant from blow jobs or that the chlorine in hot tubs means you can’t catch STDs, we were smart enough to call bullshit. But it turns out that we probably shouldn’t have been so quick to laugh and tell him what a… READ MORE »
A lot of people have been watching the melodramatic political series “House of Cards” on Netflix (which I believe is a remake of the highly acclaimed “How a Bill Becomes a Law” episode of “Schoolhouse Rock”), and many of these viewers are complaining about how silly it is. They’re not wrong, but they’re failing to see… READ MORE »
Some lies are obvious. If a homeless person approaches you and says that he can predict your future in exchange for a dollar, you’ll probably realize that he’s not telling the truth (personally, this only took me $4). If your parents raised you to believe that punching a pack of wolves to death is the… READ MORE »
We all have pet peeves. We all have rage triggers. For some people, it’s loud chewing. For others, it’s people who point when they talk. But sometimes, even though our hearts race and our fists clench, we know we’re wrong. Or if not wrong, we know we’re overreacting. And it just doesn’t matter. We can’t help… READ MORE »
