A Note On Playing It Safe: The Frisky thinks safe sex is smart sex – so please practice it in the way that’s right for your relationship.
So, NPR posted a story saying that condom-less sex is the new engagement ring, because going bareback shows the same or similar kind of intimacy and trust and commitment that traditional marriage does. I see their point, though the man-friend and I dropped the connies well before we got engaged — but only when we’d agreed to be monogamous and had done the all important STD-tests etc. Over at fellow lady blog Jezebel, outgoing Features Editor Moe says about sex without a condom:
“…here is the irrefutable: it feels awesome. Maybe that is because I have only really engaged in bareback sex with the types of dudes who don’t fear HPV and whose diseases I don’t particularly fear, because the worst thing I can think of about most of them is the ensuing lifetime of awkward conversations…”
In other words, sex with condoms sucks, the worst that could happen to me if I go without condoms with a dude is maybe I could get pregnant or get HPV or “diseases I don’t particularly fear” and of having those diseases, the worst part is having awkward conversations with future sex partners. There is so much that is ridiculous about that statement, but I’m not in the business of ripping people apart for their personal sexual choices.

It’s an exciting week! We’ve got not one but two new additions to the “Guys On Our IM” roster (including one of our boys at AskMen.com), each desperate to wow your lady skulls with their revelations on the male psyche, sex drive, and beating heart. This week, I broke ‘em in hard, asking them to confess how they really feel when they aren’t able to make a sexual partner climax. Depressed? Suicidal? Meh? Sadistically happy? Find out, after the jump! Keep reading »

If you ask a man what he looks for when he meets a vagina, besides a great sense of humor of course, he will probably suggest many of the same delusional qualities he wants in his total fantasy female package. Easy on the eye, morning, noon, and night; perfumed to perfection; tantalizing to the taste buds; demure blushing rose bud one day; insatiable quivering tigress purring, “Sic ‘em Rex” the next.

In yesterday’s post about the 30 things women love that men don’t understand, I listed “sexless cotton brief underwear” at number 11. Those are my favorite kinds of lingerie — in cute, fun prints, yes, but cotton, usually paired with a bright, cotton bra with about as much sex appeal as Rainbow Bright. I’ve got some “sexier” lingerie, I suppose, including this lacy bra thingy I bought on The Frisky’s big bra fitting trip earlier this year that has ribbons cascading from it that I save for special occasions (special occasions I won’t be having for another three months, at least). Anyway, my ex never seemed to really notice my undergarments which was great when I was wearing some holey, period-stained thong, but kind of was a bummer when I took the time to match and traded in cotton for lace. But I’ve heard similar complaints from other women — do dudes really give a crap whether the women they’re about to make sweet love to is wearing practical panties from The Gap or a sheer lace booty boy short from La Perla? And if not, why the hell are places that charge $50 for a tiny scrap of fabric still in business? I interrogate the guys on my IM about their lingerie preferences, after the jump… Keep reading »
Is your boyfriend a little small down there? Well, pump up his ego with the Trouser Expander! It’s just one of many new products that make men feel better about their bodies. The Trouser Expander enlarges the user to “a whopping 8″, with girth beyond belief!” and costs just $7. How he’ll explain that air pump hanging out of his pants, well, that’s his problem.

So, this morning Simcha professed her hatred for holiday music, sadly, one of my greatest guilty pleasures. But I think I’ve found just the thing to open her eyes to the joys of festive tunes! For some unknown reason, adorably nerdy-hot actor John Krasinski (Jim on “The Office”) stopped by an Aimee Mann show and did a duet with her on “Winter Wonderland.” And, yes, it’s true. Nerdy-hot guys get even nerdier and hotter when they sing…Christmas carols. [Via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
On “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Andy Samberg dropped another hot hit, J**z In My Pants, with his boy band “The Lonely Island.” The group is composed of three comedic cuties: “SNL” writer Jorma Taccone, cast member/comedian Andy Samberg, and a music video director with an even more messed up Hebrew name that me, Akiva Schaffer. Together they’ve made the movie “Hot Rod”, a “Hills”/”OC” spoof called “The ‘Bu,” a bunch of film shorts, music vids, and “Awesometown”, one of three rejected TV pilots. (How could anyone tell these babes no?!) However, the good news is, they are set to release a record entitled Incredibad the second week of February! But we just can’t make you wait that long for all their three-pronged sexy. So check these boys out in an early music video for their track “Ka-Blamo!“ above. And if you want to see Jorma dancing around without clothes then this oughta put a smile on your face. [The Lonely Island] Keep reading »
There’s been a strange phenomenon occurring these last couple months, and I don’t think it’s going to stop anytime soon. Several companies have begun selling articles of clothing for men that had previously been reserved for women: bras, Spanx-like undershirts, pantyhose, girdles, and skirts. And it doesn’t stop there. Today, Just Jared reported that “All My Children” star Cameron Mathison wore a thong in last Wednesday’s episode of the show.
Most people have seen these items and been aghast. “I don’t wear girdles and pantyhose, and I wouldn’t want a man I’m dating to be of such a vain sort to want to either. And as shallow as it sounds, if a guy needs a bra, he needs a workout routine too,” said Frisky commenter DancerNinja. Contrary to popular opinion, I’m actually quite pleased that these items have become available for men and might enter their wardrobes. Keep reading »
