Get Tested For STDs And Win An iPod Or Wii!

Want a new iPod? Or a Wii? Or a Fujitsu laptop? Get tested for STDs! In a new attempt to get England’s sexually rampant youth out of the bedroom and into a clinic, Britain’s National Health Service is entering folks who get tested in raffles for expensive high-tech toys and even weekend getaways. Why? Because there’s been a serious chlamydia outbreak there lately, and the disease is now the number one STD in the country. The NHS is dipping into taxpayer’s money, practically bribing folks to get tested. [Daily Mail]

Hands-On “Sex Academy” In Berlin

People looking to set off fireworks with a new sex technique and those who might have missed out on sex ed when they were younger can get a refresher course at the “Amora Sex Academy,” an interactive exhibition that recently opened in Berlin. The slogan of the exhibit is “Finally — an exhibition for those who always have to touch everything.” There are more than 50 interactive displays in which men and women learn about each others’ bodies. Visitors play with the erogenous zones of naked mannequins positioned in different sexual positions. When one female model’s G-spot is accurately located, she lights up and shrieks, “That’s it!” Keep reading »

An Orgasm A Day Keeps The Doctor Away, British Kids Are Told

Jeebus. Why does everybody get so freaked out when adults dare to talk about teenagers masturbating, considering horny 13-year-old guys probably jerk off more than anyone in the world? Alas, there’s drama in Sheffield, England, because medical professionals are circulating a pamphlet to teens which suggests that self-pleasure might be more satisfying than, oh, having sex before they’re ready or getting knocked up. The pamphlet is called “Pleasure” and it says:

“An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away….Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes’ physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?”

Lady Gaga Dislikes Pants But Supports The Wearing Of Rubbers

Earlier this week, Lady Gaga took time out from pantslessness and boob explosions to volunteer at AIDS charity Body Positive North West in Manchester, England. “I want to make it fashionable to have safe sex,” she said. “You must be safe. You can have sex with hundreds of people with a condom on and get nothing. If you have sex without one, then you could get all sorts of problems.” Hey, if the singer can create a trend out of neglecting to put clothes on the lower half of her body, maybe she can get people to put on condoms.

While she was at the AIDS center, she helped paint the above mural that included her likeness. The hair-bow is accurate, but why is she wearing leggings? [The Advocate] Keep reading »

Vibrators Are Commonplace These Days — Where Do You Hide Yours?

Do you feel sheepish that you own a vibrator? Well stop. According to two new national surveys from Indiana University, 53 percent of women and nearly half of men report having used a vibrator. In fact, the vibrator is nearly as popular in households as appliances such as the drip coffee maker and the toaster oven.

Back in the ’50s, studies by the Alfred Kinsey and others concluded that vibrator use was “not appreciable,” something done by less than 1 percent of the population. These days, vibrators are much more mainstream in part because they are readily available at mainstream stores, and many don’t look as obvious as they did in the past. Heck, you can even turn your iPhone into one. Keep reading »

Celibacy In The City

It was about a year ago that I realized it was time to just make a commitment.

If I had a checklist for where I was in my life, it would have looked pretty good: late 30s, living in Manhattan, freelance writer, founder of an improv school, volunteering for an organization dedicated to creating a better future, plenty of good friends – all dimensions accounted for.

Well almost. It was everything but “a man.”

I was one of those “date a few times and then be inseparable for two years” people. When I moved to NYC in 2001, “Sex and the City” was at its peak. That show and its promise of the perfect city life for a young single woman was a factor in me moving from LA. I know, it’s sad. But it just shows how deep and powerful the desire to find — and how much fun it is to look for — that one guy really is. Keep reading »
