For years, adult toy makers have been unable to sell their wares on TV commercials, but a new ad from Trojan featuring the company’s Tri-Phoria vibrator has made it on TV — by not saying the word “vibrator.” Instead, the unseen, boxed tool is referred to as “three massagers in one” that may result in “screams of ecstasy, curled toes, a sudden glow, and intense waves of pleasure.” The commercial doesn’t run only in the wee hours either, but, for example, during the day and early evening on Comedy Central during “The Daily Show.” Some — surely, sex toy sellers among them — may see the ad as “progress,” but it seems silly that in this day and age a vibrator is still taboo. Hey, it’s just a “personal massager.” [NY Times]

Well, this is truly disturbing. In her latest movie, porn star-turned-director and alt-porn pioneer Joanna Angel has sex with her own inflatable sex doll. I mean, the one that is her. The movie is “Doppelganger,” which is German for lookalike, basically, or evil twin. I think this line pretty much sums up the plot, per the press release: “You won’t believe your eyes when the queen of alt-porn’s inflatable twin comes alive just to wreak havoc with her friends and career.” I hate it when my inflatable twin comes alive to wreak havoc on my life! Angel says working with her blow-up twin was a nightmare. Okayyyy. So, I am going to skip this one.

Oh, no! Google Instant doesn’t like your filthy word searches! You may have noticed something new happening in Google lately. When you start to type in a word, the search engine “helps” you finish the word. At first I didn’t like it — I type super fast and Instant slows me down — but I’ve realized it actually does help. Except if I’m searching for penises! Or vaginas! Or porn. As Mashable points out, Instant offers no help if you’re looking for things sex related. For example, start typing in the word “penis.” Instead of finishing the wang word for you, it offers … “penny arcade.” Um, no. What about “vagina”? You get … Vagisil. That is not what I was looking for, Google. And the ever popular “porn”? You get nothing. No help for you, porn searchers! Google says it’s to protect the kiddies. What do you think?

Great! It’s the condom brand we’ve all been waiting for. Trojan has created a totally new condom, No One’s Pleasure, for those couples who are so not into intimacy. Designed for “ultra dissatisfaction,” these latex raincoats are perfect for men and women who want to maintain distance and discomfort. According to the box, these prophylactics “reduce the risk of intimate, fulfilling relationships.” Perfect! That they are “extra gritty.” Not so much. Choose from three styles: Frigid Touch, Extremely Oversensitive, and Ultra-Chafe: Super Dry. Ouch. [The Onion] Keep reading »
