Recession Blues Hit The Sex Doll Business

By now, you’ve probably heard of RealDolls. They’re those lifelike, anatomically correct silicone sex dolls that costs thousands of dollars. They’ve appeared in movies (“Lars and the Real Girl”), on TV (Howard Stern, natch), and in books (Still Lovers). These days, though, it seems the love doll industry is taking a hit. In these tough economic times, not every guy who longs for a synthetic lover with a fully articulated internal armature has the means to buy one. Sniff. The man who dreamed of spending $6,499 on a life partner with a choice of vagina attachments may be S.O.L. Thankfully, the folks at RealDoll.com are offering some unique deals. “Order a RealDoll, RealDoll2 or Male RealDoll2 and get a FREE FACE!!” the website advertises. “Order a Female Flat Back Torso get the Head Kit FREE!” You know, this 21st century depression might not be such a bad thing if it means free faces and head kits for lonely guys looking for women with removable visages.

Condom Ads Suggest You Rub One Out

This is another one of those ads that I just can’t figure out. It’s for condoms, apparently. Or a condom shop? I’m confused. And there’s something in there about rubbing one out, from what I gather. I Believe in Advertising‘s explanation doesn’t exactly help either: “Metaphor of the condoms like rubber gum and his utilization ‘to erase’ evidences.” HUH? WHAT? Totally confused. Maybe, if you use condoms, there will be no traces of … something … bad? I don’t know! Practice safe sex. That’s all I can figure out. Maybe one of you can explain it to me?

Alabama Not Such a Sweet Home For The Sex Toy Industry

In a supreme stroke of moronic-ness, this Friday Alabama’s Supreme Court upheld a 1998 ban on selling sex toys on Friday. It’s still perfectly legal to go Down South on yourself in private, thank God. But Alabama’s highest court said the legislature is allowed to ban the sale of sex tales in public, meaning it’s a crime to sell someone a vibrator or a paddle! A sex shop in Hoover, AL, called Love Stuff challenged the ban on the grounds it violated a horny person’s right to sexual privacy, yet the heat-addled judicial brains in Alabama upheld the ban as matter of public morality. Sorry, but the only thing morally wrong with this is making the good folks of Alabama wait 3-5 business days for a vibe to come in the mail. [The Birmingham News] Keep reading »

The Trojan 2GO Makes Buying Condoms More Discreet

Some people are still embarrassed to buy condoms. Gasp! How dare anyone know they have safe sex? To make purchasing and carrying condoms more discreet, Trojan brand condoms has created the Trojan 2GO, a pocket-sized package that contains two condoms. The hard plastic package makes it safe to stow condoms anywhere, even that abyss of a pocketbook you carry around, and the package can be snapped in two secure pieces so you can use the condoms individually or share with a friend. The Trojan 2GO is also the first condom you can find at the cash counter instead of at the back of the store. It comes in a choice of “Her Pleasure” or “Ultra Thin.” Check out the Trojan 2GO in action in Cobra Starship‘s “Good Girls Go Bad” video, starring Leighton Meester. Keep reading »

Scary New Masturbation Device For Dudes

Yeah, so there’s pretty much nothing about this video that doesn’t freak me out. The obsession with hygiene. The fact that no identifiable human appears in it. That the product is called “The Flip Hole.” Say hello to a guy’s new best friend when it comes to high-tech self-pleasuring. Designed by the people who think masturbating with robo-eggs is a good idea, what we have here is a plastic vagina with a ribbed interior. Dudes stick their peen into the hole. And then … the magic happens? I don’t know. Sometimes men confuse me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Robot Prostitutes May Be The Tourist Attraction Of The Future

These days, there are robots to do everything. Build cars. Vacuum floors. They’re even taking the place of fashion models on the runway. What’s next? According to one futurologist, robot prostitutes may be appearing on the horizon in the not-too-distant future. Tourism futurologist Dr. Ian Yeoman predicts that robot call girls could play a part in the future of tourism. Rather than seeking out the great outdoors, travelers will pursue manufactured experiences. They’ll be served drinks by robot bartenders, stay in rooms that change colors (perhaps according to one’s mood?), and room services will include robot sex workers that give tourists happy endings. What’s the appeal of sex with an android? For one thing, robot sex partners would be guaranteed disease-free. But what could replace the human touch? A fembot, apparently. [Belfast Telegraph]

Sex Without A Condom = Good For Your Mental Health

It’s no secret that condoms are no fun to use, but a new study says that having unprotected sex may actually be better for your mental health.

When Stuart Brody of the West of Scotland University, Paisley, asked 99 women and 111 men about sexual pleasure, he found that the ones who go bareback handle stress better and experience less depression. Humans might be biologically programed to enjoy unprotected sex, Brody theorized, since we were boinking for thousands of years without Durex Pleasuremax.

There are lots of other theories, though. Maybe people who don’t use protection want to start families and are at an emotionally-ready and healthy place to begin with. Or, maybe unprotected sex, while more risky, just feels more intimate and that makes everybody happier! [Scotsman]

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]
