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?

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 »
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 »
This new AIDS Awareness campaign from One Life finally uses sex to sell an effective message — when you sleep with him, you’re sleeping with everyone in his past. Click on over to Trendhunter to see a few more graphic images — including a woman giving a blowjob to a handgun. One more image, after the jump… Keep reading »
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]
- A new “molecular” liquid condom has been developed that would prevent the transmission of AIDS during intercourse. The condom consists of a vaginal gel that turns semisolid in the presence of sperm, trapping the AIDS virus. [Medical News Today] – Sounds promising!
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]

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]
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 »
