Confession: I Hate My Gynecologist

Amelia McDonell-Parry | January 18, 2008 - 1:30 pm

Do any of you ladies kind of hate your gynecologist? I sort of do. I called in a refill on my birth control a couple days ago to a local pharmacy. The audio recording told me I didn’t have any more refills left, but that they would call my doctor for approval. Now, the last… More »

When Oprah talked about oral sex on her show, people were aghast at how slutty today’s teens had become. But author Tim Harford would probably disagree. In The Logic of Life, his follow-up to The Undercover Economist, Harford looks at various hidden human behaviors. One of his findings is that teens aren’t more promiscuous now… More »

Sit In Someone’s Lap, Literally

Amelia McDonell-Parry | January 16, 2008 - 4:36 pm

We love art students! They are so crafty in their free time. Like this lovely lady who’s selling a couch she made in college on Craigslist. FYI, it’s shaped like a vagina. But plush poonani comes at a price — the seller is asking $600 “and a loving home”, but does warn that the couch… More »

It’s Not Fair That Guys Are Incapable Of Getting Pregnant

Catherine Strawn | January 14, 2008 - 8:04 pm

The New York Times had an interesting op-ed piece entitled “Sex and the Teenage Girl” in yesterday’s paper. Basically, it brings up the fact that the effects of a pregnancy—whether it is terminated or the baby is given up for adoption—are lasting. The writer says that Juno is a fairy tale, albeit a very entertaining… More »

Figuring out whether or not you’re a swinger doesn’t seem like it would be all that difficult. There’s not really any gray area: Either you are, or you aren’t. So if you find yourself relating to a few of the “100 Signs You May Be a Swinger” but don’t consider yourself a swinger, there can… More »

Can You Judge Man’s Sexual Prowess By Man’s Best Friend?

Amelia McDonell-Parry | January 3, 2008 - 9:07 pm

She may play an awesome bitch on TV, but Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Susie Essman told Animal Fair magazine that you can tell how awesome a man is in bed based on his bitch — that is, his dog.

“You want a guy that’s good in bed? Find a guy with a Shih Tzu or… More »

Malaysia’s Minister of Health Stars In Sex Tape And Resigns

Catherine Strawn | January 2, 2008 - 5:30 pm

Malaysia’s minister of health, Chua Soi Lek, announced his resignation today after trying (and failing) to brave a sex-tape scandal. This proves that starring in a raunchy video is an unforgivable act outside of Hollywood, despite Kim Kardashian’s statement that “Everyone has sex with their boyfriend. Everyone takes pictures.” Before the minister’s tape came out,… More »

The Greatest Erotic Poet Of Our Time: R. Kelly

Amelia McDonell-Parry | December 28, 2007 - 2:00 pm

In our minds, R. Kelly’s 22-Chapter “Trapped In The Closet” series is right up there among great rock operas like The Who’s “Tommy” and Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. His ability to rhyme words that technically don’t rhyme is unparalleled. His imagination knows no bounds, otherwise we’re pretty sure Chapter 10 wouldn’t have featured a midget… More »

The Year In Sex Links

Catherine Strawn | December 27, 2007 - 7:00 pm

When it comes to viral content, nothing spreads faster than sex-related “memes.” (We could make a joke about how Lindsay Lohan’s legs spread faster, but that would be mean, so we won’t.) How else would you have any clue what “Two Girls, One Cup” refers to? So, in honor of end-of-the-year list making, Violet Blue… More »

Catherine Strawn | December 20, 2007 - 2:45 pm

Your roommate isn’t the only one under the impression that screaming loudly makes sex better. According to a new study, female monkeys call out before, during, and after doing it. But their screams’ purpose isn’t just to annoy monkeys in neighboring trees. The study concluded that the females’ yells make them more attractive to the… More »

At 1:08 a.m. EST on Saturday, December 22, people all over the world (you’re welcome to join!) will be taking part in a “synchronized global orgasm.” Started by the same people who took off their clothes and spelled “Peace” with their naked bodies in protest of the Iraq War, the Second Annual Global Orgasm for… More »

South African Teenagers Aren’t Getting Any

Catherine Strawn | December 18, 2007 - 3:54 pm

South African teenagers will have to delay any kissing or canoodling until they turn 16, or else they’ll be criminally charged. A new law makes it illegal for those under 16 to kiss or engage in any sexual activity (including oral), even if it’s consensual. Will this affect plot lines on the CW show LifeMore »

Syphilis Is a Nasty, Nasty Disease

Catherine Strawn | December 18, 2007 - 3:48 pm

The number of cases of syphilis is on the rise. In Britain, there are 10 times the number of cases there were a decade ago, and France has almost 16 times the number of cases that it did just three years ago. Thankfully, we have antibiotics these days, so if you get syphilis, you most… More »

Much like you suspected in high school, your Sex Ed teacher was full of…outdated information. While you were tortured with a slew of un-scientific reasons why you had to keep it in your pants until marriage, help is finally here for the next generation of blue-balled teens. A study of a cross section of Americans… More »

Husband Buys Wife Vibrator, Then Regrets It

Catherine Strawn | December 12, 2007 - 3:55 pm

In an attempt to spice things up, a 50-year-old man bought a vibrator for his wife, but now she seems to have lost interest in him. The husband knows she uses the vibrator, so he thinks it’s the vibrator’s fault that she doesn’t want to have sex with him anymore. This is kind of sad… More »
