While We Fight For Birth Control Coverage, Medicare Is Spending Millions On Penis Pumps

It's A Whole New Brand Of Double Standard!

We know that conservative Republicans go batshit insane over the idea of the Affordable Healthcare Act covering preventative health care like birth control. But thanks to “The Daily Show,” we now know that America has bigger problems, literally: Medicare is spending millions on penis pumps. The program has spent $172 million in the past five years, to be exact. Apparently there are a lot of limp penises in need in the United States. How did contraception manage to be considered a more controversial use of government money than a contraption that makes your dick big and hard? Of course, Samantha Bee addresses this hypocrisy in a way that nobody else could. [NARAL]

Cosmopolitan Blogger Experiments With Using Pizza As A “Sex Toy”

Cosmo is well on its way to owning the “food/sex experimentation” beat. First, Anna Breslaw attempted to masturbate on the NYC subway while eating a gyro, and now Mark Shrayber tried to use pizza as a “sex toy.” (At least it happened in the privacy of his own home.) The phrase “pizza as a sex toy” is probably conjuring images of mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce stuck to a thatch of pubic hair. Let me explain in more detail how one uses pizza as a “sex toy.” Hint: it’s not so different from the man who used a Domino’s Pizza as a gloryhole and burnt his penis or the teen who recently posted a video of himself fucking a hot pocket. Pizza sex is en trende, peeps! Keep reading »

Louisiana Lingerie Store Is Now Accepting Food Stamps For Edible Underwear

Kiss My Lingerie, a specialty adult shop in Gonzales, Louisiana, has posted a sign on it’s door indicating that it accepts most credit cards and EBT cards, which is federal-issued card for welfare and food stamps. The owner of the store says she began accepting EBT cards, better known as Louisiana Purchase cards, eight months ago because she didn’t want to “discriminate against customers.”

An anonymous woman who works nearby the shop found this development very upsetting. “We were told anything could be purchased there, with the food stamp card. No child I know eats edible underwear,” she said. Keep reading »

The 5 Best Sex Blogs That No Longer Exist

The-5-Best-Sex-Blogs-That-No-Longer-Exist

When other people think about their past and get a little misty, they might be thinking about things like their hometown and how their formative experiences there made them the adult they are today.

I, on the other hand, grew up op on the Internet. Many of my “old haunts” are sex blogs, and seeing some of my favorites go dark over the years has made me as wistful as others might be if they found out that their favorite, childhood roller rink burned down.

I found independently-written sex blogs shortly after my formal education ended (four years of abstinence-only sex ed). One errant click as I was looking for tips on how to shave “down there” without giving myself razor burn, and I was plunged into someone’s personal account of planning an orgy. Keep reading »

Starring In “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” Is Bringing Up All Sorts Of “Homophobic Insecurities” For Neil Patrick Harris

Starring-In-'Hedwig-And-The-Angry-Inch'-Is-Bringing-Up-All-Sorts-Of-'Homophobic-Insecurities'-For-Neil-Patrick-Harris

“Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”

Neil Patrick Harris talks about starring in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway and much, much more in this Out Magazine cover interview. You can always count on NPH to say interesting and provocative things, whether it be that drinking pineapple juice makes him “feel tropical” and makes his “semen taste delicious,” or that playing a character who dresses in drag is triggering his internalized homophobia. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is one of my all-time favorite plays, and when it ran off-Broadway the first time, I saw it 11 times because it was just so gripping and multi-dimensional for a one-man musical. I agree with creator James Cameron Mitchell, NPH is the ideal person to play the role. I can’t wait to see it. [Out]

Coming Soon To Your TV: Couples Having Sex In A Box

Leave it to the Brits to come up with the most out-of-the-box (well, actually, in-the-box) concept for a reality TV show. And leave it to the Americans to steal the idea. WE  has announced that it will produce its own version of the British show, “Sex Box.” It’s just what it sounds like. Couples who are having relationship issues go inside a soundproof box, have sex and discuss it immediately after with a panel of sexperts (including the great Dan Savage). Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Made A Sex Spreadsheet — Just Wait ‘Til You See Who’s On It

Lindsay-Lohan-Made-A-Sex-Spreadsheet----Just-Wait-'Til-You-See-Who's-On-It

According to the latest issue of In Touch, one drunken eve at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Lindsay Lohan made a list of all 36 of her famous, sexual conquests to impress her friends. Yes, because making a list of all the famous people you’ve fucked is the best way to impress people. An anonymous source who claims to have watched Lilo pen the sex spreadsheet on January 30, 2013 said,”It was her personal conquest list. She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside.”  Keep reading »

10 Things We Love About Chubs

10 Things We Love About Chubs

As much as we appreciate the obvious benefits and abilities of a rock hard cock, there’s something about a chub — a soft, malleable, half-erect penis — that makes it our second favorite penis form. Is it the shape? The texture? The fact that it hasn’t committed to anything yet?  The appeal of being able to decide if you want to have sex with it or play a game with it? Or maybe it’s how open and accepting it is, like a baby animal innocently exploring the world for the first time? All of the above, really. One thing’s for sure: in the grand hierarchy of penile potential, we don’t think chubs get nearly enough credit. It’s time to change that. Oh chubs, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…  Keep reading »

Dita Von Teese Thinks Women Should Seduce Themselves To Feel Sexy

  • Dita Von Teese recommends that to feel sexier, you should seduce yourself. That sounds smart in theory, but how does that work in practice exactly? [Harper's Bazaar]
  • This dater got so fed up with being rejected for unknown reasons that she started conducting dating exit interviews so she could get some constructive criticism. [xoJane]
  • We already knew this, but a new study proves that free birth control does not turn people into tramps. [Your Tango]
  • Some people are not happy with the “average” Barbie doll, Lammily, because she would have too many fat rolls in real life. Barbie just can’t win. [Newser]
  • These very bad realtors had sex in the house they were supposed to be selling. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Melissa Gira Grant, Author Of Playing The Whore: The Work Of Sex Work

Melissa Gira Grant Playing The Whore

If you’ve done any reading on the Internet about the business of sex work, chances are you’ve come across Melissa Gira Grant. She’s written about sex, politics, labor and tech everywhere from the UK’s Guardian to The Atlantic  to Jezebel and Valleywag, making her one of the top intellectuals to turn to when America needs an explanation about why we’re so weird about sex.

A former “web cam girl,” Grant just published her latest book, Playing The Whore: The Work Of Sex Work, which is unlike any book about sex work or feminism that I’ve ever read. In it, she critiques law enforcement’s treatment of actual or perceived sex workers; labor issues surrounding sex work; and the tendency for governments and some outreach workers to treat all sex workers as “victims” in need of being “rescued.” However complicated you might have thought issues pertaining to sex work were before, Grant’s excellent book is extraordinarily illuminating.

Grant recently spoke to me about “whore stigma,” feminism, police, and the media’s struggle to accurately cover sex workers. Our Q&A begins after the jump: Keep reading »
