Once upon a time, porn stars aspired to cross over to the mainstream. Now, Hollywood actresses aspire to become porn stars. Actress, model, and single-handed supporter of the Lucite stripper shoe industry Shauna Sand is the latest Tinseltown pseudo-star with a sex tape. Vivid Video, the adult movie industry’s leading production company and the force that brought the world the Kim Kardashian sex tape, says it’s preparing to release “Shauna Sand Exposed” on Oct. 19. Meanwhile, Sand is protesting to anyone who will listen that, yes, she made an X-rated home video with her boyfriend, but “I certainly didn’t sign off on this and Vivid has no right to put it out.” Sand is no shrinking violet. She’s appeared in Playboy sans clothes already. But is this really a “homemade sex tape”? Judging by the trailer, the lighting, the angles, and the fact that Sand keeps looking at the damn camera, it looks like this video was made for the sole purpose of selling it. The release is timed to coincide with the debut of “Leave It to Lamas,” which costars Lorenzo Lamas, Sand’s ex-husband. In Hollywood, the best revenge turns a profit. Keep reading »
In this week’s Savage Love column, a guy (for convenience, I’m assuming it was a dude, but it could have been a woman) wrote in saying he’d coined the clever term “procrasturbation” and wanted help getting it into dictionaries. Procrasturbation, he explained, means “to waste time by pleasuring yourself.” He said he wrote Merriam-Webster back in 2004 about having the word included in their dictionary, but was told:
“Your coinage is clever, but I’m afraid that cleverness is not the criterion on which a word is entered into our dictionaries … For ‘procrasturbate’ to be entered, it will need to appear in a number of well-read print sources for a good number of years. When we’ve collected enough citations for the word, we will enter it into our dictionary.”
I happen to like the word, so in an effort to help get it into Merriam-Webster, I’m printing it here. So, what have you, readers? Are you procrasturbators? Do you regularly “waste time by pleasuring yourself”? Keep reading »
We’re not going to lie. Women are a fickle sort. When it comes to sex, some women like this, some women like that, and some women don’t know what the hell they want. One thing we are sure of, though, is if you’re bad in bed — at least, in our opinion. Maybe it’s us. Maybe it’s you. But if the sparks aren’t flying when we’re banging uglies, it could be because we think you don’t have what it takes in the bedroom. What’s up with that? Find out the top five reasons we think you don’t cut it, after the jump. Keep reading »
When male journalists go deep, they go to Iraq. When female journalists go deep, they put a “vagina mint” in their hoo-ha. Since we here at The Frisky are ahead of the curve on all things vagina-related, we told you about Linger vagina mints way back in August. They’re like Altoids for your vagina. We didn’t try the product ourselves, because our cooters are fresh like that, but we did ask some dudes what they thought of the idea. Mostly, their responses were, like, “Ew, gross.” Over at Mother Jones, writer Jen Phillips got herself a tin of vagina Altoids and almost took the product for a test-drive. Then she read the box, which says they’re “for novelty use only.” So, wary of a yeast infection, she decided not to Linger. That’s gonzo journalism for you? [Mother Jones] Keep reading »
This is the conversation that ensued when I sent Jessica the link to a post on the Sqweel, a 10-tongued sex toy:
Jessica: Oh my God! That’s so awesome!!!!!! I want one!
Amelia: I DO TOO!
J: What if it goes too fast though? It looks like it could bruise your clit!
A: I bet you can vary the speeds. Keep reading »

In the November issue of Marie Claire, dating blogger Maura Kelly writes about a guy she dated briefly who confessed to enjoying “a kind of sex that people don’t usually associate with straight men.” Oh yes, Kelly’s man liked to take it from behind, courtesy of a strap-on attached to his female partner. (Like the one Madonna bought for her and Guy Ritchie in the photo at left!) He assured Kelly he wasn’t gay or bisexual, he just liked to be dominated. And Kelly complied, giving him what he wanted for the few months they dated. I found this whole story fascinating, as I’ve always, admittedly, been a little curious about what it would be like to be THAT dominant in bed. To be the one doing the actual penetrating, I suppose. Here’s how Kelly describes it:
As I moved my hips and did my thing, I felt strangely removed from the experience. The kinky deed seemed unsexual and anything but intimate — after all, my primary erogenous zone was covered up by a giant fake penis.
