Some women would be thrilled to have a guy who didn’t want head, ever, but not me. I knew one guy was not going to be a match when he gently pushed my mouth away when I moved to go down on him, saying, “That’s okay; I don’t usually come that way anyway.” To me, that was all the more reason to try! But he wasn’t offering up the statement as the start of a conversation; that was it. I didn’t bother expressing my disappointment, just vowed not to go home with him again. Keep reading »
Now that you’ve made babies, what do you do with them? Well, when you’re shopping in the “Little by Little Adult Concept Store”, a sex shop in Hillcrest, Australia, you hand them over to the on-site babysitters! While you go in the back room and buy naughty things to help you make more of those little guys, they’ll mind the little rugrats. Unfortunately, some haters in the small town are appalled by their “family-friendly” policies. After a couple official complaints, the City Council is on the sex shop’s case. Since the store is sandwiched between a Lutheran Church and a mall with a dental surgery office, a bakery, a drug store, and a hair salon, some residents claim that sex toys just don’t fit in with the rest of the neighborhood. The shop was recently served a “show cause” notice and now they must prove that they’re serving the community in order to be allowed to stay in business. Manager Monica Bekkers doesn’t understand what all the whining is about, saying, “Everyone has sex.” Well, maybe not the local people who have so much time on their hands they’re willing to file charges! But, in defense of her in-house kiddie care for customers, she also adds, “It only takes a child eight minutes to die in a hot car, and I don’t see the harm in letting your child sit in our shop and colour-in while mum or dad look about….Everyone who works in this shop is a parent themselves.” Plus, all the dirty merch is enclosed in the back room where minors aren’t allowed. So, really, what’s the big deal, people? They’re just trying to put the strip in strip mall! [Courier Mail] Keep reading »
Amy Sedaris was hilarious on a recent episode of “Chelsea Lately” — seriously, I would love to have a slumber party with those two. The best part is when she says she used to go to acting auditions and perform monologues from the female body tomb “Our Bodies Ourselves”. Classic. Keep reading »
What could torture a dominatrix? Only a bad economy! It’s been a world of pain for the sex workers who have been complaining about the recession. While prostitutes are reporting record business and lay people are doing it like bunnies, the niche market has been beaten down. Keep reading »
These days, America can’t get enough when it comes to recession sex. For women, former Us Weekly and Star editor Bonnie Fuller finds, the upside to the stock market downslide is “more sex.” To explore where the economy meets the libido, Fuller toured sex shops, talked to sexperts, and found the business of recession sex is booming. At sex toy boutique Babeland, sex toys sales are on the rise. The owner of high-end lingerie store La Petite Coquette reports lingerie sales are up. Why? Because women are looking to make their financially down-trodden men happy in the bedroom, if not the boardroom. Fuller’s sources say people are having more sex now that a recession is dawning for a variety of reasons: because sex takes our minds of our money problems, because staying home and having sex is cheaper than going out and having dinner, because if women can’t get off on shopping, we’re going to have to get off on something — or somebody. Of course, guys are finding other ways to get off, but women may find the recession may not be such a bad thing — sexually, at least. How’s the recession affected your sex life? Keep reading »
Sexual relations are difficult. Telling someone how you feel is nerve-wracking. Breaking up with someone is hard. Trying to talk to someone about what you want in the sack is stressful. But nothing beats the awkwardness that you might have just given a sexy time friend an STD. Even if you desperately want to ignore that partner, you can’t ignore the problem. Thanks to inSPOT.org, the non-profit Hallmark for STD’s, you can avoid the uncomfortable phone call and simply send the ones you’ve loved free e-cards to notify them of the situation. They’ve got cheeky postcard slogans like “You’re too hot to be out of action.” All you have to do is select a message about what’s making you catchier than a pop song and you can even notify them of places to get tested in their neighborhood. Best of all, you can send these e-cards anonymously! So, remember, just because you like to spread your legs, it doesn’t mean you have to be embarrassed when you hit a bump. Just be sure to pass the information along!

Whether you agree with the sometimes tawdry, often, er, “illuminating” material that makes up the content of AskMen.com, you must also know that it is the largest men’s lifestyle destination on the internet. Every once in awhile, they do the Great Male Survey, which, given the vast numbers of participants, projects an arguably legitimate big picture look into what’s going on in today’s male mind. Surprisingly, the last study indicated some startling results for all of the women out there that stereotype men as the kind of cads that might show up in a Jay McInerney novel. To wit, 42 percent of men claimed they wouldn’t bother pursuing a relationship with a woman who wasn’t “wife material,” (jeez, what ever happened to pursuing a woman for cheap sex?), a whopping 70 percent believe strongly in marriage despite overwhelmingly discouraging divorce statistics, and over half of the respondents don’t fear commitment, and wait for it—only 18 admitted that was due to sacrificing the kind of freedom that accompanies singlehood; the rest cited emotional fears. Aww… Keep reading »
No matter where I seem to live in New York City, my neighbor is always a “handy shack,” aka a massage parlor that doles out happy endings. Currently, I live next to a place with a basement entrance, a neon red light, and middle-aged masseuses who wait for customers behind veiled curtains. It purports itself to be a Chinese Healing Center — hey, as we all know, there are many benefits to sexual healing. The handwritten sign in the window advertises a deal for “61 minutes.” My best friend thinks that extra minute is all the time their clients need to prematurely ejaculate, but I think it really says 69 illegibly.
We see men go and come there, and I even have a married friend who frequents it. It’s always hilarious when I catch him with a big smile on his way out. Parlors like that are a dime a dozen in the city, but nothing tops where I lived fresh out of college. The infamous Russian Turkish Bath House of the East Village was the building in my backyard. I recommend taking a gander at their video to get a sense of the experience. I myself spent many a night watching the free porn that went on in their outdoor pool, so, I was not surprised to read that they are…how should I put it… a full-service operation. Keep reading »
My story sucks, so I’m not going to tell it. BUT I will tell you that Willie Nelson was on the stereo, a String Cheese Incident (a terrible jam band) poster was on the wall, and the guy was of the opposite political affiliation than me. But what about the rest of you? We sent our girl Lori out to ask total strangers about their first times. Shockingly, she didn’t get all that many dirty looks! Keep reading »
According to a new study, HPV is moving on up…to mouths! That’s right, just when you thought Gardasil and Cervarix solved all your problems, now you have to worry about what else you’ve been opening wide. Since the ’70s. throat cancer cases have doubled, and the research shows HPV is to blame, with 39% of all occurrences caused by the human papilloma virus. Before you go cutting your man off from his favorite foreplay, listen to this: men are 35% more likely than women to develop oral cancer from HPV. Sheesh, making a new man go downtown may be riskier than you both think! Still, there’s more bad news — as of yet, there is no way to test male genitalia for HPV or anyone’s throat to see if they’re a carrier. So, it’s a roll of the dice and doctors fear you may even be able to contract the virus from kissing. There goes all the fun! Since this throat cancer link is a new revelation, the cervical cancer vaccines haven’t been tested or proven to prevent it. So, deep throat, you might want to use a condom for oral sex or just give that random stranger a handy and call it a night! [ABC News] Keep reading »
