Have you ever heard of furries? Furries are people who dress up like animals. Not like a mascot. Like, that’s your thing. That’s what you’re into. Some people are even “furry lifestylers.” Every summer, furries from around the world gather in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for Anthrocon, a furry convention, upon which the media descends to get footage of people running around in fur suits. Furries, though, get upset because the media keeps making lewd suggestions, like Anthrocon is some kind of furry orgy. Here, a guy named Carl explains how furries can “put the best face on furry fandom” when talking to the media, advising furries that they should tell the media that they don’t get off sexually on running around in fur suits. Sure ya’ don’t, Mr. Furry. [Lindsayism] Keep reading »
Some lucky couples feel electricity during sex. That’s not quite what happened here, but the ground did shake around Jens Gottlieb and Lisa Gruhn as they were getting hot and heavy in the woods as a storm rolled in. A bolt of lightning struck the ground, almost toasting the coital couple. They got up and bolted (ha!), running completely naked. But they got lost in the rain and couldn’t find their car. Thankfully, another driver saw the nakie couple bumbling around the woods and called the police. The adventurous pair were found and led back to their car in dry clothes. I’m guessing the officers who found them are still telling that story around the station … and to everyone else they know. Because, hey, it got around to us. [Metro UK] Keep reading »
Will the adult movie spoofs ever end? We think not. Now that Porn Valley has spoofed “The Cosby Show,” Sarah Palin’s career, and Lindsay Lohan’s life, they’re tackling the realty TV dating trainwreck that is “Rock of Love” with the aptly titled “Crock of Love.” Starring Evan Stone, the porn star who appeared in that XXX-clip that “accidentally” aired during the Super Bowl, as Brüte Michaels, viewers will witness “rose ceremonies, bitchy girl fights, emotional testimonials and fame-hungry women baring their souls (among other things) as they try to scratch, claw and sleep their way into Brüte’s life.” Sounds about right. Release date is Aug. 4 — if you’re, uh, into that sort of thing. Keep reading »
“Do women have to be naked to get into U.S. museums? Less than 3% of the artists in the Met. Museum are women, but 83% of the nudes are female.” I have this hanging above my desk, compliments of a Guerrilla Girls’ ad. Artist Kristen Copham is responding to just this imbalance.
I spoke with Kristen today for the approximately 45 minutes it took her to paint my portrait – the 829th painting in a series of 1,000 that she hopes to complete by the end of this year. Kristen is the owner and director of the New York Studio Gallery, at the corner of Stanton and Suffolk in the LES. Just as she started painting me (I volunteered for her project), she began telling me about a series of male nudes that she is working on, saying “It’s my response to women being objectified.” Continue reading… Keep reading »
This week, I got a letter from a lady who is wondering if she can let her date play Moses and part the Red Sea.
“I have recently been flirting with an old hookup and we have both been hinting at wanting to rekindle the affair. We live in different cities, and he is coming to visit this weekend and I have a suspicion that we’ll be having sex. Unfortunately, my period is due to come on Friday! How do I go about having sex during my period without getting everything messy and/or grossing both of us out? I read that you can have sex while wearing the Instead Cup, so I’m totally on that one and hope it works!” — Fantastic Timing
According to a new study by Trojan condoms, the average American has sex 84 times a year. Just to put it in perspective, that’s seven dozen donuts, two sets of dominoes to get up, the number of keys you can tickle on a piano, and double the age of silver fox Anderson Cooper — that’s how much ass the average person gets. And 73 percent of dudes and 53 percent of women say they still want more. Hey, join the club! I have to say, 84 doesn’t seem so bad to single-gal me. Sheesh, all this “research” is making me wonder, did the magical penis fairy forget me? Or is this a clever ploy by a condom company to get me to slut it up? Either way, I was downright surprised by how much everyone around me said they’re getting it. How much sex are you having, Frisky readers? Give it up in the comments. Also, let me know how you handle all the chaffing. Note to self: Quit everything to make enough time for sex. I will not be outdone by my fellow Americans! Apparently, it’s my patriotic right to be satisfied. [Seattle Pi] Keep reading »
A new study shows that for women, desire follows – not precedes – sexual arousal. Rosemary Bason of the University of British Columbia explains that, “for many women, desire is not the cause of lovemaking, but rather, its result.” Women often begin sexual experiences feeling sexually neutral, she says, but by the end of the sex sesh, they often feel more aroused than they had before they started fooling around.
Perhaps this is because most women don’t orgasm during intercourse. So, when the man is “satisfied” post-orgasm, the woman probably never reached her climax, and is, well, still wanting to! Obviously. Keep reading »
In this Italian ad for a female enhancement cream (“O Gel”) made by Durex, a woman is having such an intense orgasm that she’s somehow managed to rake trails into her nightstand with her nails (girl clearly has acrylics).
Lord knows the Italians find entertainment in characterizing women as devilish evil-doers, a prime example being the “Foxy Knoxy” case that gave Italy’s tabloids a field day.
Here again we see a woman who has been cast as a vixen with a violent edge. What do you think? Does this Durex ad lend an animalistic/too violent quality to the image of women? Or does something about it ring true for the crowd who likes rough sex? Leave your response in the comments below!
Authors of a new paper in Contraception magazine say that the withdrawal method is as effective as condoms when it comes to pregnancy prevention. They say “typical use” of the withdrawal method results in pregnancy 18 percent of the time, versus 17 percent for typical use of condoms. The lead author, Rachel K. Jones, told the New York Times that she and her colleagues wanted to publish the paper because the pullout method was being dismissed, and some people had the impression that it was akin to not using contraception at all. She added that it seemed logical to compare the withdrawal method with condoms because health care professionals advocate condom use, even though that method also has flaws. Now, however, some educators and physicians fear that putting out this new message will cause teenagers to abandon condoms altogether. They also point out that unlike condoms, the withdrawal method can’t prevent sexually transmitted diseases and infections. The pullout method is less problematic in marriages and other monogamous, long-term relationships, but what happens when a young man gets it wrong or doesn’t withdraw when he said he would? Can horny teen boys really be trusted to pull out? Keep reading »
