I was lucky enough to sit down with Cindy Gallop in her ah-mazing Black Apartment (seriously, she could charge entry admission, that’s how cool it was) and find out more about her new site MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, which is endeavoring to socialize the final frontier — our sex lives. The site makes it possible for users to share and watch real world sex, messy bloopers and all. Cindy and I chatted about the difference between the real sex world and the porn world, how to initiate conversations about what you want in bed without bruising your partner’s ego, and the importance of owning a vibrator. Check it out! Oh, and if I look nervous, that’s only because there was a taxidermied snake eating a mongoose just out of frame, staring at me the whole time.
Milena Marinkovic of Serbia had a very specific dying wish: to make sure her husband didn’t look at any other women, even when she was dead.
Before her passing, Milena left detailed instructions for her husband Milan on how to carry out her final wishes. Specifically, she wanted her husband to hire a sculptor to create an exact replica of her vagina on her headstone from photographs she’d taken.
“I don’t want you chasing other women. This way you will always remember me,” she said in her letter. Keep reading »
Among life’s many distinctions, there is one that is a truly elite club that many of us will only dream of joining: the first porn start to do ___. Somebody has to be the first — think about i! Last we learned that “erotic actress” Sylvia Kristel, who appeared in the 1974 French film “Emmanuelle,” had died of cancer at age 60. She wasn’t just any “erotic actress,” though: Sylvia Kristel was heralded by none other than People magazine as “arguably the world’s first true porn star.” “Emmanuelle” is about the wife of a diplomat living in Bangkok and their many affairs and was one of the first films with sex in it to be shown in mainstream theaters.
So that got us thinking: which other pioneering porn stars deserve our accolades?
It’s almost hard to tell when it’s Halloween in the Kardashian-Jenner household. Why, this could just be another Tuesday night! Kris Jenner is trying on her Wonder Woman costume for size … supposedly for Halloween … and realized she needs to invest in some boob tape, stat. Too bad Kris didn’t realize her nip slip before she posted it to Instagram. [Styleite]
In Celebrityland, nip slips are far too easy to come by. Click onward for Kris Jenner’s nip slip and others!
I’m still trying to decide how I feel about the G-Shot, a surgical procedure available at Los Angeles’ Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of America, which claims to improve women’s sex lives by pumping up the G-spot with collagen. The injection, which increases the size of the G-spot to that of a quarter, takes aboout about 30 minutes, runs about $1,000 and lasts for four months. It’s kind of like Botox, or lip filler, only with the G-Shot you get
general local anesthesia. Phew. I would have been up all night terrorized by the thought of getting a shot in my vagina. (I can’t even type those words without grinding my teeth.) Keep reading »
If you think it’s a George of the Jungle you’re looking for in the bedroom, think again. Despite our fantasies of Don Draper or Christian Grey, it’s most likely a Michael Cera type who will be able to satisfy us the most sexually. A new Yale University study published in the Sex Roles journal (yes, that exists) found that men who believe they need to be dominant during playtime are less comfortable asking women about their sexual needs and discussing their own.
The study surveyed 357 women and 126 men ages 18 to 29, all heterosexual and sexually active, on their sexual confidence and assertiveness.
Turns out that adhering to traditional gender roles could damage a man’s confidence — and make him less likely to use protection. In the survey room, there was a bowl of female condoms with a sign that read: “Protect yourself and your partner. Please take some! Free Female Condoms.” The more the subjects believed in traditional power dynamics, the less they were likely to take the condoms. Read more…
