Have a hard time directing traffic through your tunnel of love? Well, there’s a new light-up merkin (that’s a wig for your lady bits) on the market. Seemingly made from troll hair, the furball for your feminine side has also got LED lights with two “lure” modes so you can literally flash the object of your affection. Plus, you can direct the light to hold their gaze — nothing like blinding a partner right as they get to see you naked! To get the faux hair down there, all you’ve got to do is place it on with the patented toupee tape. That sticky stuff lasts up to six weeks, but beware, the company behind the merkin, Playazon, whose marketing tagline is, oddly enough, the “online source for that burning sensation,” also warns, “We strongly advise NOT to use this tape as an impromptu waxing substitute — IT CAN REMOVE MORE THAN JUST YOUR HAIR!” Eek! Even at a reasonable $45, this flashlight clearly isn’t gonna turn anyone on. [Trend Hunter]
This weekend’s New York Times Sunday Magazine had a lengthy feature on SeekingArrangements.com, an online dating site which matches affluent men (or at least men willing to shill out what money they have) with women who are willing to trade companionship and often sex in exchange for money, gifts, and other perks. Half of these sugar daddies are married, while the vast majority of the sugar babies are in their ’20s. The best news of all for these guys? Sugar babies outnumber sugar daddies 10 to 1. Brandon Wade, Seeking Arrangement’s 38-year-old founder and chief executive, says, “We stress that these relationships are mutually beneficial. We ask people to really think about what they want in a relationship and what they have to offer. That kind of upfront honesty is a good basis for any relationship.” Keep reading »
Remember those pamphlets you got during awkward Sex Ed classes back in junior high that said, “Am I Normal?” and featured a frizzy-haired 13-year-old girl wearing a worried look? Inside the pamphlet were various facts and statistics about puberty and sex that did as much to ease your nerves as a trip to the mall with mom to shop for a new bra. Well, you may be older and wiser now and more comfortable in your skin, but if you’re like me, you’re still a little bit curious what constitutes “normal” between the sheets and under one’s clothes. After the jump, a list from LifeScience.com of ten surprising — and, not so surprising — sex statistics. Keep reading »
Adult film star Marilyn Chambers, who became the face of the “porno chic” movement of the ’70s, has died at 57. The star of one of the most famous adult movies in history, “Behind the Green Door,” Marilyn Ann Briggs started out a far cry from the adult industry. Born into a middle-class family and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, her most famous mainstream modeling gig was as a mother holding a baby on the cover of a box of Ivory Snow soap. In 1972, the San Francisco-based Mitchell brothers approached Chambers about starring in “Green Door.” After the movie’s premiere, Proctor & Gamble dumped her from their Ivory Snow campaign and recalled all product and advertising with her image on it. Over the following years, Chambers continued to return to the adult movie industry and confessed to having struggled with alcohol and drug addictions. Yesterday, she was found dead in her Santa Clarita mobile home by her daughter. The cause of death remains unknown. Keep reading »
Trichomoniasis is a very common STD among both men and women. Ladies, that hot guy you met at the club last night can spread it to you without ever knowing he has it. You also could unknowingly give it to him. Trichomoniasis can weaken the immune system and make an infected person more susceptible to other STDs, including HIV. Pregnant women who are infected are at risk for delivering early or having a baby with low birth weight. Are you thinking twice about your sexual behavior now?
1. Both men and women can be infected, but because men often experience few to no symptoms, it can seem to only affect women. That is so untrue.
2. Trichomoniasis spreads easily and quickly. Because symptoms of trichomoniasis are often mild to nonexistent, this STD can be spread quickly and easily. It is one of the more common STDs. Women are more likely to have symptoms than men are, but both can be infected.
3. Symptoms often are mild or nonexistent, but women should look for abnormal discharge. If you’re smelling a bit foul down there, that’s also a sign of infection. There may be pain or discomfort during urination or sex. Itching or other genital irritations also may occur. Men don’t usually have symptoms, but some include burning or irritation during urination or an unusual discharge. Keep reading »
Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. Now, let’s get this party started…
After blathering on and on about anal sex, herpes sores, and stanky vajayjay’s, I, Dr. V, am going to say something that will really shock you! I have never, ever had sex without a condom. Ever. Not even once. Keep reading »
Peter owning up to Googling me on our first date should have been the first warning sign. Don’t get me wrong: I Google, you Google, we all Google acquaintances. Doing it in private is one thing. Saying it out loud is another.
“Did I tell you who I work for?” I asked. It was technically a blind date, as we’d corresponded only a few times through an online dating service.
“Oh, no, but I think I know,” he said.
“How is that possible?”
“Oh, well … I Googled you.” Point blank. I Googled you. Keep reading »
April is STD Awareness Month, and we asked you to share your STD-related stories so we could learn from
your each other’s mistakes. If you have a tale involving sores, Valtrex, or a judgy gynecologist, send an email to email@example.com. We will keep your identity anonymous.
I wanted to let you know about my experience with an STD because although I feel uncomfortable telling anyone else about it, I think it’s important for other people to be aware. In November I noticed bumps on the outside of my genital region and thought they were just pimples. They didn’t go away, and when I told my boyfriend he freaked and said he had them too. He blamed me for getting infected, but I hadn’t been with anyone else since we started dating! Keep reading »
I try to keep an open mind when it comes to other peoples’ fetishes, though there are some things I draw the line at (anything involving bodily substances, for one). This particular fetish, however, just scares, rather than disgusts me. It seems that, like Buffalo Bill before them (remember “Silence of the Lambs”) there’s a certain type of guy that gets off on actually wearing the “skins” of latex sex dolls, face and all. Called “masking” or “femskins,” these peeps are apparently prominent enough that they had a convention (no word on why it was canceled). And there’s video! [via Asylum] Keep reading »
A new spray called PSD502 has been developed that delays premature ejaculation up to six times longer, according to a study of 300 European men. Minute men and disgruntled women everywhere rejoice.
The men were all clinically diagnosed with premature ejaculation and received either a placebo or the spray which contains 7.5 milligrams of lidocaine and 2.5 mg of prilocaine. Five minutes before intercourse, the men sprayed their wangs and used a stopwatch to record the time from penetration to ejaculation. The treatment group went from 0.6 minutes to 3.8 minutes of sex compared one minute in those who used the placebo spray. Seventy-four-percent of the men in the treatment group could last 2 minutes before ejaculating while only 22 percent could last that long in the placebo group. Keep reading »
