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!
As a side note, the blog Copyranter suggests that the ad would have been more effective and interesting without the woman’s arm, and just the scratched table. [Copyranter.blogspot.com] Keep reading »
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 »
In a weird twist of fate, I came to inherit a collection of pornographic novels from the ’60s. Among these books, however, were some, ahem, “educational materials,” including The Art of Erotic Seduction (1967), by the notable psychiatrist Dr. Albert Ellis (pictured), a book aimed at young boys on the topic of getting into ladies’ pants. Throughout, Ellis explains — in hilarious detail and outdated (now) language — makeout tactics, the logic behind the female psyche (ha!), and eventually, how to engage her in “soul kissing.” Here, some passages to entertain.

My hot friend/man slut, Eric, who gets more booty than a pirate, has made me swear to keep his big gay secret for months. But over the weekend, I got him to tell me everything he knows about the techie version of cruisin’. Or as he put it, “Fine, you can tell the breeders about Grindr.” Yay! Grindr is an iPhone application for those looking for one-night stands. It will show you photos of potential hookups and map out the exact location of men in your neighborhood just looking to get in your pants. Well, not our pants, perse, since it’s “The go-to place for gay, bi, and curious men to meet.” Sigh. On the upside: “Location-based Grindr is FREE, FAST, and FUN.” Sounds promising, no? If Grindr were to cross over to straight users, would you use it? [Grindr]

This oral sex-inspired Sprite commercial, which apparently was banned in Germany, is the most sexual advertisement we’ve ever seen. And it’s kinda icky, to boot. Definitely not safe for work…unless you work at Sprite, probably. Keep reading »
Does seeing a used condom wrapper instantly make you want to hop in the sack? Well, Durex thinks so. In a new commercial for their rubbers, the company encourages people of all ages and sexual orientations to bump it out. One couple starts the trouble when their Durex condom wrapper flies out the window and flutters around town to a catchy tune, sexing up whomever it touches. A teen couple stops “studying” when they see the wrapper (like they really were anyway), gramps and granny skip tea time to get their kettles boiling, two male cops realize their “man-in-uniform” fantasies, and a woman closes the shutters to heat up a cocktail party … much like rich British people do on weekends. In fact, this commercial would be a great visual in British sex ed classes. Watch and get inspired. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Buffin’ the muffin. Tiptoeing through the two lips. Five knuckle gusset shuffle. Coochie cuddling. And, if you’re Irish, Tickling me Elmo. We all do it and we all have our favorite euphemisms for it—so why can’t we talk about it? Keep reading »

Yesterday, we suggested to you some sexy, pornographic reads from the Victorian Era. In today’s installment of alternative ways to get your porn: sleazy 60s novels. These series started flourishing just as sexual morals were finally loosening up—when Elvis captured America’s heart (and loins), and Nabokov’s Lolita was finally accepted as a non-pornographic work. While there are a bevy of options out there, the titles from Liverpool Library Press are particularly raunchy (and hilarious). Far from being politically correct, the quick reads feature titles like The Panty Salesman, Family Love, and The Unholy Master. Yet those are tame in comparison to some of the downright offensive ones like Nazi Joy Camp, Apache Vengeance, Rape Riot, and A Family Sandwich. Okay, fine, maybe these are more hilarious than they are seductive.
While they’re out of print, you can still get your hands on copies via used and vintage booksellers. After the jump, some excerpts. Keep reading »
Back in March, the State of New Jersey actually tried to ban Brazilian waxes after two women got infections from unsanitary salons. In neighboring New York City, one woman was even hospitalized for 15 days after she got a bad infection from going bald at a dirty spa. The poor gal almost lost her leg from cellulitis. But in the face of those cases, an industry that thrives on hairy situations wasn’t just going to hide in the bush! As we ladies know, all salons aren’t created equal, some are just nasty. That’s no reason to penalize the clean peeps who are fighting the good fight against body hair, especially during bikini season. So, luckily for those visiting the Jersey shore beaches this summer, the ban did not stand! Or as spa proprietress, Linda Orsuto, said: “The government has been picking our pockets for so long, it was like: ‘Just stay out of our pants, will you?’” Ha! Well, it’s good to have a sense of humor about the man trying to keep you down, but when it comes to our downtown, you gotta be smart. Here’s what you need to know if you’re going to get a bikini wax. Keep reading »
