The first time I went in to get my intrauterine device, or IUD, my doctor asked me if I was in a relationship.
“Um, kind of?” I stammered. “I mean, no. But you know, I hear this is the way to go as far as, you know, protectiveness.”
“Hrm,” she said, flipping her chart closed. This was the first time I’d been to this gynecologist, who ran her practice in my tiny suburban hometown. I was 20, home from school on Christmas break, and tired of frantically eyeing the moon and waiting for my period once a month. Keep reading »
In a recent Vice article, straight man, Dave Schilling, called anal sex “the first stop on the Save My Relationship World Tour.” And he’s not just talking about giving, he’s talking about receiving as well:
“On more than one occasion, a woman has asked me if I wanted to do ‘butt stuff’ when it became clear that coitus wasn’t cutting it anymore. Assplay is a logical next step in a male/female sexual relationship. It’s taboo; it’s still kind of like standard heterosexual fucking since it’s also about putting something inside a hole and most importantly, the difficulty level is high … Sometimes, when all hope seems to be lost and the world is shrouded in darkness, my female sexual partner will ask to give rather than receive.” Keep reading »
Full Frontal Freedom is a coalition of artists and media professionals who are using their talent and creativity to raise awareness about the important issues this election year and remind you that it’s sexy to vote. “Our vote is our most powerful weapon in this democracy … All the money in the world cannot buy votes. We recognize that with creativity, innovation, passion and the power which comes from being on the right side of history, we can change hearts and minds in our favor,” says the website.
So, how do they do they plan to do this? By making funny, compelling and fun-to-watch videos, which educate while entertaining. Like “A Vagina, Interrupted,” which reminds us of how easily our rights may be violated if we don’t make our voices heard by voting. [Full Frontal Freedom]
Between my college course on the performativity of witchcraft, my thorough reading of the Malleus Maleficarum (in Olde English), my Bigfoot conspiracist boyfriend, my alien obsessed middle school teacher and my background in Jungian psychology, I have some thoughts on Ke$ha’s recent claim that she had sex with a ghost. Last week, while promoting her new single “Supernatural,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she “had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it,” she revealed.
These alleged “experiences” happened while Ke$ha was on a “spirit journey” by herself. Meaning, she traveled around the world, lived on a boat and did stuff like rehabilitate baby lions and swim with sharks. I’ve never had the time, nor the funding, to go on a spirit journey, but trust, I would if I could. My version of a “spirit journey” was participating in a Native American sweat ritual and having a pendulum reading by a psychic. Same difference, right? While I’ve never had ghost sex of any kind, I have had some bizarre supernatural experiences myself. So, I’m going to give Ke$ha the benefit of the doubt here, but still temper it with some skepticism. Here are my theories about her claim that she had supernatural sex.
Like Tim Patch aka Pricasso, I also get all my best ideas when I’m in the bathroom. Unlike him, it’s never occurred to me to make a smiley face with my pee. Lucky for Pricasso, this idea led him to start experimenting with using his penis (and sometimes his balls and/or bum) as a paintbrush. His penile painting career has proved to be a fruitful idea (aside from the potential gangrene he’s susceptible to from all the paint-to-penis contact), and now, Pricasso makes all of his masterpieces wearing nothing but a top hat and a bow tie. And because I know you were wondering, yes, he did find penile painting erotic and get raging boners when he first started his career, but now he’s gotten past that and he has great control of his tool. OMG, I kind of need that picture of Gordon Ramsey painted by his dick. [VICE]
The reasons to visit Tokyo just keep getting more and more bountiful. I can go to the naked robot burlesque restaurant or to Love Joule, a “love and sex bar dedicated to women.” It’s described as a place women “can openly discuss masturbation.” Behind the bar, instead of liquor bottles, are rows of vibrators, lube and other female friendly toys. The bar is part of a trend going on in Japan to do away with the taboo surrounding female masturbation, sex toys and female sexuality in general. To ensure that it’s a safe space for women, mann aren’t permitted in the bar unless accompanied by a female partner.
This sounds like a great idea in theory, but I have have a number of logistical questions that need to be addressed: Keep reading »
