In an upcoming issue of Contraception, Rachel K. Jones of the Guttmacher Institute makes the case that sex educators should start teaching the withdrawal method as a form of birth control. Jones argues that when practiced properly, the withdrawal method is quite effective at preventing pregnancy, and only four percent of those who use it “perfectly” will get pregnant in the next year. The method, like birth control pills, however, has no proven effect when it comes to preventing the transmission of STDs, although researchers are hoping to study that, too.

“I play all the roles on set. In a film I made a long time ago, I even performed cunnilingus on an actress to show the actor how to do it.”
– Pedro Almodovar at the Cannes Film Festival. Clearly, he’s a method director.

Check out this clip from the “Cosby Show” porn spoof, “Not The Cosby Show XXX.” Don’t worry, it’s safe for work. The guy who plays “Cliff F**kstable” does a dead on impression of Bill Cosby! No word yet on how he performs during the film’s sex scenes, but I hope he wins an AVN Award for his impersonation. Keep reading »
We should’ve known it was coming. In the same vein as “Nailin’ Paylin,” a porn spoof based on Nadya Suleman, the woman who birthed octuplets now known as “OctoMom,” is about to hit an adult video store near you. Naturally, the title came easily. “CoctoMom” will spoof the baby-obsessed mom’s need for sperm donors. I, for one, am frightened.
Likewise, the “Twilight” franchise is getting its own XXX movie in the form of “Twilight of Virginity,” which, I guess, is about vampires sucking blood and popping cherries. Which of these two do you think will be the most successful? [Examiner] 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 lead 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. And please, if you have a question, email me. You know I love to read your smut too! Now, let’s get this party started.
This week, I got a letter from a lady who’s feeling self-conscious about the scent of a woman. She wrote:
“I just started dating this guy and he’s cool, and smart, and dead sexy. But he told me that my vajayjay smells. Is that a diss or what?! I mean, he was drunk and he hasn’t dumped me, but he never goes down on me. I’ve tried douching, but he’s still not going down on me. And now I’m too nervous to say anything about it. What should I do?”

Public discussion of sex is taboo in China, where even kissing your significant other in public is frowned upon. But the builders of an adult theme park are trying to change all that. Love Land will be China’s first sexually explicit theme park when it opens in October in the southwestern metropolis of Chongqing. But with the increase of swing clubs, burlesque shows, and easy-access to online porn, what exactly does an adult theme park have to offer? Not much. Guests will be greeted by a signboard bearing the park’s name straddled between a giant pair of women’s legs topped by a cheesy red thong. There are giant genitalia sculptures and butt sinks for hand washing. Love Land will feature exhibitions about sexual history and proper condom use, and it will host sex technique workshops. The park will help visitors “enjoy a more harmonious sex life,” according to Lu Xiaoqing, Love Land’s manager. “We are building the park for the good of the public,” he said. “Sex is a taboo subject in China but people really need to have more access to information about it.” China seems to be embarking on a sexual revolution. The Chinese government recently launched a sex education campaign with the goal to get people to seek STD and infertility treatment. However, Love Land sounds pretty boring for people who have been allowed to discuss sex in the open. It probably won’t be the tourist destination for foreigners seeking a bit of debauchery. For that, they’d have to head to Jamaica’s Hedonism resort. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Comedy Central, the network which, thanks to “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” has hijacked the news and made it relevant, entertaining, and funny, has greenlighted a TV version of the cult online series “Midwest Teen Sex Show.” Despite its title, the show is hardly hardcore and offers valuable sex education information for teens and young adults via funny sketches about birth control, oral sex, porn, and STDs. It may seem odd that a comedy network is taking up the task of educating teens about sex, but many states do not offer comprehensive sex education. The network has been successful with bringing the news to teens and young adults, so I don’t have a doubt that their joint effort with the “Midwest Teen Sex Show” will rock, too. Check out an online episode! [EW.com] Keep reading »
Brett and Kate McKay are the husband/wife team behind the Art of Manliness, which seeks to help men “be better husbands, better fathers, and better men.” Brett was turned off by traditional men’s magazines like Men’s Health because they were filled with articles about sex and six-pack abs. “Was this all there was to being a man?” he asks.
It should come as no surprise that Brett has a big problem with porn. After all, it’s filled with men with six-pack abs having sex. In “The Problem with Porn,” he warns men that porn “saps your manliness” and lists five reasons why. Our Mind of Man has shared his perspective on guys and porn, and when I IM’d him about the article, he wrote back, “Porn is sexy. Too much porn is bad. Wine is yummy. Too much is bad.” But if porn saps a guy’s manliness, what does it do to women? Keep reading »
