Let’s talk about your taste in pornography. Is it highbrow enough? Pinkies up, chaps!
Philosopher and How Proust Can Change Your Life author Alain de Botton is deeply concerned about this issue. So he plans to take one for the team and meet with “leaders in porn and the arts,” according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper, “to bring about a better kind of pornography.”
I didn’t realize there could be better and worse pornography, so long as it’s all legal, consensual and no one is wearing frosted lipstick. But the esteemed philosopher disagrees. Keep reading »
Even if you’re a masturbation pro, there are still ways to spruce up your technique. Like having sex, there are many ways to masturbate and adding new things to your usual menu of choices is a great way to keep things exciting. Here are some tips, in Honor of National Masturbation Month:
1. Tool. Some women prefer their hands, others their collection of vibrators, and, as a few of my friends will attest to, a shower head with appropriate pressure can also be a great clit pleaser.

In his new project “Grand Old Party,” NYU graduate student Matthew Epler found a sexier way to visualize the Republican presidential candidates. Using Gallup’s website for data, he determined the width of each toy by approval rating while the height was determined by the length of each campaign. But these aren’t just imaginings. Epler took it a step further and made replicas of the toys out of black silicone. They are available for purchase on his website, provided that you would want to masturbate with them … even ironically. You can see his full line of Republican dildos here including Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry, who come in butt plugs. Um. Awesome. [The Daily Beast]
