From what could very well be pulled from the April Fool’s Day file comes word that sex may treat hay fever better than decongestants do — for guys at least. Sina Zarrintan, a neurologist from the Tabriz Medical University in Iran, is proposing that a “well-timed ejaculation,” either from masturbation or sex with a partner, can soothe “swollen nasal blood vessels, freeing the airway for normal breathing.” Sounds sexy, no? Apparently, the nose and the genitals are both connected to the same part of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls certain reflexes. I’m not sure about you, but if I guy used his allergies as an excuse to screw, I’m not so sure my sympathetic reflex would be to jump on that.
Zarrintan hasn’t yet performed clinical trials to test the hypothesis, but I’m pretty sure he won’t have trouble finding volunteers. [via New Scientist] Keep reading »

If you have/have had an STD and would be willing to tell us about it, please email email@example.com. We’re more than happy to keep your identity anonymous. Keep reading »
Finally, two women have found a way to prove video games are for virgins. After their bosses thought their idea was too risqué, Heather Kelley and Erin Robinson struck out on their own and developed “Our First Times,” a multi-level video game where the player prepares for their first night of fornication. From shaving your legs to avoiding garlic at dinner, the game also isn’t afraid to go there and get players to use condoms. The fantasy scenario seduced every nerd at the Game Design Challenge in San Fran! While it took top honors, we’re still wondering if the players all have to be bottoms? [via Lemondrop] Keep reading »
The ladies over at Lemondrop are talking about a 30-Day No Casual Sex Challenge. Suggested by sex and relationships writer Samantha Brett at The Sydney Morning Herald, this is a month of no casual sex that might help you distinguish whether any guy is worth your time when you’re just starting to get to know each other. With hormones flying, it’s easy to overlook early problems in a relationship until the bedroom passion starts to wane a few months down the line. But is forgoing casual sex for 30 days even that much of a challenge? I think not, especially if you don’t meet any men during that time period. Amelia tried not to do anything physical for six months, and she had no problem getting past the 30-day mark. In fact, she made it all the way to 16 weeks, so a month ain’t no thang. After the jump 30 ways to spend your time that don’t involve intercourse, dry humping, or getting yourself off. 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…
This week, I got a letter from a lady looking for tips on how to toss her man’s salad aka analingus or rimming. Yes, I know, it’s always lunchtime somewhere. Anyway, no matter what you call it there’s one way to do it. So, I’m going to help her perfect her tushie-tonguing technique. As for the rest of you, keep those letters coming! You know I love to read your smut too! To send me a question or suggest a topic for a future “Doin’ It With Dr. V,” email me! Now, here’s her letter… Keep reading »
Painter Justine Lai’s series of erotic oil paintings depicting the artist banging it out with U.S. Presidents massage two nerdy pleasure centers: history and sex. Are you reading this, History Channel? Less Nazis, more Presidential pegging please! The artist’s intent is to break down the mythological idea of the President, expose their inherent humanity and vulnerability, and to comment on the relationship between sex and politics. Since, after all, power is the ultimate aphrodisiac. The work could easily have been an adolescent lark, a snarky art nerd having some frat fun with former Commanders-in-Chief. Instead the paintings transcend this, and end up being rude, gentle, and compelling. Maybe even sexy? Also, you’d never think Abraham Lincoln would close his eyes while getting a knobber.

Thanks to Amy Benfer at Broadsheet for pointing out this article in the new issue of Self, called “Single, Pregnant and Panicked,” about the trend of twentysomething women having unplanned pregnancies. As the feature points out, we’ve all seen this trend in Hollywood — Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, and Ashlee Simpson have all had babies in the last few years — but some of us, especially given the statistics, have probably seen it in our personal lives or experienced unplanned pregnancy ourselves. Despite editing this site, the statistics shocked me. About half of American women will have an accidental pregnancy before the age of 45. That’s kind of a scary thought, considering my addiction to high-fructose corn syrup (um, and red wine).

While the recession has screwed everyone, it’s really sticking it to a Romanian virgin. Grace Yataco, a Peruvian model, was offered 1.5 million for the chance to pluck her lady flower. Chaste Italian “Big Brother” star Rafaella Fico was offered 1.8 million dollars to be a whore on more than reality television. And here in the U.S., college student Natalie Dylan has been hocking her hymen to the highest bidder — so far, she’s got a $3.8 million dollar offer on the table. But for some reason, 18-year-old Alina Percea, from Romania, has only been offered a mere $7,000 in exchange for a whole weekend’s worth of sex. The beautiful, busty brunette is trying to raise enough money to go to college. But next to million dollar offers pouring in from pervs in other countries, it begs the question, what’s she doing wrong? Keep reading »
