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 an alarming phone call. My most recent ex-boyfriend went to get tested like a sensible young man and I’m so proud of him — but I’m sorry he had to call me with his results. While it wasn’t good news, I’m truly grateful he talked to me about it openly. Sex is dirty, and sometimes you can’t totally clean up the mess, but you can always take measures to stop it from spreading! I know my ex was not so thrilled to have to call me to tell me to get tested too, however, it made me realize why I was with him in the first place. He’s respectable and responsible for divulging what he knows with me, for better or for worse. Although it can be a tearful inspiration, I’d like to dedicate this installment of Dr. V to all the men and women, like my ex-boyfriend out there, who are brave enough to pick up the phone and show someone they still care by telling them the truth about their health and the risks they shared. According to the CDC, who just this week reported 19 million cases of STDs in 2007, there are a lot of people who need to make a similar confession. So, here’s how you do it, as pain-free as possible.

When we heard our friends at AskMen.com wrote a book on how to get women from the bar to the bedroom, we were convinced the “tips” were going to be wild ways to get a lady drunk. However, we found “The 11 Rules For Picking Up And Pleasuring Women” to be, well, kind of sweet. From “Express Yourself” to “Keep Her Satisfied,” the tips seemed more focused on connecting and mutual satisfaction than just an ego-fueled crotch conquest. Go figure! They should consider changing their name to AskGentlemen.com. Anyway, while those goals are inspirationally high falutin’, here are some quick, tangible, girl-approved ways a man can up his chances of wooing us from the bar to the bedroom.

Durex’s new ad, featuring condom balloon animals doing it in various positions, is so amazing and funny, it could do a lot for the rubbers’ public image. After all, more than one guy (and girl) has complained to us about hating them, despite knowing they’re necessary in order to prevent pregnancy and the spread of STDs. After the jump, we tracked down even more hilarious outtakes from the condom balloon animal video shoot — those horny humpers sure get outta hand. Keep reading »
A new report released this week suggests that high levels of estrogen, known as estradiol, may make some of us act a bit slutty. Apparently, the hormone not only makes us feel pretty, it makes us horny, as well — and not just for the one we’re with. “Women with higher estradiol reported a greater likelihood of flirting, kissing and having a serious affair with someone other than their primary partner and were marginally more likely to date another man,” reported researcher Dr. Kristina Durante of The University of Texas at Austin. Researchers discovered that women with high-estradiol were considered significantly hotter by themselves, as well as others. High-estradiol is also the hormone that makes women especially fertile, so researchers report: “Results provide support for the relationship between physical beauty and fertility and suggest that women high in reproductive health engage in opportunistic serial monogamy — being open to affairs and moving on to a new relationship if a higher-quality mate becomes available.” It’s interesting, though, that the study only tested 52 women, all between the ages of 17 and 30, all undergrads, and all in Texas. That hardly seems like a fair representation of fertile woman, if you ask me. I mean, everyone knows Texan undergrads are loose. Oh, I kid, people. I kid. [Yahoo] Keep reading »
This month, Playboy pronounced the most important people in sex. Their number includes Playboy CEO Hugh Hefner, “Sex and the City” creator Candace Bushnell, and Jenna Jameson. Daniel Radosh makes the case that sex is one of the most important cultural influencers of the modern age. “Reading the Playboy list, what quickly jumps out is that sex is as much a cultural force as a private act,” Radosh writes. Talking to list creator Chip Rowe, Radosh finds out which erotic icons didn’t make the cut, Bettie Page, Larry Flynt, and Dan Savage among them. Where the list is most remiss, Radosh ventures, is in featuring not one African-American on it. Where’s LL Cool J? Radosh wonders, seeing as “hip hop’s sexual (and frequently sexist) swagger has become the erotic lingua franca of young Americans of all races.” Of course, today the computer tops the list of the 21st century’s leading erotic pioneers, leaving the once cutting-edge Playboy on the locker room floor.

After a few days — or even a few minutes — at the Adult Entertainment Expo, your brain begins to process things differently than it did previously. Breasts covered by clothing seem unusual, almost confusing. Loud moans emanate from adult movies on view at various booths and orgasm contests at others. Since this was my third year, I’m relatively unshockable. Which means that I was able to look past dildos as thick as forearms, girls grinding each other, and a bald man in a black suit who claimed to have equipment that dwarfed John Holmes to determine the best of what the world’s biggest sex convention had to offer.

In “I’m Fat, So?!” last week, I totally dissed The Sun’s ridiculously stupid “Big Girl’s Guide To Sex.” It was full of backwards tips about how to look thin, as if skinny always equals attractive.

Here are my very sexy tips on how to show your man that you like your body no matter your size, so he can return the favor.

Nothing says, “Hey, let’s write a sex story,” like a slow economy. The New York Times weighs in with a report on adult shops that indicates sex toy sales are on the rise. Adult toy retailers say vibrator sales are up as much as 50 percent. Why? According to Babeland founder Claire Cavanah, “People are looking for stress relief and a little connection.” Over at the Huffington Post, Mike Alvear, host of HBO’s “The Sex Inspectors,” predicts 2009 sex trends: 1) more sex, 2) more porn, 3) cheaper sex, 4) more high-tech sex, and 5) more online sex. And having listed the world’s most phallic monuments, Listicles lists the world’s most yonic monuments, from the womb-like to the architecturally vaginal.
