Want to know how important the internet has become? A new study says women would rather be online than have sex. Researchers surveyed 2,119 adults and found that 46 percent of women and 30 percent of men would choose the internet over sex for two weeks. Interestingly, as women age, they become more likely to select surfing the ‘net than taking a roll in the hay, while the number of men choosing the internet over sex lowers as they get older (possibly because if they get any action, they’re not about to turn it down). This year, I did almost all my Christmas shopping online. I’ve found jobs, apartments, friends, dates, tickets, and a vintage owl necklace with rhinestone eyes while surfing the internet. I guess it’s good to know I’m not alone in my proclivities; I, for one, am in the “internet over sex for two weeks” camp. What about you? Would you rather give up sex or the internet for two weeks?

People always talk about how champagne and strawberries are sexy, but do naked bodies and food really mix well? Our girl Lori found some interesting opinions, including this gem: “Nothing says lovin’ like a couple of chocolate chips and a bag of condoms.” Keep reading »
At first, when we found out David Duchovny had checked himself into rehab for sex addiction, we were like, “Damn, that’s kind of hot.” But that was naive. After researching sexual addiction — earlier Susannah Breslin discussed how many think the affliction is a myth — we’re feeling some serious sympathy for his wife of eleven years, actress Tea Leoni. It seems that David’s not just acting sex-crazed on his Showtime series. But how can sex, a natural bodily function, become a disease making headlines? The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity has defined sexual addiction as “engaging in persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite increasing negative consequences to self and others.” Just like drugs and alcohol, some people feel they’re abusing sex and themselves to get a high. But as Breslin points out, even doctors can’t decide if sexual addiction is a real condition or merely a symptom of a larger problem that goes beyond sex. Either way, it’s reeking havoc and wrecking homes. So how can you tell if your man is a slave to his wee man? Seven signs, after the jump…

The penis. So well-known, yet so enigmatic. For many women, the human penis remains one of life’s eternal mysteries. When we here at The Frisky Labs aren’t sitting around talking about our vaginas, we sit around talking about men’s penises. How do they work? Why do they look like that? What is the deal? We may not have answers, but we do have a lot of questions. In the spirit of better understanding this elusive member of the male anatomy, we bring you some of the most notorious phalluses in human history.

My birth control is ruining my figure. It’s not so much the extra pounds the Pill has added to my frame — seven pounds, if we’re counting — it’s the extra cleavage that I can’t stand. I know most women would kill for overflowing bra cups. If you’d talked to me twenty years ago, when I was stuffing my bra with gym socks and then admiring my womanly profile in the mirror, I’d have balked at the idea big boobs would be anything other than a gift from God. But that was before my breasts inexplicably grew three cup sizes during my sophomore year of high school, and I became a school-wide, overnight sensation the day I demonstrated my jump-roping skills in gym class. Could there have been anyone more clueless and insensitive to the woes of teenage girlhood than a middle-aged, male gym teacher? Keep reading »
To any guys reading this post — this is indeed a conversation most women have in their lifetime with their friends. We are fascinated by that thing dangling between your legs. What it feels like there, how pants fit comfortably, what it’s like when you’re standing at a urinal and are tempted to glance at the dude next to you. And yes, what it feels like to have sex with one of us. So with that in mind, I polled some of the ladies I know to find out what exactly they would do if they had a manhood for a moment, a schlong for a spell, a willie for a week, a d–k for a day — above is the convo that Sexpert Lindsay and I had over IM, and the rest are after the jump. But one thing I’m wondering of you — do guys ever theorize about what they would do if they had a vagina? 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…
Dildos and vibrators (a dildo with a battery operated massage element) are made for faux-penis fun! Reportedly 44% of women have toyed around with one. Surprisingly enough, 78% of those women with a B.O.B. (Battery Operated Boyfriend) are in a relationship. In fact, these adult playthings are known to help women orgasm with their sexual partners. Here’s how to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck when buying yourself or that special someone the gift that keeps on giving… Keep reading »
People are strange when it comes to condoms. Most people don’t like them much, but they continue to use them because they do their job. But if you’re a woman and you want to enjoy sex, you might want to use condoms and take birth control. According to data from The Kinsey Institute, women who use both hormonal contraception and condoms report higher overall sexual satisfaction. Now, “sexual satisfaction” doesn’t been “sexual enjoyment.” Satisfaction goes beyond the immediate act and includes things like sexual self-esteem and relationship satisfaction. So, while this study seems earth-shattering — Use condoms and hormonal contraceptives and enjoy sex more! — it’s probably not. Keep reading »
Anal sex is on the rise amongst teenagers. Not so coincidentally, so are STDs, specifically HIV/AIDS, among 13-29 year-olds. According to ABC News, teens just don’t find sex and its kinks as taboo as previous generations — which we suppose is sort of good news. It’s important for teenagers to have a healthy relationship with their sexuality and to not feel shame about their urges. But the bad news is, with a lack of sexual education, they’re being stupid about how they do it. Since teens aren’t worried about pregnancy when they’re going through the back door, they often don’t use condoms. There are life-changing risks involved, especially with anal sex, where the walls of the rectum tear easily — just ask our own Dr. V. So, as we tackle sexual taboos as a society, we have to be responsible enough to teach the next generation what we know. Keep reading »
We don’t know anyone who uses female condoms, and unlike the ones made for men, you don’t often see commercials advertising their benefits. However, this may soon change. A new, potentially less-expensive version of the female condom will be considered by a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel this week. The panel of health experts will weigh in on whether the FC2 Female Condom adequately prevents pregnancy, HIV, and other STDs. While the new condom is similar to the one on the market right now, it’s made from a new synthetic rubber material called nitrile, as opposed to polyurethane.
Male condoms generally cost consumers between 50 cents and $2 a piece, while female condoms cost between $2.80 and $4 each. If the cheaper female version is approved, will you use it? Tell us in the comments… [Reuters] Keep reading »
