Since the sexual revolution, it’s been hard for us modern gals to remember that our below the belt business is also for baby-making. STD’s and UTI’s are always a risk, but sadly, these party favors from sexual favors have been linked to birth defects. Just when you thought they were bad enough to handle on your own, a new study has found they quadruple your baby’s chances of being born with a birth defect known as gastroschisis. While the name of the disorder is hard to pronounce, the complications are convoluted too — gastrochisis causes the baby’s intestines and other organs to be born outside the abdomen. States like Utah have experienced a tenfold increase in cases over the past 30 years and they blame it on the rise of STD and UTI infections. Keep reading »
Vitamin E is supposedly known as “the sexuality vitamin” and peanut and peanut products are “recommended by at least three leading sexologists for a restorative diet,” according to the website AllAboutStuff.com, which my friend Josh directed me to because peanut butter is my favorite food. We’re not sure who these sexologists are, but a dollop of delicious peanut butter never hurt anyone. For a better sex life, make sure you make time for peanut butter jelly time — in the bedroom or elsewhere. [AllAboutStuff.com] Keep reading »
All those studies that say sex burns calories thereby making you lose weight may be hooey. A study published this month in Medical Hypotheses suggests that blood levels of the hormone prolactin, which stimulates milk production and fatherly love, rise during sex, especially when there’s an orgasm. In several species, increased levels of prolactin have been linked to weight gain, so if things have been going well in the bedroom lately, it’s quite alright if you’ve been on a couple pounds. That’s called “happy weight.” [NewScientist.com] Keep reading »
The mythic G-spot seems even too mysterious for an episode of the X Files to uncover it. Where is it? What is it? And how do you work the darn thing?! After reading Divine Caroline, a few things became clear:
- The G-Spot is actually the Skene Gland- a thick lining on the front side of the vag. While baby boys grow a prostate, the same structure can also develop in some women and it becomes the infamous G-spot.
- Female ejaculate is made up of the same ingredients that sperms get shipped off in.
- Only 10% of women can ejaculate.

Marcus Day, the adviser to the Association of Caribbean Heads of Corrections and Prison Services, is recommending prisons in the Caribbean implement condom distribution programs (despite concerns from the religious community that this will promote sex between men). A slightly more innovative course of action he’s suggesting is conjugal visits for married prisoners. Marcus said this would greatly reduce the desire for prisoners to have sex with other prisoners. Now, this might work, so long as the prisoners aren’t going at it with each other while their wives aren’t around, and then going at it with their wives, possibly spreading the virus even more.

Thinking about going on a sexpedition? Well, Stockholm, Sweden, was just voted the city in the world with the most beautiful women by Traveler’s Digest. So consider yourself warned of the competition! The cuties in Copenhagen, Denmark came in a close second, and Buenos Aires, Argentina in third. Although, the entire survey seems skewed since Los Angeles came in fifth. How can four cities beat a town filled with the likes of Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson and Angelina Jolie?! Oh well, who cares. Let’s focus on what’s really important: where o’ where are the finest looking gentlemen? Inquiring minds want to know! [The Local] Keep reading »
American Apparel, the t-shirt and clothing company well-known for its, um, amorous owner Dov Charney and its controversial advertisements (like the one at left), is getting into the pleasure business — that is, they’re officially selling the Hitachi Magic Wand (a back massager turned, uh, other massager), online and at stores nationwide. Will the Rabbit be available at The Gap next?! [AmericanApparel.net] Keep reading »
“Can a woman get cervical cancer if a smoker routinely goes down on her?” — Paranoid About My Puffer, Houston, TX
There hasn’t been any real medical research to support this claim, but you’re not totally crazy. If I had to take a guess, I’d say having a smoker go down on you is like putting Equal in your coffee. It’s not awesome for you, but if you don’t eat eight bathtubs full of it a day you’ll be fine.

I have never had a bikini wax. Something about it scares me. The only people I allow near my vagina is the boyfriend and my gyno and unless one of them decides on a second career, I probably will never have one. Or so I have always thought. Lately I have been considering giving the ol’ wax a try, if I can muster up the patience and itch-resistance to grow out what hair my pathetic attempts at shaving have removed. But before I do so, I am curious: how are your pubes maintained? Keep reading »
An Italian couple totally got busted making love in the confessional in a cathedral. The two were detained by police when they disturbed things during morning Mass, but they met with the local bishop to ask for forgiveness and he did, and celebrated a “Mass of reparation” to make up for the sacrilege. And so we ask, where is the craziest place you’ve ever hooked up? [Reuters]
