It’s easy to say that pornography is empowering for women, or that it degrades them. Oversimplifying, certainly, but easy.
The truth is it’s much more complicated than that.
I was 19 when I realized I could go to college without the debt that my friends were already beginning to complain about. I could take care of myself. It was when I held in my hand $100 for one hour of nude modeling, something I never even realized a chubby girl could make money doing. I was juggling three jobs that paid me only twice that amount per 40-hour week doing physically stressful work for minimum wage.
At the time, it was simple mathematics. Keep reading »
South African performance artist Steven Cohen is currently on trial in Paris for a piece of he performed last year in front of the Eiffel Tower. Performance art as a medium is known for being edgy and pushing boundaries, but French authorities think Cohen took it a little too far when, dressed in a corset, platform shoes, and feather headdress, he put a live rooster on a makeshift leash and attached it to his penis. Yes, he walked a cock with his cock. Keep reading »
Women have been faking orgasms since the beginning of time, the reasoning usually being that it’s just easier to pretend you’ve come when you know a real one is not going to happen. It gives the dude you’re getting down with unspoken permission to finish up himself, without having to say, mid-coitus, “Hey, you know, an orgasm just isn’t in the cards for me today, but you should go ahead and have yours!” (Generally, I encourage people to not mislead their sexual partners and would like to see women be more open about what gets them off so they don’t feel inclined to fake — however, there are just some sexual relationships you don’t want to go that deep with. Whatever. Do you, girl.) But one thing I hadn’t considered, even as an occasional faker myself, is that women might actually get off, in some way, by faking it. Well, a recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Archives found that some women fake orgasms for their own pleasure, and upon thinking about it, I realized that I totally relate.

For a lot of American women, the thought of the uncircumcised penis is repulsive. (Sorry, guys!) It’s not that we’re against a penis that rocks a turtleneck, but it’s just something to which we’re not accustomed. You can’t be mad at us if we recoil in fear and confusion when face-to-face with an uncut member! It’s not our fault we’re American! Read what several experienced women had to say about uncircumcised penises on Your Tango…
Because having sex in your car is awkward, uncomfortable and illegal if you get caught by authorities, someone went ahead and created “a modern dating solution for safe sexual adventuring.”
Enter the Hook-Up Truck. It’s just like it sounds — a for-rent, box truck complete with temperature control, birth control and camera, if you’re into that sort of thing. (And seat belts that double as restraining devices, I hope?) Designated driver not included. It appears to be more of a park and fuck situation. Keep reading »
As much as we love sex, and are usually down to have it pretty much whenever, there are times when intercourse simply isn’t on the menu, for many reasons ranging from menstrual cramps to cold weather. But don’t ever think you need not forgo intimacy just because sex isn’t happening! Cracking each other’s toes can be incredibly intimate, not to mention satisfying as hell. Here are some other pleasurable ways to bond as a couple without putting P in V. Keep reading »

This Thursday, Christopher Meloni returns to television as the titular character in the half-hour Fox comedy “Surviving Jack.” And we couldn’t be happier. Why? Residual checks. But also, Thursday marks the culmination of a marathon that may not have gone past the starting line without Chris Meloni leading the pack.
He was everyone’s first choice for the role, hands down: an actor with a rare combination of likeability—the holy grail of casting—and shit-inducing scariness. The billboards read, in bold red block letters: “Putting the ‘F’ back in Fatherhood.” One need only recall a couple of shows in Chris’s past body of work to know he could put the “F” in just about anything. The guy thrived for several years of maximum-security lockup as sociopathic inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s prison drama “OZ,” and spent 12 seasons on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU”(12 seasons!) cleaning scum off the streets of New York as Detective Elliot Stabler.
With a resume like that, an actor will surely garner a group of fans. But Meloni comes with a special army of devotees—self-proclaimed “Melonians”—whose appreciation for the star goes far beyond his acting chops.
We’re of course talking about his man parts. Keep reading »
