In a new ad for Lion’s Den Adult Superstore, the sex toy company has created a parody of the “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie to market their toys in a Christmas commercial called “Fifty Shades Of Santa.” To say that I’m not totally weirded out by it would be a lie. Pardon my pun, but Santa pulls a bunch of goodies out of his sack, including a cock ring, butt plug, handcuffs, a whip and other seXXXy gifts, all while maintaining this creepy grin on his face. Check out the spot and tell me I’m not the only one who now sees Santa in a TOTALLY different light. I no longer want him stuffing my stocking this year. [Happy Place]
Weaving in general is my obsession and in addition to spending most of my free time at the loom, I also search Instagram for other weavers in hopes of finding inspiration and new techniques. There’s plenty of great work, but a lot of it is … the same. Lots of geometric, vaguely Southwestern patterns, or really organic, free-formed designs. I count myself among those weavers doing similar work, by the way, but I’m getting closer to finding my own signature style and I’m super inspired by those who’ve carved out a unique niche for themselves.
No one exemplifies that more than Erin M. Riley, a Brooklyn-based weaver who transforms photographs, in particular the kind of “sexy” selfies that have become ever-present on the Internet, into intricate and and extremely beautiful woven textiles. “I am drawn to the images taken for private exchanges that become littered on the internet,” she has said of her work. “I am using my own images that I have sent to lovers as well as the objects that I have formed psychological attachments to, objects that have impacted people’s lives, displays of arrests, deaths, addictions.” The work is provocative, especially since it both defies (subject matter) and exemplifies (technique) the art form’s traditions.

“Friends with benefits” might be one of the most complicated relationships you could possibly get yourself into. This kind of relationship typically starts off really fun and convenient (a best friend who you can make out with? SCORE!) but almost always, someone ends up getting feelings which results in ruining the friendship all together. Buzz kill.
But FWB doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. In fact, it could actually work if you follow these 8 rules. Read more on College Candy…
Have you ever wondered what racial representation looks like in porn versus the United States population? Well, I have.
I get tired of conventional porn sometimes, and I want to see porn with women especially, but people in general, who aren’t going “ooohnnnn ooohhhhhnnn ohhhhhnnn” like seals throughout the movie, or who aren’t skinny, or who aren’t young, or who aren’t white, or who aren’t conventional-looking, or who are engaging in sex acts that they really, really, really love of their own accord rather than being just sort of down to do because it’s their job. That’s why I love Beautiful Agony (just assume that none of the links in this post are safe for work) — it’s all orgasms, it’s all very understated, it’s a pure celebration of pleasure, and lots of different kinds of people are represented. It’s also why I love the Art-Porn Tumblr: there’s at least some diversity, there’s a lot of kink — real kink — and many of the photographers and directors portray sex in a way that doesn’t feel so … I don’t know. Gratuitous. There’s nothing wrong with gratuitous, conventional porn, of course, I just get tired of it. It’s made for a male audience, and I’m not male. I want to see something different.

Holy moley, were there a lot of boob stories in 2014! You’d think that between #BreakTheInternet and “Anaconda,” this year would go to butts, but you’d be wrong. We learned a lot about Dolly Parton’s boobs, Free the Nipple became part of the feminist movement, and Jasmine Tridevil beguiled us all. Click through to see the best of this year’s boob news!
