For all the men out there who think women play mind games when it comes to sex — first they’re into you, and the next second they’re not — consider this: It might not be them. Yes, George Costanza, if it’s anybody, it might just be you. If you’ve had a good date, are into a decent makeout session and all of a sudden your girl remembers that she has “an early start” and heads home, you may have inadvertently ruined the mood. But what was it that went wrong exactly? Read more on AskMen…
On any typical day, sex toy sales are divided pretty equally between men and women buyers. But not today, my friends… today is different.
With the 2014 FIFA World Cup beginning tomorrow in Brazil, new research conducted by sex toy brand LELO has determined that we can expect men to buy four out of every five sex toys sold globally in the days leading up to kick-off (that’s today, you guys!). The good news? Men are buying these toys for their partners. Cha-ching! Keep reading »
Farrah Abraham excels at being a celebrity, if our working definition is someone who finds a way to keep themselves in the news no matter what. The former ”Teen Mom” star, singer, and tomato sauce social messenger has now parlayed her much-hyped Vivid sex tapes with porn It Boy James Deen, “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom” and “Farrah 2: Backdoor and More,” into an erotic novel trilogy based around them. The first book, In The Making (Celebrity Sex Tape), which will be published July 1st, comes with a disclaimer at the front of the first book by publisher Ellora’s Cave CEO Patty Marks stating that it “has been carefully written, edited and proofread to ensure that the book has not revealed any actual occurrences or business practices that have not already been publicly revealed or acknowledged.” Perhaps this was a nod to the legal warnings Vivid has supposedly sent her; in the book, the porn company is called HALE’O and is owned by Schmite Hale (who has the same initials as Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch).

In fairness, I will pretty much try anything besides hanging out with medium-to-large birds and bungee jumping, but FORIA cannabis lube is exactly the kind of thing I am dying to try. I love cannabis! I love lube! I love the idea of my vagina getting high! Tell me more! According to Cosmo, the (bong water-based?) lube “contains medical marijuana that is blended with MCT or coconut oil,” while Nerve.com says that the response to the product will vary from woman to woman, likely depending on what her typical response to marijuana is in general. But creator Mathew Gerson explains the sensations thusly:
“Women report a sense of embodiment, a sense of dropping into a more full relationship to sexual sensations, and sensations around the body. As you can imagine, as that builds up to orgasm, if orgasm is a part of your experience, then that can lead to intensification and a more full body experience.”

From the time I learned what fingering was at age 11, it sounded not that great to me, and that didn’t really change for about 15 years.
Even the idea of fingering (or “fingerbanging,” yikes) sounded bad. It almost didn’t occur to me that fingering would be something I would actually want. I’d even tried it myself but it was just left me bored and with a cramp in my hand. Certainly it did not stand up to the newly discovered pleasures of the shower head. But it was still something I expected to happen to me at some point, a natural progression like moonrise following sunset or whatever. Keep reading »
Animal researcher Margaret Howe Lovatt is the focus of an upcoming BBC Four documentary called “The Girl Who Talked To Dolphins,” but the subtitle of this film could easily be “…And Then They Did Some Other Stuff.” See, back in the 1960s, Lovatt studied dolphins near the U.S. Virgin Islands, and one day she met a cute fella named Peter. Yes, Peter. As she puts it in the doc:
In the beginning when he would get rambunctious and had this need, I would put him on the elevator and say, “You go play with the girls for a day”…I was just easier to incorporate [dolphin handjobs] and let it happen. It was very precious. It was very gentle…Again it was sexual on his part, it was not sexual on mine. Sensuous perhaps. It would just become part of what was going on, like an itch. Just get rid of that. Scratch it and we’ll be done. Move on. And that’s really all it was. I was there to get to know Peter. That was part of Peter.
Well. Okay then. “The Girl Who Talked To Dolphins” debuts on BBC Four in the UK on June 17. Sounds like a sensuous good time. [NY Daily News]
Dr. Arthur K. Zilberstein, a 47-year-old Seattle anesthesiologist, spent so much time sexting that he pretty much forgot to do his job. His medical license was suspended when authorities found out about his ”preoccupation with sexual matters” and the “moral turpitude” he displayed in the workplace. From the looks of it, this guy sexted in the middle of surgery while he was supposed to be putting all his concentration into monitoring his patient’s wellbeing. How, exactly, does one get turned on when a person’s body is cut open on the operating table a few feet away!? Keep reading »
One of the few criticisms of Game of Thrones is that it relies too much on gratuitous sex scenes. But some fans look at the franchise and decide that there isn’t nearly enough inappropriate boning. These special people write fan fiction that will make it impossible to ever read the books or watch the show again without feeling dirty in a way that can never be cleansed. Read more on Cracked…
I would naively assume that the main reason a person would have sex would be simply because they wanted to. As it turns out, there are a whole slew of complicated reasons why people have sex.
The University of Texas conducted a study to find out exactly what motivates people to get busy and the results were much more nuanced than I’d have thought. Researchers first asked over 400 survey participants to reveal reasons people have sex; then, they asked about 1,500 undergraduate students about their experiences and attitudes. What they found was over 237 reasons for having sex. Keep reading »
I never would have guessed that combing through stock photography would be such an exciting and enlightening part of my job, but everyday I encounter at least one photograph that teaches me something new about life, love and even my own body. Oh yeah, stock photography is full of wisdom about the vagina — crazy shit your gynecologist probably never told you. For example… [Photos: Shutterstock]
