Starring In “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” Is Bringing Up All Sorts Of “Homophobic Insecurities” For Neil Patrick Harris

Starring-In-'Hedwig-And-The-Angry-Inch'-Is-Bringing-Up-All-Sorts-Of-'Homophobic-Insecurities'-For-Neil-Patrick-Harris

“Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”

Neil Patrick Harris talks about starring in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway and much, much more in this Out Magazine cover interview. You can always count on NPH to say interesting and provocative things, whether it be that drinking pineapple juice makes him “feel tropical” and makes his “semen taste delicious,” or that playing a character who dresses in drag is triggering his internalized homophobia. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is one of my all-time favorite plays, and when it ran off-Broadway the first time, I saw it 11 times because it was just so gripping and multi-dimensional for a one-man musical. I agree with creator James Cameron Mitchell, NPH is the ideal person to play the role. I can’t wait to see it. [Out]

Coming Soon To Your TV: Couples Having Sex In A Box

Leave it to the Brits to come up with the most out-of-the-box (well, actually, in-the-box) concept for a reality TV show. And leave it to the Americans to steal the idea. WE  has announced that it will produce its own version of the British show, “Sex Box.” It’s just what it sounds like. Couples who are having relationship issues go inside a soundproof box, have sex and discuss it immediately after with a panel of sexperts (including the great Dan Savage). Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Made A Sex Spreadsheet — Just Wait ‘Til You See Who’s On It

Lindsay-Lohan-Made-A-Sex-Spreadsheet----Just-Wait-'Til-You-See-Who's-On-It

According to the latest issue of In Touch, one drunken eve at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Lindsay Lohan made a list of all 36 of her famous, sexual conquests to impress her friends. Yes, because making a list of all the famous people you’ve fucked is the best way to impress people. An anonymous source who claims to have watched Lilo pen the sex spreadsheet on January 30, 2013 said,”It was her personal conquest list. She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside.”  Keep reading »

10 Things We Love About Chubs

10 Things We Love About Chubs

As much as we appreciate the obvious benefits and abilities of a rock hard cock, there’s something about a chub — a soft, malleable, half-erect penis — that makes it our second favorite penis form. Is it the shape? The texture? The fact that it hasn’t committed to anything yet?  The appeal of being able to decide if you want to have sex with it or play a game with it? Or maybe it’s how open and accepting it is, like a baby animal innocently exploring the world for the first time? All of the above, really. One thing’s for sure: in the grand hierarchy of penile potential, we don’t think chubs get nearly enough credit. It’s time to change that. Oh chubs, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…  Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Melissa Gira Grant, Author Of Playing The Whore: The Work Of Sex Work

Melissa Gira Grant Playing The Whore

If you’ve done any reading on the Internet about the business of sex work, chances are you’ve come across Melissa Gira Grant. She’s written about sex, politics, labor and tech everywhere from the UK’s Guardian to The Atlantic  to Jezebel and Valleywag, making her one of the top intellectuals to turn to when America needs an explanation about why we’re so weird about sex.

A former “web cam girl,” Grant just published her latest book, Playing The Whore: The Work Of Sex Work, which is unlike any book about sex work or feminism that I’ve ever read. In it, she critiques law enforcement’s treatment of actual or perceived sex workers; labor issues surrounding sex work; and the tendency for governments and some outreach workers to treat all sex workers as “victims” in need of being “rescued.” However complicated you might have thought issues pertaining to sex work were before, Grant’s excellent book is extraordinarily illuminating.

Grant recently spoke to me about “whore stigma,” feminism, police, and the media’s struggle to accurately cover sex workers. Our Q&A begins after the jump: Keep reading »

The "Tranny Awards" Will Now Be Known As 'Transgender Erotica Awards" (Because They Were Offending Themselves)

With outspoken advocates in the spotlight like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox, the transgender community is finally making some positive headway when it comes to fighting discrimination and ignorance with the public at large and within the  community After five year of honoring transgender adults in the entertainment industry at the annual “Tranny Awards,” the celebratory event has decided to change its name to the ‘Transgender Erotica Awards’ (T.E.A.) because, let’s be honest, “tranny” is a dehumanizing slur. Explains the event creator, Steven Grooby:

“When we named the show the ‘Tranny Awards’ in 2007 the climate was different and the usage of the word ‘tranny’ was appropriate as a catchy title in an online porn event… As we aim to be inclusive of all areas of transgender erotica and are looking to broaden the appeal of the show to mainstream media, we believed it was time to re-brand the event…I’d like to thank the extended trans adult community for their input and feedback over the last few months. We will be producing a show that the whole transgender adult community can be proud of.”

Amen to that. [Nerve]

Revolutionary Machine Promises Orgasms At The Push Of A Button

When I say someone invented an orgasm machine, I’m not talking about the world’s most effective vibrator. I’m talking about a surgical implant designed to give a woman an orgasm at the push of a button. Creator, surgeon Stuart Meloy, says he came up with the idea for the cigarette-sized device by accident. “I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically. I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that.’” No, he did not start teaching husbands how to manipulate their wives spines to climax – he made a machine that would do it for them.
