Ms. Christian Grey? Study Tells Women To Take Charge During Sex

If you think it’s a George of the Jungle you’re looking for in the bedroom, think again. Despite our fantasies of Don Draper or Christian Grey, it’s most likely a Michael Cera type who will be able to satisfy us the most sexuallyA new Yale University study published in the Sex Roles journal (yes, that exists) found that men who believe they need to be dominant during playtime are less comfortable asking women about their sexual needs and discussing their own.

The study surveyed 357 women and 126 men ages 18 to 29, all heterosexual and sexually active, on their sexual confidence and assertiveness.

Turns out that adhering to traditional gender roles could damage a man’s confidence — and make him less likely to use protection. In the survey room, there was a bowl of female condoms with a sign that read: “Protect yourself and your partner. Please take some! Free Female Condoms.” The more the subjects believed in traditional power dynamics, the less they were likely to take the condoms. Read more…

Rubber Man suit Target Halloween

If someone showed up at my apartment one night in the Rubber Man suit from “American Horror Story,” I would be thrilled for a kinky night of fun with Zachary Quinto or Evan Peters.  But if that night is October 31st, it’s just some fucking trick-or-treater who shopped at Target this Halloween. BUZZKILL. But, hey, the gimp suit is only $42.49: plenty of money leftover for duct tape and ping pong paddles. [Target.com via Twitter.com/DylanMcDermott]

“50 Shades Of Grey” Magazine: Yeah, We Bought It & We’re Sharing the Dirty Details

Like it or not, Fifty Shades of Grey has become a bonafide global phenomenon we can’t seem to shut up about. So it’s no surprise E.L. James’ steamy series has actually inspired its very own MAGAZINE. If you’ve been to a magazine stand, you may have noticed that there’s an actual periodical devoted to all things Fifty … and it’s entitled, Fifty Shades … of American Women Who Love the Book & Live the Life. Yes, I am being completely serious. No, this is not a very early April Fools joke. The one-off publication is basically a collector’s item for Fifty fans — filled with silly, Cosmo-ish sex quizzes, Fifty Shades-inspired beauty tips, blurbs from women who swear the books transformed their sex lives, and true tales of real people living the BDSM lifestyle. In other words, if you’re one of those fans who is waiting with bated breath for the fourth book and first flick, this fanatical publication might be able to tide you over for, oh, a couple of hours or so.

How are babies and BDSM related, you ask? The answer is the new 50 Shades of Grey baby onesies found on Etsy.com. Your baby will be sure to turn heads wearing these white ensembles, sporting phrases like “9 months ago mommy read Fifty Shades of Grey,” or “all mommy wanted was a night with Mr. Grey.” I pity the child who grows up and sees baby pictures dressed up in poorly written erotica-inspired attire!

5 Myths About Kinky Sex From “50 Shades Of Grey”

As someone who has identified as kinky for over a decade, both professionally and personally, I have to admit I was absolutely appalled when the 50 Shades trilogy first hit the mainstream. I read all three books, and as I read some of the myths and stereotypes, I had to do some deep breathing.

I couldn’t help thinking, “These are the books that have become the cultural reference point for kink?” As I thought this, a bit of my kinky little heart broke. But, my opinion has changed since then.

I still think the books are poorly written and that there is much better erotica out there. Regardless, these are the books that have everyone talking about sex and kink. At this point, the value of that far outweighs some tired writing clichés. Read more…
