I consider it my job (well, I guess it is my job) to track the clusterfuck of sex surveys and data inundating the interwebs and bring you the results. (Because I know you are just sitting around WAITING to find out what kind of car people most like to have a quickie in.) According to a survey of 2,018 adults done by car manufacturer BBA Reman (and why they were doing a sex survey, we’ll never know, but they did), 49 percent of Britons have had sex in a car at least once. OK, not shocking. But wait. Here’s the shocking part: Of those 49 percent who’ve done car sex, 27 percent said their preferred model was a Ford Fiesta, closely followed by a Volkswagon Golf. Seriously? Those are some tiny ass cars. It’s hard to imagine fitting one person in the backseat, let alone two. It’d be like fucking in a pistachio shell. If posed with this question myself, I’d have picked something more like a Hummer, just so I could move my legs, not because I support the gas-guzzling beasts. Keep reading »
Just in case it’s not enough to listen to “Get Lucky” on repeat while you get down to business in the bedroom, it appears that you can now protect yourself from pregnancy and STDs with Daft Punk-themed condoms. These boxes of “Get Lucky” condoms were produced by Durex UK and apparently sent out as a gift to some prominent DJs. No word on whether they’ll ever be available to the public, but in any case, it’s a good reminder that whenever you’re up all night to get some, use protection! [Laughing Squid]
Nothing like the discovery of one million counterfeit condoms to make you extra, super paranoid about having safe sex. More than $60,000 worth of phony condoms, coming from China and headed for the unsuspecting genitals of Europe, was intercepted by customs agents in central Poland. “Basically, goods from certain places are checked more than others,” said a spokesman for the customs agency. China is notorious for shipping out condoms that are covered in cheap or hazardous lubricant, full of holes, made from crap materials that split and tear, or produced in unhygienic surroundings. And obviously, these bogus condoms are useless in protecting people from unwanted pregnancies and STIs, posing major health crisis if they hit consumer markets. Um, that’s very scary. It almost makes you want to make condoms at home. Is that hard to do? [Telegraph] [Photo of condoms from Shutterstock]
Anti-trafficking advocates, LGBT organizations, lawmakers and public health advocates have gathered in Albany, New York today to push for new legislation about condoms. Yes, condoms.
Currently 39 million male condoms and two million female condoms are distributed for free in New York State. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, “Consistent and correct use of the male latex condom reduces the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV transmission.” If used correctly, rubbers can also prevent unplanned pregnancies.
Yet having pockets full of condoms could also lead to a potential prostitution arrest by law enforcement, or even be used as incriminating evidence by prosecutors in trial. If trafficking victims, sex workers, LGBTQ persons and others are targeted by law enforcement, what is the incentive to have safe sex? Keep reading »
Meet Katelyn Campbell, a high school student council vice president, Wellesley College-bound senior, and sex education rabble-rouser who is filing an injunction against her principal for threats he made after she boycotted and spoke out against an abstinence-only sex-ed assembly at her school.
According to ThinkProgress.org, Principal George Aulenbacher at George Washington High School in West Virginia threatened to call up Wellesley College to complain that Campbell had “bad character” because she refused to attend the abstinence assembly and filed a complaint with the ACLU because the public school event was hosted by a conservative religious organization.

Jörg Sprave of The Slingshot Cannel took the Bill Gates’ Next Generation Condom Challenge and came up with this condom applicator slingshot gun. I don’t have a penis, but I think if I did, this method of condom application would scare the crap out of me. On a more positive note, I really enjoyed Jörg’s salutation to the Gates’: “Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gates, nothing fascinates male human beings more than guns and sex.” [Laughing Squid]
