In 2010, Bordello Chic Is The New Home Decor Trend

The LA Times takes a closer look at "bordello chic," the latest trend in interior design that is sexing up businesses and nightclubs on the Left Coast. At club Voyeur, the chairs are all SM-themed, with lace-up corsets, leather straps, and restraint harnesses. Taking a nod from old-fashioned men's clubs and bordellos, the look i…

Reading one of my favorite fashion blogs, Fashion Gone Rogue, I came across this magazine layout, which features a remarkable leather bolero. As it turns out, the piece was manufactured by designer Úna Burke, who has created an entire line of these fetishistic leather garments.

Career Move Or Really Weird Sexual Fetish?

Earlier this week our own Dr. V told us about seven surprising sexual fetishes that perhaps we hadn't heard about before. A robot fetish, balloons, sneezing? Well, OK. If she says so — whatever floats people's boats! Then a few days later I was flipping through this week's Time Out New York and read about…

Doin’ It With Dr. V: 7 Surprising Fetishes

We all have hot buttons that love to get pushed. Like watching a good movie your new beau picked out, a new sexual partner has the potential to show you something that you love, that you never would have found on your own. Of course, we all agree, getting naked heats things up, but there'…

A Mask That’ll Bring Out Your Inner Sex Kitten

We've seen something like these kooky masks before. Designer Ilya Fleet created a similar series for sex boutique Coco de Mer. But shoe designer Minna Parikka's line of masks is a little less fetishistic, and they're made out of deconstructed and repurposed shoes. While Parikka typically designs pretty-in-pink, retro-style footwear, these colorful, playful masks are…

Did Nina Ricci Rip Off Those Heel-Less High Heels From A Fetish Designer?

Remember those eye-popping Nina Ricci heel-less high heels? You can see someone try to walk in them here or get a closer look here. Well, it looks as if Ricci's Olivier Theyskens may have gotten the idea from a more obscure fetish designer, Kronier. The outrageous Kronier line is decidedly fetishistic and probably best for…

Internet Porn Is The Best Sex Ed A Teen Could Have

Woe betide the sexual being who has a kinky fetish but doesn't have internet access. You could waste years of your life—decades, even!—fretting that you're the only sick f*** who likes her wrists handcuffed to the bedposts during sex. But with a few clicks of the mouse, anyone can get the lowdown via internet porn:…

A Sex Researcher’s 10 Favorite Fetishes

Kris Saknussemm, a sex researcher of 20 years, has been studying sexual fetishes his entire career.

The New Fetish: Girls In Seat Belts?

Ummm… file this under "who even came up with this?!" I don’t know if the "Girls Wearing Seat Belts" fetish actually exists or if someone is just trying to mess with our minds, but Jalopnik posted a gallery of this exceptionally odd fixation. Albeit, most of the images don’t feature your everyday girl buckling u…

Would You Wear These Shoes?

I have to say, these are some of the most extreme high-heels I've ever seen. Created by Karo's Shoes, these skyscrapers have nine-inch heels that are more stilts than stilettos. Coupled with the leather ankle strap and the wood heel, I'd venture this is the perfect pair for hardcore shoe fetishists. Another similar model ha…

Sexy Solutions For Setbacks In The Sack

Groundbreaking researchers, at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, have found that premature ejaculation is all thanks to DNA. Previously thought of as a psychological problem or the result of effective lingerie, these doctors discovered it simply has to do with the gene that controls serotonin. The good is that it’s nobody’s fault that the sexy…

Five “Philias” That Freak Us Out & Five That Don’t Sound So Bad

I once dated someone that had a thing for pretty feet. It didn't really bother me because he usually only admired my feet. But sometimes, especially in the summer, he would introduce me to someone and ask, "Doesn't she have pretty feet?" This would freak me out because beauty is subjective and I didn't want…

Sex On TV: Network TV Caught With Their Pants Down

While sex used to be saved for cable television shows, networks have been trying to compete by showing some skin themselves. Hits like Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives have been steaming the storylines, and the ratings, up. Over the past few years the change has been so noticeable, consumer watchdogs, the Parents Television Council, decided…
