A post office in Alabama was evacuated last week after a suspicious substance began leaking out of a package onto 12 to 15 other packages. After coming into contact with the liquid, two people were hospitalized as a precaution, CBS Atlanta reported. It caused a burning sensation on the skin and people were worried that the substance could be harmful in some way.
As it turns out, however, skin is exactly where this substance is meant to go. The liquid that leaked out of the package was actually KY Intense Arousal Gel. Keep reading »
Working at TheFrisky has it’s unexpected perks. I get free books, free makeup and sometimes, free pants! Today, when I arrived at the office, there was a giant — I mean GIANT– bag waiting for me on my desk. I was like, Oh shit! What’s this!? I tore open the bag and inside were … three HUGE bottles of lube. Seriously, if I used lube every day for the rest of my life, I’d probably never be able to make a dent. So I took to the interwebs to see what else I might be able to do with my lifetime supply of lube. Because I’m not the wasteful type.

Writer Amanda Green talked to three women about life before and after lube to find out how they came to start using lubricant and how it changed their love and sex lives. What they had to say may surprise you! Read more…

I still get a little flustered when I have to walk up to some random checkout counter and whisper, “Hey, can I have those Trojans? (even more hushed) Yes. The Magnums, please.” I accept the fact that it is a little childish of me, but so what? I believe a girl is entitled to discretion. Luckily I stumbled upon a website where I can have all of my sexytimes needs delivered right to my door.

Okay, someone please tell me what a $1,500, 55-gallon vat of Passion Natural Water-Based Lubricant can be used for. Usually a dollop will do ya. Fifty-five gallons seems beyond excessive. When you’re done explaining that, please look at the “customers who viewed this item also viewed” section. The “Accoutrement Horse Head Mask,” I understand. But I need to know what you do with a “Fresh Whole Rabbit” and a “Scientific Testicle Self Exam Form.” I am frightened. [Buzzfeed]
“[The gimp suit] is really uncomfortable in the — I don’t know how else to say it — crotch area. It’s tight; it’s tight everywhere. It’s all latex, so it’s very thin, almost like you’re walking around naked, and it’s chilly. You gotta lube up for it and slip it on. … [After filming] I just basically peel the suit off and hang it up and put on my normal clothes and go home and take a shower. I don’t know if you’ve ever put on lube before, but it’s not like there’s a layer of Vaseline on you; it’s just almost like your skin is super smooth and slick; it feels kind of gross, but at the same time, you feel really well moisturized. You’re not like, “Ew, get it off of me.” You’re more like, “This is kind of gross. I want to get this off as soon as possible. But maybe I can stop and get a sandwich first.”
— Evan Peters plays the lovesick serial killer rapist ghost Tate Langdon on “American Horror Story,” where he clocks in a lot of time in a latex gimp suit. Good to know it’s as uncomfortable as it looks. But at least he knows his way around a bottle of lubricant, ladies! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Everything is better with bacon, even your sex life. Now you can get all greased up like a wild carnival hog while porking with BaconLube. Yes, it’s what it sounds like. Originally invented as an April Fool’s joke, bacon trailblazers J & D foods (of Baconnaise and BaconSalt fame) decided to make bacon-flavored lube a reality. Why? Because apparently, people out there in the world are really turned on by pork. Oh, hogwash. That’s just gross. [Huffington Post]
I do a lot of grumping and grousing here at The Frisky. But when companies do something awesome, I like to give credit where credit is due. K-Y jelly has some new commercials going on the air in September for it’s K-Y Intense lube and one of them features a lesbian couple. (They’re actors.) The two women are shown in their bedroom talking about their great relationship and then under the covers, post-sex. As blogger Vanessa Valenti wrote on Feministing, “It’s perhaps the only ad I’ve seen referring to lesbians having sex that doesn’t portray them as oversexualized, objectified and not really gay but just performing for dudes’ pleasure.” I couldn’t have put it better. Good job, K-Y, and may your K-Y Intense lubricant be just as amazeballs as you claim! [YouTube via Feministing] Keep reading »
Something no one tells you about sex? A good romp in the sack can be dangerous. No, I’m not talking about potentially deadly sexually transmitted diseases and infections, like HIV. (Although those are dangerous too, obviously.) I’m talking about the rug burn, pulled hair, and the overzealous nipple bite (ow!) that every woman needs to watch out for. And no, a hickey doesn’t count as an “injury.” Keep reading »
