“There were parts about certain … well, ACTS that men supposedly don’t like performing on women that I have very strong feelings against. I would very much argue the opposite.”
– Justin Long on Neil LaBute’s play “Filthy Talk for Troubled Times,” in which he played a sleazy misogynist who hates giving cunnilingus. Justin, apparently, does not! This is good news, as Long walked past my apartment building this weekend and I said to myself, Amelia, he is a celebrity you might have a shot with. Good to know the crush would be worth my time … in the sack. But something tells me Drew Barrymore isn’t letting him go anytime soon. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Ah, the blow job. It’s idealized and beloved by most men, more so than AC/DC, bacon, or even James friggin’ Bond. But much like rainbows or winning the lottery, it’s hard to predict when or if it’ll happen. Perhaps the only thing more elusive is the woman who loves giving them. If your special lady is having a tough time swallowing this intimate act, here are 19 ways to get her to go down on you. Keep reading »
Have you heard Christina Aguilera‘s new song? It’s called “Woo Hoo” (“Woohoo”? “WooHoo”?), it features Nicki Minaj, and it is about cunnilingus. Have other songs been written about going down on a girl before? Beats me. This is surely a contender for the “Most Impassioned Song About Cunnilingus of the Year” award at the next Grammy Awards. Technically, the lyrics are non-explicit, but they are raunchy in the innuendo department. I wouldn’t, you know, crank it at top volume at work. Keep reading »
I’m concerned for the future of oral sex, folks. A few unflattering news items are threatening to make our favorite pastime a thing of the past. What a tragedy that would be. After the jump, the latest bad news about oral. We’re sorry, old friend. Keep reading »
You don’t really want to know what’s in the John Edwards sex tape, do you? Do you? Really?
Well, all right then: The Daily Beast spoke with multiple sources who’ve allegedly viewed the tape of Edwards and Rielle Hunter, and this icky, icky video that we don’t want to think about graphically depicts the former presidential candidate …. Keep reading »
I’ve never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. I guess because during my teenage years I figured out I was/am a perv and I just owned it. But in my decade-plus of hooking up with dudes, I’ve come to see being clear about what I want is a bit rare: Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky.
So, I’m going to help you out, boys. Here are some things your lady might want, but she’s too self-conscious to ask for. Don’t pressure anything, of course — but if you offer, you may be pleasantly surprised at how enthusiastically she accepts … Keep reading »
I sat on the couch straddling him, our chests pressed together and my hands pulling softly on his hair as we kissed. For the past half an hour, we’d been slowly unpeeling our many layers of clothing and we were down to just my pair of lacy underwear and his boxer briefs. We’d had a lovely third date—I adored that he called me “Ringlets,” just like Sawyer dubbed Kate “Freckles” on “Lost.” As the conversation veered into sexual territory a few times, it became more than obvious that, tonight, we were ready to seal the deal.
“Shall we take this into the other room,” he said, pointing towards his bedroom. We stood up and he grabbed my hand, leading me down the hall. I sat down on the side of his bed, and he stood before me. Good lord, he was hot. I began to take off his Calvin Kleins.
“Can I go down on you?” I asked, looking up at him. As soon as I said it, the question struck me as strange. Had I ever asked this before? Was this a question with more than one answer? After all, on our list of “27 Things Men Never Say,” the phrase “I’m not really into blow jobs” came in at number eight.
“No,” he said. Keep reading »
This French public service announcement is kind of like one of those eye trick images where you see either a vase or the outline of two faces. Is it trying to say that smoking is like giving a BJ to the tobacco industry? Or is the message that oral sex is as risky as smoking a ciggy? Well, Slate Double X has cleared it up with their handy-dandy French translation skills. Apparently, it’s the former—the text at the bottom reads, “Smoking is being tobacco’s slave,” and a spokesperson for the ad agency that made it explains, “The goal was simply to say ‘You are subjecting yourself to smoking.’ There is no analogy between sex and tobacco.” Huh? Also, I’m a little confused as to why, in the two male versions of the ad, the exec is wearing his suit jacket, while in the version with a teenage girl, he’s down to just his dress shirt? Or am I just reading too much into this now? [Double X] Keep reading »
You know, sometimes a gal reaches the end of her research, sits there for a moment and says to herself, “I don’t think I have enough information to fairly come to a conclusion.” That’s the way I felt after last week’s “hand jobs versus blow jobs” discussion. So, like a trooper, I went back out into the field and asked three more guys on my IM what they thought. You’re welcome. Keep reading »
