A Bathtub, A Blender, And A Hospital Visit

Undercover Lovers

Anyone who has ever had to explain their sex toys to a snooping family member, friend, or airport security officer, can tell you, it’s a bit awkward. You’re fumbling for excuses like I Love Lucy because you have some explainin’ to do. But how do you really verbalize why you need a hot pink rabbit? Finally, there are ceramic sex toys so discreet, they probably even match your grandmother’s china. [Cool Hunting]

The Nookie Know-It-All: Your Sexual Tool Kit

My husband came into the relationship with some fun sex toys, but after awhile, I decided it was a little weird to play with toys someone else had used. Any advice on how to build a sex toy starter kit I can call my own? — Using Used Goods, Los Angeles, CA

After awhile??? So you’re saying you actually used something that was INSIDE another woman? Sorry for the caps and itals, but I have a hard enough time using the same bar of soap with my roommate, let alone using a toy that was in another girl’s vag. Considering our hygienic difference, you might not be into the same sex toys I’d be into (anal beads covered with Saran Wrap). But, on the off chance you’re not super freaky, I’ve got some good pointers for you. Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: SATC Vacays, Sex Toys, And Housing In Paris

  • A travel company plans to take advantage of the May 30 release of the Sex and the City movie by offering theme vacations, which will cost $15,000 to $24,000 for a four-day tour. Save your money, people. If you want to go to Saks, Barneys, Tiffany, and Patricia Field, we’d be happy to give you the addresses. [Reuters]
  • Some French females are bartering for housing with sex. [The Times, U.K.]
  • Be careful what sex toys you purchase, because the industry is largely unregulated (ever wonder why it says “novelty product” on the packaging?) Some materials, like plastic or latex, are porous and can’t be properly sterilized. Plus, phthalates, a chemical often added to plastics to make them more flexible, can leach out over time and be absorbed through the body’s mucus membranes. Stick to silicone.

    The Nookie Know-It-All: Spicing It Up In The Sack

    “Lots of things about my relationship are great, but the sex is vanilla — my boyfriend is weirded out by my collection of sex toys, and isn’t willing to experiment. What should I do?” — In Need Of Spice, New Orleans, LA

    I think this depends on what kind of toys you have. If your collection is filled with gag-balls and strap-ons, I can’t say I blame your boyfriend for feeling uneasy. On the other hand, if all you want to do is lock him to the bed with furry pink handcuffs, there’s some room to negotiate.

    Britney’s Mailbox

    Britney just can’t get any peace. Justin mocked her at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony (“The world is full of Madonna wannabes. I might have even dated a couple.”), K-Fed wants her to pay nearly $1 million in legal fees, and some sicko keeps sending her sex toys in the mail. For the last six weeks, Britney has been receiving packages with sex toys and crazy letters describing the correspondent’s fantasies involving Brit. On a sort of positive note, though, she is supposed to make a guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother this season. Cross your fingers that she doesn’t forget her lines, that someone watches the show, and that Britney’s career finally climbs out of the Dumpster. [Times of India]

    The Daily Squeeze: Happiness, Chores, and Swedish Drugstores

  • Half of being happy comes down to genes, according to a study of nearly 1,000 pairs of identical twins. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland found that genetics controlled 50 percent of the personality traits that make people happy, while other factors, like relationships, health, and careers, determine the rest. [Reuters]
  • American men have increased how much housework they do, doubling their contribution in the last 40 years. Instead of washing dishes and folding laundry 15 percent of the time, which is how it was back in the 1960s, men now do more than 30 percent of the total housework, a report released by the Council on Contemporary Families says. We’d like to see that number come up to 50 percent in the next few years, and we’re pretty sure that 51 percent of the population would agree. [USA Today]
  • The state-run pharmacy chain in Sweden will begin selling sex toys to satisfy customer demand. After a survey revealed that customers wanted to see dildos and massage oils at stores, Apoteket decided to offer them for a one-year trial period starting in May. Will they be on Aisle 3, with the plastic forks and spoons? [The Local]

    The Daily Squeeze: Infections, Housing Shortages, and Incomes

  • It’s possible that your pet is the one giving you UTIs. A study at the University of Minnesota found that E. coli strains, including the ones that cause urinary tract infections, can easily pass between people and their pets. Now they just have to figure out whether this actually increases the risk of a UTI, so don’t start blaming your furry friend quite yet. [Reuters]
  • In a South African sex survey, men making more money were most likely to use sex toys — 51 percent used them in the highest income bracket, compared with 29 percent on average. If money doesn’t buy love, it can certainly buy some lovemaking accouterments. [The Times (S. Africa)]
  • There isn’t enough university housing for French students, so many of them continue living at home while attending school, which can make hooking up a little complicated. The French students’ union UNEF is campaigning for the government to construct more student housing with racy posters that feature a young couple getting it on in a bed with a parent sleeping on either side of them.
