Some sexual fetishes are so outrageous that we can hardly believe they’re real. Take, for example the recent video we posted of Dave, the 27-year-old who thinks his balloons are his kids. REAL! People who are infatuated with balloons are known as looners. How well do you know your paraphilias? Can you tell the REAL fetishes from the ones we made up?

I spent most of last week being confused/disturbed by Panty O’s new kegel panties, which allow you to exercise your vaginal muscles while you wear the underwear. I found this frightening, but then I received a press release for the Magic Banana. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either. It’s a flexible accessory for “strengthening your inner magical muscles.” I’m not going to get anymore detailed, but I think you should watch the instructional video. Just do it. It uses the phrase “in the smiling position.” So it’s marketed as a kegel exerciser that is supposed to help you achieve multiple orgasms.
The Magic Banana led me down a kegel wormhole. Pun intended. Let me warn you, most kegel exercise products are pastel and look like Medieval torture devices. But if your vagina’s been slacking off, you might want to check out some of the products available to work the lazy girl out.

I’m pretty sure that the best thing to come out of the nation’s obsession with mommy porn series 50 Shades of Grey is this video of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb fondling ben wa balls on “The Today Show.” Ben Wa balls, of course, are shoved up inside your vagina to stimulate and encourage greater orgasms. I wonder if Kathie Lee took a set home…
The other day, I clicked on a perfume ad and left the room for a second. When I came back I thought for sure my computer had been redirected to a sex toy site, because wow, the majority of women’s fragrances these days seem to be packaged in a vibrator or hollowed-out dildo. To prove my point, I’ve rounded up 10 of the most egregious offenders–no comment necessary. Click through to see for yourself…
In his new project “Grand Old Party,” NYU graduate student Matthew Epler found a sexier way to visualize the Republican presidential candidates. Using Gallup’s website for data, he determined the width of each toy by approval rating while the height was determined by the length of each campaign. But these aren’t just imaginings. Epler took it a step further and made replicas of the toys out of black silicone. They are available for purchase on his website, provided that you would want to masturbate with them … even ironically. You can see his full line of Republican dildos here including Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry, who come in butt plugs. Um. Awesome. [The Daily Beast]
A decade ago, my grandmother, then 82, broke her hip. Her recovery involved a month in the hospital while she learned to walk comfortably again, a month that drove my mother, my grandmother’s sole caretaker, to the brink of insanity.
“I can’t go on,” she’d moan. “Calgon, take me away.”
Such was her constant refrain, and this was owing to the fact my grandmother’s behavior while infirm was impossible. Every half-hour my mother fielded a phone call from the hospital: “Bring me my robe! Different hand soap! Scotch tape!” she’d demand.
She’d be angry with a nurse or the limited food selection in the cafeteria, and the constant catering to such needs without nary a please or thank you? It was too much for one woman, my mother, to bear. Keep reading »
For some, the pleasure of returning text messages is one that should be denied. The Textercuff, part handcuff, part thumb gag, is the perfect sex toy for restraining your technology addict from the instant gratification he desires. Deny him the touch of his iPhone, shame him for being too plugged in, make him beg to tap the keys, punish him until he knows who’s the boss of his text messages. Then release his thumb from bondage and let him have at it. I’m dubbing this Kinkology. [Gizmodo]

Vibrators as we know them haven’t always existed. Back in the day, women used some crazy (and scary looking) contraptions on their nether regions. Vibrators were originally introduced in the 19th century as a medical tool to treat female hysteria. Doctors would give the women “pelvic massages” until they had orgasms. But they found this course of treatment to be too laborious (oh, poor them), hence the invention of the vibrator. San Francisco’s new Antique Vibrator Museum will feature a special exhibit of antiquated sex devices. Like this “Blood Circulator,” which was popular in the late 1800′s. Operated by a hand crank, the device allegedly cured more than hysteria. It was used to treat pain, deafness, anemia, heart disease, polio, and menstrual cramps. Well, doesn’t that thing look fun … and vaguely like a meat grinder. Click through to see some more of the museums’s craziest collectibles, sure to frighten the crap out of your vagina.
