9 Crazy Ways To Remind Your Partner That Sex Is Supposed To Be Fun

Fun Sex Games

A depressing new study conducted at the University of Toronto explored couples’ real motivations to have sex. Researches found that they were able to group peoples’ reasons for doing the deed into two categories: approach (“I want to increase intimacy” or “I want to feel better about myself”) or avoidance (“I don’t want to feel guilty” or “I don’t want to get into a fight about it”). As you might have suspected, the couples who approached sex rather than avoided it tended to feel more satisfied in their relationships. But still, this made us sad. Whatever happened to having sex just because it’s fun and exciting? Last time we checked it was one of the few purely enjoyable activities for grown-ups (cue the existential ennui of adulthood.) We happen to think sex should be like a carnival in your bed, which is why we’ve come up with these strange and wonderful ways to make it feel more like one, and convince even the most sex-avoidant couples that sex can and should be FUN!

Vibrators, Sex-plained

Have you heard of the YouTube series “Sexplanations With Dr. Doe”? I hadn’t until just now, but it looks like I’ve got a lot of videos to watch the next time I’m home sick with a cold. In a video posted this week, here is sexologist Dr. Lindsey Doe showing you how a vibrator gets made. This particular vibrator is made by the company Crave and is a little on the pricy side, but it’s worth watching for explanations about why vibes do what they do and what you should look out for when purchasing one. (There’s no sexytimes in this video, but the audio and imagery are both probably NSFW!) [Sexplanations via The Gloss]

Federal Employees Get Free Vibrators During Government Shutdown

While the Republicans in Congress are busy fucking the country, federal employees who’ve been affected by the government shutdown can fuck themselves thanks to Vibrators.com. The company is shipping 200 vibrators per day to those employees deemed “nonessential,” in hopes of giving them something to do while they “have so much time” on their hands. Awesome.

Frisky Q&A: The Ladies Behind The Unbound Box

woman dressed like playboy bunny

We get lots of sex toys sent to us at The Frisky’s office. Like, lining-the-bookshelves lots.  Don’t get us wrong: we’ll never say no to a new vibrator or free condoms. But truth be told, the packaging and aesthetic of so many sex toys give us a seedy vibe. We don’t want our sex toys to make us feel like we’re lurking around at the tawdry XXX Love Emporium on the side of the highway. We want our sex toys to remind us of the classy, sexy, sensual women that we are. [Unless we're using them as decorative conversation starters, that is. -- Amelia]

Right from the get-go, the Unbound box felt different: it’s a nondescript white box that arrives in the mail through a subscription service and is filled with sex toys all geared towards women. The toys hail from quality companies like Babeland, Lelo and Glas Toys and are meant for use with partners of any gender or sexual orientation. My Unbound box came in the mail with a clitoral vibrator, a glass dildo, lubricant, condoms, a lingerie bag, and a spare contact lens case to carry in my purse for “sleepovers” — score! When I found out that Unbound is a women-owned startup and that the three founders — Greer, Sarah Jayne and Katie — select all the sex toys themselves, I knew I had to talk to them.

Here’s what a couple of the Unbound cofounders Greer Goldenberg and Sarah Jayne Kinney have to say about their great idea:
