Friends with benefits often get a bum rap. But I am happy to report that they are acing it in the condom department. An online survey, the results of which were published in the Journal of Sex Research, found that FWBs are the most likely to use condoms during sex. Of the 376 mostly twentysomethings who were questioned, about half said they were involved in a FWB situation. On the downside, the FWBers reported being less sexually satisfied and less able to discuss their sexual desires with their partners. No surprise there. Keep reading »
Can we all just agree, as a society, no oral sex on public transportation? Kthx. Two couples were filmed on a New York City subway giving/receiving blowjobs in a very NSFW video posted on World Star Uncut. It’s way too overacted to be real, in my opinion — or maybe I’m just not giving my blowjobs vigorously enough. Is this a spontaneous act of teenaged bad decision making? Porn actors filming a gonzo video? Does it matter? There could be no grosser setting than a 6 train car with the faint smell of urine and unforgiving flourescent lighting. BRB, off to buy my hand sanitizer in triplicate. [Gothamist]
Well, for starters, because it’s dangerous and you could die like a couple in South Africa did back in 2008. Also, because you might cause train delays as was the case for a couple in Sweden who were caught doing it in a car parked way too close to the tracks.
“Often when cars are sitting near the tracks, it can be copper thieves at work or unfortunately a person who has tired of life,” the train dispatcher Mattias Hellberg explained. “It was two people who were very happy and having a little moment of passion. The driver told them they weren’t being very discrete there and asked them to get moving.”
This seems like common sense to me, but I suppose a reminder is in order. Having sex on or near the train tracks is a really stupid idea. [The Local]
My parents raised me with a certain set of values: 1) The sunny side of the street causes headaches, 2) Lateness is rude and disrespectful, 3) No one wants to see photos of another person’s vacation. Not, like, genuinely. Not, like, ever. Society pitched in and taught me a handful of others including the all-important: All men want sex all the time.
I absorbed this message and, under its guidance, I threw myself at my high school friend Bob. I was 17 when this happened and I’d had a crush on Bob for ages. We’d gone to see a movie, and when we were about to say goodbye, I said, “Hey. Bob. What if I kissed you goodnight?”
And Bob said, “Oh. Gosh. Um, I’m not sure that’s a good idea. I think of us as being just, you know, like, friends.”
Now, in fairness to Bob, were you to see a photo of me in 1996, you’d understand his position. You’d be, like, “Wow. Well, I bet that you were pretty on the inside.” Regardless, the rejection was traumatic. Keep reading »
