Girl, we don’t need a reason to get busy! Rain or shine, spring or fall, before work or late at night, we are always in the mood to get it in. But infinitely fascinating studies about other people’s sex lives reveal that there are peak times, months, and even weather for bumpin’ uglies. According to The Daily Beast, which collected these studies, almost 10 percent of all babies are conceived during the month of December — which may mean that sperm and egg are less ripe at other times of the year, but may also mean we’re in a randy mood after a few martinis at the holiday party.

I’ve never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. The idea that some women can’t ask for what they want, or don’t know what they want in the first place, is foreign to me.
However, I’m well-aware that I may not be in the majority here. Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky — and that’s a crying shame. Sexual relationships (any relationships, actually) thrive when you know what you want and can communicate it effectively to your partner clearly. Therefore, I would love to help you out, boys and girls, more so than I already did with my piece “5 Moves Women Love In Bed, But Can Be Too Afraid to Ask For.” (And I apologize for how heteronormative this advice is, but my only sexual partners have been dudes!)
Men, don’t pressure anything here, of course — but if you offer, you may be pleasantly surprised at how enthusiastically she accepts … Keep reading »
Something new to be afraid of — or aspire to? A 28-year-old woman in India went to her doctor complaining about an uncontrollable sex drive and died four days later of rabies. From a puppy bite. Yes, puppies can kill you. Rabies, which causes an inflammation of the brain, can trigger hypersexuality shortly before death, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. (Admittedly, the Mail probably shouldn’t be anyone’s first source for medical advice.) The unnamed woman’s puppy bite went untreated for two months, despite the fact that bites from animals should be treated within 24 hours. Unless you want to be in a state of constant arousal for four days, that is. [Daily Mail UK]

Lez-be-honest, you know it’s true: over half of all women are attracted to other gals, according to a study at Boise State University of Idaho.
In a poll given to 484 students of varying sexual orientations, 60 percent of the female participants claimed “some level of attraction to other women,” 45 percent had kissed another woman, and 50 percent had fantasized about another woman. This study provides another example of the fluidity of sexuality, rightfully showing its complexity extends beyond a “do you like penis or vagina?” duality. Yet kissing other women, especially in a college/party environment, has been famously glorified by Katy Perry and others, and in some (some!) cases is done to incite attention or pleasure from male onlookers. Likewise, what does attraction mean? Possibilities include everything from the enjoyment of pornography to the appreciation of another woman’s physique or style. (I don’t make these points to contest the study’s results, only to highlight the subjectivity of the findings.) Keep reading »
Any Girl Scout worth her merit badges knows to always “Be prepared!” But my Scout leader never got to the part about doing the horizontal polka out in the woods. Fortunately Mountain Gear, an outdoor sports supply web site, has got any grownup Girl Scout covered. Their “Backcountry Intimacy Kit” — sounds so sexy, doesn’t it? — contains three lubricated condoms, two packets of lube, four wet wipes, four compressed towels and a disposal bag. Making love by the campfire can be sexy, safe and clean! Keep reading »
April Bonjour, of California (who incidentally has a fantastic porn star name), is suing Pipedream Products Inc. claiming that their vibrator nearly killed her! Bonjour states that she was using the product “in the manner intended,” when a sharp pain led to bleeding so intense she called 911. The poor thing required multiple pints of blood upon arrival at the hospital. Both Bonjour and her son were fearful the injury would kill her (talk about an awkward conversation!). The injury occurred last November, though Bonjour is just now seeking damages in the amount of $25,000. I wonder if the toy in question has been confiscated for inspection of product flaws? Otherwise it may be that Ms. Bonjour had gotten just a bit too creative with her technique. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Oh, the joys of family: this weekend my conservative older sister is coming to visit, which means I’ve got to get my act together. Sweep the floor. Hide the Percosets. And for God’s sake, unplug the vibrator. Luckily I have a designated “goodie drawer” where I keep my toys, but in high school I hid my very first vibe amongst my undies and prayed that neither of my parents ever tried to put away my laundry.
Snoopers be snoopin’ and a girl’s gotta be prepared. Here are 13 places you could hide vibrators of all sizes and (probably) not get caught!

That geeky girl in the floral prints and glasses from “Blossom” is dishing out sex advice? Damn, I must be old. Yes, Mayim Bialik has plenty to say about sex and she is dishing it out on Kveller.com, a Jewish parenting web site. With baby-making on the brain, Mayim quotes the Torah on waiting seven days, plus an additional five, for a woman’s most fertile time. It’s all part of being a good Jew, you see. ”Judaism loves love. We love sex. We are told it is a mitzvah to make love and to especially make love on Shabbat, when God’s presence is close,” Mayim explains. “A woman’s right to sexual satisfaction is detailed in her ketubah, her marriage contract, independent of pregnancy.” Keep reading »
