Ask and ye shall receive! A few weeks ago, I posted about the Sqweel, a 10-tongued sex toy that promised to blow my mother-effing mind, and wished that someone would get it for me for Christmas. A few days later, one arrived at my desk. The timing was perfect, as this weekend was rainy and cold in New York, so indoor activities were already on the menu. Did the Sqweel live up to my expectations? Find out, after the jump. Keep reading »

Blow-up dolls have feelings, too, you know. They’re not simply inanimate objects that lonely men can have their way with. At least that’s the premise behind the Japanese film “Air Doll.” Based on a manga, “Air Doll” tells the story of an inflatable sex doll who magically comes to life and explores the world after her owner leaves for work each day. She even starts dating a man she meets in a video rental store. The movie, which was shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, isn’t available on Netflix quite yet, but we’ve already added it to our queue in anticipation of its U.S. release. Keep reading »
This is the conversation that ensued when I sent Jessica the link to a post on the Sqweel, a 10-tongued sex toy:
Jessica: Oh my God! That’s so awesome!!!!!! I want one!
Amelia: I DO TOO!
J: What if it goes too fast though? It looks like it could bruise your clit!
A: I bet you can vary the speeds. Keep reading »
In the November issue of Marie Claire, dating blogger Maura Kelly writes about a guy she dated briefly who confessed to enjoying “a kind of sex that people don’t usually associate with straight men.” Oh yes, Kelly’s man liked to take it from behind, courtesy of a strap-on attached to his female partner. (Like the one Madonna bought for her and Guy Ritchie in the photo at left!) He assured Kelly he wasn’t gay or bisexual, he just liked to be dominated. And Kelly complied, giving him what he wanted for the few months they dated. I found this whole story fascinating, as I’ve always, admittedly, been a little curious about what it would be like to be THAT dominant in bed. To be the one doing the actual penetrating, I suppose. Here’s how Kelly describes it:
As I moved my hips and did my thing, I felt strangely removed from the experience. The kinky deed seemed unsexual and anything but intimate — after all, my primary erogenous zone was covered up by a giant fake penis.
In a supreme stroke of moronic-ness, this Friday Alabama’s Supreme Court upheld a 1998 ban on selling sex toys on Friday. It’s still perfectly legal to go Down South on yourself in private, thank God. But Alabama’s highest court said the legislature is allowed to ban the sale of sex tales in public, meaning it’s a crime to sell someone a vibrator or a paddle! A sex shop in Hoover, AL, called Love Stuff challenged the ban on the grounds it violated a horny person’s right to sexual privacy, yet the heat-addled judicial brains in Alabama upheld the ban as matter of public morality. Sorry, but the only thing morally wrong with this is making the good folks of Alabama wait 3-5 business days for a vibe to come in the mail. [The Birmingham News] Keep reading »
You may have heard that rabid fans of “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert have taken to throwing sex toys at the singer when he’s on stage. It started out as the usual bras and panties. Then, things got kinky. Handcuffs. Whips. Dildos. You name it; they pummel him with it. At first, Lambert said, it was “exciting,” but when he almost got hit in the head with a bra, he wasn’t so sure. Judging by what he does when a phallus lands on stage in this video, I’m guessing he’s really over it. Keep reading »
Well, I’ve heard of some upscale vibrators, but this one really takes the cake. According to Stuff, a New Zealand woman shelled out $2,229 to become the first person in the country to buy an 18-karat gold vibrator that was created by the high-end sex toy company LELO. The style of the vibe is called Yva, and it was specially “flown in especially for the anonymous buyer.” So much for that whole recession thing! I can’t imagine spending that much money on a sex toy. A pair of shoes? Sure. But not a vibrator, even if it is gold-plated. [Stuff] Keep reading »
Are you a cucumber abuser? If you are, I think you know exactly what I mean by that. And it’s got to stop! The cucumbers can’t take it anymore! Created by an erotic shop called Sara’s Secret, these ads show just how traumatic life can be for poor, innocent cucumbers who find themselves in the hands of bored, sexually frustrated women. Don’t do it, girls! Go battery-powered instead. Or, there’s always the washing machine. [Agency Spy] Keep reading »
We’re written about dog sex toys before and didn’t think we’d ever have the opportunity to write about them again, but, well, SURPRISE! The thing about this particular doggy sex doll, made by Brazilian pet toy company Petsmiling, is that it’s, uh, anatomically correct. The doll is described by the company as “a female canine manufactured in soft rubber with a silicone vagina and an easy to clean reservoir.” Two thoughts. 1) How sexist! Where is the boy version? 2) Not even the most insane pet lover like myself would be cool with cleaning out that “reservoir.” They should really make one that is dishwasher safe, amiright?!
