Girl Talk: Friends With Benefits? I Don’t Think So

Not long ago, I met a guy that reminded me of that sexy NPR storyteller Ira Glass. Instantly, I fell in nerd-love with this doppelganger. After dating for a while, though, we realized we had only one thing in common: sex. So we decided to be friends with benefits. According to a Michigan State University study, sixty-percent of college co-eds have been involved in an FWB relationship, and plenty of my thirty-something girlfriends were doing it to stay satisfied, so I figured I’d give the laid back, no-romantic-attachments approach to getting laid a whirl. A year later, faux-Ira and I still hang out and hump. After our most recent rendezvous last weekend, I began to wonder what I’m doing. What are the real benefits to friends with benefits? Sure, now I have an in-case-of-sexual-emergency-hit-Glass-lookalike. At the same time, I’ve started to realize my situation is causing me to question the meaning of friendship, challenging my chances at romances, and wobbling my emotional stability. Keep reading »

Amy Sedaris Demonstrates How To Clean Your (Felt) Vagina

Amy Sedaris was hilarious on a recent episode of “Chelsea Lately” — seriously, I would love to have a slumber party with those two. The best part is when she says she used to go to acting auditions and perform monologues from the female body tomb “Our Bodies Ourselves”. Classic. Keep reading »

HPV: Not Just For Crotches Anymore

According to a new study, HPV is moving on up…to mouths! That’s right, just when you thought Gardasil and Cervarix solved all your problems, now you have to worry about what else you’ve been opening wide. Since the ’70s. throat cancer cases have doubled, and the research shows HPV is to blame, with 39% of all occurrences caused by the human papilloma virus. Before you go cutting your man off from his favorite foreplay, listen to this: men are 35% more likely than women to develop oral cancer from HPV. Sheesh, making a new man go downtown may be riskier than you both think! Still, there’s more bad news — as of yet, there is no way to test male genitalia for HPV or anyone’s throat to see if they’re a carrier. So, it’s a roll of the dice and doctors fear you may even be able to contract the virus from kissing. There goes all the fun! Since this throat cancer link is a new revelation, the cervical cancer vaccines haven’t been tested or proven to prevent it. So, deep throat, you might want to use a condom for oral sex or just give that random stranger a handy and call it a night! [ABC News] Keep reading »

Waxing On About Waxing Off

I’ve always found it funny that as the Brazilian — and I’m talking waxing here, people — has became more popular among women, it’s beards, mustaches, and facial scruffiness that has become more in vogue for men. I can’t help but wonder why the women of my generation are hacking off their bushes while the men are letting their face hair grow wild. I’ll admit it. I’m a victim of pubic hair peer pressure. I mean, if you go to the beach, you have to go “there.” Once, I even had a waxident. However, now that I can put my bikini back in storage, I’m wondering, as a single lady on the loose, what the social obligations are to my crotch? I bet if we ask those non-manscaping guys if they’re going to start shaving as we back off waxing, we’ll find a hairy double standard. Keep reading »

Flashback: Lysol Is Not For Your Ladybits

Did you know Lysol used to advertise itself as appropriate for feminine hygiene? “A man marries a woman because he loves her,” the copy for this vintage ad reads. “Instead of blaming him if married love begins to cool, she should question herself.” According to this retro-minded public service message, a woman should “safeguard her dainty feminine allure by practicing complete feminine hygiene” with… a household disinfectant. Do not try this at home, people. Your vagina is for lovin’ — not Lysol. [mrbill]. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Would You Do With A Vag For A Day?

Dang, “What Would You Do With A D–k For A Day?” really was a hot topic huh? Thanks for stopping by gentlemen and cluing us into some fun we might have missed. But the thing really weighing on my mind? Do guys ever consider what they would do with a vagina for a day? I suspected that A) they would either be too uncreative to have actually considered it or B) only considered the sexual aspects, and after discussing the topic with a few of the guys on my IM, guess what? I was right! Keep reading »

A Spa For Women Concerned About Pelvic Fitness

Dr. Lauri Romanzi, a gynecologist who performs pelvic reconstruction surgery, will open the first spa dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genitals in Manhattan this month. Taking a cue from the creation of storefront dental spas, like BriteSmile, Dr. Romanzi developed her own concept of pelvic fitness. PHIT — short for pelvic health integrated techniques — will help women get healthy from the inside out with the use of Kegel exercises and laser treatments. We’re all for women taking care of their junk, but you can strengthen their vaginal muscles with products sold at adult stores, like Tighten Up or Ben Wa balls, for a lot cheaper than PHIT’s $150 signature gynecological exam.

Vagenius: The Evolution Of Monkey Business

While a lot of celebrities like to walk around with their cooters out, it turns out that just means they’re less evolved females. Big surprise! But seriously, evolution is to blame for all the problems men have reading women’s sexual signals — although it seems like the trade off was worth it. Back in the day, when we were monkeys, our privates were very public. When our hairy ancestors were in heat, their vajayjay butts would swell up and then they’d go around trying to get laid by showing off the hot mess to the males like this. Conversely, since the apes walked around on all fours, the men’s junk was hidden, so if they popped up, no one was the wiser. Needless to say, ape sexuality was totally backwards by today’s human standards. So, how’d our fates get reversed? Keep reading »

Sit In Someone’s Lap, Literally

We love art students! They are so crafty in their free time. Like this lovely lady who’s selling a couch she made in college on Craigslist. FYI, it’s shaped like a vagina. But plush poonani comes at a price — the seller is asking $600 “and a loving home”, but does warn that the couch does have a few scuff marks and stains. Eww. More pics of the cozy looking vessel, after the jump. [Craigslist] Keep reading »
