Do You Name Your Favorite Sex Toys?

March 8, 2013


We know that guys name everything from their cars to the penises — and yes, it turns out that grown men who pay mortgages and have kids still do both of these things. So what about the ladies: Have any of you ever named a favorite sex toy that knew just how to get you to your happy place? If so, do tell us what you named it!

And if you haven’t, then tell us this: What do you think would make a good pet name for a sex toy? (We heard “Sherlock” recently, for example. Not bad, but we think you guys can do better.)

And we don’t mean intentionally, when you’re trying to think about baseball stats to prolong your performance. We mean when your mind just wanders¬†– maybe you’re tired or distracted or bored or drunk (or sleeping with someone who’s¬†inept in bed and too drunk to care whether or not you fake). Have you ever thought through a tricky work problem? Composed a Tweet in your head? Wondered what’s going to happen in the next season of Homeland? Planned your outfit? Planned your next meal or workout?¬†Planned your wedding?

Share your not-no-dirty secret here in the comments section… we promise not to tell.

At what point in a relationship is it acceptable to give a gift that is sex-related — a high-end toy, perhaps, or a saucy costume or, say, a beginner’s guide to kink* (to offer a completely random example…)? After you’ve met each other’s parents? After you’ve met each other’s a-holes? After you’ve shared last names? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

* We happen to think that 150 Shades of Play: A Beginner’s Guide to Kink makes a fantastic holiday gift for booty calls, sisters-in-law, husbands and wives, book club friends, open-minded colleagues, anonymous White Elephant Party recipients…

Poll: Is This Shit For Real?

December 3, 2012


We got the following letter of enquiry via our site this past weekend, from a guy claiming to be in a long distance relationship with the love of his life, who’s now trying to crowdfund a trip to see her so he can propose. We’re suckers for a good love story, but we ain’t buying this one. The Indiegogo video is full of cheesy stock photography, syrupy music, an insincere-sounding voice-over, and basically zero personal info. Oh, and the creepy laughing! We think it’s more likely that this is an experiment in what people will fall for than it is a real public plea for supporting tru wuv. ¬†(Apparently, people won’t fall for much, since he hasn’t gotten a dime in the past three days). What do you think? Is this a fraud, or are we just cold-hearted cynics? Is this a scam perpetrated by someone without an editor, or is it just a misguided attempt at crowdfunding by a total cheeseball?


Hi Em & Lo,

I came across your blog and wanted to reach out to you.  After reading much of what you have written I know you can relate to where I am coming from.  I wanted to share my story with you.. I hope you will find it in your heart to pass this along and share it with your readers.

I met my Girlfriend one random night around the Holidays in 2003. There seemed to be an instant connection but neither of us really thought one way or another about it at the time.  Over the next few months we kept in touch and would email each other on occasion to say Hi. The more we talked, we really got to know each other as individuals. Who we are, our personalities, our values, our thoughts, our goals and dreams. We realized that we were so much alike even though we came from completely different backgrounds.

As time went on we grew even closer. ¬†At the time neither of us were searching for a connection with someone in this way, yet we found ourselves being distracted by thoughts of each other at the most random moments. ¬†Every day, everywhere we went, everything we did, we found our minds being filled with thoughts of each other in the sweetest way. ¬†We would catch ourselves smiling a very special smile, that everyone around us noticed, every time we were lost in those thoughts or even at the mere mention of each other’s name.

We were falling in love. Read the rest of this entry »

Are Halloween Couple Costumes Cute or Cloying?

October 9, 2012


Plug and Socket costume on Amazon.com

When you’re in a couple, do you like to coordinate Halloween costumes with your partner? If so, is it something that new couples can do, or should it be saved only until after you’ve farted in front of each other, met each other’s parents, and perhaps even promised eternal love? If you like to match, tell us some of your favorite couple costume ideas, past and present!

Or do matchy-matchy costumes make you want to gag on a spoon?

Or is it a little bit of both… cute and cloying, but totally worth potentially annoying your friends because of the hot role-playing potential in bed later that night…?

Let us know where you stand in the comments section below!

What’s Your Favorite Condom Movie Scene?

September 17, 2012


The way Hollywood portrays it, you’d think nobody ever worried about getting pregnant or contracting an STD. Safer sex is pretty much nonexistent in mainstream movies. But every now and then, a little latex breaks through. Can you think of any? Let’s see if we can compile a list of the condom’s greatest Hollywood moments — leave your nominations in the comments section below.¬†We’ll also accept nominations for scenes involving any kind of birth control or discussion of safer sex!

(We’ll round up our favorites in a post on this site soon!)
