What Should Everyone Try In Bed At Least Once?

November 8, 2011

1 Comment

We’re working on a magazine article about things that every woman should try in bed at least once — your sexual bucket list, if you will. Have any of you tried any of the following things in bed? If so, will you write to us and tell us about it? Even just a sentence or two? We’re happy to keep you anonymous if you prefer. Bonus points if you’re British, as this is for a British magazine! We’re looking for stories about:

  • Have you ever role-played in bed? Have you ever done it in costume? Have you ever been inspired by Halloween costumes and let that carry over into a little saucy role-playing?
  • Have you dabbled in a little domination and submission? You know, playing slove, a bit of light bondage, bossing each other around in bed…?
  • Ladies, have you ever consciously had sex like a guy? You can interpret this question however you see fit!
  • Have you ever decided to forget about your (and your partner’s) orgasm for a night? You know, just focusing on how things feel without worrying about the destination?
  • Have you ever decided to turn up the volume in bed? We’re normally against letting porn dictate the way you have sex, but sometimes, making a lot of noise in bed (and shouting out really naughty things) can make the sex feel oh so dirty, in a good way. Know what we’re talking about?

If any of the above sounds like sex you’ve had — or sex you’d like to have — let us know! You can reach us using our contact form on the site here. Just be sure to let us know (a) a first name we can use for you and (b) your age. And please include an email address so we can reach you for follow-up. Thanks a million!

Occasionally on this site, we ask you guys an impertinent question and you can share your answer in the comments section below. Feel free to share your age, gender, relationship status, sexuality, etc., if you feel that it’s relevant to the answer. This week’s burning (in a good way) question:

When in a relationship do you start to leave the bathroom door open — after the first sleepover? First sex? First anal sex? After you’ve met the parents? Never? (And yes, we know it depends on what’s happening in said bathroom… feel free to make a distinction in your answers!)

Occasionally on this site, we ask you guys an impertinent question and you can share your answer in the comments section below. Feel free to share your age, gender, relationship status, sexuality, etc., if you feel that it’s relevant to the answer. This week’s burning (in a good way) question:

How do you define sex? (Intercourse only? Do you include oral? Anything that ends in an orgasm? Anything past third base?)



Poll: Who’s the Sexiest Republican Candidate?

September 22, 2011

3 Comments

We’re focusing on just the male candidates here, so even if you’re a straight dude, you can still pick who you think has the most sex appeal and it won’t make you gay. We almost included the option “How can you put “Republican” and “sexy” in the same sentence?” but figured you’d all vote for it, so we wanted to force the issue:

Hey, hey, it’s a brand new feature on our site! Occasionally, we’ll ask you guys an impertinent question, and you can share your answer in the comments section below. Feel free to share your age, gender, relationship status, sexuality, etc., if you feel that it’s relevant to the answer. So, this week’s question:

How long should intercourse last for, ideally? Forget foreplay, forget oral, forget all the other stuff that makes sex sex — we just want to know what your personal preference is for the old in-out.

(“None” is a perfectly acceptable answer, by the way!) Oh, and please do explain your answer, list exceptions, blah blah blah.

Okay… dish!



Poll: “The Prom” vs “Prom”

May 19, 2011

8 Comments

It being that time of year, we wanted to get a definitive answer on the eternal question: Does one go to “the prom” (as Time magazine suggests in their “Brief History of the Prom”) or just “prom” (a la Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink: “What about prom, Blaine?”).

Tell Us Your Awkward Sex Story, Win a We-Vibe!

April 13, 2011

2 Comments

We’re writing an article about recovering from awkward sex and would love to quote you!

  • Did you or your partner do something mortifying in bed that you had to get over the next time you were between the sheets?
  • Did your or your partner’s equipment once fail to work (or work too well, i.e. too quickly)?
  • How about having sex for the first time after forgiving a partner’s transgression?
  • Did you ever have such a long dry spell that finally having sex again became an issue? Or did you wait so long to cash in your V card that it became a much bigger deal than it needed to be?
  • Did someone accidentally (or “accidentally”) go through the “backdoor” when it was locked?

You get the picture — we’re looking for any and every kind of awkward moment that made the subsequent sex just as awkward or even more so! And we want to know how you recovered (i.e. made the subsequent sex just fine) or how you didn’t (i.e. the subsequent sex sucked). We love the funny stuff, but it’s got to be something that really affected you and/or your partner. Please write to us by this Thursday, April 14th, via our contact form* and you’ll be automatically entered to win an awesome We-Vibe II from Eden Fantasys — the kind of cool, sleek, effective toy that makes partner play anything but awkward!

*Select “Interview Me for Your Article” from the pull-down menu and be sure to include your email address so we can contact you if you win. As always, requested anonymity will be honored.
