Comment of the Week: Communicate or Cut Him Loose!

October 1, 2014

This week, ¬†our favorite comment came from TK in response to the “Your Call: The Relationship Is Great, the Sex Not So Much.” We love it when our readers deliver tough love so eloquently!:

Most people who write in to advice columnists “know” the answer already. You may love this guy to bits, but please wake up: you DON’T have a healthy relationship. People treat us the way we allow them to. You set the stage for your dissatisfaction when you went for en entire year without making your sexual needs known. And when you had the “awkward conversation” (see: “this relationship is not healthy” comment above) he made half-hearted attempts to please you. I think you answered your own question with the “he isn’t even trying” comment. You two either need to get real comfortable communicating with each other (which is going to take a lot more awkward conversations before it gets better) or you need to realize now that you’re incompatible. If he really is going to “give up altogether” if you keep asking for your needs to be met, he’s not relationship material, despite how much you think you love him.

Wise Guys: Which Is Better, Oral or Intercourse?

July 15, 2014

0 Comments

Advice from three of our guy friends. This week they answer the following: “If guys had to choose between only intercourse or only blowjobs for the rest of their life, which do you think most guys would choose?”

Straight Single Guy (L.A. Chris): I think most guys would choose blowjobs, but they really should be choosing intercourse. BJs are the best thing to happen to sex since sliced bread, but with added perks (let’s just say it’s like taking your car in for an oil change and getting a free car wash). Most men don’t get as many blowjobs in their daily routine as they’d like, so the prospect of guaranteed hummers for life is a dream come true. But it’s a devil’s bargain. Blowjobs are awesome, but they’re unsubstantial — mere icing on the cake. And a man can’t feel truly satisfied on a diet of sugar frosting alone. At some point he’s going to want to connect meaningfully with his partner. And by the time he gets to be 30 or 40 he may even want to have a baby. (Yes, men have biological clocks too. Ours are not as prominent as women’s, they’re more like pocket watches, but we have them.)

Straight Married Guy (Fred): I think most guys would struggle with this one, but then decide that intercourse would be the better choice. There are more variations of intercourse, for one thing.¬† There’s more skin contact which is always nice. Giving her pleasure at the same time is a big turn on.¬† The fact that intercourse is active rather than passive makes it a more likely choice for guys.¬† We like to do stuff… like aggressive pelvic thrusting.

Top 15 Worst “Sexy” Halloween Costumes

October 20, 2013

0 Comments

We recently published a top 10 list — only slightly tongue in cheek — of “sexy” Halloween costume ideas for men, in an attempt to balance out the playing field this October 31st. To highlight exactly why the world needs more¬†Sexy John Boehner Crying and Sexy Walter White, here is a top 15 list of the worst “sexy” Halloween costumes for women. All of these costumes actually exist.

 

 

1. Sexy Deer

What’s sexier: Deer in headlights facing down an S.U.V. on the highway, or petrified deer about to be shot down by a hunter? Road kill is sooo hot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Sexy Nemo

Come on, seriously? You’re Nemo?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Sexy Skunk

The worst part about skunk sex? The post-coital tomato sauce bath.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Sexy Chinese Takeout

Mmmm, don’t you just love the smell of leftover Chinese takeout in the morning?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Sexy Waldo

We guess you could have fun with a “Where’s Waldo’s penis” treasure hunt…?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Sexy Good Sandy

Really? You couldn’t just go as Bad Sandy?
It’s kind of like going as Sexy Hannah Montana.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Sexy Clown

Way to scare all of us, not just the children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Sexy Mime

Ha ha ha ha ha. What? Sorry, we  have no words.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9. Sexy Elmo

Hasn’t poor Elmo been through enough sexual trauma already?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10. Sexy R2D2

It’s just not fair to raise a poor nerd’s hopes like that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11. Sexy Sock Monkey

It’s like you’re actually trying to make some pedophile’s day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12. Sexy Crayon

If you’re so determined to be sexy that you’re going to sex up a Crayola¬†costume, why would you stick a miniature traffic cone on your head? We just don’t get it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

13. Sexy Keg

Tap this keg, geddit? It’s like a date rape costume!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14. Sexy Garfield

We never thought we’d say this, but there’s a fine line between looking like Garfield the cat and looking like a Hooters waitress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15. Sexy Bacon

Okay, now you’re just f*&#ing with us, right?

Last Chance to Get Mom a Truly Unique Mother’s Day Present!

May 8, 2013

0 Comments

Lelo’s Etherea Silk Cuffs

This week is your last chance to get something for Mother’s Day. Sure, you could do flowers…again. Or you could get her something she’ll¬†really¬†enjoy: our award-winnging book,¬†150 SHADES OF PLAY: A Beginner’s Guide to Kink!

ORDER FROM AMAZON WITH TWO-DAY DELIVERY (OR PRIME) BY THUR AFTERNOON — OR ONE-DAY DELIVERY BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON — TO GET IT BY SATURDAY!

Here us out: Mom’s loved the¬†Twilight¬†series, but secretly wished there was more sex in it. Along comes the¬†Fifty Shades¬†series, which is essentially¬†Twilight¬†fan faction, and there’s tons of sex….kinky¬†sex. Moms across the country go gaga for it, so much so that it’s dubbed “mommy porn.”

There are just a few problems:

  • Fifty Shades¬†doesn’t tell moms how to incorporate any of this stuff into their own lives
  • it doesn’t mention specific quality products or where to get them
  • it perpetuates myths about kink
  • it even promotes some very dubious (i.e. unsafe) behaviors and techniques

A mom friend of ours recently wrote us, saying she’s been married for a¬†loooooong¬†time and needs some new ideas, asking which book of ours we would recommend. We told her¬†150 SHADES OF PLAY: while it does cover some intense kinky stuff, it also covers the basics; it’s not visually graphic; it has a great sense of humor, which makes it fun and non-intimidating to skim with a husband or partner; it gives readers a vouyeristic look into how extreme some people can get with BDSM which might make them feel more comfortable and confident to try new,¬†mildly¬†kinky things. Because let’s face it: a little toy or light bondage is nothing compared to pony play!

Plus, it just won a 2013 Ippy Award!

So when making the mom in your life a Mother’s Day care package this coming May, remember: flowers are nice, but floggers are nicer.

Ancient Pompeii Graffiti Reveals Potty Mouths, Penis Jokes

August 9, 2012

0 Comments

A friend just emailed us a link to this collection of awesome (and dirty!) graffiti from Pompeii. We know it seems like it couldn’t possibly be real, but Pompeiana.org seems like a legitimate academic site. (They describe themselves as “an online resource for all things Pompeian… a place for original research by scholars in the fields of art, archaeology, architecture and classics.” And the site is packed with stuffy academic papers — seems like an awful lot of work to go to for a prank.) And besides, Pompeii is known for its phallic and erotic artifacts (and, we suppose now, its poop jokes).

Back in the ancient world, graffiti was actually taken pretty seriously as a form of writing — people would respond to each other’s witticisms, write poetry, draw pictures, etc. And, occasionally, brag about conquests or pine for loved ones or just note that they’d been by. That is, until Mount Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79 and buried their city under 36 hours’ worth of ashes and stone. But as architects continue to excavate this lost city, more and more graffiti is being uncovered.

Below are some of our favorites, translated from the original Latin of course. We love that the compliments (“Sollemnes, you screw well!”)¬†are as enthusiastic as the insults (“Phileros is a eunuch!”). A bit of graffiti like the following would vastly improve our public bathroom experiences…

Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!

Amplicatus, I know that Icarus is buggering you. Salvius wrote this.

I screwed the barmaid.

Floronius, privileged soldier of the 7th legion, was here. The women did not know of his presence. Only six women came to know, too few for such a stallion.
