Bathroom Sex-chosis

Can a non-American weight in on the madness of the seemingly endless witch hunt of transgender people via the bloody toilets? Is it not true that we sometimes refer to them as restrooms? So give it a rest! Here is the simple truth about public bathrooms. Sometimes they are clean and many more times they are dirtier than we would choose to have them. Sometimes they are safe and other times their private... read more

Why May is the Happiest Month

If you’ve been moving in the right circles, you may have heard that May is International Masturbation Month. The right circles, in this case, would be among really sex-positive folks. The more modest version of this self-service establishment would be (Inter-)National Masturbation Day, but let’s be honest – once a year is a bit measly. This got me thinking… who were the committee... read more

Vibrator Goes Beyond the Call of Duty

We ‘re all for taking that mirror and studying our girlie parts. It’s ours for the knowledge, and nothing new (bless you, Betty Dodson). And then came the Svakom. Sounds like something you’d pick up from Ikea but it’s actually straight out of China. This new idea in vibrators adds a camera into your insertible vibrator for the purpose of…. actually I have no idea. While I... read more

Female Sexual Dysfunction in 200 Words

If it’s true that 43% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction, then we have a huge problem and apparently no solution. However,  if this statistic was misleadingly achieved in a single study from 1999, and is constantly rehashed so that we can pathologise our normal sexual responses, then that’s a whole other story. A recent movement called Even the Score has been espousing the notion that we... read more

Ebola Just Got Sexy

Who knew that the latest sexually transmitted disease to join the list would be Ebola?! Oh, so now you wanna hear more…! Let’s get some perspective. The current outbreak of Ebola has to date infected some 6,500 people in West Africa. Of these people, just over 3,00o children, women and men have died. A staggering 25%-90% of those infected will be dead within weeks, depending on where it is... read more

HPV on my WHAT?

Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine are having a bit too much fun with their research grants. They have been supplying participants in their study with not one but TWO vibrators, all in the name of science, of course. In a bold study, from the university that brought us Kinsey, we have been shown that sex toys can carry HPV  (human papillomavirus). Interestingly, the virus is still... read more

Hard Words, Soft Libidos

Magic pills for sex…. people have been shoving foods, beverages and non-Spanish beetles down our throats for centuries, in the hopes that something would work. Enter colossal irony: it is now uninformed women’s organizations in the US that are trying to do just that. As they point out, there are 24 drugs approved for male sexual dysfunction – from viagra to testosterone replacement... read more

Being a Woman in 2014: Revolution Needed

The woman’s movement seems to have made strides, until we look beyond the top layers. Take a look at the Concern Worldwide’s Woman’s Day campaign: Women Do 66% of the world’s work Earn 10% of the income Own 1% of the property And I would like to add: Have way less than 50% of the orgasms…. Just so that we have another worthy equality... read more

Like It Luge at the Olympics

Cold as it is in Sochi, the inevitable sport of watching beautiful bodies do amazing things, is underway, but in a way its hotter than ever. The irony of Russia’s anti-gay tirade and what is actually going down during these Olympics is simply sweet. Let’s just skip right to the men’s luge doubles.  So who would really want to do this sport?  Try google “luge doubles” and up comes... read more

Recycling 2.0: Disposal of Old Sex Toys

Recycling means the world to us, so who is going to decide whether vibrators get disposed of in the electronics bin or lovingly buried like old lovers, missed but laughed about. I dream of a time when sex toys will be made from sustainable materials with solar charging, that we will be able to consume them like organic cherries, conscience- and GMO-free. But we green eroticists need to think twice about... read more

Practice Makes Perfect (Sex)

Some couples do more rehearsals on the wedding ceremony than on the consummation of the wedding. It may make their parents proud, their religious authorities boast. But no-one but the virgin brides and (perhaps) grooms get to lie in the bed that they made. And sometimes that bed is less sexy than it might have been with a bit more preparation. Bravo, Dr Raj Brahmbhatt. It can’t be easy to say that... read more

60 and Still Sexy

Say the number 69 and anyone with a sexy mind will smirk. But 60, for some outdated reason, reeks of just plain old. Well, it shouldn’t and the most erotic 60 year old that I know is now proof of that. This week is 60 years since the Kinsey Report on Female Sexuality was born. She followed a difficult and ill-received pregnancy, but ever since the birth of her brother, the Kinsey Report on Male... read more
