For the past eight years, Mad Men has given us a dramatic look at the lives of executive men in the 60s and the decadent filled lives they led. While there are certainly some dynamic female characters, it is the men that undoubtedly get the focus—done on purpose as a way to depict the era. In fact, some women are often treated as trophies for the pleasure of men and these vintage photographs found in a briefcase document a woman put on display for the gaze ... Read More

We recently came across a piece on HuffPost entitled 10 Reasons Women Should Date Men In Their 50s. Basically, it asserts that women everywhere must wait for men to turn the magic five-o before expecting them to be respectful, responsible, and sensitive human beings—a message that's not only offensive to the female sex, but to all good dudes everywhere.
What's more? The subtext of the entire piece speaks to why younger women should date men in their 50s. ... Read More

As Valentine’s Day approaches our minds are filled with all the things that come along with this Hallmark holiday: chocolate, teddy bears, wine, dates, and of course, sex. Not to say that sex isn't on our minds more than one day of the year but it is particularly present around this time, and obviously gets us thinking about the one thing we all long for...orgasms.
Here at BUST we've already discussed how movies and porn give us some unrealistic ... Read More

With the imminent release of Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as the return of naked-lady-centric Game of Thrones, it seems that Hollywood is in no rush to diversify its representations of women experiencing the big O onscreen. We all know the look- just picture the infamous When Harry Met Sally scene to refresh- mouth dropped open in euphoria, back arched, eyes closed with nary a weird twitch or unbecoming grimace in sight. Call me crazy, or perhaps someone ... Read More

Ask anybody (maybe not anybody) how much sex they’re having on the regs and you’ll get a range of answers—from, “all day, every day” to “3-4 times a week” to “I’m your mailperson, please don’t ask me that.” And all you can really do is trust their word; no statistic can be rubbed under their nose proving them lying sex-deprived losers.
A recent Google search study by Seth ... Read More

Facts! According to a new study detailed in the Atlantic, "mommy brain" is a real thing (which anyone who has ever grown an entire human being in their body already knows). The very real change comes from an increase in a mother’s flow of hormones, which are necessary to build the bond needed between a new mom and her baby.
These changes in brain activity are the reason that some not-especially child-crazy ladies are able to find motherhood rewarding. We ... Read More

Weed-oil Lube is the Next Big Thing to Put in Your Vagina
If you like smoking weed and you like having sex, there’s a good chance you also like having sex while stoned. After all, it heightens sensation, makes you focus, and gives you that underwater-y, I’m-in-a-D’Angelo-video feeling. That’s why Foria—the new lube containing active cannabis oil—seemed like the knocking-boots equivalent of winning The Price Is Right’s ... Read More

The experience of purchasing condoms has long been geared toward men—just take a stroll down any pharmacy aisle and check out the garish boxes and butch brand names, like Trojan. But as more women take control of their sexual health and well-being, condoms are beginning to offer more than just different latex flavors. Enter the new crop of condom companies run by women. Talia Frenkel, a photojournalist, started L. Condoms (thisisl.com) after working for the ... Read More
In 2012, educator Al Vernacchio gave a TED talk about everyone’s favorite things: pizza and sex. He was concerned with the fact that sex has too often been associated with baseball. Personally, I love this new pizza metaphor for sex. Whenever I heard the baseball/sex metaphor it was usually a man talking and I mean come on! It’s such a sexist way to describe sex. Plus I never liked baseball, so I’m a little biased.
Vernacchio shares ... Read More
