Some well-meaning but uptight folks over at change.org started a petition to ban the use of Flibanserin as a female sexual enhancement drug, stating that a low sex drive in women is not a disease. So, does the fact that there's a male sexual enhancement drug on the market mean that low sex drive in men is a disease? Or is their thinking that since Viagara works on bloodflow, whereas Flibanserin stimulates serotonin production, it's only a matter of time before this treatment modality puts women in the mental health ghetto? C'mon. Read More

It’s okay for women to have sex as long as they don’t enjoy it or actually desire it. That’s so fifty years ago, right? Wrong.
Claudia Bellocq, in her blog, Claudia Bites! writes about being called a slut. Awful from a man, but worse still from woman to woman. Teenage girls do it all the time. When our hormones are raging, when we’re just becoming a sexual being, it's the thing we fling at another girl to hurt her, take her down a notch, ruin her reputation. Read More

The Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit has been causing a legit uproar in Egypt. What's in the phony purity pack? Why, a diaphragm that trickles a blood-like liquid, of course! And it's all in an effort to trick new hubbies into thinking their brides are carrying a V-card.
The kit is seen as a tool of empowerment to some, but Egyptian conservatives believe it promotes promiscuity and ultimately threatens Islam. Read More

The UK's Daily Mail is quickly becoming my favorite news source, mostly for the sheer hilarity of the surveys they deem ''newsworthy''. Case in point: Today's tabloid-like poll comes from a survey of 15,000 women who were asked to rate men from varying nations on their bedroom abilities.
Germans and Englishmen topped the worst list, titles given due to bad body odor and lazy lovemaking, respectively. Not too far behind are American men, who rank 5th because they are ''too rough'' and ''too dominating'' between the sheets. Read More

In yet another sexist survey, researchers ''found'' that the average woman has slept with eight men, and has been under the influence when partnering up with at least five. A slew of articles have already begun popping up on news websites, most claiming that women need alcohol to feel confident during sex. Okay, sure, alcohol does smooth things over a bit, but come on now: surely women aren't wetting their whistles alone. It takes two, baby. Read More
