I’m no stranger to smut. Like many girls, my earliest sex-ed experience was thumbing through my mom’s Jude Deveraux novels, trying to decipher all the euphemisms in the sex scenes. I’m not personally one who, ahem, needs a lot of back story when it comes to this sort of thing — I prefer the short-form stuff (like BUST’s One Handed Reads!). But I’ve always respected the genre. I’ve always assumed that erotica is like poetry or horror movies — particularly tough to get right, but the good stuff must be transcendent. Read More

Last week, a woman with a Kindle sat next to me on the subway on my way to work. Because I am nosy, and because I had just been wishing I had a Kindle, I glanced to my right to admire her light, easy-to-read device. Instead, I immediately caught a glimpse of a rampant sex scene (she was clearly using the largest text setting and leaning forward, in my defense). What was I to do, except continue reading over her shoulder? For the next 10 minutes, I enthusiastically read along with my train companion about the exploits of Jay and Ashlee. Read More

If you happen to be on a birth control pill manufactured by Pfizer, Inc., you should 1) probably pick up a pregnancy test after work, 2) also a box of condoms, 3) send Pfizer a bill for it, and 4) try not to cry. The manufacturer just voluntarily recalled one million packages of Lo/Ovral-28, Norgestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol after they noticed a “packaging error.” The packets should consist of three weeks of active pills and one week of sugar pills; but the last million might have contained incorrect amounts of each type of pill or are, in some cases, out of sequence.

I sincerely want to bro down with this guy. He seems to genuinely appreciate the details. He doesn't make the typical "haul" video: each scent comes with a childhood memory or imagined scenario described in vivid detail. I feel like if we were buds, he'd notice when I got a haircut or new perfume and he'd definitely comment on it. He'd be down to keep me company at the laundromat even though that's such a waste of a day off. Read More

Last Thursday night I stopped by the Soho branch of Toys in Babeland to help my friend Kiki do some holiday shopping, and to mostly lust after the Hitachi Magic Wand. I’m in love. Anyway, while I was browsing, I started talking to a curvy blond girl who worked there, and she gave me the deets for a Babeland event that same night--Kandi from the Real Housewives of Atlanta would be promoting her new line of sex toys with free champagne. She had me at "free champagne. Read More

Honestly, I don’t know what People Magazine is smoking. Sure Bradley Cooper can speak French, big whoop. And yeah, he isn’t completely unattractive; I mean his face is pretty symmetrical. But has anyone over there ever heard of a certain someone named RYAN GOSLING?!?! Sure, they named him a runner-up and have the teeny tiniest photo of him on the cover, but I mean 2011 was his year of sexiness.
Let’s review, shall we.
Some men play superheroes on the big screen, but this summer Ryan Gosling was a real hero breaking up a street fight in NYC. Read More
There are definitely some misconceptions when it comes to the idea of librarians, especially male ones, so the idea of a sexy librarian calendar totally tickles my fancy. The world might not know it, but there are a million different kinds of men working in libraries these days and the Men of the Stacks project is set up to show just that. They hope to change the stuffy connotation the media tends to perpetuate and showcase a sexier side to the men behind the stacks. Who are these guys exactly?
"We are, of course, professionals. Read More

I wrote about Brooklyn's Bushwick Burlesque earlier this month, but their show is so nice that I've got to tell you twice.
If you stopped by Sunday's BUST Craftacular at the NY World Maker Faire, you may have created some DIY Bath Bombs or a journal; your instructor for those crafty courses was none other than the bootylicious "bikelesque" babe Miss Spoke.
