Porn performers have been advocating against proposed regulations that would require they wear condoms while filming. Lorelei Lee responds to the New York Times' biased coverage of the story. Dear New York Times,My name is Lorelei Lee and I’m an adult film performer who has worked in the industry for fifteen years. I read your article, “Actors in Pornographic Films Fight Proposal to Enforce Safety Regulations,” and I am writing to say: how dare you.Nearly 100 of my fellow performers and I took an unpaid day off from...
Key by Jopen Comet II Size: banana wearing a ping-pong ball as a hat Shape: the phone part of a rotary phone Sound: so quiet!! Strength: unghh yes Satisfaction: yep Pairs with: ski shots I’ve been skiing for a long time, but I don’t really know how to ski, and I’ve been masturbating for a long time (though not as long as I’ve been skiing ;) ) but I’m not sure I know how to use the Comet II. It’s a G-spot vibe, so I assume...

The GoodVibes Pleasurette Size: It is the mini, you know. Length: 4” Girth: Probably gets mistaken for a butt toy. Shape: It looks like a rocket. A rocket that can fit in your pocket. Sound: bz. Bzz. BZZ. Strength: Small but mighty. Satisfaction: I’m feeling disgruntled. The Pleasurette is mini, it’s waterproof, and to me, it’s rather disappointing.  I gathered myself and prepared for vibrator reviewing, a very studious act indeed. Once I was feeling settled, I began with the first examination: roommate-proofing. I cycled through...

When you hear “Silicon Valley,” you may not think of silicone vibrators. But as technology marches forward, sex toy companies are often the first brands to position themselves at the cutting edge of innovation. Here are five devices to test out if you’re looking to become an early adopter—for science, of course. Womanizer $199.99, lovehoney.com Though this one’s name makes us squirm a bit (and not in a good way), the Womanizer’s patented “PleasureAir technology” and unique design certainly bring something different to the...
The Crave Vesper Size: golf pencil Shape: that pen that Joan from Mad Men wears around her neck/between her boobs Sound: Katniss Everdeen’s arrow Strength: va-va voom Satisfaction: gaspin’ O Pairs with: a vesper, Bond-style, duh I was really, really excited about the Vesper when I saw it online, because it’s also a necklace, which seems so SEXY and DANGEROUS and SOPHISTICATED to me (so I can wear it over my pajamas as I drink Franzia Crisp White from a plastic camping mug, alone). When I...
WeVibe Fling Size: a chunky bracelet from Claire’sShape: a letter “C” that’s been sat on Sound: low whirring Strength: tingly Satisfaction: who knows? Pairs with: a bottle of red wine consumed via those curly straw glasses My boyfriend is awesome and long-suffering. I mean that in general, because dating me can be kind of like trying to dress a cat in American Girl Doll clothes, but I mean it particularly when it comes to these vibrator reviews. Over the last several weeks there’s been a...
If you are single, dating, or at all textually active with a man, chances are at some point you will receive the dreaded dick pic. If you are like me, these can be a bit alarming and off-putting. Luckily for all of the receivers of shlong selfies, New York-based photographer Soraya Doolbaz is here to help.Dooblaz started the Dicture Gallery, a project in which she creates penis personas and captures them. “I could create a personality with penises,” Dooblaz told the New York Post. These cock shots...

The Womanizer Size: 90s cell phoneShape: chubby otoscopeSound: dentist drillStrength: exactly enoughSatisfaction: oh my godPairs with: an enormous margaritaThere are lots of things about this vibe that made me giggle, from its name to its cheetah print handle to its big rhinestone button. If it could talk, my Womanizer would sound like a Long Island trophy wife. It comes in a pink zip-up case and looks like that thing a doctor sticks in your ear so they can see how much wax build-up you have (which...

This post by Shaikina Nayfack originally appeared on brokeassstuart.com Last year was a hectic one, recovering from gender confirmation surgery (while writing a show about it), running a theatre company, getting on the scene as a trans actress... So much of my energy was spent working on and talking about becoming a woman in the world that I spent very little time actually being one. Year one is over, and I’m ready to get out there and take my new self for a spin.Dating pre-op was...
