Sex

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. Until now! A recent Google search study by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, a former data scientist at Google and PhD economist, wrote an op-ed in the NY Times...
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 showcase showdown. I got a five-milliliter spray bottle, which is supposed to contain five doses and costs $24, and...
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 Red Cross and seeing women suffering from the consequences of...

It’s only good vibrations from here on out.  There’s a new bedroom accessory coming (pun intended) and it’s in pursuit of pleasure equality.   DAME Products, the Brooklyn-based sexual health startup has made “the first hands-free, strap-free, non-intrusive couple’s vibrator” that closes the pleasure gap. EVA has flexible wings that can retract when pressure is put on them, and that makes EVA discreet and versatile. It might be TMI, but the device works because EVA tucks under the labia majora (because we know you were wondering).   On top of...
Last week, the winner of the most important accolade in the literary world was announced. I am, of course, talking about the Literary Review's Bad Sex in Fiction Award. Forget the National Book Award. Back off, Pulitzer. Man Booker who? An Oprah’s Book Club Sticker has more influence than all those combined. The real prestige comes with winning a Bad Sex in Fiction award. It means your work was good enough that those other prizes could ignore your terrible sex writing (can we retire the word...

On last night's episode of "Sex in the Wild," a 4-part PBS series that investigates the sex lives, mating behaviors, and reproductive systems of a variety of animals, the subject was marsupials. That's right: we learned all about Kangaroo vaginas, Koala penii, and the 4-headed Echidna penis. But first, a warning: This post (and the show itself) is NSFW: Not Safe for Wussies. If you are easily skeeved out by nature, you might want to move on. Led by intrepid anatomy scientist Dr. Joy S. Reidenberg--whose infectious...

Recently, I came out as bisexual (surprise, Mom!) and was met with entirely positive reactions from everyone I told. However, before coming out I was terrified of telling people. I've heard bisexuals being totally discounted, and with rampant bi erasure and biphobia in media, spewed by people I know online and in real life, it's no wonder I was freaked. So, here's a list of myths that are as false as can be regarding bisexuality and pansexuality. Let's learn about the B in LGBTQIAP+! 1. Myth: Bisexuality...
