Sex

  In Sweden, it soon might be. It was a nice summer day on a Stockholm beach when an unfortunate gentleman, aged 65, got caught getting busy in the sand. Södertörn’s district court acquitted the man of sexual assault because he wasn’t masturbating to anyone in particular. Prosecutor Olof Vrethammar found the ruling fair and does not plan to appeal.    No longer a form of assault in Sweden, public masturbation may still fall under the “disorderly conduct” umbrella, but only time will tell. TIME explains, “the ruling...

Last week, a couple of us BUST bloggers attended the premiere of Kat George’s new web series, The Big Gulp, at Williamsburg's Nitehawk Cinema. The first episode was about seven minutes long, but those seven minutes were really something to be experienced.  The series centers on a group of young friends living in the city, and the first ep (entitled “Winter is Coming”) focused on the issue of "to swallow or not to swallow." The webisode handled this subject with surprising honesty and...

    David Gandy for Dolce & Gabbana   The fight against unrealistic body expectations spawned from airbrushed models on billboards has been going strong for years. The “Dove Real Beauty” campaign showcases women of all shapes, colors, and sizes in their underwear, proving that real beauty comes in all forms. Yet as far as it goes, men haven’t been given the same real life role models. Instead, they’ve been blasted with campaigns like David Beckham for H&M, advertising the pro-athlete’s impossibly muscular body more than the underwear he’s...
Science, that all-knowing amorphous body of research and truth, is revealing more and more about the neurophysiological causes of spontaneous orgasm, specifically in women. In a recent analysis of this phenomenon, The New York Times science reporter William J. Broad investigates a Rutgers University project where female brains were scanned while thinking about erotic fantasies.  Broad recognizes that this isn’t a new idea: sexologist Havelock Ellis talks about spontaneous orgasm in his turn-of-the-century studies, and Kinsey Institute namesake Alfred C. Kinsey wrote about it in the 1940s and ‘50s. (William...
  To some, birth control pills and condoms are no longer the gateways to women’s liberation that they were in they days of Margaret Sanger and her colleagues. New York Magazine’s Ann Friedman recently wrote a piece entitled “No Pill? No Prob. Meet the Pullout Generation” in which she discusses the possible benefits of "pulling out," especially for women.    My response to this idea was something along the lines of “What?!” From the stories I’ve heard, it seems that pulling out is far from liberating: we are...
Ferrett Steinmetz and Daughter   At a recent panel following a screening of the new Amanda Seyfried film Lovelace, Gloria Steinem spoke out against excessive parental control over young women’s intimate lives: “I have always, always said that children must be allowed to disobey.” For weeks, I turned this comment over in my head. How does what we learn from our parents during our young adult years effect our ideas on gender and sexuality? Our romantic behavior? Our sense of worth?   This week, a debate on this very...

Thinking of taking a class in art? Spanish? Astrophysics? Not when there's a space available at the School for Undressing! Unfortunately, the school closed quite some time ago. It opened in 1937, charging 30 hard-earned dollars (worth a whopping $497 today!) for six lessons to learn how to "undress" for your husband. Imagine spending $497 to pick-up an act "tee many martoonies" would have you doing anyway! Now I know you're wondering "How can I ever learn to strip properly if the school no longer exists?" Well don't...

* NOT SAFE FOR WORK * Remember Truth or Dare?  Covertly huddled together in the corners of dingy school hallways, sitting at the back ends of buses, crouched in the basements of our childhood homes – we played the eponymous game in our awkward, fumbling youth. I recall one particular question during Truth that was frequently asked in rather hushed, thrilled tones: Have you ever masturbated? The boys would smile knowingly, admitting to their pleasure bombastically, sometimes even high-fiving. The girls would cast their eyes away, shaking their heads violently....

Did you know that the average Porn Star penis is 6-9 inches while...

Don't be a weiner! Here are some rules about how to send hot texts to your lady friend without disrespecting her or making your wang look wack. 1. Flatter her. A text that says, "I can't stop thinking about your _____" is always welcome. (That is, if you've spent intimate time together. If you haven't, then don't send this.) It can be anything: your butt, your neck, your kisses, your apartment, your dog, anything at all. Just make sure you spell it correctly. It's your, not...
