As you may have seen last week, Mona Darling and I have taken over the weekly round-up of sexy links for Kinkly, which is exciting because now we have yet another excuse to look at sex all day and call it work. Not that we needed one.
Here’s what I found while selflessly scouring the Internet for you all.
Epiphora Makes All Other Sex Toy Reviewers Jealous
Some fan wrote the infamously snarky sex toy reviewer, Epiphora, and offered her their $1,300 used Sybian (which is some kind of riding machine that looks like a saddle rack to this farmer’s daughter). Sometimes blogging has its perks. In true Epiphora fashion, she gives it a wonderfully hilarious review, making all of us other sex toy reviewers jealous of her fans.
Bad Sex in Literature Award
I kind of hope to win this one day for a ridiculous love scene I write, but this year the award went to Manil Suri for his novel "The City of Devi". This excerpt proves he deserved the award:
Surely supernovas explode that instant, somewhere, in some galaxy. The hut vanishes, and with it the sea and the sands - only Karun's body, locked with mine, remains. We streak like superheroes past suns and solar systems, we dive through shoals of quarks and atomic nuclei. In celebration of our breakthrough fourth star, statisticians the world over rejoice.
Porn Stars Are Innovative

Ann Pulley Tried Cosmo’s Sex Tips So You Don’t Have To
I’ve always wondered if those tips I read about at the supermarket check-out work. Now I don’t have to wonder anymore. (Hint: They don't. But read the piece. You won't believe the shit this mag's recommending.)
Unfortunately, not all stories about sex are as titillating as the ones above, but they’re still important to know about and read. For that reason, I’m also going to start including some not-so-sexy stories about sexuality as well, to keep us all well-rounded.
Consider this your NPR of sexy. So, here goes ...
Indian Supreme Court Recriminalizes 17.4% of Planet’s LGBT People
On December 11th, India’s Supreme Court voted to reinstate gay sex as a crime. Kate Kendell, Executive Director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, said it well: "We are living in a Dickensian world, the best of times for many LGBT people in great swathes of this nation and some other countries, and the worst of times on far too much of the planet. It is impossible to enjoy our liberty and freedom knowing that so many others suffer. We always knew our work was not done, and today we have another grim reminder."
