Stylish Sex Toy Storage

We all have our sex toy storage needs. Some of us just need a discreet place to hide that one little play thing. Then, there are those of us who need a dedicated storage box to conveniently stash our stash. What if you want a piece of furniture to display your massive collection?

Social TMI Goes to New Heights (or Depths)

For those of you who don’t think posting stats of your workout routine on social media isn’t quite enough TMI, the makers of FitBit have recently released the BootyBit. Now you can let your friends, family, boss, coworkers, and your stalker ex know every time you’ve had sex or earned a sexual accomplishment badge. While the manufacturer is still working out some “inappropriate” bugs in the app (“I stopped using mine after it called my husband a ‘freaky bitch’,” one user says.), some of the Beta users are gushing about it with praise. “Finding out I can squirt would have been exciting enough on its own,” another tester says. “But being able to share the ‘Gusher’ badge on Facebook made it even better.” Well, at least some people don’t think it’s inappropriate to let everyone know that they soaked the sheets.

What Makes Sex Better: Quality or Quantity?

Say what? Having more sex won’t make you happier? Those are the findings at the Carnegie Mellon Institute. The study found that the increase in frequency of sex caused a reduction in couples’ pleasure and that desire was also lower than at the beginning of the three-month study. But don’t fret. The investigative team found that half the time the couples were only initiating sex because they had been told to do so and not because they necessarily wanted to do so. Tamar Krishnamurti, a member of the research team, thinks that their research could help couples come to a better understanding about sex. She concluded: “Instead of focusing on increasing sexual frequency to the levels they experienced at the beginning of a relationship, couples may want to work on creating an environment that sparks their desire and makes the sex that they do have even more fun.”

Girl-on-Girl Hate

It should come as no surprise that the worst offenders of slut shaming are women. But why? Why would another woman cut down another woman, let alone act more like a girl than a grown adult? The Fornicating Feminist at Slutty Girl Problems takes a look at some of the reasons behind this problem, especially when it comes around to who is sleeping with whom. William Quincy Belle also tackles this phenomenon, not so much on a sexual activity level, but on female body image and self-image levels, and rounded up quite a few offenders in his blog.
