We could all use some distraction right now. This week's Sex Stories We Love offers up some options to take your mind off what is happening all around us.

Take a Quiz!

Who doesn't love some online quiz action, amirite? Okay, we all know these things can be a little suspect. Whether you're trying to find out something about your sexual personality, what you do or do not know about sex ed, or which Sex Education character you might be, the point of these little distractions are meant to be fun. Might you learn something? Sure. Really, the best thing you can look for is to hopefully have a giggle or two.

Music to Fuck To

Another option of escape is to look into your music collection and shake and shimmy, either vertically or horizontally. Music has an undeniable ability to send our brains, our bodies, our hearts, and our sexual imaginations into totally different places. Our bodies react to music in the most primal ways. Do you have a favourite sexy song? Is there one tune that always gets your body movin', groovin', and lovin'? This is a great list of sex-a-delic songs, but we can always add more. Tell us your faves! I'll get the ball rolling with one that isn't mentioned!

I Mean...Maleficent, Anyone?

I think I know my audience pretty well, so saying something like "get distracted with porn" is a bit like suggesting you drink water and eat food. That said, here's hoping you're supporting performers, creators, and sex workers by paying for your porn! However, let's recognize a simple truth: unless you have an unlimited porn budget, it is possible to get a little work out viewing the same content from the same creators. Sure, they're awesome and we love them, but a little variety can always help now and again. So instead of saying "check out porn" how about we explore different types of porn we've never tried before. Like, maybe, animated porn! If you're not sure where to start, Emma Austin has done some...valuable research.

Exploring the Bed

One of my personal, favourite distractions that involves sex (okay...almost all of my distractions involve sex, except playing the ukelele poorly) is exploring the different ways photographers capture our wide world of sex. There are countless themes that can be explored when sex is the primary theme of a sexual photo project. So, I was pretty excited to find Jonnah Bron's project Where we did it—a collection of images of the beds she's had sex in. The bed is the main place most people have sex, but to see different beds, in different rooms, in different states is a remarkable glimpse into one person's life, sexual and otherwise.

Modern Whore Media

Without a doubt, your different streaming services are surely getting a little low on new content. Just how many series have you binge-watched at this point? One of the cultural casualties of the pandemic was the cancellation of the SXSW Festival, including its offering of short films. Fortunately, these amazing shorts have been offered up online, including Andrea Werhun and Nicole Bazuin's Modern Whore. If you haven't read the book of the same name, you're going to have to wait for the expanded edition, which was just funded on Kickstarter!

Maybe...Eggplant?

Finally, if you do have access to a variety of foodstuffs, why not give a vegetarian diet a try?
