You know what Ben Franklin said: Early to bed, early to rise makes a woman rested, safe, and married.
A new study from the University of Chicago shows that women who stay up late tend to have similar risk-taking tendencies as men, and that night-owls of both genders were less likely to be in long-term relationships. Continue reading →
Since starting this website in 2002, it’s not surprising we’ve seen thousands of sex products in every category imaginable. That said, not every adult toy has lived up to its hype, nor have we been able to endorse more than a tiny percentage of what’s come across our desks. Even further, some products, bless their inventor’s hearts, have simply left us shaking our head in bewilderment. Without further ado, here are a few of the most bizarre sex toys we’ve actually tried…
Does her lustful desire compel her to close the space between you, to seek you out as you stand in a crowd, to trace with her delicate hand the line of your broad shoulders, the curve of your back as the eyes of surrounding hopefuls are upon you, their gazes devouring, brazenly undressing your imposing, muscular form?

Skin tight leather-clad outfits, whips, and chains are all part of what is considered to be the subtle yet pervasive bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism (BDSM) culture. The act of sexually enjoying giving and receiving pain — sadomasochism (S&M) — once thought to be a pathological practice is now viewed as some type of meditation. According to a recent study presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in Austin, Texas, the practice of S&M alters blood flow in the brain, which leads to an altered state of consciousness similar to a “runner’s high” or yoga.

Takeaway: Asking yourself a few simple before buying a harness can make for happier humping.
A couple years ago, I got a request for an advice piece on how to choose a harness for strap-on sex. I didn’t have to do much research before it became apparent that a 500-word blog post was not going to be enough to encompass all that goes into this important sexual tool.
So, two years, hundreds of harnesses and multiple orgasms later, Queerie Bradshaw’s Guide to Choosing a Harness is finally live (and free to download by clicking here).
Kinkly.com asked me to share some of the top things I learned from making this guide, so here they are. Continue reading →
We’re sure you’ve been led to believe you’re a god in the sack, but let’s get real here. Only 25 percent of women consistently orgasm during sex, and according to a recent study published in the “Archive of Sexual Behavior” 80 percent of women fake orgasm. So sorry buddy, you’re probably doing it wrong. While you can’t make ’em stop, you can cut down on the theatrics by paying attention to these signs and proving to your girl there’s no reason to lie.

In our interactions with friends, family, and co-workers, we’ve encountered a number of them who are still single (in our age range) and use the excuse that the reason for their lonely relationship status is that they refuse to “settle.” This classification (settling) applies to all sorts of things, such as looks, financial status, educational level, physical fitness… you name it. It seems that if one “settles,” or compromises on (insert standard here), then not only has that person somehow betrayed his or her pursuit of the correct mate, but also that the relationship is doomed to failure. If love isn’t porn star sex, butterflies in our stomachs, and instant chemistry does this mean we are “settling” for a partner who is boring, lousy sex, and unattractive? Continue reading →
