Cosmo Declares November 4th "International Don't Fake It Day"

A recent poll from Cosmopolitan Magazine revealed that 86% of its readers have faked an orgasm. We can't say that we're terribly surprised. There are plenty of reasons why a woman might fake an orgasm, in fact, it's been scientifically studied. Scientists Gayle Brewer of the University of Central Lancashire and Colin Hendrie of the University of Leeds conducted a study about vocalizations during sex. The study revealed that, while female orgasms were most common during foreplay, the women made orgasm-like vocalizations most often before and during male orgasms. In other words, we tend to make those ooohs, ahhhs and YES's not because we're about to climax, but because we want him to. Now, while there's nothing wrong with coaxing an orgasm out of your partner, verbally or otherwise, it's important not to short-change yourself along the way. Studies show that 33-50% of women experience orgasm infrequently and are dissatisfied with how often they reach it.* Faking an orgasm sends the inaccurate message to your partner that they're doing something that's pleasurable (or rather, positively orgasmic) for you when in fact they aren't. This false-positive reinforcement breaks down the communication that's critical to any sexually satisfying relationship. The more that women (and their partners) learn about their bodies and what makes them feel good, the more likely those women are to have sexually satisfying relationships. Further, the more we talk about a stumbling block like "faking it", the closer we'll be to fixing it. That's why 19 editions of Cosmo from around the world have teamed up to declare today, November 4th, Cosmo's International Don't Fake It Day. The magazine asks that you "stop pretending and actually have the climax you deserve... or at least fess up to your guy why it's been happening so you can work on a solution together." Sign their pledge and agree to join the (honest) fun. If you're looking for some assistance in keeping it real, check out our tips on how to introduce a vibrator into your relationship. Oh, and if you're wondering why we chose the unicorn image, it's because they fake their orgasms too. Thought you should know. *Orgasmic Dysfunction, Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia, September 2002

Food Porn - Spice Up Your Travels

Friday, August 19, 2011 11:53:45 AM America/Los_Angeles

Next time in Paris, consider dining in a brothel – Lapérouse.

Next time in Paris, consider dining in a brothel – Lapérouse.

Your bags are packed for a summer getaway that will leave everything but your lover behind. Whether it's a relaxing weekend in LA or a two-week Euro-tour, a vacation for two is not just a chance to explore a new city, but an opportunity to step outside your patterns altogether.

Often the most memorable experiences of a vacation are when you're immersed in the locale. Sunny days are prime time for holding hands in the park, flirting in museums and kissing in front of iconic monuments. When the sun sets, change into your finery and embark on your evening with an exquisite meal. Exploring the local culinary scene is a great way to connect with a city and to take on a bit of its character yourself. To truly taste the terroir, let your inhibitions loose and order the chef's specialty or a local staple you can't properly pronounce. Let dinner set the stage for the finale to come. From Chicago to Shanghai, here's a list of restaurants that are sure to satisfy – Paris – Lapérouse This 17th-century maison just off the bank of the Seine was once a legendary Parisian brothel. The passion still seeps from the intricate woodwork, and the low lighting brings a luminous glow to the elegant armchairs, grandiose mirrors and ornate chandeliers. Tip – Reserve one of the legendary private salons for two (our favorite is La Belle Otero) and discretely return the room to its former glory between courses. London – The Fat Duck The Fat Duck has held an impressive three star Michelin rating since 1994. The restaurant's dishes aim to heighten all the senses (something near and dear to the Jimmyjane philosophy) and bring a sense of magic and excitement to the dining experience. On occasion, waiters will actually perform tricks, breaking the "no playing with your food" rule with offhand elegance. Tip – If this Duck's a bit too fat for your wallet, trade molecular gastronomy for amazing gastropub and head to the Harwood Arms – the first and only London pub with a Michelin star. Mumbai – Indigo From Brangelina to the Clintons, Indigo makes it on everyone's travel lists. Surround yourself with the glamorous while dining on the restaurant's long-time specialty – risotto with black olive tapenade – and finish with the chocolate fondant with jalapeno peppers. Tip – Sunday brunch pairs live jazz with free-flowing Indian liquor. Shanghai – Wang Bao He Wang Bao He has been serving Shanghai's famous "hairy crab" since 1744 – an ancient meal that foodies around the world praise as a life changing experience. Tip – The gray-green crustacean pairs well with the famed Saoxing "yellow" wine. San Francisco – Locanda This Roman menu is filled with daring ingredients that will transform hesitation into satisfaction. Start with the adventurous chilled pig's head or oxtail, and then move on to the safer pizza bianca. Los Angeles – The Little Door Whether you sit in the winter garden or in the piano room, The Little Door will seduce you with its ambiance. Savor the menu of roasted meats and sip from a wine list full of juicy California varietals. Tip – keep your eye out for celebrities in disguise. Miami – Il Gabbiano Sit under the glowing moon and enjoy the warm waterfront breeze on Il Gabbiano's gorgeous terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay. Indulge in the generous Italian portions and sip from the full-bodied wine list, after raising a glass to the one sitting across from you. Chicago – Prairie Fire Prairie Fire's menu is loaded with seasonal American comfort food from local sustainable farms. The highlights include plump, handcrafted sausage, and their famous dessert menu with "Mom's Seasonal Pies". Tip – Get the banana cream pie to-go for a hotel room treat complete with plenty of whipped cream. New York City – Prune With only 30 seats, the line out the door is always long – but some things are worth the wait. Prune offers perfection without pretention. The tiny dining room and bistro-feel are endearing and honest, right down to the mismatched utensils. Tip – Read Blood, Bones & Butter, the remarkable autobiography of the restaurant's chef and owner, Gabrielle Hamilton.

Music to Tune the Mood

If you're liking the Lykke, you might also like to download Beck's remix here. "You" by CREEP ft Nina Sky Four ladies who getright to the point – "Can I get a taste of you? Thirsty for everything you do." Knock yourself out. "House of Balloons" by The Weeknd Life outside the bedroom is full of moments where one must weigh needs versus wants, but in sex, these often blur into one, hot romp. Expand your horizons and explore someone else's sexual to-do list. This track is only one of nine from The Weeknd's "House of Balloons" mixtape – click here for a free download of the whole deal.

Let them eat pie.

Let them eat pie.

Love Potion No. 9 may be not available at the grocery store, but a mouth-watering dessert can easily stand in place of an arousing elixir. Thankfully, your local farmer’s market is ripe with seasonal aphrodisiacs, perfect for baking up a delectable treat that will excite more than just taste buds. Ruby red, taut and juicy, the early summer harvest is all about cherries, a fruit with a rich history of feminine (and simply sexual) allusion. From 80’s rock to centuries of slang, cherries have long conjured images of anatomy and the possibilities of the forbidden. As it turns out, there may be science behind the cherry’s ribald reputation. The fruit provides potassium, a requirement for sexual hormone production, as well as an abundance of antioxidants, helping keep skin temptingly beautiful and youthful. Their rich red hue is even said to stimulate pheromone production. (A theory perhaps best tested by rubbing the fruit over lips, nipples and naughtybits.) Think sexy while doing your shopping, and pick up a pint of the irreverent gems – with a little imagination, you’ll find a multitude of ways to enjoy them. Snack on them while reading a dirty novel or while watching porn, rolling the smooth fruit around on your tongue. Stash a handful in the freezer, then use them as a delicious alternative to ice during temperature play. Bite into the cherry and drip the red juices over desirable areas, leaving your partner to lick the sugary trail. Anything you eat with your fingers can become a tease; take turns feeding each other and dangling the fruit above an open mouth before dropping it in. Dip cherries in chocolate for an aphrodisiac double-dose. If you really want to impress your lover, tie on the ol’ apron (preferably over little else) and whip up a warm, sticky cherry pie. Ask your partner for help massaging the crust, taste-testing the filling or whipping the cream – so to speak. Amuse yourselves while you wait for the pie to emerge from the oven, and when the timer dings, enjoy your hot reward right there in the kitchen.

Taking Pleasure in the Music Festival Season

The hot, sunny days and long, wild nights of summer radiate sexual energy. Minimal clothing (and inhibitions) make the season conducive to adventurous romps and fleeting flings, especially for attendees of one of summer’s greatest party circuits – music festivals. From May to September, millions pack up their bags and set out on a pilgrimage around the world to consume hours of music, dance in the grass and sleep under the stars. The sense of community is reason enough to attend these massive gatherings. Everyone is bound to make a few new friends, share lawn chairs and swap snacks, drinks and doobs. With all those people and all that serotonin, spontaneous sex is virtually inevitable. Getting some private time amid the public masses may seem tricky, but successful festival season interludes are possible, and more rewarding, with a little preparation. Pack along some self-care essentials, including safe-sex options, travel-ready sex accessories, and your favorite eau de je-ne-sais-quoi. The options fly open from there and it’s up to you, and maybe your tent mates, to decide who gets the first romp. With a little flexibility and varying degrees of exhibitionism, you and your partner(s) can find pleasure while enjoying the ongoing musical accompaniment. From indie-rock to electronic and country, genre options are just as varied as the concert locations, which can range from mountain-side to wide-open fields. It’s impossible to hit them all in a single run, so be picky about which festivals get your lovin’. Before you pay your way into any event, make sure it’s your style and vice versa. Can you handle an entire weekend? Do you fantasize about sleeping-bag sex, or are you a camping virgin? Maybe you envision a hotel escape? Check out this diverse list of stellar festivals and their varied options. Start planning early and the reward will be twice as nice. Glastonbury Festival – June 22-26, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK From big names like U2 and Beyonce, to indie-stars Crystal Castles and the Go! Team, Glasbonbury’s 12 stages are guaranteed to pleasure everyone’s preferences. The best part: legendary teepees, available for rent and a true out-of-bed experience. Wanderlust – June 23-26, Stratton Mountain Ski Resort, Bondville, VT This festival is uniquely tailored to body, mind and spirit, offering yoga, rock ‘n’ roll and breathtaking views from the top of a mountain. Ride the gondola between sets and give your partner a mile-high high they’ll never live down. Electric Forest Festival – June 30-July 3, Rothbury MI Dance hard to Bassnectar’s deep beats and then slip away to make love under the magicalcanopy of Sherwood Forest. Camp Bisco – July 7-9, Mariaville, NY Lots of synth and digital jams will send electronic currents from the stage to the campground. Keep your own vocals in the lower frequencies and let the bass obscure your secret session. EXIT Festival – July 7-10, Novi Sad, Serbia The Exit Village campsite can stretch out your stay to a nine-day party, complete with educational workshops; a quiet break from the schedule of over 600 performers, including M.I.A and Arcade Fire. EMRG +N+SEE – July 15-18, Portland, OR The crazy line-up of DJs will get your body all warmed up before you get all wet – with the ‘Pond’ party and a private yacht cruise. Telluride Bluegrass Festival – July 16-19, Telluride, CO Gorgeous, lush mountains are the perfect compliment to a more low-key bluegrass festival. These country tunes are great for romantic picnics and modest make-outs. Get cozy in the moonlight and listen to the coyotes howl. Fuji Rock Festival – Jul 29-31 Naeba Ski Resort, Yuzawa-machi, Niigata Rock hard with Coldplay and even harder with The Kills, then relax to Beach House and Wilco. Keep clean in the Resort’s collection of rooms or get down & dirty at the campsite. Outside Lands – August 12-14, San Francisco, CA No tents allowed at this mid-city festival, but getting busy outdoors in the gigantic urban park is still a valid option. Skip the skivvies and find a big Redwood to cover your quickie. Lollapalooza – August 5-7, Grant Park, Chicago, IL Check into a Chicago hostel or splurge on a fancy downtown hotel. A little sexual healing on crisp white sheets will help you dance through the long list of acts, including Eminem, Girl Talk, Flogging Molly and Beirut.

Wherefore art thou, pubic hair wig?

Thursday, May 26, 2011 6:42:01 PM America/Los_Angeles

Wherefore art thou, pubic hair wig?

The Freemasons have some interesting handshakes, the Shriners have some interesting hats, but only the Beggar's Benison has a wig made of pubic hair. This gentleman's society (read: sex club), which was founded in 1732 near Edinburgh, Scotland and included a royal ancestor of Prince William (Gasp! Scandal!) has now been reduced to a small collection of artifacts housed in a staid university museum. While the collection is filled with items such as phallus-shaped drinking glasses and platters decorated with penis-shaped lighthouses, the true crown jewel – a wig made entirely of King Charles II's mistresses' pubic hair – lives on only in written accounts. Apparently, this wig was believed to increase the wearer's sexual potency...which he then used to masturbate onto a pewter platter with his fellow brotherhood. It kind of sounds like Eyes Wide Shut, but instead of Tom Cruise in a cape, you get old men running around naked in pube wigs. Admit it, you'll never look at British parliamentary wigs the same way again. The staff at the Museum of the University of St. Andrews will be happy to don latex gloves and show you the Beggar's Benison collection if you ask nicely, but don't expect to see it on public view anytime soon. However, if you are interested in sex paraphernalia from times of yore, you should definitely check out:

  • "Ice Art – Clearly Male" is a traveling art exhibition featuring the world's oldest dildo – a 20cm siltstone carving from 28,000 years ago. Though initially thought to be a knife-sharpening tool, its "highly polished" surface led archeologists to speculate that it had actually been a sex toy. Mind you, these archeologists had probably been on this dig for a very long time. Alone.
  • The Ancient China Sex Culture Museum in Shanghai houses a vast collection of objects, including artificial vaginas from the Qing Dynasty 3500 years ago, as well as bondage implements and double-ended dildos.
  • Almost any museum that houses ancient Greek pottery and art will also house Greek pornography. The Greeks happily decorated anything and everything with bawdy imagery, from engorged Satyrs chasing nubile Maenads to depictions of fellatio, sodomy, bestiality, the list goes on. Why waste space with a water pitcher AND a porn collection when you can have a pornographic water pitcher?

Long-Distance Sexing

Long-Distance Sexing 

Photo courtesy of www.meinmyplace.com

Just because your partner is in a different time zone is no reason to stop having sex – yes, we mean with each other. While geographic separation may make it difficult to, say, have a quickie on the kitchen table, you can still have amazing, satisfying sex. All you need is a little planning, a webcam – and a little willingness to expand your definition of "sex." Here are five steps to doing it intercontinental-style.

1. You have Skype, right? Right?? No? Okay, here you go. Now you can see each other (naked) and talk (dirty) to one another as much as you want, and you can also do Steps 2 through 5.

2. Get comfortable. Even couples who have been together for ages can find it suddenly awkward to talk and act erotically for one another when confronted with a webcam. Bring your laptop into the bedroom, and arrange the webcam so it's filming you in bed – this is where many people feel the most comfortable being sexual, and it may help you open up, so to speak.

3. I saw something that made me think of you." Talking dirty is an art, but it's fairly easy to learn. A good rule of thumb is to start by describing something sexy you saw or heard, or a dream you had, and, yes, you can totally make it up. This takes the pressure off you to talk about yourself and your sexy thoughts, while still giving your partner plenty to get excited about. Once you're both turned on and feeling less inhibited, you can get personal with a "what would you do to me if I was there?" line of questioning.

4. Embrace your inner exhibitionist and voyeur. Talking each other off while you masturbate is one way – but if you want to take it up a notch, you can also put on a show with a striptease or vibrator play. Try experimenting with the lighting and camera angle to set the mood. Tip: The most universally flattering camera angle tends to be from slightly above looking down.

5. Yay, technology. Though not yet commercially available, there are computer "body stimulation" accessories currently in development that will make your web camming experience all the more pleasurable. These vibrating devices connect through platforms like Skype, and can be remotely controlled by your partner. So when they tell you what they're going to do to you... they can actually do it. What are these devices called, pray tell? "Teledildonics." The best word ever.

Orgasm Connoisseurs – Experts Weigh In on Different Types of Orgasm

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 8:31:26 AM America/Los_Angeles

Depending on who you ask, women can have anywhere from one to seven different types of orgasms. Here are what some well-known specialists have claimed about the mysterious phenomenon of female pleasure.

Sigmund Freud and the Immature Orgasm. Freud believed that there are two types of orgasm – clitoral and vaginal – and that each is linked to a different level of psychological wellness. He saw vaginal/penetrative orgasms as indicating good health, and clitoral orgasms as evidence of immaturity and stunted emotional development. Er, thanks Siggy.

Alfred Kinsey and Orgasm Equality. Luckily, our understanding of orgasm has improved since Freud. In the 1950s, the famed Kinsey Report cited extensive research in its claim there is only one kind of orgasm. Whether you’re into the clitoris, G-spot or anus, it all takes you to the same place. While the sensations might feel different, the biological mechanisms at work are all the same.

Betty Dodson, Orgasm Doctor. Sex therapist Dr. Betty Dodson began to teach women how to reach orgasm in the early 70s, giving her ample insight into the subtleties of different orgasmic sensations. In her book, Orgasm For Two, Dodson lists a whopping seven(!) different types of orgasm, including the following –

Pressure Orgasm – This happens when you exert pressure on the clitoris, such as by crossing the legs. Try this one at the dinner table.
Tension Orgasm – Results from stimulating the clitoris while clenching the muscles of the body. This very common type of orgasm is experienced as a powerful release of built-up tension.
Relaxation Orgasm – The spa of orgasms. It requires clitoral stimulation and the relaxation of the muscles of the body. The orgasm gradually builds as the body relaxes.
G-Spot Orgasm – Results from stimulation of the sensitive tissue one to three inches inside and on the front wall of the vagina.
Blended Orgasm – Results from simultaneous G-spot and clitoral stimulation, and is often described as more intense than a clitoral orgasm.
Multiple Orgasm – A series of separate orgasms that follow one another in waves. This is different from the “aftershocks” of a strong, single orgasm.
Fantasy Orgasm – Look Ma, no hands. A very small percentage of women claim that they can reach orgasm through mental stimulation only. Lucky ladies.

Of course, we have our own list of types of orgasms, including the FORM 2 orgasm, the FORM 3 orgasm, the FORM 4gasm, the FORM 6 orgasm... You get the idea.
