Oh yes we did. Finally.

Monday, January 3, 2011 1:54:31 PM America/Los_Angeles

Oh Yes, We did.

We started a blog. Just for you. And you. And you over there with no clothes on. And all you sexy, well-rounded people who are interested in things besides sex…but mostly sex.

We are very excited about having this new space to share our passion for living sexy – and to start some intriguing conversations about culture, music, design, politics and everything else that relates to sexuality (and, really, very few things don’t). Here you’ll be able to get lots of T&A (Tips & Advice, ahem), as well as news commentary, videos, gratuitously sexy slideshows and more. As always, if there’s a specific subject you’d like us to address – perhaps you’re wondering how to find the mysterious G-spot? – by all means, let us know. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy checking us out. XO, Jimmyjane

Study: Older, Wiser…Faster.

Monday, January 17, 2011 9:50:54 AM America/Los_Angeles

Study: older is sexy

A new study has shown that women in their 40s are far more likely to have sex on a first date.

While only 17% of women in their 20s go all the way on the first go-round, as many as 29% of forty-somethings cut right to the chase. Undoubtedly, there are many reasons behind this discrepancy. However, it does remind us of something a Jimmyjane friend once said: “Sex is wasted on young people who couldn't find their G-spot if it was in the middle of their forehead.” While this is a bizarre image to contemplate, she had a point – with age comes sexual self-awareness. Once you know what you want (and where and how fast), it's much easier to go after it, and far more satisfying when you get it. Incidentally, studies also show that 100% of women go all the way on their first date with FORM 2. But we'll save that for another posting.

How to Fix the Global Libido Deficit

Tuesday, February 1, 2011 1:04:33 PM America/Los_Angeles

If our grandmothers are to be believed, people are obsessed with sex. It's sex, sex, sex all the time with you people. However, an increasing number of studies are showing that just the opposite is true. From Japan to the entire European Union, birth rates and libidos are declining, and governments have begun stepping in to shore up the national mojo.

Obviously, the problem isn't that everyone's listening to Jimmyjane staff grandmothers. There's a plethora of reasons for the trend, from libido-killing birth control pills to obsessive iPhoning. But the solution probably doesn't lie in paying couples to have sex (we're talking to you, Taiwan). Here are five ways to take action and eliminate your own personal Sex Drive Deficit. 1. Shake it up. The best way to stay interested in sex is to, well, keep it interesting. If you're feeling like you've fallen into a routine, try initiating sex differently than you typically do – at a different time of day or in a different room of the house. Breaking this initial part of the routine will open the whole experience up to new things – from new positions to a new pair of wrist restraints. 2. Do it more often. In many ways, the sex drive works on momentum. The more you do it, the more you'll think about it, and the more you may find you want it. If you're having a hard time kickstarting your libido, you may want to... 3. Take some "me" time. Ladies, solo masturbation with a vibrator is a great way to develop a healthy fantasy life and figure out what sensations feel best to you. If you're worried you'll develop some kind of addiction to your vibrator, fret not: Studies have shown that women who use vibrators experience better overall sexual function. 4. Flirt. Yes, even if you're in a committed relationship. And no, we don't advocate getting physical with the object of your eyelash-batting. Flirting is an excellent (and harmless) way to stir up and channel your sexual energy. 5. Get visual. While previous studies indicated that women do not become aroused by pornography as quickly as men, those studies also required female participants to wear uncomfortable insertable metal probes. So. New studies show women are very turned on by erotic imagery, such as these lady-friendly sites and films recommended by sex educator Violet Blue.

How to Give a Vibrator

How to Give Good Vibrator

Jimmyjane T&A: How to Give a Vibrator Believe it or not, finding the perfect gift to send your loved one to the moon is not rocket science. These simple tips will make the whole introduction go smoothly, and ensure your gift is received with oohs, aahs and – well, you know.

1. Lay the groundwork. Chances are, your loved one has tried or thought about trying a vibrator (up to 52.5% of women and 44% of men have used one). If you're daunted by the idea of broaching the subject openly, there are other ways to gently gauge their receptiveness. Bump into a bullet or ring vibrator at the local drugstore, or point out a vibrator-focused news item online (or on Oprah). Profess your curiosity, and see how your partner responds. 2. Take advantage of the holidays. Though movie nights and sunny Tuesday afternoons are both great occasions to give a vibrator, a special occasion can provide the perfect explanation for your special thoughtfulness. Of course, you'll want to ensure your gift is opened in private (i.e. not during family holiday brunch). This gives you the perfect excuse to plan some "we" time. If gifting your vibrator in person isn't an option, you can always send it directly from Jimmyjane in our iconic gift wrapping – privacy and discretion are always guaranteed. 3. Make it Simple. If your lucky friend is new to vibration, consider unintimidating products that are easy to use and focused on clitoral stimulation, such as our ICONIC BULLET or ICONIC SMOOTHIE Vibrators. If she's used a vibrator before, a versatile vibrator that provides both internal and external stimulation – such as our FORM 6 – may be just the upgrade she's looking for. 4. Make it Beautiful. If anything should be beautiful, it's the objects involved in our sexuality. It communicates that your sexual experiences together are an important part of the relationship, and are worthy of care and consideration. We've heard some great success stories of LITTLE SOMETHING helping to make the conversation a positive one – who'd turn down a 24k gold vibrator? 5. Make it Fun. If you've been practicing your Vibrator Gift speech in front of the bathroom mirror, stop. It's perfectly fine to be a little giddy when you give your gift. If you're open about your excitement about giving a vibrator, your partner will likely feel just as excited as you do.

Spread the Word: Porna

Thursday, April 14, 2011 11:41:15 AM America/Los_Angeles

Spread the Word: Porna

Um, excuse us while we move to the Netherlands, immediately – so we can tune into Dusk, a TV station that broadcasts round-the-clock pornography for women. While the notion of women-focused erotica isn't exactly new – Candida Royalle, Andrew Blake and Comstock Films all have their own take – Dusk is on a mission to make it less of an outlier in the hyper-masculine world of traditional porn. They've even coined a new word for it: porna. According to Dusk Founder Martijn Boersma in an article in the GlobalPost, "porna" is characterized by explicit, respectful, realistic sex that is embedded in a storyline. The kicker is that Dusk doesn't presume to know what women want – they actually host an online panel, in which Dusk viewers can give feedback on the shows. Dusk adjusts their scheduling and content accordingly. Brilliant! Though only three years old, Dusk has found huge success in the Netherlands, and it's no wonder – studies showed that over half of Dutch women watched porn, and 78% would welcome a women-focused porn channel. Can someone please conduct that study over here in the States? When can we get a Dusk? While there may not be much we can do to help Boersma with his goal to take ladyporn mainstream, perhaps we can all chip in on one of his other missions – getting the word "porna" into the dictionary. If we all slip "porna" into casual conversation at least once a day, we'll be off to a good start, as in –

"You know what would pair well with this Petit Syrah? Porna."

"You know what would really round out NBC Thursdays? Porna."

You get the idea.

Ladies, if you are planning a vacation that leaves out the eating and praying and goes straight for the loving, you may want to take a look at this. Finally, an interactive map that showing penis size by country. Someone really spent a lot of time putting this together, and we're guessing it wasn't Lonely Planet. Perhaps someone who went to Venezuela for vacation and didn't realize what she was in for? ¡Dios mio!

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.

Long-Distance Sexing

Long-Distance Sexing

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.

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?
