‘Twas the night before Christmas (Hanukkah, day five)
Not a creature was buzzing in the Jimmyjane hive.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of the massage oil in AFTERGLOW.
Women were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While visions of vibrators danced in their heads.
Men also nestled, so cozy and snug,
Dreamt of masturbation sleeves (and maybe butt plugs).

As an avid Jimmyjane blog reader, you’re probably able to locate a clitoris – perhaps even your own. But what about America’s high school students? According to a recent article in the New York Times, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what they aren’t learning.
In the vast majority of schools across the country, sex education falls on the limited spectrum between an “abstinence-until-marriage” approach and an “STD-prevention” one. Accordingly, many teenagers are getting their information (and misinformation) from online porn and other unreliable sources, leaving them unprepared for the emotional complications that come with sex, unpracticed in the open communication necessary for healthy relationships, and unaware of the subtleties of sexual pleasure.
To quote one of the male high school students interviewed in the article – “I think » Read more. »
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 » Read more. »
Music to Tune the Mood
Music taps into our emotions and when it’s passion we’re looking to harness, the right song can send pleasure from your ears to below the waist. Here are a few recent releases – and their accompanying visuals – that caught our attention. Apparently black & white videos are in? Try them as foreplay or as a soundtrack.
“Get Some” by Lykke Li
This one’s packed with role-playing potential. Imagine your partner working extra hard to please, and contemplate your options for returning the favor. If you’re liking the Lykke, you might also like to download Beck’s remix here.

Four ladies who getright to the point – “Can I get a taste of you? » Read more. »
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.

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.
