Red states love their vibrators

Thursday, August 23, 2012 4:56:49 PM America/Los_Angeles

If you believe everything you read online (which we absolutely advocate - the Internet never lies), then you'll be tickled pink (or red?) to see the correlation between buying sex toys and voting republican. According to a recent infographic, eight out of the ten states with the most sex toy purchases per person happen to be the same states that are leaning toward the Romney/Ryan ticket in November. While we're incredulous about the accuracy of these numbers (the data supposedly comes from "Internal Research"), we are sure that it's entertaining to compare this map to any map that shows predictions for the 2012 presidential race. Another theory - these are also some of the least populated states, so, maybe a vibrator helps pass the time during those lonely days on the farm.

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.

Thursday, August 16, 2012 5:24:56 PM America/Los_Angeles

Helen Gurley Brown first became famous for authoring the book, “Sex and the Single Girl.” This precocious book---encouraging women to have all the sex they desired---was published long before the writers of “Sex and the City” had even hit puberty. It was through this, and through her 32 years as the editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, that Ms. Brown stretched and broke the boundaries of women's roles and stereotypes from the 1960's on. She died on Monday in Manhattan, at age 90. Ms. Brown was a self-proclaimed feminist. It was she who introduced open discussions of sex into women’s magazines. Whether she furthered or hindered the women's liberation movement is still much debated. One thing that cannot be debated that she Brown was a shrewd business woman. When she started at Cosmo in 1965, it had a circulation of less than 800,000. By the mid 80s, circulation was close to three million. Helen Gurley Brown is credited with one of our favorite quotes: "Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere." And for that, among her other accomplishments and influences, we will miss her.

Olympic-sized Sex Fest

Thursday, August 9, 2012 1:02:48 PM America/Los_Angeles

Right now in London, thousands of athletes are competing in the ultimate test of strength, stamina, grace, or speed. According to an article in ESPN, this display continues off the field, gymnasium and pool and into bedrooms, various bars, and, hell, even on the lawn between dormitories. It was reported that at Sydney’s 2000 games, the 70,000 condoms distributed were insufficient. This prompted a new standing order of 100,000 condoms per Olympic games. 100,000 condoms. There are 10,960 athletes in London's 2012 Olympics. That's some shocking arithmetic, but at least they’re being safe. Though, imagine the strength and beauty of a baby that’s half U.S. swimmer and half Russian water polo player. Pause for a moment to visualize. Okay, now we can move on. This wild post-Olympic sex-fest makes perfect sense. Here you have a village full of perfectly sculpted athletes, most of whom are in their teens and twenties, that have been focusing on nothing but training for months. Of course they’d want to let off a little steam. And what better way to do it than to party down with similarly stacked individuals from every country that they’ll never see again. It’s almost too good to be true. As one American athlete told ESPN, "it turns into a frat party with a very nice gene pool." Image credit: Noma Bar, from the ESPN article.

Cats Vs. Pussies

Thursday, August 2, 2012 2:52:31 PM America/Los_Angeles

Google search sex terms Huffington Post Canada was such a big fan of our Desperately Searching infographic (Or, Graphic Info, as we call it), they decided to make their own slideshow. The Shutterstock photo they used to represent Cats Vs. Pussies is kind of hysterical. Well done, Huff Po. On the other hand, their headline - “What People Search For: Most Searched Sex Phrases On Google” is misleading. We did not claim nor imply that any the terms in the infographic are the most searched sex terms. They’re just sex terms that some people search for. Big difference.

Naked Light

Tuesday, July 24, 2012 10:48:20 AM America/Los_Angeles

The other day, while working on an upcoming project involving patterns and textures, we stumbled across the work of Fernand Fonssagrives. Generally our inspiration comes from further afield (fashion, nature, Higgs bosons), but this case, the subject matter was quite closely related to our work. Fonssagrives was a popular fashion photographer whose work was featured throughout the 40’s and 50’s in the likes of Town and Country, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. He found his inspiration close to home – his muse was none other than his wife, noted model Lisa Fonssagrives, who later remarried (and served as muse) to a different highly accomplished photographer, Irving Penn. Let’s just say, she has a type. As we’re always playing with the intersection of geometric and organic forms in our own work, we appreciate how Fonssagrives basic projection of a flat pattern comes to life when mapped onto the body. In the case of this particular image, it’s the acceleration and then attenuation of the simple circle that brings the contours to life and tells us when we’ve reached the extremity of the body. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for a series of related photographs by Fonssagrives. While you’re at it, let us know if you’ve come across any particularly arresting images of late – you never know, you might be able to spot your contribution to our next product.

Fifty Shades of Discerning Customers

Thursday, July 12, 2012 4:48:08 PM America/Los_Angeles

Despite the best efforts of sex educators like Betty Dodson, stores like Babeland and Good Vibrations, and brands like, well, us, the taboo around female sexual pleasure still lurks in American culture. Sure, there was the feminist revolution, Our Bodies, Ourselves, these definitely helped to bring the female orgasm out of the closet. The nineties brought Sex and the City, which helped to open up the conversation even further. But still, how often do women talk casually with their friends about the last time they masturbated? Our opinion - not as frequently as they should. Of course, everyone’s sexuality is their own private business. However, the more that women discuss what’s out there – techniques, vibrator options, new ideas – the more they can be inspired (rather than embarrassed) to explore their own range of sexual pleasure. Recently, there's been a step in the right direction in the form of a popular (and poorly-written) best-seller.  E.L. James’s steamy novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, seems to have parted the curtain of embarrassment to reveal a growing audience eager to read about a young woman’s sexual awakening. Women can be seen openly reading this heat-inducing trilogy in bookstores, cafes, and even on the New York subway. Despite the lack of literary value, we like where this trend is going. Here’s why – take Anastasia Steele, the central character in Fifty Shades. She’s a woman in her early twenties who recently graduated from college and, until meeting her charming grey-eyed lover, she’d never had an orgasm. This is not uncommon. Today, up to 50% of women experience orgasm infrequently and are dissatisfied with how often they reach it. At Jimmyjane, we’re on a mission to change that. The more each woman feels comfortable discussing her sexuality, with her friends and with her partner, the more she’ll learn what’s available to her. If she’s interested in experimenting with vibrators, she should have the knowledge (and the confidence) to ask about power levels and modes, power sources, price range, and materials used. This puts the control in her hands, rather than the hands of manufacturers. Only educated consumers have the power to increase demand for safer materials, eco-friendly policies and, most importantly, satisfaction and efficacy from the products they buy. So we say, fifty cheers for Fifty Shades. It may not be great literature, but it’s furthering an important conversation.

Dan Savage on Vibrators

Thursday, June 28, 2012 3:00:11 AM America/Los_Angeles

We’ve always been big fans of sex columnist Dan Savage and his no-nonsense style when it comes to doling out the advice on everything from relationships to masturbation to bestiality. His open and honest approach is both refreshing and, at times, hilarious. We were especially pleased with the advice he gave out last week in his Savage Love column in The Stranger. A 20-year-old woman wrote to him explaining that she’d been with the same guy for five years and she’d never had an orgasm until she finally tried using a vibrator. However, she is scared to tell her boyfriend about the purchase (and its success). Dan’s advice – Tell your boyfriend you bought a vibrator. If the boyfriend is sad about your purchase—and your ability to climax (congrats!)—tell him that some women require the kind of intense, focused stimulation that only a vibrator can provide in order to get off, and, as it turns out, you're one of those women. And he can still be the first person to give you an orgasm: He can give you one with a vibrator in his hand. And if he acts like an insecure bitch about it, CWF, if he blows up or melts down, well... New vibrator, newly orgasmic—maybe it's time for a new boyfriend, too?   Photo credit: Interview Magazine

Jimmyjane on Bravo

Monday, June 25, 2012 5:02:19 PM America/Los_Angeles

We’re excited to report that last week’s premiere of “Miss Advised” on Bravo did not disappoint. The reality show features friend of Jimmyjane, Emily Morse (of Sex With Emily), along with two other relationship experts, and proves that being a sex expert, does not make you a pro at your own love life. It's easier to give the advice than to follow it. The entertaining first episode included scenes from the launch party that Jimmyjane threw for Emily’s new book, “Hot Sex.” It also included some heart-to-hearts between Emily and her brother, covering topics from monogamy, to codependency, to cock rings. It's always an adventure in the Morse family, it would seem. Download the first episode for free on iTunes and catch the second episode tonight on Bravo. Also, check out Emily’s Picks on Jimmyjane
