Harlequin and Cosmo are teaming up

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 4:39:09 PM America/Los_Angeles

Calling all brilliant authors, will someone talented please write a steamy erotic novel? Please? If not, this perfectly lovely genre will continue to be left to the Harlequins and Cosmopolitans of the world. Yep, these two self-professed sexpert mediums are going to start bringing cookie-cutter erotic fiction to E-readers everywhere. According to The New York Times, Harlequin will publish two electronic books each month starting next May. These short novelettes will be written by Harlequin writers, but be imprinted with the Cosmo name. Clearly, Cosmo is going after the large and growing Fifty Shades of Grey audience. It's fitting, really, since Cosmo has been producing sexual fiction for years.

College Kids are Kinky

Thursday, November 29, 2012 6:09:18 PM America/Los_Angeles

We all know that college students hit the books hard. But as it turns out, they’re also hitting each other, with riding crops, belts, paddles, canes, and floggers. “Floggers are my favorite,” Says a Harvard Junior, who goes by “Maria” in this article by the New York Observer. BDSM (short for bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism) has been around since the beginning of sex. But the accelerated mainstream acceptance of these practices may have something to do with the rise in popularity of erotic novels such as Fifty Shades of Grey. This acceleration is most apparent in Ivy league colleges such as Columbia, Tufts, MIT, Yale and Harvard. All of these schools offer unofficial “Munch groups.” A munch group  is an informal gathering to eat and socialize and discuss their interest in kinky sex. The Harvard College Munch group has been meeting casually since October of 2011, growing from 7 members to 20. Tomorrow, it will be ratified as an official club by Harvard's student-life committee. This means more privileges for the members, more recognition from the school, and more opportunity for students to discuss the issues that are important to them. Read more about it in the Harvard Crimson.

Erotic Films to Watch with your Family This Holiday

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 11:00:04 AM America/Los_Angeles

Let’s face it, you can only watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” so many times before you want George Bailey to just jump off the bridge already. Mix it up this holiday with pornography for the whole family. Stuck at home until Sunday with a dozen relatives? These erotic films will both pass the time and spark colorful conversation at the Thanksgiving table. Eruption Picture a feature-length X-rated Magnum PI episode shot with Instagram filters, and you're well on your way to imagining this classic American porn. Filmed way back in 1977 when pornographers used film (16mm in this case), writers worked up hokey-laborate plots to explain inexplicable couplings (okay, they still do that), men had mustaches, and everybody had pubic hair, this is one amazing time capsule. The star of the film is not John Holmes, as the credits may lead you to believe, but his legendary penis. In other words, there’s serious potential to frighten your younger cousins from ever wanted to have sex (or go to Hawaii). Emmanuelle Collection Does your family like foreign films? Perhaps you can all pick up a little Francais with these cult-classics. This series of French softcore films was a global phenomenon when it was launched in 1974, and led to a surge in popularity of the genre. The series stars Sylvia Kristel as Emmanuelle, the young wife of a French diplomat, and begins as she travels to Thailand to be with him. When she immerses herself in the local culture and expatriate community, she explores her sexuality with ever-intensifying adventures in promiscuity. It beats playing pinochle with Uncle Fred. Magic Mike What better way to bond with Mom than over Channing Tatum’s bare ass? This movie isn’t exactly pornography – there’s no real sex in it. However, it features adult themes including male strippers, excessive drug use, and Matthew McConaughey. Watch with caution if grandma has a heart condition. No matter what you decide to watch, we hope you enjoy your holiday. Happy Thanksgiving, from Jimmyjane.

What would your mother think?

Monday, November 12, 2012 11:08:10 AM America/Los_Angeles

As a Jimmyjane blog reader, you’ve probably seen the articles about our founder, Ethan Imboden, and how he got into the vibrator biz in the first place. But, have you ever thought about how his mother might feel? Well, now you can read all about it, in the New York Times post by Joy Overstreet Imboden (AKA, “Mom” to Ethan). In this honest account, Overstreet discusses how she went from a prudish Boston upbringing to investing in (and helping with) her son’s vibrator business. Sweet, right? Reactions to the article range from “awe” to “ew,” as you can read in Jezebel’s response to the article. Jezebel seems into it. The folks who commented below, not so much. What do you think of giving your mom a personally engraved vibrator for her birthday? Let us know.

Care for a buzz with that buzz?

Friday, October 5, 2012 4:14:00 PM America/Los_Angeles

The conversation around female masturbation is changing... venues. According to the Tokyo Reporter, it's moved out of women's apartments (over a glass of wine) and into bars (over a glass of wine). After all, what goes better with vibrator talk than booze? Japan has opened the first masturbation-themed bar. Love Joule, located in Tokyo's bustling Shibuya district, features an assortment of colorful vibrators behind the bar in the place where you'd normally see an assortment of colorful liquor bottles. (Fact for the day: an indulgence in masturbation instead of alcohol is 100% less likely to result in a hangover the next morning.) Proprietor Megumi Nakagawa created the bar as a safe space for women to openly discuss their sexual preferences and turn-ons. Men are allowed in, but not without a female chaperone. This bar is an example of Japan's new eagerness to do away with the stigma surrounding female masturbation. (This, from the country that brings us the portable flushing noise gadget so no one can hear you pee.) This masturbation bar may be the first bar with vibrators, but it's not the first to bring an open discussion of sexual pleasure into social establishments. San Francisco is home to a cafe centered around the BDSM community. New York's East Village opened (and closed) a V-shaped bar called Lava Gina (perhaps they should have offered vibrators to keep their doors open?). So what do you think - is Japan ahead of this trend? Or behind it?

See the unseen

Thursday, September 27, 2012 2:00:38 PM America/Los_Angeles

Have you ever seen metal waving like a flag in the wind? Water droplets dancing and hovering? We believe the pleasure’s in the details – even the ones you can’t see – so we were smitten when we came across this video by Fluke Corporation, specializing in electronic test tools and software. No, they do not test our vibrators, though clearly we need to send them FORM 2 to shoot at 1,000 frames per second. Click on the image to the left to see vibrations like you've never seen before.

Naked German People

Thursday, September 20, 2012 3:39:05 PM America/Los_Angeles

You may have noticed that most people that you pass on the street – perhaps all of them – are covered in a soft, malleable substance known as clothing. What is the purpose of said clothing? To keep us warm, certainly. To shelter us from the sun’s damaging rays. To protect us from the elements. However, there’s much more to it than that. Clothing denotes culture and class. It can communicate interests, self-image and of course, fashion (see last week's post). But clothing is also a shield, hiding our true appearance from all but a select few. As the German website, Naked-people.de explains, “Clothing is our second skin. It disguises [or] reveals. It can reflect our innermost being, or conceal it.” Scroll through these images of human beings of all shapes and sizes with their clothes on and their clothes off. Our general impression is that, save for a few tattoos and a little extra body fat here and there, we’re mostly all the same underneath. What’s yours?

Ladies on Top

Thursday, September 13, 2012 5:34:29 PM America/Los_Angeles

Many unsavory acts have happened in New York City taxi cabs. This Brian Atwood Fall 2012 Fashion Film though, was apparently just too racy. According a recent NY Post article, NYC Taxis removed the film from their rear-seat TVs for its risqué content, and the banner ad (pictured on the left) was banned from Atwood's Madison Ave. We found it interesting that the banned ads feature sexy women in positions of power. Whether she’s chewing on a shoe while men stroke her legs, or watching sexy videos on a giant wall of screens, the woman is the one calling the shots. During this Fifty-Shades-of-Grey age, in which casual conversation about “doms” and “subs” can be heard on the bus, why should ads like this not grace the streets of Mahattan. Is it because a woman is in charge instead of a man?

Lesbians. They're so hot right now.

Thursday, September 6, 2012 10:58:49 AM America/Los_Angeles

Put on your Prada and grab your Gucci; it’s fashion week in New York City. Starting yesterday, the world’s biggest fashion designers are gathering in Manhattan to display their latest collections. It’s the week that determines what’s “in” and what’s “out” for the coming season. So what’s "in" right now? Lesbians, apparently. Whether in a catalog for JC Penny or a full-page magazine spread for Barneys, girl-on-girl action seems to be the marketing trend. Barneys fall campaign (pictured here) features two female models, Arizona Muse and Magda Laguinge. The shots aren’t completely explicit – they have no children together (as in the JC Penny ads), nor are they making out. But, as Barneys creative director, Dennis Freedman, explains to WWD, "they’re clearly meant to be lovers." So, it looks like the lesbian community went from being an oppressed minority to the chique new way to sell clothes. Is this advancement for the gay community or is this offensive objectification? What do you think?
