That's not the only thing he'll be eating tonight.
  • That's not the only thing he'll be eating tonight.

The search for that new thing, the "all-natural" pill or seven-day hands-on intensive that'll make sex better and happen more often never quite ends. And while all that stuff might work (placebo effect or not) they're not the most affordable way to boost your libido and set your curious mind at momentary ease.

And that's why many of us turn to aphrodisiacs, foods that naturally occur in our cabinets and refrigerators and, when eaten at opportune times, can put a little tingle in our step. But what happens when oysters (acquired taste) and chocolate (calories) get old and we just want to eat fast food before we bone?

By now, everyone's heard about Frank Ocean. In case by some small chance you haven't, here's a recap. The singer is a member of Los Angeles alternative hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, better known as OFWGKTA or simply Odd Future. Ocean is the soulful crooner of the outfit, and his solo material has become the stuff of legends. He likes Coldplay, Radiohead and Prince. And yes, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that he kinda, sorta came out of the closet a couple of weeks before his album dropped via his Tumblr page. But what isn't mentioned in his confessional is that his instant classic, channel ORANGE, is the soundtrack to your bedroom experiences.

Ocean's smooth, seductive tenor has brought legions of fans out of the woodwork, singing and swooning to his ambitious lyrics and brand of R&B. By now everyone knows of the 24-year-olds lyrical prowess, however, when combined with his vocals, he can make the panties drop at the snap of a finger or when he hits the high notes.

Even when he's mocking people, like on "Super Rich Kids," Ocean makes it sound oh so good that you don't care if you're the subject of his scorn. That's the hallmark of a great album: the ability to make people lose themselves in the music and inhibit sexual activity. That's what the singer does well.

While some dudes love it when women wear some of the kinkiest garb out there (think: lingerie, collars and corsets) others are just as turned on by simple and easy articles of clothing. What she might call casual, he might deem sexy as hell, and we're here to clue you ladies in.

Get ready to rock his socks! (Literally!)

Who's ready to frolic?
  • Who's ready to frolic?

Perhaps you've noticed, it's really hot outside. Like, this fucking hot.

Temperatures are creeping into to the low hundreds throughout the United States with swampy bouts of humidity in all the places where that kind of shit happens. And while most civilized Americans are currently hunkered inside of their shaded, air-conditioned homes and offices, scurrying between temperature controlled environs like nervous mice and waiting to venture outdoors until after sundown, the rest of us poor savages are lying on the floors of our apartments in our underwear, (not even the nice ones), sitting in front of low-output fans, intermittently taking cold showers and sweating our collective balls off. It's gross and uncomfortable and clearly too toasty for intimate contact with another human being, lest both parties end up nearing a sex-induced heatstroke and scrambling for electrolytes.

With the national forecast proclaiming that "warm weather will continue to be the biggest story through the end of the work week," the maintenance of your sex life demands cool locales at which to get it on. We suggest:

I love July 6th.
  • I love July 6th.
Today is National Kissing Day (because we needed a calendar excuse to do it) and Craigslist, Facebook and OKCupid is teeming with wannabe worthy face-suckers to help you celebrate this post-Independence holiday.

But before you do, keep in mind that not all of you are the oral Casanovas that years of drunken mouth excavations have led you to believe. And it's understandable -- when you're wasted, or just waiting for the cab to arrive, odds are you aren't going to waste any time instructing your partner of how best you like to be licked...on your face.

But there are some serious kissing disasters going on every second of every day. And since some nympho decided to make today the official day to smooch your way to a better job, bf/gf, or discounted smog check, we thought it'd be helpful to alert you of potential tonsil hockey tragedies.

You know...so you don't do them. (You know who you are.)

Let your freak flag fly.
  • Let your freak flag fly.
On a day dedicated to freedom, (and hot dogs), nothing says "personal independence" like deliberately shunning decency laws and getting it on in public.

These national landmarks are ideal spots to celebrate USA day by setting off some personal fireworks (in your PANTS!) just out of sight from tourists and park rangers.

And isn't your right to do so what this holiday is all about?

Menopause is never fun, but for some women, it's torture. Ladies, if you reach that time in your life and find that playtime with your man (or woman) feels like getting stabbed with a knife, then it might be time to work on those kegels.

This should be interesting..
  • This should be interesting..

If you've ever watched porn, you've probably gazed with a sense of perplexed wonder at the crazy entanglements the performers manage to get themselves into (and out of). If you're like us, you may have even tried a few with mixed results. The point is always to experiment; however, in many cases some sex positions are not only uncomfortable and decidedly not sexy, they can be borderline dangerous as well. Here are a few we definitely advise against if you aren't a world class pair of gymnasts...

Camel crossing?
  • Camel crossing?
Let's face it; women do things for the benefit of other women, not for men. If the latter were true we'd be slinging our cameltoes around town like this season's hottest designer handbag.

Here's a fact: Guys like gazing at the outline of our labia, ladies. (Go figure!)

But instead of celebrating our crotch curves, many of us have been going out of our way to camouflage them without success -- until now.

Do you want the rest of the world to see your cleavage?
  • Do you want the rest of the world to see your cleavage?

There's a new iPhone app out there that lets you send a sexy photo to that dude you met at Mulligan's last night and allow him to enjoy it for just a few minutes before - POOF! - it deletes itself.

Snapchat, created by a Stanford University student, is the first attempt at eliminated the e-trail of bad judgment that you, I and your mailman have shown at least once this year.

Sure, it's fun to e-flirt by sending suggestive photos to one another but we all remember what happened to former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner when his boner photo ended up on the Internet.
