So for the price of dinner and a movie for one (we're rolling solo here) you can head to your local sex shop and check out these top picks. And for those of you without access to an adult store that doesn't make your skin crawl, bounce online and patronize a boutique that deserves your business -- we love The Pleasure Chest, Babeland, Coco de Mer, and Good Vibrations.
The voluptuous porn star and fetish model has been a favorite among larger lady fans for years and these fake vagina makers have got on the BBW bandwagon by turning Shibari's lady bits them into something every man can come inside. (Ew.)
It's Valentine's Day in Brazil, and you know what that means:
Love and big butts. Armed robbery.
"Hysteria" was released in Los Angeles and NYC this weekend.
"What's 'Hysteria?'" you ask? Well it's a movie about the history of the vibrator, a film featuring real actors -- including Maggie Gyllenhaal, everyone's favorite "Secretary" -- and, surprisingly, void of the expected B.S. that would accompany a motion picture delving into a topic still too taboo for Oprah.
There are many of you out there who aren't obsessed with sex toys and the amazing sounds/fluids/emotions they evoke, and therefore probably don't give a fuck about where they came from.
But wait -- what if I told you vibrators were invented as a medical treatment for a health epidemic that once swept the nation? Interesting, right? Keep reading.
But the hapless bachelorette party shopper might have an even more difficult time finding all the penis-themed party accessories on her list if the Quincy city clerk has his way. Although a city employee who visited the store to check out the penises concluded that no ordinances had been violated, City Clerk Joe Shea told the Patriot Ledger that he'd like the adult items moved into a separate room, so customers - after showing they're over 18 years old - would have to request a perusal of IParty's racier merchandise.
WCVB Channel 5 Boston posted the story on its Facebook page, which generated entertaining comments both supporting the woman and deriding her:
"I worked there for four years," one woman said. "They really are discreet about it, and
those items are huge sellers. I know the stores I worked at were very good about
watching who went down those aisles, and the shelves are blocked and marked 'adult only.'"
And: "Well, I was in Iparty recently to buy some dancing penises, and I was offended by
all of the religious items in the Confirmation/First Communion aisle."
Last, but not least: "Out of place and disgusting and I'm no prude [sic]."
I wanted to see these novelty dancing penises for myself so I skipped on over to
iparty.com, but my visit proved penisless. The site only invited me to join its Birthday
Club, check out its Red Sox fan section and peruse Halloween costumes hella early. So I
can't say how big and offensive the dancing penises in Quincy's IParty might have been,
but regardless, the store didn't break any laws so the issue will likely be forgotten in a
week or two. Except that lady will probably shop elsewhere. Or maybe just until her next
Speaking of that lady and her balloons: I made my Confirmation in 10th grade, so if Mom
was shopping for "Dora the Explorer" balloons for a 15 year old's party, either the paper
reported some inaccuracies, or there's some mad infantilizing up in that household.
The strong and talented Mark Wahlberg, once known as the shirtless and muscular Marky Mark, was photographed running out of a Miami sex shop holding a fake fuckable vagina and extra-large set of anal beads.
Odds are he had some greater movie-related purpose for the purchase, but I prefer to assume that Wahlberg -- whom I'll refer to simply as Marky -- took a break from filming "Pain and Gain" with fellow meat head The Rock to pick up the rubber inflatable redhead and oversize bulbous butt plug for a cozy night in.
This should give a new meaning to the term "passion play."
Marc Angenent, a Dutch priest turned sex therapist, has started an online store for Christians who want to shop for sex toys, but don't want to be inundated with pornographic images and crude language.
