The Hot Octopuss Pulse II is billed as the world’s first “guybrator”, and claims to be fun to use flaccid or erect.

I Got My Friends to Try Female Condoms. Here’s What They Thought.

I know they’ve been ridiculed. I know some people think they’re ew. Thing is, I don’t believe in judging things on blind emotion. I believe in data. So I recruited two of my friends and their partners, all of whom have a really good sense of humor, to test some female condoms for me. » 5/27/15 6:37pm 5/27/15 6:37pm
