In response to the Senate passing H.R.1865, an anti-online sex trafficking bill that has the potential to seriously harm consenting, adult sex workers, Craigslist has shuttered its all of its personals sections. Even the platonic ones.
For the vast majority of living things, there’s nothing particularly sexy about sex. It’s mostly just an exhausting and dangerous hassle (just ask the insects who get their body parts stabbed or bitten off while mating).
There are a lot of terrible sex scenes in mainstream games. There are also a handful of good ones, as seen in games like The Witcher 3. But even in that game’s case, creating believable sex scenes wasn’t easy. Video game technology is great if you want characters to make war; not so much if you want them to make love.
The ancestor to pretty much all boning and photosynthesizing organisms might have been fossilized in Canadian rock. The only trouble is that scientists aren’t sure how old that fossil is.
For those of you already weary of the Christmas cheer, a new study published this week in Scientific Reports might put some pep in your step: It suggests the holiday spirit gets people more in the mood for boning, no matter where you live in the world and when you might celebrate it.
One 63-year-old man had so many prostate orgasms that he couldn’t stop.
If there’s one trick that terrible sex-ed programs rely on to scare teens out of boning, it’s the idea that only abstinence can keep you safe from spiritual ruin and disease. But a new study published in The Journal of Infectious Disease seems to undercut even the basic premise of that scare tactic: Being a virgin…
Few things sow distrust faster than speculation that apps and internet-connected devices are surveilling their own users in secret. Facebook mining your browsing habits to serve ads is one thing. But what if you found out your sex toy was taping you?
Despite what you may have read, Twitter has not rolled out new rules banning porn or pictures of lingerie across its platform.
On a recent trip to Berlin, Alex Lomas’ acquaintance posed him a challenge: Can you find a Bluetooth-enabled butt plug in the wild, and can you turn it on without its owner’s help? Lomas, a penetration tester with the British cybersecurity firm Pen Test Partners, pulled out his phone, consulted the detection app…
In the first study of its kind, researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine have shown that people who use pot have sex about 20 percent more often than those who do not. It’s an eye-opening finding, but a classic case where correlation doesn’t necessarily imply causation.
When I give the dating app LoveFlutter my Twitter handle, it rewards me with a 28-axis breakdown of my personality: I’m an analytic Type A who’s unsettlingly sex-focused and neurotic (99th percentile). On the sidebar where my “Personality Snapshot” is broken down in further detail, a section called “Chat-Up Advice”…
Comic book relationships have always been kind of cheesy, charming throwbacks to the good old days when people married their high school sweethearts or had random meet-cutes, like, on the subway. While those things do still happen, dating in the 21st century means that you’re probably on an app, and the same is now…
There are three things in life that I love: Sex toys, technology, and repurposing stuff in my home so that I can someday achieve my goal of breaking Etsy and/or Pinterest with my doubtlessly charming Brooklyn-based craft projects.
Damn! Just when someone has a great, not at all weird and disturbing idea, the man has to come in and crush it.
Online dating apps, pornography, advertising, and the continued existence of the human race all testify to a healthy, ongoing interest in sex among human beings, despite the fact that millennials appear to be having less of it. Until the day pills or radiation extinguish the last embers of human horniness, sex will…
Have you ever actually considered how the mechanics of having sex with a fish-person (mermaid or otherwise) might actually work? Guillermo del Toro certainly has, and we’re all going to get a chance to see how he conceptualizes it in his upcoming adult fairy tale The Shape of Water.
Scientists spend their days hypothesizing, experimenting, and analyzing in order to find evidence to better understand our strange Universe. Sometimes, that requires playing the didgeridoo and then falling asleep.
As of now, Netflix’s heady, sexy, inclusive scifi thriller Sense8 is basically dead—may it rest in peace. But, if the Wachowski sisters are willing to consider this rather interesting proposal from xHamster, there’s a chance that the series may find a new—and more erotic—second life on one of the internet’s…
Liz Klinger admits that the Lioness isn’t the world’s greatest vibrator. It won’t work perfectly for every person who uses it. “No vibrator is for everybody. You’d have to have, like, a Play-Doh thing that has a motor in it,” she told me in a crowded coffee house at lunch hour.
