Happy Bisexuality Day! Why is it so Hard Being Bi?

September 23rd, 2012 is Bisexuality Day. We need more visible bisexual role-models and supporters so I’m doing my part! I dig everyone– dudes, chicks, people whose plumbing traditionally matches their gender, those who don’t match and everywhere in between.  Some may call that bisexual, some pansexual and some queer.  Whatever label you choose for yourself […]

Sex On Prime Time TV – Red Light District Tour on Travel Channel

The Travel Channel segment we filmed in May aired last night. Woo-hoo! It’s for a show called Extreme Tours and features some of the stops I visit hosting a Weird Chicago Tours Red Light District Tour.

Through the months of editing I kept wondering how they were going to dumb-down the sex tour for G-rated television. On the tour we don’t hold back. How was I going to do a sex toy demonstration, visit a BDSM Dungeon or do and say even a fraction of the stuff that normally occurs?

5 Reasons Why Female Condoms Rock My World

Female condoms feel AMAZING! As someone with a vagina I can personally say using female condoms feels a bit more like sex without a condom. The male lovers I have used them with say they feel especially out of this world to a penis. Many men say it’s close to the sensation of bare-backing. Female condoms feel so natural because they warm up to the temperature of the wearers body. As an added bonus, when used for man/woman sex, the clitoris can be stimulated by the condoms outer ring and the tip of the penis stimulated by the inner ring.

Why I Don’t Try To Prevent HIV (and don’t think you should either)

This was written by Wintersong and previously appeared on BarkingShaman.com.  It specifically applies to safety issues around play that involves blood product, such as play-piercing and cutting play. Although this writing specifically applies to blood-play scenarios in a BDSM context, sexually active people from all walks of life can benefit from giving it a read.  Please keep in mind, there […]

The Vanilla vs. Kink Crossover

When it comes to vanillas and kinksters there’s a real “us” and “them” attitude. It’s like the Sharks and the Jets (Yes, I’m showing my age . . . and my love for musicals. Quiet, or I’ll dance fight your ass.). If you’re one you can’t be the other. You should never let it be known you occasionally associate with the other side, right? Look how badly that turned out for Tony and Maria.

It’s also assumed if you’re on one side you think the other is less than worthy. Breaking it down to basic stereotypes, vanillas think kinksters are scary and weird. Kinksters think vanillas are unadventurous and boring.

The Low-Down on Ben Wa Balls + Eclipse Kegel Exerciser Review

Ben Wa balls, also known as Kegel exercisers, are all the rage.  We’ve known for over 1,500 years using them leads to improved vaginal health, better sex and stronger orgasms.  You’d think that would be enough to sell anyone.  But it wasn’t.  Aside from a surge in popularity in the 1970’s, Kegel exercisers largely remained […]

Jimmyjane Form 2 Review: I’m in Love!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYgcpkrw6Lc&feature=plcp[/youtube] Very rarely do I fall in love with a vibrator.  I’m picky, tough to arouse and since I’ve sampled some of the best toys out there, I have very high standards.  The Jimmyjane Form 2 is one of my favorite vibrators of all time (the other 2 are the California Exotics Silicone Rabbit and The […]

Ken & Sunny Milk a Prostate!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i4uYQm_9UU[/youtube]   In the video above Ken and I discuss some of the techniques from these prostate milking instructional videos we tried.  They were a great success!  We encountered some things we didn’t expect (most of them good!) and prostate massage is something we’ve since incorporated on a regular basis in our lovemaking. Recapping some of […]

Sex Toy Review: California Exotic Novelties Lia Pleaser 1

[youtube]http://youtu.be/GdQfRFHIPYU[/youtube]   Before I used the Lia ® Pleasers™ Pleaser 1, I was intrigued by the vibration options.  It offers 10 different settings/pulses.  It’s also waterproof and made from silicone, which are two big pluses in my book. When I first turned on the toy it was loud. Really loud. The noise is a definite […]

Trading Power for Pleasure? Popular Blogs Giving Horrible Advice to Kink Curious Women

Everyone’s jumping on the BSDM/50 Shades bandwagon. Every other internet news source claims to have the secret to creating the perfect 50 Shades experience but few provide accuracy or substance.  CaféMom/The Stir’s “Women Who Want ’50 Shades of Grey’ Sex Can’t Always Be on Top” is the latest in a string of blog posts giving […]

I Don’t Like You Much, Christian Grey

A few days ago, one of the local radio news stations interviewed us for their “50 shades of Grey” series. I was interested in talking about the book. One way or the other it’s an important book right now. It’s on paper, it’s got a cardboard cover, it’s written with an incessant and continual internal dialogue that makes you want to stick needles in your face, it’s on the bestseller list.

Yep, you read that correctly.  I’m defending 50 Shades of Grey. Whether you have read the book or not, there are a few things we need to […]

BDSM Without Sex?

When we hear words like fetish, kink, BDSM or S&M we immediately think sex.

BDSM is an acronym many in the mainstream consider synonymous with S&M. Technically it stands for bondage & discipline (BD), dominance & submission (DS) and sadism & masochism (SM). In other words– whatever it is you like that’s kinky, whether on the giving or receiving end, is included in the all encompassing label of BDSM.

Consensus: Grannies Hate Anal Sex!

This hilarious letter from a granny declaring to her college aged granddaughter “never do ANAL sex!” apparently wasn’t enough. Check out this latest video where 3 grandmothers watch the Kim Kardashian sex tape.  They don’t dig the butt sex either! This had me rolling on the floor! Please, no one tell my grandma I like […]

Diary of a Sex Clown: Life Lessons from a Clown Fetishist

Upon meeting a prospective partner in a coffee shop or at the corner bar, they often become “Coffee Shop Hottie” or “Corner Bar Dude” in casual conversation amongst friends. When I first met the love of my life, my best friend and I secretly referred to him as “The Sex Clown.”

How to Give Prostate Massage: Instructional Videos

Below are a few instructional videos on prostate massage we found helpful. In the first, Jennah Adams shows you how to milk the prostate with a gloved finger. In the second Brianna Beach demos with an Aneros Prostate Massager. The bottom video is the very first video I ever watched about prostate massage. I really like this last video because it shows the actual massage in more detail. Also, they are the cutest couple ever!

G-spot Stimulation Instructional Video

This is a wonderful video on how to stimulate the g-spot I have been referring people to for years. You can find clips of the video on various sites but this link has the full 30 plus minute instructional video. Warning, although this is an instructional video, the clip is housed on a porn site and is graphic in nature! It is certainly NOT suitable for work!

My Perfect Vagina is 8 Miles Wide

  [vimeo]http://vimeo.com/4704237 [/vimeo]   I was recently asked to articulate my opinion on cosmetic vaginal surgery, mainly labiaplasty.

Direct Assistance for People in Sendai, Japan

I’m breaking from my usual format to ask for your help.

Northwestern Fucksaw: Has The New Sexual Revolution Just Begun?

I continue to be bombarded with countless untruths about what occurred during our lecture on February 21st, 2011 at Northwestern University.  It has turned into a global game of telephone.  The story has become so distorted and plucked out of context that it no longer resembles the reality of what happened that day.  But that’s not the point of this […]

Jim Marcus Responds to Sun-Times re: Northwestern Fucksawgate

Neil Steinberg, of the Chicago Sun-Times published an editorial regarding Northwestern University Fucksawgate last night.  Jim Marcus e-mailed the response below to Neil but is unsure if it will be published in its entirety.  There’s a good chance it won’t be published at all. Unfortunately, the four of us have learned the hard way over the […]

Fucksaw at Northwestern University: The REAL Story

I was one of the four guest lecturers at Northwestern University– Ken Melvoin-Berg, Faith Kroll, Jim Marcus and myself.  In fact, that infamous fucksaw belongs to me.  I have been too crazy with media interviews, real life duties and such to write a proper response to the events at Northwestern University on February, 21st.  Some discussions […]


Better Handjobs With a Petting Ring?

  I think I need a petting ring. Am I being stupid? I was first exposed to petting rings exactly 24 hours ago. Upon first laying my eyes on one, I thought: 1. That’s dumb. 2. How do you text, drive or wipe yourself with one on? I know Xtina totally pees on her hand […]

I Want an Electric Blue, Rainbow Vagina

So, did they mean this to be funny? Or are they expecting me to put on my Birkenstocks, stop shaving my armpits and tell everyone how beautiful and empowering this is? Because as much as I love to celebrate the beauty of female genitalia, I can’t NOT laugh at this. Oh please, tell me the […]

The Top 8 Anti-Valentine’s Day Gifts

Will you be toasting the single life this Valentine’s Day? Are you thanking your lucky stars you’re rid of that narcissistic, psycho-babbling asshole once and for all?

Former Pumpkins Bassist, D’arcy Wretzky, Jailed

TMZ reported today former Smashing Pumpkins bassist, D’arcy Wretzky, was arrested in Michigan. Take a good look at the mug-shot. I know what you’re thinking: “OMG! Darcy, honey! What happened!? Are those little meth sores on your face? Thank science we can’t see your teeth!” Wretzky wasn’t jailed for what you might think, folks. She […]

Sex, Love and Food are Closely Tied

According to an article published this afternoon on Psychology Today, there is a very close relationship between love, sex and food. A few things crossed my mind while reading this article: A. Ah-ha! This is why my partner and I have gained so much weight in the past year! Not because we have absolutely no […]

Best. It Gets Better Video. Ever.

Comedian and improv performer Rebecca Drysdale hit a home run with her video for Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project. Best. ‘It Gets Better’ video. Ever. If you are a parent to a teen, you should have your child watch this.  Think the language is too harsh for a 14, 15 or 16 year old?  […]

o.b. Tampons on the Black Market

According to CNNMoney.com, you can currently fetch upward of $40 a box on the black market for o.b. tampons.  Last fall o.b. mysteriously vanished from store shelves only to pop up again this January in very limited quantities.  Ladies, if you are lucky enough to get your hands on a box of  o.b., think twice […]
