That Looks Like A Dick

by thepleasurechest

inflatable-penis

As the saying goes, “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.” That doesn’t stop our sex-obsessed minds from finding penises everywhere we look. And apparently we’re not alone. The Instagram account “That Looks Like a Dick” is devoted to the subliminal schlongs that surround us. With over 36,000 followers and, um, growing, the profile panders to the teenage boy in everyone.

penis-cat

The site came to our attention after being flagged by Instagram for violating their prudish Terms of Use. We’ve had similar problems for posting images of things that are actually supposed to remind you of dicks. So, we totally sympathize with the folks behind this account. To see a collection of suspiciously phallic everyday objects, check out their endlessly amusing Instagram page.

Know Your IX

1

by thepleasurechest

In 2010, a study by the Department of Justice found that 1 in 4 women will become a victim of rape while attending college. Given this reality, it’s disturbing that so many universities seem unwilling or unable to address rape culture on campus. Student activists from around the country are starting to push back, demanding more education about rape, more support for survivors and better training for people handling sexual assault claims.

Their cause got a boost in 2011 when the US Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights sent a letter to all colleges clarifying that “sexual harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.” The 1972 law has been at the center of numerous battles over equality in college sports, but is now fueling anti-rape organizing on college campuses.

ixThe activist collective Know Your IX has launched a national education campaign to help students understand their legal rights. They’re currently raising money to launch a website, a social media campaign and print advertising in student newspapers, before the start of the fall school year. If you’d like to help, check out their Indiegogo page and share the link to this video.

Fundawear. Turn On or Buzz Off?

0

by thepleasurechest

Last time on Turn On or Buzz Off, we introduced you to Buxxer, a tiny explorer with an unusually phallic, vibrating helmet. We didn’t have much information on this toy, but it was love at first sight for most of our readers. 72% of you wanted to blast off with Buxxer, while 28% launched the lil’ bugger into the Friend Zone.  Our hats off to Buxxer!

This week’s contender isn’t even a real product (yet). But it’s gotten so much online buzz, we just had to poll our readers (the buzz experts). Toss out your granny panties and banana hammocks, and feast your eyes on Durex Fundawear. Yes, these are vibrating underwear controlled by an iPhone app. Fundawear were dreamed up by the design folks at Durex Australia, giving new meaning to the “thunder from Down Under.”

Check out this promotional video in which a couple of adorable Aussies zing each other’s naughty bits with the swipe of a touchscreen. Is Fundawear the future of Skype sex?  Will it replace your reliable vibrating panties as the go-to lingerie for discreet diddling at the dinner table?  Even though it’s still a twinkle in some Australian designer’s eye, Fundawear certainly looks promising.

Here’s another video in which Fundawear’s creators peel back the cotton curtain to show you the hardware under there.

While Fundawear’s designers tinker with their intimate invention, we have some time to ponder the coming sex tech revolution. Can you see yourself shimmying into a pair of Fundawear? Or do you prefer your sexting tech to stop at your fingertips? Fundawear. Turn On or Buzz Off?
