Sex After 70

0

by Chelsea


If you haven’t checked out Lynn Brown Rosenberg’s recent article on Salon, “My Sexual Awakening at 70” or her interview on The Huffington Post, you absolutely should. She describes her quest for sexual enjoyment later in life, including a trip to The Pleasure Chest:

“I drove to a specialty shop in West Hollywood. The name alone gave me heart palpitations: Pleasure Chest. But I was quite surprised when I got there. The products were laid out nicely. The salesgirl was helpful and easygoing. I almost felt comfortable.

There were so many items to choose from!  I decided on something called Budding Bliss. I bought a porn DVD. Why not? If I was going to stoop, why not stoop all the way?”

Lynn Brown Rosenberg’s book, My Sexual Awakening at 70 will be coming out soon. If you’re interested in learning more about Lynn’s journey, please visit her website, www.lynnbrownrosenberg.com and sign up for updates.

For anyone in a similar situation, we’d also recommend Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Sex After 60 by Joan Price, who also speaks about senior sex as part of our video campaign, Sex is Back.

Toy Cleaning & HPV: a PSA

0

by Chelsea

toy cleaner

A new study from the Indiana University School of Medicine examined the possibility of spreading HPV through shared sex toys. The results are mostly unsurprising, but very worth reading. They had twelve women each provide vaginal samples and samples from two different vibrators – one made of thermoplastic elastomer and the second made of silicone – just after use, just after cleaning with soap, and after 24 hours. Here, we’ll break the results down for you. The percentages refer to the number of samples in which HPV was detected.

Vaginal samples: 75%

Vibrator 1 (thermoplastic elastomer)
After use: 89%
After cleaning: 56%
After 24 hours: 40%

Vibrator 2 (silicone)
After use: 67%
After cleaning: 44%
After 24 hours: None

Okay, let’s review what we’ve learned!

1) Elastomer toys (and, we can assume, other porous toys) should not be shared with a partner with whom you’re not fluid bonded (unless you’re using a barrier).

2) It looks like silicone toys are safe to share 24 hours after cleaning, but there’s still a risk of HPV transmission immediately after cleaning.

The second one surprised us, but we’re glad to know it. Now we just have more questions! Were they using hand soap or toy cleaner? Which brand? What would the numbers look like using different kinds of cleaners? Or with several more groups of women?

Isn’t science exciting? Find out more here.

Fish Will Eat Your Sex Toys

0

by Chelsea

cod and dildo

Bjørn Frilund, a Norwegian fisherman, caught a fish. Inside that fish was a vibrator.

“Fish eat all kinds of different things,” he told The Local. “And the dildo looks like what the fish eat. We have a kind of multi-coloured octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it.” 

What was the vibrator doing in the water in the first place? More importantly, what have we done to deserve this amazing story? If we do more of it, will we hear about a lion who adopts a blow-up doll and raises it as his own?

The Race to the Penis Museum

0

by Chelsea

File this under “… huh.” We just watched the trailer for The Final Member, a documentary about the proprietor of the world’s only penis museum and two potential donors, each of whom wants his penis to be the first human penis on display. We’re still a little confused, but in the way where we 100% want to see this movie now.

What do you think? Do you want to see this as much as we do?

Bubble Porn

by Chelsea

bubble porn

Sometimes, you want to watch porn, but you can’t because your church tells you that it’s wrong. What a bummer. Luckily, an ingenious Mormon invented “bubbling” – covering pictures of girls in bikinis with a pattern of circles that obscures their clothing, so that you can better imagine them naked. Thanks, technicality!

A new comedy video has taken bubbling a step further, using bubbling to turn innocent situations into smut. It’s not porn, but it’s still probably NSFW.
