Most of us don’t wonder about how bugs have sex unless they’re doing it on our picnic blanket. In case you’re curious, though, Buzz Hoot Roar explains some of the ickier and more unusual facts about how some insects get it on, complete with fanciful illustrations. (Fair warning, some of the mating practices it covers are quite violent.)

A Vintage Vibe, Reviewed

vintage vibrator

As much as we might like the idea of a retro-looking baby blue toy, the idea of actually using an actual vintage vibrator is a little scary. Still, we were pretty excited to see that one brave toy reviewer decided to take this – ahem – scalp massager from the 1950s for a test drive.

“The Handy Hannah sits on the back of your hand and stays on via six springy metal straps. I found that my hand became red and chapped-looking with only a few minutes of use, and can’t imagine how uncomfortable I would feel after longer periods of use (or, say, while wearing the Vitalator to give head massages). Luckily, it’s powerful enough that longer periods aren’t necessary, even for the orgasmically challenged.”

Is This The Year’s Worst Sex?

The winner (“winner”) of the annual Bad Sex in Fiction award has been announced! Manil Suri takes it with his novel, The City of Devi, and this description:

“Surely supernovas explode that instant, somewhere, in some galaxy. The hut vanishes, and with it the sea and the sands – only Karun’s body, locked with mine, remains. We streak like superheroes past suns and solar systems, we dive through shoals of quarks and atomic nuclei. In celebration of our breakthrough fourth star, statisticians the world over rejoice.”

Given that erotica is ineligible for the coveted (or not) award, have you read a worse sex scene this year?
