Resolved to Do Your Kegels This Year?

1

by thepleasurechest

ami

We keep hearing from folks whose new year’s resolutions include doing their Kegel exercises. Kegels work out the PC muscle, which runs from the pubic bone to the tailbone and is intimately connected with orgasm. A stronger PC muscle means stronger orgasms, awesome muscle control (tightening or relaxing the vagina), better bladder control, and an easier time during childbirth.

Let’s backtrack for a moment: stronger orgasms. Dayenu.

If you’re one of the many folks who has resolved to stick to a vaginal workout routine this year, we’d like to direct you to the Pussy Fitness article from our how-to blog, for some helpful tips. Good luck!

Kink in the 1950s

catherine robbe-grillet

Catherine Robbe-Grillet, France’s most famous dominatrix, had a seriously sexy marriage. In 1958, her husband, writer and filmmaker Alain Robbe-Grillet, wrote up a contract – to which Catherine consented – detailing the rules and expectations for their BDSM scenes, in which he assumed the dominant role. He called it the Contract of Prostitution, since it included an agreement that he pay his wife “twenty thousand French Francs per session.” Recently, Catherine Robbe-Grillet, now a widow, allowed Vanity Fair to publish the contract in English, as translated by her current submissive partner, Beverly Charpentier.

The contract covers how long each scene will be (about two hours), and how often they’ll happen.

The date and time of each session shall be determined by mutual agreement of both parties. The date, once established, may be revoked by the husband alone. Furthermore, the husband may demand a minimum of three sessions per month.

The rest of the contract is kinky as hell, if written in adorably stilted legalese.

Furthermore, when her mouth or hands are required to fondle him, it shall be expected of her that she apply the greatest possible diligence to this task, regardless of whether the position in which she finds herself, or the torments to which she must submit, make the performance of her carnal duties arduous.

It also clarifies the payment element:

Monies thus earned shall be the wife’s sole separate property: she shall not be expected to give any account of their use and may even use them for amusements in which her husband takes no part, such as extravagant travel, any manner of personal acquisitions, costly gifts for her friends, etc…

Fifty Shades, eat your heart out.

Flash Mob Fakes Orgasms

when harry met sally flash mob

The flash mob extraordinaires of Improv Everywhere have done it again. This time, they called in a crowd to Katz’s Delicatessen, site of the infamous scene in When Harry Met Sally where Meg Ryan fakes an orgasm. First, two actors recreate the scene from the movie. Then, as the woman playing Sally starts faking an orgasm, lots of other diners join in. The result is… climactic.

Bite Your Partner (In A Sexy Way)

Do you ever want to learn a new skill but feel like you can’t put in the time? Isn’t it especially frustrating when it comes to sex? Like: how great would it be if you could tie your partner up in elaborate rope bondage, but UGH, that takes so much practice, and you still need to go to the laundromat and then get that thing notarized, and isn’t that why you bought cuffs in the first place?

It’s okay. Now isn’t always the right time to start a massive project. Don’t beat yourself up about it.

Luckily, it will only take you a few minutes to read “How to Chomp: Erotic Biting for Pleasure & Pain,” the excellent and comprehensive guide from Sugarbutch Chronicles. Then, you can pat yourself on the back and go put your new skills to work.
