Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.

Furries Invade Pittsburgh, Weird Al Goes Gaga & Gay Marriage Comes to NY

2

by thepleasurechest

Here are all the links we liked last week!

  • In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, or chained to a bed (lucky!) all weekend you probably already know that the state of New York legalized gay marriage late Friday night. You could read any number of articles about this historic vote, but we prefer this animated report from the geniuses at Taiwan News.

Here comes the bride.

  • Speaking of marriage, we wonder what the creator of this “feminist wedding dress” thinks about tying the knot.
  • A new study claimed that women’s “gaydar” functions best during ovulation, while another suggested that women are more likely to achieve simultaneous orgasm when their male partners are hot.

  • From hot to cold. Nearly 400 people in Wales stripped off and jumping into freezing water to break the world’s record for the largest skinny dip and to raise funds for cancer research.
  • Our friend Jamye Waxman reported on five reasons why porn might be teaching you bad sex. And they’re not the reasons you might think.
  • Despite what you’ve seen in movies, time travel and sex just don’t mix. That’s what a new study of brine shrimp (sea monkeys!) indicated anyways.

  • Cracked investigated the ancient art of the dick joke, showing that penis drawings and potty humor are older than we think.

  • Over 4,500 furries returned to Pittsburgh last weekend for the 6th annual Anthrocon. The city expected to make $5.3 million from the event, and hotels were packed, with attendees sleeping four to a room at the Westin. Woof!

  • “When Shubin was a 17-year-old high school student, his stepmother became pregnant with twins. Doctors advised her not to engage in sex throughout the high-risk pregnancy—so Shubin’s father, Steve, nosed around for an alternative form of release. When Steve couldn’t locate a realistic stand-in vagina on the market, he began drawing plans to craft his own.”

    Yes, that’s the origin story for the Fleshlight, the world’s most popular male masturbation toy.

 

  • Food porn? Queerty dug up this clip from “Cooking with Beefcake Too!” a bawdy cooking video from the 80s, hosted by a lecherous Jaye P. Morgan.
  • Crystal at Autostraddle shared her top 10 lesbian romance novels.
  • The Beaver Whisperer talked about STIs in the lesbian community.
  • As numerous gossip sites informed us, Jennifer Love Hewitt is a proud customer of our LA store. But where is this Pleasure Chest “bar” the paparazzi are talking about? We’re thirsty!

  • Last, but by no means least, Weird Al Yankovic released his long-awaited parody of Lady Gaga, proving that he can out-queer the reigning queen of pop.
