Oh Joy Sex Toy!

We’re loving Oh Joy Sex Toy, Erika Moen’s series of sex toy reviews in comic form.

oh joy sex toy i'll draw them

She and her husband review the toys and then she writes and draws very thorough reviews that incorporate their personal experiences with the toys, recommendations for who might enjoy them, and demonstrations by fictional “masturbateers.”

We really liked her review of the Lelo Ina 2, which she recommends to people who like rabbit style toys, even though they’re not her cup of tea.

Informed, adorable comics about sex toys: what’s not to love?

Shy Freaks: Exploring BDSM for the Introvert with Mollena Williams
Wednesday, October 30th @8-10pm FREE!

If the thought of BDSM action gets you hot and bothered but the thought of dropping trou in the middle of a dungeon full of fellow kinksters leaves you cold and queasy, you just might be a shy freak! This class explores finding your own boundaries, and will offer some tools for self-assessment. How do you know if you should push your shyness, or let it sit? What do you do if your partner is a flaming show-off and you like nothing more than a quiet scene at home? And how can you overcome what YOU want to overcome without succumbing to potentially damaging scene pressures? All of these questions and more will be explored in a lively and interactive format where even the shyest freaks get their say!

For folks looking to meet dates online, there are a stunning array of options. You can join a service designed specifically for a religion, a hobby, a fetish – the list goes on. Now, there’s also a dating site for ghosts.

GhostSingles.com offers users the chance to search profiles (by gender, age, and manner of death) and chat with their fellow dead. The profile for a user called Phantom4u, age 134, reads:

Stinky Foo & Bartholo: Clown Sex at Gloryhole

electro clowns 2

We are thrilled to be bringing on Stinky Foo and Bartholo for this year’s Gloryhole party. If you’re afraid that the live XXX gloryhole show will be a little too tame for your eclectic sexual tastes, look no further than this pair of payasos, who will be bringing some hot electro play and serious clown fucking.

Stinky Foo and Bartholo are anything but funny.  They don’t tell jokes or do parodies or go to kids’ parties. If they had to work in a circus, it would be a fetish circus. They are known as the biggest clown fucker couple in L.A.

Stinky and Bartholo have performed all around town at gay bars and LGBT events, often alongside The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, raising money for various charities and nonprofits. (All of their profits are donated.) They take pride in changing the minds of the clown-fearing by creating a playful, kinky atmosphere that engages the spectators completely.

You can find Stinky Foo and Bartholo in the gloryhole on the night of the party.

Porn Without Porn

1

by thepleasurechest

cameron porn

In response to British prime minister David Cameron’s crackdown on internet pornography, freelance ad writers Henrik Düfke and Felipe Montt created Cameron Porn, a collection of “free sex videos: fully adapted to the U.K. porn ban.” (“Porn ban” is not entirely accurate, but these videos are meant to be compatible with the proposed internet content filters.) What this actually entails is an assortment of clips from particularly silly XXX movies, with any sex or nudity ham-handedly edited out. As far as political protests go, it makes for some fun viewing.

Please enjoy “A Handy Electrician” at work, in your living room, at a coffee shop, in a library, or anywhere else where actual porn would be inappropriate.

Top 10 Worst Sex Scenes

by thepleasurechest

worst sex scenes

“Slither slither slither slither went the tongue…”

We love good erotica, but we won’t deny that there’s a unique pleasure in reading really, really bad smut. If you understand the joy of wondering, “Why would he use that metaphor? Why would anyone ever use that metaphor?” then you’ll get a kick out of The Telegraph’s compilation of the top ten worst sex scenes in modern literature.

Part of what makes this fun is that the authors whose work is being singled out are widely-published and even celebrated: the quote above is from Tom Wolfe. We feel okay poking fun at Tom Wolfe in a way that we wouldn’t feel if we were laughing at a stranger’s slash fan fiction.

Of course, bad sex – like all sex – is subjective. Still, “like a lepidopterist mounting a tough-skinned insect with a too blunt pin he screwed himself into her” is, at the very least, memorable.
