Are You Good in Bed? Ask Your Phone.

The joke that there’s an app for everything is an old one. Well, now there’s an app for tracking your sexual performance. Spreadsheets  measures the duration of your sexual encounter, your thrusts per minute (TPM) and your “decibel peak” – that is, how loud you got. It also keeps a record of your averages and offers you the option of earning “achievements” by completing sexy challenges: having sex five times on a Sunday earns you the Lazy Sunday achievement, for instance.

Rachel Kramer Bussel, one of our favorite writers and editors of erotica, tried the app out, although she questioned the validity of the ways Spreadsheets measures sexual success.

“There are so many assumptions that go into Spreadsheets’ idea of “good” sex… For those who want to capture these measurements (with the option of sharing them on Facebook or Twitter), great. But I’m concerned that, in a culture that too often implies that the more sex you’re having, the happier you are, we assume that everyone’s erotic pleasure boils down to the exact same data points.”

Especially since measures like TPM and decibel peak are only really applicable to thrusting-centric sex between very vocal partners, Bussel encourages her readers to create their own set of sexual metrics, to measure their specific brand of good sex.

What do you think of Spreadsheets? Does it sound helpful? Fun? Completely useless? Is there another sex app that you like, or that you wish existed? Let us know!

It’s National Orgasm Day. (What are we supposed to do on the other 364 days of the year?) The Daily Beast is honoring this important day with a countdown of the top 10 orgasms in movies. In the clip above, Katherine Heigl discovers the joys of the Berman Astrea Vibrating Panties.

The folks at Huffington Post have compiled 15 politicians’ orgasm faces. The O face up above belongs to British lawmaker Ed Balls. Yes, that’s the man’s name.

If you get the Sundance Channel, be sure to tune in at 7 tonight for an encore of the season finale of Push Girls. The documentary series follows the lives and loves of Auti, Angela, Tiphany and Mia, four friends who are paralyzed from the neck or waist down. The Push Girls were recently featured in Cosmopolitan, discussing the joys and challenges of sex and wheelchairs. They’ve also got some pointers on sex and dating on their blog.

The Pleasure Chest is thrilled to make an appearance on tonight’s episode, helping to change perceptions of sex and disability. We hope you’ll tune in and watch with us.

Get Lucky (Updated)

Update: Durex claims they had nothing to do with these. 

A few weeks ago, we showed you some of our favorite condom designs. And now, we have a new favorite rubber: the Daft Punk condom.

The French dance duo partnered with Durex to make these promotional prophylactics hyping their ridiculously catchy single “Get Lucky.” (Push “play” up above to hear it just one more time.)

No word yet on whether the public will be able to get their hands on these condoms. So far, Diplo is one of the lucky few.
