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.

Full frontal “dudity,” unambiguous gayness, sexy cow costumes & more!

1

by thepleasurechest

OK, so we took Friday off and never got around to wrapping last week’s best sex links. Here they are…

This is your brain on orgasms.

  • A study in the American Psychological Association journal Emotion reported that women find brooding and proud men more sexually attractive than happy ones. Supposedly, it works the opposite for dudes, to whom happy and confident women are a turn off. Really? The good news for gender parity is that both men and women find shame sexy.

  • On SNL, two bros went ambiguously gay for Lady Gaga.

  • It’s not just Gaga. Any fan of hip hop has heard the expression, “No homo.” Sketch comics Retar Crew went viral with this video on the gay panic in music.

  • People.com editor Janet Mock came out as a transgender woman, and told trans teens that it gets better for them too.

  • A fan of the indie band Bad Lamps made this music video entirely from non-XXX scenes from porn movies. We think it’s kinda sweet.

  • It’s still perfectly legal, however, to do this on a subway in New York City.
  • Hot, right? Rachel Rabbit White wonders why some women still find male bodies gross. And Jezebel asks why women’s bodies are sexualized in Hollywood movies, while full frontal “dudity” is usually a punchline.
  • Giving us fond memories of fetish subcultures before the advent of the interwebz (yes, we are that old), Dangerous Minds dug up some flyers from the Mary Tyler Moore Masturbation Society.

Got milk?

  • Speaking of fetishes, we learned a new word last week: inflatophilia. And the costumes are so cool, we’ve got fetish envy!

  • Finally, we don’t know if there’s a Grammy category for best song about anal sex, but we think Sherry’s Vine’s Adele parody deserves some kind of prize.

Best of the Chest

0

by thepleasurechest

Here’s what we liked, shared, Tweeted, Tumbld and LOLd about in the week’s sex stories.

  • SNL reunited the Ambiguously Gay Duo in an episode called “The Dark Clenched Hole of Evil.” Very funny, even though, as Queerty points out, this fabulous franchise need some schooling in male bisexuality.

Speaking of ambiguous gayness…

  • Another watershed in gay rights: Cuba in transition. Check out this slideshow from the island nation’s 2nd annual Miss Trasvesti drag beauty pageant.
  • After tabloid reports that an A-list celebrity is being sued for spreading herpes, Salon explored the awkwardness of disclosing (and not disclosing) one’s STD status. Honesty, no matter how difficult, is always the best policy.
  • While we’re on the subject of lying, no good men, WTF made us LOL.

Want some bling for your thing?

A Cat-5 o' nine tails?

  • To accessorize those naughty fantasies, Boing Boing suggests this whip for all the kinky computer nerds out there.

  • “My vagina prefers male pronouns.” So begins this provocative poem/affirmation from vlogger Simon.

  • Feminist Frequency examines the Evil Demon Seductress in popular culture. Sexy? Or just sexist?

  • Artist Debbie Grossman: “Imagine an America in which all-female families survived the Great Depression raising children and farming homesteads in the absence of men (and in the absence of today’s detractors to gay marriage.)”
  • WebMD reported on the health benefits of sex. In response, Dr. Ruth tweeted: “I hate when people ask me how many calories are burned during sex. If that’s a reason for having sex, then you’re missing out big time.”

Today Show tips

by thepleasurechest

Cosmo columnist Molly Triffin was on the Today Show this morning with some tips on stepping up your sex life. We’re a little groggy that early in the AM, so luckily Hulu has this little clip to show us what we missed. Molly gave a shout-out to our Candy Bra & G-String, but we also want to remind you that some dudes have a sweet tooth too! Also featured were the KY cooling and warming lubes, but we’d like to recommend Sliquid Stimulating O Gel for its organic, vegan formula, which is better for those with sensitive bits. And yes you can get those Bijou Rhinestone Pasties right here!

Bill O’ Reilly is into Doin’ “it” Live!

by thepleasurechest

Pugnacious pundit and noted loofah enthusiast Bill O’ Reilly fancies himself an anti-porn crusader and defender of traditional values. This morning, however, the Boston Phoenix published a column revealing that while a grad student at Boston University in 1974, O’ Reilly penned a lengthy, and very sympathetic interview with Gerard Damiano.  The legendary director of Deep Throat was in Boston to promote the release of his second feature Devil in Miss Jones and O’ Reilly took Damiano out to lunch, to talk about the porn business, Linda Lovelace and Hollywood.

This is not the first time that O’ Reilly’s fixation on porn has gotten attention. His 1998 novel Those Who Trespass contains some steamy dialogue, including this line: “Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up.” You can even hear the author read his steamy prose in these audiobook clips generously hosted by the Village Voice. We look forward to the Fox News host excoriating  his youthful self for being a smut peddler on the next episode of The Factor. (Well, actually we don’t.) Instead we imagine things look a little more like this around O’ Reilly’s studio today.
