Why is science always trying to tell us that watching porn is bad for us? Continue Reading
The lack of adequate sex education around the world is alarming at times but a 22 year-old woman in Columbia has set a new standard for just how badly some people are lacking in quality sex education.
After experiencing pain in the abdominal area, the Columbian woman was admitted to hospital. According to Columbiareports.co, she sheepishly told the nurses that she had stuck a potato up her vagina when she was advised by her mother that the potato would prevent pregnancy. Continue Reading
Ah, enterprising young prudes, fighting the good fight to make sure the unwashed masses have the least pleasure possible during sexual intercourse.
We thank you for your hard work!
Recently, I did a post about Galactic Cap a new style of condom that seems wholly ineffective and will probably never truly catch on because, though they might prevent unwanted pregnancies, they leave every part of your penis except for the tip exposed and dawg, you can still transfer STIs through your shaft.
So now we are presented with the polar opposite of the Galactic Cap, a condom so invasively safe that you may as well not even bother having sex.
Check out this link for the concept drawings for this fucked up travesty of a condom.
The basic concept? A full thong with a condom attached on the front of it, sort of like a strap-on. The device offers complete coverage – your entire penis, as well as testicles will be covered in latex. Yup, that’s right, we’re entering into the age of ball-condoms. Isn’t the future wonderful?
The craziest thing is that this invention has been garnering a lot of support in China, both financial in otherwise, with investments totalling over 300k USD so far. So people are interested in wearing a full strap-on condom.
I’ll give them points for creativity, but I’ll subtract points for everything else. This thing just seems insanely uncomfortable and unwieldy. There’s obviously something to be said for safe sex and full coverage against STIs and unwanted pregnancy, but I just can’t see dudes lining up to buy this thing.
Men have a hard enough time remembering to wear condoms in the first place, and now it’s expected that they’ll take the time to put on a full undergarment? Seems like wishful thinking.
Anyways, we’ll see how this goes. Chances are this is just another failed attempt at re-marketing the condom. But you never know!
Before I ever set foot in the Sex.com offices, I had always assumed that nobody knew anything about sex. Now, after writing sex tips and giving sex advice to the readers of the Sex.com Blog for nearly two years, I’ve realized that I was wrong.
People actually do know a lot about sex. Unfortunately 99% of what people think they know about sex is wrong.
Who is to blame for the perpetuation of misinformation? I blame the inadequate sex education most people receive in school. The only thing I remember from sex education in school was an animated short with a voiceover saying, “Penises are a lot like noses. They all come in different shapes and sizes.” And the only reason I remember that lesson is because it maybe me feel better about my own disfigured penis and while the voiceover was comparing penises to noses, a million different animated penises were flying across the screen all wearing the classic mustache and glasses disguise to make them more like noses? That image of millions of penises wearing that hilarious disguise still haunts me to this day.
to help you forget about all those penises wearing the mustache and glasses disguiseto help you have more pleasurable, safer sex, I’d like to talk about the Top 10 Misconceptions About Sex. So if you’re ready to find out that you’ve been doing sex wrong all these years, continue reading.
10. Men don’t fake orgasms
Faking orgasms isn’t just for women. Men do it too. Of course, male fake orgasms are slightly trickier than their female counterpart because men discharge when they cum. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
If you’re wondering why men fake orgasms, it’s simple. Not being able to orgasm can make your partner feel inadequate and sad. So it’s better just to grunt and make a stupid face when they’re through thrusting to preserve their partner’s sexual confidence.
9. Oral sex and anal sex are safer than vaginal sex.
NOPE! Almost all STIs can be passed on through unprotected vaginal sex can also be passed on through unprotected oral and anal sex. Herpes, warts, gonorrhea, hepatitis, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV can all be contracted orally or anally. Oral sex is certainly less risky compared to vaginal and anal sex, but just for your own safety wear a condom!
8. Oral sex and anal sex don’t count as real sex.
Some people seem to think that having oral sex or anal sex instead of vaginal sex is a way of circumventing losing their virginity and still being able to have sex. Absolutely not true. “Sex” is in the name, therefore if it’s in your mouth or your ass, you’re having sex.
7. Vaginas all look a likeI blame porn for this one, because porn rarely features any girls with large labias or anything. For whatever reason, almost all the vaginas you see in porn are the same, which is not indicative of vaginas around the world. This lack of vaginal variety in porn has led to more and more women getting labiaplasty surgery to make their vaginas look “normal” when in fact there’s nothing wrong with their vaginas.If penises come in all shapes and sizes like noses, then vaginas are like lips…THEY COME IN DIFFERENT SHAPES AND SIZES.
6. Two condoms are better than one.NO. I understand why people assume that two condoms are better than one, because two of everything is better than one almost always. Double the condom, double the protection. Well, you’re totally wrong if you think that.”Double-bagging” can increase the friction of the latex, making them more likely to rip or tear. One condom (male condom or female condom) is all you need.
5. Pulling out is an effective method of birth control.According to this article, more and more people are pulling out as a means of contraception. THAT’S REAL STUPID.Withdrawal is significantly less effective at preventing pregnancy as compared to other methods. Now, if you’re pulling out because a lifetime of watching porn has given you an obsession with cumshots, then by all means do it. But don’t assume for one second that pulling is a substitute for condoms or the pill.
4. Penis size is important.
ThoughtCatalog.com asked 50 women about their thoughts on penis size. Of the 50, only 6 said that bigger was better.
Truth is, size only matters to people that let it matter. Motion, rapport, depth of intimacy, lovemaking skills, and/or positions often have more to do with partner satisfaction than size. But if you’re still concerned about your penis size, then you should read this: Satisfying Women with Your Tiny Penis.
3. Women can achieve an orgasm from penetration alone.
Most women don’t achieve an orgasm from vaginal sex alone. It’s possible for sure, but according to data from a 2009 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, most women (about 2/3) have orgasms when they have sex, and this could be from vaginal, clitoral, breast or other kinds of stimulation.
The key is diversity of stimulation. Women are sophisticated creatures and if you want to make one cum then you’re going to have to explore all of her erogenous zones.
2. The clitoris is a fun button that will give women instant orgasms.This basically the same point as #3, but it’s worth stating again. You need to diversify your attention to all areas of a woman’s body. You can’t just go storming straight to the clitoris and hope for results. Though stimulating the clitoris is never a bad idea, but too much attention could be more painful than pleasurable.So diversify! Have some fun! Don’t be so simple minded when it comes to sex.
1. Vaginas are not Fleshlights.What do I mean when I say, “Vaginas are not Fleshlights”?Well, though Fleshlights look and feel like vaginas, you should know that they aren’t the same. Fleshlights are a male masturbation toy. When you use a Fleshlight, you should feel totally free to fap yourself silly, pounding away at that fake vagina. However, you can’t just jackhammer a vagina. Women know when you’re using their bodies to masturbate and they don’t like.
I know it’s tempting to do what that dude in the GIF above is doing to Stoya, but it’s not good sex. Simply pounding away, using a real live vagina as if it were a common Fleshlight is a surefire turnoff. There’s no nuance, no build-up, no feeling when you’re using a vagina like a masturbatory aid. It also signifies sexual inexperience or selfishness, which are not very attractive qualities. Rather than mindlessly thrusting away, you want to vary your speed throughout the sex. Gauge your partner’s response and let it inform your movements. If she asks you to go harder, then go harder. But if the moment calls for a slower approach, then slow it down. After all, you’re not alone, you’re working together to have great sex.
Obviously, there are more than 10 misconceptions about sex out there. In fact, it was tough to decide which 10 misconceptions about sex I would attempt to clear up for you today. Hopefully, you’ve learned something useful. But if you have a question about sex or you need some advice, you can always…

Condoms are long overdue for an update. I mean, we have iPhone and iPod and iPad and iMac now. Why haven’t condoms evolved with all these other things? Condoms are just as important to living a happy life as any Apple product. And maybe an update on the classic condom is just what we need to get people using them without hesitation and therefore everybody be having safe sex and having a real good time.
That’s why researchers Fraz Peer and Andrew Quitmeyer from Georgia Tech have launched an IndieGogo campaign to get their prototype for a digital condom off the ground and on the dicks of the condom-haters everywhere. Continue Reading
Buying a bouquet of flowers is a Valentine’s Day staple, but since no one buys flowers for any occasion other than Valentine’s Day or funerals, it’s tough to know which flowers to buy especially because flowers all have different meanings.
Just look at roses! Every single color of rose has its own meaning. A single red rose means, “I love you.” Pink roses mean, “Thank you.” Yellow roses mean, “Joy.”
Since a new study by RetailMeNot.com showed us earlier this week that two-thirds of men and 30 percent of women would rather have hot, passionate sex on Valentine’s Day rather than get a gift, you need a bouquet of flowers that say, “Let’s Fuck.” And nothing says, “Let’s Fuck” like a bouquet of condoms.
All you need is green pipe cleaners, colored tape, condoms, and this demo video on how to make a bouquet of condoms:
Giving your sweetheart a bouquet of condoms will not only impress your significant other (because everyone loves a homemade gift) but you’ll also be well prepared for the marathon of hot, passionate sex you’re about to have.
Just two things to remember.
#1. Make sure the condom hasn’t ripped or been punctured in the construction process before you use it.
#2. Think of me when you’re reaching for a condom from the bouquet and having the best Valentine’s Day sex of your life.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Falcon Studios may have just saved the porn industry from the oppression of condoms. But it’s not going to be easy.
For their latest release, California Dreamin’ 1, Falcon Studios is planning to digitally remove condoms in post-production so that the movie looks as though the performers were bareback the entire time.
Anyone who has done any post-production, digital doctoring of images knows that this task won’t be easy but if it works, the porn industry could be saved! Continue Reading
To this day, I can’t believe that people (I’m looking at you, men) think that wearing a condom ruins sex. The minor inconvenience of putting on a condom before you get up in them guts does not even compare to the inconvenience of contracting an STI or getting a woman pregnant.
By in large, the reason men hate condoms so much is because they don’t know their condom size! All the usual complaints about condoms such as “They’re too tight!”, “They’re too loose!”, “They keep slipping off or breaking!”, and “They don’t feel good!” can all be fixed just by knowing what your condom size is.
Just think, if you didn’t know your shoe size and you just tried wearing any size of shoe, you’d probably think that walking barefoot was the way to go. Would you be willing to risk stepping on rusty nails and other garbage because walking around barefoot feels better? Probably not. So then why are you risking going bareback?
Follow these 3 simple steps to determine your condom size and I guarantee that sex with a condom will feel just as good as sex without a condom. Continue Reading
Condomania.com, the USA’s original online condom store (apparently), has just released a state by state comparison of penis sizes by compiling their sales data.
So which state in the USA has the biggest penises?
Here is the list of all 50 states from biggest penises to smallest: Continue Reading
In March 2013, Bill Gates launched a campaign called the “Condom Challenge“.
The current problem with condoms is that they have been pretty much the same for hundreds of years. To ensure that lives are saved by having safer sex, the Gates Foundation offered a grant worth $100,000 to anyone who could come up with a sexy new redesign for condoms. After reviewing 500 submissions, the Gates Foundation has found 11 grant-worthy proposals for a new condom.
In other words, say goodbye to those regular, old condoms you hate so much because sexy, new condoms are coming very soon!
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for development of all the new condom designs to be underway before we can know more about them. But the Gates Foundation did reveal two new designs they are currently funding. Want to know more? Continue Reading
A few days ago, I was reading an XBiz special report called Porn & Condoms: Adult Industry Stands Divided, which obviously surmised the current, “Should condoms be mandatory on porn shoots?” debate within the porn industry.
Since pornstar Cameron Bay contracted HIV, the debate has come to the forefront of industry news.
The belief is that Cameron Bay wouldn’t have contracted HIV if condoms were mandatory on porn shoots.
I’m not here to discuss whether or not condoms should be mandatory. If we were to talk about condoms in porn, I would say that Nina Hartley has it figured it out already. Nina opposes the mandatory condoms in porn, favouring a “condoms optional” policy.
Last November, the people of Los Angeles county voted to make condoms mandatory in all porn scenes filmed in their jurisdiction.
Almost the entire porn industry was against the mandate because condoms can be impractical while filming porn scenes and also production companies would be forced to pay lots of money and jump through hoops to get the necessary film permits.
As usual, the public wasn’t sympathetic to the plight of their local pornographers. They thought, “Well, porn studios would have to pay more…but to enforce this law, the county will have to make condom inspector jobs and we’ll be promoting safe sex at the same time…What could possibly go wrong?”
Let me tell you, a lot could go wrong… Continue Reading
Microsoft tycoon Bill Gates has finally come to the realization that we here at the Sex.com Blog figured out a long time ago…
Macs are way cooler
Condoms need a makeover. He believes that a new type of condom will increase health benefits world wide. And Bill Gates is willing to put his money where his mouth is. Bill Gates is prepared to give away a $100,000 grant to whoever can create the next generation condom.
Austin, Texas is one of Sex.com’s favorite cities because South by Southwest just keeps getting better and better.
This year’s SXSW is going to be the best one yet, not only because the Arbutus Records show case is going to be very good but BangWithFriends (the people behind the Facebook Friend sex app) has introduced a new app specifically for hooking up at SXSW. It’s called Bang With SXSW and it’s going to make this year’s festival even more of a crazy, drunken sex romp.
Earlier this week, we found out that the average woman spends approximately $2,663.02 on her vagina every year. Learning how much vaginas cost made us wonder, how much do men spend on penis maintenance annually?
Our initial guess was anywhere from $0 to $300. But that was just a guess. Now, we’re happy to announce that we’ve figured out how much you might be spending on your penis. And it’s shocking…
Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and until now everybody knew that sex without a condom was better.
According to a new study from Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion, condoms making sex unpleasurable is a myth. The origins of the myth are unknown but it’s probably been perpetuated by teenage boys who then grow up to be misinformed men with illegitimate children and venereal diseases.
Sex researcher, Debby Herbenick, found that only 28% of men and 22% of women used condoms. But here’s where it gets interesting. Reports of sexual arousal, ease of erection, overall pleasure, and orgasm were almost identical to the people who don’t wear condoms! We’ve been tricked by an anti-condom conspiracy!
Last week, the entire adult industry made its annual trip to Las Vegas to hand out some awards and put the wheels in motion for new business deals. Why I was “banned” from the “event” is beyond me. If my friend’s future brother-in-law Alan didn’t roofie us by accident, we would have found my friend Doug on the roof of the hotel a lot sooner…but that’s a story for another time.
This year’s trip to Las Vegas had a different connotation. Since Measure B passed in November, people have questioned whether or not the core of the industry will move from Southern California to Las Vegas. After all, the industry’s biggest conventions and award ceremonies are held in Las Vegas. It would be like moving out of your regular house to live at your beach house.
Industry heads are currently trying to appeal Measure B. If a move were to happen, it wouldn’t happen until the appeal was rejected. That didn’t stop the Las Vegas Sun from weighing the pros and cons of moving the multi-million dollar industry to Las Vegas.
As you may have heard, there was an election last night and it was pretty exciting. Here are a few things that you need to know:
- Barack Obama will be the President of the United States for another four years.
- Marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado.
- Measure B passed in Los Angeles County
The first two bits of news might make you real happy or real sad, either way it doesn’t matter because Measure B passing effects us all in the worst possible way. Measure B requires porn actors to wear condoms on movie sets!
Measure B is a proposed mandate that would force all adult performers to wear condoms in their films. Despite the syphilis scare that happened this summer, the adult industry is very serious about blood tests for performers. Why should city health officials be sent to sets throughout Los Angeles to make sure performers are wearing condoms? Is it not the responsibility of the industry and the performers to ensure their health and safety?
Give the kids and seniors their goddamn flu shots and stay off the set.
Mind you, it’s never a bad idea to wear a condom when you’re having sex in your personal life. Sex in your personal life doesn’t require monthly blood-tests so it’s best to be safe.
Condoms were exclusively used by sailors for the longest time because they would roam from port to port bedding strange, exotic women and men. And then the 80’s happened. Condom use extended to general public. Now whether it’s a one night stand or another night with your wife, condoms should be standard procedure by today’s standards.
Though no one will contest that condoms can be frustrating because sex doesn’t feel quite as good or struggling with the wrapper can be a race against time, Brazzers has just released a PSA starring James Deen that reminds us all that the piece of mind makes condoms totally worthwhile.
Seeing James Deen flatline in a hospital bed with sores all over his body will make you rethink every time you chose to forgo wearing a condom. The other side of the story where he gets married and lives happily ever after thanks to wearing a condom that first night does not work as well. A healthy relationship is a lot more work than rolling latex down the shaft of a penis. Good thing the fear conveyed in the other story is so effective.
Get Rubber! is Brazzers’ first campaign of community outreach. The rationale for releasing this PSA, Brazzers explains, “As members of the adult industry, we take part in creating a fantasy for our viewers. Along with being leaders in what we do, comes the task of being responsible with our audience.”
Because condoms are expected, they can often be overlooked. Let this be a reminder that STIs are a real threat, so if you’re going to have sex be smart and wear a condom. It’s not just for sailors.
