THE UNAUTHORIZED VERSION: TOP SPIN 4


La pub censurée de Top Spin 4 by Eastchild

Earlier today, a commercial featuring tennis superstar Serena Williams, for the upcoming Top Spin 4, began making the rounds online. And it seemed hardly anything special… till word got out that the game’s publisher, 2K Sports, does NOT want anyone seeing it.

Kotaku considers it NSFW, but I honestly see nothing all that offensive. It’s no more titillating than your average Lady Gaga music video. Too be honest, the whole thing’s a bit too Gaga-ish if you ask me. Anyhow, the advertisement was originally posted by Williams’s co-star, which got 2K HQ quite upset, and has since been yanked. Their statement:

“As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues. This video is not part of the title’s final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized.”

The not ready for prime time commercial has since made a return thanks to folks who saved the original (the above is courtesy of Kotaku, which seems the least likely party to lose their grip on it). Perhaps it’s a big to do about nothing and someone simply gave up the goods before the time was right. Or maybe there’s something else going on? We’ll update the situation if there are any developments.

MASTURBATION HELPS PROCREATION! WHO KNEW?

Since Christine “I’m Not a Witch” O’Donnell is campaigning for the U.S. Senate and not the directorship of the Kinsey Institute, maybe we should give her a pass when it comes to her views on sex and, specifically, masturbation. But that would be a mistake: the stakes are simply too high, going all the way up the very survival of our species. For while O’Donnell crusaded against masturbation in the mid-1990s, denouncing it as “toying” with the organs of procreation and generally undermining baby making, the facts are to the contrary. Evidence from elephants to rodents to humans shows that masturbating is—counterintuitively—an excellent way to make healthy babies, and lots of them. No one who believes in the “family” part of family values can let her claims stand.

The science is straightforward. Whenever a behavior is common in the animal kingdom, biologists suspect it has an adaptive function. That is, the behavior enabled individual animals to survive better and leave more offspring than animals that did not engage in the behavior. As a result, genes for the behavior spread throughout that population until it became essentially ubiquitous. And so it is with autoeroticism, which is common—really common. As the Science in Seconds blog noted this week, what with “spanking the monkey,” “charming the snake,” and “freeing willy,” a remarkable number of the slang terms for pleasuring oneself refer to animals. That reflects reality: the practice has been documented in Japanese macaques, gibbons, baboons, chimps, elephants, dogs, cats, horses, lions, donkeys, “and walruses that manage to flog the bishop with their fins.” (Bonus for clicking on the blog link above: excellent photo of an elephant in flagrante dilecto.)

BEST NEW SEX POSITION


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

The Sex Shrink says...


It may not have the most becoming name, but "the turtle" is a marvellous variant on rear entry.

Have her kneel with her knees close together, leaning over so her face rests on the carpet and her arms reach round to her feet.

It is a naive pose in which she's wonderfully exposed. Add to the sense of vulnerability and heighten sensation by blindfolding her.

Stroke across her back with the balls of your finger tips, teasing her skin. Kiss the back of her neck and once she is trembling, grip her waist and sink the great of yourself inside her.

Since you can each hold the pose easily, take your time. Perhaps try giving ten shallow thrusts and pausing; then nine shallow with one deep, holding yourself all the way into her; then eight and two... This is a Taoist motion; it is worth noting this position is close to "the rabbit" pose in Bikram yoga, said to improve both suppleness and state of mind.

The way her body is folded together means you might tuck a vibe into her hand so she could also stimulate her clitoris; an ideal accompaniment to slow love-making, better still if you choose to sodomise her - as you'll discover, the Turtle is also a delightful position for a serene and slow-paced afternoon of anal sex.

How to Have Multiple Orgasms


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

We at Cherish firmly believe that you can never have too much of a good thing — especially in the bedroom. That's why we're letting you in on some blissful news: With a little bit of know-how, you can experience more than one climax in a single sack session. In fact, from now on, you should have a new between-the-sheets mantra: No more one and done!

"The average woman is built to come again and again," says Rachel Carlton Abrams, MD, coauthor of The Multi-Orgasmic Woman. Meaning that once you've mastered that first peak, the climb to the next one is absolutely obtainable. "Women don't require a refractory period like men do, so we're able to stay aroused for longer and have an orgasm a second and third time with little effort," says Dr. Abrams.

Of course, sometimes just having a single full-body earthquake offers one hundred percent sack-satisfaction, and some of you might feel like calling it a night after your usual one-timer. That's fine. After all, having the option is the key to a smokin' sex life. However, for those times when you can't get enough of the good stuff, simply take these moregasm tips to heart (and to bed) and discover how to double your fun.

Moregasm Tip 1: Don't Be Single-Minded
The first step in plural peaking: Tune in to the mind-body connection. If you go into a hookup with limited expectations of your orgasm, you'll actually cause your body to limit its pleasure responses. In other words, if you assume you can only come once during intercourse...you will.

Orgasms 101: Priming for the 'Big O'


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

Orgasms are natural, so you’d think women would have no trouble experiencing one any time they wanted one… or two… or 10. Still, about 70% of women fake it at some point. What gives? Here are 10 tips to get to the “big O.” Plus, how much do you want it? Rate your sex drive with our quiz…

Maybe you’re too stressed out to enjoy a climax. Perhaps your partner’s not all that, ahem, stimulating.

Whatever the cause, it’s time to stop going through the motions and start getting the big payoff.

Here are 10 ways to help yourself have amazing orgasms:

1. Get out of your head
If you’ve got a negative tape loop running through your brain – Nice girls don’tMy thighs are too fatI’ll be too loud – hit the Stop button! Self-criticism is a major passion squelcher.

If your guy is in bed with you, he’s not thinking about whether your thighs jiggle or your bum looks like orange peel.

And nice girls do enjoy orgasms, so release your inner vixen and let her have some fun.

2. Experiment... or not
Fur-lined handcuffs. Light spanking. Role play. There’s nothing wrong with (safely) pushing the sexual envelope. Then again, there’s nothing wrong with the tried and true.

Emporio Armani lingerie and Armani Jeans get Megan Fox-y

Pretty much as soon as they signed her on, someone over at Armani HQ worked out that the best way to get Megan Fox to sell clothing is to show her not wearing any. Or at least that seems to be the case if her latest film for the house (or her last two) are anything to go by.

Sure, Fox may be for the most part unclad, but the flick still shows a side to the starlet we never saw before her Doolittle like turn for Armani. In this flick the sex symbol has toned it down significantly.

Shot in black and white, Fox wears very minimal makeup, and the effect is astonishing. She looks young, and sweet and sad-eyed and dare I say it even a little innocent as she slides sullenly down concrete walls, and allows swathes of feather-light sheer black silk to caress that out of control body of hers.

Perhaps my favourite part of the new film - and where it departs from her previous works with Armani - is the emphasis on the script tattoos that run bold across Fox's protruding rib cages. It makes you curious to see what could be written on such a body, and the way the bold, flowing text contrasts with the clean lines of Armani's lingerie is hugely effective.

Models' tattoos have always been a bit of a fraught subject in fashion, since they reveal so much about the owner, often things that aren't in line with a brand's image, but here they seem to fit in to the video perfectly.

South Florida Sex Clubs Revealed!


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

There's an unmarked black door at the end of a Pompano Beach strip mall, next to a laundromat and a dollar store and across the street from an Episcopal church. The only hint of what happens beyond the door is a worn sign leaning against a pole near the parking lot. It reads Club Hedo.

Just after 11 p.m. on a recent Saturday, a young couple — a broad-shouldered man in slacks and a petite blond in her mid-20s wearing a polka-dot dress — walks through the black door and into Club Hedonism. It's their first time here, and a few people stare as they amble past the pool table, wide-eyed and a bit nervous.

The clandestine club would fit right into a pleasant snapshot from 1978. There are a disco ball, a wooden bar adorned with Christmas lights, vinyl chairs situated around a few Formica tables, and a parquet dance floor replete with a single metal pole. The young couple sits down on a leather couch. A mix of recent pop songs and older disco plays to the 20 or so people — nearly all between 40 and 60 years old — scattered about the room.

Soon enough, though, the couple is invited to join a group of regulars — two men and three women — seated at a table. Susan, a tall, 49-year-old blond in a chiffon dress, locks eyes with the young lady in polka dots, takes her gently by the forearm, and guides her to a chair next to her own.

Naughty Flight Attendants: Playboy, calendars and sex scandals

The flight attendant may be there "primarily for your safety", but that hasn't stopped them being included in a variety of sources to satisfy male fetishes. As early as the 30's, the stewardess was used to market airline tickets.

Back when women's rights were non-existent, the stewardess was not allowed to be married, had to undergo regular grooming inspections and underwear checks.

Back then, employment could be terminated for things like "a gummy smile".

In the 70's, times started to change, mostly thanks to the efforts of the Stewardesses for Women's Rights - the first all-female national organization for flight attendants.

Before these changes, airlines would regularly advertise their airline by "pimping" their female flight crews. Slogans like "We Really Move Our Tails for You" and "I'm Carol, Fly Me" were considered perfectly acceptable ways to sell tickets.

In this article, we'll take a look back at some of the ways flight attendants were portrayed in advertising for airlines, along with some sex scandals.

Sex, Sex and More Sex...With Your Spouse!


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

In a previous post I wrote about "SEX, HORMONES AND IDENTITY."  The following is a letter received from a colleague/patient.  It is self explanatory.  It might interest, and might help a lot of people.

Dear Jory:

Previously I have expressed my gratitude to you for your diagnostic and therapeutic acumen which is so far ahead of the curve that it seems to befuddle many of your and my colleagues. You know that my wife and I are grateful for what you have done for both of us. We follow your blogs diligently and recommend them to our friends. I continue to encourage my colleagues and patients to read them regularly and carefully. We read your previous post on "Sex, Hormones & Identity." After some thought and discussion my wife suggested that I write this letter to you with permission to publish it on your blog for the benefit of others. I will continue as a first-person narrative. Given that I'm an orthopedic surgeon, my wife, an English major has edited it for intelligibility.

I am a 58-year-old male, married for 29 years to a wonderful woman. We have four healthy, wonderful children. We have been blessed with a good life and good health. My practice has done well and we are financially OK. Not to say that we have not had our share of marital squabbles, parental angst, and a fair ration of aggravation from our children, we have had it better than most.

Vibrators: Myths vs. Truth

Vibrators are by far the most popular sex toy. According to a recent nationally representative survey by University of Indiana researchers, 53 percent of American women have used them. But some women don't use vibrators for fear of harm, and many men wonder what a woman's use of a vibrator means. I hope to set the record straight.

Myth: Vibrators are for loners and losers.

Truth: According to the Indiana study, married women are more likely to use vibrators (50 percent) than singles (29 percent).

Myth: If women need vibrators to have orgasms, there's something wrong with them.

Truth: Not at all. Some women just need more intense stimulation than fingers and/or a tongue can provide. In the Indiana study, compared with women who never used vibrators, those who did reported greater likelihood of orgasm, greater sexual desire, easier arousal, more self-lubrication (meaning less discomfort during intercourse), and equal or better sexual satisfaction.

According to a 1999 report in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 25 percent of women have difficulty having orgasms, or can't have them. Fortunately, sex therapists enjoy great success teaching women to have the orgasms.
