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.

How To Throw a Party in 2011: Get Naked!


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

Here's how to throw an event in 2011: First of all, invite me! Secondly, hire a door person who can figure out how to find my name on the freakin' guest list.

Inside, try for a mixed crowd—come on, try—and give them some entertainment they can't find online, plus a modicum of food, booze, and gift-bag items to make them not unhappy they left the house. (Just don't pressure me to write up the sponsors because I don't give a shit who paid for my Diet Coke and skin cream!) And make it all friendly but a little dangerous, with the sense of a real event, not just a glorified photo op.

This week was better than usual, eventwise. We were reminded that semi-nudity is another good idea when the relaunch of Lee Chappell and Shequida's Drip party at the Grace Hotel proved moistly delightful. At last Tuesday's bash (now monthly), it was a Beach Blanket movie meets Fellini's Satyricon, all the silly queens swimming to the shallow end while more pensive types splashed to the deep end, some of them going off the deep end. And then you could just drown yourself at the bar!

At the new dance club District 36, the two-hour open beer bar last Friday night was a plus, especially since you didn't have to swim to it. The club mixes an old-school feel with new technology, the wall murals of old clubbies (like guess who?) nicely coexisting with a clean, industrial design including an open DJ booth that's like the Starship Enterprise but more diversely populated.

Women’s Rape Fantasies

Some women have fantasies of being forced into sex. At first glance, rape fantasies make no sense. Why fantasize about something that in real life would be traumatic, repugnant, and possibly life-threatening? But on closer examination, such fantasies are not unusual. Many men daydream about getting the girl by rescuing her from a dangerous situation—without the slightest wish to confront armed thugs, or be trapped in a fire on the 23rd floor.

Fantasies allow us to “experience” the outer limits of our imaginations safely, with no risk—and for some people, that includes fantasies of coerced sex or forced orgasm.  In fantasy everything is permitted and nothing is wrong. But rape fantasies raise thorny issues. Many women who have them can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong with them.

Since 1973, nine surveys of women’s rape fantasies have been published. They show that about four in 10 women admit having them (31 to 57 percent) with a median frequency of about once a month. Actual prevalence of rape fantasies is probably higher because some women may not feel comfortable admitting that they have them.

For the latest report—Bivona, J. and J. Critelli. “The Nature of Women’s Rape Fantasies: An Analysis of Prevalence, Frequency, and Contents,” Journal of Sex Research (2009) 46:33—researchers at North Texas University asked 355 college women: How often have you fantasized being overpowered/forced/raped by a man/woman to have oral /vaginal/anal sex against your will?

Sixty-two percent said they’d had at least one such fantasy. But responses varied depending on the terminology used.

AN UNDERWEAR MODEL SELLING REAL ESTATE? BRILLIANT!

A video featuring a scantily clad model has gone viral around the world but it's not for the reason you'd think - it's actually a property listing.

Gold Coast real estate agency NEO Property has gained notoriety after it emailed its newest property listing of a house at Binda Place, Sorrento, to 100 clients.

It features a video clip complete with music, images of the property and images of the model - peeling her clothes off inside the property.

Narrated by agents Ian Adams and Adrian Jenkins, it is one minute and 25 seconds of innuendo, double entendres and close-ups.

Within a couple of days of it being posted, more than 20,000 people around the world had viewed the listing and already the agents' phones have been ringing non-stop with calls from potential buyers.

Mr Adams said it was "unashamedly sexy and fun" and all done "tongue-in-cheek" but it was a serious indication of the need for innovation in property sales.

"This industry takes itself too seriously sometimes. In the current market, we need to be making a point of difference and the traditional marketing tools just aren't enough any more," he said.

Valentines lingerie lookbook special 


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com | All Rights Reserved

Whoever said lingerie is more a gift for the giver clearly hasn't received the right pair yet. A properly nice lingerie set can boost a girl's confidence like nothing else. The trick is to choose a kind that suits your significant other's lifestyle, as well as your personal proclivities this Valentines Day.

If your girl is into light, femme colours, silky finishes and a bit of a boost, then Bar  Rafaeli-faced French brand Passionata might be the trick. In Australia it's available exclusively through Myer. If your Miss is  Rubenesque, Playtex's specially shaped and sized options might be the ticket, while Dalia provides supportive but luxurious options for girls whose cups runneth over a D. Bras 'n' Things offer fun options that are great for the budget conscious without actually looking like it. If your ladyfriend has a tendency towards lace up booties, and things with owls, Lonely lingerie is probably her ticket (extra points for a high-cut waist line). For women who enjoy letting the girls out to play, Selmark make push ups that seem to change the laws of physics. 

If your missus occasionally enjoys whipping you (literally) into shape, she'll probably be impressed by a set from Agent Provocateur. Fans of Parisian glam shouldn't step past the French girl's favourite Chantal Thomass, while Mimi Holliday by Damaris has a girly, flirty feel - both these brands are available online from Sauvage, or from Dirty Pretty Things in Sydney. For ladies who like their dresses tight, but are against lines of the visible panty kind, Nearly Nude live up to their name. Personally I'd like my secret admirer to get me a made-to-measure corset from only-in-Paris Cadolle. I'm obnoxious like that.

7 Foods for Better Sex


Photo Credit: Cherishmag.com

If you want to put some sizzle back into your sex life, food can help you set the mood. There’s nothing better than a romantic, home-cooked dinner, featuring some R-rated foods to help turn up the heat. “There’s a growing body of evidence that some of the vitamins and components in foods can enhance sexual function and sexual experience,” says Jennifer R. Berman, MD, the director of the Berman Women’s Wellness Center, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Here are some of the food ingredients (and my own favorite recipes) that have been major players in aphrodisiac history and lore, and also have modern-day science to back up their claims.

Avocados-- The Aztecs referred to avocados as, ahem, testicles, because of their physical shape. But the scientific reason why avocados make sense as an aphrodisiac is that they are rich in unsaturated fats and low in saturated fat, making them good for your heart and your arteries. Anything that keeps the heart beating strong helps keep blood flowing to all the right places; in fact, men with underlying heart disease are twice as likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED).

Almonds-- Topping my list of feisty foods, almonds have long been purported to increase passion, act as a sexual stimulant, and aid with fertility. Like asparagus (another one of my favorite sexy foods), almonds are nutrient-dense and rich in several trace minerals that are important for sexual health and reproduction, such as zinc, selenium, and vitamin E. “Zinc helps enhance libido and sexual desire,” says Dr. Berman. “We don’t really understand the mechanisms behind it, but we know it works.”
