|
(0)

Folsom weekend has arrived and if you're new to the game, you've got all kinds of decisions to contemplate before running out onto the leather field. Those who trot through the gates minus preparation are still going to win on visuals and play, but those who put in just a minute of pre-fair prep will really score-- hard. The best place to garner suggestions is obviously via a Folsom veteran, but take it a step further and open your orifices to advice from those who not only make it a point to attend, but whose job it is to professionally observe, capture, and display erotic action at the fair and beyond.

Social media is for lovers: TheIceBreak brings couples to the web

|
(0)

Even when you meet someone online, most people would agree that the reward is eventually being able to interact with that human in real life, face to face, parts to parts. So why then is TheIceBreak getting already established couples to turn back to their computers and join the Facebook-style network designed for lovers? The answer is communication. We're all obsessed with typing, texting, and virtually sharing our feelings with our friends and family, so why not chat and share mushy-sexy-sweet-secrets with our partners over the Interwebs?

PSIgasm explores the science of the climax

|
(0)

Kinsey was an obvious pioneer of sexy science and the sexual revolution was sparked in the decades after his first studies contributed hard facts about human sexuality, but at this point his findings needs refreshing.

But instead of intensified sexual investigations, our country is regressing and the frigidness of conservative politics tied up with the pharmaceutical industry have pushed sex nerds away from researching healthy bodies to focus their attention on limp studies -- deficiencies, dysfunction, and anything else that can be prescribed.

The PSIgasm Project, a Bay Area sex-positive research project, wants to jump back into the fun stuff and track down just what exactly the the big "o" does to the human body. Read more »

San Francisco's chance at seeing 3D porn goes flat

|
(0)

If you thought wizards and animated toys were fun in 3D, imagine putting on a pair of those nerdy glasses and getting popped in the face by some erect nipples. Sex on the big screen is always a thrill, but the Chinese film, Sex and Zen, is taking eroticism to a whole new dimension (corny pun intended) and is sure to get viewers foolishly grasping at the seemingly tangible passion. Keep your hands at your sides, San Franciscans; unfortunately the film's debut in our city will only be offered in standard 2D. Read more »

Mark Mulroney uses repressed Catholicism to explore sex and gore

|
(0)

Artist Mark Mulroney learned his ABCs in Catholic school but his spongey child-brain soaked up a lot more than just textbook facts and bible versus. The gigantic boobs, guts and bloody wounds, horrified men, sweet girls, and hilariously exaggerated genitalia present in Mulroney's current exhibition, "Sent Upstate", is far from holy, but he likes to give the church credit where due.
