I’m seriously not going to spoil this one for you, but I’m going to tell you now that the solution is sheer BRILLIANCE, if a little demented in its execution. Tell me what you think.

I love TED talks. I always learn new and fascinating things about the world through TED talks, and this one looks like one of my favorites so far.
I came across this story during my ramblings through the interwebs and I can’t for the life of me figure out how this works. From what I know about mannequins, they have breasts…sometimes with jaunty little nipples…but they distinctly lack any openings. So how the heck do you have an orgy with them? And can it be termed an orgy when only one of you is alive and making sexy time with inanimate objects?
I swear, this post is not just not safe for work, it’s not safe for sanity. Cracked.com have a post that details the 5 most baffling sex scenes in the history of fanfiction–and fanfiction has never been on a very stable footing to start with, anyhow. And the stuff in the article is well weird, trust me on this. Mind you, it’s also funny, which is it’s sole redeeming feature, but the pairings, like the one above, are highly disturbing, and also highly improbable. I’m not going to jeopardize anyone’s sanity (or the fun of the article) by actually quoting, but if you’re in the mood for a good–albeit twisted–laugh, then go read it yourself.
Is it possible to steal a man’s pride and joy just by touching him? This story seemed quite funny to me although I’m not sure the…err…victims of the alleged thefts felt the same way. Do you think it’s more that they believe that their penis has been stolen even though it’s in plain view? I’m wondering if they’re the type of people who would be easy pickings at a hypnotist’s show! What’s your take on this?
Not that I keep a close eye on such things, especially since Irelands banned adult shops, but between political views and horoscopes, I found this THE FUTURE OF SEX TOYS in our free commute paper. It was a full page on a new pleasure dome concept, actually, but this part was what I wanted to write about.
Dildos seem to become more and more complicated—this I know from very vague research involving Google searches for innocent things like birds and bees and other such—which return various sex things… eeh anyway get off my case…. this article is not about me and the accusations you’re all thinking about!!! Anyway, wannabe inventors have “improved” on the worlds favorite sex aid.
So if you’ve always wanted a talking vibrator—then here you go. Now has built in audio record-and-playback technology. So instead of that ‘hummmmmm’ and ‘buzzzzzzzz’, you can instead record your favorite song, girl/boyfriend, wife/husband, or even the next door neighbour and playback while, eh, you know, do that thing… Oh how awkward this post is!
So now you know… I found that the situation I found myself in, reading about this—and the strangness of the “object”—warrented a blog post (for those asking, why tell us this).
p.s. no linked attached cause I feel you need to find this on your own – and I don’t want to be handing it to you :P
Turns out to my shock that “flirty women sway men” according to local paper?
Research has revealed that a man being around flirty women makes that man love their wifes less. Studying women who act as if they might welcome sexual advances, it turned out that men were much less appreciative of their partners.
The study also shows that men who regularly surround themselves or uncontrollably surrounded by young women are much more likely to divorce thier partners than men with no exposure to flirts.
However, it seems that women are not so easliy swayed as men, because women are not influenced by the flirtyness behaviour of men and remain true to their appreciation of their partner.
So… in otherwords it seems to be either
(a) Women… must stop acting flirty as you are distroying homes!!!
(b) Men… the vast majority of women aren’t bothered with you, so stop kidding yourself!!!
Which one do you think, and if it’s (c) we need more detail.
Sameer and I went to the Field Museum – a natural history museum in Chicago – yesterday. The exhibits were fantastic. After oggling Sue the T-Rex for a bit, we went off and looked at the Ancient Americas exhibit. While in the Ancient Americas exhibit, I noted the pictures and models of women from ancient times, walking around and going about their work totally topless and I thought “Hmmm, seen that before.” As you know, in many African tribes, women still go topless.
Later on, we went to look at a photo exhibition of women’s rituals from around the world. While there, we came across a series of pictures of Swazi women at the annual Reed Dance, again topless. And here, one of the signs accompanying the pictures states that “In Swazi culture, breasts are associated with food, not sex.” and I though “A-ha! That makes perfect sense!”
We have some many people telling us that women who go around showing skin are asking for harassment but in certain cultures and certain times, women showed much more skin and went about their daily work without fear or reprisal or abuse.
So I ask, when did breasts become co-opted as exclusive symbols of sex and sexuality? I find it so strange that in some countries – the US in particular – people are so abhorrent of women who breastfeed their babies in public but they are quite happy to see breasts flashed around on billboards, in movies, or in porn. It’s a double standard that insinuates that breasts are for men’s pleasure and not for women’s purposes.
All advertising is about how “sex sells”. Personally, I think that it’s lost the touch, and isn’t as effective as it used to be when body parts weren’t so readily available.
Here are some recent ads where sex is used to sell all sorts of products. Looking at these ads, would you agree that sex really sells… best?
Do you think that you’d buy these products based purely off the images?
