Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. […] Nearly always when you find a place as beautiful as Positano, your impulse is to conceal it. ––"Positano“ by John Steinbeck

You don’t need the talent of a novelist like Steinbeck to recognize that Positano is one of the most magical spots on earth. Tucked away in the Amalfi coast of Italy, it brims with beauty and seduces with its easy Mediterranean charms. That makes it the perfect spot for a pictorial featuring Pia Cattapan. The Australian model popped over from London to soak up some of that lazy summer sun and take a dip in that sparkling aquamarine sea.

Sexual Medicine

Can Meditation Give You A Better Sex Life?

Viagra works by increasing blood flow to the penis, which strengthens erections. How does meditation work? Well, it calms the mind and increases blood flow throughout the body. So, could meditation be a natural form of Viagra? According to this Vice article, for some men, meditation can cure erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Meditation lifts your awareness into the present moment, which is the ideal head space for sex. And it works its magic on the mind and the body. Perhaps some ambitious researchers should look into this.

Speaking of sex research, have you ever heard the story of the first case of someone using Viagra? In order to prove that phentolamine, the active ingredient in Viagra, gives men erections, Dr. Giles Brindley decided to literally show other doctors his work. So he went to Las Vegas to speak at the 1983 American Urological Association conference. Before his talk, the doctor injected his penis with phentolamine. At the climax of his speech, Dr. Brindley dropped his drawers and showed conference attendees his chemically induced erection. Ta-da!

Keeping Things Casual

Friends With Benefits, One-Night Stands and First-Time Hookups

In 2007, 20 million people were using dating sites. In 10 years, that number has more than doubled, to 48 million. That means often enough, the first time you will meet your date IRL is on your first date. In order to keep things sexy and chill, let’s go over some helpful advice.

This may seem backward, but you need to work to keep a hookup a hookup. What we mean is, while you’re definitely expected to take a date to dinner, you shouldn’t be feeding your hookup. This might sound harsh, but most young people agree that they don’t want to eat with their one-night stands. That’s according to a recent survey of millennials by OnePoll.

By the way, are you down for period sex with a first-time hookup? Or is that too much, too soon? Is period sex something that should only happen once you’re in a committed relationship? And what if a man says, "Nope, sorry, I don’t mess with blood on a first date”? Is that okay? So many questions. This article provides some helpful perspectives about getting rusty.

What about keeping things sexy and casual with a friend? Those relationships rarely work out and yet, they’re still very much a thing. In a recent survey, women were asked about their casual sex habits. Fifty percent of women reported they’ve had between one and three FWB relationships. As your go-to guide for all things sex, we’re here help you navigate the tricky shoals of a FWB. Playboy’s Bobby Box breaks down the science of how to best maintain a FWB relationship. That brings us back to where we started: know the boundaries between a date, a hookup and a friend. Good luck!

Anatomy Lesson

Sex Ed Gone Wrong

When most parents send their kids off to school, there is the expectation that sexual education will be part of the curriculum. Obviously, some parents are against anyone teaching their kids about the birds and the bees, but it’s 2017. People should speak honestly and openly with their kids about sex. Otherwise, they could end up learning about it in other ways, like getting involved in a secret sex scandal at an elite prep school. Or perhaps their teacher, a former Teacher of the Year winner, will invite them over for sex parties. In other words, it’s better to talk about sex with your fam than read about sex and your fam in the news.

Hard Science

When You Travel Around the World Studying Sex

This has to be one of the better ways to spend your days: Dr. Paul L. Vasey travels the world learning about sex. This week, one of Playboy’s resident sexologists, Debra W. Soh, spoke with Dr. Vasey about what it’s like globe-trekking in search of sexual knowledge. Dr. Vasey is notably “the only person in the world with a research program dedicated to understanding the evolutionary reasons why genes associated with being gay don’t go extinct.” In this fascinating read, the two sexologists chat about passing on genes, the vast mysteries of sexual identity and far-off cultures that recognize a third gender.

Kink Report

Reviewing the Broad City-inspired Sex Toys

We could make bad jokes about how this latest news is proof the women of Broad City would like you to go fuck yourself. Or we could say the Broad City creators are out here to teach men how to fuck like a feminist. But why do that? Those would be too easy, too dismissive. The thing is, we think it’s pretty damn dope that Abbi and Ilana are releasing a line of Broad City-themed sex toys. The world needs to be kinkier and we’re stoked they’re behind the cause.

While we’re talking sex toys, it shouldn’t be surprising that Princess Di reportedly always traveled with a vibrator. Princesses like to pop one off, too.

This Week In WTF

This Week in WTF: The Tale of Miss Coconut

Each week, we take a sweep around the world to see what folks do when they’re feeling extra kinky. Sometimes the unlucky ones run afoul of the law. Other times it’s nature’s laws that punish them for their sexual hubris. Without fail, week by week, we find a few tales of humans pushing the envelope, asking questions like, “What if I stick my dick in this?” This week was no slouch.

Man Goes Cuckoo For Coconuts

Reddit is a good place to go to have your mind blown. This week, a dude went on Reddit and shared his story of having sex with a coconut. He was in Mozambique. It was hot. He was lonely. You see where this is going. What the dude didn’t anticipate were the maggots that would infest his dick. I just threw-up a little in my mouth.

You need to read it for yourself. Other men soon came forward because, apparently, coconut-humping is common. A bunch of guys shared their stories of busting a nut into a coconut. If you can believe it, there’s even a whole subReddit devoted to it. Rule 34 prevails again.

Nobody Wants Your Spicy Pickle

Condoms can be a tough sell. Thus, the condom industry is always looking for new ways to get consumers excited about safe sex. Flavored condoms are one trick. There are condoms that taste like chocolate, mint, strawberry and even whisky and bacon. But this new condom from Manforce—great name for a condom company—is out there. The condom tastes like a spicy pickle. Although it’s a popular side dish in parts of Asia, apparently no one wants to taste a spicy pickle with a dick in their mouth.

Getting Wild in Wisconsin

Meanwhile, back in America, it’s state fair season. You know what that means, right? A couple got busted this week for having sex in public at the Wisconsin State Fair. This “previously married” couple was caught in the stands of an open-air coliseum, where the state fair typically puts on its dog and pony shows (no, not those kind of shows). One fair-goer filmed it, and the couple even smiled for the camera. Hey, Florida, what happened? It’s like you’re not even trying anymore.

The Worst Sex Stories You’ve Ever Heard

BuzzFeed likes to collect stories from its BuzzFeed Community members. These first-person accounts of awkward experiences and painfully dumb choices are often hilarious. But no awkward experience or dumb choice will ever be as funny as ones involving sex. Here are 18 of the worst sex stories you may ever hear. For a taste, read this highlight:

It’s your birthday…surprise! I just sharted in your mouth!” ––said the hunky bartender to the birthday girl after she took him home to have group sex with her and her friends. And, um, wow! Just wow. Most of these stories are whatever the opposite of legendary is. But if you need a laugh they got you covered.
