*Too Close to Have Sex *

Do you and your partner finish each other’s sentences more than you finish each other off? It’s probably because you’re too close to have awesome sex. It sounds like the world’s most aggravating catch-22, seeing as we all look for that special soul mate and the perfect fuck to keep us company for the rest of our lives. Even though that’s the case, one sex expert is dead set that this is why some people just can’t get down with each other, since we find difference more attractive. I guess that’s why Madonna and Dennis Rodman were like the best couple ever. Read more.

French Maids Rule the Bedroom

Roleplaying is a sexy pillar of solid relationships. As our resident advice columnist Jenny Mollen once said, “You know what’s hotter than having sex with one person for the rest of your life? EVERYTHING!” British sex essentials site Lovehoney just released an interesting stat about their fantasy lingerie last year that puts cleanliness at the top: in Britain alone, the site sold 8,500 maid outfits in a year.

Sex by Southwest

South by Southwest has kind of become a cesspool of hipsters who “totally know a guy who can hook us up with guest list,” but as it’s proven time and time again, crazies are the best lays. So as you pack your condoms and sex toys for the festival, be sure to head over to qpid.me, a site that compiles STD results of everyone attending who have submitted their results via text. We like the idea, but how honest do you think people are going to be with their herpes?

Fifty Shades of Ben Wa Balls

While this logical next step took longer than we thought it would, an official Fifty Shades of Grey sex toy line is finally set to hit the market. The line will of course include the “signature Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, the Submit To Me First Time Bondage Kit and the Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle,” promised the press release, as well as assuring us that the writer of the famed series worked with the company to create high-quality replicas of what was used in the book. Thank god. Read more.
