We Have Thoughts on Rihanna’s New Boo (and Her New Music, Too)

Rihanna’s been trending more than POTUS this week, which says a lot given this age of red, white, blue and DayGlo orange politics. These days, it’s not easy to become bigger news than our Offender-in-Chief. Luckily, Rihanna did us a solid just when we needed a distraction. When pics of Rihanna getting busy in a hot tub with her new man began circulating on social media, the world was like, Donald who? Immediately, what everyone wanted to know––no, needed to known—was the identity of this lucky guy smacking lips with RiRi. Faster than CBS could greenlight CSI:Barbados, the internet discovered the mystery.

He’s Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel. According to “insiders,” RiRi and Hassan have known each other “for at least ten months.”

After she and Drake heated up last summer (and chilled out by fall), it’s dope to see Rihanna has found a new summertime bae for her wild thoughts, which happens to be the name of her latest single with DJ Khaled. If you haven’t already, check her new vid to start your weekend.

Future Sex

Who Wants On-Demand Orgasms?

By now, it should be abundantly clear that science has proven that sex is super good for you. It can make you smarter and healthier and it can even prevent heart disease.

With that in mind, who’s ready for “orgasms on demand?” Before you ask where to place your order, we should let you know, we’re not exactly there yet. (Well, we are, they’re called sex workers, but we digress.) Despite decades of research and prototypes, you still can’t tap that orgasm button. But like edging, we’re getting closer. Check this latest technological attempt at building a machine that, unlike straight men, can reliably give women the big O. It’s called the Orgasmatron.

Women Can Get Pregnant When They’re Already Pregnant?

Human bodies are miraculous—not Jesus-walking-on-water miraculous but spontaneous-combustion miraculous, or using-your-arm-strength-to-flip-over-a-car miraculous. For example, did you know a pregnant woman can get pregnant twice? Yep. Just like spontaneous combustion, it’s extremely rare, but it happens. It’s called superfetation. A woman has two ovaries, which means sometimes she ovulates with two eggs.

Dr. Sherry A. Ross is an award-winning OBG/YN and author of She-ology, a guide to women’s intimate health. As reported by the website Broadly, Dr. Ross explains the mysterious phenomenon in simple and clear terms: “A woman ovulates, she gets pregnant, she creates an embryo, and then a few days or even a week later she ovulates again, and then gets pregnant again, creating a second embryo.“ And if you’re wondering, even though they share a womb, the babies would not be fraternal twins. Weird, right?

Here’s another mystery of conception: the female condom. Most men know next to nothing about it. It’s time we change that, because it’s smart to be familiar with a variety of birth control options. So, here’s 13 Things You Need to Know About the Female Condom. Most important thing to know about it: it’s free with a prescription.

Hard Science

How Did Homosexuality Evolve?

This week, one of Playboy’s resident sexologists, Justin Lehmiller, examined a controversial question that still leaves people divided: Is homosexuality caused by evolution? Aside from religious arguments, there are also scientific arguments to consider; namely, if homosexuality “inhibits the ability to reproduce, why does this trait persist in the population instead of disappearing?” Lehmiller sorts through the scientific theories as to why nature gifted humanity with homosexuality. It’s a fascinating read.

In another bit of intriguing sexual science, a new study has found that pheromones trigger sexual responses in females. The reason we say females and not women is because the study was done on mice, not humans. Technically, researchers have yet to locate any pheromone-detecting organ in the human nose, yet many theorize that pheromones play a big part in human sex lives. This study hints at how that might work in similar ways with women. Trust us, the perfume and cologne industry is paying attention. Why do you think Abercrombie and Fitch’s Fierce smelled the way it did? Young women dug that stuff.

Dating Advice

Why Women Should Make the First Move

Everybody and their neighbor is dating online, which means if you’re gonna play, you gotta to bring your best game. As you know, we’ve always got your back. So, here’s a little advice to help you avoid pitfalls: Did you know people are getting popped for cheating on Snapchat? True story. Thanks to the new map feature, tons of couples have ended when one of them was discovered to be not where they should be. Do with that info what you will.

Now, here’s some advice that seems counterintuitive, but is likely to get you laid more. When you both swipe right and decide to meet, it often works better if you let her make the first move. That’s not us saying that. This comes from Bumble’s CEO, Whitney Wolfe. The woman-owned dating site is designed so that only women are allowed to make first contact. This approach has been wildly successful, obviously, and Wolfe told website EliteDaily that “the feedback from our female and male users [has] been overwhelmingly positive. Women feel confident making the first move and men love having the pressure taken off. For our users, it’s made a hugely positive difference.” And that’s how feminism can be sexy AF.

This Week in WTF?!

“Sir, Put Down the Frozen Cucumber: You’re Under Arrest.”

Each week, we take a trip around the globe to find the most head-scratching stories that would make anyone say WTF?! This week we found some very curious sex play from some very curious people—perhaps, too curious, because these folks went from curious to downright stupid.

THE CASE OF THE COOLER OF FROZEN CUCUMBERS
First up, meet Charles Ransier. He was just sentenced to life in prison in Texas. He didn’t commit a violent crime. Instead, a Texas state trooper discovered Ransier “sitting in his truck with melted candle wax on his bare chest and a collection of male enhancement pills, lube, children’s clothing and a cooler of frozen cucumbers.”

Kinky. But having that contraband isn’t a crime. According to wesbite MySanAntonio, Ransier also had Barbie dolls, candy, balloons, duct tape and rope. Notably, this wasn’t Ransier’s first strange bust. In 2012, he was arrested after he admitted he’d engaged in a “deviant sex act involving a squash.”

Still, none of that was why the judge locked him away for life. So what was it? Raniser was popped for possession of meth and destruction of evidence. When the Texas trooper found him, he was busy attempting to break a bunch of meth-filled syringes. He wasn’t too kinky for Texas. He was just too dumb.

INTRODUCING DICK-U-PUNCTURE
Have you ever tried acupuncture? Millions of people swear by it. But this dude took needles to a whole another level. Looking to get off, a 35-year-old man shoved 15 sewing needles into his urinary meatus. Who even comes up with that idea? Unsurprisingly, the dude found out that’s a terrible idea and required surgery. (By the way, if you don’t know what a urinary meatus is, google it.)

So, we did have one more WTF story for you this week, but it was a little too far out. Because it’s Fourth of July weekend, better to leave you off feeling sexy and ready for the beach, BBQs and bare skin—especially since July is the perfect time to be hooking up more. So with that…
