Sex Might Protect You Better Than Your Annual Flu Shot

Wintertime is cough and cold season, but did you hear that sex might protect your health just as well as a flu shot and cough syrup? For real. This article from Tonic, which collected a few studies, such as one about immunoglobulin A production, illustrates how someone can use sex to stay healthy AF. By the way, regular exercise is also known to increase the vitality of your sperm.

And while you’re at it, maybe lay off trimming down your pubic hair for a bit. A new study shows that if you shave below the belt, you could increase your risk of an STD/STI by 440 percent. Yes! 440 percent.

The Hottest 2017 Calendars to Stuff in a Man’s Stocking

Every year, LOVE gives the world a gift with its ridiculously hot Advent calendars. This year’s LOVE cover model is Kylie Jenner. Check the teaser video for the calendar if you know what’s good for you.

Two of Instagram’s sexiest models also have new calendars to keep 2017 lit. Lindsey Pelas is calling hers the “Dirty South” calendar and Abigail Ratchford has dubbed hers the “Fantasy" calendar., wherein she poses in a year’s worth of her favorite fantasies. Both were previewed on Instagram; they’ve left us starting our New Year’s Eve countdowns a bit earlier than usual.

But if you’re into stranger things, we got you covered there, too. You might love this calendar of “Hot Women Holding Carp”. If you’re wondering who thought 12 months of “women holding fish” was a good idea like we are, all we can divulge is…it’s from England.

Sex & Culture

How Much Have Our Sexual Attitudes Really Changed?

As Hef pointed out earlier this year, we’ve made great strides to win the war against the conservative sex movement. Those strides have allowed many of us to enjoy our lives as sexually-satisfied adults. But we’re not completely free from the prude Puritans who gave our nation a ton of sexual hang-ups just yet.

For instance, women remain sexual mysteries—both to their partners and to themselves—because of the shame game. People still care about how many other people they’re partners have slept with. Our general lack of open sexual communication is forcing people to stay in relationships even when they’re unhappy. Worst of all, when supported by old-fashioned religious attitudes, the old-school shame game is motivating Ohio lawmakers to push what’s being called the “heartbeat bill,” which bans abortion after six weeks. So, as you see, we have a lot of work to do in 2017.

Sex Addiction Is Not a Disorder, So Maybe Stop Telling People You Are One

Look, no one gets “addicted to the dick.” To all the people who have called themselves “sex addicts,” it’s time to drop it. In case you haven’t heard, sex therapists have stopped labeling sex addiction as a disorder, which means there’s no such thing as a sex addict. For more, check out this week’s Hard Science, wherein neuroscientist Debra W. Soh dives deep into the data to explain the key differences between being hypersexual and being an addict.

WTF?!

This Week in WTF: How Bad Do You Want It?

Let’s play a little game called “How Bad Do You Want It?” In each of these stories, the contestant shows the world just how bad they want it. What is “it”? Sex, of course. Ready to play?

What if I give you a picture of me naked as collateral?

Young Chinese people looking to upgrade their life with a personal loan have been putting up some titillating collateral: naked selfies. The idea is that if a person doesn’t pay back the money, the loan shark keeps the naked selfies and does whatever what they want with them. And people are going for this deal. Which begs the question: How bad do you want that extra cash—or to loan it?

Would you use snake venom as contraception?

A male birth control pill is coming—or so we keep hearing. There has been a lot of news about a recent trial that was killed after men complained of side effects. Well, there may be a new hope—and this approach has no side effects. Researchers have discovered three types of venom from cobras and coral snakes can block sperm production. This has left researchers thinking they can develop a venom-based male birth control pill from it. Would you use it? How badly do you want to lose that condom?

Guess I don’t need these anymore, do I, Agnes?

Holy fuck. A man who hasn’t tasted that electric lick of an orgasm for at least a decade decided to get rid of his useless parts in protest. If he wasn’t having sex with his wife, why did he need them? So, he chopped off his meat and two veg with a knife. How bad did he want it? Apparently, a lot.


Well, you know what time it is. Time to get your mind right to chase the thrills coming your way this weekend. Before then, check this gallery of pics of the stunning Bianca Gerth. For Playboy Abroad, Ana Dias focused her lens on Bianca’s inimitable sexiness. If you’d like to see more, peep the vid from their shoot. Enjoy!
