Male Contraceptives - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Wednesday November 2, 2016
This week, my news feeds have been flooded with stories about the recent research on an injectable male contraceptive.  The headlines I saw focused on the fact that promising research was halted because a few men experienced troubling side effects such as acne, mood disorders, and decreased libido.  Most of the women I know (including myself, to be honest), had little sympathy for this.

Catholic School Board Wants Porn Off Your TV

I just ran across this in my newsfeed.

I had to double-check the article to be sure this wasn't some sort of parody or perhaps, real, but from 1986.  No, it's real and it's dated from yesterday.

Don't bother with X-Rated - Unless You're a Porn Film History Buff

Wednesday October 5, 2016

I'm spending a lot of time watching TV lately.  Netflix and I have become good friends. 

A new movie popped up last night that piqued my curiosity.  It's called 'X-Rated' and is described as 'A look at a plethora of pornographic films ranging from the 1970s to the 2010s and a commentary about their lasting impacts on the adult industry and the world.'  It certainly is a look at a plethora of pornographic films but it's not a commentary about their lasting impacts.

The Satisfyer Satisfied Me

I never write toy reviews. I write snarky posts criticizing things that I think are bad or just plain ridiculous products, but I do not review toys.  I've never thought about it before but I guess it's because I own a toy shop.  I think my credibility is questionable if I rave about a toy that I sell at my store.  So for that, and other reasons, I've just never reviewed my positive experience with actually using a toy, until now.  This one was so completely unique that I just had to say something about it.

I ran across two very odd products last week.  The first is just a rip off, the second could rip off more than your money.

Astroglide has come out with a conception friendly lubricant.  I have no problem with the lube itself.  I haven't tried it but I've tried other Astroglide products and they're okay.  This one seems like it has very similar ingredients to their other water-based lubes.  Astroglide claims, however, that this TTC (trying to conceive) lube has a more alkaline ph which does not interfere with sperm survival and motility and that the consistency of the lube enhances the movement of sperm.  That could very well be true.
