Ride 'Em, Cowgirl!

Do you know what a Reverse Cowgirl is? If not, you might be a little behind in your sexual positions IQ.
How about the CAT? It's not a reference to feline sensuality but rather an acronym for the very unsexy-sounding Coital Alignment Technique. But wait, the description sounds like it could be quite stimulating. Invented by a psychotherapist to increase clitoral stimulation during penetration, the technique has been credited with increasing women's orgasms and simultaneous orgasms of both partners. Or so says iVillage "super sexpert" Tracey Cox in her guide for selecting the right sexual position for you and your partner.

Bare Naked Noggins

A handsome bald man is a thing of beauty--a living sculpture of flesh and bone--and perhaps the ultimate symbol of virility. Maybe it’s an extra dose of testosterone that makes him more masculine in many ways than his thicker-tressed brethren.

But beyond artistic beauty and hormones, a bald pate suggests a certain wisdom for a number of reasons. First, there’s wisdom by association: Mahatma Gandhi and Buddha were bald. Then there’s the evidence that evolution leads to less hairiness and more intelligence. And let us not forget the fact that baldness generally comes with age, and wisdom is a product of experience. But most of all, perhaps, a smooth and unadorned dome is proof positive that its wearer is wise (and tasteful) enough to forgo plugs, toupees, comb-overs and—worst of all—one of those greasy little ponytails.

A bald head is clean. Honest. Smooth. Sensual.

What Lures Us All

What do men and women across all cultures find attractive?

A 1951 survey by sexual research pioneers Clelland Ford and Frank Beach found only two characteristics that men and women universally consider sexually attractive. Everything else was inconsistent, including what parts of the body are considered erotic, and the most attractive size and shape for a body. In some cultures, breasts are not objects of sexual interest while in others where they are, there might be a preference for small ones or long, pendulous ones over large round ones. Though the survey was done more than half a century ago, it seems to hold true today.

So what are the two characteristics? You could probably guess if you tried, even though it might not thrill you. They are youth and health.

The Quiminology Files

Southern Smile

Happy ginas everywhere adore this term of affection (not to be confused with vagina dentata, which is apparently a very scary thing for men the world over). What a cheerful way to think of your private bits! A southern smile implies satisfaction and evokes warm, sultry regions. Who wouldn’t want to bask in your southern smile, kiss it, try to make it even broader?

Loving Outside the Box

A different view of partnership
By Fae Sutherland
When Lady Jaided approached me about writing this article, it was more than a little serendipitous that the request came on the third anniversary of the day my partner and I met. Chelsea and I have been best friends for three years now, living together for going on two, and our relationship is one of those that make most people cock their heads and adopt a befuddled look as they try to figure it out. We kind of enjoy baffling people, actually.

You see, Chelsea is what I refer to as my “hetero lifemate.” We are both women, she is straight while I am bi, and we are absolutely a hundred percent committed to each other and our partnership. We have what equates to a platonic marriage, if you need a label on it. But then, that’s kind of a confusing label, isn’t it?

Wicked Women and Lady Jaided recently formed an alliance with to supply sexual-enhancement products for a new review column called The Buzz, which will start in September.
