Sexy Stephen Colbert?

Is Stephen Colbert a secret reader of our Sex Talk blog? His January 26 interview with "sex preacher" Ed Young followed suspiciously on the heels of our post about the pastor who challenged married couples in his congregation to have sex every day for a week (with no rest on the Sabbath).

Okay, truth is Colbert's segment came two months after our post, which followed a New York Times article on Rev. Young's challenge, which is more likely where a Colbert Report producer spied it. If he'd gotten it from this blog, he might have had the Rev. Paul Wirth from Tampa's Relevant Church on, whose 30-day sex challenge has a bit more substance to it and seems to focus more on intimacy.

But just in case, he is lurking, Stephen, we think you're hot. We'd love to take off those glasses and muss that hair.

Empress on the Mount

Dubious Sex and Dating Advice From a Cranky Aussie *cough* Royal

Dear Empress:
My new love lives a thousand miles away and so we only get to see each other every month or so. In the interim, I get so horny I can hardly stand it. We sort of started having phone sex but then he stopped because he says it’s too frustrating. Your Majesty, I’m about climbing the walls here. How can I get him to start talking dirty to me again?

Tell him that you wouldn’t dream of making him uncomfortable, so you’ve started calling a phone sex line and “Julio’s” delicious accent and suggestions get more than your imagination quivering. (Okay, so we both know that Julio is probably Bob from Podunk who collects roadkill as a hobby but your bloke doesn’t need to know this.)

If this isn’t enough to spur your lover into verbal action, invest in some toys of the vibrating kind. And ram them where you think they’ll do the most good when you next see Mr Tall, Dark and Silent.

Glorious One:
Do you know the legal definition for justifiable homicide? I gave my husband a season ticket to his stupid baseball team for Christmas and he gave me a tire pressure gauge. I feel that his death, drawn-out and painful, is the only adequate response. Any ideas of how I can get my point across to him without going to jail?

If you could guarantee the jury would be women only. Hell, you’d be acquitted and rightly so. But I don’t know if that’s possible so we’ll have to stick to legal means to educate your husband. Dammit.

You need to get your hands on that season ticket. As you obviously chose such a poor present for him (waaaaaay too expensive and not car-related), it’s only right that you make up for your appalling selfishness by selling the ticket (I’m presuming that they’re not cheap and you can get rid of it on ebay or the like). With the money from the sale, buy yourself jewellery, shoes or whatever you’d like (i.e., what he should have bought you for Christmas in the first place) and get him something he really wants. Perhaps a quart of oil for the car? After all, you made the thoughtless mistake and it’s up to you to make amends.

You’re doing it because you care. Really.

I asked my wife what she wanted for Christmas and she said “nothing.” So I didn’t get her anything. Now she won’t talk to me (which is fine) but she refuses to have sex too. Why should I suffer because I listened to her? Why can’t women be more like men?

Women aren’t like men because then the species would have self-destructed whilst still in amoeba form. As in, you did what your wife said, not what she meant.

The defence rests.

Do Rich Men Make Better Lovers?

A new survey allegedly says most women believe so. 51-year-old author and professional arm candy Bienvenida Buck makes a pretty good case for the affirmative in an excellent point-counterpoint at femail. She believes their success itself something of an aphrodisiac, partly because of their confidence. The old alpha male argument.

But 76-year-old artist and author Molly Parkin demolishes Ms. Buck while naming lovers and places to back up her case, from sex with a 23-year-old surfer in a cupboard at the Bellagio to an affair with wealthy musician Bo Diddley. (Sex tip from Ms. Parkin: trumpet players make good lovers because of their amazing tongue dexterity!) She says wealthy men are often too fat, distracted and stressed to make love well.

What do you think?

Potent POTUS

Doesn’t matter what your political affiliation, how could you not be devastated when the freshly inaugurated President of the United States (POTUS) took his wife in his arms, said, “Hello, my love,” kissed her ear, and swept her up in their first dance as President and First Lady while Beyonce serenaded them? Yes, this new President of ours—Barack Obama—is one sexy beast. Smart, powerful, caring and sexy. He makes us feel safe. And that smile makes us swoon.

Finger Food for Strip Poker

Some of Hot Mama’s poker buddies are suddenly so broke that they can’t even come up with an ante for her Friday night game. Ah but in their salad days, these bankers, brokers, real estate moguls and auto execs had so much money they thought nothing of raising you $1,000 when they couldn’t even beat what was showing on the table. They lost so often and so big to her that she managed to pay off Rancho Hot Mama and equip it with advanced solar technology that allows her to generate plenty of electricity for her own needs with some left over to sell to the power company.

So she tries to be generous with them in their time of need. Since they’re staunch free-market fellows, she came up with a way to let them into the game that allows them to keep their ideals intact, if not their dignity. Since they have no cash, she sells them chips in exchange for their clothes. Prices range from 10 bucks for a shoe to 100 for underpants. If they win, they can buy them back. If not, well, let’s just say they get a taste of their own foreclosure and repo medicine.

One thing you can say for Hot Mama, though. She might send them home naked, but no one leaves Rancho Hot Mama hungry. She’s had to find thriftier ways to feed people well in these belt-tightening days. Pork tenderloin is inexpensive, lean and delicious. And it warms the insides of her guests, which helps, since some of the poor dears are playing sans pants.

Roast Pork Sammies

1 ½ pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced

1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 450°f. Mix rub ingredients together with a fork and sprinkle over tenderloin and rub into the surface. Sprinkle minced garlic on, pressing into surface in the same way. Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a Dutch oven or large skillet and sear meat on all sides. Roast for 20 minutes. Let stand 20 minutes and then slice. Serve on buns slathered with stone-ground mustard.

Post-Holiday Playthings
By Maggie Casper

The holiday season is finally over. I hope you received all the naughty gifts you’d ever hoped for!

It tends to take a bit of time after the holidays to settle back into a regular routine of work and family responsibilities, so I wanted to do a simple article, one that didn’t require too much thought to get through. A quick read to give you overworked and under-relaxed ladies out there some down time before the Valentine’s Day excitement starts.

With that in mind, I reviewed a very cute multipurpose vaginal/anal dildo named Wanda and a triple stimulation vibrating toy called Dreamboat. I hope you enjoy.

Yours in Pleasure,
Maggie Casper

Wanda: Silly Look, Serious Stimulation

My first reaction upon seeing Wanda was to giggle. It is a very odd-looking dildo for sure but don’t let that little fact sway you. When it comes to non-vibrating toys that are great for both vaginal and anal play, Wanda is it! Those of you thinking about getting Wanda for your man, just tell him to overlook how cute and unmacho Wanda is. Instead he should think about the blissful prostate massages in his future.

Wanda’s nonporous phthalate-free silicone material makes it easy to clean and sanitize which means it is perfect for both vaginal and anal use.

Wanda’s tapered length is pleasing even for those new to anal penetration. Just remember not to use your Wanda with a silicone-based lube! The flexibility of this product is nearly perfect. It is not too rigid and yet does not wilt under the pressure of vigorous play. Once it’s inserted, rotating Wanda’s base will cause you to shiver and writhe in pleasure. Due to Wanda’s unique shape, you will feel every internal movement.

The slight curve to Wanda’s tip means better stimulation to the G-spot for those who wish to use Wanda for vaginal play. The bulges, or speed bumps as I have come to refer to them, feel wonderful as you guide Wanda’s curvy length in and out of your body. The fact that Wanda fits into a harness with the added stability of o-rings makes the versatility off the charts for any orientation of singles, couples or more who want to play.

As always I have looked for something I would consider a negative with Wanda and have yet to really find it. Wanda’s price might seem a little steep at first glance but if you are a lover of well made and versatile anal toys, Wanda is well worth it. The only difference I can even begin to think of to improve Wanda would be in making it a waterproof, vibrating toy. Other than that, I think due to the size, shape and being Phthalate Free and hypoallergenic, Wanda is one of the best non-vibrating anal dildos I have every used.

Total length: 6.5 inches
Insertable length: 5.5 inches
Circumference at widest point: 4.5 inches
Materials: This item is made of a Phthalate Free material Manufacturer: Fun Factory
Price: $49.95 (currently on sale for $34.88)

Dreamboat: Not So Dreamy

I was really excited about this toy. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited by the prospect of triple stimulation? It has a shape that just screams fun. The little nubs on both the anal and clitoral stimulating ends of the Dreamboat look like a dream come true, so you can imagine my sadness at finding this toy not living up to my expectations at all. I am going to start with the things I did not like about the Dreamboat.

The very first thing I noticed upon opening the package was a chemical smell that did not seem to lighten as much as I would have liked after washing. The vinyl material feels a bit tacky to the touch and somewhat uncomfortable to insert without lube. Although the vibrations felt strong against my hand, they vastly diminished once the dildo extension was seated completely inside me. So not only was I not overly thrilled by the intensity of the vibrations as they resonated through the toy but I was also not overly thrilled by the overall build of the toy. The clitoral stimulation protrusion fell short, not reaching my clit without lots and lots of manipulation. And when I did get it aligned just right in order to reach my clit, the anal stimulator fell short of its mark. It could just be the way my body is shaped and as such, your mileage experience might differ.

The thing I liked most about the Dreamboat is the G-spot dildo. It has a nice shape. The Dreamboat has a bit more of a curve than many other G-spot toys I have tried, making it a better fit for my body. While inserted, it is comfortable for rocking against and the remote makes changing speeds very easy. Another positive is that the Dreamboat is made of phthalate-free and latex-free materials.

I wish I could give a better review for this product. Things like what I see as a design flaw could merely be caused by the shape of my body. The less than stellar vibrations could also very well be perfect for someone who does not like more intense vibrations the way I do. Overall I think Dreamboat is a mediocre triple stimulation toy and would suggest you read and compare other reviews before making up your mind.

Total length: 4.5 inches
Insertable length: 3.25 inches
Circumference: 4.5 inches
Power Two AAA batteries required
Materials: This item is made of Phthalate Free material Manufacturer: Vibratex

What’s behind the male/male erotic romance craze
By Evangeline Anderson

Men loving other men—Oscar Wilde referred to it as “The love that dare not speak its name.” The phrase was originally taken from a poem by his young male lover, Lord Alfred Douglas and used against Wilde in court where he was being prosecuted for “gross indecency” because of his sexual orientation and beliefs. Wilde refuted the charges eloquently and was allowed to go free—at first. Later he was sentenced to two years of hard labor for daring to practice and advocate homosexuality.

A lot has changed since the controversial playwright and author was sent to prison for practicing man love in the late 1800s. Indeed, these days we not only speak about it, we watch it, read it, write it, and (for those of us who like the genre) drool about it to our friends. So what is it about watching, or for the purposes of this article, reading about two hot men get it on that makes us all so hot and bothered? How did it all get started? Why do readers read it? And why are writers who used to write only heterosexual romance suddenly leaving out the heroine in favor of two hot, hunky heroes?

See Me Feel Me

Agoraphilia - Arousal from having sex in public places.
Come on, we’ve all got a little agoraphiliac in us, right? No? How about the time you and that cute new intern had a tryst on top of the boss’ desk? You never had sex in a public bathroom stall? On a beach? In the woods? At the drive-in? In the car while going through the carwash? No? Oh. Well, maybe it’s not for everyone.
