+ At the Toast, Donna J. Drucker looks at what Masters of Sex got right and wrong about Virginia E. Johnson:

“Masters had the professional credentials, drive, and passion for discovery to move the sex research forward, but he had little of the friendliness and calming nature needed to convince strangers to have sex with each other, observed by the researchers, the technicians in the room, film cameras, and a variety of machines measuring their breath, heart rate, and blood pressure. Johnson’s kindness and warmth, with Masters and with their collaborators, made the research possible.”

+ Linguist Jonathon Green’s chart of slang sex terms has everything you need for talking dirty like it’s 1351.

+ The Museum of Sex’s “Funland” sex carnival exhibit “offers a playful, explicit, but fundamentally shallow introduction” to the connection between sex and the carnivalesque.

+ At Nerve, Tina Horn says that although so many people are disdainful of scissoring, she really likes it:

“I love scissoring because it’s a huge turn-on to be so up close and personal with my partner. When I am topping with a strap on, I really get off on grinding my hips, feeling powerful and in control of my partner’s pleasure. It’s a more tactile and psychological kind of arousal, and less genitally focused. Personally, I am not always in the mood to be penetrated – but I’m always in the mood for naked kissing, groping, dirty talk, and intimacy. Scissoring satisfies all of those needs.”

+ You will probably still want to have sex when you’re “old.”

+ Cosmopolitan aims for the lesbian market with 28 “Mind-Blowing” Lesbian Sex Positions To Try.

+ The to-be-crowd-funded kGoal looks optimistically neat.

+ Sometimes it is fun to date women in Paris even when you don’t speak French:

“This was not only my first date in Paris, where I was volunteering at a film festival and blowing most of my savings on fine cheeses, but also my first date with a stranger. Before Paris, I’d dated people from my classes and extracurriculars. Now, in the heady flux of postgrad, in a city where I didn’t speak the language and knew next to no one, I’d thought, fuck it. I spent a Sunday drinking two-euro supermarket wine in my broom closet of a studio apartment, filling out online questionnaires. It’s hard enough finding queer women out in the wild, let alone the wilds of a place very far from home.”

+ At Oh Joy Sex Toy, Erika Moen discussed how to be a good strip club patron.

+ From Amelia G.’s “Wanting” in Dark Angels: Lesbian Vampire Erotica, edited by Pam Keesey:

“There was almost an electric shock when our lips met. I’d wanted to kiss her for so long. I’d wanted to kiss her so badly. Her tongue explored my mouth like a wild intruder, forcing my tongue back our from between her lips with her strength. She held me with a fierce urgency, tearing my tank top off over my head and dragging my shorts – thin my little black silk panties – down to the floor.

‘You’ve smeared your lipstick,’ I said when we finally came up for air. I reached a finger to fix it.

‘I don’t want you distracted from your pleasure. Can I tie you up?’ she whispered.”

    That Cosmo piece was so infuriating. WHY DO THE AIRLINE DRAWINGS STILL HAVE THEIR BRAS ON? WHY ARE THY TYING EACH OTHER UP WITH TIES.

    Ps: DON’T USE YOUR GOOD TIES FOR SEXYTIME BONDAGE PURPOSES. They will fray and be ruined.

      What do you expect? This from the same magazine telling women who are dating some with a penis, that playing and pulling the hairs down there will drive the person you are doing to will enjoy it. Or the equivalent of an Indian Burn down there.

    Can’t personally stomach erotica in all its cheese, but do have a soft spot in my heart for “Carmilla”, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s gothic novella (aka the prototypical lesbian vampire story)–really interesting cultural study too as it was published in the era of “Victorian morality”…

    Link for all of you dork-a-sauri out there: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/10007/10007-h/10007-h.htm

    P.S. “Carmilla” also inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the sexy vamp archetype in general, if that shit interests you.

    Hey, this is fun, I *like* being targeted by Cosmo.

    Ignoring the lack of uh, masculine gender presentation, variation in body type or hardly any racial diversity, it’s kinda nice to tour the titillating, mainstream *<3*~omgSEX!~*<3* club. I'm used to being too icky or insignificant or complicated to get an invitation.

    I'm not sure I'd become a full-time member, but it's nice to, you know, be invited once in a while.
