I often find myself doing things, sexually and otherwise, because I think it will make for funny dinner-party conversation later. That’s normal, right? My newest Breathless column for Vogue is about the validity of the “novelty fuck” :)
Remember the nostalgic condom in the wallet? Is it just me, or do guys no longer do that? When did it become primarily the woman’s job to carry protection? (Oh and if one more guy tells me he “just got tested” I’m going to take a vow of celibacy.) By Drea Sebastiano-Stanley.
The 4th (and final!) episode of the Slutever VICE documentary series is out today :) This one investigates a new trend of single women in Japan who are paying for rent-a-boyfriends by the hour. Jealous! I went to Tokyo to have the boyfriend experience.
Do you think you tell a $10,000 silicone penis from the real thing? On the latest episode of New York mag’s SEX LIVES podcast, I talk with slut heroine Maureen O’Connor about the making of the new VICE Slutever show: fucking fake dicks, observing medical sexual surrogacy; renting a cuddle-boyfriend in Japan; helping a dominatrix kidnap a client by throwing him in the trunk of her car, and so on.

Episode 2 of the Slutever show is out, in which I travel to Vancouver to meet a group of bad-ass sex workers who cater specifically to disabled clients. And I also hang with Spencer, a radio show host with cerebral palsy, who opens up about how sex surrogacy changed his life.
Boyfriends and girlfriends have come and gone, but my fuck buddies have stood the test of time. Why are friends with benefits often more sustainable than actual relationships? Read my latest Breathless for Vogue here :)
“Without having downed a glass of overpriced Prosecco, I actually had to immerse myself in conversation, feign interest, and try really hard to care about what the other person was saying.” Emily Bahr-de Stefano talks the perils of dating sober.
