Masturbation Report: Stats on Self-Love

May 19, 2015

Words: Karley Sciortino / Photo: Ellen von Unwerth / Did you know that May is National Masturbation Month? Yeah, it’s random, and I don’t really understand the point (isn’t every month masturbation month?), but let’s just go with it. In celebration of self-love, the sex toy brand We Vibe did their first ever national masturbation report. They talked to 600 men and women across the United states, ranging from age 20-70, identifying as single, in a relationship or married, and the…

Ask A Porn Star: Kayden Kross

April 23, 2015

By Vera Papisova / When I told my friends I was going to start this column, Kayden Kross was the girl all the boys wanted me to interview. She is one of porn’s most coveted treasures, and a few years ago she landed one of the highest-paying performing contracts in the industry. She’s kind of a big deal.  Did I mention she’s been published in the New York Times? (It’s a great personal essay that was part of the Modern…

Ask Slutever: Help! I Can’t Stop Faking It!

March 19, 2015

Photo by Stephen Shore Help! I’m a liar! I’ve had a casual on/off sex relationship with this guy for over a year and it’s always been really laid back and easy: when we find ourselves in the same place we have sex 24/7 till one of us leaves town. Recently, though, things have been getting more emotional and I’ve been having feelings beyond just sexual attraction. I want to try dating him, but there is one big thing holding me…

13 Of The Funniest Things Ever Said About Self-Love

February 19, 2015

Historically, masturbation has gotten a pretty bad rap. It’s been said that jerking-off can cause blindness, will make you impotent or infertile, can lead to mental illness, or, arguably the worst of them all, will result in you burning in eternal hellfire. However, that hasn’t seemed to deter most of you. I personally have never touched myself, so I’m off the hook no matter what happens, unlike you perverts. Below are 13 of the best things ever said about masturbation. 1.…

Tenga Sex Toy Giveaway

November 29, 2014

As some of you know, I’ve been hosting the new season of the VICE web series, People Who Just Had Sex. The show is sponsored by Tenga, the Japanese sex toy brand. I’m a big fan of Tenga because they make discrete vibrators that aren’t so fucking loud that they ruin the whole experience of sex (as many vibrators do). I also like the aesthetic of Tenga’s toys–for example, they did a line of mens toys that came in Keith Haring-print cases,…

Hands On

May 30, 2012

Drawings by Kate Merry For the latest issue of Twin magazine I wrote an essay based on a new book about masturbation titled With the Hand. To be honest the books isn’t that great, so I don’t recommend you run out and buy it. Instead just read my article, which is essentially just me rambling about touching myself. With the Hand: A History of Masturbation is a new book by the Dutch urologist and sexologist, Mels Van Driel. The book explores…

Dating 101: Sex Therapy

April 7, 2012

So you know how I give out sex advice on my blog all the time, and how I just generally discuss sex as if I know what I’m talking about? Well, (surprise!) I’m not actually qualified to be giving anyone advice about anything ever. Woops! To better equip myself to answering your (and my own) sex questions, I decided it would be a good idea to speak with the professional sexpert, June Tomaso-Wood. June is a psychotherapist who specializes in…
