I promise you this site will boggle your mind. Hands down the most insane condoms I have ever seen in my life. Hand painted? Lights? Music? What would you do if someone rolled one of these on when you were getting hot and heavy? First off you would have to put a condom on the condom to keep from getting paint chips all up in you. The lights and sound only go off when the tip is touched. Wouldn't the music get all muffled? And this of course leaves the question, ... Read More

Maya Hayuk is a Brooklyn based muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator and all around bad-ass. I'd seen her impressive murals before, but had no idea that her art was so expansive until Alison F. sent me this fascinating/funny/inspiring video interview she did with Etsy.

Not only is Maya a popular ... Read More

The film breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anesthetized women.
The filmmakers need funds to finish this film, and you can help!!!
At Your Cervix is currently one of ... Read More

Stop me if you've heard this one before. 'I can't find a condom that fits me...so lets just not worry about it.' In an effort to give every dude a snug fit, German sex- ed teacher Jan Vinzenz Krause is working on developing a spray on condom. 'The prototype, which began testing last year, consists of a hard plastic tube with nozzles that spray liquid latex from all directions, much like the water jets in the tunnel of a car wash.' Unfortunately the prototype is ... Read More

About a year ago I saw this infomercial and was confused, intrigued, but also completely amused. I had forgotten about it until recently when former 'tern, Alison F. reminded me of it's weirdness. But although this commercial seems strange, it is not a joke! For too many years, drivers and passengers have suffered from the stiffness of their seat belts cutting into their shoulders. This has been a serious problem, and thank goodness somebody has finally come up ... Read More
