Pastiegirl’s Pasties: Not Just for Nips

In this video I start my weekly series of sex product reviews. Every Wednesday I’ll be posting a new sex product video review, shot on location at the location of my choice (mainly my office or surrounding areas). This week, 4.28.10, I’m starting with the nipple-loving pasties from I’m shooting these reviews in one take: no script, no editing, just me and my digital camera. It’s part a time thing and part just a way to keep me having to flow, can you go with that?

NOTE: Format is subject to change as the reviews continue. Just wanted to put that out there before I review products that may help you put out.

Domestic Violence is so Undomesticated!

With reports circulating that Jenna Jameson may have been the latest public figure to fall victim to domestic abuse (although this YourTango article says she did drop her kids off to go party with friends in Vegas, and that she may be addicted to Oxycontin and in turn may be trying to cover up her addiction with charges of battering), I thought it would be helpful to post some useful links just in case you’re a victim of the kind of violence that affects approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men annually in the United States alone.

That’s a lot of making war, not love, on the homefront.

Here are some resources for you, or someone you love, should they need (and are ready) to get help.

Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

Check out this informative Women’s Law website.

And the National Network to End Domestic Violence site lists state coalitions against DV.

I’m definitely thinking twice (heck, three times) about how I look at, and eat, my fruits, veggies and other, more processed food products.

The perfect strawberry-banana combo

Five Ways to “Eco-fy” Your Sex Life

It’s Earth Day and you’ve likely heard this before, but it’s always worth saying again, especially when it comes to greening your sex life.

1. Recycle your dead or unwanted vibrators, because really, you can. Places like Love Honey will recycle your used Rabbit Vibe and Sex Toy Recycling will take a lot more of your sex toys, but please remember to wash them first please.

2. Help reduce landfill waste by buying sex toys that don’t require batteries, like rechargeable vibrators, paddles, dildos and butt plugs, or use rechargeable batteries for those beloved battery-operated devices. Recycled batteries are the kind that you plug into the wall to re-juice.

3. Buy less, but more of what you want. We all have way more stuff than we need, so instead of purchasing a myriad of less expensive products, find two or three higher-end toys that rock your world. Check out the Pure Wand by njoy (it’s stainless steel, boilable and doesn’t vibrate), JimmyJane’s Form Six or Form Two (the company is the most eco-conscious sex toy manufacturer I know and both vibes are rechargeable) and SpareParts harnesses, for products that take a licking and keep on ticking.

4. Use expired condoms for other things like storage bags, waterproofing your cell phone and water balloon fights.

5. Instead of driving around today, spend the day in bed, having sex. You’ll contribute to reducing at least a certain type of emission!

Smoke up, sit back and enjoy the sex news that really isn’t making news anymore. It’s So Last Week the 4.20 edition, but it has little to do with reefer.

Coachella 2010: Groups to Groove By

So Last Week returns tomorrow, so it’s even older news!! (Isn’t that exciting?) Tonight I’m back in front of the camera, talking about Coachella 2010 and some of the sexiest sites I saw, the sexiest being the voice that is Beth Ditto.

And if you didn’t see my John Waters tweets they are worth reading. The man is pure brilliance and he looooooves to talk about sex.

Lady Gaga, Celibacy and Me

Lady Gaga says blah-blah on celibacy. I couldn’t agree with her more.

Lady Gaga, whom I now have the utmost respect for after reading this article, has recently “come out” about her choice to not have sex.

“I’m single right now and I’ve chosen to be single because I don’t have the time to get to know anybody. So it’s OK not to have sex, it’s OK to get to know people. I’m celibate, celibacy’s fine.”

As a sex educator who has, for the past seven months, struggled with my own teaching verse doing, I couldn’t agree more. For me, having just emerged from six months of celibacy, I can say “man, I needed that!” It was a chance and a choice to regroup and reevaluate what I want out of my self and my sex. Sometimes we all need space from other people and I needed space from being in my space with them. It’s not like I didn’t have sex with myself, I just chose to keep it within the confines of me and my accoutrements. And when I finally did have sex, it was someone I knew well enough to know I wanted to know him better.

Bottle Girl Service

I am so not VIP. I had no idea about the world of bottle service, and the ways of the sales-associate bottle girl. I knew this world existed, but that’s about as far as it goes. I had no idea there was the baiting and the hooking and all that jazz. I mean I know things happen, strange things (I’ve been around enough of what may not be considered “normal” in both my work and my every day city life)  but I was fascinated by what I thought was the current, but now I know it’s last week’s New York magazine article Rachel Uchitel is Not a Madam. (One important thing I did learn is that my subscription to New York comes a week later in LA).

I think Rachel Uchitel sounds smart, except for when it came to answering “yes!” about posing naked for the photographer for NY mag. Can you imagine Tiger Woods posing in nothing but one of those golf club cozy thing-a-ma-jigs over his willy for an article about his sexual habits? In this article, Uchitel doesn’t really talk about the Tiger thing she’s not talking about, and that’s in large and obvious part to what Allred’s daughter calls  ”Mr. Green” and friends, instead she talks about the world of VIP status.
