Faces of Ecstasy: Orgasm as Art

As a sex educator and therapist, as well as a performing artist, I am always interested in artistic depictions of sex and sexuality. In my explorations, I’ve found two art projects that explore a similar theme: the depiction of orgasm as a meditation on art and culture. I know this sounds like all artsy pornography that’s ever been produced. However, these two artists have come up with a way of exploring the art of orgasm in a new way: without nudity or visible penetration. First, there’s Beautiful Agony (NSFW). Continue Reading →

Fun Toys G-Vibe Review

I’ve reviewed a lot of sex toys. After a certain point, it seems like you’ve seen everything: there’s only so much you can do to make a dildo more than a dildo. So I’m always pleasantly surprised when I get to review a truly innovative sex toy. With that, I present the Fun Toys G-Vibe from My Secret Luxury. Though it looks like an oddly-hued duck bill, the unique double-flare shape of this toy makes for some serious creativity. Continue Reading →

Product Review: Renew Toy Revitalizing Cleanser

Our friends over at Good Vibrations recently sent me a new product to review. It’s like Christmas all over again! The Renew Toy Revitalization Cleanser is such a handy little thing! Forget about interrupting sexy times to run to the bathroom to clean a toy- a swift pump of this little spray bottle and you’re good to go! This comes in handy especially if you share a bathroom- I can’t tell you how awkward it is to try to clean a sex toy in a dormitory bathroom. You get all kinds of weird looks. Continue Reading →

Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe 3

We-Vibe 3

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Good Vibrations, I bring to you a brand new toy review! The We-Vibe 3 Couple’s Vibrator is the third in a fantastic series of partner toys. This tiny silicone vibrator offers dual stimulation in two ways (internal/external, you/partner), and packs quite a punch! With this third model, they’ve amped up the power of the vibrations and extended the battery life. What I love:

It’s just so cute! Continue Reading →

Can Porn Cause Headaches?

I recently found an article about a man who gets severe headaches from watching porn. Now, some people get headaches post-orgasm, whether porn was involved or not, so I was intrigued. The man in question is 24 years old, and typically when he has been watching pornography for 8-10 minutes he gets a headache so severe, he needs to stop watching. In this man’s case, it is speculated that his headaches are, “caused by changes in the pain-sensing nerves in the face and jaw, along with increased pain sensitivity due to ‘a heightened emotional state associated with viewing pornography.’” The article also states that there is still much that is unknown about headaches that occur with sex. The cure for the man in the article? Continue Reading →

A Drink to Help You Orgasm?

I’ve become so accustomed to the bombardment of flavored drinks claiming to heighten my daily performance that I usually pass them over…but something about the name “NeuroGasm” made me stop to pause. A friend of mine stumbled across the drink (now called NeuroPassion) in her campus store, and I just couldn’t help but blog about it!  Maybe it’s the fact that the label boasts the drink’s ability to “support the pleasure response,” or maybe it was just that the bottle is remarkably phallic, but I knew I had to do some deeper digging. So, here’s the lowdown on NeuroGasm! The drink is manufactured by NeuroDrinks, a company that claims to:

“offer consumers an alternative to products that perpetuate our self-medicating caffeine-dependent society. Designed to sustain and enhance your active lifestyle with natural ingredients, each beverage is packed with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and botanicals at dosages backed by scientific research.

Our New Research: Women’s Exercise-Induced Orgasms

Our new study about women’s experiences of having exercise-induced orgasms is out and makings its way around the Interwebs. You can read the release below, find more detailed information about exercise-induced orgasms (what some call “coregasms”) in my brand new book Sex Made Easy, and you can also ask  me questions about our research by emailing me at DrDebby@MySexProfessor.com. I’ll be answering questions about our study here and/or on my Psychology Today blog later this week. **

Sex Toys: The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

The holidays are upon us, and if you’re like me and put off buying gifts until the very last minute – the fact that Christmas is less than a week away may be stressing you out a bit. But fret no more MSP’ers, because I’ve got the perfect solution for your stocking stuffer dilemma:
SEX TOYS. Now obviously if you’re buying gifts for your grandmother, or perhaps – your boss, this will likely NOT be a good gift route to take (even if your grandmother is sex toy positive, she may not want to get one from you, her grandchild). But if you’re looking for an item to give your partner, sex toys are where it’s at. Plus, gift giving is the perfect opportunity for introducing sex toys to the relationship (no matter what holiday you celebrate!). Continue Reading →
