Super Sexy CPR

Canadian lingerie company, Fortnight Lingerie, attempts the viral video by making a sexy how-to video teaching viewers how to perform CPR. You may learn a thing or two, but most likely you’ll be completely distracted by the scantily clad models, thrusting pelvises, and suggestive looks. Below is the video for CPR. For a slightly disturbing video on abdominal thrusts (aka the Heimlich Maneuver), screen savers, and ring tones visit

Making Health Promotion Sexy

If my personal experience is any indication, there’s a good chance that the last time you saw a health promotion campaign on TV or on a billboard, it left a sour taste in your mouth. Too many campaigns seems to rely on fear, guilt, and shame to make their point. There’s a great deal of debate in the field of Public Health about fear-based health promotion. Some think a little fear goes a long way in motivating people to make healthy decisions, but others (like myself) think that there are other, better ways of teaching – especially when it comes to sexual health. Most people have enough anxiety around sex to begin with, and more fear doesn’t necessarily equal more conscientiousness. Continue Reading →

The New Year’s Kiss

For Valentine’s day, my Special Lady Friend and I went through my extensive collection of rom-coms and decided on a classic: When Harry Met Sally.  Wading through the late 80′s fashion, Billy Crystal’s folksy wisdom, and Meg Ryan’s pastrami-plastering fake orgasm, we noted how important the New Year’s Eve kiss was to them and started to wonder how the tradition of kissing your sweetheart at the stroke of midnight got started.

Everything I Know About Sex I Learned From Star Wars

After Kate’s rocking post about Star Trek, and since I am a huge Star Wars fan, I felt it was my duty to provide the nerdy counterpoint. Rather than just providing a list of quotes from Star Wars that sound dirty but actually aren’t, I decided to take popular quotes from my favorite space opera and let you know how you could use this wisdom to improve your sex life. “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”  - Obi-Wan’s Jedi Mind Trick

While the power of your mind may not be able to convince your partner to do just anything, one of the most important things during sex is using your mind to enhance the experience.  While being physically fit is good for your sex life, it’s more important to have the right mindset when going into a sexual relationship.  Many of the most common sexual dysfunctions have to do with differing beliefs and/or emotions between partners.  Just like the lightsaber stuck in the snow in the wampa’s cave, using your mind can help bring you what you want, even if you don’t think you can get there.

Ashton Kutcher is Sex-Positive?

In talking about his new film with Natalie Portman No Strings Attached, Ashton Kutcher notes that “we have to stop acting like casual sex isn’t happening”. The film is about two friends that decide to hook up, commitment-free. While this is a pretty common phenomenon, it’s not often talked about. In fact, most frequently, casual sex and hooking up are portrayed very negatively. People that have casual sex, especially women, are often scrutinized for their “promiscuous” ways.

Go See It: Orgasm, Inc. Opens Today in Chicago and New York!

Liz Canner’s interesting, funny and thought-provoking film, Orgasm, Inc., opens today in New York and Chicago. The film is about women’s sexual function (think: desire, orgasm), the race among pharmaceutical companies to create a so-called “female Viagra”, and some of the media personalities (such as Dr. Laura Berman) who are positioned in the film as more into profit than women’s health. You can read reviews of the film in Variety, NPR, and the New York Times.  Not in Chicago or NYC? Lucky for you, it’s also available on Netflix. Continue Reading →

Animated Genitals And A Message About Safety

I bet “animated genitals” got your attention, didn’t it? Go watch the video (obviously NSFW) and share it to promote the message that condom use is an important feature of safe sex. But am I the only one who was bothered by the idea of using eyeliner on a bathroom wall? It’s the one thing that struck me as unrealistic about the video–apart from, ya know, the dancing and winged genitals . Follow us on Twitter @mysexprofessor. Continue Reading →
