Doughnut on a Penis: The Weird History of Cosmo's Most Infamous Sex Tip

Doughnut on a Penis: The Weird History of Cosmo's Most Infamous Sex Tip | Sex History | Scoop.it

When Kate White became editor in chief of Cosmopolitan in 1998, she worried that she’d quickly run out of ideas to fill the magazine’s monthly quota of blissfully sinful secrets that will blow your man’s mind. In White’s 14 years at the helm, the magazine valiantly reached for an electric toothbrush, a string of pearls, a hair scrunchie, a handful of refrigerated marbles, edible body paint, tomato sauce, and “a small bit of mango” to introduce Cosmo readers—and their unsuspecting boyfriends—to unprecedented levels of sexual innovation. But in the summer of 2003, White landed on a sexual accessory so unforgivably weird that it would come to exemplify the ludicrousness of Cosmo sex tips forever. “99 Ways to Touch Him: These Fresh, Frisky Tips Will Thrill Every Inch of Your Guy,” White wrote on the magazine’s June cover, then teased: “(Our Favorite Requires a Glazed Doughnut).”

nterpreting Gender and Sexuality at Historic Sites


On a 2013 study trip to historic sites in and around Boston, hosted by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, participants were struck by the wide variety of ways they saw gender and sexuality interpreted--or in some cases, not interpreted at all. The trip prompted a number of interesting questions, which representatives from the Pew Center together with members and friends of the National Collaborative for Women's History Sites would now like to raise and discuss with other public historians. Toward that end, a session will explore these issues at the upcoming meeting of the National Council on Public History.


The questions to be considered there include: Where is the interpretation of gender and sexuality in 2013/2014? How do we move beyond the "just add women and stir" model of gender interpretation? How do we build on the progress made at a small number of historic sites now interpreting LGBT history? What is the future of gender and sexuality at historic sites?


Please take a moment to reflect on these questions, and help inform a larger discussion

NSFW Actors Who Have Done Full Frontal Nudity

NSFW Actors Who Have Done Full Frontal Nudity | Sex History | Scoop.it

With Valentine’s Day in the air, attention is often lavished on the fairer sex. That's not what this post is about.

There are various websites dedicated to bringing you every example of your favorite actress's nude scenes in film, red carpet “wardrobe malfunctions” and limo-exiting crotch shots. However, there is considerably less information for those looking for a glimpse of full frontal male nudity. 

This is especially surprising considering the amount of full-frontal nudity that exists in Hollywood films, and the caliber of the many actors who have shown off their little guy on the big screen: Richard Gere, Kevin Bacon and Jason Segel, to name just a few. There are also those actors who seem to actively seek out roles that require them to drop trou. Harvey Keitel has bared his bits in at least four films and is evenrumored to have been thrown off Stanley Kubrick’s "Eyes Wide Shut" for taking his method acting too far with Nicole Kidman. Ewan McGregor, known as "Hollywood’s most naked actor," has appeared naked in at least five movies. There are actors such as Michael Fassbender and Vincent Gallo whose members become more famous than the films in which they star. 

This Valentines Day, we have compiled the above HIGHLY NSFW montage as a tribute to phalli on film. They are not always big, they’re not always handsome and some of them may even frighten you. But the actors attached to them were brave enough to bare all and for that, we salute them.

Study Examines Potential Evolutionary Role of “Sexual Regret” in Human Survival and Reproduction

Study Examines Potential Evolutionary Role of “Sexual Regret” in Human Survival and Reproduction | Sex History | Scoop.it

In the largest, most in-depth study to date on regret surrounding sexual activity, a team of psychology researchers found a stark contrast in remorse between men and women, potentially shedding light on the evolutionary history of human nature...

 

“Prior sex researchers have focused primarily on the emotion of sexual attraction in sexual decisions,” Buss says. “These studies point to the importance of a neglected mating emotion —sexual regret — which feels experientially negative but in fact can be highly functional in guiding adaptive sexual decisions.”

While the regret is tied to biological imperatives, the pattern held with LGBT participants as well.

Birth Control's Journey Through History Starring Pillamina

Birth Control's Journey Through History Starring Pillamina | Sex History | Scoop.it

by JACQULINE M, WomenAreWatching

 

Last year, Pillamina was on a mission to make birth control with no co-pay a reality under the new health care law — and she succeeded! But despite last year’s victory, politicians and opponents of women’s health are still trying to take birth control away, inspiring Pillamina to make her triumphant return.

PIllamina has been present for almost every important moment in women’s history — access to birth control has made a huge difference for women and families both in the United States and around the world. We thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and trace PIllamina’s journey through the last 52 years. Slideshow!
