A boy I dated in high school once told me that his all-male sex ed. class was briefed about the mysteries of female reproductive system and menstrual cycle. So what exactly was the lesson that he took away from that and eagerly shared with me?
“The teacher said that it’s impossible to have sex with girls when they’re on their periods because they get too bitchy.”
It’s been a decade since that conversation, but the rage caused by it still burns hot inside of me. When it comes to sexual education in schools, I blame ignorant remarks like that, in addition to the lack of correct information, funding, resources, and patience, for turning out scores of confused and clueless teenagers, who grow up to be confused and clueless adults. Some of the most important sex ed. lessons are then learned through practice, where making a tiny mistake could lead to huge consequences – anything from bruised egos, awkward moments and hurt feelings to embarrassing 2am ER trips, unplanned pregnancies, and preventable STIs.
Unfortunately, there are still many myths and misunderstandings about sex and sexuality floating around. Here are some of the most ridiculous and terrifying things I’ve heard people say:
Fortunately, June is Adult Sex Ed. Month. It’s a collection of articles, videos, podcasts, and infographics that focus on the educational aspects of sex. Whatever questions and curiosities you feel were ignored in your high school sex ed. classes are more than welcome during the Adult Sex Ed. Month. You can find all the answers on www.adultsexedmonth.com.
And in case you're wondering, a little menstrual mess shouldn't be the reason to avoid good consensual sexy fun. All you need is showers, towels, vinyl sheets, wet wipes, and protection, of course!

All my life I’ve been told to get my mind out of the gutter. “No!” I say, exasperated by the slight thought of clean thinking.
We’re human but we all have animal instincts. This brings up the thought of sex -- ahhh!-- my favourite subject.
Did you know that having dirty thoughts can improve your sex life? For example, thinking about sex while you're stuck in traffic or picturing what you want to do sexually to your partner when you get home can send your endorphins into an all-time high. When your mind is in a euphoric state, it sends those warm fuzzy feelings downtown. All of a sudden, you’re clenching your legs together or adjusting your pants. Either way, it’s a damn good feeling! Keep at it and by the time you get home, you’re going to want to push your partner up against the wall, jump on top, and thrust.
Added toppings, as I like to call them, are always helpful to increase your stamina. This can include the following:
Sexting: The ultimate and popular tease.
Pics: Take a sexy selfie next time you go to the bathroom to show your partner what’s coming.
Sex articles: This will help you get even more into the mood. Hey, you can even read one of our blogs to help you along.
The list can go on. Just have fun with it!

I’m sure we’ve all been there: You spend too much money on sexy lace, fancy bras or panties that you just can’t live without, and 30 seconds into your play time, your man rips everything right off. You’re left saying “What the what?” All that work for nothing!
You don’t always need to spend hundreds of dollars on lingerie. Men are quite easy to please. They love every ounce of you: Your curves, your smell, every hole on your body, and that sexy mouth of yours.
So let’s get creative, ladies! Here are some ideas for those on a budget:
Cheap pantyhose: Instead of taking these off, let him rip them off you. Better yet, keep them on during your play and just rip the necessary holes where needed.
Halloween costumes: Perfect for a little sexy time! They were all just sitting in your closet anyway, right?
The man shirt: You can do a little re-enactment of Tom Cruise’s outfit from the movie Risky Business. Every man loves the look of an over-sized dress shirt on a woman. To make it sexier, you can always match it with a pair of thigh highs (ooh lala!) and unbutton the top buttons for some cleavage. Whether big or small, bring those girls out to play.
Everything but the kitchen sink: Anything in your fridge or pantry can be brought to the bedroom. However, let’s keep in mind that certain foods, like sardines and old mayo, may not be up to par. Like I said, get creative.
Most of all, enjoy yourself! Float your boat and his. Just remember you’re a sexy wildcat, so let out your animalistic nature!

We're very excited to announce the launching of our new fully responsive website for the 2014-2015 show season. The homepage will be the first to roll out with the update and all the show sites will follow soon after. We've also added a blog to our homepage to keep you up to date with all things sexy!
Designing mobile first was a very important step for us because of the staggering increase in mobile/tablet traffic over the last few years. Even just comparing our 2011 Toronto site analytics to our most recent 2013 show you can see the massive shift from desktop to tablet and mobile.
The above led us to start from scratch and redesign everything from the ground up focusing on a mobile first design making use of progressive enhancement (web design buzz words meaning that our core design is for mobile devices and then if we detect that the device is a tablet/desktop we add features if they are supported). This allowed us to make use of many new and amazing technologies while keeping a wide array of supported devices.
If you notice any errors, mistakes, or typos feel free to email me directly email@example.com and I'll get them fixed.

In case you haven't heard yet, May is International Masturbation Month. But I'm not about to tell you to go screw yourself.
Don’t get me wrong: I'm all for the midnight jerks to battle insomnia and slippery shower wanks to manage your stress. However, like so many other aspects of our daily lives and relationships, these “me-moments” often become repetitive, and lose all sense of hormone-induced euphoria, excitement, and adventure.
Instead, to celebrate this International Masturbation Month, I urge you to take some time out of yoru busy schedule and love yourself.
Silence your phone and hang a sock on your doorknob.
Put on some sweet sensual slow jams.
Light some candles.
Feed yourself some peaches and cream.
Watch some porn.
Discover your body all over again -- all of its nooks, folds, and pink bits.
Don't hold back.
