CRAVE

“I believe that sensual products should be as desirable as the act itself,” says Ti Chang, Co-Founder and CPO (Chief Pleasure Officer) at Crave. Crave is a luxury lifestyle brand that believes intimacy should be sophisticated and classy. Made in San Francisco, the good-kind kinky company combines thoughtful design with the highest quality materials and manufacturing practices to create modern products that will undoubtedly enliven sensuality and enhance intimacy.

In a world where high-tech and luxury design seem to touch every corner of our lives, the most intimate experiences should be no exception. The dominating culture in adult products can often feel cheap and sleazy, when pleasuring yourself should only feel oh-so-good.

50 Shades Busted

So, 50 Shades of Grey has suddenly made it trendy to "be kinky" or at least talk about it. But before you get to possible experimentation with your beloved, perhaps you should address some of the misinformation within the trilogy's subpar writing. Get ready for 50 shades of mythbusting.

1. Anyone who is interested in kinky sex must have had an abusive past.

Busted: A huge study in Australia proved that mental illness does not occur more frequently in the kink community. There certainly are some people that use BDSM to regain control, regarding a past trauma. There are also some that use BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism) as a way of justifying abusive behavior. But, the overwhelming majority of people who engage in kinky play are nice, normal and respectful.

Patti Stanger: How to Make Up After Break Up

Star of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker and love and relationship expert, Patti Stanger regularly dishes out dating and relationship tips to her clients and fans on her website, Pattiknows.com.

Thinking about rekindling the flame with a former love? Patti shares her take on re-exploring the already explored.

Ignore Your Heart

During messy breakups and make-ups your heart is your own worst enemy. Instead, you need to become BFFs with another organ – your brain! It’s your brain that’s going to help you think critically and make smarter decisions. Your heart is just going to want you to find someone to spoon.

Deconstructing the Amorous & Debaucherous Quests of Nightlife

You work all week, endure endless douchebaggery and idiocy, and restrain your nocturnal vivacity until the calendar reads Friday—only to be rewarded with the vapid, ravenous gauntlet of bar-light romance. These spurious, oft-desperation laden affairs commence and end within the warzone of nightclub communication. This mine-ridden field of conversation suffers from drunken logic, noise pollution, and toxic levels of loneliness—oftentimes resulting in commiserations of half-truths, flattery, and general, coquettish pandering. The subsequent hangover of disappointment, regret, and cavalier nostalgia creates a cycle of despair and frustration that continually leaves the lonesome adventurer jaded.

New PSA Wants You To Know Old People Still Do It

Plant your eyes on this one all you young whippersnappers. As much as we all want to believe that seniors sit around knitting and playing bingo, the harsh reality is that they're totally still doing it AND getting STD's! According to Safesex4seniors.org, STD occurrence among senior citizens has risen a staggering 71% in the past 5 years. But hold the collective "LOL's" and "Ewww's" because we're not done yet. The site also includes an FAQ section with guides like "Flirting with Fantasy: Toying with Toys," "10 Tips for Hot Solo Sex," and perhaps our favorite, "Dialing Up Desire: From “Not Tonight” to “Hot Tonight." What!? Say it isn't so, grandma! So much for our delusions of cute, helpless, innocent seniors!

[VIDEO] Sh!T Single Girls Say

There's been a recent spawn of hysterical videos co-produced by Juliette Lewis titled "Shit Girls Say." The videos feature a guy dressed as a girl popping off typical "girl" comments and phrases. One of our favorite scenes spotlights the phenomenon of how girls react when they see each other by running towards one another yelling "aaahh!" and embracing and jumping around. (Yes, we're all guilty of it.)

The latest video to pop up, which appears to be unrelated to the original "Shit Girls Say" series is "Shit Single Girls Say." And we must SAY, it definitely had us laughing (mostly at ourselves). Enjoy.
