Everything you ever needed to know about dolphin clitorises

Katherine Ellen Foley writes that the "complex clitorises" of dolphins are key to understanding their sex lives.

Although these preliminary findings don’t definitively prove that dolphin reproduction can also be for pleasure, they do add evidence to the argument that for dolphins, sex isn’t entirely about reproduction. Sex can serve several different functions, like social learning or establishing dominant hierarchies, says Orbach. Male calves frequently mate with their mothers, and “a lot of the [dolphin] mating we see in the wild is homosexual mating,” she says. “It could be males establishing who’s the leader in the group.”

Before Orbach and Brennan submit the study to a peer-reviewed journal, they’re waiting to find a few more dolphins that died of natural causes to add to their sample size.

Tasteful suburban real estate listing has tasteful sex dungeon

Not what you expect, but what you hope for: a sex dungeon in tasteful suburban off-white with traditional colonial woodwork and easy-wipe faux-marble flooring.

Since the time of posting, Redfin has removed the pictures of the basement from the listing, but you can see 'em all here.

In addition to being listed at $750,000, the home is apparently available "as an Air B & B rental @maisonxs that gets $750 a night on weekdays & $2000 a night on the weekends for private parties or entertainment." And indeed, the presentation in the Airbnb listing is decidedly more sultry.

Those bearskin rugs are a bad idea, if you ask me. Read the rest

Sarah Petkus' She Bon project: tech augmentation for sensing and expressing female arousal

I have followed the work of the brilliant indie hardware engineer, Sarah Petkus, for years. Her first projects to capture my attention were her delta robot army and NoodleFeet (see her YouTube feed for project videos). Sarah is an extremely talented engineer and artist whose design and fabrication skills are undeniably impressive. With her high-tech engineering skills, her unique and sincere presence, and her overall deep-geek badassery, Sarah wouldn't be out of place in a Gibson cyberpunk novel. Read the rest

Understanding consent with a cup of tea

Blue Seat Studios' Tea Consent explains the idea of sexual consent through the act of offering someone a cup of tea: it's OK to offer someone a cup of tea, but if they don't want it, then don't try to give it to them. And if they change their mind after you make them a cup of tea? That's annoying, but still, don't try to make them drink it. And unconscious people? They don't need a cup of tea.
