Sunday Sex Reads: Best of the Week

“But what of the experience? For VR porn to really take off, it has to offer something the free, frictionless world of PornHub can’t. If firmware updates, sideloading and troubleshooting shoddy software turn you on, you’re in luck! … but, at the very least, it’s still “the biggest niche since MILF.””

File under: When the dick is so bomb you’re like, whatever. “When Jessica found non-monogamy, she arrived there in a purely unintellectual way. “I didn’t read The Ethical Slut or Sex at Dawn or whatever manifestos people like to credit with opening their minds about the traditions of dating. I had a dry spell that was getting unbearable, and a cute married guy on Tinder messaged me at a weak moment.””

“In many ways, Geisha Monroe and Mandy Morbid are typical Twitch streamers—they’re gamers who share their play experiences with an online following. They cosplay, they collect game-related memorabilia, they tweet Overwatch memes. And like most streamers, Twitch isn’t their job. But what does pay their bills makes them unusual among Twitch streamers: they’re cam performers.”

“I’m young, Māori and a sex worker … I live in a capitalist economy where everything is privately owned, and if you don’t own anything then you’re stuck working for the people who do. My body isn’t capable of working a 40 hour week, nor allowing me to become qualified at something that pays well. I’m disabled from working, and I’m part of a society that doesn’t take care of people like me, people like my daughter.”

“For years, I have worked as a therapist with hundreds of couples who have been shattered by infidelity. And my conversations about affairs have not been confined within the cloistered walls of my therapy practice; they’ve happened on airplanes, at dinner parties, at conferences, at the nail salon, with colleagues, with the cable guy, and of course, on social media. From Pittsburgh to Buenos Aires, Delhi to Paris, I have been conducting an open-ended survey about infidelity.”

“In the first episode of the space drama “The Expanse,” two characters are getting busy when the artificial gravity malfunctions. Elegantly, the pair floats up into the air, their cosmic coitus uninterrupted by the glitch, until the gravity slams back on and they collapse onto the bed below. As it turns out, sex in microgravity is a bit more complicated than that and other onscreen depictions might have you believe.”

Warning for survivors of sexual assault and trauma. “Nine years ago, when I was 16, I was raped by a stranger. It coloured the way I experienced sex for a long time, and to some extent it still does, but after years of fighting battles with my past, I now have something that I once thought was impossible: a healthy relationship with sex.”

Warning for survivors of sexual trauma or abuse. “There’s one question that almost everyone with a penis wants an answer to: How much is it worth? Unfortunately, finding out usually involves a tragedy. On Monday, a man in Gloucester, England, reportedly severed his penis in a freak accident involving a saw.
