Sexiest Song of… The 2000’s

After three days covering 30 years of Disco decadence, Rave romance, and Trip-Hop teasing, we’re wrapping up with the first decade of the new Millennium. The 2000’s gave us plenty of music to put your hands up for and plenty we’d rather forget.

It also gave us a song by one of the sexiest rock’n’roll outfit ever assembled: Queens of the Stone Age’s 2007’s single ‘Make it Wit Chu’ wins this decade’s sexiest title for proving, once and for all, that Jonathan Swift was right: “It is observed that the red-haired of both sexes are more libidinous and mischievous than the rest.” Continue reading Sexiest Song of… The 2000’s

How do you define femininity and masculinity?

We are all familiar with the words femininity and masculinity but each of us has a different definition for them. Is a man allowed to cry? Should women wear lipstick and seductive dresses? And who does the dishes at home? We went on the streets of Groningen to ask people how they define gender roles.

Twilight of the woodsman

Like seemingly every creative profession in the world, porn is always in a state of flux, and the male porn star is never secure in his work. The rise of free, on-demand internet pornography means actors now have to work longer and harder, and for less money. But that has never deterred legions of horny young men from trying to break into the industry.

However, in the supposedly uninhibited and sexually liberated Netherlands, porn studios are finding it unusually difficult to recruit male talent.

Sexiest Song of… The 1990’s

The Nineties are here on Sexiest song of… and we’re slowing things down, dimming the lights and moving from the dancefloor to the bedroom. The decade showered us with classic R&B slow jam seduction, and serious bragging from rap lotharios and the requisite boat-riding honeys. But there’s nothing sexier than someone who knows their own mind and isn’t afraid to say what they want. That’s why this decade’s sexiest goes to Glory Box’ by Portishead: for demanding that we all “sow a little tenderness” over one of the slinkiest jazz samples on record.

It’s all just sex and games

Bouncing tits, swaying hips and hookers, all just one click away. Videogames are becoming more and more realistic and graphically impressive. One of the latest examples of this is the Witcher 3. With this level of realism and graphical capability a question rises about the place of sexual content in games. Sex has been a means of selling everything, from cars to deodorant, but where does it stand in games?

This time it’s the turn of the decade best remembered for big hair, Back to the Future, and your mum’s unsettling obsession with Bon Jovi. We’re here to talk about why Jamie Principle and Frankie Knuckles’ ‘Your Love’ deserves to be remembered as the sexiest song of the decade.

The Kosher Way to Sex

Feathered handcuffs, vibrators in all forms and sizes, lubricant, and a blue happy hippo cockring. These are items found in most sex shops, online or offline. But the products offered by better2gether are ‘kosher’, specifically aimed at Orthodox Jews and they have one function: offering a helping hand in the devout’s bedroom.

But what exactly makes them ‘kosher’? Continue reading The Kosher Way to Sex

“I hereby pronounce you married dudes”

Emma and Regina’s wedding was celebrated in a friend’s pub. There were rose bouquets, best men and bridesmaids. There was proper wedding music and the master of ceremonies stood on a little stage set for the event. Solemn vows were pronounced, rings were exchanged and there were tears of joy during the kiss that ratified the union.

But this wasn’t a traditional wedding. It was a Dudeist one. Continue reading “I hereby pronounce you married dudes”
