Anyone want to try the G-shot?

By now most women have heard of the G-shot. But in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, the G-shot is essential a collagen injection to the G-spot which is designed to make sex even better.

The procedure takes place using a specially designed speculum, it’s approved by America’s FDA and studies show that 87% of women report increased sexual satisfaction. From this year, it’ll be available in Ireland.

It’s expected that the procedure will cost somewhere in the region of a thousand euros, but here’s your chance to get it for free.

The distributors are looking for some brave Irish women to give it a go. Ideally you should be in your thirties and sexually healthy, but keen to give your sex life a boost. There’s only one catch – you’ve got to be prepared to discuss your experiences publicly.

If anyone is interested, just post a comment below. This will give me your email address and I’ll pass it on.

Orgasm on the go

I’m fond of my Rabbit vibrator, possibly too fond, and that’s why I’m pretty sure that the Rabbit Travel Vibe is a bad idea. This little device plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter so you can come as you go. Far too distracting, methinks. But it would be kind of fun to hear our politician debating whether or not these should be outlawed. After all, it is hands-free.

More sex predicted for 2009

The Futurist magazine reckons we’ll be having more sex in 2009. Before you start to celebrate (particularly any celibate folk), I should warn you that the futurologists have based this prediction on women’s growing economic power. Hmmm… I wasn’t aware the credit crunch was some form of male-only economic disease, but phew! This power will apparently enable women to make more choices and what we’ll choose is sex. Okay, obviously there is a correlation between women’s economic independence and sexual permissiveness, but I can’t really see how the chance of earning a few more quid is going to contribute to general levels of sex in the next 12 months – unless we use or lovely, recession-proof female earning power to buy men.

Also contributing to the general horniness of the world, many Americans are predicted to stop taking anti-depressants this year. Anti-depressants are a big libido dampener and over 100+million Americans have prescriptions for them.

On a slightly different note, The Futurist also reckons flying cars may be on the way…

Polyamory: Yes or No?

I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on polyamory? For those not in the know, polyamorous folk have multiple relationships. This can be in a group situation, which may or may not be bisexual, or they may have primary and secondary relationships – you know, a husband, a long-term lover and a casual boyfriend as well.

Polyamorists aren’t swingers and they don’t generally have open relationships – it’s not as simple as shacking up with whomever you fancy. Instead it’s more like an exclusive club and often any potential new member will be vetted to see how he or she will get on with the others.

Love is important, monogamy isn’t. Polyamorists believe that monogamy is an unnatural social system, and that the concomitant deceit and betrayal are what’s really destructive so they try to bypass all the heartache, divorce, custody and legal battles that serial monogamy often entails. They also believe that love is an infinite resource and it’s unfair to expect one other person can supply all your needs. Equally important, polyamorists often function as an extended family, sharing domestic and childrearing duties.

As a lifestyle choice, it’s not one many people would consider, but I wonder why that is? Would jealousy and favouritism inevitably occur? Are human beings programmed to form pairs? Could sex become routine even with a number of long-term multiple partners anyway? How would you decide who shares your bed at Christmas, New Years or your birthday?

OK, it wouldn’t be for me. I’m not a jealous person in general, but you never know. I’ve had a partner who was equally involved with someone else (well, as far as I know…) so it’s hard to predict.

Mostly though – and this is going to sound terrible but it’s the truth – it just sounds like too much hard work. But that’s probably because I like to spend a fair amount of time alone. Polyamorist groups often draw up schedules so that everyone gets plenty of quality time with each other – kind of like sexual and non-sexual playdates. Company and conversation are lovely, but not too much of it, thanks. If you haven’t seen one of your partners for a week, you probably couldn’t ignore them (in a loving, companionable way of course) and read a book.

I am curious though. Has anyone tried polyamory or another alternative lifestyle? If so, how did it work? Does it sound appealing or disastrous? Opinions please!

Sex Vs The Net

When I was in college one of my friends would bombard me with silly questions such as if you had to give up sex or chocolate, which would you choose? Well, here’s one about as important: would you choose the internet over sex?

The American researchers who posed the question found that an awful lot of people would. 46 percent of women and 30 percent of men would rather go without sex for 2 weeks than give up internet access for the same amount of time. Hmmm…
