The Myth of the Strapless Strap-On
When I first ventured into the land of lady-on-lady loving I was enamored with the idea of a strapless strap-on. No obnoxious straps. No lost parts. Just yummy direct skin-on-skin contact, mutual penetration and toe curling clitoral friction! What else could a young lesbo dream of?
If you have never seen one of these bad boys, head to a sex shop and give them a look. There are two models that you are likely to find; the Feeldoe and a model by Fun Factory. By inserting and clenching the “the short, curved bulb…into the vagina” Fun Factory says that you will have an “unbeatable sexual experience” completely free of messy straps. If you have ever played with a normal strap-on, you know how difficult it can be; complicated twisted straps make it difficult to get on, clasps suddenly give way moments before orgasm and if your angles aren’t just right that dildo flops around all over the place.
For years, I have dreamt of endless nights of fucking with one of these god-sends. Finally, several penetration-weary partners later, I got my chance! After going heavy on the foreplay and free flowing with lube it was time for the main event.
How dare they call this monstrosity a ‘bulb’! A bulb sounds like the beginnings of a delicate blossom; something tiny and shaped like a sperm. But ohhh no, that is not what it was. Attempting to insert this enormous strangely shaped beach ball into my lady flower felt like I was playing an aggressive game of Tetris with machetes.
No pain, no gain- on we go! After thanking the all mighty Sapphic god that my babymaker didn’t rip while getting this thing in, and grateful that my cries of pain hadn’t killed the mood too much, the tapered edge initially kept it comfortably in place while beginning to get our groove on. I must admit that there is nothing more satisfying that playing with this toy. If you are on the receiving end, feeling the tender skin of your lover so close to you and hearing their sighs of her pleasure is incredible. As a giver it is AMAZING! ...for about 30 seconds. With every thrust you get a triple shot of pleasure; the moans of your lover, the contact with your clit and perfect aim right to your g-spot. With that much going on, the moisture level amplifies incredibly… and thus comes the searing pain. Regardless of how hard you try to clench your PVCs, you are going to get dangerously wet and this thing is going to slip out. It hurts going in and boy does it hurts falling out. Worse, noticing that you are slowly losing grasp of this toy as your lover’s cries become sharper and shorter is a tragedy all on its own.
I’ve taken a general poll and it seems that most women I know either gave up on this toy, use it with a harness, or sport a snug fitting pair of underwear to support it. Tragically, I must dispel the myth of the strapless strap-on. Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend you give this toy a try: just with a harness.
Dive deep into new sounds of Montreal as you discover Tibe's latest single titled "Fluvial". This trap-infused beat is fully moisterized with bells and bass-drops that will have you breaking your neck as you bump to it effortlessly. Other than being known in the underground scene from playing shows at your local spots, Tibe has a strong community of support on soundcloud.

Directed by Arthur King, the latest music video from Christine and the Queens is simplistic, yet effective in its own form. It seems as though cars in water will be an on-going trend for 2016, as we've seen it pop up various times (including Beyonce's latest video for "Formation") - Although portraying a different meaning completely this time, it was nice to see the video director concentrate on the artists by creating a universe that is calm, yet beautiful in itself. The featuring of french...

Whether or not this following assumption plays into this whole 'dumb-ass stereotypes about what makes a woman a lesbian' is irrelevant. I mean, stating that a woman with nails isn't a lesbian is just well, ridiculous, but having killer acrylic claws pounded finger deep inside of you... that's no joke. A woman's nails aren't only helpful cues when eliminating hopefuls at a bar, but they also give you an unexpected look at one's personality. Here is my take on Jenna Marble's 'What a girl's nails...

What is it with the internet nowadays that makes people feel entitled to share their negative opinions? Is it the screen blocking you from getting your ass beat, or do you feel a sense of entitlement to be a dick? Either way, I find that we are in need of a few guidelines on how to approach commenting on the web without sounding like pretentious pricks. 1. No One Cares if You Think Their Content "Sucks" "You're ____ sucks," is honestly the most constructive criticism a person could ever come...

Every so often I find myself at Remmingtons, a sexy party hub that's the only place you can find male exotic dancers in the plight of downtown Toronto. A part of the Yonge Street strip club scene, Remmingtons is a refreshing change of pace (and scenery) from the big-time favourites like the Brass Rail or Zanzibar. What's great about this club is that it's not limited to a bunch of beefcake dancers with hard-to-handle shlongs (though there's a wide variety), I've also spotted a few boy-next-door...

For the millionth time, a brave girl comes forward about her traumatizing rape at a university campus and the school administration thinks that it's “not a big deal,” and that they'll simply teach the assailant to not rape people next time. This happened to Tucker Reed who went to the University of Southern California officials after her ex-boyfriend raped her. The officials did nothing except tell her that although he wouldn't be punished, he would be educated. I'm hoping that by "...
