Our Favorite Scientist Presents: The Sexual Spectrum

In the recent Santa Cruz heat, it's almost felt too hot to move. I've spent many days off work holed up in my house, trying not to melt all over the room and cause a mess. For those days when you are too sweaty and icky to move, Netflix is a godsend! In my Netflix travels, I discovered that Bill Nye's latest TV project has come to life! Enter Bill Nye Saves the World. Aimed at a more varied and adult audience than his earlier project, Bill Nye Saves The World retains every bit of his old-school campiness and charm. So what's this got to do...

Vibrators for Outies: An Answer to "Do Men Even Like That??"

Working at Pure Pleasure, I have access to a lot of different kinds of sex toys. With respect to vibrators, I've seen that a kind of stereotype has arisen that vibrators are "for women." This really does any sex-inclined person a disservice. When many people tell me "vibrators are for women," what they mean is, "Isn't a vagina a requirement to enjoy vibration?" The short answer is, "Not even close!" Just like you might enjoy hamburgers while your friend might tend to vomit at the sight of them, there's a huge range of experiences and preferences when it comes to genital stimulation. It might surprise you to hear that...

But I'm here to give you one really easy, universal tool to help avoid sexual assault and raise your awareness: Consent!

Newcomer's Guide to Cuffs, and Why You Shouldn't Start With Metal Handcuffs

Handcuffs are a great, familiar way to bring a little fire to your sex life. But often, folks don't know where to start. As a society, we are inundated with images of stereotypical cop-dramas, and with that, metal cuffs often seem like the place to start. If this is you, you're not alone. The world of cuffs is as diverse as it is misunderstood. I'm here to shed a little light. My hope is, when you've finished reading this post, you won't be one of the many people who falls victim their first time to the extreme bite of metal cuffs. All...

Sex Toy Review: Sharevibe, by Fun Factory

It's been a long road getting to know Sharevibe, but I'm glad I did! Sharevibe is one of Pure Pleasure's offerings in double-ended dildos. It incorporates Fun Factory's rechargeable bullet. At $129.95, it's not cheap, but with its medical-grade silicone and plastic construction, it's absolutely worth every penny for the quality, and you get a 2-year warranty for the vibrating components, to boot!For members of the queer community, a few aspects of the Sharevibe make it attractive even at first glance. First, it's not penis-shaped. Not everyone wants to wear a phallus or be fucked by one! As an added bonus, the tapered shape...
