Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 39: Sign O’ The Times

Can you feel the thaw? Spring is here and the Wonks are ready to frolic – so come play with us! While Rosa’s got a glimmer of hope for…well, you know… Ed’s got to ask “real or not real?” as he shares about his latest virtual boyfriend, an 18-year-old man-child he met on Craigslist.

Where’s the love? The Wonks have discovered that the mainstream cinema sex scene is going the way of the Velociraptor. Why? Because while the current marketing trend in movies is toward horny teenaged boys, ironically the MPAA keeps Hollywood from showing them too much T ‘n’ A – the emphasis is on a different kind of explosion.

Danger Will Robinson! The Wonks have discovered that there may be no such thing as safe sex in space. Recent experiments by Montreal University on plants show that changes in gravity damages cells – and could lead to life-threatening illnesses. If Virgin Galactic is successful and starts flying tourists to suborbital space next year as they hope, let’s hope they provide complimentary condoms with each ticket sold.

Get some wood to save some wood. How, you ask? Ed has found a film created by Polish filmmaker Michal Marczak, that chronicles the Berlin-based organization Fuck for Forest—a raggedy group of hippies dressed like the Lost Boys who film and then sell homemade pornography of themselves and others in an effort to help save the rainforests. This sounds like an eco-movement we could get behind—both figuratively and literally.

The Wonks believe that penises are a part of the new pharma! Why? Because the FDA has recently approved an over-the-counter topical spray to treat premature ejaculation. Can you say tardy to the party? Such creams and sprays have long been available from manufacturers of creams and lubes. So, what’s the point?

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 38: What Not to Do

Dude! Rosa needs to slow her roll. ‘Cause dude! She’s met a dude (on-line anyway) and she’s afraid that she may be moving a little too fast. Duuude! She needs to check herself.

And in a new segment that the Wonks hope to make a regular feature—Drunken Sexting Theatre—Ed and Rosa reenact their own version of texts from last night. Can they keep it together long enough to get through their reading without cracking each other up? But is this sexting real or just a playful fantasy being shared between friends?

In a classic example of what not to do, Ed found a recent article in the on-line version The Daily Mirror about a photographer who was killed as part of a blind date that included “sex games”. The article states, “Detectives called to the address found various items in the living room which suggested sexual activity had taken place.” in what was called a “life style” incident. We wanna know what those items were!

It looks like the TSA is getting kinky as well. According to an article in the on-line New York Post the TSA guys are hard on sex toys—and not in a good way. Several TSA agents have left creepy notes after searching bags and finding sex toys. However, the TSA acknowledges that there’s nothing illegal about traveling with the devices (well, thank goodness for that!).

And in another story from across the pond, Ed and Rosa have found a story of what not to do when you’re cougar on the hunt. In a story published in the on-line version of The Sun, Adam Cope, 20, claimed he was seduced by Helen Hart, 44, and the expensive gifts she lavished upon him. Ms. Hart told him she was an heiress to a £48 million fortune. Long story short, Helen was not only a cougar, but she was fraud! She was cooking the books of her former employer to keep her boy toy in bling. Helen was caught, arrested and given five years for her crime. Traumatized by the incident, Adam turned over all gifts to the police and flew to Australia, where he has been working in a copper mine. He’s stated: “Now I want to forget that I ever met Helen.”

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 37: It’s Shocking

At the top of the episode Rosa fears that she may be shark bait due to being our favorite bloody Valentine. Getting to know him? Ed and Rosa discuss his fears around a developing long distance relationship with a new virtual boyfriend (NVB). While the pressure is on for the upcoming initial visit of Ed’s NVB, the upside of the OKC mind fuck is that Ed’s long distance suitor is open to kinky sex.

In a recent email, the NVB sent Ed a link to a video on Mr. S Leather.com demonstrating the use of an erotic electrostimulation device. And exactly what is e-stim you might ask? The Wonks explain a slightly different use of electricity than Nikola Tesla might’ve had in mind. Despite the risks and cost of the accouterments, Ed has a keen interest in exploring it.

Shocking in another respect is a story from LA where the city is “going green” in a different way. In the Harbor Gateway and Wilmington communities of LA, the city counsel is hoping to exploit a California law to force sex offenders out these neighborhoods. Ever more shocking is a case in Vermont regarding sexual slavery. This story gives new meaning to being a first responder.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 36: Can’t Buy Me Love

Newsflash! Rosa’s got tits and a newly lasered cooch. And why does Rosa have a freshly lasered cooch you ask dear listeners? Ms. Sparks has the potential for a hot date! And while Rosa’s potentially hot date lives a couple of hours away, Ed’s lives a half a continent away. But hey, you takes the good with the bad as Rosa and Ed discuss.

Can money buy love or at the very least good sex? Ummm, perhaps not according to some women. In a survey done by “All You” magazine more than 50 percent of the respondents said they’d give up sex for  six months to save $2,500. However on the flip side according an article entitled “The Rich Libido”  88% of women surveyed for the article said more money gave them better sex, which they defined as ‘higher quality’ sex.

But according an article by Web MD sex may be better than money for happiness. The article states, “Despite popular opinion, [researchers] find that having more money doesn’t mean you get more sex; there’s no difference between the frequency of sex and income level. But they do find sex seems to have a greater effect on happiness levels in highly educated—and [presumably] wealthier—people than on those with lower educational status.”

So. Can money buy you love? Or is sex the currency that can bring us greater happiness?

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 35: F*ck Valentine!

While Rosa and Ed somehow missed it, this week they catch up and say, “F*ck Valentine”! Not that they’re bitter or anything. Looks like there’s boy trouble in the ‘hood. Rosa shares a story of a good Valentine’s Day gone bad that recently happened to a close friend. This year, Ed decided to be the objective observer of V-Day rather than be a participant in the holiday. As such, he tells a couple of Valentine’s Day tales of two of his co-workers. What says I love you most? Apparently – according to one of Ed’s neighbors – it’s three foot tall Hello Kitty heart balloons.

What is the secret to maintaining desire in a long term relationship – and can we WANT what we already have? According to Esther Perel it’s a conscious choice to create and foster an erotic space. Ms. Perel has also has discovered the time when we feel the most desire for significant others may be different than we think. The loins don’t only grow fonder when they’re away. But rather, when they’re close but doing their own thing that they love. So love strengthens love and desire.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 34: The Big Ten Part 2

Perhaps ten is a magic number? This week the Wonks celebrate another big ten—the ten things you should never discuss after sex (according to D.H. Lawerence’s Lady Chatterly’s Lover). However, before they dive into the D.H., perhaps Rosa has discovered an answer to a shrinking segment of the world’s population?

Feel the magic.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 33: The Big Ten

The Wonks are stoked that it’s their 33rd episode ’cause double threes is a lucky number. This week, Rosa is having her lady’s time and shares with us that she has a rather unusual symptom when Aunt Flo’ comes to visit. Or is it so unusual?

Got boobs? Ed relays a recent close encounter of the boob-a-licious kind in Chinatown while he waited for a OKCupid date. Who knew that Hooters serves General Tso’s Chicken?

Why should we be having sex? The Wonks discuss the ten reasons why sex is so awesome (outside the obvious). From critical thinking to pain relief, it’s better than Vitamin C. Not to mention, Juan Ponce de León had it all wrong when he went traipsing the globe for the Fountain of Youth. Turns out we’ve all got access to it – just reach out and touch someone in their… ahem… fountain.

So c’mon, People. Fuck more, feel better and live longer!

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 32: Milky Milky!

We’re back! The Wonks have returned and they’re loud and proud. This week, Ed and Rosa are all about the boobies and the goodness they contain—literally. At the top of this episode Ed relays his recent experience with a killer case of vertigo. Rosa wonders aloud that if he’d have had access to it, that perhaps mother’s milk might have cured all that ailed Mr. Wood? His speculation: can there be any doubt?

As the Wonks roll out this week’s subject, Mr. Wood confesses that despite being gay, he too loves the tetitas. Like nipple play? While Ed’s not a big fan, Rosa feels her nipples are directly connected to her nether regions. Is bigger always better? That may not be true with regard to the boobies according to what Rosa has read. Turns out that “itty bitty titties” may have more of what it takes for arousal.

What is erotic lactation? Is it a form of paraphilia or is it merely a type of foreplay or an extension of the sexual intimacy? Ed and Rosa discuss the possible origins of lactophilia as well as the various ways in which couples might explore this particular kink and why.

As the Wonks wrap up their discussion, Rosa shares a list of various types of erotic lactation. Ed share’s his surprise at the discovery that nursing may have an unintended… consequence. And Rosa confesses that she’s learned to love her smaller sweater meat.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 31: Any Cock’ll Do

This week the Wonks are podcasting naked. That’s right, the Wonks are busting out all over the place – quite literally. While 2012 was dubbed the Year of the Vagina, the Wonks have decided that 2013 is to be our Year of the Cock. Rosa has a new neighbor who has something special. A penis! She’s thrilled to have some testosterone moving up into the joint. While chatting with a new friend on Skype, our girl thinks it might perhaps be time to export her best asset to the needy.

Ed follows up with regard to a recent dating experience that took a turn into the Twilight Zone. He discovers that he actually hadn’t potentially turned off his date with his OkCupid profile, but instead, scared him off the good old-fashioned way – on the first date.

In the second half of this episode, the Wonks work their way through the remaining sex-related resolutions to ring in 2013 with a bang.
