Durex Performa: Numbs the Penis, Numbs Our Sense of Humor

Nov 01, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

We were never too keen on the Durex Performa. Somehow, a condom that encourages premature ejaculators to “last longer” by numbing their penis with benzocaine just never struck us as a good idea — if we can’t feel anything, does it really matter how long our dick stays hard?


But somehow, their latest ad campaign has us hating them even more. Handing out pillowcases printed with images of unattractive people to help men keep from coming — yeah, we get the joke. We just don’t think it’s very funny. Sexist, sure. Gross, yeah. Funny? Try again, Durex.

It’s Halloween — Don’t Forget To Be Sexy!

Oct 31, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

It’s Halloween, and we all know what that means: time for kids to get candy, girls to dress like sluts, and — well, really, that’s about it. Seriously: this video is a little too “funny because it’s true” for our tastes.


We’re not really sure why cold weather + the chance to dress up means wearing the fewest clothes possible; but then again, we were never the type to require a reason to wear a short skirt. “Because we want to” always seemed to suffice quite nicely, thanks.

Feeling Not So Fresh?

Oct 19, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

Ever have that not-so-fresh feeling? We never have, but apparently the feeling was rampant among women in the eighties. The epidemic got so bad that many were forced to talk to their moms about it — and get bad advice from said moms!

Ah, douche ads. We haven’t seen these in ages, but thankfully someone posted a bunch in the Vintage Ads Livejournal community. Enjoy! And try not to throw up at the thought of putting vinegar in a vag. Try.

The Rabbit That Just Keeps Going

Oct 18, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

So somehow, after all these years, The Rabbit still manages to rank as best vibe ever in quite a few books. And yes, we realize that it’s a whole new rabbit, with no latex and less chemicals — but still, is this really the best we can do when it comes to sex toys?

To be honest, we’ve never really been into The Rabbit. With so much going on, and all those bells and whistles, it can actually work against an orgasm. Sure, simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation seems like the best thing ever, but so does 2-in-1 shampoo plus conditioner.

The Sans Pubic Styles of Suicide Girls

Sep 17, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

A chance encounter with a copy of the SuicideGirls Magazine led to an interesting discovery: in all of the magazine’s 72 pages, we were only able to locate two or three models with even the merest scrap of pubic hair (and we do mean merest scrap, as even the girls who hadn’t chosen to go completely bare were rocking the tiniest of racing stripes).


Somehow, it seemed odd for a site which boasts of being “at the forefront of a generation of young women and men whose ideals about sexuality do not conform with what mainstream media is reporting” to display such a high level of conformity in its models’ pubic stylings.

Science Tries To Reinforce Stereotypes

Sep 13, 2007 by Lux Alptraum

So maybe it’s on account of our notoriously bad gaydar (we don’t think in terms of gay or straight — we just assume everyone wants to get in our pants), but here at Boinkology, we’ve never been too keen on the idea that, well, the gays “naturally” act/look/walk a certain way that’s totally, completely different from the straights.


And after reading this article, out of Science Daily (and via Jezebel), which claims that gays and lesbians not only walk funny, but look funny too (uh, we mean “have gender-incongruent body types”) — well, frankly, we’re still not convinced.
