In Russia, blow-up doll rides you! Or something like that…
On the 30th of August, swimmers, athletes and thrill seekers came together in the Vuoksa River, 82 kilometres northwest of St. Petersburg, for the sixth annual Bubble Baba Challenge - a river rapids rafting contest on blow-up sex dolls!
As one of the participants described it:
"This is one of my favourite events of the summer. I've been rafting most of my life, but the people and the atmosphere make this competition special. It's more of a crazy celebration and party than a sporting event!"
The 234 men and 24 women (real women, as opposed to inflatable ones!) who participated this year hopped on their blow-up friends and navigated down the rapids, hoping to beat the time-records for the previous years.
The awesome show Californication, which has added some serious sex appeal back to television, has announced a second series which is due to air at the end of September!

"Going down on your girlfriend or wife should be enjoyable but there can be some bad parts to this too. I've always enjoyed doing it but then my wife refuses to go anywhere near my mouth afterwards.
We recently got married and for the day had her whole pussy waxed to a hollywood style. She said it was pretty painful but as an upside, when I went down on her my mouth stayed pretty clean. The taste was a lot weaker and she would even kiss me afterwards.
So, if you're not keen on the taste down there or if she doesn't like to taste it afterwards get her to shave or wax her pussy clean and you should have no more problems. I'm told it's quite painful so make sure it's worth it!"

Book of the Month, Seriously Sexy 1, features one particular story that happened to catch our eye here at the Lovehoney Erotic Book Club.
"Impressionism" by Jeremy Edwards is a fascinating piece of erotica based in a Manhattan art gallery. The intense lust in the story is beautifully and deeply described without hindering the story's fast pace. Everyone can see a bit of themselves in the characters - whether it's Valerie's subtle exhibitionism or Max's charming wit - making this a story with an almost magnetic appeal.
Book of the Month, Seriously Sexy 1, is full of amazingly hot stories on such diverse themes as lesbian seduction, open relationships, illicit love affairs, domination and exhibitionism.
Whatever you're interested in, there's sure to be something within the covers of this incredible book to tease and tempt you!
One of the hottest stories in Seriously Sexy 1 is Impressionism by Jeremy Edwards.
This erotic tale of seduction, voyeurism and exhibitionism is beautifully written and is laced with Jeremy's signature style which makes it so easy to lose yourself in the story entirely!
Jeremy is a pseudonymous sort of fellow whose efforts to spin libido into literature have been widely published online, on the newsstands and in print, including in Xcite's Tease Me and the soon-to-be released Ultimate Burlesque. Jeremy explains that his greatest goal in life is "to be sexy and witty at the same moment – ideally in lighting that flatters my profile!"

"When giving a blow job, encircle your tongue around and around the helmet of his penis, meaning that you lick with the front and back of your tongue.
Sends my husband wild."
