AP - Japanese carmaker Nissan said Friday it has pulled a raunchy commercial starring "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall from New Zealand television after complaints over its content.
Cattrall, who plays sex-obsessed, promiscuous Samantha Jones in the hugely successful U.S. series, appears in the ad purring with excitement about Nissan's new sedan.
"Why didn't you tell me it was so big, I just wasn't prepared for it?" she gushes. "The all-new Nissan Tiida makes you feel really, really, really good inside."
She tells a salesman: "Ah! That was amazing. Absolutely fabulous! I mean the great body and the way you moved it." [read full article]
The divine Ms Cattrall seems to have become the female equivalent to Finbarr Saunders… still, if they get Sex And The City involved in promoting their new cars, what did they expect? Thousands of women enjoy Sex And The City sex toys as well as the show's explicit discussions of female pleasure. Clearly Ms Cattrall has a bit more va-va-voom than they bargained for.
Daily Record: Sexual attitudes have changed dramatically since the Victorian era.
When couples get married today they may have had up to 10 sexual partners. Back then the majority of women were probably virgins. Even when they did get married a lot of women still didn't have a clue what to do on the first night of their honeymoon. Britain's oldest virgin Clare Smith was 95 when she recalled her wedding night.
She said: "We were so innocent my husband and I didn't even know what having sex was. We both wore thick pyjamas and he played the mouth organ in bed all the time. I married twice and I never had sex. It didn't bother me, what you don't know, you don't miss."
Holey moley. Make sure you're not missing out by getting the complete information about better sex..or any sex, for that matter.
An oldie but a goldie this one - The Dildo Song is an awesome parody of the 1950s Slinky commercials that extolls the virtue of dildos. Made by a bunch of Canadian girls, it is a perfect send-up of the 50s style of advertising - it's in black and white, natch - and their reworked lyrics to the song are hilarious. It's been getting lots of new love thanks to being on Google Video where you can watch it online, or you can download it from the original creators site. Either way, it'll brighten up your day immeasurably - just like a real dildo!
The straight-laced government of communist-run Vietnam, where pornographic Web sites are banned, plans to offer downloadable movies on an Internet site to educate married couples about healthy sex, a newspaper said on Thursday.
The official English-language Vietnam News quoted Khuat Thu Hong, Deputy Director of the Institute for Social Development, as saying "an orthodox sex Web site" would help couples learn more about "healthy sexual intercourse."
Hong cited cases of married couples who had not had sex for a year, a rising divorce rate and rampant prostitution as reasons to publicize more information about sex. [Reuters]
Pity the British government doesn't follow suit - although there's no lack of information you can get hold of about better sex if you want. Because the more you know, the better the sex with be. And if your love life's in the doldrums - a year without sex? Eek! - watching one of our ace Better Sex DVDs and reading one of our brilliant better sex books can be a revelation to put the spark back into your relationship.
"Fancy sex on a fishing boat? Then visit the Lake Balaton resort, say Hungary's authorities in a recently launched campaign aimed at attracting young people to its main lake resort.
The tourism authority is sending around an email with an internet link http://abalatoninyar.fw.hu/, leading viewers to a short cartoon film which features a young blonde woman having sex with a married man on a fishing boat on the lake.
The film, accompanied by a popular song from the 1980s, shows the tourist hiding his wedding ring while in bed with the woman. It also shows her wowing him after taking off her bra." [Reuters]
Er… Blimey. I bet they'll be getting some classy visitors…
Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"We first realised we were into ball gags when I was spanking Louise in the middle of a public wood. Obviously there's a risk of being found out (part of the appeal) but to quieten her down (and to add to the risk), I bought her this gag. We went for the black version (somehow seemed less obvious than its colourful sisters) and it hasn't let us down…"

Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"I am very sceptical about these products but saw the free sample offer and went what the hell, I'll try it! I tried this in different 2 situations, after reading the rather scarey blurb about how it might feel like burning and stuff, I decided to give it a shot anyway. The first time started as waving the little packet at my partner. Now he has a pretty low libido but when a new sex toy or product enters the house then he perks up! And so we put it to the test the day it arrived in the post…"

Orgasm Army is a new (as far as I can tell) Web site devoted to reviews of all things sexual. There are lots of reviews of sex toys and bondage gear on there, and also some message boards with deliciously explict questions and, dare I say it, problems. One for the erotic bookmarks folder…

You've slept late and have to be in work in 5 minutes! So what's a girl to do? Forsake a cleansing hot shower to have fast, dirty sex?
