Pole Dancing & Mistletoe

Once your turkey tryptophan hangover has subsided, and the dessert-sugar-crash-burn cycle has passed, we think it's time to start burning off the extra calories to make way for the next four weeks of holiday feeding frenzy.

Come on now - get off the couch and have a little fun with your workout regimen. Frankly, we don't want to go to the gym either; and yes, we're aware that if it's too cold for man's best friend to go outside when it's necessary, then we're not going to advocate long wintery walks across the frozen tundra of your neighborhood.

But we will heartily embrace pole dancing for a little heart racing exercise. Mmm hmmm. We said pole dancing. Right in the privacy of your own boudoir, den, or living room. Hey! Why not take the Peekaboo Pole (portable) and put it right under the mistletoe? Okay, that might be stretching it but you get the picture.

Who says exercise is dull and boring? Not us! Dim the lights, cue the music, and we guarantee yours won't be the only elevated heart rate in the room!

You can find this in BE Daring.

Peace, Love, and Global Orgasm Day

SAN FRANCISCO - Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter. But they don't want you marching in the streets. They'd much rather you just stay home. The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.

"The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it," Reffell said Sunday. "Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change."

The couple are no strangers to sex and social activism. Sheehan, no relation to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word "Peace. The stunt spawned a mini-movement called Baring Witness that led to similar unclothed demonstrations worldwide.

The couple have studied evolutionary psychology and believe that war is mainly an outgrowth of men trying to impress potential mates, a case of "my missile is bigger than your missile," as Reffell put it. By promoting what they hope to be a synchronized global orgasm, they hope to get people to channel their sexual energy into something more positive. The couple said interest appears strong, with 26,000 hits a day to their Web site,

"The dream is to have everyone in the world (take part)," Reffell said. "And if that means laying down your gun for a few minutes, then hey, all the better."

Planes, Trains, &'s Home for the Holidays

Over the river and through the your inlaws house you go!
Or your childhood bedroom.
Or a hotel up the road because you prefer a real bed to a sofa.
Wherever your holiday travels take you, we certainly hope you won't be leaving your normally sexy self at home. Think of all the fun you'll have trying to keep things quiet after everyone has retired to their quarters for the evening. ;) And let's not overlook the rejuvenating benefits of sex - coupled or solo - under stressful conditions like the holiday hustle & bustle.

So why not take a travel friend toy with you? No need to travel with the heavy artillery when a little nugget of fun will suffice! We have some suggestions that will go unnoticed in airline inspections - altho' when possible we recommend you stow your goodies in your checked baggage and remove the batteries! And if your nosey relatives (as much as you love them) stumble onto these trinkets, they won't be any more the wiser either!

BE Incognito for some travel-friendly toys:
Fukuoku 9000
Lipstick Vibe
Carry-on if you want to keep your secret in its own hush-hush accommodations
Last but not least...throw some
Afterglow dual-purpose wipes in your carry-on bag to refresh after a long flight or car ride, of course clean your toy without having to carry liquid cleanser with you - or explain what it is that you're cleaning! It may look like winter outside but you and your toy will be springtime fresh!

Fashion is fickle. One season it's dark rinse flare leg jeans, the next it's black denim pencil legs. One season it's perfectly flat-ironed stick straight hair, the next it's relaxed curls with a just rolled out of bed nonchalance. And the same goes for the hair down is fickle!

Some of us trim, some of us wax to a high gloss sheen, and some laser all but the smallest landing strip. And now you can easily add two more options to your pubic primping menu, thanks to Just Kittyng and betty-color for the hair down there.

With Just Kittyng shaping stencils you can shape your "carpeting" into an arrow (even tho' we know how men hate to ask for directions!) or a whimsical heart (gives new meaning to heart shaped box, no?) With betty-color for the hair down there, you can go from blonde to blonder, brunette to raven black, or a hot pink that will surely get a party started.

And how about this for a power packed primping protocol - shape & color combo for the carpeting...just like a cut & color for the drapes. If ya know what I mean. Pink heart anyone? Blonde arrow to light the way? Hmmmm you may want to reconsider that wax appointment!
Essentially Yours,

Sleeves of Blue

The Beaded Strokemaster has been such a success that we're taking our cue from you...and just added two - yes, two! - new masturbation sleeves.

Both are from the fine folks at Vibratex who've brought countless women hours of pleasure with the Rabbit Habit and Rabbit Pearl. Obviously they know a thing or two about quality toys!

The Sidekick #1 and Sideckick #2 are kickin' with possibilities. #1 is closedd at the end, which some men find provides more suction. #2 is open-ended like the Beaded Stroker. Both have ticklies on the inside for added stimulation, and both are made from the material darling of sex toys, elastomer. And as far as the feel in your hand, well both Sidekicks are less bulky than the Beaded Stroker, if that's a consideration for you.

Is one better than the other? It's really just a matter of preference. We'll be posting a review oh-so-soon of both. So check back, lovelies, and see what others have to say on the subject of sleeving.
