House For Sale With Dungeon Makes The News

So a house in Philadelphia went up for sale yesterday that included a private basement BDSM dungeon, complete with kink furniture and equipment, and has become known as “50 Shades of Maple Glen“.

Philadelphia House with private dungeon up for sale

The US$750,000 house was posted on sites such as Zillow & Redfin, popular online realtor listing services, and quickly became viral (because apparently these things totally fascinate the Vanillas), however the controversy had the dungeon photos removed from many online listings.

However, the realtor still has the entire set of photos on their own realtor listing:

Kinky Sex Is The New Norm in Quebec?

Today the local Montreal Gazette posted an article discussing the growing kinkiness of Quebecers.

Quebec_kinky

While our province has always been known for its linguistic tensions, the study by researchers Christian Joyal and Julie Carpentier shows that we may soon become known for something much more erotic: our rather risqué sexual proclivities.

Handcuffs, blindfolds, spanking — Joyal said there is significant interest among Quebecers in engaging in those types of sexual activities. People aren’t just fantasizing about it, he added; they wish to do it.

Nearly half of the 1,040 Quebecers surveyed (45.6 per cent) have an interest in at least one type of sexual behaviour considered anomalous, like voyeurism, fetishism and masochism. One third of them had experienced the behaviour at least once.

Slate features a sex history calculator. Input your age, gender (male or female) and number of sex partners since 18 and compare results with other participants.

Can you remember everyone?

Do you even WANT to remember everyone? 😉

Here’s the online calculator so that you can try it yourself:

PS: Apparently I’ve done the deed more than 86% of my female peers. However, I should state that I’ve never been one to choose sexual partners lightly, and I don’t regret even a single one. I guess my age group tended to not be too sexually adventurous or something…

Retired Dominatrix Considering Outing Canadian Politicians

dominatrix_terri

Former dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford has sent a letter to sex workers across Canada asking for feedback on whether she should reveal the names of politicians she claims have employed sex workers.

Bedford, who led the legal battle that overturned Canada’s prostitution laws, threatened to name naughty politicians at a Senate hearing last month into C-36, the law the Conservative government is bringing in to make it illegal to buy sex.

Releasing a list would “show the hypocrisy of those who want to impose their will on others while themselves engaging in the very behaviour they want to others to stop.” She also suggests that her plan would keep the issue in the public eye. “Nothing attracts media attention as much as politics combined with scandals of this kind.

Retired dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford was escorted by security out of a Senate committee meeting after refusing to heed the chair’s warning that her allotted speaking time had run out — but not before threatening to make politicians “forget about Mike Duffy.

The woman who won a Supreme Court challenge to Canada’s prostitution laws told committee members that the government’s proposal to criminalize buyers of sex would “make Canada the laughingstock of the world.

Penis amputation after intentional Viagra overdose

A man from southern Colombia had to have his penis amputated after he overdosed on Viagra to impress his girlfriend.

According to the news website “Columbia Reports”, the 66-year-old man from Gigante, Colombia, whose name has not been released, confessed to the local newspaper that he intentionally overdosed on the erectile dysfunction medicine.

However, as a result of his overly enthusiastic penis-enhancing-drug use, the anonymous man — who claims to be a former member of the Gigante municipal council — found that his penis had gone into an apparently constant state of erection. Initially, the self-proclaimed politician didn’t mind his altered state, but found out his member began to hurt a few days into the erection.

When he finally sought medical help, doctors in Gigante referred the man to a medical facility in Neiva, where medical staff noted that the man’s penis was inflamed and fractured. They informed the patient his only option was amputation so the inflammation and gangrene would stop spreading to other parts of his body.

A doctor told local newspaper La Nacion: ‘The patient showed bruising on the testicles and penis, was treated and is recovering well.

As a result of the incident, Neiva hospital issued a warning for men to not use penis enhancing drugs or erectile dysfunction medication without prescription from their doctors.

Switzerland launches “Sex Drive-Ins”

Sex box drive-ins open in Zurich, but will anyone come?

swiss_sex_drivein
In an attempt to reduce open street prostitution and to improve security for sex workers, Switzerland’s largest city, Zurich, has launched “sex drive-ins”.

Prostitution has escalated in the city,” said Michael Herzig, from the Zurich social services department. “It was done out in the open on the street and men harassed passers-by. It was noisy and dirty because men took the prostitutes to a side street and left used condoms on the streets. The drive-ins are more discreet and safer.

The nine garage-style structures, located in Sihlquai, a former industrial zone in the city, are equipped with alarm buttons and guarded by security personnel to ensure the safety of the prostitutes. Customers are not allowed to leave the area with the sex workers.

There are also showers, toilets, a kitchen and washing machines for the sex workers to use, as well as an advice center where they can seek help from social workers. A gynecologist comes in once a week to offer health checkups for the women.

The city’s social services department is running the whole operation and also offers crash courses in German and self-defense courses for the women on site. “All of this will enhance the sex workers’ living and working conditions,” Herzig said
