tsk01.jpgThe Smitten Kitten opened in Minneapolis, MN in 2003. From the very beginning they have been a sex toy store committed to providing sex education along with their products.The store's mission to provide safe sex toys inspired their non-profit organization, CATT (Coalition Against Toxic Toys). CATT promotes awareness of the potential health risks of some sex toy materials. After many years of making Minneapolis a smarter and sexier city, the Smitten Kitten is expanding and opening a store in Denver, CO. Alison Nowak, General Manager of the Smitten Kitten, and I sat down and had a chat about the new Denver store, its' grand opening, and the future of sex toy stores in general.

card_clean.jpgSex educator, author, blogger, podcaster, and game designer, Kidder Kaper, releases his 12th sex game and this time he's pushed the production quality to the max with his first fully illustrated, mass-produced game.

The game-play is simple. Couples select cards from the deck that contain illustrated sex acts of all kinds and then they place the events in the order that they'd like to play them. The illustrations are cartoony, non-threatening and fun. The game's goal is also simple. It is designed to help inspire couples to mix it up and add variation and excitement to their love making.

With no insertion, no equipment, and little need for things like safe words or tarp-covered floors, many look at hand sex as a jumping off point, something that one does in high school in the front of a car older than yourself; something that one does until they start doing something better.

cosmo.jpgRecently I read an article that made me angry, "Five Traits in a Mate That are Not Deal Breakers". The premise of this article is that many women have standards for men that are ultimately not helpful in finding a marriage partner. This premise seems ok. Oh, look at that, the author wrote a whole book on the subject. Interesting, let's see what traits she thinks aren't deal breakers.
