Perhaps you should embroider a red A on your wardrobe, you abominable tramp.

Last night Stacy slept with a guy she met at a bar. It's the fifth guy she's had sex with in two weeks. All of them gorgeous, all of them one night stands. If you were at that bar last night you couldn't have missed her, she's really pretty. Stacy was sat alone at the end of the bar wearing a short skirt and a low cut top, stroking the stem of her cocktail glass whilst flirting with the barman. Stacy sleeps around, it's no secret. Everyone knows. Stacy's is a bit of a ____________. [Fill the blank]

What word came to mind at the end of reading that? Be honest. Let's try reading it again but this time it's slightly different.

Last night Jon slept with a woman he met at a bar. It's the fifth woman he's had sex with in eight days. All of them gorgeous, all of them one night stands. If you were at that bar last night you couldn't have missed him, he's really good looking. Jon was sat alone at the end of the bar wearing slim fitted jeans and a shirt that clung to his muscles, sipping a JD whilst flirting with the waitress. Jon sleeps around, it's no secret. Everyone knows. Jon's a bit of a ____________. [Fill the blank]

What word popped in your head this time? Was there a difference between your reaction to the first and the second story?

I watched Easy A last night — a film based on the themes in the book The Scarlet Letter  and it got me thinking. There is and i guess always has been a double standard when it comes to promiscuity. While the majority of today's society prides itself on open mindedness and an ever growing tolerance for what could previously have been considered inappropriate, still there exists a double standard when it comes down to the sexual exploits of males and females.

Men, and excuse me for generalising here, are often praised, glorified even, by other men if they sleep with lots of women. A man can be a complete whore, bed as many women as he likes, brag about it to his friends and will most likely receive pats on the back and gain more respect from other males for doing so. He's now 'The Man'. If a woman were to do the same, she too would gain a reputation but unlike her male counterpart would be less respected, being labelled a skank/slut/tramp/easy. Is that fair? I think not.

There have been some attempts to break down this unfair labelling; shows such as SATC did a fairly good job, but still, in the real word, people gossip, bitch and spread rumours.

Now this is where it gets interesting. I used to be of the opinion that it was mostly men who label women sluts for sleeping around and whilst a small minority might *insert crude rap lyrics here* after thinking about it, i don't think men are the culprits. It's other women. Unfortunately for society, a lot of women/girls judge each other, bitch about one another and some even take comfort in tearing others down. These self righteous women are the ones spreading the rumours and labelling fellow females as sluts. Whilst i myself wouldn't choose to sleep around, I'm not going to go around bitching about other women who do. It's their choice and quite frankly, none of my business. So to quote the wise words of Mean Girls:

"You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it OK for guys to call you sluts and whores."

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1: Review

Sunday, 20 November 2011 3 comments

It's been a long time since I've blogged about Twilight but this weekend saw the release of the fourth film in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.


Breaking Dawn is the final book in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga and sees the end to the unusual love triangle between wolf,  human and vampire.


The film opens with an angry, shirtless Jacob running away after receiving an invite to the wedding of Edward and Bella. Any film that opens with shirtless men is OK by me.

The wedding scene is right at the beginning of the movie, Bella and Edward get married and hot (and cold) foot it off to the Isle of Esme to get down with their bad married selves. Now that they are married Edward is no longer bound by his goal to protect Bella's virtue. Cue hot steamy vamp sex. I was most disappointed at the lack of pillow biting during the Breaking Dawn sex scene but they did manage to destroy the bed, so high five for that!

Pretty soon after they get it on, Bella finds out she's pregnant. I'm not sure how Edward is still fertile after 100+ years of being dead, but somehow he managed it. So Bella finds herself carrying a half human, half vampire, baby which is basically destroying her from the inside out.

If you've read Breaking Dawn then you know how gross the birth scene was in the book, so lets just say i wasn't looking forward to seeing Edward chew his way through Bella's abdomen to release the baby bloodsucker. However with some nifty camera work and a healthy splattering of fake blood the filmmakers made it palatable (forgive the pun,) for their younger audiences.

And baby Renesmee is born.

Now there's one thing about Breaking Dawn that disturbs me a little. Upon seeing baby Renesmee, Jacob, who only moments before was head over heels with Bella, imprints on the baby. Now if you don't know what imprinting is, it's basically wolf speak for i love you. So Jacob falls in love with baby Renesmee (kind of gross) and will now presumably wait for her to grow up so they can be together ewwww!

Breaking Dawn ends with a newborn vampire Bella opening her eyes to reveal her blood red irises. This is when most people started leaving the cinema. Don't. After a few credits another clip showing the Volturi is shown as a little hint of what's to come in Breaking Dawn Part 2. I've heard a few people say that they were disappointed in the ending but i think it was perfect. If they'd have ended it during the birth, it would have felt sloppy, but ending on a shot of Bella as a vampire sets up Part 2 of Breaking Dawn perfectly.

Breaking Dawn in my opinion, was closer to the book than the previous movies have been. The wedding scene is beautiful and I'm glad they finally stopped uglifying Bella and gave the girl some makeup. Edward looks smoking hot throughout, which is no surprise and the choice of music is good. All in all, being a fan of the series anyway, i loved it and I'm excited to see how they portray a stronger, fiercer and more confident Bella, as a vampire in Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Have you seen the movie yet? What do you think of Jacob imprinting on a baby?

Cosmo's Steamy Sex Games: Review

Sunday, 13 November 2011 1 comments

Cosmo's steamy sex games - Adult game

Since i did such a good job of reviewing their Melt chocolate paint, Eden Fantasy's, (a couples  toy store) sent me another product to try in return for my honest opinion. I am not being paid to write this. This product was a game from the Cosmo range, so i was particularly excited to try it.

What's in the box:

The box consists of 12 separate card games (118 cards in total). The box, though a little smaller than i imagined is well made and neat. The cards themselves are nicely designed and are printed on nice, glossy card.

The card games range from Sexy Scavenger Hunt to Dirty Truth or Dare, each game aiming to help you and your partner get the passion flowing. 

The Games:
Each game has a different aim. There are some role playing games and some trivia games, all designed to help you turn up the heat in the bedroom.

Finish The Fantasy Game: 
This one is for those couples who like using their imagination. Each card gives you the start of a steamy scenario and you have to finish off the fantasy.

An example from one of the cards:
"We're taking a hike through the woods when we come upon a totally secluded lake. The two of us have been walking for hours, and we're dirty and drenched with sweat. Nice! The sparkling water looks so cool and delicious, we're practically salivating. Then, as if on cue, we both tear off our clothes and dive in butt naked into the icy blue water..." I'm not entirely sure if you're supposed to turn the bedroom into an alpine paradise for this, or actually go hiking and pray you find a secluded lake, whatever floats your boat i guess. If you can play this game and still keep a straight face, you get my full admiration.

Call of the Wild:
The Call of the wild game is like a mini Karma Sutra. Each card showing you different positions. If the pictures aren't telling enough, they have been kind enough to add instructions beneath each one. Some of them will include furniture so pick your props wisely, unless you want an embarrassing trip to A&E with splinters in rather delicate places.

Sexy Tarot Cards:

The idea is that you lay out the 12 cards and have your partner pick one to reveal 'The Inner Him'. This game is just a bit of fun. It isn't the most educational section in the deck and seems a little immature for an adult game.

Those are just a few of the games included.

The Verdict:
These card games would be good for a new couple looking to get to know each other a little better and discover each others' likes and dislikes. However for couples who have been together a long time, the games might come across a little predictable. In my opinion they are more of a novelty than a serious way to spice things up. The games are fun, and with a bottle of wine could be make for a great couples night in, but for long term couples, i think a bit of imagination would suffice.
