THE SEX FILES: Have You Been Naughty…Or Nice?
Random holiday happenings, news and places to shop fill-out this time of year. Yes, here in New York City we have the ubiquitous Rockefeller Christmas Tree, the chestnuts roasting and shop windows resplendent with lights, but there is so much more to Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
Below are a few interesting sexy items for the roll-up to the holidays…
1.) It seems a store down south wants to help out in the “Toys for Tots” charity. Pleasures, an adult store in Alabama is collecting donations for the Marine kids charity and offering an adult toy with every kid’s toy customers drop-off. According to the store’s manager Terra Jeffrey: “Pleasures has been donating to charities for the 19 years that it’s been established, and we feel like our donations should not be any different that anybody else’s donations, because the kids don’t care where the toys came from, as long as they get toys.” What Jeffrey is defending is TforT reps making Pleasures remove the “Toys for Tots” logo from all the stores’ slogans and signs, because they wanted nothing to do with TforT being connected with an adult toy store.
Don’t worry though, Pleasures will continue to prominently display the logo on its website as the toy drive continues through Dec. 15.
By the way, Pleasures is the first drive-thru adult novelty store in the nation.
2.) Our friends over at Frisky have some cute toys to warm your holiday season, giving a wild new twist on where to place a mistletoe and what exactly we are stuffing our stockings with. I know the candy cane jocks and little naughty elf outfits seem to be in overabundant supply these days, but some of this stuff is kind of fun and really, if you can’t wiggle your branch this time of year, when else are you going to get the opportunity?
3.) It seems there is lots of sex being had at or after UK Christmas parties and The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) has launched a service this year where women can request the morning-after-pill over the phone to get it delivered free of charge to their home. Hoping to help prevent unwanted pregnancies over the Christmas and New Year period, the BPAS claim British ladies face barriers obtaining the pill-not being able to get appointments, health workers refusing to provide it, the £25 cost-and claim these hindrances increase at Christmas when chemists and surgeries (the UK equivalent of our pharmacies) may be closed.
4.) Right here in good old NYC there is a one-act theater festival presently running with some sexy titles that might indeed, as this theatre’s web site proclaims “warm the long December nights.” Cold Snaps 2011 by the WorkShop Playwrights runs until December 17th, presenting such naughty sounding morsels as “A Brief Romance,” “The Language Of Love,” and “Sexy Friday” plus five others. Find them here:
So, a little shopping, some news (here and abroad) and a place to come in out of the cold to see some new one-acts; man I am really in a gift giving mood, huh?
