For Those With Vaginas (and the people who love them)

Taking care of your sexual health is not only sexy but it's a very, very good idea. This "PSA" deals with funding cuts in the US but it makes a point about women standing up for their bodies.

Ookie Cookie and Other Games

I like to think that there's very little about sex that I haven't heard of, seen or tried. This week I was proven mistaken. I came across a video called Chillin' On Glee. The song is by Mark Stalling who plays Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the TV show Glee. It's a cute song that says how happy he is to be involved in the show.

About the two minute mark or so, he sings, "oh Jenna, Harry, Heather, Dijon. Hey Cory, why won't you play ookie cookie with me?"

My first reaction was what the heck is "Ookie Cookie"? I had to go look it up. I was very surprised what I learned and I can't help wondering if Mr Salling meant to put that in his song. Or maybe it means something different to him.

According to Wikipedia (and other sites), Ookie Cookie is a masturbation game played by males. A cookie is placed on a table and the men gather around it. They all jack off and then ejaculate onto the cookie. The last one to cum has to eat the cookie.

I've known a lot of men, both gay and straight, and none of them ever mentioned anything remotely like this game. I'm wondering if this was the definition Salling was working from. Two of the people on his list are female - assuming the two lines go together - and therefore not able to play. If he is only asking Cory that's a whole other kettle of fish. The game could be played with only two men. To make things more confusing, the video shows Salling eating a cookie that is most definitely not "ookie".

So what does this have to do with eco-sex?

It got me thinking about sex games and how to stay green while having fun. A game where you eat the game pieces is green so I guess Ookie Cookie fits. If you bake the cookie yourself and use local, organic local ingredients then it's the perfect green sex game.

There are all sorts of Adult Games available these days. Everything from Love Dice to Stripopoly (seriously!) Whatever your comfort level there's a sexy game out there waiting. Board and card games that are used over and over are totally green.

If you want to up your green-fu then try playing games during the day when you don't need lights. Afternoon Delight isn't just for dessert any more. If your back yard is private you could play outside (didn't your mother always want you to do that?) but if you're going to play on the grass you might want to make sure you've been using organic fertilizers.

Almost any game can be sexified. Naked Twister? Strip Chess? Just use your imagination. I once played Strip Backgammon. Which reminds me, I still owe John 15 pieces of clothing...

I hope this little post has encouraged you to get your game on. If you find any interesting games come back and tell me about it.

For those of you who are curious, here is the video for Chillin' On Glee. Never let anyone tell you that Glee is not educational.

Update: To make things more confusing I found this picture Mark Salling posted. He refers to Amber Riley (Mercedes) as his ookie.

Fight For Your Right To Get Off

I got an email from the Woodhull Freedom Foundation about something that is going on tomorrow. A group called Morality In Media is asking its members to call their representatives to support a new anti-porn initiative. The Woodhull Foundations suggest people who believe in sexual freedom should highjack the phone in:
"Wouldn't it be cool if people reading this used the phone numbers provided at the time Morality In Media has set for this "call-in"-Thursday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time-to call their own representatives and tell them that they're just regular citizens, not addicts or rapists or child molesters, and that they want their porn to remain free of government censorship?"
I won't get into a discussion what is porn and what is not. I won't tell you what porn is good and what is not. Or how much porn is too much. Those are all personal judgments that you have to make on your own. All I ask is that while you are deciding what's right for you, don't let anyone else take the right to choose away from you.

Do You Know What You're Sleeping On?

I'm thinking of purchasing a new bed. It's a big deal. I need my rest. If I don't sleep properly I am unfit for human consumption the next day. If it's true that spend a third of our lives sleeping, where we sleep should be as comfortable as possible. That third of you life is without adding in anything you do in bed when you're not sleeping.

In the US mattresses have to be sprayed with chemicals so that they are flame resistant (FR). No one knows how long term exposure to these chemicals will effect a person's health. When you sleep you have only a few thin layers of  material between your skin and the chemicals. If you sleep in the nude you have even less protection.

Someone recently posted a very interesting news story about toxic mattresses:

I realize that most of the evidence in this issue is anecdotal. But I also I know that I get a migraine after 15 minutes in a mattress store. And that's in Canada where the FR chemicals are not added. Even without them, there are enough chemicals used in the process of making mattresses.

I believe that it is better to be safe than sorry. Organic beds and bedding sound like the better option. Safe is sexy.

Here is a basic list of chemicals you should be aware of. You can find a detailed list of chemicals in foam mattresses here. To read some stories about people who became sick after purchasing a new mattress go to Chem-Tox.
