Turn Your iPhone Into A Vibrator!

February 15, 2011 Apps, Culture No Comments

Sir Richard’s Condom Co. and Dog Tag teamed up recently to bring a little stress relief to the trials and tribulations of owning an iPhone. Introducing Significant Other.

Significant Other appNow that it is clear that even with Verizon the devices don’t work very well as far as, you know, doing the main thing mobile phones should do, Apple’s draconian, largely sex-negative App Store has decided to look the other way and allow this blatant attempt to convert the Apple iPhone into a vibrator, to slide. Uh huh. Anyway. The app has a clean interface, three speeds and a timer.

No word on how long it can go, but with an iPhone’s battery life, we’re guessing those epic marathons are not really an option. Also — how are you supposed to tune into iPink if the phone is otherwise engaged?

Ah, it’s a ploy to get you to buy an iPad.

It has all become very, very clear to us.

Where The Douches At?

February 7, 2011 Apps, Culture No Comments

Foursquare renegade

If you’re a woman about town, there is one app you can no longer do without. Wheretheladies.at somehow managed to slip through the cracks at the Junior Anti-Sex League Mart– err, Apple Store last week and is now a hazard for the women of San Francisco — and threatening to spill south — as if we needed help with the douchery here in Los Angeles.

The app is essentially a compass that points losers in the direction of women by using female Foursquare check-ins (or dictionary crawl and permutation logic when no gender is specified). Lame. … Continue Reading

FaceTime Brings Camgirls Right to Your Phone

November 19, 2010 Apps, Culture, web No Comments


The studio is buzzing with girls auditioning, girls taking photos for promos, and girls camming with customers. We’re at IP4Play headquarters, a new offering on the adult entertainment landscape to bring some edge to Apple’s products. Oh, yeah. And there’s very little Steve Jobs can do about it.

Think camgirls, only they’re right there, talking to you on your phone. Thanks to FaceTime and Skype, IP4Play has a platform to make it happen. You cruise their site and take a pick among adult models, porn stars, and a handful of fresh-faced new-comers. From there, you buy some time with your girl, between five and 30 minutes (which ranges between $20 and $90), and get going. … Continue Reading

How’s Your Sex Life? There’s An App for That (Kinda)

November 18, 2010 Apps, Culture No Comments

Time Flies app

We’re always looking for ways to give Apple the finger and allow their users to express their sexualities despite the company embargo on anything sex-related in their App Store. Time Flies, a new app for iPhone and iPad, is no different. … Continue Reading

Go Double Agent on Their Asses

Spy Games

You can wait in bed wondering what he’s doing on his phone that’s so important. Or why she’s up at five in the morning texting. Or you could pull a spy move and quit wondering.

There are a fair share spy apps out on the market, some more questionable than others. Some far more expensive than others. The newest high-performance, low-cost one, Secret SMS Replicator, is for Android phones. You don’t need to have an Android yourself, only the target does. (The app’s page can tell you whether your own device is compatible with the app, so check there first). … Continue Reading

An App That Lies for You

October 28, 2010 Apps, Culture No Comments

Fake Call LocationsIt’s hard to get a good alibi these days. Information is essential in Los Angeles, and you never know when someone’s gonna sell out your whereabouts for a photo op. Fear not, you no longer need to rely on other people.

Technology is here for you.

Told your wife you’re blowing off steam, cruising along the PCH when you’re really in a suite in Beverly Hills “getting a tour of Amsterdam”? You need iDeluxe’s Fake Call Locations iPhone app.

The app is simple: it plays ambient sounds in the background of your call, so even if you have a gorgeous blonde sucking your dick passionately between your legs or a hunk giving your ass an epic rimjob, you can still make a convincing case for the traffic, a crowd, or even the sounds of the great outdoors.

Assuming you can stifle the moans, that is. Don’t be stupid, now. The only fail possible is between the chair and the keyboard… or the touchscreen and the bed, if you will.

Did we mention you can record your own items to playback during calls? It’s technology at work for the Ferris Bueller in all of us. You know, the one all grown up now and with a Tiger Woods kind of hunger.

The Porn Library for iPad Has Arrived, Whether Steve Jobs Likes It or Not

October 27, 2010 Apps, Culture, News, Technology No Comments

Flesh Drive for iPad

You can try to take porn out of the technology, but you can’t take technological pioneers out of the porn industry. Somehow they will always find a way to get around you. The industry is used to barriers. They’ve been getting around them since the first dirty books were banned.

Though Apple’s Steve Jobs has been very vocal about the importance of Apple devices being free of pornography, going as far as to tell users to switch to Android if they have a problem with the liberty he has taken in making himself their parent — an ironic turn considering the Apple 1984 commercial of old. Junior Anti-Sex League, anyone? — there’s nothing he can do about this. … Continue Reading

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
