STACCATO — short and sharp, quick reads

Virgin gave a big boost towards bringing the topic of pleasure to the mainstream by featuring MysteryVibe in their #VOOM2016 Export awards this week.

Real people, real pleasures. We asked unsuspecting members of the public some rather personal questions. Watch the film.

How to look sharp for your virtual reality date.

A PIACERE — enjoy at your pleasure

Ever wondered how we make vibrators? This handy little guide gives you all the know-how on the parts you need to make something buzz.

“Everyone wants to find Narnia — this is sort of the closest you can get as an adult.” With immersive experiences on the rise (including in sex), The Guardian looks how it’s entering the world of dining.

We were particularly fascinated by this article in Medical Daily — examining the evolutionary roots and reasons why we participate in oral sex. Besides pleasure, of course.

In a fantastic move towards gender fluidity, popular reality game The Sims has removed gender restrictions from its character customisation. Tinder will also be introducing gender-inclusive settings.

ADAGIO — longer reads, dive a little deeper

The addictive orgasm apps changing sex education — from cartoon vulvas to hyperrealistic reproductions, vaginal stimulation simulation has arrived at the App Store.

Married Love, a book published by Marie Stopes in 1918 aimed at ending “sex-ignorance”, was revolutionary in its frank depiction of sexuality. Read more about how it revolutionised the concept of female pleasure here. Highly recommended.
