When I first ventured into the land of lady-on-lady loving I was enamored with the idea of a strapless strap-on. No obnoxious straps. No lost parts. Just yummy direct skin-on-skin contact, mutual penetration and toe curling clitoral friction! What else could a young lesbo dream of?
If you have never seen one of these bad boys, head to a sex shop and give them a look. There are two models that you are likely to find; the Feeldoe and a model by Fun Factory. By inserting and clenching the “the short, curved bulb…into the vagina” Fun Factory says that you will have an “unbeatable sexual experience” completely free of messy straps. If you have ever played with a normal strap-on, you know how difficult it can be; complicated twisted straps make it difficult to get on, clasps suddenly give way moments before orgasm and if your angles aren’t just right that dildo flops around all over the place.
For years, I have dreamt of endless nights of fucking with one of these god-sends. Finally, several penetration-weary partners later, I got my chance! After going heavy on the foreplay and free flowing with lube it was time for the main event.
How dare they call this monstrosity a ‘bulb’! A bulb sounds like the beginnings of a delicate blossom; something tiny and shaped like a sperm. But ohhh no, that is not what it was. Attempting to insert this enormous strangely shaped beach ball into my lady flower felt like I was playing an aggressive game of Tetris with machetes.
No pain, no gain- on we go! After thanking the all mighty Sapphic god that my babymaker didn’t rip while getting this thing in, and grateful that my cries of pain hadn’t killed the mood too much, the tapered edge initially kept it comfortably in place while beginning to get our groove on. I must admit that there is nothing more satisfying that playing with this toy. If you are on the receiving end, feeling the tender skin of your lover so close to you and hearing their sighs of her pleasure is incredible. As a giver it is AMAZING! ...for about 30 seconds. With every thrust you get a triple shot of pleasure; the moans of your lover, the contact with your clit and perfect aim right to your g-spot. With that much going on, the moisture level amplifies incredibly… and thus comes the searing pain. Regardless of how hard you try to clench your PVCs, you are going to get dangerously wet and this thing is going to slip out. It hurts going in and boy does it hurts falling out. Worse, noticing that you are slowly losing grasp of this toy as your lover’s cries become sharper and shorter is a tragedy all on its own.
I’ve taken a general poll and it seems that most women I know either gave up on this toy, use it with a harness, or sport a snug fitting pair of underwear to support it. Tragically, I must dispel the myth of the strapless strap-on. Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend you give this toy a try: just with a harness.
There are so many reasons why a remake won't work. It could potentially destroy a legacy built in its own time, and not kindly. There’s a reason why a movie came out when it did and became the cult hit that it is today. Simply put, an original cult classic manages to capture the spirit of the generation in a perfect way creating the delicate balance between the plot and the ambiance. Remaking it and adapting the plot to a new generation is not an easy task, and barely ever succeeds in...

As if wearing ultra skinny pants, drinking from Mason jars, and opting out of showering, hipsters found yet another way to stand out, and this time it's something their female counterparts will not be able to partake in: beard dyeing.

Pedram Karimi's latest editorial takes us into a minimalistic world of shadows and alter egos. The cleverly titled shoot puts forth his androgynous creations, showcasing the absence of colours through dark greys and black layered over the occasional beige or white garments. Without compromising the sex appeal of these long layered threads, he is able to show us that Montreal-born fashion will always remain interchangeable between gender roles and timeless when it comes to seasonal approach....

Last year I stumbled upon an amazing band during my coverage of Montreal’s Psych Fest. A band with the energy of 10 creative minds (however they are only two) blending their musical psyche into one mystical being. Pachyderm is one of those eclectic, magical and other worldly creations of sound you almost can’t believe you’re listening to. For someone who literally has “feel the music” tattooed on herself, it’s needless to say that this band got under my skin and gave me faith that real,...
