Salon – Next Tuesday, Women’s Libido Drug Flibanserin Aims to be Female Answer to Viagra

Friendly reminder, next Tuesday, June 16 the next Erotic Literary Salon.

There are many issues involved in taking any pill to enhance sexual functioning. With this new “pink Viagra” the playing field begins to level out. Hopefully people use these drugs after much thought regarding relationship and sexual expression. It is easy to rely on a teeny pill to create a bandage effect.

Oysters-Aphrodisiac, Sex Toy Machine-Convenient Aide

Merilyn Jackson, a frequent reader at the Salon recently had her poem “Oysters” published in Cleaver Magazine. I recall her wonderful reading of this work at the Salon, her last line left me wanting.

OYSTERS
by Merilyn Jackson

I am licking
the insides
of the
oyster shells

embedded in salt
on a plate
black as your
angry eyes

like your love,
cooling rapidly as lava.

Forgive me.

OysterIt reminds me
of
how much
I want
to lick
your hair.

America’s Very First Sex Toy Vending Machine Is Coming To Philadelphia

BY  • 05.27.15

Philadelphia-based entrepreneurs Vaughn Sandman and Dean Kitagawa have created what they’re calling North America’s first-of-its-kind sex toy vending machine, PinkBox, because we live in a magical age. Sandman and Kitagawa are holding a launch party at Philadelphia’s Underground Arts venue on Thursday night to celebrate this milestone, and let people try out the machine firsthand.

The creators say that “sex is nothing to be embarrassed about,” and being able to obtain dildos conveniently out of a vending machine does cut down on the awkwardness of the face-to-face interaction of going to an actual sex shop, or having to wait for a delivery when that itch just won’t scratch itself.

Philly Mag spoke with the PinkBox team about their new creation:

[Host of Sex with Timaree Podcast!] Dr. Timaree, who’s serving as PinkBox’s “resident sexpert” and curator of what’s inside, explains that the machine stocks “everything from condoms and cock rings to Lelo vibrators. There are glass dildos, and starter restraint kits.”

Dr. Timaree can’t yet confirm where the first machines will be placed, but Sandman and Kitagawa say they are “very adamant about making sure we get a PinkBox in the Gayborhood that caters more specifically to the boys.”

The creators also say that, due to the low overhead, they’re able to keep their prices competitive for those who appreciate value in their sex toys as much as convenience. It’s probably only a matter of time before these things can be found in every nightclub and strip joint across the country.
