For those regretful hookups, exes who still turn you on, and makeup sex acts… this is your playlist. This hump day, give yourself the chance to relieve your sexual frustration with your vibrator (or other consenting object) to this week’s bitter boner playlist.

[FUN FACT:] It is totally possible to have a lady- or female-bodied-boner, whether emotionally or biologically. Feeling a hard-on, whether or not you have the typical equipment, is equally legitimate. Also, did you know that the clitoris and the head of the penis are sexual homologues? (hello, Women’s Sexuality…) And, the clitoris engorges when stimulated…which is basically a boner.

Voilà! So if you’re feeling some bitter sexual frustration, why not rub one out on this sunshiney hump day listening to this week’s playlist?:
♫ tune in & turn on…


Well, we gave in: PSE is now on tumblr. It’s up and running, and we’re hoping to make it into a place for sharing sex-positive/body-positive/sex ed & sex health info and photos. (We leave the kittens and lesbians to the other tumblrs you’re following…mostly.) Check us out by clicking the photo below & don’t forget to follow us!

Sexcess! Thanks, Smithies & non-Smithie-attendees, for helping make SEXtravaganza such a huge event this year. We appreciated stuffing the RCSG for our workshops and entertaining a 200-person crowd at the Careers in Sex panel (gallery below). Missed out? Miss it? Check out the gallery below for some fond panel memories.

Keep in touch for more information on next year’s SEXtravaganza.

SEXtravaganza is on! Yesterday we saw a hilarious show by UMASS’s Not Ready for Bedtime Players. Tonight PSE and Oh My! Sensuality shop are presenting an Oral Sex Workshop in the Resource Center for Sexuality & Gender at 4pm (poster shown below). Later tonight, Emily Nagoski will be presenting a lecture called Fat From Fiction in the Neilson Browsing Room at 7pm. See you there!

— be sure brush up on your oral skills tonight!

Thanks Smith’d! Also, remember to get educated about the wonderful speakers who are coming to our event, including Jiz Lee, genderqueer person of color porn star; Nenna Joiner, producer, director, and filmmaker of queer people of color porn and also head honcho of her own sexuality shop, Feelmore510; Sinclair Sexsmith, producer of numerous sex-positive websites and blogs; Emily Nagoski, our one and only Smith-hired sex nerd; Not Ready for Bedtime Players, a comedy theatre troupe from UMASS-Amherst that specializes in sexuality education; and Oh My!, our awesome mother-and-daughter-owned sex-positive sex store in our lovely feminist town. In other words, if you didn’t have an excuse to watch porn, read erotica, or catch up on the sex ed you slept through in high school, now’s your chance to hit up Oh My! or the nearest computer and get on it!


For those of you who don’t know, next week is Sextravaganza, a wonderful week of events put on by Smith’s PSE. Here are some ways to get yourself ready and to celebrate!

Get new undies. I did. Two pairs. One was from my mother. Her Valentine’s Day package included a cheese grater wrapped in 4 socks, and a pair of black lacy panties. No note. I purchased the other pair for myself. They are large and grey.

Napsturbate. Tell your friends you’re going to catch some Zs. Catch something else instead.

For this week’s soundtrack for your sex acts we’re gonna switch it up a bit and focus on just one artist.  Oliver Tank is this Australian folky-electronic artist whose tunes set a nice backdrop for nostalgic/poetic/sunset on city rooftops sex or sexual fantasies.  In this weirdo winter, it’s the perfect playlist to set an atmosphere to just let go.  So hit play on his soundcloud page, sit back & see what happens…
