Sex in History

Various IUD's The concept of placing a foreign body in the uterus to prevent pregnancy goes back to ancient history. Arab traders on long desert treks didn't want their frisky camels getting pregnant, so they came up with the ingenious idea of inserting a couple of smooth pebbles into the animal's uterus. Nobody knew why it worked, but it did. And we still don't know for sure why it works.

Our modern version of a pebble is the Intrauterine Device, or IUD. This is the most widely used method of birth control in the world.

Dr. Ernst Grafenberg came up with the first modern one in 1929, a ring-shaped IUD made of silver. Since that time, there have been hundreds of different shapes introduced, made of everything from stainless steel to fishing line. If you want to know more, check with your doctor.

Hot Stuff Sex Toy

Fukuoku Glove Without a doubt, this has got to be the ugliest sex toy I have ever come across. If anybody came at me with this glove on, I'd head for the sofa… alone.

The little finger Fukuoku is one really great toy, so I guess the men who think up these ideas decided that four would be even greater. Gotta be a man thing.

A large black glove with four fingers each with a small vibrator in the tip. The control requires 3 triple A batteries in a portable case with a variable speed button. Hell, the only thing it varies is the length of time it takes for your hand to become totally numb.

Now, I ask you, is this something you would want touching your hot bod? I really think they should do some feasibility studies before they develop a dumb and dumber sex toy like the FUKUOKU glove. On the HOT STUFF HIBACHI OF LOVE, it rates one sputtering briquet.
