Sex in History

Nearer my God to thee In ancient Rome, every respectable man wanted a virgin for a wife. However, breaking the intact hymen was a job best left up to the gods. During the wedding ceremony, the Roman bride was required to sit on a stone phallus of the god, Priapus, puncturing the hymen and bringing blessings of a fruitful life.

The phallic symbol became so popular that architects began to incorporate it into building designs as the classic Roman column. So, think of Priapus the next time you drive by the courthouse.

Hot Stuff Sex Toy

Pocket Body Massager In desperation, they keep reinventing the wheel. This week's sex toy is the POCKET BODY MASSAGER, and is simply an adaptation of the good old Pocket rocket. Now, the pocket rocket was a good inexpensive beginner toy, as is this one. It's a bit more upscale with three vibrating balls in the tip. Those are great for clitoral, vaginal opening and external anal stimulation. Do not use this for penetration. The three interchangeable heads are useful only if you don't want as strong vibrations.

Hey, they're not going to be winning a Nobel prize for this one, but try it if you haven't experimented with the Pocket Rocket before. On our HOT STUFF HIBACHI OF LOVE, the Sugar and Spice Pocket Body Massager rates 2 briquets.

Sue's Mini Review

Parents who want their kids to have comprehensive sex education should pick up "THE S BOOK: An Alphabet of Smarter Love" by Jane Pavanel, published by Lobster Press. Encyclopedic entries and Q&A sections break down such issues as abortion, AIDS and peer pressure in language teens can understand. It is one of the best books around for young adults.
