Since we have relocated to the second floor of the PASSIONAL store,  we will be celebrating the 18 years of sexy history that we have been privileged to participate in.  Our educators and staff will seduce you into interactive demos and games, enter you in our raffle of sexy prizes and allow you to experience the store in a whole new way!

Positively Sexy Performance: Gaga for Lady Gaga!

Since last year’s Grammy awards, we have asked our customers to nominate music videos that send a “positively sexy message” celebrating pleasure and body/gender acceptance.  Our original concept was to name a “winner” and give and “award” at the end of 12 months of nominations. Alas,  we have fallen behind in posting all of the nominations, and it turns out that many “old school” videos were nominated with a backlog of at least ten nominations. For the new year, our goal is not to create an “award” or a “competition” but simply to celebrate the performers and performances that send positive sexual messages.

Of the nominations we received, wanted to acknowledge the many  and mentions  sex-positive influence of Lady Gaga, especially for “Born this Way”.

Since the award winning “Born this Way” video became an anthem for the LGBT community, we decided to feature the gender-challenging  video for “You and ,” along with the groundbreaking live performance and interviews that resulted from its production. We’d like to give “Born this Way” some breathing room and revisit the positivity in its lyrics and video in the future, when a reminder would be more welcome and less “overloading.” This seems fitting, especially in light of the fact that “Born this Way” resulted in the MTV Video Music Award and ensuing performance that brought the newer and very different, “You and I” into public spotlight.

Bringing a new level of awesomeness to award shows, Lady Gaga completely reinvented themselves from the her famously femmetastic stage-show grandeur that  and performed in full drag at the MTV Video Music Awards last August.

In addition to her performance, Gaga remained in character through the end “You and I” video she has been interviewed in character as “Joe Calderone,” creating buzz and raising a bit of controversy about gender roles and “proper etiquette.” But by and large, the performance and her alter-ego were widely received with love, especially from the lgbt advocates interviewed by MTV.

Positively Sexy Video Nomination: Not Myself Tonight

John Y. nominated this sexy anthem of experimentation- bisexuality, bondage and rubber hoods are just some of the exotic treats on the menu of Not Myself Tonight by Christina Aguilera that triggered his enjoyment.

With so much pleasurable adventure going on, it almost compels one to get out on the dancefloor an try a few new moves, in a few new roles! Christina Aguilera can belt it out better than most pop-divas with a variety of styles that has us expecting more nominations for this artist’s work!

Nominate a “Positively Sexy Video” we will share a video each month, and award the best next January! Nominate any video by a celebrity or independent artist that celebrates sexuality in a positive non-sexist, non-phobic way.
Just fill out the nomination form below:

Positively Sexy Video Nomination: The Dildo Song

For some more explicit video fun, we have this one nominated my MT from back in the day! This video was one of the first widely distributed videos on the world wide web and was extraordinarily popular with the old school staff of our alma mater, Fetishes Boutique (now known and loved by her Matron name, PASSIONAL).

Why not put an oldie but goodie in the running for an award this year?

Porn and Pubes- discussion on The View

Whoopi Golberg recently gave a thumbs up to porn, but thumbs her nose at the phenomenon of the pre-teen “pudenda.” on morning television’s The View.

After mention of a new online  service that tracks which porn sites a person may visit on a computer (marketed to women who want to snoop on their partner’s porn habits), Whoopi abandons the original conversation about the service to wax poetic about her love of porn! However, she qualifies that she thinks porn is better viewed on television and that her main turnoff is the newly widespread practice of shaving the “pudenda” to mimic the body of youth.

YouTube clip includes a commercial (but its well worth the wait, we promise):

We are big fans of Whoopi, and this makes us love her all-the-more!

Enquiring minds at Sexploratorium want to know what kind of pudenda you like to see, feel and have for  sexual allure, gratification, physics and aesthetics sakes! Please take our quickie “poll” and feel free to “comment” at the end of the page as well. We will run this poll for a week and publish the results!

Positively Sexy Video: Lick It

Just in time to whet your appetites for Thursday’s “Getting Down with Going Down on her” workshop with Chelsea Olivia, we are posting Karrie S’s nomination for “Positively Sexy Video”

We are not sure how we missed the debut of this song on the Showtime series The L Word, but we are thankful to have found the video for Lick It by God Des & She

God-Des & She are a hip hop/pop/ soul duet from New York (via Madison Wisconsin) whose talented drag kings models combine with witty lyric make this humorous look at sex education (not to mention the implied art of cunning-lingual performance) positively wrong in all of the right ways! A dancing vagina in front of an ice cream truck isn’t supposed to be hot, is it?  Who knew?

Lyrics for the song include:

…pick her up and set her on your face
pick a large area, give her some space
she needs some room to place your mouth where she want it
let her ride your face like she’s about to come on it…

Sounds like great advice to us!

Check out the official Goddess and She website for tour dates, downloads and other news! We hope to see/hear these folks at upcoming Pride events and festivals (and anywhere else for that matter)!

Nominate your choice for “Positively sexy video” with any video (old or new) that you know to have a sex-positive message. In other words, a sexy video that is not phobic, judgmental or just plain tacky. Humor is encouraged, sexiness (and a certain amount of sophistication) is mandatory!
