According to Godwin, a man going by the name of...

ICANN Green-Lights .XXX Domain for Porn Sites

ICANN, the governing body that oversees top-level domain names, gave a thumbs up to the controversial .xxx suffix on Friday, finally bringing a heated and lengthy debate to a close.

FyreTV: A Streaming Pornucopia, For a Lonely Valentine's Night In

There's another streaming media box on the market, but you won't be able to find the 'Scooby-Doo' movie on it. Oh, wait -- yes, you can. That is, if you're looking for the version that features Shaggy and Fred double-teaming Velma inside Old Man Withers' haunted dildo factory. Those meddling kids! But seriously, the FyreTV streaming porno box (NSFW link, obviously) is perhaps the best gift...

The World's Most Beautiful Vibrator: Jimmyjane Fuses Design and Sex

Sex objects don't look like themselves anymore.

BlackBerrys, Facebook Have Changed the Face of Prostitution, Sociologist Finds

Today's high-end prostitutes book their own appointments on BlackBerrys and rely on Facebook, rather than pimps or madams, for self-promotion. That, in a nutshell, is what Columbia sociology professor Sudhir Venkatesh discovered while doing research for a Wired report on New York's sex workers. Venkatesh spent a full year following some 290 sex workers in the city, and made careful observations on...

Why Don't More Women Contribute to Wikipedia?

To most people, Wikipedia represents the ultimate in egalitarian encyclopedias. It's a place where any Internet user can go to add their own knowledge on virtually any subject in the world, regardless of individual expertise or background. But recent statistics show that, in spite of its intrinsic openness, Wikipedia's playing ground may not be as level as it seems -- especially when it comes...

For Women, Text Messages Mean More Sex

Share Take it from a lady: Nothing gets a gal's heart racing like longing, hand-written missives, promising sweet nothings and slipped into hands or lockers, bags or under doors. Or, you know, a 160-character text message drunkenly sent at 3 a.m. Apparently, lovelorn romantics of the digital age no longer sit up all night on the phone, draining the battery on the cordless and then sneaking...

From the Consumer Electronics Show to the Adult Entertainment Expo, we looked at the forward-thinking objects meant to bring (and create) pleasure. At Switched, we are big proponents of rethinking the way women (and men) can use technology for pleasure, and the days of anatomical, phallic sex objects -- for us at least -- are over. These gorgeously designed devices are intuitive and feminine,...

Gadget or Porno? CES Edition!

Every little company that comes looking for fortune and glory at each year's CES faces one primary task: memorable branding. Taking cues from the heavyweights, some might opt for a sleek neologism (like Microsoft), a symbolic portmanteau (Verizon), or even something familiar in the natural world (Apple). A bad name, though, can wreck a brand image from day one. So, why would anyone opt for a...

Ah, Finally. Kinect Porn Has Arrived, Thanks to ThriXXX

Well, it was inevitable. The second we start augmenting reality, using our bodies as controllers, and bringing our physical spaces into video games, we are immediately going to start thinking of virtual sex.

Thanks to British research, you may soon be able to test yourself for sexually transmitted infections with nothing more than your smartphone and a wee bit of wee-wee.
