Harassmap Lets Egyptian Women Report Sexual Harassment via Text, Twitter

For many women, strolling down the streets of Cairo is no walk in the park. Whether it's in the form of catcalls, leers or gropes, sexual harassment has become increasingly common in Egypt, where strict social norms and widespread public negligence have offered little recourse to female victims. A forthcoming site called Harassmap, however, may provide Egypt's women with a new voice -- and, perha...

Duke Senior Karen Owen's Provocative PowerPoint Goes Viral, Embarrasses Everyone

When Karen Owen put together a mock senior "thesis" on her sexual conquests at Duke University, she thought it would provide some innocent amusement for her and her friends. Once the 42-page PowerPoint presentation found its way to the Web, though, the 22-year old's personal joke quickly became a viral sensation -- much to the embarrassment of those involved. In her presentation, titled "An ed...

Google Autocomplete Blacklist Marks 'Gay Men' and 'Cocaine' as Offensive

Google's auto-complete search feature has always provided a unique window into the Web-surfing habits of other Google users, but, with Google Instant, a single typo can now result in a full page of results you probably never wanted to see. Launched earlier this month, Google Instant reveals search results as you type, no longer requiring you to press 'Enter' to search. So, in order to protect u...

Craigslist Permanently Shuts Down Adult Services Section

When Craigslist suddenly decided to block its adult services section earlier this month, many speculated that the site was only trying to draw more public attention to its legally protected right to host such activity. As it turns out, however, Craigslist wasn't bluffing, and has now decided to permanently close the controversial section. During a hearing on sex trafficking of minors held by th...

Craigslist Censors Adult Services Section in U.S.

Practitioners and patrons of the world's oldest profession will no longer be able to conduct business on Craigslist, as the classifieds site has now censored all of the pages under its famed 'Adult Services' section in the U.S. On Friday, pages offering or seeking adult services were suddenly replaced by a giant 'CENSORED' bar. The site still has yet to comment on the decision. A group of 17 s...

iPhone Users Have More Sex Partners, OKCupid Survey Finds

We all know that iPhone users struggle to place or receive calls on their smartphones -- except, apparently, when said calls are of the 'booty' variety. According to a recent survey from OKCupid, iPhone owners, on average, have more sex partners than either Android or BlackBerry owners. In a survey of 9,785 smartphone users, OKCupid's team of statisticians found that the typical male iPhone keep...

Abstinence Avatar Game Teaches Kids How to Avoid Sex, 'Winning' Is Really Losing

Now, this is exactly what we've been yearning for: a video game that teaches us how to be abstinent. With avatars. Because real gamers usually have dates galore, right? Researchers at the University of Central Florida have created just such a game, in the hopes of encouraging kids to avoid kissing and making out and stuff. "Players" must wear a motion-capture suit, equipped with special infrare...

Indonesia Moves to Restrict Online Porn After Steamy Pop Star Sex Video

What do you call a porn-free Internet? Here, we'd say "our worst nightmare," (bad-um), but for Indonesian web surfers, they might soon have to call it "reality." That's because the world's most populous country of Muslim majority is planning on invoking an anti-pornography law to restrict any online fun smut that might soil its citizens' computers. Gatot Dewa Broto, a spokesman for Indonesia's ...

Sex Toy or Gadget?

Share Spurred on by Apple's rethinking of how a computer should look and act, several new companies have launched pleasure items that aren't as obvious as the adult novelties of bygone days. What this means, of course, is that clean, minimalistic design has infiltrated all sectors. The pleasure objects of yore have lost their flesh tones and garish neon hues, because, honestly, no one wants tho...

High Tech Toys in Babeland: Inside a Sex Shop for the 21st Century

Spending a morning in Babeland, one of the country's most forward-thinking, pro-sex (and pro-women) toy shops, is one of those moments that simply makes us love our jobs. Sure, we got to squeal at the Skweel, and get our finger, er, caressed by the Tenga Flip (better than, say, a board meeting, we think), but we also saw firsthand what the writers at Switched discuss every day: how technolog...

With Steamy Scenes in 'Mass Effect 2', Bioware's Bringing Sexy Back

Video games have long been the scapegoat for many of the social ills plaguing our youth. Violence, drugs, swine flu -- you name the problem, and there's a game to blame. Perhaps foremost among the moral pestilences that gaming perpetuates is, of course, sex. While most of the sex portrayed in video games has hitherto adhered to the same old formula based on vacuous, physical allure and busty ba...

Sex-AppGate: Apple Lamely Responds to Trashing Steamy Apps

We reported last week on Apple's booting of several sexually suggestive apps after Business Insider identified them in a roundup -- a move that has left many developers irate. In an interview with the New York Times, however, Apple's head of worldwide marketing Philip W. Schiller claimed that the company's rationale for banning said apps was due to "an increasing number of apps containing very obj...

'PinPointsX' iPhone App Puts Nearest Booty Call on a Handy Map

Everybody knows that technology, particularly social networking, has done nothing more than make hooking-up easier than ever (not that we'd know from personal experience). Still, it usually involved some work. But a new iPhone application does all the heavy-lifting for you by pinpointing your nearest booty call on a map. According to CNET News, the app 'PinPointsX' places the location of use...
