  3. Buck Angel's Black Party Story

    Buck Angel's Black Party Story

    The Hornet gay dating app Stories blog just posted a great piece in anticipation of the 40th annual, infamously sex, fetish-mad Black Party happening this weekend in NYC.

    Our very own Buck Angel®, of The Buck Angel® FTM Line by Perfect Fit Brand (and so much more) gave Hornet a particularly fun quote. Below is Buck as he was featured on the 2006 The Black Party® poster and his quote:

    Buck Angel Black Party 2006 poster

    "I performed at the Black Party in 2007. No one had ever seen a man with a pussy before, and they were losing their shit! Some were super awesome about it, and some were total assholes. But that’s how it always is when you are pushing boundaries and ideas.  So many horny men in one place and I could not believe I was there. But as I cruised the dance floor naked and only in my thigh-high work boots, the men started coming at me. Trying to touch my pussy as if it was not real. Eventually I got caught in a group of men who surrounded me. Started to push against me. Pushing me up in the air. About 30 men all grabbing at me like I was a piece of candy. They all wanted it. It was just about that time when I was literally up in the air with my arms and legs held by many and my legs spread and I thought so many scary thoughts.

    "Then a producer of the show came out of nowhere and said, “Buck! We’ve been looking for you. It’s your time onstage!” Basically saved by the bell! Who knows what would have happened, but the moral of this story is even if you are a gay man, do not underestimate the power of my pussy!”

  4. Mainly Male interviews our CEO Steve Callow

    Mainly Male interviews our CEO Steve Callow

    A wee throwback from December 2018 from our buddies at Mainly Male.

    UK writer and author Gareth Johnson recently interviewed Perfect Fit Brand CEO Steve Callow for his MainlyMale.com entertainement an lifestyle news website. (Thanks, Gareth!) The two discuss Steve as a teen inventing masturbation devices, prostate stimulation, the sex toy biz and what he thinks your first sex toy should be.

    Here's the first Q&A:

    What was the first sex toy you ever used?

    The first toy I ever used, I made myself! I was always a very mechanically-oriented guy. I won science fair awards, and would build things all day long. After puberty, I started playing around making masturbation devices out of bicycle inner tubes and electric motors. I even made a dildo one day out dipping a dowel into melted wax — that’s how they taught me how to make candles in school! For years that dildo was in my closet!

    I was 20 when I bought my first sex toy — it was at the Pink Pussy Cat in NYC, from a lady behind the counter. I was so embarrassed to be in the store. Everything was behind the counter. My eyes were wide open with fascination. Not knowing what to buy, I bought the smallest thing I saw. It was a tiny tiny butt plug — about the size of my finger. The lady kept asking me if I was sure, she said it would be too small. I bought it anyway...

  5. FKIN A(rt) FRIDAY

    FKIN A(rt) FRIDAY

    In 1999 this 1st century silver cup depicting men fucking was the most expensive single piece of art ever purchased by the British Museum

    Every Friday Erotic Intent will bring you a piece of erotic art history, from ancient Greece and Rome on up to the present day. You can see some good examples of a of erotic art through the ages in our very first post, "Dildos, Strap-ons, and Pegging: An Anal History."

    Today we present the Warren Cup and its history by way of Wikipedia (quoted text). 

    In 1999 the British Museum paid £1.8 mil ($3,682,147 today) for this 1st century Roman silver drinking cup. At the time it was the most expensive single piece of art ever purchased by the museum. 

    Depictions of gay sex where far more common in ancient Greek and Roman art that one would guess from the dearth of gay erotic art from this period on display today. Much of it was destroyed due to homophobia and ignorance. In fact, the authenticity of the Warren Cup was brought into question due to the gay sex scenes depicted. 

    "The cup is named after its first modern owner, Edward Perry Warren, notable for his art collection, which also included Rodin's The Kiss statue and Cranach's Adam and Eve painting."

    The Warren Cup

    "Illustrated drinking cups, often in pairs, were intended as dinner-party conversation pieces. Roman artwork on pottery, glass and wall-paintings with sexual acts represented were popular and were intended to be seen by all sections of society. The Romans had no word for homosexuality and the images on the Warren Cup provide an important insight into this aspect of their culture."

    FYI: In ancient Rome there were many rules regarding sex, but as the article just noted, no word for or concept of homosexualty, nor did the Romans sort people into categories based on sexual preference. There was not gay or straight. Furthermore, there was no sex-shaming for sex itself.

    Senior Citizens Are Having the Best Sex of Their Lives

    Though one has to ask since when did being 50 years old become considered "senior," this informative little article dispels some myths and recognizes some truths.

    The article quotes one of our favorite sexperts, Joan Price, author of “The Ultimate Guide to Sex After 50: How to Maintain — Or Regain! — a Spicy, Satisfying Sex Life” and the voice behind the popular blog Naked At Our Age.

    Read the full story here.

    Speaking of seniors and not-so-senior folks, Perfect Fit Brand makes several toys that may appeal to those like the couples in the article. The Zoro® strap-on is great for pegging, but also for guys with a little erectile dysfunction. The Bumper® Thrust Buffer™ provides some extra cushion for the pushin' for those for whom penetrative sex is too deep or contact with a partner's pelvis is uncomfortable.

  8. No, I’m Not Gay, I’m Bisexual—Deal With It

    No, I’m Not Gay, I’m Bisexual—Deal With It

    Freelance sex and relationships journalist and editor Bobby Box recently posted on the Logo TV blog NewNowNext a welcome Opion piece on being bisexual.

    No, I’m Not Gay, I’m Bisexual—Deal With It on NewNowNext

    As many who've written about coming out as bi have noted in the past, Bobby shares his frustrattion at the lack of support, recognition or acceptance that his bisexuality is real from gay friends. It ain't a stepping stone to being gay, fellas.

    "...gay men love to label—and sub-label—each other. The distinctions are even programmed into gay dating apps: top or bottom, masc or fem, bear or twink. Labels are powerful and ubiquitous. They unite and divide."

    The breathtakingly sensuous, and frankly hot, art of Octave Tassaert

    Thanks to @babeland_toys posting of his breathtakingly sensuous "La Femme Damnee" ("The Cursed Woman") meet Parisian painter, Nicolas François Octave Tassaert. 

    La Femme Damnee - Octave Tassaert

    La Femme Damnee - Octave Tassaert

    Some basic background expediently delivered via Wikipedia, because it's really all about the art:

    Octave Tassaert (Paris, 26 July 1800 – Paris, 24 April 1874) was a French painter of portraits and genre, religious, historical and allegorical paintings, as well as a lithographer and engraver. He was the grandson of the sculptor Jean-Pierre-Antoine Tassaert.

    Unknown - Octave Tassaert

    Unknown - Octave Tassaert

    Octave's first artistic training came from his father Jean-Joseph-François Tassaert and his older brother Paul before he was apprenticed to the engraver Alexis-François Girard. Next, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts (1817–25) from 1817 through 1825, under Guillaume Guillon-Lethière, but never won the school's Prix de Rome.

    La Femme Se Couchant - Octave Tassaert

    La Femme Se Coucher - Octave Tassaert

    Winning popular but not critical success, his works showing poor people's lives were felt melodramatic by critics but acclaimed by the public. His submission to the 1855 World Exhibition was well received by the critics, but Octave ceased to exhibit after the 1857 Salon, withdrawing more and more from the formal art world.

    L'enelevement de Europe - Octave Tassaert

     L'Enlevement d'Europe - Octave Tassaert

    Collectors of his works included Alfred Bruyas and Alexandre Dumas, fils, but in 1863 Octave stopped painting altogether and tried to become a poet (though none of his works are extant), selling all his remaining paintings to the dealer Père Martin. He declined into alcoholism, damaging his eyesight (he was treated at Montpellier in 1865, during which time he stayed with Bruyas) and finally committing suicide by inhaling coal gas[ in 1874.

    OK, so enough history. Enjoy the art, especiailly "The Cursed Woman"--one has to agree with the Babeland Instagram comment, "She look like she doin' fine."!

    As a bonus, two extra untitled paintings attributed to Tassaert are a bit randier than the above, but in the spirit of enthusiastic sex, voila!
