Playboy Russia’s 11-strong female team heats the 2018 World Cup up
Russian women warned to refuse sex with foreigners during World Cup
Tamara Pletnyova, head of a state congressional committee on children and family affairs, discouraged women from sleeping with foreigners of different races.
“There will be girls who meet men, and then they will give birth,” “maybe they will get married, maybe they won’t. But the kids will suffer, just like they suffered,” she said referring to the children born after relationships between Russian women and men from Africa, Latin America or Asia formed during 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow.
“It’s one thing if they’re of the same race but quite another if they’re of a different race.”
In reply, a Russian PM said: “The more love stories we have connected to the World Cup, the more people from different countries fall in love, the more children are born, the better”.
President Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that Russian women “will make their own judgment,” as “they are the best women in the world.”
Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow talk about sex and masturbation
Red Table Talk is the Facebook series where three generations of women – Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow, and mother Adrienne – open their home for a series of candid conversations with family and friends.
This week they talked about sexuality. Willow said her introduction to sex came when she accidentally walked in on Jada and husband Will Smith having an intimate moment. Jada told she first learned about masturbation from her mother when she was 9 years old. She speaks to Willow’s brothers, about sex, too and she even claimed she knew when they each lost their virginity. They also talked about orgasms and Jana said “I was really into it at one point. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men. And I actually think I went through kind of an addiction, too with it….And then one day I was like, ‘Enough. You’re having five orgasms a day.”
A new hashtag for female masturbation
Masturbation Month (May) has gone but we can’t stop talking about female masturbation (and practising it), a topic still surrounded by stigma and shame.
The Pink Protest it a community that aims to redefine what activism means to young people and to create a way for activism to be both accessible and fun. It has just founded the #GIRLSWANKTOO movement which is set out to demystify the taboos around female masturbation and to encourage young women to explore their bodies to experience pleasure without shame. The pink revolution is running on its Instagram channel @pinkprotest.
Nerd quickie: virtual sexual identity on demand
Cyberpunk 2077 is the newest role-playing game from fan-favourite studio CD Projekt Red which is expected to release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
One of the most fascinating aspects that make it stand out is the complex character customization that will have direct impacts on the story.
Players will be able to not only decide the gender of V (the character’s name) but also its sexual orientation. V might be straight, gay, or bisexual, and depending on the choices, it can involve in casual sexual situations or in committed relationships that continue over the course of the game.
Research on Sex-Change Mice
Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute in London showed that they could reverse the sex of male mice by deleting a chunk of DNA called enhancer 13, or Enh13 for short.
The removal of the DNA strands caused some previously normal male mice to develop ovaries and female genitalia. This, some think, may provide some insight into the development of human sexual disorders.
Enh13 is located in part of the mouse genome that maps directly onto a region of the human genome and it could help explain disorders of sex development in humans.
Giant naturist picnic in Paris
On the upcoming 24th of June, a giant picnic will be held at the naturist area of the Bois de Vincennes public park in Paris to celebrate the Journée Parisienne du Naturisme (Parisian Day of Naturism). The day will start off with a naked yoga class in the morning.
This is another step in the naturist history of France that follows the opening of Paris’ first naturist restaurant O’naturel, last November, and the first nudist tour of the Palais de Tokyo, the museum that opened its doors to nudists in May for one day only.
Liberté. Egalité. Nudité. The series where everybody’s naked
The new French drama Nu (Nude) is set in a near-future France where a new law dictates that everyone must be naked.
Series creator explained the idea came from the November 2015 terrorist attack on Paris. Nudity becomes a metaphor for transparency: “To avoid terrorism, we have to know everything about everybody and know what they do. Maybe if we were naked and if people could see everything, maybe there would be less violence. Maybe it would improve security.” he said.
In order to avoid any confusion, there won’t be sex in the series, just nudity: “it’s a regular show but they’re naked. There’s nothing that should make people feel uncomfortable.”
