I did say odd. So, don't say I didn't warn you. For those who have tired of the standard Babeland sex toy fare and find it just isn't cutting it anymore, here is a list of the weird and the wacky. From Cracked: The 25 Most Disturbing Sex Toys.
1. First up, the pig tail butt plug: Have you ever wanted your partner to get down on all fours and squeal like a pig during a randy romp session? Well, you sound like the perfect customer for the pig tail butt plug. Just plug 'em up and slide in some sausage. Yee haw.
2. The anal speculum: For those who really want to get to know their loved one up close and personal -- I mean "colon" close-- there is the anal speculum. From my understanding, speculums allow doctors to peer into human body cavities. I am not sure just why you would want to see the fully digested remains of your partner's last burrito before (or even after) sex, but to each his or her own.
4. Kaylani's Foot Fetish: Some people like vulvas and some people like feet. Sadly, for those who would prefer otherwise, these two body parts are usually separated by several inches. Well, not anymore. Now you can have your foot and fuck it too, or lick it, or... well, you get the picture...
5. Hotdoll: I adore animals, and I usually get my cat some catnip for Christmas. Some pet owners prefer to attend to their pet's other needs. For them, there is the hotdoll: a doggy vibrator. Yep, it's come to that. I am sure Paris Hilton probably has twenty.

It becomes attached to an inappropriate object (according to Freud), and next thing you know -- you (yes, you sitting there with the rubber pants on) are prancing around like a pony with a bit in your mouth. This is how Freud understood the development of a fetish (technical term paraphilia) -- slang term (flying your freak flag).
Of course, you could also use learning theory to explain human sexual kinkiness too. For example, as a child, a cross dresser could have gotten a major (if incidental boner) upon accidentally glimpsing his aunt in her skivvies. And somewhere in the dark recesses of his youthful, kinky brain he put two and two together and came up with skivvies = supersized boners! Eventually, a fun idea was born -- let's try wearing them! Of course, I doubt it is that direct. But still...who knows.
Hooking up has been the subject of a lot of media attention over the last few years. Most of it not good. Leaving aside those who insist that hooking up is leading women (but not men) down the merry road to hell, there is a far greater problem.
Seems, it may not be that much fun anyway -- at least not for the woman. According to an upcoming article in the Journal of Sex Research, many women find it difficult to negotiate cunnilingus with casual sex partners.
Laura Backstrom, Elizabeth Armstrong, and Jennifer Puentes conducted in-depth interviews with 43 participants. And found, in general, that muff diving was not an expected part of the hookup menu. Men mainly perform oral sex in relationships, not with a casual FWBs. This isn't a new finding. Elizabeth Armstrong has done previous research supporting the old adage "that it is better to give than to receive" is lost on the male member of most casual hookups.
Women are a far more likely to perform oral sex during a hookup than to receive it, which is one of the reasons that college age women report climaxing only one-third of the time in first time hook-ups, and no more than half the time in repeat hook-ups (more than one sexual encounter with the same person). Most women require direct clitoral stimulation to orgasm, and oral sex is one of the most common ways women climax with a partner.
On the other hand, cunnilingus is an expected part of relationship sex, which is a thorn in the side of those women who don't like it. (And not everybody does). Backstrom, Armstrong, and Puentes pointed out that negotiating these issues can be a huge problem. In hookups, women who like receiving oral sex often had to be very assertive to get it. Nor, was this always successful.
The researchers argued that cultural shame regarding the female body and female sexual pleasure led to confusion and ambiguity about the place of cunnilingus in heterosexual sex. Especially, in a casual scenario. According to England:
“Women and men are more ambivalent about the importance of women’s sexual pleasure [outside] of relationships,” says England. “Our findings suggest that both women and men have absorbed a notion that women are entitled to sexual pleasure in a relationship, but not necessarily in casual scenarios.”Plus, most men aren't that emotionally invested in a casual hookup, booty call, or random fuck, and therefore may not give a rat's rosy red one whether she gets anything out of it or not. One participant told Armstrong, in no uncertain terms, that "with his girlfriend, “definitely oral is really important [for her to orgasm],” but that with a casual hookup, “I don’t give a shit.”
Another young man echoed these cheery sentiments saying, “Now that I’m in a relationship, I think [her orgasm is] actually pretty important. More important than [in a] hookup. Because you have more invested in that person…When it’s a hookup you feel less investment.”
