Sex News: Star Wars sex toys, RIP August Ames, Lady Chatterley’s court case, and much more

  • “The company, Geeky Sex Toys, has a history of making… geeky sex toys. Last year, as Mashable noted, it produced a series of Pokémon-inspired sex aids. There are also toys based on Rick and Morty (Dick and Horny), Power Rangers (The Mighty Moaning Anal Rangers), and Guardians of the Galaxy (Orgasms of the Galaxy). But the new “Star Toys” line is on another level and inspires some… questions.”

  • “A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in favor of a Virginia man who, as a teen, was once ordered by a lower court to be photographed while masturbating in the presence of armed police officers. That warrant was ostensibly part of an ongoing sexting investigation into the then-teen, Trey Sims, who had exchanged explicit messages with his then-15-year-old girlfriend. Her mother reported the incident to the Manassas City Police Department in January 2014.”

  • “In a windowless room at a two-story soundstage in San Francisco’s Mission District, a group of women from different worlds met for the first time. Judd, every bit the movie star in towering heels, leaned in to shake hands with Isabel Pascual, a woman from Mexico who works picking strawberries and asked to use a pseudonym to protect her family. Beside her, Susan Fowler, a former Uber engineer, eight months pregnant, spoke softly with Adama Iwu, a corporate lobbyist in Sacramento. A young hospital worker who had flown in from Texas completed the circle. She too is a victim of sexual harassment but was there anonymously, she said, as an act of solidarity to represent all those who could not speak out.”

(The 2001 film Bridget Jones’s Diary celebrated legalisation with a pretty explicit scene between Renée Zellweger and Hugh Grant.)”

Sex News: No more porn at the Armory, PornHub’s ID grab, gay slang does ‘Dropbox’

  • “A British law that forces porn site owners to check visitors’ ages could lead to a global database of viewing habits ripe for hacking, say digital rights activists. The Digital Economy Act of 2017, passed into law on April 27, is expected to require websites to check user ages using a regulator-approved verification method starting in May 2018. Privacy advocates are fearful that MindGeek, which has over 100 million daily visitors to its sites that include PornHub and Brazzers, could create a database of adult viewing habits on a scale never seen before.”

I [30M] need more from my partner [30F] sexually, mismatched sex drives and more.

Sorry for the crap title.

I wasn't totally sure that this belongs in /r/sex so please let me know if there is a more suitable subreddit.

I've posted this using a throwaway. I'm more of a lurker and don't post much on reddit but I'd still rather this wasn't tied to my main account.

Ok, here we go.

I've been with my wife for fourteen years and married for eight years. We've got four kids aged between four and twelve. We had some tough times in the past but that's well behind us now and overall I'd describe our relationship as very good.

I've always had a higher sex drive than my wife. I'm not sure she has a low sex drive but it is much lower than mine. Whereas I want it every day, she could go for days or maybe even weeks without.

We spent years muddling through but earlier this year we had a long conversation and things have gotten more frequent and we're having sex three or four times a week now which I'd guess is kind of average for a married couple.

The thing is, it's still not enough for me. It sounds corny to say it but I find my wife ridiculously sexy and I'm incredibly attracted to her. I literally can't get enough of her. I can't keep my hands off her and I'm like a horny teenager around her. I very, very rarely masturbate, but if I do, it's thinking about her. I literally get hard from the sight of her in a pair of shorts and a vest top. I fancy her now as much as I did when I first met her and I appreciate how lucky I am to have found someone who is not only a 10/10 but also a brilliant mother and wife.

I constantly tell her how sexy she is but I'm pretty sure she doesn't believe me. I continue to do it anyway because I think she should feel desired and know how she makes me feel but also as a way of making her feel more attractive in her own eyes. She has a few body issues (minor ones as far as body issues go) and I don't want her to feel like she's unattractive because she isn't.

Sometimes when I tell her these things or try and cop a feel, or instigate sex at a time other than bedtime she (half jokingly) says I'd find anyone attractive or that I'd have sex with anyone and jokes about me being a sex addict or says that my sex drive isn't normal.

This got me thinking. Is this a case of mismatched sex drives or could it be the sign of the start of addiction? Am I abnormal? I'm not trying (or have any desire) to find sex elsewhere and it's not affecting my life in any way other than the fact that I'm constantly horny and want to have sex with my wife.

I'm starting to feel like a bit of a pervert and a sex pest. I feel shitty that I'm constantly trying to instigate sex and then I feel shitty when I'm turned down. I feel shitty that she doesn't lust after me like I do after her and I feel shitty that what we've got now is enough for her but it's nowhere near enough for me. And I feel shitty that I'm complaining about all this when I know she's made an effort with getting our sex life back on track.

While the sex has become more frequent, all other aspects have stayed the same. It's always in the bedroom, it's always in the dark, it's always just before bed, it's always pretty standard. No anal, very rarely with toys, hardly any oral, maybe a quick hand job before we get down to it. The actual sex is good but I just want more. Why can't we have sex downstairs when the kids are in bed? Why can't we lock ourselves in the bathroom for five minutes if the kids are downstairs and occupied? Why can't we touch each other whilst we're watching TV? Why won't she give me a blow job just for the sake of giving me a blow job? Why won't she sit on my face? Why doesn't she seem as into me as I am into her?

The whole thing is making me paranoid and insecure. I don't feel that she's particularly attracted to me any more and I'm starting to think that I don't do it for her sexually either.

Maybe I'm expecting too much and just need to be thankful for what I've got. Maybe I am too needy and demanding. I don't know.

I don't even know what I'm asking for here. It helps to get it off my chest, especially as this is the sort of thing I wouldn't be able to talk to anyone about. If anyone has any advice I'd be glad to hear it.

Thanks for giving me somewhere to rant.

tl;dr: We got our sex life back on track but I still want more. I need to feel desired and wanted sexually and it's starting to get me down. Starting to wonder whether I am developing some kind of sex addiction or whether I'm just unrealistic and needy. Feeling confused and could do with someone else's perspective.
