Here’s a fun little bit of coffee history. Go with me on a journey into memory. You are at your favorite diner, the one where the coffee is self-serve, just two old school glass carafes sitting on the same heating elements they have been for untold hours now. For me, I’m sitting in a red “pleather”—because even calling it pleather feels generous—booth at 3am, where everyone, staff included, is still inexplicably smoking indoors. (In this fantasy I am also in my early 20s and my back doesn’t hurt all the time, but that’s really neither here nor there.) So there you, ready to refill your mug for the fourth or fifth time, leaving room of course for whatever amount of non-dairy creamer and sugar you need to properly gird your stomach for what the war you are about to wage against it. Again. You are presented with two choices: a…

We often joke that 90% of people masturbate and 10% are liars. But how true is that? Even in LELO’s own Global Sex Survey, the rate at which people claim to masturbate is often over 90%, or close to 100%. But that’s not really a fair assessment, since the people responding to our sex survey are generally sexual people anyway, and they navigated to the survey from our sex toy site. Surely, then, those numbers are skewed, and don’t represent the wider general population.  To get a truer insight into how common masturbation is, we need to look to independent academic sources who have polled more representative groups. Lucky for us, such research has recently been conducted.  In the study, conducted by sociologists from the University of Chicago, and including 3,116 representative American adults, only 38% of women said they’d masturbated at all in the past year. Many more men,…

LELO wouldn’t be able to make great sex toys if it weren’t for the information and feedback from our customers’ pleasure, which is why we recently launched an Orgasm Quiz so we could better understand what gets you off. We’re dedicating National Orgasm Day to bridging the orgasm gap, and the first step to doing so is understanding the differences in our physiological and sexual habits.  First things first—who’s taking our survey? Unsurprisingly, our survey is being filled out by over 75% females and less than 25% males. Overall, age range 25-34 is most actively taking the quiz (57.1%), followed by 18-24 (25.3%), 35-44 (14%) and so forth. We say unsurprisingly because this quiz has thus far only been promoted through social media, and our social media following is predominantly women. Interestingly enough, however, our purchasing behavior is split pretty evenly. So is our blog readership, so we’re curious to see…

Today’s summery glam on the go! The other day, when I was wearing this makeup, I ran into my neighbor, and she asked if I was going anywhere special, to which I replied, perhaps a little too enthusiastically, “I’M GOING TO SPORTS BASEMENT!” You know the bar for your entertainment is set reeeeeeeally low when you dress up like you’re going to fancy brunch on vacation, but in reality you’re going to a sporting goods store to look for weights… Oh, the pandemic stories we’ll have to tell! 😂 A summery color palette This summery look has a few of my favorite warm-weather shades — coral and bronze! — and looks fancy, but it’s very easy to do. It also feels light and weightless, which are must-haves when the temperature’s rising. This look has three distinguishing features — long, lifted, lush lashes; warm, peachy bronze lids; and luminous skin. Streamlined…

MIDDLETON (WKOW) — A handful of protesters, some supporters and eventually police and health officials converged Wednesday outside a Middleton coffee shop allegedly flouting Dane County’s indoor mask order. A viral social media post on Monday showed a sign in the window of Helbachs coffee shop stating, “This is a mask free zone. Please remove mask before entering.” The sign had been removed by Monday afternoon. Protesters outside Helbachs Coffee in Middleton as the business continues its defiance of the Dane Co mask order.

Jul 14, 2020, 5:30pm EDT Cafe Latte Da, a cozy Fells Point coffee shop, will close its storefront at the end of the month. The cafe posted the news to its Facebook and Instagram stories Tuesday. July 31 will be the shop’s last day in business. “I have been blessed to meet some amazing humans and amazing DOGS!” the post reads. “I hope we have made your day a little better for stopping in.” John and Kelly Blottenberger purchased the coffee shop at 1704 Aliceanna St. in 2012, according to Cafe Latte Da’s website. The shop became known for the colorful art on its walls and its signature iced brews with coffee ice cubes. The cafe was also a big supporter of the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, collecting pet supplies and monetary donations for the shelter as well as donating 5% of the proceeds from roasted coffee purchases…

It’s summer on the Space Coast and you know what that means sweltering heat and stifling humidity. Luckily, between the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian River Lagoon, Turkey Creek and more, there are plenty of opportunities to cool down. Plus, with an abundance of local rental and tour opportunities, you don’t have to own your own boat, kayak or paddleboard to get your toes wet. 321 Boat Rentals & Club There is a seemingly infinite number of bars and restaurants lining the coast of the Indian River Lagoon in Eau Gallie, and 321 Boat Rentals & Club makes sure you won’t miss out — even if you don’t own a boat. Offering both boat and jet ski rentals, 321 Boat Rentals allows individuals to enjoy the river without restrictions, said General Manager Steve Payet (as long as renters practice safety precautions, of course). 321 Boat Rentals & Club is located at…

David Berlin with his family. The 51-year-old died in a boating collision. (GoFundMe photo) A Bethel man and child have both died after a boat crash Sunday on the Johnson River, a tributary of the Kuskokwim River, according to Alaska State Troopers. David Berlin, 51 of Bethel, was navigating a blind turn in his Alweld 18-foot flat-bottom skiff when another skiff, piloted by Dennis Demientieff of Kasigluk, appeared from the opposite direction, troopers said. Both boats tried to avoid each other, but turned the same way. Demientieff’s heavier skiff went over Berlin’s skiff, crushing the occupants and killing Berlin. His 5-year-old granddaughter, Danielle Berlin-Walker, was severely injured. She died on Monday. Two other adults were in Berlin’s 18-foot skiff and sustained minor injuries. Berlin’s family has set up a GoFundMe account to raise money for David and Danielle’s funerals. The nine occupants in Demientieff’s heavier skiff were not injured. Another traveler came…
