Stuff We Love, for Summer
05/23/2013 | Peaches
I asked my beloved pinner to create a Peaches Pinterest board of ideas for quirky brides. While doing so she found a wonderful site called Offbeat Bride, run by a fellow Seattleite. It’s chock-a-block full of interesting, unique and personal ideas for a nontraditional wedding. This photo is from this post and taken by James . . .
Sexy is Timeless
05/22/2013 | Peaches
We’re inundated every day with images of female beauty. The folks that art direct those photo shoots and then later assemble those photos into catalogs and magazines are looking for what is interesting to the camera. The lens makes its own demands. . . for angles. Cheekbones. Enormous lips. Stark clavicles. Erin Heatherton in a . . .

I drifted weightlessly from my cabin, still childish enough to enjoy the zero gravity. Propelling myself along the wall, I entered the main deck where Tom was frowning at a control panel. “Hey!” I greeted him, “How’s it hanging?” “Oh hi Kat.” Tom grinned ruefully at my joke. The same one I asked every time . . .
Al Fresco Frolics with Scarlett
05/17/2013 | Scarlett Ryan
Finally, after the worst winter I can remember, we have sunshine! I woke up my fella yesterday morning, all excited and thinking about picnics and afternoons in the park. However his first thought was rather racier. “Great. That means sex outdoors,” he said. Indeed, al fresco sex is one of my favorite things. The different . . .

It’s here–the finale to this sexy erotica series by Olivia London! If you missed the other sexy stories in this series you can read them all here.

About That Duct Tape. . .
05/14/2013 | Jake Uitti
Thoughts and experiences from a guy who has dated, argued with, loved, been embarrassed by, failed, offered joy to, and danced with women. I want to inspect what it is that is confounding, interesting and lovely about my relationship to women. . . and what shade of pink is that? –Jake Uitti I recently started . . .
50 Shades of Play: Make a BDSM Wish List
05/13/2013 | Euphoria Welty
The runaway blockbusters of the last few years have put a spotlight on power play in the bedroom. Which, in and of itself, is fantastic. It’s a fantasy realm with so many possibilities. But all forms of power playing, from a giggling adventure with fur handcuffs and an ostrich feather, to the disciplined levels of . . .
Teach Him How to Touch You
05/10/2013 | Scarlett Ryan
One of the biggest complaints I hear from women is that their partner’s manual technique leaves a lot to be desired. He’s either not pushing your buttons in the right way, or failing to find them at all. Unfortunately many of us, rather than taking steps to address it, pretend everything is fine and inwardly . . .
My Experience With Boudoir Photography
05/09/2013 | Stella Harris
“You should come to my studio sometime.” It sounded like a bad pick-up line but in this case we had mutual friends so I decided to give it a try. The photographer directed me to a page on his website with tips on preparing for a photo shoot, and I studied it at length as . . .
Blow His Mind
05/08/2013 | Faye With a Knee
We’ve all been out on the town with our significant others when suddenly our worst nightmare is walking by in four inch heels. . . the gorgeous bombshell. She’s totally his type and you know he’s looking. HE knows he’s looking, but is hoping that you somehow missed the girl and the glances. Most of . . .
What She Owed Him, Part Four
05/07/2013 | Olivia London
This is the second-to-last chapter in Olivia London’s erotic series. Stay tuned for the finale, next week. Fiona waited. And waited. She was tempted to masturbate but she could imagine her lover’s ire if he walked in on unsanctioned wanton self-pleasuring. No, that’s not what a good sub does. She closed her eyes and replayed what had just . . .
How to Talk to Your Guy
05/03/2013 | Scarlett Ryan
If you want your man to treat you like a princess, you need to start acting like one. And I’m not referring to having diva strops and being scared to do any hard work in case you break a nail. That’s not a princess, that’s a brat. What I mean is: don’t take any shit. . . .
Cinco de Mayo Hibiscus Flower Tacos
05/02/2013 | Nikki
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo–hibiscus flowers add an exciting tangy, sweetness to these tasty little tacos. (You can buy dried hibiscus flowers online here or here, or you may find them at your nearest Mexican grocery). Share these with a lover this Sunday with margaritas–I did, and it was definitely a fun meal. . . .

Myth One: Bras prevent your breasts from becoming saggy as you get older Many women believe that without a bra their breasts will slowly (or rapidly!) succumb to gravity, getting down like there is a party hosted by their knees. Recent studies have suggested that instead of helping prevent sagging, wearing a bra may actually . . .

This is the last article a three-part series. If you missed them, read about setting up your party space and your bar. Now we get to talk about. . . The Food This is both fun and frustrating.

Scarlett’s Brief Guide to Blokes
04/26/2013 | Scarlett Ryan
As you may have noticed, we’re spending each Friday with Scarlett Ryan, a former adult actress and writer (and yes, she is English). This week she shares her personal viewpoints on various types of lovers. I love a good debate and heartily disagree with her opinion on Jokers, having found a few clownish personalities surprisingly . . .
Your Real Beauty
04/25/2013 | Peaches
You’re probably familiar with Dove’s Real Beauty campaign, but you may not yet have seen this remarkable video they released a couple weeks ago. Using a real-life forensics artist to draw ordinary women based purely on their verbal description, Dove captures a heartbreaking truth: we judge ourselves much more harshly than others judge us. We . . .
Thiakry: Yummy Senegalese Desssert
04/24/2013 | Nikki
If you have never had Senegalese food, you are missing out. If you live in Seattle, drop everything you are doing this moment and go directly to La Teranga. Best food EVER. Sadly, I never have room for dessert, so I made note of the thiakry (pronounced cha-kree) dessert on their menu. I was quickly . . .
Just Say Yes (Erotica)
04/23/2013 | Olivia London
To Aidan, the blond woman in the low-cut sexy black dress was the only dame worth checking out at this lousy office party. And a dame worth looking at was worth having, in his book. Her beauty filtered through the room like a mist and he was aware of every male gaze caressing the silhouette . . .
Honor the Earth the Peaches Way
04/22/2013 | Peaches
It’s Earth Day! Celebrate by getting naked! Here in Seattle we’re still quite far from naked-friendly weather, so I can’t realistically suggest we all run outside in the buff. How does a sexy gal celebrate this important day, then? 1. Make your own skincare. Reduce your consumption of packaging and ensure that what you’re lavishing . . .
