A Tasteful Guide To Sexy Time, Part 2 (NSFW)

A little over a year ago, we offered some suggestions to help those curious about the world of erotica explore their fantasies. Believe it or not, not all pornography is of the stereotypical variety wherein surgically modified Barbies make operatic noises as they get pounded by orange men with too many muscles. (Not that there's anything wrong with that; just not our thing.)
We assume you've tried all the old suggestions by now, so how about some more? From books of erotic literature and websites full of equally explorative, not to mention attractive, couples to lingerie and toys to get you looking and feeling your sexiest, there's a plethora of super-fun times out there if you just know where to look. Happy humping…err, hunting. (NSFW...obviously).
Beautiful Agony — Beautiful Agony features men and women alike bringing themselves and each other to intense climax. The twist? The camera never leaves their faces. For some, this is more erotic than the hardest of hardcore porn.
Joymii — Much like the previously discussed X-Art, Joymii is devoted to filming sex scenes in the most beautiful way possible. The men are as good-looking as the women, and four new videos each week guarantee you won't get bored.
Dicks For Girls — Do you like looking at pictures of hot naked guys? Sure you do. Dicks For Girls is a Tumblr dedicated to collecting (guess what?) all the best nude dude photos from various corners of the Internet, interspersed with photos of comely celebrities, presumably so you can pretend the dicks belong to them. (For even more smut in your feed, check out porn4ladies, too.)

Agent Provocateur — Known for its eye-catching ads and classic silhouettes, this storied lingerie house serves customers at high-end boutiques all over the world as well as online. Peruse the site and you'll find an impressive amount of variety, from the kinky "Florie" line (which comes with a chain and collar) to the modern, bandaged look of the "Cindy." Our current favorite is the '60s-inspired "Sierra," which looks especially appealing as modeled by Crystal Renn in the brand's spring '13 campaign.

Fleur of England — This line out of England does beautiful lingerie in an unexpected way. With shapes to fit women of all sizes (and levels of bravery) and product shots that feel like magazine editorials, Fleur of England makes sets that serve up sexiness without a side of cheese.
Fleur of England Dotty Balcony Bra, $99, available at Faire Frou Frou.
Journelle — If you like your lingerie nice, but don't subscribe to the Victoria's Secret school of sex, you'll love designer lingerie shop Journelle. Filled with big names like La Perla, Eberjey, and more, the e-shop also sells hard-to-find indie brands like Araks, The Lake & Stars, Only Hearts, and more. From frilly to kinky to precious to comfortable, there's a set here that'll match any appetite.
ID Sarrieri Atame! Halter Bra, $192, available at Journelle; ID Sarrieri Atame! V-String Thong, $111, available at Jornelle.

Marie Calloway's What Purpose Did I Serve In Your Life? — With the publication of her polarizing short story "Adrien Brody" just over a year ago, Marie Calloway shot to fame in the literary world, igniting many conversations about sex, feminism, "navel gazing" and what's acceptable for a young woman to write about. Since then, she's moved to New York and continued her fearless exploration of female subjectivity, using her deceptively simple writing style to describe the emotional landscape she inhabits, the line between coercion and consent, and how people use sex and technology to connect (often clumsily) in the modern world. Her fictional debut, What Purpose Did I Serve In Your Life, doesn't come out until June, but with glowing blurbs from major players such as Tao Lin and Sheila Heti, it's guaranteed to be a thought-provoking read.
$10.51, available at Amazon.
Rachel Kramer Bussel's Only You: Erotic Romance For Women — If you like your pornography in written form, this could be the one-handed read you've been looking for. Edited by the prolific Rachel Kramer Bussel (of New York Magazine Sex Diaries fame), this volume turns its attention from spanking and submission to the softer side of sex, with stories about couples you can identify with. From the married couple re-kindling their lust in a hotel to the "strangers on a plane" scenario, each story is guaranteed to jump-start your imagination.
$11.86, available at Barnes & Noble
Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist's The Sexy Book Of Sexy Sex — A spoonful of funny helps the advice go down in this sexy humor book…or is it a humorous sex book? Co-authored by husband and wife duo Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist (both of The Daily Show), it contains an abundance of sensual edutainment, from the pickup tactics of animals to the history of female anatomy to diagrams and tips you can actually use. Throw in some colorfully lewd illustrations by Michael Kupperman and Lisa Hanawalt, and you've got yourself a pleasant Sunday.
$16.47, available at Amazon.

Fleshbot — You probably already know about Fleshbot, but we're including it anyway because it really is the ultimate source for all things pornographic. Initially launched by Gawker Media, this blog is now independently run by editor/publisher Lux Alptraum and delivers an unceasing stream of smut accompanied by witty copy. Whether you're interested in the latest gay porn scene or which of your favorite celebrities has gotten naked lately, it's all there.
Tits and Sass — Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a stripper or a prostitute? Take your info directly from the source with this smart blog written completely by people who work in the sex industry. With a clean, easy-to-read layout, this site tackles everything from sex work in pop culture to professional advice to the dos and don'ts of being an ally. All that, and it's funny, too.
Slutever — If you like your sex with a dose of snark, look no further than Slutever, a hilarious blog penned by Karley Sciortino, who also does a web show of the same name for VICE. With a rare mixture of cosmpolitan humor and open-minded sincerity, Karley interviews interesting people (from models to scientists to prostitutes), shares her own experiences, and posts many glamorous #selfies. Superfans can also buy a T-shirt with a picture of her vagina on it.
