Squirting, Gushing, and Ejaculating: Dr. Vixenne Brings the Facts to Stockroom U.

Dr V-clitardis-square

On Saturday, Feb 27, Dr. Vixenne will come to Stockroom University to talk about a very popular — and very misunderstood — topic: Squirting. While ejaculation has typically been considered something that you can only do with a penis, people of all genders have been more and more interested in how to spray, squirt, or gush with a vagina. It can be a very beautiful, sexy thing, but also and extremely frustrating one because there are so many rumors, fetishes, and misconceptions surrounding squirting. As a prominent sexologist and educator, Dr. Vixenne will be helping Stockroom University students understand separate the myths from the facts. We asked her how to tell the difference between the two. 

Female ejaculation has become increasingly popular, at least as something to aspire to or to try out. When somebody comes to a workshop like yours, what kind of myths do they bring with them, and what are the realities?

Some myths around squirting tend to be things like “Is it pee?” (It’s not.) There’s very little urea in “female” ejaculate, usually just what’s left in the urethra from the last time the person urinated. It’s actually very similar to “male” ejaculate, minus sperm, along with sugars.

Another misconception I hear a lot is along the lines of “Is it as explosive or dramatic as in adult films?” And certainly, there may be some people who are capable of ejaculating copious streams, but not everyone can, and remember — that’s movie magic with editing and whatnot. Sometimes, it simply a warm gush or trickle. Neither should be a value judgement. Both are awesome.

How Do You Give a Kinky Massage? Master Hercules Shows Us How at Stockroom University

Master Hercules

Master Hercules

Can massage be kinky? For many, the instinctive answer would be a derisive snort; as soon as you say “kink,” the images that first come to mind for most people look like the stage gear for a concert by The Cramps circa 1987: black leather catsuits, chains, collars, whips, and wickedly shiny pointy things. Say “massage,” on the other hand, and you’re more likely to call forth images of gently sensual touching, perhaps enhanced with the application of organic coconut oil on your partner’s skin and some smooth jazz playing in the background.

A quick browse through our site will show just how much we love the black-leather-and-chains style of kink. But at the same time, if we’ve learned nothing else after twenty-seven years of designing and selling BDSM gear, it’s this: anything can be kinky, no matter how vanilla it looks on the surface.

Feb 13: Michael Ellsberg On How To Safely Kink Up Your Relationship

Michael Ellsberg

You’re talking about how to inject kink into a previously vanilla relationship this Saturday, is that right?

Yeah, it is my sense that there are a lot of singles and couples who are very curious about getting into [BDSM], especially after the book and movie which shall not be named. It’s daunting to get into it. When I was getting into it, I didn’t quite know where to go. I found the scene overwhelming; there are all these terms that are new, there’s perhaps different shades and flavors of kink that newbies are a little bit alarmed by at first, and so it can be challenging to get into it. So, I want to provide a really safe, beginner-friendly place to get just the absolute basics of kink and BDSM.

Mistress Kara Gives Stockroom the Ins and Outs of Good Strap-On Sex


This week, Stockroom University makes its return with a very popular yet misunderstood topic: Strap-on sex. Dildos are perhaps one of the oldest sex toys around; depictions can be found in ancient Greek vases, and there are even some artifacts from the Paleolithic Era that may have been early dildos. With all their history and popularity, though, people also pick up a lot of half-truths and misconceptions about what strap-on sex is like and how to go about it for the first time. Fortunately, Mistress Kara, the Manager of our own Stockroom Syren Boutique, has extensive knowledge about strap-on sex and will be sharing it this Saturday at Stockroom University. She’ll be covering topics including how to choose the dildo or harness that’s right for you and your partner and how to insure pleasure for wearer and receiver alike. In the Q&A below, Mistress Kara gives her thoughts on some of the basic issues.

As you might already know, this week is a busy one for us. We’re putting on the erotic equivalent of our Sunday best and getting ready to head for Las Vegas to attend this year’s AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The action starts on Thursday, January 20, and lasts through Sunday the 23rd. We hope that lots of you will be there to drop by our booth (#820 in Muse Hall) to say hi in person and check out our gear. If you can’t make, though, the very first thing that you should do is follow us on Periscope to get an inside view. Our Executive Creative Director, Shawn Gentry, will be giving live updates every hour on the hour. Shawn will be interviewing and playing with stars from Burning Angel Productions (including Joanna Angel herself), taking you behind the scenes to parties, and much more. Even if you are at AEE yourself, Shawn’s reports are sure to let you know where all the good stuff is happening at any given time. And there is going to be A LOT going on. Here’s a few of the things that we’ll be doing:

Wicked Pictures Star jessica drake Offers Frank Talk on Porn and Sex Education


On January 16, Stockroom University will be proud to welcome jessica drake, one of the biggest names in adult entertainment today. With over 300 performances and three AVN Awards for best actress to her credit, she’s one of the most prolific and acclaimed talents in the industry. But when making appearances to promote her videos at adult boutiques and events, she found that many of her fans craved not just entertainment, but answers to the questions about sexuality that schools and parents regularly ignore. People of all genders grow into adults trying to parse out those answers for themselves, and often the first place they turn to do that is porn, which drake feels is an inappropriate source of education.

So she decided to begin filling that gap with jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex, a series of instructional videos that now covers fourteen volumes on topics ranging from fellatio to plus-size sex. She talked to us about why she was inspired to start working on sexual education and why porn might a great source of fantasy, it’s not a good source of education.

Stockroom University Starts the New Year With Two Amazing Workshops by Midori

Midori - January 9 Stockroom University is starting 2016 in the best way we can imagine: With not one but two workshops by the acclaimed sex educator Midori. This Saturday, she comes to Los Angeles to take on the physical and psychological elements of kink alike with a double bill of The Elegant Whip: Amazing Hands-On Flogging Training and How to Create Amazing Scenes: Get Into Their Heads.

Many people first became familiar with Midori as one of the leading educators about rope play. Her 2002 book The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage remains indispensable for anyone interested in shibari and related techniques, and her Rope Dojo intensive workshops continue to be in high demand, as do her Forte Femme workshops for female dominants.

As this pair of workshops shows, though, she’s one of the most articulate and widely-knowledgeable educators in the field, and her knowledge goes far beyond rope and domination. Her books include Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink (Available from The Stockroom’s publishing arm, Daedalus), Master Han’s Daughter: True Tales From Depraved Neo-Tokyo, The Toybag Guide to Foot & Shoe Worship, and you can buy her video Midori’s Expert Guide to Sensual Bondage in The Stockroom’s online store. We’re very proud to be starting out the year with her. She gave us a few sneak peaks of what she’ll be teaching this Saturday.

We talked with her a little about what she thinks is wrong about our society’s attitudes towards sex, how we can work towards healing that feeling of brokenness, and where kink fits into all that.
