Streetside: Equip-Bid's auction of state-seized sex toys

Posted By on Wed, Oct 1, 2014 at 11:28 AM

Five shops' worth of dashed sexual fantasies.
  • Five shops' worth of dashed sexual fantasies.

Look north from where the 12th Street Bridge dumps you into the West Bottoms, and you’ll see a trapezoidal brick warehouse. Its occupant is Equip-Bid Auctions, and according to its owner, Andy O’Hanlon, it’s the largest auction company in Kansas City. Equip-Bid typically holds online auctions for entities that are upsizing or downsizing — liquidating a dead restaurant’s kitchen supplies, say, or selling used vehicles for a construction company that’s updating its fleet.

It’s also one of a handful of local companies that has a contract with the Kansas Department of Revenue to auction off property seized by the state. So on Monday, September 29, Equip-Bid opened its warehouse to the public to let interested bidders inspect the recently seized inventory of a Kansas business: Bang, a chain of five adult sex shops whose owner, Larry Minkoff, failed to pay more than $163,000 in sales tax to the state.

The Air Sex Championships are in town this Sunday

Posted By on Tue, Aug 12, 2014 at 1:12 PM

Oh mama.
  • Oh mama.

Last week, the U.S. Air Guitar Championships were held at the Midland. This week, it'll be pantomiming of a different kind downtown, when the Air Sex Championships arrive at the Chesterfield bar inside the Alamo Drafthouse. It is exactly what it sounds like. 

Is this the role you've been waiting for all your life ? Head over here to sign up (or just to see a banner photo of a woman engaged in what appears to be a double-fellatio pose). You can also sign up to perform at the Alamo the night of the event.

Where the cheaters at?
  • Where the cheaters at?
Ashley Madison is a website that pops up when you click porn links an online dating service that caters to married people. As such, it has a lot of raw data about what types of folks are cheating on their spouses, like how old they are, where they live, etc.

Yesterday, the site published the results of a study of its users in the Kansas City metropolitan area, titled "Neighborhood Affairs: Where in Kansas City Do the Cheaters Prosper?" Where, indeed!

Tell us your bad-love story

Tell us your tales of dates - and love - gone wrong.

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 11:00 AM

You know, Valentine's Day isn't far off. In just a few weeks, you'll try to cram a year's worth of romantic aspiration into a dinner reservation and a hastily selected greeting card.

We're not about to make fun of all that. Ritual has its place, after all, and we'll be right behind you in line at Target come 4 p.m. February 14.

But whether you're blissfully involved or bitterly sitting out love for a while, one way to get through that cards-and-candy day is to unburden yourself of the past. Old indiscretions, unhealed wounds, last Thursday's hickeys - talk 'em out.

Got a sad or weird or hot story (or one that's all three) about meeting, getting with or having to go without someone special? Send it to No names necessary, privacy assured, all relationship stages encouraged. Especially if your story is funny.

KU dating study latest excuse for egregious stock-photo usage on Internet

Posted By on Wed, Aug 24, 2011 at 12:30 PM


The fall semester has barely started, and already science is back with a don't-send-me-to-the-blackboard boner. Two University of Kansas researchers have just published survey results claiming that sexist men and sexist women are having plenty of sexist sex. Hot!

Jeffrey Hall, an associate professor at KU, and Melanie Canterberry, a social psychology student at the school, report that "assertive courtship strategies are a form of mutual identification of similarly sexist attitudes shared between courtship partners. Women who adopt sexist attitudes are more likely to prefer men who adopt similar attitudes. Not only do sexist men and women prefer partners who are like them, they prefer courtship strategies where men are the aggressors and women are the gatekeepers."

In English, this means two things.

That could be a vice cop you invited to see your penis.
  • That could be a vice cop you invited to see your penis.

The Internet has made it easier for people to find sex partners. But for some men hoping to form an immediate and temporary coupling, public parks remain a go-to destination.

Kansas City police arrested 13 men on suspicion of indecent exposure and other sex-related misdemeanors in undercover stings at Minor Park and Blue River Park in south Kansas City, according to NBC Action News. The reporter, Christina Medina, spoke to members of a remote-control helicopter club who "share" the park with men who like to cruise. One member of the club says his 13-year-old son asked him why so many cars were driving in circles.

A study supports this statement.
  • A study supports this statement.

Want a better sex life? Try atheism.

A study found that atheists have far better sex lives than religious folks. Oh, those poor, poor Christians. They still do it, but they feel so guilty that they can't enjoy their post-coital afterglow -- for days and even weeks.

Butt sex is legal in Missouri, illegal in Kansas only if you're gay

Posted By on Wed, Apr 20, 2011 at 8:38 AM


Mother Jones put together the above map to show which states still outlaw sodomy (aka butt sex). I'm sure you all will print it off to keep in your wallet, just in case you find yourself in Montana and want to know if anal is legal. (It's only illegal if you're gay in Big Sky Country.)

As you can see, Kansas has the same standard. But we already knew this.

Farts, cousins and missing condoms: Kansas City's most embarrassing sexual moments

Posted By on Thu, Feb 10, 2011 at 1:00 PM

This woman wasn't embarrassed. You shouldn't be either.
  • This woman wasn't embarrassed. You shouldn't be either.

In this week's issue of The Pitch, we unveiled the results of our recent Kansas City sex survey, which polled 1,100 readers on their sex lives. (Read the full results here.)

They're a hilarious, if scientifically foggy, window into the sex lives of Kansas Citians -- and none of the questions yielded better responses than the one that asked about your most embarrassing sexual experiences. So while we only included a handful of favorites in yesterday's results, we thought we'd let you see the rest.
