Dell Williams will forever be remembered as New York City’s number one resource to women’s sexual pleasure. The Manhattan born, Bronx raised woman offered other women the opportunity for sexual exploration in a time when orgasms and masturbation were considered ‘dirty’ and ‘taboo’ by opening her own sex shop called Eve’s Garden.
Williams was a former advertising executive, actress, and part of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC). Read More

Wow, are we done trying to generalize female sexual preferences yet? There are roughly four billion women on Earth, sooo anything you say in reference to ALL women is really just a hyperbole. Luckily, we live in an age where hooking up is no big deal, and slut shaming is (hopefully) on its way o-u-t, so why can't we all just be free to explore what works for us as individuals and stop trying to make globalizing statements about what ushers in a big-O?

Okay, orgasms matter and are hopefully central to your well being and happiness. But if they aren’t, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. According to an ABC report, about 75 percent of all women never reach orgasm from intercourse alone – and that is without the extra help of sex toys, hands or tongue. And 10 to 15 percent never climax under any circumstances. Orgasms are complex and require a number of physical, emotional, hormonal and psychological elements to line up just right. Read More

YouTube can be a major time-waster, or a super productive educator. Typically the difference in how you use it depends on what time of the day/night you're browsing, how many glasses of wine you may or may not have had, and how stressful your day has been. I don't think I have to outline the correlation between cat video watching and the number of times you made a mistake at work. Read More

“I’m surprised that men are selfish in bed,” said no one ever. In case you had any doubts, though, this study, which surveys 24,000 students at 21 different colleges over the course of five years, shows that 80 percent of men had an orgasm the last time they hooked up with someone, compared to 40 percent of women. Men involved in the study admitted that they don’t focus as much on pleasing their partner when it comes to random sex as much as they might a committed partner. Read More

Science, that all-knowing amorphous body of research and truth, is revealing more and more about the neurophysiological causes of spontaneous orgasm, specifically in women.
In a recent analysis of this phenomenon, The New York Times science reporter William J. Broad investigates a Rutgers University project where female brains were scanned while thinking about erotic fantasies.
Broad recognizes that this isn’t a new idea: sexologist Havelock Ellis talks about spontaneous orgasm in his turn-of-the-century studies, and Kinsey Institute namesake Alfred C. Read More

The clitoris is possibly the most powerful pencil eraser-sized nubbin' on the entire planet, but also the most controversial.
Since 1970, when Anne Koedt published the groundbreaking Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm, the clitoris has slowly but surely been moving to the fore of women's sexual pleasure. In the article, Koedt fiercely critiqued the prevailing idea that women primarily achieved orgasm through vaginal intercourse, painting the vaginal orgasm as a "myth" perpetuated to keep women bound to men for sexual pleasure.

Imagine you’re on the elliptical at the gym or biking to work thinking about Snooki’s pregnancy, Obama, and global warming when you feel a twitch right under your biking shorts. The good twitch. You start to breath a little deeper and the tingles start building, like the rapid ticks of a time bomb. You know what’s going on with your body, but why here? Why NOW?
No, this isn’t my attempt at a BUST One-Handed Read; a new Kinsey Institute study is reporting that around 15% of women can orgasm while exercising. Read More
