Today, ladies and gentlemen, I’m introducing you to the Eroscillator. It kind of looks like a toothbrush. I was sent the Eroscillator base, which looks like a time capsule, and seven heads to choose from. Seven! There’s the Golden Spoon, the G-Point, the Ultra Soft Finger Tip, the Seven Pearls of the Orient, the French Legionnaire’s Moustache, the Cup & Ball, and the Grapes & Cockscomb. Not only did I get the vibrator, but it came with a DVD, too! I think it was filmed in the ‘90s. As the short clip told me, “Ordinary vibrators pound. The Eroscillator moves side to side. Read More
It’s 11 a.m. and I can hear spanking. Somebody’s happy, I think to myself, then mentally pinpoint the floor (third), the bedroom (the sound designer’s), and the lover (his girlfriend). Curiosity quenched, I turn my mind back to writing. It’s morning at Hacienda Villa, and approximately 15 percent of the residents are fucking. I’m a founding member of this sex-positive intentional community, established in 2014 and housed in a gut-renovated brownstone in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Read More
Having a vagina in tow on this journey called life can mean that you pay quite a bit more for day-to-day living, no matter the country you live in. With tampon taxes and pay gaps making national news, Buddy Loans, a British loan company, added up just how much more money it costs to be a vagina owner. Unsurprisingly, many of the things that cost women in the U.K. extra transfer pretty indiscriminately to the women in the States. Let’s do the math: 1. Read More

Q: I’m an older woman (just north of 50) and, after years of being celibate, I have found myself interested in BDSM. I tried for a very long time to convince myself that I didn’t want a single shred of kink in my life, and very nearly succeeded. Circumstances in my life also made it difficult to focus on anything like a relationship, never mind one that would involve kink. I don’t want a Story of O relationship, and I don’t want to rush into too much, too soon. I want to meet other kinky people, make friends, and find someone who can show me the ropes, so to speak.

Everything You Need To Know About The IUD Plenty of pregnancy-preventing people have been washing down daily birth control since the ’60s. But a 21st-century makeover of an older, easier method has recently been giving The Pill a run for its money. The IUD—also known as an Intrauterine Device—is an inch-long T-shaped gadget that is inserted into the uterus by a doctor, sans surgery, and can prevent pregnancy for years. That’s probably why the number of people using the device has quadrupled since 2002. In the States, there are two types of IUDs, copper and hormonal. Read More
In our world today, you could get pregnant. If you’re a woman having sex with a man, that is. I mean, I’m saying it could happen if you don’t use birth control. But then again, maybe it could still happen. Condoms break, dosages can mix weirdly with other prescriptions, or like, God or Chester Cheetoh or whoever could just decide randomly to bestow the crying, shitting, diaper-bearing gift of life upon you’re already frantic life. Ug. Read More
In this day and age, sex toys aren’t as taboo as they once were. In fact, dildos are as common in a household as other living commodities. To summarize, it takes a lot to stir up the majorly desensitized Internet in terms of sex. So then why is this seemingly normal dildo causing such a buzz? For starters, it can “impregnate” you. Not literally –now that would be cause for conversation. But, yes, if your fetish so desires, this Ovipositor dildo from Primalwere will cater to your fancy. The Ovipositor comes in two forms and eight different colors. Read More
The July/August issue of Annals of Family Medicine provided a not-so-shocking discovery that women over the age of 60 are still having sex (and enjoying it). As a sexually active woman in my 20’s, I want to declare that I will never not (yes, that was a double negative) want to have sex and promise my opinion will be the same in 30 years time. Nobody should assume any woman becomes inactive after menopause, either, but that’s an entirely different subject on gender stigma we can save for later. Read More
It’s hard to tell if you’re a slut, sometimes. Most of us have heard it at least once, to our faces, behind our backs, written in a bathroom stall (do people still do that?). Read More
