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
Q: I’m the mom of two boys, ages four and eight, and I want to be open and honest with them about sex—when the time comes. I feel like my eight year old is close to ready, but I’m nervous about starting a conversation he may not be ready for. Should I wait for him to ask me? I’d also love any recommendations about this conversation in general. I want to make sure that we can always talk openly and respectfully. I definitely want to educate them beyond the norm. Read More
Q: Sex has always been painful for me. Right after I started having sex, I had an extensive yeast infection that resulted in vaginal nerve damage. Pelvic floor therapy worked wonders, and I learned a number of exercises to do on my own and with my boyfriend before sex, which included everything from massage to dilators. My then-boyfriend was very supportive, but we’ve since broken up. I’m hoping to start dating again soon, but I’m not sure how to approach sex with a new guy. Despite the progress I’ve made, sex remains difficult. Read More
Intensity, a new vibrator-slash-“muscle stimulator,” has as many features as the cooking gizmos advertised on late-night TV. The shaft inflates and deflates to suit your vaginal size; it has multispeed clitoral and g-spot vibrators; and, strangest of all, it boasts adjustable electro stimulation. It claims to induce bonkers orgasms via vibration and has electric pads on the shaft that deliver small jolts to your internal muscles, causing them to involuntarily contract and eventually strengthen.

Created by a mother and daughter team, Hathor Aphrodisia lubricant lickeur aims to hit all the right spots. This vegan friendly and water based lube is infused with natural aphrodisiacs like horny goat weed and Siberian ginseng.  Hathor Aphrodisia is a soothing and gentle antithesis to the average chemical laden lubricant that dry up after a move or two. This coconut orange flavored lube glided on silky smooth and remained non-sticky and flavorful through more than a round or two. This lube is definitely a keeper but for me, the sensual love lotion has to be the stand out star. Read More
It's generally accepted that childbirth is a stressful process. That’s why a woman in labor often opts to have a doula by her side—to nurture her during intense bouts of pain and emotion. But what about when a woman decides to terminate a pregnancy? Nearly three years ago, a small group of reproductive-rights activists came up with the concept of offering doula support for the “entire spectrum of pregnancy”—including abortion—and created The Doula Project to do so.
