Flibanserin, also referred to (incorrectly) as “female Viagra,” has been a hot news topic lately. A few weeks ago, BUST wrote a story about this pill, and I couldn't stop think about what this whole thing would mean for women who identified as asexual. After years of debate, flibanserin, the first drug designed to boost women’s libido, was finally approved by the FDA last week. Most feminist communities had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the pill and its approval. Read More
Like many sexually active, heterosexual women, I have had my fair share of experiences with men trying to explain to me that condoms just don’t “work” for them. I’m a little embarrassed to report that in my younger years when I was less experienced and much less confident, I might have tried to convince them otherwise or negotiate some way for us to have sex anyway (usually ending up doing it on his terms).

When you take your pill, the clock resets. You simply open up the device, pop out a pill, and bam. You’re done for the day. Read More
In 1966, U.S. News and World Report asked: “Is the Pill regarded as a license for promiscuity? Can its availability to all women of childbearing age lead to sexual anarchy?” Did you laugh? I did. Ready for another laugh? People believe that Gardasil, the vaccine for HPV, will make you promiscuous... and should therefore be avoided. I’m not kidding! It’s 2015 and people still fear the false relationship between reproductive health technology advancements and promiscuity. I know, those things are terrifying. I have nightmares about promiscuity.
