Last week, the winner of the most important accolade in the literary world was announced. I am, of course, talking about the Literary Review's Bad Sex in Fiction Award.
Forget the National Book Award. Back off, Pulitzer. Man Booker who? An Oprah’s Book Club Sticker has more influence than all those combined. The real prestige comes with winning a Bad Sex in Fiction award. It means your work was good enough that those other prizes could ignore your terrible ... Read More
In 2012, educator Al Vernacchio gave a TED talk about everyone’s favorite things: pizza and sex. He was concerned with the fact that sex has too often been associated with baseball. Personally, I love this new pizza metaphor for sex. Whenever I heard the baseball/sex metaphor it was usually a man talking and I mean come on! It’s such a sexist way to describe sex. Plus I never liked baseball, so I’m a little biased.
Vernacchio shares ... Read More

On last night's episode of "Sex in the Wild," a 4-part PBS series that investigates the sex lives, mating behaviors, and reproductive systems of a variety of animals, the subject was marsupials. That's right: we learned all about Kangaroo vaginas, Koala penii, and the 4-headed Echidna penis.
But first, a warning: This post (and the show itself) is NSFW: Not Safe for Wussies. If you are easily skeeved out by nature, you might want to move on.

Recently, I came out as bisexual (surprise, Mom!) and was met with entirely positive reactions from everyone I told. However, before coming out I was terrified of telling people. I've heard bisexuals being totally discounted, and with rampant bi erasure and biphobia in media, spewed by people I know online and in real life, it's no wonder I was freaked. So, here's a list of myths that are as false as can be regarding bisexuality and pansexuality. Let's learn ... Read More

There are two great beauties in this world: flowers and beards. Why had no one thought to combine the two until now? Flowers are a gift from nature, a beauty unmatched until…men decided to grow out their face hair. Am I right ladies? A good beard can churn up my insides faster than ripped abs or perfect man style.
The combination of the romantic and stereotypically “feminine” nature of flowers with the uber masculine connotation of facial hair ... Read More

Sexting is slowly becoming a less taboo topic, and I’m all for it. As long as you’re two consenting adults OLD ENOUGH TO LEGALLY BE HAVING SEX then cool, I say send pics of your wiggly bits to each other all you want.
The big issue I do see with sexting is the unwanted sharing of photos and video, which can often lead to the widespread distribution of revenge porn. If only there was some way to send naughty photos with a guarantee that they would ... Read More
