Betty Dodson, BUST’s former sex advice columnist, has released her sexy memoir! My Sexual Revolution “the story of one woman's struggle to liberate female sexuality while enjoying her own” and is available through her website.
The 81-year-old sex positive feminist has taught thousands of women how to pleasure themselves in her Bodysex workshops over the past 25 years and has contributed greatly to women’s sexual liberation through her erotic art that was shown in 1968 and her vulva slideshow which was shown at NOW’s 1973 Sexuality Conference.

The FDA is deciding on whether or not to endorse the latest medication for lady problems: flibanserin. Dubbed the “pink Viagra,” this pill does what the little blue pill did for men in increasing their sex drive, supposedly.
The medication alters the chemicals in a woman’s brain into thinking more sexual thoughts, and apparently the German manufacturers are not sure how they came upon this potential gold mine of a pill (an estimated $2 billion market in the US). Originally, flibanserin was designed to treat depression but failed. Read More

It’s okay for women to have sex as long as they don’t enjoy it or actually desire it. That’s so fifty years ago, right? Wrong.
Claudia Bellocq, in her blog, Claudia Bites! writes about being called a slut. Awful from a man, but worse still from woman to woman. Teenage girls do it all the time. When our hormones are raging, when we’re just becoming a sexual being, it's the thing we fling at another girl to hurt her, take her down a notch, ruin her reputation. Read More

It's almost impossible to comprehend that less than 100 years ago sending information about birth control through the mail was considered not only illicit and obscene, but was illegal as per the Comstock Act of 1873. It wasn't until the 1930s that doctors were allowed to distribute information and contraceptives across state lines. And when the pill first went on sale, it was illegal to practice birth control in some parts of the country. It took a Supreme Court decision in 1965 to strike that down. Read More
In cities across the world speed dating is a popular way to date people- speedily. The general idea behind it is to get to know a number of people on the surface in one place in a set amount of time that is organized thru answering/sharing questions that are telling of your basic personality/likes and dislikes. And probs the best indicator- see how your physical chemistry gels.
For example- A quick eavesdrop on an already in progress-'Speed Dating Night at Rollo’s in NYC'- titled “Get your speed date on-2 for one coors light”:Paul: ...That’s a nice name. Read More

And that time the condom broke. Or I was careless. Or maybe it was something more sinister. Whatever happened last night, help is only as far away as the nearest Internet connection. At this nifty web site, you can simply plug in your ZIP code, and out shoots a list of options where you can pick up emergency contraception. I even tested it by plugging in obscure ZIP codes from my past, and not-2-late.com dutifully replied with a list of nearby resources.
A little clicking around on the web site however, started to weird me out. First, the immediate bounce to a Princeton web site. Read More

While being whisked away by the cops for assaulting and harrassing a limo driver, raging cyclist Perzeus Forte flashed his bad-boy good looks at the camera, officially smashing the hearts of the ladies at the BUST Magazine office, much like the windshield of the limo driver that he also smashed.
Forte's passionate uprising is the result of being clipped by limo driver Darr Mohammed while delivering packages on his bike. With his brute strength alone, Forte crushed the limo's windshield, shattered the side window, and ripped the shirt off Mohammed's back. Read More

My feminist organization hands out condoms (just the regular Durex ones) all the time on campus and one time we ran out and had to send someone on a condom run to get more. Well, in the meantime some generous soul saw our predicament and whipped 12 Magnums out of his backpack and donated it to our cause. (Why did he have 12 Magnums in his backpack on Monday morning on campus at 10am? No one will ever know but it gives a new meaning to being prepared.) Anyway, the second we put those Magnums out boys started swarming us like vultures to get one. 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.

Peggy Wilkins has a secret stash: an apartment-sized collection of Playboy magazines. Her love affair started at age 13, when she had to have an issue with teen detective Nancy Drew—wearing a trench coat and nothing else—on the cover. After her mother told her she wouldn't purchase the magazine, Peggy did what any real fan would do—she stole it.Since that day, Peggy has amassed every single issue of Playboy, including a copy of the (extremely rare) premiere issue with Marilyn Monroe on the cover, signed by Hef himself.
