There's no way around it: online dating is a stressful ordeal. But some impressive women have created new apps that give women more control, fostering a safer environment and leaving more room for actual, ya know, dating. Here are three that particularly intrigue us.
Antidate: For BUSTies in the U.K., Hatty Kingsley-Miller and Mo Saha (see above) created an app that combining features OkCupid, Siren, and Grindr. Women's profiles and locations are kept private; they can scroll through men, and if they like what they see, they can “tap” that (their picture, that is). Read More

With the imminent release of Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as the return of naked-lady-centric Game of Thrones, it seems that Hollywood is in no rush to diversify its representations of women experiencing the big O onscreen. We all know the look- just picture the infamous When Harry Met Sally scene to refresh- mouth dropped open in euphoria, back arched, eyes closed with nary a weird twitch or unbecoming grimace in sight.

Ask anybody (maybe not anybody) how much sex they’re having on the regs and you’ll get a range of answers—from, “all day, every day” to “3-4 times a week” to “I’m your mailperson, please don’t ask me that.” And all you can really do is trust their word; no statistic can be rubbed under their nose proving them lying sex-deprived losers.

Weed-oil Lube is the Next Big Thing to Put in Your Vagina
If you like smoking weed and you like having sex, there’s a good chance you also like having sex while stoned. After all, it heightens sensation, makes you focus, and gives you that underwater-y, I’m-in-a-D’Angelo-video feeling. That’s why Foria—the new lube containing active cannabis oil—seemed like the knocking-boots equivalent of winning The Price Is Right’s showcase showdown. Read More

The experience of purchasing condoms has long been geared toward men—just take a stroll down any pharmacy aisle and check out the garish boxes and butch brand names, like Trojan. But as more women take control of their sexual health and well-being, condoms are beginning to offer more than just different latex flavors. Enter the new crop of condom companies run by women. Talia Frenkel, a photojournalist, started L. Condoms (thisisl.com) after working for the Red Cross and seeing women suffering from the consequences of unsafe sex. Read More

It’s only good vibrations from here on out. There’s a new bedroom accessory coming (pun intended) and it’s in pursuit of pleasure equality.
DAME Products, the Brooklyn-based sexual health startup has made “the first hands-free, strap-free, non-intrusive couple’s vibrator” that closes the pleasure gap. EVA has flexible wings that can retract when pressure is put on them, and that makes EVA discreet and versatile. It might be TMI, but the device works because EVA tucks under the labia majora (because we know you were wondering). Read More

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 sex writing (can we retire the word “womb” in a sexual context, please?). 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 my dislike of the metaphor prevalent in our culture. Read More
