Jillian Keenan wants us to talk, and she wants to put the conversation in motion with her memoir, Sex With Shakespeare: Here’s Much to Do with Pain, But More with Love. In 2012, by way of a New York Times Modern Love essay, Keenan, a journalist, outed herself as a spanking fetishist. It took her years to come to terms with this innate part of her sexuality and she did it with the help of the Bard. Here, Keenan spoke with us about her journey,...

When I meet people for the first time and they ask me what I do, my first reaction is to smile. It always lands halfway between a snort and a laugh, and with my face bright I say, “I own my own business.” Inevitably, the questioning proceeds:“Oh, what kind of business?”“I sell products online.”“Oh, what kind of products?”At this point the smile comes back again. “It’s a little out there,” I say.“What?”“I have my own brand of personal lubricants.” And then I can’t help but...

An “educational” film from 1937, “How to Undress in Front of Your Husband” begins with a warning to women that men could be watching us at any time. The male gaze — er, I mean, candid cameraman — snoops on two women while they are undressing alone in their bedroom, as the narrator explains:“In the old days the boudoir was considered a sanctuary where a lady could retire, if she wished to, in privacy. But in this age of snooping reporters and candid cameramen, nothing...

It is 2016. Young women like Amandla Stenberg and Rowan Blanchard are using their public platforms to start complex conversations about gender equality. Activists like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox are helping to increase transgender visibility in the media and by extension, in society. Matt McGorry is publicly (and hilariously) exploring how to "do feminism" as a man. Jaden Smith is the face of Louis Vuitton's new womenswear campaign, challenging the idea of gendered clothing and rocking the heck out of some outrageously expensive skirts.In...

Photo by Rudra Narayan Mitra Vātsyāyana’s Kama Sutra, an ancient Hindu sex manual written sometime between 400 BCE and 200 CE, has a reputation for mainly being a compendium of body-bending erotic positions and mind-bendingly archaic relationship advice. But upon closer inspection, the text also contains plenty of tips for keeping the flames of romance burning that are as applicable now as they were back in the day. Here are a few pearls of wisdom gleaned from this guide that might surprise you.1. Pass It OnModern-day...

You are here and your sweetheart is there...either across a crowded room or across a continent. What to do? When your partner was close, you’d have to get up, go over, reach out and touch them; when they were far away, you’d have to email, sext or Skype. But that was before technology made distance (somewhat) obsolete. With teledildonics, the science of remotely controlled sex, you can now get up close and personal no matter how near or far away you are. The question is: how good can you get...

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. I got a five-milliliter spray bottle, which is supposed to contain five doses and costs $24, and read the online instructions carefully, ready to get my vajeen higher...

Image via HBO's Sex at the City Q: I am a 30-year-old woman who can’t easily have an orgasm with only vaginal penetration. I have to have penetration and clitoral stimulation at the same time to orgasm. This often leads to me stimulating my clit while my partner penetrates me. My partner has become a little frustrated, because he wants to make me orgasm just vaginally. I think it’s more common than people think for a woman to not be able to orgasm only vaginally, but...

The conversation about birth control seems to be flowing through media outlets quite heavily. BUST, Al Jazeera, The New York Times, and even ABC News have all discussed the accessibility of intrauterine devices (IUDs) in the United States, as well as the health concerns associated with them, and the controversial question of whether or not IUDs cause abortions (this is a ridiculous accusation, by the way! They don’t. Do your research, former U.S. representative, Bob Beauprez *cough cough*).Loud headlines typically rest above these articles. It’s...

One of my favorite childhood photos is from a camping trip I took with my parents and older brother when I was nine years old. We spent nearly three weeks driving up California’s blissful, varied coast from L.A. to Yosemite, stopping in beach towns like Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Santa Cruz and Monterey. We ate fresh seafood and drove across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. We sat too close to the stage for David Copperfield’s show in Lake Tahoe and figured out all...
