The latest weird vagina trend is...glitter. That’s right, apparently people are sticking little pills full of glitter in their vaginas. There’s a product that exists in this world called Passion Dust. Passion Dust comes in glitter capsules that you’re supposed to stick up your vag. They then dissolve and your discharge gets sparkly. According to the website that sells them, prettywomaninc.com: PASSION DUST is a sparkalized capsule that is inserted into the vagina at least 1 hour prior to having sexual intercourse. As the capsules becomes increasingly...
Sex and intimacy can be particularly tricky for those of us who have experienced trauma. As a kid, I grew up in the midst of chaos and abuse, and as an adult, I’ve had some troubling romantic relationships in which my emotional boundaries have been repeatedly violated. After my last relationship ended with me getting a protective order, I decided to take a break from dating for a while and focus on the most important person in my life: me. I turned to Chamin Ajjan, psychotherapist...
Q: My boyfriend won’t go down on me as often as I’d like. I’ve spoken to him about it, and he always promises to eat me out more, but never does. I know he doesn’t like being wet and/or sticky, and I’m a squirter, so maybe that’s why he’s hesitant. What can I say or do so that we can both enjoy oral sex? – Unlicked Pussy Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen: With all the stereotypical nonsense about guys liking to get dirty, it can come as...

Q: My boyfriend has been experimenting with orgasm denial and chastity devices by himself, and now we’ve incorporated this into our sex play. I’m psyched to see him get off, and I have fun, too, but I’m worried about the safety of these toys. I have mixed feelings because I think he may have developed this fetish as a way to cope with the times I’m not as into sex as he is. He’s also interested in orgasm denial as a spiritual practice, so it’s...
As someone living with genital herpes for almost two years, I was always a little put off by dating sites specifically for people with STIs. From PositiveSingles to MPWH (Meet People With Herpes), I never understood why living with a benign virus which affects a majority of people should force us to annex ourselves from the general dating population. It was as though I had to quarantine myself because of a Tinder date gone wrong. It didn’t seem fair. After my diagnosis, I never made...
When 30-year-old sex educator Ashley Manta got a medical marijuana prescription for her chronic migraines three years ago, she visited a dispensary for the first time. This experience would be life changing, introducing her to the range of options available, and leading Manta to coin the term “cannasexual” to describe her experiences mindfully pairing sex and cannabis. But cannasexuality isn’t just buying weed from a dealer and having sex while high; it is a deliberate practice. “I found Foria, the THC-infused sex spray, in 2014,” Manta...
Q: Is there a masturbation guide for AFAB (Assigned Female At Birth) folks that isn’t full of suggestions like, “Try rubbing your clit in the opposite direction you normally do,” or “Spice things up by humping your pillow”? I’m a high-stimulation babe, so I’m looking for techniques that involve toys—maybe even a couple at once—and things going in my butthole. Is there anything out there for me? –Jilling Off Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen: There are two main things to consider when looking for new masturbation techniques: Does...

I’ll never forget the Other Girl. She had dark, tangled hair that was usually thrown in a bouncy ponytail on top of her head. She was slender, of course, with long limbs and an angular face. She would bite her nails just like I did. We were friends, and then we were enemies. Okay — the term “enemies” is sensationalized and dark and cliché, but it feels most fitting. She was, at one point, someone I liked. She was someone I had envied. She was someone...

In the summer of 2015, I was diagnosed with genital herpes. Since then, I’ve become hyper-aware of how STD/STI stigma creeps up on us. One quick note, STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) and STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) are often used interchangeably, but in the last few years, doctors and OBGYNs have started to use "STI" more frequently, as they believe it carries less of a stigma than STD. Before my diagnosis, like most people, STD/STI stigma wasn’t something I thought about. But being diagnosed at age 21 with...
