Sex

Q: My fiancé and I had a blockbuster sex life, but then he almost died and became disabled. It’s been almost two years since we had sex. He hates his body and is too embarrassed to be sexual. He refuses therapy. How can I help him accept his body enough to be sexual again? –Sexless in Seattle A: I, too, have a partner who was rendered rather suddenly disabled, so I feel you. Part of the issue with acquiring a disability is the shock of this...
  Prods to help your flaccid partner get a stiffy in a jiffy What do you do when you and your partner want to get it on but their dick isn’t up to the challenge? Of course, there are all types of sex to be had that don’t focus on penile penetration, but sometimes you wanna get it in when you get it on. If your sex friend is being cockblocked by everyday life—stress at work, SSRIs, or, in the case of my significant other, whiskey shots—there...
If you’re active on social media today (and if you’re not, we don’t blame you), then you’ve probably seen people tweeting about the IUD. As you probably know, the IUD is a small, t-shaped device inserted into the uterus, containing either copper (like ParaGard) or progestogen (like Mirena). It prevents pregnancy for three to five years, depending on the brand. Donald Trump will be sworn in as president on January 20th, 2017. You should seriously think about getting an IUD before then. “Getting an IUD now—right now—is a...
Q: I’m queer as heck but currently in a relationship with a man. Things in the bedroom can sometimes get a little excessively hetero for me (i.e. penis-in-vagina sex is his No. 1 move). This is a problem because I also really like simulating experiences that tend to be seen as “more queer,” like prostate stimulation for him and a lot of touching and vibrator use for me. The thing is, this guy sometimes has a problem with my lovely vibe (he thinks it’s “too...
“Deep breath in. Let your abdomen rise and expand like a balloon. Now, drop your pelvic floor. Imagine a lime passing through your vagina.” It takes great mental energy and focus to move muscles that you’ve never consciously moved—muscles that you’re not even supposed to talk about. Though I can’t really tell, I must be doing it right, because my physical therapist says, “Perfect!” Then she removes her finger from my vagina and says, “See you next week!” over her shoulder as she leaves the exam...

Sex & the City “So, then, I’m leaving his apartment this morning, and he says, ‘I didn’t think you were a first date kind of girl.’”My best friend and I were having breakfast at a diner after she had a fun night out. She had been talking to Jacob for a week on a dating app when he asked her out for drinks. They met up. She liked him. He invited her back to his apartment. She met his dog. She stayed over, and she had...
The first night that we spent together, I couldn’t stop crying. Turned over on my side, I felt him stroke my back from the other side of the bed. “No matter what happens, I won’t stop caring about you,” he mumbled in a voice that only made me sob harder. Later, I thought about that moment a lot. I wanted to go to Norway and hang his picture in the streets — warn all Asian women Tindering in Oslo. We had matched seven months earlier, and at...

I've had my share of let-downs in life. Off the top of my head, I can think of several: always being picked last during gym class; realizing we couldn’t always afford the Sunny D, and thus having to settle for generic, store brand juice; finding out that Santa Claus wasn't real. Sure, these all seem like insignificant stressors that can be ignored with little effort. Maybe they were; who knows? However, I realize now, as a poor excuse for an adult, that I never really...
Much is made about the differences in political parties, but how does that translate to bedroom politics?

Photo via Planned Parenthood Over the past 100 years, Planned Parenthood has served as a safe haven for those who cannot afford expensive procedures or may not have access to information concerning their health otherwise. And with a motto like “Care. No Matter What,” it comes as no surprise that the clinics and their mission are still going strong. Since the beginning, Planned Parenthood has worked hard to identify new ways to protect and stand up for sexual health and advocate for the power of information....
