Sex

Lucie Blush’s history starts like a bad coming-of-age movie. Girl grows up in a conservative, uncompromising household. Girl endures a slew of unremarkable relationships, sullied by unremarkable sex. Girl becomes a porn star. Blush is no cliche, though. When I spoke to her on Skype recently, the 28-year-old feminist porn director, actor and writer said she was drawn to the industry for pragmatic reasons. After years of self doubt, amplified by the vapid misogyny of her ex-boyfriends’ porn folders, Blush resolved to make pornography she actually...
When I’d left my husband the thought of dating and sleeping with other men hadn’t even crossed my mind. I’d just wanted out of a marriage that had grown increasingly abusive and unhealthy. Before we’d started dating I’d shared details about my sexual past with my ex-husband. I’d told him, with the help of a half bottle of wine, about my childhood sexual abuse, my crazy religious family and their abstinence-only dogma, and about the rape in my mid-twenties. And then, over the course of our eight year relationship, he’d...
  Evan Rachel Wood has a message to share with you: Stop perpetuating misconceptions about bisexuality. Have you ever felt limited in this life by the constructs of gender roles and rigid sexualities that exist in our society? Evan understands. In a video, the entertainer expresses her frustration with the LGBT acronym itself, explaining, “There are these letters that represent these groups, but there are a very small number letters to represent a very large spectrum of people and sexualities.” She then delves into harrowing yet important statistics...

“We’re not together, we’re just floating through time and space,” said my work friend Daniel about his current relationship status. In that moment, it clicked. For months I wrestled to understand and describe my own semi-romantic relationships — Some of which fall on a gray scale spectrum, somewhere between friends and lovers. “We’re not together, we’re just floating through time and space,” I repeated and smiled. Months ago, a short-lived romance and in-person break up inspired me to start writing poems about men...

After a particularly long period of sexual inactivity with an ex, I finally decided to give him some action. It was terrible. TERRIBLE. I started crying in the middle and although I know he noticed, he did not stop right away. He annoyedly asked what was wrong. I hadn't yet mustered up the courage to say, "I hate you and this has been over for months," so I settled for an "I don't know." He was grateful I let him touch me at all. He...

“Do you want me to buy you a vibrator?” Mom asks, holding up the Good Vibrations catalogue. The year is 1999. I am twelve. I know what a vibrator is from watching Slums of Beverly Hills—my favorite scene involves Marisa Tomei and Natasha Lyonne tossing the buzzing sex toy back and forth while gyrating to Parliament’s Give Up the Funk. “Sure!” I exclaim. We sit at the kitchen table and peruse the catalogue together, pens ready to mark which toys look most promising. Mom suggests...
Hello, my name is Jane Doe. And I accidentally got pregnant. From a one-night stand, when the condom broke and the morning after pill didn’t work. My name is Jane Doe and I’m one of the Lucky Unlucky Girls. Maybe the luckiest, maybe the unluckiest. The night I met Nick, I was in a lonely, dangerous form. The tequila was tasting a little too good and I was feeling a little too bored. I only knew one “friend” at the downtown NYC bar that...
Short, heavy breaths escape our tight lips. Our chests heave up and down. I swallow hard, trying not to make a sound. Somehow, we have flipped both of our six-foot bodies all the way around, so that our heads are hanging off of the foot of my tiny twin bed. The duvet knots under my back, tangled as if there had been a category five storm. I consider readjusting, but I know the first movements after sex are always precarious. Especially the first time you...
