  IT’S BEEN NEARLY 50 years since the United States Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that protects a woman’s right to abortion. The 1973 ruling didn’t guarantee your abortion access, however; instead, it set up a legal framework that lets states regulate the procedure and timelines—ostensibly in the name of “protecting” your health and the viability of the fetus. In short, while your choice may be constitutionally protected, in the decades since Roe, anti-choice legislators have chipped away at abortion rights at the...
  The Contagious Diseases Act (here by shortened to the CD Act, because as important as it is…it’s one hell of a mouthful) came about in part due to the rapid rise of prostitution in Victorian England. Prostitution was the fourth largest occupation for working women* and it grew along with the boom of the British Empire.   This bombastic empire expansion led to thriving new trading routes and soon, British sailors were bringing home ships full of tea, textiles, and venereal disease. Yep, you have to take...

The word clitoris derives from the Greek word kleitoris which means “little hill”. For two millennia, we have thought that our most sensitive organ, which has no other purpose than to make us feel good, bears resemblance to a little hill. This, my friends, is depressing. Our clitoris is so much more than a little hill. Let me tell you how to find your clitoris, your whole clitoris. Cygnet is two and a half. I don’t remember when he first found his penis, but it feels...
We're bringing you this Q&A from the Sex Files in our March/April 2019 print issue, featuring advice from sexologist Dr. Carol Queen. My partner and I are interested in chastity play, but after a day or two the device slips off his genitalia. We’ve bought many devices and always find the same problem. Because he is a “grower,” the size of his penis can vary. Can you suggest a chastity device we can use for long-term play? –Locked Down and Loving It In order for you both...

  We're bringing you this Q&A from the Sex Files in our March/April 2019 print issue, featuring advice from sexologist Dr. Carol Queen. I can’t find any useful advice on how to best enjoy sex as a really thick-thighed individual. All I seem to hear is missionary, cowgirl, and doggy-style positions, and it’s hard to do doggy style when your partner’s dick is not long enough to compensate for the space your ass takes up. I don’t want to be limited to two positions, so what can...

  Any sex toy reviewer will tell you that the market is absolutely jam-packed with pricey new G-spot gadgets that are simply increasingly expensive variations on the same theme—which is why the new Bender from Unbound is actually remarkable. Priced at just $59, this slim pink silicon toy can be easily bent to stimulate your clit and G-spot simultaneously at whatever angle suits your anatomy best.  One of the hazards of experimenting with a new sensation like G-spotting is that not every toy is suitable for every body,...
