When a professional dominatrix 
decides to start a family, her life 
changes in ways she never expected By Yin Q.Illustration by Marianna Tomaselli My husband kneels by my bedside, his nose to the floor with his hands stretched out in a yogic “Child’s Pose.” I enter the room to stand at the crown of his head and he moves to press his lips to my boots. I pull a soft leather hood over his face and Robert disappears. His body is the one I lie next to...

From riding greased-up broomsticks to weaving seduction spells, the secret sex lives of witches are the stuff both wet dreams and nightmares are made of By Kristen J. Sollee Sex is the X factor in witchcraft. Both serious practitioners and characters in witchy lore are known for their abilities to unleash primal desires. Witches use sexual energy to commune, to manifest, to make magic, and—in the case of the Medieval hags described in the 1486 witch-hunting bible the Malleus Maleficarum—even to steal penises. For millennia, sex magic...

  Dav Savage has come out with a new podcast Hot Mic, a curated, hand-selected, show made up of sex-positive tell-all stories and interviews. Like his advice column and podcast, Savage Love, Hot Mic contains Dan's tough love interjections and moments of truth. I got a chance to talk about what made Dan Savage one of the 21st centuries leading sex positive writers. What were the dinner conversations in your family? And what was that environment for you? Well, my parents were both raised in homes where children were meant to...
Recently, while researching, I came across a “Spinster’s Numeration Table” printed in the 1837 edition of the New Monthly Magazine. This table lists out the various ages of an unmarried woman and corresponds them to certain characteristics. It is meant to be humorous, but—as with all humor of this sort—there is a grain of historical truth to be gleaned from the descriptions. The table gives us insight into how spinsters were viewed and at what age unmarried women were deemed to be past their prime. According...
We're bringing you this Q&A from BUST's Sex section, featuring advice from sexlogist Dr. Carol Queen.   I have trouble reaching orgasm unless my bladder is full. There are nerves that just don’t get stimulated any other way. G-spot stimulation helps me get there, but feels like nothing without that added pressure. I’m in my 40s and have been too embarrassed to ask anyone this question ever, even though I’m super comfortable talking about sex and masturbation in general. (I even took Betty Dodson’s Bodysex seminar and didn’t...
  The history of contraceptives has been a very interesting topic to research — honestly, there isn’t much people haven’t put in or on their genitals to do whatever they can to not produce a tiny, screaming human… Now I shouldn’t HAVE to say this, BUT here goes… DO NOT TRY ANY OF THESE ON YOURSELF AT HOME! DO NOT TRY THEM ON A PARTNER! JUST SAY NO! OK? Trust us! THE EGYPTIAN METHOD This ancient (and we mean ancient, like 1800 B.C) method of contraception brought together the appetising...

  We're bringing you this Q&A from BUST's Sex section, featuring advice from sexlogist Dr. Carol Queen.   Question: I find it difficult to masturbate when I’m not feeling sexy, which is usually relegated to when I’m dating and/or having sex with other people. Porn helps, but I’d like a more mindful experience. And, being mindful can bring about painful feelings about being alone, which bums me out too much to get off! I’m on SSRIs, but I don’t have trouble coming with other people, and I can...

  I’ve never really adored taking pictures of myself. Something is always “off” and not quite profile pic worthy. My smile is crooked. A glob of food is lodged between my front teeth. (Eww.) "Bedhead" is a generous term for what my hair displays more days. And my skin. Oh, let’s not even go there… Then, one late night while visiting my hometown of Defiance, Ohio for the filming of a television show about my late mother, I sat cross-legged on the bed in the guest room of my aunt’s house...

How often do you orgasm with a partner? Your answer to that question will probably vary, depending on who you are and who your partner is. New science suggests that if you are a straight, cisgender woman in a relationship with a straight, cisgender man, you are in the group of people who are least likely to reach orgasm with a partner. Bisexual women orgasm more often, and lesbian women reach orgasm even more often. Men, including gay men, are more likely to reach orgasm than...
