I recall vividly being asked during the exam if I wanted to see my cervix. I was aghast. But then, as now, I opted to handle the awkwardness with a witty retort. Instead of simply saying, “No, thanks,” I said, “I think if I was supposed to see that, I’d have mirrors on the end of my fingertips.”I’m sure my blushing said more than my words; but in any case, she left it at that.
I’ve matured a lot since then. But I’ve still no desire to see inside my genitalia. To me, that’s about as sexy as seeing inside a man’s urethra. Let’s leave a little mystery, OK? However, Svakom, a Chinese company, has other ideas…

With the sheer amount of freely available erotic stories online and the relative ease of modern self-publishing, it is only a matter of time before we find more erotic literature finding its way to the bookstores and our own personal bookshelves. London, England UK - July 17, 2014 /PressCable/ — Erotic literature has been a popular genre amongst (mostly) female readers for many years. However, the recent explosion of the Fifty Shades trilogy and the S.E.C.R.E.T erotica series onto the scene has created many more avid fans of provocative romance. This truth is clearly reflected by the large increase in the number of people trying to achieve success through writing and publishing erotic novels.

In a country with conflicted attitudes about its sexy reputation, workers speculate that men spent too much money on tickets or the high cost of living...
“They think that because of Carnaval, bikinis and the tiny clothes we wear.” That’s what women are supposed to be like here, added Ms. Vasconcelos. “But then men say, ‘there are no good women any more, there are no women you can marry,’ ” because the sexy image women feel compelled to present is also considered tainted.
The sociologist Marlene Teixeira Rodrigues, an expert on gender and prostitution at the University of Brasilia, calls it the “daily hell” of Brazilian women. “You’re thought of as accessible – women in all social classes, races, and generations, in every way,” she said.
Yesterday, Vice introduced its readers to “Auntie Angel” by way of an exclusive interview with the sexpert and blowjob aficionado, and we were mesmerized. Auntie Angel’s having a moment right now thanks to her new internet video “Angel Teaching Her Grapefruit Technique”, which went
When engraving her new iPad, Justyn Hintze noticed that clit and vagina are considered inappropriate words while penis and dick are not. This may not seem like a big deal, but it represents one of feminism's more important fights.
To a casual observer, WHO’s new stance on HIV-preventing drugs (or PrEP) might look like a perpetuation of noxious anti-gay stereotypes. But whatever image problem widespread PrEP use might create is dwarfed by the HIV problem that currently plagues the gay community. HIV is, quite simply, homophobic: The risk of transmission from anal sex is 18 times higher than from vaginal penetration, and condoms break more easily during anal sex than vaginal intercourse. Combine these facts with a clearly irreversible trend toward unprotected sex among gay and bi men, and you have a better picture of the impending crisis that WHO is trying to mitigate.
This bleak picture explains why WHO and the CDC recommend PrEP for traditionally “at-risk” men—i.e., men who have sex with men without consistently using condoms. But why is WHO going a step further and advocating PrEP even for those gay and bi men who do everything right? Here, I have a rather depressing insight to offer. Since I started covering PrEP and Truvada at the beginning of this year, I’ve received messages every few weeks from gay men who ask their doctor for a prescription—and are turned down. Invariably, these men use condoms but would prefer to have a backup plan. And invariably their doctors scold them and refuse to write them a prescription.
"To prevent the immense evils of self-pollution, therefore, in our boys and students ... They should always subsist on a plain, simple, unstimulating, vegetable, and water diet; and care should be taken that they do not eat too fast, and are not excessive, in quantity. They should never be kept too long a time in a sitting, confined, or inactive posture. They should never sleep on feathers." —Sylvester Graham, Lectures on Chastity (1834)
America's recent experience with abstinence-only sex education is merely the latest chapter in our long, sometimes ridiculous (to modern eyes, anyway) history of efforts to control humankind's most basic drive.
The excellent Billion Wicked Thoughts has given us yet another tidbit of interesting info: women enjoy the same sort of porn that men like; feminist porn, while not bad, isn't necessarily what porn-liking women are interested in. Note that the percent of porn-liking women is small, so I offer a slightly different interpretation
