Coitus During Menses, or Sex On The Rag. I know plenty of women, and men, avoid this time of the month like the plague. I am not advocating 'for' or 'against' as this is such a personal matter, but a little information may help some of you, so let's start with some basics, for men & women.
On this episode of Reality Cast, I interview Jill Filipovic about the potential end of most abortion access in the South. I also discuss terrorism and the assassination of Dr. George Tiller five years ago. Plus, it’s summertime, which means freaking out about sex education season is here!

Loneliness leads to health problems: higher rises in morning levels of the stress hormone cortisol, altered gene expression in immune cells, poorer immune function, higher blood pressure and an increased level of depression. Loneliness also is related to difficulty getting a deep sleep as well as a faster progression of diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Those things alone can affect a man’s ability to become aroused.

The Supreme Court's historic Griswold v. Connecticut decision may have legalized contraception use between married couples, but with the Hobby Lobby case, the Roberts Court is poised to take us one giant step backward.
An antipornography campaign in China has netted many young female writers of danmei, erotic fiction focusing on relationships between gay men, a popular outlet for those seeking to escape stifling social identities, scholars say.
...Danmei is part of an ‘‘ongoing sexual revolution’’ with feminist characteristics in China, perhaps the country’s first, said a Chinese academic who requested anonymity. China is currently undergoing a crackdown on pornography that has netted danmei writers and website managers, and closed some sites, sexual rights advocates said. ‘‘The campaign is really having an impact,’’ the researcher said.
Creating and consuming danmei is a way for women to explore their long-repressed sexuality, said Ms. Jacobs.
