Madonna’s vagina selfie that wasn’t (or a lesson in ageism for woman)

While reading some news articles for a future post I chanced upon a pure click bait link: Madonna’s vagina selfie While normally I dismiss those things and move along with a nothing-here-for-you-to-see attitude, I just had to click. Partly because I love Madonna and partly because I really wondered exactly what she posted.  After all, … Continue reading

Would you take a pill every day to have sex once more each month?

Lack of sexual desire is one of the most common sexual problems for women. While men who have sexual dysfunction issues (low libido or erectile dysfunction) have big Pharma to turn to, women do not. In 2010 Boehringer submitted an application to get their “women’s Viagra,” flibanserin, approved and were denied. The FDA cited efficacy … Continue reading

Cosmo suggests sex against a washing machine to pleasure your man

Sex against the washing machine (the slyly named Mover and Shaker) is one of Cosmo’s sex positions that they recently tweeted with that cheeky #CosmoAfterDark. It’s rated a 3 out of 5 on the well-validated 5 flame carnal challenge scale, because leaning against something is apparently slightly more than moderately difficult. However, what caught my eye … Continue reading

Jimmy Choo wants to steal your orgasm and other sex fallacies from Time magazine

I was just about to go to bed when I saw Time magazine’s list of 12 Shocking Sex Facts and so I thought, well, maybe Time know’s something I don’t. However, what followed was perhaps the worst piece of what-the-fuck-drivel that made every sex lists that I’ve ever read in Cosmo and O Magazine seem … Continue reading

Is Osphena the new wonder drug for better sex?

Osphena (ospemifene) is an oral medication recently approved by the FDA for painful sex (dyspareunia) due to vaginal dryness for menopausal women. As typically happens when a new drug gets FDA approval the PR machine for the company goes into overdrive flooding the media with press releases. Since sex sells, well, Osphena received a fair amount … Continue reading

6 reasons why Plan B should be available without an ID

The Food and Drug Administration just cleared Plan B for women ages 15 and up. Not only did the age limit get lowered, Plan B and its generic equivalents will be on the shelves with all the other over the counter medications. The caveat, you need ID. While I applaud the lowering the age limit … Continue reading

What to tell a partner who wants you to remove your pubic hair

A divorced friend of mine who recently started dating was shocked to find that the complete absence of female pubic hair seemed to be an expectation among her potential partners. I’m not surprised, when I was in the dating pool a couple of years back there were men who actually listed full clamscaping required among … Continue reading

When sex hurts after having a baby (and it didn’t before)

A new study published in the BJOG indicates that by 6 weeks after a delivery 41% of women have resumed sex, 78% by 12 weeks, and 94% by 6 months. Most health care providers recommend waiting 4-6 weeks after an uncomplicated vaginal delivery before resuming sex, the issue being an open cervix could increase the … Continue reading

Stop talking about the non contraceptive benefits of birth control and start talking about sex

I have a copper IUD. It serves one purpose, to prevent pregnancy. My boyfriend had a vasectomy, a procedure that has no health benefits beyond preventing pregnancy. I am proud of these decisions because A) we both don’t want me to get pregnant and B) we both like sex. These should be reasons enough to … Continue reading

20% of kids in grade 9 have had oral sex or why your pre-teen should be vaccinated against HPV

Initiating the vaccine series for the human papilloma virus (HPV) by age 11 or 12 is recommended, although many parents balk at a vaccine to prevent a sexually transmitted virus at this tenderly perceived age because, “12 year olds shouldn’t be having sex” or better yet, “My 12-year-old won’t be having sex.” (Just to recap, HPV … Continue reading
