Newsweek writes tabloid worthy article on stem cells for erectile dysfunction

I will freely admit that professionally I am no penis expert, however, I know medical bullshit when I read it and that is why I am focusing on this let’s-turn-a-press-release-into-an article story from Newsweek. It caught my eye when this tweet scrolled through my feed. Pretty bold claim for a headline, so I assumed there must be … Continue reading

Can you pass a grade 8 sex ed test?

My two 14-year-old boys are finishing up their sex ed module today. As an OB/GYN I’m very impressed with the breadth of the subject matter. Their public middle school devoted four weeks of science classes to sexual education. I asked my kids if everything they learned made them more or less interested in sex. Obviously … Continue reading

No Addyi isn’t a good weight loss drug (it’s still not a good libido drug either)

It started when a doctor I had never met or heard of before sent me a message on Twitter wanting to partner up efforts to get the word out about Addyi (the drug flibanserin for women’s libido that essentially doesn’t work and is selling like a lead balloon).   First of all I was like, … Continue reading

Don’t Glitter Bomb Your Vagina

Lots of people love glitter and while cosmetic grade glitter seems safe enough for a variety of makeup applications some enterprising person who goes by Madam.Butterflie on Instagram is packaging it up as vaginal “Passion Dust”. Because it is 2017 and this is where we are. Why would a woman want to do this you ask? … Continue reading

“Vaginal Kung Fu” could injure your vagina

Allure in their bid to out Goop Gwyneth Paltrow in our post-jade egg society asks if “Vaginal Kung Fu” is the secret to better sex?   By vagina Allure and I mean pelvic floor muscles (the muscles that wrap around the vagina). I am an expert in these muscles. I treat pelvic floor muscle conditions every single … Continue reading

Fresh off the roaring success of their harmful yet expensive vaginal jade eggs Paltrow and her flock at GOOP have hatched limited edition vaginal Easter eggs. They are sure to hop off the shelves so don’t delay. Can’t choose between jaunty jaune or robin blue? Just ask yourself what would the High Priestess of Worried … Continue reading

My Sweet V claims they can make your vagina smell sensual for $29.99. Just no.

There are seemingly endless ways to hack the vagina for cash. This week’s installment of vagina-cash-grab is a product called My Sweet V. The company claims their product can boost your libido and give your vagina a semi-fruity taste and a sensual smell. You know, to empower women because nothing says I’m a woman, hear me … Continue reading

Freezing your genitals at a spa will give you frostbite not better sex

The good people of Twitter alerted me today to the concept of recreational genital cryotherapy. Cryotherapy, for those who may not know, is freezing tissue for medical benefit. The spa, because that’s EXACTLY the place you would want someone to freeze your vulva or scrotum or wherever is at the The Ainscow Hotel in Manchester, … Continue reading

GOOP gaslights women re: vaginal jade eggs claiming selling them is no endorsement!

The piece I wrote on why women shouldn’t put jade eggs in their vaginas, never mind wear them for extended periods of time, has caused quite a stir. There are major issues with the post on GOOP, which is not surprising as they did not interview a gynecologist or a pelvic floor physical therapist. My … Continue reading

It’s probably best if you don’t insert fruit and vegetables in your vagina

I was tagged on twitter by multiple people today because of a post on Cosmopolitan. The post is about an older thread on Reddit from a woman whose partner likes her to leave fruits and vegetables in her vagina all day for him to eat later during sex. This was apparently part of  the “whatever” this woman’s husband … Continue reading
