Feminist, Queer, Sex-Positive Reviews of Sex Toys and Sexual Health and Education--The Radical Notion that Sex Feels Good and Pleasure is Good for You

Apologies

I want to apologize for disappearing for a bit, but my life literally exploded (ok—not literally) in the past few weeks. I had final papers due, two of my pets died within a week of each other, and I was working about 14 hours a day between school and work. I hope, however, to have new posts up really soon! I’m working on one now :)

An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away. →

Orgasm is the sudden discharge of accumulated sexual tension resulting in rhythmic muscular contractions in the pelvic region that produce intensely pleasurable sensations followed by rapid relaxation. Orgasm is also in part a psychological experience of pleasure and abandon, when the mind is focused solely on the personal experience. It is sometimes called climaxing or coming. Sex is really fun, but did you know about the benefits of it? 

Orgasms can:

  1. Cut your risk of heart attack in half.
  2. Prevent cervical infections and helps relieve urinary tract infections.
  3. Lower your risk of type-2 diabetes.
  4. Cure you from insomnia.
  5. Relieves strength.
  6. Improves self-esteem.
  7. Helps us understand our partner.

Find out more facts about orgasms here.

I always feel weird posting about the health benefits of masturbation, sex, and orgasm because some people don’t like masturbation and sex and some people can’t orgasm but yeah here’s this info.

Neat!

Can we cuddle?

safeword:

julianplowden:

In just our underwear, so our skin can touch? Can I hold you while you wrap yourself around me? I’ll play with your hair and drag my fingertips across your skin. I’ll peck at your neck while you giggle and tell me to stop. We could whisper sweet things to each other over pillows that no one could hear. We’d just stare in each others eyes until a smile cracked the silence of our lips…..would you fall in love with me for the night? 

*sigh*

When the boy and I cuddle, I ALWAYS make him strip down to his underwear (and I do the same) so I can feel the heat of his skin against mine. Then I get as close as humanly possible and he drapes his arms and legs over me.

Question

Anonymous said: I feel like an asshole asking this, but is there a male version of this blog? Because your reviews and all are perfect, it's just that they wouldn't work biologically :(

I’m not sure, but my male partner will be writing some reviews, so stay tuned?

A handy dandy informational post clearing up common misconceptions on Gender, sex, and orientation (As modelled by the lovely deity Hermaphroditus)
A) Gender Identity is the one most often confused with sex. Sex is usually what you are thinking of when you think ‘gender’ but is more oft than not the wrong definition- see part C for further explanation of sex. Gender Identity is a lot more complicated and involves a number of things; primarily when looking at gender we look at cultural constructs and social ideas. Most people can name two; male and female. There is more than this however, a third gender in most societies -such as the Indian hijra or Samoan fa’afafine- and as many as ten in some cultures.
There are a lot of overlaps, as there are no official definitions of any genders and they are all defined individually by medical, psychological, and anthropological communities, and by gendered communities themselves.We do however have two main (In western societies, I can’t speak for any others) categories. That being Cisgender, a term for someone who’s gender matches their sex, and Transgender, an umbrella term for someone who’s gender does not match their sex. Some examples of transgender identities are transgender, pansgender and androgyne.
B) Sexual Orientation is not determined by gender (But more on that later). Sexual orientation is determined by the romantic and/or sexual feelings you may have towards other people. Again, the subject is not greatly researched which can lead to overlaps and slightly different definitions- but this doesn’t matter, because you don’t need someone else to define your sexual orienation, just like you don’t need someone to define your gender!
A couple of the more commonly recognised sexual orientations are:
Hetrosexual- Attraction to the opposite sex
Homosexual- Attraction to the same sex
Bisexual- Attraction to both sexes
Asexual- lack or near lack of sexual feelings (can still have romantic relationships and also identify as any of the other sexualities mentioned)
Pansexual-A sexual attraction regardless of sex/gender
There are many more, as well as subcategories that I have not included for the sake of time, but you get the idea. Lastly, back to the ‘not determined by gender’ idea- by this I mean that a crossdressing male (sex) is not necessarily transgender, or even non-hetorosexual. Similarly, a transgender female (sex) does not necessarily have a sexual attraction to the same sex. Aaand so on.
C) Sex has a two definitions as I understand it. There’s ‘coitus’, as in what you do with your partner(s), and then there is the sex defined by your genitalia.This is what most people are thinking of if they think of gender. There are three different types.
Male:

Female:

Intersex:
This category has a range of natural variations handily illustrated and explained over at The Intersex Roadshow, which I’d put here but would make this post far too long. I do reccomend you check it out. Noteably, the deity Hermaphroditus was sometimes considered to be intersex, however more oft than not he was depicted as having a female body with male genitalia. (Pointless but interesting)

And that, I believe, is all (*kind of) I have to say on the subject. I hope this is informative and helpful. [Note: Some information gained from here and here.]
