My Mom Used Pancakes to Teach Me About Sex

When I was nine, my Mother showed me a video in which a mother created a uterus and ovaries out of pancake batter to show her friend's daughter how menstruation worked. Some of you may be weirded out by this, others of you will have a vague memory of the video and rest of you will be shocked at how many hits come back when you Google "pancake batter menstruation video." (Evidently, lots of people have fond memories of that video.)...more

Is BDSM crazy?

In mainstream society BDSM has an air of craziness to it, it appears extreme in many ways and people who do not know anything about it assume that it is all about whips, chains, leather, latex and dark dungeons – and it certainly can be about that, but as I have come to discover over the last couple of years, there is so much more to it. It is an incredibly varied and interesting world that lets you free yourself from unnecessary and maybe even unhealthy thought patterns that have been instilled into you from the day you were born....more

Citizens ‘Caine: The Truth about Delay Creams

Benzocaine and lidocaine are both topical anesthetics used by dentists (just like dental dams!) to numb the mouth during procedures.

I Am French But I Am Not A Libertine

It is sometimes said that the French invented libertinage. But have they really? The subtle, but powerful effects of cultural stereotypes and prejudices of people based on their race, ethnicity, nationality or religion are being now very appropriately recognised and highlighted in our society. In spite of this, such stereotypes remain a powerful source of phantasm. And yes, most people believe that not only we French have invented libertinage, but also that all of French society indulges in such a practice. Nothing could be further from the truth. So imagine my surprise when, in London and after a pint or two down the pub, I keep being asked about extra-marital affairs and managing to separate sex and love. What is going on? I am just a wife, mother and colleague who happen to have crossed the Channel to keep the family together. But nobody wants to hear it. Of course not: it is much funnier to imagine that all French women are sex goddesses turning a blind eye on their husbands’ indiscretions. It used to make me laugh. Now I am not so sure. I just nod and smile. I know that some battles can’t be won. ...more

Rape Fantasies After a Sexual Assault?!

It was summer -  I remember the sound of the cicadas. I remember a feeling of desperate panic, and a very sudden realization that there was absolutely nothing I could do.His penis didn't enter my vagina, so it wasn't called rape.  It was called an "unfortunate situation", and a few people whispered about underage drinking and its unintended consequences....more

My First Time

| by K. N. |I knew I wanted to have sex with Charles before I even met him. I didn’t know how old he was, what he looked like, if he would ever make me laugh.I just knew, as only a passionately political 22-year old could, that I wanted to know this man, to be part of his story, to be more connected with him than I ever had anyone else....more
