Where would so many of us be without birth control? Starting a family long before we were ready? Terrified of sex before we met “the one,” which for some could result in 40-year-old virgin status? Or, would we be one of the few lucky ones who never misses a period?

Unfortunately for millions of women around the world, these situations are very real. They are never taught about “family planning” and contraception, they don’t have access to it, and for some, it’s too expensive.  

Thankfully, there are people out there that understand birth control is something all women should be entitled to having. The people at Bedsider.org started a campaign called #THXBirthControl – designed to break down the archaic stigmas attached to contraception and help teens and young women find the right method for them.

Penises may have a generally easier time getting off without a hitch, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want a little extra sensation from time to time.

In the last few years especially, sex tech has grown above and beyond what anyone would have imagined. Slowly coming into the mainstream because people are starting to bury the same that goes along with pleasure, companies are trying to outdo themselves at every turn. All in the name of pleasure.

A truly beautiful thing.

When you’re used to not showing emotions, it can be hard to deal with when you actually have them.

I’m not talking about general excitement, happiness, sarcasm, or clear annoyance. No, I’m talking about real, deep emotions. Ones like love, empathy, longing, and disappointment in someone close to you.

 

These feelings already aren’t the easiest to talk about (in a healthy way, at least), but when you’re not used to having them at all –– it’s almost impossible.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen just how much the world of dating has changed. While we were once limited to the city limits of our hometown and the heteronormative stigmas of finding partners and abhorrence of casual sex – we find ourselves in a new era.

An era of dating apps, acceptance of all kinds of love (although we have a long way to go), and finally breaking away from the bounds of monogamy.
