Orgasms: the climactic point of our sexual bouts, the light at the end of the tunnel, the eruption of pleasure that releases euphoric brain chemicals into our entire bodies.
While they do not necessarily have to be the goal every time we have sex, a life without them just doesn’t seem as fulfilling.
There are so many times in our lives where an idea seems to fall out of the sky, hitting us on the head, making us wonder how we’ve never thought of it before. Much like the apple falling on top of Isaac Newton, discovering gravity.
When it comes to sex, everyone does it differently and we all have different definitions for it. Even though many fall into a routine of how it all goes down, there are so many different ways to enjoy sex and what it has to offer. That’s what makes it fun!
Here at SWE, Emily is always talking about how important pelvic floor health is – for everyone.
From making your orgasms more frequent, stronger, and longer, to getting rid of those annoying “sneeze & pee” incidents, to actually keeping certain organs in place – having a strong pelvic floor means A LOT for your body.

When it comes to history, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality – unless you’re taking a specific college course. In fact, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality at all.
While it’s obvious that things change and progress over centuries (we aren’t exactly using carrier pigeons anymore), some stuff seems to have gone… backwards.
Sex toys and pleasure products still remain a controversial topic. Some people are completely turned off and intimidated by the idea because they think using such technology is unnatural or somehow a criticism on their own skills in the bedroom.
Others are totally in favor of anything sex toy related. So much so, they don’t even see using a Magic Wand during sex as kinky.
The human body is pretty extraordinary. All of its systems working together to keep us alive, trying their best to keep us healthy (even with all the shit we put in our bodies), all so we can continue to delve into the pleasures, pains, and mysteries the world has to offer us.
One of the most complex of these systems is the reproductive – and while scientifically it is for, well, reproduction, it does oh, so much more.
Relationships are changing, society is changing (however slow the progress may be), and so is the way we think about sex. Our old definitions are limiting.
So, if our definitions of sex are evolving, then what does that mean for virginity?
The “friend zone.” We’ve all heard of it, and some claim to have been there (although it’s existence is debatable). The connotation remains at a negative.
What is the “friend zone,” really? It should be an awesome hangout spot for you and your buddies to go – equipped with a bar, arcade games, and maybe a trampoline (a girl can dream, right?) – but it’s not.
