Though the numbers are actively decreasing, HIV is still something to be informed and aware of. According to HIV.gov, “more than 1.1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV today.

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.

Attention! Fall fashion is well underway from the iconic perennial September Issue of Vogue to the mélange of NYFF posts populating your Instagram. The hottest looks, newest trends and most dare-to-bare styles are in the air. One of the sexiest new looks cropping up is pubic hair.
That’s right– it’s back! But it’s not as simple as the old school porn star look. In fact, the new pubic trends are incredibly nuanced and highly influenced by a myriad of trends throughout the ages.
With summer soon a thing of the past and all things pumpkin spice on the horizon, we say goodbye to warm weather staples like barbecues, pool hangs and exploring the open road. Even though this year’s sunny season has come to a close, the good news is not all road trips have to be kissed goodbye!
