couple-holding-stop-sign-in-bed-298x232There’s nothing wrong with not being in the mood every now and then. Everyone’s libido fluctuates for a range of reasons. Hormonal changes, age, your menstrual cycles and even a heavy meal can make you feel more passion for Netflix than your partner. But if you find that it’s a persistent problem, or if it starts to affect your relationship, it’s important to take the downturn seriously.

6360066637797924901085796701_500x500Despite the recent rise in Box Office popularity, there are a still lot of misconceptions out there about BDSM. In the media, it’s often portrayed as high-risk and those who practice it are viewed as disturbed, troubled or damaged in some way (Think Christian Grey screaming “I’m 50 shades of fucked up” and you’ll get the picture). Not so long ago, participation in fetishism and sadomasochism was actually considered a mental disorder by health professionals.  Continue Reading

Before, the only way you were seeing any porn action is if you stumbled across a parent or older sibling’s stash of dirty magazines or snuck into a smut film.

I was listening to one of your podcasts and was really surprised to hear you advise against the pull-out method. I’ve been using it for most of my sex life and have never had any problems. Same goes for my boyfriend and plenty of my friends! My guy doesn’t like using condoms, so that’s always been our go-to, and I’ve read it’s 96 percent effective. So what’s the deal?

And as awkward and uncomfortable (literally) as STIs can be, living with one that is undiagnosed is infinitely worse. Continue Reading
