On today’s show, Emily sits down with actor Scott Eastwood to talk about everything from who taught him about sex to turn offs to pheromones.
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.
Happy Steak and Blowjob Day! I like to joke that there’s no problem oral sex can’t solve, but (tragically) that’s not always the case. On today’s podcast, Emily tackles some of those love and sex questions that are hard to ask and don’t always come with an easy answer.
Should you pursue Round 2 with an ex-one night stand? Are you sick and tired of pulling out? What’s the best way to bring up backdoor play with a hesitant partner? Emily and Anderson offer good news for some, reality checks for others, and plenty of sage advice to help listeners in their sexual time of need. Continue Reading
I am happy to announce that I have finally found THE ONE. I have to admit, it was rough going for a while. After my rocky history of incompatible pairings and utter disappointments, I often wondered if I would ever find my match, my perfect fit, the one that could keep up with my busy lifestyle and still make me feel happy and safe. I was sick of putting myself out there, time and time again, always starting off so full of hope, but ending up left with a roller coaster of emotions, physical pain and even the occasional rash.
But all of that is behind me now, because I am 2 years into the most successful relationship I have ever been in. We had a few bumps along the way, but I have never felt so safe, so free or so sure of anything in my life. No, I am not talking about my boyfriend (although he and I are doing great, thanks for asking!) I am talking about my current form of birth control. Continue Reading
Finding the right birth control method isn’t a blind choice, nor is there an exact formula for contraceptive success. The most popular methods might work for some, but definitely not all. Your body ultimately decides which method works for you. So, where do you start?
If you’re sexually active, there’s a good chance you’ve heard these dreaded four little words:
“You should get tested.”
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are definitely the LAST things you want to be thinking about when getting hot and heavy, whether it comes up pre-or post-play. But with 110 million Americans infected at any given time, chances are you’ve felt that pang, knowing something isn’t quite right down there. And as awkward and uncomfortable (literally) as STIs can be, living with one that is undiagnosed is infinitely worse. Continue Reading
This show is all about sexual etiquette! What does it really take to be a considerate lover? Continue Reading
Today is the day to celebrate women, our achievements, and ponder on what is left to accomplish. Despite the fact that women became “liberated” in the 1960’s, we still face an overwhelming taboo when it comes to sex. Even now, the enjoyment and open discussion of sex tends to be associated with either “confident” men or “slutty” women, which is just not right. So with this taboo in mind, I thought it would be fun and interesting to use this momentous day to talk about a few the female pioneers of sex – The women who brought us a little bit closer to sexual wellness and freedom!
