Have you ever flicked the bean or polished the pole but barely limped to the finish line, or even quit the race halfway through? The truth is, not all masturbation is created equal. Luckily, the key to successful self-pleasure is totally in your hands. It all starts with getting into the right mindset.
Masturbation is as much a mental game as it is a physical one. So as we come to the close of Masturbation May, here are some tips to get your head in the right space for self-pleasure.
Recently, I was on a Zoom call for a class on vulnerability. The facilitator asked us what we are doing during this pandemic to improve an area of our lives. I realized that my answer was unique: I have been working on strengthening my pelvic floor.
You may not realize, but exercising your pelvic floor is something you can do for yourself during this stressful time. All genders benefit from strengthening this area, as it affects your health in a variety of ways.
A strong pelvic floor can help support female organs, as well as the bladder. It may help prevent UTIs – which can get in the way of pain-free sex. Even better, a strong pelvic floor may help support a better sex life, affording better orgasms and increased genital sensitivity.
If you have a penis, a stronger pelvic floor can help with better range of motion for thrusting, and allow you to ejaculate further and with more control! Woohoo!
Let’s get into two ways you can strengthen your pelvic floor.

Although many of us are still on the rollercoaster of quarantine, it doesn’t change the fact that April is STD Awareness Month!
With plenty of other things to worry about right now, STDs are the last thing we want in the mix. But staying in the know, and on top of your own testing can makes a world of difference to your sexual health.
So to kickstart the not-so-glam, yet ever-important conversation! Here’s a mix of our top STD/STI blogs and podcasts.
The vagina. A sex organ. A woman’s genitalia. It is one of the very few things in existence that garners universal obsession of the masses. Its reputation is unmatched in its complexity.
Some regard it as the holy grail of every prepubescent male. Some seek its amity for the entirety of their lives. Others call it the Rubick’s cube of life.
It is the tunnel traveled by new life at birth. A ubiquitous symbol of strength and femininity. It is the anatomical emblem for women across the world. Beautiful, mysterious, pleasurable and perfect.
There are many things the vagina IS. But lest we forget, let us remind ourselves, there are many more things the vagina is NOT:
April is STD/STI awareness month! Safe sex is so important to staying healthy and protecting yourself. You already know that (hopefully).
What you may not know is that, according to the American Sexual Health Association, one in two sexually active people will contract a sexually transmitted disease by the age of 25. If you don’t have an STD (or have never had one), chances are the person sitting next to you does or has at one point.
Although it feels great, there’s no denying that sex isn’t always the cleanest act. And with everyone’s germ-awareness at a heightened state, it’s probably a good time for a brush up on sexual hygiene.
You get sweaty, are dealing with bodily fluids, and sometimes you have the rest of a day to jump into afterward!
Which means no matter what your relationship status is, staying on top of your intimate hygiene isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a requirement.
Given the current times, staying healthy has never been more important. But in addition to making your doctor proud, optimal health can give your sex life a boost while at it!
By now we all should know that certain aspects of wellness have a direct impact on sexual performance.
So in an effort to keep both your body and your sex life in tip-top shape, here are some of the biggest physical factors to help hack your way to better intimacy:
Once upon a time I had a boyfriend who told me I was loose…
I knew the minute he told me that it was bullshit. His opinion was wrong. I had learned enough about the female anatomy to know, logically, that my vagina was totally normal.
No previous partner had ever made mention of my pussy being anything but a wonderful and satisfying place to be. I took care of it, I loved it, I even named her Tallulah Belle! Still, despite my better judgement, his uninformed opinion about the narrowness of my vaginal canal affected me profoundly. Continue Reading
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. One in seven of them don’t know it.” Once known as a death sentence, it is now possible to live a fully sexual life without fear of passing HIV to your partner.
