In honor of Adult Sex-Ed Month, this show is focused on expanding your sexual health knowledge. Emily gives a crash course on STD’s and STI’s, from causes to symptoms to the importance of keeping yourself protected.
The month of June signifies a slew of special occasions. It marks the start of swimsuit season, reminds us all to appreciate our fathers, and signifies the beginning of summer vacation. But just because June brings about the end of the school year doesn’t mean our education has to stop with it. In fact, the month of June is actually Adult Sex Ed Month (thanks to sex educator and writer Bobbie Morgan)! You might be thinking Adult Sex Ed? We should all have that stuff figured out by the time we reach adulthood right? Well, unfortunately, this just isn’t the case. Continue Reading
On June 3rd, a rape victim shared the harrowing story of her assault in an open letter to her rapist. In her statement, she revealed details of her treatment following the vicious attack, the additional trauma she experienced during the trial and her utter dismay at the judge’s light sentencing—The attacker was convicted of 3 felonies, but was only sentenced to a mere 6 months in a county jail.
This horrifying event brought many issues to light: The harmful effects of privilege in our justice system, the shameful treatment of assault victims and the ever-growing epidemic of sexual violence on college campuses. Continue Reading
Along with many of fun activities of our youth, like wine coolers and ice blocking, some of us have lost our enthusiasm for the good old fashion make out. Gone are the days of stolen smooches in the hallway, marathon make outs in the back row of the movie theater and full-contact kisses that send shivers down your spine. We remember the thrill of the activity itself, but kissing often falls by the wayside after you’re in a relationship.
In case you haven’t heard, May is National Masturbation Month! That doesn’t mean that there’s now a perfect excuse to ditch work, buy an extra pack of batteries, and spend the whole month in bed (although there’s nothing wrong with taking a “personal” day once and awhile). No, the true spirit of Masturbation Month goes much deeper…
Happy Masturbation Month!

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
We’re almost halfway through 2016, and it’s likely many of our New Year’s resolutions have fallen into the back of our minds. But there’s one resolution that Emily has kept up with and the results have been amazing! Continue Reading
I knew the minute he told me that it was bullshit. I knew 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
