Consent. A seemingly simple concept that, for many reasons, is largely misunderstood. How can something as easy as a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer be so misconstrued, so often? Contrary to popular belief, ignorance is not always bliss. You may think you know when there’s consent, but unless you’re 100 percent on the same page as your potential sexual partner, the actual act of sex with them remains strictly a possibility.

The new year is always a good time to evaluate who you’ve become and who you want to be. We get a clean slate to make new goals and do the things we’ve been procrastinating for far too long. Maybe this is the year that you finally ask your girlfriend to move in, get out of that toxic relationship or stop drinking every Taco Tuesday away. Truly, anything is possible… Well, sort of.
It’s no secret that the majority of resolutions get dropped after a couple of months, never to be picked up again. Many people will give up, accepting that it’s just not going to happen, but did you ever stop to think that maybe the problem is actually the goals we’re setting for ourselves? Continue Reading
We talk A LOT about issues surrounding the female sex drive, but we rarely discuss what it’s like for the person in the passenger seat. On today’s show, we’re unpacking this topic of low libido from a different angle and we’ve got Dr. Ian Kerner on the line to help provide a little insight.
In the past year, I have been on a mission to have regular orgasms and since I’m currently single, this has been mostly a solo mission. I’ve been taking all of your advice: I’ve got the sex toys and the lube, I know where all my hot spots are and I know how to touch them, but I’m still only orgasming a third of the time. It’s so frustrating! Sometimes I will be right on the cusp of climaxing, but for some reason I just can’t get all the way there. What am I missing here? Help!
I was born this way. When I was four, before I even knew what sex was, I used to masturbate to fantasies of being kidnapped and enslaved. I remember feeling confused and ashamed about my fantasies, but I couldn’t resist indulging them while rubbing my clitoris with a beanie baby. The result was too delicious.
This would become my deepest darkest secret that I would never reveal at sleepovers, that I would never even write in my diaries because I did not want to face how fucked-up I was. Something was deeply and fundamentally wrong with me, and I would sporadically try to “quit” my fantasy-ridden masturbation sessions, much like a drug addict still clinging to the ever-dwindling hope of recovery.

It’s one thing to talk about taking the “freak” out of freaky sex. We can understand the importance of embracing all forms of sexual exploration and expression. We can take a look at our own fantasies and even work on feeling comfortable expressing them. But just like many of the lessons we learn in life, from Reaganomics to Trigonometry, some theories just aren’t as easy to put into practice.
We all want to believe that we will be cool when someone we’re being intimate with makes a unprecedentedly kinky request. We want to think that we’ll react gracefully, that we will go into it with an open mind and come away with a better understanding of human sexuality as a whole. That’s exactly what happened for one mystery woman—let’s call her Jane—when her golden rule “Try everything once” led her into her first ever golden shower experience…
