Pansexuality has its own treasure trove of difficulties. People often (wrongly) view pansexuals as confused, greedy, or going through a phase. People think they will one day emerge identifying as gay or lesbian.
These rumors are untrue and harmful, but they persist nonetheless. I wrote a whole article about the intricacies of Pansexuality and Bisexuality here. But being pan and identifying as a man? Whoa, brother. That’s another set of difficulties. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s begin!

No one plans to encounter illness. It’s very common for the healthiest relationships to ebb and flow with the highs and lows of life.
But for some couples, getting struck with a sudden and unexpected illness results in challenges you simply can’t prepare for, and it can leave both partners feeling powerless and resentful taking a toll on your connection.

I’m a big fan of masturbation.
It’s something I’ve done since I was a teenager, and feel like I’ve always had a pretty healthy outlook on what it brings to both the self-care and partnered sex arenas.

To help commemorate the fabulous occasion in history as well as essence, here’s a Pride Month Medley of our top Pride-themed blogs and podcasts.
Because, while June gloom may be in full swing, not even that can rain on our parade—our Pride parade, to be exact!
It’s the annual time of year specially dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and their monumental quest for equality.
While the parades, parties, and campaigns have come to be a large part of the celebration as we know it today, there’s a whole lot more to it than just that.
Usually, personality types are an ignored aspect of romantic relationships.
It’s common to think that in an ideal world, all partners in a relationship would have similar personality types.
The thinking being that similar personality types will make for a compatible and harmonious relationship. However, that’s a very limited and often inaccurate view.
The truth is that any personality types can be compatible, no matter how different. In order to be successful though, some tools are required. Here is a crash course.

There’s a lot to get hung up on when traversing the world of sex.
However, if there’s one thing that takes the cake, it’s how to navigate the mystery of mismatched libidos.

Some are naturally high, some are low, but either way, it’s important to know there’s a lot that affects and goes into managing it.
To help get to the bottom of this and more, we’re happy to present a mashup of our favorite blogs and podcasts that can help guide you on the journey.
