Presenting the Bloody Mask of Supple Skin

Sex by Numbers: Modesty is the New Sexy

ColumnExcess is an unsustainable path, leaving little to the imagination. Modesty doesn’t necessarily mean donning a chastity belt, but it certainly means keeping your legs firmly crossed if you’re wearing a skirt. Moderation doesn’t mean giving up alcohol to spend every evening reading Gertrude Stein while cuddling your pet cat, […]

Is Pulling Out a Safe Method of Contraception? Sexual Healing

15 of Our Fave Beauty Products Under $15

Yes, we love our green beauty. What we don’t love? Paying $120 for a bottle of rose-infused night cream crafted by the organic-mittened kittens of Costa Rica.

How to Orgasm Every Single Time

It’s not rocket science, but learning how to orgasm regularly, makes all the difference. Some of my most vivid memories of sex, especially early in my erotic life, are not of the satisfying post-coitus elated release, but their opposite. Rather, it was the myriad times when I was still learning […]

Getting the Sexual Satisfaction You Want: No More Shame
