Upon first thought, phone sex may seem like a relic of the past thanks to the growing list of video-chat options: Skype, FaceTime, Snapchat, etc. But research shows auditory cues facilitate arousal, meaning it makes sense to keep the vintage-ish mode of communication in your rotation. So if you’re in an LDR or are simply looking to upgrade your sexting sessions, consider dusting off your phone’s primary function and dialing out for a sexy call.
I first learned about vabbing from an episode of the Secret Keepers Club podcast, hosted by two New York City-based comedians, Emma Willmann of My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Carly Aquilino of Girl Code. Though the term may seem like a misspelling of a certain dance move, it’s actually a bit more, um…salacious. Its official definition? Touching yourself, then dabbing your, ahem, essence behind your ears as perfume for attracting others. (Get it? Vagina + dabbing= vabbing.)
Have you ever found yourself wondering: WTF is a WOD? Or, overheard someone talking about Grace, Angie, and Helen—only to discover that they’re workouts…not women? Welp, if so, chances are you’ve encountered a CrossFit junkie. It’s not that surprising seeing as the global fitness community numbers in the millions and is only growing. Even if you’ve been hiding under a yoga mat for the last 20 years, you have probably at least heard about CrossFit.

If you’ve never given much thought to your sexuality and gender and how they shape your existence, it might be hard to understand how complicated, frustrating, and urgent it can feel to find a label that fits. But that was the case for me. In fact, after years of an affinity for the identifiers “lesbian” and “dyke,” I recently began identifying with the word “queer” because I like that it allows me to exist comfortably in a gray area.
Maybe you too identify as queer or have friends who do. Or maybe you’re still not sure what the heck the word means
If you’re looking for the perfect vibrator, you could scroll through Amazon’s 6,000+ options for sex toys—which can be pretty overwhelming. Or you could just go with the vibrators that earned five-star status from women who report the most sexual satisfaction.
Who are we talking about? Women who sleep with women.
If you've been craving sex that's better, longer-lasting, and more intimate—and let's be honest, who isn't—it might be time to try tantric sex. Tantrhuhh? "Tantric sex a slowed-down, awe-inspiring, super hot way of having sex," says tantra expert Barbara Carrellas, a certified sexologist and author of Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century.

Even if you actually are asking for a friend, some part of you is surely curious about whether or not a sexless relationship can be happy and healthy.

Look, my skin has never quite been awful. I do my best to wash my face within an hour of working out, always take my makeup off before bed, and change my pillowcase once a week. Though I don’t use any acne-fighting cleansers or spot treatment, I also couldn’t tell you the difference between serum and moisturizer.
If there's one thing the keto diet and bodybuilding have in common, it's that both require admirable levels of discipline. So it shouldn't be too surprising that there's a new wave of bodybuilders who are using the low-carb, high-fat lifestyle to build muscle without carbohydrates.
For those you who can't orgasm from penetrative sex alone—and research shows only 18 percent of women can—adding a vibrator can make the act a little more…satisfying. But even if you regularly visit O-town with your partner, your favorite toy could make it even more magical, stress-relieving, and pleasurable. (FYI, those are just some of the benefits of having an orgasm.)
It seems like many people are just about as confused about squirting as they are about why people feel the need to ghost each other. So, in the interest of filling in sex-knowledge gaps, pros are here to explain female ejaculation myths and facts: where it comes from, what it’s made of, and how to actually do it.
Launching inclusive products every month is something companies like Tinder could really take pride in
It’s Pride Month, but with all the brands launching limited-edition rainbow products and campaigns featuring vague “love is love” messaging, I’m not sure how you wouldn’t know that already. And like the true, queer introvert I am, I plan to celebrate by swiping through the eligible queer cuties in town for Pride from the comfort of my couch.
ICYMI, anal sex is the best thing since, well, regular sex. "Anal play can be enjoyable, even orgasmic, for people with vaginas," says Amy Boyajian, CEO and co-founder of Wild Flower, an online innovative sexual wellness and adult store.
