A self-motivated, SEO-savvy wellness writer, I've written over 1,000 articles on fitness, health, and wellness for brands like Livestrong, Well & Good, Cosmo, Health, Women's Health, and more.
The external condom gets so much dang love. And for good reason: They help protect against STIs and pregnancy at the exact same time. But what if there was another condom option that did all that too? Oh wait, there is: the internal condom.
When the We-Vibe Chorus, a C-shaped sex toy for couples marketed towards heterosexual partners, first arrived at my door, I felt about it as I do about cooling blankets or cannabis: "Cool! But probably not for me."
No doubt the sex toy industry has a gender bias problem. Even the most popular toys have old, tired names like the Womanizer, Miss Bi, Mr. Boss, and Guybrator, and oftentimes pleasure products are grouped into categories like “sex toys for women” and “sex toys for men.”
Bops like New You by Zolita, Monopoly by Ariana Grande, and Girls by Rita Ora may have bisexuality at their center. But adding tunes about ~bisexual longing~ to your Spotify doesn't mean you suddenly know the definition of this often-misunderstood sexual orientation.
What does it mean to be bisexual, exactly? And how do you know if that might apply to you? Read on to learn the definition of bisexuality, how to learn if you're bisexual, and seven ways to explore your sexuality if you think you might be bisexual.
Before social distancing orders were put into place, access to a barbell, squat rack, weight plates on weight plates on weight plates was a short drive to the gym away. But nearly half a year into the coronavirus pandemic, and most studios and gyms are still closed. Sigh.
These days, finding a vibrator that's best for your ~sexual tastes~ is easy as well, clicking (here, here, and here). Unfortunately, harness reviews are harder to come by. So when you're on the market for a new harness you're often forced to scroll page-upon-page of unhelpful Amazon reviews. Lucky for you, I'm here to simplify things. After a decade of harness testing, I can say that the best, more versatile harness is without a shadow of doubt: The SpareParts Joque Harness.
Packages. My menstrual cycle. My ex's venmo after we first broke up. These are things I track. But my steps, heart rate, and sleep are not—or, more accurately, were not. Why? Because despite the fact that I'm a big-time exerciser and part-time fitness writer, I never once envisioned myself blowing legging or sex toy money (I'm a collector of both) on a decked-out bulky bracelet. "I don't even like watches," I used to think.
"Don't have sex, because you will get pregnant and die!" This Mean Girl's quote is an oft-used punch-line. The joke? The lacking sex education curriculum in the U.S, apparently. But, really, there's absolutely nothing funny about the fact that kids are not being taught the medically-thorough information they need to make informed choices about their body.

"Good morning" may be an email greeting, a cute text your boo sends while away on business, or, TBH, any morning that doesn't begin with an alarm clock. But "good morning" is also an exercise you should absolutely be doing.
Never heard of it? This guide is for you. Scroll down to learn exactly how to do the good morning exercise with good form and what you'll gain from adding it into your exercise rotation.
Hear the word "vulnerable" and you probs think about telling someone you're *heart eyes* for them, writing about your fave sex toy for the internet (just me??), or fessing up about your feelings. But if you're a physical therapist, likely something a little more ~embodied~ comes to mind. Specifically, your groin muscles.
In years past, you may have used Pride as an excuse to slap on rainbow pasties, glitter, and tutus and gallivant through the streets alongside your LGBTQ community (*raises hand*). But this year, Pride month falls smack-dab in the middle of protests against police brutality and systemic racism, as well as the global COVID-19 pandemic, leaving many LGBTQ+ folks wondering how to—and even if to—observe Pride this year. That's why we put together this guide.
