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.
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.
If you're eye-balling this, I'm gonna make the bold assumption that you've at least been wondering what queer means. Or have asked yourself, "am I queer?" Or wondered, "am I queer enough to call myself or think of myself as queer?"
"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.
The Best Massage Gun for Post-Workout Recovery, According to Trainers, Athletes, and Medical Professionals
If there's anything better than the rush of endorphins post-workout, it's the feeling of someone sinking their fingers into your oh-so-sore muscles for a rewarding massage.
The trouble is, a massage comes with a seriously long list of prerequisites! Think about it: You need a boo/roommate/sibling who is ready, willing, and able to knead your achey limbs. Or, you need to be willing to drop some dough on a professional masseuse.
By now, you've probably heard a sexual health pro say—punctuated by 👏👏👏, of course—that porn is entertainment, not education. And that's true. But there's another type of media that shoves lies about what sex "should" (eye roll) look like down our collective throat: Romantic comedies.
If there's anything shrouded in more #fakenews than the 2016 election or Lady Gaga's relationship with Bradley Cooper after the release of A Star Is Born, it's herpes.
The year 2017 may have gifted us Call Me By Your Name (and that wild peach scene) and the unicorn frappuccino, but nothing defined the year quite like the popularization of the #MeToo movement. Chances are, you've tuned into the development of the #MeToo movement—the social movement against the sexual harassment and assault of women and nonbinary folks—at some point. Or perhaps you even book-clubbed two texts that recently took social media by a storm on the topic: Catch and Kill and She Said.
On some level, you probably know that STDs are far more common than your middle school sex ed teacher led you to believe. But get ready for a stat-attack: Every day, more than 1.2 million STDs are acquired worldwide, and in the United States alone there are nearly 20 million new STD cases each year, according to a report from The World Health Organization (WHO). Wowza!
