No doubt, a breakup is one of the worst pains you can experience. But did you know parting ways with a lover can hurt so much that it actually causes symptoms similar to those of a heart attack? When this happens it's a condition known as broken heart syndrome, and ending a relationship isn't the only catalyst.
These sad stats have critical implications for the physical and mental health and longevity of people in the queer community — and they certainly do nothing to remedy queer folks' increased risk for things including suicide, substance abuse, sexually transmitted infections, anxiety and depression, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Whether your interest in strap-on sex comes from your boo's suggestion, after watching Below Her Mouth, or at the recommendation of your friendly neighborhood Instagram sex educator, there's no question: Strap-on sex can be really freaking pleasurable.
"Dental dam" may sound like a cage for your canines or dike made out of dentures. But dental dams are actually a barrier method that can be used during oral sex to reduce the risk of STI transmission — which, FYI, is a real risk, considering STI rates continue to be higher than ever in the U.S. So why don't dental dams get the respect and attention they deserve?

Do you ever just wanna revel in the stress-busting benefits of bumping uglies without having to hash-out some hottie's risk of COVID-19 exposure? In this year of Rona, a little pleasure sesh is a perfect antidote to the madness that has been 2020.
It was the end of the first date. So far, things had been going well. We'd touched on dating histories, confirmed our compatible relationship orientations (both monogamous), discussed our individual vices, bonded over a shared love of yoga and CrossFit, and giddily shared photos of our furbabies. I was definitely connecting with this man — we'll call him Derek — but there was still one major thing we hadn't yet talked about: My bisexuality.
Been noodling on the difference between genderqueer and nonbinary? Still confused about what queer actually means? Scratching your head over the differences between pansexuality, omnisexuality, and bisexuality? This guide is for you.

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.”

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.
