I will never not reblog this
this made my day
I know I’ve re-blogged this before but I’m doing it again because I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
I feel like I reblogged this before and if not shame on me, but if I did reblog this before how can I not reblog this again
The first-ever Global Female Condom Day “aims to increase the number of women, men, transpeople and youth around the world who know about, use, and advocate for female condoms.” Why? Because female condoms, also called internal condoms, offer protection against both STIs and pregnancy—and they can be controlled by a woman (or receptive partner).
Kudos to the National Female Condom Coalition for their hard work to spread the word about this excellent, oft-misunderstood method. Want to learn more about the female condom? We’ve got a Method Monday about it and more Real Stories (like the one above) from folks who use it and love it.
I just came across BEDSIDER and I’m really loving this site! Check it out and tell me what you think.
Never fuck anyone you wouldn’t wanna be.
y’all just got scienced.
For a couple years now, we’ve had a handy-dandy, free* SMS/text service anyone with a cell and data plan can use to get one-on-one help or advice about sexuality, sexual health or relationships.
Whether you need help finding (or understanding) sexual healthcare, an…
If the emergence of drug-resistant gonorrhea isn’t a good enough reason to practice safer sex practices, I don’t know what is.
Please, please, please be safe! If you need a refresher on safer sex practices, check out a few of the links on our Resources page.
(Seriously, though. Dental dams are important. Use ‘em!)
Q:When I'm on my period I always get horny (and I mean REALLY horny) but I don't really have anything to masturbate with if you understand what I mean, and I'm too embarrassed to buy anything from a shop and I can't order online because parents and whatnot. Do you have anything you could recommend?
Firstly: Don’t be embarrassed about buying something from a shop. They sell that kind of stuff for a reason and you’re not the first person those cashiers have had to ring up a vibrator for. You could start with Spencer’s—it’s not a ‘sex shop’ per se so it’s less intimidating. I’ve never had a problem buying those things
aside from giggling fits over oddly squishy dildos.
But, there are actually quite a few things you can use at home. A hairbrush handle is one idea, especially if you can cover it with a lubed condom. Detachable shower-heads are good, and so is just the bath faucet.
If you have an iPhone, there are actually vibrator apps. Yes, seriously. They aren’t brilliant, but hey, not the worst invention thought up. Electric toothbrush handles make decent vibrators as well.
Before you put anything in there, make sure the object is CLEAN. And be sure to clean it afterwards, too.
If you don’t have a credit/debit card of your own, you could try purchasing a gift card from AMEX/Mastercard/Visa with cash and making your online purchases that way. If you’re worried about privacy (and you know that your parents won’t open your packages without your permission), look for companies that ship their stuff in unmarked packages.
If you must go the DIY dildo route, keep these things in mind:
- Things that are porous (e.g. wood, handbrushes) and that can’t be boiled easily should always be covered with a condom. (This goes for DIY toys as well as store-bought vibes and dildos you can’t clean all that well.)
- Do not insert anything without a large flared base into your anus. I really, really don’t recommend DIY toys for anal penetration, as manufactured toys are specifically designed to not get lost in your anus. (Imagine having to go to the emergency room because of this…be careful!)
- No pointed or sharp edges. Ever.
- No brittle/breakable things, as you can cut yourself or they can break off inside of you. There are some pretty good glass dildos out there, but they’re generally made out of special, super-durable Pyrex. (Ice is an exception, but you should still be very careful of pointed/sharp edges.)
- Some people use fruit/vegetables. If you go this route, wash them well, peel if necessary and wrap those up in a condom to prevent infections.
- Be careful with temperature play, and please don’t put freezing cold metal on exposed skin. A good rule: if it’s too hot for the skin on the inner part of your wrist to handle, then it’s probably gonna hurt you!
- Showerheads, faucets and jacuzzi jets (which are amazing, thank you very much) are awesome, but directing the jet of water directly into the opening of your vagina can cause damage. Try directing the water towards your clit, mons, perineum or anus.

Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax). It is commonly done by touching, stroking, or massaging the penis or clitoris until an orgasm is achieved. Some women also use stimulation of the vagina to…
I found them by searching “vibrator” in the App store.
But my phone didn’t actually vibrate enough to provide anything more than an “Oh, that’s nice” feeling. I tried like five different free apps, and all were the same.
Over-all, I’d just look for a free app and try it out, but I don’t think it will pack much punch, and little satisfaction.
You’re better off spending ten dollars for a cheap one from spencers. <3
Q:I am 21 years old & a virgin. However, I am interested in sex. I have not had sex yet due to not finding someone worthy of it. I am not planning to wait till marriage, however I want to wait until I am perfectly ready & comfortable with someone I truly love. I have 2 questions. 1. When it comes to dating, how do I make it known that I dont plan to have sex anytime soon in the relationship? I have yet to date so I don't know how to approach this when it comes up. con't for next question! (sorry)
(con’t) 2. How do I go about getting a vibrator without feeling uncomfortable? I am a college student & still live at home & I don’t think my mom really likes the idea of me masturbating. I usually do it when no one is home. But I am really interested in getting a vibrator and have been for a couple years now. I am not totally comfortable with going into a sex shop because my local ones are literally hole in the walls. What would you recommend? Thanks! Love the blog!
Well, it can depend a lot on the person you are dating; some people bring it up before they start the relationship, some people bring it up after. For you, you just do it when it feels right. Say you and the person you are dating/want to date are talking one night, out on a date. Maybe you two are getting to know each other, asking questions, etc. I, personally, said to my current boyfriend “So how do you feel about sex?” and the conversation progressed from there.
You can ease into it by talking about your political views, actually, if it’s the person’s style. Say, talk about republican, democrat, conservative, liberal, abortion, contraception, sex, etc.
Basically, whatever feels natural. The other person may very well get to it before you do, and ask if you are into sex, in which case, you can reply “Oh, I’m interested in sex, but I’d rather wait to get to know you better” or something along the lines of that. Don’t EVER let them pressure you though!
As for obtaining a vibrator… My best advice on that one is actually mail order! A lot of places will mail you things discreetly (aka packaging doesn’t have “SEX TOY” stamped all over it.)
You can also go to Spencer’s! My best friend and I went to Spencer’s together (for moral support, right C?) and we each purchased the same one. If you have a friend you are comfy going with, take them! If not, you can seriously just go. The vibrators are usually at the back of the shop, and you can pick one out, and trust me, the employees check this stuff out all the time, so they shouldn’t be weird about it at all!
Here are a few vibrator websites you can look at. :)
And if the packaging is discreet enough, you can always tell your mom it’s a “back massager” if she asks. :)
But really, buying a vibrator is like buying tampons the first time; you feel like everyone is gonna stare at you and go “OHMIGOSH” but if you just hold your head up and go for it, no one’s gonna care. <3
