Showing Up and Being Seen

Hi everybody. Let's take a deep, cathartic breath. For about a year, I've been wrestling with some big things. A year ago, I made some huge changes to my life. Not just that - I became a quitter. I quit my job and I quit a medication that wasn't working for me. What happened next was amazing: I got into therapy and grad school. If you know anything at all about stress, you know that even positive changes can produce it. Big, positive things like marriage, moving into a new home, quitting a job that you've outgrown... all of these things contribute to stress. ...

Woodhull #SFS16: Experiences and Feels

Unbelievably, it's already been over a month since I left Germany for Woodhull #SFS16. I've already written about the sessions that I was able to attend, and you can check that out here. Today I want to talk about what I experienced and, most terrifyingly, how I felt. Photo shows two SheVibe stickers (one logo, one Blog Squad), a Doxy Wand keychain, a dildo from Funkit Toys, two bundles of blue Twisted Monk rope, and a Tantus Rumble, all on top of a white faux sheepskin.   #SFS16: The Experiences Woodhull's Sexual Freedom Summit was my first con in 3 years, so I tried to ...

Lube, Arousal Nonconcordance, and You

If you and I are friends, there's a very good chance that at some point I have either given you lube or recommended lube to you. If we're really good friends, you've probably received a bottle of Sliquid. Here's why: Lube makes everything better. Pictured: Kindle screen showing the cover of Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski & bottles of Sliquid (Silk, Sassy, and Sea) laying on a faux sheepskin. "But I don't need lube!" It is possible that you don't need lube. You really may not, especially if you're never putting anything in your anus (or someone else's). You may go through your entire life with ...

By 1 Permalink 0

I'm back! Thank you so much to my sponsors, friends, and family for sending me to Woodhull #SFS16! It was easily one of the best experiences of my life thus far. I tried to write one big Woodhull recap post, but it ended up being like, a million words long. Instead, I present to you the first in a series. Today, we're talking about what I learned in some of the brilliant sessions that I attended. Woodhull SFS16: What I Learned If you read my first post about Woodhull's Sexual Freedom Summit, then you know there were plenty of talks I was excited ...

WeVibe Rave: My Clit is an Enigma

By 1 No tags Permalink 0

I received the much anticipated WeVibe Rave way back at the beginning of this year. If you're not familiar with it, it's a very uniquely-shaped G-spot vibrator complete with a super-powerful motor. When I say "super-powerful", I mean that it might actually be the strongest, deeply rumbly vibrator that I own. If you've read about or own the We-Vibe Tango or Touch (or the now-defunct Salsa), this probably doesn't surprise you. When it comes to their solo toys, We-Vibe is really no slouch in the motor department. Now, please prepare yourselves for what I'm about to say: At first, I really didn't like ...
