A feminist who writes a lot of shit. I get lonely, so I turn to my pen and paper.
We met on Tinder. I thought he was kind of cute, and by kind of cute, I mean cute enough to go on one single date with. I have my profile set to see both men and women, but it's hard to find chicks who are into chicks. So I have to settle for douchebags named Chad who work at Aldi and think Saturdays are for the boys. Every once in a while, there's a genuinely nice guy who loves his mom and apple pie, but they never like me back because I'm kind of a trashy ho.
Sexy Stocking Stuffers
The holidays have arrived, just as they do every year. And yet again, you're probably unprepared and scrambling to find gifts for everyone on your list. It's hard to find the perfect present sometimes, whether you've just made a friend or known someone for years. It can be even harder if you're on a budget. Not many people think to go to the sex shop to do their shopping, but you can find something for family, friends, and coworkers. Gifts that are funny, personal, thoughtful, or just a little random. Even the perfect white elephant gift! So here are some ideas you can check out next time you're at the sex store.
Lube It Up!
When we see sex in the movies or on TV, it looks so glamorous. Celebrities throwing each other up against walls with "I must have you now" passion. Steamy sexcapades in the shower. Hands sliding down fogged up windows in jiggling cars. Sex is always hot and it almost always goes well. We strive to have what the celebrities have in different movies and shows. But my question is, where's the lube?
Living with Borderline Personality Disorder
I was 18 the first time I saw a psychiatrist. He was a man in a button-up shirt with glasses and frazzled hair. Everyone said he was one of the best in Minnesota and he would be able to help me with anything. He very briefly mentioned something called Borderline Personality Disorder, but didn't seem too worried about it. The next psychiatrist I saw was a tiny Pakistani woman, and that was all she could talk about with me. She seemed convinced that Borderline Personality Disorder was the root of all my problems.
A Review on the Maia Toy Company
Maia is a relatively new company in the adult toy industry. A lot of their toys have 10 vibrating functions and are made with medical grade silicone, which is the best silicone you can get when it comes to sex toys. Most of the toys, such as the Angel, Leah, Margo, and Zoe, are all rechargeable. There are a couple of toys that are battery operated. These battery operated toys are still made with medical grade silicone and have 15 vibrating functions.
I've always been a big girl. It's not a sad reality, it's simply a reality, and I don't mind. I've gotten to be happy with my body. No matter what I look like, there's always going to be someone in this world who takes interest in me. And even if no one does, oh well. Life goes on.
Things to Know Before Getting a Tattoo
We've all heard the horror stories: I didn't get what I wanted; the portrait looks nothing like my grandma; there's a spelling error in the quote; I passed out; it cost a fortune... Getting a tattoo can be scary, especially when you don't know what to expect. Anyone who has seen me since my freshman year of college knows I'm inked up. It took a lot of time and courage for me to get my first piece done, and it could not have gone better. Now I've got ink all over my body. Here are some tips, from a somewhat expert to all the novices, because I wish this article had been around when I was looking to get my first tattoo...
Love Your Lingerie
The first piece of lingerie I ever owned was from Walmart. I bought it for $10. Just a simple black lace chemise. I wanted to wear something sexy for my boyfriend. We lived 10 hours away, so I wanted to surprise him. The reaction I got was insane. He went absolutely nuts over this tiny washcloth sized piece of lace that barely covered me. So I went back to Walmart and got another...and another...and another.
Being a Plus-Size Boudoir Model
I adore lingerie. The lace, velvet, and sheer materials encompassing my body make me feel sexy and desirable. Unfortunately, because I'm a bigger girl, I don't have many options for lingerie. I work in a lingerie store, and we have our clothes split into plus size and regular size. The plus size section takes up three or four racks, while the regular section takes up around twenty. It's hard to find sexy things when your body is bigger.
From Stale to Spicy
Life is nothing but one big routine. We get up, go to work, eat, talk to the same people, see the same people, sleep in the same bed, day after day. The same routine can get boring, which is why we constantly look for ways to change it up! What new outfit can I wear? What new foods can I try? Is there something different to do at work? Are there new places to go or people to meet? Sex is no different. Many of us have sex with the same person, over and over and over. It can be absolutely fantastic, but it can also get a little stale. Thankfully, there are plenty of things we can do in the bedroom (and even out of the bedroom) to spice things up a bit!
The Perfect Sex Toy
Going to a sex shop can be scary. It's hard to know which shops are quality and which are a little... back-alley. Then once you do work up the courage to finally walk into one, the options can be totally overwhelming. Lube and lingerie, pills and porn, dildos and DVDs... Sex shops offer all sorts of goodies for you to choose from, but it's difficult to make a choice in the first place. I work with people every day who struggle to find what they want, so this is a quick guide to help you all out when looking for the perfect toy.
