Whether you learn about sex from experience, or hear it through classes, talks and videos, there’s plenty you don’t actually know.

Most of us have, at one point, experienced some form of sex education in school. My experience was crap. Real crap. Not only was it vague, it was rushed, it was weird and it wasn’t captivating. It was a scare tactic for a bunch of disinterested, immature 10 year olds. That’s sadly echoed around most of the western world, and instead we learn more about sex from our family, our friends and increasingly the media – not to forget porn.
Sure sex is great, but sometimes certain sexual encounters and habits can be a bit, well, sordid. We all love sex. It feels great and amazing, but sometimes sex is just plain weird.

As a college student, I’m in that ‘special’ time of anyone’s life – that time where, if you haven’t lost your virginity, you certainly will do. On top of that, you’ll hear about everyone losing theirs, and the awkward, funny, weird and downright cringe worthy stories of their first time.
As Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," and that goes for sexual fears as well. Throughout life, as humans, we are constantly being bombarded by insecurities that make us feel less than. One of the most dreaded fears a person can experience is when it comes to sex. These sexual fears can make people feel defeated and inadequate. Sexual fears aren't always visible, and you may not even know you have them sometimes. They can take cover deep down inside your subconscious mind and as a result, you might find yourself avoiding sex altogether. You might be a person who has never had sex or has had a lot of sex or somewhere in the middle. If these sexual fears are getting in the way of you having a well balanced sex life then that's a major problem.
Fall in love, get married, have a couple of kids, live happily ever after. That's the formula, right? Relationships play a huge role in the makeup of our lives and sometimes, we become so caught up in what we're 'supposed' to be doing, that we veer from what we actually want. We start accepting less than we should, because we've become compliant and comfortable. But the warning signs you're in a toxic relationship are there. Right in front of our faces, the signs are there. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and ask yourself "What am I doing? Why am I still in this? Will this make me happy?". If you've started to feel unease in your own relationship, it's probably hurting you more than it's helping you. Be on the look out for these signs while you evaluate what the next step to take is.
Porn: the word itself strikes a sword in people’s perceptions; We can safely say that its one of the words in the English language that could potentially be black listed. Most people in polite company and conversation tend to refrain from using the word. But what caused this stigma to be attached to a simple four letter word? They say 80 percent of the internet is made up of purely pornographic material. Before we can begin searching for the reason that, despite the media saturation, the word is taboo, we must first ask the more important question: "What exactly is porn?" How did we end up with that terminology? And to answer that question, we must take a journey back in time to Ancient Greece, as surprising as it is, but not really, as most words in the English language are derived from it.
Living as a gay person you get to see another side to life that most never get to experience. My experience as a gay man, when regarding sex, has been that everyone’s a little gay, even if they won’t admit it out loud. Since my sexual awakening I’ve been with both men and women intimately, and everyone of them seriously just wants to get there rocks off. Gender, for the most part doesn’t matter. Also when I say ‘everyone’s a little gay’ I mean, it doesn't necessarily mean you are literally having sex with the same sex, but rather, most people will exhibit gay characteristics, behaviors or openness whether sexual or not. There is a broad spectrum from little bit gay and being open to on the down low gay to being an out and proud friend of Dorothy.
We all know a long list of insulting ‘four letter words’, some more impactful than others. However, in today’s society, one stands out to have deep social impact with a multitude of meanings; from degrading a woman’s status derived through her sexual life to a generic ‘throw-around’ insult much like any other.
We have all been there at one time or another, either as the "breaker upper" or the “broken up with”, regardless both positions can be difficult. For some couples, a break up may come from out of nowhere, leaving one of you distraught and confused, or perhaps the breakup will be a mutual agreement and the best decision for both of you. Looking out for warning signs is a good way to predict if you and your lover might be on the outs. You can use these signs as motivation to communicate and work through your issues or as an awakening that will finally push you to move on. Whatever choice you make, remember life is too short to spend it fighting and unhappy and even the worst relationships leave you with something; a new found outlook on life, love and most importantly yourself.
