    'Vanillas'

    'Vanillas'

    So in the world of sex, there are two categories: kinky and vanilla. Kinky is where people are into stuff that goes beyond traditional sex, like restraints, orgasm control, and butt plugs. Vanilla is anything that involves regular anal, oral, or vaginal sex. Sometimes vanilla people use kinky once in a while to spice things up. Sometimes they come to the kinky side permanently. Vanillas sometimes badmouth the kinky people because they don't understand or they're just closed-minded and/or judgmental. Some kinky people have not been very nice to the vanillas either. One reason is that some of them may have been hurt by the vanillas. There is no shame in being kinky or vanilla. The thing is that we need to stop shaming each other or talking bad about each other. Just because you don't understand or agree with someone doesn't give you the right to be mean, judgmental, or rude.

    How to Deal with an STD

    How to Deal with an STD

    Three years ago, I was casually dating a boy, and one day this boy had a cold sore on his mouth. Some cunnilingus and few days later, I was experiencing extreme pain in my womanly regions... enflamed vulva and outer skin, strange sores that looked like popped blisters that invaded the whole area, pain while sitting, standing, doing anything, smelly discharge, and thick rough skin. I know, gross.

    The Male Pill

    The Male Pill

    For years now, the question as to why there is no contraceptive pill available to men has been unanswered. Now, Dundee University is the latest organisation attempting to give us an answer. Researchers at the university have already begun work on finding a drug to stimulate male infertility, although it is estimated that it will take about five years before the pill is able to be tested and much longer before it will be available in pharmacies.

    Types of Condoms

    Types of Condoms

    One of the ways we can practice safer sex is by ensuring we are using protective barriers, such as condoms. Some people think that condoms ruin sex but along with keeping us safe, many condoms are designed to enhance pleasure. It's all about figuring out what kind of condoms you prefer for which activities. Which one you choose will depend on your needs and preferences. There are a lot of different kinds of condoms to choose from but they do fall into three basic categories: external, internal, and oral.
