Study after study shows that women in same-sex relationships are having more orgasms than any other women.
By owning something that exists exclusively for my pleasure, I affirm the importance of female sexual pleasure and solo pleasure overall.
Rather than trying to incorporate new sex acts that might not feel totally natural, it can be helpful to bring back old moves.

The pressure of getting a long-lasting erection or having a big enough penis can become such a focus to a man (and his partner) that it dominates his experience, not allowing him (or his lover) to be present, connected, and all of the other things necessary for an amazing sexual experience.
The most wonderful time of year can be the worst time of year if you're going through a break-up right around this time. This list contains the basic stages (as experienced in my inner circle) of what it looks like to get through a break-up.
Turns out the vaginal orgasm -- and even the G-spot, to get more specific -- have never existed, according to a new study
