Alright, truth time. How many of you have faked it, and how often? Maybe it was just that one time—you were caught up in a moment or had a one-night stand gone awry. Maybe you’re nervous about that hot new guy you’re dating and figure you’ll just fake it at the beginning, so that he doesn’t think the sex sucks and leave. Or maybe you’re in a steady relationship or married, and you fake it all the time because you, rationalizing from a very warm and loving place, don’t want to bruise your significant other’s ego. Maybe you think a synthetic “O” is the best way to keep the peace, you’re too shy to say what you want, or you’re just tired from a long day’s work and want to get it over with.
Not to be pushy or anything, but it’s really important that we stop. Keep reading »

Have you ever heard of Vulva? It’s a perfume that supposedly smells like a woman’s vagina. Well, now the Vulva commercial is here. Not surprisingly, the ad focuses a great deal on a woman’s vagina. Nevertheless, it remains unclear exactly what Vulva smells like in real life. And why the woman who stars in this commercial is working out the entire time, I am not entirely sure. It’s possible Vulva is a “gag” product, but I don’t know. I think people would buy this stuff. But maybe not women. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
If Kotex isn’t allowed to say “vagina” or even “down there” in their tampon commercials, they should check out LoveYourVagina.com, a veritable thesaurus of ladyparts synonyms. LoveYourVagina.com is asking ladies to “tell us what you lovingly call yours …” and graphing the answers in a massive tag cloud. Eve Ensler would be so proud! Or she might cry. I can’t really tell.
After the jump, let’s take a look at16 straight-up weird names we girls call our vag. Keep reading »
In some cultures, the word “hymen” could use a little re-branding — so the Swedish Association for Sexual Education is renaming it! The Nordic org is publishing literature in English, Arabic and Sorani Kurdish that refers to that little piece of tissue as the “vaginal crown” or “vaginal corona” and provides diagrams and info explaining that not having a hymen when one first has sex doesn’t mean one is not a virgin. The group hopes that more education on the hymen — er, the “vaginal crown” — will have an effect on the number of so-called “honor killings,” when male members of a family murder a woman who has had sex out of wedlock or even associated with a man who is not socially approved by her culture.
The Frisky is pretty happy to live in a place where having a hymen on our wedding night is not a life or death situation. But we couldn’t help but get the ol’ wheels turning when it comes to renaming the hymen. After the jump, some suggestions that were probably rejected … Keep reading »
On Sunday afternoon I walked between a naked man and woman in public, through a doorway actually. They stared at me as I tried to avoid her breasts and to not graze his genitals with my oversized handbag. I couldn’t make eye contact with them, though I felt their breath. No, this wasn’t a sex party, nor a strip club. This was the Museum of Modern Art here in New York City, folks. This nude couple was re-enacting “Imponderabilia,” a performance first staged by artist Marina Abramovic and Ulay, her partner, at an art gallery in 1977. This is one of five live performances — three nude ones — of Abramovic’s that is being staged as part of The Artist is Present exhibit, a 40-year survey of the work of the self-proclaimed “grandmother of performance art.” Good timing, MoMA, since it’s National Women’s History Month …
