15 Things That Are Worse Than Going To The Gynecologist

A blogger for the Guardian recently wrote about her experience at the gynecologist, admitting it was her first time getting a pelvic exam in ten years (she was inspired to go after the recent death of reality star Jane Goody, from cervical cancer), and that it would most likely be her last. The problem, she said, is that her doctor wasn’t very “encouraging,” something she thinks all physicians should be, especially with patients who suffer from mental health problems, learning disabilities, and/or a history of sexual abuse. She found it difficult to relax during her exam, but instead of asking her physician for relaxation techniques or getting recommendations for a different physician altogether, this woman is swearing off pelvic exams for the rest of her life — because potentially dying is a better fate than a few minutes of discomfort. Ladies! Don’t be like this woman! Don’t let a little fear stand between you and your health. If you aren’t getting a yearly pelvic exam because you’re afraid or embarrassed, keep in mind that you’re already suffering through plenty of things that are far worse than lying naked in a pair of stirrups for five minutes. After the jump, 15 things that are worse than going to the gynecologist. Keep reading »

Your Vajayjay’s First Protective Shield!

Oprah may be responsible for “vajayjay” — slang for “vagina,” for those of you living under a rock — entering the English lexicon, but she doesn’t own the trademark. That explains why VJJ Enterprises — which has filed a trademarking application — was able to manufacture the first product ever featuring the term. The best part? It’s a visor. For your vagina. Marketed as similar to a jock strap, the Vaj-j Visor is described as a “protective vaginal shield designed to help protect a woman’s inner vulva area inner labia, clitoris, and vaginal opening.” For sports? Actually, the Vaj-j Visor is supposed to be used during grooming activities, like Brazilian and bikini waxing, depilatories and shaving, hair coloring, tanning or spa treatments. Your vaginal muscles help keep the visor in place. All this contact with your naughty bits means that each visor needs to be tossed out after use. Visit the company’s website to find out how to buy it wholesale. [Vaj-J Visor via Mother Jones] Keep reading »

Google Users Prefer Hairy Bush

Contrary to what we’ve heard from the guys on our IM, Google searches seem to indicate that men prefer women to have a wild, out of control bush over waxed or shaved pubic styles. According to YesButNoButYes, a bikini shop owner did some investigating of Google search trends and discovered that more people search the term “hairy p*ssy” than they do “bald p*ssy,” “shaved p*ssy,” “brazilian wax,” or “bikini wax.” These are hardly scientific results; after all, who knows if these Googlers were searching for these terms based on pubic hair preference. And besides that, the other results added up about equal the total for “hairy p*ssy” searches. Also, don’t people search for things they’re generally really, like, interested in? Maybe those who really, really like untamed pubes are more devoted to their fetish than the majority who prefer but don’t obsess about a little below-the-belt grooming. Keep reading »

This Week In Sex News: Oral Contraceptives, Chlamydia Screenings, And Viagra For Girls

  • Researchers from Texas A&M University have found that women who do resistance exercises and take oral contraceptives don’t seem to gain as much lean muscle as those who aren’t on the Pill. [Medical News Today] — This could explain why my arms aren’t exactly ripped.
  • If you weren’t planning on heeding our advice about getting screened for STDs regularly, the CDC reports that fewer than half of at-risk women in the U.S. are getting screening for chlamydia. While 47 percent is a lot better than 25 percent, it’s not enough. Chlamydia is the most common bacterial STD in the U.S. [Reuters]
  • Male sexual dysfunction drugs might help women with comparable problems. Researchers at the Medical College of Georgia tested Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis on female rats and found they helped with sexual dysfunction. [MSNBC] — But what works on rats doesn’t necessarily work on humans, so don’t pop any of your boyfriends pills just yet.

    The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: Hepatitis

    Many people have heard of hepatitis C from Naomi Judd’s public battle with the disease and her crusade to make people aware of it. However, there are seven additional forms of hepatitis in existence that few people are aware of, including the kind you can get from having sex.

    1. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver, but it’s not quite that simple.
    2. There are eight different types of hepatitis, viral and nonviral. Hepatitis B is the type is primarily transmitted through sexual contact. It can be acute or chronic, and acute hepatitis B can become chronic, resulting in long-term health problems and even death.

    Should A Dude Blow Smoke Up Your Vag?

    While men love it when we blow them, can women get blown, too? I’m talking literally — with smoke. That’s what I’ve been wondering on 4/20 (remember kids, don’t do drugs!). Erowid, the online encyclopedia of drugs, answers this burning question:

    I was sitting around with my girlfriend yesterday, smoking marijuana out of a bong. We decided to try an experiment, so I exhaled a bong hit into her vagina and held it closed for a few seconds. When I let go, a significant amount of smoke was forced out. I did this three times, and a few minutes later she reported feeling high. My girlfriend has asthma, which prevents her from smoking up as much as she wants to. If vaginal administration of marijuana smoke is safe, it would allow her to get high without irritating her lungs. Is this safe for the vagina and the rest of the body?

    You Won’t Get Tested For STDs Unless You Ask

    April is STD Awareness Month, which should serve as a yearly reminder to get tested for STDs if you’re sexually active. When you make your annual trip to the gyno, your doc will probably give you a Pap smear, check your boobs for lumps, and inspect your lady parts for abnormalities. But your gynecologist won’t test you for anything else, unless you ask — so ask! Here’s what tests you should be getting. Keep reading »

    Doin’ It With Dr. V: How To Put A Condom On With Your Mouth

    Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. Now, let’s get this party started…

    Last week, I got down on my knees and begged! And not for the usual reason — I was just pleading with you, in honor of STD Awareness Month, to always use a condom. It’s saved my ass in more ways than one, that’s for sure! Now, a lot of people think condoms aren’t sexy because it makes the passion take a time out. Well, that is just not true, girl! Putting on a prophylactic can be a smooth move that your man will ask you to do over and over again. That is, if you stick it to him using nothing but your mouth! Here’s how you can slide a condom on him with nothing but a smile. Keep reading »

    Hide Your Sons! The Hyena Comes Out To Prey

    Just as soon as we’ve tired of hearing, using, typing, writing the word “cougar,” a new type of female has emerged from the forest. According to Dr. Jennifer Austin Leigh, the “number one teen girl expert in America,” men have another feline to worry about — the “hyena.” “Hyena” describes a much younger woman/girl, who preys upon and dominates young men. The female hyena (the real one), you see, is much more sexually aggressive than her male counterpart — just like many of today’s teen girls and young women, says Best. She coined the term in her new book, “Laid or Loved? The Secrets Guys Wish You Knew About Being a Dream Girl Instead of a Just-in-his-Jeans Girl,” in which she quotes a teenage boy describing the loss of his virginity.

    “I was at a party and had too much to drink. One of the girls decided she wanted a thrill and pulled off my pants and made me get a hard-on and had sex with me … Everyone watched. Some friends even took pictures of us on their cell phones. I don’t remember a lot of it. But I regret that I lost my virginity like that.”

    Wow. Crazy. But is this one example really indicative of some raging epidemic? Keep reading »

    The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: HIV

    Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the virus that causes AIDS in the later stages of the disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one million people in the United States are infected with HIV/AIDS, and about a quarter of those people don’t know they’re infected. Approximately 39.5 million people are infected with HIV worldwide. With those high numbers, it’s important that everyone knows how HIV spreads and how to avoid contracting the virus.

    1. HIV attacks the immune system by destroying white blood cells that fight off disease. Once HIV has weakened the immune system to the point where the body can’t fight off infection, the infection advances to its final stage: AIDS. It can take years for the body to arrive at this stage. People infected with HIV/AIDS usually die of other so-called “opportunistic” diseases and cancers that the body can no longer fight off.
    2. HIV lives in the blood and semen or vaginal fluid of the infected person. This is why the most common ways of transmitting HIV is through vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse. The second most common way of transmitting HIV is through the sharing of needles and syringes. Lastly, HIV can be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding. Because HIV is carried in the infected person’s blood, the virus can also be transmitted through blood transfusions, organ and tissue transplants, and shared needles. HIV is not transmitted through handshaking, hugging, contact with a toilet seat, touching a doorknob, or casual contact, and HIV cannot live outside the body for long.
