“If I masturbate too much will I be unable to get off when a guy goes down on me?” — Solo Satisfier, Baltimore, MD
Unlike guys, the more a girl masturbates the more likely she is to have an orgasm during sex (intercourse or oral). Masturbating might actually help you achieve an orgasm FASTER. The more we know our bodies (and what movements turn us on), the more we’re able to translate that experience in the sack.

Mexico City just held its 2008 Sex & Entertainment Fair, which isn’t all that exciting in itself– we have sex-industry trade shows galore in the U.S. — however, three out of every four Mexican citizens are also Roman Catholic. Not sure how religious figures feel about dildos and such. The fair debuted in 2004, and the number of attendees has more than doubled since then. Of the 117,000 people at this year’s show, which features 300,000 feet of lubricants, sex toys, and lingerie, 45 percent were women. Of course, there are detractors who believe the fair promotes promiscuity, but not that many people can be against it, as the fair pulled in almost $1 million in profits for the company which owns it.

I’ve already told you I’ve had HPV. I’ve managed to steer clear of any other STIs, but I know many people who have had herpes, crabs, gonorrhea, or chlamydia. What about you? Take our poll — don’t worry, all results are of course anonymous.

1) That’s the Human papillomavirus. No, virus isn’t a separate word. It’s the most common sexually transmitted infection, but most people who have HPV don’t even know they have it. There are over 40 strains of HPV which affect everything from the nose, to the mouth, to the genitals, sometimes in the form of oh-so-sexy warts. A few specific strains of the virus are the ones that can lead to cervical cancer. The strains of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types that can cause cancer.

Last week, we learned that VD is for everybody. This week, in a World War II-era military training film, we learn that germs “may destroy your life” if allowed to enter the body. Happy STD Awareness Month, everyone! [There is a diagram of male anatomy, so this may be NSFW.] Keep reading »
I’ve been dating a guy for about a month and a half. Every thing is great — similar outlooks on life, we share a lot of opinions on things etcetera — except for one thing. In that time period, during our above average sex life, I’ve climaxed once. ONCE. His technique is just fine, but for some reason its not happening. Typically oral sex does the trick for me, but even that’s not working. Now I feel like there’s so much pressure on it to happen that it makes it even harder now. Thoughts? Advice? New techniques? — Have You Seen My Orgasm?, Brooklyn, NY Keep reading »
Have you ever dreamed that you slept with your father? Or rode a mechanical bull while a coworker watched? We have and were disturbed for months. Fortunately, dreams don’t always mean what you think they do, and having sex with your father is nothing to worry about, so long as it only happens in your subconscious. Here, we ask psychologist Veronica Tonay, Ph.D. to decode your crazy dreams each and every week, so that you can sleep at night, and dream some more.
THE DREAM IN QUESTION: I was an actress in a small ensemble group. I found a note saying that someone was going to kill me in the performance. I think I knew who sent the note and it was another guy in the cast. My boyfriend was also in the cast. So, at our meeting before the show, I told everyone that I found this note (because I thought that if I put it out there, the guy would know that everyone knew someone was going to try to kill me). I made eye contact with him when I was reading the note, and he gave me a creepy look. After that, the director told me he thought it would be best if I just went ahead with the show and everyone would be on the lookout for the killer. So my boyfriend and I started to go back to the hotel we were staying at, and on the way back I told him I thought we both needed to get out of there. We were going to run back to the hotel and get all of our stuff and leave town. We just started running, through parking structures, up and down the stairs, across the rooftops (it was really scary) and then I woke up and realized it was a dream. — Don’t Want To Die, Portland, OR Keep reading »
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall people in a single bound….no it’s not Superman. It’s super bacterium gonorrhea! The microscopic crotch grabber is the strongest organism on the planet and much like promiscuous lovers, it can pull more than its fair share of tail, or, in this case, pili. Forget about bending steel, these little bacteria buggers can drag 100,000 times their body weight which is basically like a human hauling 22 million pounds of crap (or Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe rack).

I will forever associate my virginity with toads. No, this is no allusion to fairy tales, no delusions of princess-like grandeur. To my grave disappointment, at no point during my epic virginity-losing did the pimply faced amphibian straddling me morph into a dashing prince. The reason I associate my deflowering with toads is because instead of a Bon Jovi ballad or a sweet Sarah McLachlan serenade, I lost my virginity to the unlikely ribbits of toads.Namely those in that famous Budweiser commercial â€“ you know, BUD. WEIS. ER.
Romance, bitches, is not dead. Keep reading »
