Hoo-Ha, That Was Funny!

Sex and sketch comedy go together like penis and vagina. And the good people at Planned Parenthood of Portland, Oregon get both apparently. While the health videos we watched in high school were dull, outdated, and often gross, their take on taking care of down there features cool hotties and is laugh out loud awesome.

The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: Chlamydia

1. Chlamydia is really common, but I don’t think anyone I know has told me they’ve had it. But they must have told someone, because Chlamydia is the most frequently reported STD in the US. In 2006, there were over a million reported cases. Eww. Teenagers and young women are more susceptible to infection because…

Gone-orrhea!

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, i…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Grossest STDs

STD Awareness Month has got us thinking about which STDs we consider the worst (besides AIDS, because, c’mon) — I vote for gonorrhea, personally. But then I wonder about dudes, and how much they really know about STDs. Do they know enough to vote for the worst? Their responses, after the jump.

The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: Crabs

Oh my god, CRABS. Aren’t they beautiful?
1. Pubic lice aka crabs, do not have feet. They have CLAWS, hence the whole crab thing. Without feet they can’t actually walk across any surface, but they do sort of swing from hair to hair. Like a tiny, tiny Tarzan, if you will.
