From the time I learned what fingering was at age 11, it sounded not that great to me, and that didn’t really change for about 15 years.
Even the idea of fingering (or “fingerbanging,” yikes) sounded bad. It almost didn’t occur to me that fingering would be something I would actually want. I’d even tried it myself but it was just left me bored and with a cramp in my hand. Certainly it did not stand up to the newly discovered pleasures of the shower head. But it was still something I expected to happen to me at some point, a natural progression like moonrise following sunset or whatever. Keep reading »
I never would have guessed that combing through stock photography would be such an exciting and enlightening part of my job, but everyday I encounter at least one photograph that teaches me something new about life, love and even my own body. Oh yeah, stock photography is full of wisdom about the vagina — crazy shit your gynecologist probably never told you. For example… [Photos: Shutterstock]
I’ve looked at my own vagina a few times, but two instances in particular are memorable. The first time I got a completely bare wax, I had barely recovered from the final strip being ripped from my labia when the waxer stuck a hand mirror between my legs and was like, “Good?” It was the first time I was seeing the thing unencumbered by any hair whatsoever and it happened rather unexpectedly, so my reaction was one of mild shock and awe. Oh hello there. You look different naked. The second memorable moment of eye contact between me and my vagina was during a visit to my gynecologist, when my doc asked if I wanted to see my cervix. This encounter was fascinating because “HELLLLOOOOOOO DOWN THEEREEEEE!” but also disturbing because “WOW, that thing is gonna have to expand a whole lot more to push a baby head out someday. WTF.” Keep reading »
According to NYMag.com’s exploration of what’s hot in hair down there, the latest pubic hairstyle trending for Brooklyn-ite Hippie girls “with porny sex lives, who need to be hairless for licking,” is the “full-bush Brazilian.” You’re probably wondering what the hell that is, because it sounds like an oxymoron. Brazilian bikini wax = hairless, full bush = lots of hair, so, the math seems off.
The full-bush Brazilian is defined as a wax job which includes “removing the hair from the labia and butt crack (in accordance with Brazilian-waxing tradition) while leaving everything on top fully grown.” A “pubic reverse mullet”: party up top, business at the bottom. The vaginal version of “having it all.” The “normcore of pubes.” Keep reading »
It was only a matter of time before authorities found Kenneth Herold’s missing Rolex … in his masseuse’s vagina. Lady parts were not designed to be used as storage lockers, yet that hasn’t stopped countless women from stashing valuables in their front hole. Christina Lafave was one of those women.

Women have been faking orgasms since the beginning of time, the reasoning usually being that it’s just easier to pretend you’ve come when you know a real one is not going to happen. It gives the dude you’re getting down with unspoken permission to finish up himself, without having to say, mid-coitus, “Hey, you know, an orgasm just isn’t in the cards for me today, but you should go ahead and have yours!” (Generally, I encourage people to not mislead their sexual partners and would like to see women be more open about what gets them off so they don’t feel inclined to fake — however, there are just some sexual relationships you don’t want to go that deep with. Whatever. Do you, girl.) But one thing I hadn’t considered, even as an occasional faker myself, is that women might actually get off, in some way, by faking it. Well, a recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Archives found that some women fake orgasms for their own pleasure, and upon thinking about it, I realized that I totally relate. Keep reading »
