Penis Facts

Before we talk about penis facts, let’s talk about our bodies for a minute. Human bodies – weird, right? They’re designed to do amazing things and yet despite that, sometimes they still malfunction.

Parsing “Passes” and “Pings”

In order to survive and thrive normally, humans need nourishment (food and drink), sleep, sexual release, and social interaction.

Non-Monogamy: Multiple Sexual Partners

The concept of having multiple sexual partners is nothing new to humanity—just ask the Ancient Greeks who enjoyed notoriously glorious sex lives and “had a desire for anyone and anything.” But when it comes to modern romance, navigating life beyond monogamy can be tricky. This is partly because monogamy in of itself is pretty straightforward:…

Non-monogamy

Non-monogamy is an umbrella term that covers a wide range of non-traditional relationship styles – all the way from “monogamish” to polyamory, relationship anarchy and everything in between.

Lessons from Open Relationship

Whenever I hear someone openly admit they are in an open relationship or marriage, they are met with accusations of cheating or not being in a “real” relationship.

Hiding the Affair

Hiding the Affair

Infidelity in romantic relationships is surprisingly common as is hiding the affair. Within the last year alone, 2-4% of partners in highly-committed relationships had an affair, and across the lifetime, about a quarter of marriages include infidelity (as discussed in Fincham & May, 2017).

Having Casual Anonymous Sex

Those who prefer casual anonymous sex to repeated-partner play have likely, at some point in their sexual journey, contended with the wrath of slut-shaming culture.

Girls Tribbing

Girls tribbing is the new 21st century phrase meaning tribadism. Ah yes, the ancient art of tribadism: girls scissoring and girls tribbing (rubbing their genitals together).

Differences in Sexual Desire

Differences in Sexual Desire

Differences in sexual desire can be highly problematic. Romantic relationships are distinguished from all others in that they are fundamentally sexual in nature.
