Even though research suggests that more than half of women and nearly half of men have used vibrators, there has been strikingly little research related to the toxicity of sex toy materials. However, the little that we do know suggests that toys made of glass, medical grade silicone or hard plastics are likely among the least toxic.
Sex. Really. is a small production company that produces short comedy videos for clients. They recently sent us a few links to their sexuality information videos that focus on sexual health/disease prevention, consent, and pregnancy.
Women’s genitals are quite sensitive; as a result, it’s not uncommon for women to occasionally notice genital itching or burning. Depending on the details of this sexual encounter, you may have experienced vaginal burning for any number of reasons.
Lambskin and other natural skin condoms are certainly one alternative to latex condoms. While it is true that some men experience more sensation during sex when using a natural skin condom, this benefit comes with a cost.
Superfad has created a new Durex condom video clip which I find to be entertaining and completely adorable. It’s about 30 seconds long and it depicts blown up condoms having sex. I don’t want to spoil the humor, so I’ll leave it at that. I highly recommend the outtakes, too!
A while back I signed for Google News updates. This means that anytime the phrases “sexual health,” “Kinsey Institute,” “sexuality,” or “Kinsey” pop up in a news story, I get a daily digest e-mail about it. I think it helps me keep up with current news stories, important political actions on sexuality and sexual health, and things of this nature.
My partner loses his erection every time we try to have sex. This has happened 6 times. I’ve tried putting it on myself and shortening foreplay but neither has worked. He’s fine right until the point the condom is put on.
When I first started taking the birth control pill last year, it was just to make my period regular – I wasn’t having sex. Now I am thinking about having sex, but I’m not sure when it’s safe to do so. Can I have sex at any time without getting pregnant as long as I take the pill? Or do I have to wait a while first?
A study published in the January issue of Pediatrics found that teenagers who made pledges to remain abstinent until marriage were just as likely to have non-marital sex, but less likely to use condoms or other forms of birth control once they did start having sex.
I’m 18 and recently had sex for the first time. My girlfriend and I have now done it five times in the past month and I haven’t ejaculated any of the times. Is this something to be worried about? I’m still new, and thought maybe it just takes time. I still enjoy it, so it’s okay, but I’m just curious about what you think.
