That is what this article is about.

    Summer seems to be an invitation to be sexier: we've all got an excuse to wear less clothing and suddenly it's okay (and maybe even expected) to be flashing more skin than we'd find acceptable any other time of the year. String bikinis, crop tops, short shorts, and see-through layers all become popular during the summer.

Are you an abuser, either intentionally or accidentally?

  • The “O” Isn’t Always All

    I’m a huge fan of orgasms. Huge. Hell, I’m a damn groupie. I’ll pursue orgasms like deadheads used to follow the Grateful Dead—and then Phish after Jerry Garcia died.

    As a gay teenager I owned a t-shirt that boldly stated, "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian." Ten years later, the sentiment of that shirt couldn't be more true.

    Everyone's had them: rude, ignorant, or downright offensive emails. Usually, I just ignore them. This time, I got mad.

  • And They Called Me Whore

    Waking up the next morning, grabbing my panties off of the floor and pulling my clothes together, I realized what had happened. I bow my head, make my way to my friends car, and silently wait for what I know is coming. Laughing, they tell me how wild I got last night, and then I disappeared.

  • Why I Hate the Term BBW

    For me, the term BBW is offensive and I'd rather it not be used. There are better ways to talk about ourselves!

  • Lingerie: A must have for confidence

    I believe that everyone deserves to feel sexy, because everyone has something that's sexy about them. The trouble is, a lot of people don't have that confidence. I found my confidence to be sexy through the world of lingerie, and I believe that you can, too! Go on, dive in! You might just find something that'll change your world.

  • A Day in the Life of a Cam Girl : It's all in the Attitude.

    Whether we are talking about Mothers, Cam Whores, or sexual fetishes; it all comes down to attitude. And as much as people believe, attitude is everything. I am here to tell you, you are full of shit. Attitude means nothing if you can't back it up with the rest of you.

  • Sexis Subjective: My Body, Not Myself.

    In a effort to not offend, are we making it acceptable to live with an unhealthy lifestyle?

  • Blossoming Through EdenFantasys.

    My experience with EdenFantasys has boosted my confidence in many areas of my life and has helped me blossom as an individual.

  • SexIs Subjective: Fit is the New...

    How someone looks is a big deal in society. Different phrases and trends in body perception can play a large role in someone's life. Why one phrase is finally getting it right.

  • Women are not the victims

    In the dating game, women nowadays seem to be reaping feelings of entitlement and are left bitter and underwhelmed by their selection pool. Let's put ourselves in the man's shoes for a minute.

  • You wanna do what?!?

    Years ago, before I was serious about anything in my life, I was involved in a relationship that was purely focused on carnal needs. We certainly didn't imply catching a movie when we said, “Hey, you wanna hang out tonight?” The agenda was sex. What's funny to me isthat it isn't the sex that I remember. It's something so insanely simple he said so long ago that dug in and made a home in my mind.

  • Confessions of a Stripper

    When you see her on the stage, she appears to be a sexual animal. She is the nameless face that you desire to make all your dreams come true. She knows how it is done and you are ready for her to teach you. Or can she? Do the girls who make their living by teasing men, making them believe they have all the sexual answers, really know what they like in the bed?

  • Guys, Gays, and Dildos (Not as gay as it sounds)

    For about as long as sex toys have existed, there's always been the assumption (by the ignorant majority) that straight guys can't own a toy, specifically a dildo. If you're in the mood to read a rant, read on!

  • Passionate Sex Educator

    When I first signed up for my EdenFantasys account in January 2012, I did not expect very much out of the experience. I had just ended a long term relationship and wanted to try several new things to help me deal with the funk that comes at the end of a relationship. I was interested in finding creative and unique ways to improve on my writing and try to do some self discovery. The fact that I could write reviews in exchange for free or discounted products was a good incentive as well.

  • A follow up on Summer Skin

    Skin protection is important throughout the year but especially in the summer. Are you doing it right? Have you taken all the precautions? How do you know if you're doing it right?

  • SexIs Subjective: When Words Are Not Enough

    When I first read the suggested topic for this month, I thought that I wouldn't have anything to say about the subject. The slogans and phrases mentioned do not really apply to me. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that although the phrases did not exactly apply to me, they did make me feel something.

    They made me feel angry.

  • The Plastic Vagina

    Vaginal cosmetic surgery is on the rise in both the US and the UK. Why? What is so wrong with a woman's vagina that she needs to go under the knife to change it? What is normal?

  • SexIs Subjective: It's YOUR Body.

    Controversial movements like ‘fat acceptance’ or ‘pro-ana’ leave me feeling confused. How can they ask for acceptance of their bodies while at the same time bringing others down because of theirs?

  • SexIs Subjective: Body Image vs. Conformity

    Joining a group is all about finding individuals with similar thoughts to your own. When the group’s main subject is weight and body image, should the thoughts of others really be used to create your own?

  • That 8-Year-Old should NOT be wearing those Daisy Dukes!

    Now, I’m not a parent, but this needs some correction! I was walking in the mall the other day and I saw a little girl, no more than 8 years old, in some daisy dukes.

  • Am I a Freak? (A Formal Introduction)

    Nobody can tell you better if your turn-ons make you a freak, than the expert on taboo... Tessa Taboo.

  • From Raped And Repressed, To Rabbit Aficionado: A Tale Of Redemption Through EdenFantasys.

    It took me twelve years to mentally and emotionally recover my sexual health after being raped the first time I had sex. It took another six years for me to find a trustworthy man with whom I could explore my newfound sexuality. And the healing all started with an ad in the back of Cosmopolitan magazine and a vibrator from EdenFantasys.

  • Toys Aren't a Determination of Social Acceptability

    In celebration of ten years of business, we asked community members to tell us what, if anything, EdenFantasys has done for them. This author attributes his complete change in outlook to our members.

  • Fat: Mind Over Matter?

    A recent study on body image shows overweight people who lose weight find themselves still lingering in the “fat” mindset. Another reports people view those who lose a lot of weight in a more negative light than even overweight people who maintain a stable weight. What, then, is the point of losing weight?

  • Living Life Labeled

    Why does society pressure us to label and define our sexuality?

  • Summer Skin: How do you keep it safe?

    I’m not a girly girl by any means and I don’t have a normal regimen that I use on a daily basis all year long to protect my skin. However, in the summer I do pay special attention to my skin and try to prevent it from becoming sun burned and becoming dry. Dry skin is very common in the summer so I am going to offer some suggestions on what I do to keep my skin soft in the summer.

  • Why So Uptight?

    I was recently on a business trip and had an afternoon to kill and went to a museum for a change of pace. As I was walking around all of the great pieces of art, I noticed something. Back in the Renaissance people were not afraid to have everything hanging out and on view to the world.

  • Body Image and Sex: Are they related?

    Body confidence is a huge issue when it comes to being sexual. Study after study, in all areas of the globe, continue to show that more than half of women are concerned about their body image. Many men are affected by this as well, with gay men showing even higher rates of body dissatisfaction than women.

  • Size Matters

    I’ve been hearing a lot about the fat acceptance movement. Many people are touting it, and it seems that if you suggest that many people in the United States (and elsewhere, especially in the Western world) are overweight and that it’s a bad thing overall, it makes you a discriminatory, judgmental jerk.
