  • The Monosexual’s Guide to Dating Someone Flexible

    There are many of us who identify as queer, bisexual, pansexual, or other identities that are flexible in the sex and gender of our partners. This is often difficult to understand for people who are not flexible, whether they are gay or straight. This is a guide for monosexual (cliff notes version: someone who is either straight or gay) partners of sexually flexible people to be a better partner to those of us with these unique identities.

  • Medicalizing Queer Identities

    How does the medicalized discourse surrounding queer identities shape the way that queer people are represented? Is this better or worse for the individual experience? Medicalizing a cultural notion, such a sexual identity, a construct that exists in only certain socio-political arenas, works to harm individuals more than empower them. Rather than embrace sexuality and trans*gender expression, our society's language is framing queerness as similar to a disease.

  • What appealing DADT didn't do

    What we forgot when President Obama repealed Don't Ask Don't Tell.

  • Gendered Technology: Sex Toys and the Perpetuation of Feminine/Masculine Ideals

    On EdenFantasys.com, a search of the word “pink” yields 48 pages of content while a similar search of the word “blue” only produces 26. Traditional gendered ideals are upheld not in the functionality of sex objects, women’s toys are insertable while men’s come in the shape of disembodied torsos and vaginas, but even in their color and design.

  • Boy, Girl, or Both?...Part 2

I will be exploring one man’s experiences growing up as intersexual, along with our medical, cultural, and religious views on the topic. Read on for more.

    Comics have undergone a revolution in the last ten years. A new era of creativity is flourishing and with it, new ideas are flowing. Not only are all sorts of issues being tackled in refreshing ways, sexism and caricatured ideas about sex are being challenged.

  • Pregnancy and Trans People

    When you say, "Should the father have a say in the pregnancy?" what do you mean by "father" and do you mean it cis-sexistly? What about trans* people?

  • Asexuality

    In a world full of sex (this site!), an unrecognized portion of the population identifies as asexual. In all ways, they are normal, well-adjusted people, yet profess no interest in sexual acts. All they want is to be understood.

    Are you cis and dating or considering dating a person who is trans* or queer and you're not sure how to handle the relationship?

So read on, even if you're feeling confident that you can handle the relationship, because trust me, even if you think you know it all, you don't!

  • America Should Vouch for Gay Marriage.

  • A Hairy Situation

    Every November, men allow their facial hair to run wild for cancer. So why exactly is the idea of women doing the same "just gross"?

  • It's hard out there for a sex toy lover, especially if you're straight.

    Why on God's green earth is it hard for people to grasp that straight men can love sex toys too? Or why do they think you must be gay?

  • Five Things Bisexual Women are Tired of Hearing

    Okay, you’ve come out as bisexual. You’re definitely in love with cocks, and you’re definitely in love with vaginas. Sculpted chests and soft breasts are both appealing. So why should you have to choose? You can love both, because isn’t the LGBT*QIA movement all about loving who you want?

  • Homosexuality: The Nature vs Nurture Debate

    We've all heard of this debate. Were you born gay? Or did your environment nurture you to be gay? My answer to those who ask me is, "I chose to be gay the moment you chose to be straight." I've always known. The only choice I had was if or when I chose to "come out of the closet." This article is about sexual orientation and my opinion on whether or not sexual orientation is based on nature, nurture, or both.

  • Not Gay, Not Straight

    As a queer person who is not strictly lesbian, it can be difficult to fit into a gay community, and impossible to fit into a straight one.

  • Sexual Freedom and Old Man Smith

    Just when you think you've gotten your own sexuality figured out, you run into your nosy next door neighbor and come to the conclusion that not only is your own sexuality something that you could never share publicly, but God help anyone who is any different from him. Gossip and closed mindedness are the two worst killers of everything good. Despite how good his lawn looks, he can still be a total idiot.

  • Maine Backs Same-Sex Marriage

    On November 6th, 2012, Maine voters agreed that the state should issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This is a huge win for the LGBT community and Maine as a whole. But not everybody thinks so.

  • Passing under the Trans*-Dar: a definition of "Passing" and how it relates to those in the trans* community

    Passing is great for those trans* people who do, but for those who can't manage to look how society expects, people using the term "passing" can leave them feeling like Pinocchio-- wooden and fake and without a fairy to make them *real*.

  • More Than Boys and Girls: C-boys, Dickgirls, Traps, Transvestites, and Transfolk

    You've heard terms like "dickgirl" and "trap" throughout the internet when referring to specialty porn, but who and what are these people, and what's the difference between them all? There's more than just the man-woman/boy-girl binary!

  • We Are Not Part of a Circus Freak Show

    You see that I am different and you want to stop and stare? Have you no respect? Is it your goal to be as blunt and as rude as possible? I am not your personal side show. I am not something you can just gawk at, stare at and belittle. I am a person just like you: I have feelings, a heart, and a family. I may be different. I am a transman.

    My best friend knew he was gay at the age of 12. What he went through was horrible but today he is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met.

  • Why I Don’t Care About Gay Marriage (And Why You Shouldn’t Either)

    Gay marriage is a huge political issue now, with states overturning DOMA and the institution of gay marriage in several states in the last few years. Don't get me wrong--that's great. But we queers need to get our priorities straight.

  • Define This: Femme

    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. Femme identity often fits neither into the expectations from heterosexual society nor queer communities. As I'm finally settling comfortably into my own skin, I've come to realize the importance of femme visibility.

  • Out of the Bi Label, Into the Pan Fire

    I always bristle at the word “confused,” used to describe a sexual orientation that’s not straight, not lesbian and not gay. I’m sexually attracted to men, and I’m sexually attracted to women.

Don't get me wrong I love being a female but I just think men got it easier than females.

  • The Poly Male, or Rational Polyamory

    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!

  • The 5 Hallmarks of Feminist Porn

    For decades, pornography has been the domain of men - it was made by and for horny guys, with no regard for what women might like and what might be upsetting to them. But in recent years, there has been a surge of new feminist porn, created by female pornographers for women's enjoyment. It's a very diverse genre, but there are some defining features that most feminist porn films possess.

  • Latina Glitter — The Stars of The U.S.'s Oldest Latina Drag Show

  • I Don’t Want to Be a Lady: Arya Stark in Game of Thrones

  • Queen USA 2011 Transgender Beauty Pageant Builds Community

    In many ways, the beauty pageant held at Los Angeles’ Circus Disco on April 10, 2011 was a pageant just like any other. Long, lithe women dressed elaborately in sexy sequined outfits did the stiletto stomp across the stage. It was all glamour, glitz, and hyper-femininity, but the beautiful competitors were more than they appeared to be.

  • The Principle Of Exaggeration: Why We're Obsessed With Big Tits and Bodacious Booty

    When it comes to attraction, we seldom hold up “average” as “ideal” — if we did we wouldn’t need the two different words, would we? So, why do we so consistently seem to glorify extremes — the most ginormous breasts, the most chiseled abs, the fullest head of hair? Are we just shallow jerks? Or are we actually wired for extremes?

  • West Hollywood Transgender Advisory Board Seeks to Educate and Foster Understanding

    The city of West Hollywood is the first in the world to have its own Transgender Advisory Board that operates independently and separate from the gay and lesbian board. As gay and lesbian people become more accepted in mainstream America, those in the transgender community fight for the most basic of rights, like being able to use the public restroom of the gender with which they identify.

  • Super Bowl Special: Football is So Gay, Part 2

    With Super Bowl XLV just scant hours away, the hopes and hearts and bets of NFL fans rest with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers. While many will be on the edge of their seats, waiting with Chee-toh'd fingers and brewski breath to vicariously live each play as the clock ticks down to the final outcome, the real winners of the sport may be in a totally different league.

  • Super Bowl Special: Football is So Gay, Part 1

    This is a feel-good story, so I’m not going to go for any done-to-death homoerotic jokes about jocks and locker rooms and sweaty, grunting men. But I might make a crack about Tom Brady’s Justin Bieber-hair. Just once.

  • Transgender Travelers vs. the TSA

    There’s a lot of outrage about the TSA’s “enhanced patdowns” (their term) and “pornoscanners” (the media’s) going around. Despite all the coverage, one important problem has been overlooked— but then, it always has: How do gender and orientation outliers navigate the system of “same-sex” security?

  • Mr. Sexsmith Goes To SXSW and Takes a Lover

  • Disclosing Trans Status

    Every gender identity has its own rules for social interaction. It’s when you step into the larger world that etiquette gets a little tricky. You meet someone. You fall “in like.” Finding the right moment to reveal you’re transgendered requires tact, timing and, sometimes... a little luck.

    When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle penned the first Sherlock Holmes story in 1887, he had no idea he was breathing life into what would eventually become the greatest crime-fighting franchise in history.

  • How I Learned to Stop Worrying (About Masturbation) and Love the Porn

    When I moved in with my partner, I did something unthinkable: I stopped masturbating. Though we’d been sexually active before we moved in together, but I still masturbated occasionally, and, at 21, I needed to orgasm more than once a week. Still, I felt bad when I did it—almost like it was a betrayal of our relationship, and I promised myself that I’d stop when we moved in together.

  • Sexual Fluidity

    My first real girl crush didn’t occur until I was well into my 20s. Sure, I’d had my share of the typical and varied female relationships—female friends whom I loved like sisters, female rock stars I’d idolized, girls I deeply admired for their beauty, wit, charm, or intelligence—I’d loved many, many women in my life. But I’d never actually been turned on by one. Until recently...

  • All in the Family

    According to John 4:8: “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” Proponents of the Westboro Baptist Church, however, preach that God is hate—if you’re gay, that is. See how one community’s protest united people from all walks of life to baptize these divisive miscreants with the waters of truthiness, and banish evil from their midst.

  • Dr. Dick on Demand: The Dark Heart of Homophobia

    Institutionalized homophobia is rooted in a fear and hatred of women. The dominant culture enshrines male privilege and punishes anyone who attempts to undercut the paradigm. Discrimination is so widespread, ingrained—and sometimes so subtle—that many non-gay people don’t even notice most of it. But those of us on the receiving end of the bigotry are keenly aware.

  • A Lexicon of LGBT Slang

    In our melting pot of a world, it’s not uncommon for individuals to speak more than one language—Spanish, Italian, Chinese…Gay? Yep, like most subcultures, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community has created its own dialect over the years. No, it’s not a full-fledged alien language; more like ‘street’ talk that intermingles with everyday speak.

  • Dr. Dick on Demand: What’s Up with Me, Doc—Am I Gay or Straight?

    Can we talk about sexual orientation for a bit? I sure hope so, because I’m gonna go ahead and launch into it here, if you’re ready or not.

  • Observations of a Sex Positive Gypsy: Porn for the Jaded

    One of the hazards of being a traveling sex educator is the creeping case of the hornies that just can’t be quelled, pilled, potioned, pricked, or new-aged away...which inevitably leads me to porn. Problem is, I think I qualify as “porn-jaded”, which makes it harder to find the stuff that gets my panties in a twist. What to do?

  • Come Out, Come Out… …or not. Whatevs. It’s cool.

    We find ourselves and we find our loves in our own unique ways – that’s just how it happens to be. For a whole bunch of us, this means we get caught in a closet (or ten) somewhere along the line. Fortunately, we get to decide for ourselves whether or not (and how) we want to come out of those closets. There’s a lot to consider.
