  • Separate "feeling good" from "looking good!"

    I used to dread summer, and being told to uncover myself when all I wanted to do was cover up. After struggling with body image issues for years, I realized that perhaps the key to keeping your body confidence high is to realize that your body isn't the only part of you that matters. Don't let the judgment of others keep you out of the sunshine.

  • Is your body bikini ready? Does it really matter?

    Summer is officially here, but is your body ready for summer? How to handle the expectations of summer swimsuits and clothing.

  • Your "Flaws" are not Flaws

    You know we've reached a very low-point once companies begin making products that make our armpits fit to wear sleeveless shirts. Our armpits? Seriously? We live in such a bizarre era. We've grown up to be ashamed of the hair on our legs, the wrinkles under our eyes, and the cellulite on our legs. We've been taught to be ashamed of our natural body. But really, is there anything actually wrong?

  • I Found My Sexy

    I have never been overly comfortable about my body, but this summer I found something that makes me feel sexy and more confident. Even if the media tells you that you are not perfect, you can find your own perfect.

  • Accepting The Skin I'm In

    Summer is the season of baring skin, and for a girl who never tans but always burns, it's a time in which you can feel extremely self-conscious about being that "pasty girl."

  • Sexy Starts With YOU

    Summer is a time where we are bombarded with images of men with shirts and women in bikinis, and deciding to lounge around the beach or around the pool can be difficult. Here is my personal response to that pressure.

  • My Changing Image

    I have been looking into trying to change my inner views about what a body should look like. I want to be more positive and inclusive rather than sticking to the narrow guidelines that the media touts.

  • Summer Time = Sexy Time?

    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. The only problem is, we're not all comfortable baring that much skin, or, when we are, we realize we don't quite live up to the tanned, sexy goddesses of the media.

  • 3 Steps to Beautiful

    Keeping a positive self image is difficult in this age of beach blonde Barbies and thin as rail models, but my 3 steps to beautiful help me see that my beauty is unique to me. In living by these steps, I've learned to see myself as beautiful without comparing myself to others.

  • Loving Your Body Year Round

    Everyone worries about at least one aspect of their body. While we can pile clothes on in the winter, summer clothing is more revealing. Here are some tips to help you love your body year round!

  • Sexual Education: Who is the teacher?

    Saying who is responsible for educating the youth about sex is not as simple as it seems. There isn't one right or wrong answer, but I feel the best course of action is a united front between the home and school.

  • Sex Education: Science, not BS, please.

    No matter what individual beliefs may be regarding sexual education, it is a public matter. Access should be easily available and the literature should be accurate.

  • Taking Responsibility

    When it comes to Sex Education, kids get information from all over; from church, school, and even parents. Who is the best one to be sharing the information? When thinking back to my own education, it's not hard to have an opinion.

  • Who's responsible for sex education for kids?

    Where should the burden fall? The schools? The parents? The Church? The internet?

  • Who's Responsible?

    The decision to have a child is momentous. It's not something that just changes part of your life, it changes your [italic | entire] life. In choosing to bring up a child, you, as the parent, are responsible for providing for that child, and for teaching them everything they need to know; from learning to walk, to talking, potty training, reading, and beyond.

  • When a Mommy and a Daddy Love Each Other Very Much...

    The talk. Birds and the bees. We've all heard of it one way or another. It once was the sole responsibility of a child's parents to educate their son or daughter on sex, and eventually schools picked it up into the curriculum. There have, however, been some recent protests by parents and schools alike on sex ed. So, here's the question: Who should be educating our kids on sex?

  • The Birds and the Bees

    Whose job is it? The parents are the ones who created the child, but of course, teachers are paid to teach! So, who exactly should be teaching children sexual education, and to what extent?

  • To Whom Does The Responsibility Of Sexual Education Fall To?

    In this day and age, who should be responsible for sex ed? What should a sexual education program teach?

  • SexIs Subjective: Pushing Away Education

    Few people would disagree that parents are responsible for providing their children with the means to be happy, healthy, productive members of society. However, with many of the aspects going into this being taken over by the education system already, where does the burden of sexual education fall?

  • Learning to Be Dependent

    While being independent in certainly important, the ability to allow ourselves to depend on others is also just as vital.

  • Independence- Finding the Ever-Elusive Balance

    In the dichotic world we live in, it can be difficult to find the middle ground. Independence is no different.

  • Independence or Death… or plan B.

    The world is ever changing and everyone has different approaches to life. However, no matter what you think, it’s paramount to be able to rely one number one. Here’s why:

  • Don't Tell Me What to Do

    Freedom from possession, jealousy, and control by my partners is a really important part of my relationships. I value my personal independence in making decisions about my body, finances, and life, even down to what I wear.

  • To the Anti-Porn Brigade; it's Always 1984

    The specter of porn legislation has raised its head again in Europe, and this time they mean it

  • Reclaiming Independence

    Independence can be very difficult to get back once you've lost it, but finding yourself again is worth every bit of effort.

  • Independence or Co-dependence?

    How important is independence in a relationship?

  • Independence Can Be Empowering; But It Does Have A Price....

    Just like any other hard-fought battle, there can be casualties. Most of them are worth it, but some of them... well, that is for you to decide.

  • Fantasy and Reality

    Many of us fantasize about a certain person, sexual activity or anything that makes us get turned on. But is fantasy the same as reality?

  • Should prostitution be legal?

    While I would never turn to prostitution as a profession, I do think it should be legalized.

  • Economy Stimulation with Prostitution

    Just my humble opinion on legalizing prostitution.

  • The Oldest Profession For A Reason

    Prostitution isn't going anywhere. Rather than being naive, as a country we need to work to regulate it.

  • Shining A Light Into Darkness, Illuminating The Sex Trade

    Should prostitution be legal? A healthy national attitude about sex not only makes things pleasurable for its citizens, but also makes great financial sense.

  • Confessions of a Wishful Prostitute

    Is trading your body for money immoral? I don’t think so. In fact, I find the whole concept to be kind of hot! Let me tell you why.

  • Johns, Tricks, and Cold Hard Cash

    Opinions are free to give out, but how much will you actually DO?

  • Should prostitution be legal in your country?

    Yes, I think it should be legal for a variety of reasons. Read on if you want to find out why.

  • I Can Sell Everything...But The ONE Thing That Is Mine??!!

    For Sale: 1994 Oldsmobile, Jeans, Diamond Ring, Puppies, Dishes, Couch, Bed, Used Lelo Vibrator, Porn DVDs, Erotic Tales, Phone Sex, Used Underwear, Business Plan, Inventions, Intellectual Property...Everything but my body... Why can we sell everything we own, even our thoughts and ideas, but not our body? What would the ability to sell our own body do for our rights and lifestyles? Why is it we can sell everything but the one thing we have ultimate control over?

  • Prostitution? Yes please!

    Prostitution is known as "the world's oldest profession." If it has been around for centuries, then why is it illegal? Shouldn't everyone have a right to do what they please with their body?

  • The rights of a father in terms of abortion.

    When it comes to abortion rights, you know where you stand. However, do you know where you stand when it comes to the rights of the father of the unborn child?

  • Whose rights are it anyway?

    Is there a simple answer to the question of who has the right to make a decision on abortion? Of course not! In such a horrible situation, who gets the final say?

  • Our child, whose choice?

    Generally, I am absolutely pro-life. I am on the side of the baby, not either of the parents.

  • It Takes Two

    Abortion is such a hot topic, but it's often considered as a "woman's choice" problem. Who gets say over what happens to her body? But ultimately, it isn't just her body in question.

  • What About Him?

    It takes two to make a baby, but it only takes one person to decide if that embryo is born or not. Should the man have any say in what happens?

  • Is It The Father's Choice Too?

    If you are deciding to have an abortion while in a relationship, shouldn't the father have a say?

  • The Struggle Over Choice

    It's never an easy choice to make, but when the mother and father cannot reach an agreement, how is a plan of action eventually reached?

  • Is abortion the decision of the mother alone?

    Should the father of a child have a say in whether or not a child is aborted?

  • Equal rights across all planes!

    In a country that has fought so long for equal rights, it seems to me that a key area has been disregarded: father's rights to an unborn child. No man can legally force a woman to abort her baby, so why should a woman be able to abort a baby that has a parent who wants to raise it?

  • 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?

  • A Father's Rights Don't Trump A Mother's

    While I do acknowledge that a father has rights, I simply can't view a scenario in which they trump a woman's rights.

  • It Takes a Village

    While it's tempting for single mothers to view their contribution as the only one that really matters, it's important to acknowledge the role of father to a child.

  • Should His Opinion Count?

    The choice to have an abortion is one of the many things that empowers us as women. The right to make a choice for our own bodies. However, a child is not created by just a woman. Should the father have a say in the case of an abortion?

  • Rights Given or Taken?

    We as a society mostly agree that once a child is born, the father has some sort of parental rights and responsibilities, barring any sort of extenuating circumstances. But what about before birth? Does he have any sort of say? Should he?

  • SexIs Subjective: Gentleman's Choice?

    Should men be included in the decision making choice for abortion?

  • Pro-Choice, but Whose Choice?

    When it takes two people to make something, who gets more of a say when choosing to unmake it? Normally, the clear answer is both parties, but what if that something affects one party way more than another? Such is the dilemma of abortion. Doesn't he have a say in whether the child should live?

  • Abortion. Rights of the Father?

    Being pregnant is already a difficult thing. However in life, nothing is simple and abortion is possible. Abortion complicates things enough in itself, but the right to choose exacerbates debates and blurs lines. What about the rights of the father? I posit that his rights only extend so far, but as usual the answer is not entirely clean cut as the one I suggest.

  • From the Mouths of Babes

    I had my children as a teenager. I struggled with their irresponsible father and my teenage children know the paths that I've taken and they respect them. I've always told them that I'd respect theirs as well. However, you'll never know what they are until you talk to them.

  • SexIs Subjective: Gifting Pleasure

    Sex toys are a great way to show someone you care about their pleasure, but it is necessary to use personal judgment and respect others’ boundaries before gifting a sex toy.

  • Who has the right to decide?

    Being adult means we are responsible for our actions and their consequences. We have the ability to create and destroy lives – but such power comes with huge responsibility. Who can make such decisions? Who can shoulder such responsibility? Who can have a say over a life created by two people that would belong to two?

  • SexIs Subjective: Equal Rights?

    Normally when you see the words "equal rights" you think of race and sexual equality; but there is another topic on my mind at the moment, one that's hard to address without offending at least a few people - Do men have the right to decide whether or not the person they impregnated gets an abortion?

  • SexIs Subjective: Careful Who You Give To! (And Have Fun!)

    Be careful how you gift people with sexy gifts. Overall, though: Do it! Gift your partner with something sexy! You BE that sexy Santa!

  • SexIs Subjective: ‘Tis a gift...and ‘tis the person

    You may be able to tell who needs the gift of orgasms this Christmas, however, not everyone will be receptive to a sex toy. How can you tell who to grant some sexiness to, and who just gets monogrammed pencils? Follow these simple rules.

    Toys are a great gift... just not for Christmas.

    What's Buzzing Underneath the Tree?

    Would I give a vibrator to my grandma? Nope, you guessed right! While yes, this would be a wildly inappropriate gift for my grandmother, there are definitely people whom it is appropriate to give the Christmas gift of a healthier, more enriched sex life to!

  • SexIs Subjective: My Sister-In-Law wants to give my Mother a vibrator.

    My sister-in-law wants to give my mother a vibrator. I don't think this is a good idea. I swear her doctor's got her on goofballs.

  • SexIs Subjective: Would you buy a sex toy for your Mad Aunty Mabel?

  • SexIs Subjective: Sexual Freedom, It's not just for young people anymore!

    It's 8 pm, do you know where your grandmother is?

  • SexIs Subjective: Sexual freedom starts with us

    Although society puts pressure on us to confirm to the "norm" sexually, we can not expect change until we are willing to set aside our own inhibitions and embrace all safe, sane, and consensual sex. Only then can true sexual freedom be achieved.

  • SexIs Subjective: Sexual freedom--It is found in the last place you would ever look.

    Sexual freedom. Two words that, when paired together, mean many things to people. Once I realized what sexual freedom honestly meant to me, I felt liberated and truly free. Sexual freedom has nothing to do with legal issues, moral battles or input from other people. Sexual freedom comes from within. It is an important and overlooked truth about who you are as a person and how honest you are with yourself.

  • SexIs Subjective: Sexual Freedom and The Lack of It

    At our current time, we are fortunate that we are allowed to be who we want to be and have our own sexual preferences.Yet, at the same time, there are Jamaican citizens who are being beaten, or even killed, because they are gay or suspected to be gay. The Jamaican government isn't taking action against these vigilante mobs.

  • SexIs Subjective: Jesus Loves You, Unless You Have Butt Sex

    Society has come a long way in terms of sexual freedom, but as a part of the Catholic Church, I find myself shaking my head at all of the sexual ignorance harbored within my own faith. Some Catholics say everyone should have sex the same way or you're straying off of God's path. But sex is part of our identity! How we do it makes us unique! Sexual experimentation is not against natural law; what is unnatural is the obsession with only having sex one way, exactly the same way as everyone else.

  • SexIs Subjective: Why is Everyone Obsessed with Policing My Sex Life?

    As a kinky lesbian poly woman, it seems like everyone wants a say in how I get it on. From the federal government to religious groups to well-meaning friends, apparently I'm just not doing it "right." Why does anyone even care?

  • Sharing is Caring

    You talk to your friends about a lot of things, is sex one of the topics? And how much of your sex life do you discuss with them? I'm still trying to figure out how much to talk about with my friends, but I want to figure it out.

  • SexIs Subjective: Free to be Me

    What is the point of having sexual freedoms when the choices we make and the things we do are still so taboo? No one should feel condemned for what they do in the privacy of their own home.

  • SexIs Subjective: Freedom at Home & in Public

    It's hard to nail down the point at which someone ceases being sexually free and instead becomes disruptive or offensive. However, it's even harder to tell how justified that offense is! I don't think that we as a society are completely where we need to be in terms of open-mindedness, but I do think that we are on the way there.

  • SexIs Subjective: Open About Sex

    Nowadays people are allowed to be somewhat open about their sexual preference but not completely open. I think that should change and people should have more freedom about their sexual preferences.

  • SexIs Subjective: Freedom to be You

    One of the reasons the United States of America was founded was so that people would be free from tyranny. One thing that is absolutely needed is sexual freedom. I'm glad that I have the freedom to express myself in all ways, even if people don't agree with it.

  • SexIs Subjective: Sexual Freedom and You

    Even just a few short years ago, a simple mention of the word "sex" made people cringe and quickly change the subject to something else. Times change and now we stand up proudly for our sexual freedoms.

    Is the appeal of Halloween just a spell? What makes Halloween so attractive and sexy and mysteriously spooky? It's a day of masquerade, a day you can live out your fantasies without the world judging you. Sometimes the real you is just dying to shine, yet there is a little inner part of you that is afraid to let her out, but on Halloween, you can set her free and live in the moment.

    Maid? Nurse? Cop? Anything is possible on Halloween.

  • SexIs Subjective: Trick or Treat and Time Travel

    Reflecting on what has happened to my Halloween experience over these last few years.

  • Sexis Subjective: Sexy Costume Or... Sexy Costume.

    "Sexy" costumes have become the only option for Halloween, leaving the more demure as a thing of the past.

  • SexIs Subjective: Why can't I be a Wookie, too?

    What if men went out dressed in themed boxer-briefs and capes for Halloween and it was women that wore scary and silly costumes? Why isn't it like that to begin with? After all, isn't the adult portion of Halloween about having fun more than anything else?

  • Making A Promise To My Children About Growing Up

    As much as I do not want to, eventually I am going to have to give both of my children the talk on sex, and what happens when you grow older. When you are a parent, that is a scary thing to have to do. This is my vow to be upfront, truthful, and knowledgeable when this time comes.

  • SexIs Subjective: Halloween...the sexuality is relative to the individual.

    Are costumes demeaning to women? What about demeaning towards men? Is there too much sexuality or not enough? Do you celebrate the holiday or not?

  • SexIs Subjective: Costume Play

    Halloween has always been a favorite holiday among youth: dressing up, getting candy, pulling pranks. So what is it about the holiday that has so many adults deciding that they should join in the fun? And is that even acceptable?

  • SexIs Subjective: Halloween Costumes Are Over Sexualized

    Halloween costumes aren't offered in a wide variety. It seems your body size and gender pre-determine what kind of costume you'll be getting. Shouldn't you be allowed to pick whatever kind of costume you want, regardless of who you are?

  • SexIs Subjective: Halloween Is Not Just For Kids

    In my opinion Halloween is not just for kids, we grow up doing it every year. Why do some people think just because we grow up we should stop doing it? We have just as much fun doing things for Halloween as kids; ours is just more age appropriate.

  • Sexis Subjective: Halloween

    The weather is changing, the leaves are starting to fall off of the trees, and Halloween is right around the corner. What is it about Halloween that has adults and children loving this holiday?

  • SexIs Subjective: Keeping Halloween Sexy...for Adults

    My personal take on children wearing "sexy" Halloween costumes.

  • #SexIs Subjective: A Sexy Halloween

    Somewhere along the way, Halloween became the sexiest holiday this side of Valentine's Day. This happened somewhere along the way, and I for one am glad it has happened.

  • SexIs Subjective: Are We Too Old for Halloween?

    This is the time of year that many look forward too. New scary movies are flooding into theaters, pumpkin flavored foods are popping up on menus everywhere, and this year's costume ideas are on everyone's mind. Are we going too far? Is Halloween just for kids?

  • Why Not Let Everyone Be Happy?

    I’m going to talk about the equality in the marriage field. I only have one question, Why not let everyone be happy? Nobody runs to a happily married straight family and says, “Hey please don’t kiss in front of me or my kids, it makes me uncomfortable.” So why do we feel the right to tell homosexual couples this exact sentence? I don’t think that is right in my opinion.

  • SexIs Subjective: The Separation of Church and State...When it suits us.

    At 14 years old, I thought the government was never going to let me marry another woman...At 21, I'm fighting a battle to allow myself, my friends, and my family to marry who they want--a battle of human rights that shouldn't even be an issue.

    I believe if one group of people has a certain right, everyone else should too. It’s only fair.

  • SexIs Subjective: Marriage Equality

    As a married woman, I find marriage to be about commitment and willingness to work together, regardless of how "traditional" your relationship is.

  • SexIs Subjective: On Marriage Equality

    Marriage equality is a sensitive subject. Should marriage stay true to the tradition many are trying to uphold? If you ask me, I think that some traditions should be broken so a new one can take its place.

  • SexIs Subjective: Marriage Equality

    Marriage equality is a big issue and I wonder, why wouldn't we allow people to get married, and why would it affect my marriage?

  • SexIs Subjective: Whether thin or fat, the key to our happiness is how we see ourselves and how we feel.

    After a lifetime attempting to love myself despite my rail thin frame, psych meds made me gain 70 lbs and my self esteem sunk. It was now time to love my rolls instead of my bones, which was very confusing to my already damaged psyche, but a little self care goes a long way and now dancing to get fit fills my heart with joy and my muscles with strength.

  • SexIs Subjective: How to make sense of fitness and self acceptance as a curvy girl.

    As a size 18-20, how do you both strive for fitness but love the body you are in?

  • Real Women Don't Always Have Curves. And that's OK.

    Between the phrases "thinspiration", "fat is the new skinny", and "real women have curves", there exists the body of every women. Very rarely are we content with our bodies. Most of us see only our flaws and live in an eternal 'the grass is always greener on the other side". These phrases don't help women or promote healthy body image, but simply perpetuate the myth that there is a normal body time that women should aspire to.

  • SexIs Subjective: Weight Acceptance

    Weight. Seems like it doesn't matter. You're either too fat or too thin. Is there a happy medium?

  • SexIs Subjective: Fit is the New You

    Sometimes I feel terrible and feel like I'll always look and feel as I do right now. Other times, in fleeting moments, I can unleash the sexy beast within and look in a mirror to say, “Day-uum!” (Cause ladies, I depend on no one else to get those two syllable damns.) I guess you might call it a semi “Fat Acceptance.”

  • SexIs Subjective: Your Body Is Beautiful So You Need to Love Yourself

    If you look around you, everyone comes in different colors, shapes, and sizes. And there is nothing wrong with that at all. But some people aren't comfortable with themselves and that needs to change.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • SexIs Subjective: It'd Be Easier To Love Our Bodies If It Weren't For Other People.

    Everyone wants to love their body, it's just that everyone has a different method. Some accept their body as is, rejecting society's perception of beauty. Others work tirelessly to conform, and still more find a different path. What nearly everyone is saying, through all their work, is that people should stop judging based solely on appearance.

  • 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?

  • The Man Project

    Famed humorist Will Rogers once noted: "There are three kinds of men: The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves." But, just what the hell does it mean to be a man, anyway? In this series, SexIs turns the spotlight on the male of the species to explore where our culture stands regarding male sexuality, what’s lacking from the conversation—and how the questions we aren’t asking effect us all.

  • AIDS–the Arts and the Legacy of Activism

    Nowhere have the effects of HIV/AIDs been more strongly felt than in the arts. But even in the face of devastating loss, AIDS also inspired an enduring array of works destined to become the masterpieces of our time, and spawned a new breed of activists, whose art both offered hope and raised funding for research, outreach and education. SexIs spotlights the pioneers who polarized the movement, as well as those who carry the torch today, passing it forward, until a cure can be found.

  • The Appetites Project

    Lust. Hunger. Thirst.   More than just basic human needs designed to perpetuate the species, these complex motivations can lead us to the edge of obsession or euphoria, fulfillment or torment, despair or ecstasy. Without satisfaction, these desires can consume our lives. SexIs takes a closer look at the intersection between food and sex. What makes us lust for food? What foods increase our hunger for sex? In what ways do we creatively and compulsively feed our appetites? It’s food for thought.

  • The Sexual Challenges Project

    Not everybody is created equal. That is, we each face unique challenges in life, some more difficult to overcome than others. From disability to dysfunction to emotional disconnection, the impediments to enjoying sex are many and varied. The Sexual Challenges Project aims to examine, discuss and educate our readers about these issues that some, if not all of us must overcome to achieve a fulfilling and satisfying sex life.
