  • It's My Body... and I Finally Love Everything About It!

    Media images are constantly thrown at us about how to look, how to dress, and what we should look like to be lusted after… I defy all of those media stereotypes day after day.

  • 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.

  • Bartholin Gland cyst or abscess, i.e. The Newlyweds or Honeymoon Disease

    We’ve all read many articles on our more erotic pleasurable spots, those many spots down there in our nether region that pleasure us so well, but what about the one that can get infected and cause pain? I’m talking about the Bartholin Gland, which is located on the outside folds of the labia. These glands lay mostly in discreet places and out of harm's way during our lifetimes but occasionally they can become irritated, even inflamed, and if not treated, infected.

  • Myth Busters: "Females will always know when they are having an orgasm"

    In movies and magazines and on tv and websites, I've heard this idea of orgasms being the most obvious thing in the world. Sometimes they are so mind blowing that they are impossible to miss: my body seizes, pleasure surges through me blinding and deafening.

Then it is the most obvious thing in the world, but not all orgasms are alike, not for me and certainly not from one person to another.

  • How to Shave Everywhere

    For some, there is nothing sexier than rubbing against a lover’s smooth skin. Yet for some of us shaving can be a pain. Without the promise of some sexual favor to come, it can be hassle not worth undergoing. So how do we give our lover the smoothest skin possible and still make it worth our time and effort? That’s simple, combine the two. Here’s how...

  • How Yoga and Exercise Affect Your Health

    It’s hard not to miss the benefits of yoga and exercise posted everywhere we look. We see ads for exercise machines that help burn fat and tone muscle.

That is what this article is about.

  • 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.

But really, is there anything actually wrong?

  • Life as a cam girl

    If any one ever had asked me if I thought I would ever be doing anything in life having to do with the sex industry I would have thought they were absurd.

The only thing I could see was clear, smoky glass with lights or cameras behind it--my mind was screaming! Those UFO shows on TV were true--and the aliens had me!! I could not escape, would not fully wake from the nightmare I was in!! Little did I know, my nightmare was only beginning....

  • 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?

  • EdenFantasys, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.

    Everything that has been positive in my sex life within the last ten months has been because I found a wonderful place called EdenFantasys. EdenFantasys has been the center of my growing sexual confidence, and I am so thankful for stumbling upon them.

  • 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.

  • Feeling Off Balance

    As we women grow older we face certain milestones: Childhood, Menarche, Motherhood, Menopause, Cronehood. Sometimes we have the luxury of just waiting and watching it all happen and sometimes we have to take matters into our own hands. There is often a feeling of excitement about the change in our lives and sometimes there is a touch of sadness about moving on.

  • A little BDSM finally helps me to orgasm - followed by lots of "self love!"

    As an older teenager/young adult, I was sexually dysfunctional due to past issues. In addition to thinking masturbation was "disgusting," I also never understood why men found me attractive. It wasn't until a partner tied me down and "made" me orgasm, that I truly realized what I had been missing.

  • Virginity: Hold On To It or Give It Away?

  • Why You Should Buy Your Mom a Sex Toy

    Our mothers do so much for us, often going underappreciated for all their tireless work and love. The best way to appreciate someone is to do it in a way that feels good to them, and to you - and what could feel better than facilitating a self-love revolution? Yes, it might seem weird, but your mom deserves just as many awesome sex toys as you do, and here's why...

  • 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.

  • I'm Not Fat! I'm P.H.A.T! (Pancreas Hurts All the Time!)

    People come up with all sorts of slogans to make themselves feel accepted within our chaotic society. Does any of this have any negative effects on a bed-ridden 24-year old woman? Hell no it doesn't!

  • Good Pain versus Bad Pain: BDSM and Chronic Pain

    So, should I start with BDSM or my chronic pain? They are both so intertwined into my being that I don't know how to unknot them from each other.

  • Mouth-Breathers Need Kink Too!

    I love gags! Especially ball gags! The only problem is I can't breathe through my nose, and I know I'm not the only person with that problem. So what do you do when you want to be gagged, but you also want to breathe? I'll tell you!

    Mayor Bloomberg, who recently earned the nickname “Nanny Bloomberg” after banning large sodas and trans fats from New York City, has now turned his overprotective eye towards the unlikeliest of targets – brand new mothers.

  • Keeping it Fresh in a Long-Distance Relationship

    As the summer nights grow hotter, many people bristle at the added body heat of their partner, but for many college students, among other people, it’s the absence of their heat that stings far worse. This is the season for long distance relationships, as couples leave college and return to their respective homes for the summer. Months apart can be daunting. To survive this time apart there are many “Dos and Don’ts” each person should consider.

  • The Giving Pirates

    A few months back, while on a road trip with a very dear friend, we started to talk about starting up a pirate performance troupe. It was an excuse to dress up, do some fun shows and...well, be entertaining pirates.

  • 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?

  • Is Porn Cheating? And Who Gets to Decide?

    There’s this idea going around sex-positive circles that watching porn isn’t cheating. Someone, usually a woman, will say she’s uncomfortable with her boyfriend’s porn consumption, and feels that he is cheating on her. And she gets smacked down, told in every reply that she needs to get over her insecurities and let her man be a man.

  • Dare to Be Seduced by Your Senses

    That we are universally skin-hungry and primal in our basic urges bears out in our private conversations, our media obsessions with other people’s sex lives, our ferocious reading of erotic, how-to sex books, even the collective gasp at Fifty Shades of Grey. Harlequin-esque BDSM may be the gateway drug to fetishized sex in vanilla bedrooms. It could be the wake up call that women’s erotica is a literary genre worth taking a private peek at, or it could be a sign of the times.

  • How to Help Cure DGS (Death-Grip Syndrome)

These three steps are my sure-fire way to move through those moments and back to your pleasure...fast.

  • So, You Read ‘Fifty Shades’, and Now You Want to be a Sub…

    Yes, I get it. You read all three of the ‘Fifty Shades’ books in one weekend, you’ve looked up some stuff on the Internet about BDSM, and now, you’re DYING to be a sub, right? You even typed up a contract just like the one in the book, went and bought a pair of handcuffs, and put a wanted ad in the craigslist personals looking for a Dom. Right?

  • Respect for the Small Soldier

    I am asking you today to give a respectful salute to a soldier who has gone on many a mission, sometimes grueling and even dangerous ones, to bring pleasure to couples, threesomes and moresomes in whatever rooms we may choose to rut and copulate. He’s lean and helmeted, often with a functional but flimsy hood over his helmet, but he has a tough job sometimes. Also, he makes mistakes. But let us treat him with dignity, and allow me to help you understand him a bit better.

  • 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.

And the healing all started with an ad in the back of Cosmopolitan magazine and a vibrator from EdenFantasys.

  • Broken Education

    Did you know that the government has spent 1.5 billion per year, estimated, on abstinence only programs in public schools, only to leave us with the highest teen birthrate in the entire industrialized world? Now consider that teen pregnancy costs taxpayers about 9 billion dollars a year. Are we trying to throw money away? Why do we have such a hard time talking about sex and sexuality with our kids?

  • Pinks and Blues. Colors are Colors.

    Makeup, Videogames, Nail Polish, Cookbook, Cologne. I bet you know which sex each of these items belong with.

  • Menstrual Sex: It's Not Just For Vampires

  • Exploring Vibrator Use

    According to studies, just over half of women and about 1/3 of men have at least some experience using vibrators during sexual play. Up to 35% of women usually don’t reach orgasm during masturbation, and up to 70% of women cannot orgasm from penetrative intercourse alone. However, we know that clitoral stimulation is the key for most women being able to achieve orgasm.

  • EdenCommunity: Home Away From Home

    When first looking into sex toys and sexual health, there's a big, vast world out there. Tons of websites host these products, but none held the sense of security and safety that I found within EdenFantasys. Not only did they welcome me in and make sex toys and sexual health seem harmless and inviting, but they also opened up the door for discussion with other users on the site making me feel more comfortable with my purchases.

  • Sexy Me on My Terms

    None of that is what makes me feel sexy. Yes, I love sexy lingerie, and relaxing, but that’s not what makes me feel at my sexiest. The number one thing that makes me feel the sexiest is when I am with my friends having a good time.

  • 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.

  • Sliding Backwards

    How have we slipped so far so fast, with perhaps more backsliding to come? On the face of it, that doesn't make sense, even with so many cranky and fascist old white guys in leadership positions in the local, state and federal government despite men being only half the population.

    There’s a persistent conviction in our culture that if your biosuit includes a uterus, you should use it.
