  • Sex Feed: Is ninety two percent enough?

    OraQuick is a new at home testing kit that helps people determine their HIV status. But with a high error rate, is it actually helping?

  • Define This: Retroverted Uterus

    What is a retroverted uterus? Did you know that there are different types of tipped uteruses?

  • No Love Without the Glove: Forget That!

    I've always been the type of girl to strictly believe that condoms were the best way to go. Birth control has too many side effects and I never wanted to take the risk. But oh was I pleasantly mistaken!

  • Cum, Jizz, Semen, Whatever

    A plea on behalf of those of us who ejaculate semen to all those who don't: Please don't make us feel as if there's something wrong about the way our bodies orgasm.

  • 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.

  • Women = Vaginas. Men = Pigs.

    What limited sexual education communicates to our children.

  • Furry: The Fuzzier Side of Kink

    Maybe you've seen that creepy CSI episode about fursuiting...Maybe you've had a friend that seemed to like to make animal noises just a little too much--or maybe you've just seen it around the internet. The furry fandom is growing by the day, but no one ever seems able to clearly define it or give a straight answer to any question about it. It really makes you wonder...What exactly IS a furry?

    Not everyone has those wonderfully sensitive, easy clits that can get off from a few light rubs of a finger.

You've got options and you're not alone!

    Because there are so many different butt toys on the market, some that often beget a ‘wtf is that for?’, I figured I’d explain what the most common products are and what they’re used for.

  • She Plays, He Plays: Jopen Gets Intense

    We’re going to get to one of the craziest sex toys we’ve ever experienced, but first, a quick bit of seemingly disparate, though actually quite relevant Rydell history.

  • My Inner Bitch’s Bout with Sex Negative Education

    An eye-opening event this summer has me thinking: It’s time for grownups to grow up about sex education. It starts too late and ends too early. I came to this realization this summer when I got a dreaded call from my son’s camp director one Friday afternoon.

  • Cuffs, Paddles and Safewords, Oh My! Or Beginner BDSM!

    BDSM seems to be on everyone's lips these days since a certain book became so popular. It seems that even some of the most quiet of people I have spoken with seem infatuated with giving it a try. So I thought why not impart some of the basics that everyone should know.

  • Variety is the Spice of Life

    Sex is a huge part of any relationship, whether you're sexually active all the time or tend to be the kind of couple that only gets it on every so often, sex is important. While the cuddly, cute, "let's make love" kind of sex is enjoyable, spicing things up can be just as much fun if not more. I've recently decided to take my sexual relationship and turn up the volume a few notches, and DAMN is it making a lot of noise.

  • Touch your dang wiener, or how am I writing this if I'm blind?

    I certainly hope that any male browsing through SexIs knows the joys of masturbation, if not you should be masturbating. Male masturbation has many physical, emotional, and even sexual benefits. You can trust me on this, I've been doing it since I was twelve. I've practically got a PhD in waxing the dolphin. (Warning this article will contain several euphemisms for spanking the monkey.)

  • How Young Is Too Young?

    Following up on my last article I wanted to make a point that I do not believe that every raging hormone, sex crazed, young teenager should be having sex.

  • Advocating Circumcision

    In recent years, the American tide has turned against circumcision. "Inactivists" speak out against what they call an unpunished form of genital mutilation and more and more states health coverage is refusing to cover the procedure. Yet, inn all the discussions of the negative side effects, these inactivists often gloss over the pro's of circumcision.

  • Where in the world are the dental dams!?

    Condoms have become standard practice in sexual education, but dental dams remain something rarely discussed. Why is it that sex education is so often told through old fashioned terms?

    After years of feeling down and depressed, wondering what was wrong with me, I've finally come to terms with the fact that my body doesn't work quite the way I would like it to.

  • Bisexuality in My Own Words

    Why should it be that someone like me can have no fear when calling myself a lesbian, but upon discovering I like both women and men, be so hesitant to call myself bisexual? I hesitate because of all the popular misconceptions and negative connotations that are associated with the word.

  • There’s Nothing Plain About Vanilla

    The first time I heard sex described as vanilla, condemnation dripping from the tongue, I might have felt my private life was wanting were it not for my sense of play. My inner child has always loved vanilla, especially the rich, creamy French version. Mystifyingly delicious in every food or beverage and heady as a scent, there was nothing plain about it.

  • Tokophobia: Fear of Childbirth

    Tokophobia: (As defined by Wikipedia) described the fear of childbirth or pregnancy as a psychological disorder, when it had previously received little to no attention as such, in addition to introducing the term tokophobia (from the Greek tokos, meaning childbirth and phobos, meaning fear). Tokophobia is also widely ascribed to the fear of pregnancy, and may also be called "maieusiophobia."

  • Move Over, G-Spot: The Anterior Fornix is Here

    For decades, the G-spot has reigned supreme as the marvelous, magical, mystical erogenous zone inside the vagina. But did you know there's an often-overlooked hot spot just a couple of inches north of the G-spot? It's called the anterior fornix, and it just might change your life.

  • Beyond the Bedroom: The Submissive Lifestyle

    Many have toyed with the idea of becoming a submissive, but have put it off because the general stereotype of a submissive is taking as much pain as your master can deal. Dominant and submissive relationships can, and do, go beyond the bedroom.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

To survive this time apart there are many “Dos and Don’ts” each person should consider.

    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?

However, we know that clitoral stimulation is the key for most women being able to achieve orgasm.
