  • 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. Every day, you see newsstand articles that read “Lose 20 lbs in 20 weeks!” and articles on how to do the latest superstar workout or Hollywood diet trend. Who needs it? I sure don’t!

  • Bikinis after Babies

    Summer is fast approaching. Time for beaches, the sun, and swimsuits. But if you're like me, then you don't feel comfortable in a swim suit.

  • Confessions of a Reluctant Rope Top: Part 2

    Just thinking about new things (or even old things in new ways) can completely rewire how you think about sex. Seriously, just give it a go.

  • 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...

  • 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?

  • 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."

  • OM On My Way!

    A total transformation is needed, a thorough cleansing of the body and soul. Unfortunately there is no "For Dummies" way to do this, so I am setting out to find my way to health and happiness.

  • Summer Bodies of All Sizes

    The media bombards us with images of "the perfect body" every day; it even seems to become more rampant once the summer weather comes in. We are constantly told that "thin is beautiful," but I am here to tell you something. That something? YOU are beautiful just the way you are.

  • Abercrombie & Fitch's Body-Neagative Attitude Lands Them in Hot Water with Consumers

    Abercrombie's CEO Mike Jeffries made it very clear that only cool, beautiful, popular, skinny people should be shopping in his stores. Not part of the cool crowd? He'd prefer you stay out.

  • 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.

  • Tell me what brought you here? Therapeutic ink and the stories that get them there.

    Being a tattoo artist I hear the life story of so many people. It touches me deep to my soul, and sometimes even scares me. I can now say I can see why memoirs are written, and may even write one of my own some day. Sometimes it is a pain junkie, sometimes a person with a heart wrenching story. The list goes on and on.

  • Beautify Your Body: Nipple Piercings Q&A

    Ever wanted to be that bad and sexy girl or boy? Do you want to vamp up your style and become a more confidant you? Maybe you just want to add some extra excitement in bed or surprise your partner with something new? No matter your motivation, nipple piercing is for you. Here I answer some of the most common questions about these piercings to help you gain the confidence to take the jump.

  • How To Take Good Boudoir Photos of Yourself

    This is a general suggestion for ways to take quality photos of yourself or your partner without getting into too many specifics. You can always look up some of the technical terms and find tutorials online, but I thought I would write this as an introduction to those who have considered it, but thought they couldn't do it themselves.

  • Sexy Piercings! Part 2: The Vertical Clitoral Hood

    A lot of people get this piercing confused with piercing of the actual clitoris. I assure you, piercing the hood and piercing the clitoris itself are two very different things. Piercing the clitoris itself is actually difficult and dangerous and not often done or recommended. The hood on the other hand, which is the layer of tissue above the clitoris, is safer and has a lot of benefits for your sex life.

  • The Tale of a Lesbian Lolita

    Being a Lolita is tricky enough. Combining an alternate sexuality with that can sometimes make your peers give you some pretty odd looks!

  • Lolita Anti-Sexuality

    In the minds of some girls, Lolitas should never have so much as a sexual thought. It's a common happening in the communities to even begin to think like this. Why? Are they right? Hell no!

  • Shopping Guide: How to Get the Best Underwear for Your Body Type

    Too many times have we all bought underwear that looked great on a model or in our hands but when we wear it, it looks bad or not as expected. I am a firm believer that women should and can wear whatever underwear we like, and this is not a guide to what you should or should not wear. Rather, think of it as we all have a color best for us, and we all have an underwear cut that is best for us.

  • When Our Breasts Sag

    Some of us have a bit of give in the boob area. Considerations on achieving a pair of firm breasts should not jump first to surgery. There are some things we can do to prevent a sagging pair and maintain our chest puppies. As always, hard work is involved.

  • Lolita Fashion and Sexuality

    There are too many misconceptions about the Lolita subculture. "They're ageplayers," you'll see. Here's why they're wrong.

  • Everyone Is, In Fact, Sexy

    Social media tries to tell us how to define what is sexy, but of course, most of us do not conform. Each and every one of us has our own preferences on who we think is sexy. Each and every one of us has our own kink. Kinking it up is just one of our ways we rebel against sexual conformity. Everyone is sexy.

  • Sexy piercings part 1: Nipples!

    Usually when the phrase "pierced nipples" comes up, it inspires cringing and thoughts of intense pain, and then loss of sensation. Well, I'm here to say that's not necessarily true. Nipple barbells can be aesthetically pleasing when placed correctly by a skilled piercer and will heal nicely with proper after care. Getting my own nipples pierced was one of the best piercing decisions I've ever made, for both looks and my sex life.

    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"?

  • Seventeen Magazine and Body Image

    Recently, Seventeen magazine posted a BMI calculator on its website. The BMI levels, when compared with the Center For Disease Control's levels, are extremely low. BMI is a very controversial subject, with disagreement about whether it's valid or not. But Seventeen has been blasted for basically telling underweight girls that they are normal, and normal girls that they are fat. And I think we can all agree that's not a healthy message.

    A quick look at the lives of two restrictive corset wearers.

  • I Am A Feminist, and I Shave My Legs

    As a feminist who shaves my legs, I have frequently had to defend shaving my legs, much more than I expected to do within a group of people that supposedly advocates free choice.

  • Perfection is Overrated

    Real women come in all sorts: fat and thin, healthy and unhealthy, old and young, cis and trans, and all of us with different outlooks on life. But the one thing we all have in common is that none of us can possibly live up to the idea of "perfection" that is shoved down our throats!

  • Attention Skinny Women Bashers: You're Not Helping Self-Esteem Either

    There is a lot of pressure in America to be skinny when you're a woman, but lately there have been campaigns that bash skinny women in a way that are just as unhelpful to women's self-esteem as calling larger women unattractive. This is a healthy skinny woman's response to internet campaigns to end the bashing of curvy women that in turn call skinny women unattractive and perpetuate the very beauty standards they seek to abolish.

  • 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.

  • SexIs Subjective: Halloween Is Not Just For Kids

  • In Praise of Lingerie

    It seems for most men that what they want most is to see a woman fully nude and ready to do all sorts of unspeakable to them. I'm a bit different. I want a woman to do those unspeakable things to me and with me, but I want her wearing something more than her birthday suit.

  • Own Your Body—All of It

    These days, a great number of people will probably say it takes a huge fool of a man to tell women what to do with their bodies. Ladies, I'm going to be just that kind of fool right now.

  • Define This: Burlesque

    It is a common misconception that Burlesque performance is the same as stripping or exotic dancing. While they have many similar elements, they are not the same thing.

  • It's Getting Harder to Tell the Girls from the Women...

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

  • 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.

    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.

    It is a balmy fifty degrees in New York City today, finally, and after that rain last weekend there’s barely any snow on the ground anymore.
