I Just Don't Like Sex

By Dori Hartley for YourTango.comI have a friend who claims to be an asexual. Asexual is a word that, to me, suggests a single-celled organism. Isn’t an asexual a creature who divides in two — or some kind of dual-gendered seahorse who fertilizes and carries his/her offspring to term? So I asked her what she meant by this claim and she said, “Well, I just don’t partake in sexual activity.” It seemed simple enough, yet I still couldn’t quite grasp this seemingly unnatural lack of sex-drive. “Ah,” I said. “So you’ve taken a vow of celibacy?” ...more

I Went To the ER For Help Finding a Missing Condom

A few weeks back, my boyfriend and I were enjoying another arousing sex session. He was giving it to me hard and I was really enjoying it. We recently moved into an apartment together, so there was no one around to walk in on our sesh. So, after we were both pleasured, he pulled out. To our surprise, his condom was not attached to his penis! We thought we were going absolutely nuts and both searched high and low for that condom, but it was nowhere to be found. ...more

Rape Culture and 'Yes Means Yes'

As a victim of date rape, when it comes to consent I strongly feel there is no grey area. Unfortunately, at the time, I was too young and naïve to realize that because I never actually said, "No," I was a willing participant. He came on strong, I was a bit inebriated, and before I knew it, I was in a situation that I did not want to be in at all. I blamed myself for a long time, and it took years before I could forgive myself, although there was nothing that I needed to forgive. ...more

Being Sexually Submissive Doesn't Make Me A Bad Feminist

I would passionately state that I am a feminist. From day one, my mother raised me and my three sisters to believe that women could not only do anything, but that we could do it better than boys. She was pro-choice and discussed abortion at the dinner table. She marched in protests for the union she worked for. She encouraged her closeted lesbian friend to “come out.” ...more

Trying to explain what an orgasm feels like is tricky. While we can all agree it feels absolutely amazing and it’s something we would, ideally, like to feel on repeat forever, finding the actual words to describe the specific, detailed feeling of an orgasm leaves many of us, if not most of us, speechless. ...more

Can You Be a Better Mom By Putting Your Spouse First?

By Heather Morgan-Shott for YourTango.com Think I'm a selfish, terrible mother? Actually, the opposite is true. "Are you and daddy getting divorced?" I was four years old, sitting on the bathroom floor and chatting with my mom while she soaked in the tub, when I blurted out this question. "No, of course not!" she immediately responded. "Why would you think that?" I don’t remember what I said next, but somehow we moved on to a new topic....more
