My Rabbi Found My Vibrator!

OK. Ladies, I may have some bad news. While it's usually OK to screw your brains out when you're pregnant, using a vibrator may be a little more risky. It's like this: No matter how incredible and mind-blowing your partner may be in bed (or in the backseat of a car, or in the shower, or on a pool table), orgasms from a vibrator are ... well, more electrifying. ...more

Taking Selfies After My Divorce Helped Me Figure Out Who I Wanted To Be

I Had Vaginal Rejuvenation and Feel Like a New Woman

I just recently picked up a new vagina. It's brand new, shiny, and never been tested by man. You think I'm kidding, but its true: One week ago today, along with other repair surgeries, I had a vaginal reconstruction.
