Coming (ha) to an iPhone near you: a new game that teaches females how to masturbate. Just like you’ve always wanted, but didn't know how to ask. The game, called HappyPlayTime, is an instructional journey to the world of female orgasm, and offers…playful diagrams to help you reach your destination. Cool?
The goal of it is to smash the negative cultural stigma that frowns upon female masturbation, ‘cause you know, we’re all supposed ... Read More

Last summer, when Republican candidate Todd Akin was quoted saying, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” he was, thankfully enough, met with incredulous public outrage. (Update: he regrets his foolish words!) However – as abhorrent as Akin’s comments are – they do reveal society’s general misunderstanding of how the human body, the brain, sexual assault, and ...

Are you sick of talking about Jon Hamm’s penis yet? Me neither, but we should probably take a sec to discuss Amanda Bynes’ vagina. Last Friday, Bynes stepped up her girl-gone-wild game, announcing to the twitterverse “I want Drake to murder my vagina.” Since then the Internet’s been bugging out, trying to dissect the former child star’s actions and figure out what the hell is going on. Was the tweet a cry for help, a bold ... Read More

What is sexuality? How would you describe your sexuality? How do you think the media portrays female sexuality?
Is it bad that I can’t easily answer any of these questions?

Once upon a time, Helen Gurley Brown called herself a "non-militant feminist." She called herself that, she says, because, at the time, she was "so busy defending the idea that women should be adorable and adoring to men, I was so caught up in the idea that men were not the enemy and that we must defend and protect and love men...that I just wanted to sort of indicate, I guess, that I wasn’t mad at men." The truth is, barely anyone else ... Read More
