Health: February 2010 Archives

Condom KnightThe condom. The wonderful, glorious condom. The savior of the promiscuous, the child-fearing fertile, and hypochondriacs. Sex educators can't sing their praise enough while doctors and public health clinics have their work loads reduced. Condoms prevent pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV. That's why I wanted to talk about them today. With HIV numbers rising worldwide, it's important to understand condoms and why they're so important to the sex positive movement.

Talk to MeAs a sex educator often I spend more time talking about communication than about vibrators, condoms, and anatomical function put together. From what I have experienced, it seems that the biggest indicator of whether or not you will achieve your sexual and emotional desires is largely dependent on how good of a communicator you are. Take a look at the various sources relationship advice. It may be phrased differently but I guarantee you that the majority of advice out there boils down to three things: communication, talking more, and communication. So there it is, your magic bullet. That said, if it is that easy why are people still hesitant to be open and honest with each other about what they want and need?

prostate_on_front.jpgThere you are with your hands on the bland manilla packaging that contains your new prostate toy. You ordered it because the reviews made it sound so good, promising you longer and more powerful orgasms. You finally broke down and decided to try it for yourself. So you parted with the $30-$70 and ordered it seven business days earlier and fell asleep each night thereafter fantasizing about the amazing pleasure this toy was going to bring into your life. The last time you remember feeling this excited was was just before you got your first BB gun.

vegetarians.jpgBack in January of 2009 the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released an ad claiming that "studies show vegetarians have better sex." To illustrate their point they produced a montage of extremely attractive, scantily clad ladies going into heat while they pleasured themselves with pumpkins and heads of broccoli. This ad led to an overwhelming amount of email sent to Sex is Fun. Some of the inquisitors wanted to know if it was indeed true, and other's claimed that they knew it was true and pleaded with me to cover the topic on the show.
