Canna-curious? Have you heard the hype that combining cannabis with sex can be a potentially mind-opening journey? Well it’s hyped for a reason! At the time of publication, 33 American states have legalized medical marijuana, and ten of those states have legalized recreational marijuana use. Because of this, we're now incredibly spoilt for choice. And, if you’re in LA like us, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all your options. In an effort to make it slightly less daunting, Amara Purlle humbly offers her own recommendations to guide you into next-level sexy times.
In the mainstream, the word “nurturing” is not typically associated with sex toys, but it’s a new year and a new year hopefully means you're also on a path toward discarding outdated notions, introducing healthy new notions that let you fully explore Next Phase you. It's 2019 and we should shop for erotic accoutrement like we shop for everything else. In this post, Amara Purlle gets frank about the possibility of learning about yourself through intimate personal device shopping.
We are still fighting for reproductive rights, and also fighting to maintain ownership of our sexuality every day. This is related to the current shortage of Sex Ed in the U.S. (only 13 out of 50 states require sex education to be medically accurate). Women bear the responsibility to educate themselves and each other because of this shortage in education resources. That responsibility weighs more heavily now than ever, with organizations like Planned Parenthood under threat. With sexual education comes sexual health, and part of that education is self-exploration. In this post, Amara explores how the #MeToo movement has changed attitudes or heightened recognition of the freedom to explore our bodies as we see fit.
Ahh, long distance relationships. LDRs...lovers daring romance...lengthy doting rituals...loooong dry-spell run.... In this post, Amara Purlle cast the net out to...the net...to see what her people’s more recent LDR experiences have been with Facetime in lieu of face-to-face time.
✨Masturbation Month Special✨It’s officially Masturbation Month! While we in the pleasure industry tend to celebrate masturbation on the daily, we also recognize that visibly dedicating an entire month to the topic serves as a necessary reminder that self-pleasure can be an integral and accessible aspect of everyone’s sexuality. For this post, Amara Purlle explores rapidly changing attitudes towards self-love and why it’s still so important to celebrate going solo.
Yes, women are into it. No, it’s not just a male-on-male pastime. Yes, heterosexual men are doing it, too. Yes, it’s a completely normal, celebrated and valid way to achieve orgasm. So, let’s do this! Let’s go deep and continue to un-taboo anal sex. Because, as previous columnists have said: It’s [insert decade here]. Time to get real.
No one really thought a device built solely for instant self-gratification could build an empire, but it has, a few times over. And they say sex doesn’t sell. We want to honor its contribution to fulfilling sex lives everywhere (both real and imagined) by digging into the Rabbit’s history, cultural impact, and why it created a demand for what we knew we always needed. (Warning, puns ahead.)
In the business of sex and pleasure, it's traditional to put orgasm at the forefront as the sole objective of a sexual encounter. While orgasm is one of the most euphoric experiences, there's so much else that goes hand in hand with it along the way. At B Swish, we're in the business of sexual pleasure as a vehicle for confidence, empowerment, wellness, and satisfaction. Lately, this has us thinking a lot about honesty. Specifically, we’ve been wondering about how honesty is related to the experience of orgasm for women. For this post, we asked Amara Purlle to write about how getting stark naked with ourselves before anyone else could lead to not just stronger orgasm but also to stronger human connection.
What are our lives roughly 70% of the time, if not Chaotic? Such is the plight of the modern woman. Our seemingly Sisyphean attempts at maintaining a work/life balance might have us sitting in a combusting kitchen like the “This is Fine” dog. We juggle so many things, and we usually find ways to restore the expended energy so we can continue juggling day after day. But we don’t always tend to the energy that needs restoring the most. Set aside all things on the daily battlefront for a second, and let’s talk about sex. Are you having it? Is it good? Can it be better? More specifically, let’s talk about the Big O—how are your Orgasms?
It's a meat market out there. I grew up in an analog world. Achieving any genuine romantic connection through an app, I scoffed, would yield superficial results at best. On the other hand, with a lot of online dating, it’s easy enough to tell who’s looking for a random hook-up, who wants someone to nest with, and who’s open to grabbing a drink and seeing if anything progresses without any string-like attachments. Thus raiseth the questions: What works for you? What is your end goal? Is boredom reason enough to try and connect with someone? Which method is the most effective use of your time and energy?
