  2. Why Everyone Should Have a "Yes, No, Maybe" List

    Why Everyone Should Have a "Yes, No, Maybe" List

    By Gabriela Herstik

    No matter your relationship status, one thing still holds true; you have a right to pleasure. Scream it from the rooftops because it’s true. You have a right to know what feels good for you, you have a right to know what sets your soul aflame, you have a right to know what you’re into, and you have the right to claim it. But the reverse is also true; you have a right to know what you don’t like, you have a right to have boundaries, and you have the right to say no, always. A “yes, no, maybe” list is a list of things you’re into, some things you’re willing to try and things you’re absolutely not willing to try. This isn’t a document set in stone, instead, it’s something that can help you discover what turns you on, while also helping inspire your love and sex life.

    The ABCs of 1-2-Threesome: A Navigation Guide for the Relation-shipped

    By Jess at B Swish

    Sharing is Caring . . . or, at least that's what they taught us as kindergarteners. For some of us, this is still true well into adulthood as we explore our pleasure. Sex with multiple partners can be an enticing erotic daydream, but unlike our fantasies, a satisfying threesome usually doesn't just spontaneously happen. It's not easy to get the cosmos to align for a perfect private pleasure party. But! As we also learn as youngsters: the greatest satisfaction always follows a hard day's work.

    From Truth to Power: Honesty and Orgasm

    by Amara Purlle

    In the business of sex and pleasure, it's traditional to put orgasm at the forefront as the sole objective of a sexual encounter.

  8. Playing with Matches: Online vs. Offline Dating

    Playing with Matches: Online vs. Offline Dating

    by Amara Purlle

    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?
