    By Gabriela Herstik

One of the best, most succinct explanations of tantra I’ve heard is from a mainstream health information outlet: “Tantra is a pleasure-centric practice that encourages self-exploration and mindfulness.

    By Gabriela Herstik

    ✨Masturbation Month Special✨Masturbation is the best; it feels good, it’s good for you, and you can even use your orgasms to cast spells. What’s not to love? But like lovers, there’s an endless possibility of ways and reasons you may want to do or not do something a certain way. Sometimes you may want to do you quick and dirty. That’s hot.

    Let’s Talk About Earth, Baby: Vibing in the Age of the Green New Deal

    What happens when our vibrators die? I asked a bunch of random women on the internet what they do to ditch their toys in an environmentally sound manner.
