The Half the Sky Movement

I am a whore. I am a very happy whore. Specifically, a white, middle-class, healthy, financially comfortable, independent woman who chooses to supplement her income with sex work because I find sex to be very therapeutic and pleasurable and want to share that positivity with others. I think people should be able to choose prostitution […]

Pussy Party Recap!

A dozen women attended Sex Positive St. Louis’ FIRST EVER Pussy Party, and it’s clear we need to host more parties like this!!! Every woman brought something different to the table.

Female Ejaculation Demo Recap!

As we walked up to the house where the female ejaculation demo was taking place, my partner muttered, “I feel like we’re attending a swinger’s party.” I laughed, “Why do you say that?” “We’re going to a random house in the suburbs, we’re carrying a bag full of sex toys, we’re about to witness a […]

Ladies Henna Night Feb 3!

I have no tattoos. I’m too fluid for anything permanent. I have pale skin. I am a blank canvas. I love art. My body is a work of art in itself. I love experimenting with temporary body decoration, so I was eager to submit to Jeanjoel Spatafora‘s paintbrush, steady hand, and artistic vision. I booked […]

The 35-Year-Old Virgin

by David Wraith My friend “Lisette” (not her real name) has a beautiful face, a gorgeous head of hair and (although she’s loathe to admit it) a pretty kick-ass body. She’s smart, well read, witty and charming. I’ve been trying to get in her pants for over twenty years, to no avail. I am comforted, […]

Male Etiquette Class Sept 22

The other day I had a guy write to me: I am wondering if you might be able to provide some advice on how to interact with women better. I realize I am not very good at starting or maintaining conversations, recognizing when a woman is flirting with me, or flirting with a woman. I […]

Is PIV the New Oral?

by Anna In days of yore, when reproduction and male orgasm were the primary goals of heterosexual sex,  ‘the main event’ was the penis moving in and out of the vagina. Indeed, even today what most people mean when they say ‘sex’ is penetration (of a penis, into a vagina).  That’s problematic in so many […]
