As sexual health educator, Jenny Waugh (@sexpositivesexed) says, “Clean & "dirty" are for dishes, not people." Having an STI does not make you a dirty person. Our society often associates people with STIs with words like "loose" or "damaged goods”. Stop 👏 slut 👏 shaming 👏 people 👏 with 👏 STIs!
Adenomyosis is where the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) grows into the muscle of the uterus (the myometrium). Each month or when a person experiences a menstrual bleed, they also then experience numerous microscopic bleeds into the muscle. Adeno can be as painful, if not more painful than endo.
We form intimate connections by opening up, being vulnerable. There’s nothing easy about vulnerability, but, that’s largely the point. Only a few people in the world have the privilege of getting to know you on a deep level, and the fact that it’s scary, that it can be hard to trust others - in the end, that’s what makes our relationships worthwhile.
The impact endometriosis can have on your sexual wellness is astronomical! One of the main symptoms associated with endo is pain with sex and for a lot of people affected by endometriosis or adenomyosis, the thought of engaging in sexual activities with themselves or a partner can bring on intense feelings of anxiety! This can make for a really difficult relationship with sexual wellness.
Ever wondered if using a vibrator solo or with a partner could do more harm than good? We've compiled the evidence for you so you never have to wonder if you'll risk de sensitivity or trouble orgasming. Buckle up while we debunk this fearmongering myth together!
Bullet vibrators are the tiniest, most discreet and possibly the cutest vibrator you’ll come across. For people with vulvas looking to try a vibrator for the first time, a bullet vibe is absolutely one of the best places to start. Especially if you’re not sure what type of stimulation you prefer but you’re keen to explore. They can be an approachable and inexpensive option to kick things off. Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they aren’t mighty!
By far the most important aspect of quality is that the sex-toys you are using are made using body-safe materials. But before we discuss what this means, it’s important to understand that there are currently no legal regulations in Australia (or the US) for the production of sex toys. For authorities to effectively regulate the sex toy industry, society must first admit that there is a demand for them — a demand which needs to be normalised.
