Female reproductive anatomy couldn’t be boring if it tried. For example, the clitoris has over 8,000 sensory nerve endings. (Most say the penis has less.) When those clitoral nerves are stimulated they can affect 15,000 other nerve endings across the whole pelvic region. Can you say, Hello, orgasm.
How is virginity a social construct? Your body releases chemicals and shit that is a real thing.



If you’re referring to oxytocin, I’m pretty sure it’s released during all sexual intercourse and not just after having sex for the first time. It can be released during masturbation and any kind of sexual stimulation too.

The concept of virginity is made up centuries ago when women were used as bartering mechanisms and there virginities were applied to measure their values (new and untouched). Men didn’t even have virginities back then.

Do you have any advice for a tgirl who has a stubborn mustache/5o'clock shadow? I've tried plucking and shaving but my hair grows back fast and thick. I'm praying they'll slow down/stop as soon as I start hormones this year




Silicone based primer to smooth texture, orange lipstick blended over it to cancel out grey and blue hues, concealer ontop, blended with a wet sponge. Powder, and then mist the skin with something to takeaway the powdery look.







Your vagina isn’t supposed to smell like a fresh meadow pine tree cherry blossom rose petal yankee candle air freshener it’s supposed to smell like a damn vagina please don’t put fragranced stuff down there.

Shouldn’t it be up to the individual to put whatever they want down there, it isn’t your vagina after all


Seriously, fragrances cause infections, most commonly the hell-burning itchy curse of a yeast infection. It’s not healthy for your fucking body. Scented pads/etc are horrible, horrible, horrible products that literally damage you. Don’t do it.

At a lecture I was giving in a large West Coast university in the Spring of 2008, the female students talked extensively about how much they preferred to have a completely waxed pubic area as it made them feel “clean,” “hot” and “well groomed.” As they excitedly insisted that they themselves chose to have a Brazilian wax, one student let slip that her boyfriend had complained when she decided to give up on waxing. Then there was silence. I asked the student to say more about her boyfriend’s preferences and how she felt about his criticism. As she started to speak other students joined in, only now the conversation took a very different turn. The excitement in the room gave way to a subdued discussion on how some boyfriends had even refused to have sex with non-waxed girlfriends as they “looked gross.” One student told the group how her boyfriend bought her a waxing kit for Valentine’s Day, while yet another sent out an email to his friends joking about his girlfriend’s “hairy beaver.” No, she did not break up with him, she got waxed instead.

Two weeks after the waxing discussion, I was at an East Coast Ivy League school where some female students became increasingly angry. They accused me of denying them free choice in their embracing of our hypersexualized porn culture, and being the next generation’s elite women, this idea was especially repugnant because they saw no limits or constraints on them as women. Literally two minutes later, one of the students made a joke about the “trick” that many of them employ as a way to avoid hookup sex. What is this trick? These women purposely don’t shave or wax as they are getting ready to go out that night so they will feel too embarrassed to participate in hookup sex. As she spoke, I watched as others nodded their heads in agreement. When I asked why they couldn’t just say no to sex, they informed me that once you have a few drinks in you, and are at a party or a bar, it is too hard to say no. I was speechless, not least because they had just been arguing that I had denied them agency in my discussion of porn culture, and yet they saw no contradiction in telling me that they didn’t have the agency to say no to sex. The next day I flew to Utah to give a lecture in a small college, which although not a religious college, had a good percentage of Mormons and Catholics. I told them about the lecture the previous night and asked them if they knew what the trick was. It turns out that trick is everywhere, including Utah.

I tell this story because, on many levels, it neatly captures how the porn culture is affecting young women’s lives. The reality is that women don’t need to look at porn to be profoundly affected by it because images, representations, and messages of porn are now delivered to women via pop culture. Women today are still not major consumers of hard-core porn; they are, however, whether they know it or not, internalizing porn ideology, an ideology that often masquerades as advice on how to be hot, rebellious, and cool in order to attract (and hopefully keep) a man. An excellent example is genital waxing, which first became popular in porn (not least because it makes the women look pre-pubescent) and then filtered down into women’s media such as Cosmopolitan, a magazine that regularly features stories and tips on what “grooming” methods women should adopt to attract a man. Sex and the City, that hugely successful show with an almost cult following, also used waxing as a storyline. For instance, in the movie, Miranda is chastised by Samantha for “letting herself go” by having pubic hair.

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.
Sexting, the latest iteration of the dirty note and the cause of much adult moral panic, is a prime example. The media are constantly up in arms about the epidemic of sexually explicitly messages supposedly sweeping through the phones of our youth, but how common is the exchange of sexual content, and who are they really worried about? If you believe the media, the answer to the first question is “widespread,” and the answer to the second, of course, is girls. It’s girls “ruining their reputations” and having their lives destroyed by sexting, while boys, as usual, get a pass — and here’s where the actual problem lies.
Sexual education in this country is deeply flawed. It typically starts too late, and it’s also very heavy on the stigma. Rather than presenting simple factual information in an inclusive environment, it starts out by indicating that teen sex is Not Okay and proceeds from there — the goal often seems to be shaming teens who have sex and telling them that they’re doing something wrong. With that as a starter message, teens tend to tune out (as would people of any age being told that what they’re doing with their bodies is wrong) so they miss out on vital information. Assuming, of course, that they’re not trapped in a terrible abstinence-only sexual education program that does absolutely nothing to provide teens with information about safely reducing the risk of STIs and pregnancy.

7 in 10 Americans are pro-choice, but anti-choice politicians have overrun congress, governors’ seats and state legislatures. They aren’t listening to the people they represent - but we can change that by closing the gap. (via prochoiceamerica)
