So what is pansexuality anyway?

If you’ve heard of the term pansexuality, but don’t know what it means, check out funny, informative sex vlogger Laci Green for a great explanation.

One of my favorite moments from this video is when she reminds us that labels have as much power and significance as we give them. Do or don’t label yourself, your sexuality and gender as you please. But be open and understanding to other people who aren’t in your head, you might have to patiently explain to others who don’t know what that label means.

The only way people will become more comfortable with the spectrum of sexual and gender identity is if they know more people who identify as the various identities.

And if you’re someone who is curious about someone’s identification, be thoughtful and kind when you ask questions. Ask questions in a way that doesn’t make that person feel shamed or threatened. Use “I” statements and come from a place of genuine curiosity instead of judgement. Just because you don’t understand it right away doesn’t mean it’s wrong and that someone else can’t identify as that.

Strap-on fun for everyone!

Strapping on a dildo with a harness can be an exciting new sexual experience to try with your partner.

Strap-on sex  is a great activity for hetero and homosexual couples, as well as bisexual and trans people. It can be really exciting for a woman to play around with the role reversal and to feel like she has a penis, and lots of men find it attractive if their female partner takes control.

Men are extra lucky when it comes to anal insertion because they have a prostate, which if stimulated before and during orgasm can make ejaculation feel more explosive and intense

Insertive sex can be a big deal, so make sure you are communicating with your partner before, during and after the event. Use lube, make sure your partner is relaxed and don’t forget about their other sexy parts (clitoris, penis, tits, butts and such).

For more information about strapping it on check out the above video of  Self Serve’s Molly Adler as she gives a five-part video tutorial on tips and tricks for strapping it on.

Don’t forget the lube!

External Prostate Massage: I Got Cock Blocked

A little more detail about prostate massaging! Sex Nerd Sandra is a smart lady.

Sex Nerd Sandra

I’m both embarrassed and thrilled to find out this week that I’ve been cock blocked, quite literally, in my understanding of external prostate massage.

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with genitals. Or more specifically, their underlying structures. Recent time spent staring at Planned Parenthood’s diagrams (so detailed!) mixed with enlightening sex conference lectures have inspired me to take some of the fuzzier (read: enigmatic) pleasure areas and really flesh them out. 

One spot of confusion has been the male perineum. That is, the space between the scrotum and the anal opening. The way I’ve always heard it, to pleasure the prostate externally, just “push up on the area behind the balls.” I’ve experimented pressing on this area on partners many a-time, with little more reaction than a shrug. I finally figured I was just a super lame-o and moved on to other hot spots.

Then it HIT me this week while studying…
