An Open Letter to President Obama [Lady Bits]

Some of these are awkward in a good way, some of them just suck, but either way if you can laugh with your casual-sex-sex-partner or significant other it will only bring you closer together. Bring on the farts?

Birth Control Recall!

Awesome. As if we aren't paranoid enough already about getting pregnant, Pfizer recalled over 1 million birth control packets on Tuesday. Hi, stop having sex immediately! Thanks. I mean, this isn't a battery that could fry your cell phone kind of recall. This is a 'Hey, we may have just fried your life/career/bank account' kind of recall.

Sex in the News: Wrapping up the Reproductive Year

Ice Cream Flavors for College Students

Recently Ben & Jerry’s released an ice cream flavor called “Schweddy Balls”, based off a Saturday Night Live sketch. I thought it was hilarious. Parents thought it was awful. A parent group is protesting the flavor because they think it’s vulgar. Well guess what, parent group?

When Plan A Fails…

A broken condom is like a broken promise. From the moment we learn what sex is, we’re urged not to have it. But then immediately warned “but if you do have sex, USE A CONDOM!”

Tuffy Luv Talks Birth Control

Dear Tuffy Luv, My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost five months, and until recently, it has been amazing. About a month and a half ago I began taking the pill - Loestrin 24 Fe - out of necessity. The condom broke a few times and I had to take Plan B. At first I was pleased with it.

He Said/She Said: The Abortion Issue

Abortion is not something I like to think about all the time. In my mind, if I'm careful enough, it's not something I really need to worry about.
