Our Conversation Topic of the Day is brought to you by Banned Book Week. One of the main causes for a book to be banned is “sexuality” What is a book, movie, song, tv show, or any other piece of media that was a part of your sexual, romantic, or self-love awakening?
What is a story you have about censorship and how it affected your sexuality, romantic self, or comfort with your self?
Submission: Agender approved: cups & implant
I am a nonbinary (specifically agender) university student who was assigned female at birth, and I have found extreme satisfaction using both a menstrual cup and the birth control arm implant.
I’d heard about the cups from webcomic OhJoySexToy (a delightfully informative and sex-positive comic you should all be reading) so I thought I’d try it out. Due to a scheduling error, the very first time I used it I was on the heaviest day of my period, going without underwear in white short-shorts while ROCK CLIMBING. Seriously. It worked flawlessly!
It saves you money you’d otherwise spend on pads and tampons, who want you to believe they are the only options available - don’t believe their lies! It saves waste. It doesn’t give you Toxic Shock Syndrome like tampons, which can literally kill you! You can wear it when you’re not on your period to keep your underwear free of discharge. When you are on your period, it applies constant pressure to your vaginal walls, which can actually ease cramps! It is so comfortable that sometimes I have to check whether or not I remembered to put it in.
Now birth control. Once I began a sexual relationship with a cis man, I started using “the pill,” but I’m a huge daydreamer/procrastinator, so I was always terrified and paranoid I had slipped up at some point, no matter how thorough I had been. As a result, he and I always used condoms.
Looking for a “passive” birth control method (one that wouldn’t need regular maintenance on my part) I settled on the Nexplanon silicon rod implant, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It makes my period come far less often. It makes my period significantly lighter and less uncomfortable. At three years, it’s long-term. My student insurance paid for everything. Most importantly, it’s so effective and passive that I literally don’t have to think about it!
I have been recommending these every single time the topic comes up, and the combo lets my body feel most in line with my genderlessness (reducing dysphoria). My ask/submit is open if you have any questions - nothing is out of line! Try them out!
I have had contact with you a few times under my vaginismus/asexuality blog called vaginismusandsexuality. I am requesting stories from people concerning a subject and since this also ties into your blog subject I was wondering if I could get a signal boost from you.
I am wanting to write an informative blog post about how the asexuality intersects with the medical field, both from physiological and psychological fields, primarily in recommending ‘corrective therapy’ to people who ID as asexual or those who may fall under the spectrum. More details on what I am asking for is in the link. The post will be sharing stories on what other people have experienced and how to defend your asexuality to medical professionals who want to ‘treat’ you.
Since I went under this ‘corrective therapy’ for being asexual while still in denial about it, something I will elaborate on more in the big post, I am struggling to get more submissions from people who have experienced this. I really wish that it is because no one else has experienced this, but I unfortunately know better.
I really hope you help me get the word out on this project of mine; this is really important to me. I don’t want another person to have to go through what I did.If you do post this I request all information concerning this to be sent to my vaginismusandsexuality blog, not my main account.
Hi! My name is Billieanne and I’m a part of the blog team of I Will End Sexual Violence, a new editorial blog on Tumblr that came out of a social media campaign asking young people to commit to ending sexual violence in their communities.
We are looking for submissions from young people all over the world, telling their own stories of how sexual violence has impacted their lives. These stories can be a personal account, about an experience working in prevention or how the issue has affected their broader lives; we want a diversity of stories! Your submission doesn’t have to be a written post; it could also be an image, a short video, a drawing. Get creative!
We would love a submission from you or your followers! Here is everything you need to know about submitting:
Please send any questions you have here.
Thanks again and happy blogging!
In honor of me watching the newest Carrie film, a second conversation started of the day:
Send me your period or lack of sex education horror stories!
