Hey! You’re a blogger that I admire and I’m hoping you can help me out- my sister is conducting research about couples who have been together for 6 months or more and how distance has affected them (the couple doesn’t have to be long-distance though!). She’s roped me into helping recruit participants and that’s where you come in! I’m wondering if you can publish this link and encourage people in a 6-month or longer relationship to take it! Taking the survey puts you into a draw for a $25 visa giftcard, it only takes about 20 minutes and I’ll be forever indebted to you! :)
If you like, I can send you the results of the study afterward as well!
Fuck yeah! Microdicks are awesome!
Hi, I recently created this blog to raise awareness of and educate the public about micropenises, and to promote the idea that having a micropenis is nothing one needs to be ashamed of:
Could you help me promote it and spread the word?
FYSE: This looks like it’s just for men with micropenises (don’t know if this includes transmen) and doesn’t include women or intersex conditions but it’s nice to see some other body positive sites than just the vulva and breast ones I know of
I run the tumblr vaginismusandsexuality. I saw a while ago a doctor posting vaginismus articles on tumblr, so naturally I was interested and tore into the articles especially at the part where vaginismus has a 100% cure rate (we all know nothing in medical is ever 100%)
I sent this doctor a message saying how I have personally done every treatment available to me and still have not responded to anything. I simply wanted to be acknowledged that I exist. Instead of acknowledging that my experiences are real, he goes on to say how vaginismus is 100% treatable I am totally treatable IN SEVEN DAYS at his clinic in Turkey, which in living in the USA kinda makes it impossible.
He is not the only doctor that says this sort of damaging stuff. It’s actions like this by medical professionals that make people like me really angry and depressed. I just simply wanted to be acknowledged that my experiences and my situation is real, but instead I get offered “BUT YOU DIDN’T TRY TRAVELING HALF WAY ACROSS THE WORLD TO MEET ME, THE ONLY DOCTOR IN THE WORLD WHO CAN CURE YOU IN SEVEN DAYS!!!” For years I battled depression brought on by this 100% cure rate lie and…I just want to be acknowledged that I exist and that my experiences are real. Is that so hard? It hurts so much to type this, but you dealing with sexual issues I feel it is so important for other women to know that the 100% cure rate is a lie and their experiences are not invalid just because they have not literally traveled half way across the world to apparently see the only doctor ever to cure them.
FYSE: I had to comment because I have several chronic illnesses so I’ve gone through similar experiences with quacks who really just want to profit off of my conditions. People have told me everything from diet change to yoga to exercise to certain herbals will “cure” me but it’s not going to happen. There are so many people who profit off of other people’s pain and the unbearable drive to get rid of that pain. Especially when it’s so difficult to get acknowledgement and people telling you your conditions are all in your head, it can feel totally hopeless and you would do anything to feel better, even if it involves spending all of your money to see a doctor half way around the world. This should not be happening. People should not be profiting off of this.
This is a really important project supporting survivors of domestic violence through body-positive movement and performance. It’s being organized by two recent college grads, and they need to raise another $800 by the end of the day on Monday (9/30) or else they don’t get funded at all. Any donations or signal boosting would be super helpful and appreciated!
Hello everyone, I am conducting primary research about sexual education experiences, including which topics have been covered, and how prepared the classes/programs made you feel for sexual activity. The survey also includes a few questions on the teaching LGBTQAI acceptance and consent. Please if you have a moment, I would very much appreciate your input!
With the power western society gives an adult over a child, I do not believe sex between the two can ever be 100% consensual. However I feel it is in every parent’s best interest to assume their child is a sexual being and to teach their child appropriate sexual behaviour.
I’m not so much talking about sex between adults and children, it was simply the relation of the post that brought me here. But children will tend to be exploring their sexuality, earlier than parents are willing to believe, without the guidance and knowledge to do it safely.
FYSE: In regards to This Post not only did the situation of Cherice Morales have to do with a child and an adult, it was a teacher and a student. With both there is an uneven power structure. You feel a certain amount of respect for students, coaches, and other people put in a leadership position. You’re told you’re supposed to obey them and you trust them. I’ve had so many friends who were abused by adults who were in a position of power.
I think part of sex education has to be education about grooming, power structures, consent, and boundaries. I think we need to equip our children and teens with the tools to see abusers for what they are and we need to give them resources where they can get help when they can’t get help from their family. As a country we need to take abuse much more seriously than we do. As a society we need to stop sexualizing young girls and having this lie of Lolita.
Yes, young people do need to be able to explore their sexuality and need to be taught that sex isn’t wrong, but there’s a huge difference between acknowledging that youths are sexual and sexualizing youths. We’ve made it into a normalized fetish in our society with school girl uniforms and older men cruising to pick up young teens being a common theme in a lot of our media. We make these young people into sex objects, it’s about the men’s sexual pleasure and has nothing to do with giving power to young people. We need to give them that power. That power that they can say no and they can get help and they can know what the hell is going on in their lives. They are taught that rape is violent so they don’t know what to do when it’s not. They’re taught that rapists are horrible people but aren’t taught that abusers can be nice and can be people that you may even love or trust. We’re teaching our children that they deserve to be raped. We’re taking the sexual power away from our children by both denying that they are sexual beings and also barraging them with all of these anti-consent messages from rape culture. At such a young age we start teaching children to “respect their elders” and to be nice and polite without teaching them that some adults will take advantage of them. As a society we need to wake up and see how prevalent child abuse is and start protecting our children instead of trying to hide information away from them.
Only at that point will young people be able to experiment with their sexuality in a healthy environment.

Submission: Safer Sex and Young FAAB Dykes/Queers
Can lesbians really contract STIs? Do trans guys who only have sex with cis women really have to use barriers? Does anyone actually use dental dams? Do they work?
To be clear: this confusion about how and why to have safer sex is not because of those sexist tropes that “lesbian sex” or vulvas and vaginas are so goddamn confusing. It’s because safer sex between two people with vulvas is so rarely discussed. […]
When I first learned about safer lesbian sex as a teenager, it seemed like this highly esoteric practice. None of my early lovers knew about it and I couldn’t imagine how to bring it up. When I read about women using gloves and dams, they were always a lot older and more sexually experienced than me. Gloves and dental dams felt more like props for sexual roleplay than actual safety devices.
