Finding an OBGyn to diagnose me with Vulvodynia was hard. Here's what I recommend for you.
2017 was an interesting year for women's bodies, especially for those of us in the Sexual Education field. Not only has there been a lot of discussion about women's health in the political arena, researchers have decided to rename one of our favorite body parts: the G-Spot. What Is The G-Spot The G-Spot, or Gräfenberg Spot, [...]
A few years ago I a friend told me about THC / CBD Lubricant. I've been trying to get my hands on it ever since. I have found that smoking before sex has a myriad of benefits -- it relaxes my body (which gets even more tense with sex), especially the muscles of my vulva, [...]
My own pain is ignorable - a partner's pain is not.
I had a breakthrough with my sex therapist last week. It was such a breakthrough that I honestly didn't see it coming -- and usually I have at least some sort of warning. She's been having me do Sensate Touch Therapy. This is a method that returns the mind to the body. For someone like [...]

I'm grumpy. I'm upset. Everything generally sucks right now. Except that it doesn't. It's all mindset, but I can't seem to get around it. In a few hours I'm going to see a Sex Therapist for the first time. I cry at the OBGyn (and generally have road rage on the drive over) so I'm [...]
Think back to the first time you had sex. You were probably nervous. You probably did it with someone you had some kind of trust with because you didn't know how it would go and wanted to feel safe enough to say something. It was emotional, weird, maybe a bit scary, but also exciting, fresh, [...]
I visited the OBGyn, today. I didn't realize why I was so aggravated at the other drivers until I was already there and near tears in the exam room. I didn't have an exam this time, but I wish I had (bear with me). An exam would have been done had I felt any change [...]
