Anal Sex Myths {De-Bunked}

It seems there are a lot of myths surrounding the topic of anal sex; it’s painful, men want it more than us women, women who love it are dirty. The list goes on and on, which leads to a misconception that the only people who love it are men having sex with men, and this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Anal sex is still somewhat of a taboo topic in mainstream conversation and, as far as I’m concerned, it’s not talked about enough. Which brings me to 5 anal sex myths (de-bunked):

Self-Pleasure 101

I’m a big fan of self-pleasure; I was fortunate enough to discover my ‘pleasure spot’ at a young age and haven’t looked back since. I feel truly blessed that masturbation feels natural and that making myself cum has always been relatively easy.

Over the years though, I have discovered many women who have had a rough trot with masturbation; stories of shame and guilt (often somewhat associated with religion, surprise surprise), of the inability to reach orgasm through self-pleasure and women who just don’t feel the desire to pleasure themselves at all. All of the above feelings are completely normal and, if they resonate with you, believe me; you are not alone.

Let's Talk About Lube

Ok Ladies and Gents, it’s time to talk about lube.  Yes, LUBE.  In my opinion lube, if using a good one and using it correctly, it can be a girl’s, and guy’s, best friend.

But I don’t need lubeeeeeeeeee”, I hear you scream.  Yeah well, here’s the thing; don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it because let’s face it, sometimes you need a little ‘kickstart’ down there to get things moving.  OR sometimes you don’t even want to get moving and believe it or not, a magic squirt of lube might be just the thing you’re needing to get you in the mood.

5 Things I Wish I Was Taught In High School Sex Ed

It seems, for most of us, that sex education in high school was either mediocre, or non-existent. For me, it was very mediocre. It consisted of an hour in a ‘Sex Education' van in the back of the school yard learning about how to put a condom on a banana.

These days, nothing much has changed; today’s youth are learning most of their sex education via friends, porn and online resources. As a result, many teens are moving into adulthood sexually misinformed, often experiencing less than satisfactory sex with themselves and others. I myself wish my sex education was more holistic; filled with the juicy fun stuff, with a bit of serious stuff thrown in for good measure.
