The vagina and the eye are self cleaning.
What does that mean?
Much like the eye, you don’t need to put soap in it! Often times people believe the vagina to be ‘dirty’ or ‘smelly’ and necessitates cleaning with soap and water, however this is entirely counterproductive….
Ever wonder why areolas, the dark area around the nipple, have little bumps? So have scientists. And when scientists wonder something, they get to finding out.
Turns out that the bumps might have something to do with helping newborns smell their way towards their…
did you know you can’t “POP your cherry”? In this video i talk about:
what the hymen really is
how this myth is some sexist bullshit
and how to deal with your hymen the 1st time you have sex.
Woah, this girl is my new hero.
Great information about virginity and the role the gender plays in the way we construct virginity from the consistently informative Laci Green (no relation to the best of my knowledge).
Ah when she starts saying “people with or without vagina“‘s and stuff instead of just “girls” and/or “women”! ◠ω◠
I’ve tried to explain this to a lot of people/how it’s not supposed to hurt when you have vaginal sex. I always thought people with vaginas/vulvas were told that it would hurt to discourage them from having sex.
On another note, Laci is so adorable ◠ω◠
So I made these super cool little info cards to hand out at a talk at my college tomorrow about abortion! Thought I would share with tumblr because I think they’re neat (and helpful).
I think this is great, just wish it had more inclusive language (people of all genders who can get pregnant receive abortions).
In honor of STD Awareness Month, we’ve decided this Method Monday to feature the only method of birth control available on the U.S. market that protects against both pregnancy and STDs (a.k.a. STIs). You know it, you love it, you probably think of it every time you hear the…
Look at this and guess what it is (hint—it’s not a penguin, it’s not a banana peel, and it’s not a flower).
Have you guessed yet? Seriously, guess.
“I want to get that image out,” says Seattle artist Lynn Schirmer. She was sitting in her loft in the Tashiro Kaplan Building the other day, drinking tea. “I want everybody everywhere to know what that shape is.”
That shape is a human clitoris. If what you see when you close your eyes and picture a clitoris is merely a nubby button, then (A) you are normal, and (B) you are wrong. The nubby button is connected to a neck the size of the first joint of your thumb, and stretching from that neck are two arms that flare like a wishbone—arms that can be as long as three-and-a-half inches. The two bulbs that also extend from the center, which make the clitoris look like a penguin, were thought to belong to the vagina until recently. In the 1990s, Australian urologist Helen O’Connell “initiated the mainstream medical profession’s rediscovery” of the clitoris, Schirmer says, “and it took until just a few years ago to see it fully mapped via MRI and other noninvasive imaging technologies.” The result? The discovery that the clitoris has 10 times more erectile tissue than anatomy textbooks or the illustrations at the doctor’s office show.

Leaving your tongue soft and jaw relaxed, try licking her from vaginal entrance up to her clit and following the outer edges of her vagina along both sides. Repeating this technique going up and down and vice versa can be a great opener.
