Let’s Talk About: Going to the Gynecologist

gynoIt’s certainly not everyone’s favorite topic or time of year, but it is a very important one. When it comes to writing these sexy articles, I like to think that I understand what I’m writing about pretty well, and that I’m sharing what I know & believe with you.

Let’s Talk About: Porn

pornOh boy, Fangirls, the day has come. I’ve wanted to talk about porn for a long time but have never worked up the nerve. It’s a hot button topic in the world of sex, and everywhere else. I didn’t know which angle to approach it from, exactly what to say, or how to represent all the different perspectives out there. But I decided to face all the uncertainty and write the article anyway. Read More »
