It’s that time, Fangirls! Time to enlighten ourselves about STDs and how they seem so big, bad, and ugly but that we can fight them with the power of awareness.

Oh 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 »
I recently got into a heated discussion about things related to HPV, Fangirls, and it reminded me how important of an STD it is to talk about. When we think about sexually transmitted infections or diseases, HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, seems to be overlooked much too often. That has to change for a laundry list of reasons, friends.
