STD Spotlight: Hepatitis B

hepbOn our journey through commonly sexually transmitted diseases, what they mean, what to do about them, and how to prevent them, we land at Hepatitis B. Hep B is a typically overlooked STD, most likely because it’s placed in a whole separate category with it’s counterparts A & C, and because it’s symptoms are quite different from the more “typical” seeming infections. However, Hepatitis, especially strain B, is a very common infection spread through unprotected sex play. Luckily, it’s also very avoidable. Read More »

Appdicted: Studious

IMG_4781I’m going back to school, Fangirls. I graduated high school with no desire to go to college, but still attempted to because that’s what I was “supposed to do”. I quickly left without even finishing one semester, and have spent the last three years working. Now, after finding a direction in my life, I’ve decided to give it the ol’ college try. Hah. But of course, I need some help getting back into the groove of class, exams, and homework. That’s where the Studious app comes in. Read More »

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. It’s important for me to be “walking the talk” with the things I discuss. However, when it comes to the OB/GYN, I’m a big ol’ hypocrite. However, I’m not ashamed to admit that. When it comes to sex, we all have things that we’re uncomfortable or nervous about, and that doesn’t exclude me. So, together, we’re going to research and walk through all of the going to the gyno know-how, and all feel a bit better about it. Read More »

On: Ancestry

Nora's_ShipSince I was a child, I’ve been trying to pull out as much information about my family as I could from my parents. I’ve always felt a sense of importance about it. When I got to that age when you realize your parents do not know the answer to every question, things slowed down. Until a few months ago, I wasn’t taking in much in the way of new information. Now, it’s coming in waves. Huge, overwhelming, fucking fantastic waves. Read More »

Feminerd: White Feminism

whiteI think it may be an unfortunate testament to my race that I only first heard this term a week ago. However, contrary to how it appears, white feminism isn’t about being white. I’m white, but I’m not going to get defensive, it doesn’t apply to me. I know where I stand. But we’ll address that point later. White feminism is all too familiar to all of us, even if we don’t realize it, and it makes it a lot more difficult for equality to be achieved at any level. Read More »

Nerds Gotta Eat: Healthy Grubbin’

IMG_4689Over the last few months, I’ve felt a lot more like Killer Croc than Wonder Woman, Fangirls. My weight has never bothered me much, my only concern has always just been eating healthy. Over the last year or so, though, I started to get in the habit of slipping up on my usual healthy ways. So, I’ve overhauled my snack drawer, and filled my fridge with goodies fit for a Amazonian babe. However, it’s certainly not always easy, fast, or cheap to eat healthy. But I’ve hacked my way into a lifestyle of healthy, simple eating. Read More »

Appdicted: Sim City BuildIt

image2 (6)The last time I played a Sim City game, it was on a giant IBM desktop that had dial up. Now it’s returned, but to the small screen. This new game is much different, much more accessible, and honestly a lot more fun. I remember meandering around, trying to figure out exactly how to play when I was a kid. With this app, I got easily down to business right away, and build a thriving town. Read More »
