Things are heating up fast as we shift seasons. And, unless you’re already accustomed to the heat you may not be able to handle too much physical touch during the summer months when things are already so hot and sticky – never mind your love language.

It's been nearly half a year since the series finale of Insecureaired, and I'm still not over it.

The Issa Rae-created show offered a complex look into the normal lives of Black millennial women navigating adulthood.

The topic of women and orgasm is often discussed and it’s mostly because they don’t happen often when, in reality, they should be! However, many factors work against women including society’s centering on male pleasure and penis people with antiquated rhetoric that implies women are meant to provide pleasure – not to receive it.

There are two constant questions in life: when/where is the next trip and how can our sex lives get even better?

Sexual health means a wealth of things. Yes, it for sure means getting tested both with and without your partner as a preventative measure for screening, treating, and managing the spread of sexually transmitted infections. However, sexual health is also pleasure. Period. And it’s also practicing safe sex in all the ways, including utilizing products like lube and, per our agenda today, a toy cleaner.
