Sex blog: Let’s talk about sex, baby

The golden rule for sex is to always communicate. Of course, this is easier said than done, even if you feel completely at ease with whoever’s genitals you are fooling around with. Personal tastes are, well, personal, and there is a lot of stigma associated with many fetishes. Fear of rejection or ridicule is all too common, but I promise you it doesn’t have to be that way. Take no shame in your interests. Whether it’s BDSM, group sex, roleplay, anal play or literally anything ever, if it’s legal and consensual then it’s all good, baby bay-bay. Sure, others may not be into it, and that’s their prerogative—but you have the right to indulge in any consensual activity with whoever […]

Sex blog: Consent campaigns and the complexity of sex

Communication is the key to sex-cess (insert laughter/groaning here), and consent is a major component of communication. There has been a lot of talk about consent lately, which is great. Consent is a two-way street: sexual partners also have the responsibility to ask consent. You want to have sex and someone says no? Don’t have sex. Someone wants to have sex with you and you don’t?

While it’s great that more and more people are being informed about consent, I strongly believe these campaigns could do a better job of reflecting the diversity of sex. Consent is easy to define with a […]

Sex blog: Alternatives for when the bed keeps a-rockin’

Hearing your partner moaning in bed can be pretty hot. The bed itself moaning? Not so much. It’s a shame that financial and logistical constraints keep students from having access to well-oiled, solid-framed beds that are securely bolted to the floor away from walls. Until you have enough disposable income to invest in optimal sex furniture, you’ll probably have to deal with beds with varying levels of creakiness. And if you’re as paranoid about neighbours hearing too much as I am, unintended noise can be distracting. I’m all for exciting, loud rendez-vouses, and creaking sounds might not bug you—that’s cool, you do you (and whoever gives consent). Just remember that your roommates might not be down for the musical stylings […]

Blog: Flavoured Lube can be a tasty treat in the bedroom

Sexual activity of all stripes should always be a carnal funfest, but there’s no denying that sometimes sex doesn’t always go as smoothly as planned. Friction can be a major mood killer for all sexually active folks, and as awesome as it is to commingle bodily fluids with someone who finds you equally attractive, you may not always be digging the taste of your partner’s nether regions. Perhaps after a while, sex becomes a repetitive, predictable process devoid of exhilarating new sensations. This is where flavoured lube glides in to save the day. These bottles of sweet, slippery goodness have many uses, like making oral more fun to give and adding cool and slippery sensations. Flavoured lube is a great […]
