Our Favorite Scientist Presents: The Sexual Spectrum

In the recent Santa Cruz heat, it's almost felt too hot to move. I've spent many days off work holed up in my house, trying not to melt all over the room and cause a mess. For those days when you are too sweaty and icky to move, Netflix is a godsend! In my Netflix travels, I discovered that Bill Nye's latest TV project has come to life! Enter Bill Nye Saves the World. Aimed at a more varied and adult audience than his earlier project, Bill Nye Saves The World retains every bit of his old-school campiness and charm. So what's this got to do...

Cliteracy is "the state of being cliterate, especially the ability to navigate the clitoris based on an understanding that it is fundamental to the female orgasm."  It is also "the applied knowledge that female orgasms are not happenstance, rather they are easily and predictably created with a basic understanding of female sexual anatomy."

Is the G-Spot Real?

Posted by Amy Baldwin on

Threedukes Asks: Recently, there was a report declaring the "G-Spot" does not exist (http://huff.to/yunJDV).  The article quotes a doctor as saying "Without a doubt, a discreet anatomic entity called the G-spot does not exist." So this is a fun game.  Learn about it but not where.  Then learn where but can't reach it.  Learn the original location was wrong, find new location.  Find new location, girlfriend loves it, and now we have this doctor telling us we didn't find it.  Who knew being a straight guy could be so confusing?!  :-D So while I'll keep doing what I am doing...

HeyFatChick and SlutWalk

Posted by Amy Baldwin on

2 things you ABSOLUTELY must check out: A. http://heyfatchick.tumblr.com/ (just because it's an awesome site dedicated to real, curvy women) B. SlutWalk (websites differ depending on your area) This picture would have come in handy during one very charged Facebook debate after I re-posted the following quote (via hiohmegan on tumblr) last May: Anyone talking is asking to be interrupted. Anyone carrying money is asking to be robbed. Anyone eating is asking to choke. Anyone drinking is asking to be drugged. Anyone walking is asking to be tripped. Anyone with a face is asking to be punched. Anyone with a...
