Jesus Freak: It Isn’t Wrong To Masturbate

Jesus Freak: It Isn’t Wrong To Masturbate

Sex is a HOT topic in the Christian community, to put it lightly. Again, my perspective doesn’t encompass all churches and all denominations, but I have “gotten around” in the Christian circle. I think it’s fair to say that many, many people in the Christian community believe sex and especially masturbation to be wrong—in a certain context, outside of marriage. More »

Like This Couple From Delaware, I Would Also Like To Have Sex On The Roof Of A Chipotle

If you say you don’t love Chipotle so much that you wouldn’t have sex on the roof of one then you are totally lying to me, because Chipotle means a lot more than just casual Mexican food to go and pretty decent tortilla chips, it also means SEXY TIME. At least it does according to this couple who were busted getting busy on the roof of a Chipotle located in Newark, Delaware. More »

10 Ways To Spice Up Your Marriage As A Sex-Deprived Parent

10 Ways To Spice Up Your Marriage As A Sex-Deprived Parent

I can fully endorse the fact that it’s really hard to find time to have sex as a new parent. And as a not-so-new parent. And even as an older parent, I assume. In case you haven’t heard, parenting is a massive time-suck and libido-drain. Having kids is the highlight of my life, but this joyous endeavor takes up 24 hours of the day. Once you beg and plead for your infant children to start sleeping through the night, you’re so exhausted by 7 PM that all you want to do is watch Netflix on your laptop with one eye open and then go to sleep.

10 Reasons Pregnant Sex Sucks

10 Reasons Pregnant Sex Sucks

Pregnant sex was one of my least favorite things. Sure, my husband and I managed to keep things regular throughout both of my pregnancies, and we generally had a good time. But in retrospect, sex after the baby was made was far less fun than the sex that made the baby in the first place. More »

Baby Fat: I Need A Vacation…. From Getting Pregnant

 Baby Fat: I Need A Vacation…. From Getting Pregnant

So a “vacation from getting pregnant” is a great idea if you’ve been at this for a little awhile. You don’t necessarily have to go anywhere either if that’s too hard. But just putting a designated mental “timeout” on the process can be healthy for everyone involved. Even just for a few days. It’s easy to get tunnel vision about this and sometimes it’s just nice to get back in touch with the person you were, before you were the person trying to get pregnant.

Dear Mommyish: Pregnant Women Are Not Sexy

Dear Mommyish: Pregnant Women Are Not Sexy

I am sure that all men would rather have sex with their non-pregnant wives versus their pregnant wives. Nonetheless, Facebook is filled with many of my friends posing nude with a sheet covering their private parts while they are fully pregnant. Is nothing sacred? We can sexualize almost anything and anyone in our 21st day and age, but nothing is going to make a pregnant woman sexy. More »

My Daughter Is Worth Way More Than Her Virginity

My Daughter Is Worth Way More Than Her Virginity

Being a woman seemed to come with rules, even when I was small. Most of it hinged on being a ‘lady’. You know, “Ladies don’t run in the hallway. Ladies don’t climb the monkey bars. Ladies don’t get their clothes dirty. Ladies don’t fart at the dinner table.” I always thought that as I got older, I’d have fewer rules. Instead, more came. And these rules seemed to be hinged on just one idea.

You’ll get a reputation. More »

The Day I Got Busted Buying A Sex Toy As A Teenager: A Cautionary Tale

The Day I Got Busted Buying A Sex Toy As A Teenager: A Cautionary Tale

It was the night before we all left for college. I was with my three closest girlfriends, and we were looking for something to do that would capture the gravity of our last night together. We didn’t want to drink, because we wanted to remember the night, but we were bored and wanted to do something different besides watch music videos on MTV like usual-so we decided to go to a sex shop.

Baby Fat: 3 Things That F Up When You Are F’ing To Make A Baby

 Baby Fat: 3 Things That F Up When You Are F'ing To Make A Baby

Once you are trying to conceive, the mental list of times and places that you have absolutely zero desire to have sex seems to grow. For example, after a very long day of work. Or after a very long night of drinking. Or after a very long day of day drinking. You quickly find yourself scheduling sex with your husband like you would a dental appointment. Because we all know there is a narrow window and I’ll be damned if I can’t tell my gynecologist with certainty that “Yes, we are timing our intercourse!” More »
