Sex Ed

Oh my god guys, we got a letter! Hi! I’m a poly cis-dude dating two lovely women at the moment. One of them, who for the sake of clarity, I’ll call my secondary, is HSV-1 positive. Of course, she disclosed to me right away before anything ever happened between us. My problem/question is this: My primary partner (who we also […]


IUD Rundown Part II

by Lady Perv on February 16, 2011

in Advice,Cervices,Contraceptives,Nurse Nerd,Sex Ed

Dear Lady Perv, Are there any issues with the IUD and a solid deep-dicking? I just keep imagining it (a) poking some unfortunate swain or (b) getting dislodged during a particularly vigorous episode of sexing. Eh? Also, with the spotting, for how long? Weeks? Months? Inquiring minds want to know. Love, Redd Dearest Redd, Yeah, […]


Lady Perv’s IUD Rundown

in Cervices,Contraceptives,Sex Ed

Man, it is really disappointing and disconcerting how much misinformation there is about the IUD . Healthcare providers are still telling patients who ask about them that IUDs are only for women who have had children and that they cause pelvic inflammatory disease. I thought that maybe this was because these are older providers who […]


Going Viral

Sexually Oriented‘s last post on squirting mentioned cervical surgery, which brought me back to my old friend, HPV! So, not to be totally unsexy here, but I love talking about HPV, because I know it can be extremely confusing. I have done a lot of reading and obsessing over HPV, having had my own slightly […]

Am I Normal?

Honkey was subbing at a high school today, and related this anecdote about his day: One of the girls in my class today marched in late and, when someone asked where she had been, loudly announced that she’d been having sex in the bathroom. I pretended not to have heard her. Because… how am I […]


Money in the Bag

So, this video just totally cracks me up. But it also makes me think about sex ed in schools! And since I have way too much to say about abstinence-only education (SO ANGRY!!), and I really should be studying lady bits for my final on Tuesday, I’m just going to post the video for your […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about pros and cons of hormonal contraception lately. OK, not just lately; I have a pretty longstanding relationship with The Pill. I was on various birth control pills for 13 years, and never had a complaint. I was really good at taking the pill at roughly the same time every […]

Sugar sugar

in Bad Ideas,Sex Ed,Vaginae

OK. You guys. You know better than to purposely insert sugar into your or anyone else’s vagina, right? Because Atlanta’s Real Housewives somehow missed the memo. I was watching The Soup, and the glorious “Clip of the Week” was a group of grown women discussing how to make one’s vagina taste “delicious.” WHAT? WHYYYY??? OK. […]


Oh boy. Yesterday we had our sexuality lecture in my Comprehensive Women’s Health class. We started with a discussion about how most of us feel pretty comfortable asking questions about our patients’ sex lives, but that we don’t always know what to do with the answers we get. One of my classmates told us that […]


Gross Stuff

I had a patient the other day who said the phrase, “I don’t do oral or any of that gross stuff.” It took a lot for me to control my facial expression and not display my blend of horror and confusion. Obviously, it’s fine for people to be grossed out by whatever they’re grossed out […]
