Lovaah (Oy)

Tell Me More! Why Do We Overshare?

In an interesting essay in the Sydney Morning Herald, Emily Maguire argues that not only have we lost our capacity for discretion, we resent it. Is oversharing the new etiquette? » 1/07/09 3:40pm 1/07/09 3:40pm

The Sexist Business Of Sex Writing

I'm pissed. It's an anger that's been on a slow boil that's beginning to bubble over, and at this point, there's no putting a lid on it. I've been writing about sex on a pretty public platform for some time now, at first anonymously, and then under my real name. I've had to endure ignorant assumptions and cheap shots… » 5/07/08 5:00pm 5/07/08 5:00pm

The Really Unmentionable: A Back-Door Banging Primer & Poll

When Pillhead IM'd me a couple of days ago to ask for a comment for her fabulous piece (no pun intended), it got me thinking about that idiot guy and his fascination/obsession with anal sex.

Hymens: The New Old Chastity Belts?

This post from Feministing last week notes that there's an abstinence logo out there comparing one's virginity (and, by extension, one's hymen) to a diamond. You may be saying to yourself, hymens are easy to break, and hence not at all diamond-like! Well, please, let me be perhaps the first to inform you of how very,… » 10/29/07 1:30pm 10/29/07 1:30pm

Celebrity Diets: So Crazy They Just Might Work?

The Nuances and Complexities of Digestion

There's something that's been bothering me—and womankind in general, I suspect—for quite some time: my bowels. (Between this and the pubic rumination, I suppose it's increasingly clear that I'm going to be the gross, TMI guest editor, as opposed to the gross, TMI regular editors.) » 8/10/07 2:35pm 8/10/07 2:35pm
