Green Sexuality: Is The Ecology Of Love A Fad Or The Future Of Sex?

sustainable

"Mother Earth doesn’t need us to survive, but we sure do need her. Better make sure she comes first." That tagline sums up my understanding of eco-sexuality in an organic nutshell, though my experience thus far is that even many die-hard greenies toss their dirt laden hands in the air when you mention making love sustainable. If tree-huggers are bemused, what about the rest of us mainstream recyclers? My friend Wendy Strgar is in the business of creating sustainable relationships (she’s the founder of GoodCleanLove.com – lotions and potions and adult toys that are good for you and the planet; in other words, she purveys sexy and safe fun). From her I realized that sustainability in the bedroom is an inside job.

CLITeracy 101: What I Wish I'd Have Learned About My Body Years Ago

Did you know that only female mammals have a clitoris; an organ with one singular purpose? That purpose is your pleasure, made possible in part by the 8,000 nerve endings, twice that of the average penis, innervating the female fun button.

Women, Hold Your Men In The Paterno Fallout

joe paterno

I like to write about sex but lately I’ve been more taken with the gender-related power issues that swirl around sex in our society. Why? Because I think one of the reasons it’s so hard for women to own their sexuality is because of the way sex has been used to keep us out of our power. I’m not going to go into a rant about that here because (a) I’m tired of all that blaming and (b) you’ve heard it all before. But there is a shift in our world going on around men, women, sex, and power and it may be about to hit your father, husband, partner, sons and lots of guys you work with.

The Private Hell of Pain With Sex

pain with sex

For over a decade after losing my virginity at twenty, I suffered from painful sex (dyspareunia). Although my body would lie there, feeling like I was getting stabbed with a knife while being rubbed raw with sandpaper and having acid poured on my wounds, the rest of me would go running for the hills every time I saw a penis coming my way. I literally dissociated from my body during all those years of painful sex that led to the disintegration of my marriage.

Predictors Of A Cheating Partner


cheating behavior

Wouldn’t it be great if we could predict if our lovers/spouses were likely to be unfaithful? Maybe we could track warning signs from the get-go and avoid the heartbreak most of us have experienced at some point or other in our lives.

Of course, it’s never that easy, but a new study identifies traits that make people more likely to cheat.

This One Facial Feature May Predict Your Vaginal Orgasm

pout

Can you tell whether a woman is capable of having vaginal orgasms just by observing her from a distance? Research says maybe so.

Sex researcher Stuart Brody, a Scottish psychology professor, linked a woman’s finger sensitivity to her sexual behavior. He also found, in this study, that a woman’s gait - “fluid, graceful,” and “free of blocked or distorted pelvic rotation” – means she’s more likely to have vaginal orgasms.

Green Sexuality: The Fundamentals of Eco-Sex

The emerging field of ecosexuality takes cues from many viewpoints and philosophies. There are the practical aspects, like using eco-friendly lubrication, or eating the right sort of foods. Equally important to the fundamentals of ecosexuality is the idea of consciousness; that every choice we make has an impact on the planet and ourselves. In order for humanity to birth itself to the next level of awareness, we must visualize a future that is compatible with the values of love and peace, sexual healing and freedom, and global planetary stewardship.

The Art of Receiving Pleasure

“There is a secret about human love that is commonly overlooked: Receiving it is much more scary and threatening than giving it. How many times in your life have you been unable to let in someone’s love or even pushed it away? Much as we proclaim the wish to be truly loved, we are often afraid of that, and so find it difficult to open to love or let it all the way in.” –John Welwood

The Orgasm Gap: Are Women Faking It?

Remember the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally?  Harry swears that all his girlfriends are having O-O-Orgasms during sex and Sally questions his bravado. She wonders how he’s so sure his girlfriends aren't just faking it. He insists he would know. Sally then delivers an orgasmic performance that made cinematic history. 

Oh - oh- oh yeah, baby.
