  • Sex Ed for Kids, Norwegian Style

    You all know how much sex education sucks in the U.S., right? If you don’t, this Last Week’s Tonight’s episode of John Oliver’s show gives a pretty good look into it. Things in much of Northern Europe are completely different. Sex education starts early and is quite comprehensive, access to condoms and birth control is easily accessible to everyone, and sexual health services are free. Guess what the outcomes are? The U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy, teen births, STIs among, and sexual shame all developed countries in the world; the Nordic countries have the lowest rates of all four. And now,

  • The Orgasm Gap, and How to Bridge It

    The orgasm gap between men and women is pretty staggering. Across a representative sample of Americans, for example, over 90% of men of all ages reported having an orgasm during their most recent partnered sex compared to only about 65% of women. Furthermore, while over 85% of men report orgasming often (more than 75% of the time) when having sex with a familiar partner, this was true for only half of heterosexual and bisexual women. A full fifth of women reported not orgasming ever or rarely (less than 25% of the time), compared to only 7% of the men. Lesbians

  • Are Open Relationships Right For You? (Webinar)

    Are you considering opening up your relationship, but aren’t sure if that’s the right choice for you? Heard about “polyamory,” “swinging,” or “monogamish,” but aren’t sure what they’re all about? These alternative relationship styles, often combined under the umbrella of consensual nonmonogamy (CNM), are coming out of the closet as more and more people begin to think outside the box when it comes to love and sex, and they have certain benefits over traditional monogamy, or the more common “nonconsensual nonmonogamy” AKA cheating. But CNM relationships aren’t for everyone, and they definitely come with their own set of risks and

What types of relationships are Americans having? A new study on Americans’ sexual #diversity sought to find out. As part of this study, researchers asked 1,420 partnered participants to indicate whether that #relationship was—during the past year—entirely #monogamous, monogamous but sexless, supposedly monogamous, an #openrelationship; or whether they had not discussed their relationship structure. In thinking about the past year, most of the participants reported being entirely monogamous (78%). More than 1 in 10 partnered respondents were currently in monogamous but sexless relationships (12%). Additionally, 4% were supposedly monogamous, 1.6% reported being in an open relationship, 2.5% had not discussed their relationship structure, and the remaining 1.4% identified their relationship in some other way. The takeaway? Despite growing representations in mainstream media of open relationships, the vast majority Americans are still wedded (pun intended) to #monogamy.
