PRIDE and Punishment

PRIDE and Punishment

Pip Jones pushed the protest signs aside to clear space, hearing the poster board and plastic handles hit the floor with a clatter, before she hopped up on the table. Leaning down to bite Cora Jameson’s bottom lip, Pip wrapped her long, pecan-colored legs around Cora’s bared, aspen-shaded waist. Pip smiled against the shorter woman’s lips when Cora’s hands moved higher up her thighs, lifting her skirt with them. “Rainbow panties?” Cora laughed and brushed her finger against the brightly colored satin. Pip shrugged and arched into the touch. “Well, it is PRIDE.” Her breath hitched when Cora’s finger dipped beneath her panties’ elastic hem. “The most wonderful time of the year.”  “Not so much this year.”  Pip straightened a...

Society's Obsession with Penetrative Sex is Messing with our Orgasms

Society's Obsession with Penetrative Sex is Messing with our Orgasms

By Kesiena Boom Sex has a myriad of configurations–that’s part of what makes it so endlessly entertaining, right?

A Guide to Strap-Ons

From the moon landing to the summiting of K-2, history is replete with examples of when human ambition refused to be cowed by the ostensible limits of nature.  Strap-ons are but one more fantastic instance of this, as they allow people otherwise unable to engage in hands-free penetrative sex to enjoy its many pleasures.  Most people think that strap-ons are uniquely the province of the lesbian community, but in fact they can be used by people of all genders and orientations.  Recently, for instance, “pegging” (when a woman uses a strap-on to have anal sex with a man) has gained significant traction cultural awareness-wise, to the point of being featured in mainstream television and film (lookin at you, Broad City). ...

LGBTQ+ Bangers to Blast This Month

LGBTQ+ Bangers to Blast This Month

Some of the best songs of all time, TBH. “Vogue” by Madonna This power anthem was inspired by voguing, a dance created and popularized in the underground gay club scene back in the early 90s. Madonna calls for everyone to groove to the music however you want because it doesn’t matter who you are, hunny! “True Trans Soul Rebel” by Against Me! Before Against Me!’s lead singer, Laura Jane Grace, came out as transgender, “True Trans Soul Rebel” was already a fist-bumping anthem for trans individuals facing discrimination.  A true protest song, “True Trans Soul Rebel” offers solidarity and the idea that the struggle for justice is a shared one.  “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls Oh c’mon, I...
