Is that a Magnet in Your Panties or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

Wednesday September 19, 2018

If you've been suffering from distressing menopause symptoms like hot flashes, and sleeplessness, there's a new cure for you - panty magnets!  Yes it's really that simple.   You don't have to chart your symptoms, go to doctors, visit menopause clinics, eat healthy, get more exercise or even consider HRT.  All you have to do is slap a magnet on panties and you'll feel better.  Who knew it was that simple?

I discovered the panty magnet - which is my flippant name for it, it's actually called a 'Ladycare Menopause Magnet' - when I opened an article on my Facebook about new must have gadgets.  Honestly, I think I'd get more use out of the toilet night light than this thing.

Gwyneth Finally Gets It for Goop

Wednesday September 5, 2018

It has finally happened, the day we've all been waiting for!  The website 'Goop', owned and operated by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, has been settled a lawsuit filed against it for making unsubstantiated health claims about the products it promotes.

Goop has been the bane of my, and several other sexual health educators, existence for several years now.  Paltrow's site positions itself as an authority on products and services that will improve your health and happiness.  She regularly features articles about sexual health and the are thinly veiled ads for products she sells on her site.  Most of them are rife with misinformation and many of the products are actually dangerous.  If you follow my blog, you'll know that I've commented on this many times including her bad information about lube, her hugely properly and downright dangerous jade eggs, and her completely questionable recommendation that we steam our vaginas.Platrow

Reminder: Don't Get Your Sexual Health Info from Cosmo

Thursday July 6, 2017

i found this little nugget in one of my newsfeeds today, forwarded from Cosmo Magazine's website.  "12 Anal Foreplay Tips for Beginners".  In my never-ending quest to correct sexual health misinformation everywhere, I thought I should take this one on.

Admittedly, Cosmo seems to be stepping up its game on the sex stuff.  I haven't seen as much horrible advice coming from them as I used to and occasionally now I see them being very inclusive of all genders and sexual preferences which used to never be the case.  This article is not an example of that.

Don't Put Those Eggs in Your Basket: Please Don't Put That Up There - Part Four

Friday March 10, 2017

Last year about this time, I did a series of posts about ridiculous things people were advising others to put in their vaginas - from steam, cannabis laced tampons, to teeny tiny tea bags.  It seemed like a trend to find new and exciting, and potentially very unsanitary and dangerous, things to put inside you.

I'd like to say this trend has died down but it hasn't.  It seems we just can't get away from people who want to tell us that our vaginas are a problem and they have a solution.

What's the latest thing you're supposed to stuff up inside you?  Jade eggs.
