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

Porn is not the Problem

Tuesday February 6, 2018
This morning, I saw an article titled 'Conservative MP says underage access to porn is a key factor in #MeToo cases'.  It seems that at a press conference about the documentary on Sheldon Kennedy's experience of abuse, Alberta MP Arnold Viersen said that he believes that access to online porn is a major cause of the problem of sexual abuse.  As I would have expected, this sparked a lively social media debate, getting people all riled up about porn and what should or should not be done about it.  This, I believe, is exactly what Viersen, and other people who raise this issue, want.

Your Vagina is not a Disco Party - Please Don't Put That Up There: Part Five

Wednesday July 5, 2017

if you get glitter in your yoni, it will be there until the day you die.

My question is why????  Why would you want to do this?  The site says that "The flavor is sweet like candy but not overly sweet, just enough to make your lover feel that your Yara (water-lady or little butterfly) is what all vaginas are supposed to look, feel and taste like; soft, sweet and magical!" 

Thinking You Are Addicted to Porn is Far More Damaging than Porn Itself

Saturday May 20, 2017
Last week, I read this article by David Ley, that had me almost jumping out of my chair for joy.  It seems that finally somebody decided to study not the harm that pornography addiction causes, but the harm that thinking you are addicted to pornography causes.

A Brief History of Masturbation

Saturday April 29, 2017

Masturbation is normal, healthy, and universal, but it hasn't always been seen that way.  Throughout history, the way we look at this basic human activity has changed a lot. Here, in honor of Masturbation Month,  (pun intended) are some of the highlights, and lowlights, in masturbation history.
