    Supporting Military Survivors

    The conversation about sexual assault in the military has been vast and ongoing, especially over the past few months.

    For Adults, too.

    That’s right, toys can be for adults, too. Following on the heels of yesterday’s fundraiser at Bayside Bowl in Portland, we figured we’d toss you a post about toys. Today’s #30daysofSpeakAboutIt post is from Julia Bond of “It’s Not That Weird.” According to their site: It’s Not That Weird is an attitude that was born […]

    Campus SaVE: Is your school compliant?

    You’ve probably heard of the Campus SaVE Act if you’re a college student, someone active in the movement against sexual violence,  you actively read the Huffington Post, or a combination of all three.

    A Review from William and Mary

    Alright, it’s not really from the actual College, but it’s a darn close second: a Greek sorority leader. This short review of the program and subsequent impact was written after our performance at The College at the end of March.

    A Curator of Sex?

    You mean, you can be a professional sex curator? Apparently, this is not only a real job, but a pretty awesome one, too.

Police Scotland recently launched a campaign called We Can Stop It, which aims to educate and empower men about consent. Big, strong rugby guys are already pretty sexy, but big, strong rugby guys who ask for consent […]

There have been a handful of studies that have shown that having regular sex can reduce stress, help you sleep, alleviate menstrual cramps (you can sleep well knowing she won’t have to take 800mg of Ibuprofin), […]
