Changing Her Name to “Sexy”

I live (and love) Ohio, and have written about some issues that have happened in my beloved state before. On my commute home, I heard a local radio show talking about someone Sexy. Well, she isn’t Sexy yet, but she is hoping to be. There is a woman named Sheila Crabtreewho lives in Licking (of course) county who is petitioning the court to legally change her name from “Sheila” to “Sexy.” Have you ever gone through a point where you disliked your first name?

Treat Yourself For Valentine’s Day

Instead of a list of some (probably great) gift ideas for a special sweetie or a post about trying to not feel lonely this Valentine’s Day, why not consider spending some quality time with one of the best people in your life – you! Spend a half an hour spoiling yourself or a whole day. So many people i know spend hours a day trying to please everyone around them that they don’t take time for themselves. This Valentine’s Day, I urge you to take some quality time out for you. Think about what makes you feel nice and appreciate yourself – whether it’s a nice bath while reading a magazine, eating crackers in bed, or even some self loving. Continue Reading →

What’s Your Condom Size?

Scrolling through the web the other day, I came across Condomsizer, which claims to be the “#1 Condom Size Resource on the Web.” Now, I can’t speak to whether or not is is the #1 size resource on the web, but I do think it is an excellent resource for learning about which condoms will fit you like a glove. Playing around on the site, I realized that it is aimed at those in Europe, so I decided to search to see what is available for those in the US. The Condom Size Calculator, located on Condom Monologues, and the Condom Size app are both targeted to US users. Growing up, I heard that if someone says a condom doesn’t fit them, they’re lying.

Let’s Go Into The Snowman’s Vagina

Clicking on Jezebel showed me yet another reason why Chicago is a wonderful city (that I don’t get to spend nearly enough time in) – a giant bouncy snowman that doubles as a bounce house. The best part is that to enter the snowman bounce house, you hop in through the snowman’s vagina. The snowman was originally posted on Chicago’s Navy Pier Winter Wonderfest website. Kate Dries notes on Jezebel that “this Snowman is clearly biologically a Snowoman.” Do you think kids pick up on the fact that canal to enter is a vaginal canal? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to head to Chicago pronto. Continue Reading →

I’m Just Not That Into You: Reasons For Turning Down A Second Date

Is there a bad reason to not go out on a second date? Blogger Anna Davies at Refinery 29 made me wonder if there are ridiculous reasons out there. In her piece, ten different readers listed a reason why they had decided that one date was enough (or in some cases, more than enough). I know from personal experience that sometimes you’re just not meant to be with a person – maybe on that first date you just don’t click romantically or after one date you are rather irritated and just can’t imagine spending one more cup of coffee with that person (sorry, Ron). One person in the article simply says, “he said he hated yoga.” Continue Reading →

Call Of (Female) Duty

I won’t claim to be anywhere near an expert player of Call Of Duty (now Tetris is another story – I have yet to have a friend beat me at that). However, a few of my friends are huge fans of the game, and as such I’ve learned a little bit about it. I like that you can customize some of your weapons (I love the cherry blossom print guns), but did wonder why there are only minimal options for the soldiers themselves? One problem I had with the soldier options were that they were all male – but that’s soon going to change! When the latest version is released this month (Call of Duty Ghosts) players will have the option to choose the gender of their soldier. Continue Reading →

On OkCupid, Cheating Women Win

Not having as much luck as you’d like with online dating? I definitely had some issues when I went with online dating, especially OkCupid. Time’s Newsfeed reported that on OkCupid, women who are cheaters tend to get the most messages, and men who are cheaters rule amongst male users of the site. Mind you, this is a rather small sample group of 40 (fake) profiles so anyone who is intrigued by this study should take that into consideration. Image courtesy of Chris Matyszczyk/CNET

The study was done by Recovery.org ,and Chris Matyszczyk reported the results on CNET. Eighty percent of the male cheaters’ inboxes messages weren’t necessarily someone looking for love. Continue Reading →

My Name is Strong: Raising Awareness About Gender-Based Violence Through Art

I was made aware of a creative new anti-violence initiative and awareness campaign called My Name Is Strong through a volunteer job. The description instantly caught my attention: “our commitment is to turn a single room into an overpowering exhibit of human strength.” My Name Is Strong aims to empower all individuals who have been impacted by gender-based violence through creative expression. The campaign isn’t just for survivors, but anyone who has been impacted by rape, harassment, sexual assault, etc. My Name Is Strong is based out of St Louis, Missouri and you can view submissions on their Facebook page.

Keeping Things Clean

A good friend of mine posted a link to an article Keeping It Clean: Top Tips For Sex Toy Sanitation on Facebook a few days ago. There are plenty of articles on MSP about sex toys and fantastic sex toy reviews, but many people overlook cleaning their toys properly. As kids, most of us are taught to put our toys away when we’re done with them. It’s fairly easy to toss a toy in a drawer when you’re done, but after you’ve had some lovely play time, the first thing on your mind may not be “I should get up and sanitize this – I feel so much better when things are clean!” The article emphasizes that if toys aren’t clean (or cleaned properly), bacteria and “other nasty things” can linger – which means they can hang out and meet back up with your body later.
