Hey, everyone. [Smile]

I keep a running list of articles I know we need to do based on what everyone here seems to express, or exhibit clear gaps in information.

Often that's a big list, but lately we have been making a lot of headway with it, so as of right now, the things we have we're starting or finishing work on are:
- Foreskin basics
- A guide to choices with unintended pregnancy
- A piece about when sex is just a bummer
- A chart to go through the sexual effects of alcohol and other recreational substances
- How to stand up for yourself

Besides those, does anyone here have anything they've looked for from us on the website and have not found? Any pieces you'd like to suggest? If so, please go ahead and weigh in!

We may even already have what you're looking for (in which case, we'll direct you to that), but it's not like it's a big deal if you suggest something we already have.

Thanks for any feedback or ideas!

Not really adding something here that you don't already have - but just some feedback: I love the "Self-Care A la Carte" article. I actually have it bookmarked on my browser for quick reference! Anything on how to deal with stress in a healthy way, learn to take a deep breath and just take care of yourself is something I would like to read more about.

How about some kind of stressbusters series in the blog? Like, small pieces on things like how to do deep breathing, some yoga postures for stress relief, things we might be eating or drinking that can either increase stress or calm us down, etc?

I would love some more information related to kink or BDSM - something beyond just "is it okay to like this". Maybe some information about safety, or how to negotiate a sex life that includes those elements?

Jacob mentioned something on a thread a while ago about a Shy Guy's Guide to Ethical Dating or something like that - I think that'd be great!
