I just wanted to direct your attention to a couple new pieces on the main site as they are questions and issues we've had asked about a lot on the boards, too.

For those wondering what type of condom to use, we've now got this to help you out: Your Map to the Condom Aisle.

For those asking about abortion, how it works, what it's like, and other related issues, here's: All About Abortion.

For guys in male-female partnerships asking about their repro rights and options, take a look at: Hey, Boyfriend! Male Reproductive Choices.

For tjose asking about reciprocity issues, Reciprocity, Reloaded.

For those still wondering what on earth we mean when we talk about feminist sex education, here's What is Feminist Sex Education?.

I just have to say, I love the BIG VAGINA piece. That rocks out loud, and it made me giggle.

I, too, love love LOVE the Vagzilla piece. After I read it, I totally ran around the house yelling "BIG VAGINA!!!" at the top of my lungs. This was especially satisfying, as my house has high ceilings, and thus a bit of an echo.

I'm not sure where to post this, but i think the number on the emergency contraception article is wrong. Its listed as 1-800-NOT-2-LATE, but i called that number and some guy was like, "Uhh, its a 1-888 number" so i called that and it was right.

Thanks for the head's up! I checked the Princeton site and it said it is a 1-888 number. The article has been corrected.

Since it's been a little while, a few of the newest pieces you might have interest in:

The piece that has eaten my life for the last month or so, Birth Control Bingo!. There is not only a walk-through to help you find the best method for you, but each method has a very extensive page all its own.

How You Guys -- that's right, You GUYS -- Can Prevent Rape.

Too, some of the sub-pages from that piece may also be helpful to allies and survivors:
Why do men need to know about rape?
What is rape, and what is it like to be raped? Who are rapists, and where did rape even come from?
How can men know if someone is giving consent or not?
What more can we do to stop rape?


Kate Storm Guthrie wrote us a great piece on FAM, and I also included the blank calendar for menstrual charting from my book in printable format in it: Get With the Flow: All About FAM

Volunteer Lena's piece, To Be... AWESOME or Just Be Tips on Making the Most of Your Life Right Now!

There are also a lot of new Sexpert Advice questions and answers up: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice

Just a ping to direct your attention to this piece today about how alcohol and recreational drugs tend to inhibit good sex.

As well, we've had a bunch of recent blog pieces from a few different volunteers, and a LOT of new answers, thanks to extra help from Sarah, Stephanie and Susie over in Sexpert Advice.

If you're having trouble keeping up with new content, know that we do have an RSS feed for the whole site (excluding the boards). It's here: http://www.scarleteen.com/rss.xml
