Re: Transmasculinity and Body Image CW: Fatphobia

Hi Buddyboi Having your own gym equipment sounds exciting! There are a lot of good resources online that you can use for at home workouts, so I hope you find something that works for you and allows you to set reasonable goals for yourself. Have you thought about a "thing your body can do" ...

Re: vaginal irritation (itchiness) after sex

Hi scarletibis! I'm so glad you've found our site useful :D Sounds like this would be worth getting in touch with a healthcare provider about if you are able to navigate it. We do always recommend getting in the habit of STI testing early - including with your first partner. Sounds like you were usi...

Re: How to alleviate anxiety about and not mess up about a future relationship

Hi Sabine, It sounds like you're feeling anxious a lot about the people you match with on dating apps, and like you're feeling very invested in every match. I totally get it!

Re: Why can’t I find a girlfriend?

Hey Sabine, I think that you make an important distinction here - you FEEL like you're failing, but I don't think relationships are really something that you fail at. You mentioned a therapist - have you spoken to them about the fears you have about being ghosted, and how it feels like you need a re...

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Around the area of the vulva there are three openings: the vaginal canal, the urethra (this one is very small and harder to spot) and the anus - there's a good diagram and explanation here which you can look at for more information: Innies & Outies: The Vagina, ...

Hi TS_6249 Ejaculate varies in consistency based on things like how recently/often you have been ejaculating and even how hydrated you are. If you haven't ejaculated in a while it's not unusual to find that when you do there is more of it and it is runnier as your body has had time to produce more f...

Penises come in all kinds of shapes and sizes - and yes, plenty of them are more or less curved. When you say sex position, I'm assuming you mean for intercourse? In which case, your partner's bodies will vary too, and what feels good for both of you will be up to your individual preferences - the b...

Re: Is this masturbation method safe?

Great!

You know, our most important sex organ is our brain, not our genitals. The key point is that it feels good for you - whether you have an erection or not. Sure, some types of sex are easier when erect but it's pretty limiting to say there is only one "right way" to do it - you know?
