Re: I'm confused

Hi Jack! It's great that you're exploring your body. From what you describe, it sounds like what you're touching may be your g-spot. When it comes to vaginas in general, there is rarely such thing as "normal." All bodies (and vaginas) are different. Does it hurt or cause any discomfort whe...

Re: Who chose your birth control method?

Great question! I've never chosen a birth control method, but I started on the pill because of POS. Talking to friends I found out that several of them were also using the pill, but had also started because of POS, and their doctor never told them anything in regards to using the pill as a birth con...

What's the sex ed curriculum where you're from?

Currently, students in Ontario are walking out of class to protest the repealing of an updated sex-curriculum. Where I'm from, sex-ed consisted of less than an hour long "talk" sometime in high school. I've had friends from other parts of the world whose sex-ed was completely different, ra...

India's Supreme Court decriminalized gay sex!

Yesterday, the Indian Supreme Court decriminalized gay sex, overturning more than 150 years of anti-LGBTQ legislation. Thousands in India and around the world are celebrating that 1/5 of the world's population does no longer face legal repercussions for gay sex. With so many terrible and scary thing...

Re: Have you ever had relationship expectations that turned out to be unrealistic?

Just recently I had a friend (whose 19 and starting their first relationship) ask me if it was a bad sign that he still thought people other than their partner were attractive. Seems like a common misconception. For me, it was believing that it was necessary to spend most-to-all of my time with my p...

Re: LGBT books/movies that don't end in tragedy

I love this topic. Some of my favorite happy-ending YA queer books: Simon vs. the Homosapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli (the movie Love, Simon came out last year, it's pretty great too), Leah on the Offbeat by the same author, The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding and Tell Me Again How a Crush S...

Abortion and Access to Reproductive Health in Latin America & the Caribbean

Hey everyone, I wanted to check in and see if anyone from Argentina, or Latin American & the Caribbean is being affected by the outcome of the Argentinian Senate vote earlier this month. In short: Two weeks ago, on August 9, the Argentinian Senate rejected a bill to legalize abortion. Several gr...

Re: What does "body positivity" mean to you?

I used to only associate body-positivity with weight-related issues. After moving to the U.S, I gained some weight. Whenever I would fly back to Honduras for summer or winter vacations, I would dread days in advance all the comments I might get from friends and family. I had not heard anyone (until ...

Re: Has our recent culture changed your sex life?

As a Latinx lesbian from a country where LGBTQ+ persecution is extremely high and hate crimes are rarely investigated, I moved to the U.S two years ago hoping I would find a place where I would be able to exist freely. The election was about 4 months after I moved. It was, of course, heartbreaking. ...

Re: My mother is so... I honestly don't know what to say anymore...

Hi, Kittypink, I hope it's okay I'm jumping in here. I'm so sorry to hear about your continuing difficult history with your mother. In previous posts, it seemed like you were going to try to set a boundary with your mom where you wouldn't discuss with her anything about transitioning. How has that w...
