Re: Sex Ed Books That Promote Inclusion of All Genders

Yes, that is right. If I inadvertently offended anyone by not thinking of that all apologies. I didn't mean it to read as only two.

Re: Sex Ed Books That Promote Inclusion of All Genders

Thank you. It's for a 10-year-old but my partner also wanted something that would be appropriate for a sibling that is two years younger to be able to educate them both at a level they would understand. I checked out the write up about Own Your Period and think that's an important book for both sexe...

Sex Ed Books That Promote Inclusion of All Genders

I know that Scarleteen has a book out by its founder. I was wondering however, if you had any book recommendations that teach even younger people (tweens or younger) early on not only about puberty and sex but also to understand and accept all genders and sexual orientation? I want something that pr...

Anal Sex Question

I had a question about anal sex that doesn't have to do with mechanics. My partner has had a horrible experience with intense cramps and vomiting because of inability to pass bowel movements easily most of her life. She finally had a colonoscopy and is on Restorlax daily for constipation. Despite th...

Period Underwear

I have seen period undwear advertised on TV a lot lately. I don't know a heck of a lot about the product except that it somehow traps blood and doesn't leak. I was curious about the material its made from and how it does the job it's designed to do. Is the product all it seems to be? How reliable is...

I can't have an STD and really don't know why it's occuring but figured mentioning it here may yeild an answer. I don't ...

Re: Prostate Issue.

I spoke with them. They said I have to hold it in for 30 minutes or they cannot get images. That's going to be difficult. It's 4 large glasses of water that they require you drink and hold. There's no telling whether or not they'll take me the minute I show up or make me wait either. I'm dreading it...

Re: Prostate Issue.

Just a quick update to say I will be alright. I saw a kidney specialist who says the issue I'm having is with mild deterioration of my kidneys. I've done a whack of tests including 24hr urine collection, blood tests for creatinine and other tests. They don't know the exact cause. As for the frequent...

Re: Prostate Issue.

You have provided the information that I need. Once the tests have been done I'll let you know whether or not I'm fine by adding a reply to the thread. It looks as though this should be all sorted out soon. They have told me now to drink the water just before the test and it should give some images.

Prostate Issue.

My question isn't 100% sex or sexuality related. Having said that the prostate plays a function in sex and with creation and release of semen/sperm. I have to get a medical procedure done that I didn't even know they could do. It's a prostate ultrasound. While I have read what that entails and the f...

We know that this cannot be forced because it can cause tears and other problems. I know that at birth the skin is attached firmly ...

I'm probably in dire need of an anatomy lesson so I hope my question doesn't sound stupid. I have a question about ejaculation.
