Re: Not sure about advice I've been getting about dating

I just wanted to add that even if your brother's in causal relationships, I still think being upfront with people with what you want (in a tactful way, as you said above) would end up being more enjoyable for both parties involved. I would think knowing what feels good to the other person and vice v...

Re: Sex at 14

I'm not sure how you (and your partner) feel about condoms, but doing it in addition to birth control would lower your chances even more of becoming pregnant. I just wanted to add that even though neither of you have an STD now, you could get one in the future. Like the article Sam linked you to sai...

Re: What body part could you make peace with to improve your life?

I really need to make peace with my stomach. Sometimes I've been feeling "too fat" and I'm really trying to work out of that mindset but it's a struggle at times. Every time I hear things about healthy eating and the dangers of obesity I worry about my own weight. Exercising helps because ...

You're very welcome. The right word I may have been looking for was what al said - the whole thing about your mother saying she needed to be at the appointment with you sounded more like a scare tactic than genuine concern. It just sounds like your mother is trying to control aspects of your life wh...

Re: gynecologist with mom

First off, I just want to say that I'm sorry your mom hasn't been accepting of your sexuality. What she's saying to you is completely wrong. No one deserves to have their sexuality invalidated. There's nothing wrong with you, which I'm sure you already know, but I just want to reinforce that your mo...

Re: Questioning lesbian?

This has pretty much been said already, but I would identify with the orientation you feel most comfortable. Or none, if you don't feel comfortable with any. Queer is another umbrella term you could use if you're not sure about some of the others. But whatever feels comfortable to you IS your sexual...

Re: Am I bi or gay or straight... just confused

Hi, Before I delve in any further, I just want to start off by saying that sexuality is really personal. That doesn't mean you can't get advice for others on how you feel especially if they've been in similar situations, but ultimately it will be up to you to decide what your sexuality is and what i...

Hi, Introvert!

It very well could have been an orgasm. Both feelings can be similar. One way you could make sure it's not irine is if you go to the bathroom before having sex.

Hi, Anonymous 12! I'm assuming your describing PIV sex? I'm only asking because sex is such a broad category of activities, and what some people describe as sex others don't. Anyway, if that's the case, many women experience sexual pleasure from their clitoris, which, as you know, isn't stimulated d...

I don't know if you've experienced this problem, but if you are nervous/stressed then it can be uncomfortable/painful to insert things like tampons in your vagina. But either way, I would suggest speaking to your doctor if you're having problem getting it in. They might be able to help you or end up...

Re: How to deal with wanting a relationship?

The reason I think so many people love fiction is because of that reason - it's an escape from reality to meet all our desires. It's exactly what we want in life and we're in control so everything goes our way. With that being said. I think there is something beautiful about the "imperfection&q...

In a way I can relate to this because lately I've been wanting to be in a relationship - mainly sexual, but nevertheless a relationship.

I didn't go to public school and was homeschooled but I feel like I could've learned more about sexuality. Like the fact that sex is for pleasure rather than mainly for reproductive purpsoes (which is heteronormative, too) and that there's nothing wrong with giving yourself pleasure because you like...

Clotting during your period is actually normal. I've had it happen before. The only problem seems to be if the blood clots are really heavy because it might mean you're losing too much blood, but it's hard to tell because some people's periods are just heavier than others. I would try to pay attenti...
