Beyond the Birds and Bees

Some stories may reflect your own values; others may express viewpoints far outside your experience and comfort level. Read with tolerance as you realize the vast differences in background, upbringing and values our contributors bring to the site.

Designed to be a place where folks can go for information, shared experiences both wonderful and horrifying, and of course laughter, Beyond the Birds and the Bees in time will host thousands of accounts as diverse as naming body parts, coming out to family members, learning about the mechanics and the emotions of sex, dealing with abuse, teaching methods of birth control, disclosing assault, celebrating puberty, handling sex as it relates to disability and discussing menopause with our mothers and daughters.
