The worst part about being newly single is learning how to date again. Full disclosure: I married my high school boyfriend. So, to say I ever knew how might be a stretch. I asked my friends where to meet new people. They repeated the typical cliches: the bar, the club, online – and then something […]

Sexuality is spiritual, it’s erotic, it’s painful, it’s healing, it’s essential, it’s a burden, it’s complex, it’s powerful. It’s all of these things. It’s none of these things. And so much more. I had the pleasure of interviewing Elicia Gonzales, the co-founder of Sex X. Think Ted Talks, but cooler. Her mission? Promote sexual freedom as a […]

Menstruation is pricey. But just how pricey? According to the Huffington Post, the average menstruator will spend $18,171 on their period in a lifetime—including pads and tampons, pain relievers, heating pads and all the other myriad costs of monthly bleeding.

“I should know this,” I thought, as I stood in front of a vending machine of contraceptions. “Why can’t I remember my high school health class? Which brand is right for me? Ultra thin? Ribbed? It must be clear to the pharmacists across the way that I don’t know what I’m looking for.” I blushed as I realized […]

Today and every day, we stand in solidarity with muslim women.  Today, more than every day, we take time to question what that looks like. We are reminded that inclusivity is a bold step, not a small one. That every choice, every retweet, every message we send impacts our state of equality. Impacts our government […]

The presence of men at The March on Washington matters. One of the largest mass demonstrations in world history made its mark on January 21, 2017. The Women’s March on Washington and its sister marches had 2.6 million participants in total, far more than anyone ever anticipated. People in cities across the world marched against […]

Claudette Colvin is a name you should know. Nine months before Rosa Parks was famously arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus, Claudette Colvin was arrested for the same protest. Haven’t heard of her before?! I bet I know why. Claudette was a teen mom. She is also sheroe, a pioneer, a […]

Dear Babe, 2016 was not easy for anyone, we know. But while yes, we have taken the time to self indulge in cries and sorrow, let’s also think about some of the women before us who made love, sex and intimacy mainstream and safe. We have a lot to thank them for. They’ve helped create […]
