Meg Ross is cooler than your average entrepreneur. When we hopped on the phone last week, I was surprised to hear the real story behind The Nooky Box, the line of sex positive subscription boxes she created in Montana. Meg wants to change America through sex education. Selling a product to gain the capital is […]

Ever run the faucet over your lady parts to get off? It’s a #classicteenmove I personally didn’t discover until a bit later in life. Poor shame! Natural pleasure is as good as it gets – and running soft water down your shaft (yes, women have clit shafts) – is as good as anything gets. When I […]

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 […]

This Sexual Assault Awareness Month, let’s make one thing clear: WE NEED MORE. More resources for survivors. More transparency. Better reporting, engagement and action. We need protection. We need CHANGE. It’s time for Sexual Assault Anger Month. WTF is that? Mic does a great job breaking it down. In their words, “It’s time for Sexual Assault […]

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 […]

When I look around me, I see a society in which women’s health is not in women’s hands. My work is to reconnect women to their intuitions and to each other. Let me explain: I had three babies in three years. Each pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience was far out of the medical, male-centered norm. Like […]
