A client of mine (we’ll call her “Amy”) who has been working on feeling more comfortable and confident in her sexuality broke into a beaming smile as she exclaimed, “Liz, you’ll be so proud of me!” She recounted a moment from a few days prior when she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror. […]

Discussing your sexual desires isn’t as easy as, say, voicing your preferences for dinner. It’s incredibly common to experience a veil of hesitation around the topic.

I’ll admit it: I’m a Scrooge Christmas, and the holiday season in general, puts a sour taste in my mouth.

What are personal boundaries and why are they so important? Personal boundaries are your core, personal values. What you will accept and no accept. What you are willing to do, and not willing to do. They define who you are, and allow you to say “No”, without feeling guilty. They are important because they help […]

Ok, tell the truth… we have all thought about it. Maybe you’re working from home, a little stressed about the future, frustrated with work, and in need of a mental break. You step away from your computer, grab a snack, maybe a cup of coffee, sit down on the couch to browse social media. As […]

Have you ever said to your partner, “not tonight, I’m too tired,” or “I have a headache” to avoid intimacy? Faked an orgasm just to get it over with? Rest assured, you’re not alone. Many of my clients complain about the lack of intimacy in their love life, and a lack of sex drive. While […]

I was one of the many people who thought personal lubricants were only for the “older folks.” As for many of others, lube was sort of my introduction into the whole pleasure products world. It was the first sex product anyone had ever talked to me about. I had heard time and time again from […]

The flag I was trying to sweep under the rug since I was 18… Vaginismus. At 18, I tried penetrative sex with my first boyfriend, but it was like hitting a brick wall! During another couple of attempts, I did my best to relax and some penetration was possible but just a little bit of […]

If you have been in a relationship for any length of time, inevitably, that exciting “honeymoon period” will eventually disappear. We often forget to “flirt” with our partner to keep that spark going during our daily lives, and 2020 has thrown a lot at us, making it even easier to overlook the romance. Thankfully, we […]

By Lindsay Michelle from Sex Ed w/ Lindsay The literal definition of tantra is to “weave,” or “loom” in Sanskirt.

We love Womanizer for many reasons, but primarily because it’s not actually a vibrator. Womanizer uses Air Pulse Tech, releasing rhythmic and targeted puffs of air to the clitoris in order to give arousal. Making no actual contact with the clitoris, this has been an amazing option for folks who may not like vibrations or […]

While Pride is celebrated every June, we believe in celebrating it all year round. Love is love, and you should have the right to love whoever, whenever. We must give great thanks to those before us who pioneered our freedoms, especially Black, trans women like Marsha P. Johnson. Spearheading the Stonewall Riots, Marsha’s throw of […]
