Hello, my queer loves and straight allies! Pride Month is drawing to a close, but that's no reason to stop the momentum. It’s still time for LGBTQIA+ communities to come together to celebrate – and also honor the unsung heroines, the lesbians and transgender women of color, who fought for our rights, acceptance, and equality.
Since the start of COVID-19, I've masturbated virtually every Sunday with a few dozen women from around the world. The common thread? Our Bodysex work with Betty Dodson and Carlin Ross. Dodson was the OG pioneer of human sexuality and a true feminist liberator. Ross, Betty's co-conspirator, is president of the Betty Dodson Foundation and the badass who had an on-camera orgasm on The Goop Lab.
We are all for finding creative new ways to get off and get down. Cue, the “rainbow kiss.” The trend, #rainbowkiss, is taking the sex world by storm with literally 5.9 million views on TikTok.
For those new to this trend, a rainbow kiss involves mutual oral sex between a menstruating person and a person who ejaculates, and then kissing with the other person's fluid in your mouth.

Many of the quotes in the article are speaking about cisgender women specifically, but we love bodies of every kind and any kind of tech that makes having one healthier and happier.
We’re high on the idea that a new year has started. There’s promise in the air. But it’s still winter, and as Seattle restaurants continue to struggle, most are relying on takeout, delivery, and anyone willing to brave outdoor seating and chilly temperatures.

This year, more than ever, I wish everyone peace, love, pleasure, and joy. We all deserve calm and comfort after this shitshow of year. These sex-positive gifts were picked with self-care, pleasure, and social change in mind.
Buckle up, diners! It’s another month of constant change. Gov. Jay Inslee issued another halt to indoor service at restaurants and bars, with outdoor dining limited to table sizes of five or fewer.

From bento boxes to burgers, here’s our latest Hit List.
