I second that the last LW should think about talking to an OB/GYN about their pain after penetrative intercourse. Not so that you can get a green light to have a kind of sex you're not into, but because it might indicate a health problem, like a cyst or polyp. Hetero women have a health advantage in that they are likelier to get regular screenings like Paps, STI tests, and vaginal exams, just because the health system tends to assume that women-sexing-women are low-risk, and those are often the exams that turn up other issues like polyps or give patients a chance to talk about what's going on in their body with a health professional. It's important to get your parts checked no matter who is putting their parts in or around it!
"I practiced the guitar till my fingers bled’ is something Taylor once said, which is laughable and surely a blatant lie as I plAy the guitar, only more shredding Metallica stuff"
@themegnapkin Yes! So much misinformation. "Clinics" that don't provide accurate medical information to pregnant women should be illegal.
50% the bottle of weird botanical booze that has been sitting untouched on our liquor cabinet for over a year
50% sweater that is itchy and slightly shrunken from the wash but is too cute to get rid of, although I have worn it once in four years. There is a fox on it!
Why would I throw away my period underwear when I would just immediate ruin more pairs, though?
Opting out of a work dinner to watch tawdry new episode of Vampire Diaries with my dad.
@Nutellaface That sounds so awful!! Using NuvaRings back to back is a good idea-- I'm a contraception counsellor at a sexual health clinic and one of the things we learned is that there is no physiological reason why you need to "take a break" from your birth control to get a simulated period. It's totally arbitrary. If getting your period is a trigger, by all means, skip your periods!
On "The digital porn guy wants a fantasy that doesn’t exist, but the postfeminist girl wants one as well"
I saw Don Jon last night and liked it more than I expected to (I especially liked that Julianne Moore is in it, being a normal sexual human being, and no one takes pains to point out that she is over 30. DISTURBINGLY REFRESHING.) But I felt it was a liiiiiittle heavy-handed with the "Porn is awful and ruining your life" and also seemed to imply that the only porn women might enjoy is the classy European vintage variety. Also, I kept waiting for someone to point out that all of JGL's character's excessive cleaning, working out and prayer-- in addition to his porn habit-- seemed an awful lot like OCD.
@laurel I don't have all the answers to your weird teeth questions BUT I do know that cats and dogs also have baby teeth, but since they usually swallow them they are less noticeable. I think pigs too.
“So we realized we were being super stupid, and I was like, ‘Do you want to be in a relationship? What do you want?’ And he was like, ‘I really love you. I’ve never met anybody like you. You’re not a dumb bitch.’
Ahhh, young love.
On "Maybe I needed to prove that I'm wife material. If he wanted 300 sandwiches, I’d give him 300 sandwiches"
The awfulness of this sandwich-barter engagement has been well-covered here, so I have another important question: wherrrrre can I get the cute floral dress that the future Mrs Make-Me-a-Sandwich is wearing?
