Welcome to NSFW Sunday!

If you want to have more sex, schedule it:

“To schedule sex, Sussman suggests a couple look for ‘windows of opportunity’ in their calendars. ‘You have to look at your schedule and see what’s going on: What time do you get home from work? Are your kids in your bed all the time? Do you ever have any private time? You’ve got to look for at what your window is,’ she advises. For example, if you have opposite work schedules but both have Sunday off, plan to have sex then.

Along with those ‘windows of opportunity,’ Sussman says to consider when you and your partner’s sex drives are highest. For example, if you both enjoy morning sex, plan to wake up early for sex once a week, or to make sure the kids are busy on a weekend morning. Sussman also suggests scheduling sex as part of an evening date night.”

What if sex education taught pleasure?

Danielle Corsetto talked about polyamory at Oh Joy Sex Toy.

“Loving is hard, and perhaps what makes it hardest is its fundamental paradox: that it is also easy, so easy that we struggle to stop, even when we are desperate to do so, and even when it’s in our best interest,” writes Rachel Vorona Cote at the New Republic on Hard to Love, a debut essay collection by Briallen Hooper that argues that platonic love is not a lesser form of romantic love or marriage and that it’s time for “elevating all intimate bonds, including those between single people, and allotting protections and services to those who need them, rather than reserving them as benefits for those who possess the proper paperwork.”

Do not dry shampoo a vagina:

“If you have a vagina (and even if you don’t), you’ve probably heard the phrase ‘self-cleaning oven’ to describe how your body takes care of itself. According to Shari Marchbein, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at NYU Langone School of Medicine, it’s a phrase that bears repeating. ‘The vagina requires very little except for gentle cleansing with water and a very gentle body wash for the vulva,’ Marchbein says. ‘This is why douches and the like are not recommended by dermatologists or OBGYNs.'”
