“For my girlfriend and me, our lesbian identities have given us both personal freedom and blissful security in our relationship that once felt impossible. I like to think that we challenge each other to be better women, and I know that my transition has facilitated personal and relational growth for both of us,” writes Ginny Searle at Allure on being part of a cis-trans lesbian couple who ‘found each other’ before either partner was out:

“One thing that we have learned together is that we’re both lesbians. My transition reinvigorated a process of self-discovery in my girlfriend that she’d previously had difficulty coming to terms with, and shortly after my transition, she confided in me that she could never see herself dating a man. The word ‘lesbian’ rings in a tune that my girlfriend and I had felt long-connected to, but could only hear fully through my transition. We are not the only cis-trans lesbian couple I know of who ‘found each other’ before either partner was out.”

Genital piercings are often associated with living a “certain sexual lifestyle” in scare quotes, but getting part of your vulva pierced is just as easy as piercing anything else. (Note that the industry calls them vagina piercings even though that’s not anatomically what’s going on). Here are a few of the placement options:

“Turns out, those with a vulva have a lot of different options to adorn it. Our pros report that the most common are vertical and horizontal piercings on the clitoris, plus both the inner and outer labia. Of course that’s not all. Smith tells us that there are less popular options, like ‘the fourchette,’ a thin fold of skin at the back of the vulva, or ‘the Christina’ piercing, the skin on your pubic bone. ‘It really just comes down to your anatomy,’ he says. Remember, everyone’s body looks different, so not every piercing is right for every vulva.”

Here’s what it’s like to get a Brazilian wax, which leaves your entire pubic region hairless.

It’s okay if vulva tastes like vulva.

Body-language analysis is a science and an art.”

Stop invalidating bisexuality and bisexual sexual experiences.

Men are just worse at writing sex.

Exes are great at texting during the holidays. At the Cut, Ella Cerón explains:

“The aim is not necessarily to lead to a hookup; you could, ostensibly, get a text from an ex who’s halfway around the world. Instead, I think the spirit of the holidays either makes people feel like being the bigger person, even to someone who ripped their heart out, or so lonely and nostalgic that they want to reach out to anyone they think might be there.”
