Here are some kissing games to suggest when you don’t know how to be direct with the person or people you actually want to make out with.

Here’s how to be sustainable, because the only way to keep having super hot queer sex is to make sure we still have a planet to have it on.

Here’s what’s up with latex.

Here’s how to take care of religious guilt getting in the way of your sex life.

What if we all got the HPV vaccine?

“Porn for women” makes too many assumptions.

Is a vagina or vulva near you itchy? Here are a few things that might be going on and how to handle them:

“‘There are few scenarios that can be treated at home when it comes to vaginal itching,’ Midcalf says. These scenarios include stopping the use of an irritating product or trying an over-the-counter treatment for a yeast infection. ‘Many of the causes of vaginal itching have similar symptoms and are therefore difficult to self-diagnose,’ Midcalf says. ‘Therefore, it is best to see a professional for persistent symptoms, and yeast symptoms that are not relieved by over-the-counter yeast creams.'”

Shadow bans – when companies silence users’ content without them or their followers knowing – against sex workers get in the way of income, community, and safety:

“[A]t this point we can only speculate on [Twitter’s] motives. Smith does this when she says, ‘Two different things are going on. It is about harming sex workers specifically, they want it to be harder for us to make money. But from a technical standpoint, they are disrupting networks; keeping people from connecting to each other in organic ways.’ It becomes harder, in other words, for sex workers to do political organizing and to keep each other safe when our networks to connect and distribute information are effectively destroyed.

Indeed, Lynn points out that shutting down access to this information puts the most marginalized sex workers at risk: ‘Whether it is to market their services, for political use, providing a place to use and amplify voices or not, simply being on Twitter is a way for individuals to connect to a support and safety network of peers & allies…Even without the financial hardships of bans hitting many people who are already doing survival work, there are real life & death issues when people cannot maintain connections with those in their safety networks.’”

  1. I love most of this LSS so I’m kinda bummed to see this “how to be sustainable” article linked. There’s nothing wrong with reducing personal waste per se, but these kind of recommendations have a minute impact and definitely won’t impact whether we continue to have a habitable planet (on which to have hot queer sex). I feel like at best, it’s misguided to recommend people run the dishwasher at night to reduce their carbon footprint, especially in 2019.
