This helpful graphic explainer from A. Andrews is a great illustration of what living safely during COVID-19 in Minneapolis (where I also live!) looks like right now; here are some guidelines for making plans for yourself and loved ones to stay as safe as possible where you are.

Let us be thankful, today and all days, for butts. The possibilities for butt play and pleasure seem almost endless — not only inside, but also outside!

“Looking for a baby who wants to be pleasured and punished in the most loving of ways. I may look adorable, but I’m quite powerful and will make you shake with joy or fear – if you behave you get to choose.”
You and your cyber cutie have probably gone from simple sexting to full-on virtual sex and maybe have seen each others toy or two – but what about exploring something to use together once it’s safe to meet up again? Wet for Her is low key making it hella easy to mix online shopping with your IRL play.
Whether you’re getting sweaty solo or have a partner in quarantine you can’t keep your hands off no matter how hot it gets, it’s a good time to bring some cool sensations to the hottest and heaviest parts of your life. That’s why all the toys highlighted here are perfect for temperature play, for a variety of types of sensations and bods. With some sweet sweet discounts throughout this post, there’s never been a better time to try bringing some chill into the bedroom.
It’s been a long year, and by “year” I mean “six months” but also “decade.” You deserve some big pleasure, something you can count on to make you feel good — really, really good. That’s why we’ve picked out some of the best-in-class powerhouse products from Eve’s
There’s something different about how you approach sex with someone you’ll be scissoring for the long haul – you know what she likes, you can do things a little differently if you’re fluid-bonded, and you can invest in higher-end things you know you’ll both love.
We grow closer to people by figuring things out together. The best bonding experience is both of you creating it yourselves, and this Valentine’s Day you can do just that with these multi-function, flexible toys.
REI invited Abeni, Vanessa, and Heather to choose one of the zillion classes they offer and sent them some apparel from the extended sizes line to test drive. Afterward they got together to talk about the gear, the outdoor sessions, extended sizing in general, and what it’s been like to work with REI at Autostraddle over the past year.
This year, Opt Outside continued to grow and evolve, becoming a full movement in the process — instead of choosing to make the world better for one day, REI invited its employees and customers to commit to making the world better, consistently, for an entire year.
Happy hiking, homos! I look forward to seeing you out there.
Whether it’s an affordable treat, something sexy for you and yours to share in bed, or a luxury investment in your pleasure to reward yourself for making it through this year, add one more stop to your shopping this season and you and your activity partners will be thanking you for it all year long.

From the moment I got the training wheels off my Strawberry Shortcake bicycle in kindergarten to the starter mountain bike I got for high school graduation to the first bike I bought with my very own money, nothing has ever made me as free as cycling.
Come join us for some hot chocolate and cider, REI swag, and a chance to hang out with other queer and trans folks on a weekend when a lot of us aren’t able to go home to our birth family for the holidays.
‘Tis the season for black bats, black cats, and maybe a few adventures designed to give you goosebumps. Enjoy these all black everything offerings from Eve’s and let them keep you up through the witching hour and beyond!
Inspired by their vulnerability and the powerful throwback energy of high-school-age Sara and Tegan, we’ve cracked open our own high school diaries to show you our deepest, darkest, gayest secrets and send a little love and perspective back through time on who we’ve been.
There’s something extra special about the High School audiobook, and not just because it features the rough cassette recordings of the songs that make up their new album, or because they read their own chapters with their own voices, or because they interview each other for maybe the first time ever. It just feels real and ever so soft.
Whether we do it to explore gender and gender presentation, to embrace our flamboyance, to show off and show out, or to just feel powerful, no con is complete these days without a horde of queer cosplayers or queer characters making their way up and down the aisles and across the stages
