Hello there doe-eyed friend, this post isn't safe for work, unless you work from home on your sofa in some cutoffs eating yogurt that's four days beyond its purported "best by" date, like some of us. Moving on, do you have sex? What kind of sex do you have? What kind of sex are you talking about today? Today we're talking about this kind of sex. This is our story.

Hannah: Was going to suggest that we talk about the booby bouncy castle at the Museum of Sex until I realized it was already linked in NSFW Sunday. However, due to my proximity to said bouncy castle, I am still probably gonna go jump around in a room full of inflated boobies. If anybody wants to hear about it, I will likely want to talk about it.
Elena: I am jealous of your proximity to MoSex. I had a friend bring me back a tube of the Helmut Newton lipstick.
Riese: I have learned a lot of really neat-o things at the Museum of Sex, like for example sploshing.
You Have Reached A+ Content!
98% of the content on this website is available to everybody for free, but this is one of the 1-2 posts we publish each month just for Silver and Gold A+ members. We also publish an additional 2-3 posts a month available to all A+ members (Bronze, Silver and Gold). WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? Well, because...
We Need Your Help.
This might be an awkward way to ask for it, but here goes: we know you like Autostraddle, and we like you a whole lot too. Advertisers and investors, on the other hand? Well, independently-owned politically progressive LGBTQ women's media isn't exactly their thing. It's do or die for us now: either we shore up enough reader support to compensate for the slowdown in ad sales and increasing competition from corporate-owned LGBTQ media, or we shut down altogether.
That's why we've created Autostraddle Plus. It's a way for loyal readers like you to support the site for as little as $5 a month, and in return get a peek behind the curtain of Autostraddle with posts like this one, A+ swag, podcasts, Insider "newsletters," and essays/interviews from the previously-very-hidden parts of our hearts, souls and pants. Best of all, you're helping us keep Autostraddle.com free for everybody — free of cost, and also free from the inevitable compromises made by sites that cater to marketers, not readers.
A+ is a sustainable way for queer people and allies to opt into a system that financially supports other queer people. With the support of readers like you, we can pay our writers, diversify our team and continue to coordinate the worldwide meet-ups that have changed so many lives.
