  • Pop my cherry!

    Virginity is a loaded word.

  • Sex work laws in Canada reek of moralism

    The term “prostitute/prostitution” is used in Canadian law, but the preferred terminology is sex worker/sex work.

  • Gets her salad tossed

    In the shower, high on psilocybin, I ate ass for the first time.

  • HIV disclosure laws in Canada hurt more than they protect

    HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. If left untreated, HIV can develop into AIDS: acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

  • Cyber sex

    Cyber sex is an entirely different buffet selection than in-person canoodling.

  • Stigmata: stigma’s origin in religious ecstasy

    The word “stigma” comes from a Latin word meaning that a person is marked or branded.

  • So you have an STBBI. I love you.

    At one of the local clinics where I work, we have a sign that says “Shame Free Zone.”

    STBBI stands for sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections. Just like there are various types of STBBIs, there are also various ways to both transmit and pick them up. Stigma around STBBIs is still rampant today.

  • Subspace

    In Hitoshi Matsumoto’s 2013 R100, a Japanese BDSM action comedy, protagonist Takafumi Katayama is eating his sushi dinner in a quiet restaurant, when a latex-clad dominatrix appears beside him. He looks up at her nervously, with reverence.

  • How strap-on sex helped me find myself

    I like to put my fake suction-cup cock in my jeans sometimes, sticking out through the open zipper, buttoned at the top to hold it in place. I admire my hard cock in the mirror, poking through my jeans. 

  • Right here, right now

    As most things, exhibitionism exists on a spectrum. Not everyone who gets titillated at the thought of possibly being caught in the act receives sexual gratification specifically from “indecent exposure of one’s genitals.”

  • Sex magic: la petite mort

    “All I ever wanted, all I ever needed is here, in my arms.” (Depeche Mode)

  • Mother of Goo takes a golden shower

    When I told some friends that I was going to write about piss play this month, the reactions I received were a mix of laughter and disgust. Peeing during sexual encounters seems to hold more shock value than anything I’ve covered yet, and fair enough – if it’s not for you, don’t do it!

  • Sex after heartbreak

    After we share our life with another person for a significant period of time and choose to part ways, we must grieve this loss. The initial fear may be loneliness: to be apart from your bedtime companion and the lips you want to kiss after a long, lousy day. But to transition out of this love and familiar touch is a reminder to come home again to ourselves, for we have not left. We were always here, and will always be here.

    Go f*** yourself. I love you

  • Thank you, Goddess

    BDSM requires skillful and intentional communication. It is the ménage à trois of intimacy, tenderness and vulnerability.

    Each month, Mother of Goo will research an activity/community on the sensual-sexual spectrum.
