Sex

  • Against caution

    Recently, I took one of my procrastination plunges into YouTube and watched the latest video from my favourite channel, Oh Stephco!

    In it, Stephanie, a Black woman in her late 30s, gives frank and funny anecdotes about navigating a world that does not always value her.

  • 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.

  • To be held

    Let’s call him Jack. We matched on Tinder in early 2019, when I had just turned 20. He was nine years older than me. 

  • Perception shift

    “I think we should see other people” used to be nothing more than a somewhat cliché breakup line, but more recently, it seems the phrase has taken on more nuance.

  • 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. 

  • That is a tasty burger!

    I know, I know. If you live on Broadway and can’t walk to your bus stop without being harassed by anti-vaxxers, a cheeseburger isn’t going to solve that problem. But we all need to find joy in the little things wherever we can, especially these days. And dagnabbit, there’s fewer things more joyful than a tasty burger.

  • 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)

  • Keeping it local

    With the benefits that come with it, many Manitobans desire to eat local. However, sometimes that’s easier said than done. In urban living spaces a far cry from rural homesteads, access to farm-fresh goods can be significantly limited.

  • 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!

  • ‘It’s not your fault…you’re not alone’

    On Sept. 17, approximately 10,000 Western University students, faculty and staff walked out of classes to protest the rape culture and sexism impacting their campus and campuses everywhere – as well as to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence.

  • 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.
