Sex

  • 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.

  • Klinic on campus returns

    While the COVID-19 pandemic brought “unprecedented times” for everyone, students at every age were (and are) especially impacted. 

  • ‘Just have a glass of wine’

    I made the appointment to talk about other kinds of pain.

  • Stigmata: stigma’s origin in religious ecstasy

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

  • White frenemy

    Let’s call him Tony. He called me a close friend. He was older, almost 40.

  • 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!
