Milwaukee is awash in Vagina this spring. UW-Milwaukee staged a production of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues last month, the Milwaukee Gay Arts Center (MGAC) has its version of the Monologues coming up March 13-15, and Marquette students will be presenting their own Vagina show in the next month or so. After several years without a major production of The Vagina Monologues in Milwaukee, what gives?
I love your column, and instead of being embarrassed in the doctor's
office or looking online for an answer, I turn to you. When I was
younger and would masturbate, I would be able to "express" myself for
many feet. Whether I was in the shower or bathroom, it seemed to have
quite a bit of "oomph," whereas...
I am a gay SWM, middle age, and consider myself a
nice, normal person. I know how to make interesting conversation that
can engage most people. Typically, by the end of the conversation I
give a person my card. I generally wait until an occasion arises to
invite the other person to participate with me, such as coffee. I
almost never get a response. Do people just pretend to be...
My entry into the field of sexuality education was a volunteer job as a rape crisis counselor, a position that I held for two years right after I graduated from college. I knew that I wanted to do some kind of work related to sexual health, and the most pressing issue seemed to me to be the threat of violence and shame that loomed over my sense of sexual self-determination as a young woman. Looking back on this, I wish that I had lived in a world where sex was not automatically linked in my mind with...
for bringing up this topic, H-Bomb Gal. I agree with you that herpes
simplex virus (HSV) is an infection that many people are irrationally
afraid of. Although HIV is a virus that has far more serious
consequences, I have met many people who are public about their
HIV-positive status, and not one person who is open about having
This week, I continue my series of interviews with local artists and activists who are working to sexify Milwaukee.
The lovely Miss Bella Sue DeVianti is clearly a fan of the color purple. She has striking purple eyebrow tattoos, purple hair and a fabulous purple feather boa that she went to great lengths to obtain at Closet Classics on North Avenue. DeVianti is working hard to add more color to our fair city through monthly performances of the burlesque troupe she founded last year, the Alley Cat Revue Milwaukee. The Alley Cats...
It's no secret that Milwaukee has an inferiority complex. People seem to think that in order to see or do something unique and creative, you have to go to Chicago. This is true for sex-themed events as much as it is for others - our fair citizens in search of a swingers' party, BDSM club, or sexy show often head south.
Donny of Expressions Mass Media is trying to change this...
I really enjoy your column and have a question. Do you have any suggestions on how to perform oral sex well?
This is a short question that's going to get a long answer-a two-part answer, in fact. Since you didn't specify a particular gender in your question, I'll talk about performing oral sex on men in this column, and discuss oral sex on women in a future column...
I’m sitting in the Alterra on Prospect Avenue with Ashe, Boone and Lyndzi, three members of a four-person polyamorous relationship. They define their group as a “polyfidelitous N,” which is a succinct way of saying that the four of them are in an exclusive non-monogamous relationship where not all members have romantic relationships with each other. Ashe is a 22-year-old techie who’s married to Boone, a 28-year-old writer and editor. Boone is dating Lyndzi, a 21-year-old student at UW-Milwaukee, and Lyndzi is dating John, a 23-year-old salesperson
