One of the sexually transmitted infections that I get asked most about is Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Thanks to relentless advertising for Merck's Gardasil vaccine, many people are aware that some strains of HPV are linked to cervical cancer in women, and about 37% of teen girls have received the Gardasil vaccine in the U.S. since it was recommended for routine administration in young women in 2006...

Last week, one of the Tool Shed’s suppliers called us to say that they had picked up a new line of kinky gear we had suggested they carry. The supplier had seen this gear at a recent trade show. “The booth was mobbed. Kink is in!” she proclaimed...

I am a female in my 20s who has a boyfriend close to my age. We have been together three years. I am able to have multiple orgasms with a vibrator (a plug-in style) that I use on myself, but I have never been able to give myself an orgasm with my fingers alone. My big problem is that while I can orgasm by using this vibrator on myself...

Last weekend, we held a "Strap-On Sex 101" class at the Tool Shed. This was the first time that we had offered this particular workshop, and I was fascinated to see that it generated more phone and e-mail inquiries than any other class we've held. Many people wanted more information about exactly what would be covered during the...

This week, my friend Gwendolyn Glover has asked me to guest-blog on her Web site, Little Miss Writer. Her theme for this month is people's relationships to their bodies, and she asked me to write about how I think a person's body image affects their capacity for sexual pleasure. I'm cross-posting my thoughts here and on Gwendolyn's blog...
