My Life With A Sexual Disorder

There's been a lot of talk lately about women's sexual health. Either we're not doing it, or we don't feel like doing it, or don't like the feel of doing it. I fall squarely into that third category, because when it comes to matters of the old in-and-out, my girl parts are afraid of boy parts. Sounds ridiculous, I know. But I have a doctor's note.

I Had No Idea That My Boyfriend Was Married

"Well, since you're done," he told me, slowly, "there's something I need to tell you ... I'm not actually divorced." The silence on my end of the line was deafening. I was just devastated.
