As a young girl—ovaries yet to ripen and hymen still in intact—reading Judy Blume books were like porn for me … educational porn. These were the pre-internet days, before I could Google "funny feeling down there" or "penis, hard-on." All I had was my imagination and my canon of Judy Blume books to aid my highly curious pre-teen mind. They were a permanent Sharpie mark on my burgeoning deviant mind.
Scientists haven't yet given up hope on the Holy Grail of a male birth control that can bridge the gap between boring, erection-threatening condoms and the semi-reversible vasectomy. The most recent developments in birth control for men involve injections that may have to be administered every other month.
The media is a all a bustle about a German safe sex advertisement depicting a woman getting banged by Adolf Hitler. The minute-long advertisement starts with two lustful things ripping each others clothes off and after a few passionate thrusts the man lifts his head and reveals a Hitler face. The ominous German phrase: Aids Ist Ein Massenmorder (translation: AIDS is a mass murderer) is then splashed across the screen. Will Hitler's face make you wear condoms?
Condom etiquette is something that single women don't discuss nearly enough. We need some open dialogue to take some of the awkwardness and confusion out of these situations. So, we have for you our eight condom commandments. No matter what your views are about casual sex, dating, or relationships, it's important to know where you stand on condoms before the moment "arises."
Often, a woman's birth control choice is based on word-of-mouth from friends (which pill relieved monster cramps; which procedure was covered by insurance), familiar routines unchanged since college (same old pink pill case) or even TV commercials (seen the ones that make taking birth control look like boarding a Caribbean cruise?). But as women cross over into the years beyond 30, there are new options that go beyond basic oral contraception and condoms.

The UK's NHS is handing out pamphlets to school children touting "An Orgasm A Day Keeps The Doctor Away."

The National Institutes Of Health are giving approximate $400,000 to figure out why guys don't like condoms. In the grand scheme of things, it's not that much money. But it seems like an easy question to answer. We'll explore how condom use and communism are similar.
The study, by sex researcher Rachel K. Jones, indicates that "if the male partner withdraws before ejaculation every time a couple has vaginal intercourse, about 4 % of the couples will become pregnant over the course of a year." With an 18% failure rate, the pull-out method comes pretty close to matching up with that of the condom’s 17% failure rate.

According to blogger Ian Halperin, a close source confirmed that Lindsay is indeed seven weeks pregnant. I swear she’s carrying,” the source said. “She’s going through big emotional turmoil. She’s not sure if she’ll have it or go through with an abortion that she booked to have in the next few days. Saddest part is she has no idea who the father is.

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)!
