Why Being Called a Tease is a Consent Issue

After declining an invitation back to her date’s apartment recently, my younger sister worried she would come off “as a tease.” So in true big sister fashion, I’m going to give you all the same unsolicited advice I gave my sister— there is no such thing as being a tease. My sister’s concern over being a tease still makes me worry that down the line, with this date or another, she’ll be in a situation where she doesn’t feel she had the right to say no, or feels uncomfortable saying it. Here are 5 things we all want our loved ones to know about consent.

The Science of Flirting (and Why it’s Fun)

Regardless of your motive, think about how flirting makes you feel. Flirting and being flirted with is fun. As we grow up, there are less and less avenues for playful interactions with other people, and eventually flirting is one of the few forms of play we have left. It’s also a huge boost to your self-confidence to be flirted with. Brain chemistry also plays a factor in why flirting can make you feel awesome.

My Life as a Sex Blogger with a Chronic Illness - Hedonish.com

My Life as a Sex Blogger with a Chronic Illness

Being chronically ill is also one of my biggest motivators for becoming a sex blogger (my other reasons were a love of sex and obsession with sex toys!) Even before vulva pain was an issue for me, I had so many questions from problems I would run into that not even google had good answers to—and I realized that I couldn’t possibly be the only person looking for answers. I love sex, but I’m also a person living with chronic illness, and it’s had an enormous impact on my sex life—so I’m going to keep talking about it so hopefully the next time someone goes looking for answers they’ll be able to find them.


Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit 2016 (#SFS16)

Being at Woodhull’s #SFS16 made me feel comfortable, like I belonged, and confirmed how right being part of the sex-positive community felt to me—a community of people who are inclusive, understanding, accepting, and non-judgmental. I’m not sure who wouldn’t want to be a part of that. I felt strangely at peace being at Woodhull, as and a very high-strung person who has no idea what relaxing is, that’s a huge thing for me.
