It’s absurd to think that the proof of a woman’s virginity is based on an anatomical misunderstanding: a small cuticle which does not even exist. Indeed, the value of women around the world and across many different cultures is measured by a myth. To address the issue and help bring clarity, we need to make a greater effort to understand the anatomy of our vagina. So, let’s take a closer look at the hymen.
As if there wasn’t already enough weird trend terminology in the world of dating, there is now another new and unfamiliar term for us to learn: welcome to the “cuffing season”. We’ll explain what exactly hides behind this strange phenomenon and why strong, emancipated women consider the trend to be a step backwards.
It sounds like a horror story from the Middle Ages, but in fact it’s a shocking reality of modern society. The myth surrounding the “husband stitch” (or “daddy stitch”) is not a myth at all. Time and again women have reported the practice of this incapacitating medical procedure following childbirth. We explain what the “husband stitch” is and why it must be stopped once and for all!
Let’s be honest – oral sex is just one of those things. Do we really know how our partners prefer it? Hard or soft? Use of teeth, tongue, lips – the list of unknowns is long. We’ve asked 10 millennials about their thoughts during oral sex. The answers range from insecure, distracted to absolute delight.
Viennese artists G-udit and $chwanger have turned cloud battle rap into their vehicle of feminist expression, but KlitClique’s lyrics are also filled with humor. One of their songs is called “Chérie, je suis un genie” and their first album “Schlecht im Bett, gut um Rap” (“Bad in bed, good in rap”) is out now. The title of the album is also the rappers’ reply to cheesy pickup lines.
Once a month I bleed. I also get cramps, stomach pains and find myself on an emotional rollercoaster. Luckily, I’m not alone. Millions of women menstruate every month. In fact, in all spheres of life there are women who bleed. And yet menstruation remains a taboo subject. That has to change. Thankfully, social media campaigns and advocates have taken the first step toward promoting liberal conversations about the monthly menstrual cycle.
We have all experienced sexual harassment in some way or another. Be it suggestive comments from your boss, wolf whistles at the construction site or groping at a party. And ever since the whole Harvey Weinstein affair, the topic has been a constant focus in the media. As a result, the hash tag #MeToo movement started on social media to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment. Something that should only be encouraged. But sometimes there is too much of a good thing. Dare I say it, even as a self-proclaimed feminist I have become irritated by the #MeToo debate. What started out as a fight to end sexual violence and support its victims has become just about that. The victim.
