Don’t be afraid of the butthole

A lot of people I know have told me that they are disturbed by the idea of anything near their asshole, so I ask them “why?” Most of the answers have been either it’s weird or gross. Which I can completely understand, shit comes out of there, it’s not the most pleasant place to be thinking about or wanting anything up or around there. But it was brought to my attention a few years ago that the male g-spot is in the asshole. The prostate to be exact. Now I know a lot of guys are completely opposed to the idea of their partner sticking their fingers up there because they think that “it’s gay.” First of all, liking your butthole poked does not mean you’re gay because you’re not attracted to the same sex and you don’t want a person of the same sex sticking their anything up your ass. (P.S There’s nothing wrong with being gay anyway)  Secondly, why are you even questioning your sexuality in the first place? YOU’RE G-SPOT IS IN YOUR ASS. IT’S OK! If it feels good what’s the big deal?

So if you or your partner are curious, where do you find the lovely male g-spot? The male g-spot is located behind the anal wall in the direction of the belly button, underneath the bladder. The prostate is the size of a walnut and is very sensitive so if you’re trying to find it you need to be careful. Be as gentle as you can and watch not to poke. For girls who know what it feels like to be fingered too aggressively, you can understand how unpleasurable it can be. The easiest way to simulate the male g-spot is to press gently on what some may call the “gooch” ( the area between the balls and the asshole). But if you want to explore more you can (and I recommend using lube while you do this) lightly rub the asshole and slowly insert your fingers into it. Paying attention to the g-spot will intensify the orgasm.

For those of you on the receiving end of getting anally penetrated, if you are worried about some embarrassing shitty situations you can prepare yourself by douching or getting an enema (These options are not necessary but a personal choice. I myself have never needed these).  Just like before having vaginal intercourse you need to do some foreplay. Get that hole in the mood by using your fingers, toys or tongue. Your anus has a ton of nerves in it so it does feel pretty awesome. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the lube, start off slow and find the right position. I find it can be fun trying to figure this out with your partner. Relaxation is a very important part of being anally penetrated. When you relax, your sphincter will loosen up and it will make it easier for both partners. Sometimes adding some clitoral stimulation can intensify the pleasure of anal sex.

Everyone is different and you have to get to know what you and your partner like and dislike. Some of my friends have said they’ve tried it and hated it. Some have been so scared and then finally try it and love it. Like I said. We’re all different. But personally, it depends on what kind of mood I’m in. Sometimes I’m really wanting butt stuff and then other times I’m not. It also has to do with my partner and if they know what they’re doing (so read my blog and I’ll teach you). I have found for myself that lube is a life changer. We all know to never go in dry and your anus has zero natural lubrication. So yeah, bring out the lube and rub it on that hole. Lick it, rub it, just be nice to the butthole.

Now readers, I don’t want you to feel pressure or judgment if you don’t want to try butt stuff. Do what you feel comfortable with. It is your body and you have the right to say no to what you don’t feel comfortable doing. All I’m saying is don’t knock it till you try it.

Butt stuff doesn’t need to be a scary or disgusting thing. If it can intensify your orgasm and make sex more pleasurable, why not go for it. You don’t need to be afraid to try new things. As long as it’s consensual, sex can be whatever you want it to be. Just embrace new and different things and make sure you’re happy and comfortable.

The lovely yeast infection

Image result for funny yeast infection memes

 

Hello fellow readers! Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, it’s been pretty busy for me the past few weeks with the holidays. I had a few weeks off work to go back to Kenora and visit with all the friends and family. I’ve also had a touch of writer’s block and haven’t been sure what to write about. But recently with all the amazing food, drinks and mild stress over the holidays, I felt like yeast infections have been a reoccurring topic with my friends and I.

Vaginal yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina, symptoms of a yeast infection are:

  • Itching and irritation in the vagina and the tissues at the vaginal opening (vulva)
  • A burning sensation, especially during intercourse or while urinating
  • Redness and swelling of the vulva
  • Vaginal pain and soreness
  • Vaginal rash
  • Watery vaginal discharge
  • Thick, white, odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance

 

Yeast infections don’t always occur from having sex. Here is a list that I got from healthline.com of causes of yeast infections:

  • antibiotics (they lower the amount of lactobacillus, or good bacteria, in the vagina)
  • pregnancy
  • uncontrolled diabetes
  • weak immune system
  • poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods
  • hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle
  • stress
  • lack of sleep

So before new years, I got strep throat and the first cause of yeast infections on the list provided is antibiotics ( which the doctor warns you about when they prescribe you antibiotics). I was put on penicillin for my strep throat and it gave me the worst yeast infection that I’ve had in awhile. It wasn’t the super nasty kind of yeast infection where your discharge smells or looks “cottage cheese-like”.  I mostly felt discomfort and the burning sensation when I peed. I’m sure most of you that have had yeast infections understand the discomfort and hate it. I tried to avoid getting one by eating lots of Activa yogurt which is known for all the probiotics that it has in it and tried to just use Canesten. But genetically I am prone to getting yeast infections:(  This was a piss off altogether because if you have sex while having a yeast infection your partner could get it, which could lead to the two of you swapping it back and forth for months. BEEN THERE DONE THAT. So not only was I pissed about being sick and my vagina feeling uncomfortable, I was mostly pissed that I shouldn’t have sex, nothing a little masturbation couldn’t fix but still, Amy gets grouchy when she doesn’t get laid. Anywho, the yeast infection lasted until I finished my penicillin.

So while I had the infection I used Canesten cream. Now Canesten comes in a few different forms.  There is:

  • 1 day combi-pak comfort tab
  • 3 day combi-pak comfort tab
  • 1 day combi-pak cream
  • 1 day cream
  • 3 day cream
  • 6 day cream
  • Canesoral comi-pak
  • Canesoral

I have tried a few different brands of yeast infection treatments and I find they all work the same for me. But everyone is different and everything will work differently for each person. I find I like the 6 day cream the best. How it works is, you put cream in an application and you shoot it up your vagina the same way you would a tampon. Now I put the cream in before bed so then I don’t have a mess of cream leaking out of my vagina during the day. I just find that it soothes my discomfort right away. Now if you don’t feel comfortable shooting cream up your vagina, you can take the oral pills and I found them to also be very effective and if you want some instant relief you can also just use the cream externally.

If you are looking for a more natural way of treating a yeast infection you can just eat a lot of yogurt but, what also works is soaking a tampon in tea tree oil or even plain yogurt. Make sure it is plain yogurt because the flavoured shit is not going to work. If you don’t want to use a tampon you can also buy the applicators used for the cream and fill one up with yogurt and shoot it up your vagina.

I have found that diet really affects how likely I am to get yeast infections. Personally, I love drinking beer and beer (usually being made of yeast can really imbalance your PH levels. So if you have a yeast infection, avoid beer or any kinds of sweet drinks. Vodka water lime is usually a safe bet.

If you do have a yeast infection, it’s not really something to worry about too much. They are easy to get and easy to get rid of. Just make sure you’re getting lots of sleep, eating appropriately and avoid having sex for about a three days to a week. If your yeast infection lasts for a long time and typical treatments aren’t working for you, you should consult your doctor because you may need a stronger form of medication.

Anyways my lovelies, hope all your holidays were enjoyable and full of sex. Please feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions on what I should post about. I’m always interested in researching new and different sexual topics.

Remember, stay safe, stay consensual and smile 🙂

 

“That ring thing”

Now (I’m trying to make a metaphor here) how I see it, the birth control pill is like ketchup chips. They all have different brands that make them and each brand is a little different but in the end, they’re all ketchup and they all work well. Sometimes your body will like the Lays brand better than the Old Dutch because the Old dutch ones are too salty and give you canker sores but in the end, it’s going to taste good and protect me from hunger.( LOL. I thought that was kinda clever). I started taking the pill when I first started taking birth control. Alesse was the brand that I took which contains 20 mcgm of estrogen and 0.10 mg progestin. For the pill to work to its full potential of 99.8%, you need to take it every day at the same time. It’s fine if you don’t take it every day exactly at 3:15 but as long as you’re taking your daily dose you should still be protected but if you’re being accurate with your times and having “perfect use” out of your pill then there is only 0.1% chance of getting pregnant. I had a hard time remembering to take the pill every day at the same time. I found myself doubling up on pills pretty often or even missing a few days which made me unprotected for the month and I had to restart again after my period. I also never knew when I would be getting my period because my body wasn’t being regulated when I wasn’t taking my pills accurately. This process every couple months was extremely frustrating. I found myself having extreme mood swings. I would get very mad very easily. I would lash out at my boyfriend so often and he wouldn’t know what to do because he wasn’t doing anything wrong, it was just the crazy hormones.

So I finally had enough of being a crazy bitch that forgot to take her pills so I discussed my concerns with my boyfriend about going on a different kind of birth control and he suggested the “ring thing” because it’s probably “cool”. After this conversation, Monday rolled around and I skipped out of class early to get first in line to see the nurse. I expressed my concerns to the lovely nurse and she agreed that I should be put on a different form of contraceptive with lower hormones. The nurse asked me if there was a specific birth control I wanted to try so I told her that I was thinking about the NuvaRing. She then proceeded to tell me that since the NuvaRing literally sits in your vagina that it has a lower dosage of hormones than the pill which is what I needed because the high level of hormones in the pill was affecting my mood.

The NuvaRing is so perfect for me because you only have to think about it twice a month. You put it in after you finish your period, leave it in for 3 weeks and then take it out for your period. The NuvaRing shortens my period from 7 days to 4 days and has made my period lighter and less painful. Using the NuvaRing, I know exactly when I’ll get my period. I remove my ring on the second Thursday of the month, get my period on the Sunday around 6:00 pm. Sunday and Monday are always the most painful and heaviest days for me but after that, it’s smooth sailing till Thursday. I have been on the NuvaRing for about 4 or 5 years and I don’t see myself using any other kind of hormonal birth control because the ring is the perfect match for me. I love that you can’t feel it inside you and you can also take it out for up to 3 hours and still be protected. So if you or your partner can feel it while having sex, you can take it out, do your thing and then rinse it off and reinsert it.

I highly recommend the NuvaRing to those who have issues with remembering to take their pills or can’t handle the higher dose of hormones. I also like that you can’t really mess it up and you only have to worry about it twice in a month. And for those who feel uncomfortable with the idea of sticking something up their vagina themselves, you could always ask your partner to do it for you or if you don’t feel comfortable with that you can use a tampon applicator to insert the ring.

I am so glad that I switched methods of birth control. If I didn’t I would probably still be a crazy hormonal bitch. If you notice that your birth control method is not working for you, go talk to a nurse or doctor and ask for more options for you. Don’t just give up on the first or even second try. There are so many different kinds of contraceptives out there that there has to be something for you. Your sexual health is important! Also, don’t forget about Plan B. Yes it is expensive but remember (depending on where you are living) there are programs that can provide you with affordable Plan B or can even give it to you for free! Birth control is more affordable for some people than paying for a child for 18 years! Be wise, be happy and keep reading my blog posts!

Don’t be silly, wrap your willy

I have always been curious as to how condoms became a thing so I decided to do some research on the topic. I’m pretty sure the site I found is fairly reliable (but it’s good to take it with a grain of salt because it’s just one story and it’s a big world, of course it’s important to keep in mind it’s a perspective so it’s likely that there are probably other perspectives and stories).  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3649591/

So in greek mythology, there was this dude named King Minos. From what I’ve read he seems like he was a hardcore player slayer and cheated on his wife. It was said that his sperm contained ” scorpions and serpents” which apparently killed his mistress. His wife was obviously scared that she would die too and at that time it wasn’t an option for people to just leave their husbands, so what does Pasiphae (the wife) do? Pasiphae took a goat’s bladder (p.s sheep skin condoms are used today) and made it into an internal condom. Yes, it said that she shoved goat organs up her vagina but apparently there are controversies that the goat bladder was worn by Minos and not Pasiphae. Who knows. But end of story, Pasiphae had like 8 kids with Minos so clearly the goat bladder did not protect her against pregnancy. But she didn’t die from the “scorpions and serpents.”

So from what I understand, condoms started in Greece (good job Greeks, you make amazing food and began the creation of contraceptives) and the Egyptians picked up on this and constructed a condom like a glan cap that was dyed different colours for different classes of people to protect them from the bilharzia disease (disease caused by parasitic flatworms called schistosomes). Apparently your urinary tract and intestines can get infected by this.

Ancient Romans also took animals bladders to protect the women from getting STIs. I found it very interesting that these condoms were not used to prevent pregnancies but to protect them from STI’s. I guess at that time they weren’t really worried about making babies. But that makes sense though because they knew how to deal with babies being born but didn’t really have the resources to fight off unknown infections.

Now jump forward a couple thousand years to the 1800’s. In 1860 there was this inventor named Charles Goodyear. Goodyear found a way to turn rubber into a malleable structure which produced latex. To create latex you heat up sulfur and natural rubber to create the malleable structure that has a higher elasticity and tensile strength. So BOOM we have latex condoms.

Now readers, you are filled in on the basic history of condoms.

Personally, I always carry at least one condom with me. It’s just good to be prepared, you really have no idea what could happen and it is better to be safe than sorry. Don’t get me wrong, sex does feel way better without a condom but if you’re not in a committed monogamous relationship you really don’t want to end up with your random hookup or fuck buddy’s baby or infection that they could be carrying. But if you’re not going to use condoms just be aware of the risks. I’m not saying that if you are in a committed monogamous relationship that you shouldn’t use condoms, I just feel like if you’re in one then you’re less likely to pick up diseases (if your partner is not an anti-condom cheater).

Anyways, yeah I know condoms suck, blah blah blah but honestly I have tried different brands of condoms and I have found that the lifestyle skyn condoms are pretty good. They are a latex free soft material that is still as strong as premium latex. I was introduced to lifestyle skyn condoms from a friend of mine that found out she was allergic to latex. She found that when she used latex condoms she would get irritated so she decided to try these latex free condoms and it worked. When she used skyn condoms she was no longer irritated. So if you find that you are getting reactions from condoms, please do not ditch wrapping the willy. Try latex free condoms or talk to your doctor or nurse, explain what is going on and ask for their recommends.  

Condoms have changed throughout history and have protected billions of people.

Condoms are not the only way to protect yourself from STIs.

Other ways of protecting yourself against STIs include;

  • Talking honestly with potential partners about your and their sexual histories
  • Getting tested along with your partner before having sex
  • Avoiding sex when under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Getting vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis B (HBV)
  • Get STI screening done more than once a year

Well that’s all for now readers. I hope you all learned something and remember, don’t be silly wrap that willy!

First blog post

I started dating my first real boyfriend at the age of 14 and in this day and age, we all know sexual activities is what a lot of teenagers do when they get into high school. People would always crack jokes about me and him having sex and at that time I haven’t even given him a blow job yet. But as the jokes continued I started to feel subtle pressure and I realized I probably should start taking birth control, just to be prepared for when him and I were ready to have sex.

I was never really informed about how to get birth control until my sister had told me that you could get birth control at the high school where we went. The sexual health nurses would come every Monday from 11:30-1pm to our high school and provide birth control for the affordable price of $5 a month and pretty much any kind of birth control you could ask for. The nurses were also so helpful with answering questions and informing you on sti’s , the pros and cons of each birth control , as well as other types of contraceptives.

Not only we’re the nurses extremely helpful but this program was confidential. They didn’t need your health card or any other information. Your parents are never contacted nor is your family doctor. Being able to access birth control at the high school made maintaining my sexual health a lot easier.

Being able to access birth control at my high school is where my passion for sexual health started. I was inspired by how open and wonderful the nurses were and the fact that I didn’t have to leave the safety of my school amazed me. I wanted people to know about the program that was being provided so me having a big mouth like I do, I spread the word like crazy. I told everyone. There were even teachers that didn’t know about the program. So many students had no idea and were having unprotected sex. As time went on advertising did happen and there were posters on the walls of the halls at school and announcements in the morning. I went from being able to see a nurse right away to having to wait a few minutes in line to see them, which didn’t bother me at all because people were finally addressing their sexual health. Nurses were even willing to stay longer so that every student would be helped that day. These nurses inspired me every time I saw them and it made me feel so safe.

The things the nurses do for their clients never ceases to amaze me and I will never be more grateful for their knowledge, time and patience. I will never be more grateful for being in the public school system in Kenora.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know where my passion for sex started. I plan on writing about several different sexualish things, and maybe some good fondant and modelling chocolate recipes for the erotic cake maker!

So don’t ditch me, please read my posts and always use a condom!
