Conscious Contraceptives – ‘One for One’ Model for Birth Control

Based on the same ‘one for one’ model as TOMS, Conscious Contraceptives sells condoms (male and female), dental dams, lube, various body products and adult toys. Part of the proceeds go towards providing much needed contraceptives & sex education in communities in North America as well as internationally. Prices are competitive – and you’re helping out those in need. Check it out before you hit up Shoppers Drug Mart for your next batch of condoms, I suggest you take a peek at Conscious Contraceptives.

Your Brain On…An Orgasm

Very interesting brain study on men & women & their orgasms.

“The scans show that during sexual activity, the parts of the female brain responsible for processing fear, anxiety and emotion start to relax and reduce in activity. This reaches a peak at orgasm, when the female brain’s emotion centres are effectively closed down to produce an almost trance-like state.”

This explains why many women have difficulty reaching orgasm – because we as a gender get too caught up with what is going on. Our body cannot seperate physical stimulation from the environment/atmosphere – let alone our thoughts, fears, emotions and anxieties. Just like Dr Holstege said; letting go of these feelings and emotions and living in the moment can be the key to achieving orgasm. So who gives a shit about that pile of unfolded laundry on the bed – have sex on it! Now you have an excuse to wash it again and put off folding it for another few days. 😉

“The male brain was harder to study during orgasm, because of its shorter duration in men, but the scans nonetheless revealed important differences. Emotion centres were deactivated, though apparently less intensely than in women, and men also appear to concentrate more on the sensations transmitted from the genitals to the brain.”

This explains why men generally are able to have more ‘emotionally detached’ sex with various partners and not feel the need for any commitment. Its literally how their brains work. Its strictly almost physical.

“This suggests that for men, the physical aspects of sex play a much more significant part in arousal than they do for women, for whom ambience, mood and relaxation are at least as important.”

Tip Of The Day: Go into every sexual encounter with NO EXPECTATIONS. If you don’t have expectations – there is no pressure to perform. You can have good (if not great) sex without orgasm. Its about the experience not necessarily the end result. You’ll be surprised how much fun you’ll have when you stop worrying.

Own your body. Love your body.

“Don’t knock masturbation,” Alvy Singer had famously sniped at Annie Hall. “It’s sex with someone I love.”

There is a reason vibrators were invented by psychiatrists as a tool to ‘cure’ hysteria – its because your sexual health impacts your overall physical AND mental health. Sometimes if someone is just wound too tight they just need to get laid (be it by themselves or alone)

Don’t rely on a partner to make you feel good – because you’ll never have truly great sex until you take your sexuality, your pleasure into your own hands. Literally.

Also – the better you know your body the easier you will be able to tell if something is ‘off’ – and Im not talking just about STIs and other infections down-there. Often if the state of your vagina changes to something that is not the norm – it means something in your body is out of balance. Feeling like the Sahara Dessert all of a sudden? Your body could be overly stressed, hitting menopause, illness or multiple other things. So pay attention to your vag and she will have your back…or er…front.

Stuck In A Sexual Rut?

Now normally I wouldn’t suggest ANYTHING cosmo says to do to ‘spice up’ your sex life. Ex. “Just as your man is about to blow – stick your finger in his bum without warning or consent!”  This was in one of my cosmos (almost word for word – I think they used ‘as a suprise’ instead of ‘without warning or consent’ but that just drives my point home).

My point being – cosmo sucks. Their suggestions are what THEY decide your sexuality should be. But some of their stuff is too tame for some, too risque for others. So heres my suggestion that always applies: Stuck in a rut? Try something different.

Try something different. Thats it.

Doing something different doesn’t mean leaving your comfort zone, or breaking someones boundries. It just means toe-ing the line a little bit…

Do it with the lights on. Do it with the lights off and the drapes open. Have silent sex. Don’t use your hands. Watch  porn. Leave something on in bed. Have a quickie. Handcuffs. Toys. Roleplaying. Pegging. Etc.

See? Lots of things that are pretty tame all the way up to things that are for the more adventurous.

So, check out these articles. But don’t take them verbatim. Its cosmos definition what sexuality should be – not yours. So let it be inspiration.

Only way to get out of a rut is change. It won’t happen by itself either – so be assertive.

Happy sexin’ – with yourself or with a partner of course 😉

I’ll be testing out each of cosmo’s ‘challenges’ in the near future and blogging about it.
