Pansexual pandemonium

Sex on Tuesday

She was slim, with a perfect blond bob I could never achieve and a minimalistic style so effortless that it seemed to be a part of her being. She was quiet, and I hardly ever spoke to her, but her participation in class seemed to be well-informed and confident. Her

Bound by caution

Sex on Tuesday

In my first Dominant/submissive relationship, my partner would hit me too hard. We agreed previously that if he hit me too hard, I would use our safeword and we would renegotiate. I called attention to it, asking him to stop. But he used his dominance as a definite decree. He

Physical disability and sex

Sex on Tuesday

No sooner do I feel dumb for asking, “What’s it like when you have sex?” than she answers, “I imagine just like everyone else.” What I meant in asking, “What’s it like?” was more along the lines of: “What steps do you take?” I met with my friend and fellow

Embodying positivity

Sex on Tuesday
