A little self-love can go a long way

Sex toy company Good Vibrations began International Masturbation Month in 1995, soon after Surgeon General M. Joycelyn Elders was forced to resign for having the audacity to suggest that young people should learn about masturbation as part of sex education. The goal of the month-long celebration has always been to fight the taboos against self-pleasure and remind people that masturbation is not just safe and healthy but really good for us.

Telehealth can make your life so much easier

Luckily, the internet has made it possible to access a range of sexual health services online. Not only can you now get things like condoms and pregnancy tests online, saving you a trip to the pharmacy, you can also meet with health care providers online, get prescriptions, and have medication delivered to you. Here are some options you might want to check out if getting to the doctor is tough for you (or you just dread it).

Skip the stress, get your BC delivered

Adulting is hard. Sometimes it can feel like basic life maintenance tasks like grocery shopping, showering, and making sure you’re not living in absolute squalor are a full-time job. And then to have to make money on top of all that, plus text everyone back all the time, and somehow stay hydrated? It’s a cruel joke. So it makes sense that it honestly feels like way too much to have to go see your health care provider to renew a prescription or to have to wait in line for 20 minutes at the pharmacy to pick up your birth control while people cough directly into your mouth. Fortunately, it’s 2020, and there’s a better way. It’s called (drumroll please)…telehealth.

Next time, it'll be different

Most of us have had a bad breakup at some point. You know, the kind where you can’t stop crying for weeks and you have a pit in your stomach for months, and you can’t hear that person’s name without feeling like you’ve been sucker punched for years? We can’t much help with the PTSD, but we can help you figure out how to move forward.
