Is this the best combination of sex and technology yet? Durex is working on a line of undergarments (Fundawear—badum-ching!) that vibrate when activated by mobile phone. That’s right, remote-operated vibrating underwear are in development.
They’re not available for purchase yet, but it looks like the Aussies will be the first to give this product a go. (Gives new meaning to the land down under…)
Crunches for better orgasms? -
Exercise isn’t just good for your health—it’s also great for your sex life. Getting in shape can lead to longer time spent between the sheets and better orgasms. Best gym advertisement ever.
Got a health condition? Know your birth control options! :: Bedsider -
Our newest Provider Perspective recommends birth control methods for folks with several common (or common-ish) medical conditions: heavy or irregular periods, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and breast cancer.
Dealing with one of these conditions? Tell us what’s worked for you—or let us know what other conditions we should cover—in the comments!
Don’t beat around the bush. Studies suggest that many patients wait until their third question to bring up what they really want to talk about with their provider. Break the cycle and tackle your priority questions first. Your provider will appreciate your directness and it’ll mean more time for answers! — Talking to doctors can be super intimidating—but it doesn’t have to be. Take time out of your National Women’s Health Week to check out these communication strategies to get what you need out of a doctor’s visit.
There are lots of things you can do for National Women’s Health Week, but we say be proud if you start with just a couple.

Shout out to all the moms out there—you’re awesome.
These days, if I’m not on a trip I’m probably planning one. Whether its for work, a family obligation, or to explore a country on my “must-see-before-I-die” list, traveling is constantly on my brain. So of course I’m considering what this means for my love life! And after talking to a few members of the Nomadness Travel Tribe (a traveling group I belong to), I got the memo that “nomads,” a.k.a. frequent travelers, may be more likely to be single. Arrrrr!!
Truth be told, I am not okay with that. And unfortunately the solution is not as simple as dating a fellow nomad. Even within the Nomadness Travel Tribe, their statistics show that the group of over 4,500 members is 80% female. Not very good odds for a woman seeking a man within the tribe.
So does that mean my only option will be to one day slow down and stay put when I meet the next “boo”? According to Davine, one of my recent interviewees, the answer is no:
Do you think there can be compromise in a relationship between a nomad and a non-traveler? Or is that a breakup waiting to happen? Sound off!
