Lyme Disease: Probably an STI

0

by Kate M.

lyme-disease-bacteria-470x320

A recent study in The Journal of Investigative Medicine indicates that Lyme disease can be spread through sexual contact, and not just through the bites of infected ticks.

The study followed couples with one infected partner and one non-infected partner, who opted to have barrier-free intercourse. A post-sex test revealed that the previously non-infected partners had acquired the same strain of Lyme disease as their partners.

Another fun fact: it looks as though folks with vaginas are at about twice as likely as their penis-ed partners to acquire Lyme disease through vaginal intercourse.

Obviously, this is a huge bummer. Lyme disease is no joke! Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon about the best ways to keep ourselves and our partners Lyme-less.

In celebration of Pride, we want to show some love to our most popular coming out-related video, in which Allison Moon (sex educator and author of books about lesbian werewolves (yes, lesbian werewolves (I know, right?))) tells us about going through a series of identities, starting at age 16, when she first realized that not everyone fell in love without regard to gender. Enjoy!

Would You Use Marijuana Lube?

0

by Kate M.

foria

Because it exists now.

Foria is a lube made with cannabis and coconut oils, specifically designed to be used and absorbed vaginally. (An anal lube is in the works.) While Foria will only get you high-high if you ingest it – and you can – it should have some effect on anyone who uses it. Folks who have tested the product so far have reported a variety of results, including warming and tingling sensations, greater sensitivity, and feeling engorged. Sounds pretty good to us.

Currently, Foria is available in California to folks with a physician’s recommendation. But how about the future? If we could carry it, would you be excited to try it?
