Original article posted on www.thecut.com I was at Target on a mission. I’d never bought a sex toy before, but there I was, standing between shelves of pregnancy tests and shelves of condoms, where the store stocked a variety of tiny vibrators and lube. Here, I hoped, was where I’d find the tools to help… Read More #sexdrivestories “Treating My Anxiety Made My Sex Life Worse”
Originally published on Medium.com: As a someone who is queer, polyamorous, kinky, and suffers from vulvodynia, I function in two distinct social circles. Most of the important people in my life, be it my friends, partners or lovers, identify as sex-positive and share with me at least one of those first three labels.

Guest post- taken from “A Kink in the Bedroom” There, I said it: I don’t have sex with my husband. In the past three years, the number of times we’ve had sex could probably be counted on two hands…maybe even one.

Submitted by a sex blogger who wishes to remain anonymous: I wouldn’t describe myself as having a low sex drive, I love sex once I’m in the moment, but I’d describe myself as someone who takes a while to get going. I cannot turn lust on with a switch, the idea of having a quickie… Read More #sexdrivestories: “How real life ambushed, then enhanced my sex drive”
When I was in the midst of a really low point to do with my sex drive, I often wondered about porn stars and their libido. I watched them happily shagging away, and I wondered whether they were really attracted to the people they have sex with, if they get bored of sex or struggle… Read More #sexdrivestories: Interview with a porn star
When I was in the Dead Bedroom Marriage (DBM) I eventually was able to ‘turn-off’ my sex drive. If that is even possible. Yes I still got horny and yes I still masturbated almost daily. But the desire to be with someone was absent. I ‘got off’ simply to fulfill my physical need and I went about my day. … Read More #sexdrivestories: Are there two sides to my libido?
