First things first, I’d like to congratulate Myra T. for winning The Frisky Fairy Giveaway! Thank you all for entering! I’m hoping to do another giveaway soon! This past weekend I made the trek up to New York City to see one of my very best friends and also visit a few excellent sex-positive locations! Take a look at all the awesome things and places to go! First things first I headed to the Museum of Sex, with my best friend to take a peek at their awesome Funland exhibit! Unfortunately, their boob bounce was deflated and having some reconstructive surgery, so I couldn’t hopRead More →

Please remember to be polite and respectful in the comments. Hello friends! This week I’m discussing a topic that is incredibly close to my heart. This companion to my post So You Think You May Be Poly… has been requested from me multiple times for the friends and family of poly people, to explain the basics of polyamory. This is not a comprehensive guide. In fact, consider this a Part I. First things first, what is Polyamory? If you are hearing about this for the first time, the concept of poly may be bringing up images of religious men with many wives, or crazy sex partiesRead More →

I had been openly poly with my two partners Jon and Kai for almost three years when I met James* in September of 2012. He was handsome, funny, charming, and intelligent. Did I mention charming? I felt so incredibly lucky to have met such a handsome guy on my first real venture into polyamorous dating, and I was enjoying every minute of new relationship energy. In December, after meeting James, I was introduced to Lina*, another girl he was seeing. I spent the next weekend with her, and we swiftly became good friends. The three of us spent time enjoying each other whenever we hadRead More →

This is to serve as both a trigger warning and a warning about NSFW language and/or images. I was intending on writing a lovely post to extol the virtues of my new favorite lube, however, I came home from my vacation to this shit. This post is going to be about the SCOTUS decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. Now, the overall takeaway for this is that Hobby Lobby WILL COVER all of the following forms of birth control: Male condoms Female condoms Diaphragms with spermicide Sponges with spermicide Cervical caps with spermicide Spermicide alone Birth-control pills with estrogen and progestin (“Combined Pill) Birth-control pills with progestinRead More →

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews!  I love dating websites. I cannot hide how much I love dating websites. I love to play on them, and see the new people who are looking for similar things. I like to see how they are policed and the way they are designed. So, when I was contacted by BeyondTwo.com to write a review of their site, I was really excited. My first impressions of BeyondTwo.com are mostly positive. I like that it’s not just a dating site, but is also for networking and creating a community within the polyamorous lifestyle.Read More →

Please remember to be polite and respectful in the comments. I frequently get contacted by people who wonder whether they are polyamorous or not. They ask whether they could even give non-monogamy a shot. Unfortunately there is no real quiz you can take to find out if polyamory is right for you, however some of your current behaviors and beliefs can help you decide whether or not non-monogamy is worth exploring. Are you comfortable with the idea that there is no normal? One of the coolest, and also hardest, parts of polyamory for me personally was the idea that there is no normal. There are so manyRead More →

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews! Been a while folks! I’ve got so much big news coming in the next few weeks that I’m about to pop, but I’ll keep it a secret just a little while longer and torment you all 😀  This week I’m reviewing The Oral Sex Position Guide by Emily Dubberley. I’ve read some of Emily’s work before in Field Guide To F*cking and I was really excited to see more. Unfortunately, I’ve had some feelings about Quiver publishing’s aesthetic choices in the past and this book is no exception. I’m putting this out intoRead More →

What happens when you take a ton of sex educators from around the country (and then some), and put them in a hotel in DC for three days to talk about what they do? Catalyst Con. Obviously. Catalyst Con is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. It is about reaching out and stimulating those who attend to create those important conversations in their own communities, changing how we as a society talk and treat sexuality.  It is about stimulating the activist that is within all of us and sparking transformation in the way our friends, neighbors, children and even politicians discuss one ofRead More →

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews! The first thing I noticed about the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM)- Sexuality Education Certification Series (SECS) was how accessible the building was. You can access the building via public transit, though there is parking in the area. For those who would like to walk, many of the hotels are located within a 5 mile radius. The accessibility to the building was nice, however I loved how the inside of the building takes into account accessibility and inclusiveness that (as you will see) is a large part of what makesRead More →
