Call for Participants: Research Looking for Lesbian/Queer Mothers of Color
This looks like a really great research project.

What’s Missing From The New Research On Anal Play
There’s some new research about women’s experiences of receiving anal play, and it’s worth taking a look at.

Call for Participants: Research on How People Talk About Lube
This came my way and I thought I’d pass it along. It’s a pretty fast survey and it’s in the name of science! See below and pass it on. (BTW- their demographic question on gender isn’t great. I’ve emailed them, but feel free to give them your feedback, too.) The Center for Sexual Health Promotion […]
