Here's why the answer is always 'Yes!'
Many women suffer vaginal and sexual health problems in silence as they age but few discuss it with their doctors. Despite being a society saturated in sexual images, important, helpful sex information about conditions like vaginal dryness, painful sex and low desire simply are not discussed.

Many first grade children will finish the school year with no dictionary words for their genitals; and some fourth grade girls will start bleeding from a place in their body for which they either have no name, a family name or, if they are lucky, a dictionary word.
We learned that certain children at Thorncliffe Park Public School would be taught that they have "private body parts" rather than penises and vaginas. I guess that means that boys and girls are all the same below the waist at Thorncliffe Park. How is that going to work?

We all grew up absorbing messages through jokes, comments and "feminine hygiene" ads that suggest women's vulvas (the outer genitals) and vaginas (the inner parts) are dirty, smelly, ugly and taste bad -- usually with a reference to salty fish. It is high time that we debunk some of those myths to help us all -- those of us of all genders -- to better understand and celebrate the healthy truth about our intimate body parts!
It turns out involuntarily peeing your pants is NOT okay. We are not speaking from a social standpoint, where walking around with urine-soaked pants is frowned upon. This is strictly medical -- your vagina should not leak. Think of your vagina like a basement foundation, any leak is bad; small, medium or large.
If there's one thing guaranteed to make a class of Canadian second-graders giggle, it's asking them the capital of Saskatchewan. And apparently, that works on fully-grown football fans too. After Seat...

You may think you know exactly where the vagina is, but if you were asked to draw it out on a piece of paper, you'd likely be just as confused as some of the women above. In a short video by Fusion, f...
Our vaginas can often seem like unknown worlds to us, and once you start reading facts about them, you soon realize there's only a lot more to learn. The infographic below, posted on IFL Science! and...
Women over 50 are buying vibrators, dildos and sensuous toys in record numbers. This trend makes sense from a sexological perspective. The body changes after 50, and these toys can be practical and helpful in accommodating these changes. But which toy makes sense after menopause?
Watching The View this morning the controversy whirred around reproductive parts, and what we, as parents, should be teaching our children to call them. The consensus: It just doesn't seem right to hear a little girl referring to her breasts. Boobies is much cuter. Because we're concerned about the cuteness of these body parts on a seven-year-old?
There's myriad ideologies that stop women from having a healthy relationship with their privates including: negative socialization, lack of education and exposure when young, stigma when admitting they masturbate, and the list goes on and on. Bottom line: until the average gal can have a positive relationship with her vulva, enjoying sex to the maximum will probably be out of her grasp.
Throughout my youth, I was both fascinated and jealous of the relationship men had with their penises. As a result you could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out men are just as uptight about their penises as women are about their vulvas. It's just a different kind of uptight.
If your vagina could smile, it would -- if you're keeping it healthy that is. Just like any part of the body, keeping a healthy vagina means taking care of surface areas, avoiding chemicals and liste...
For over a hundred years, sex researchers, feminists and pop culture have been enmeshed in an ongoing debate as to which is superior: the vaginal or clitoral orgasm. Regrettably, their high-brow ponderings have left the average gal in their wake wondering whether her orgasm is either real or even the best one.
Ladies, do you really know what happens when you get a tingly sensation down there? Dr. Alyssa Dweck, gynecologist and co-author of "V is for Vagina," a guide on everything one needs to know about vaj...
No one is content to let Valentine's Day just be Valentine's Day anymore -- there was the early 2000s usurping of the date by the Vagina Monologues, there's some clever folks who came up with National...
