Preparing for Your First Gay Date

Date Location

One of the first things you need to do is plan a location for your date. Based on your personal preferences and what you know about your date, you should have at least some ideas. While it is possible that the other person would suggest something as well, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared and plan a few locations.

That doesn’t have to be anything fancy, and you should focus on a place where both you and your partner would feel comfortable. While the first impression is essential, you don’t need to go somewhere extreme and …

What Is Lesbian Sex?

However, the situation is a bit more complex. Let’s start from the beginning. The term cisgender is used to describe a person whose gender identity is in line with the sex assigned to them at birth. In our case, a ciswoman is a person who was assigned to be a woman at birth, and they also

Anal Hooks: A BDSM Guide

Did you know that anal hooks were invented in Neverland? Apparently, there was a battle between Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Peter yelled out, “You won’t get away with this, Captain Hook!” To that, the captain responded, “Oh, yes, I absolutely w— Wait, did you just call me Captain Hook? Because of the hand?! Wow! I mean, my mom has passed away too, why don’t you call me Captain Dead Mom as well?” To save Peter from appearing insensitive, Tinker Bell conjured an anal hook. That, to be honest, backfired and sparked an entirely different, yet equally awkward conversation.

It’s been years since this (may or may not have) happened, and today anal hooks are used all over the world, not just Neverland. Once you look up an anal hook and see what it looks like, it’ll be clear to you why we call it like that and what it’s

Financial Plan for LGBT Couples

Some Financial Advice for LGBT Couples

At first glance, it seems superfluous to have financial advisors for LGBT couples. What does sexuality have to do with any of it? Why would straight-couple budget control be different to how gays handle their finances? Well, you may say they aren’t, but the reality is that most same-sex couples face more obstacles than straight couples.

In 2015, same-sex marriage became legal in the United States. Before that, LGBT couples couldn’t be legally recognized as a couple, and they simply didn’t have a financial plan of their own. In 2016, a year after the legalization, a survey showed that LBGT couples had fewer retirement and savings plans. Additionally, they usually didn’t have a will or estate plans, nor any form of life insurance. Well, it’s time we changed that. Let’s take a look at some money tips for gay couples!

Hot or Cold: How do you Like Your Glass Dildos?

People have been into temperature play for ages. While more extreme temperatures are common in BDSM, you can find elements of this sex play anywhere. To make everything even more exciting, you can add toys to ensure that you have an unforgettable night. 

We will cover here everything you need to know about temperature play, how to do it, and if there is something you need to be careful about. 

What Is Temperature Play

Temperature play is a form of BDSM in which a person uses heat or cold to stimulate neuroreceptors in the body. That can increase skin sensation and can be quite thrilling if you are into it.

You can also use various toys for temperature play, and

The Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage in the U.S. — A Timeline

It’s become common knowledge that same-sex marriage was legalized in 2015. However, you may not be familiar with the full details of how this decision came to be. The struggle for marriage equality was a long, controversial, and even scandalous process. It lasted for many decades, and it has become a major part of U.S. history. Keep reading for a full breakdown of the legalization of same-sex marriage in the U.S. and explore the timeline of the most important laws and events. 

The 2015 Decision 

Same-sex marriage has been legal in the United States. for quite some time now after the Obergefell v. Hodges case in 2015. This civil rights case ended with a decision by the United States Supreme Court to make all same-sex marriages legal in all U.S. states. What’s more, same-sex couples gained the same rights, responsibilities, and federal benefits as opposite-sex couples. 

Essentially, the Supreme Court

10 Ways Modern Gay Relationships Differ From Straight Ones

We all like to preach that love is love and that all relationships should be the same. But that’s not exactly the case, is it? Alright, alright, don’t get your panties in a bunch! We didn’t mean it like that! All relationships are equally worthy (or should be) in the eyes of the law, and love really is love. The Supreme Court says so, and we wholeheartedly agree! 

But the fact remains that the dynamic of same-sex relationships is quite different than the one the majority of straight couples have.

Some of the differences are easy to explain. When no societal stereotypes are pressuring either of the partners, the way the couple goes about their daily life changes. Some traditionalists (and bigots) can’t seem to grasp this concept. 

Stereotypes, gender-specific (and oppressive) roles, and other nonsense that straight couples have to deal with aren’t exactly the main issue in same-sex

Why We’re Having More Same-Sex Relationships Than Ever

Data collected from 28,000 adults between 1989 and 2014 found that more and more Americans answered “yes” to this question. In fact, in the early 2000s, twice as many U.S. adults reported having had at least one same-sex partner in their lifetime as compared to the early 1990s. (The study, which I co-authored with Ryne Sherman and Brooke Wells, was published today in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.) The percentage of men who had had sex with at least one man rose from 4.5% to 8.2%, and the percentage of women who had sex with at least one woman went from 3.6% to 8.7%.

Almost all of this increase is due to more people having sexual partners of both genders—bisexual behavior. People generally felt freer to have sex with both men and women if they chose. Acceptance of same-sex sexuality also shot up, with 49% saying it …
