Anonymous asked: tell me about vore please
Vore, or vorarephilia is the sexual fetish/kink of being eaten, eating someone, or watching someone get eaten. It can be difficult to act out on, and there’s very little information about it. Many people act out on it through drawn pornography. I will be writing more about vore when I do my series of posts on different fetishes and kinks. I haven’t been able to find any good resources on it, so if any followers know of any good resources let me know.
Anonymous asked: hey, I don't know if tumblr swallowed my question from before... CiSmale, and not directly related to sex education i suppose. But is it normal to have questions about your gender around your late teen years? (I'm 18) I've just started questioning who I really am and I don't really know what to do...
Yes! I started questioning my gender around that age as well, and some don’t question their gender until they’re in their 20s or 30s. I have a lot of resources in my FAQ about different gender identities and about gender. Learning more can help you figure out how you identify.
Anonymous asked: You guys take so long to answer questions :( i've been waiting two weeks..
I know, I’m sorry it takes us so long. Just remember we’re all volunteering to do this and we all have lives that we have to attend to as well. The majority of us are in college and recently had finals, some of us have families, some of us are disabled, but all of us do what we can. It could be that tumblr ate your question, so feel free to resubmit. Tumblr no longer puts the date asked on the questions so I can’t tell how old the questions are or else I’d let you know if we have questions from that long ago. Remember to take a look in the FAQ in case your question is answered there.
Anonymous asked: To the anon having their first gyno visit: honestly, the questions are a bit awkward at first. but it passes quickly. the worst part for me was the opening of the speculum. it just feels weird. that was the worst part for me.
Anonymous asked: I've heard that some STDs can be transmitted even if you haven't had sex with someone who has them. I always use condoms and to my knowledge I've never been with anyone who had anything, but I'm wondering, should I get tested anyway? Also, how often should I get tested? I've heard variously that people should get tested for STDs once every 2 years, once a year or twice a year.
It’s best to get tested once a year, even if you use condoms. If you can, it’s a good idea to get tested in between every new sexual partner as well although of course if you have a lot of sexual partners that’s impossible to do. It’s important to also use protection during oral sex and grinding as STIs can be passed through that way as well.
Anonymous asked: I have a IUD and it tends to make me have a heavy flow when I get my period. So I have to change my pad or tampon almost every 2-3 hours. Would it be ok if I use a vaginal cup? Or would that get in the way of the IUD?
You can use menstrual cups with the IUD just fine! Have you talked to your doctor about the heavy bleeding just to make sure it’s okay? I suggest you do so just in case.
Anonymous asked: My ovulation calendar said my ovulation date was the 12th (Saturday.) My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 8th. I am not on birth control, by the way. We also had unprotected sex three times today (the 13th). My boyfriend didn't pull out, so he did cum inside me all 3 times. What are the possibilities of me getting pregnant? I noticed on Saturday I did have creamy white discharge. So, I assume I was ovulating. Can I still get pregnant the day after ovulation?
If you’re under 25 you can ovulate at any time. Your body is still developing which means your menstrual cycle and discharge changes in ways that you can’t properly predict when you’re going to ovulate. Even if you’re over 25 you need to monitor your cycle, cervical mucus, and temperature for several months to properly identify when you are ovulating and make sure it is regular.
You have anywhere from a 25% chance of pregnancy or higher. You can use a pregnancy test in 3-4 weeks to see if you are pregnant. Still use it even if you have a period, especially if it’s lighter or shorter than usual. If you’re currently not trying to get pregnant I would highly suggest getting on some method of birth control, I discuss all your options in my FAQ.
Anonymous asked: hi, cisf here, so my discharge is white and thicker than usual and it has an odor. i've had a yeast infection before and it was similar, but there was a lot more itchiness then. i'm not sexually active so is there anything else it could be?
It could be due to hormonal changes. Unless there are more changes I really wouldn’t worry too much.
Anonymous asked: Can you get HSV1 genitally if you have it orally?
Unless you have an immune system issue, no. You can however get HSV-2 genitally even if you have HSV-1 orally.
TW: Tr*nny slur
Anon: Do FtM tranny people have to still go to a gyno?
FYSE: Yes, trans* men and other DFAB (designated female at birth) gender variant people still need to see the gynecologist as they can still develop the same problems any other DFAB person goes through.
The correct word is trans gender, trans, or trans*. NEVER use the word tranny. It is a slur and used for violence against trans* people (specifically trans women).
Anonymous asked: why are abnormal clots with periods dangerous?
Clots usually come with heavy periods, the main thing is that large clots can be an indication of a condition like PCOS or Endometriosis that can make your periods really heavy. Heavy periods can also cause anemia. Other things that can cause large clots include Fibroids, medication side effects, hormonal changes, miscarriage, or endometrial cancer. It’s good to get checked out just in case, although it could just be normal hormonal changes.
Anonymous asked: For the first time gyno anon: It won't hurt, but it won't exactly be comfortable either. If anything hurts, let the doctor know! I was scared the first time, but it wasn't scary at all in the end!
Anonymous asked: I have my first gyno visit, what should I expect/should I shave down there?
From the FAQ:
Q: I’m going to my first gynecological exam. What should I expect?
A: They’ll probably start off by taking your normal medical information (weight, height, blood pressure etc.) then you’ll meet your doctor. Probably talk about your medical, family and sexual history, bring up any concerns, problems or pain you have. Then you’ll go to the pap smear.
During a regular pap smear they’ll have you lay down on the doctor’s table, your hips at the edge of it with your feet in stirrups. Tell them about your pain with penetration and they’ll probably use a small speculum. They’ll put lubrication on it and slip it in your vagina then open it to look at your cervix. They might take a culture, which is just rubbing a q-tip along the wall of your vagina to test it and make sure bacterial growth is normal. They’ll also put gloved and lubed fingers in to feel around and make sure everything is healthy.
After that you’re all done!
You definitely don’t have to shave if you don’t want to. They’ve seen every manner of bush so it isn’t a big deal.
Anonymous asked: Transman,14,pre-all,virgin. I have a question about periods. Every time, it's horrendously painful and heavy. The cramps are just awful and it's impossible to even move without at least a heating pad. I need 2 ibuprofen for it to stop, cramps usually last 2-3 days. It also feels like I'm in the bathroom every 20 minutes to keep from leaking for four days, after semi-heavy old blood for 2-3 days. Is this normal or..? Women in my family have more testosterone than most which might have an effect?
I would see a doctor for that. Anytime periods are that painful it could be caused by something serious or at the very least it could be treated. Write down all your symptoms that you get during your period, how heavy they are, how long they last, how often they occur, and describe the pain. Then talk to a doctor and tell them all of that and they’ll decide what they want to do.
Anonymous asked: Hi there! TransgenderM. So a couple of days ago I tried anal for my first time. Everything went smoothly, I used enough lube to make sure everything went okay and over all, it was a really enjoyable experience. About a day later, I tried to do it again but I couldn't get anything in very far no matter how much I relaxed or how much lube I used. It wasn't so much as pain when I tried but more of my body refused to let it in. Any ideas as to why?
It could be that you weren’t as aroused as before, that your mind was preoccupied with different things, or it could just be it wasn’t working. Sometimes no matter how hard you try, sex just doesn’t work out. It should be fine the next time.
