This comic was made for Cards Against Humanity's 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit by Erika Moen. 

I’m just going to address this quickly because I still get funny looks/questions/laughed at when I talk about wearing condoms, using condoms or buying condoms. Indeed, my spouse and I both have vaginas, but we use condoms regularly. The problem (and my frustration) is:
A. Not everyone uses condoms right now, especially people who don’t have penises
B. Some people without penises really need to use condoms 
For some education on why you should use condoms, even if you don’t have a penis or don’t use a penis in sex:
The rate of HPV that’s spreading and how easily it’s spread is scary, and can lead to full-blown cancer. Someone in my family had pre-cancerous cells found in them and they still have to get regular check-ups to be screened for cancer in their cervix. There are also a ton of other STI’s that can be had from fluid contact (vagina to vagina included, or even from fingers, tongues, etc.) and shared toy use.
Also, a lot of common toys, especially dildos, are made from materials that can’t be sanitized effectively, so not only does that increase a risk of passing along STIs, but it also can lead to bacterial infections from the toys never being able to be truly cleaned, or other nasty reactions from non-medical-grade PVC or other materials that your body doesn’t like.
So, people who have vaginas or use toys: USE CONDOMS AND USE THEM EFFECTIVELY, as this comic demonstrates. Use them as dental dams, use them on your fingers, use them on your toys, use them for switching between vaginal and anal play, etc. etc. You can very literally save your, or someone else’s life, and I feel like the only time condoms are brought up is when there’s a penis involved. There’s no excuse not to be safe, and that includes not having a penis.

Reblogging again for the FANTASTIC information above. Condoms don’t just protect hetero couples from babies, they protect EVERYONE from STIs, bacteria, and infection no matter what you’re putting where!

Source: Understanding the phenomenon of synesthesia.

Follow Francesca Mura on Pinterest

I experience forms of this. 

I have grapheme-color synesthesia. I made a post about it, like, a year ago. Where did I put that thing? Anyway, I’m an associator. :D

I remember reading about this in horrible science when I was young. There was a guy could apparently remember everything in his life due to synesthesia. I also remember he once told someone: “What a crumbly yellow voice you have!”

No formal diagnosis but ordinal-linguistic personification represent! It’s letters, numerals, and months for me. Letters are the strongest one.

reblogging with all the crap because it has the source but oh hey, i’m actually confirmed by a doctor to have this. it’s the most frustratingly beautiful thing.

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.

Asexual and Pregnant and That’s Okay!

elisaintime:

I want to share this letter someone sent me about their concerns about the implications of my pregnancy in light of my public asexuality, as well as my reply and their subsequent response, just in case there is anyone else out there who might have similar concerns or questions. 
I am always open to LGBTQIA-related discussions, and am proud to represent my place in humanity’s spectrum!

My friend elisaintime writes some good stuff about asexuality and sexual behavior.

Thank you.

For those who would ever need it. -C

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

BDSM Links and Resources: Desires-of-a-dominant-man.tumblr.com

Desires-of-a-dominant-man ::

I thought I would update the list of BDSM links and resources I posted a while ago, as some links were no longer working and I had several new ones to add, including a list of books. These should be particularly helpful to those who are new to BDSM and looking to explore D/s relationships, as the best way to go about that is to first read everything you can and then read even more! Not only will this allow you to educate yourself, help keep you safe and avoid any potential mistakes or regrets, but also the more you understand something, the less intimidating it will seem.

If you have anything to add, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I will update this list, in particular if there any books that a submissive might find helpful or informative, as most of the books I have read or included are intended for Dominants.

Note: For the sake of consistency and readability, I have used capitals throughout this document and have not used lower case when referring to submissives or slaves.

Websites:

  • Babygirls ‘n’ Daddy Doms: Website dedicated to littles, babygirls and Daddy Doms, with a lot of useful information on the subject.
  • Collarme: A free BDSM dating website and community, that is probably the most popular and a better option than the commercial alternatives.
  • DS Arts: Academy of DS Arts, fairly self explanatory.
  • Evil Monk: Ambrosio’s BDSM Website, featuring many useful articles.
  • Fetlife: An online BDSM community that I would highly recommend and which is perhaps best described as Facebook for the kinky, allowing users to create a profile, publish photos or writing and join interest groups where you can ask questions.
  • Kink Academy: An online resource with many educational and instructional videos on various aspects of BDSM, although users must pay a small fee to access all of the content.
  • Submissive Guide: As the name suggests, this is an online resource for submissives.
  • The Iron Gate: A general BDSM online resource, with many aticles, essays and even stories on the subject.
