A Scientific Look at Women's Sexual Desire

Found this article in today's NYT about studies on female arousal and orientation. It's long but it's pretty interesting.

How Gender Inequalities at JMU Affect the Social Scene

Mary Thompson gave this article for my Women's Studies class to read, and I completely agree with it. One person in my class claimed that she felt that JMU was a kind of safe haven for feminism because there were simply so many females here. But I think the opposite: it wasn't until a few months ago, after 3 years of relationships and ecnounters with disrespectful and degrading men at JMU that I started to identify with feminist beliefs and was able to call myself a feminist. Yay first blog entry by babz!

DAILY DOUBLE: sex during your period (again) AND vaginas + soap

I just happened to come across a short youtube video about sex on your period that kind of showcases the different attitudes. Sarah Silverman's in it--whatever that means to you...

Also, quick standup mentioning soap + vaginas.

Hey guys, I've been trying to do some research on soaps for women, because I've read that we shouldn't use just regular soap to wash our hoo-has. Apparently it can screw up our natural pH balances. Does anyone know of any good options for soaps with a lower pH that's maybe more natural? What do you all do?

I found this website when searching but I'm sure there's more options out there.
