Lizzi Sandell tells the story of the year she went lez—more specifically, how she met and fell in love with her girlfriend, after having previously only dated men.
Simone de Beauvoir—acclaimed author of The Second Sex, and long time partner of Jean-Paul Sartre—was one of the most important figures in both feminism and philosophy. Since today is her birthday, Kristen Cochrane reminds us why she was such a bad bitch.
For my latest Vogue piece, I did a recap of all the best sex stuff that happened in 2015 (aka the year that LOVE WON) from the year’s sexiest movies, to the best TED Talk on relationships, to the pop culture icons who are revolutionizing the way we think about sexual identity.

OMG I was a guest on BoyCrazy Radio, Alexi Wasser’s sex and relationship call-in show. This was seriously a “moment” for me, since I’ve been reading Alexi’s blog, I’m Boy Crazy, for like 7 years now or something crazy. If you want to hear me and Alexi attempt to give people advice (lol) and also rant about our own relationships problems, you can do that below! Disclaimer: I was pretty drunk when this was recorded because it was on the night…
When you’re in a serious, long-term relationship, the terms “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” can begin to feel a bit juvenile, or at least insufficient for describing your level of commitment. But what do you call the person you share a life with when you’re not married, and don’t necessarily want to be? By Erika Allen. Photo by Ryan McGinley.
What the F is a “dry orgasm?” Why is MILF porn so unbelievably popular? What should you do when anal sex unexpectedly gets messy (and what can you do to help make sure it doesn’t)? Dr. Zhana (AKA Slutever’s “Ask a Sex Researcher” and I went on HuffPost’s “Love + Sex” podcast to answer 11 sex questions that you might be too shy to ask your friends.
A couple weeks ago, I (Karley) had the pleasure of speaking on a panel at the Frieze Art Fair. The panel was about female attractiveness—how does society assess who’s “hot,” and what gives a person value? The most powerful part of the panel, in my opinion, was when Grace Dunham (sister of Lena) gave a speech so perfectly breaking down the culture of self-worth, so I wanted to share her speech with you here.
What does the “perfect couple” look like? It’s hard to say anymore, because gender and marriage equality are fucking that shit up! Mwahhahaa! My new Breathless for Vogue is about modern love role models, featuring Frank and Claire Underwood, Cara Delevingne and many more! Read it HERE :)
And…. the winners of the Vagina Valentine’s Day Contest are….?!!? Last week, I asked people to send me their stories about the best, weirdest, most romantic, grossest or tragic thing that ever happened to them on Valentine’s Day, in exchange for one of my Slutever Vaj Tees. I finally picked the winners! Also, I hope you’re having a good V-Day. Mine so far has been awful, actually, but I hope seeing Fifty Shades this afternoon will make it better (I…
Mystery Train <3 On Valentine’s Day, you should suck, but your gift shouldn’t. Personally, I’ve always preferred being given a gift that’s useful, rather than something that feels like a thoughtless gesture (especially when that thoughtless gesture has like 40 grams of fat in it). Sure, flowers are pretty, but when your date shows up with flowers on a special occasion–an anniversary, V-day, a birthday, etc–that’s a surefire sign that he or she put no thought into your gift at…
