Dear Slutever, I’ve done the whole ‘go out on the weekend and hook-up with a different guy each time.’ I’ve had fuck buddies and casual hookups. I’ve tried celibacy. But all along I’ve wanted to be in a real, serious, monogamous relationship and I’ve settled for these other things because I couldn’t get what I really wanted. Now, I really really want it. But no one is giving me a chance. Not one guy I’ve liked and who I thought…
I visited a shaman to see if psychedelic drugs could cure my commitment phobia (lol).
I’m guest on Alexi Wasser’s new podcast, Love Alexi, on the Nerdist network—yay! Alexi is the author of the amazing relationship website I’m Boy Crazy, which I have been a fan of since I was like 21. Alexi used to host a call-in sex advice radio show (that I was a guest on last year), but now she’s started a new podcast, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Below you can listen to us talk about sex, dating, being…
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.

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.
