Hello my lovelies, I’ve wanted to talk about this for a while and I think we are finally at a point in our relationship where we can talk about this. So… butt sex. I know some people reading this just clenched hard. Don’t worry, it’ll be ok. Why do I think this is so important…

Sexability: its the end of the world as we know it

Hello my lovelies, Sorry I’ve been gone for awhile. Last semester really kicked my ass both physically and emotionally, but I’m back now.

Sexability: the online dating game

Hello Lovelies, I recently read an article in the Globe and Mail by Margaret Wente about the current state of the dating scene for straight women.

Welcome to Sexability!

Hello Dalhousie, and welcome to the first official installment of a weekly column in which I  hope to shed some light on a topic I feel many people wonder about but we don’t discuss: sex and disability. Wait…who are you? Oh I’m sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself. Hi, I’m Vicky! I’m a Gender and…

Let’s talk about sex and disability

When I was asked to write a piece for this issue I was thrilled, but also a little daunted. The topic of sexuality is so broad even if you “narrow it down” to sex and disability. Where the hell do I start? Then it hit me: it’s better to assume you don’t know anything. So…
