This Movember, my vag

A purple disposable razor.

Pubic hair. It spouts out your butt crack. It pokes through your underwear. It sprinkles down your thighs.

It’s visible in all forms of mass media. It’s also visible in societal attitudes, in the ways that sex is discussed in classrooms and in day-to-day life. Perhaps the most…

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.

Sharing is caring

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…
