This special Valentine’s Day edition of the Sexual Health Round Up looks at the increasing number of pubic hair grooming accidents that land people in the ER, the myth about how many calories sex burns, and the possibility of a ride in a condom cab.
In this week’s sexual health roundup: one study shows us that a significant proportion of women experience post-traumatic stress disorder in women (especially those who don’t use pain medications) while another one suggests that childbirth may improve memory function. A study in men suggests that obesity is linked to erectile dysfunction.
Even a cursory look at correctional and obesity statistics in the United States reveals deep-seated disparities which knee-jerk reactions—in particular those that blatantly ignore color and class—cannot fix.
“Fat Talk” is a ritual with a special prominence between women, in groups or pairs, and makes it more difficult to have a rational, emotion-free relationship with diet and exercise. And that’s why we need to get rid of it.
