sexuality and health
“Sexual health is more than freedom from sexual disease or disorders … Sexual health is non-exploitive and respectful of self and others … Sexual health is dependent upon an individual’s well-being and sense of self-esteem. Sexual health requires trust, honesty, and communication.”
— Eli Coleman, Ph.D., Director, Program in Human Sexuality, University of Minnesota Medical School

As a “sex addict”, you can obviously get away with a lot more than some girl who is merely a slutty slut, and enhance your fame and reputation as a wild playboy at the same time.

Media articles on contraception surveys and how silly teh wimminz are pretty much always bother me. For a whole variety of reasons. Here’s one of them.
