[Ed. note: Welcome to Fine China, our new weekly feature wherein Kiala Kazebee brings you the weirdest, wonkiest, lady tingling-est sexual health news about your most exquisite parts. Get it, FINE CHINA, GET IT!?]
It's been years since I've felt the urgent and driving need to have intimate relations inside a vehicle but reading this post reminds me why I stopped, for lack of a better term, doin' it. The awkward seating arrangements, the confusing undergarment situation, the messiness, and the excitement/terror of getting caught eventually led to a cease and desist of car sex in my life. Still...I feel a little wistful, nostalgic even, for my car sex days and the me who threw panties to the wind or whatever and intimately related in cars without fear. Then again, I was usually super-drunk. So there's that.
According to US News and World Report, a study from the Guttmacher Institute has found that sexually active women ages 18-39 with low to middle class incomes are having a difficult time affording contraception due to the recession. These same women who can't afford birth control obviously can't afford the cost of having a child (or for that matter, an abortion). For women who aren't lucky enough to live within easy access to a Planned Parenthood, my only advice is, GAH YOU'RE FUCKED. Sorry. No, really, condoms are cheap. Keep them in your purse next to your lip balm please.
Michelle Obama informed America on Monday that health care is a woman's issue. Andrea wrote this news up nicely
here and I'm not sure why I'm even mentioning this story other than a
sense of sex health news-y obligation as she really nailed it and I
have nothing of value to add and fuck why am I still talking?
Finally, I took a Women's Health quiz today entitled "Test Your Vagina IQ"
and received an 8 out of 13. That's like a D+. Just a little something
to keep in mind when you start wondering why I refer to the "clitoris"
as "that thingy" or the "perineum" as the "bicycle seat place". I blame
Catholic School. And America.
