“I had waited out of principle, and was told by so many people and articles that it would be worth the wait. But it wasn't. It was incredibly, unbelievably painful. And, moreover, it was just plain impossible.” eviemagazine.com/post/i-found-o…
Vaginismus is a medical condition where the muscles of the vagina clench and allow nothing to penetrate.
“It affects at least 5-17% of women. Probably more, because women have been taught by society that bad sex, even painful sex, is normal. So we don't speak out, even when it’s changing our entire life, and quite possibly causing us physical and emotional trauma.”
“Finally, seven years into my marriage, I’m at another turning point in my sexual journey. I have successfully had pain-free sex for over a year.”

In this article, we’re going to discuss the differences between European and American beauty standards and what makes each one unique. @skincareculture eviemagazine.com/post/how-europ…
“European women tend to wear minimal makeup, and they generally avoid doing anything too complicated and time-consuming. It’s rare to see a European woman wearing a full face of makeup on a regular day out.” @skincareculture

People say they wear masks because they “care” so much about others. And yet, I’ve never seen so many people treat complete strangers with disgust and contempt the way I have this last year.
On social media as well. TikTok has completely changed in a year. The comments are so mean. I don’t know how the famous teens on that app handle all the hate.

The “conspiracy theorists” have been more accurate than the “experts.”

I’ve seen women’s sites talk about ways to support small businesses for years. But when @stoolpresidente raises over $17 MILLION to support small businesses, they’re not talking about it. Why??
Imagine how much more money @stoolpresidente could raise for small businesses if people knew where to donate!
For the people saying women’s sites aren’t covering The Barstool fund because women’s sites only support women-owned businesses, Dave isn’t only helping men-owned businesses. He’s supporting both. No excuses.
