You know how there are many states that irresponsibly still believe (or, at least, their politicians pretend to believe) that kids shouldn’t be taught about birth control in sex education classes? Fortunately, one state is actually taking a step forward! More
Topic: Birth Control
Nobody has the right to make reproductive choices for you — and that includes forced abortions. More
Prescription birth control costs more in low income areas than it does in high income areas, which is absolutely crazy and terrible. And yet, true! Sick, Sad World The Huffington Post reports: The cost data came from MyFloridaRx.com, a website developed by the … More
I’m a hardworking, highly entrepreneurial woman, and I would like more socialism, please, so I can go about creating jobs. (I’ll explain, stick with me.) More
When you picture the average buyer of soymilk, what do you see? An aging hippie, perhaps? An old head whose interest in radical politics has mellowed out into an abiding love of vegetarian food and a vote for Barack Obama? A beat up Volvo with a “Keep Abortion Legal” bumper sticker on the back? More
Women being allowed to make decisions for their own bodies AND access to free birth control? No. Way. More
A few days ago, we published a post that a lot of you didn’t like called 10 Reasons I Stopped Birth Control Pills. So now, I’m offering a counterpoint of sorts. As someone who’s been on the pill since high school, I’ve had a pretty positive experience with it over the years, so I thought I should share my own reasons for loving it.

If you’re a frequent (or infrequent, even) reader of The Gloss, you know that we are big fans of birth control and sex education. We think women deserve to make their own individual reproductive choices, whether it’s to abstain from … More
Do you ever find yourself getting down with somebody and realize you lack a condom, but you’re too tipsy to drive to the store and unwilling to wake up your stupid roommate? More
Condoms have long been considered a “necessary evil” in the sex and dating world. While I feel the term “necessary evil” is silly with regard to condoms because they’re not remotely evil (unlike Spanx, which are similarly tight but serve a much less important purpose yet have garnered the same title).
