Sex, for the good, for the bad, for the thrills, and for the chills is always an experience. And there are so many different experiences to be had! This week's Sex Stories We Love explores some different ways folks out there are experiencing a wide range of sexual activities.

69 Redux

I'll admit—having never watched more than 15 minutes of the show—I had no idea Sex in the City had a hand in giving good ol' 69 a bad rep. The very concept of the sexiest number has definitely taken a dip in popularity. You're more likely to hear people be down on the double go down. Not Holly Bradshaw, though! I haven't read such an enthusiastic editorial on 69 in a long time! Being of my own particular body, I'll say I'm a fan, too, but I can certainly understand those who might find a soixante-neuf to be uncomfortable or just not for them. If anything might persuade you to try this particular position, Holly's wanton words might do it!

The Joy of Rimming


You'll never forget your first rimming experience, whether you're giving or receiving. It is one of the most intense sexual experiences you'll ever feel. While rimming remains somewhat taboo because of fears related to hygiene and potential pain, it is making strides toward more mainstream acceptance. As anal sex in general has opened people up to new pleasure potentials, analingus remains on another level of intimacy. Emma London offers a reflection on her first experience rimming someone that is bought thought and sexy while also being full of useful information.

The Spectrum of Relationships

For far too long, a belief has persisted that people who have neurodevelopmental disorders should not be sexual. This cruel and unfair assumption has robbed many people with autism spectrum disorder, Tourrette's, and other issues and related problems of pleasure and relationship potential for decades. Fortunately, we're starting to understand that people across the neuro-spectrum are craving and able to have strong relationships, including sex, when they are offered guidance along with autonomy. Reading Paul and Grace's experiences reminds us that all people need to work on their relationship and communication skills. This particular couple just needs to work in specific ways.

Deflating Poppers

Mixing sex and substances remains a very controversial topic. Regardless of whether we're talking about alcohol, marijuana, hallucinogens, or others, bringing any type of additive to a sexual connection can be difficult to manage. There are many arguments for and against chemicals, such as poppers, to sex. For many, poppers are believed to be a harmless addition to sex, particularly in the gay community. However, not everyone feels that way. There are certainly two sides to every story, and LeNair Xavier is here to represent the 'No to Poppers' side of the debate. How do you feel about using poppers for sex?

Blowjob Bandwagon

For many folks, oral sex is the main event of the sexual circus. Regardless of your orientation or gender, being on the receiving end of good head can be utterly sensual, wildly thrilling, intensely intimate, and the cause of some of the best orgasms you'll ever experience. Everybody is going to experience oral pleasure in different ways, but for those who have a penis, these recollections and reminiscences of blowjobs are certainly relatable. Movies, television, and porn place a lot of emphasis on hummers. Has this put more emphasis on the act or is the act so beloved that, well, everyone, just wants some mouth action?

More Than a Couplet

Finally, let's get a little lyrical, with an ode to non-monogamy. Is this how your relationship feels for you?
