Everything You Want To Know About Butt Hair (& We Mean Everything)

“Can You Talk To Me About Butt Hair?” is the email subject line I never thought I’d write. Not that butt hair is a rare thing: You have it, I have it, the Kardashians have it (or they did at one point, anyway). But even in a culture of oversharing, in which we talk openly about nipple piercings and pimple popping , this is one topic that nobody really touches (even though we all have questions).So we sent off our queries to derms, OB/GYNs, aestheticians, waxing and laser professionals, and t...

Flirty Text Ideas That'll Let You Know Instantly Whether Or Not They're Into You

Although making a move via text may seem a bit impersonal, it can be a good way to test the waters of a new relationship."You know your crush is receptive to flirting if he or she is responsive," says Barbara Greenberg PhD, a clinical psychologist wh...

The Black Girls' Guide To Shaving

Shaving or hair removal is hardly a requirement — it's your body (and, uhh, body hair), so do with it what you please. But for those who opt for it, shaving can be really annoying to keep up with... especially since body hair grows back so fast. Sometimes, a wax appointment or a couple of laser hair removal sessions aren't in our schedule — or, tbh, our budget — and it's much easier to grab that old three-blade.But, when you've got melanin, special care must be taken to protect your skin when y...

How To Party-fy All The Trends You Bought In On This Year

If you've spent more time thinking about your closet — and the outfit options inside it — over the past few weeks than you have the entire year, you're not alone. Winter doesn't just bring a newfound need for creativity (creating layers that look and feel good is an art), but it also brings a whirlwind of fancy events in such a short period of time; events that oftentimes involve a good slew of Instagrams, and thus, a desire to not repeat said looks. And that's where even more creativity is req...

Comedians joke about discharge, doctors say it's normal, and people with vaginas are used to seeing it in their underwear at the end of the day. But what exactly is the stuff? Is it water? Vagina juice? Sweat? All of the above? These are all good questions, and the answers can vary.Normally, the glands on the walls of your cervix create a clear mucus that drains downward,...

In her series, Taking Back What's Ours, Armitage puts butts front and center, and asks people to reconsider how they see what she calls "an un-gendered body part."Armitage says that female-bodied and femme people often deal with unwanted attention to their bodies, and one way to thwart that is to get society to focus on our butts. Yes, really: "Showcasing our butts gives us a break from that [kind of...

Womens' Bodies Go Unedited In All-Girls Photo Collective

A neatly manicured hand rests behind a woman’s back. She’s got long, lovely hair and her bright, tight underwear lends the photo an air of intimacy -- but as far as fulfilling an idealized fantasy of prettily displayed womanhood, the scene stops there. Between her filed fingernails, she grips an unwrapped tampon. The girl who took the picture, Ashley Armitage, hopes it's a step toward changing our unrealistic expectations for how women should look, on camera and otherwise. A scroll throu...
