Let's Talk About Sex

By Jillian Eugenios From Curve Magazine

Let’s talk about sex, baby.

Or, about how women don’t seem to be talking about it—at least not to our
friends at The Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University.
The researchers have been collecting data for the largest contemporary
examination of how women have sex with women but numbers have been
dragging. They have conducted similar surveys with heterosexual groups
and gay men, whose community response numbers have been 30,000 and
23,000, respectively. The lesbians? Lagging behind at 1,300 globally.
Ladies, we can do better than that.

The researchers are a passionate team looking to really understand
how women relate to one another sexually. The information learned from
the study will be used by sexual educators to promote pleasure, as well
as by medical professionals looking to help women identify ways to protect
themselves from risks. All this info will hopefully lead to safer and
happier sex for our community.

As the Indiana researchers have pointed out, current knowledge of
sexual pleasure and risk between women is largely based on either
heterosexual models of sex or on information gathered from relatively
small groups of women. Let’s change that.

The survey takes 20 minutes, it’s anonymous, and in the end you get a coupon

Win, win.
