24 Charts To Help You Have Safe Sex
Date: Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:47:05 -0500
From buzzfeed.com

The more control you have over your sexual and reproductive health, the better off you'll be. Here's what you need to know.

For not getting pregnant.

For not getting pregnant.

Implants and IUDs, two long-acting reversible contraception methods, are both over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. For other types of birth control, "typical use" typically includes occasional mistakes -- making them less effective (although better than nothing!). Read more: Why is the most effective form of birth control -- the IUD -- also the one no one is using?, via Time.com.

THAT SAID, condoms (and other barrier methods) are the only form of birth control that can minimize your risk of contracting or spreading sexually transmitted infections (STIs) during sex. So unless you are in a mutually monogamous relationship, and both you and your partner have been tested for STIs, be sure to use condoms.

For controlling your future.

For controlling your future.

Take control over your future: Use contraception consistently and correctly. Being proactive about when and if you have children gives you much greater control over your life choices. See more on that here.

Guttmacher Institute / Via guttmacher.org

For not contracting or spreading STIs.

This is important info, whether you're in college or not. Some other important info:

Condoms can help minimize your risk of spreading and transmitting STIs, but they don't provide 100% protection -- some infections are spread via skin-to-skin contact, for instance, which means that condoms aren't fully protective against them.

That said, while not all STIs are curable, they can all be treated and managed with appropriate medical care. The best thing you can do for yourself and your partners is to get tested, know your status, and get the treatment and care you need. And use condoms. They're not perfect, but they're definitely better than nothing.

Quick side note: What's the difference between STIs and STDs? Diseases have noticeable symptoms, while infections don't necessarily have any (YET). Find out more here. For the sake of inclusiveness, I'll be referring to any sexually transmittable infection as an STI throughout this article. If that's confusing to you, just imagine me saying "STD" instead.

I'm A New Mom — What If I Never Work Full-Time Again?
Date: Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:42:10 -0500
From buzzfeed.com

Jenny Chang/BuzzFeed

Until last February, when I had my first child, I had never not worked. But then a three-month maternity leave from an editing job turned into a six-month hiatus while I cared for my daughter, and then six months rolled into nine. One day, I went to the New York Public Library to do some research. This was a treat for me -- to leave Brooklyn for a few hours ALONE and sit in a library to read. I got coffee and sat on the steps, but then decided to leave the library and go shopping instead. I realized, sitting there, that I hadn't really shopped for myself in months. The experience -- formerly mundane, I generally hate shopping -- was delightful simply because it didn't happen much anymore.

I browsed at a few stores, and then, heading back to the library, I thought, I should have bought that dress at H&M, so I decided to return to the store. As I was paying for the dress, I realized: For the first time in two decades, I didn't have my own money. Not really. Whatever money was going to pay for this, it wasn't mine. My husband had earned it.

I do want to be clear that I consider my husband's money to be my own and I have zero qualms at this stage in life about spending it. The division of labor (though I don't consider caring for a child to be "labor" so much as it is "living") runs like this: I take care of our daughter, I manage our finances, I take out the trash, I run the errands and cook the meals, I take the dog to the vet, and I call the plumber when a pipe bursts. He works. At a job. For money. He works a lot and very hard. We both work equal amounts of hard, and we're OK with this arrangement. Therefore, I have earned the right to spend his money, which isn't, in fact, his. It's ours.

Still, through almost a decade of marriage, we mostly had kept our money separate: We had a joint checking account for bills, but we each had our own personal accounts where our paychecks were deposited twice a month. When bill time came around, I simply wrote a check from my husband's bank account and deposited the money into our joint account. And even though he always made more money than I, we had always split our rent (and subsequently, our mortgage) and bills equally. I was simply left with much less in my account after paying the bills than he had. But after my daughter was born, I stopped making any money at all. We merged all of our accounts together since mine would've quickly emptied left on its own.

None of this reasoning made the pill any less bitter to swallow as I stood in front of the cashier at H&M, swiping my American Express for a $45 dress. I hadn't relied on another human being to pay for my clothes since I was 18 years old. It felt weird, foreign, and terrifying. I was used to budgeting in my mind -- just ballparking -- a month's expenses. For several years I knew that after paying my bills and adding to my savings account, I would have a specific amount left over for going out or books or clothes -- spending money. Suddenly, with the baby and the joblessness, my whole formula for living and money was gone. What now? How much money did I have? None? Would every dollar I spent that was not for groceries or baby gear sting me? Should I curb my spending? Should I stop getting my nails done? I wasn't sure: Part of me knew that, since I'm not an extravagant spender to begin with, I wasn't a huge burden on the family finances even without my income. But the other part of me revolted: I cannot live this way. Or can I? I thought through my recent purchases. Surely, I told myself, I'm not spending much on "myself," the human Laura. Surely, most of my spending is for the common good: the baby's diapers and clothing and toys I didn't blink at; the groceries, the bills, the dog food. But a perusal of my credit card bill gave me pause: There were books -- not child care or even "work" related -- which were all me. There was makeup I bought from Sephora. And I shuddered when I saw gifts I had purchased for my husband.

I never dreamed the entire time I was pregnant that I wouldn't just go back to work after three months, that I could potentially spend the rest of my life completely reliant on my husband financially. Now it seems completely naive, but it had literally never occurred to me.

For my entire adult life -- until now -- I've been employed full-time. Employment followed me through college and grad school, a stint in a band, and a move to Brooklyn from Pittsburgh to live with a guy I had only known for two months. I paid my own way through college, and have supported myself since I was 18. I worked mostly because I had to -- there simply wasn't anyone else around who was going to take care of me or pay my rent and tuition, but also because it's how I was built. I enjoy it. I enjoyed waiting tables, and was always the person taking extra shifts or working weekends when I started blogging, even when the latter didn't translate into extra income. But the economics of working have always been clear to me as well: I would sink or swim by my own hand. Mostly I swam, and I took comfort in balancing my checkbook over the years, knowing that I was independent.

Until I wasn't.

When my child was 6 months old, I began casually interviewing for jobs that piqued my interest. I took meetings and talked to people about new opportunities -- editing jobs I would have killed for a crack at just a year earlier -- and here I was, moseying along, unsure of "what I wanted." And I'm aware that even being able to consider "what I wanted" is itself a privilege; I am fortunate that my family could afford to consider the option of me simply staying home, with no dependable income, because we could live comfortably on my husband's salary. But being able to stay home and actually doing it -- a previously inconceivable life choice just months earlier -- are two very different things. Still, I was faced with this cold reality: I simply didn't value the idea of work as I previously had.

By 9 months, my daughter was actually fun to hang out with: She stayed awake for longer stretches, she laughed at my jokes. We were having a good time and my new mom anxieties were passing. I was happier as a mother than I had thought I would be. My husband and I were married for seven years before trying in earnest to have a baby, mostly because of my ambivalence about having one. We had a full life together, and I have always been very, very busy on my own: with work, reading, cooking, and sewing. I sometimes had trouble imagining how or where a baby, and then child, would fit into that. So though I wasn't in a hurry to have a child, I knew that we did want one -- eventually. And then, "eventually" arrived. During pregnancy I told myself it would be OK. The baby wouldn't be that much work, really, and I could get back to some semblance of a normal life after a few months. I wasn't prepared for the reality that I might not want to go back to "normal."

I reasoned that freelancing would give me the flexibility I now wanted: to work from home, or not work on a given day, if my daughter was sick. I thought that some time away from me would also be good for her, socially and emotionally. But I also knew that financially, it would be hard: I would need some form of child care in order to get any writing done, which would add to our expenses, and making any sort of living freelancing is hard to work out on paper, let alone in reality.

Due almost completely to a conversation with my husband Josh, I decided to give freelancing a shot. "In your ideal scenario," he said, "what would you do? You can do exactly what you want to do. Don't make a decision out of fear." Well, that's a refreshing perspective! I thought.

That was more than six months ago. Since then, I've made more money from my writing, which has helped some of the weirdness pass away. But it's nothing close to what I spend just by being alive, and I can't help the thought from crossing my mind every now and again: I am living beyond my means. My means of nearly zero. Even now there are days where, out of guilt or some feeling I can't name, I'll pay for my lipstick at Sephora out of my savings account, the money I squirrelled away for years, never knowing how much it would mean in the future. Coming to terms with the fact that my personal expenses didn't simply disappear when my income did has been surprisingly difficult.

The freelancing experiment is going well: I'm writing more and adjusting to a new way of life. I feel confident that in the next half year I'll bring home more money than I have in the last half. But my new reality is that, for the next few years, income inequality will be a daily fact of life in my marriage, even more than it was for the first decade. I'm viewing freelancing as essentially a stopgap during the early years of my child's life: I get the fulfillment of spending some of my time working, with flexibility and near-constant contact with my daughter. I am fortunate and extremely grateful for the opportunity to do so.

In many ways, I am actually "having it all" -- except a salary, of course. If I have learned anything "on the job" this past year, it's that the U.S. is still failing, and failing so hard, the millions of women who have children each year and have fewer or no options. We don't routinely provide health care, maternity leave, or child care to families, the last of which is a necessity to go back to work. Many parents don't have paid sick days, or vacation time to spend as needed when a child inevitably gets sick or school is canceled.

My mother stayed home with her children for almost 15 years. I'm not sure it's what she wanted to do: My parents simply couldn't make any math work where she could earn enough to offset child care expenses. So yes, I feel fortunate to even have been able to ask myself the question: What do I want to do?

I still don't have an answer.

Does The G-Spot Actually Exist?

Never mind all the sex moves meant to stimulate it, the strategies to find it, and the vibrators engineered to hit it in just the right way. When you get right down to it, is the G-spot really a thing...or is it just a sexual gimmick that we've all convinced ourselves is somewhere in there?

Jenny Chang for BuzzFeed

Because, based on a quick Google search, it looks like lots of people are REALLY sure it's all a lie.

Because, based on a quick Google search, it looks like lots of people are REALLY sure it's all a lie.

This might be because a major 2012 review in the Journal of Sexual Medicine concluded that "objective measures have failed to prove strong and consistent evidence for the existence of an anatomical site that could be related to the famed G-spot." The research said they couldn't find anything using imaging devices or tissue specimens. Womp womp.

First, let's talk about where that term came from. The G-spot is something that became popular back in the 1980s.

You can trace it back to the 1982 book The G Spot: And Other Recent Discoveries About Human Sexuality by Alice Kahn Ladas, Beverly Whipple, and John D. Perry. So to get to the bottom of all this genital confusion, BuzzFeed Life spoke with one of the book's co-authors, Beverly Whipple, Ph.D., R.N.

Whipple explains that they were reporting on the area that was first described by Dr. Ernest Grafenberg, a German researcher and ob-gyn who wrote about it in a paper published in 1950. He talked about a sensitive area that you could feel through the front vaginal wall, which swells when stimulated and seemed to play a role in female ejaculation (which is not the same thing as squirting, FYI). In their book, they called this area the "G-spot," after Grafenberg.

The "House Of Cards" Showrunner Answers Every Burning You Have About Season 3
Date: Thu, 05 Mar 2015 15:32:09 -0500
From buzzfeed.com

Executive producer and showrunner Beau Willimon reveals the meaning behind this season's most talked-about moments. Warning: MAJOR SPOILERS for Season 3!

1. Why did Season 3 open with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) literally pissing on his father's grave?

1. Why did Season 3 open with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) literally pissing on his father's grave?

Netflix

Season 3, Episode 1: "Chapter 27"

"First of all, one of the big questions at the end of Season 2 was: Is Doug [Michael Kelly] alive? And for some viewers, not everyone had this reaction, but you see Frank arriving at a graveyard and the assumption is that he's visiting Doug's grave ... So it prolongs the suspense in a way for some viewers. And then we have the revelation that it's not Doug at all. We still don't know at that point if Doug's alive, but we know that at least this grave isn't his.

Second of all, legacy was going to be an important thing for Frank as he navigates his way through the presidency. And while we don't use the word 'legacy' there, he definitely touches upon a theme by saying, 'When they show up at my funeral, they'll have to wait in line, unlike your funeral, my failure of a father, where no one showed up but me.'

And also, it was some irreverent fun with Frank. I knew that this season was going to take a different tonal and stylistic approach, that we were really going to get into the emotional journey and drama of the characters, and right off the bat, I wanted to give people a little bit of comedy, a little bit of fun before we got into some pretty bleak story with Doug Stamper for the next 25 minutes. I knew that we weren't going to see Francis, except on TV, for 25 minutes, and I wanted to make sure they got a taste of Frank so they felt secure they were going to see him again in that episode, if not for a little while."

2. Was Doug always going to live?

2. Was Doug always going to live?

Netflix

Season 3, Episode 1: "Chapter 27"

"For a moment at the beginning of breaking Season 2, we flirted with him actually being dead. We were talking about Doug's arc for Season 2 and we knew that Rachel Posner [Rachel Brosnahan] was a problem. We were really interested in this bizarre relationship that formed between them, which is difficult to pin down: Is it more sexual? More fatherly? Is it about loneliness? Is it a mix of all three? But at the end of the day, she was a loose end -- and we know how the Underwoods, and Doug Stamper by association, deal with loose ends.

So naturally, the first place we went at the end of Season 2, as we began to break it, was that Doug had to kill Rachel. And when we have a strong dramatic idea like that, my first impulse is to say, 'What is the opposite of that idea? Is the opposite idea truly awful or is it actually even better?' The opposite of that was Rachel killed Doug. We didn't know how or why, but the moment I said that -- because it was sacrilegious to say that about a character we loved so much -- everyone's jaw dropped and we all went silent for a few seconds. It was such a provocative thought that I said, 'You know what that means, guys? She's gotta die. We've gotta do that. If it is affecting us this way, just talking about it, imagine seeing it on-screen?'

So we start talking about that for about half the day. Could we really do this? Could we live with ourselves? Is this right for the story? It's a provocative idea, but we didn't want to do it just for that fake. Then we realized that we could actually do both. We developed a story where it seemed like Doug was going to kill Rachel and then she turned the tables on him. It could seem like he might have been left for dead, but we could write it in such a way that he would actually be alive when we came into Season 3. When we finally arrived at that, we realized that was the best possible option because we got to do all of the above."
