It was almost 15 years ago when I was stopped by a 70-year-old woman who changed the way I looked at the pelvic floor. At the time, I just had my first born and she was strapped to me while I was out on a walk. All of the sudden, this woman who I didn’t know came up and started…

It’s really common for women to experience incontinence (peeing your pants) after they’ve had a baby, YEARS after they’ve had a baby, or even if they’ve NEVER had a baby. So, let’s talk about…
This crunchy snack is an American success story. On a mild morning in November 1979, when a group of students clambered over the walls of the American Embassy in Tehran, I, the modest pistachio, might have been the furthest thing from everyone’s mind. As that day turned into an infamous hostage crisis, few were likely […]

During the holiday season, it seems like conversations about weight, body image, and food happen more than ever. You have your cousin talking about her latest diet or your brother commenting on how much quarantine weight he’s gained. In the past, I’ve been at family gatherings where all conversations revolve around diet talk. It gets […]
Let’s face it, growing up most of us had to answer our sex questions by scouring the internet or relying on older siblings’ and peers’ sometimes questionable expertise. If you were lucky enough to have parents that gave you the “sex talk”, it was probably laced with awkwardness and a needing to tune out what […]
A magic, wild, meaty treat. I am not an animal, a plant, or a mineral. Take a minute to get your head around what a crafty 20 Questions choice that makes me, infuriating little brothers and sisters on car rides everywhere. “What is it?” they shout, to which their torturer finally answers: I, mushroom, am […]
How do you do, fellow kids? Actor and “certified young person” Paul Rudd thinks it would be totally beast if you and your dank squad could wear a mask. The ageless (51-year-old) “Ant-Man” star pretended to be 26 in a PSA for young people that was so intentionally cringeworthy it was actually kinda great. He […]
Almonds are the healthy nut (only not). If you’ve never seen a harvest machine shake my tree, sending almond fruits spraying into the sky like an explosion of glinting confetti, I recommend googling it for a small thrill. Then, next time you encounter a farmer who calls his wares “ammonds,” you’ll understand the joke when […]
In the post #metoo movement, consent is a hot button when it comes to how we relate to each other intimately. The tricky thing is, consent is loaded with a whole lot of emotion, and not much clarity. For women, almost all of us have stories around a time when consent was questionable, or not […]
Tips for turning an uncomfortable conversation about race into an opportunity for growth. The ironic thing about being in an interracial relationship is how rarely race comes up. When my partner and I fell in love, I wasn’t falling in love with a white man, and he wasn’t falling in love with a Black woman. […]
Sweet smooches. Precious pecks. Mischievous makeouts. Naughty nuzzles. That’s right – we’re talking about kissing. When you think about it rationally, kissing is weird. I’m going to take my mouth and press it against yours. Then we might move our mouths around, even getting some tongue action involved. If you’re an alien coming to Earth, […]
