To Cum or Not to Cum
Q: Okay, so my male friend and I were having a conversation about a man's right to cum inside a woman's vagina when she's on The Pill.

Sex Education: Free Speech or Moral Decay?
Freedom. Liberty. Choice. Indeed, these are the words we richly cherish in today's age, and we are unrelenting in our pursuit of these ideals. Part of the reason is because we often juxtapose notions of non-freedom with obviously negative connotations. We denounce censorship as un-American and promote the freedom to explore our sexuality, because this philosophy allows each of us to be free from the oppressive forces of whoever we are fighting against nowadays.
