This week on Oh Joy, Sex Toy, my super awesome, talented, funny friend Lucy Knisley shares her experiences about having the Implant Birth Control! Possibly the only write-up on birth control that finds a way to mention the X-Files.
Hooray! Read all about my beloved little alien arm stick, in my guest comic for Erika’s webcomic. Oh little arm stick, you treat me so nice.
We’re with Lucy—the implant is totally awesome. If you’re interested and want to learn more about it, check out Lucy’s full comic with lots of useful details and read our Method Monday spotlight on the implant for even more info. Careful, though: This method can be super discreet, but you might just like it so much that you can’t keep your excitement to yourself.
LARC Awareness Week kicked off yesterday and we are SO ready to spread the good word about LARCs (long-acting reversible contraceptives) like the IUD and the implant this Method Monday. A few of the many reasons LARCs rock our world:
- They’re ready when you are. Anytime, any place.
- For folks struggling with stress or depression, they can mean one less thing to worry about.
- They can be discreet (or not—totally your call).
- They work really, really well.
- They’re getting more popular in the U.S.—and making some new users very happy.
- They might be less expensive than you think (even free!), especially if you have health insurance or qualify for Medicaid.
We could go on, but someone told us brevity is the soul of wit. If you love your LARC—or if you want to learn more about them—check out the #LoveMyLARC conversation on Twitter this week.
Guess what?! Dawgie Style has most of our shows archived and they will be available soon! Unfortunately, only about half of each show was saved, but here at Dawgie Style we believe that something is better than nothing ;-)
Are you as excited as we are?
The best scene in “He’s Just Not Into You”
"I am so jealous of the guy who gets to marry you."
"Well that could have been you, that’s what I was..leaning towards."
That’s why I had “It’s Called A Break-Up Cause It’s Broken” delivered to his house!
Friend of friend who makes hilarious comments and choices.
communication, cheating, and breaking up. A lot of the things we were discussing came from some books so here they are:
1) The Five Love Languages:
The Five Love Languages talks about how people have different ways of showing and feeling “love” so if love languages do not match then this may be the reason for issues in a relationship.
Uncoupling: Turning Points in Intimate Relationships
Is the sociological theory that every single break-up goes through the exact same steps no matter what the details or circumstances are.
3) It’s Called a Break Up Cause It’s Broken
Written by the same pair who wrote He’s Just Not That Into, this book explains healthy ways to get over a relationship and is also filled with stories to make you feel better and yummy healthy recipes.
4) Why We Broke Up
This book has also become a Tumblr project.
If you’re feeling like you need to vent about a break-up anonymously you can go to their blog and just yell it out:
We know that break-ups suck, but learn from everything that happened and take those lessons to the loving relationship that you deserve! We mean all of this in the least corny way possible.
Don’t forget to tune into tonight to Dawgie Style on Rainy Dawg Radio from 7-8 pm. We will be talking about break-ups: why they happen, how to handle them in a healthy manner, and how to move on.
We will also be discussing cheating and what actually counts as cheating and whether or not you believe in the idea of a “home-wrecker.”
