But is this enough for parents to get their sons circumcised?
Why circumcision lowers risk of HIV
Last night on “Late Night With LaTeefah and Sutle” they continued their month long lifestyle series with bisexuality. There were great insights from the guests and I also added my two cents. Check it out here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/icandiradio/2013/03/21/late-night-with-lateefah-dj-sutle
This issue is focused on children and families. There is tons of valuable advice and information on family related issues inside. I wrote an article this time about co-parenting. Check it out:
I got the chance to use the Diva Cup last week during my period. The Diva Cup is a reusable, silicone cup that is inserted into the vagina during periods. To me it’s the cleaner (and safer for the environment) alternative to pads and tampons. The Diva Cup comes in two sizes. There’s a size 1 for women under thirty or for women who has not had any children. Size 2 is for women over thirty or who has had children. I had to buy a size 2; I fall into both of those categories. If you decide to give the Diva Cup a try, please read the directions carefully. They tell you how to insert it and clean it after use.
Ok so after reading the directions, it took a few extra minutes to insert it. After I got it in, I didn’t feel it at all. It seems big and cumbersome, but it doesn’t feel that way at all once inserted. I decided to empty it every 4 hours (as per directions). It was easy to take out and empty. You just empty it into the toilet. There is a Diva Wash that can be purchased, but the store that I bought the Diva Cup from didn’t have any in stock so I bought a bottle of Summer’s Eve for sensitive skin and it worked just fine. On the first day of use, I decided to use an Always Radiant Infinity Pad (my favorites). The Diva Cup instructions say that it shouldn’t leak as long as it’s inserted properly. And they were so right! It did not leak at all. I just have a phobia of having accidents so the remaining days of my period, I used a Party In My Pants Pad, which is reusable (and is my new favorite). After use for the day or at the end of your period, just wash, dry and store in the handy little bag provided in the package.
In all, I give the Diva Cup 5 stars! It made my period much more tolerable. I didn’t worry as much about accidents. It is very comfortable to use. It’s easy to insert and remove. It gets easier to insert and remove the more you do it. The price isn’t so bad either. I bought mine for about $39.99. It’s good for a whole year (or longer, depending on frequency of use.) I spend more than that on pads and tampons through the year. I’ll be using the Diva Cup from now on. If you ladies out there are looking for an alternative to what you currently use for periods, I highly recommend giving the Diva Cup a try.
Safer for the environment
Easy to use (insert and removal)
Easy to clean and store
Cheap in terms of how much use you get out of it
Can be used throughout whole period
can use overnight
Comes in two sizes for maximum fit
Not for the faint of heart (If you don’t want to see details of what comes out of you)
I worry about sanitation while using on the go (at work or out shopping)
Can leak if not inserted properly (can be prevented!)

FYI: I bought both products locally in Cincinnati, Ohio at Park +Vine
P.S. Did I tell you the Diva Cup came with a cute little pin?

I wrote about sexual hygiene around this time last year. Ms. LaTeefah and DJ Sutle, from iCandi Radio’s Late Night with LaTeefah and Sutle Show, took it to another level! They covered basic hygiene as well as grooming before sex and issues such as bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections and hygeine horror stories. Take a listen here:

I am now a co host on a show called “The Beauty Shop” on blog talk radio. The show is in a two hour block (The Candi Bar) where in the beauty shop the women talk about various topics and the second hour, “The Barber Shop”, the men talk about some of the things we talk about, as well as their own topics. On January 15, 2013 we aired a show where we talked about single life and masturbation. We talked about all the things we encountered being single, down to our various choices for sex. In this particular episode, I ran down my top 5 sex toy picks for women and my top 5 for men. Listen to the show at the link below and tell us what you think!

Ever wanted to visit a website that had all the information you need on birth control, plus reviews from other women and men? Look no Further, there is such a site! A group of awesome folks from The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, came up with a site called Bedsider.org, an online birth control support network. On this site you can research all birth control methods, compare them, read other people’s opinion on them, set up reminders, find a local health care provider, and more! There’s even a toll free number, if you need to speak to some about your birth control options. I’ve cruised the site and I am pleased with what I see. I love their motto, ” We believe knowledge is power. We believe babies are best when you’re ready. We believe in you.” Need I say more? Check out the site and let us know what you think.
