GUYS — #CBD LUBE IS A THING AND THIS COULD BE THE BEST NEWS EVER FOR SOMEONE WITH ENDO or ANYONE WITH PAINFUL SEX ❕❕❕❕❕ @medamour1 & I are SO FKING EXCITED to partner in 2019 to bring you allllllll the sexual wellness things. As someone with #endometriosis, I know how hard it is to have #painfulsex and it made me want to 1. Be a nun 2. Become a born again Christian? 3. Hide in a hole 🕳 like, before my OG Endometriosis surgery (before I knew what endo even was), I cried wearing tampons. Even light ones. So imagine sex — yeah, the worst. It made me barf (literally). Have cramps for a WEEK. Live off Motrin and Aleve and Zofran. Have ruptured cysts. And feel like a freaking insecure mess. Hi, I’m Shelley, I have a 5-year-old-wingman and oh, PS your 🍆 will probs kill me 🔪 so don’t touch me 🤣 what.a.catch. (I’m fully aware I can absolutely always say NO). 🤣 PAINFUL SEX IS NOT NORMAL. Let me say it again for those in the nose bleeds...PAINFUL SEX IS NOT NORMAL. TALK TO YOUR OBGYN. Use products that can help 🙌🏽 Don’t be afraid, shy, or weird about wanting to be “normal.” Endo has many signs and symptoms, and painful sex is just one of them. I’ll be sharing things that Lily of @medamour1 recommends over at @speakupspeakendo, but use code “saltysweetseasons” to shop @medamour1’s site for $10 off $50+ purchases and get free shipping on orders $75+. I’ll put the link in my bio 😘. PS this is not an ad for this #lube, I just had to share since this is genius and a lifesaver for my #endo warriors or those suffering from other chronic conditions that cause sex to suck because it hurts so bad — we got you 🙌🏽 #cbdlube#sexualwellness PPS — for those who feel weird talking about sex, trust me, I GET IT. Ask my boyfriend how awkward I am 🤣🤣🤣 but, like, we all know where babies come from, and I’m not turning into a sex shop, I just want to share my fav products that can help a sista (and maybe her gine from time to time) out 💕

Welcome to Zarya's Bedroom! ZB first started as a discussion among friends about sexuality, wellness and well...the taboo topics that hardly get discussed!
The result was a huge weight off everyone's shoulders and a judgement-free open dialogue that continues to promote awareness, debunk myths and support overall sexual health.
I'm opening up this discussion now on social media to serve and support others in our community. 💃🏾
p.s. let me know what you think of the colors/branding/etc!
p.p.s. OH YEA! Why call this Zarya's bedroom? ❤️
Well I remember growing up, all the men would gather in the living room and all the women would congregate in a bedroom, shut the door and chat about all things that really wouldn't be discussed around males. The feeling was free-spirited, weightless, fun and uplifting. I hope to create the same feeling in this forum.
Here we go! With much ❤️ + gratitude, Zarya.
Endo is kind of like a black hole or the Under World in Stranger Things, and one thing we all have in common is that sex can really hurt. Like really fking bad — before, during, and even, after. Like before my OG endo surgery (before I knew what #endometriosis even was), I could barley even shove a tampon up there, let alone a 🍆 I HATED SEX. IT HURT SOOO BAD. I felt like I had the flu afterward; immediately afterward. I’d even get a fever 🤒 body aches, cramps, and nausea so bad I thought I could die. I lived off 2638 Motrin and Zofran, and the thought of sex made me want to become a born again Christian or a nun just so I could have an excuse 😹 Okay, but seriously - endo can cause painful sex. And there are some things that can help, like this little gem sold by my girl, Lily, at @medamour1 — YOU. GUYS. You can set the level of penetration with this thing 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 Endo SUCKS, but your sex life doesn’t have to and your vag doesn’t have to collect dust. I’m SO EXCITED to announce that I’m partnering with @medamour1 to get you babes discounts on her products | use code “speakupspeakendo” for $10 off a purchase of $50+ & free shipping on orders over $75. I’ll put the direct link in my bio for you 😽

You’ve tested positive for an STI. Now what?
Once you’ve gotten the results from a health care provider you will have a discussion with them about what your next step is.
Many STI’s are treated and cleared up with a course of prescription medications, however some are viral and require ongoing management and possibly continued involvement with a clinician.
Be open with your health care provider as to how you’re feeling about your positive result. There can be many mixed emotions when learning you have tested positive for an STI, but know that you’re not alone. Commend yourself for getting tested in the first place. That was a healthy step, well done!
If you have have friends you can talk to it may be helpful to confide in them. You have nothing to be ashamed of.
Sexual health is just another part of overall health. You wouldn’t be embarrassed if you caught a cold or flu, would you?
While there is a wide variety of birth control options available in the market, you should bear in mind that there are pros and cons for every one of them.We've rounded up the good, bad and ugly of birth control options in our article and follow our page for more content like this!
Black history and presence in this country dates long before slavery, but the traumatic effects of slavery can not be ignored or denied. I'm on a mission to uncover how the generational trauma of Black women and families has and still impacts maternal and infant health outcomes. Here are a few new texts I'm adding to my research collection. I'm looking forward to a lifetime of healing work.

HAVE YOU MET THE IMPLANT? It’s a rod (the size of a match, pictured) that is inserted under the skin of your upper arm to prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years! It’s one of the most effective forms of birth control and you don't have to remember to take it everyday 👏🏾 Hit the link in bio to learn more about the implant.
So grateful NY passed the Reproductive Health Act today to ensure and expand abortion access in our state!
🚨 ATTN: Today is the 46th anniversary of #RoeVWade, and yet there are still SOOO many misconceptions and roadblocks that can't be ignored in the conversations around #abortion. 💯
Between laws designed to curb access to clinics and the rise of crisis pregnancy centers, there are more restrictions and misinformation than ever. Refinery made a guide to help you navigate the mess of regulations so you can get the help you need. 👏Double tap the link in their to check it out.
Abortion is healthcare and a right. It’s also supported by the majority of Americans, and something that many, many people will experience. You know and love someone who has had an abortion. Today marks 46 years of #RoeVWade, the Supreme Court case that protected abortion access across the United States 💕
However, it remains terribly inaccessible - did you know that it’s illegal to use federal funds for abortions? That makes it really inaccessible to folks with federal Medicaid (and in most states). Seven states also only have one abortion clinic, and many more have far too few 🚫
You can support access to safe legal abortion by googling your state + “abortion fund” and donating your time or money. You can also see if any of the health centers near you need volunteer escorts! 👍🏼

Twins! 👯♀️ How the heck did that happen!? There are 2 kinds of twins: Fraternal twins happen when two separate eggs are fertilized by two different sperm. Identical twins happen when one fertilized egg splits into two. Identical twins look almost exactly alike, and share the same genes! 🤯
Lets talk pubic hair!
A photo I posted about a week ago made the creeps go mad talking about me having a shaven "pussy"
Well....I don't! And stop being creepy!
Personally I don't completely shave my pubic hair for a few reasons. • The first reason being the most important. I keep my hair down their because I want to! Its my body hair and no one has the right to tell me what to do with it. • Pubic hair grows naturally.
• Hair grows done there for a reason. It works much like your eyebrows and eyelashes. By keeping dirt and sweat from getting in your genitals. • It is actually more hygienic to have pubic hair. It again acts like a protective shield and cab stop STI's from spreading as easily (Please still use condoms)
• The cuts and rashes caused my removing hair leaves your skin open to infections. • Finally the hair acts as a cushion for your pelvic bones when having sex!

It's that time of year again. Everyone's making resolutions - predictably to do with their weight and 'getting in shape'...🙄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But before you go ahead and pledge to join a gym or eat fewer calories this year, I want you to ask yourself something...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if being happy, fulfilled and sexy had nothing to do with your appearance? What if it actually meant letting go of trying to look the way society considers aesthetically pleasing, and instead was focused on being FREE? FREE from shame and self criticism. FREE from trying to hide the fact your tummy is soft , or your breasts sag, or your body doesn't look the way bodies do in magazines and social media. FREE from turning the lights off to undress, and restricting sex to positions that hide the fact you're a human being with flaws and fat folds and lines.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What would that mean for your sex life, and your quality of life in general? What would it mean for your self-confidence; if you just let go and allowed yourself to be FREE: to accept yourself, JUST AS YOU ARE, in 2019? 💕

Happy hump day boys and girls 🍑
Today’s message is to all the ladies on here. If you’ve seen my story today you’ll have seen how I’ve been shocked to only just find out that I don’t have to take my 7day pill break. I take a combined oral contraceptive, the one where you take a pill everyday for 21days then have a 7 day break before restarting on a new pack.
However, today I was informed that it’s actually now advised to take it back to back. This wasn’t my GP who told me either. Research by Professor Guillebaud (emeritus professor of family planning and reproductive health) said taking the combined oral contraceptives every day without breaks was the '21st century way to take the pill’. He argued that this should become the main recommended way for women to take oral contraceptives, and the usual 21/7 regimen for the pill was ‘outdated’ and should be consigned ‘to history’.
Like wow. Just wow. This is revolutionary for us who are sick of a pretend breakthrough bleed. But it got me wondering why I haven’t been told this? Why hasn’t my GP advised that this is the way forward now? But yeah, I had to share this with you because you can now take your pill back to back And it’s completely safe to do so. The suggested way is doing it for the full 365 days or if preferred 4 months and having a 4 day break. I hope this was helpful to some of you. I’ve linked the full article in my story for you all. Also men if you read this congratulations and be thankful you don’t ‘yet’ have to take contraception.
🍆 Soft c0ck myths 🍆
The number one myth of a soft c0ck is that we are not feeling desire. This is far from true. There are many reasons why a man may have a flaccid pen!s before or during s*xual activity that have nothing to do with his desire. Do not take it as an indication of a man's lack of desire. It's sad that in our society we have been trained to believe that the sign of desire in a man is erecti0n.
Soft c0cks can feel pleasure. Many people ignore the soft c0ck. If a man can't get it up, he can't be s*xual. Again, not true. The issue is that we have taught men that they are broken if they cannot get an erecti0n. We feel shamed, and we withdraw. Men can experience pleasure, desire and 0rgasm with a soft pen!s.
When it comes to s*x, men are expected to be "penetrative" - and not "receptive." He is the one who enters. During intercourse, the pen!s may soften and - along with that (if it is allowed and not shamed) - a man's heart may soften too. He may become more vulnerable with his lover and more open. As a result, the emphasis may shift to a feeling that is perhaps more subtle and intimate. If allowed, it's possible for s*xual energy to spread throughout the man's body, and a feeling of connectedness may occur when he stops focusing on penetration and simply floats in feeling and in uniting with his lover's body.
There is a lot of talk about women connecting their hearts to their vag!nas. What if men got to connect their c0cks to their hearts too?

Curiosity did not kill the cat.
At one point in our life or another, we can probably relate to this image in some way.
⠀⠀ Maybe it was when you learned about deodorant in 5th grade & were trying to figure out what to do w/those huge pads in the sample bag bc that surely wasn’t covered in the talk. Or maybe it was when you actually got your period for the first time and realized there was, surprisingly, more down there than a pee hole. Maybe this is you trying to find out where that menstrual cup went (JK) (kinda)...Maybe it was when your friends started talking about what they were doing with their boyfriends & wondered if you had what they had. Maybe it was after the first time you had sex & it didn’t go down like you thought it would & wanted to see if you could figure out what was wrong w/you (nothing). Maybe this was you 5 days after having a baby. Maybe you can relate bc you’ve experienced trauma. Maybe this image depicts how you’ve felt your entire life & you're not sure why. The reasons are infinite. ⠀⠀
There is so much emotion tied to this sacred part of our body. So I get it. I understand the hesitancy to explore & embrace, the pressure of perfection and performance, and the fear of the unknown. If that deep rooted emotion we harness here carries any negativity, it can become a barrier to healing, growth, maturity, confidence, relationships. It can affect our daily lives. ⠀⠀
I know this bc I see & hear this all the time from people who reach out to me, clients that I see, my friends, family. I know this bc I can relate. ⠀⠀
Here’s what I want you to hear: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. If any of this resonates w/you in any way, I encourage you to explore the reason(s) you feel this way. Getting to the bottom of the emotional barricade is step ☝🏻. And if you are overwhelmed & unable to process these feelings & barriers, talk to a psychologist/sex therapist, the Lord, a supportive friend or family member, or me (I will help you find resources). ⠀⠀
As pelvic health physical therapist-y as this may sound, having a healthy relationship w/your vagina will open up an even healthier & happier life. I have proof. ♥️
