Hot New BJ Tip!

A popular online news aggregator and blog recently asked for my sex educator expertise for a piece tentatively titled “Things They Teach You At Blow Job School.” I sent them three tips from my class BJs with AJ: A Fellatio Workshop (and will post the link here when I get it). I also wrote an alternative/extra tip just for readers of my blog!

Tip #1: Before even thinking about sucking that cock, first find out if it is connected to someone who doesn’t deserve good head. Ask them “Who did you vote for in the election?” Why?” Also ask them how they feel about punching nazis. If their answers aren’t good enough, forget the BJ and treat yourself to one of those real fruit popsicles instead. Then have the hottest masturbation sesh ever. Maybe watch super gay porn while masturbating. I personally find it helps.

If you use this sexy new tip, please let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear all about it! 😉

Amory Jane on Mary Jane: Cannabis & My Body

After a year of research entitled “Amory Jane on Mary Jane: Cannabis & My Body” I have found that cannabis has helped me with/relieved:
-Nausea
-Muscular pain (still chronic, but helps me manage the pain and also relax enough for healing to take place)
-Spasms
-Anxiety (although some strains can make it worse in certain situations).
-Menstrual Cramps (seriously the best remedy I’ve ever found)
-TMJ/TMD
-Depression (still dealing with it as regularly as ever, but Sky cannabis oil can help me get through really dark times and spiraling moments without letting them destroy me for weeks on end)
-Sex: body image, less pain in hips and other frequently achey spots, feeling more connected to my body, giving oral sex is extra fun while high, libido boost, cool different orgasms.

It has not helped with:
-Being a long-term “cure” for depression
-Fertility
-Short-term memory
-Self-Discipline
-Sinus problems

My most frequent and favorite way of consuming cannabis is through ingesting cannabis oil (a couple drops under the tongue, then swallow, then wait a while for it to kick in). My #1 recommended products are from Luminous Botanicals (and I promise they’re not paying me to say that! I just think their stuff is incredible). I like edibles/tonics/tinctures because I have asthma and smoking is not great for my lungs. However, sometimes I want to sit around and share a bong with friends, so I do smoke occasionally. I also have an herb vaporizer pen for getting high (or just relaxing with some CBD weed) on the go. It’s nice to have options and I am grateful that I live in a state with legal cannabis, especially since I don’t have health insurance.

Not everyone reacts the same way, but after a year of journaling, those are my own personal (summarized) findings. Feel free to share yours as well, and for more info on sex and cannabis, check out Episode 4 of my podcast, of Sex on the Brain with Amory Jane!

Sex on the Brain Episode 7: Sex & Depression

This week’s guest – JoEllen Notte (The Redhead Bedhead) – describes sex and depression as “the intersection of two taboo topics.” Good thing Amory Jane and Intern Courtney have no problems discussing taboos! Instead, they open up and share firsthand accounts of living with mental illness and how kink and sex toys have helped them retain their sex lives during depressive episodes. On the second half of the show, JoEllen Notte dives into her research on depression and how mental illness and medication can impact our sex lives and our relationships. She also debunks depression myths, offers important advice for partners of people living with depression, and emphasizes how none of us are broken.

Sex on the Brain Episode 6: Polyamory

Our sixth episode is on the topic of polyamory – the practice of having more than one romantic relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. This episode features candid and personal conversations between Amory Jane and her guests (Kevin Patterson of Poly Role Models and educator Annamarie Stockwell), from one polyamorous person to another. They talk about the real pros and cons of ethical non-monogamy, the heartbreaks, and how others have reacted to their non-traditional relationship styles. They also talk about intersectionality in polyamory (and about how intersectional feminism is often lacking in the media and polyamory communities in general).

Thank you

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I thought I had made a really stupid choice to leave a great position at a great company (where I made a living wage) to follow my passions and become a (mega poor) full-time Sex Educator Extraordinaire. Lately my risks have seemed a little more like they are paying off though. I’m getting booked all over the place, selling out classes and shows, getting thousands of downloads on the podcast, and finally feeling more like a part of the community.

With the depression and anxiety I felt after the election, I almost gave up on my dream. I didn’t have to energy to actually do it, but I thought about looking for a “regular person job.” Then, and I don’t know exactly what happened or how, a couple days ago I broke open and a lot of grief rushed out. Then energy to move forward and kick some ass settled in. It’s like I got a giant slap in the face, but I am not complaining.

Anyway, thank to all of you supportive wonderful people who encouraged me to keep going. I’m not very good at being my own cheerleader, but your combined forces showed so much belief in me that maybe I finally started believing it too.

xoxo,

Amory Jane
