I think it’s weird that teenage girls know more about giving blowjobs than they do about masturbation. It makes me sick to my stomach that so many young girls think sex is just about a guy finishing.
What if Netflix doubled as a dating service like “here are 7 other singles that watched Orange Is The New Black for 8 hours straight in your area”
Vancouver: Never before have I been in a city that was as able and eager to strike up a conversation.
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.

guys be like “makeup is why you take a bitch swimming on the first date!!!” but sweetie I got that urban decay setting spray ayeeee
OITNB does so many little things right.
Here’s a show that understands physical contact - sexual, sure, but every other kind, too - is so fucking important to us. These women have nothing else. Behind bars they have their guard up. They’re stripped of everything. If they try to caress their loved ones during visiting hours a guard will bark NO TOUCHING.
But they continually give into this basic need to be touched by those around them, and they also give their touch as one of the only gifts they can give. Touch is used to control, to love, to comfort, to express what they couldn’t. It’s used by everyone, even those from cultures and backgrounds who outside of bars are generally societally prevented from touching others (especially same-gendered others, and especially opposite-gendered others in non-sexual ways).
Piper has gradually gotten much more comfortable with touching. Vee used it to manipulate, in overt and subtle ways. Red and Gloria try to act as if they’re stern matriarchs, but they break down and touch ‘their girls’ many times.
It’s not just one of the best shows for women on TV. It’s one of the best shows for basic humanity.
a dude bein into feminism and consent and being respectful and a decent person aren’t charming lil perks to be giddy about
like those are simply requirements do not get wet over their ability to be decent
don’t even accept anything else like that’s the minimum requirement and work your way up from there otherwise you’re just working w/ garbage
