What Is LADYist?

(Illustration by Stephanie Kraft/LAist)

Are you a woman who wishes "the talk" had covered a few more things? LADYist is here to fill the gaps in your sex education. It's sex ed for grown women.

Our authors will update you on a monthly cycle:

  • Michelle Faust weighs in at the time we'll call ovulation (early in the month)
  • Lita Martinez drops more information during menstruation (two weeks later)

We're here to take the shame out of asking questions that no one has ever taken the time to explain to you. Do you want to know more about how your vagina works? Or about anything that comes out of it?

From breast health, to hormones, to your monthlies, to sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy, if it's related to female reproductive health, we're here to break it down. (We're also here to look at anything else important to women's health.)

There are 5.2 million girls and women in L.A. County alone. Each of us could use a little help staying healthy. So let's work together. Send us your questions. We'll be happy to investigate them.
