    Have you ever found something old and gross underneath the sofa cushions? Well ... imagine finding something old and gross in a much more delicate place. Surgeons recently found a 10-year-old sex toy in a woman's vagina. She's freakin' lucky to be alive.

    Whether you’re trying to lose weight, get strong, or just want to feel better, there’s one healthy habit most moms are missing. Even when you’re working out consistently and watching what you eat, skimping on sleep can derail all your good intentions.

    Yes, it's true. Sleep is the one thing all humans need to survive, and it can be the answer to lasting good health. Perhaps you remember it from your pre-kids days? It’s that activity that lasted beyond six in the morning on the weekend. 

    In case you need convincing that sleep should be a priority for you, here are four reasons sleep is so vital, as well as practical tips on getting more -- and better -- sleep.

    If you're a woman with a vagina, maybe you've checked out the lady between your legs before. Not that you'd ever TELL anyone that! But maybe you haven't. You aren't alone. In fact, there are some adult women on this planet who have never actually even seen their vaginas! Their reasons run the gamut. For some it hasn't been physically possible, some had bad experiences that left them scarred and wary. YouTube's own Davey Wavey set out to introduce some of these women to their vaginas.

    Davey put out a call on seeking women who'd never seen their own nethers. He interviewed them, gave them a hand mirror and some privacy, and videotaped the results. When this video started making the rounds, I have to say I was initially skeptical. Was this just an opportunity to take advantage of vulnerable women? What I saw was pretty surprising -- and very touching!

    Let's talk yoga. No, not like magazine cover yoga, real person yoga.

    I'm a chubby girl. I'm not a born yogi by nature, one of those slender ballerina types who is so graceful it's kind of disgusting. That said, I love the rush I get from exercise...allll exercise. Yes, 'exercise' here includes doing the nasty. Mind your chakras, y'all -- it's about to get sexy up in here!

    Yoga leads to better sex. It makes sense! Yoga is all about existing in the moment. It's about being limber and present in your body. In other words, doing yoga = daaaayyyyum girl, check that swirl! I want that! And if I've got to log a few extra sessions being wobbling and sweaty and insecure alongside some Natalie Portman-type clone in exchange for the best sex of my life, I am totally okay with that.

    No offense to the guys out there, but we women have always been on the losing side when it comes to being able to protect ourselves from both pregnancy AND HIV. The only birth control method we've been able to use up until now to prevent both is condoms. And, as wonderful as they are, it isn't always easy as a woman to feel confident that we can trust our partners when it comes to using condoms correctly. A new device has just been revealed that may put women in the driver's seat when it comes to taking full control and responsibility of our sexual health.

    The intravaginal ring is a 5.5-cm ring that is inserted into the vagina and contains both levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestin hormone, and tenofovir, an anti-retroviral drug. 'Til now, researchers have not been able to find a way to combine the two drugs. This innovation could spell big, positive changes for women everywhere.

    Sex sells. It's one of the things people are most interested in and most insecure about, so they're willing to shell out to have the kind of sex life they think they should be having. Sad. But that doesn't mean businesses aren't above trying to turn a quick buck by playing on our insecurities. Take all the folks out there trying to be the first to market a successful "female Viagra." The way they keep taking stabs at it, and there's a new pill getting press every few months, I'm convinced they believe it's the Holy Grail of drugs. Too bad it's an altogether flawed concept.

    But okay, let's give the latest shillers a listen.

    Forget Kegel exercises. "Sex coach" Kim Anami is taking the concept of "vagina strengthening" to a whole new (questionable) level with her at-home weekly course that costs just $500 and has something to do with learning "Vaginal Kung Fu."

    If your jaw hit the floor when you saw Prancercise, just wait 'til you see Anami's (NSFW) clip called "10 Reasons to Lift Weights With Your Vagina." She says vaginal weight lifting can make for stronger orgasms OR being the life of the party if you win a game of beer pong by throwing the ball with your vaginal muscles!

    Yes, for the record, Anami's completely serious, and yep, you might want to make sure the little ones are all tucked in before pressing play on her eyebrow-raising clip ...

    "Is Katie Couric the next Jenny McCarthy?" asks an accusatory headline on The question is one some are asking after the news anchor-turned-daytime talk show host ran a lead segment on her show, Katie, about the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine yesterday. Surprise, surprise -- Katie's critical look at the vax is being slammed.

    Katie had two mothers as her guests on the show: Emily Tarsell, a mother who says the death of her daughter, Christina, was caused by the HPV vaccine Gardasil in 2008, and a mother and daughter, Rosemary and Lauren Mathis, who believe Lauren developed a bizarre illness characterized by nausea and fatigue due to the vaccine. (Rosemary Mathis is now the director of the anti-HPV organization, SaneVax, Inc.) As you might imagine, these women have a serious bone to pick with the vaccine, and they're not alone.

    A French manufacturer of Norlevo, which is a morning-after pill distributed in Europe that is similar to Plan B, has just issued a warning that the emergency contraception is ineffective for women who weigh more than 176 pounds. In fact, the pill is shown to begin losing its effectiveness in women who weigh more 165 pounds.

    Given the fact that the average weight of an American woman is 166 pounds (at 5 feet 3 inches), this news is going to affect a whole lot of women on this side of the Atlantic. American contraception companies may want to take some notes from their European counterparts and provide warning labels pronto.

    Guess how half of unintended pregnancies happen in America? Derr, I mean, I guess we already know how ALL pregnancies happen. I mean, what's stopping couples from using the protection they need to avoid making babies when they have sex? Apparently a lot of perfectly fertile women believe they can't get pregnant -- for a whole variety of self-deluded, wishful-thinking, totally clueless, and gullible reasons. Spoiler alert: We're usually wrong.

    Half of our nation's unintended pregnancies happen to the 10 percent of us who aren't using protection. A survey of 50 women seeking abortions showed that women don't use birth control because they think they are at low risk for pregnancy. And okay, fine, that's a really small sample. But come on, how many of us have friends and family members who truly believed they were sperm-proof until proven otherwise? Hell, some of you may be sheepishly raising your hands as well. Here are a few ways magical thinking can get you knocked up.
