I’m really gratified to share with you, my dearies, my latest article at MEL Magazine! For this piece, I spoke to Stephanie Berman, aka “Spermin’ Berman.” She’s taken an unexpected and super-interesting journey from trying to conceive with her wife to winning an AVN award for the world’s classiest ejaculating dildo. Along the way she’s learned volumes about the needs and desires of demographics she never expected, like mixed-status HIV couples, pegging enthusiasts, cis guys with disabilities, and particularly trans men.

A nibble:

“It allows female-to-male folks not only to have sex, but it gives them that realistic finish that so many people are looking for.’ It’s one thing to be able to have sex and re-create that experience, but to really feel like you’re finishing — there’s a realistic connection that you’re making to your body with your partner… I think that’s something that’s super unique for the [trans] community that’s been embraced a lot.”

I talked to Berman about the strange and rewarding trip, and to one of her biggest fans, Buck Angel, about her toy, the POP dildo, for MEL Magazine, and I came away smiling. This product is making a difference for a lot of people, and that makes me happy. Who knew a squirting dildo could be so inspiring?
