It’s hard to believe that my blog 50ShadesofPink.ca has been running for nearly two years now! Lots has happened during this time including a name change and site redesign. But what remains the same is my desire to share information about taboo subjects so that women feel better about themselves and have appropriate information to guide them in vaginal and sexual health.

For those of you who are new readers (and for those who may have just missed a few articles) I wanted to showcase the top 5 most read articles for 2016!  As always, feel free to leave me a comment or write me an email if you have any sexual-health related questions – my door is always open.

I am looking forward to 2017 as I expand the blog even more to include information on love and on-line dating, relationships. pregnancy, feminism, parenting, friendship, fertility, extra-marital affairs, self-esteem, body image, nutrition and more. So stay tuned.

Of course the central theme will be women’s health and sexuality but I thought it would be nice to be more inclusive of the subjects that matter most to women especially given the world in which we live in today!

As we close out this year and ring in the new, here are the 5 most read articles for 2016! Enjoy!

She was in a new relationship and she and her new “Latin lover” were getting concerned as sex was becoming increasingly painful. How lucky was she to have found a Latin lover, but how unfortunate to be experiencing painful sex. Ouch! Life is not fair. Read the full article here:

2. Ménage à Tois

The Ménage à trois is a “Threesome” that may be two males and a female (M-F-M) or two females and a male (F-M-F). Threesomes are a very common erotic fantasy for men. I receive so many emails about them that I thought I would post this one from a listener with my opinion on the matter or shall I say matters? Read the full article here:

3. A Girl Just Wants to Have Sex

Laura was a forty-five-year-old recently divorced woman. She had not had sex with her ex for five years prior to the end of their marriage because her husband had low sexual desire. Anxious for an intimate relationship with prodigious libido, Laura found herself a new man. Read the full article here:

4. The Sadness of a Sexless Marriage

Ginny and Bill had not had sex since their second child was born 15 years prior. As Bill puts it, he groveled for about five years and then he gave up. He had no shame in telling me he sought solace for his sexual needs elsewhere. What Ginny did not know did not hurt her, he claimed. Read the full article here:
