Today, for the very first time, we're thrilled to welcome you to HuffPost Queer Voices.
Our name change comes four-and-a-half years after we originally debuted as HuffPost Gay Voices -- and after countless conversations with countless people, both inside and outside of the HuffPost newsroom.
Cuando se trata de sexo lésbico, muchas personas se preguntan qué pasa debajo de las sábanas (o encima de la mesa de la cocina o en los asientos traseros de un coche).
Como en el resto de relaciones sexuales, no hay algo así como una respuesta universal para todo en...
While sexual orientations beyond heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality are beginning to receive more attention and understanding from mainstream culture and the media, asexuality remains fairly misunderstood.
The Asexual Visibility And Education Network (AVEN) defines an asexual as "someone who does not experience sexual attraction"...

YouTube stars Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers -- aka BriaAndChrissy -- are back in a big way.
The duo behind "Lesbians Touch A Penis For The First Time" have released their latest video, entitled "Gay Men Touch Vagina For The First Time." The self-described "singing duo/lesbian couple" found several self-identified gay men to participate in an intimate experience with Stevie Boebi, "a woman who happens to have a vagina."
Due to the controversial nature of -- and some responses to -- "Lesbians Touch A Penis For The First Time," BriaAndChrissy emphasized to The Huffington Post in an email that this new clip deals with important issues of consent, safety, anatomy and more.
While "Gay Men Touch Vagina For The First Time" starts out with what could be labeled as stereotypical -- and some might argue offensive -- reactions from some of the men involved, by the end it seems that all of the participants learned something -- and there appears to be more learning ahead. "I am so so so honored to be a part of this video," Boebi writes in the clip's comments section on YouTube. "I've received so many questions so I'm going to make a Q&A video answering them."
We had some of our own questions for BriaAndChrissy, so we chatted with them about the video, what they wanted viewers to take away from it, their response to the controversy over "Lesbians Touch A Penis For The First Time" and more.
The Huffington Post: Why did we want to make this video?
BriaAndChrissy: Making this video has been something we have wanted to do for a while. We wanted to bring awareness to how little we know we as a people know about our own bodies. Sexual taboo has made pornography one of the only ways to learn about anatomy and sexuality and that is not a place to learn those things. Simple things like our bodies should not be so mysterious and off limits, nor should they just be sexualized.
What do you say to men (or women) -- gay or not -- who say that vulvas and/or vaginas are "gross" or "disgusting"?
We would say, 'why?' Is it because they are afraid or they have a misconception about vaginas? Genitalia is not something to be afraid of or grossed out by, nor should it be glossed over or hidden in education. As the video shows, the gay men in the video haven't seen a vagina and while they might of been grossed out before, upon seeing it, they see that it's just a body part, one that gives life and doesn't have to be sexualized. Two of them come to the realization that it was beautiful. Every body part is different and should be celebrated, not feared. That was one of our favorite takeaways from this video.
The video is humorous but has some important topics embedded within it too, including conversations around consent, safety, who has a vulva/vagina and more. Talk a bit about those topics and tell us what you ideally want viewers to take away from this video.
Culturally, vaginas have been oversexualized, objectified and exploited, often without regard to the women possessing them. We thought it was important to show that a video could be made without any of those things happening and one where the consent was clear and message was educational and thought-provoking. The men used in this video are respectful and kind, asking permission before touching and making sure Stevie is always comfortable and in control of the situation. This conversation of consent needs to be talked about. We live in a culture where consent is abused, for some it's considered optional when it should always be mandatory. The video also addresses that not all women have a vagina just as not all men have a penis. This was a point we wanted to make and one we felt was important for the trans community.
A previous video you made,"Lesbians Touch A Penis For The First Time," went viral, but not without some controversy. Some claimed that the video was transphobic, since some lesbians have penises and have touched penises before and they claimed that your video implied that all lesbians haven't -- and wouldn't want to -- touch a penis. What's your response to that?
This video highlighted three individual experiences of women who had never touched a penis or even been that close to one. Their reactions are genuine and in the moment and all their own. Our video was about lesbians who have never touched a penis before, not about lesbians who have touched a penis before or lesbians who have a penis. We weren't implying that all lesbians wouldn't want to touch a penis or ignoring that some lesbians have penises, we were simply highlighting three women's individual experiences touching a penis for the first time, that's it. The video shows how much stock we do put in genitalia as a culture in relation to gender, and honestly we're glad that issue is raised. We should have an understanding, safe and open dialogue about our own bodies and it is through videos like this that those discussions can take place.

Despite more and more people becoming aware of the expansive variety of sexual orientations out there, asexuality remains widely unknown and unexplored in popular culture.
Το τελευταίο πράγμα που οι περισσότερες λεσβίες περιμένουν ότι θα βρεθεί ποτέ στα χέρια τους κάποια στιγμή, είναι ένα πέος. Αλλά αυτό ακριβώς συνέβη στο παραπάνω -αστείο- βίντεο.
Μετά τις ομοφυλόφιλες γυναίκες που φιλούν άνδρες για πρώτη φορά, το πείραμα πάει λίγο πιο... κάτω.
La dernière chose que les lesbiennes s'attendent a avoir entre leurs mains, c'est un pénis. Et c'est justement le sujet de cette nouvelle vidéo aussi drôle que révélatrice.

The last thing most lesbians expect to find in their hands on any given day is a penis. But that's exactly what happened in this funny and eye-opening new video.
Self-described singing duo / lesbian couple Bria & Chrissy got together a few of their friends to see what happens when women-loving-women get a chance to do something they maybe never thought they'd do (or want to do).
Needless to say, there was definitely some anxiety in the air.
“I’ve done public speaking and I hate public speaking… [I've] nearly gotten hit by a car… and this is definitely the most nervous I’ve ever been,” one woman explained before grasping the token penis.
Another woman revealed, "I feel like I've gone my whole life trying to avoid this moment."
YouTube star Arielle Scarcella, who participated in the video, told The Huffington Post, "I wanted to do it to prove to the world that all bodies are beautiful and you don't need to be attracted to each / specific ones but can still appreciate them."
