October flew by but no need to worry – we have everything you missed and more here! Take a quick trip down memory lane with us as we show off some sex positive moments on social and, of course, our top 3 pop culture moments from this month.
We spread the word about #UEqualsU…

DC, we need your help! In an effort to spread #UequalsU messaging, we have these beautiful posters up all over the city! However, we can't get to them all by ourselves. Snag a pic and tag @dcbeings to be featured on our IG! . . . . . . #dcbeings #sexpositive #uequalsu #hivprevention #hivtreatment #pozlife #livingwithhiv #livingsurvivors #livingsurvivor #hiv
A global campaign led by the Prevention Access Campaign to spread awareness about the fact that a person with an undetectable viral load can’t transmit HIV to their sexual partners. The more you know, right? Help us spread science instead of stigma, beautiful beings!
We reminded everyone of the importance of daily orgasms.
What’s that? Facts. Life is way too short to not celebrate with a daily dose of the big “O”.
Unfortunately, not every post was a celebration this month. As the news of trans and nonbinary erasure threats broke, so did our hearts.

However, we still have the opportunity to make our voices heard in the fight to affirm and protect our trans/nb friends and family. DC Beings will always support not just trans/nb sexual health, but their personhood.
Here are our 3 favorite pop culture moments of October:
1. If you haven’t watched original Netflix series, “Big Mouth” season 2 you should give it a try and here’s why: “So, yeah, the show about a sex-obsessed hormone monster with a bag of dildos and a tribunal about just how pervy a tween boy actually is, officially qualifies as feel-good TV in 2018.” Trust us when we say this sex-positive show is worth a look.
An interesting read and def an interesting show. We applaud a show that tackles the unnecessary shame of puberty, exploration and sexuality that can carry over into adulthood. https://t.co/X7nfJ14Itn

2. Anyone else a fan of Jada Pinkett’s Smith Red Table Talk? Season two aired this month and they leave it all on the table. We love how this show facilitates candid and open cross-generational conversations. In the most recent episode, Jada and Will speak openly about their relationship and a little about their sex life with their daughter Willow and Jada’s mom at the table. Check out the episode here.
3. Ok ok, so this technically happened in September, but we are still reeling with excitement about it in October! Slick Woods graced the runway while in labor. Woods revealed that some of her 14 hours of labor were spent strutting in Rihanna’s new Savage X Fenty FW18 lingerie line. Sex positivity means embracing your sexuality in any state of being if you so choose, pregnancy included. Congrats!
