  •'s Web site is something sensual to behold. This could be DearShrink's favorite sensuality site. Advertising themselves as a "Community of Thoughtful Hedonists," this magazine and Web site feature great writing. However, the emphasis in the photo galleries is still somewhat traditionally on the female form. In a sense,'s Web zine could be viewed as taking's Sex Page and making it into a standalone magazine.

  • is Seattle's very own sexuality site. The Society for Human Sexuality headquartered in Seattle, Washington, sponsors this site. The emphasis is on fun, diversity, education and interaction. It has something for everyone, but the focus is a bit more for single people and "alternative" styles. The links page is especially interesting.
