You might want sex to get dirty, but you don’t want it to get, like, actually unclean. Or maybe you do — even still, you should know how to get out whatever stain may occur. Which is why Sex Lives called in the cleanest person on the internet, columnist Jolie Kerr of Ask a Clean Person.

She’s answered all of our questions: How often should you clean that sex toy? (Every. Single. Time.) Can you ask a woman to take her makeup off before sex? (No.) How do you launder semen stains? How do you clean up fluids if you only have ten minutes to hide the evidence? And so much more. With Allison P. Davis, Maureen O’Connor, and David Wallace-Wells.
