5 Gründe, warum deine Frau keinen Sex mit dir hat

(9) Comments | Posted August 8, 2015 | 8:41 AM

In meinem letzten Beitrag habe ich Frauen geschrieben: Wenn ihr wollt, dass euer Mann sich wie ein Mann verhält, solltet ihr ihn auch wie einen behandeln. Das klingt simpel.

Doch wir leben heute in einer Gesellschaft, in der die Geschlechterrollen sich weiterentwickeln, ändern und ausdehnen. In vielfacher...

3 Things 'The Mindy Project' Taught Me

(11) Comments | Posted May 11, 2015 | 5:00 PM

By now we've all been accosted by the news that Fox -- the brilliant organization behind such gems as Bones! and The Swan! (note my sarcasm) -- has canceled The Mindy Project.

Let's all take a moment to sob. And sob some more. Now hiccup cry. Now breathe deeply....

Let's Stop Sharing Photos of Our Kids' Crying, Snot-Nosed Meltdowns

Listen, we've all been there.

The house is somehow a disaster even though the kids have only been up for an hour. You can't seem to find your grip on life, let alone the dishes, and your 2-year-old just threw himself to the floor in tears because the mayonnaise on...

Fünf Dinge die ich lernte, als ich meiner Tochter einen ganzen Tag lang jeden Wunsch erfüllte

(1) Comments | Posted March 21, 2015 | 12:34 PM

Meine sechsjährige Tochter kam von ihren Großeltern nach Hause und hatte dieses „Ich habe eine tolle Idee!"-Funkeln in ihren Augen.

„Mama, ich habe eine Disney-Sendung geschaut, und da waren Kinder, die einen Ja-Tag haben wollten. Das ist ein Tag, an dem die Eltern zu allem ja sagen, worum ihre Kinder...

My 6-year-old came home from her grandma's house last week with that particular "I've got a great idea" shine in her eyes.

"Hey, Mom! I was watching Disney Junior and there were these kids talking about having a Yes Day! That's a day when the parents say, 'Yes!' to...

The Moment I Knew My Low Sex Drive Was Affecting My Relationship

(10) Comments | Posted March 16, 2015 | 12:00 AM

In high school, I remember thinking sex, and really everything about female sexuality, should be easy. Surely, if you were a well-adjusted woman, with a sense of self-awareness and self-worth, you'd be able to seek and give fulfillment in the realm of physical intimacy. I knew there were books about...

Disney's 'Beauty and The Beast' Is the Same Story as 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' (Don't Take Your 5-Year-Old.)

Listen, I don't really know how to use the word "ironic." I feel like every time I employ it, someone much wiser than me explains that what I am describing is really just coincidental, curious, or paradoxical.

So I'm not going to say I thought it was ironic when I...

5 raisons de faire l'amour avec votre mari tous les soirs

(9) Comments | Posted December 17, 2014 | 9:41 AM

Je me faisais faire les ongles lorsque j'ai appris que ce n'étaient pas toutes les femmes qui voulaient, vous savez, se rouler dans le foin avec leur mari. J'avais 16 ans et j'avais choisi un vernis orange (ah, l'adolescence). J'avais apporté un livre, mais ça n'a pas été long avant...

A Week of No Time-Outs

My oldest daughter is the kind of kid that is interested in color theory, other people's emotions and the point of our existence. She'll sit in front of a sheet of math problems while happily tapping her toes through each formulation. She is so much fun and so much depth....

If You'd Use an Ebola Vaccine, You're a Vaxxer (So Get Those Shots)

Viewed from a late night and a laptop, much of the world's history looks like a quaint diorama with dark edges. A time when people were burned for witchcraft, the forests were full of fairies and there were monsters at the edge of a flat world. We think that humanity...

Dating Tip #1: Be Selfish

(0) Comments | Posted October 9, 2014 | 8:05 AM

I was talking to a good friend the other day about the pitfalls of dating.

There was a boy. He wasn't that nice and he wasn't that mean. He talked like he cared and acted like he didn't. When she walked into a room he would make his way to...

The Invisible Woman

I've been listening to sports radio all day.

I tuned in as soon as I woke up this morning and saw the video of Ray Rice knocking his fiancée, Janay, senseless bouncing around my TV. She's small, he's big. She's angry, he's angrier. He hits closed fist into her face...

Eu estava na manicure quando ouvi falar pela primeira vez que nem todas as esposas querem... hum... rolar no feno todas as noites com seus maridos. Eu tinha 16 anos e havia escolhido esmalte laranja. Levava um livro comigo, mas logo descobri outra fonte de entretenimento. Entre pinceladas e polimentos,...

Me estaba haciendo la manicura la primera vez que descubrí que no todas las esposas querían darse un, ejemmm, revolcón por el heno con sus maridos. Tenía 16 y había elegido pintura de uñas naranja (dieciséis...¡quién los tuviera!). Llevaba un libro encima, pero no pasó mucho tiempo hasta que encontré...

Ich bekam gerade eine Maniküre, als ich zum ersten Mal erfuhr, dass nicht alle Frauen sich gerne mit Ihren Ehemännern im Heu wälzen würden. Ich war 16 und hatte mir orange-farbenen Nagellack ausgesucht (oh, sechzehn). Ich hatte ein Buch dabei, fand aber dann schnell eine andere Quelle der Unterhaltung. Zwischen...

I was getting a manicure the first time I learned that not all wives want to, ahem, go for a roll in the hay with their husbands. I was 16 and had picked out orange nail polish (oh, sixteen). I had a book with me but it wasn't long before...
