Preventing sexual violence takes all of us, working together in big and small ways to create a culture of safety and respect on college campuses and beyond. It's time to act.
When men reach out to me, it's usually about their fears surrounding having and sustaining erections. Men -- just like women -- worry about getting it on. In our culture, it's all about penetrative sex. But a hard penis is not everything when it comes to making love. It's simply not all there is.
Even if we're not in love, it can be hard to walk away from something, however imperfect, when loneliness is the other option. If you're beginning to realize the relationship you're in is headed for a dead end, here are a few tips to help get you through the worst of it.

Like your home, your online dating profile could more than likely use a spring cleaning, especially if it has remained the same all winter. The term shopworn also applies to online dating profiles, because they begin to look tattered and picked over if they haven't been changed or updated in a while.
Once they are free from their marriages or long-term relationships, the majority of male fantasies revolve around younger women. Even if they've never settled down, when they finally decide to do it, it's usually with someone young enough to produce a family.
When I was younger, I could tease my husband that he could be replaced with a tennis ball and a big fat pillow. I could be cocky in those days because I was getting my quota. Recently, I confessed to my daughters that I still have sexual desires.

"Moving in together isn't a big deal. We basically spend every night together anyway. What could be different?" Good one.
Nowadays our endless amount of choices, make us feel like there's so many options, we can't even commit to a date. We're always looking for the next best thing. Today's society is as confused as ever.
If you're in one of these relationships and have been for some time, even though you know you need to get out, these are the five fears that might be keeping you stuck and their antidotes.

These 10 questions are things you should ask each other in order to have a more harmonious, fulfilling marriage together. The answers to these questions shouldn't be deal-breakers -- but knowing the answers to these questions should help make you a better spouse.
Begin by making your own happiness a priority. What does this have to do with dating? When you're happy, you glow. When you glow, men are attracted to you.
After each date, I feel the urge to call someone, to tell them what I just did, to brag. That I wanted to do something that seemed porny, unattainable, and weird. And I got it. I'm getting it. I'm getting it on the regular. It's the most overtly sexual life choice I've ever made, and it's fun.
