Let's set aside Carrie's shoe collection and the ladies' abundant spare time for a moment. After all, it's not a documentary, it's a TV show! Other than the emotionally gratifying but entirely absurd ending when Carrie and Mr. Big rode off into the Parisian sunset, there was a lot of truth on display.
Having a blog, even a modestly successful blog, requires a staggering amount of maintenance. Especially a sex blog, like mine. I've done five photo shoots, the most recent occurring two weeks ago.
Does she love you the way that you need to be loved? If your gut instinct says no, that doesn't make her a bad person, but it does mean you should probably hold out for the woman who does.
Aside from the obvious upsides of masturbation that we know and love, here are some of my favorite positive side effects of a routine, healthy dose of self-love.
With time, I've learned that real love is made of the everyday stuff that cements a relationship over the years, the experiences that build a family, and the security and stability that make a home.
Pleasure is about being happy and feeling good about ourselves. Living a life filled with pleasure can make us feel sexier, younger and more energetic. It can all start with the creation of your very own 'Pleasure Plan'.
Expectations are a good, natural part of life as long as you are honest about them and take responsibility for them. Hidden expectations cause trouble. Own your desires, don't apologize for them or deny their existence.
Thinking of playing a little very candid camera with your other half? Engaging in your own sexual shoot, whether as the star or the director or both, can automatically make things more dramatic and theatrical, even if you end up keeping most of your clothes on or refuse to make any cliched "orgasm faces."
First dates can be pretty nerve-racking. We can find ourselves plagued with fears and worries because we don't know what to really expect.
While you're thinking he may change his mind, he's thinking you'll change yours -- and while he hasn't, you have. Because you keep showing up.
Women who date widowers are sometimes stunned when an actively grieving man presses eagerly for sex. Our culture mandates no 'correct' grieving process, and grieving is unique to every individual, but most experts agree that men and women mourn in different ways.
That iPhone text bubble is your worst nightmare as well as your best friend. You think you're playing the game, but they're just playing with your heart.
When you find out a guy has been married before, do you hit the brakes? Worry that he may have too much... baggage? I tell you what: You should be far more afraid of the dudes with zero baggage. I personally have never trusted someone who travels a little too light.
We've all been there. Sex with a mate that is boring or, even worse, plain bad. Perfunctory foreplay, a hand or tongue that never seems to find the right place or the right rhythm, the thrust that starts too soon or is over too fast.
I have been a member of a popular online dating service for a little over a year now, and I have to say that, overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of men I've met online. Yet despite my generally positive experiences, I have come across a few (hundred) profiles that completely baffle me.
