This exaltation of all things manly forces those of us who don't necessarily fit within those rigid gender constructs to make one of two choices: rebel or conform. I've tried both and I can say from experience -- it takes a real man to be a queen.
You turned a little spill into a scene from "Carrie." He was nice about it, it sounds like he would have been happy to keep going and he continued to text you. But you? You freaked out, stopped responding to him and have probably been acting all weird at the office.
I've read and heard so many accusations against the LGBT community by the religious right that I've now come to the conclusion that these folks are just sloppy with what they say. Seriously, it's as if they don't care that eventually someone will demonstrate how incoherent their claims are.
In their youth, baby boomers were well known for breaking taboos, especially with regards to sexual behavior. Easier access to birth control and changing moral values contributed to that. Now that this generation is approaching retirement age, it appears that some of these attitudes have survived and influence how sex among older adults is viewed today.
Belle Knox, who is impressively sagacious at just 18, is joining the company of some tremendous voices in the industry who are redefining what it means to be a sex worker.
If you want to have a radically mindful, loving, connective, passionate, intimate experience that may or may not include non-procreative sex, you may want to consider some of the following advice.
Defects, he had a few, and Daniel was perfectly willing to own them. The 34-year-old businessman from Spain revealed one of those "defects" (his word)...
I'm a victim of the messages we get hundreds of times a day telling us subliminally and literally that sexual activity is the gold standard and if you're not having any, you're missing out. You're marginalized. Your life is stagnant. How liberating would it be to just let that go?
My daughter told me that she thinks that my husband is a lunatic. My husband tells me that our daughter is a brat. I don't know where to turn.
Most who watch the film probably care deeply about marriage and sexuality. These viewers believe in Jesus, and they look to him for guidance. Yet when it comes to Jesus, there is anything but certainty about issues of intimacy and sexuality.
What made these men think that there was a natural progression from platonic friendship to future romantic coupling? What happened to the mutual commitment to the values and benefits of a successful platonic relationship?
Whenever a new study of gay men shows, yet again, that we are having bareback sex, the arbiters of sexual rectitude among us decry this behavior as shameful, shocking, and murderous. So you can just imagine runaway pearls showering the floor when HuffPost Gay Voices reported on such a study.
Mark Regnerus and the Austin Institute want the suppression of female sexuality back, and they want it back badly. Women, they argue, should be doing it for their sisters. Now, how far they want to wind the clock back they haven't stated.
When my girlfriends come to me for advice about the guys they're dating, I don't advise them from a gay point of view: I come from my straight guy "Mike" perspective, just like the guys making them insane.
The person who's truly right for you is probably cleverly disguised as the one you work with every day. Or the one who you've casually known in your circle of friends for five years. Who has seen you at your best and at your worst. And is still there, a big believer in your immense potential.
B, thank you for letting down your third wall, for sharing your inspiration, your fantasies, your truth with us. Even though I don't know you, I feel we have a little more in common than I realized before, and you are a stunning emblem of what it means to be a woman -- flaws and all.
