I'm over it, Scruff'd Up, Groun'd down to a pulp. Sick of watching the pretty boys win the CraigsLust lottery and me sitting at home with a copy of Janis Ian's, At Seventeen. So I'm doing something about it.
Many of us turn to New Year's resolutions to motivate us to improve our health, career, or love life. We think about changing our diet or exercising ...
In all this unsubtlety, there is clearly the attempt to reach through and matter. But just because you shock, it doesn't mean it has more emotional impact. In fact, I would say it has less.
This is infuriating for what it leaves out. It seems to assume folks can know who is not "HIV-infected." It also fails to mention treatment as prevention, or the implications of an undetectable viral load.
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better than a story about Michele Bachmann stranded in Siberia, we get this. Sizzle!
Artistic expression has the power to transform and transcend cultural norms. It is the artist who can push a society pass its boundaries and divisions...
I have a complicated relationship with Amy Tan. Reading The Joy Luck Club as a pre-teen, I didn't really relate to the chess-playing genius or the woman stuck in her unhappy marriage, but I thought the overwrought story important for delving into the turbulent, painful history of China
At the time it was an inchoate impulse. I couldn't explain it. I was absolutely as exhausted as Henry, but knew it had to be done. Now, years later, I realize that sex with my husband that night consecrated my marriage. It felt, to me, that our marriage wouldn't actually begin until we made love.
Most people say they find open relationships unappealing or even ethically wrong. Why is it that an open relationship, in which two consenting parties have agreed to have multiple partners, is less accepted by society than pervasive cheating?
But that old saying about it's the thought that counts is not really a superficial sentiment. Gifts need to be a genuine expression of love and well thought out. They need to come from the heart, not out of a sense of obligation or duty.
It is time that we silence the voices in our heads that tell us we are not good enough, and it is time we start shouting the phrase: "I am enough."
For many people sexual and romantic education is derived a great deal from television, movies, and, particularly for men, pornography. Objectificatio...
What makes a woman feel hot is probably a lot like fingerprints. It's different for all of us. For one woman it might be the confidence that comes with holding a powerful position, for another maybe it's what happens after a couple of glasses of wine and a husband that takes his eyes off the television long enough to listen to what she's saying that gets her going. For me, it's my body mass index.
Whether you are visiting relatives or they are visiting you, you might be considering giving up on sex for the holidays. Holidays, however, are a time...
No one wants to talk about it, but HPV (human papilloma virus) is common, sexually-transmitted, and can cause suffering and reduced quality of life. This is serious stuff, and you should take a moment to think about it now.
Men and women, but especially men, love to mistake sexiness for sex. I know I do at least. When a woman celebrates her sexiness the assumption often made is that she "wants it" because really, what other reason might a woman have for wanting to look good?
