All too often, people blur the lines between actor and character. We want the person on the screen to be the person on the talk shows. We don't allow celebrities to make mistakes, and when they do they make the covers of magazines for all the wrong reasons.
Were the Beatles right? Is love really all you need for a good marriage? Actually that's a terribly destructive myth.
Even though we're a decade and a half into the new 21st century world of romantic relationships, women are still clueless about what men really want.
I look at my father now on the couch -- still hoping for me to reveal the mystery of women, wives like my mother and I who, as he once said to me, "leave their marriages because of sex." Who are we? I wonder.
When you are in sync and feel harmonious, it can eliminate any room for someone else to come between you.
It's Halloween time, and you can never tell what scares people. But we're going to try and find out together. See, it's not just heights or enclosed spaces or spiders (or clowns) that send people into fits of terror.
Let's face it: there's a strange universal satisfaction upon receiving the information that you are arbitrarily happier and more successfully in love than your ex. If you're not the person who started dating again first, you've lost the game.
It is such a lovely phase of relationship; a phase we'd all like to capture in a bottle and return to frequently, right? However, for many of us, we drift away from this level of bliss and rapture, never to return. But, that doesn't have to be your destiny.
Nowhere in the world does a girl at 16 occupy the same social space as a woman at 26 -- and this has nothing to do with the way she is perceived or what is expected of her body. Before an individual can truly claim adulthood, some things that we have no control over must occur.

Spanking can be used as a form of foreplay or it can be a stand-alone event. I have found that spanking during coitus can bring on the most powerful orgasms, I am talking serious full-body-holy-crap-orgasms that you will be talking about for weeks.
National Coming Out Day (NCOD) is not about pressuring people to come out. What NCOD can do is highlight the difficulties that people still face when thinking about coming out. And if that can, in turn, make everyone think a little about how they can help those people not feel so alone, then that's surely a good thing.
I have pressured people into sex. I have had partners say they weren't in the mood and tried to change their minds. I have sulked when they didn't. And I did this for years without realizing it was wrong. Why? Because I'm a straight woman.
Avoid romance, drama, and even action- violent explosions turn some people on (seems reasonable). Instead, check out the kid's side of Netflix- any of the "Air Buddies" movies should work. For a festive c*ckblock, check out "Spooky Buddies"- it might just scare him so bad he'll forget he even wanted to get some in the first place.
If you feel or even sense that you shouldn't say something, then don't say it! What good can come of that? I may love hearing what you have to say, but I can guarantee that if you already know that you shouldn't tell me something, you are probably correct.
