It’s All Tears On Tyra’s Teens And Parents Sex Summit

My love-hate relationship with "The Tyra Show" strikes again: Yesterday Tyra hosted her first-ever Teens and Parents: Sex Summit all about teen sex.

4 Sex Myths That Most Guys Believe

Many men have some very disturbed ideas about sex and biology. For instance, a good friend of mine spent years believing that girls pee out their butts; he thought this until he was age 21.
