Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

What with all the promiscuous sex the U.S. is having without condoms, we’re curious about how often you get tested for sexually transmitted diseases/infections. I will start: I last got tested, like, three years ago because I’ve been in a committed relationship for a lonnnng time, but prior to the man-friend I got tested every… READ MORE »

So, you know that story we’ve been chatting about lately? The one about how one in four New Yorkers with multiple partners (potentially a reflection of the rest of the country) doesn’t use condoms all the time?

Oh, The Bachelorette. How I regret not watching you from the first episode. Last night was the finale and boy, was is it a doozy. Jeremy returned! To rather sadly beg for DeAnna back, mind you, but he was there and delightfully less Patrick Bateman-esque. But it wasn’t enough, because DeAnna was MORE… READ MORE »

One of the sites I read quite frequently is Jezebel. I wrote for them for a little while before I launched The Frisky and really respect them as a cool and smart site for women. Many of their posts I find to be laugh-out-loud funny and others make me think deeply about and even reconsider… READ MORE »

I could honestly not give a poop about tennis, but I did go to a US Open game once and it was kind of amazing how hushed the crowd gets during a match — you can hear a pin drop, not to mention every grunt out of the players’ mouths. Anyway, I was kind of… READ MORE »

Remember that poll we conducted about how often you use condoms? Well the result are in, and a whopping 46% of you don’t use condoms EVER. We were curious and wanted more info, so for those of you that don’t use condoms, please, oh please, tell us why. … READ MORE »

Sometimes when I’m in my hippie-dippy yoga classes I think that some of what I’m hearing is a load of hooey. A couple weeks ago, the teacher in my class (who happens to be, not to brag, I swear, Uma Thurman’s brother) was talking about how we store emotional issues and trauma in our body… READ MORE »
