I'm writing about sex this week -- specifically, the situation in which certain men complain about being "friendzoned" by women who choose not to see them sexually. Now, I recognize that sex is a highly-charged, volatile, and subjective issue, so it's my goal to remain as logical and objective as possible as I urge all…

What Our Reaction To The Nude Celeb Leaks Says About Us

A few days ago, the naked, personal photos of over 100 celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Ariana Grande were published to the Internet without consent from the people pictured.

6 Surprising Realities Of The Legal Weed Industry

Pot is more popular and more legal than it's ever been. Well, at least since lawmakers first started using it as an excuse to arrest Mexicans.

4 Terrible Messages That Girl-Centered Ads Are Sending

The Internet has exploded in an estrogen-charged fury of pro-girl viral ads, each more emotionally manipulative than the last.

5 Tips for Working From Home Without Going Insane

Working from home has all the advantages of supervillainy: You set the rules, no one can stop your monologues, and Internet access will cause your contempt for humanity to grow.

5 Uncomfortable Truths About Rape On College Campuses

The frustrating part for me, as a Hobart and William Smith grad (technically just a Hobart grad, because it's actually two schools that share faculty, campus, dorms, and an administration), is that it's not that surprising.

5 BS “Achievements” People Need To Stop Taking Seriously

Read any list of things that motivate employees to work harder and you'll find that recognition for a job well done regularly outranks money.

5 “Deviant” Sex Acts That Science Says Are Good For You

Sex is like a lifelong normalcy contest. To find happiness, you should spend every day worrying about the kinds of sex you like, and whether you'll ever meet someone else who shares those likes.

8 Ridiculous Sex Toys For The Budget-Conscious

Humans love sex, and humans love toys. Sex toys are a thing. We tend to think they're alright, too. But here's the thing about sex toys: All the really cool (and really frightening) gear tends to cost you a big ol' pile of cash. Have you ever wondered what an inquiring mind could achieve with just…

4 Offensive Words That Started Out As The Polite Alternative

Euphemisms are words and phrases we use when we want to avoid saying something naughty or unpleasant to think about. For example, "choking the chicken," which on the surface sounds like a beautiful, natural act, is actually a description of something that is pretty disgusting. But even though we use a euphemism so we don't have…

5 Things Your Doctor Really Wants To Say To You (But Won’t)

Doctors -- especially surgeons -- are expected to maintain a sense of decorum and professionalism at all times. I'm a board-certified neurosurgeon at a major American academic center, and while medicine is an incredibly rewarding career, it puts you in contact with a lot of people doing dumb, terrible things to their bodies.

5 Shockingly Insane “Game Of Thrones” Fanfiction Sex Scenes

5 Uncomfortable Truths Behind The Men’s Rights Movement

Until recently, you probably thought that the "men's rights movement" was just a weird fad on the Internet for sad, depressed guys who wanted to vent about their sexual frustrations, no more or less important to your day-to-day life than, say, people raging against bad movie reviews or complaining that their favorite video game company…

The 5 Most Ridiculous Products Made For Crotch Maintenance

Genitals are perhaps the only thing in the world that everyone loves and most people don't mind sharing with others.

6 Insane Sex Myths (That Are Actually True)

When that one kid back in high school told us that he'd heard that you could get pregnant from blow jobs or that the chlorine in hot tubs means you can't catch STDs, we were smart enough to call bullshit. But it turns out that we probably shouldn't have been so quick to laugh and tell him what a…

7 Ways “House Of Cards” Could Be The Best Comedy On TV

A lot of people have been watching the melodramatic political series "House of Cards" on Netflix (which I believe is a remake of the highly acclaimed "How a Bill Becomes a Law" episode of "Schoolhouse Rock"), and many of these viewers are complaining about how silly it is.
