Yikes — 19 million STD infections occur each year according to the Center for Disease Control’s NEW report this week. The numbers from 2007 are in and the stats are a total bummer. Gonorrhea and chlamydia, the most common STDs, recorded the largest number of known cases to date, 1.5 million according to the most recent assessment. However, the government agency thinks that’s a low estimate, and suspect that there are actually twice as many people who are carrying the infections. Agh! Unfortunately, the infections often go undiagnosed because they can be asymptomatic. While gonorrhea and chlamydia frequently come together in one big STD package, they are both cured with antibiotics. However, if someone isn’t a responsible sexy time partner and doesn’t get tested regularly, the diseases can wreak havoc and even do things jeopardize your ability to get pregnant. Since young women, age 15-34, are in the highest risk categories, it’s essential that we take care of our business! Go visit the gyno and let them smear your pap, why dontcha?! [CDC] Keep reading »
When we heard our friends at AskMen.com wrote a book on how to get women from the bar to the bedroom, we were convinced the “tips” were going to be wild ways to get a lady drunk. However, we found “The 11 Rules For Picking Up And Pleasuring Women” to be, well, kind of sweet. From “Express Yourself” to “Keep Her Satisfied,” the tips seemed more focused on connecting and mutual satisfaction than just an ego-fueled crotch conquest. Go figure! They should consider changing their name to AskGentlemen.com. Anyway, while those goals are inspirationally high falutin’, here are some quick, tangible, girl-approved ways a man can up his chances of wooing us from the bar to the bedroom.

OMG bitches! Sometimes life throws you a bone…or in this case, a girl boner! Diablo Cody, the former stripper/screenwriter behind “Juno”, is giving her goodies away. The pilot episode of the new TV show she’s been working on since her Oscar win, “The United States of Tara,” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday. But If you go to Showtime’s website, you can wtach the entire first episode now! I did, and afterwards I was so satisfied, I needed a smoke. The show is totally original and somehow manages to make multiple personality disorder not a cheesy soap opera premise or a pathetic cry for help. Maybe it’s because Ms. Cody sees her character as a metaphor for the modern woman who is trying to fill so many roles. “The United States Of Tara” is backed by a seriously talented cast. Thanks to the amazingly hilarious character actress Toni Collette (“200 Cigarettes,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “Muriel’s Wedding,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) and John Corbett (Aidan on “Sex and the City”), I’m hooked.

Listen, I don’t know where they get this “research” or who they’re asking, but according to a new study, women who are a size four have sex more often than size eight women. Now, I think if they continued to do the math they’d find size 16’s like me do it even more than both of them combined, because we’ve got more cushion for the pushin’! But you know, I’m really getting carried away because I’m sick of fat chicks getting accused of being unsexy or disinterested in doin’ it. Skinny or chubby, whatever, we’ve all got needs! In general, size-based statistics, like this one, seem like something a fitness “guru” would invent to get clients…oh wait, the study was conducted by a “weight loss specialist.” Ugh, girl-on-girl crime strikes again! Well, no matter how much you’re getting frisky, we all could always use some extra sexercise. That’s the only kind of personal trainer I’m going to work out for! [That’s Fit] Keep reading »
