Kim Kardashian may not just be an example of a walking, talking publicity stunt — she could be an example of biology gone awry! Scientists have discovered a gene that may explain why some women have a problem getting or staying married. Research of more than 1,800 women found that some ladies have difficulty bonding due to a variation of the oxytocin receptor gene, known as A-allele. The A-allele gene affects how women process oxytocin, the hormone responsible for love and bonding. If a woman’s body cannot properly break down the hormone, it could affect her ability to bond with others, including her boyfriend or husband.
So maybe, just maybe, we have been harshly judging poor Kimmy for a problem she just cannot fix? (Or not.) [Huffington Post]
Most of us either have already experienced or will eventually experience the roommate who is just a little too open with their sex lives. I have definitely been kept awake by muffled moans, creaking beds, dirty talk and noises that cannot be defined while sharing a place with someone else. One of my friends even told me that she walked in on her very skinny male roommate while a rather voluptuous woman was gagging him.
Most of us are willing to put up with the occasional roommate sexcapade. But one Massachusetts college student says she has had enough — and she sued for $150K. Keep reading »

We look alike (so much so that I used her ID to party before I was even legal), have the same sense of humor and similar hobbies. Sometimes we even finish each others’ sentences like twins. There is only one huge difference between us — our dating preferences. I date just about anyone who I find attractive and interesting. My sister refuses to date outside of her race. But according to some new research, it may be time for her to loosen up, as interracial marriages are on the rise. Keep reading »

Coco — you know, the wife of rapper Ice-T — recently posted this photo to her Twitter, in which she’s laying naked alongside her nephew, prompting much outrage over the appropriateness of her lack of attire around a baby. But I gotta say, forget the nudity — that poor baby’s life is obviously in danger! He is just within a few inches of being smothered by Coco’s massive rack. His access to oxygen depends on Coco’s head remaining propped up by her left arm as she sleeps. Hello?! Coco, clothes or no clothes, be careful with those jugs. They’re dangerous! [ONTD]
Watch out for the big girls! A survey of 2,500 adults revealed some surprising statistics about the kind of underwear we buy depending on our size. Size 8 women are more likely to wear granny panties (referred to as “sensible cotton pants” in the study), while size 14 ladies are more likely to go commando. And those size 16 gals? Well, they’re busy “working it” in sexier matching sets. When it comes to making underwear choices, it seems like big girls do it better or at least “sexier.” Keep reading »
Most couples book weekend getaways to get closer to their partner. But for some, a stay at a “Divorce Hotel” will finally tear them apart forever and at a bargain price! In the Netherlands, “divorce hotels” are allowing couples to arrange divorces over the course of a weekend complete with legal documentation!
