Are You Dating A Cat Or A Dog?

A lot of people think of acts of romance as being gender-specific. Men should bring home bouquets of long-stemmed roses and women should wear naughty lingerie to keep the fire burning in their relationships. The problem with this kind of thinking is that it perpetuates false gender roles and actually misleads people into following a set of rigid sex-centric guidelines that ends up hurting the relationship — and disregards your uniqueness as a couple. I have a solution. (And I’d love to have you join me on the Love On Purpose Revolution Telesummit, where you can hear top relationship experts like me share our best strategies for creating love on purpose in your life!)

So here’s my secret technique: consider romance from the perspective of a cat or a dog. Read more on Your Tango…

The Beginner’s Guide To Sexploration

One of the great things about being in a relationship is getting to relax and have more fun in bed. But if you’ve always had sex the same old way (missionary again?) — or you’ve never put your fantasies into words — it can be hard to imagine suddenly discussing your fantasies openly with your partner, no matter how solid your relationship. “Hey, honey, let’s try some role playing. You call me Sookie, I’ll call you Bill, and don’t bite me until I tell you to.” Rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?

But think about it: If you can’t express your private fantasies to the one person you’re most intimate with, then who can you share them with? Sexploration — indulging your naughty side by acting your sexual fantasies together — is one the best (and most fun!) ways to bond with your partner. It requires trust and openness, of course — plus a healthy dose of adventure. Read more on Your Tango…

Master The Art Of “Flirtexting”

Texting? It’s more than that. Sexting? Not exactly. Welcome to ‘flirtexting’ — the “sweet nothings” of the digital world.

Emoticons. Acronyms. Hashtags. In order to keep up with our evolving digital culture, we’ve invented plenty of new ways to communicate — and the language of love is no different. Texting with your significant other is one of the best ways to stay connected throughout the day — and it can also be one of the sexiest and most creative. In fact, ‘flirtexting,’ as we like to call it, is practically an art form, and anyone can be a Van Gogh. We asked digital dating and e-flirting expert Laurie Davis, author of Love At First Click, to explain what exactly flirtexting is — and how to master it. Read more on YourTango…

How To Make Skype Sex Less Awkward

There are many reasons to be in a long-distance relationship. Maybe you met the man of your dreams on spring break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and he happens to live in Seattle while you live in Atlanta. Whatever the reason, your relationship is basically restricted to online dating.

You not only miss your significant other, but you’re constantly tortured by watching other lovebirds who aren’t separated by state lines. Mastering the art of Skype sex is crucial to any long-distance relationship, but it only works if the two of you can stop breaking into hysterical laughter and eventually get turned on — resulting in a hot and heavy Internet sexcapade. Let’s take a look at how to have non-awkward Skype sex. Read more on YourTango…

Why Don’t More Women Talk About Masturbation?

Male masturbation — it’s everywhere you look from late night TV to songs on the radio. In fact, it’s become so commonplace to talk about male masturbation that it’s even become a joke. Men get to have all the fun making love (to pies and socks and all sorts of other imaginative things). So why don’t we talk about female masturbation on the same level?

Even in my 10 years in this business of selling sex toys (and talking to more than 10,000 women about it), it’s still rarely discussed and women almost never admit to doing it. Why is that?

Why are there no cute jokes and funny euphemisms for women who masturbate? Where are the female equivalents of “rubbing one out,” “rosy palm,” “sex with someone you really love,” “spanking the monkey” or “choking the chicken”? Men talk about this a lot! And most importantly, they talk about it with no shame. Read more…

Amanda Bynes’ Craziest Tweets To Date

Amanda Bynes

Amid her legal troubles and moving from LA to NYC (to start, um, a ‘career in fashion design’), one-time child star Amanda Bynes has also been busy creating and deleting Twitter accounts and tweeting plenty of water-cooler fodder along the way.

And while the account from which she tweeted President Obama asking him to fire the police officer who arrested her for a DUI last year is no longer with us, her most recent account—created at the end of January—has made quite an impact for only having 64 tweets. Between selfies of her startling makeover, which includes various crazy-long blonde wigs, cheek piercings and excessively heavy-handed makeup, and random (and often crazy sounding) tweets, she’s doing little to make the public forget about her legal issues (a DUI, hitting a police car with her car, a hit and run, you know). Read more…
