Miss Universe: Why Do We Still Have Beauty Pageants?

Women have come a long way since the inequality of the 1920s. So, why on earth are beauty pageants still so popular?

Over 5.50 million viewers tuned into Miss Universe Wednesday night. And while the competition claims to be much more than beauty pagent, an event that originated 92 years ago, we all know that’s what it is and what it enforces.

The cheesy poses, the evening wear, the fake tans and that diamond crown — as much ‘moderninization’ as this event has taken on in recent years, it’s still largely outdated and still perpetuates superficial beauty. Read more…

Drew Barrymore Reacts To Kristen Wiig Dating Her Ex

Now, she’s a mother and wife. But that wasn’t always the case for Drew Barrymore. Before meeting husband Will Kopelman, the actress was in a serious, five-year relationship with The Strokes’ drummer Fabrizio Moretti. After they split in 2006, Barrymore didn’t expect him to one day be dating one of her girlfriends!

Moretti is currently dating “Bridesmaids” star Kristen Wiig, who also happens to be one of Barrymore’s close friends (and someone who does hilarious impressions of the “Whip It” director on “SNL”). So, how does Barrymore feel? Read more…

Alarming New Facts About The “Does Size Matter” Debate

Every day I counsel men and women who are concerned about improving their sex lives. The sad truth is that most of us are very poorly educated about sexuality despite the plethora of media attention on it.

One of the questions men (and women) often ask about is penis size. Most males, at some time in their lives, worry about whether they are “big enough.”  Many women wonder whether bigger is better.

My friend Dr. David Buss and his colleague Dr. Cindy Meston wrote a wonderful book calledWhy Women Have Sex. In it, they discuss penis size and sexual satisfaction. Their results may surprise you. Read more…

Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Are On the Rise

Here’s some unsettling news: Chlamydia and gonorrhea, both which can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility in women, are on the rise and both are more prevalent in women than men. According to the the 2011 Sexually Transmitted Diseases Surveillance report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yesterday, certain groups, including young people and gay and bisexual men are at the greatest risk. Read more…

Is Casual Sex Right For You?

For all their emotional complications, “friends-with-benefits” relationships may offer one advantage: safer sex. The results of a new study show that people in friends-with-benefits relationships are more likely to use condoms during oral and vaginal sex compared to those in traditional romantic partnerships. So, what if you don’t have a “friends-with-benefits” relationship but like the idea of casual sex?

Back in the ’80s, while I was living in Europe, immersed in the world of modeling, there were lots of opportunities for casual sex. I had friends who never slept around and others who did. From this, I learned a few things.

Featured in an article on nymphomania in Elle magazine, I was labeled as someone who had a healthy relationship with sex. Looking back, I am not sure that is the case. But let’s say it was. What are the benefits of casual versus non-casual sex? And is it a good idea for you to have casual sex? Will it benefit you or not?

If you are young and single, it is your choice what you do with your body. Here are some questions to ask yourself first. Read more…
