You’re stuck in an 18-inch wide seat, traveling at 500 MPH in an aluminum tube. A woman (or dude with frosted hair) is trying hard not to roll her eyes as an unaccompanied minor keeps pinging the call button. The pilot wonders how he’s going to continue keeping his west coast family from finding out about his east coast family. And a good-looker is thumbing through a dog-eared copy of The Bonfire Of The Vanities less than a yard away from you. You’re single, what do you do?
The humdrum tedium of air travel can be easily filled with a new friend and some snappy patter. I’ve had pretty good luck dating ladies I sat next to on flights and so can you. If you’re into men, these tips should still work.
1. Wait until the flight is at least half over. An early pounce makes for an awkward next few hours. Read more…
It’s not an easy thing to do — erasing someone you used to love from your life. It’s more than difficult, to be honest. It rips at every part of your being, both physically and emotionally, but it must be done.
You can’t move on without letting go, and the first step is getting rid of the tangible items that are glaring reminders. It will be tough at first, but in the long run, you will have spared yourself additional pain. Read more…
It’s easy to think that some behaviors are just inherently male or female. Boys like to play with trucks. Girls like to play with dolls. Men propose marriage, women take their husband’s last name. But what may be normal in the Western World isn’t necessarily around the world.
See what we discovered about gender norms across the globe.
1. Belgium: Boys Wear Pink
When it’s time to paint a baby’s bedroom or pick out an outfit, many of us immediately choose pink for girls and blue for boys. But it wasn’t always that way, and, in some places, it still isn’t. Up until the early 20th century, the opposite was true — blue was considered feminine and pink was considered masculine. Pink was thought to be stronger, and blue was thought to be dainty, hence the gender distinction. In contemporary Belgium, this is still considered normal. Read more…
You know how the Victorian era was all fainting couches and chastity belts? Evidently, the Restoration era* was off the chain.
Per The Guardian, a book called Aristotle’s Compleat Master-Piece is now being brought to auction. While the book was originally published in an era best referred to as the Restoration, around 1680, the copy in question was produced somewhere in the neighborhood of 1760 in the so-called Georgian era.
Art, architecture and smut (fine, pornography and erotica) has coexisted since the first cave bro sketched a spear going from his crotch into a cave woman’s crotch rather than from his hand into a mastodon’s keister. Tell me that pyramids don’t remind you of early man trying to cover his turgidity with a gauzy linen sheet. Read more…
While divorce may be something families dread, supermodel Heidi Klum prefers to look at the silver lining.
“Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No,” Heidi Klum told Marie Claire about her divorce from Seal. “But everyone is healthy. We’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick] — god forbid — that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted. It’s not what anyone wanted. But it’s not a real problem.”
Klum, who filed for divorce last April after seven years with Seal, is now dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten — who is close to her age. At 39, Klum has no intentions of becoming a ”cougar.” Read more…
After months of waiting, it’s finally almost time for new season of “Girls.” Tonight, season 2 premieres, and while we haven’t seen it yet, we can practically guarantee more awkwardness, laugh-out-loud dialogue, and of course, those unbelievably relatable relationship moments.
Until the premiere, hold yourself over with these love lessons we learned from the Brooklyn quartet.
1. Tell Him How You Feel
In Hannah’s best moment of honesty, we see her tell her then-hookup Adam, who sent her a racy picture meant for someone else, how she really feels. No, she doesn’t want him to take her to brunch or be her boyfriend, she just wants him to be obsessed with her and want to sleep with only her. (Sound familiar?) As much as we giggled during this epic monologue, this was a huge moment for Hannah and the audience. It’s the first time she’s telling Adam what she wants. It’s refreshing and empowering. Finally, she’s not just going along with a strange or uncomfortable sex request. Read more…
Are you bored in the bedroom? Becoming more sexually assertive can be one of the easiest and fastest ways to get more of what you want from your sex life. If you are ready to take ownership of your pleasure and turn up the heat between the sheets, here are a few simple tips that can empower you to create the pleasurable sexual experiences you deserve and desire.
