It’s tempting to jump into relationships when we meet someone we believe is wonderful. But if it takes a few months to begin gauging someone’s character, and two to three years to truly know them, we are setting ourselves up for disaster if we commit too soon. Here are nine essential questions to help guide us. Read More On Huffington Post Women…
Several times a week, I think to myself, “Oh, thank goodness I’m not single anymore.” Today’s edition: Brown bag speed dating. Yes, speed dating where you cut holes out of a bag for your eyes and mouth and put it over your head. Seriously. Keep reading »
According to a new study from Oakland University, women who have an abundance of men in their life— coworkers, family members, friends, etc.—have more sex with their boyfriends compared to couples in which the woman has less male influencers.
Researchers claim it all boils down to a little something called “sperm competition.” In actual biology, sperm are feisty little suckers who, if in a race, fight to the death in order to be the first to fertilize an egg. This competitive nature translates to the dating world, too, in that men have a physiological desire to fight off other men. Keep reading »
While watching your partner have sex with another person is common enough to play a vibrant role in swinging and orgies, and to spawn porn parodies like “One Flew Over the Cuckold’s Nest,” in general it’s safe to assume that a conversation regarding your partner’s sexual history rarely ends well. Recalling Amsterdam trips at 19 or drunken indiscretions with a married man upon moving to New York typically don’t make for the best dirty talk. While honesty is the best policy, exchanging such details in a new relationship often leaves you wishing you left them in your past like your Bob Marley wall tapestry rather than stamped on your present like the peace sign tattoo on your ass.
As a sex writer, I can attest to the usefulness of personal anecdotes in writing. (See: This article.) People tend to be more interested in learning about “sounding” (the practice of inserting objects up the urethra) when you can describe a British man exhibiting such a kink in your bed after a tea date than simply an interview with a sexologist on the practice standing alone. Less clinical, more relatable, with a punch of humor. “The truth is stranger than fiction” said Mark Twain, although I don’t think he was referring to pinkies up pee-holes. While the general population tends to appreciate such tales, the one reader group that grimaces, perhaps secondary to my parents, are my boyfriends. Keep reading »
When you think about dating one of the Disney princes (and you know you have) it’s normally a happily ever after, having scores of royal children together scenario. But some of the princes (and for the purpose of this list, we’re also including the non-royal male companions of the Disney princesses) would actually make better rebound relationships then life long companions.

It’s no secret I’ve been hurt in the past. Patrick Bateman broke my heart and left me with some serious trust issues and therapy bills to show for it, which is why it’s imperative I end up with someone who’s open and honest about his intentions and feelings. Last week, Baby Face proved to me that he can be that person, even though what he was telling me wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear. Keep reading »
