From Here To Eternity: Dangerous Kisses, Illicit Love

Sometimes a kiss is more than a kiss. Sometimes it turns into friends with benefits, and in some cases, it signals the beginning of a dangerous liaison.

In the classic movie “From Here to Eternity,” as our DVD Movies Examiner, Charles Wiebe points out, “The scene that will be forever remembered, arguably one of the most famous in the history of cinema; Lancaster and Kerr laying on the beach in an embrace as the surf foams up around them. She responds to his passionate kiss saying ‘I never knew it could be like this!’” Continue reading

But their’s was illicit love. If you are llying for love and telling yourself that the married man or woman with whom you are involved is really the love of your life — then it is may just be excuse to avoid commitment. Keep reading »

Googling Your Date: A Cautionary Tale

Most of you probably Google a date’s name before you go out with him — some of you probably Google his name before you AGREE to go out with him (I know I would) — but how many of you Google a date’s email address? If you think that’s a crazy idea, too stalker-ish or whatever, have I got a cautionary tale for you! Recently, a friend of mine we’ll call “Angie” met a guy she thought might hit it off with her roommate — we’ll call her “Sheila” — and set about putting them in touch. “But I’m actually attracted to you,” the guy said to Angie, to which she replied honestly that she was already seeing someone and, besides, he wasn’t really her type anyway (he’s heavily tattooed and pierced — something she’s not into, but her roomie is). “Fine,” he said, “But will your roommate put me in my place like you will?” Angie assured him that Sheila was no doormat and would put him in his place if need be. “And you told her what I look like?” He asked. Angie assured him that she told Sheila about his tattoos and piercings and that she was totally fine with it. Keep reading »

How To Kiss Well

I am an aficionado of the kiss. No other act is so simple and so intimate. The light suction, the flick of the lip, the playful nibble, the deep advance and retreat of the tongue—a good kiss is like jazz, an improvisation of melodies, flirtatious staccatos, and passionate brassy crescendos. A good kiss is a rapport enacted physically, like sex, but more erotic.

What He’s Really Thinking When He Sees You Nude

“Hi Kristen, I have a problem that I think many women might have. I am a little embarrassed to have my boyfriend see me completely nude. To me my body seems just average I guess, nothing spectacular and certainly not one I would call sexy. However, my guy likes to see me undress and worse, likes to have the lights on during sex! To be fair to him, he has never made a negative comment about my body. On the contrary he seems to like it! I can’t help but wonder though, what is he really thinking when he sees me naked!”—–Callie

What’s he really thinking when he sees you nude? Two words: eye candy. And quite honestly Callie, he’s more than likely not thinking at all! Continue reading

  • Is It True Men Just Want Sex?

    A lot of women are conditioned to believe that all men want women for is Sex. Men are the enemy, as they only have one thing on their mind. They want to abuse you and use you, and when they get what they came for, they’ll leave. This is not true, well not completely.

    It is true that men have an instinct and inborn desire for sex, as women have an instinct to have children, just like the primates who came before us.

    It is true that women can manipulate men to want to be in a relationship with them by using sex as a tool. Continue reading

    Horror Stories: Dating Set Ups Gone Wrong!

    When my grandma called me a few weeks ago to make me promise I’d go out with her friend’s grandson if he called me, I stupidly agreed. You see, my thinking was, What guy is really going to call some girl he doesn’t know because her grandma says she’s a catch? And even if he did defy my cynical expectations and call me, good old grandma told me a solid five times that he is just “so handsome, Lily, you have no idea. And witty, too!”

    So when mystery man did, in fact, call a week later, I paused briefly before agreeing to lunch. I mean, if worse came to worst, at least I’d have something pretty to look at while contemplating ripping my arm off just for the excitement.

    Never. Again.

    My Computer Made Me Gay

    “I see an exciting adventure in your future, a new sexual experience that forever changes you,” she said, tracing the sole of my foot with one soft fingertip. Her husband grinned at me from the bed. I sat half-naked in the overstuffed armchair and trembled with nerves.

    This is not how I’d imagined my first — or any — threesome. I’m not bisexual, and I can count the number of times I’ve been physically attracted to a woman on one hand, with two fingers left over. Keep reading »

    Are Facebook And Hookups The New Frontier Of International Relations?

    Cultural conservatives and grannies alike are bemoaning the end of an era. They wax on about a time when people wrote letters on parchment with fountain pens instead of posting OMG’s and WTF’s on Facebook walls. They reminisce over the days of proper courtship, when holding hands was considered forward. Many adults these days see the rise of internet communication and “hookup culture” as the undoings of society as we know it. While I love a good old fashioned postcard and swoon when I get taken out on a real date, I don’t think Facebook and hookups are going to lead civilization astray. In fact, I boldly assert that modern technology and modern “relationships” are the new frontiers of international diplomacy. Keep reading »
