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?

As you pass through your teenage years via the valley of lost virginities and the college years of random sex, the simple act of kissing starts getting really underrated. It makes sense, I guess. When you’re 16, the make-out sessions aren’t leading anywhere (at least for me, I started kind of late) so you can just relax and get into it. Making out is EXCITING at that age. It’s fun, it feels amazing. But, when you get a little older, kissing turns into foreplay – a means to an end. Seriously, when was the last time you just made out for hours with a guy without him expecting more?
But kissing is awesome. No matter what, there are some kind of kisses that will always maintain that magical quality. Or, if they don’t anymore, people should revive that! ‘Just’ kissing is nice. Here are 7 of the best kind of kisses ever. Read more…

I’ve noticed a startling trend in the dating world: Something I’ll call the “faux-girlfriend” phenomenon. That’s when a guy treats you like a girlfriend in a lot of ways — you spend holidays together, you’ve met his parents, you have your own clothes drawer at his place. In fact, things are so girlfriend-y that it seems the next logical step would be fiancee-y and then wife-y. But something insidious and underhanded is going on. There are men out there (and women too, I imagine) who treat you like a girlfriend — but not really. That’s usually because while he wants the regularity and companionship of a real girlfriend, he doesn’t want the responsibility, the downsides, or the idea of cutting off his options.
How do you know if you might be the faux-girlfriend? Here’s six bigtime clues. Read more…
Horndogs looking for a quick cuddle-and-run, listen up. A new study from really smart scientists has found that the chances of a cuddle session leading to sex are only one in six.
Researchers at the University of Michigan looked at the methods, motivations and eventual outcomes of the average couple’s cuddling sessions, and the results show it usually only leads to conversation, not copulation.
Over 500 men and women in relationships
were asked about the nature of their cuddling, defined as “intimate, physical and loving contact that does not involve sexual behavior and that involves some degree of whole body touching, not just hand to hand or lips to lips.” Read more…
As women, we’ve been programmed to think if we sleep with a guy on the first date, the relationship will never become serious. But we all know couples who went home together the first night and ended up married. So what gives?
In my opinion, it depends on two things: (1) Is the guy looking for a relationship? (2) And if so, would he have a relationship with a woman who would sleep with a guy on the first date?
According to a new survey by WhatsYourPrice.com, 80 percent of men said they did not see the relationship getting serious after sleeping together on the first date.
So, when should you take the chance? If you find yourself in any of the following four situations, you just might want to go for it! Read more…
