A study by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine claims “degrading sex lyrics” inspire impressionable, virgin teens to hump for the first time. While we thought this whole debate was put to bed back when Elvis thrusted his pelvis, the doctors wanted to test today’s hottest Billboard tracks on teens. To their credit, the study does not vilify a particular genre of music, just the nature of the poetry. However, if you like to get freak nasty, then one man’s undignified playlist of no-no’s can make for another woman’s ultimate sex mix! So, here are some of the tracks used in the study along with a bunch of bonus knockin’ boots classics from my high school days. Here’s to getting it on — or off… Keep reading »
On a daily basis, the average American is cutting back on expenses BIG time, especially when it comes to their social lives. Dinners at restaurants have been replaced by cooking at home, seeing movies in the theaters, at a whopping $12 a ticket seems excessive when you can wait until the film in on DVD, and traveling? For fun? Not in this economy!
But one social activity that’s NOT seeing a dip in participation is online dating. According to The New York Times, Match.com had its strongest fourth quarter in the last seven years. An easy explanation is that though times may be tough, loneliness is loneliness, no matter how much money you have in your bank account. Rich or poor, employed or recently laid off, everyone wants to have love. With that in mind, here are four reasons why online dating is recession proof. Keep reading »

There was a period of time when our handbag contained 15 different kinds of lip gloss, balm, and other assorted goo that we used depending on the occasion. There was one that made our pout look more kissable, one for when our lips were really chapped, and another when we wanted to resemble Dita Von Teese, only with clothes on. Now, we’re a one-balm kind of girl, and Weleda Everon is our soul mate. [$5, Weleda.com]

Last night I was a having dinner with a friend of mine, who recounted a hilarious tale about her recent trip to the gynecologist, in order to get a birth control prescription. She’s currently sleeping with a younger guy (she’s 30, he’s 22) and they apparently have, uh, rather enthusiastic, somewhat rough, sex. My friend also has mild anemia, so she bruises easily. When she got to the doctor and was putting on her gown, she realized that she had forgotten that her chest was majorly bruised from a recent romp. Given that a breast exam is a routine part of a gynecological check up, she was instantly mortified about what her doctor would think. During the exam she pretended to be distracted by a particularly compelling article in Us Weekly, but after her doctor was through with his poking and prodding, he asked her to get dressed and come into his office. When she sat down, he said to her, “The bruises on your chest are cause for concern. Are you being abused by your boyfriend?” It was bad enough that he had noticed them, but to have to explain to her doctor — who’s pushing 70 — that her bruises were the result of rough sex and not physical abuse was downright mortifying. “No, I’m not being abused. I’m just dating a 22-year-old,” she said, in hopes that he would get her drift. She’s not sure if he understood what she meant, but she definitely thinks he didn’t believe her.
This story cracked me up, but also made me think that everyone must have at least one embarrassing gyno tale in their pocket. Tell yours, in the comments! Keep reading »
