It seems Judy McGuire’s fantastic piece, “Girl Talk: How To Avoid Dating An Abusive Freak,” was eeirily and unfortunately timely. The New York Times reports that due to a rise in teen domestic violence, many states are instituting programs designed to educate young people about the signs of abuse and the dangers those in abusive relationships face.

Or so says scientists who studied the brain scans of couples who had been together for 20 years versus couples who had recently fallen in love. They found that “one in 10 of the mature couples exhibited the same chemical reactions when shown photographs of their loved ones as people commonly do in the early stages of a relationship.” In other words, that “spark” that couples typically feel at the beginning of dating continues to exist for at least 20 years. These couples were dubbed “swans” by the scientists because the birds mate for life (as do foxes, lobsters, and penguins). [Times Online] Keep reading »
With the New Year just around the corner and winter in full swing, the desire for another warm body next to us grows every day. We don’t necessarily want someone to bring home to embarrassing family dinners so much as we want someone to drink hot-toddies with as the night grows colder and inhibitions smaller. It’s hard to feel attractive under layers of fuzzy sweaters and fuzzier legs, which makes going out to to clubs to find our mate as appealing as brussels sprout pie. More and more people are turning to on-line personals to help them find that special person to ring in the new year with, even if it’s just for one night or a few months.

The entire time I was reading “Twilight” I obsessed over the way Edward smelled to Bella and the Bella smelled to Edward. So sweet! So enticing! So mouth-watering! I sort of thought that they both probably smelled similar to the smell wafting from the “Nuts 4 Nuts” carts on the street in New York City — overwhelmingly, almost nauseatingly sweet. Well, I’ll have to wonder no longer. There’s now a “Twilight”-branded fragrance! The bottle is shaped like an apple — as Perez Hilton points out, it’s a direct ripoff of the bottle for Nina Ricci’s fragrance — and you can bet every teenage girl in the universe is going to be spritzing this crap on in the hopes that a vampire smells them and comes running.

Men’s Health mag surveyed sex positions around the globe. Although, no nasty move is indigenous to one area because we all universally get freaky! Well, here’s what they found rocked people’s worlds in different areas:
India: The Fusion
When I think of fusion, either nuclear or pan-Asian flare comes to mind. But this is a dish best served hot. He leans back, you sit on top, facing him, and lean back too. Make sure you bend your knees and pump away with a full view of all the crotch action! Keep reading »
There are so many great movies out in theaters now: “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Revolutionary Road,” “Marley & Me”… But I’m a broke ass ho who can’t afford to pay $12 a ticket, but, thanks to the TV, I saw this lil’ gem, “Bed Head,” during a film festival and it’s up on YouTube for free. Yay, for the interweb! Now, I’m not sure why the lady star is wearing a tube dress and carrying a clutch mid-day, but love is all about the suspension of disbelief.
