Ask The Astrosexologist: Am I Taking My Virgo’s Teasing Too Seriously?

I’m a Cancer (born June 27, 1989) and my lover is a Virgo (born September 12, 1987). We’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months. We both have this emotional pull and undeniable attraction towards each other and think we’re soul mates, but something keeps bothering me. I feel like he picks on me a lot. He’s critical about the way I dress and how much I weigh. For example, the day we met, he poked my thigh and was like, “Maybe you should go to the gym and work out.”

I don’t know if I’m being extra sensitive, which I am most of the time, but I love my curves and don’t want to change anything about my body. I run four times a week and eat healthy. Little things he says and does make me think maybe he’s not that into me, even though he claims to want to spend the rest of his life with me and wants me not to leave him. Am I being too sensitive for this harsh Virgo? Am I taking the little things too seriously? – Criticized Crab Keep reading »

A Great Excuse For Cheating

The next time you get caught cheating, just blame nature and your physiology. Women who have a high level of the sex hormone oestradoil may be more likely to cheat, according to a recent study of 52 women aged 17 to 30. Women with high levels of oestradoil are highly fertile and feel more attractive, which makes them more likely to flirt, kiss, or have a serious affair. Highly fertile women apparently tire easily of long-term partners and are motivated to find more desirable partners. This excuse, however, won’t work if you’re just having casual sex on the side because women with high levels of oestradoil are usually serial monogamists. But then again, I doubt your man will be able to tell whether you have a lot of oestradoil. Can they make a T-shirt for that? [Science Daily via AOL] Keep reading »

Good Sex Makes Babies

More babies are made when the people involved in the process have orgasms. When men are fully stimulated, they ejaculate up to 50 percent more than during just any ole intercourse, and an extra five minutes of going at it before he gets off can produce even more sperm. For women, scientists believe that having orgasms can help them suck up the sperm and send it on its way into the uterus. And I haven’t even told you about the pig research yet! Danish researchers have found that sows (female pigs) that were sexually stimulated by farmers during artificial insemination had a 6 percent increase on their fertility. Don’t worry, that can’t be nearly as dirty as it sounds because the Danish government gives farmers instructions on how to stimulate their pigs. Moral of the story: If you’re lucky enough to be having really good sex that’s chock full of orgasms, don’t get careless with your birth control. [The Observer] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Gloria Steinem On Men & Women’s Roles At Home

“We’ve demonstrated that women can do what men do, but not yet that men can do what women do. That’s why most women have two jobs — one inside the home and one outside it — which is impossible. The truth is that women can’t be equal outside the home until men are equal in it.”

We love vintage clothes as much as the next stylish frugal girl, so we’re psyched about the newly launched Market Publique. Sure, there are other places where you can buy old clothes online. Etsy and eBay both have loads of users selling vintage, but sometimes we get sick of sorting through mis-categorized listings.
