Not sure if that mystery hottie messaging you on MySpace is really a cute guy or an old lonely woman with 50 cats that just likes to role-play? A new website program called the Gender Genie claims it can tell whether someone is a man or woman by their writing. Using algorithms developed by Moshe Koppel at Bar Ilan University and Shlomo Argamon from Illinois Institute of Technology, the site decodes any passage by any author and makes its determination instantly. Although I’ve always wanted a penis of my very own, when I checked my last blog post about Dick Cheney, it said I was a overwhelmingly a dude. Huh. This just further proves my theory that I’m actually a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body. [Gearlive]

Despite the fact that none of us are teens or from the Midwest (well, except for me! Hooray for Ohio!), we are majorly down with the Midwest Teen Sex Show. These web-isodes are hilarious and educational – we had completely forgotten that learning can be funny! People of all ages should embrace the awkwardness that is talking about sex. For example: “Once you’ve put something into the butt, don’t put it anywhere else unless you’ve thoroughly cleaned it. And don’t use bleach.” Also, don’t forget, “If the thought of pooping grosses you out, you’re not ready for anal sex.” [Midwest Teen Sex Show] Keep reading »

STD Awareness Month has got us thinking about which STDs we consider the worst (besides AIDS, because, c’mon) — I vote for gonorrhea, personally. But then I wonder about dudes, and how much they really know about STDs. Do they know enough to vote for the worst? Their responses, after the jump. Keep reading »

Sex is all about give and take. A study at the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that even though 475 U of M undergrads didn’t need to use sex to get provisions (that’s what parents’ bank accounts are for), many did use it to get other things — help with Econ 302, maybe? Since the students didn’t have any needs that they actually had to use sex to fulfill (i.e., hummingbirds mate to gain access to the most productive flowers guarded by larger males), this suggests something hard wired about the behavior.

I’ll admit that my understanding of the inner workings of the male mind is sort of limited. However, that doesn’t mean you should discard the suggestions I provide in my weekly date-night articles because let me tell you, I do my homework. In addition to soliciting tips and probing the minds of every one of my guy friends, their friends, and pretty much every dude that crosses my path, I also make sure to ask every male celebrity for his take on what makes a girl look sexy and what they like to see their ladies wearing on a date. Sure I have to deal with the fact that they usually interpret this as me hitting on them, but it’s all in the name of research!
I don’t know how many of you watched the show Make Me A Supermodel. I was given the chance to interview all the cast-offs plus the show’s co-host, Tyson Beckford, and made sure to find out what gets their pulses racing a little faster. Let’s see what they had to say, shall we? Keep reading »
As many as one in five women in the U.S. suffers from postpartum depressive symptoms, according to a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. To tell whether you might have symptoms, answer these questions: 1) Since your baby was born, how often have you felt down, depressed, or hopeless? 2) Since your new baby was born, how often have you had little interest or little pleasure in doing things? If you answered “always” or “often” to either question, you might want to get yourself checked out.
