Meow! Google Restricts Cougar Dating Sites From Its Searches

Google has gone cougar-hunting. The search engine has classified “cougar” dating sites like as “non-family safe” and banned them from its content pages. Google ads appear on over 6,700 websites, including biggies like YouTube and MySpace.

Sad news for Samantha Jones indeed — but unfortunately Google has a glaring double standard if you compare to other dating sites. For example, most ads for, which matches young “sugar babes” with older, successful sugar daddies, are still considered “family-safe” by Google. However, dates found on don’t come with financial perks, but the goal of is to pair a “generous benefactor” with “college students” and “aspiring actresses.” It’s not prostitution … but it’s not not prostitution, if you get what I’m saying.

Girl Talk: How I Came To Love Lube

Sex has always been painful for me. Since the day I lost my virginity at the age of 16, having sex has hurt. The first few times the pain was almost unbearable, but that didn’t strike me as terribly unusual; I knew that losing your virginity often hurt and, frankly, I was just grateful that I didn’t bleed, which would’ve meant sneaking into the laundry in the dead of night to scrub my sheets. I knew that first-time sex would hurt, and wasn’t surprised when the second and third time hurt as well. I figured it would take time for my body to get used to what was going on, and for me and my boyfriend to figure it out, too. For something that’s supposedly the most natural thing two people can do, sex sure takes a lot of maneuvering, negotiating and post-game analysis. After a few tries, I thought, it would start feeling good. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: The iPhone Is Ruining My Long-Distance Relationship!

It didn’t start out this way, but I’m in a long-distance relationship. Having your boyfriend live 1,300 miles away isn’t ideal, but as far as problems in relationships go, things could be much worse: He could be in Australia or he could be into furry sex or I could have caught him cheating on me with various tattooed women after I won an Academy Award and adopted a baby.

So, this isn’t some sappy, romantic article on ways to “Survive Your Long-Distance Relationship.” Here’s the real problem: a third party has entered my relationship, causing fights, miscommunication and anxiety. She’s sleek, sexy and smooth. Her name is … the iPhone 3G. Keep reading »

365 Days In Paris: An Affair To Remember

For all women, there are universal female experiences that rank inevitably high on the embarrassment scale. Try, for example:

  • “Price check. Can I get a price check on a box of Ultra Heavy Flow Tampax tampons?”
  • “Uh, babe, did you just queef?”
  • “I can see your days of the week underwear through that skirt, and just so you know, it’s not Thursday.”

Try having a female problem in a foreign country and you’ll multiply any of your shame times 10 … Keep reading »

Japanese Couple Married By A Robot

A couple in Tokyo was recently married by, get this, a robot “priest.” The I-Fairy robots are traditionally used to give tours around museums and science exhibitions, but now I guess they can add wedding officiant to their job summary. The couple met when the bride, Satoko Inoue, worked at the company that makes the I-Fairy robots and the groom, Tomohiro Shibata, came in as a customer. They credit the robot for bringing them together, so they found it fitting that the I-Fairy would perform the ceremony. The couple say they just want people to see robots as a normal part of life and not merely as bits of metal and plastic. Fine, but where’s the romance?! The couple didn’t even touch each other during the service! Perhaps that’s just a cultural difference, but if that’s what our future with robots looks like, no thanks!

For The Week Of May 17-23, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your status is on the rise. Now is going to mark the start of a brand-new level of career success, which could have you reprioritizing your life and resetting standards in your love life. As it goes, you’ll need way more than what you have been getting, but don’t worry, things will start to organically move in that direction if you just trust in the universe and yourself.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Talk is cheap, so pay attention to the actions of your crush du jour. Not to say things are bad, but it seems he or she isn’t the most articulate person in the world and you’ll get their message in a more non-linear way. Not to say you have to crack your brain deciphering the codes, but realize it’ll be your eyes, not your ears, which will get you the answers you seek right now.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

A twist in your sex life is coming, throwing you into a hot new obsession that you won’t easily be able to wrap your brain around. Lucky for you though, for now, all you will need to do is wrap your legs around it and hold tight. Thinking too deep will be a buzz kill — it’s too soon to really think anything.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Flip the switch and let your baby get into the driver’s seat. Seems they’re filled with all sorts of fun and fabulous ideas, but it’ll take some encouraging getting them to take the lead. You can’t always be the one calling the shots. Unless you take the chance to see what they’ve truly got, how will you ever really know what pleasures you could have?

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your emotional state will reach a new balance that will have you feeling OK with whatever situation you find yourself in. Call it a rest, a truce or whatever, but do take advantage, as this is a fab time to sort your life and get that organization you crave. It’ll be the somewhat quiet things in life that you’ll know how to cherish now.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Take chances and put it on the line. Whatever you are feeling, this is the time to go out on the farthest limb and test the fates. Traveling at full speed absurd will be the only way for you to get into the right groove that will put you in line with the universe, to savor the flavors that will be ambrosia for your body and brain.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

When it comes to getting the action you need to truly be satisfied, you are going to have to travel to a mystical place. This could literally mean packing up and getting out of the country — which would be the most optimum choice. But for those living a more practical life, venturing to new turf might be your ticket to someone and something that’ll quench your thirst.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You don’t have to be wild and crazy all the time. This week, to get into the swing of things, slow down and take it behind closed doors. Time to cuddle up with your honey, indulge in long conversations, and do the more private things of love. Bringing the relationship back to the more intimate side will be like falling in love all over again!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Your patience can only last so long before curiosity gets the better of you, and this week is when you won’t be able to take it anymore. Words, emotions and all sorts of descriptive suggestions will pop out of you, throwing you into quite a tizzy. The fab news, though: it’ll feel better than you could have imagined, for you and that certain someone.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’ve never been one to get off on following the beaten path — it’s being curious that gets you off. So, as a mysterious rebel love heats up your loins, don’t be scared to run off into the wild unknown and discover a new side to that other. You’ll most likely learn the softest spots are hidden under the hardest veneers.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your quest for the perfect love is your defense, because when it comes down to just feeling the magic, you know you’ll drop your guard at the drop of a hat. This week, expect inspiration to hit you in all the craziest ways, forcing you to get off the defensive and hop over to the offensive. Seems you’ll find the view from the top to your liking.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Remember, birds of a feather flock together, so do be extra careful in scrutinizing those who are brought into your social scene this week by your latest honey, as who they are will tell you all you need to know about him. This will definitely confirm your worst fears or your biggest hopes. Either or, knowing will be a relief.

Ask The Astrosexologist: Am I This Sag Guy’s Girlfriend Or Not?

I’m a Gemini who has been in a rocky relationship with a Sagittarius for almost three years. We dated exclusively for six months and then were “dating” for about a year. We broke off our exclusivity after he decided we were done and took off. I didn’t hear from him for months. I started dating a mutual friend of ours. When that rebound relationship ended, since me and my Sagittarius were in the same group of friends, we started hooking up and hanging out again. We have never reinstated our exclusivity, but yet he cannot let the fact that I have been with other people go. We seem to argue about who I’ve been with all the time, and although obviously it bothers him, he still comes around and we usually spend our weekends together.

Why You Shouldn’t Date Your Type

You enter a bar and scope out the scene. In a matter of minutes you have already taken in the surroundings and grouped the men into two categories: “my type” and “not my type.” Into the first category go all the men who resemble past loves, celebrity crushes, your ideal match, and the image you have of yourself. Into the second category go all the poor souls who are too different from you, who aren’t dressed in a certain way, who talk to loud or too soft, who are too stuffy or too smart, who have too many friends or not enough, or any one of the number of other qualities you’ve deemed unattractive in a date.
