Dear Wendy: “He Wants Us To Hit A Strip Club For His Birthday”

I have been dating my boyfriend for almost a year and I love him very much. This weekend we are celebrating his birthday and I have gone out of my way to make this birthday extra special for him and have organized gifts, dinner, and an evening out with friends down to the last detail. I am a little nervous because whenever we go out with his friends, mostly married couples or engaged, they always want to end the night at a strip club. For the past year, I have gotten out of these outings by adamantly putting my foot down that I absolutely will not go. But I know that since it’s his birthday, if he wants to go then I will not have a choice. I have been to a strip club before and it was the most uncomfortable evening of my life. The thought of having to go again just terrifies me, I’m talking knees-knocking, nervous breakdown, panic attack type thoughts. What do I do? Become a brat and potentially go home alone on his birthday night? Or suck it up and take a Xanax because I want him to enjoy his special night? I know if I go then I will have fight or flight takeover and probably end up chain smoking in the bathroom. — Strip Tease

Why Women On Dating Sites Don’t Respond To Men

Did you know that when it comes to online dating, it’s a chick’s market? Apparently, dudes get shut down left and right, and women get winked and emailed to death. If you check out, you’ll see that it’s men who are sending out plenty of emails, but rarely do they get a return email. Sucks for you, fellas! Regardless, we here at The Frisky are big fans of the males, and we thought we would explain why you never heard back from us. Keep reading »

If You’ve Got One “Friend With Benefits,” You Probably Have Two

Another day, another wasteful scientific study about “hooking up.” According to a new University of Iowa study on ““The Contexts of Sexual Involvement and Concurrent Sexual Partnerships,” people who are engaged in a “friends with benefits” relationship are more likely to have sex with other people outside that relationship. In other words, a bunch of researchers got together and determined that if you’re having casual but regular sex with a friend, you’re more likely to also be having casual sex with other people at the same time.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Watches Porn On MY Computer”

One night I was trying to pay my bills online and as I was typing into the browser a porn site came up. I asked my fiance if he had watched porn on my computer and he denied it. We live alone and porn sites were in the history of my computer, so it was clear he was lying. Two days ago, he left a tab open with another porn site. Again, he denied it was him. We are the only two people who have access to the computer and he continues to deny it was him!! I do not care that he watches porn, as long as it is not on MY computer. I told him to buy or rent movies, but this only brings on arguments where he says I am being crazy and he gets defensive. Is it not okay to ask him to not do things on my computer? What worries me even more is that he lies about it, even when the proof is right there. Websites don’t open themselves up, so why is he not being honest about it?? — Lied-to

Girl Talk: In Sickness And In Health

On Thursday night, I came down with the flu and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I felt fine at work that afternoon, but by the time I got home, my head throbbed, my throat swelled, my body ached, and every single ounce of energy has been sucked out of me. It literally took enormous willpower just to climb out of bed to go to the bathroom. Ugh.

Unfortunately, it only got worse on Friday morning. On top of the other super-fun symptoms, I had this strange experience of my forehead burning up while the rest of my body had the chills. At one point, I was shivering so strongly my teeth were chattering! When I took my temperature, it was a hundred and freaking five point three. (Brain damage starts happening at 107.6)

Being sick is never a pleasant experience. But I’m really glad that this time, my boyfriend was there to take care of me. Keep reading »

For The Week Of May 10-16, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You won’t have to say much to get your point across right now — whoever has their ears open is just waiting for you to say the word. While you might have some trepidation about opening yourself up right now, what else do you have to lose? Trying to maintain perfection is pointless if it only keeps you isolated.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Mysterious sexy surprises are in store for you now, but it’ll take some flirting with danger to get you on the path to this orgasmic ride to happy land. Yes, not everyone is as they appear. A silent dark horse that has been waiting in the wings will finally strike, and it seems that iron will be quite hot!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You can’t run from your feelings anymore! As much as you want to see the imperfections in everyone you meet, then complain about the despair you feel, this vicious cycle is about to end! Yes, a major epiphany about you in relationships is about to hit, and if all goes right, it’ll reverberate in all the right places, hitting at least an 8.9 on the orgasmic Richter scale

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re going to have to take the most practical steps out of your current emotional entanglements. While all might not sit well with your ego, you can’t think about yourself in this situation right now, as it’s about what’s for the greater good and taking in some long-term thinking. Yes, it’s not so sexy, but you’d be surprised what turns you on now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can think about it all you want, but until you begin a process, making conjectures is a waste of time. Besides, as with anything involving your heart, there are always surprises, since you’re not the only one making decisions. However, this time around, do trust there’ll be a cushion for when you make that leap, and it’ll be solid.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Agreeing to disagree is the best conclusion you can make with your baby this week, as your opinions aren’t going to change on a controversial topic. While it’ll make you want to judge each other, what’s the point? Kiss and make up and spend your week using that tension in the best way you can, behind closed doors.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

A halt to your current flirtations may strike suddenly, throwing you into a majorly confused state of mind. While stalls usually should be red flags, this time around make an exception to the rule. Seems bigger stakes are at play and whether to roll the dice now isn’t such a cut-and-dry decision. If you hold tight, that will help put the odds in your favor.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Something cold and hard that’ll make you squeal with delight is in your stars. Yes, it’s what you truly dream of — money! This week, cash is your sex and it’ll be the best release you’ve had in ages, bringing you to a new state of mind that’ll relax and comfort you in a way that’ll seem unnaturally good. As for the boyfriend, he can always watch.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’ll finally get some clarity on issues you’ve been having with your honey. Seems all answers will arrive just in time too, giving you that sense of peace you haven’t felt for so long. As for kicking him to the curb or giving it one more try, it’ll be one of those surprises you’ll have to find out for yourself.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There will be signs all around you that will tell you all you need to know, but it’ll take some objectivity to really see them for what they are instead of what you wish them to be. Sorting through your emotions has never been quite so easy. Help is there for you — if you just open your eyes.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Loving your baby doesn’t have to mean unconditionally accepting everyone also. Yes, there are a few people who aren’t around for your relationship’s best interest and for reasons unknown. However, if you want to fight the fight, it’s time to mean business. And stop trying to kiss up! Instead, take this bull by the horns and be more powerful than others assume you to be.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You and your baby will be in high demand, as you’ll be elevated to “IT Couple” status among friends, making your schedule go completely out of whack. While it may seem fun in the beginning, you will start to see a certain set of politics occurring within your social circle. Prepare to deal with that bad taste and wield your power to effectively eradicate those issues.

Ask The Astrosexologist: “I’m Pregnant, But He’s Torn Between Me And His Ex!”

I’m an Aquarius in a relationship with a Sagittarius. We’ve been together for about six months. He was married before we got together and separated from his wife just before he got with me. He was also my boss (that’s how we met). At the beginning, he was very happy to be with me, spent time with me, told me he loved me, etc. I love him very much.

However, in January he went a bit funny. It turns out his ex wife had been speaking to him, telling him she loved him and that they should be together and this confused him. He didn’t want to hurt her, but he loves me and wanted to be with me. Anyway, I thought we had sorted this out, but recently he has been doing the same thing again, acting different with me, as though I am just a friend, and acting as if he doesn’t want to talk to me or want me around. This is very hard for me to deal with, as I am six months pregnant, and I want to talk to him. I still love him.

I want to know if this is going to keep happening? Is he going to keep running back to his ex? He says he doesn’t love her or want her, it’s me he loves and I want to believe him, I really do. I just find it hard to trust his word, as he has said all this before. What am I supposed to do? I love him too much to just leave him. Can you help? – C.

What Not To Say To A Lesbian

Lesbians are great for hanging out with, talking to about sports and beating you in arm wresting. Unfortunately, the porn industry has also done a pretty good job of convincing you lesbians also want to have sex with you.

Luckily, this real, flesh-and-blood lesbian is here to set you straight (heh). Without further ado, here are a few lines that are almost certain to get you ousted from lesbian ladies’ night at your local pool hall. Read more Keep reading »

Questions For Our Mothers: Simcha’s Mom

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re interviewing our moms to find out how their lives changed when we were born and what they learned about love and life as a parent. Today, Simcha’s mom.

My parents met through the family yentas. My great-aunt Molla and my great-grandma Rose were in the same women’s group, Hadassah, and they got to talking. The next thing my dad knew, he was required to call up this nice new friend’s hot, young granddaughter and take her out on a date. Sick of Molla constantly fixing him up, he told her this was the last date suggestion he’d ever take from her. And he was right.

Over a decade later, they made my brother and me. Although I was the much cuter baby, obviously, I was also a handful … not that my mom would ever admit it. She’s a lady, the kind who wears pantyhose, even during the hot Florida summer, and ’80s power suits with big sunglasses. She left some pretty high heels to fill.

Secure in the forms of birth control I use, I asked my mom a little bit about what’s it’s like to be a mother.
