In Praise Of Angry Sex

Mostly, I’m a girl who mopes when she’s upset. I’m not intending to be passive-aggressive: I simply turn inwards when I feel disappointed, sad or hurt. Like many women, none of those feelings leave room for me to feel at all sexual. I simply cannot compartmentalize myself like that. Up until recently, I would have added “angry” to the list of adjectives that are a personal boner killer. And then I had angry sex and realized, “This. Is. Awesome.” Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’ve Fallen Out Of Love With My Deployed Boyfriend”

I have been dating the same guy for almost two years now and he joined the Marines literally like a week into our relationship. I barely see him and he is currently deployed. I did think I was in love with him but since he’s been gone my feelings have gotten more and more weak and I talked to my friends and family about what I should do but they all say it would be horrible of me to end our relationship while he is gone, especially because he lent me his car while he is away. But I can’t help feeling myself drifting further and further away from him and just wanting to be able to go out and be a teenager. What do I do!? — Military Girlfriend

For The Week Of January 3-9, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

A big whiff of the truth will be filling your head, making you so over holding grudges and all about apologies, that your love life will have a turn-about like no other, making you and your boo hustle faster on decisions that really set you on a firmer path to the future. Yes, drop the tough girl act and dive into the mush now, because that is where you’ll find the sweetest nectar.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Talk may be cheap, but it’s got to start somewhere. Realize no one is a mind reader and if you don’t lay it on the line in the rawest way, then no one is going to get what you’re feeling and rarely will you get what you want. While decision-making may not start smoothly, understand the pace will take patience to get perfect, but believe and you will get it down just in time.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Honesty is the best policy and once you start downing spoonfuls of it and facing your worst fears, all will be fine. After all, how serious does life have to be for you? Sure, you want respect, but you don’t have to be humorless in having it. If anything, the more you can laugh, the more admiration will come, as that’s the kind of love that’ll do you good right about now.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Splurge on yourself and live it up, as now is when you need to give love to the most important person in your life — you. Yes, time to recharge your batteries, update your look, overspend and indulge in one too many cocktails, etc., etc. Whatever thrills you can think of, take, as leading by example will be the best move in your flirt game you can possibly have now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Breathe a sign of relief as your year is going to be kicking off to a new tune that will make you tingle from head to toe. Yes, expect something good to come into your life, stirring up the magic that you thought was long dead. Seems there is a second wind to something in your life that you didn’t expect and when it blows, it just might knock you off your feet.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Platonic feelings can turn a sharp angle right into your pants this week, so be ready to make some tough decisions. Of course, things may be moving so fast you might not be able to think, as the spontaneity will feel so enticing that you won’t even remember the words to resist. Of course, it may also be that you don’t know why you would want to.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Don’t be scared to brag about yourself, because the right ears will be out there and can help you along your way up the ladder of success. While you might be shy about sounding boastful and conceited, don’t. You are your best sale person now and if you can’t get up on the soapbox to support something you believe in, then why would anyone else bother?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Optimism is needed stat. Seems you will find yourself in charge of something bigger than the norm, and it can have you flipping out just a bit. However, this is your time to seize the spotlight and just go with the wackiest ideals you can drum up and lead with excitement. No matter what the outcome, your spirit will be infectious and for it, love, love, love.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You know who you are and nothing will change that. If someone wants to challenge you on it, seems they will be barking up the wrong tree, as now is your time when your inner power kicks in a big way and has you feeling your strength. After all, you are the ultimate sign of stubbornness, and standing your ground is your birthright. So, do it now and show everyone who’s the boss.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Seems there are greater powers out there in the universe and they are all going to be working their magic on you, as secrets and surprises pop out in bizarre ways to move you along the rainbow of love. Yes, crazy circumstances are underway this week and if you go with the flow, you will be feeling the bliss of romance in a way you never quite thought you could before.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Anything can happen now, so don’t discount a spontaneous trip to Las Vegas or something just as wacky and out of character. Yes, seems you will be slipping into a new skin as changes are coming and new emotions brought up, forcing you to put yourself on the line and reveal all your cards. The good news: all the cards you’re holding are aces!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Relax and let it all fall into place, as this is your week to set routines and get your organization on. Yes, work and all those little pesky details will be calling your name, but thank your lucky stars, because once you align your time, the universe’s kick back is a big dose of sexy loving that’ll excite and inspire the romantic side of you all over again.

What To Expect From Love In 2011

Let’s face it: The world is still a scary, unstable and uncertain place. What’s here today may very well be gone tomorrow, whether it be our 401ks, our jobs or our relationships. Last Thanksgiving, the world stood rapt in wonder at the trials and tribulations of Tiger Woods. As 2010 unfolded, our interest turned to disgust as we collectively pronounced “This Man IS NOT a role model.” We later watched with surprise as celebrity couple after celebrity couple, once seemingly happy, suddenly split. Doesn’t anybody stay together anymore? David and Courteney—not you guys, too? Keep reading »
