8 Condom Commandments

Imagine this: You’re a young, single woman out in the jungle that is the urban dating world. One fine night, you meet a good-looking guy at a holiday party. “Hello,” he says, as you push your way through the crowd toward the makeshift bar. “Do I know you?” you ask. “No, but I’d like to get you another drink,” he offers. You are charmed. “Of course — but be careful. They’re pouring heavy tonight,” you warn. He laughs. Before long, you and the young man are conversing while throwing back stiff vodka tonics. Soon, you are making out. Why not, right? He invites you home with him. You agree. You are pleasantly surprised when you arrive at his swanky, apartment, and it’s clean! Before long, you’re both naked. Then, he utters some alarming words. “Do you have a condom?” he asks. “Um … Not on me. Don’t you have one?” you ask. “Can we skip the condom? I prefer sex without a condom. I have great self-control,” he explains. Keep reading »

We can’t stand each other but we love sleeping together. Of course now that the divorce is final, I really want to get back out on the dating scene and start meeting new men. Do I need to permanently boot my booty call before meeting new guys or can I keep my little sugar on the side?

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Wants To Hook Up With Someone Else”

My boyfriend and I are both 20 and have been in a long-distance relationship for almost the past year. We have an amazing chemistry and connect in a way I didn’t think possible. The issue is, although he has now had a couple long-term relationships, he’s never had a random hook-up. My first semester freshman year, I made out with a lot of guys at frat parties and what not, and he knows that. This past June, he started talking about how he wished he had that experience, too, but we talked about it, and moved on. Unfortunately, he’s talking about it again. He says that he thinks I’m the one and I honestly feel the same way, but he also says that it’s bothering him that he’s missed out on something. I know it’s only going to stay bottled up inside for him and then explode at random times. I suggested taking a break so he could have whatever he wants and then after, like, six months we could get back together, but he said he doesn’t believe in breaks ’cause it would just hurt me to have him mess around like that. I know he doesn’t want to have sex with anyone else — just a random girl to make out with. I know that one encounter will set his mind at ease, but I’m at odds as to what to do about this. — Not a Random Girl

Mind Of Man: What Men Want For Christmas

Men would rather give than receive. Keep this in mind, ladies, as you freak out, panic, and wring your hands over what to get your beloved for Christmas. Around this time of year, I offer my services to various female friends who are all on maddening quests to buy their boyfriends and their husbands the perfect gift. These women are driven partly out of love, and partly because they feel they have to top the gifts their husbands and boyfriends have gotten them in the past. These gifts were, of course, exactly what the women wanted, and they were either cleverly hidden or extravagantly wrapped.

The secret to buying a woman the “perfect” gift, of course, is simple. You listen to her. Keep reading »
