“Wait, are you upset with me? Yes, I slept with him. No, we’re not dating. Well, because I wanted to, and from all indications, I thought you were definitely on board.”
While this sounds like one side of a difficult discussion with a pushy girlfriend, it was actually the internal dialog I used to have with my vagina. Apparently she wanted me to have one serious boyfriend. Quaint, but not my plan. As 31-year-olds entering our sexual prime, the vagina and I both wanted sex in the city, but how did I end up a Samantha with a vagina who was acting like a total Charlotte? Keep reading »
I like boobs. I’m a straight woman, but really, who doesn’t appreciate them? Robots. Reptiles. Sauron. That’s about it. And I’m not even positive about Sauron. He might have, at some point, before he was all disembodied. Breasts are awesome. As feminist writer Gail Collins said in her New York Times piece, “Everybody likes breasts — infants, adults, women, men. Really, it’s America’s most popular body part.” But sometimes it seems like we only get to talk about how awesome certain kinds of boobs are. The ones that are bold, perfectly round, Sports Illustrated-style, belonging to Christina Hendricks, full, plush, generous, prominent, and just generally big.
Those words do not describe my breasts, but I like mine anyway. For some reason, I never learned to be ashamed. I listened to my brothers (and the world) make enthusiastic comments about well-endowed women, and, although I had a few moments of “Seriously, God? Where’s the rest of my chest? YOU FORGOT SOMETHING,” I grew up generally liking the way I looked. It could be that there’s something wrong with my brain. But I think it’s more likely that small boobs are pretty great. Here’s why.

Give the lady the wrong Valentine’s Day gift and she won’t be so excited to open her heart (or her legs) for you. Even if you do love her “from top to bottom,” we urge you not to buy her this roll of toilet paper. Here are some more gifts that are not going to get her romantic juices flowing. [Just Paper Roses]
A while back I was dating a guy that I was really into. In hindsight, the relationship was ridiculous… but I was transported by what seemed like some of the best between-the-sheets I’ve ever had, and I besotted myself into some idea that we had a future. So I was devastated when I was dumped, over email. (Yep, even in middle age, some men still do that.)
I went through the usual shock and awe, aided by piles of tissue and a hive of caring girlfriends. Moving through the stages of grieving, I saw him clearly for the incapable slouch that he was. But what kept nagging at me was how much I was going to miss that naked tango. Read more…
Kim Kardashian’s mom Kris Jenner has signed on to help promote a new sex oil. Is that Mario Lopez checking out the product on the set of “Extra”?
The 56-year-old reality TV star will be the face for Zestra Essential Arousal Oils. Read more…
Watch out for the big girls! A survey of 2,500 adults revealed some surprising statistics about the kind of underwear we buy depending on our size. Size 8 women are more likely to wear granny panties (referred to as “sensible cotton pants” in the study), while size 14 ladies are more likely to go commando. And those size 16 gals? Well, they’re busy “working it” in sexier matching sets. When it comes to making underwear choices, it seems like big girls do it better or at least “sexier.” Keep reading »
Yes, dating and relationships can be hard, but just be glad you’re not a porcupine. Or a dolphin. Or any of the other animals we’ve found with strange and somewhat disturbing mating rituals. At least your boyfriend doesn’t DIE when he has sex with you, like the honey bee, or try to insert his penis into your abdomen, like the bed bug. Click through to read all about it. Keep reading »
Sure, it’s the holiday of “love,” but Valentine’s Day-themed sex toys are just too much. We’re not trying to discourage anyone from getting it on this V-Day, but I think even Cupid wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a Valentine’s Day c**k sock. God bless the Tuggie in all of its many incarnations (I’m looking forward to the Easter Tuggie … I hope it’s a bunny), but it is completely unnecessary for a night of steamy lovemaking. Click through to see some more totally unnecessary V-Day sex toys. Regular ones do the trick just fine. [Sensually Yours] Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week begins today, and we can’t wait to see what memorable moments and fresh looks will come out of this season’s showing. And while the fashion industry’s history is full of important landmarks, it seems the ones that stand out the most have to do with controversy, pushing boundaries, and sex. In honor of NYFW, let’s look at the most scandalous sex-related moments in fashion’s history now! Read more…
