Catherine Strawn | April 18, 2008 - 12:30 pm

Mexico City just held its 2008 Sex & Entertainment Fair, which isn’t all that exciting in itself– we have sex-industry trade shows galore in the U.S. — however, three out of every four Mexican citizens are also Roman Catholic.

Sexpert Lindsay | April 16, 2008 - 1:00 pm

I’ve been dating a guy for about a month and a half. Every thing is great — similar outlooks on life, we share a lot of opinions on things etcetera — except for one thing. In that time period, during our above average sex life, I’ve climaxed once. ONCE. His technique is just fine, butMore »

First Time For Everything: Losing The V-Card

Natalie Krinsky | April 14, 2008 - 2:00 pm

I will forever associate my virginity with toads. No, this is no allusion to fairy tales, no delusions of princess-like grandeur. To my grave disappointment, at no point during my epic virginity-losing did the pimply faced amphibian straddling me morph into a dashing prince. The reason I associate my deflowering with toads is because instead… More »

STD Awareness Month has got us thinking about which STDs we consider the worst (besides AIDS, because, c’mon) — I vote for gonorrhea, personally. But then I wonder about dudes, and how much they really know about STDs. Do they know enough to vote for the worst? Their responses, after the jump. … More »

Catherine Strawn | April 11, 2008 - 5:00 pm

Sex is all about give and take. A study at the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that even though 475 U of M undergrads didn’t need to use sex to get provisions (that’s what parents’ bank accounts are for), many did use it to get other things — help with Econ 302,… More »

Amelia McDonell-Parry | April 9, 2008 - 4:15 pm

Oh my god, CRABS. Aren’t they beautiful?
1. Pubic lice aka crabs, do not have feet. They have CLAWS, hence the whole crab thing. Without feet they can’t actually walk across any surface, but they do sort of swing from hair to hair. Like a tiny, tiny Tarzan, if you will.
