I’m of the last generation to learn about sex without the help of the internet. While I was spared the misinformation my pre-teen mind would’ve encountered in her furtive Google searches, I also missed out on the comprehensive dialogue that today’s young people can access. Which might not be so bad, if I’d had access to any other trustworthy way to learn about sexuality. Keep reading »
Porn: whether you love it, hate it, or feel indifferent, you can’t deny it influences people just like any other form of media. Generally, “Think of the children!” hand-wringing is something I ignore because I think it can get really overblown. But a recent report on how exposure to porn affects young boys is a brash wake-up call that not worrying about their exposure is to their, and our, detriment. Keep reading »
Having sex while Aunt Flo is in town is definitely a love it or hate it situation — friends and fellow bloggers Twanna Hines and Desiree Moodie were on opposite sides of the fence on the subject and asked to argue their viewpoints for The Frisky. Read both of their extremely convincing arguments after the jump (who knew there were so many benefits to period sex?!), then tell us what you think in the comments. Keep reading »

A new, controversial report claims the increase in carpal tunnel syndrome cases in Britain is the result of too much sex. Repetitive movements and extending full body weight to the wrists during lovemaking seems to be related to the most common wrist ailment in the U.K., which affects one person in 20. The symptoms include numbness and pain from trapped nerves. Although the exact cause of the syndrome isn’t exactly known, doctors often attribute it to keyboard or mouse use and prolonged use of vibrating hand tools (no, not those vibrating hand tools). But, according to this new research, the increases in carpal tunnel sufferers coincided with the launch of Viagra and other erectile dysfunction treatments in the late ’90s. Of course, many people also started using computers continuously throughout the day around this time also. But one researcher maintains that sex is the leading cause of the syndrome because it’s the only widespread activity that requires both hands at the same time. So it sounds like this is the perfect excuse to switch positions and put old standbys like missionary and doggy style to rest for a bit. [The Sun] Keep reading »

This Sunday marks six months since I got hitched, and I hope this doesn’t sound all braggy, but man, these last few months have been good ones. I love being married! Even more than I thought I would. That’s not to say I didn’t imagine it would be great; I just wasn’t expecting it to be so much better than simply living together, like we had been for a year and half before we tied the knot. For us, there’s a deeper commitment now, a stability that wasn’t quite as acute before; we’re closer, we’re family now. But with all that comes added pressure and expectations. And nowhere is that more apparent for me than our sex life. Keep reading »
Anna Kendrick really loved Ryan Gosling’s performance in the movie “Gangster Squad.” More specifically, his performance made her love herself.
“Ugh – NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered ‘inappropriate,’” she Tweeted.
We suspect she was joking, but we can’t blame her if she wasn’t. Obviously, Ryan Gosling is a very popular figure in peoples’ spank banks over here. [Daily Mail UK]
Anna Kendrick is hardly the only celeb to discuss diddling. Woody Allen and Dudley Moore have some of the more famous and funny quotes about jerking off, but some more recent stars have mouthed off about self-love too. Keep clicking to find out who …
