Dakota Fanning's Cosmopolitan cover

Dakota Fanning’s Cosmopolitan cover raised some eyebrows because the “Twilight” actress is 17-years-old and we all know your hymen magically becomes open for business at midnight on your 18th birthday. Presumably, Cosmo‘s ad sales department knew this fact, which is why it sent out a sample mock-up cover to advertisers scrubbed of all the naughty stuff. The sample mock-up cover (at left) received by the NY Observer newspaper promises articles on “Spring Clothes, Hair, Nails” and how to “Feel Close After A Fight.” The actual cover (at right)? Sex! Vaginas! More sex! I guess the articled entitled “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” wasn’t deemed advertiser-friendly. I can’t imagine why. [New York Observer] Keep reading »

Bad Sexual Chemisty Is A Relationship Dealbreaker

Many women (and some men, too) fall in love and think they can “fix” the person they are with. He may have bad hair, she may smoke, he could snore at night or wear the wrong clothing. Most of these problems can be dealt with, but there some that cannot and sexual chemistry is the biggest.

A recent letter to The Daily Mail relationship expert asks this very question: Can a relationship survive when you have everything in place but the good sex? The answer, sadly, is a resounding no. If the sex is bad, the relationship must end. 

Oh I know. I can hear the groaning from here. But the answer holds firm. Try as you might to believe otherwise, sexual chemistry is an absolute dealbreaker in a relationship. It may seem shallow, but it really is not. Read more…

Today’s Lady News: Sex Gets Better With Age, Study Finds

  • Women’s enjoyment of sex increases with age, according to a new study in The American Journal of Medicine. Even though women ages 40 and up reported a lower overall sex drive, their arousal and orgasms were better. The study looked at 806 women who are part of an ongoing 40-year research project near San Diego, California. Even though it’s good to hear that the enjoyment of sex improved with age, I’m pretty happy that the highest frequency of arousal was reported by the youngest women in the study! [USA Today]
  • Mississippi’s Governor Haley Barbour has pardoned a man who shot his wife, Tammy, in the head in 1993 while she held the couple’s two-month-old child. David Glenn Gatlin also shot a family friend, who survived the shooting. Gatlin was given a life sentence for murder in 1994. Gatlin became a “trustee inmate” working at the Governor’s Mansion since 2009, which is apparently what prompted Gov. Barbour to pardon him. [Clarion Ledger, WLBT]

Penis Tattoo Leaves Man With Permanent Boner

Things that we suspected might be a bad idea: getting your penis tattooed. A 21-year-old Iranian man was left with a permanent semi-boner after getting the phrase “good luck on your journeys” along with his girlfriend’s initials inked on his peen in Persian. After several days of post-tat healing, his pain began to subside, but his woody didn’t. According the to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the tattoo artist “punctured too-deep holes that damaged vessels in his penis” causing blood pooling that resulted in the perma-rection. Since the guy is still able to achieve full erections and have sex, he’s more or less okay with his always hard d**k. Meanwhile, doctors are taking this opportunity to remind us that penile tattooing is dumb. But we already suspected as much. Maybe he should get the tattoo changed to read, “Good luck with your permanent erection.” [MSNBC]

Enthusiastic Consent. I’m a fan. For any of you not in the know, Enthusiastic Consent is a way to make sure that yes really means yes and no means no, during sex. It’s an ongoing conversation during sex itself, where partners listen to all manner of cues to make sure that what’s happening is really wanted. Scarleteen has a good definition here. Enthusiastic Consent is a term designed to get people talking to each other about sex so that when the sex happens, everyone is on the same page, happy and in alignment with what’s supposed to happen.
