According to a new study from Oakland University, women who have an abundance of men in their life— coworkers, family members, friends, etc.—have more sex with their boyfriends compared to couples in which the woman has less male influencers.
Researchers claim it all boils down to a little something called “sperm competition.” In actual biology, sperm are feisty little suckers who, if in a race, fight to the death in order to be the first to fertilize an egg. This competitive nature translates to the dating world, too, in that men have a physiological desire to fight off other men. Keep reading »
Contrary to popular belief, we’re all a little freaky when it comes to what we’re into between the sheets — new research shows that most sexual fantasies are way more common than you’d think.
A groundbreaking new study executed by researchers at the University of Montreal sought to scientifically define sexual deviance for the very first time. During the course of their investigation, researchers were surprised to discover that most sexual desires and proclivities are shockingly common, narrowing the field of what can be empirically constituted as sexual deviance. While on the whole most of us are more sexually similar than we ever imagined, the University of Montreal team, led by Professor Christian Joyal, found that men and women had different tendencies when it came to dreaming up desires.

A wise man once said, “The only thing better than bacon is sex.” Well, not really, but he was thinking it.
Since safe sex is a good thing, and so is bacon, the good folks at J&D’s Foods—creators of virtually bacon everything—decided to combine them. And so it goes: I present to you, the bacon condom, which is an actual and real thing that you can wear during the act of sexual intercourse. Read more on The Gloss…
In a Sunday interview with The Guardian, Jamie Dornan informed the world that there will be exactly zero penis shots in “50 Shades Of Grey.” Or to use the actor’s parlance, Dornan’s “todger” won’t appear. The news struck fans with shock rivaled only by the realization that the pinot is running low: What good is a movie about sexy sex without any male nudity? That collective reaction encompasses the way E.L. James has made embracing expression of sexuality acceptable.

Lena Dunham’s memoir, Not that Kind of Girl was published at the end of September, and in the last two days, the internet has basically exploded around its contents. Dunham’s narration of her sexual behavior towards her younger sister, Grace, has resulted in many demanding that Planned Parenthood “#dropdunham” as its celebrity spokesperson. And then there’s the notable fissure that Dunham’s very presence has caused in feminist communities: Is she a sexual predator hiding behind quirk and white privilege? Is Grace Dunham, actress, poet and a supporter of her sister’s work (she’s traveling with Lena on her book tour a victim of sexual abuse, in spite of the fact that she doesn’t identify herself as one? Is everyone defending Dunham against the accusation that she’s a predator a child abuse apologist?
In response to the chaos, Nona Willis Aronowitz and Collier Meyerson created Those Kinds of Girls, a Tumblr where women can post stories of childhood sexual experiences – “strange shit” they did, or that was done to them, when experimentation was everything and boundaries were not yet a thing they, and their peers, were cognizant of. I talked to Willis Aronowitz, the newest editor at Talking Points Memo, and Meyerson, a web producer at All in With Chris Hayes, about the motivation behind the Tumblr, policing women’s experiences, and the stories we’re afraid to tell.
