Jill Scott Won’t Have Sex Until Date #5

“Now the minimum is until the fifth date. The whole celibacy thing, you could throw that out the window. That’s over. But I don’t have physical intimacy until at least the fifth date. So I can get to know who I’m dealing with and they can get to know me. And with my schedule, five dates can take three or four months! It just gives me a chance to get to know the person. So we talk on the phone pretty much every day or maybe we Skype or have a date and we have fun. I’m getting to know someone so I know if they’re crazy or not. I just don’t want to waste my time. I’m just trying to look at the mistakes that I made. I got so caught up in the flesh and I’m not even allowing someone to get to know the best parts of me. I’m a single girl in the world, but if I don’t have some standards then I can be making the same mistakes that I made in the past. I do want love. Genuine love. And sometimes sex can get in the way.”

Jill Scott is my single girl inspiration. We don’t need a man, we just need some standards! But waiting until the fifth date for a li’l something-something sounds hard, though. How do you do that? [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: The Ultimate Aphrodisiac

There’s a saying that goes “hunger is the best spice.” This is true. Without starvation as my salsa, I would never have been able to ingest all of those microwaveable burritos I ate when I was a wee street waif. You know the burritos I’m talking about: They come frozen in packs of 30 and they’re essentially toilet-paper tubes filled with beef caulking. This isn’t a saying anyone says, except for me, but it’s also true: “chastity is the best aphrodisiac.” Which is one reason I am totally pro-dry humping, a highly underrated sexual activity. A good, sweaty grind on a couch is a delightful tease of the wang-pong to come. Knowing that the other person can buck, grab, and slither in jeans is valuable carnal intel, the kind of insider information that turns an average hard-on into Excalibur. Putting off the inevitable for a week, a night or even an hour makes the resulting boner jams hotter, slicker and more gooseflesh-inducing. Keep reading »

Quotable: Why Lady Gaga Won’t Have Sex

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina … I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist. I’m drawn to bad romances. And my song is about whether I go after those or if they find me. I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”

Lady Gaga explains why she’s gone celibate. I’ve heard of people worrying that a photograph steals their soul, but this seems kind of far-fetched. And do we really think that she’s not sexing Luc Carl? [Vanity Fair via NY Daily News]
