Does “Shush” Mean The Same Thing As “Shut Up”?

Let's be honest: every relationship has a moment—OK, a lot of moments—where one person just wants the other person to shut up. Whether it's in the middle of a fight or just during a stressful moment, the sound of the other person's voice is just bothering you. But saying "shut up," as we all learned…

Girl Talk: Do Fighting Styles Need To Be Balanced In Order For A Relationship To Survive?

I've always considered fighting to be a really important part of a relationship. Almost as important as how we f**k. Hear me out on this one. Just like screwing, I've always thought that there needed to be a balance, a compatibility in the way my dude and I verbally sparred. If we fought the same…

Would The “Beer Summit” Had Happened If Women Were Involved?

The whole nation got pretty excited yesterday for Obama's beer summit with Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard scholar, and Sgt. James Crowley, the Cambridge police officer who arrested him. But I couldn't help but wonder if it had been women involved instead of two men, if the nicey-nice photo op and beer summit chat…

Gina Carano Is The Female Face Of Mixed Martial Arts

Some girls sleep with teddy bears. Some girls like to watch mixed martial arts fighting. I would be the latter. What's MMA? A full contact sport that's a mix of boxing, wrestling, and martial arts.

The Good Fight

A new study from Lehigh University found that it doesn't matter how often mothers argue with their toddlers -- like so much in life, quality is more important than quantity.

If you’re pissed at your boyfriend, stop sulking and say something…or you might die. Preliminary results from a University of Michigan study show that couples in which both spouses suppress their anger at the other when unfairly attacked are twice as likely to die earlier than couples who were more communicative about their anger.
