Friends with benefits often get a bum rap. But I am happy to report that they are acing it in the condom department. An online survey, the results of which were published in the Journal of Sex Research, found that FWBs are the most likely to use condoms during sex. Of the 376 mostly twentysomethings who were questioned, about half said they were involved in a FWB situation. On the downside, the FWBers reported being less sexually satisfied and less able to discuss their sexual desires with their partners. No surprise there. Keep reading »

What Would’ve Happened If These Rom-Com Heroines Had Chosen Themselves Instead Of Prince Charming

Having been a fan of ”Breaking Upwards,” the heartbreaking debut film from co-writers/co-stars/cohabitators Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones, I couldn’t wait to see the couple’s follow up, ”Lola Versus.” Starring mumblecore goddess Greta Gerwig, ”Lola Versus” tells the story of a woman on the verge of 30 who’s left understandibly devastated after her fiance dumps her three weeks before the wedding. However, after salty food and casual sex doesn’t help fill the void, she must figure out how to move on with her life without sliding back into the arms of her self-centered ex.

In rom-coms such as this, it’s easy to pin the leading lady’s happiness on whether or not she ends up with a guy at the end of the film, which got me thinking: What if some of our most adored romantic comedies had ended up with different outcomes? More specifically, what would’ve happened if these “meet cute”-ies didn’t opt for the embrace of Prince Charming? From Vivian Ward in ”Pretty Woman” to Jamie Rellis in ”Friends With Benefits,” let’s spitball about what would’ve happened after the credits rolled if these leading ladies had chosen themselves over whatever handsome—but probably jerky—suitor.

You call yourselves “just friends,” but you know as well as everyone else does that you’re more than that. You know where he is when he’s not with you. You spend your weekends together. You travel together. You go to Ikea together. You say “we” a lot, and all of your other friends know who “we” is.

You are dating without benefits. You are serving all of the functions of life partner for each other, without, you know, any of the good stuff — romance, commitment, and sex. (Though any of these elements might sneak in and out of the relationship on occasion, usually aided by alcohol.) You are a substitute boyfriend or girlfriend, and this, my friend, could drag on for years, especially if neither of you meets someone else — someone you can call your actual boyfriend or girlfriend. This is not great news. Keep reading »

Mila Kunis Sasses A Reporter — In Russian


The lovely Mila Kunis lived in Ukraine until she was seven years olds and, as a result, speaks fluent Russian. So, at a recent press event in Moscow for her new movie “Friends With Benefits,” Kunis happily took questions in her native tongue. But she was not thrilled when one reporter asked co-star Justin Timberlake why he bothered choosing movies over music. In the clip above, Kunis snaps back at the reporter, “Why movies? Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?” The crowd erupts in cheers and Timberlake is bewildered. Keep reading »
