I was the first in my high school crew of gals to do pretty much everything: kiss a boy, get felt up, get naked, get fingered (in a movie theater), receive oral sex, give oral sex, and finally, have sex (on the floor of my high school boyfriend’s parents’ basement). A new world of experiences was opening up, and I took on my role as trailblazer with fervor, drive and anthropological scrutiny.

Why Women Really Fake Orgasms

According to a new study done at Temple University, about 60 percent of women have faked it at some point. An orgasm that is.

How Not To Respond When Your Partner Doesn’t Hit The Big O

“You didn’t finish, did you?” he asked.
