The 5 Weirdest Reasons We Have Sex (According To Science)

Ever since Darwin popped off his big theory of evolution, we've all kind of presumed that everything we do -- the way we eat, the mates we choose, the way we purposely mispronounce "indubitably" for laughs, everything -- is ultimately tied to one goal: continuing the species.

You Won’t Believe What Women Will Do Under Their Desks At Work

I once read a survey that claimed that a third of American women won't leave the house without their makeup on. As a mother who is just happy to have a kid whose teeth are brushed and clothes on when it's time to get going most days, I'm going to be honest with you. The luxury of fixing…
