Poll: Would You Share Your Secrets On New Confessional App ‘Secret’?

A new, anonymous confessional app called 'Secret' is picking up steam in the social world, and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Poll: Have You Ever Stalked An Ex’s New Flame?

Let's be honest... that awkward moment when we find out our ex is dating someone new is usually pretty unpleasant. And for some, it triggers an immediate response in the brain, causing us to stop thinking completely and walk over to the computer to Google the new…

Poll: Is Liveblogging A Home Birth Intriguing Or Appalling?

Just when you thought your friends were oversharing on Facebook and Twitter, someone else comes along and puts them to shame in the TMI department. Exhibit A: New mom, Ruth Iorio. In case you haven’t heard, Ruth decided to liveblog her home birth, giving her followers (and the world) a…

Poll: Which Girl Crush Would You Rather Meet Under The Mistletoe, Jennifer Lawrence Or Beyonce?

I don’t know about you, but 2013 was The Year of My Flourishing Girl Crushes. First, I fell even more in love with Jennifer Lawrence, whose quirky, witty sense of humor and righteous self-confidence, on top of her kickass performance in “Catching Fire,” left me…

Poll: Have You Ever Made A Marriage Pact With A Friend?

Last week, I was talking to one of my best guy friends about our various relationship dilemmas when he assured me, "It's okay, Kate. All of this nonsense will be over once we turn 29, which is rapidly approaching." He was referring to our marriage pact: an agreement we made when we were 18 that…

With Thanksgivukkah quickly approaching, it's time we put the turkey and menorah talk aside for a moment to focus on something super important: your sexytime situation. For those of you who are coupled up, the holidays often mean traveling with your significant other, either to visit your family or theirs, to enjoy the festivities together.

Poll: Would You Marry Someone Who Can’t Make You Orgasm?

Yesterday, our very own Amelia wrote an article about her inability to orgasm from almost all of her sexual partners—with the exception of one. However, despite the fact that she’s frequently unable to reach the big “O” when partnered, she still finds sex satisfying. But what if that partner were someone you wanted…

Poll: Would You Ever Participate In A Sex Study?

Don’t expect to get a hold of me any Sunday night from now until the end of the year, because I’ll be watching “Masters of Sex,” and your girl doesn’t like to be interrupted. Ever since my roommate coerced the cable company to give us free Showtime for a year because our cable box wa…

Poll: Should There Be An Age Limit For Mixed Martial Arts Fighting?

This morning, I happened to stumble upon a CNN photo gallery of children partaking in a MMA fight … in a cage. Participants as young as age five are allowed to compete in the Thunderdome, where “they punch, kick, tackle and choke each other,” with their hands and feet. I asked myself, “How…

Poll: Should Parents Face Arrest If Their Child Is A Bully?

A riveting op-ed by KJ Dell'Antonia in The New York Times yesterday still has me thinking. The piece, questioning whether or not parents should face criminal charges if their teenager is a bully, describes the recent suicide of a teenage girl who was endlessly harassed and cyber bullied by two of her female classmates.

Poll: Would You Help Pay For Your Own Engagement Ring?

Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know. Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the increasing frequency…

Poll: Are First Dates At Home Cozy Or Creepy?

Let's face it: the economy sucks. And unfortunately, not having much money can sometimes get in the way of things ... including dating. As a single gal, I'm hearing of more and more people who have opted to forgo the traditional first-date dinner at a restaurant in favor of an evening at home getting to…

Poll: Can Selfish People Do Selfless Things?

After live tweeting through last night's season premiere of "Nashville," and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really ... we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them. Or,…

Poll: Would You Rather Be Single Forever Or With Someone You’re Meh About?

Happy National Singles Week! In honor of the festive occasion, I’d like to discuss people who SETTLE. I’ve always been told not to settle for anyone who’s less than perfect for me, but for some, singlehood is seemingly not an option. So many people I know have chosen to be with, and in some cases,…

Poll: Is The C-Word No Big Deal Or Totally Offensive?

Ohh, the C-word. We've had many discussions about how it's used, why it's used, where it came from and whether or not it's offensive, but this morning, one Miley Cyrus helped propel the word "cunt" back into the spotlight. Just called this paparazzi a CUNT. So before he makes breaking "news" out if it.

Poll: Was Miley’s VMAs Performance All In Good Fun Or Totally Offensive?

Let’s take a minute to talk about Miley Cyrus, shall we? With a performance so uncomfortable it rivals that of the bride who grinded down the aisle to Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” Miley’s jaw-dropping VMAs stunt left parents covering the eyes of their children and grown adults glaring with disapproval as they watched i…

Poll: Does Having An Affair With A Married Man/Woman Make You A “Bad Person”?

Let’s talk about Sydney Leathers for a minute. Sydney Leathers is a LOT of things, but is she a bad person? This woman has made some choices that I don’t agree with— carrying on a sexting affair with a very married Anthony Weiner (ew), capitalizing on her newfound attention by releasing a hardcore masturbatio…
