Once you decide to embark on a testosterone-free journey, there are a few things you shouldn’t do. Keep reading »

How Do You Know When You’re Ready To Vacation Together?

It would be hard to find a more fitting pair than of sex and travel. Here, one adventurer, who has kissed an uncounted number of men who don’t share her zip code, shares her experience combining the two through more than 30 countries.

Having a boyfriend you’ve been on vacation with isn’t the same thing as having a boyfriend. Vacationing together is a serious step, and you need to proceed with caution. It’s kind of like meeting the parents, a move nobody makes on the first date. There’s more to consider than the cost of plane tickets. Of course, a few trial sleepovers can help, but there are other things to consider… Keep reading »

Pregnant Women Love Getting Pampered

With massages, special yoga sessions, and concierge services available to them, being a pregnant lady in this day and age doesn’t seem like it would be that bad. And mothers-to-be are catching on that it’s wise to pamper yourself while you’re pregnant, because once you give birth, there will be no pampering, only sleepless nights. Nearly 60 percent of couples surveyed said they went on a “babymoon” before becoming parents, according to a 2005 online poll sponsored by Liberty Travel and BabyCenter.com, and some food-delivery services bring fresh meals to pregnant women’s doorsteps to ensure they’re getting the nutrients they need without having to weave a cart through a crowded grocery store. However, none of this pre-baby pampering seems to help once the baby comes out: “The arrival of a baby is a shock to anyone’s system, regardless of the amount of pampering they engaged in pre-baby,” psychologist Deborah Roth Ledley said.

The Daily Squeeze: SATC Vacays, Sex Toys, And Housing In Paris

  • A travel company plans to take advantage of the May 30 release of the Sex and the City movie by offering theme vacations, which will cost $15,000 to $24,000 for a four-day tour. Save your money, people. If you want to go to Saks, Barneys, Tiffany, and Patricia Field, we’d be happy to give you the addresses. [Reuters]

  • Be careful what sex toys you purchase, because the industry is largely unregulated (ever wonder why it says “novelty product” on the packaging?) Some materials, like plastic or latex, are porous and can’t be properly sterilized. Plus, phthalates, a chemical often added to plastics to make them more flexible, can leach out over time and be absorbed through the body’s mucus membranes. Stick to silicone.

    Feature: The Five Relationship Hurdles Faced When On Vacation

    For many couples that’ve been going steady for a while, the first big relationship hurdle occurs when they go on vacation together. Chuck Thompson, author of the fantastically hilarious book Smile When You’re Lying, says that there are five very important breakthroughs that occur when taking a vacay together. “Traveling together is really practice for living together or even being married,” he says. “It’s the first time you’re going to be in each others constant company for, let’s say, a week straight. That is much different than seeing someone three times a week or even seeing them everyday for a few hours. It’s a real test of compatibility.” The five travel-induced hurdles that will make or break your relationship, after the jump. Keep reading »
