For the new year, women go to extreme lengths to ditch old baggage: we clean out our closets, buy new “essential” wardrobe pieces, start looking for new jobs, vow to lose a few pounds or even get full-on makeovers. But sometimes our “special someone” is the real dead weight that should be tossed out. Here are 10 signs that Mr. Right has become so wrong. Keep reading »

It was good, it was bad — but it certainly wasn’t boring. From sex scandals to oddball marriages, sham weddings to sexting implosions, 2011 had something for everyone. Read on to see our most shocking celebrity breakdowns, political scandals and most surprising moments of the year. And tell us what you think the biggest scandal of the year was.
One of the most important reasons to watch copious amounts of reality TV is to learn vicariously from your favorite characters. I watch so I can determine how not to live my life. Or, very rarely, how to. Click on through to see some valuable lessons learned from reality TV in 2011.
New Year’s Eve is completely overwrought with expectation, isn’t it? Will your party be hip-hop-video-caliber awesome? Who are you going to kiss? And most importantly, are you wearing enough sequins?
It’s enough to make a girl throw up her hands and stay in watching re-runs of “Breaking Bad.”
Never fear, friend. We’ve got seven ideas for totally different ways to ring in 2012. Keep reading »
There are so many ways to measure a year. As the musical “Rent” asks, how do you measure in 525,600 minutes? In daylights? In sunsets? In midnights? In cups of coffee? I prefer to measure it in farts. As it turns out, 2011 was a good year for gas. Click through to recall some of the best fart moments of the year.
Guess who I’m not hopping into to bed with? The guy who just moments ago confessed that his dream in life is to “live in a yurt.” No offense to his dream, but my dream is never to go camping, never to interface with wild animals, and never go without running water or poop in a hole unless emergency dictates it. Just moments earlier, I was digging this fellow and now all I can see when I look at him is a vision of what he will look after a few years in his yurt — a little bit like Tom Hanks in “Castaway.” “No thanks,” says my vagina. After the jump, some things that guys have said to us that killed our attraction to them in two seconds flat. Keep reading »
It’s holiday time and you know what that means: home-wreckers are sharpening their claws and any other WMD (weapon of marriage destruction) that they can. Hey, it’s the loneliest time of year – but that doesn’t mean she can’t use your guy to keep her warm through January!
Seriously, it’s no coincidence that this time of year can prove to be dangerous to your relationship if you’re not mindful of potential threats to it. Experts talk about December as a toxic time of year for monogamous relationships and the milquetoast men behind them. “The holidays are the time when ‘husband stealers’ go on the prowl — especially at office parties,” says Dr. Carole Lieberman, a psychiatrist at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute who’s written the book on home-wreckers – literally. Her latest award-winning manifesto, Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, details 12 types of “bad girls,” including the “husband stealer” aka the home-wrecker.
So, how can you tell if one of these home-wrecking types has your relationship in her crosshairs and, if so, that your man has let it happen? Here are eight signs you’ve been home-wrecked, after the jump! Keep reading »
Every holiday season, every publication imaginable puts together gift guides filled with shopping ideas for the festively confused. It has always surprised me that more gift guides for husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends, don’t suggest sexy goodies. Lots of sex toys are inexpensive (under $40, with lots of them under $30) and unlike a hand lotion or yet another scented candle, they can last for years. I would not recommend that a sex toy be your only gift to a partner this year, as gifts like this can be seen more as “for us” rather than “for you.” But if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or an extra something-something to go with another gift, I say go sexy!
And it should go without saying this slideshow is NSFW, although none of the images are explicit. Enjoy!
