How To Teach Teenaged Girls About Masturbation

Why should parents teach teen girls about masturbation? It can save their future marriage or at least help them have fun on the way.

This too shall pass... again...

What the Ladies of Vivid Radio Taught Me

You may remember that I got a new (well, used) car earlier this year, and with that car I got 3 free months of Sirius XM, which included the Vivid radio station.

I guess things shouldn't surprise me since new members are always joining (and there are douches everywhere), but they do....more

The sensation of sexual desire (being turned on) is more highly rated and sought after in studies than the actual physical experiences during sex, for both men and women. We love to feel horny! But what makes men and women feel turned on differs....more
Thanks!  It made total sense to me when I read the science. Watching someone who is thinking ...more

Hover Over Post

We all do this to some degree. We take a picture or two then hmm and ha about whether to post to our profile or send to someone. That is hard enough, but what about us bloggers? What we post is available for the whole world to see should they be so inclined. ...more
