Recently, I was asked for advice from a beautiful twenty-something young woman who is helping me to rediscover fitness in my life. She needed some dating advice and I was flattered that she thought I could offer some helpful information to her. After all, it has been awhile since I was twenty-something....more
Well, it seems like our previous World Cup sex article was a bit premature. A new study is shutting down the debate on whether sex has an effect on a team's chances to win it all for their country.
Every time I passed the sleazy strip club with the neon “Girls Girls Girls” sign, I wanted to go in. I don’t really know why. I’m heterosexual (other than my small thing for Megan Fox). And I know it’s not politically correct to go to the strip club (I was raised with that “Free to be You and Me” album just like you were). And yet? Something was compelling me.
I guess I just wanted to see me some titties, OK?
How do five years fly by quickly?When you have a partner in life who loves you completely, that you love as much in return.When you have someone beside you giving you support when the rough times happen....more
In 2012, 30.4 percent of Americans over 25 had at least a bachelor's degree and 10.9 percent had a graduate degree. That's a big chunk of the country, but you wouldn't know so many of us have been to university given the sort of suggestions floating around the internet about what to put into a care package for our recent high school grads who are heading off to get their degrees. My version of a good care package is one that equips a young adult to make the right decision as often as possible....more
Somewhere around 2009, I decided to grow my hair out. To be 100% honest, as I always am on this blog, I decided to grow my hair because I thought I would be getting married in the next few years. Boy, did I miss the mark on that one (but found my Mark three years later ... wow, that was a cheesy pun)....more
July 6 has been dubbed "International Kissing Day", and all around the world, people celebrate it by puckering up with loved ones (or, face it, whoever is at the theatre with you, 90 minutes into the newest Rom-Com)....more
Image: Jannino Kemprung via FlickrYes, peri-menopause is making me a changed woman. It is doing things to my body and brain that I never knew it could. It is also changing my house. How? Well, it's because menopause is transforming the bedroom into a brothel. But, not in the way you would think....more
The thing about growing up as an only child is you don’t have any siblings to give you the nitty-gritty details about sex. Sure, my mom kindly presented me with an illustrated edition of “Where Did I Come From?” when I was in elementary school, but even then the booked struck me as wholesome and G-rated. To get the real dirt, I had just two options: A) Alyssa, the delinquent with flaming red hair who lived across the street; or B) HBO’s Sex and the City....more
It’s that time of year again. Many of us are starting to watch those calories a little more closely, the gym clothes are getting more wear, and swimsuit shopping is hovering over us like a big ol’ storm cloud. A cookie is no longer just a cookie-- it is an evil tool of seduction aimed at keeping us from fitting into our favorite sundresses. But empty calories can show up in other areas of our lives that have nothing to do with baked goods....more
