In what is being touted as the biggest sex study since the release of the Kinsey Reports, Ogi Ogas—a former biodefense researcher—has found that when it comes to sexual preferences, we're all a lot kinkier than we'd care to admit.
YourTango.com and Zestra want to challenge you to do the near impossible: describe amazing sex in 10 words or less. I know, I know—how can one give justice to that sweat-filled moment the earth moved in such few syllables? That, dear readers, is the mega challenge but we do plan on rewarding you generously. The winner will receive $1, 000 and a trip to New York City. You have until May 23rd to shoot off your 10 words of brilliance in the comments section HERE.
Cohabiting is often thought of as a test of sorts—a chance to see if a relationship will work long-term before deciding to walk down the aisle. But even if a couple chooses not to take the plunge, entering Splitsville isn't any easier. Cohabiting breakups echo with that tough little d-word.
Almost every cohabiting couple fights about household chores. When faced with a dirty sink, most of us will resort to one of two things: nagging our guy until he gives in, or doing it ourselves even though it's definitely not our turn.

I've judged people by the books they're reading. This happens a lot while riding the NYC subway. Books are that rare life accessory that says a lot about who we are. If you're reading a popular emotional porno like Something Borrowed, it means that you believe in the power of hunky men who'll use their hospital residency off-hours painting your living room lavender while baking a soufflé. There was the dude I saw with the hipster beard, which is defined as a heavily shampooed and conditioned lumberjack beard that DJs Sunday nights, who was reading a dog-eared copy of Tolstoy's War and Peace. That communicated to me that he enjoyed iconic 19th Century literature about the merciless tumult of history, and also he drinks Jameson's watered down with too much ice and will sleep with you if you're a fashion urchin interested in lame literary poses.
The point is, I get it. You shouldn't fake it. It's bad to fake it. It's rude to fake it. But the truth is, there's an exception to every rule. And in the case of fakin' a big O, there are three.
