Before they make love tonight (and we're assuming they will), Barack Obama will have some choice words for his wife, and we can only imagine what they are. Actually, we have imagined them. Here are the five things Barack might say to Michelle as they get ready to do the nasty.
Lemondrop's Bediquette column today discusses the comfort—and horror—of familiarity. According to a new poll, romance lasts exactly two years, six months and 25 days, after which time couples stop trying and start leaving the toilet seat up (79% of men married 10+ years do this), hording the remote (75% of both sexes wouldn't relinquish control when asked nicely) and forgetting their wedding anniversary (actually, this happens by the third year of marriage to 83% of couples).
On Monday, Yahoo! News reported a strong link between teen pregnancies and sexy TV shows. The article refers to a groundbreaking study that was released in the November issue of Pediatrics and explains the connection between teenagers and the racy television shows that they watch. Can anyone take a wild guess at what super-sexy shows the study is alluding to? Here's a hint: sex is actually in the title. Obviously Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, Samantha Jones, and Charlotte York are four fictional characters, but they are all a part of a very realistic, controversial show--a show that is now on cable TV every night. Though it is censored, Sex and the City revolves around, well, sex. Therefore, when flipping through the channels, an impressionable teenager may just stop surfing when he/she stumbles upon an almost fully nude Samantha receiving oral sex.
I realized Sarah Palin is not-too-bright when she actually believed the prank caller, "Monsieur Sarkozy," when he said his wife was quite jealous that he was calling her. Why is this so hard to believe? The French President's new wife is Carla Bruni, one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Recycled sex, Essex girls do it without condoms, some dudes don't like oral, a mother's weight gain translates to bigger babies, both presidential candidates aren't down with gay marriage, Mad Men teaches people how to date like a man, an Indian man wants an annulment on grounds of his wife's acne, Suze Orman wants you to have separate accounts, and wedding gowns for women in the military.
With the overwhelming number of preferences out there, it's even more vital that we learn to ask about a lover's likes and dislikes. After all, you wouldn't walk into a Baskin Robbins hoping to get lucky and pick your partner's one favorite out of 31 flavors, would you? Conflicting opinions abound on what warrants good oral sex, and Daily Bedpost's caught some on video. Watch and learn!
Saturday Night Live this weekend had a few quite bright points. One of them was Grady Wilson. Kenan Thompson's character wants to help save your marriage. And he introduces several techniques help bring the fire back.
When you get down to basics, marriage is about money. Pounding hearts, sweet nothings and lazy Sundays in bed are all well and good, but legally, a marriage creates one financial entity where there once were two. So it makes sense that the economic downturn would affect all stages of marriage, from the beginnings (the wedding) to the end (divorce). The New York Times proves this point in two style pieces this weekend.
Zack and Miri Make a Porno: sweet love story of two aimless twentysomethings drawn together by a low-budget porno -- or a meditation on the difference between f*cking and making love?
A link between teen sex and racy TV, diabetes and sexual dysfunction, sexual dysfunction in women, big-boned gals do it more often, a link between depression and internet sex, trading drugs for sex (and vice versa), best places to have sex, the Blue Angels get frisky, May-December romance movies, and weddings for cheap.
