9 Sex Tips From Construction Workers

Our office building is currently getting not one, but two new store fronts. So, everyday, I've got to walk past roughly a dozen sweaty studs handling their equipment. Am I the luckiest girl in the world or what?! Plus, despite how often they see me, they always manage to find new ways to describe my bang-ability on the daily. And I love them for it. (Although, I have yet to nail a handyman. Sigh.) But I have picked up a few sexy tips just from having all those dirty men around. I'm going to tell you what I know, but please help me pray that the Mexican restaurant and coffee shop stay under construction for a while longer ...

Dating Over 50 Vs. Being Killed By A Terrorist

Way back in the mid-1980s, Newsweek published a story that had single women quaking in their power suits. Drawing on the work of three Ivy League researchers, the story suggested that women over forty had a greater chance of being killed by a terrorist than of finding a husband. Later, of course, the story and its claims were found to be completely flawed and Newsweek, after the twentieth anniversary of the piece, even retracted it. Nonetheless, the image of the middle-aged, unloved divorcee persists—and it's partly accurate (men have a greater chance of remarriage after age 50 than women of the same age), but it's also not quite as bleak as the 1980s hysteria and some ensuing coverage makes it out to be.

Patrick Swayze's Most Romantic Movies

Patrick Swayze once said that he wanted to achieve the heights of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and Errol Flynn before he died. And in many people's opinions, the recently deceased actor/dancer did—fighting the bad guys as Flynn might in Red Dawn, dancing with the athleticism of Kelly in Dirty Dancing, and even serenading Jennifer Grey as Astaire might in the same movie. But, contrary to what Swayze might have thought of himself or how the entertainment world chose to package him, it will not be his physical presence alone that we remember him for. As much a romantic lead as a dancer, Swayze made us fall in love with him over and over again throughout the years in roles that didn't include a single two-step. Below, we've listed some of our favorite romantic Swayze films. Let us know if there are any we left off that you wish were included.

Specifically, avoiding the following oversize offensives will help you keep from leaving a bad taste in his mouth.
