Sunday morning, at 2:30 AM, I was jostled from my deep slumber by the obnoxious trill of my cellphone alerting me to a new text message. I knew it had to be one of two people. Anyone else who would text at such a late hour would be being rude, but a booty call is just playing by the rules.

Can A Virgin Ever Find Love?

The best thing I can say is this: those who pressure you for something you clearly don't want to do are not acting out of affection for you. Negative influences like those needed to be confronted and told to chill the f**k out and let them worry about their own sex lives instead of yours.

The Bachelor Episode 6: It's A Jungle In Here

Hola! This week, The Bachelor and his bevy of babes heads south of the border to a beautiful land untouched by the grimy hands of reality TV: Costa Rica. From the get-go, Brad's a wreck. His heart's aflutter for every one of his chicas. The ladies are equally smitten… until the first date card arrives for Chantal O. She’s ecstatic, naturally. But her arch nemesis, Michelle, hopes that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys. Brad picks her up and they head for a helicopter (of course), where he takes Chantal deep in the jungle to the world's longest zip-line course. After frolicking in the rainforest, they sit down to a romantic dinner. All is perfect… until it starts pouring. Running for their lives to save their hairdos and fancy glasses of wine, the couple escapes to the solace of Brad's room. Chantal, dripping wet, changes into one of Brad's white shirts, which makes Brad completely goo goo. Yes, she gets a rose.
