Study: Male Hair Loss Drug Propecia Making Men Impotent

Sounds like a pretty rotten deal, but a new study shows that men who take medication for hair loss risk losing something particularly valuable in return.

What I'm Learning From My Long-Distance Relationship

In the grand scheme of things, it's only a year. He's not going to war and from what I know, computer programming is not the most dangerous profession.

The 7 Things You Must Know About Birth Control

In this day and age, it seems like every one of my friends is on the birth control pill. However, unlike most girls, most of my friends went on the pill to have sex at the end of high school, and simply stayed on it to enter college. And while most people know the basics of birth control, few people ever bother to read the fine print. So here are some of the most important things that you should know (i.e. all the stuff that’s on that little packet of info you throw out every month):

Couple Wins Lawsuit Against Worst Wedding Videographer Ever

They say a picture is worth a thousand words but for British couple Martin and Heidi Shubrook, a video is worth a thousand dollars. When Martin and Heidi received their video, all they saw was grass.

Shocker: unlike what popular culture might suggest, college campuses aren't actually a hotbed of lesbian experimentation.

Dating Terminology We Need To Ditch

Sometimes, the worst part of dating is having to endure the cliche phrases that accompany it. I swear, if one more person says, "He's just not that into you," I'm going to jump into my oven and never come out. It was fun back in 2003 when the phrase debuted on Sex and the City and then became the title of a book (and then a movie!), but let's be honest, it’s totally played out. I get it. I grasp the concept. He's just not that into me and if he was, he would be. Next PLEASE? I beg of you single population-at-large, let's make dating somewhat hip again so we can feel non-lame while engaging in it. Here are some dating phrases that we need to put the kibosh on.
