You know the economy is in big time trouble when truckers are spending less in Nevada brothels. The legal prostitution industry has reported a slump since the economy has faltered. This is causing Nevada brothels to offer freebies and bonuses, which equates to some very poor sex workers in the process. Many are reporting six-figure losses in 2008.
Changing your name is something we associate with getting married—should you keep your maiden name or take his name? But there’s another LoveStage that deals with shifting monikers as well—getting divorced. If you took your husband’s name when you married, you may want to slough off his name after the breakup. But what do you change it to?
He said "gimme some sugar, baby"...but he wanted a Mars Bar. Marco Fella, 38, of England, bit his girlfriend because he felt angry she wore big Bridget Jones panties instead of thong underwear. And he blamed his sugar addiction! Fella told the judge he noshes 10 Mars Bars a day and the sugar addiction's got him high-strung. Therefore he attacked his 34-year-old live-in girlfriend two times in 10 days: first by throwing a doggie chew toy at her and then by biting her.
A new psychological trend has made it's way into the forefront–postnuptial depression. Postnuptial depression occurs after the wedding, when couples seek counseling to overcome the sadness of settling into married life.

We usually don't associate the brrrr!-ful winter months with boobs hanging out of our clothes (that would be summertime!) but the Daily Mail points out a tricky sartorial trend: lots of cleavage with the holiday party dresses. Especially in such sweatpants-and-tee-shirts times, us single girls relish the holiday party for the chance to show off some cleavage and reel in a randy fellow. It's been a long time since our Sexy Police Woman / Sexy Nurse / Sexy Mailman costume at Halloween, after all. In northern climates, we're wearing down jackets from late September until late March, so dress-up opportunities are few and far between. The trick, of course, is to show off your girls in a sensible way. So how low should you go? Aim for what you feel comfortable with -- though we suggest you aim for social appropriate-ness. A cocktail party on a Saturday night? Go wild. An office party? Definitely show a bit less, but still enough to enchant Bingo in accounting. Synegogue or church? Cover 'em up.
Couples who struggle to keep their relationship sexy (and if there's a couple out there that doesn't struggle with this, please stand up) often find themselves at a loss for solutions. All of the elements are there: love, trust, intimacy. Only the passion is lacking. Cue revolutionary couples therapist Esther Perel. She will tell you things like "More intimacy can lead to less sex" and "The fear of loss is essential to love." Her frank talk for couples looking to reignite their passion has made her a semi-celebrity, and she's appeared on Oprah and the Today show to discuss her acclaimed book, Mating in Captivity. And now, for the price of an hour-long therapy session, you can get Perel for an entire day.
Does your dude have trouble getting it up? One user over at Shine has a boyfriend who can only hold an erection when he is completely in control. However, when she gets on top or tries to move underneath him, he loses it, or gets overly excited. If you're curious about which state has the lowest divorce rate and which has the highest, head over to Dear Sugar and take their quiz. Maybe you'll decide to relocate. So Sex and the Single Guy is toying with the idea of style promoting confidence. His conclusion? You have to have confidence to begin with. "You can't just buy confidence in the form of clothes during a shopping spree."
Oh Lordy. Sex at work just got interesting! Here's the story: two ad agency art directors were having sex in their Manhattan office one Friday afternoon a few weeks ago. A co-worker noticed, alerted his buddy from IT and the two peepers recorded the 20-minute session with their phones. The buddy then uploaded a 60-second video to his computer, sent it to some officemates and lo, a week later the clip ended up on Gawker.
