The Handjob Handbook authors' new book, 101 Places To Have Sex Before You Die (Simon Spotlight Entertainment, $13) hits shelves November 4. Old standbys like the airplane bathroom and the kitchen floor are mixed among more creative locales. The book provides tips and handy icons rating each locale on its levels of risk and exposure. If a place is especially conducive to same-sex partners (the gym, duh) or a bribe's likely required (backseat of a cab), Marsha Normandy and Joseph St. James (pseudonyms, can you believe it?) have mapped that out for you, too.

For the first time ever, I talked to my kids about dating without lecturing them about dating. This time was different because I was asking for dating advice for me, their mom. I have 6 kids, 3 girls and 3 boys, aged 8 to 20 so as you can imagine, their answers were quite...varied.
Mama's boy or not, your husband's mother had first dibs on your guy even before you were old enough to walk, let alone say "I do." Now that you're married, there are a few things she'd like you to know about the man you now call your own.
