The most recent wedding plus guns equals bloodshed math problem occurred in Turkey. And this jive turkey went down like this: a fellow, fresh off of going from bridegroom to husband celebrated by rattling a few rounds out of his AK-47. And this young Turk was likely of the untrained variety and sprayed down guests when he lost control of the rifle. His dad and two aunts were killed and several others were wounded. Proving once again that guns and wedding just don't mix.
There is a legend—an accepted legend but a legend nonetheless—that strong-headed, career-focused women are very difficult to please in the head, heart and baby-makers. Some combination of stress, perfectionism and immaculately kempt hair (periodically in a bun so tight that it makes changing facial expressions nigh impossible) make us think that she hasn't been properly rogered in eons and would probably be a drill sergeant in the sack. As it turns out, common knowledge is mad wrong, yo.
The happy divorce film is here to (maybe) stay. As you likely know, Julia Roberts has brought smash hit Eat, Pray, Love to the big screen. But is it just another in a long line of films lionizing the divorcee and glossing over the dirty parts of splitting?
When self-pleasure surpassed the regular stuff. Bozo gets dumped for letting his girlfriend take a foul ball beaning for him. Statistical signs he may be cheating. More on manscaping. The extra benefits of a vasectomy. Escaping a boring relationship. Worst wedding trends. Where wedding planning and fantasy football meet. Can men and women be friends? Signs she's faking an orgasm.

You know how some people think that PMS is just an excuse for some women to act crabby a few days per month? Well scientists in Taiwan may have cleared some things up. Brain scans show that intense cramps may cause permanent changes to a woman's brain.
Are you a little too embarrassed to read certain how-to books in public? Well, friend, you are in luck. The Kama Sutra has finally been converted to an audio book. The British publisher, Beautiful Books, has a smooth-voiced English actress reading the tome. And it turns out that this old Indian book is not just a how-to for sex positions, but also a guide for relationships.
The good folks at OK Cupid (the dating site) did a study correlating which mobile device their users upload photos from. They then cross-referenced that data (those data, if you will) with personality tests such as the "Slut Test" and realized that iPhone users have more sex partners than users of the BlackBerry or the Android.
Some people feel VERY strongly about virginity. The dating site YouAndMeArePure.com purports to be an alternative to 'all those other dating sites in which the goal is to put you-know-what you-know-where without putting a ring on you-know-what.' It's probably good to have this kind of online dating alternative.
On a recent episode of Larry King Live, Alexandra Wentworth—author of The Wasp Cookbook—hosted a very special episode on fidelity. The topic at hand: fidelity: for or against.
As you may know, teens, adults and grownups don't always have the best information regarding sexual health and reproduction. Even "comprehensive" sex-ed misses a few things or loses a pointer or two during the snickering. The irony is that "hey, don't have sex," if followed (and that's a big IF), is still the best way to avoid unplanned babies and crotch-born ailments, however impractical that may be. At any rate, the 9 awesomest myths about getting a baby inside of your belly:
