My Unfulfilled Fantasy: Same-Sex Hookups

I could go on with more it-almost-happened incidents I've had with women, but I think you get the point. Despite years and years and years of being single (and kinky!), women and I just never happened. For the past six months, I've been with a guy whom I want to be my life partner. While the intimacy we have together is worth everything to me, I'm honestly a little disappointed that I never got around to being with a woman

Should You Confess To Sleeping With Your BFF's Ex?

The better question isn't whether you would tell your BFF that you slept with her ex, but whether you'd sleep with her ex in the first place.

Oui, Y’all: Why Accents Are So Attractive

Why is it that some accents attract us, while others grate like nails on a chalkboard? Our inclinations toward certain accents are psychological and cultural, rather than physiological, says Susan Tamasi, a sociolinguist at Emory University. A romp with someone with an accent feels like taking a walk on the wild side—a mini-vacation without having to leave our bedroom. It's not the boy next door—his accent tells you that much.

Reasons Not To Get Back With Your Ex

If anyone ever had a reason not to get back with an ex, I did. He was the quintessential on-and-off Bad Boyfriend and not only were all my friends painfully aware of this fact, when he dumped me on the same day my father died (think Jessica and Tony birthday sitch x 10), then again after a similar life tragedy, it had finally become clear to me as well. I moved on fast. Literally days after he'd hit me with yet another, "I can't do this anymore," I somehow managed to enter into a relationship with a man who was easygoing and ridiculously sweet, so I hardly had time to mourn.

Are Apologies Enough After Domestic Abuse?

After being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and world famous pop star Rihanna, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault charges. While the assault occurred back in February, not much was heard from Brown, apparently on the request of his lawyers, until now. Hollywood Life reported that the R&B singer issued a video apology where he accepted responsibility, expressed remorse and promised to take steps to ensure he does not repeat his abuse. Read: The Real Reason For Chris Brown's Apology It can be argued whether Brown's apology was sincere or whether it was just a ploy to win back fans, but the bigger question remains as to just how far does an apology go in a domestic violence situation. Rihanna had the means and capability of leaving Brown after he assaulted her, but many women who suffer from domestic abuse do not have the same power.

Is Divorce Ruining American Society?

Coming from a divorced family, I have spent my life questioning the idea of a life-long commitment. Most of the adults I know have been divorced at least once, and of the couples who are still married, most of them (along with their kids) appear miserable. And so, while I would love to find a companion whose company I will enjoy "'til death do us part," I've learned from observation that this just might not be a realistic goal. And is it so horrible to think that maybe we weren't supposed to spend our entire lives with one person? Is traditional marriage the best—or only—way? Caitlin Flanagan, author of the Time article "Is There Hope for the American Marriage?" thinks so. But I just don't agree with the lady who claims that there is "no other single force causing as much measurable hardship and human misery in this country as the collapse of marriage."
