Not sure what to be this Halloween? YourTango's pulled together 50 fun, original couples costumes.
Chances are you've heard the story: An unmarked door leads to a dimly-lit massage parlor where women with strong hands and tolerant smiles await a train of libidinous male patrons. The "happy ending" tale is all too common, a mixture of truth and urban legend that captivates male imaginations even in an age of casual sex and unlimited Internet porn. But until recently, the female version of "happy endings" has remained doggedly taboo. While one woman's violation may be the next woman's fantasy, here is the bottom line: We like massages and we like orgasms, so why shouldn't the two sometimes, er, come hand in hand?
"I am not going on this trip as some sort of half-baked internet blind date and I know you're not going on it to get into my pants." Thus spoke my road trip companion in a last-minute attempt to calm my nerves over what I was increasingly realizing sounded like a hare-brained plan—spend a week driving across the country with a man I knew only through social media.
What happens when your boyfriend is cheating on you with a guy? One woman reveals how the man she thought was her soul mate was really gay and using her as a cover:
Kevin Leland was looking for love on the online dating site OkCupid when he met Christine Billis, a woman who confessed to murder within their second phone conversation. What happened next? Not what you'd expect.
I'm not what you'd call an incredibly sexual person. Not anymore, anyway. I'm in my fifties now (and hopefully wiser for the wear), so I no longer have the frisky energy of a younger woman. In fact, it's that very lack of desperation that's freed me, sexually speaking. Having come to terms with the mature woman that I've become, I'm clearly in touch with what I want. And what I want is younger men.
We talk sex with Penny Antine (aka Raven Touchstone), award-winning adult film script writer.
An open marriage made me believe in monogamy.
I realized then that I had to find the strength to live without my husband. That was the day I realized that there was life outside of my house and inside of it, too.
What’s the first step in exploring S&M? Change the way you think. What exactly constitutes as S&M? Are you comfortable enough in your sexual relationship to try it? Ky Henderson clears up misconceptions and speaks to couples who agree that it is a new way to build trust and explore ways to potentially liven up a “vanilla” sex life.
It started with a flirty dance while out with friends. It turned into a torrid year-long affair that her husband never knew about. One writer shares her tale of infidelity and how, against all odds, adultery put her on the path back to her husband. "I heard the warning voice in my head reminding me that this was dangerous territory: however alone I might feel, I was, in fact, married. And then, for the first time in 10 years, I silenced it. As Alex placed his hands on my hips, I knew with absolute clarity that I was about to have an affair. I knew it was a decision that could unravel even the strongest of unions. I never could have guessed that it would save mine."
I was 17 and Fred was 24 when we first met. What began as puppy love grew into a lifelong bond and made me believe in undying love. There were a few times when I second-guessed my decision to marry someone else, but our dynamic made it undeniable: We were meant to be in love with each other, but that didn't necessarily mean we belonged together.
Now, we're in surgery mode and where once a little "nip/tuck" was considered an interesting possibility for the person who desired physical change, it's presently part of a culture that equates body modification with self-esteem. I am talking about vaginal surgery, as in labiaplasty, hymenoplasty and vaginoplasty — all procedures designed to enhance the appearance and feel of the vagina. What bothers me about the idea of vaginal surgery (when it's done for aesthetic reasons as opposed to medical) is that it just seems to provide yet another avenue for women to believe they're less than perfect as is.
Hubby in heaven, it will be eight years this Monday since the day you left this world. I used to imagine how would the pain feel years from the day you left. Remember you told me it would happen and that it would be ok because you would no longer be here? You were so right about so many things. But the most change took place within me.
I live in Orlando. He lives in Australia. At any given moment, there are 9,349 miles (plus, one hell of an expensive airplane ticket) separating me from my boyfriend. Let me be clear, this man is the greatest love of my life. He's on my mind and in my heart constantly, but I only see him four times a year for 2-week visits, and you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.
