The indie rom-com The Pill is about the day after a one-night stand that the man fears will result in a pregnancy; hilarity and the pursuit of emergency contraception ensue. We asked two writers—one male, one female—to sound in on one-night stand etiquette, answering such questions as: When to bring up contraception? How to talk about the potential of it failing? And, whose responsibility it is to deal with the consequences of contraception gone wrong?
Pegging. Maybe you've heard about it, maybe you've tried it—or maybe you want to, but don't know where to begin. Here's a closer look at this sex act, the toys required to do it and why more and more couples are "pegging" now than ever before.

Or maybe he's got an erection now, but loses it before you can actually get busy. Sure, what goes up must—eventually—come down, but so soon? Your first thought is probably, "Why can't he get it up?
