Is Your Hair Removal Process Sanitary?

The 'Frouple' Phenomenon: When Your BFF Is Kinda Your Boyfriend

"We're the same person, different hair," says Greta Gerwig’s character in the movie Frances Ha. The two female protagonists are the kind of pals who live together, sleep next to each other, read and knit as a pair, and can't quite remember who paid for the teapot. In other words, a frouple. The term, a combination of 'friend' and 'couple,' was coined to describe for the totally platonic yet can't-live-without-you type of friendship shared between two straight women (and occasionally, two straight men). Do you know a frouple? Could you be part of one?

The 7 Secrets Of Blissfully Single People

Producers of shows such as The Bachelor don't want you to know this. Peddlers of dating guides try to keep it a secret. Some of my fellow scholars pretend it's not true. But it is true. Plenty of single people are leading happy and successful lives. I've been studying singles for well over a decade, and I'm happy to let you in on the seven habits of highly successful singles.

Broken? Not Quite. What It Really Means If You're Not Married

If you're a single woman like me, I'm sure you've heard this refrain more than once: "But you're so smart/pretty/fun/great. Why aren't you married?" I have to admit I've puzzled over this for a while myself. At a certain age, odds are you're tempted to think it means there's something wrong with you. Well, it's time to put the pity party to an end and look at the facts. Love is a wonderful thing. But marriage isn't for everyone, and that's more than okay. Here's why.

How A Cab Driver Found My G-Spot & Gave Me The Best Sex Ever

The year was 1985. I was walking on Third Avenue in New York City. On the corner, a cab stopped at the light. The car was free and the driver smiled at me as I passed in front of his vehicle. I couldn't help but notice how drop-dead gorgeous he was. I raised my hand to hail him down, and he pulled to the curb to let me in. I sat in the front seat. The sexual magnetism between us was break-the-Richter-scale material. I wasn't there to be his fare and he wasn't there to be my driver.

Twerking? We don't think so.

Guess What? Miley Cyrus Ain't Even Twerking

Miley Cyrus performed on MTV's 2013 VMAs, stuck her tongue out way too many times, rubbed her vajajay with a foam finger, danced in a sexually suggestive manner and mostly just annoyed the audience — all in the name of twerking. She may have gotten her point across, but there's one point a lot of people are missing: Miley Cyrus was not even twerking.

Feminist Or Not, Every Woman Wants To Sleep With A Superhero

It's pretty clear why men fantasize about being superheroes: they're strong, powerful and revered. It wasn’t until I allowed myself to be open, to be vulnerable, that I found I could enjoy the very thing a man wants to be—strong, masculine, confident. My hero. That to allow a man be what he strives to be doesn't take away from who I am or what I can do. And I know I'm not alone in this.

Embracing The 'Invisible Woman': How I Learned To Age & Stay Sexy

Recently, a younger woman expressed to me the idea of the 'invisible woman.' She said it was already starting to happen to her; that her 'grand entrances' weren't causing the same kind of splash. The truth is, youth — no matter what it looks like — is perceived as beautiful...especially to men. When you stop turning heads, it hurts so intensely that you try to fight the inevitable. But having lived through it all and survived to tell the tale, I can assure you: it won't feel this way forever. Here's why.

The Most Epic F*ck You Breakup Letter Of All Time

Yesterday, a dear friend shared a story with YourTango of her discovery (through a twist of Facebook fate) that her boyfriend of nine months had been having an affair with his most recent ex the whole damn time. Post-confrontation, our friend composed an opus of a text so burningly poetic, we simply had to publish it. Behold the most epic f*ck-you breakup letter ever. (And, yes she sent it.)

How One Man Has Chosen A Lifetime Of Chronic Pain, All For Love

In 2004, my 5'7" father weighed 268 pounds and was diabetic. He was in a dire state. He'd struggled with his weight for years, but some devastating news from his doctor gave him the wake-up call he needed: if he didn't do something to drop the weight, he would, in all likelihood, die in five years. So, under his doctor's stern recommendation, my dad underwent lapband surgery that same year. Sure, his life was at stake, but somehow, I don't think that was his biggest motivator to get lap-band surgery. I think his decision was about something much bigger than himself.
