Online dating can be fun, tricky and downright dangerous. I have some rules that I follow with every guy that I meet online. And yes, I should know---I'm 42 and still single.
Is there a logical explanation as to why lady parts can't orgasm consistently or (in some cases) ever during sexual intercourse? Can a pill, patch, cream, or vaginal collagen injection, morph a frigid woman into a sex pot with O-faces aplenty? Here's a round-up of how science has tried to help women reach orgasm.
Al and Tipper Gore were Washington's fairytale couple—especially when they stood next to the Clintons. The high-school sweethearts stuck together through the rearing of four children, Al's eight tumultuous years as Vice President, and through his devastating loss to George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election. Luckily it seemed that things had gotten better for them in recent years—heck, Al won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007! And who can forget the famous kiss at the 2000 Democratic Convention? Yes, we admit it was a bit painful to witness, but before the Age of Obama, a glimpse into a happy, loving, political couple was such a breath of fresh air. "Wow," we all thought to ourselves, "if they're still happily married, there must be some hope for me!" But then, after 40 years of marriage the Gore's pulled the rug out from us all by announcing their separation. They didn't divulge much, saying only that the separation was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision". Well, like the rest of the country, the lack of information has driven us to speculation. The following are our best theories as to what may have caused the split.
The French Open is winding down, but the behind-the-scenes action is still hot. While many top players are happily coupled with civilians, like Rafael Nadal, many more are cruising the insular world of pro tennis for love—it's a hotbed of hookups, breakups, and salty euphemisms about forehands.
In Hollywood, age differences of 15 years or more are as common as Botox and palm trees, as celebrities seem to think nothing of dating someone significantly older or younger than them. And although one of Hollywood’s longest-running age gap couples, Barbara Hershey, 62, and Naveen Andrews, 41, recently called it quits after 11 years together, below are nine other May-December relationships that are still going strong.
When we heard the sad news of Dennis Hopper's passing, we got to thinking about how, even though he is most remembered for playing "crazy" characters, in his younger days he had the looks to become a matinee idol. And this got us thinking about all those other actors from times gone by who make us wish we had been born several decades earlier. Here now is a list of 10 Hollywood Hotties that we miss. (Since it's so hard to rank levels of sexiness, we're presenting these men to you in alphabetical order!)
As you get older and come to terms with the dwindling of your time on this planet, you realize there's some stuff you really need to do before you check out. For some people it's climbing K2, for others its reading Don Quixote, starting a charity, having a child, or curing cancer. I'd just like to bone a girl outdoors. Here's the hitch—I'm one of those people who thinks too much about stuff. Sex in public presents inherent problems for us, as we immediately conjure every potential insane scenario that will ruin the moment or get us fired/arrested. A public bone-sesh is something most guys want to check off their lists. But honestly? A lot of us are too scared. I need to know if anyone out there has a remedy for us that doesn't require a prescription.
While there are many celebrities who define public service as putting in two nightclub appearances in a single evening (we're looking at you, Brody Jenner), there are a few that recognize that there is a world bigger than product endorsements and tabloid covers. The men on this list are some of our favorite celebrity military veterans who have put our country's needs before their own. For your selflessness, gentleman, YourTango salutes you.
The summer weather has been so great, that amidst all of the outdoor brunches, pondside picnics, and trips to the beach, it's easy to forget that the best most romantic summer experiences often occur when there isn't much activity around you. When you feel a little heatstroke coming on, why not pick up a good book and chill out? If there's someone special in your life, we recommend doing a joint summer reading list. You'll keep each other accountable, you'll develop your taste, and nothing says chemistry like bonding over shared love of a book. Here are four to get you started:
My pal Stella is going through a terrible breakup with a horrible man. Like most of us, Stella knows how to deal with their split (time, wine, chocolate, more wine, more time), but she was concerned about the bigger picture. Why had she gotten herself mixed up with this jackass in the first place?
No one ever said managing a career was easy. Throw a relationship into the mix and you've got career suicide, right? Wrong. While we'd all love to forgo a day of work in exchange for a fun-filled day with our significant other, having a strong relationship doesn't mean your occupational goals have to suffer. It's quite the opposite! Extensive research on the subject of relationships and careers shows that people in successful relationships not only make more money, they're healthier, live longer, and get more promotions than singles do. So how can you juggle your relationship and your career? We've got the five tips that’ll keep your work and love life harmonious—and YOU sane!
Well friends, yet another season of American Idol is drawing to a close. We know—we're sad too. As we wait anxiously for the country to dial in and decide between Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze, we would like to take this time to recognize the sexiest moments of Season 9—from the auditions, to Hollywood Week, to the top three.
Now that summer's coming, we can say goodbye to coats, colds, hay fever, and best of all, spring's notoriously bad movies. Iron Man 2 came out a couple of weeks ago, marking the beginning of summer's crop of blockbusters. As much as we all love our outdoor summer dates, we've got to admit that it's nice snuggling up inside a darkened, air-conditioned theater when the humidity gets too hot to handle. Here are our summer movie picks for 2010
