First of all, when has this ever been a bad idea? In all seriousness though, it doesn’t seem to matter what night of the week it is, but being newly alone after a separation or divorce is, well…lonely. Being alone when you have been used to being with your ex or with your ex and the kids as a family is a huge adjustment.

A new study claims that children as young as 6 years old are exposed to sexually explicit content online daily.

One woman's story about her young sons' exposure to Internet porn shows the impact it can have on future views and sexual behaviors. An Australiastudy found that watching porn during childhood decreases sexual arousal in adulthood, requiring more intense erotic acts to stimulate orgasm.

A couple years ago I attended a performance at one of those trendy yet underground clubs on the Lower East Side. Normally, I wouldn’t even be able to get into that place, but since my friend had recently started cocktail waitressing there, we were ushered past the long line and escorted to one of those exclusive tables that everyone outside would have killed at which to be seated.
A new study suggests that a guy's "gayve-away" may have less to do with a limp wrist, a light pair of loafers and a penchant for the color pink — and more to do with eyeball dilation. The study, scientific as it gets, measured the shrinking and growth of guy's pupil when he's exposed to various erotic, visual stimuli (re: porn).
At first sight, Jim had already met my image of the perfect boyfriend: cute, boy next door with trusting eyes. I check out his profile -- it's kind of vague, but funny. I have now decided this could be the perfect guy! He then asks me about my work and I in return ask what he does ...
