Lyz On Love is a weekly round-up of internet news about love and relationships and all those other indoor sports. This week on Lyz On Love, I am talking about love and the classroom. In the video, I confess to dating a classmate, who turned out to just be using me to make his ex girlfriend jealous. Sadly, she never became jealous. Was it my sweet 90s suspenders or stylish newsboy caps? We will never know. But what was left out of the video, was that I ended up using him to drive around in his convertible and egg people's houses. (I sure hope there is a statute of limitations on those confessions). So, in the end, that relationship worked out for me. I also dated another classmate, this time in college. He just played the guitar and World of Warcraft. A. Lot. But he did make me some sweet mix CDs. I think it lasted a month. There is only so much you can do in a relationship that is based on video games and Ben Harper covers.

Blog: Life As A Human Sexuality Major Blogger: The Sexologist, a 24-year-old human sexuality major LoveStage: Taken Now that the school year has started our thoughts turn to academics. And what students are more exciting that those studying to be sexologists? With this in mind, we bring you this week's blogger crush, Life As A Human Sexuality Major. This 24-year-old anonymous blogger makes "no claims to be an 'expert' in Human Sexuality," but hopefully one day she'll be teaching us all about it. She learned about sex in second grade after her older sister and a friend gave an impromptu lesson, drew naked angels in junior high art class and took her first human sexuality class in college. "I think that I always was intrigued with the obscene, the controversial, and the unmentionable," she explains.
