It goes without saying that at some point in your life someone will ask you about your 'number.' Whether it be a one-night stand, a friend, or some fling you have while you're in Rio for the summer, the question will be tossed your way. In those instances, what will you say?

A new study reveals that 22% of men lie about how many people they've hooked up with, and when it came to exaggeration their number, 12% of them were guilty of it. Does a certain number make us a better or worse person? Does it really matter how many or how few people we've bedded? Apparently, to some women, it does.

Just last week, the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia overturned that state's anti-sodomy laws. The decision was based on the ten-year-old US Supreme Court decision stating that it is unconstitutional to criminalize private, consensual sexual activity between adults, basically voiding all anti-sodomy laws in the US. However, several states kept their anti-sodomy laws in the books, and some even attempt to prosecute citizens for them, as in Virginia.
I usually catch up on my leisure reading when I travel. Lately I’ve indulged in books about the history of sex, but it’s even more rewarding to find sexy history in non-sexy books. The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter is fascinating. Not that I’m a history buff At. All., but it would appear that she’s a super thorough researcher.

• Dinner and a movie is so overdone. What are some creative dating ideas? Here are a few of my favorites, and by the way Dinner and a movie is for people in a relationship.

Lots of people think a woman's "number" is a big deal. Most dudes don't really want to know. They do want to know if she has sexually transmitted diseases. Or if she's still friends with any of the famous guys she's had sex with. Or, exactly, how kinky is she.
Women have an urgent need to blab every thought in their head and share every sexual experience they've ever had in their quest to "be honest" with men. This uncensored sharing is a big mistake.
