People have been debating whether or not men and women can be "just friends" for years. In the movies when you have a best friend of the opposite sex (that is heterosexual) your story line can only end two ways: in eternal love or in heartbreak.
If you're embarrassed because you're a decade or so away from becoming the female 40-year-old virgin, consider this. A new study from the University of Texas reveals that those who postponed sexual activity until age 19 or later are more satisfied in their relationships today. This explains a lot for the rest of us!
Despite our fantasies of Don Draper or Christian Grey, it's most likely a Michael Cera type who will be able to satisfy us the most sexually. A new Yale University study published in the Sex Roles journal (yes, that exists) found that men who believe they need to be dominant during playtime are less comfortable asking women about their sexual needs.
We hate to break it to you, but equality in marriage doesn't always seem to work. A study out of Norway suggests that the divorce rate for couples who share the housework is 50 percent higher than in marriages where the wife does all the chores herself. Say what?
Thanks to recent research in the Netherlands, we now have confirmation that when we're in prime mode to get it on, what may normally gross us out no longer does.
Next time you're in bed with your guy, don't hold back on being honest about your needs and desires. Even if you're going to blush, break out in hives and sweat from anxiety over the topic, suck it up because you have to start somewhere and the sooner you get cracking on it, the sooner your sex life will become the hottest, most sensual thing you can possible imagine.
I can't say it enough: "Cold feet" are not a harmless nuisance to shake off as you barrel down the aisle toward your tulle-filled fantasy wedding. They are, in fact, a real indicator that something is wrong, as I learned when I cancelled my nuptials in the nick of time. And a new study backs me up.
My quasi-new boyfriend and I are currently preparing for a big relationship transition: We're moving out of the "honeymoon" phase and into the "football-season" phase.
It seems we've been hearing about the possibility of this happening for quite some time; we even told you about a possible contraceptive shot to the penis a few months back. But this new male contraceptive pill — which, let's be honest, is a lot friendlier than a needle — was recently proven effective on mice, according to a new study. It made the animals temporarily infertile without hampering their sex drive.
You know how you make healthy New Year's resolutions every year like "eat more broccoli" or "actually use my gym membership?" You might even make these resolutions before the new academic year picks up in September, or before your schedule gets more hectic in the fall after the lazy days of August. Well, this year, add a new one to the list: "Don't tell lies."
An estimated 40 million Americans are living in sexless marriages, according to Jill Blakeway, clinic director of the YinOva Center and author of "Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido." Somewhat counterintuitively, jumping right back into the sack may not alleviate this problem. Instead, she recommends couples start with the basics to recharge their sex lives: K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
For a while now, it's been perceived that teens who aren't rushing to have intercourse are still experimenting with oral sex "en masse," as in rainbow parties and handies on the school bus. But a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention challenges that assumption with cold, hard facts.
In my estimation, 75% of science (and 98% of advertising) is one way or the other focused on male virility and potency. And Big Walnut is no exception to the rule.
I have to admit, when I jumped head-first into my current relationship back in April, I didn't put much thought into exactly why I was attracted to my now-boyfriend. However, thanks to science, I can confidently say that his non-aggressive nature and unlikeliness to harm me or my potential future offspring earned him major points.
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).
A recent study revealed that more than one in four teenagers in Texas had sent naked photos of themselves. In addition, one-third of those teens had asked to be sent a nude shot via text.
