Risky Neighborhood, Risky Sex?

Where you live has everything to do with your sexual behavior, at least according to a recent study. If you're exposed to violence on a regular basis within your immediate surroundings, you are more likely to engage in risky sex.

Sex After Giving Birth: Women Like It More Than You Think!

Despite the wear-and-tear on a new mother's body, the lack of sleep after a baby is born, and the constant screams of the newborn, science has found that most women are ready to get it on long before the end of the doctor-recommended six-week waiting period.

Online Dating Is Not So Awesome, Says New Study

Well, well, well. It looks like online dating isn't as great as it's cracked up to be. And that's not surprising to me. Look around at your friends. How many of them have successfully found love online? Aren't there more horror stories than not?

Study Gives New Meaning To The Phrase "Dirty Cheater"

If cheating itself isn't bad enough, now science confirms that cheaters, on top of being assholes, are also less likely to wrap it up before having sex with someone who isn't their partner. Gross! Let's just pour some (green, oozing) salt on that open wound, shall we?

Friends With An Ex: Is It Always Bad For Your Relationship?

When dealing with a case of the ex, there are generally two schools of thought. First, there's the "We're just friends, it's harmless, I only have eyes for you" group of people, who believe friendships with ex-lovers cause no real harm. On the opposite end are those (myself included) who feel that all ties with ex-boyfriends and girlfriends should be severed in order for new relationships to flourish.

Do We Judge Our Dates By Their Shoes?

Personally, I always knew that you could tell a whole lot about a person by just looking at their shoes. Dirty, beat-up Vans? Not dating that guy, or even touching him with any sort of length of pole. I'm glad that what I always knew has now finally been proven by science.

On Fire With Desire: How A Single Touch Can Make You Want Sex

Picture this: You're on a date, things are going "meh," but then all of a sudden he puts his hand on your knee, or even worse, on your cheek. Then before you can even take stock of what's going on, you feel an instant connection and things are no longer so "meh." You're thinking that chemistry has just transpired between you, and there's no escaping it. Well, settle down, because new research shows that it's a bit of a biological trick.

Monkeys & Monogamy: Study Unearths Origins Of Relationships

A new study finds that the evolution of monogamous couples is based on two important aspects: "Weak males with inferior fighting chops and the females who opted to be faithful to them." It's thanks to this behavior (in monkeys, naturally) that we have the modern family as we know it.

Why Sexual Orientation Labels Can Be Bad For Your Health

While celebs like Anna Paquin and Tom Hardy have embraced their bisexuality, a new study has cast light on the problem with the label itself. In research studies, bisexuals are commonly lumped with homosexuals. But this newest study, from researchers at Indiana University, uniquely targets women who identify themselves as bi, and just how that identification affects their overall health.

Study: Is "Gaydar" Real?

A long time ago I decided that the term "gaydar" was stupid and even somewhat offensive, but the fact of the matter is, I actually have gaydar and it's pretty damn accurate. It's so accurate that in high school I was able pinpoint the closeted gays, only to receive confirmation of just how right I was shortly after high school ... when they all came out.

Is The Era Of The Cougar Over?

At one point, cougars, or more accurately, older women, were revered for their sexuality. The saying "a woman is like a fine wine" and that Cougar Town show have seeped into our culture. But a new survey throws all that out the window...
