Fat is Bad for Married Sex

Does the idea of having sex with your fat spouse really get you excited?  With the exception of a few people with “fat fetishes”, having sex with your fat wife or husband either feels obligatory, or meets the bare standard of releasing your pent-up sexual desire.  The overweight partner has even greater issues when it comes to sex, which often goes beyond the psychological. The desire to have sex with a trim sexy partner isn’t a fabricated Hollywood myth; the science behind sexual interest in fit bodies is real and has been confirmed over and over, it is undeniable to a reasonable person.

My Life as a (Pretend) Stripper

I didn’t want to be a stripper. Really, I have no idea what I wanted from the exotic dance class I’d enrolled in at an adult education center.  I didn’t know whether the course catalog’s promise to help “create a full repertoire of floor-routine and chair moves you can use in enticing performances” was an achievable or even worthwhile goal.  But there I was in a leotard and stilettos, undulating my hips against an inert and perfectly innocent chair. The first order of business on day one was to pick our stripper names.  The gaggle of married lady friends in matching pink leotards seemed to be in a geographical mood, seeing as how they chose names like Savannah, Sierra and Asia.  The mousy woman recently dumped by her boyfriend chose Sexy Sadie because it was her ex’s favorite Beatles song.  The pretty but uptight Indian woman apparently didn’t grasp the smutty aspect of the renaming process because she replaced her

Prude To Nude: Learning To Love My Womanly Parts

British artist Jamie McCartney is working on a sculpture called "Design a Vagina." Using only volunteers, he is making casts of 200 women's vaginas, and displaying them together in 40 block panels. He wants to show people that where vaginas are concerned, "the variety of shapes is endlessly fascinating, empowering and comforting." This is the story of how, for one of those volunteers, his message really hit home.

Scientific Study Finds Men Like Looking At Breasts

A new scientific study has just "proven" what every female on the planet already knows: men like looking at breasts. What's more, men don't just like looking at breasts, but nearly half of them (forty-seven percent) will look at a woman's breasts before he looks at her face, and will look at them longer than any other body part.

5 Silly Girl Habits That Get In The Way Of Dating

Now ladies, before we do some playful poking (all in the name of tough love, of course), we want to first express how highly we think of you. Or rather, us. We (women) really are the superior sex in many ways. We're more articulate, sensitive, civilized and make maturity look easy. (Most of the time). Now if we could just fine-tune the below, we'd pretty close to perfect. 1.) Silly Body Obsession. 2.) Silly Jealousy 3.) Silly Question Asking 4.) Being Silly About Silly Guys 5.) Silly Second Guessing.

Are Breasts The Source Of Self-Confidence?

No, they're not real. That'd be the answer to your question if you had been wondering about Miss California's Barbie-doll-like cup size. The runner up to Miss North Carolina for the Miss USA title (who has been no stranger to the headlines lately) was outed Friday when a Miss California pageant official admitted, during an interview on "The Early Show," that the pageant paid for Carrie Prejean (Miss California) to receive breast implants, reports Huff Po.

How A Breast Reduction Changed My Love Life

As a kid, my ballet teacher nicknamed me Olive Oil because I was tall and skinny with long dark hair like the cartoon. By 14, puberty had left me squeezing into 32DD bras. My instant curves disgusted me. "You are not fat; you’re Zaftik," my mother would say in Yiddish, as she inspected my 5'7" and 120-lb. frame. She meant I carried my weight well. Large busts were so common among Jewish women they'd created a word in the Old Country for exactly what I'd inherited.

You're Pretty... Because Everyone Else Thinks So

As unique as we all like to think we are, there's more lemming in us than we realize. Not only are our actions open to suggestion, as previous studies have shown, so are our opinions about non-essential things like beauty. A new study explains that we have our unconscious brain to thank for that.

Inner Beauty: What Men Don't Tell You

Everyone from my mother to Mr. Rogers had articulated some version of 'beauty is only skin-deep.' What really mattered, they said, was inner beauty. But the concept of inner beauty was tough to comprehend. That other famous platitude, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," suggests that there's always someone who will think someone else is beautiful, and always someone who will think that same someone else is ugly. In other words, everyone is beautiful, and everyone isn't—so objective beauty doesn't exist. It's a nice thought, but scientists have told us for years that humans instinctively equate facial and bodily symmetry with attractiveness, because it connotes health.

Do Men Have Body Image Hangups?

Women aren’t the only ones dissatisfied with their bodies. Studies show a growing trend toward negative body image and self esteem. A recent Harvard study shows that, eating disorders among men are on the rise across the country and this scary trend seems to be going under the radar, because men are less likely to talk about it. "I'm not the only man who wishes his body looked more like Michael Jordan's and less like a vat of pudding. A recent survey showed that only 18 percent of men are happy enough with their physiques that they wouldn't change them."
