The sitcom Two and a Half Men recently achieved the impossible: it mentioned a sex act that the Internet had never heard of, and if you know the Internet, you'll also know that it's usually the premiere source of obscure sex moves. "Japanese Rain Goggles" had the web in a tizzy last week. So what does it mean?
I married a man who invented the strong-silent type. He is quiet, logical and often taken aback by my less logical more emotional responses to issues such as him eating the last cookie or telling me that maybe I might look better in another outfit. And while he gets how to do our taxes and exactly how dew point relates to airplanes leaving trails in the sky, he doesn't get that sometimes, I need to know how he feels about an issue and "nothing" is not an emotion. Curiously, it took a mutual affection for the show Dexter, which chronicles the life of a serial killer trying to function in a normal relationship, to get my husband to open up.
Ask most girls under age 10 what "happily ever after" looks like and they'll talk to you about meeting a man (probably a prince) and kissing him at the royal wedding. Ask a grown woman what "happily ever after" looks like and she'll probably tell you the same thing. If you respond, "No, what does it look like to you NOW, as a grown woman," she'll stare at you blankly. I know this is true because it happened to me repeatedly while I interviewed women around the country for my book and documentary, Seeking Happily Ever After. No one ever told us that we could redefine happily-ever-after for ourselves—and that doing so might make us, well, happier. So here for you is permission to do it, and four ways to go about it.
So, remember before when we said we were on Vienna Girardi's side, after a charmless Jake Pavelka generally acted like a tool and made her cry on their Bachelor reunion interview? Well, we take that back. The reason we're back to hating Vienna? We've discovered that, right before she began filming The Bachelor, Vienna asked her then-boyfriend to marry her! RadarOnline is reporting that Vienna told live-in boyfriend Brian Lee Smith...
What do you get when you cross a sensual 73-year-old woman with a 33-year-old single father in a salsa bar in Manhattan? No, this isn't a set up for some obscure, bar bar joke. Rather, it's the premise for the premiere episode of TLC's new series Strange Sex.
It was 11:45 p.m. on a Wednesday night. My wife and I were exhausted and cozied up in bed together. We both had one thing on our minds. Unfortunately, it wasn't the same thing. I was craving sex and she was craving the season three finale of "Friday Night Lights." We were at a standstill, experiencing what some might call a "21st century marital pickle." It seems Netflix and sites like Hulu just might be the modern couple's greatest obstacles to a steady sex life. The continuous supply of great TV is so accessible and so compelling, many a good couple become hooked like crackheads and forget about making their own entertainment. Through burning eyes and next day regret, couples machete through a season of "Lost" or "The Wire," ignoring or forgetting to fuel their loins. But on this night, something in me snapped and I drew a line in the sand … with my penis. "Babe," I said, "we're in a losing battle against awesome TV. It will never end. There are too many TV shows out there; when do we get to do it?"
Symbols and images are known to evoke deep emotional responses in all of us, which is why watching television shows including the News can be so addicting. Here I discuss that the choices you make regarding which shows to watch may actually be lowering your vibrations, and thus affecting you in unhealthy ways
Jimmy D. swore up and down that he was ready for a real, deep woman (and for once, he wasn't talking about her cleavage). After a near-death experience (he was beaten and lost…an eyelid?) he was ready to find real love. Mateo swore up and down that the most important thing to him was his woman's religion; he wanted to raise a Christian family. What did both guys do at the mixer? The exact opposite of what they said!
We recently explored why Jack Bauer would make a really terrific husband. And then it dawned on me that an awful lot of people who get close to Jack Bauer wind up injured, jailed or dead. That doesn't sound like someone you'd want to be married to at all.
Jeez Louise. We're less than a month into 2010 and Jack Bauer has already been dragged back into the CTU fold, escaped torture, saved the life of a foreign head-of-state and uncovered a mole. If they keep up this pace for the next 20 hours, I'll be exhausted just watching 24. At any rate, Jack Bauer is an American hero. Here's why he would be the ideal husband, as well.
Cindy Margolis is back in the limelight. The internet's most downloaded woman has a television program on Fox, debuting January 30, 201. The show, entitled "Seducing Cindy", chronicles the newly-single Margolis' attempts to find a bloke. And, given her documented fertility issues, she is requiring the gentlemen to produce a sperm sample (in a cup, we guess).
As you likely know, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (now just Tiffani Thiessen, I reckon) married a guy named Brady Smith back in 2005 and now she is pregnant. In Hollyweird you're not really taken until you have a kid or have been together for 12 years together, so this kid news is pretty devastating to a lot of us. It has me recalling all of my big-time TV crushes and what they mean to me. Featuring Winnie Cooper, Kelly Kapowski, Joey Potter and Margene Henrickson.
