I knew this topic would catch your eye!:P Don't get too excited...this blog consists of my opinions on the issue of virginity...that's it.That's right, no phallic imagery :(
There has been a messy-mess of virgin and abstinence talk over the past couple of years. Conservatives and liberals argued over sexual education. Some famous teens were impregnated. A comely 22-year old sold her virginity to a Nevada brothel and we all said "how sweet" when we saw the Jonas Brothers' purity rings. But the shoemaker Candies may be really confusing matters with their newest campaign for abstinence.
How I became a divorced virgin: "I was twenty-nine, single again after a five-year marriage, and a virgin. When I met my now ex-husband Mike, I had just turned 21. We met at small Catholic liberal arts college, and even though I no longer believed in Jesus, the Saints, the Bible, God, really any of that. I was a virgin then, and I was a virgin when we divorced."
What makes a boyfriend into a husband? Suggestive sausage ads. What happens at a bachelor party? Bachelorette party gift dont's. A movie about your first time. What, exactly, is a naked date? The survey says: men and women are different. Could you live on Muff Road?
Back in April, I shared my story of having vaginal reconstruction. Of course, a surgery of this nature requires sex to be put on hold for quite awhile, but I promised readers that I would write again when my spouse and I finally gave the new runway a test flight. After eight weeks post-op, I was able to finally come home with the news, "It's cherry poppin' season, honey!" and we made our first attempt. The key word here is "attempt." Let me explain.
In recent days, the online world has been shocked and enraged over "April's Mom," a woman who has blogged for months about her supposedly doomed pregnancy with a terminally ill daughter-to-be— only to be revealed as a hoaxster in desperate need of attention. But should Beushausen really be sorry? And should her readers really be angry? Don't we all know better than to believe everything we read these days (especially when it's on the web)? You'd think so. But Beushausen isn't the first person to draw criticism from the masses for creating an elaborate online hoax. Below, we've listed 5 Fake Love & Sex Websites That Fooled The World.
Shia LaBeouf is certainly not afraid to talk about sex and his unconventional upbringing. The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star previously discussed losing his virginity, not being well-endowed, and finding his mom to be the ideal woman. Now the star is opening up about seeing his parents do the nasty and the end of his three-year relationship with ex-girlfriend China Brezner.
We all have our own moral code we follow when it comes to sex, whether it's to wait a month or two before sleeping with a new partner, to do it whenever it "feels right," or to save sex for marriage. While today's media often depicts society as being free and open about sex, with those Gossip Girl hooligans shacking up with a new partner every week, it turns out some people are even saving kissing for marriage. That's right, kissing.
Guess what. Contrary to everything the church, the Bush administraton and Jessica Simpson have told you, your virginity is not priceless. No, dear hearts. There is a price that can be put on it and that price is $20,000. Plus a film role. Plus 90% of the highest bid when your virginity is auctioned off to the masses. Or so says an Australian filmmaker.
Author Jessica Valenti appeared on The Today Show, this morning to discuss her book The Purity Myth. Railing against things such as purity balls and abstinence-only sex education programs, Valenti argues women are being given unrealistic expectations when it comes to sex.
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.
The newest study to surface in what we like to call, "No Way!" science is the age you lost your virginity might be genetic. Researchers at California State University think "sexual precociousness" is an innate personality trait, and that you may come from a long line of lost-it-at-18ers. Nancy Segal, the lead researcher in the study, admits that science will never be able to predict when one will lose their virginity by staring at cells on a microscope. Of course, it's much more complicated than guessing height or weight. Promiscuity and early sex, they note, can be pinned on a variety of environmental issues. After studying 48 pairs of twins separated at birth and 23 individual twins, researchers theorize genes explain a third of the reason why people lose their virginity at a certain age.
The Game Developers Conference had a new challenge this year: to spec out a game about losing one's virginity. Designer Eric Zimmerman posed the risque challenge and Heather Kelley and Erin Robinson teamed up to defeat it. We're probably a little ways away from seeing this game on store shelves.
Nick Jonas, the promise-ring-wearing heartthrob formerly linked to Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, is once again off the market. According to Betty Confidential, he's now keeping company with a whole new Disney up-and-comer: fair-haired 17-year-old singer Jordan Pruitt.
Love Bytes: three must-click sex, dating and relationship links. Stop lying to yourself. We all know the real reason why you want to "friend" your ex. [Star Tribune] "Like LinkedIn, it [Facebook] has the credibility of being a professional and social networking site," [therapist Mark] Laaser says. "It's a less obvious and blatant hunting ground for ex-lovers than classmates.com." But Laaser says motives often aren't innocent: "The population that I deal with is mainly doing it for the sexual buzz, the neurochemistry, the excitement of the pursuit." Yet another reason why it sucks to be a math major. [Buzzfeed] When we're talking about how we give handjobs, let's be clear about something. [Smitten]
