If I gave you the sex talk instead of your mother…

If I gave you the sex talk instead of your mother
  1. Sex can be a lot of fun, especially when you like the person you’re having sex with. (Let’s not get into hate sex right now).  
  2. Always use protection. Guys, slap on a condom. I don’t care if it doesn’t feel as spectacular as going in unclad. You’re still going to have orgasm and won’t have to pay child support for the rest of your life.Ladies, not only does birth control make your boobs bigger and your skin clearer, it prevents babies from popping out of you. There’s nothing worse than praying for your period. Then breaking down in tears of joy when the horrible cramps seize your body and you know you’re not pregnant.Get on birth control and make sure he’s wearing a condom. No guy is worth your time if he doesn’t want to wear one.

Is Your Boyfriend Making You Fat?

Cozying up to a new guy? Make sure his favorite foods aren’t part of the relationship. Guys are notorious for bad eating habits—beer, chips, and chicken wings, to name a few. If you’ve existed on salads and lean protein and suddenly find yourself on the sofa (what gym?) throwing back a rack of ribs, you may be headed for the boyfriend layer. Yep, that’s the layer of fat that sometimes comes along with the happiness, safety and security of a new relationship. Relationships and food are complex and intertwined.

And here’s how to tell if the guy you’re dating is your keeper. Read more

Why Don’t Men Call?

why doesn't he call?
Doesn’t it drive you crazy? You meet a guy, you smile, you chat for a while, and then you give him your phone number. You’re waiting for him to call you, but instead he gets into a text game with you. But wait, let me ask you this question… When a man DOES call you, do you pick up the phone? If you miss his call, do you ring him back right away? Or do you just text him back and carry on with the texting game. Back and forth you go, without actually speaking or arranging a date. In today’s modern digital world, everyone is so confused. Nobody knows what to do when they meet someone. Should we call? Should we text? Should we Tweet? Read more

Gay Wedding Bliss

Would I have been a rebel fighting at the picket lines for change- or would I have been a passer-by- watching and wondering what would happen. This past Sunday I had the opportunity to truly "marry" my affinity for history and my passion for love. I attended the Lesbian & Gay Wedding Expo sponsored by FRONTIERS Magazine in Downtown Los Angeles. Read more
