Screw the patriarchy. Literally?

Screw the patriarchy. Literally?

Why Women Stop Being Porn Stars

How to make love like a porn star

At the beginning of relationships even the prudest women act like porn stars. We get BJs in the car (and many other places). But after a few months or years we can’t even get a BJ in bed. Or only after much begging and maybe even manipulation, which leaves us feeling like undesirable, pathetic fools.

College hookup culture?

College hookup culture?

Love hurts

Love hurts

We all know that lost love and unrequited love hurts. But as a headline from Live Science points out, “Love Hurts (Other People)” too.

Florida State researchers surveyed 130 hetero students in long-term relationships on their levels of jealousy (e.g., “How likely are you to surprise-visit your partner to see who is with him/her?”). Read the rest of this entry

Honesty is the Best Policy in Relationships?

Honesty is the best policy in relationships, right?

Cinderella: More Feminist Than You Think

Cinderella-2

Disney’s Cinderella

Disney’s new Cinderella is constantly labeled “unfeminist.”
