Hey, New York! Tell your daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, or other young people about the Community Healthcare Network Teens P.A.C.T.’s free 9th Annual Conference, “More Than Just Sex.”
Man meets woman in yoga class. Asks her out on a date. Her friends warn he’s weird because, “No one goes out on dates anymore.” His friends say he should’ve emailed her on OKCupid to ask: “Need dick?”
Whether it’s too much sex, too little sex or the gamut of relationships problems, if I take all the questions I’ve ever been asked, most boil down to this: “Is there something wrong with me?” The answer, of course, is no. Caveat: If something about your sex or relationships with consenting adults impaires everyday functioning, [...]
Lovers, I’m taping a live radio show pilot at The Greene Space, “How To Be A Grown A$$ Woman,” for WNYC (New York Public Radio)’s with Jezebel writer and “full-time moral scold” Lindy West, Gawker’s Ask a Clean Person Jolie Kerr, and TheBillfold co-editor Logan Sachon.
I’m a slut. You’re a slut. Amanda Knox is certainly a slutty-slut. Jeez! It’s 2013 and adults should be able to sleep with each other and still get jobs, have credibility, and don’t get called freaky sluts by news anchors.
Women and people of color are grossly underrepresented in film and television. Kickstarter is (was?) the lesser-known filmmaker’s door into the business. So what the fuck is Hollywood doing there? I’m not a hipster hating on Zach Braff, my beef is with diminishing independent media; I want more, not fewer, voices.
I’m not a sex columnist who explains “How To Please Your Man in 15 Ways with a Cucumber!!!” You’re smarter and deserve more than that. No one ever teaches us how to be adults. We learn it in our own way, on our own timelines. We fuck up. We give up. We hurt people.
Manchester United is undoubtedly the sexiest team in the English Premier League. The team just won the crown for the 20th time. If you’re into sports stats and sports history, see BBC News article Manchester United’s Premier League title win in numbers.
Ricci Levy said it best: “Sex makes people uncomfortable. Sex talk, sex acts, sexuality [...]” So, what do we do? We avoid it. Meanwhile, sexual assaults, STD rates, unintended pregnancies and other rates remain relatively high. But, that’s great, you know, as long as we don’t say the word “sex” in public.

Let’s be clear: I think anyone who wants to marry should be able to marry. Full stop. Period. In addition to that, a key ingredient missing from the equation is this: Single people hooking up, shacking up, or dating — whether someone of the same sex or not — are getting screwed.
I swear “The Date Presentation” video is my last Property Brother reference for the week; back to non-PB updates, next week!
This is how FUNKY BROWN CHICK® likes to get down. I love identical twins, and HGTV Property Brothers‘ Drew Scott and Jonathan Silver Scott are so dreamy :) Since my height is only 5’7″ (with heels, 5’5 1/2″ without), I was on my tippy toes. They ooze sexuality and are even hotter and taller in person, standing at 6’5″.
Fewer people would hate math if they learned it in a practical way. Who really cares about the probability of selecting a red ball out of a bag? In an effort to show you how fun numbers can be, let’s use stats to answer this question: How many Asian chicks are hooking up with white dudes?
I’m a contributor for “They’re All So Beautiful,” the six-part companion web series to PBS documentary film SEEKING ASIAN FEMALE. I dig into the data on interracial couplings to show you: Guess Who Likes to F*ck Asians? Gorgeous infographic is by PK.
Sex is better when you know neither you nor your partner will contract an STD. April is National STD Awareness Month. GYT. Get yourself tested. It’s easy and free. One click to the AIDS.gov locator and they’ll show you a map with testing sites near you. But, let’s not focus exclusively on STDs. Sex is more [...]
Al Jazeera recently published my latest Op Ed about American sexuality, “Sex Week: Losing the Fight for Sexual Health at the University of Tennessee.” It’s available online. Read it to learn about public health consequences of not investing in sex education.
It was an International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam official selection. Figures. Everything that crosses my path seems ties back to the Dutch; I guess you can take me out of The Netherlands, but Holland won’t ever leave me, huh? Filmmakers Ashley Sabin and David Redmon‘s Girl Model “is a lyrical exploration of youth, beauty and [...]
You have to see documentary film SEEKING ASIAN FEMALE. Steven is an old American dude who wants a young, beautiful Chinese bride. Sandy meets him online and flees Anhui, China, to marry him in California. She doesn’t speak English, and he doesn’t speak Mandarin. Chinese American documentary filmmaker Debbie Lum captures it all on film. [...]
Sincerest thanks to Megan Andelloux and The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health for naming me one of their Hump Day Heroes. Every Wednesday, CSPH highlights a sexual and reproductive health professional. They interviewed me near the December holidays. Despite the delay due to travel, speaking gigs, and a million other things in between, I wanted to [...]
New York City’s soul is dying, killed off by the rich. When I signed the lease four years ago, the real estate broker called my 450 sq. ft., Upper East Side, Manhattan rental a junior one bedroom. That was funny. Guess what was in the living room? My kitchen and bedroom. Where I come from, [...]
Hmmm, I don’t really know him; we just went to the same high school and later linked up on Facebook. Nevertheless, I second guess: What the hell? Don’t be stingy with greetings, Twanna. Might brighten his day. 9:48am. Twanna writes on Jack Shea‘s timeline … I don’t realize I’m wishing a dead man H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y-!-! until a [...]
On the Atlantic’s other side, I fell in love with balls — on boys and soccer pitches. I studied and lost my virginity in Canterbury, England, then moved to London for work on an employment visa. I wrote a Masters paper, When the Welcome Mat is Removed: The Rise of Anti-Immigrant Sentiment in Western Europe, analyzing [...]
You say Generation Y. I say Millennials. Po-TAY-toe. Po-TAH-toe. Research shows us folks born in the very late 1970s / early 1980s are calling the whole “traditional” marriage thing off: Barely half of all American adults are married, a precipitating downward trend tied to both culture and economics. Millennials care more about being a babymama [...]
Description from the creators: A couple confronts the horrific consequences of same-sex marriage. A parody “paid for by the coalition of people whose lives are ruined whenever other people are treated equally.”
“Some people say that having sex is like playing cards. If you don’t have a great partner, you’d better have a great hand.” That’s Karen B. K. Chan in Jam, 2013. Born in Hong Kong. Living in Canada. Spoken word poet. Founder of Fluid Exchange. Check her out, folks! (Hat tip to Lisa Wade for [...]
I lost my XXX-Flick Viewing virginity with an attractive, dimpled, dirty blond, Chuck. Chicago. Summer 1999. While drinking cheap beer, we watched an even cheaper Spice World parody, 5 Sins, featuring a bunch of busty chicks pretending to form a girl band. It was tons of fun though, oddly, I can’t remember what specifically happened in the movie. [...]
Highlight of the 2013 Academy Awards? Gail McInnes‘ response to Seth MacFarlane’s Oscars opening number We Saw Your Boobs. ”I’m still busy writing the ‘I saw your penis‘ song, including Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Bruce Willis, Colin Farrell, Kevin Bacon.” She continues by saying few actresses are taken “seriously” in Hollywood unless they show their boobs. Maybe it’s more [...]
NAME: Álvaro Vázquez Garcia NATIONALITY: Spain CURRENT CLUB: Getafe CF POSITION: Striker NUMBER: 7
Esther Perel wrote one of those books. You know, the ones that rocket into the pop culture lexicon and — for better or worse — change the way we talk to each other about hooking up. The Game, The Ethical Slut, Fifty Shades of Grey, Sex at Dawn, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, [...]
