To shave or not to shave? It’s a hairy situation. Three sex columnists give the low-down on trimming downtown.
“RED ALERT! RED ALERT! I HAVE A BOY OVER PLEASE DO NOT COME HOME UNTIL AFTER 10! I REPEAT RED ALERT!” I have received this text from one of my roommates in the dorms.
When you’re living in the dorms, sex can be inconvenient — roommates, RAs, bothersome friends, small beds, and thin walls contribute to the problem.
The idea of checking one’s phone while hooking up with another person is slightly horrifying, in theory. But in actuality, you are conditioned to notice your phone start ringing, and this may not be such a bad thing.
Yes, it’s funny to see your partner try to keep a straight face while talking to whoever is calling during your “intimate act,” but that gets old, quickly.
It’s been a fun night, drinks have been had, and the two of you have safely gotten back to the apartment. Things are getting hot and heavy — real hot and heavy. Ten minutes go by and then you both suddenly hear a ringing noise. It’s your cell phone, and […]
Reading all the juicy details of someone’s experience or the enlightening “how to” sections of Hustler or even Penthouse, is what has inspired me on my journey to explore sex through writing. I want to accomplish so much with this column and the accompanying columns of the other sex writers. […]
