Illustrated Guide: What To Do If Someone's Sleeping In Your Bed

Recently, a lady friend of mine expressed that she’s enjoying the newfound freedom of being single (i.e., doing it with whoever she pleases) but she can’t get comfortable sleeping beside effective strangers. Soon after, another lady friend of mine shared the sentiment: the only real bummer to no-strings-attached sex is the problem of what to do after. Kick him out? Move to the couch? Alienate him until he flees? To aid my nice lady friends, I have written and illustrated this helpful guide, “What To Do If Someone’s Sleeping In Your Bed” (and, also, how to get them the hell out).

Real Talk: How Do You Stay STD And Baby-Free?

You know what’s great? Avoiding unplanned pregnancies. It’s probably the best thing about being a responsible adult, besides maybe eating cake for dinner sometimes.

Real Talk: Do Men Want To Put It In Your Butt?

Real Talk: Do Men Want To Put It In Your Butt?

It was odd assembling responses for this Real Talk about whether or not men want to have anal sex* with women. I didn’t really know what to expect  but I did feel kind of uncomfortable asking a bunch of random guys (some friends, some not) whether or not they were into it. I’m not going to provide any more commentary other than this: I was surprised by how varied the responses were. So, here’s 10 guys offering up their opinions on “anal play” as it is sometimes called.
