10 Awful Songs To Hook Up To

This post is brought to you by our friends at Gurl.

You know what I love? All these articles all over the internet about great songs to hook up to. And I don’t love them for the reason you might believe: I love how awful some of their selections are. Sure, some are great. I think that The XX have some great sexy slow-down indie tunes and there are some classic Usher songs that make you want to fan yourself. More »

Contiki Tours Are Not Happy I Outed Their Traffic Light Dating System

Contiki Tours Are Not Happy I Outed Their Traffic Light Dating System

>A few days ago, I wrote about Contiki Tours’ policy of asking participants to identify their dating status as “red light” or “green light” before departing for a trip. The guided tour company evidently didn’t appreciate their policy being made public, because they took the post down from their official website. Luckily, the original page – an AP article about Contiki that the company had posted on their website – is still in Google cache here. More »

Have You Ever Suffered a Sex Injury?

Have You Ever Suffered a Sex Injury?

Last week, my friend was telling me about s0me awesome sex he had. Unfortunately, the story ended with them slamming the bed into the wall so hard that he cracked his head. Luckily, he’s okay, but it’s not the first story I’ve heard about injuries sustained mid-sexytimes. In high school, I was terrified of giving head because I heard ten too many stories about girls whose braces got stuck on dudes’ pubic hair. (Side note: I do not think that ever really happened; the story is just a way of trying to keep kids from messing around with each other.) More »

Sexing the Strangler: When Kink Goes Too Far

Sexing the Strangler: When Kink Goes Too Far

Thomas was a writer who was working on his second book and was an adjunct professor at Columbia. I think it was mostly the professor part I liked. He wasn’t my “type,” at all. I didn’t find him exceptionally attractive or witty, but he was so damn smart I just couldn’t get enough of him. Sometimes when we were fooling around he’d recite his doctoral thesis, and honestly, it was pretty hot; even if the premise of his thesis still remains a mystery to me to this day.

Having a few years on me, and several more sexual experiences than I under his belt, he was really adventurous in bed and always looking to push the limits. It seemed harmless at first: adding some toys into the mix, taking turns with tying each other up… basic stuff that we all try out at some point or another. One day he asked me what my “safe” word was. Having never needed a safe word in my life, but being slightly versed in the world of BDSM, I knew what he meant and laughingly said: “apple.” I was eating an apple when he asked me the question.
