You can be raised by very nice people — even very nice, very responsible people — and still be raised with totally self-defeating values about money, work, education, navigating institutions, and planning your life. More
New couples often use a vacation as an early relationship test. The couple that can travel together, they surmise, can stay together. But even the most time-tested couples can return home from a trip exhausted from the jet lag — and the arguments, the bickering, and the general disgust. Sure, the stress of travel will get to you. But that doesn’t mean it has to get to your relationship. Consider these how-to steps travelers insurance for your next trip together — to ensure it won’t be your last. More
There are few times in life when you can openly announce to the world that you are going on a sex retreat and people will respond with glee and encouragement. But after your wedding, pretty much everyone you know will be happy for you to spend as much time as you’d like attempting to procreate while on your honeymoon. More
>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

Time Magazine has an article up about “ultra-gay” hotels and resorts popping up throughout the country and, indeed, the world — and I can think of few reasons that any self-respecting person would stay anywhere else.
First of all, from the sounds of it they are going to be decorated to the nines, and in the utmost of style. Lords South Beach Hotel is described as having “brightly hued decor, trio of plunge pools and Absolut Vodka–partnered bar,” and custom-designed gray and white uniforms by Levi’s. Some of them will be clothing optional. More
I have several adult friends who love Disney World. They are in their 20s, successful, and could easily jet off to Paris or Milan for their work vacations – but instead, they hit up Disney and stand in line for Space Mountain right next to a bunch of suburban parents with their kids. While I’m pretty laissez-faire about what adults do with their time, I admit I find it a little strange when grownups still do “kid stuff.” That said, I am strongly considering going to Harry Potter Land, so there you go.
