I came across this sexual bucket list the other day — 50 Things To Try Sexually Before You Die — and I must admit, I was intrigued. Mostly, because I'm no novice when it comes to trying new stuff in bed. I have a sordid pre-husband history, plus when you've been married to the same guy for 13 years, you have to keep things interesting. Turns out, I've tried nearly everything on the list. (You're welcome.) So to save you time, I've narrowed the list down to what's worth it (Erotica!) and what's not (Whipped cream = Strong pass.) Read more

A new study found that women with a lot of male friends had more sex - not with the male friends, but with their boyfriends.
Well ladies, it turns out having a lot of guy friends isn’t just good for drinking beer on Thursday nights and playing video games.
A new study from Oakland University, recently published in the Journal of Comparative Psychology, found that women with a lot of men in their life — like friends or co-workers — have more sex with their boyfriends compared with couples in which the female partner has fewer male influences.

Men are going to love the results of this study.
Playing the field? It could be helping you live longer, guys.
Many men try to get their number of sexual partners up in order to have bragging rights, but there might actually be a health benefit to it. A new study says men who had multiple sexual partners may be protecting themselves from cancer. Read more

Suzanne Samin tries to erase some misconceptions about bisexual women.
Tuesday, Sept. 23, was Bisexual Visibility Day, and man, do people need to made aware of us. We may not be a big group -- only 0.7 percent of Americans identify as bisexual -- but that doesn't mean we aren't here. In fact, our small numbers just might represent the fact that as a group, bisexual people are often especially stigmatized.
Don't get it twisted: Bisexual individuals can definitely benefit from heterosexual privilege, in so far as they have the ability to be in "socially acceptable" relationships, where as gay and lesbian people may not.
But from being told our orientation doesn't exist, to being accused of lying to get attention, the experience of coming out as bisexual comes with its own list of unique difficulties. The misconceptions about what it means to be bi are so common that even Anna Paquin had to school Larry King on bisexuality when he asked her some quintessentially ignorant questions earlier this year.

Megan Reynolds ranks ten places to have sex from best to worst.
Most people have sex in the pedestrian enclaves of their bedroom, on a Wednesday night, after prime-time television but before “The Daily Show.” It’s a simple affair, but it’s beautiful, because it works. The bedroom is a safe space with ALL the creature comforts you want when you’re doing it: clean sheets, water in plentiful abundance, all the lube you’d ever need, and at the end of everything, a bathroom you can scurry to when the deed is done so you don’t get a bladder or yeast infection. For most, this kind of sexual adventurousness is fine. There are some, however, that comb this earth, armed with a sexual bucket list, intent on doing it in any space two people can feasibly fit. If you find yourself with one of these sexual Lewis and Clarks, be prepared. Arm yourself with this list of places to have sex, ranked from best to worst, and be ready to face whatever challenge they’ve got in mind head on. Read more

Science says 60 percent of women are attracted to other women. Are you one of them?
Like most women, I have no shame in admitting that I find other females attractive. I have even admitted to being open to experimentation ("Of course I would sleep with Halle Berry! It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity"). For women, it's perfectly acceptable to be a little bi-curious (cue every male fantasy), and according to research, it's the norm.
A study reveals that women's sexual preferences tend to be a gray area (yep, identity confusion wasn't just for those college dorm days). In fact, researchers at Boise State University found that in a group of heterosexual women, 60 percent were physically interested in other women, 45 percent made out with a woman in the past, and 50 percent had fantasies about the same sex.
