We Need to Talk About Women Who Regret Motherhood

It's hard enough for women to talk about not wanting to become mothers at all, or to admit it isn't all its cracked up to be, but imagine the experience for women who straight-up discover it is not a good fit, a troubling experience, a series of disappointments, a bum deal?

Over 22 Years Old? Men Find You Less and Less Attractive Every Day.

Fact: Over age 22, you're all dried up. Last week's bagels, yesterday's baguette.

And if us gals have our way about the girls, we will be monopolizing the conversation about our boobs from here to eternity, which is kind of nice, seeing as how we've had so little say in their presentation up to now. » 9/13/14 2:00pm 9/13/14 2:00pm

Jessica, just want to say thanks for taking a chance on an unknown, and standing behind the work we do. You created a place where it was OK to take risks and to try to say something true, even if it wasn't always popular. That takes guts!

​How to Get Over an Ex By Obsessing About Them Even More

Conventional wisdom usually instructs jilted lovers to do anything but fixate on their ex: Get busy, volunteer, sleep around, move to Finland.

Just Because His Name Is Sexy Doesn't Mean He Is

I know what you'll say: Yes, there is such a thing as a sexy name. Names can be sexy, just as words can be sexy! But after many long, serious minutes of thinking, I have concluded that it is not so. People are sexy. The sexiness of a person's name is an afterthought, assigned in retrospect after seeing, hearing or… » 8/27/14 1:30pm 8/27/14 1:30pm

Fair-Skinned People Are FINALLY Beginning to Embrace Being Pale

Finally, at long last, it seems people who once flocked to tanning beds for a ritual equatorial bronzing have begun to accept that there is no such thing as a healthy tan, and that achieving the color + texture of a buckskin jacket is not worth all the future skin cancer, wrinkles, and newly acquired shame it… » 8/26/14 3:30pm 8/26/14 3:30pm

This 100-Year-Old Sex Therapist Is Just as Wise, Awesome as You'd Hope

Men Are From Bacon, Women Are From Lemons

Did you know men and women are different, because they are. They are so different that they even like different things. Men like meat, visual stuff. Women like lemons, feelings. It's a wonder it ever works, because meat and pictures and lemons and feelings go together like a tornado in a teacup without any good smells… » 8/20/14 1:00pm 8/20/14 1:00pm
