When you have babies and small kids, people give you so much advice — breast-feed, bottle-feed, co-sleep, use an infant straight-jacket, get an electric swing that achieves as much noise and velocity as a rocket — that you can't even remember it all. But one thing I do remember is that everyone insisted we make time for a "date night" at regular intervals.
In comedic improvisation, the principle of "yes and" means that first you agree with your partner's premise, and then you add to it. Without this essential principle, the scene couldn't go anywhere. And while applying "yes and" to real life is a bit of a business-world cliché, I've found that it's a great way to redirect potential arguments into jovial banter, and keep everyone on the same team.
Some people have problems that require delicate advice from a qualified professional. Others just need a random a guy on the internet to kick 'em in the teeth (with honesty, that is). I'm the latter. Welcome back to Tough Love.
Like so many other aspects of female sexuality, the G-spot is typically -- and unfairly -- thought of as mysterious, elusive, and complex. In reality, it's not that complicated. It's a part of a woman's body that -- for some women -- can create a lot of pleasure. End of story. Here's how to find her G-spot, and what to do with it once you do.
No, it’s not a variation on the 'fist pump' for female sports athletes. Nor is it the lady equivalent of a 'penis pump' for tiny, tiny vaginas. Rather, a pussy pump is the name given to an ingenious sexual device designed with physical and aesthetic pleasure in mind.
It might look like a slightly unusual oxygen mask you put on your face, but a pussy pump sits, as you might imagine, over the vagina and/or clitoris. Here's everything you need to know.
What is love (baby don't hurt me)? It's a tough question to answer and people have been asking it since the dawn of civilisation. Perhaps the best way to identify love is to learn what it's not. This beyond-hokey instructional video from 1950 actually helps draw a clearer line between love and infatuation.
Most people's sex lives could be charitably described as "vanilla" - which is totally fine! But if you clicked on this story, I'm going to assume you're flirting with the idea of introducing something spicier.
The world of BDSM isn't just for leather festishists and 50 Shades fans: anybody can get involved - and they totally should. Here's everything you need to know about getting acquainted with the kinkier side of carnal pleasure.
Dating terminology has gotten a lot broader - and a lot weirder - since the advent of smartphones, social media and online dating. It seems like every other day there's another pithy metaphor, slang word or acronym to jot down or brush up on.
Whether you're trying to keep up in the Gen Y dating scene or just want to decipher your teenage kid's wholly alien vocabulary, this glossary of love lingo is here to help.
For the past two weeks, Australian politics have been dominated by the explosive revelation that Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce engaged in an extramarital affair with a staffer who is now expecting his child. The particulars of the relationship have been roundly criticised by both sides of politics, with several ministers and former politicians calling for Joyce's sacking.
