The “friend zone.” We’ve all heard of it, and some claim to have been there (although it’s existence is debatable). The connotation remains at a negative.
What is the “friend zone,” really? It should be an awesome hangout spot for you and your buddies to go – equipped with a bar, arcade games, and maybe a trampoline (a girl can dream, right?) – but it’s not.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s usually couples who get all the attention. Romantic dinners, nights out on the town, a predictable new installment of 50 Shades of Grey…we’ve all heard it before. So if you’re in the mood to celebrate more than a darling date, we may have just the solution for you.
Hey, you. Yes, you—exhausted, resentful, sexless mom of three, I’m talking to you.
I know. There’s magenta Sharpie on the wall, a 3-inch layer of dog hair on the floor, and you just stepped on something slimy that you think was cheese (you’ll check it later). You haven’t had a haircut (other than when you took the scissors to your own hair) in eight months and your feet are so calloused, you could run the Kentucky Derby and no one would look twice. Every part of that is true.

The Adult Novelty Manufacturer’s Expo.

From comfort and connection to chemistry and more, each of these elements pour into the grand-ultimate component of all— satisfaction.
It’s the start of the new year and people are flooding the gyms, starting to eat healthy, and work on developing new and better habits. Most of us know that when it comes to making resolutions, once it hits February, they fall by the wayside.
Instead of making the typical false promises to yourself (special shout out to those that actually stick to them), why not make promises you actually want to keep? What kind of promises? Bedroom ones, of course!
You might be snuggling up under the blankets during these winter months, or maybe you’re trying to stay cool during your tropical holiday vacation. Whatever the temperature is outside, it’s always fun to play with the temperature between the sheets.
There are a lot of reasons to have sex over the holidays.
