Let’s be real– Everyone has a list of things they eventually hope to try in their sex life. One could even call it a sexual bucket list. This list can include anything from toys you want to play with to positions you want to try, even places where you’d like to get down and dirty. And while I’m pro-Carpe Diem and think having a sexual bucket list is about the coolest thing ever, my germaphobic instincts kick in when researching some of the things on my own list. Of course, having fun is important, but safety and health come first. It’s important to be aware of the risks being taken when having sex in places that may not be as clean or sanitary as your bed is. I’ve put together a list of locations I think should be blacklisted from sexy time .*Sigh* no matter how fun they may be. Continue Reading
We all have that friend that is around all the time, but as soon as they are in a new relationship, they completely disappear. And then sometimes… That person is us. When we’re so consumed with that feeling of newfound love, it’s hard to remember all of the other things in our life that bring us joy on a regular basis, like our friends for example, our hobbies or even our families.

Ahh, Valentine’s Day. A holiday centered around celebrating love, new and old. Restaurants are booked solid, florists are shelling out thousands of bouquets, and Hallmark is selling truckloads of cards filled with a variety of ways to say ‘I love you.’ It’s very sweet and romantic, but for those of us who aren’t part of a relationship, well… it can kind of suck.

The holidays are upon us, the weather is getting colder (in most places), and tweets everywhere are hashtagging #cuddleweather. Seems like the perfect time of year to grab a cup of hot cocoa and snuggle up with your significant other watching Netflix, or in my case… with my Yoshi pillow pet. This holiday season, my sleigh’s flying solo.
For some, it feels like the end of the world to be alone around this time of year. It seems like around every corner there’s some advertisement, song on the radio, or pesky relative reminding you that you’re single. As for me, I’m rejoicing! Being in a relationship around the holidays isn’t all romance and jingle bells like Hallmark makes it out to be; it can actually be pretty stressful. Here are some things I am glad to be missing out on this holiday season.

I discovered it was because, honestly, I didn’t know what my destination was. Once I explored myself though, it was like getting hit in the face with a big, fat DUH. So, I learned where I was heading, and things were that much better. Continue Reading
