Question of the Week: What’s Your Number?

January 19, 2012

32 Comments

The movie What’s Your Number? (just released on DVD) is based on the totally annoying premise that a woman (played by the usually much funnier and better-than-this Anna Faris) freaks out when she reads a magazine article and discovers that her sexual body count (20) is twice the average. So she decides that rather than just carrying on with her dating and sex life like a normal human being, or becoming celibate, she will rifle through her exes to see if one of them could be The One — thereby not upping her number any further.

So, here’s our question for you: Do you (or did you ever) keep track of your “number”? Do you have it on the tip of your tongue? Could you work it out, if pressed? Were you ever bothered by your number (in either direction), or what other people might think of your number?

Leave your response in the comments section below (feel free to share your age, gender, relationship status, etc., if it’s relevant to your answer).



Question of the Week: When, If Ever, Is Nursing in Public Too In-Your-Face?

January 5, 2012

9 Comments

After a woman was recently asked to move to the changing rooms at a Texas Target to nurse her child, she and other breastfeeding advocates organized a national nurse-in at Target stores across the country last week on December 28th. A writer-friend of ours, Amy Keyishian, went to her local store and took a, shall we say, spirited picture of herself nursing her kid (above), which caused quite a, shall we say, stir. Her writer friend, Marjorie Ingall, jumped to her defense in what we would call a spot-on analysis of why so many people freak out whenever a boob gets whipped out in public to feed a baby. So, what do you think? Should nursing be a private thing between mother and child? Is public breastfeeding okay, so long as it’s not in-your-face (i.e. not at a restaurant without a boob-burka or, say, while pushing your kid in a Target cart)? Or do we as a society need to accept the fact that breasts aren’t just sexual objects to be ogled by men and all chill the fuck out?

What Should Everyone Try In Bed At Least Once?

November 8, 2011

1 Comment

We’re working on a magazine article about things that every woman should try in bed at least once — your sexual bucket list, if you will. Have any of you tried any of the following things in bed? If so, will you write to us and tell us about it? Even just a sentence or two? We’re happy to keep you anonymous if you prefer. Bonus points if you’re British, as this is for a British magazine! We’re looking for stories about:

  • Have you ever role-played in bed? Have you ever done it in costume? Have you ever been inspired by Halloween costumes and let that carry over into a little saucy role-playing?
  • Have you dabbled in a little domination and submission? You know, playing slove, a bit of light bondage, bossing each other around in bed…?
  • Ladies, have you ever consciously had sex like a guy? You can interpret this question however you see fit!
  • Have you ever decided to forget about your (and your partner’s) orgasm for a night? You know, just focusing on how things feel without worrying about the destination?
  • Have you ever decided to turn up the volume in bed? We’re normally against letting porn dictate the way you have sex, but sometimes, making a lot of noise in bed (and shouting out really naughty things) can make the sex feel oh so dirty, in a good way. Know what we’re talking about?

If any of the above sounds like sex you’ve had — or sex you’d like to have — let us know! You can reach us using our contact form on the site here. Just be sure to let us know (a) a first name we can use for you and (b) your age. And please include an email address so we can reach you for follow-up. Thanks a million!

When in a relationship do you start to leave the bathroom door open — after the first sleepover? First sex? First anal sex? After you’ve met the parents? Never? (And yes, we know it depends on what’s happening in said bathroom… feel free to make a distinction in your answers!)

Poll: Who’s the Sexiest Republican Candidate?

September 22, 2011

3 Comments

We’re focusing on just the male candidates here, so even if you’re a straight dude, you can still pick who you think has the most sex appeal and it won’t make you gay. We almost included the option “How can you put “Republican” and “sexy” in the same sentence?” but figured you’d all vote for it, so we wanted to force the issue:

Feel free to share your age, gender, relationship status, sexuality, etc., if you feel that it’s relevant to the answer. So, this week’s question:

(“None” is a perfectly acceptable answer, by the way!) Oh, and please do explain your answer, list exceptions, blah blah blah.

Okay… dish!
