In honor of the 10th anniversary of her Twilight series, Stephenie Meyers has just released a new edition, which includes a 400+ paged reimagining of the first novel with the genders reversed called Life and Death. The purpose of the new version is to prove to the world that Bella’s character wasn’t an anti-feminist damsel-in-distress, as […]

5 Terms Every Parent Should Add to Their Sex-Ed Vocabulary

Cory Silverberg is elevating in-home sex-ed to an art form, one kick-ass book at a time. His first kids’ book on reproduction, called WHAT MAKES A BABY (for preschoolers through 2nd-graders), combines inclusive language, helpful descriptions, and bright, bold and beautiful illustrations by Fiona Smyth (that get us all nostalgic for “Free to Be You and Me“) […]

Hot Biblical Erotica: Song of Solomon

The Old Testament is one racy tome, full of love, lust, rape, incest, murder, and — perhaps worst of all — masturbation (known then as Onanism).  If you can make it through all the repetitive and contradictory proscriptions, unscientific explanations, and general millennia-old nonsense, you’ll be rewarded a little more than midway through with the Song […]

20 Quotes That Celebrate Sex in Old Age

Sex in old age — or even middle age — is typically a punch line: it’s gross, it’s non-existent, it’s weird, it’s comical, it’s “like trying to shoot pool with a rope,” as George Burns once said.

Everything We Needed to Know About Love and Sex We Learned from Dr. Seuss

As the mothers of two small children (two each, that is), we have spent many hours reading the books of Dr. Seuss aloud. And the more we read, the more we realize how freakin’ wise he was…about everything. (Yes, we admit it: We were more excited by the discovery of a new Dr. Seuss book, […]

The Key to Understanding Bad Boys: They’re Narcissists

Bad boys — and bad girls — are sexy, alluring, intense, and challenging. They draw you in, and then inevitably push you away. Trying to earn their love and approval can become addictive. But it’s a losing game. Because, according to Dr. Craig Malkin, they’re often unhealthy narcissists who, by definition, can’t — or at […]

How to Have “Artisanal Sex” (No Farmer’s Market Required)

by Christine Schoenwald for YourTango Dr Ruth has created a new kind of sex called Artisanal Sex, which she seems pretty excited about on Twitter. We’re into it (unlike her recent unfortunate comments about date rape). At 87 years old, Dr. Ruth Wertheimer has a lot going on. Actually, she has a lot going on for any age, including a new book The […]

The Pros & Cons of a Wife Bonus

It’s the topic that just keeps on giving! First, we wrote about the new book, “The Primates of Park Avenue” (actually, we imagined several responses to the book about rich men giving their wives bonuses for “good performances” in poem form). Then we had to feature The Best of #WifeBonus on Twitter — because it […]

Why a Wife Bonus Isn’t As Bad As You Think

MVP commenter Johnny wrote the following in response to our post “The Best of #WifeBonus on Twitter”: Is there not just a touch of sour grapes about all this? Because I’ll tell you my main feeling on the matter: envy. Green, ugly envy. I wish I had as much money as those people. I wish […]

The Best of #WifeBonus on Twitter This Week

Earlier this week we posted our poem, “13 Ways of Looking at a Wife Bonus,” in response to the news that some Upper East Side stay-at-home moms, married to hedge fund managers and bankers and otherwise rich men, allegedly get end of year “wife bonuses” for good housekeeping (amongst other things). We’re not the only ones a little […]
