Every week, all year long, we tell you all about what’s going on in the world of sex and love. Well, not quite all — you might notice that we steer clear of stories about sex crimes (because that’s not the kind of sex this site is about) and stories about teachers sleeping with their students (because we’re not Fox). But everything else, you’ll find here. Not everything we report on pleases us — in fact, some of it straight-up pisses us off. Here are the headlines and studies that depressed us most in the past year. Tune in tomorrow for the news that put a smile back on our faces.
- Economically dependent men are more likely to cheat on their female partners. We remain unconvinced that this is actual proven fact rather than just dubious study, but either way: boo!
- That “six-feet-tall” hottie you’re corresponding with online? Yeah, he’s totally lying.
- Herpes is twice as common in women than men, and three times as common in blacks than whites. A massive 48% of new herpes cases are among black women.
- Some women may have lower sex drives because they experience guilty feelings about being sexually aroused.
- Researchers at King’s College London claim there is no evidence for the existence of the G-spot beyond a woman’s imagination. In other words, please put down your G-spotters and go home. (For the record, we don’t buy this.)
