Top 10 Things We Learned from EMandLO.com Commenters This Year
  1. Size doesn’t matter. Skills do.
  2. The Nuva Ring is one of the most confusing birth control methods out there. (Either that, or EMandLO.com was the only place online in 2009 giving out decent info on it.)
  3. If you want support for your cheating ways, don’t come here.
  4. A lot of straight guys are into a little anal play.
  5. If you’re 38 and want a baby but he’s not ready, he never will be (at least not with you).
  6. Sex on the first date is not a relationship killer (so long as your first date isn’t with an asshole).
  7. People against circumcision are better at arguing their position than people who are for it.
  8. Surprise, surprise: Guys are very happy to go into great, descriptive detail about what makes a great BJ.
  9. “Melon balling” is officially the new name for “titty fucking.”
  10. Blue balls exist.

Top 6 things I learned about Em & Lo in 2009:

6) They don’t care for Anna Paquin’s ‘face twitching” style of acting

Yeah, (number eleven) and hairy balls are cute.


I’m with impoddity. Just those 10 posts were informative and there are scores more that were just as interesting. Thanks for a wonderful year.
