POLL: What Do You Think of the Band “Ninja Sex Party”?

We just discovered (thanks to the Medium profile by Shaun Raviv) Ninja Sex Party, a comedy band featuring “Danny Sexbang” and “Ninja Brian” that rocks with earnest irony about sex and peen and high school dinosaurs and dragons and more peen.

Whether you’re married, living together, or committed for a couple of years, it’s perfectly normal for the sex and passion to wane.

Who’s the Least Sexy Republican Presidential Candidate?

We thought about asking who the sexiest Republican presidential candidate was, but that seemed like an unanswerable question. “Least sexy” seems much more do-able…and more competitive. At last count, there were over 30(!) declared Republican candidates. We’ve narrowed them down to the biggest players. Polldaddy wouldn’t allow more than 11 options, so we had to […]

Your Call
Should You Throw Away Old Love Letters?

Recently, Em sang the praises of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, the New York Times bestseller by Japanese decluttering goddess, Marie Kondo. I didn’t think Em’s house could be any tidier, but after adopting the KonMari Method of domestic organization, it’s even more annoyingly impressive!

What Did You Think of Jeremy Renner’s “Globes” Joke?

screen shot from the Golden Globes on NBC J. Lo wore one of her, shall we say, memorable numbers to the 2015 Golden Globes, the kind of outfit that draws the unblinking stare of even the gayest gay man like greedy raiders of a lost ark. So when she and Jeremy Renner were about to […]

Poll: Is Ben Affleck More or Less Attractive After His Appearance on “Real Time”?

Okay, we know this is a stretch for a sex & relationships website, but we just are having so much fun reading all the debates over last week’s episode of Real Time, in which host Bill Maher and guest Sam Harris, a “new atheist” author, clashed with actor Ben Affleck over whether it’s appropriate to […]

POLL: Who’s Right About Miley – Sinead O’Conner OR Amanda Palmer?

When Miley Cyrus said her “Wrecking Ball” video (in which she cries into the camera, before getting it on with a wrecking ball and a sledgehammer) was inspired by Sinead O’Connor‘s classic and subtle “Nothing Compares 2 U” video (that title is pre-texting!), O’Conner wrote an open letter to Miley, warning her that’s she’s being […]
