10. Blast From the Past: Could Facebook Destroy Your Marriage?
We all know how the story goes: Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl—blah, blah, blah. Save that version for Hollywood. How about this one? Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Boy grows up and marries someone else. But then Boy rekindles the friendship with his former flame on Facebook—and ends up totally wrecking his marriage.
In the end, we’re only human. We all romanticize the past, men and women alike. And no memories are more potent than those first youthful fumblings. But now exes of all stripes—high school sweethearts, college lovers, former hookups—are popping up on Facebook.
So the question is: Should you or shouldn't you reach out to them on FB?
9. Home Remedies for Great Sex
Good sex has to do with one’s mindset more than anything else. So, if you want to ramp up your partner’s interest, you need to keep their mind on the prize. That doesn’t mean you have to pop porn into every DVD player or wear a loincloth or French maid’s get-up all of the time. It just means being more aware of what’s right in front of you and just how sexy those things can be.
So here are a few things to help you get in the mood – and you’ll find them right in your own house:
Pepper mill – Remember that “Sex and the City” episode when the waiter comes to the table holding a large pepper mill just as the girls are discussing the size of one of their lover’s packages? Why not offer your partner a grind or two of the hot stuff with a wink and a smile? Believe me, they’ll get the message loud and clear.
Dishwashing liquid – Warm, sudsy water can be very sexy, especially when hands meet beneath it before any dirty dishes have hit the basin. Ask your partner to check the temp for you and then meet his or her hand below. A brief hand massage served up with a devious glance and you’ll have your partner in lather in no time.
8. For Extra Summer Sizzle, Go Bare Down There
Summer means skin, no two ways about it. And there's something wonderfully sexy about soft, smooth skin.
That can especially be true when it comes to the nether regions. But going bare can be a whole lot of fun too.
It can incredibly exciting to get a real look at what your partner is packing. (And guys, rumor has it that the goods in question tend to appear larger when shaved or trimmed. I'm just saying...)
And as for the fairer sex, your partner is likely to be very turned on at being able to witness you becoming aroused.
7. Biggest Sex Mistakes
Sex … it’s natural. Do what feels right and you are probably in the ballpark, right? Wrong.
Here are some of the biggest mistakes men and women make:
1. They jackhammer. Pounding like an oil rig will only make your partner feel like you are using her for friction, and mess up her hair beyond repair. Yes, it looks like good "action" sex on screen, but in real life you need to mix it up a little.
1. They assume nighttime is the best time for being intimate. Hormonally, women have an easier time achieving an orgasm in the morning. Also, by the time night falls (read: end of work day, kids, homework, dinner, cleanup) you both may be too tired. Try morning sex with the blinds closed on the weekends when you can sleep in.
6. The Joys of Oral Sex
People love oral sex. It’s ultimately irresistible. But this once taboo behavior can still be a tough sell in the bedroom. What gives?
It’s actually only recently that oral sex has become widely acceptable. Pursued by people of all orientations, oral sex is a very common practice: 70-90 percent of men and women report that they’ve engaged in such behavior.
And who can blame them? Many women love becoming the center of oral attention. This isn’t only because it feels incredible to have somebody deliver the ultimate kiss, but it’s critical to her orgasm as well.
5. Vibrators: A Girl’s Friend or Foe?
Can you become addicted to a vibrator? It’s hard to fault a woman for wanting her vibe. Not only is it a reliable date that’s all about her pleasuring, but the orgasms induced can be more intense and quickly attainable. It’s also time efficient, doesn’t require getting all dolled up and can’t break her heart.
There are a few reasons to try a vibrator, including clitoral stimulation and body response. What are those, you ask?

2. Top Sex Myths You Need to Know
People like to think they know everything there is to know about sex, but there are a lot of sex-related myths out there that still have lovers confused.
Like the fact that sex drives diminish with menopause.
In fact, “many women maintain hormonal balance and interest in sex through menopause. And, pregnancy and menstruation are no longer a concern, spontaneity can reign. Also, they are typically more confident and knowledgeable about what they want, so sex has the potential to be better than ever,” according to Dr. Alicia Stanton, board-certified OB/GYN and the author of “Hormone Harmony.”

When Jennifer Love Hewitt decided to decorate her nether regions with Swarovski crystals earlier this year, and then went on national TV to discuss it, our sexpert couldn’t resist trying it herself.
The trend is called ‘vajazzling’ – you know, like ‘Bedazzling?’ Only this is no denim vest enhanced by a handheld machine that you can get for just $19.95, to quote our sexpert.
With vajazzling, you go into a high-end salon, get waxed bare, and are bejewled below the belt.
