5 Guys We Won’t Go Home With [Friday Faves]

5 Guys We Won’t Go Home With [Friday Faves]

It's a well-known fact that guys will go home with just about anything when they're drunk. It's not that they're desperate, they're just...well, guys. And guys like sex. So it's not surprising that you don't exactly have to be a genius/supermodel to have a special (or not-so-special) one-night engagement with a dude at the bar.

Sophomore year doesn’t sound as exciting as last year and doesn’t include a 21st birthday celebration like our fellow juniors and seniors, but there are plenty of things we do have to look forward to this upcoming year. Here is what I’m going to be up to this year, maybe you’ll get a few ideas, as well!

Are You A Hook Up Or Girlfriend Material? Ask a Naked Guy! [Candy Dish]

So you've seen this guy a few times, but you just can't figure out what he really think about you. Does he see you as an occasional hookup buddy or does he really want to get to know you and possibly date you? I think the easiest answer comes in the amount of effort he puts into seeing you.

10 Biggest Celebrity Hot Messes Ever

Watching a celebrity reach their lowest starts off as an entertaining story until you realize that yes, they are a person too. This week, Lindsay Lohan was arrested for hitting a man with her car, and Amanda Bynes reportedly locked herself in a dressing room for two hours and yelled, in addition to getting in numerous car accidents.

5 Things I Don’t Want To Try [Sexy Time]

5 Things I Don’t Want To Try [Sexy Time]

I'm really supportive of sexual experimentation...for other people. I want everyone to have awesome sex, as often as they want, with as many people as they want, doing the things they want. In my own personal life, though? I'm pretty unadventurous (ie, boring). This extends way beyond my sex life too - I haven't switched up my hair in months, I tend to order the same things whenever I go out to restaurants, I haven't tried to make new friends in an eternity...basically, I think 90 percent of everything is trash, so when I stumble upon something I like, I cling to it for dear life.

Kissing After Oral: Yay or Nay? [He Said/She Said]

Oral sex protocol is a seriously opinion-dividing topic, and I totally get why. A lot of guys just don't like the idea of going mouth to mouth with someone whose lips have just touched their junk, the same way loads of girls don't want to get a taste of their own downstairs area.

The Complete Lindsay Lohan Ultimate Hot Mess Timeline

Lindsay Lohan was arrested again last night. She allegedly clipped a man in the knee with her car and he claims she was slurring her words and had been boozing. She was arrested for peacing out after a passenger made sure her car was okay. This could seriously wreck her parole from her jewelry theft charge, because you're really not supposed to be committing crimes while you're on parole, but LiLo said YOLO.

Does Online Dating Make The First Date Feel More Important? [Ask A Dude]

I know a bunch of other girls who’ve ended up in relationships with guys online, but I think the problem for me is there seems to be a lot of pressure on the first date. It feels like you’re trying to imagine yourself in a relationship with him after spending all of 2 hours knowing him drinking at a bar. Why are people getting so relationship obsessed over one date? Are they or is this just something I keep feeling like I’m pressured to buy into?

I wasn't at all surprised that Seth made some easy (albeit harsh) jokes at Ryan's expense, but I was pretty surprised at how well Ryan handled it. Like the champion (literally) he is, Ryan shrugged it off as all in good fun and wants his own shot to perform on the show.
