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.

Swiping the V-Card

It's been hailed as the holy grail of sex: the v-card. Taking someone's virginity has historically been a much-sought after sexual experience (this is going as far back as Medieval times). The thought of a pure, untouched individual succumbing to your sexual prowess...well, I can see the appeal. However, the build-up in media and society certainly falls short in reality. I should know - I've swiped more than my fair share of v-cards.

True Story: My Parents Divorced When I Was in College

I think most people look back on their college years with nostalgia, wishing for the sunny football Saturdays, the insane parties, and even the long weeknights nights spent in the library. I'm no different, of course, having had a similar experience with every other American college student.

Why You Should…Have Group Sex

I've been thinking. About threesomes. And about how I may have to tone down the randomness around the BF. But mostly about the sex part. There are so many reasons to invite an extra player into your game (or even a couple extra players...the more the merrier, right?), especially if your boyfriend has hot friends.

Where (and How) To Meet The Single Guys

Every magazine we've ever read since childhood has spouted off Top 10 lists of where to meet men (yeah, I'm pretty sure Highlights even touched on that subject). At this point in my life, the potential places to meet men have been pounded into my head. Yet, I still have some issues actually getting a dude. What am I doing wrong?

Why You Should…Throw Away Your Stuff

We're always told "less is more." I'm sure a couple of you out there are familiar with the concept (it's certainly true in the case of kissing and the amount of tongue insertion...and someone needs to inform that guy I made out with last night). Recently, I've become more attracted to the concept of having less stuff.

Back To School: Drink Yourself Some New Friends

Drinking games have long been a superb way of breaking the ice with new people (seriously, nothing sets a casual, friendly atmosphere like chugging shots at 3pm), but how do you move beyond the old favorites?

Why You Should…Shut Up

We say it all the time: shut up. Sometimes you mean it (like during a particularly nasty fight with the bf) and sometimes you don't (Clueless-esque situations of surprise and pleasure), but those two little words will always be there. How many of us actually listen to them, though?

Celebretard Showdown: Christian Bale vs. Jeremy Piven

Everyone has heard Christian Bale's ridiculous outburst on the set of Terminator. As a method actor, he can get pretty intense. I actually respect the lengths he goes through to get into character. However, I'm pretty sure other actors have managed to get into character without blowing up any time someone distracts them. Except maybe Jeremy Piven.

Why You Should…Eat More Meat

It's hard to be sure of what to eat these days. Health reports come out with a study against a certain food one day and for it the next. Do I eat the egg yolk or do I stick with the whites? Are pomegranates that good for me? How many more vitamins do I really need to take? It's confusing. And I don't like being confused about food. I just like eating it.

School Is Coming! End Summer Right.

After spending all of spring semester counting down the days until summer break started, I'm now faced with the end of summer and even more school. Where did the time go? What was I doing when the sun was shining and the waves were crashing? Oh yeah, I was probably online.

The 10 Types of Freshmen You’ll Meet On Campus

To really be prepared for your freshman year you should get familiar with the people that will surround you on a daily basis. Will your roommate be a Loner or a Homesick Child? Will your lab partner be an Athlete/Ultimate Fan and therefore too busy checking on player stats and scores to write the chemistry report with you?

So, This Is Where Men Learn To Date?

Everyone in this world needs a little help when it comes to understanding and interacting with the opposite sex (especially if you want your encounter to have a "happy ending"). Thankfully, there's a whole slew of self-help books out there for that very subject. Unfortunately, it's a double-edged sword.

Why You Should…Stop Texting

I love texting. It is perhaps my favorite invention next to the internet (how can that not be everyone's favorite invention??). My love has gotten to the point where I send out about a hundred text messages a day, but only make phone calls every couple of days. That got me thinking...what happened to my voice?

Harvard Hits The Runway

Although it's a pleasure usually reserved for high school students and younger, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day of school. In college, nobody cares what you wear to class (as exemplified by the large numbers of sweatpants and over-sized t-shirts I see in the lecture halls), but I still like that feeling of picking out a special outfit and preparing myself for another semester.

Celebretard Showdown: Kanye West vs. John Mayer

This installment of Celebretard Showdown could easily be called The Douchebag Edition, considering our subjects. Who is more pretentious? Who has talent and who just has a big mouth? So many questions, so little time (let's face it: there's only so much time you can spend reading Kanye West quotes before losing all faith in humanity and wanting to smash something).

No Twitter = Life In Shambles

Oh. Em. Gee. Twitter is down today. I click on that cute little blue "t" in my favorites and nothing happens. Nothing! That means no one will know what I'm eating for lunch.
