He Said/She Said: The Unspoken Rules of Sleeping Over

There's something about spending the night with someone that makes you feel so content and appreciated. Not just the sex, mind you. There doesn't even have to be sex. But sleeping over? Late night pillow talk and a warm body pressed against you? Amazing. Well, if it's done right.

He Said/She Said: Things I Wish Guys Would Do Less (Hint, Hint)

As wonderful as men are, I can't help but bring up a few...areas for improvement, shall we say...in the bedroom. Guys, I know it's not easy guessing what your partner may or may not like -- it's not easy for us girls either. But, here I will suggest a few things that we would like less of.

He Said/She Said: Things I Wish Guys Would Do More

When contemplating this week's topic, I decided to take a slightly different view of things. I could punch out a diatribe demanding more cunnilingus and begging for more compliments, but that's not truly what I want more of from men. So let's take a look: What do I really want?

He Said/She Said: Valentine's Day Gifts To Fit Any Relationship

Valentine's Day - love it or loathe it, it's looming on the very-near horizon. Personally I'm not a fan, but perhaps that's just my inner bitter spinster self talking -- assuming someone took it upon themselves to shower me with gifts, I'd be perplexed, but I surely wouldn't question it. But let's not allow my sour-grapes attitude get us down! Whether you're in an exciting new fling or a tried and true relationship, we've got you covered...

He Said/She Said: Taking Things to the Next Level

How do you know when it's time to move your relationship to the next level? At the risk of sounding deeply 'new age' and annoyingly like your high school counselor, I can't answer that for you. You and your lover are the only people who can decide where your relationship is going and when. I do have a few morsels of advice, though.

He Said/She Said – Stereotypes About Men That AREN'T True

Last week we considered a few stereotypes about men that are true, while Mr. He Said over at COED magazine thew in his two cents about female stereotypes that are accurate. This week, I'm looking at stereotypes about men that aren't true, from tears to sports to mechanical abilities.

He Said/She Said: Male Stereotypes That Are More Fact Than Fiction

As evolved and politically correct as we like to think we are, the fact remains that stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. Sure, many stereotypes are outdated, sexist and downright silly, but there are a few stereotypes that still hold truth. Deny it though they might, most men are guilty of the following...

He Said/She Said: What to Listen to When You're Getting It On

Oooh, sex and music. So much to say! In my own fervent opinion, sex and music go together like chips and dip, Ernie and Bert, or trashy TV and ice cream. Ideally, while you're having sex your mind should be far, far away. Too far away for you to be conscious of the fact that the bed is creaking, bodies are slapping together and for some reason there's a weird squelching sound (don't lie - I know you know what I mean).

He Said/She Said: Cuddles are Fantastic

You know what? For once I don't have anything negative to say. Halle-freaking-lujah! Cuddles are are fantastic. Hugs are amazing. Salacious cuddles? Yes, please. Friendly hugs? Hell yes! Comforting cuddles? Great! Free hugs because I'm a ginger? Always welcome. I am a huge fan of cuddling, and I've been fortunate enough to not yet meet a man who ain't one, too.

He Said/She Said: Sex Toys for Sexytimes?

But what happens when sex toys transcend the gap between self-pleasure and mutual satisfaction? Not for the sexually timid, I would suggest -- but it is quite tempting to contemplate adding one good thing (sex toys) to another good thing (sex). Why is introducing sex toys into your sex life a step that many find daunting to consider?

He Said/She Said: Porn with a Partner

I’ve watched porn before. Aside from films directed by Erika Lust, I’ve never truly found anything to my tastes. I’ve even watched porn with other people before. One particularly memorable afternoon, my five flatmates and I decided to watch Deep Throat. Mid-film, our city was rocked by a fairly robust earthquake. There’s some sort of deep lesson in there, I’m sure. Karma, perhaps?

He Said/She Said: Thumbs Up For Handjobs?

Do handjobs have a place in the sex-lives of college students? Didn’t we leave those back in high school? Apparently not. Handjobs are still out there in the wild, though overshadowed by more risqué sexual acts. But is it time to resurrect the humble handjob?

He Said/She Said: The Best and Worst Words for Sex

We speakers of English have a great talent for euphemism. I admire that; although our language is comparatively un-poetic, English speakers have nevertheless coined a great deal of terms in order to discuss social taboos. But, even in the post-sexual revolution, post-feminist, post-modern world, I think we are yet to adopt a suitable phrase for ‘having sex’.
