Did everyone's dreams just come true? Ryan Lochte AND Prince Harry racing in a pool together in Vegas? It's too bad the jeans stayed on.

Baby When We’re Grinding: A Breakdown of All the Times I Grind

Whether you're tipsy at a local bar at closing time or you're staying in on a Friday night with your girlfriends, there is nothing wrong with getting down and boogieing. "Grinding" is what the kids call "dancing" these days where two (or more! Grinding train anyone?) people rub up against each other, usually fully clothed, and basically have sex with clothes on. I would call it, like, dry-humping but you're standing up...

Sundays Are For Procrastinating: Best Movie Dance Scenes

I'm a dancer, so you can bet that the second anyone starts to dance in a movie, I'm paying attention. Sometimes I go on YouTube binges where I spend hours and hours looking at dance videos. But I don't just enjoy watching videos of professional dancers onstage – I love movie dance scenes, too. And believe it or not, great dancing pops up in unexpected places.

The Weekly Ten: Cliché Catchphrases

Everyone loves a good movie quote. Here's lookin at you kid. Tomorrow is another day. If you build it he will come. I love lamp. They work their way into our lives and our vocabulary without us even realizing it.

Sex in the News: Spice Up Your Love Life

Oysters, chocolate, and green M&Ms chili. No, I'm not listing off ingredients for a (seemingly disgusting) recipe; I'm listing off well-known aphrodisiacs, AKA foods that allegedly get you in the mood to get freaky with yo bad self (and your partner). Well, get excited peeps, because there are a few new frisky foods to add to that list.

The Weekly Ten: Best Chick Flicks Ever

Okay, so a couple of weeks ago my weekly ten listed my top ten worst chick flicks ever. And you ladies had some pretty strong reactions to it and some pretty varied opinions. But amidst all those opinions I'm pretty sure I got the idea that you like chick flicks. And so do I. (Just not those.) I love chick flicks. Lots of them. There are so many amazing movies about women and for women, some about love, and some about life, that are labeled as chick flicks. And I'm not ashamed to admit that I've watched them more times than I can keep track of.

Couples That Make Us Love Love

So let's be real, we all cried a little bit when we found out Brad and Jen were splitting, and some of us are still sticking pins in our Angelina Jolie voodoo dolls not over it. In fact, thanks to our obsession with celebrities, faux-lebrities and TV/movies, we often find ourselves more invested in Hollywood/fictional couples than we do in our own relationships.

The 10 Hottest Chick-Flick Guys of All Time

Even though we usually tear up (or start flat-out bawling, depending on your current romantic situation), no girl can resist the chick-flick. Or, more accurately, the dreamboat main characters that make our hearts swoon for 90 minutes (and then again when we watch the DVD alone on a Friday night and cry into a bowl of Thai food). Those boys are just so...perfect.

And Why Can’t My Life Be a Movie Moment?

After spending lots of time analyzing my favorite movies, I’ve realized that it’s not so hard for the everyday man to create a movie moment in everyday life. Sure, finding a Leo DiCaprio to sketch my naked body on a sinking ship might be hard (and not ideal considering the ending), but many of the most romantic gestures in movies aren't so hard to manage, even without a script:

Yay! Patrick Swayze is Alive!

There are rumors circulating on the web that Pancreatic cancer has taken the life of Patrick Swayze. It still has yet to be confirmed, but just the thought of losing the man who taught us the power of dance at a summer resort in the Poconos is making us sad.
