I Think Women are Sexier Than Men, But I’m Not a Lesbian

When I look at a hot woman, I immediately think, "OMG that woman is SO gorgeous." For me to think a man is gorgeous, I have to take other things into account.

Tuffy Luv Sez: One Little Lie Gets Big

When I first got together with my girlfriend, I told her I'd only slept with one other girl and one guy. When we first got together, I thought it would just be a short-term thing, because we're in college and that's what you do. Well it turns out she and I really love each other...

Is Being Gay A Choice? Actress Cynthia Nixon Says Yes

It's not easy being gay. The LGBT community has worked tirelessly to declare that sexual preference is not a "preference" at all and lean more toward a "I'm on the right track, baby, I was born this way" mantra. However, is it a winner-takes-all conclusion in the homosexuality debate? According to Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, maybe there's more than one way to be gay. And ton of people are pissed off about it.

Sex in the News: Lesbian Couple Takes a Seat

Coming across the We Do Campaign video, in which non-heterosexual couples go to apply for marriage licenses in North Carolina, a state in which gay marriage has not been legalized broke my heart. Writing about the divide in belief about same-sex marriage last week, brought up the point that there in some parts of the United States there isn't a lot of support for legalization.

What High Schools Should Teach in Sex Ed

In high school, my sex ed was what you would call minimal. Since Texas firmly believes in abstinence only education (which so doesn't work - my high school had a day care program for crying out loud!), I consider myself very lucky that I had a very open-minded mother who taught me about sex. Here's what they should be teaching high schoolers in order to better prepare them.

Tuffy Luv Answers a Complicated Question

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have a dilemma. Currently I'm (only) 17 and a junior in high school, though I would like to think that I seem 'beyond my years.' At 5'11", it is not uncommon for adults to think I am older, which can be fun when I'm out on the town with my girls and older guys spark up convos...

Duke It Out: Gay Affirmative Action

When just a couple of decades ago many people couldn't RISK coming out in college, now schools are trying to recruit applicants from the LGBT community and while I have no qualms about that, I gotta wonder if it's fair.

Duke It Out: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Last week, the Senate voted not to repeal the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy - a policy that's essentially a band-aid for the absence of gay rights in the military. The policy, which was introduced in 1993, has essentially stood all of this time as a way of saying 'you can be gay in the military, as long as nobody knows about it'.

Why This Straight Girl Is Celebrating The End of Prop 8

Yesterday, two years after Prop 8 - a proposition to ban gay marriage in California - was passed, Federal Judge Vaugh Walker released a 136-page document deeming the proposition unconstitutional. To say it was a big day for the gay and lesbian community in this country is an understatement. In fact, to say it was a big day for this very straight woman is an understatement, too.

Sexy Time: Swinging Both Ways

Before I graduated high school, my friends and I had an ongoing joke about the college life. More specifically, we would semi-kid about the drunken “lesbian experience” that the crazy nights of college parties would inevitably bring. As it turns out, many of my ideas about college life that I learned from Van Wilder and American Pie movies aren’t quite accurate.

According to a study by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, 65 percent of college freshman surveyed were in favor of gay marriage. The findings revealed that even a large majority of students classified as far-right were also supporters.

I Kissed A Girl…And I Wanna Do More

Like Katy Perry, and probably many of you, I kissed a girl. And I liked it. More than once. Lately I’ve been wondering if kissing a girl is so different, what would having sex with a girl be like? The thought has left me awake at night with lots of questions, confusion and curiosity. When it comes to trying out the other team, there's just so much to consider...

Tuffy Luv Sez: Don’t Give Up On Love!

Dear Tuffy Luv, I am so sick of men. I mean it. I just can't take it any more. They all just break my heart. I'm in college--isn't this supposed to be a time when it's fun to just meet guys? Dating is horrible and I never meet anyone good anyway, unless I do and then they always just ruin it somehow.
