How Much Do Guys Expect on the First Date? [Ask a Dude]

I've been out on first dates with guys who barely go in for a kiss at the end of the night, and others who can't seem to get my clothes off fast enough.

Help! I Sexted My Best Guy Friend [Ask Tuffy Luv]

There's always been a mutual sense of harmless flirting to our friendship, however, as we are both single. About a week ago, we were texting each other and the typical flirting began. But then the tone changed and we were suddenly sexting!

In Defense of Naked Makeout Sessions [Sexy Time]

Recently, I was reading through an advice forum that's usually frequented by fairly open-minded people. These people bashed the idea of getting naked with someone repeatedly while having zero intention of boning them. They called it irresponsible and labelled it a "tease" move.

FWB or WTF!? [Ask Tuffy Luv]

Sometimes it seems like we may be "talking" and others it seems like he just wants a friendship, and I'm honestly fine with either. I want to know where we're at so that I don't get unrealistic expectations, but I don't want to bring it up and potentially screw up a good friendship.

6 Things You'll Only See In College

College is a time when we really get to find out who we are and what we're made of. We're in charge of our own lives, and we get to take care of ourselves! College is also time for seeing things we never thought we would in our lives.

He Said/She Said: Defining "Hooking up"

So what exactly is your definition of hooking up? Could it mean a little bumpin’ and grindin’ followed by a sloppy make-out sesh? Does it mean crawling into a cab with a guy, knowing good and well that you’re going to “get your kicks” (thanks Rizzo from Grease for that one) later that night? Or does it mean bypassing first and getting right to second base?

Sexy Time: A Foray into Foreplay

Without a doubt, one of the best ways to improve the quality of your sex life is engaging in foreplay. A lot of sex advice articles focus on the fact that many women need foreplay in order to orgasm, which I think is kind of a restrictive and pressure-fueled way to approach it.

Sexy Time: What is Sex, Anyways?

Sexual activity is anything but black and white. Hooking up, making out, and fooling around all mean different things to different people; I told my mom when I was about 15 that I had been making out with a boy, and had to spend the following 20 minutes explaining to her that making out was just French kissing. Apparently back in her day "making out" meant having sex — which is certainly different than my innocent round of tonsil hockey.

The 8 Traits of a Great Wingwoman

In a college world where (shocker!) people drink and hook-up on a regular basis, it's always a lovely gift in disguise to have a wingwoman by your side who supports you, sets you up for success, and is your personal cheerleader.

Hooking Up – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun… Right?

Ever since I flipped through the many college brochures in high school, I had my own college fantasy. I saw frat boys making out with sorority girls under a sycamore tree in the quad a Sports Illustrated swimsuit poster while double-fisting a Coors. It's a strange college ideal, but let's face it: in college, hooking up comes as natural as canning two Red Bull 30 minutes deep into a study session.

Tuffy Luv Luvs Women With Balls

Dearest Tuffy Luv, My friends and I are noticing a growing trend among the men in our group. They have no balls. And what I mean by that is they don't take initiative. They sit around like a bunch of Golden Girls and bitch over every girl problem they have (some of these problems having to do with us) but they never solve the problem.
