6 Dos & Don’ts of Having a Spring Fling

No longer stuck inside because of the cold, winter couples are calling it quits and moving on to the coupling up that happens just around this time every year: the spring fling. Maybe it's the weather, or the soon-approaching end of the semester that's causing it. Whatever it is, the time for a fling is now.

This Post Grad Life: Things I Can't Handle Like a Champ

College was a large Biodome for easy mistakes, debauchery, learning and living. And now that I've been out of college for a while, a few things have become irresistibly harder to accomplish without this grand ol' biodome of easy living. I've dealt with the following combo platter of difficulties in the real world, and in every situation I contemplated ripping my hair out.

True Story: I Committed Dormcest

Dormcest, especially floorcest, was quite the epidemic my freshman year. For the first month, I just didn't get it. It was like making out with your closest friend. Didn't anyone feel awkward? Weren't they weirded out by it? Wasn't it bizarre to be (essentially) sharing a room with the person you're hooking up with? Maybe I was naive, but I voted yes.x

Are Friends with Benefits and No Strings Attached a Black Swan Parody?

Unless you've been Justin Timberlake's biggest fan since 1998 or unless you've got a major girl crush on Mila Kunis, I don't know why anyone would dish out $10 to see Friends with Benefits at the theaters this week. Sure, it's not the first time Hollywood has tried to get two movies out of the same plot, but I can't figure out how this movie could be any different from No Strings Attached.

Sex 'em and Forget 'em: Everyone's Doing It!

If there's any place where causal sex would be seen as the norm, it's college. People are humping like wild pitts off their leashes, and these days a committed relationship is no longer a requirement for sex. There are so many different things to consider when choosing the perfect freak-and-forget partner though. Even though you're wrapping it up and taking all STD-free precautions, it's hard to know who's a complete sketchball and who's not.

Sexy Time: Have A Great One Night Stand

There are some nights when you go out and all you want to do is pregame, go out with your friends, dance, gorge on your late night snack of choice (grilled cheeeeeese), and pass out. Then there are those nights where as you're lining your eyes and shaking it to Britney, a thought crosses your mind. You want sweaty, perhaps alcohol-fueled, passionate, inappropriate, killer sex with someone. But just once.

He Said/She Said: I Need More than Just a Willing Partner

The random hook up. Probably the only thing more common at a college party than drunk people screaming to Journey. That's why people are there, isn't it? That's why we girls spend hours picking out outfits that are sexy without being too slutty, and risking third degree burns with a flat iron.

He Said/She Said: Dormcest

For many students, college, like Las Vegas, is the land of indulgence. From the all-you-can-eat buffets in the cafeteria to the endless kegs at house parties, if you want something, you got it. Here. Now. Until you burst (or barf). And that goes for hooking up, too.

Now Showing: No Strings Attached

When I groaned after No Strings Attached ended, my friend turned to me and said, “If you hate romance, don’t go see romantic comedies!” And those who have read my reviews before probably already know that I’m not a sucker for romance. So you would think that I might enjoy a comedy about platonic sex buddies Emma and Adam (played by Nathalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher).
