The Texas Abortion Bill Fight Isn’t Over [Lady Bits]

Remember last week, when Texas state senator Wendy Davis stood and talked for 11 hours to filibuster SB5? The bill that, if passed, would be the most restrictive piece of abortion legislation in the country? Yeah, that was pretty awesome.

New Year, Same Crazy Politicians In Washington [Sex in the News]

Instead of focusing on one issue, I thought I'd share a smattering of new issues that came up this week, and judge from afar (aka Canada - the land of legal abortions and same-sex marriage).

National Steak and a BJ Day at SXSW

March 14 falls exactly one month after Valentine's Day and is recognized as National Steak and a BJ day. I polled people out on the streets during SXSW to find out how they were celebrating!

Sex in the News: Boycotting Marriage Until All Can Marry

There are many heterosexual couples that say they won't get married until after marriage equality is achieved and same sex marriage has been legalized — Brad and Angelina are probably the first couple that comes to mind. It's a decision I admire, and it's cool to see that one woman has taken the fight for equality a step further.

Summer In The City: Brunch is not a Contest Between You and Your Liver

When a friend came to visit me in the city this past weekend, I really wanted to show her a good time while also doing some quintessential New York things. The weekend was a whirlwind to say the least but I definitely learned a lot.

Weekend Getaway: Austin, TX

Austin is somewhere I'm glad to call my home. It's a city that's big enough to be exciting, but at the same time small enough to be super friendly. There is always something to do here, which is why I think it'd make a great fall break destination. Why you ask? Well for starters, if music is your thing, Austin is definitely the place to be.

CollegeCandy’s BCS Bowl Guide!

As a student at a Big Ten school, football has become my soul purpose in life. From crackin' the first beer in the shower at 6am on game day to FB-stalking the quarterback (shhh!), my world revolves around a bunch of dudes in spandex tackling each other on some astro turf.

Coupled. Cozy Up When It Gets Cold.

Ok, so maybe it doesn't snow here in Texas, but it's finally gotten to the point where I have to turn the heater on in my apartment! And while I'm really not a fan of snotsicles, I am a huge fan of staying indoors in the winter-time and cuddling up with the boyfriend.

Coupled. Where Are We Spending The Holidays?

With Halloween over and done with and Christmas decorations lining hte aisles of my local CVS, it can only mean one thing: Holiday season has begun. But along with the amazingness that is Thanksgiving and Christmas, comes with one big question:
