Forget Dinner is a website that caters to people in sexless marriages. The casual dating site is particularly popular in the UK and boasts the tag line: "Forget dinner and go straight to bed!" Subtle! While many people use online dating (and dating in general) just to get laid, Forget Dinner removes any confusion. The site explains: "Forget Dinner allows people to be direct and honest about what they want without having to waste time, money, and effort sifting through the many thousands of singles who want a partner for life." Almost all the users are married, and the site has a 10-to-1 ratio of men to women. Some users say that they want to avoid long-term affairs that could get messy, so instead they look for no-strings-attached sex to make up for what they're evidently not getting at home. There's a trend among dating sites to declare people's motives right from the start. We have the site 7 or Better for people looking for well-endowed men, and there's even a Sugar Daddies site.Read More »from Forget Dinner: A Dating Website Just For Quickies

Colin Nissan and Sean Farrell of Don't Be That Guy fame have graciously agreed to answer some burning questions we women folk have about men. So check out their answer to the first question and stay tuned for more!
Today's question to Two Guys: "Why, if men get regular sex from their girlfriends or wives, do some of them still need to masturbate?"
On paper, we know this one doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But then, neither does whacking off into a perfectly good sock and we do that too.
Ever since that magical adolescent day when we discovered there was amusement park in our pants, there was no turning back. We were powerless. Our penis became the puppeteer and when it told us it was time to dance, we danced. Boy, did we dance.
Please don't make the mistake of taking this personally. For guys, masturbating is as unsexual, unromantic and unceremonial as doing Sudoku. It's simply our default time killer. If there's a two-minute lull at any given moment, ourRead More »from Why Do Men Who Have Partners Masturbate?

Some girls never let go of their wish to be princesses, and thanks to designer Kristie Kelly, they don't have to. The Kirstie Kelly for Disney by Mouwad collection, shown at Bridal Week in New York, features six engagement rings and wedding bands that pay homage to Disney's leading princesses.
The engagement rings, named after Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, and Belle are supposed to be "subtle references to the personalities of each princess." For example, the baguettes and clean lines of the Ariel ring are supposed to reference the bold style of art deco and Ariel's "bold individuality."
Although I was never a fan of princesses, have no plans of getting married anytime soon, and would feel sheepish taking a leap into adulthood wearing a Disney-inspired engagement ring, I do fancy the look of the Sleeping Beauty ring. What do you think of this collection?

I recently went to my friend's bachelorette party and got her the book Porn For Women as a gag gift. The PG porn book suggests that women get turned on by men doing things like vacuuming, folding clothes, or making dinner.
But according to a new study, seeing your spouse do household chores might actually be an aphrodisiac - and not just for women. The study revealed that the more housework a husband or wife does, the more likely they are to have sex with their spouses.
Many of the participating couples reasoned that showing an interest in household work - defined as cleaning, preparing meals, washing dishes, washing and ironing clothes, driving family members around, shopping, yard work, maintaining cars, and paying bills - demonstrates a greater willingness to invest in shared interests. It's a symbol of teamwork and commitment. One husband told researchers that sharing chores reflects a "willingness to hold my wife's needs and wants on par with my own." He sounds like aRead More »from Couples Who Clean Together, Sleep Together
Since it's Pet Peeve Week, all of you shared the little things that get under your skin in a big way. From your submissions, I've rounded up 10 annoyances I think most of us would count among our pet peeves. I'm sure we've all been guilty of doing these from time to time, but since it's the week to let out our frustration, let's get to it!
- Loud Chewing - There's nothing more annoying than hearing someone take every bite. Chomp, chomp . . . yuck!
- Inconsiderate Habits on the Subway or Elevator - Move away from the doors so I can get on, people!
- "Telling It How It Is" - One reader says she hates when people "keep it real" or "call you out" when they're actually just being rude and imposing their own personal opinion as fact.
- Bad Driving Habits - Some common pet peeves: slow driving, drivers who forget to use blinkers, people who don't stop at stop signs (does rolling count?).
- Lazy Grammar - We can all make mistakes (me included!), but that
In a convoluted world of oversharing, a new website is trying to streamline the process of revealing the details of your sex life to the world. Using Google Maps, IJustMadeLove.com lets users pinpoint the exact location where they've had sex. In addition to location, users can offer other details including positions used (although the list of possible positions is far from complete) and whether the love was made inside or outside. If you're more a voyeur than an exhibitionist, you can use the site to find out way too much about people's sexual habits. For example, the site reveals that more people than you would think have had sex in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! Happy snooping . . . or sharing!Read More »from Website du Jour: I Just Made Love

We're mixing things up this week and taking an anonymous confession from our new Confession Booth group for you all to weigh in on! This confessor finds herself in a serious predicament. "I just found out I'm four weeks along and don't even know this guy. I'm keeping the baby but I'm 29 and he's only 22. I'm so scared and not quite sure what the right thing to do is." What would you do? Make your anonymous confessions in our new Confession Booth group.Read More »from Confessional: She's Pregnant With a Stranger's Baby

Would You Go On Vacation With a New Love Interest?
Starting Nov. 1, any woman who has an abortion in Oklahoma will have to fill out an extensive questionnaire that will subsequently be posted online. Supporters of the law say that the information will help healthcare officials reduce the number of abortions. They also reason that the answers must be posted online so academic researchers can access the data.
As you can imagine, the logic behind these assumed advantages, along with the entire premise of posting extensive information about individual abortions online, is flawed for various reasons. Here are a few:
- Even though the questionnaire does not ask for name or address, the first eight questions alone most likely would be enough to identify a woman in a town of 200 or less.
- The data will not be suitable for academic research because of the way it is collected. Since a woman could fill out a questionnaire each time she sees a doctor about seeking an abortion, her data could appear to represent more than one patient.
What does it say about the future of the human race when people would rather give up sex for a year than go without a cell phone for the same amount of time? I guess it means that technological communication is truly becoming more important than old-fashioned face-to-face interaction, even the type of face-to-face interaction that involves having sex. Come on, people! What good is a booty call without the booty? Is sexting really better than sex?
In a survey sponsored by none other than Samsung Mobile, 31 percent of adults in Boston said they would rather give up sex for a year than go without cell phones for a year. Apparently, relying on email, hard-to-find pay phones, and immobile landlines is much more burdensome than forgoing sex.
Considering that I know people who literally sleep with their BlackBerrys, I suppose I'm not really that shocked by these results.

It's Banned Books Week and time to honor some of the most reviled books in America. While book-banning may sound like a throwback to Victorian times, censoring books continues to flourish in 21st-century schools. What's most surprising is a book can be removed from a curriculum, reading list, or school library with the complaint of just one parent. Violence, racial themes, and the occult are commonly cited reasons, but an even more popular one is sexual content. Check out these nine books that have been removed from schools in the last two years, and tell us if you think there's ever a good reason to ban a book.
- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - After a parent complained about a passage that discusses masturbation, the book was removed from the ninth-grade curriculum at a high school in Crook County, OR.
- And Tango Makes Three - Can anyone hate a book about penguins? They sure can if it's about homosexual penguins. After parents said the book's same-sex
