When it comes to sex, we here at The Frisky believe that if it works for you, who are we to judge? Maybe you've got a thing for truckers. Perhaps you are abstinent. Whatever your sexual proclivity is, more power to you. That's why when we came across this layout from Cosmo starring James Van Der Beek as a doctor feeling up a model patient on the table, we thought, Hey, why not? (Actually, we blocked out that it was Van Der Beek, seeing as he doesn't exactly float our boat, a task that was made easier by virtue of the fact that he was thoroughly facially Photoshopped.) The ladies at The Cut didn't like the pictorial so much, though. They deemed it "awkward" and opined "the idea of a doctor just taking his patient from the operating table doesn't appeal to us, nor does the ending of this spread, in which the Beek and his love interest get wild in the room containing all the medical records." Hospitals, they concluded, should be "sex-free." True! But aren't fashion editorials pure

According to a new study by Professor Ingo Schlupp, a zoologist at the University of Oklahoma, if the Mexican Molly fish could talk it would say, "Hey baby, you wanna mustache ride?" Basically, natural selection has made male Mollies into the Tom Sellecks of the sea. They have grown a thick, manly 'stache they use in the art of seduction. Apparently, before they mate, they tickle their special lady's hot spot with the spikey mohawk on their upper lip. Their foreplay technique is so remarkable, scientists have given it its own name: nipping. OK, so that name is just about as sexy as cunnilingus, but isn't it nice to know that we human ladies aren't the only gals who demand our men go downtown? Here are some more animals who agree you gotta lick it before we kick it.

You've met his friends; he's met yours. Now it's time to add fruity cocktails and mix. Short of introducing your parents to his, combining your two sets of friends-especially if they exist in very different worlds-is one of the most nerve-wracking milestones in a relationship. And since summertime is party time, it's probably going to happen in the next month or so. Here are a few steps you can take to make sure it's not a complete disaster.
1. If you sense impending conflict, give a heads-up. If, say, his friends are hedge-funders, while yours run more to the social worker side, let slip to both sides that there'll be no talking politics. If arguments (or worse) erupt, be ready with the Supersoaker. Or you could make sure there's a baby pool filled with Jell-O and have them take their dispute there. Who can hate with a face full of blue ooze?

Games keep us on our toes, make the chase exciting, and are occasionally fun. The problem with games, though, is there is always a winner and a loser. If you regularly like to play games in relationships, then it's a safe bet that eventually you'll get played. That's when you realize that being forward with the person you like may have been the simpler and easier way to go about things. More importantly, if you had been forward and played less games, then you might have gotten what you wanted in the long run. Find out 10 reasons why you should stop playing games and start being more forward. You'd be surprised what it can do for you.
1. True colors always come out. You can play games and pretend to be something you're not for as long as you want, but you're true colors will come out eventually. If you're simply forward about who you are from the beginning you won't waste any time pretending, and might get what you want.
2. It shows a lack of confidence. BeingRead More »from 10 Reasons You Should Stop Playing Games And Start Being Forward
When a study released in late June revealed that one in five women would remain childfree into the next generation, a lot of people were shocked. I wasn't. In an ironic twist of fate, I had my tubes tied the same weekend.
I don't have universal disdain for children or parents, and I don't hang out with people who do. What seems like their own insecurity with their choice is not only uncomfortable to witness; it gives all childfree folks a bad name.
I've never wanted to have children. I don't seem to have a biological clock or a built-in maternal instinct - and I'm not looking to acquire one. I have almost no pain tolerance, and I'm not a terribly patient person. If I wanted to take the offensive intellectual route, I could also offer up statistics about the environmental destruction wreaked by overpopulation. As a little girl, my parents' friends would tell me about how their children were the most blessed part of their life, and I'd roll my eyes, wondering why they didn'tRead More »from I Had My Tubes Tied At 27

Members of the American Psychological Association are considering renaming picky eaters "selective eaters" and classifying it in the category of eating disorders. Unlike anorexics and bulimics, selective eaters are not in life-threatening danger. However, people who continue fussy eating habits into adulthood are at risk for nutritional deficiencies. Some researchers think that this kind of eating has to do with being super-sensitive to taste and texture while others see it as a mild form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. For reasons that are unclear to scientists, most picky eaters like french fries, chicken fingers, pizza and pasta. I think it has something to do with the fact that those foods are awesome. But, seriously, do you think "selective eating" is a legit eating disorder?

10 Ways To Get Bikini-Ready (For Us Non-Celebs, That Is)
You already know what flies and what doesn't for summer style, but there are a few other violations that are driving us up the fashion wall. Ill-fitting clothing, poor trend execution, and outdated ideas simply must go. Prevention is key! Find the faux pas we just can't handle:
1. Colored contact lenses: Blues, greens, hazels, and browns are great eye color enhancers if they work for your skin tone and coloring. Reds, yellows, and other unnatural colors do not match anyone. Stay away, please.
2. Clear bra straps: Showing clear straps is tacky. They even reflect sunlight and blind others. Why can't you just wear a strapless bra?
3. Baggy pants, cinched belt: If you're wearing a belt to keep your oversized pants up, be sure to check your rear before you leave the house. The bunch-up of jean or fabric in the back is like a bunny tail. Who wants their junk in the trunk to look like that? Not us.
