1. He Doesn't Tell His Guys Much About You, But Still Talks About His Exes
Don't freak-it's no big deal at all. For starters, women are way worse than men when it comes to what they reveal to their friends about the man they're with right now. A man, on the other hand, remains pretty tight-lipped about his girl; after all, he doesn't want his buddies picturing her naked. But sometimes guys need to brag about something if sexual escapades are being discussed, so they'll trot out old stories about exes.
2. He Thinks Your Bestie Is Hot
Oh, and also your frenemy. And your best friend's frenemy. And your friend from work. And your little sister. And …you get the idea. It doesn't mean he's going to make or move or even would want

This might be the future of contraception.Condoms are an essential part of sex, especially if you're not in a committed relationship. But, we get it: It's frustrating when you don't have one handy-and it totally sucks if you're allergic to latex.Read More »from The Latest in Female Contraception: Dissolving Condoms
By Meagan Morris
There's hope, though! Researchers at the University of Washington are busy working on a new type of condom for women that replaces traditional prophylactic materials with a science fiction-esque sheath electrically woven from chemical contraceptives, anti-STD medication, and polymers.

The best part? It blocks sperm, germs, and other undesirables before dissolving inside the body.
Kim Woodrow, one of the researchers behind the project, said their goal is to create contraception that women actually want to use.
"It's really about delivering them in a way that makes them more potent, and allows a woman to want to use it," she said.

What would your workout be like if men and women switched stereotypes? (Photo: Yahoo! Screen)You know the stereotypes. At a bar, the guys are usually the ones trying to muscle in on Girls' Night Out. At the gym, the women are doing yoga and contemplating frozen yogurt while the guys are comparing protein powders and wondering why they signed up for the yoga class in the first place. And in a relationship? Do we even need to describe who's shopping and who's bored?
Yahoo! Screen has taken those stereotypes and turned them around in their new video series, "The Flip Side," directed by Jay Diaz and featuring a fun -- and funny! -- cast of characters. What happens when men and women trade roles? Take a look.

Attention all Santa Baby-style gift givers! If you're the type that likes to get your sexy on as a Christmas gift to your man, hey, do your thang! (Did I just say "thang"?) It's not my style, but I can see how some silky red lingerie and a Santa hat, or a strategically placed bow might make for a hot present.
To help you out, I could have rounded up a selection of sexy, holiday-appropriate lingerie sets, orrrrrr I could show you guys the most utterly ridiculous "sexy" Christmas* get-ups I could find. Guess which I chose?
You know me well, readers. Let's go for the totally bizarre, who-in-the-world-thought-this-would-be-a-sexy-idea ensembles! (NSFW warning: I didn't show the most racy options, but some of these are straight-up lingerie, so beware in a conservative environment. Though even the more costumey options should probably not be worn publicly. Or privately, unless you're a couple with a great sense of humor and some extra cash to burn.)

Because girl, surviving a breakup is a marathon, not a sprint.
After a devastating split, it's hard to get your groove back. What's even worse is that getting over it doesn't happen all at once. Just when you think you're over it, you get hit with another wave of sadness.
It's taken me about a year to feel fully like myself after my big, life-changing breakup. Along the way, I spent a lot of time beating myself up for not moving on in a speedier fashion but looking back, I can see that only hurt my progress. What I should have done instead was to be proud of myself for every step I took, and when I felt discouraged and set back, looked forward to the next goal.
Don't repeat my mistake. Pat yourself on the back for each of these little mile markers on your way to a full recovery.
