Some people just can't seem to stay away from Bad Boys. But as our gay BFF points out, too often we're the ones who keep coming back for more.

I've got it bad for Bad Boys. Always have. Let's face it, they're hot (in movies, anyway). Their lives are exotic (not that you really know where they are most of the time). And when you're lucky enough to cling to them for dear life on the back of their motorcycle, you're never bored (so what if your adrenal glands start to prune after week one?).
But recently, I've begun to examine my side of my Bad-Boy attraction. Bad Boys are who they are and unfortunately, there's an endless supply of them. But why do I keep going after them? What are they giving me? What do I get out of these "relationships?"
After some serious self-reflection and about $800 in therapy sessions, (FYI, that's $800 worth of $20 co-pays - yep, a lot of sessions), I've unearthed some hard-to-face facts that I think areRead More »from When it Comes to Bad Boys, Are They the Problem or Are You?

It's time to ditch the winter flannels. In the winter months, we more than empathize with the need to wear cozy plaid flannel pj's that camouflage any indication that you are in fact, female. But with warm nights ahead and some expert self tanner application, it's time to let a littlelingerie back into your life.
We know not every girl is a practiced vixen, so below we've compiled a range of styles from good girls gone bad to women who like their skivvies with some vintage inspiration and downright scandalous next-to-nothings.

Who knew a movie about four New York women obsessed with designer shoes and frilly cocktails would elicit top-level secrecy usually reserved for the makers of Twilight. Still, when paparazzi photos leaked of a script in Kim Cattrall's hand - with a mention of Samantha's sexy ex, Smith Jerrod - the studio decided to stop at nothing to keep every plot detail under wraps.Read More »from 5 Sex and the City 2 Secrets Revealed!
Photo Gallery: See photos from our Sex and the City cover shoot.
Here's how they did it:
1. Confidentiality Agreements
Actors, production managers, and editors signed two-page agreements saying that anyone who revealed plot points would be slapped with a fine of $2.5 million, according to a source close to the production crew.
2. Unphotocopyable Paper
Scripts were printed on antiscan security paper, so if anyone tried to duplicate a page, the words "do not copy" would print all over it, making it impossible to read.
3. Monogrammed Scripts
Every page of every script was watermarked with the name of the actor or
It may feel good to get back at someone who hurt you, but does it really help? Readers share their tales of how they got even with their exes.

When you've been wronged by an ex, it's only natural to want to get back at him. Yet revenge is a tricky topic. It may feel good to get back at someone who's hurt you, but things don't always go the way you think they will - and is it really the best way to move on and get over the fool who did you wrong? Still, there is something pretty satisfying about feeling as if you've settled the score, at least a little bit. Here, a few of our readers tell how they exacted their revenge.
When Tanerah was living in Santa Cruz, CA, and found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her, she took cues from her favorite television show. "I used to be addicted to Sex and the City," she says. "When I discovered that my then-boyfriend was cheating, and it turned out that I was actually - unknowingly - theRead More »from Is Revenge a Bad Thing?
I know I'm not the first or the last to say this, but guys are weird. Take this example: Saturday night, I was rocking a sexy dress and this gorgeous makeup look and I had to prompt my boyfriend to tell me I looked "nice" (btw, I looked waaaaay better than "nice," thanks to these tips).
Cut to Sunday morning. I'm heading down to pick up coffee with absolutely no makeup on, my hair in a baseball cap, wearing jeans and an old t-shirt. What does the boyfriend say? "You look really pretty today." Totally unsolicited compliment! Does your guy ever do that?
What's the lesson here? Well, other than some guys just don't appreciate awesome hair and makeup looks like these, it's that sexiness comes in a lot of different forms. Don't believe me? Check out this quiz -- it'll show you what type of sexy you are and how to work it to your advantage.Read More »from What Type of Sexy Are You?
Most guys love to hate on SATC, but we found out the truth: they admire Samantha's sexual bravado and Carrie's clever puns almost as much as we do. We asked guys (yes, straight ones) what turned them on to the hit show, so the next time he rolls his eyes when a rerun comes on, you know he's faking it. Find out everything you want to know about SATC 2.
"I actually love the show and am not afraid to tell people. I think the dialogue is the best part. One of my favorite scenes was when Samantha threw the lemons at the young chicks sleeping with her "man" at his posh house in the Hamptons. You wouldn't see such ballsiness anywhere else." -Dima, 25
"I watch SATC for the same reason I read Cosmo, actually - to gain insight into the other side. It's like being invited to a secret meeting where women reveal what they really think about what guys do. Also, I know what a Manolo Blahnik is now, so I can nod knowingly whenRead More »from What Men Secretly Love About Sex And the City
You want to know what Carrie's wearing, and we're telling you everything!
- Cindy Pearlman, BettyConfidential.com
It's time to Carrie on. Forget about what happens to Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big, or if Charlotte loses her mind as a new mom. It's interesting to see Samantha back on the prowl and Miranda trying to trust Steve again. He's a bartender. She can only hope for the best!
The real question when it comes to the much anticipated Sex and the City 2 sequel is simple. What will the ladies be wearing? "The fashion really is another character in the movie," says Sarah Jessica Parker who promises that SATC 2 "won't disappoint on that front." Costume designer Patricia Field has confirmed that white plays a large role in the movie because the action takes place over seven weeks during the summer. "I'm going for a new look and new elements," promises Field.
