TresSugarSource: 2011's Hottest Love and Sex Topics
From sexed-up child stars to colossal engagement rings on famous fingers, celebrities gave us a lot to mull over in 2011.

As the new year approaches, let's take a look at some of our most popular polls and see what our readers think about a range of hot topics.

- Are You Affectionate With Your Family? : Liv and Steven Tyler enjoyed an evening of father-daughter bonding back in March, so we asked readers if they are super affectionate with their family members; 55 percent said no.
