• According to LELO, 86% of lefties put themselves in the 'extremely satisfied' category.(Newser) - If the results of a survey by a Swedish "intimate lifestyle product" manufacturer are to be believed, the left-handed among us are vastly more satisfied with our sex lives. As part of LELO's 2014 Global Sex Survey of 10,000 people, the company distinguished between righties and lefties, and asked about their levels of satisfaction in bed. Some 86% of southpaws put themselves in the "Extremely Satisfied" category; only 15% of right-handed people did the same, reports Australia's News Network. LiveScience previously noted that about 10% of the planet is left-handed.

    But LELO's note that the results were verified by the seemingly non-existent and too-perfectly-named "Le Gauche Institute, Paris" is enough to lead us to advise you to take the results with a grain of salt. After all, LELO has good reason for coming to such conclusions: It has a new product out that's designed for left-hand use ... by righties.

  • In wedding planning, as in life, there are uncomfortable topics you have to cover, so knowing the right way to ask (instead of argue) for things gives you a way to resolve any possible ripples before they become tidal waves. When the asking is out of the way, there's more time for enjoying, celebrating and making memories. Isn't that what your big day is supposed to about? Here, some ideas.

    1. How to ask your guests to travel for a destination wedding:
    Asking your friends to get on board with this can be difficult. Between time off from work (and the cost of travel and lodgings), a lot of friends and family might find it difficult and expensive to attend. It's ideal to give your potential guests as much notice as possible. Read our destination wedding countdown calendar ►

    You could start by saying, "We would love to have you help us celebrate and I know this will require extra time and money on your part. Do you think you could make a vacation around the wedding? I'm

    Reportedly, the high-profile couple will spend approximately $125,000 on each of their 200 guests according to a source that told Grazia UK reports StyleCaster. In case you didn't want to do the math yourself, that comes out to a total of 25 million (yeah, we gasped, too) on the guests alone. Nevermind the lavish, hand-delivered wedding invitations, which reportedly cost $1,000. "Kim and Kanye wanted the invites to be as lavish as possible, and commissioned a couture designer to create gold silk boxes containing a photo album of their fairytale romance and a silk invite etched in real gold leaf with a clasp of natural pearls," the source says.

  • These seemingly innocent phrases still have the power to wound… big-time. By Anna, Davies, REDBOOK.

    1. "Did I ever tell you about the time X and I skinny-dipped?"

    "She didn't, but now that's all I can think about," says Charles S., 42. "I've never skinny-dipped with her, and she's my wife! I wonder what other wild things she and her ex got up to that I've never heard about." While you may intend to innocently share stories about your crazy single days, your guy hears this and assumes you're still hung up on your ex. You don't have to edit your stories for his ears, but add how much more fun it would be to go skinny-dipping with him so he knows that he's the only one you want.

    2. Do you know how many gray hairs you have?

    "My wife said this to me on my 40th birthday!" says Mike S., 41. "I know she was just kidding, but more than a year later, I still think about it every time I look in the mirror. I thought I looked good." Gentle ribbing is part of marriage, but it's

  • Band-Aid

    heartsIn my quest to find one of the ones who is to be the one I have corresponded with a multitude of men. I have found an underlying problem that seems to be worrying both sexes. The complaint I keep finding on both sides of the spectrum of men and women is that they feel many on dating sites are just looking for sex or a meal ticket. This complaint has come from both men and women and not just women.

    In a recent conversation, a man asked me what I was truly looking for. He stated that so many women he encountered wanted purely sexual relationships and he wanted something serious and lasting. He mentioned that women he had been meeting either wanted a casual encounter or a fine dining experience but it left him a bit cold to find that few he met wanted something of substance, something meaningful.

    What poured out of my mouth was an explanation that I didn't even realize I had until I spoke it out loud.

    "Sex is a Band-Aid for those who don't have actual love in their lives."

  • Want a Mermaid to Officiate Your Underwater Wedding? You're in Luck.

    Photo: SheratonCalling all engaged mermaid enthusiasts! (Yes, apparently there are some.) One Florida hotel is offering a mermaid wedding package that’s perfect for pairs who have always wanted to be a part of their world under the sea.

    Brides- and grooms-to-be can now take the plunge, quite literally, under the water at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel That's right. Under the guidance of a mermaid officiant, happy couples can exchange rings, have a first dance, share a symbolic kiss (by blowing bubbles) and even exchange vows (via waterproof signs) submerged in the 8-foot-deep end of the hotel’s pool. The package, which launched April 1, doesn't come with scuba gear, but rather "the bride and groom will take a lesson in aquatic training with the resident mermaid to learn breath control and choreograph the ceremony," says a hotel spokesperson. The aquatic portion of the nuptials

  • Now that We're Married, Why Can't We Date?Now that We're Married, Why Can't We Date?One of the most commonly-relayed pieces of advice I've heard about nurturing a marriage is for the married couple to go on regular dates with each other. Sounds good. I would buy that advice in a heartbeat -- if I could afford it. I have nothing but nostalgia for the days when my wife and I were cheap dates.

    Before Addie was born, Casey and I went on dates regularly together. In fact, our finances back then would indicate that we went on too many dates together, but we both loved being out together. Although Addie's birth threw a bit of wrench in our consistent dating life, it still wasn't too difficult to drop Addie off with some relatives for an evening or for a day so we could get out and do something alone as a married couple. Back then we didn't realize how fortunate we were to have family living so close who wanted to spend time with Addie. Then we moved to Indiana, where our closest relative lives a nice 15 hour drive away.

    Not having family nearby has made it difficult to
