• Guess What? New Dads Have Trouble in the Bedroom, TooGuess What? New Dads Have Trouble in the Bedroom, TooSo when I hear new moms complain about that ever-present struggle of getting their sexy back after baby, I can't help but sympathize.

    After three babies and currently growing my fourth (why does that sound so weird, even if it's the truth?), I know that there will come a period during my pregnancy when the "Don't touch me" stage will begin, only to morph into the "Are you kidding me?!" stage after I pop that kid out.

    I am just not someone who bounces back well after a baby, neither in the body department, nor, apparently, in the bedroom department.

    And while I'm (mostly) OK with that, because I (mostly) know I'll get there eventually and I have a (mostly) wonderful, patient, and understanding husband, I can't help but feel a teensy bit of guilt over my lack of enthusiasm in the romance department. I definitely worry if I'm "normal" or if our marriage will suffer, or if heaven forbid, there's something wrong with me.

    But luckily for me, a recent study shows that it's not just

  • Dream a little dream of love

    Venus is in a happy place when she visits Pisces. In fact, astrologers have a fancy name called "exaltation," which basically stands for a planet being in a sign it holds in especially high regard. That sign is able to help the planet express the very best of what it represents.

    When Venus enters Pisces on April 5, 2014, love is expressed unconditionally -- without boundaries. Love has an ability to transcend all physical limitations and can flow in the most beautiful, ethereal way.

    And now you can see for yourself how your love life will fare with Maria DeSimone's exclusive Big Picture Love Forecast for the entire year ahead!

    Venus rules beauty and art, so while she's in imaginative Pisces, the most sublime creative potential is available. Pisces is quite sensitive to the suffering of others and while Venus is here, a special love for helping those in need will take over. Compassion is aroused. You may feel more romantic than usual and have faith in the potential of a love

    We've said it before and we'll say it again: Beyoncé and Jay Z are the ultimate power couple. Aside from killing it in their respective music careers (Queen Bey/Sasha Fierce/Mrs. Carter/Yoncé and Hova would be more than enough on their own) together as a family (could Blue Ivy be any cuter?) and collaborators (Bonnie and Clyde foreva) magic happens. April 4th marks the sixth wedding anniversary of this powerful union. From when the relationship rumors began thanks to their hit "'03 Bonnie and Clyde" to their secret nuptials in 2008, for which the couple flew in 70,000 white orchids from Thailand, and most recently, 2013's steamy smash "Drunk in Love," the very private couple has been running the world, together, for more than ten years.

    To celebrate the anniversary of their big day, we decided to scour the couple's personal photos online for our favorites. Whether it's a picture of them riding off into the night on a motorcycle after their New Year's party or a

  • Weird ways to help your relationship. Health.com
    By Sally Wadyka, Health.com

    You've read the self-help books, bought some sexy lingerie, maybe even tried couples' therapy-but somehow your relationship still can't seem to regain its spark. Well, it may be that you're trying all the wrong strategies. Recent relationship research has turned up some unusual ways to reignite passion, bolster communication, and strengthen the bond between you and your partner. Here, four to try.

    Go on a double date

    A recent study from Wayne State University found that interacting with another couple can make you and your partner feel more romantic toward each other. "Couples should avoid the trend many couples have of withdrawing further from their social networks as a relationship endures," says lead author Keith Welker. "Spending time together with friends and meeting new people is a source of support, personal growth, and new experiences to share with each other-and that can help relationships flourish."

  • Making "I do" last forever is one of the biggest challenges you'll ever face--and it's normal to worry about how you'll do it. But, if your connection involves any of these things, rest assured that you're in it for the long run. By Anna Davies, REDBOOK.

    "When something weird happens, my guy is always the first one I want to text." - Erin W., Highlands Ranch, CO
    Seeing your guy as your person--the one you want to share gossip or funny observations with--is essential, say Charles and Elizabeth Schmitz, psychotherapists and authors of Building a Love That Lasts. "Good couples tend to view their partner as their best friend," says Charles. "Having inside jokes and stories is part of what builds that bond." That's why it's key to share funny anecdotes about your day, even if they're as minor as your coworker freaking out because someone stole her Diet Coke from the communal fridge.

  • James Franco arrives at the 81st Annual Academy Awards.(Newser) - A story that is either kind of hilarious or totally gross is making the rounds: It seems James Franco met a 17-year-old tourist in New York City on Tuesday as he was signing autographs after performing in Of Mice and Men, and later attempted-via Instagram-to hook up with her. The teen posted photos and a video-in which Franco can be seen and heard asking her to tag him-on Instagram. Then things got weird. In screenshots the teen posted to Imgur (they've since been taken down), Franco, 35, appears to try and pick up on the girl. The screenshots were captured for posterity by Daily Dot, Dlisted, Gawker, Jezebel, and other outlets.

    In them, Franco (or at least it appears to be Franco) asks the girl (first through Instagram direct messages, then in text messages) how old she is, whether she has a boyfriend, and whether he should rent a room so they can get together in her hotel. The girl twice asked for proof of his identity, and he sent two selfies, one in which he's holding
