Great, Now Even Oral Sex Can Kill You

The good, the bad and the ugly things we learned about our bodies today by Jeff Gross If doing this column five days a week has taught me anything, it’s that over a long enough timeline, everything you eat, and everything you do, can kill you. Nothing is sacred! Case in point: Cunnilingus, a.k.a. going down on a lady, a.k.a. dining at the Y. Don’t let Petey Pablo in “Freek-A-leek,” or DJ Quik in “Can I Eat It?” scare you — giving head is the best. It’s one of the few things in the bedroom where a guy — or gal — can really take control of giving … Continue reading Great, Now Even Oral Sex Can Kill You

All the Pop Culture Touchstones We’ve Never Seen or Heard and Always Get Shit About

The thing about culture these days is that there’s so much (too much?) of it. One could even argue that as a media organization, we’re part of the problem. Nonetheless, as members of the cultured elite — we publish at least one dick-related article a week — there’s still plenty of culture that we’ve been shamed for not having read, seen or heard. For instance… by MEL Nick Leftley, Senior Editor: Any time I say I’ve never seen Top Gun, people look at me like I’m an alien. And admittedly I am, albeit a legal one. But I get the same reaction in my native U.K., … Continue reading All the Pop Culture Touchstones We’ve Never Seen or Heard and Always Get Shit About

An Astrologer’s Sex Guide for Men Who Don’t Care About Astrology

by Erin Taj Let me tell you something you probably already know: Women fucking love astrology.

Let me tell you something else you probably already know: Men don’t give a shit about astrology. In fact, your eyes are … Continue reading An Astrologer’s Sex Guide for Men Who Don’t Care About Astrology

If You Suspect You Have Psychotic Tendencies, You Probably Love the R&B Group Blackstreet

by Jeff Gross The good, the bad and the ugly things we learned about our bodies today Do you find yourself putting Blackstreet’s seminal 1996 jam “No Diggity” on every playlist you make? Do you love Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”? If so, congratulations! You might be a psychopath. That, according to Pascal Wallisch, a clinical assistant professor of psychology at New York University, who might find himself regretting releasing his preliminary study on the connection between music and psychopathy. Wallisch told the Daily News that he tested 260 highly recognizable songs and found that 30 showed promise for predicting whether someone was a total fucking … Continue reading If You Suspect You Have Psychotic Tendencies, You Probably Love the R&B Group Blackstreet

Tell Me Moore: I’m Obsessed With Finding Perfect Love

by Tracy Moore I’ll get right to it. I consider myself an over-romanticizer. I spend a fair amount of time imagining what an “ideal” love would look and feel like. I’ve even gone as far as to start writing (shitty) poetry to capture a vignette here and there. Kind of a keepsake, should I ever fall out of love with the idea of love. I’m talking about the kind of relationship where two people are so deeply intertwined, seemingly on a cosmic level, that nothing could tear them apart. Now, is this kind of fantasizing just an exercise in self-torture … Continue reading Tell Me Moore: I’m Obsessed With Finding Perfect Love
