These Are All The Ways Men And Women Orgasm Differently

These Are All The Ways Men And Women Orgasm Differently

There are a lot of myths surrounding female and male orgasms. One of the most common myths is that men and women have two totally different experiences when they climax. But in fact, it’s just the opposite. In terms of the actual orgasm, what men and women experience is very similar. Although multiple studies have been […]

Why Being ‘The Weird One’ Will Always Make You More Attractive

Why Being ‘The Weird One’ Will Always Make You More Attractive

I’ve always been weird. Before I entered kindergarten, my dad gave me some good advice that I still follow today. In an attempt to prepare me for potential bullies, he told me to say “thank you” if someone called me “weird.” He told me to take “weird” as a compliment. He was prophetic in his advice. […]

Thank You, Hillary Clinton: Women Share What Her Historic Run Meant To Them

Thank You, Hillary Clinton: Women Share What Her Historic Run Meant To Them

After a rough election result for Hillary Clinton supporters, many are feeling lost. Several political analysts and reliable polls that correctly predicted the president in the past got it wrong. Guam, whose votes don’t count toward the presidential tally, but whose voters have predicted the presidency since 1984, got it wrong. Even the Scotland’s psychic goat […]

People Who Doodle Pay Better Attention, Even If You Think They’re Spacing Out

People Who Doodle Pay Better Attention, Even If You Think They’re Spacing Out

I’m a constant doodler. It doesn’t matter if I’m in meetings at work, on the train or even in a one-on-one conversation. If there’s a surface and something to draw with, I’m probably doodling. My old notebooks and diaries are filled with my doodles. Most of them aren’t even drawings of anything; they’re just squiggly […]

This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Become A Vegan

This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Become A Vegan

I’ll be the first one to admit I could never go vegan. I mean, I just ate a marinated pork shoulder last weekend that made me feel like I was a queen at a medieval feast. But, I totally admire those who can commit to eating clean. The health, environmental and ethical reasons many people […]

People Guess Each Other’s Political Parties Based On Nothing But Appearances

People Guess Each Other’s Political Parties Based On Nothing But Appearances

I think most of us would assume we could look at a person and guess their political party of choice. As the drama surrounding the presidential election continues to build, I’ve been more curious than ever to figure out which way people are leaning. And I’m not above using someone’s appearance to judge which party he or she associates […]

Why Your Ability To Be Present Will Always Affect Your Happiness

Why Your Ability To Be Present Will Always Affect Your Happiness

For me, living in the moment in today’s world is extremely difficult. I miss the days when I would play alone for hours while my older sisters watched “MTV Spring Break,” fawning over “TRL” VJ Tyrese. I miss the days when I’d pretend my playset was a ship and the grass was the ocean full of […]

What Having Your Period Was Like Over The Past 100 Years

What Having Your Period Was Like Over The Past 100 Years

What I remember most about the first year I started my period was the shame. I was teased by other girls for wearing pads instead of tampons, and, once I switched over to tampons, I was teased by my male classmates for carrying them in my backpack. Instead of celebrating the fact that I could […]

These Cheese Facts Will Make You Feel Less Guilty About Your Dairy Addiction

These Cheese Facts Will Make You Feel Less Guilty About Your Dairy Addiction

If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, it’d be cheese. I’d eat every single kind: gouda, the stinky stuff and Velveeta. Even if it’s not technically real cheese, but the package says it’s cheese, I’m into it. I’m not biased. Cheese makes everything better. After a thorough drizzling of blue […]

Democrats And Republicans Debate About Things Other Than Politics

Democrats And Republicans Debate About Things Other Than Politics

This election season blows. If I see another article about He Who Must Not Be Named, or watch Hilary attach herself to another hip thing (first it was Lena Dunham, then it was Hamilton), I’m going to curb stomp all my electronic devices. If I’m being honest with myself, I’m much less politically active than […]

Ridiculous Body Trends Demonstrated With Food

Ridiculous Body Trends Demonstrated With Food

The internet (and media in general) are obsessed with making us feel like shit about our bodies, so much so that body trends exist. There’s the thigh gap, the finger trap, waist training, the collarbone challenge, the bikini bridge (which started as a hoax, but then became real) and the newest member of the body-shaming family, […]
