How to Make a Sex Tape

By Kristen Droesch for

You know how it is.

Let's be frank; outside of porn stars in a carefully choreographed scene, most of us don't look so pretty in a sex video (looking at you, Paris). Plus, it's awkward as hell. And here's the proof, broken down into 13 stages for your convenience.

1. Getting drunk enough to think it's a good idea.

2. Stumbling around the house trying to find the camera, because this is not something you want on your iPhone.

3. Stripping down and realizing that you both forgot to shave

4. Still being drunk enough not to care.

5. Trying (and failing) to get the camera in a flattering position.

6. Psyching each other up to actually get the deal done.

7. Deciding it's the perfect time to try that freaky new move you two have been hesitant to experiment with.

8. Realizing that you didn't stretch before hand.

9. Trying to make a sexy O-face instead of your usual nonsense, and looking like this instead:

10. One of you getting ahead of the game and, well…

11. Sitting down to watch it in the light of day, and being so sure that you two are as hot as porn stars.

12. Watching it, cringing in horror…

13. …and getting drunk again to erase the memory.

An Affair Strengthened My Marriage

It began as a typical Saturday night out with my closest women friends. But on that particular evening as we sat, laughed and talked in a popular New York restaurant, acquaintances were seated nearby celebrating their friend Alex's* birthday. They invited us to join their table for a toast, which turned into several. When the house music came on and everyone headed for the bar, Alex — handsome and playful — took my hand and led me to the dance floor.   Read more >

My Alcoholic Father Made Me A Better Mom

My father was hilarious and creative and the best friend that a guy with a truck stuck in a ditch at 4 am could have. He was intelligent and hard-working and the life of the party. He could strum a guitar and build a tree house and fix a satellite dish. He was a great friend and employee, and I thought he was a great father. It wasn't until I grew up that I realized he was a crappy dad and husband.   Read more >

If You Don't Make Money, I Won't Date You

I ain't saying I'm a gold digger, but yes, you have to have a little gold. Let me give you a little context to explain my decision. When I was 19, I started my own very successful freelance writing business and by the age of 22, I dissolved it not only because of the economic downturn, but because I saw a more profitable career in Corporate America. Within three years, I was making six figures, flying across the country, buying stocks and working to earn a master’s degree - all while working full-time. I made good and bad choices financially, and twice, I’ve walked away from jobs, leaving me with no income streams. But divine intervention from God and my ability to get back in the game allowed me to recover each time, coming back more financially stable and resilient than before. I now find myself in another decently-senior position in a Fortune 500 company, writing this blog, sitting on important non-profit committees and attending high-profile parties in between.   Read more >
