What's the Deal With "Steak And Blow Job Day"?

When I first heard about "Steak and Blow Job Day," I cracked up laughing. My husband of seven months insisted that this "holiday," celebrated on March 14, was a day for men to be treated special. He said that I had to cook him a steak and give him a blow job to show him my appreciation. Since these were two things I did regularly, I shrugged him off; what made March 14th any different?

I had to admit that he had a point, so I humored him and looked online for more information because I wasn't convinced he wasn't pulling my chain. ...more

What's Your Most Embarrassing Sexual Experience?

My former roommate once shared a story with me about a man who came over to her home after a date and, in his sleep, peed in her bed. He also managed to pee on the carpet in her bedroom. He later blamed it on the alcohol, of course, but she was so repulsed and put off by his blunder, that she didn’t want to speak to him ever again. How could such a thing actually happen?...more
