I'm not a huge Seth Rogen fan. He's charming enough, I guess, and I always have a soft spot for Jewish actors who aren't conventionally attractive (Jason Schwartzman and Woody Allen, I'm talking to you). Read more »

During a recent beer-fueled gab session with my girlfriends, I made a startling discovery: All of us have particular ways our sexual encounters - whether with strangers or long-term lovers - tend to go. They are different for each of us. And most interestingly, they are unspoken.

For example. When Friend A brings a boy back to her bed, more likely than not they'll simply cuddle - or make out without having intercourse. Read more »

I've recently realized that Ellen Sussman's Dirty Words: An Encyclopedia of Sex (Bloomsbury, 2008) was a strange (good? bad?) choice as the first book I would read on the bus during my first month of car-free living in San Francisco. Read more »
