Olympic Athletes and Condoms

Olympic Athletes and Condoms

I’m always amused by reports every 2 years about the number of condoms available to Olympic athletes and members of the press. In London, there were 150,000 condoms available in the Olympic Village. Sochi was dubbed the “Tinder Olympics” because of widespread use of the hook-up app. And in Brazil this month, there are 450,000 […]


Your First Fictional Arousal

The other day I was talking with a friend about an offbeat topic, and I thought it might provide some interesting discussion here. Or we’ll all just feel awkward for a few minutes. The discussion started with Outlander. I had heard that the books were stimulating, so I asked her if that was the case. […]


Can You Sum Up Your First Time with a GIF?

Can You Sum Up Your First Time with a GIF?

Today’s post involves a little more adult humor than usual. It’s still safe for work, though. On Friday I laughed harder and longer than I have in a long time. Apparently, someone started a thread on reddit in which they asked for people to convey their first sexual experience with a safe-for-work animated GIF. The […]


Is It Possible to Maintain Sexual Chemistry with One Person Forever?

Is It Possible to Maintain Sexual Chemistry with One Person Forever?

Given that I’m single, the question posed in the title has not occurred to me for quite some time. But yesterday I stumbled upon a riveting TED talk called, “The Secret to Desire in a Long-Term Relationship,” and it rekindled my interest in the subject. The talk, given by Esther Perel, is all about, our […]


Movies That Make Me Think: Don Jon

Movies That Make Me Think: Don Jon

Okay, let me say this: Don Jon is an R-rated movie about a 20-something guy with an addiction to pornography. That information might be enough to turn away quite a few people. But I actually think that Don Jon is an excellent film, and it’s made me think more than any movie in quite some […]


10 Ways I Blew My Relationships

10 Ways I Blew My Relationships

I’ve been single for a while now. My post-college dating history includes a 3.5-year relationship with a woman who moved in with me for a while, a 1-year long distance relationship….and then lots and lots of dates over the last 4 years. Recently I read a blog entry called 16 Ways I Blew My Marriage […]


Lent and the Art of Driving Without Calling

I was at a dinner party this past Saturday when the topic of Lent came up. For Catholics like me and other Christians, Lent is typically the time to give up something that is important to your lifestyle as a reminder of Jesus’ sacrifice. Most Catholics I know give up something like candy or chocolate […]


Ole Faithful

Ole Faithful

Up until last year, I had worn the same pair of soccer shorts for 14 years. I had sown up the crotch several times, but eventually the threads weren’t enough, and I was at risk for showing the world my boys every time I stretched. I’m writing this entry at my desk, surrounded by a […]
