I recently read an article arguing against friends with benefits, written by Simcha Whitehill at The Frisky. As everyone who reads H&L regularly knows, I’m pro FWB and pro fuck buddy, and I’m also con bad dating advice. Of course, her article is her opinion and if FWB’s don’t work for her, that’s cool too.

Similar to what we did last March on the subject of attraction (see here and here), we’re putting a call out for a bunch of cool bloggers to do another roundtable. The subject this time around is virginity. Sweet! I love virgins! Oh wait…actually I don’t, but you’ll have to wait until my post to read why.
Any blogger can feel free to join in on this. We’re asking you to post on the topic on YOUR blog and then link to the other posts when the roundtable is over. This isn’t a contest, there are no prizes, and we’re simply looking for your interesting perspectives. We’re looking for posts to be published by next Wednesday, October 1. If you do participate, please drop the link to your post in our comments section.
There are several great benefits: Continued
I’m feeling much better about the world today, for several reasons:
- 8 hours of sleep, uninterrupted by boyfriends, dogs, or cats (I was aided in accomplishing this task by my friend Tylenol PM),
- spontaneous morning sex, woot!
- the BF doing all my morning chores for me so I wouldn’t be late to work after our spontaneous morning sex, and
- the knowledge that I’m taking the day off work tomorrow to visit some relatives who live nearby.
Thanks for your support yesterday!
No, not that kind of rough night, though I certainly hoped so at the beginning (and even told Lance that was the plan during an evening IM exchange). In light of Lance’s awesome video post about how to be a good girlfriend, let’s review the week so far.
The BF left his car at a buddy’s place on Friday night because I was the DD, and we go to pick it up Sunday. We know the battery’s dead but we had no idea how dead. It took like 20 minutes of charging off my car before the jump took, and then we drove to the nearest auto parts store. The battery’s only a year old but he doesn’t have his receipt and doesn’t know what store sold it. We spend a ton of time trying to track this down, he hasn’t eaten and is getting cranky, ends up just buying a new battery where we were and the helpful staff let him change it himself since he’s a dude. The day is ruined. Continued
So I found this fantastic video on videojug.com, a site that bills itself as the “definitive online encyclopaedia of life.” Well, of course they a have a dating/relating/sex section, and I perused several of the videos and they’re awesome! Some of the vids have a distinctly “British” feel to them, if you catch my drift…
Seriously? Perhaps inspired by the Natalie Dylan fiasco marketing ploy, 20-year-old Italian model Raffaella Fico is selling her virginity for the princely sum of 1 million euros, which is roughly $1.5 million US. Fico plans to use the money to buy a house and take acting lessons, as she’s an aspiring actress (Fico was on the Italian version of Big Brother last season).
