The Sex Talk: What’s Your Number?

The Sex Talk: What’s Your Number?

Good morning, darlings. Let’s talk about sex. According to this survey of British students, the average male student has slept with 10 women, but the average woman has slept with seven men.

… Either that or people are just good at lying in surveys. I must admit, I suspect the latter.

Now, I’ve made no bones in the past about my distaste for 99 percent of the content generated by TFM writers, but

TRAVEL REVIEW: Sandals Resort, Jamaica

TRAVEL REVIEW: Sandals Resort, Jamaica

This month my boyfriend and I went to Jamaica, m’on. It was our first time at an all-inclusive resort and our first time in Jamaica. We stayed at Sandals in Montego Bay for an extended weekend from Friday until Tuesday afternoon.

I booked the trip with my own Internet skills instead of utilizing a travel agent. I chose Montego Bay because that was where we were flying into and figured the drive…

Lena Dunham Does Not Speak For Me

Why The ‘Girls’ Creator Should Not Be Honored For LGBTQ Allyship By Shannon Keating

“It was actually a huge disappointment for me, when I came of age and realized that I was sexually attracted to men. So when my sister came out, I thought, Thank God, someone in this family can truly represent my passions and beliefs.”

Lena Dunham, accepting an award from the Point Foundation

So You Want To Be Dictator Of The World

So You Want To Be Dictator Of The World

You know those folks who just knew before they even left elementary school what they wanted to do with their lives? Or those kids in high school who had already declared majors that are absurdly specific, like bioelectrical engineering with a concentration in deep space nine applications, and when asked what they wanted to do with it they’d say, “I plan to expound upon Richard Hawking’s work and…

6 Things No One Tells You About Recovery From An Eating Disorder

6 Things No One Tells You About Recovery From An Eating Disorder by @pricehl

By Heather Price

*This post contains potential triggers for disordered eating*

When you are about to do something for the first time, no one really tells you the horrible things they’ve witnessed. They generally overload you with positive experiences; relive the great memories they had, and for the most part, fill you with excitement as you embark on a new journey. However, life is never just…

NEWS: How To Make Friends And Annex Regions By Vlad Putin

Ukraine still center of international attention. Pro-Russian forces have continued clashing with Ukrainian forces, with some Western officials pointing the finger at Moscow. Cities in Eastern Ukraine with large pro-Russian populations have recently seen calls for referendums to split with Ukraine. Meanwhile, Putin still doesn’t give a single shit about anything the U.S. says or does.

Over the past week, my roommate has been making hair bows like its going out of style, and selling them on my campus. She cranks out about 30 of these suckers a night, and it occurred to me that as a female of any age, the ability to make hair bows is a necessity. So she was kind enough to walk me through the process! (And check out the tutorial above for a more comprehensive how-to!)


  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Hair clips

Boston Strong: What Hate Can Teach Us About Love

Boston Strong: What Hate Can Teach Us About Love

The Boston Marathon has always been inspiring. You spend a day watching thousands of people conquer a major feat. Even if you’re not participating in the 26.2 mile race, the runner’s high is contagious. I’ve never seen so much motivation and encouragement at a single time. It’s positively beautiful, which is why last year’s attack was so horrific.

Cheers were quickly silenced by explosions on…

20 Movies To Watch In Your 20s

20 Movies to Watch in Your 20’s

Twenty-Something Tuesday


1. Do the Right Thing

The premise is simple—racial conflict erupts during the hottest day of the summer—but you’ll be on your own to draw conclusions. Spike Lee’s powerful film asks difficult questions about race and gentrification, all in a stylish and energetic form.

Baby Shoes

Carolina lay on the rainbow-colored carpet, the bristles ticking her arms. Sunlight struck the light catcher hanging outside the window and sent a cascade of colored dots throughout the room: blue on the walls, red on the floor, green on the ceiling. A bird chirped outside. A rocking chair with a blanket over an arm sat toward the back of the room. White clouds floated along the yellow walls,…

Orthorexia: Too Much Of A Good Thing

Orthorexia: Too Much Of A Good Thing

“I pursued wellness through healthy eating for years, but gradually I began to sense that something was going wrong. The poetry of my life was disappearing. My ability to carry on normal conversations was hindered by intrusive thoughts of food. The need to obtain meals free of meat, fat, and artificial chemicals had put nearly all social forms of eating beyond my reach. I was lonely and obsessed.…

It’s officially getting warmer on this half on of the hemisphere and we couldn’t be any more excited.
