Marriage is forever. Sometimes. Sometimes not. But one thing is for certain: after a while, the sex simply goes. Whether familiarity breeds contempt or the grass is always greener, after a certain number of years, it becomes more and more difficult to keep those sexual sparks flying. Wedded sexual bliss ends for a... read more A Marriage of Inconvenience

Up until the 1970s, the term "homosexuality" was still on record as a mental illness. And though homosexuality has moved well beyond the closet, though it has been embraced by the media–"Will and Grace," "Queer Eye For the Straight Guy," "The L Word," "Queer as Folk," even the HBO hit, "The Sopranos," which has its... read more Because They Can

Recently, my friend, Carol, was a groomsman in James' wedding in New York. Yes, a groomsman, not a bridesmaid. She stood next to James, whose best friends were mostly women, thrilled for him, but harboring a secret melancholy. At the reception, she sat among the other bridesmaids and groomsmen, while James' cousin... read more (Un)Happily Ever After

People like to splash, plash and push, but splosh? Bill Shipton, founder of Splosh magazine, says sploshing is "best defined as lurking around with messy or wet things - food, mud or paint - or just getting wet with your clothes on. Sploshing forms two categories. There are people who do it in a sensual way, as... read more Sploshing

There you are: you've dimmed the lights, lit a candle, and put on some music - you're all ready to perform - but when the time comes to show her how much she turns you on, you just can't get it up. At least, you can't get it up like you used to and you can't stay hard for as long as either of you would like. You might... read more Male Impotence (or Erectile Dysfunction)

It is said that knowledge is power. It is also said that power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Both statements make sense in and of themselves, but when taken together, they send a terribly mixed message, especially as far as relationships are concerned. When we first get to know someone, we ask... read more The Ex Factor

The end of any relationship is difficult, whether you've spent years together or just a few months. Love isn't put to rest overnight and can linger long after you've said goodbye. Some experts say it takes half as long as the relationship lasted to process it and move on. Others say grief holds itself unaccountable... read more Now It's Time to Say Goodbye

When you came together all those months or years ago, how could you possibly have ever predicted the messy end of love? What began with flirtation led into infatuation and there you were, pining away for this person, this stranger, you barely knew.

When Jim called his parents in Wyoming to say he'd fallen in love with a brain surgeon, you could've heard his mother's gleeful shrieks on Uranus. Over the years, they'd had their skirmishes, usually about her inability to accept his gayness. They never spoke about it and if they did, it was at Jim's request. Now, he... read more If He Could've Gotten Pregnant, He Would've Kept the Baby

A famous star popularized the notion that "it's not having what you want, it's wanting what you got" that made life fuller and richer. Yes, words to live by, yet somehow impossible for many of us to get right. Why don't we ever seem to grasp the fragile beauty of what we've got until it's gone? Why do we often... read more Wanting What You've Got

It was late and they were standing on Simone's small balcony again, staring out at Chinatown and the Seasons Greeting sign in Little Italy, strung up far too early in the year. The end of November, the air was unusually cold, but that didn't stop Daniel from enjoying a scotch and Simone from smoking a cigarette. They... read more I've Slept With Girls Far Hotter Than You

The cynic will tell you that romance has been dead for decades (like the theater, like book publishing) and until Chloe met Jack, she would've said the same thing. Her yearlong romance with him began as a bike ride over the Williamsburg Bridge on a cool, misty evening in May. She arrived at his apartment, met his cat... read more Undetectable

Do you feel differently now that you've bid a fond (or not-so-fond) farewell to last year? Was it a good year, bad, somewhere in-between? Did you change what needed to be changed, make amends where you needed to make amends, open up or close off in unexpected ways? Did you say I love you more often than not - and mean... read more Ask Yourself This

So we've all been there, right? We're dating someone and find ourselves thinking about him constantly, calling too much, showing up at his workplace when we know we shouldn't, fantasizing about the rest of our lives together.

Sex, sex, sex. Sometimes, it's all we ever think about and sometimes, it's all we ever do, especially in the throes of a new relationship. Friends have told me about their all-nighters, the hours and hours of sex, that come morning, they did it all over again, he on top, she on top, the missionary, doggie-style, in... read more The Men From The Boys

Nothing is more daunting than planning for New Year's Eve, right?

We are entering a period of great reflection, as we rush toward these last few weeks of 2005. Some of us will look back at this past year with fondness, others with regret.

Having finished her burger and fries, a girlfriend of mine turned to me quite suddenly, incredibly animated about foreplay, a topic she'd been contemplating recently.

Though a lot can be said about the differences in the sexes, nothing perhaps captures it better than the age-old adage: A man falls in love with the woman he's attracted to and a woman is attracted to the man she falls in love with.

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, masturbation is "the excitement of the sexual organs, often culminating in orgasm." For men, this might occur as many as several times a day (if you have such free time), and is a wonderful stress-reliever for the usually sweet, albeit aggressive Alpha male. For women... read more A Stroke of Good Luck

As Sarah Jessica Parker, who made the role of sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw famous on "Sex in The City," so aptly said, "People go to casinos for the same reason they go on blind dates-hoping to hit the jackpot.

"David Levinson is a young writer who has mastered all the elements that make up a classically structured short story: drama, suspense, humor, empathy. There are no fancy pyrotechnics or meta-fictional devices here. He's a neo-traditionalist so the stories are direct, emotional and compulsively readable, plus there's enough mystery and action in them to propel at least a dozen novels."<br>Bret Easton Ellis
