This might be the best video we've ever seen. It all started when YouTube personality and fitness guru Davey Wavey posted an ad on Craigslist looking for women who had never really seen their vaginas before. We know, it sounds creepy at first, but his goal was surprisingly sincere: to help women face their vagina fears and learn to love and accept their bodies.
You may not want to put your partner on a pedestal. When someone feels too idealized by their romantic partner, their relationship satisfaction suffers, according to a new study published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.
Just because you’re coupled up doesn’t mean that you won’t still get butterflies when a tall, dark stranger asks for your phone number. But surprisingly, this kind of attention can change the way you feel about your current bond. When people in committed relationships believe attractive outsiders are interested in them, their relationship satisfaction and commitment actually decreases, according to a new study published in The Journal of Social Psychology.
Well this is refreshing: It turns out, both men and women find women more attractive when they have less makeup on, according to a new study published in The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology.
For the study, researchers recruited 44 women to model for photographs. They presented the models with a wide range of makeup and asked them to apply it as if they were going out for the night. The models were photographed pre- and post-makeup application.

Looks like more ladies are trying out some good vibrations: Women are much more likely to buy a vibrator than they used to be, and they're especially interested in buying the newer, subtler-looking sex toys, according to a new survey published in the May 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping UK.
You've heard the old saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but trust us, you've never seen proof like this. Men and women have very different ideas of what the perfect man and perfect woman looks like, according to a new poll conducted by British lingerie company, BlueBella. We reported on a similar study last year regarding the perfect female face according to men and women, but this new survey goes full-body.
BlueBella had 500 men and 500 women pull their favorite features from celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and Hugh Jackman to create their own idea of the perfect man and perfect woman. And it resulted in four very different (and slightly unnatural-looking) people.
Emma Watson is about to drop some serious knowledge about love and dating. In a recent interview with Elle, she mentioned one of her favorite lines from her last movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower: "We accept the love we think we deserve." Deep, right?
Apparently, America is suffering from a serious sex drought: 22 percent of American women aren’t having sex with their spouses, according to a new survey conducted by AshleyMadison.com.
They surveyed over 74,000 people from 26 countries and unfortunately, American women were the least likely to be getting laid. But since AshleyMadison.com is a website for people seeking extramarital affairs, these findings are obviously a little skewed. The lack of sex could be due to the fact that they're busy getting busy with someone who isn't their husband, or their sexless marriage could be the reason they went on AshleyMadison in the first place.
By now you probably know that women are extremely analytical; they read into everything you say or do. Which is why it is so important that you are sending her the right signals. So if you've just had a horrible date and thought your disinterest is obvious but she isn't getting the hint, you could be making one of these moves that say "I'm interested" without you even knowing it.
Was singledom keeping you slim? Looks that way: Married men in their mid-20s are more likely to be obese than their single counterparts, says a recent study in the journalFamilies, Systems, & Health.
The reason: Once you’ve tied the knot, you may be less concerned about your appearance because you’re no longer trying to attract a romantic partner, explains study author Jerica Berge Ph.D., MPH.
But don’t blame your babe just yet. Instead, carry these three single-guy habits over into married life to stay fit and remain on top of your health.
You’re ready to snooze; she’s ready to schmooze—yet according to research from the University of Connecticut, the brain may be to blame for this post-orgasmic disconnect.
Oxytocin—also known as the cuddle hormone—is released in the brain during climax and creates the desire to connect with your partner, says lead study author Amanda Denes, Ph.D.
We’ve all been there; sitting across from someone during a first date, wishing there were a way you could have known before you left your house on a rainy Sunday night that you were going to regret it.
There may not be a foolproof method for determining a date’s success in advance. But the few hours before a first date could offer some very clear red flags.
You may have just thrown down serious bills on dinner, complimented her all night, and used your best moves when kissing her, but you aren't in the clear yet. Surprisingly, these are not the things that matter most to women when she’s deciding whether or not she wants to have sex with you tonight. Her decision comes down to the tiniest things you do and say, and she holds all the cards. If you commit any of these crimes, sex will be off the table in as little time it takes you to rip her clothes off.
Beware those weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's when breakups skyrocket. As we're reaching the tail end of this precarious season, some of us undoubtedly are finding ourselves casualties of the trend. But, fear not. We bring you stories from women who worked through their breakups, well, just a little differently than most.
From upping your workout schedule to taking an exotic vacation, there are many ways to deal. That being said, some breakup rituals are a little more extreme and unique than others. Sometimes it hurts so bad that a run on the treadmill or that brand-new-you hairstyle just won’t cut it and you find yourself doing the strangest things to get your mind off of “he or she who shall not be named.” But, hey, whatever works.
