I’ve had the privilege of writing advice and perspectives for Em & Lo, a blog about “sex, love and everything in between.” These are snippets of my contributions.
What’s the best way for a woman to ask a guy out?
Two things to do when asking a guy out: 1) Be direct and 2) Get out of the way.
What do most guys think of feminism: a successful movement that’s not needed any more, an eternal campaign of whiney man-haters, or a philosophy that makes the world a better place for both men and women?
As far as what this guy thinks of feminism: it’s a good thing if my female friends, my past and future girlfriends, or my sister can decide for themselves what to study, where to work, whom to date, and how and when they decide to start a family — and have the men and wider society around them respect these decisions.
If a guy says he doesn’t like porn, is he lying?
As far as guys are concerned, our relationship with porn spans a spectrum, from shamelessly addicted (or, shamefully) to “I’m bored, there’s nothing else to do on the Internet.” One thing is certain: we like the real thing, with her soft skin and a mess of hair splayed over our pillow, worlds better than any digital imitation.
