Queer sex party chronicles: hi, I’m new here

The party would change my life, but I didn't know it yet. I went to the wrong house at first. Google Maps failed me and I knocked on someone else's door, dressed up and nervous, with a heavy bag of sex toys slung over my shoulder. When I peeked inside the front window, all I saw was an empty living room and a TV. No babes, no party. Amping myself up to go to a play party had already been challenging. It wasn't that I feared kissing strangers, or having sex or masturbating in front of ...

Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Rose Royal Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a very long way, so it was always better to use less and build up coverage–which was very doable–rather than try the reverse. I’d recommend using fluffy, synthetic or duo-fiber brushes, which...

Die besten Rasierer für den Intimbereich – empfohlen von Porno-Stars

Klar: Wann immer du in der rutschig-nassen Dusche mit einem scharfen Rasierer rumhantierst, musst du vorsichtig sein. Wenn du mit dieser Klinge aber unterhalb der Gürtellinie weiterwanderst, ist extreme Vorsichtig angesagt. Das ist eine Körperzone, in der sich kleine Schnitte und Kratzer besonders gemein anfühlen können, und wo vor allem krauses Haar besonders gern einwächst.  Lasst uns mal kurz überlegen: Welche Menschen könnten sich am besten mit der Schamhaarentfernung auskennen? Sprich: Wer...

The Problem With Lying At Work

Lying at work can do a lot of damage Image Credit: Cat Branchman Life is complicated and, yes, there are times when it is inconvenient to tell the truth. It can be as simple as one of you friends asking if you like the outfit that they are wearing (you don’t) or your boss asking if that report will be done by the end of the day (it won’t). It can be very easy to “bend the edges” or tell white, gray, or even black lies when we are at work. Our manager training does not teach us how...

Luna Huda Beauty Luna N.Y.M.P.H. Glaze Skin Glowing Perfector ($35.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light-medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous, lightly dewy sheen. It had medium, buildable color coverage that was more inclined to sheer out as the creamy consistency spread out across my skin. The texture was creamy, smooth, and moderately emollient, but on the lighter, slightly thinner side with some tackiness. It applied bet...

Perfume fairs are always great for discoveries, whether it's launches or new brands to explore.

Ich bin 27, hatte noch nie eine Beziehung & finde das völlig okay

Früher dachte ich immer, Romantik sei unvermeidlich. Wie der Eintritt in die Pubertät war eine Beziehung für mich immer so eine Art Meilenstein, den jede:r irgendwann erreicht. Jeder Jugendroman, jede TV-Serie, jeder Film befeuerte diese Vorstellung nur weiter. Romantische Liebe in all ihren Ausprägungen wird in so vielen Kulturen gefeiert, dass es mir als Jugendliche nicht mal in den Sinn kam, dass sie vielleicht nicht jede:r erlebt. Und doch bin ich hier: Ich bin 27 Jahre alt und hatte noch...

Luxe (238) Lancome Luxe (238) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft brown base with lighter, copper pearl that gave it a more metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer to medium color coverage, though it was labeled as a Cream and not a Sheer finish, so I was surprised by the lack of opacity. It felt more more like a sheer finish; it had more slip, wasn’t as thin or as tacky in feel, and the coverage had some trans...
