Why I’m totally OK with being alone this Valentine’s Day (Seriously!)

Have you seen the 1998 movie Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett? It ends with Queen Elizabeth I realizing that all men are either gay or liars, then breaking up with her boyfriend and declaring herself a virgin. She ends up with full ownership over her body and, like, England. I’ll circle back to that. First, let’s revisit a time when I was also a virgin. It’s Valentine’s Day, 2004. I haven’t yet lost my virginity in the bathroom of a roller-skating rink. I haven’t yet broken up with my first b...

Creating a More Action-Oriented Character

Do you ever feel that your character is too hesitant and self-censoring? Maybe you get an idea to take action or to share something, and then another voice pops in your head and talks you out of it. Perhaps you straddle the fence for a while, pondering whether it’s wiser to take action or hold back, and much of the time you hold back. Perhaps you start to take action and then undo or delete what you’ve done because of that voice chiming with objections like these: I don’t really need to sh...

How to Wear Your Necklaces as a Bold Statement

When a person owns pieces of fine jewelry, they want them to be noticed when they are worn.

12 Watercolor Tattoos You'll Want To Get For Summer

When J.Lo was asked to give her thoughts on her ex Ben Affleck’s vibrant phoenix back tattoo — besides leading with "Awful!" — she gave a piece of advice: “His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful. You know what I mean? They should be cooler."Many people agree that body ink looks best when limited to a simple palette of black, gray, and other neutrals. However, there's one tattoo trend that might just change that misconception. Hugely popular in Japan and South Kor...

12 Female Tattoo Artists You Should Be Following On Instagram

It's no secret that young people — specifically young women — love tattoos. A decade ago, that was far from the truth, but today, more women than ever don't care what you think about them and their ink. But what about the artists tattooing them? Even though there are more women than ever flocking to tattoo parlors, the artists holding the needles remain predominantly male — a fact that's evident as you scroll through social media.But we think men already get enough attention, so we decided to r...

Sperm were the hot trend at London Fashion Week

Let’s talk about sex, baby! The biggest takeaway from London Fashion Week? Designers across the pond are all horned up. Take Ashley Williams, who showed in London the day after Valentine’s.

"Dana Densmore, a founding member of the separatist group Cell 16, took issue with the idea that sex was a basic human need."

"In 1968 in a journal appropriately titled 'No More Fun and Games,' she wrote that 'guerrillas' had important things to do and couldn’t be sidetracked by sex, which was 'inconvenient, time-consuming, energy-draining and irrelevant.' Romantic love was a problem, too. Ti-Grace Atkinson, a radical feminist philosopher, positioned it as the enemy of independence and insecurity. 'What is love but need?' she wrote in 1968. 'What is love but fear?' Other early feminists weren’t against romance in a per...

21 Food Gifts We're Crushing On This Valentine's Day

Food and Valentine's Day are basically the oldest of old married couples. The two have gone hand in hand since we can remember and one without the other just doesn't quite make much sense.
