Live Blog: My Boyfriend Is Staying At A Cabin With A Gruesome History, And His Texts Are Really Starting To Freak Me Out…

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 08:15 PM PDT

Hello everyone. I don’t like being melodramatic, but my boyfriend is spending the night in a cabin with some pretty dark rumors, and things have been getting kinda freaky. I really need some advice.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a rising college senior, and I live with my boyfriend not far from the campus we both attend. We’ve been pretty serious — especially after he’s gotten back from a study abroad.

My boyfriend Eric is a bit of a thrill seeker. He always ropes me into watching these awful horror movies that I absolutely hate. He’s one of those guys who would prefer something “interesting” happen than just something “good,” so I wasn’t surprised AT ALL when he told me that he was going to spend the night at a cabin that was rumored to be haunted.

I try not to get super nervous about this shit, but I just can’t help it. Before leaving, Eric told me he would text me once he got to the cabin, but they had been gone for three hours, and nothing (it was supposed to be like a two hour drive MAX). He finally messaged me, but they still weren’t even there yet.

1 FIXED 2

This is when I first started to worry. Honestly, as embarrassed as I am, my first thought drifted to his faithfulness. I am super insecure and it’s something I’m trying to work on, but I still spent fifteen minutes or so after this exchange worrying if this “time lapse” might have something to do with another woman. After sitting myself down and reminding myself how strong our relationship is, and how great a guy Eric is (also it doesn’t really make any sense), I finally stopped being fucking ridiculous and tried to go about my evening.

I went to get dinner with my parents, which is when I got the next string of texts:

2final 3final

Apparently, the park with the cabin is a very under-funded public park with a super tiny budget. I’ve heard there’s only like a handful of full-time rangers and overseers. That’s why they have a system where you pick up the key to your place in a “box” (idk what that means exactly) rather than checking in at a lodge or administrative building.

I tried to keep it cool with Eric, but I felt kinda uneasy For reference, our original conversation (above) was around 5:30PM. Our second convo was just about an hour later, around 6:40PM.

I was back home and relaxing when I got these messages:

Some side info here: Eric’s mom passed away about a year and a half ago. She had cancer, and it was an excruciatingly long process. She was actually diagnosed only a few months after we started dating. She was a really great woman, and understandably, Eric really struggles with her passing from time to time.

It was weird that he suddenly became fixated with it now, out in the wilderness (probably drinking) with his best friends, but honestly, my fear for his mental health temporarily crowded out my fear of the paranormal.

But then…

That picture really freaked me out. Like that bruise looks nasty — like he fell off a motorbike or something super extreme. Where did it come from? I’ve been spending the last hour Googling information about the cabin and its associated rumors, but haven’t come up with much.

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 11.33.14 AM

This is the only mention of the cabin that I’ve managed to find on the internet. The website is extremely old, and looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2004 (if not earlier). Despite how… not credible the site looks, reading the “story” behind the cabin made me shudder.

I tried to play it off subtly. I didn’t want him to think I was actually obsessing over this, but I dunno… I was just about to head to bed when I got this last message:

11

I haven’t heard back since. This message was originally delivered just before 9:00PM. I started working on putting this all together around 9:15, and it’s now almost ten.

What should I do? Am I overreacting? Part of me wants to get in a car and drive up there. Part of me thinks I’m crazy. Does anybody have experience with the paranormal or, god forbid, demons?

UPDATE 1:

So, Eric finally texted me back, but it doesn’t really make me feel that much better….

12 13 14

I guess we see what happens next. I’m really freaking out.

Update 2:

I haven’t bothered my boyfriend since he last texted me, because who knows what he’s dealing with. I have done some research though, and I’m becoming more and more convinced that something…paranormal…is happening up in that cabin. And it seems demonic.

Apparently the easiest way to kill a demon is to invoke religion. I’ve been effectively agnostic for the last few years, but I just unearthed by old Bible I was given as a confirmation present. I dunno, just having it next to me makes me feel a little better.

Hopefully this is all a dream / joke / misunderstanding. But I dunno.

Update 3:

15

I’m getting really freaked out now…

UPDATE 4:

21 20

I have never been this scared in my life. For the last ten minutes I’ve been re-reading this messages, hoping, praying that Eric will respond. Will say something. I would give anything to see three little dots at the bottom of my phone right now.

I can’t tell you all how much I’ve appreciated your advice. For everyone who’s stayed with me, and kept with this, thank you so, SO much. However, I am going against most of your advice. I can’t let Eric die up there. I can’t do nothing.

I found the address of the start park online, and directions to the cabin scribbled on the back of some receipt paper. I’m bringing my Bible, my rosary, and all the courage I can muster. When I come back with Eric, I will make sure to update this post. TC mark

16 Women Reveal What It’s Like Having Sex With A Micropenis

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 08:00 PM PDT

Look Catalog
Look Catalog

1. “I love him, but it’s hard…”

I feel terrible. I love this guy and he does everything he can for me. He’s the perfect partner in almost every way. Unfortunately, his penis is abnormally small, 3 inches erect. I was disappointed at first, but I really thought I could work with it. We’ve been together 6 months now and I’ve never had an orgasm from penetration.

He does other things to make up for it, but as time goes on, it’s getting tiring. We’ve tried everything from extended oral to toys and every position imaginable. I miss the ease and closeness of sex I’ve had with past partners. I love him but I’m finding it difficult. I feel mean and shallow for having these thoughts.

2. “It wasn’t satisfying”

I dated a guy for awhile after a long time of flirting. He was extremely attractive to me, both physically and mentally. We got along fantastic and he always used to joke about having a small penis. I always thought, well it can’t be that small. Well it was. I’m talking like…maybe 2 inches long and 1 inch wide while fully erect.

I stuck with him for awhile and while he was good at other things, it just got to the point that it wasn’t satisfying. I felt bad and let the relationship go on longer than I probably should have, getting to the point of dreading sex, but I kind of felt like a shit at the same time because everything else was wonderful and it wasn’t his fault he was born that way.

3. “It wasn’t pleasing to look at”

Dated a guy with a micro-penis. I went to give him head and it was like the length of my pinky. It was kinda dark so I thought “okay he needs to be warmed up a bit.” But it was already hard when I touched it. I couldn’t do it. I just…its not that it wouldn’t have worked or anything because I’ve heard it can be pleasurable. But it wasn’t pleasing to look at.

4. “I hate that my boyfriend has a small penis”

I know that as a woman I’m not allowed to say anything like this, but I can’t not say it anymore. I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year (we celebrated our anniversary 2 weeks ago, actually). Other than our sex life, we have a great relationship. We like the same things, he makes me laugh, he’s a great guy. All around, we are perfect together.

The problem is that in the time we’ve been together, I feel like I haven’t had sex once. I can barely feel him when we are together. He goes down on me all the time and we use toys a lot, but it’s just not the same. In the past, I guess I was blessed with guys who were ‘well hung’ and I could orgasm from just having sex. I miss that. We’re so great together, this just isn’t fair. It’s so frustrating.

5. “I broke up with my boyfriend over his cock”

He was tiny. Like four inches long and 1 inch in diameter. I’ve never seen such a small dick in my life. He was a nice guy but I just couldn’t do it. When we first had sex and he pulled it out I wanted to leave but I felt bad. I gave him a handjob and it was so awkward… He kept trying to talk dirty and saying stuff like “You love my cock don’t you?” And I ended up laughing at him.

I told him I just wasn’t into dirty talk which was a complete lie. I broke up with him a couple weeks ago and I feel so much better not having to deal with him. I told him we just weren’t compatible but I think he knew why I broke up with him since I kept saying no to sex with him.

6. “I know penetration isn’t everything…but…”

Several years ago, I went on a date with a guy who I met on OKCupid, and it went pretty well. We went back to his place and started fooling around, and I soon discovered that he had a micropenis. I was turned off, but felt like it would be mean to stop because of that so we went ahead and had sex, though I couldn’t feel anything.

I didn’t see him again after that… told him that I just didn’t feel like we had good chemistry. It was a very awkward situation all around. I know that penetration isn’t everything, but I personally like it a lot and don’t feel like I could have a satisfying sex life with someone who has a micropenis.

7. “I’d never pass judgment”

I have quite a bit of experience in this area. Not boyfriends though – but sexual partners.

One of the guys was pretty good in bed… he made up for his lack of size in many other different ways … he was great with his tongue, fingers, adept at using toys.

The other one was pretty abysmal however, I think that was down to the fact that he had much less interest in sex and being good at sex though. He could have been as good as the other guy, he just didn’t educate himself.

I’m a pretty firm believer that size doesn’t matter and that it is purely down to the individuals interest in sex and willingness to learn. I mean, even a guy with a huge penis has to get good at using it and not hurting the person he’s with. We’re all born with different physical attributes – and it’s down to the individual how they make the best of that. I’ve been with guys of all different shapes and sizes and some of the guys with massive wangs have been some of my worst sexual experiences, some of the guys with smaller bits have been some of my best.

I’d never pass judgement on someone because of their size though – they might be great in bed or they might be rubbish… same as a guy with an average cock or a huge cock.

8. “The size didn’t matter”

I’ve been with lots of guys. A few of them had extremely tiny penises (like micropenis status), and I ended things with them for entirely different reasons. One was an asshole and the other just a really weird person who I couldn’t connect with on any level. That being said, I definitely would have been willing to work around the small penis if I really felt a connection with either of them. But the fact that I didn’t, along with the tiny penis, was a deal breaker for me.

9. “His penis wasn’t the dealbreaker…”

I’ll never forget this one guy I was involved with. He was in law school and extremely hot. Worked out a lot and what did it for me was that he could easily pick me up and maneuver me around and stuff.

Then I found out he had a 2″ penis. I’m pretty small down there (I think 5″ in huge inside me. Much more and it’s too painful.) so it wasn’t a deal breaker. The deal breaker was that he came the instant he was inside me. Then he tried to use the excuse that….a condom actually made him cum faster and would try to insist that we try without a condom (yeah, no).

I would have been willing to work more at the sex, but things ended because he was really a douchebag. I used to have these terrible thoughts, “How can a guy with such a small penis be SUCH an asshole?”

And in my experience, guys with actual big dicks, tend to be way less-assholeish and smaller-penis guys try to make up for it in douchebaggery or something. I dunno…but somewhere the wires get crossed.

10. “I’m very in love with him, but he can’t sexually please me”

I’m [24f] in love with my boyfriend [26m] of 3 years, but everyone I talk to says I should leave him.

I’ll start by saying I’m very in love with him. He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me and the thought of not being with him makes me feel sick. Things are great outside of the bedroom, but there’s only one problem, he can’t sexually please me.

I can only orgasm from PIV. (Weird I know, for me its the feeling of skin against skin and feeling full )

Fingering, oral, and clitoral stimulation are great, but I can’t orgasm that way, even alone w/ a dildo. Needless to say, I haven’t had an orgasm in over 3 years and it’s tearing me apart.

He has a micropenis (barely 2″ erect) and when we try doggy or me on top (the only way he can be inside me) I don’t feel anything at all.

I’ve brought up using a hollow strap on but he feels like it degrades him. He’s an otherwise confident guy, great looks, athletic, good career, but extremely sensitive about his size. I don’t want to hurt him and even bringing it up in the context of trying things that might work agitate him.

He’s decent at oral and fingering, but I can’t cum from that alone. While he orgasms every time we have sex, not being able to do so bothers me even though it’s not his fault or something he can change.

A friend suggested asking him is we could have an open relationship, but he’s kind of an emotional guy and I think he’d see that as a “you’re not good enough/ I don’t love you” type of thing.

I’m open to ANY suggestions you may have. I know that sexual incompatibility could be the issue here, but I would be devastated to lose him and I wouldn’t be able to live with myself over the damage it would cause him if I said “your penis is too small for me to stay with you” (even nicely).

11. “Some of the best sex”

Some of the best sex I had was with a guy who had two inches to work with. He made me feel like the sexiest woman on the planet, and the foreplay was astronomical. For a lot of girls, the psychological aspects of sexual arousal are more important than the physical aspects :)

12. “Penis size doesn’t mean anything”

The best endowed guy I’ve ever banged is also the hands down worst partner I’ve ever been with. (And yeah, he got more than one ‘chance’ to prove otherwise… Egh. Bad memories!). This guy is the only guy I know who consistently gets nothing but terrible reviews from all the women who’ve been unlucky enough to swing with him in our little circle.

Sure, his dick was big, but his technique was terrible, he refused to try anything to improve, and every single person I know who banged him reported feeling kinda weird, dirty, used afterwards …and not in the sexy way :(

On the opposite end I’ve had a lot of fun with guys who were suffering from whiskey dick, had smaller penises who knew how to make for a good time using more than just a penis alone. Some guys seem to think using only penis alone to get their partner off is some kind of point of pride, but it’s way less fun if you hold yourself back like that! Seriously penis length basically doesn’t mean anything if you know what you’re doing :)

13. “Terrible disaster”

I had a brief high school fling with a guy that has a micropenis. We tried to have sex (first time) in his car and it was a terrible disaster. There were problems with penetration (there was none), the condom didn’t fit on his member, and when we gave up and I went down on him, he just kept apologizing that he was so small. I honestly felt bad for him- not about his penis, I felt bad that he was embarrassed. He was and still is a really nice guy. Honestly . . . rock the small dick’s guys. Someone will love it . . . just don’t do it in a car.

14. “I enjoy small”

I’ve slept with two people who were about 2.5-3in erect. Not sure if that’s micro. I really enjoyed both. I have a kind of short cervix and always worry about it hurting if it’s bigger. Was kind of teasing with just that length. My SO has a huge penis and I’d rather it was much smaller.

15. “Less than a roll of dimes”

I’m a gay dude who dated a guy who I’m almost positive had one. I’ve seen a good deal of dicks in my life so it was kind of shocking to see one that was so…tiny. You know those rolls of change in a cash register? It was less than a change roll of dimes at full hardness.

I tried to pretend like it didn’t bother me. Deepthroating was a cakewalk, but riding it or jerking it off was so lackluster. It’s just not a lot to work with as far as volume and surface area go. He was a great guy and I really really liked him, but having little to no sensation from sex was really unfulfilling. Also he wasn’t willing to bottom ever, so it left us with very few options. It ended up not working out. I felt terrible about it, but that’s the reality of it.

16. “Hot guy, great personality, small dick.”

Recently started dating a super hot guy with a great personality . Took it to the bedroom and he pulled out a micro pencil dick. Now idc about size so we went at it .

First a blow job that was so easy it wasn’t even enjoyable for me. I really really love giving head , having my throat stuffed, gagging and swallowing cum…. But this was just horrible. It was like sucking a straw.

Okay whatever let’s get straight to sex. He couldn’t even go in my pussy hole.

Granted I am tight and haven’t fucked a lot (13 times) so he couldn’t find the hole and just started fucking my pussy lips and kept swearing to me it was in. It wasn’t lol. I kept telling him where my hole was and showing him with my finger and his dick was so thin it couldn’t go but he continued to hot dog my pussy………so I’m like okay I got this! I tried to ride him but it was like inserting a tampon and by this point I’m bored.

We tried doggy and he couldn’t reach so he just put his dick in my ass cheeks (it couldn’t reach my asshole) he came twice and was upset I didn’t squirt .

Worst sex of my life and I’ve been with an extremely dominating self pleaser who cared nothing about me.

Now I’m gonna be honest I dumped him the next day. He walked away so cocky and like he just gave me the most pleasure.. When he couldn’t even fuck my hole when I was dripping wet. I’ve always believed it’s not the size of the boat.. But the motion of the ocean. I’ve even heard micros were the best lovers…

He was a nice guy. His micro pencil dick didn’t alter my view of him….But after that I wasn’t attracted to him at all. His dick was so little and he thought he was a God send. It killed the vibes. TC mark

27 Real Honeymoon Sex Stories From Men And Women Who Stayed Virgins Until Marriage

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 07:45 PM PDT

1.

“We were both pretty giddy and a bit nervous. She made me wait in the bedroom while she got changed. She came out wearing bright red footie-pajamas. It broke the tension and we proceeded to have sex twice. I was nervous so I lasted longer than I do now. Then we went to Wendy’s and ordered chicken nuggets. It was a good night.”

2.

“Well, we found out about her mild LATEX ALLERGY! No joke. Also, no one told my wife to pee after sex, so we got to go to the ER on our honeymoon for a kidney infection.

Other than that, it was super duper.”

3.

“It was totally awesome.

The day was total crap. Got married in the middle of winter. Everyone in the wedding party, her parents, my parents, and most of our guests all had the stomach flu. I’m talking stuff out both ends every twenty minutes, can’t even keep down medicine, headache, backache, the whole works. It was like my insides had been invaded by a demonic poo-flinging chimp with a chestburster sidekick. I was sure I’d end up in the hospital. I didn’t though, and we made it through the ceremony with the bag in my pocket unused. God, she was beautiful.

So we were both sick and weren’t really sure if it was even going to happen. But it did, and it was awesome. It was awkward too, and that really didn’t matter to us. It didn’t need to be perfect, you know? We were happy because we had gotten through that terrible day and were going to be together for a good long time, and it was only going to get better from there.”

4.

“Our wedding night was actually pretty great. We both knew going in that there was likely to be some pain for me, but i also knew a lot of it was going to be psychological. He was awesome, the whole thing lasted a few hours. It took a few tries before we were able to get things going all the way, but we both thought it was pretty great for a first time. We definitely had fun with the foreplay. there was a hot tub in our room (vegas, baby) and there may or may not have been a wheelbarrow attempt. A few weeks later, though, we really found our groove. I think the biggest thing is just communication and having a partner who is interested in meeting your needs. If you’re both looking out for each other, then everyone ends up happy.”

5.

“We were as prepared as we probably could be. Weeks (maybe even months) before the wedding, my wife went to her OBGYN and talked about preparing for sex. She was given a series of tubes (ha) of varying size that helped stretch her out. They basically looked like cheap dildos. They start out small and she would insert it like a tampon. This helped stretch her out.

We planned a simple wedding day: wedding ceremony and a luncheon afterwards. We went straight to the hotel after the luncheon. We weren’t really tired at all, but we were both extremely excited. She slipped into some lingerie, and instructed me to wait on the bed. We started out by simply exploring each other….pretty normal foreplay. We decided to try our first time without any lube.

Honestly, everything was great that first time.

I was delicate with her, and she had no problems with her tightness. She loved it (even though she didn’t orgasm), and I loved it too.

We ended up having sex three times that evening, and then she woke me up at 4am to do it again.

We’ve both gotten better as we’ve better learned what pleasure the other.

But that first night was great. We have amazing memories of it.

I wouldn’t have done it another way for myself.”

6.

“It was actually pretty terrible. It hurt her a lot, I barely got the tip in before she was crying and begging me to stop… So we did. We had a bath together instead, and fell asleep holding each other.

Tried again the next night and it was a little better.

Real sex didn’t happen until night 4, and I came in about 4 minutes. She enjoyed it, but didn’t have an orgasm until about 4 months later.

Young awkward sex is bad. Being married doesn’t magically make it good.”

101 Things I Wish I Had Known About Sex A Hell Of A Lot Earlier

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 07:00 PM PDT

1.

It makes absolutely ZERO sense to fake it.

2.

You’re not going to understand your own body for a while, and that’s okay.

3.

But once you do, it’s totally cool to ask for what you know works for you.

4.

Actually it’s more than cool, it’s how you’ll avoid feeling like you need to fake it.

5.

There’s more than one kind of orgasm.

6.

And they’re going to feel different! That’s cool – they’re supposed to.

7.

It’s hard to combine them (some people can’t!) but if you do, it’s pretty crazy.

8.

You should never feel embarrassed or weird about telling someone what you need them to do in order to get off.

9.

But vice versa, care about your partner. Ask them questions too.

10.

Never assume that because they aren’t saying anything or asking for something, that there isn’t something else you could do.

11.

Lube is your friend.

12.

I mean…it warrants a second one because SERIOUSLY. Lube. Is. Your. Friend.

13.


(Lube is your friend.)

14.

The whole “sometimes it hurts at first but you’ll get used to it” is bullshit. If something hurts something is probably wrong.

15.

There’s no shame in saying, “This feels weird can we try something different?”

16.

You’re never going to know whether or not you like something unless you try it.

17.

But, if something doesn’t appeal to you that’s more than okay.

18.

Bodies are weird and are going to make weird noises at inopportune times.

19.

Sometimes for seemingly no reason. Just roll with it.

20.

Shower sex isn’t all it’s cracked up to be most of the time.

21.

Like it can be fun, but it’s also really slippery.

22.

ALSO. Water? Not the same as lube. Not even close.

23.

Trim your nails.

24.

And make sure your partner trims their nails too.

25.

If a guy says he needs magnums he’s probably lying.

26.

But it’s cool of you to have them around just in case he isn’t.

27.

On that note: never rely on a guy to bring condoms. Just have your own.

28.

And if he insists, “But I’m clean!” before you’ve had the bareback discussion, do not have sex with him.

29.

Always get consent. A simple, “Is this okay?” can help make everyone feel better and safer.

30.

Wash your sheets more often than you think you should. It’s better that way.

31.

Stairs can help assist with standing sex when there is a significant height difference.

32.

Same with couches, ottomans, counters, and even a well placed railing.

33.

You are going to have some clothes that get ruined. Whether it be due to ripping, stain-age, or smells that will never go away. It’s a hazard of having sex.

34.

Learning how to masturbate to orgasm will be one of the funnest things you will ever do. Never let anyone shame you for being able to fuck yourself better than they will ever be able to.

35.

Keeping breath mints in your sex drawer/sex box is a godsend.

36.

Same with wet wipes.

37.

And bandaids. Hey, you never know.

38.

STIs are actually pretty common, and (usually) pretty easy to treat.

39.

Which is why you should be honest with your partner, your doctor, YOURSELF, and get tested.

40.

Yes, even if you and your partner are both the same gender.

41.

Condoms and preventive measures aren’t just for hetero sex. Just do your part and be safe.

42.

If you’re going to buy sex toys, you also have to buy sex toy cleaner. It’s non-negotiable.

43.

Porn lied to you. Seriously.

44.

The reason they look THAT good when they’re having sex is because they’re professionals. So when you make a sex tape and are like, “Shit why does my stomach do that?!” it’s because you’re a normal human and haven’t been lit or edited or told where to go. It’s fine.

45.

Also make sure YOU’RE the one who keeps the sex tape.

46.

If they’re “not really into foreplay” you don’t need to be into them.

47.

Because there’s no such thing as too much foreplay. Bless.

48.

It is perfectly normal for your sex drive to ebb and flow, and same with your sexual desire for a specific person. It doesn’t mean anything is broken or over, it just means you’ve been together or doing it for a while. It’s fine.

49.

But if you stop wanting someone all together, it probably means there’s a bigger issue at hand and you need to address it. Don’t drag it out.

50.

If someone can’t give consent, no one should touch them. And if someone does it and touches them or does anything with them anyway, they’re a rapist.

51.

It will take you a long time to be able to say the word rape and that’s okay. You are allowed to take your time to heal.

52.

And you’re also allowed to laugh during sex and cry during sex and take breaks just to talk during sex when and while you’re healing. It’s fine. It’s MORE than fine, it’s great. Because it means you’re healing.

53.

Being able to laugh with your partner while also messing around is the sign that you’ve found something pretty special.

54.

But never laugh AT them when they’re naked. That’s just fucking mean.

55.

You don’t have to let someone sleep over at your place just because you had sex with them.

56.

Same goes with letting them use your shower. (And your brand new shampoo.)

57.

Or eat your food.

58.

Seriously you can just tell them to leave. It’s fine.

59.

There is no such thing as spontaneous anal sex. It times time, and preparation.

60.

And your best friend: lube!

61.

Sex is kind of like riding a bike. Once you learn how to do it, you kind of always know how to do it.

62.

But, you don’t want to go so long without sex that the idea of it freaks you out.

63.

Sometimes you will feel so connected to another person that it overwhelms you. It doesn’t make you “gross” or a “sap.” It just means you’re human.

64.

And on the flip, sometimes you’ll have AMAZING sex with someone who outside of the bedroom annoys the fuck out of you. It’s fine.

65.

Your sexuality belongs to you and no one else. If you feel it shifting and changing and morphing, that’s perfectly okay and you don’t owe anyone an explanation about it.

66.

And you can label yourself however you want.

67.

If it confuses someone and they want to talk about it constructively and openly, great. If they just want to tell you how your label is wrong, they can gtfo.

68.

As long as you’re into it, your partner is into it, and you guys are having a good time? A label and what anyone else thinks is irrelevant.

69.

50 Shade of Grey is an unbelievably inaccurate representation of the BDSM community.

70.

In fact, if it started as fanfic, it’s not a good idea to get sex advice from it.

71.

You aren’t stupid for not knowing what something is.

72.

But Googling it can probably save you a lot of embarrassment.

73.

Strangers are going to call you a slut and whore for being sexually sure of yourself online. Ignore them.

74.

…Seriously just ignore them.

75.

If something is advertised as having a “tingly sensation” that means it’s going to BURN. Leave it on the shelf.

76.

Guys will never stop doing the “alphabet” down there.

77.

Yes, you will always start giggling.

78.

Virginity is a social construct and has nothing to do with your worth.

79.

It’s up to you to decide what your boundaries are and what’s important to you. No one else gets to make those decisions.

80.

You’re probably not going to get a comprehensive sex education in school. So it’s up to you to ask questions.

81.

The female anatomy is rarely talked about and, when it is, it’s often talked about incorrectly. So again, you’re probably going to have to teach yourself a lot of stuff.

82.

Just because someone says they love you, even if they say it while they’re inside you, doesn’t mean you have to say it back.

83.

Sex is not just a p in a v. It can be whatever constitutes as “sex” for you and whoever you’re doing it with.

84.

Birth control is really confusing and there are a lot of different brands out there that will all make your body feel a little bit different. There may be some trial and error involved.

85.

You are allowed to say no or change your mind literally whenever.

86.

Yes, even if you’ve already started.

87.

Guys get very into sexting.

88.

No, they don’t realize you’re probably eating chips while doing it.

89.

If you don’t want to have period sex, that’s totally fine. Don’t listen to that boy who says, “Can we just like..put an old towel down?”

90.

BUT if you’re one of those women who’s more aroused during that time of the month, go for it. Just be ready to hop into the shower after because it might get messy.

91.

In fact maybe be ready to hop into the shower after sex in general because sometimes, it gets really messy.

92.

Especially if you’re using lube.

93.

Some of those crazy sex positions where you’re basically a human pretzel are really fun, but sometimes you’ll get accidentally kicked in the face.

94.

There’s a thing that’s basically like a second puberty that you’ll probably hit around 24 and you’re going to feel like you’ll never have enough sex.

95.

But trust me, you will.

96.

Most people exaggerate how much sex they’re having. It’s an insecurity thing.

97.

Because spoiler alert: everyone is a little insecure.

98.

And that’s okay. It’s going to get better when you realize most people are too busy thinking about themselves and their own sex lives to really give a shit about yours.

99.

Sex is complicated, weird, awkward, and sometimes downright frustrating.

100.

But really, sex is a lot of fun.

101.

At the end of the day, if it feels good? Just do it. Just make sure you’re doing it safely. (And maybe with some lube.) TC mark

24 Things You Didn’t Know About Your New Favorite Netflix Binge ‘Stranger Things’

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 06:00 PM PDT

Stranger Things
Stranger Things

1. The creators of the series, The Duffer Brothers, were major fans of old school horror flicks and incorporated numerous 80s movie references throughout the series.

2. Some of the movies referenced include The Goonies, Close Encounters, Stand By Me, Jaws, It, Evil Dead, The Thing, Poltergeist, ET, Carrie, Star Wars, Alien, and Halloween.

3. 906 boys and 307 girls were auditioned for the lead roles.

4. Millie Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Noah Schnapp (Will) were ultimately selected as the bad ass lead characters and all of them are under the age of 13.

5. Millie Brown was really nervous about shaving her head and was encouraged to think of Charlize Theron in Mad Max to inspire the drastic change.

6. Her character noticeably didn’t have many lines; most of her phenomenal and creepy performance being entirely based on her facial features. For that, the Duffer Brothers asked her to model her performance after the character of E.T.

7. Millie and Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) are both from the UK.

8. Millie learned how to do an American accent by watching Disney Channel movies while she was growing up.

9. All of the young leads were asked to watch Stand By Me, The Goonies, and Poltergeist.

10. They did actually use 1200 pounds of Epsom salt to get Eleven to float in the pool.

11. Originally, Steve and Nancy were not supposed to end up together at the end of the season. Joe Keery, who played Steve, was reportedly so likable and charming on the set that the show runners changed his character arc so he could be included in more episodes.

12. A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Energy actually reviewed the series and while he denies that the DOE explores anything like a parallel universe, the DOE does fund a lot of research towards maintaining the Large Hadron Collider—which is the largest and most powerful energy device on Earth.

13. So while the DOE may not be delving into alternate dimensions, they do fund a significant portion of space explorations.

14. Gaten Matarazzo's (Dustin) voice changed so dramatically during production that the post-production sound team was unable to use him for any of the additional dialogue after filming.

15. Gaten and his co-star Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) knew each other prior to filming. They both performed on Broadway—Gaten played Gavroche in Les Miserables and Caleb played Young Simba in The Lion King.

16. It was at Caleb’s request that his character Lucas wear a camouflage bandana in the show—which he wears in the final three episodes.

17. Winona Ryder wanted her hair to be modeled after Meryl Streep's in Silkwood.

18. Ryder also took a lot from performances from Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Max Dugan Returns, and Audrey Rose—all movies that feature a female character who struggles to tell the truth despite everyone else thinking she’s insane.

19. The monster was created with prosthetics, animatronics, and CGI.

20. The toddles on set (a set of twins shared the role of Mike's little sister, Holly) were so terrified of the monster that the staff had to tell them that the monster was just like the monsters in Monsters, Inc.

21. Hopper's trailer apparently cost the art department $1 to buy.

22. For the laboratory scenes when Eleven is in the immersion tank, Millie wore a Sea Trek helmet, which weighs 70lbs above water and 15lbs under water.

23. And to direct Millie while she was underwater, the directors communicated to her through a small radio in her ear.

24. The soundtrack is all 80s music—with significant emphasis on The Clash's “Should I Stay Or Should I Go.” TC mark

12 Things To Keep In Mind When You Start A ‘Friends With Benefits’ Relationship

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 05:30 PM PDT

Joel Sossa

Friends with benefits (FWB) relationships are seemingly popular, but they don’t always end in both parties favor. They can get messy, they can lead to tension and they can lead to heartbreak. But starting a FWB relationship with someone in your friend group is a whole different story. Before you hook up with someone you’ve previously built a friendship with make sure you keep a few things in mind. 

1. Make sure you start with ground rules.

Deciding you want to be FWB with a friend in your group can get messy, it could potentially ruin your friendship and ruin your whole friend group's relationship in general. That is obviously the last thing you want so make sure you both understand what you're after to avoid self destruction in the friend group and between yourselves.

2. Honesty is key.

You need to have open communication between each other. You need to make sure that you're on the same page, if one of you develop feelings you need to cut it off. If one of you starts seriously seeing someone else, cut it off. You need to make sure everything is out in the open between the two of you.

3. Don't tell your other friends about it.

The last thing you both want is gossip spreading like wildfire. It will only lead to them asking questions and potentially getting upset about it.

4. But don't be surprised if they find out.

Even if the two of you somehow actually keep it a secret from all your other friends, they aren't dumb. Your friend group will start noticing little differences in your behaviors in general and towards each other. They might even walk in on something so keep where and when you hook up in mind.

5. If and when they find out be honest with them about it.

You don't want to make tension in the group if people feel like you're hiding something from them, so just be honest at this point. Let them know what is truly going on and that you didn't tell them because you didn't want it to become a big deal because to you two it isn't.

6. Realistically, there is a decent chance one, if not both of you, will develop feelings.

You didn't start out as FWB you started out as friends, so you are already comfortable with each other. You know what makes them laugh, what irritates the shit out of them and what they like in a person because I'm sure you've heard them bitch about all the people who have come and gone in their life while you've been friends. There is nothing awkward between you, you’ve already proven you can get along, now you're just adding the one thing that was missing from your relationship. Sex. It could be a dangerous mix if you’re not looking for a relationship.

7. Make sure you're emotionally stable for a FWB relationship.

FWB is supposed to be purely hooking up with no emotional attachments, if you're serious about pursuing a FWB relationship with someone you already have a relationship with make sure that you're emotionally ready to handle that. FWB means there is no good morning texts and someone to bring you ice cream when you’re sad.

8. Make sure you're able to handle it if or when they start talking to others.

Being FWB with you means they are still out looking for someone who could potentially satisfy their needs in a romantic way, and you should do the same. Don't get too comfortable with them and don't close off other's because as you've agreed with your FWB you're just FWB.

9. Don't start trying to control them.

Don't start thinking of each other as in a relationship, unless that is what you're after. Don't tell the other person you're down for FWB when you've actually got hidden feelings for them. That will only end up hurting you in the end. Don't cling to them and try to control or influence their decisions, they should still be your friend more than anything and you should still treat them as so.

10. Remember how it could end.

Before you agree to being FWB remember that you are unsure of how your relationship will turn out with them and if you aren't willing to potentially risk the loss of them as a friend maybe FWB isn't the right relationship for the two of you to have.

11. Know what kind of person you are.

If you fall really easy and often let your emotions clog your judgement, maybe a FWB relationship with a friend isn’t the right relationship for you. Really think about what kind of person you to make sure you can handle a relationship like this, it isn’t for everyone and that’s okay.

12. Respect each other.

You obviously care about this person in some way so don’t do anything to intentionally hurt them and don’t agree to it from the start if you can’t handle it when it comes to an end. Ultimately, you just want to respect each other’s wishes and boundaries. After all they were your friend before anything else, you should already be looking out for their best interest. TC mark

9 Men Open Up About Their Most Painful Break Up (And How They Got Over It)

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 05:00 PM PDT

lookcatalog

1. “I was with my girlfriend for five years and was seriously thinking about getting a ring. To this day, she’s still the only person I’ve really been in love with. She broke up with me totally out of the blue with no explanation and it felt like someone ran me over with a truck. But I didn’t want to dwell, so I drank myself into a stupor most nights and had sex with whichever attractive woman would look my way. Not saying that got me over it, but it sure helped.” — David


2. “I was so miserable, I barely did anything. Like, anything. I don’t know why people think women are the only ones who grieve after a break up. I was a mess. I barely slept or ate. I guess with enough time, I got better but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t still miss her.” — Howie


3. “I fucked up and cheated. I still don’t know why I did it. It wasn’t worth it. And it ruined a really good relationship with a girl I cared about. I wouldn’t admit this to most people, but I actually started going to therapy after it all went down. It’s still a process but at least I’ve started taking ownership for my mistakes and trying to learn how to avoid making them in the future.” — Christian


4. “I loved her. She liked me, but didn’t love me back. I’m still not over it.” — Ben


5. “We were constantly off and on, but this final ‘off’ was a lot more final. When things were good with us, they were amazing. When they were bad, everything was horrible. My buddies were actually a big help. We didn’t have the long sort of talks girls probably do with their friends, but they were totally there for me. And it’s not like it was all going out and getting wasted. They’d just come over, buy a pizza, watch TV with me. Having people who can keep you distracted after a break up is really, really awesome.” — Ty


6. “I guess the most simple explanation is he fell in love with someone else. When you lose someone like that, not only is it incredibly painful because you’ve built a life together, but it also tests your self-esteem. I felt utterly worthless. I was a miserable, moody thing. But eventually I stopped throwing myself a pity party for one and put myself back out there. I met someone who loved me the way I deserved. I think your worst pain can sometimes lead to the most beautiful moments. I’m so very happy now.” — Sebastian


7. “To this day, I’m not really sure why we broke up. The most I could get her to say was that she wasn’t happy, but even that wasn’t super clear. She was the most amazing woman I’d ever been with – intelligent, career-driven, kind. Losing her fucked me up big time. It felt like if I couldn’t make her happy, was anything else worth it? In the past, I’d gone out partying or tried to just hook up with people right away. But this time I was just single for a while. But actually single. I didn’t date, not even casually. I just lone wolfed it for a bit. I’m not gonna say it wasn’t hard or lonely, but by dealing with my feelings on my own and not finding an emotional crutch, it was a more sustainable way to move on.” — Mo


8. “I found out she’d been cheating on me for three months. We tried to work through it, but I couldn’t regain trust. I was (what I felt was rightfully) jealous about everything. But when we broke up, it was heartbreaking. I did the typical dumb drunk shit and hooked up with a few girls. But that wasn’t really helping. I booked a flight back home (I live in California but my family is from Vermont) and spent a month there. Being with family, the people who love me even at my worst, was very helpful and gave me a new perspective. I can’t thank them enough for getting me through that time.” — Bo


9. “Honestly? I’m still waiting for the day I stop missing her.” — Keith TC mark

One Day You Will Meet Someone Who Will Make You Realize Why It Never Worked Out With Anyone Else

Posted: 18 Aug 2016 04:15 PM PDT

One day you will meet someone who will knock out the breath from you.
They will show up unexpected, and when you aren’t even looking. They will come into your life, like a fresh breath of air. And they aren’t going to leave.

One day, you will meet someone who won’t ask you to have sex with them on the second or third date. They will wait patiently until you are ready. They will respect your needs and your wants. They will look at you while you undress and will hold a steady gaze with you. And you will blush with the way they look at you.

Because for the first time, you are being adored.

One day, you will meet someone who will grab your hand in excitement whenever they are in your presence. Their face will light up as soon as they see you, because even though they saw you yesterday, it still felt like a long time for them. They will listen to you talk about your family and friends and past relationships. They will hold your hand tighter when you talk about the hardships of your past. They will notice the glimmer in your eyes, and will wrap you up in a hug that only can be described as one thing: love.

One day, you will meet someone who will tell you about their struggles and obstacles they have overcome. They will tell you their worries, and their fears. And you will hold their hand harder when their voice starts to shake. And you will wrap them up in a hug, that makes them feel understood. And that makes them want to hug you even harder.

One day, you will meet someone who makes you see the world in a new light.

It’s brighter. It’s more vibrant. It’s more beautiful. You will meet someone who will be better because you are in their life. You will meet someone who will make you better too.

One day you will meet someone who giggles when you dance and belt out Taylor Swift lyrics on a road trip. They will kiss you so sweetly, that it brings tears to your eyes. They will love you so deeply, that all your other relationships will seem unauthentic. All your other relationships won’t even seem real. Because, one day you will meet someone who is the real deal.

One day, you will meet someone who will make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.

Now, all the breakups and hurt makes sense. It all becomes clear. They never worked out, because you hadn’t met the one yet. They never worked out, because, the universe had better things in store for you.

All those other relationships never worked out because they weren’t this someone.

And this someone, won’t breakup with you. This certain someone. Is yours for life. This certain someone will be there to stay. TC mark
