Links We Love: The Detachable Penis, Super Bowl Sex Tips & More

Our weekly roundup of the wackiest -- and most thought-provoking -- love and sex articles on the web.

It’s Super Bowl time, and even if you couldn't care less whether the Giants beat the Patriots (or vice versa), these great love and sex reads will keep you entertained when the commercials aren’t on and Madonna's not singing.

Why You Should Cheer For Your Guy’s Team
Irritated by your man’s ability to recall everything about the Giants -- and nothing about your important stats (favorite flower, preferred diamond shape, etc.)? This Sunday, let the frustration go. According to a recent survey, over a third of women report they have hotter sex with their beau if his team wins. Touchdown! SheKnows dishes. (And in case you need a reason to actually watch the game, check out the hot players we can’t stop looking at.)

Birth Control…For Dudes?
Preliminary research published in Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology hints to the possibility of male birth control sometime soon. It’s not a pill or patch, though -- it's a zap! That’s right, guys would inject their testicles every two days to prevent pregnancy. Hmm, we don’t hate it, but we’re pretty confident dudes don’t want anything ‘zapped’ south of their belly button. BBC reports.

A Detachable Penis?
What if when your guy was going away for vacay or a business trip, but could leave his penis behind for your pleasure? (Or to make sure he doesn’t use it with anyone else?) One species does. A recent study discovered the orb-web spider can leave its penis behind to finish up sex deed without him. The Frisky gives five reasons why this actually isn't such a bad idea.

What Clueless Can Teach Us About Love
Yeah, we’ll admit it -- it was a little odd when Cher ended up with her stepbrother at the end of Clueless, but it’s still a classic circa-90s chick flick. From how to love the skin you’re in to how to know if it’s you or him, The Gloss shows what we can learn from this Beverly Hills trio.

Why You Shouldn’t Text That Jerk
He’s been really busy at work. He thought you would reach out to him. He’s just going through a really hard time right now. Seriously, ladies? Don’t be fooled by dudes unworthy of your efforts or time. ThoughtCatalog explains why you shouldn’t text that tool who didn’t keep his word. Trust us, a guy who really digs you won’t let a day pass without letting you know. (And if you need a dose of reality, check out HowAboutWe’s S*** Guys Say to Girls -- when they’re not interested.)
