Links We Love: How to Always Have a Date, Real Life Sleeping Beauties and More!

From the one tip that will ensure you always have a date to one girl's hilarious letter to the universe, don't miss these fun love and sex links we love from around the web.

Good Things Come in Twos
As single gals, we are frequently subjected to some of the lamest pick up lines around (no, it didn’t hurt when I fell from heaven, thank you.) But the pick-up line, "Do you want to go see Carly Rae Jensen in concert with me?" We'll take that any day! Check out this solid gold piece of advice from HowAboutWe to make sure you always have a date.

Butt Wait a Minute…
It's true -- backdoor action isn't for everyone. But Vice's article on why you should never, ever try anal sex? That's a little harsh. Luckily, The Frisky swooped in with their always entertaining (yet educational) view on the how-to's, why's and after effects of bringing your booty into your sexy repertoire. For more info on anal sex, check out these tips on how to make it more pleasurable -- if you dare.

Modern Day Sleeping Beauties
The story is so romantic: a princess put to sleep by an evil sorceress is saved by a handsome prince who brings her back to life with a single kiss (no tongue included). For a few select ladies in Ukraine, this tale isn't pretend -- it's their reality! Read about the crazy art exhibt that makes participants "contractually obligated" to marry the man who wakes her up with his kiss (no, seriously) on The Nerve.

Blast from the Past
These days, being a single girl in her 20's is not only completely normal, sometimes it's preferred (gotta get those kicks in while we can, ladies!). But the 1960's were another story entirely…with the exception of one enlightening book, Sex and the Single Girl by the late Helen Gurley Brown. Check out what advice from the forward-thinking, "Mad Men era" cool chick still holds in the 21st century on Em & Lo.

A Love Letter (Kind of)
Here it is again, the eternal question, "How do I find the perfect man?" Going to lots of bars? Hanging out on Wall Street for happy hour? Online dating? Or you could do what this girl did on xoJane -- you could write a letter to the universe describing everything you're looking for in your dream guy. Read more about one girl's hilariously unconventional journey to love via the stars here!
