Why Being Single is Amazing -- And Possibly Gross
Don’t be ashamed, we all have secret “single behavior”: wearing the same socks around the house for a week, waiting until the last possible second to buy more TP, not reaching for a tissue when we discover a booger. Yeah, these things are gross -- but no one ever has to know, right? The Frisky lists all of the things we do in private as single ladies. (And for what single really looks like, check this out!)

Awkward Sex in Hollywood
If only we had special lighting, silk lingerie and the ability to orgasm within five seconds of penetration, maybe our sex lives would match what we see on the silver screen. Since our between-the-sheets action is a little less glamorous (right?), Em&Lo offers the top 10 most realistic sex scenes, so we don’t feel so bad about our awkward position changes. (PS: if you want to learn some sex tips from the movies, these are great.)
