I spend most days scouring the internet for delicious morsels that beg to be devoured. Some articles and news stories are meaty entrees that inspire rich, thought-provoking content while others are flavorful side dishes that have great mouth-feel but not hearty enough to stand alone. Instead of allowing these interesting anecdotes to disappear, I decided to savor them. These are my top 5 favorite tid-bits from the past week!
Dirty’s Week in Review
#5 Honey Lube & Penis Nibbles
Some of my most cringe-worthy moments growing-up were when an erotic sex scene splashed on the screen while sitting on the couch…next to my dad. I remember thinking, “Look straight. Avoid eye contact at all cost.” Thanks to the peeps at Cracked; they eliminated the cringe for future generations by highlighting the absurd.
#4 Millennials’ & Sex
Most assume the children of Gen X parents would be more liberal and sexually open-minded than generations previous. After all, this is the age Tinder and Hook-Ups. Their parents invented X-Games and Reality TV. We Gen X’ers are a wild, quirky, loud, and obnoxious bunch of caffeine fueled rebels. Of course our offspring were bound to be leveled-up versions of ourselves. Right? Not so fast. A new survey of over 2,000 18-35 year olds reveals that even though Millennial’s have more liberal attitudes about sex than their parents, they’re more uncomfortable than ever to talk about sexual issues with their partner and have even more conservative views on marriage! Detailed in a fabulous info-graphic, it shows that maybe, we just scared the shit out of them?
This article was probably my favorite of the week. An eloquently written message to Millennial’s addressing some their attitudes highlighted coincidentally in the survey from #4. I understand envisioning Ma & Pa Kettle getting’ it on may not get your juices flowing; however, God bless them for keeping the spark alive! Look, I plan on living a very long time and major part of my longevity plan, besides copious amounts of red wine, is a regular diet of sex.
#2 Marry Me?
Recent data shows less people are getting married and those who decide to take the plunge are waiting longer than ever. This isn’t a death of marriage; it’s a consequence of shifting of priorities. Men and women simply desire a more perfect union. In this article, men share the qualities they seek in the perfect mate. Not perfect, as in Stepford Wife, but what makes a woman wife material for them.
The best of the net isn’t always perfectly crafted articles from noteworthy writers but free-flowing communication from everyday users of the net. All too often I get questions from followers for advice on how to make sex better. This post from Reddit is not only hilarious but a beautiful example of how laughter, communication, and an open-mind can lead to a lifetime of better sex!
