Let's talk about sex. More specifically, let's talk about talking during sex. Many of us have probably at some point or another reached that critical moment in sex when something needs to happen differently.

Last Thursday, I was curling up on my couch with a nice glass of wine getting ready to start my Shonda Rhimes night with "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy" when it dawned on me that hey, I'm drinking a glass of red wine just like Olivia Pope–– she in an Armani suit with a 1991 bottle and me in sweatpants...

Moviegoers in Walla Walla hit the jackpot this weekend when several promising new movies were released. My choices were boiled down to porn versus drinking buddies, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new comedy about porn addiction, "Don Jon," won. That's right, an R-rated kind of pornographic dramatic comedy entertained! "Don Jon" follows the day-to-...

I would even go so far as to argue that Bang With Friends is the most innovative sexual outlet since the Internet itself. The genius behind Bang With Friends lies in its form.

(Content warning: This column discusses rape, rape culture and sexual assault.) Several weeks ago, Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond, the boys from Steubenville, Ohio who raped an unconscious girl, were both found guilty and sentenced.

I'm gonna be blunt: We've got to stop virgin-shaming. There's an unfortunate trend in our society to scorn virgins. If word gets out that you made it to voting age without ever touching another person's genitals, you're practically guaranteed a certain amount of derision. "Virgin" is tossed around like a slur, as if there'...
