SEX ON THURSDAY | What a Girl Wants

No, I’m not talking about the 2003 Amanda Bynes romcom. That is a masterpiece, though. Women, especially twenty-something-year-olds, are complex creatures.

Everyone has something that makes them tick.

SEX ON THURSDAY | Reflecting on My Slut Era

I embraced my first foray into fun, meaningless sex head-on.
