Kristen Chase


Hi. I'm Kristen. Not Krissy. Or Kris. There's a difference. After having kids, I left life as a college music professor and became a writer, sex book author, and host of the CafeMom Studios' show Coffee Shop Confessions. 

When I'm not chasing after my four children, I can be found at Cool Mom Picks and Cool Mom Tech, where I'm co-publisher and CEO.  

Sipping on:

Anything with tequila. Or just tequila.

    Can we all just agree that men are big babies? And I'm not just talking about how they act when they're sick -- the "man cold," if you will. I'm talking about how they act in the bedroom when we have our periods.

    I can't tell you how many times I've had guys ask me to do some crazy, weird stuff between the sheets, only to have them freak out when they find out my monthly "friend" is paying a visit.

    Look, I get that some women don't feel comfortable having sex when they have their period. That feels different somehow. But if you're okay with it, shouldn't your partner be too?

    Here's why men really need to man up when it comes to period sex.

    As much as I love how the Internet has made it easier to find information, it's got a pretty heavy-duty downside, especially when you're dealing with a mysterious illness or, in my case, a blemish.

    I admit that I'm one to Google health symptoms or ask my social media followers medical questions, only to discover that I've got either rheumatoid arthritis or a head cold.

    But after what happened recently on my Facebook page, I will never ever EVER ask the Internet for health advice again.

    I have had a number of various haircuts in my life, and even though I have pretty good hair (it's thick and wavy and generally easy to style), I tend to be like most people in that once I leave the salon, it never looks like that ever again.

    Well, that is, unless I'm willing to buy lots of hair care products and spend way too much time blowing it dry. And even then, it still doesn't look like it did when I got up from that chair.

    That's all changed since I found the most awesome hairstylist who just so happens to charge $150 a cut. But let me tell you, it's worth every single penny.

    I admit that back in the day, I got quite a thrill out of one-night stands. There was something hot about meeting someone and hooking up with absolutely no strings attached.

    Well, maybe it's because I'm older now, and I'm a mom, or just more sexually experienced. But these days the idea of a one-night stand completely turns me off. Grosses me out, even.

    Lest you think I'm a prude or a fuddy duddy, allow me to explain why I like to keep my sexual activity within the confines of a relationship of some kind.

    I've dated a bunch of guys over the last year as a newly single mom and inevitably the conversation gets to sex. And as a sex columnist and writer, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to get insight into what men think is the biggest turn-off in the bedroom.

    Well. Let me just say that not only were the answers pretty much consistent across the board, the turn-off was something that I would never have thought would have made the list in a thousand years.

    But worst of all, a lot of women do it. Including you.
