    When it comes to (cough, cough) intimate lubrication, I think we all want to be careful about whatever we're using. After all, this is a substance we're using with our most delicate parts. Of course, most of us create our own natural lubrication -- more or less. But sometimes it falls in the "less" category and you need some reinforcement. There's plenty of slick substances out there. But what if you want to avoid petroleum-based products?

    No worries -- there's a growing number of more "natural" intimate lubrication options, whether that's water-based or homemade lubes. Nothing is as natural as what you produce, but these are the next best thing.

    If you're like most women, you're probably at least a bit curious about role-play in the bedroom -- acting out sexy scenarios with your spouse. Stacey Burton, CEO of, says that according to her research, 71 percent of wives describe their relationships as "traditional," but 82 percent say they're interested in getting "kinky" with their husbands. And almost all women say they'd like a sexual relationship that's "experimental and surprising."

    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.

    Four years ago, I wrote our first sexual bucket list post highlighting 50 things we should do sexually before we die. To say it went viral would be a major understatement. The list took on a life of its own, garnering more than 800 comments, hundreds of thousands of shares and views, and syndication galore.

    The truth is even I, the author of the piece, have not tried all 50. Has anyone really? It's an extensive list and not one that's easy to get through, especially if you've committed to marriage and monogamy early in life. So instead of saying we MUST do these things, let's say instead that we should be open to the possibilities. Is this a checklist that you have to complete in order to die happy? Probably not. But it's certainly fun to try!

    Look at it as a way for you and whomever your partner may be -- spouse, boyfriend, stranger -- to open your minds and expand your repertoire. We give you the ultimate sexual bucket list of 75 sex acts to try before you die ...

    Lying to your lover is pretty much the death knell of any relationship. Once you take honesty out of the equation, you are pretty much living on borrowed time. But lying is exactly what Daily Mail sex expert Tracy Cox says you SHOULD be doing when it comes to your "sex number" -- meaning the number of sex partners you've had in your life.

    Women should never, ever tell their man how many people they've been with, according to Cox, since his definition of "promiscuity" is "sleeping with men other than him." But she says if pressed, a woman should always say she's been with 10 people. Period.

    And yet, is that true? Is lying by omission REALLY the healthiest way to tackle this dicey subject?

    As one of the stars of the upcoming MTV Show Virgin Territory Dominique is about to reveal to the world her sexual status...  or lack thereof. At the age of 22, Dominique is a virgin, which is something that, in her world, is highly unusual.

    "I’m the last of my friends," Dominique told The Stir with a mischievous laugh. Her sexual status is SO unusual, in fact, that her own sisters, who are 25 and 27, didn't even believe she was telling the truth about it until recently. "They thought I was lying. I have such an open, bubbly personality. They just couldn't believe I was waiting."

    Remember that video of strangers (ahem, actors and models) sharing their first kiss? Well the follow-up is even hotter. This time filmmaker Tatia Pllieva asked strangers to undress each other and jump into bed. "Nothing else. No rules." Except that apparently there was an unwritten rule that everyone stops at their underwear. But that's all right! It's still flirty fun. "Undress Me" was made to promote season 2 of Showtime's series, Masters of Sex, about the pioneering sex researchers Virginia Johnson and William Masters.

    Once again Pllieva hired a crew of mostly gorgeous young people who look quite nice in their skivvies. And you know what? We actually picked up a few pointers from this video as well. If you've ever undressed a lover, you know it can be incredibly hot ... or incredibly awkward. So take one: Here are 9 important lessons about taking someone else's clothes off.
