The what, why, how, and when of opening up your relationship

If your best friend’s sister isn’t raving about it, then your sister’s best friend probably is. But is it something anybody can try once (and only some people will actually like and want to try again), like kombucha, or is it more of an identity thing that’s not really about “trying it” at all?

Happy flaccid Friday, everybody

We understand. Some days you get home from work and all you want to do is curl up in the fetal position on the bare floor while someone feeds you soft crumbs of white bread like you’re a baby bird. We’re here to tell you it’s totally normal and not a problem at all for adults to feel like they’d rather be baby birds!

But in the event that you DO want to, but you don’t seem to be in the mood at the right times (for example, if you’re only in the mood during meetings), we’ve got some tried-and-true ways to get your body and brain back in alignment.
