Sex (or lack thereof), relationships (or their twisted, unhealthy counterparts) and anything having to do with love (or other suppressed, romantic feelings) are controversial topics – ones that collegiettes™ will never totally agree upon. And why bother trying? It’s like attempting to explain the benefits of Facebook or Twitter to your grandmother – pointless.
Nevertheless, we’ve always tried to break it down for you, whether you’ve agreed or not. We’ve demystified vibrators. We’ve helped you deal with betrayal. We’ve clued you in to how guys really feel about those tips you’re getting from Cosmo. And now we’ll delve into yet another of the all-too-common sticky, messy, hotly debated subjects in the realm of love: hooking up with more than one guy.

See? We told you. It’s sticky and messy, so let’s hotly debate it.

Plus, transformational dating and relationship coach Lisa Shield shares her insights on these tricky situations.
