As we enter our 20s, we can’t help but think, so when exactly am I going to meet Mr. Right? When will we meet him? Will we ever met him?  Well, finding Mr. Right takes a little effort on our part. As much as we would love for him to be standing at our front door, tall, dark, and handsome with flowers in hand, we have a little work to do. READ MORE

Hey! It’s OK… …if you can’t believe Homecoming and Halloween overlap this year…
…but still be up to the challenge of successfully combining two awesomely separate weekends into one. …if you’ve agreed to let your fifteen favorite alums crash at your house over the weekend.

They will bring their own food, toiletries, libations…right? …if this week’s coming visitors make you excited and terrified at the same time… …and if you end up having a dance floor make-out sesh with your old fling as if it’s freshman year again  READ MORE

Porn is Hijacking Our Sexuality: Two collegiettes’ approach to growing pornographic violence

By Elizabeth Bacharach, Olivia Malvisi
October 27, 2014 - 4:32pm

This is more than just a tantalizing strip tease whose slow, seductive motions easily excite its viewer.  This is more than just a resulting hard-on from flips through a glossy Playboy.  This is more than just even Deepthroat’s “lesson” on pleasuring men through a Linda Lovelace allure--and technique.  This is the porn industry in the United States and its relatively recent revolution due to the Internet.

In a recent interview with Rosie O’Donnell on “The View,” Lena Dunham dished on love, art, and her new novel Not That Kind of Girl.  In closing the discussion regarding her book’s dedication to both Nora Ephron and her boyfriend Jack Antonoff (lead guitarist for Fun), Dunham states, “It can be tough to share stuff that private, but I guess that’s what book dedications are for.”  In true journalist fashion, Rosie O’Donnell catches the bait and continues on the topic, one that has garnered a handful of criticism that surrounds Dunham: “A lot of people have accused you, as they've accused me, of the TMI.  That...we share too much; that we are...
