Worst of 2010: TV… [FaN Boos]

Ernessa says: My big complaint of the year is that there were really too many bad TV shows to choose from in 2010. I seriously had a hard time narrowing down my choices. Note to TV Execs: Next year you’ve just got to do better. That said, I’m going to have to go with THE WALKING...

Best of 2010: TV! [FaN Cheers]

Ernessa says: Well, guys for the first time in the entire history of me being moi, I find myself ending the year with no favorite new show. None of last winter’s mid-season replacements, the summer series, or the new fall series are deserving of high praise in my opin. As every...

Best of 2010: The Songs! [FaN Cheers]

Ernessa says: SO many great songs this year. Standouts for me included ROLLING IN THE DEEP by Adele, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON by Wave Machines, DIFFICULT by Uffie, BURIAL by Miike Snow, and XXXO by MIA — which was a surprising “grow on me,” since I claimed to meh it back in August...

The Best of Times/The Worst of Times: 2010 [FaN Remembrances]

Ernessa Says: Least Favorite Moment(s) of the Year: I’m still trying to process our dog, Tulip’s unexpected death. Also, one of my heroes, my Aunt Almeda also passed. As for my favorite moment of the year, I’ve been thinking hard about this, and while I enjoyed every single...

Worst of 2010: The Movies… [FaN Boos]

Ernessa says: This was a hard one. Part of me wants to say SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD b/c the females were so poorly rendered in this film and I had such high expectations. But I think I’ll have to go with MEGAMIND, because it was such a boys club, and pretty much everything...

Best of 2010: The Movies! [FaN Cheers]

Ernessa says: I thought for a long time I would choose INCEPTION, because it’s truly a spectacular feat of writing and directing that audiences would come out of that movie saying, “It was so different and confusing” when in actuality we had been spoon-fed the plot and the...

Worst of 2010: The Books… [FaN Boos]

Ernessa says: The nice thing about being a published author is that it’s considered bad form to talk ish about other writers in a public forum. Because of this, if I found myself not enjoying a book during my 52 Books in 52 Weeks project, I put it down and went on to the next book on my...

Dear Dr. Miro, How do I know if I’ve had an orgasm? Sincerely, Juana Gnogh Dear JG, Ah, wondering whether you have experienced La Petit Mort, or the Little Death, as the French call it, eh? To those who have had the privilege of coming, either once, or on a regular basis, it sounds a bit like...

Ask Dr. Miro: Ding Dong Dilemma [What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class...

Dear Dr. Miro, I recently had an intimate encounter in which my partner’s penis was, well, odd.  I mean the size was fine, the curvature was a little more to one side (which is fine), but there seemed to be something… off about it.  Like, instead of a regular helmet shape, it was...

Dear Dr. Miro, I’ve always wanted to get off with someone (besides myself) in the library. How can I get my boyfriend to do this? I am totally up for returning the favor but he’s really shy. All those shelves of books with everyone being so serious and having to be quiet and studious and,...

Ask Dr. Miro: Thanksgiving Splosher [What You Didn’t Learn in Health C...

Dear Dr. Miro, My boyfriend keeps referring to something called “sploshing.” He says that with Thanksgiving coming we should take advantage of all the stuffing and cranberry sauces that are bound to be left over. What is sploshing, and should I be concerned? Respectfully, Very Nervous...

Ask Dr. Miro: No Freak(in’) Fantasies [What You Didn’t Learn In Health...

Dear Dr. Miro, I have no desire to have sex with anyone. I’m actually pretty happy with the way I am with no sexual urges or fantasies and feel like I have always been this way.  I get told by my friends, “This is impossible!” and “You must be in denial.” I have looked up stuff online and...

Ask Dr. Miro: Kiss ME! [What You Didn’t Learn in Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, My girlfriend won’t kiss me. Eight years ago, when we first started dating, we were all over each other and now all she wants is for me to go down on her with a dildo, sometimes. She just barely touches me and this is making me way upset and it’s also making me feel ugly....

Ask Dr. Miro: Genital Whats??? [What You Didn’t Learn in Health Class]...

Dear Dr. Miro, About 7 months ago, my ex-boyfriend told me I gave him genital warts. When I went to get tested, I was told that I did not have any warty craziness. Every time I hear anything mentioned about STDs, I get frightened. I have taken so many tests at clinics and they always come...

Ask Dr. Miro: Sexy Anything Role Play [What You Didn’t Learn In Health...

Dear Dr. Miro, I want to get into some role-playing with my girlfriend but don’t know how to start. Am I a creep for wanting to see her dressed like a schoolgirl or stewardess? I don’t want her to think I’m not into her out of costume because I am, but I just want a little something different...

Ask Dr. Miro: Hot For Women [What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, I am totally straight but for the past few months, I have been fantasizing about being with women. I mean, REALLY being with another woman.  ANY woman!  All women! I can’t stop thinking about what it would be like to have some hot chick completely ravish me and then ME making...

Ask Dr. Miro: The Sex Numbers Game [What You Didn’t Learn In Health Cl...

Dear Dr. Miro, My boyfriend has been hinting about wanting to know how many people I’ve slept with. Should I share my special number? I’ve had my share of sex partners and I’m worried that he may think I’m slutty. In fact, I don’t really even know how many folks I’ve had. Then, I...

Ask Dr. Miro: Vibrator vs Home Grown Penis [What You Didn’t Learn in H...

Dear Dr. Miro, If a woman uses a vibrator regularly, does it make it harder for a man to give her an orgasm? All I have is my penis. I am concerned that may not be enough for my new special lady friend. Sincerely, Richard “Ol’ Fashioned” Johnson Dear Dick, First off, I don’t mean to make...

Ask Dr. Miro: Dildo Guide to Prevent Cobwebs [What You Didn’t Learn In...

Hi Dr. Miro, I’m in my early 30′s and have hit a dry spell where sexual activity is concerned. It’s been over a year since I last had sex and one of my gay male friends keeps warning me that I am getting cobwebs on my kitty. Oh those sassy gay friends! Lately I have been...

Ask Dr. Miro: Sexy Time Bruiser [What You Didn’t Learn in Health Class...

Dear Dr. Miro, Sometimes after vigorous sex (involving mega g-spot stimulation) I experience painful urination the next day.  The first time it happened I thought I was getting a urinary tract infection and drank a bunch of cranberry juice but then it got better after a day or two.  Would...
