Here's the Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Doer.  Maybe I'll read it.  Later.  (Dumb Little Man)

I really don't think that wearing socks to bed will deter you from having sex if you actually want to have sex, but I'm obviously no expert, so here are 8 Things That Could Backfire In The Bedroom...from some experts, hopefully.  (Glamour)

Sigh.  Romantic escapes.  I can't be stopped, people.  (LadyLux)
