Whether it’s their animal instincts kicking in, or something they thought looked fun in Adult Videos, men can do some pretty insensitive things during sex. Sometimes, they mean well and their attempt to spice things up was just misguided, sometimes they really do just view us as a booty call, but either way, these things make us feel like an interchangeable piece of meat.

From Black Voices


After 16 seasons of being on the air, ABC’s reality dating game show, “The Bachelor”has managed to fulfill a void for various eligible contestants. However to some fans disappointment, the show’s lack of diversity has raised a few questions as to why there has never been a non-white bachelor? Last year show creator, Mike Fleiss told Entertainment Weekly that he and his production team are always looking to cast for ethnic diversity, “it’s just that for whatever reason, they don’t come forward. I wish they would.”

Well look no further, Portland-based sportscaster Lamar Hurd is vying to become the show’s first African American hopeful. Initially the multifaceted commentator and entrepreneur was reluctant to apply for the show’s upcoming season, but thanks to his assistant, Tammy, Hurd has a different point of view.

More than Half of Singles Have Sex on the First Date

So much for getting to know someone first. Results of the same survey that found more single Americans are interested in love over marriage, also showed singles are quick to jump into bed on the first night.

In all, 55 percent of singles reported having sex on a first date—66 percent of men and 44 percent of women. Sex therapist Laura Berman thinks the increase in online dating—21 percent of the respondents met the last person they dated online—and flirting on social media sites has a lot to do with this stat. She says all of the e-interaction makes people feel like they already know someone by the time they get to the actual first date so it’s not the same as a one-night stand or first-date hookup.

“It’s almost as if by the time they’ve had the first physical date, it might have been the equivalent of three dates,” she says. “I think this online sharing has definitely escalated some of this familiarity and quickness in which people get into sexual scenarios.”

Nearly a quarter of respondents said they typically have sex after one, two or three dates; 25 percent said “when the other person is ready,” and 19 percent said “when we agree to an exclusive relationship.” Another 13 percent said “when we are married.”

Overall, 58 percent of singles have had a one-night stand—65 percent of men and 51 percent of women—so giving it up early is definitely becoming a lot less taboo.

Are you down for sex on the first date or do you usually make him wait?

Usher Admits He Hooked Up with Rihanna

So apparently Usher has a “hit list” of women he’d like to snuggle up to this winter and Rihanna’s not on it, but she used to be. Now magazine recently asked the singer about rumors that the two were getting close over the summer and here’s what he said:

“She’s beautiful, but she’s not necessarily on my hit list — she’s like my sister right now.

“Or cousin — we have kissed.”

Uh which is it? “not necessarily” and “right now” sound like Usher is still trying to find love or at least a little somethin’ somethin’ in a hopeless place. I don’t know why people like to throw out phrases like “she’s like a sister/brother” knowing their intentions are hardly sibling-like. But since Usher does have a list of ladies he’d like to get back to maybe Ri Ri is at the bottom.

He also told the mag, “I’m dating at the moment – not anyone in particular, but I have a few people I’m interested in.”

What do you think about Usher’s comment on his relationship with Rihanna? Could you see these two together?
