Everyday I work harder at being mindful: enjoying the moment I am in instead of rushing ahead trying to get to what’s next. It’s not easy, but focusing on the task you’re doing, even if that task is simply walking the dog or sitting with your partner, helps to increase pleasure, enhance focus and productivity and make you happier overall. I mean, have you ever seen a miserable buddha? Probably not. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get hyper new-agey on you. Below are a handful of ways to be more mindful across several different aspects of life.

I’ve written about high-tech sex before, but since then, the world has come a long way in terms of sexing up our smartphones.

Generally I have a “no-phones-in-bed” rule but maybe I might reconsider for a few of these…

Glassy Sex.

This Google Glass wearable tech let’s you see yourself having sex “through your partner’s eyes.” This is 99 percent always a bad idea, even if you and your partner look like this:

 These guys should totally be on BoyfriendTwin (whose name should probably be DoppelGangBangers) 

3nder.

I don’t know how to pronounce this, but the purpose for this app (brought to you by the Tinder and Grinder folks) is to allow you to find people to have a threesome with without having to poach experimental-looking singles at a bar with your boyfriend in tow. Not that I’ve done that ever.

Dickorate.

This app has actually recently been removed but I still want to talk about it anyway because it’s redickulous. This dick-dressing app let men take pics of their junk, make them bigger (obvi) and then add weird accessories, like sunglasses and little dick sweaters. They can then send the pics to their lover, who will undoubtably use them as blackmail later on. Here’s a true story: Nobody wants your dick pic. Ever. Also it reminds me of this hilarious video which will get suck in your head for days.

Sock-it.

Okay as someone who once had twelve room-mates, I actually kind of like this one. If playing “Big Papa” on repeat for 43 minutes didn’t make things clear enough, this app lets you alert people when you’re having sex so they leave you the f*ck alone.

Do you use any helpful sex apps? Would you use 3nder? Are you a little bummed Dickorate is no longer a thing?

Ah, summer is finally here. The season of barbecues, beach days, and humidity-related skin issues. My skin always gets a bit wonky in the more humid months; sweat makes me more acne-prone, and although I try to hide my face from the sun like a vampire, the rays sometimes do find my face, which dries me out.

In college I once made a slideshow of terrifying STDs and made all 6 of my housemates sit down and watch it. This was sparked by the realization that one of my roomies, who had been on oral contraception for 4 years, had no idea that birth control pills don’t protect against STDs.

Even in a culture where we can find anything with the click of a Google search button, we often still remain wildly under-informed. And then there are the times we think we know our shit, and something comes up that rocks us sideways. This is what happened to me with the recent news that the “pull out” method is apparently only one percent less reliable than condoms. Say what?

I’ve written several times about my battle with hormonal acne, which began 4 years ago when  I went off the pill. Mostly I try and manage it with diet, which helps a great deal. However, when I do have a breakout, I turn to topicals to help kick acne ass. Recently I have been loving this line from ZenMed, a vegan skin care company that is pretty amazing. Below are my top picks:

Happy Friday! For me, Friday night is often date night. While going out to eat is fun, cooking together and eating at home is much more intimate. Cooking for someone else is also a great way to show your appreciation for your partner—and we all want to do that, don’t we?
