Aside from an outburst from a tipsy tio or your papa refusing to give you away, a bride’s worst nightmare is getting stood up at the altar. How does a chica cope with such a disastrous moment in her life? She gives back.
I was 26 years old when I had my heart broken for the first time. I was in love with Elijah, but he was in love with another woman. I will spare you the details of the heart-wrenching, but let's just say I was struck with grief. I let my mami comfort me, and she said one thing that resonated with me: "Mejor sola que mal acompañada." In English: It’s better to be alone than with bad company. She’s right, and I promised myself I wouldn’t settle.
Did you know that in order for a woman to orgasm her clitoris must almost always be stimulated? I’m not kidding! Physiologically, few women can reach orgasm through penetration alone; a 2009 study even stated that only 25 percent of women consistently orgasm solely through vaginal intercourse. All signs point to “play with my clitoris, por favor,” yet women feel like it’s their fault when they don’t orgasm the good ol' fashion way.
I first heard the term “cuffing season” while chatting with a millennial Latina. “It’s time to find a cuffing partner,” she said. I nodded, though I hadn’t a clue what she meant. I also didn’t ask. As a 37-year-old Latina love guru, I have a rep to uphold! So I did the next best thing: I went to urbandictionary.com to get the information.
According to the site, “cuffing season” occurs during the fall and winter months. At this time of the year, those who prefer to be single suddenly feel the desire to commit (or be ‘cuffed’).
The almost-always impossible love triangles and drama make telenovelas must-see television. If someone isn’t trying to kidnap la protagonista because she’s in love with the wrong man, it’s just not a worthy plot line. And when lost loves finally reunite, well, it’s magic. Their smooches make us tingle.
So, let’s celebrate those lovely besos! Below, remember the best kisses from telenovelas:
The first time I did the deed, the guy went straight for my vagina. He might have pecked me on the lips once or twice, and maybe he twisted my nipples to “turn me on." It happened so fast, that I only recall penis inside pepa.
But there are other body parts! As a matter of fact, women have many erogenous zones that need some TLC before their partner goes in for it. Here are just a few of the body parts that men and women should definitely not ignore during sex:
When Boo and I decide to "Netflix and Chill" on a Saturday night, we’re actually watching something on Netflix. Whether it’s the phenomenal Narcos or the murderous yet smoldering Sons of Anarchy, we’re super focused on plot lines, character development and the action that occurs in 60 minutes or less.
Sexting a pic of your vagina was once the only way to, well, show off your vagina. Until now, smartphone keypads didn't include vagina emojis. Well, chicas, I have some exciting news! Sex-positive company Flirtmoji is helping us get a little dirtier without taking off our ropa. They’ve created 200 adorable vagina emojis that you can save on your phone and text to your lover.
For many people — like me — ‘couples counseling’ was a curse word growing up. “We don’t lie on a sofa and talk about our feelings,” my dad would tell me. “It’s nobody’s problema."
That mentality couldn't be more wrong. Counseling can be an effective way to dissect one's innermost feelings and become more self-aware.
Is it time for you and your significant other to see a therapist? Here are some signs you need couples counseling:
I’ve always dated Latino men, particularly mixed Puerto Ricans. My current boyfriend is actually half-Puerto Rican and half-Vietnamese. For this cien por ciento Dominicana, that was quite a change! My siblings and many of my cousins are also down with the swirl, dating African-American men and women and even gringos and gringas. You’d think my family would get used to the diversity, but some still throw a judgmental side eye in our direction.
