The Difference Between Stoned Sex and Drunk Sex

Ona / Playboy

There are a few singers and artists who are so unique, so individual, so highly talented that they’re known by just one name. Beyoncé. Picasso. Madonna. Prince. Perhaps it’s time you add another name to that list: Ona. She’s both a singer and an artist. And as you’ll see on her Instagram or hear from her songs on Spotify, she’s a singular talent. So, let’s start your weekend off right: do yourself a solid and enjoy the undeniable sexiness of her one-woman, self-made photoshoot.

Stoned Sex vs. Drunk Sex

These days, more high school students smoke pot than cigarettes. That’s a new trend. And you know what that means, right? More and more college kids are having stoned sex. While drunk sex has long been a source of embarrassing stories, rom-com subplots and bad sitcom jokes, now that pot has become so popular, it’s time to ask: Which is better: stoned or drunk sex? In this study, researchers set out to answer that burning question. Among their conclusions was that a key difference between stoned sex and drunk sex is who you wake up next to. Or as one woman reported, “With weed I know who I’m waking up with. With drinking, you don’t know. Once you start drinking, everybody looks good.” So…if you’re looking to have sex with a stranger followed by the awkward morning moment when you wake up next to an unwelcome surprise…drunk sex is for you.

It’s Not Tinder, It’s You… Well, It’s Evolution

We have some bad news about Tinder: this study suggests that straight men and women have very opposite strategies to finding each other, which sucks for everyone involved. So, what’s the deal?

For his Hard Science column this week, Justin Lehmiller breaks down the data to tease out what matters. According to a new study on Tinder, straight men have a very low rate of matching with women, while women match with men at 10 times the men’s rate. However, once two users match, things switch. Men become more choosy, only sending a message to a woman they match with roughly seven percent of the time, while women message their matches 21 percent of the time. To explain this mismatch in strategies, we turn to evolution for answers.

Don’t Out Olympians at the Olympic Games (or Ever)

The Olympics are in full swing. As it always is, so far it’s been an incredible spectacle, filled with jaw-dropping feats of human achievement. But this week there was one guy who really dropped jaws. Only it wasn’t for anything good. Writing for the Daily Beast, journalist Nico Hines thought he had a clever idea: make a profile on Grindr and see how many Olympians want to get down for some hot gay sex. Or something like that. Why is a straight reporter writing about the gay hookups of Olympians, anyway? Who tf knows.

When Hines described his Olympic matches from Grindr in his article, he revealed sensitive details–ones that could easily identify the gay athletes. After their moments of glory during the games in Brazil, these same gay Olympians will return home. For some of the athletes mentioned in Hines’s story, folks back home finding out in the “news” that they’re secretly gay could be life-threatening. Around the world, people still get killed just for being gay.

Don’t out people. Simple as that.

The Daily Beast removed the article after a storm of Twitter users rightly criticized the piece and the Daily Beast for publishing it.

You’re In A Relationship…Should You Still be Posting Sexy Selfies?

Unafraid to post her nude selfies online, our sex columnist Bridget Phetasy is certainly brave af. But sometimes, the choice to be sexy online isn’t just a matter of doing what you want; sometimes your sexy selfies affect someone important to you, like your partner. This week for Just The Tips Bridget asks and answers the questions: How does one ask their partner to stop sharing sexy selfies online? Is that a reasonable request? Or is that a stifling act of repression to satisfy the fears of someone else? Those aren’t easy questions to answer. As with most things, it’s always personal.
