The Top Mistakes Women Make When It Comes To Their Sexual Health | Betches

Hello, female brethren. Is there a female word for brethren? Okay, I Googled it, and it’s sistren, which is super weird because I have never heard this word in my life, and even spell-check is telling me it’s wrong, but IT IS NOT. Also, spell-check does not flag brethren, so yeah, that means study performed by Zava, a leading online doctor that operates in the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, revealed what women are getting wrong about sexual health, and even though the survey did not poll American women, the findings are nonetheless kind of scary. But before we get into the scary sh*t, some good news: Zava found that millennials are the most in control of their sexual …

I Went To A Sex Camp And It Wasn’t At All What I Expected | Betches

generalized anxiety for her entire life, getting dropped off and being stuck in a muddy, bug-infested campground to “socialize” with tons of annoying, snotty kids I couldn’t care less about for six hours, five days a week was NOT my version of a perfect summer. All I wanted to do was choreograph terrible dance routines to N*SYNC and Spice Girls songs and host 25-cent lemonade stands with my two favorite neighbors back in the comfort of my home. So yeah, camping was never my thing. But when a First off, the type of sex camp I went to was NOT an orgy in the woods, contrary to what every f*ckboy believed who slid into my Instagram DMs with unfunny jokes. …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: When Even Supermodels Aren’t Thin Enough | Betches

You guys know Kendall Jenner, right? I mean, of course you do. She’s super famous, has been her entire life, and is one of the highest-paid supermodels in the world. Her face is everywhere.

I Finally Understand Why People Care About Caroline Calloway | Betches

Last week, I wrote an opinion piece, updated an article in real time, and read countless Instagram posts from Caroline Calloway, the influencer who, in 2019, became known for her series of failed seminars. I kept getting asked the same question by my friends, family, and coworkers. The question was not whose side I was on. It was not if I think Caroline took advantage of Natalie. The question was this: why do people even care about Caroline Calloway? And, truthfully, I couldn’t really answer. It wasn’t her pictures—even though Instagram is a photograph-driven platform, Caroline’s posts look like anything you would see on a Facebook album from 2014. They are not perfectly composed, they barely appear filtered, and there …

What Would ‘Friends’ Be Like In 2019? | Betches

It’s the 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite 90s sitcom featuring over-plucked eyebrows, ultra straight hair, and a Greenwich Village apartment we would all gladly sacrifice our most prized possessions to live in for just a few weeks. Friends has remained an iconic series since its premiere in 1994, and its 2004 final season that famously won the cast a shudder-inducing one million dollars per episode.  However, it’s 2019 now. Even the most loyal of Friends fans sometimes use the 10 seasons as nostalgic background noise to fall asleep to after we’ve watched too many true crime shows and need the soothing trance of rhythmic studio audience laughter. When we’re sick of rewatching The Office, Friends and all its mind-numbing Ross …

I Donated My Eggs Twice: Heres What You Need to Know | Betches

There’s not much I won’t consider doing for money. As a kid, I worked a lemonade stand, sold snacks at yard sales, and scammed grown-ups with bets like $20 for throwing an inflated football through a tire. I’ve had an array of jobs since I was 16 and almost never just one at a time. I was even offered $200 in high school to take a guy’s virginity. I didn’t, but does that matter?  Just the lengthy application alone can weed out the weary. Then you have to get over the fear of stabbing yourself with needles, followed by the realization that you might release children into the world. It’s enough to make anyone think twice. A study published in …

Just Stop And Think: Weekend Horoscopes Aug. 9-11 Betches

Is it f*cking fall yet? No, but I say we defy the planets, stars, and seasons and all just start wearing long sleeves and leggings.

Getting Away With Murder: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Recap Betches

Before we dive into this, the penultimate episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, I want to present you all with a theory I’ve been working on. I think much like how every friend group has a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte, they also have a wife, a handmaid, an aunt, and a Martha. The wife is the rich friend who always looks chic and knows the best bars/clubs/island getaways. The downside to hanging out with her is she can be kind of a bitch sometimes and is always in a long-term relationship with the douchiest bro you’ve ever met in your life, who she insists on bringing to everything. The handmaid is your most fun friend with a f*ck it attitude who …

The Best Bachelorette Recap Youll Ever Read: Men Are Still Trash Betches

Sponsored by SkinnyPop Welcome to night two of my personal hell The Bachelorette season finale! Last night, Hannah’s final two men, Tyler and a guy who really should have just gone on The Voice, met her parents and had their last one-on-one dates before proposal day. I think the high points for me was watching Tyler restore health and vitality to Hannah’s mother with one flash of his dimples, and then, in contrast, watching Hannah become physically ill at the thought of her forever with Jed. The low point was having to listen to Jed defend his dog food jingle as a strategic career move that all the “real artists” have to do at least once before making it big. …
