I've always been curious about polyamorous relationships but unsure if I could actually pull one off. So, I was excited to learn that Andre Shakti, author of the "I Am Poly & So Can You!" column at IAmPoly.net, was teaching a class on polyamory through the online sex ed platform O.School. O.School, which launched in November, provides live-streamed classes for grownups who still have questions about sex.
The typical New Year's resolution might involve setting rules for yourself, but that's no fun . You know what is fun? Letting go of all those useless rules you've imposed on yourself—especially when it comes to love and sex. Throughout our lives, we're given some pretty impractical, hard-to-follow, and occasionally downright sexist dating advice. And honestly, a lot of it doesn't even work! When we forbid ourselves from doing things that feel right, we only end up feeling deprived.
You might be tempted to lick your lips as a quick fix—that's moisture, right?—but resist the urge. Your spit dries quickly, which can leave your lips drier than before. That can make chapped lips even worse. If your lips are prone to chapping, you need the right tools to deal with it. First, that means prep work.
I'm taking people's questions about what #sex is like for the opposite sex and then getting real people of each sex to answer them. Please fill this out if you're willing to volunteer a question. Thanks! https://t.co/jDigAsJ9wF
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
