Esta pareja tomó sus fotos de boda en Costco y en realidad son súper lindas

El verdadero amor existe, y aparentemente puedes encontrarlo en Costco.

Al hacer un viaje a Costco, probablemente sepa que es aconsejable hacer un plan de ataque (de lo contrario, irá a comprar algunos alimentos y terminará comprando un kayak). Pero es seguro decir que Jessica y Brandon, dos extraños al azar de Waipahu, Hawaii, no estaban preparados para lo que encontrarían en su viaje a Costco esta vez.

Jessica estaba de pie con su compañera de cuarto debatiendo una compra de macarrones con queso (porque ¿qué es un viaje a Costco sin cuestionar todo lo que compras?) En su historia de Instagram. Se estaba filmando a sí misma diciendo en voz alta cómo le gustaría que los macarrones con queso fueran saludables. Brandon la escuchó y disparó.

Manténgase al día sobre lo que significa saludable ahora.

¿Te encanta Costco? Echa un vistazo a estas historias a continuación:

De acuerdo a DeliciosoBrandon dijo: "Es bueno para ti. Es queso y es Costco ". Si bien no podemos estar del todo de acuerdo con la lógica nutricional de Brandon, tenemos que darle puntos por su línea creativa.

Tres meses después, la pareja tuvo su primera cita y, como dicen, el resto es historia. Ahora están casados ​​y, como si esa * cursi * historia de amor no fuera lo suficientemente mágica, se pone mejor. La pareja se tomó fotos de la boda en Costco un mes después de casarse. Sí, lo escuchaste bien. Fotos de BODAS.

"Realmente no pensamos que lo íbamos a hacer, y lo hicimos", dijo la pareja. Delicioso.

La fotógrafa de la pareja, Lisa Rankin, dijo: "En realidad, era una broma que teníamos los tres desde que hice su primera sesión en 2018. Les pregunté si estarían interesados ​​en hacer una sesión para mí, solo para ser creativos. Al conocer más su historia y descubrir que se conocieron en Costco, dije: 'Si alguna vez te casas, rodaremos en el pasillo de los macarrones con queso' ".

Entonces, eso es exactamente lo que hizo la pareja. Rankin dijo: "El espíritu Aloha salió con toda su fuerza ese día. Todos los felicitaban por celebrar un mes de felicidad conyugal (tomamos estas fotos un mes después del día de su boda real). Las niñas pequeñas miraban a Jess como si estuviera una princesa de la vida real, e incluso los trabajadores de Costco tenían sonrisas en sus rostros. Algunos trabajadores incluso detuvieron el tráfico para nosotros para que pudiéramos capturar con seguridad las tomas que corrían frente a la tienda. Todo trajo muchas sonrisas ".

Desde posar con su compañero (macarrones con queso) hasta alimentarse románticamente con una porción de pizza, esta sesión de fotos de bodas de Costco es la perfección. Y mientras Jessica y Brandon disfrutan de sus Sunday Fundays en Costco, yo me dirijo allí ahora mismo. Para macarrones con queso, por supuesto.


Durante Covid-19, a un novio se le ocurrió una solución brillante para su boda cancelada

Una boda sorpresa en una isla tropical sigue siendo un gran gesto romántico, incluso si se trata de un videojuego.

De Nintendo Animal Crossing: New Horizons ha ofrecido un escape brillante de la vida cotidiana mientras gran parte del mundo practica el distanciamiento social y las cuarentenas autoimpuestas por la pandemia de Covid-19. Pero para una pareja de la ciudad de Nueva York, el nuevo videojuego también proporcionó un escape literal del mundo mientras planeaban su boda. Es un poco extraño, pero Sharmin Asha y Nazmul Ahmed, ambos de 28 años, se casaron por dentro Cruces de animales.

Comenzaron a salir en abril de 2016 y se comprometieron en junio de 2016 en Costa Rica. Ahmed hizo la pregunta en un jardín de mariposas.

Planearon su boda para el 12 de abril de 2020 en un lugar de moda de Brooklyn con un "hermoso atrio". Se invitó a unos 100 amigos y familiares. La pareja tenía planes para una luna de miel justo después, justo antes de que comenzaran las rotaciones de residencia médica de Asha este verano. Los planes que tenían fueron borrados por el nuevo coronavirus.

Afortunadamente, todavía tenían Animal Crossing: New Horizons, que fue lanzado por Nintendo para el sistema de juegos portátil Switch el 20 de marzo.

Cruce de animales es el juego del momento - El juego más nuevo de Nintendo ofrece a los jugadores una atractiva vía de escape del mundo real. Mediante Nuevos horizontes, pueden conectarse con amigos en línea (el juego está superando los éxitos recientes de Nintendo como Pokémon Espada y Escudo y Super Smash Bros.Ultimate, según este informe).

El juego también creó la apertura para celebrar sus nupcias, a pesar de que su boda en persona fue cancelada.

El 22 de marzo, Sharmin Asha, Nazmul Ahmed y cinco de sus amigos más cercanos se reunieron en línea para una boda virtual junto a la playa. “Quería que se pareciera a esas lindas bodas en la playa que ves al final de las comedias románticas”, dice Ahmed.

Asha compartió una captura de pantalla de lo que probablemente fue la primera Cruce de animales boda en la comunidad subreddit del juego con el título "Mi prometido y yo tuvimos que cancelar nuestra próxima boda debido al Covid-19, por lo que nuestros mejores amigos nos dieron una boda sorpresa de cruce de animales". Rápidamente subió a la cima del foro con más de 32,000 votos a favor.

"Mi prometido lo planeó con nuestros mejores amigos", escribe Asha en su publicación original de Reddit. "Me gradué de la escuela de medicina y no me graduaré y nuestra boda fue cancelada. Me sentía bastante deprimido por perderme mis hitos. Esto me hizo tan feliz que ni siquiera tengo las palabras para describir lo mucho que significó para mí ".

A medida que se propaga la pandemia de coronavirus, La ciudad de Nueva York se convirtió en “el epicentro de esta crisis [del coronavirus] en los Estados Unidos de América”, como dijo en marzo el alcalde de la ciudad de Nueva York, el alcalde Bill de Blasio. Las nupcias de Asha y Ahmed fueron canceladas por su lugar poco después de que el presidente Donald Trump emitiera una declaración que limitaba las reuniones sociales a no más de 10 personas.

Junto con 8,6 millones de neoyorquinos, se les ha dicho que se queden en casa y se aíslen por sí mismos en el futuro previsible. Nadie sabe exactamente cuánto durará esto, pero está claro que Asha comenzará su residencia justo cuando el coronavirus comience a disiparse a finales de este año. Incluso en el mejor de los casos, toda la industria de la salud de la ciudad quedará devastada y ella estará entre las personas que se unirán para restaurarla.

"Estamos muy emocionados de empezar, incluso durante todo esto, para poder empezar a ayudar", dice. Inverso. “Ofrecimos ayudar con la carga de pacientes en los hospitales, pero nuestra escuela pensó que era mejor cancelar las rotaciones por ahora”.

Como muchos estadounidenses, Ahmed perdió recientemente su trabajo debido a los despidos provocados por el coronavirus y la incertidumbre económica que siguió. “Desafortunadamente, me despidieron a principios de este mes debido a un pronóstico de mercado débil y mi proyecto fue cancelado inesperadamente”, dice.

Como tantas personas atrapadas en el interior con poco más que hacer, los recién casados ​​recurrieron a los videojuegos.

Ahmed es más un jugador que Asha, pero entre sus rotaciones en la escuela de medicina, habían jugado Pokémon Espada y Escudo y Valle stardew, un relajante juego independiente sobre agricultura. Recogiendo Cruce de animales fue una obviedad.

"Nosotros vimos Cruce de animales tenía una vibra similar a la de un simulador de vida agrícola / hogareña que podíamos jugar juntos ”, dice Ahmed. Pasaron ese primer fin de semana después del lanzamiento del juego acurrucados juntos jugando, yendo a pequeñas citas visitando las islas de los demás dentro del juego.

Entonces Ahmed tuvo una idea: Sorprendería a Asha con una boda en el juego. Y podría invitar a un puñado de sus amigos a su isla. Encontró una franja romántica de playa digital en la costa occidental de su isla. Sería el escenario perfecto.

"Quería mostrarle que aunque no podemos reunirnos físicamente como grupo, todavía tenemos un montón de amigos y familiares que nos aman y apoyan", dice. Inverso. "Pensé en hacer un evento a través de Cruce de animales podría ser una forma divertida de demostrarlo ".

Preparativos de Ahmed tomó varias horas e involucró la elaboración de un traje para su personaje que se parecía al real que había planeado usar en su boda. Al reunir materiales en el juego y elaborar con algunas recetas de bricolaje, también construyó un área de recepción donde los invitados podían sentarse, un corredor de alfombra bordado con las iniciales de la pareja y un altar que consistía en un columpio con una hoguera de fondo. La playa estaba llena de antorchas tiki, flores en macetas y otra decoración de buen gusto.

La ceremonia incluyó a cinco de sus amigos que se congregaron en Ahmed's Nuevos horizontes isla para sorprender a Asha.

“Mantenerlo en secreto fue la mitad de la diversión”, dice Ahmed. "Así que durante la mitad del día me preguntó qué estaba haciendo y yo seguí dándole respuestas muy vagas mientras la seguía".

En un momento en el que todos estamos estresados ​​y atrapados en el interior, compartiendo lo pintoresco y francamente lindo cosas que experimentamos en Cruce de animales proporciona un respiro del tedio y el estrés que conlleva vivir bajo una cuarentena autoimpuesta.

Nadie podría haber predicho eso Cruce de animales, un juego relajado en el que los jugadores son llevados a una isla desierta idílica para hacer amigos y explorar en general, se convertiría en un salvavidas emocional. Pero Cruce de animales es especialmente adecuado para brindar a los jugadores una distracción relajante.

“Esta experiencia es realmente frustrante para todos”, dice Asha. "Pero en momentos como este, realmente aprecio a mi prometido y mis amigos por brindarme tanta felicidad y apoyo".

En cuanto a una boda de la vida real, una fuera de las idílicas escenas de Cruce de animales? Eso es: abril de 2021. Pero siempre mirarán hacia atrás en su Cruce de animales boda con calidez: "Definitivamente vamos a mirar hacia atrás en el Cruce de animales boda con cariño. De hecho, planeamos reunir todas las piezas de los medios de comunicación para una presentación retrospectiva en nuestra nueva fecha de boda & quot.

La luna de miel, también cancelada, no se ve tan bien, admite Ahmed. "Yo estaba haciendo lento nuestros planes de luna de miel incluso antes de que Covid estallara. Así que no nos habíamos decidido por un plan en particular. Intentaremos hacer un pequeño viaje por carretera por la costa este cuando se aclare la cuarentena.

Fui a un resort romántico nudista para parejas con mi hermana

& ldquo¡Espera! ¡Ven rápido! ¡Hay una orgía en ese otro balcón! ”, Me gritó mi hermana, señalando a un grupo entusiasta de huéspedes del hotel debajo de nosotros. Al principio pensó que solo una mujer estaba recibiendo sexo oral, pero luego de una inspección más profunda, vimos que en realidad había cuatro parejas en varias posiciones (¡y vigorosamente en eso!) En la menguante luz de la tarde.

¿Entramos? Por supuesto no. Nos sentamos en el balcón de nuestra suite y rsquos en Desire Resort, terminamos lo que quedaba de nuestras ensaladas César de pollo y observamos. "¿Puedes cambiar de asiento conmigo?", le pregunté. & ldquoTienes una mejor vista. Creo que todos se mudaron a las sillas de jardín. & Rdquo

¿Una orgía a media tarde? ¿Dónde se encuentra tal magia?

Deseo. El deseo es un lugar al que la gente va para desnudarse. Un paraíso nudista y rsquo. Un refugio de parejas desnudas. Me invitaron a llevar a mi novio a Desire Riviera Maya y Desire Pearl durante cinco días durante el Mes Swinger & rsquos. Cuando escribes sobre sexo para ganarte la vida, la gente quiere que viajes a centros turísticos nudistas, convenciones fetichistas y fiestas de cuero. Básicamente está en la descripción del trabajo. Probablemente debería agregarlo a mi LinkedIn.

¿El único problema? Después de que I & rsquod nos comprometimos con el viaje, mi novio y yo rompimos de una manera espantosa y fea. La solución clara no fue cancelar mi viaje, sino traer a mi hermana, Scarlett. ¿Quién no querría ir a un resort nudista en México con su hermana, amirite?

Mi hermana y yo somos muy unidos. Dos años más joven que yo, ella y yo hacemos todo juntos y nos contamos todo. Scarlett, curadora de museo en el área de Chicago, es un poco más conservadora que yo (el listón es muy bajo, tenlo en cuenta), pero siempre está dispuesta a vivir una aventura. Cuando le pregunté si quería ir conmigo a un resort nudista en México, inmediatamente me respondió: & ldquoYES! ME ENCANTARÍA! & Rdquo junto con la información de su pasaporte. Ambos estábamos listos para soltarnos y pasar un buen rato.

Llegamos a Desire Riviera Maya cerca de Cancún, y el conserje y el gerente del hotel nos recibieron con champán. Tomamos nuestras bebidas, mientras explicaban el resumen de las reglas y eventos del hotel, luego nuestro mayordomo personal nos acompañó a nuestra habitación (sí, personal mayordomo). Era de lujo, con un jacuzzi personal gigante, una ducha amplia con efecto de lluvia tropical y pisos de mármol inmaculados. Había pinturas súper agresivas del Kama Sutra (como, legítimo, un pene entrando en la vagina de una mujer en forma de pretzel), pero no me importaba mucho. Me desnudé de inmediato. Me encanta estar desnudo. Después de unos días en Desire, no quiero volver a nadar en traje de baño nunca más.

En realidad, había cuatro parejas que se enfrentaban en varias posiciones y, además, ¡trabajaban vigorosamente!

Scarlett parece cómoda con la desnudez en casa, pero no estaba seguro de cómo estaría en el resort. Pero ella estaba en el Equipo Desnudo tan pronto como las burbujas golpearon su torrente sanguíneo, saliendo corriendo por las puertas corredizas de vidrio en la piel.

A nadie en Desire le incomodaba todo el asunto del desnudo. Podrías estar tan desnudo o no tan desnudo como quisieras estar. Deambulamos por las playas y las piscinas en pareos, y luego nos los quitamos cuando llegábamos a nuestra zona de asientos. La mayoría de la gente deambulaba completamente desnuda. Nos sentamos desnudos en nuestra cabaña personal junto a la playa, nadamos desnudos en el océano, y luego, aparecimos desnudos en nuestro jacuzzi personal. (No soy raro por tomar un jacuzzi desnudo en la suite de mi hotel con mi hermana. Tú y rsquore raro).

Hay mucho que hacer en este complejo (y su complejo hermano, Pearl, más sobre eso a continuación). Hay fiestas temáticas nocturnas, un salón con jacuzzi gigante donde la gente tiene mucho sexo (nota: NO entré allí porque eso es foliculitis esperando suceder), varios restaurantes y una piscina fabulosa. La comida es ridícula. Hay restaurantes increíbles en ambos resorts, la cocina varía desde italiana hasta mariscos. Tuvimos uno de los platos de mezcla de bruschetta más increíbles de nuestras vidas en este viaje, junto con langosta como plato principal.

Bebimos aproximadamente 76 copas de champán ese día, luego fuimos a una espléndida cena de bistec y chocolate. Puedes comer toda la comida que quieras. It & rsquos todo incluido. Sin embargo, sí tiene que usar ropa cuando coma en los restaurantes. Después de la cena, volvimos a nuestra habitación de hotel, borrachos como locos en las vacaciones de primavera, y rápidamente nos desmayamos a las 10 de la noche.

Cuando finalmente llegamos a socializar con los invitados, parecía que la pregunta inicial de todos era: "¿Son ustedes dos gemelos?". Rara vez preguntaba si Scarlett era mi gemela. Es evidente que somos hermanas, pero no gemelas. Yo & rsquom un sólido tres pulgadas más bajo que ella, con un tipo de cuerpo diferente. Pero nos dimos cuenta de por qué todos querían saberlo y mdashit era porque éramos una fantasía. Así es la vida.

La segunda noche decidimos tener una comida de tres platos junto al mar y mdashone de los muchos complementos románticos y sensuales disponibles en Desire. Esta cena fue la única actividad en el & ldquoFantasy Menu & rdquo que estaría remotamente bien que las hermanas la hicieran juntas. (Una opción era hacer tu propia pornografía, en la que un camarógrafo real vendría y te filmaría teniendo sexo con tu pareja).

Después de nuestra romántica experiencia gastronómica, nos dirigimos al espectáculo en la plaza principal. Desire ofrece un espectáculo todas las noches y las invitadas parecen interesarse mucho en el tema, vistiéndose con disfraces sexys y ropa de malla. Sin embargo, el verdadero espectáculo no fue la talentosa bailarina de barra, ni las strippers vestidas con bikini de plumas, sino Lisa, una huésped del hotel muy borracha y exuberante. Lisa se ofreció como voluntaria para todo. Se metió en una bañera de utilería y bebió champán de su arranque. "Hola, candidiasis", dijo Scarlett, con total naturalidad, sobre su copa de vino.

Pero más impresionante incluso que Lisa, fue una pareja de setenta y tantos. Ambas portadoras de tarjetas miembros de la AARP, la mujer tenía los senos completamente fuera de una blusa que terminaba justo debajo de ellos. Su esposo aparentemente recatado vestía una riñonera, pantalones cortos tipo cargo y una camisa hawaiana. Fumó una pipa de Winston Churchill antes de acercarse rápidamente para hacer un trago de champán con el muslo de Lisa & rsquos.

Después del entretenimiento programado para la noche y rsquos, en la discoteca, conocimos a una pareja increíble, a quienes me referiré como Bernie y Sheila. Van a Desire y complejos turísticos similares con regularidad. Son lo que el gerente del hotel me diría más tarde que son, "ldquoLifestylers". Hablamos en la terraza de discotech durante al menos dos horas. Me obsequiaron con la historia de un gang bang en una visita anterior, durante la cual Sheila atendió a varios hombres mientras Bernie miraba. "Solo llevamos antibióticos y cremas para estar seguros", me dijo Bernie.

No aprendí nada en este viaje si no que los penes son tan únicos como los copos de nieve.

Con mucha resaca, Scarlett y yo pasamos el día siguiente nadando y tomando el sol. Estar en la piscina de Desire era como ser la manifestación humana de Saturno, rodeado por un anillo de dongs. Era un buffet de hombres desnudos, todos con penes de diferentes tamaños. No aprendí nada en este viaje si no que los penes son tan únicos como los copos de nieve. La joya de la corona de la escena de la piscina era un hombre bastante corpulento de unos sesenta años con un príncipe Alberto realmente asombroso (un piercing en el pene, para los no iniciados).

Después de dos noches en Desire Riviera, nos dirigimos a la segunda ubicación: Desire Pearl, a unos 20 minutos en taxi, en otra parte de la costa. Este hotel es más pequeño y mucho más romántico, dirigido a parejas nudistas que solo quieren estar desnudas consigo mismas, en lugar de fiestas sexuales y swingers (aunque eso es un componente).

Nos asignaron el ático (lo sé, así que bougie. Nos encantó). Teníamos una terraza que daba al océano, una bañera de mármol que se inventó básicamente para Instagram y nuestra propia piscina de agua caliente personal. La habitación tiene un promedio de $ 1300 / noche (los precios varían, dependiendo de la disponibilidad). No es exactamente la más humilde de las experiencias, pero ciertamente #bendecida. Me arriesgo aquí y asumo que la habitación con vista al mar que teníamos en Desire Riviera Maya es más realista, en cuanto al precio. Una habitación con vista al mar promedio (dependiendo de cuándo planee visitarla) cuesta alrededor de $ 470 por pareja por noche. Un poco arriba, pero este es un resort con todo incluido, toda la comida, las bebidas y la diversión son gratis.

Comenzamos nuestra estadía con un masaje en pareja de dos masajistas sexys. La música de fantasía erótica que venía de los altavoces gritaba: "Ésta es una situación con final feliz, Cielos, abróchate el cinturón". Me entró el pánico porque no quería que el aceite de eucalipto que estaba usando en mi espalda terminara en mi vulva. Pero estaba completamente equivocado. No hubo finales felices (aunque Scarlett me dijo más tarde que estaba teniendo exactamente los mismos pensamientos). El spa y mdashand el hotel en general y mdashis no es ese tipo de lugar.

Nuestra penúltima noche, sabíamos que teníamos que enfurecernos. Era & ldquoBrazilian Night & rdquo. El gerente del hotel dejó atuendos increíbles en nuestra habitación para que los usáramos y nos los lleváramos a casa: pantalones anchos a juego y blusas cortas con pedrería en colores complementarios. Decidimos jugar con el tema gemelo que nos había seguido a todas partes.

En la discoteca, conocimos a una pareja holandesa increíblemente interesante que había estado junta durante casi 25 años. Han estado en complejos turísticos como este once veces en el pasado. Borrachos pedimos pizza a nuestra habitación y los invitamos a subir. Nos relajamos desnudos en el jacuzzi y hablamos toda la noche sobre la vida, el swing y la no monogamia. Al día siguiente, el encantador holandés nos dijo que él y su pareja se habían ganado una gran reputación en la comunidad hotelera porque habían dejado el bar con & ldquoThe Twins & rdquo. Felizmente le dijimos que se sintiera libre de decir lo que quisieran sobre nosotros y nuestra noche en la suite.

Puede que te suene extraño, pero ir a un resort nudista con mi hermana es una de las mejores decisiones que he tomado. Fue la experiencia de unión que ni siquiera sabía que necesitábamos. Scarlett parece una versión renovada de sí misma, más cómoda en su propia piel. Me siento como una mujer completamente nueva con una nueva oportunidad de vida. Pasamos el mejor momento de nuestras vidas y repetimos la aventura casi todos los días. Estaremos deleitando a nuestra familia con historias de penes, polos de striptease y las orgías que se verán en los años venideros.


Michael B. Jordan y Brian Austin Green dan grandes pasos en nuevos romances, además de más noticias de amor de celebridades

Wonderwall. Oficial de Instagram el 10 de enero. La estrella de "Black Panther" compartió una presentación de diapositivas de fotos artísticas de él mismo posando con la modelo, mientras ella compartía una imagen de dos Polaroids con el actor, incluida una toma en la que parece inclinarse hacia besarla en la mejilla. Al día siguiente, "Entertainment Tonight" informó que la pareja ha sido amiga durante años, pero llevó su relación al siguiente nivel hace cuatro meses. Según la fuente, están "realmente interesados ​​el uno en el otro". Agregó la fuente: "Se divierten mucho juntos y Michael ha estado listo para una relación seria por un tiempo". El 13 de enero, Michael regresó a Instagram para desearle a Lori un feliz cumpleaños número 24, compartiendo una foto y un video de él y la belleza empacando en el PDA durante unas vacaciones recientes. La pareja luego reveló los nombres de sus mascotas: "¡Feliz cumpleaños, Tortuga!" escribió el actor en el Instagram de Lori. "Gracias, Nugget", respondió ella. También usó su historia de Instagram para compartir videos de su novio celebrando su cumpleaños con su familia, incluida su madre y su padrastro Steve Harvey, y para mostrar uno de sus regalos de cumpleaños de la estrella de "Creed": al menos 15 grandes ramos de rosas blancas. Ahora sigue leyendo para conocer las actualizaciones más importantes de la vida amorosa de celebridades de la semana ...

Durante una entrevista con "Access" que apareció en línea el 9 de enero, Brian Austin Green habló sobre su nuevo y candente romance con Sharna Burgess. "Todo va muy bien en este momento. Es temprano, así que no tenemos etiquetas para nada, obviamente, pero realmente estamos disfrutando de la compañía del otro", dijo. "Es una mujer increíble. Es súper responsable. Es súper dulce y cariñosa, apasionada, divertida, así que me siento bendecida en este momento". Continuó diciendo que primero se conectaron a través de su gerente de negocios mutuo, quien sugirió que se reunieran. Aunque el ex galán adolescente no estaba del todo convencido de que le tendieran una trampa, "salió de mala gana" con el profesional de "Dancing With the Stars". "Nos conocimos y tuvimos una gran conversación, así que ha sido genial hasta ahora", dijo. Dos días después, Sharna hizo oficial su relación en Instagram, subtitulando una foto de ella besando al ex alumno de "Beverly Hills, 90210", "HIM".

Esto se está poniendo complicado ... El 8 de enero, la revista People informó que, según una fuente, Jason Sudeikis está "absolutamente desconsolado" por su separación en 2020 de Olivia Wilde. "Todavía hay mucho amor allí, y le gustaría tener la esperanza de que tal vez haya una manera de reparar las cosas. Pero lo que sucederá a continuación está por verse". En medio de preguntas sobre la línea de tiempo de su ruptura y su nuevo romance con Harry Styles, una segunda fuente de People se duplicó en informes anteriores de que "Olivia y Jason se separaron a principios de 2020". Afirmó el segundo informante: "La noticia reciente de que ella ha seguido adelante no es una sorpresa. La relación de Olivia y Jason sigue centrada en sus hijos y en la crianza conjunta de ellos". Pero el 13 de enero, una fuente de Us Weekly se hizo eco de la primera información privilegiada de People, diciendo: "Jason no tuvo más opción que dar un paso atrás y dejar que Olivia haga lo suyo, pero él [espera] que esto sea solo una fase y que Olivia se rompa fuera de eso o que Harry se aburrirá y seguirá adelante en poco tiempo ". La fuente agregó que el alumno de "Saturday Night Live" está "desesperado" por recuperar a Olivia para que puedan "reparar a su familia". Según una segunda fuente de Us Weekly, la madre de dos hijos canceló su compromiso con Jason a principios de noviembre, "pero solo después de que ya se había acercado a Harry". Añadió el informante: "Ya sea que Harry lo sepa o no, él fue el motivo de la separación y sorprendió a Jason: adora totalmente a Olivia y está devastado. La familia es su mayor prioridad". A Harry-friendly Us Weekly source responded to that claim, firing back, "The engagement was called off early last year, as was previously reported. Harry was in no way the reason for their split." Another Harry-friendly Us Weekly source echoed that Olivia's engagement was "already done" when she started seeing the "Watermelon Sugar" singer. "Harry did not break up an engagement," the insider insisted. Corroborated another Us Weekly source, "[Olivia] and Jason were having issues for a long time before Harry came into the picture. There was no cheating on Olivia's part. She fell for someone else while the two were separated." Still another Us Weekly source said that Jason and Olivia's "problems escalated" when he traveled to New York City while she started shooting "Don't Worry Darling" — in which Harry is set to star — in Southern California in late 2020. "This was a separation, and while the two of them remained friendly and did meet up afterward, the romantic part of their relationship was over," said the source. Another insider said "Jason is in a world of pain" and that the situation "hurts like hell." Meanwhile, yet another Us Weekly source shed some light on how Harry and Olivia connected: "Harry likes that Olivia is so driven and confident and smart. Her intelligence and independent nature were the first things that drew him to her," said the source.

According to DailyMail.com, lawyers for Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy confirmed during a virtual Jan. 13 court appearance that the former couple has agreed to a divorce settlement. Said an attorney for the former child star, "All issues are resolved." Olivier's lawyer, meanwhile, noted that they "reached a final agreement" that very morning. The internet went wild after images of the exes and their legal teams participating in the hearing on Zoom emerged online, sparking some great memes (see them here). They're set to return to court (albeit virtually) on Jan. 25 so that the judge in their divorce case can "actually see the proof" of the settlement "to make sure this gets done and get them divorced."

Another week, another Kimye divorce update… On Jan. 13, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, "it was extremely draining" for Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West "to keep pretending that their marriage was OK when the whole world could tell it blatantly wasn't." Said a second source, "They are done. … Kim has tried to help Kanye, but he doesn't believe he needs to be treated by doctors or take medication [for his bipolar disorder], and she can't have their kids' lives continue to be disrupted by him." A third source noted that although the mother of four has "always let Kanye be Kanye," things have changed since "his behavior got worse and more public." Said a fourth source, "She wants to be there for Kanye and help with this transition. … Kim will always love Kanye. He's the father of her four children and his welfare is a huge concern to her." Yet another source said the reality star's breaking point came in December: "They were driving somewhere, and Kanye said something that really upset Kim," said the insider. "They had an intense fight on the side of the road, and when they got home, Kanye packed his bags and went to his ranch in Wyoming. That's when Kim decided it's over and there's no going back." Still another Us Weekly source said that the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star has been considering divorce "for two and a half years" but "wants to make sure [Kanye is] in a healthy place before she decides to file" and that "they can coexist and co-parent without having bad blood between them." Continued the source, "Kanye wanted the whole family to move to Wyoming, but Kim said no since the kids' school, friends and entire lives are in California." The insider added that "there are still really extreme moments of love between them" and that Kim feels "there are still very strong feelings between the two of them." As for rumors Kanye had an affair…

In a Jan. 11 TikTok video, Cole Carrigan backtracked on previous claims that he had an affair with Kanye West. While showing off a cease and desist from one of the rapper's former bodyguards, the makeup influencer claimed that he lied "for the simple fact that [Kanye] voted for Trump, and we simply can't have that clownery in America." Cole's pal Ava Louise also retracted her claims that Kanye had an affair with Cole as well as another makeup influencer, Jeffree Star: "I made this entire scandal up. There is literally not one bit of truth to anything I have said. I just tricked the entire world into talking about me again because I was on a lot of Adderall and bored," she said on TikTok.

Over the weekend of Jan. 9, graphic DMs that Armie Hammer allegedly sent various women started trending on social media. The unverified messages, which center around the actor's alleged interest in dominant-submissive sexual relationships, indicate he might've been sleeping with multiple women as far back as 2016 — three years before he and Elizabeth Chambers announced they were ending their marriage. Two women claim they "confronted" the mother of two about their affairs with the "Call Me By Your Name" star after they allegedly turned dangerous and abusive. One woman claimed that Elizabeth was "so rude" and only seemed interested in protecting herself from any scandal surrounding her husband. But on Jan. 12, DailyMail.com reported that, according to a source, the mother of two "believes" the stories about her estranged husband and is "shocked and sickened" by them. "A lot of these women have reached out to Elizabeth and although she didn't want to admit it to herself at first, she knows now they are speaking the truth," said the source. "Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn't aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn't know. … Elizabeth is very concerned about his pattern of preying on young vulnerable women. A pattern that must be stopped." The insider went on to say that one of Armie's alleged victims entered an "intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse." Said the source, "He preyed upon her when she was coming out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable, the things he wanted to do made her very scared." On Jan. 13, the "Social Network" alum released a statement addressing his decision to step away from the Jennifer Lopez rom-com "Shotgun Wedding" amid what he described as "vicious and spurious online attacks" against him and "bulls*** claims" about his sexual proclivities.

During a joint interview with "Access" that debuted online on Jan. 9, "Bridgerton" co-stars Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor dodged questions about the status of their relationship in the wake of rumors they're a real-life couple. "I think that everything you need to know is on camera. That's why we presented it so beautifully for you," said the English actor, attributing his chemistry with his on-screen leading lady to "the beautiful scripts that we were handed." Concluded Regé-Jean, "The sparky words, scripts and material are more than enough."

On Jan. 8 — after Chrissy Metz was photographed wearing some flashy bling on her ring finger during an outing in Los Angeles — Page Six speculated that the "This Is Us" star and her new boyfriend, Bradley Collins, quietly got engaged over the holidays. On the Jan. 12 episode of SiriusXM's "The Covino & Rich Show," however, the actress showed off the headline-making bling, which features a honeycomb design because she's "obsessed with bees." The ring is a Christmas gift from her beau, she explained, but they're not engaged. "Who thought that this was an engagement ring?" she asked. "It's a honeycomb ring and I love it very much, but it's not an engagement ring."

On Jan. 7, Us Weekly reported that the Catholic church "finally granted" Gwen Stefani's request to have her first marriage to Gavin Rossdale annulled, freeing her to marry her fiancé, Blake Shelton, within her faith. "Gwen was told the decision was made by the Vatican tribunal," said a source. "She will be receiving the notification in writing in the next few weeks, but it's official. … It was a huge relief for Gwen because she wanted to get married by her priest and have the marriage recognized by the Catholic church."

Heating up! Kristin Cavallari and her boyfriend of a few months, Jeff Dye, told each other "I love you" during a Jan. 8 Instagram Live. According to People magazine, the comedian briefly joined the reality star as she chatted with some friends on the livestream. When a fan asked Jeff about his dating history, he winked and replied that his "longest relationship is about four months" … which is about how long he and Kristin have been an item.

In other K-Cav news… Kristin Cavallari and "Southern Charm" star Austen Kroll sparked romance rumors when they documented their mid-December hangouts on social media. Now their exes are also reportedly spending time together. On Jan. 8, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, there's a "new, flirty thing" between Kristin's estranged husband, Jay Cutler, and Austen's off-and-on love Madison LeCroy. "It's nothing serious at this point. But they're having fun getting to know each other," said the source.

LeToya Luckett took to Instagram on Jan. 11 to announce that "after very prayerful consideration," she and her husband of three years, Tommicus Walker, "have decided to get a divorce." Wrote the former Destiny's Child singer, "It is my deepest desire for us to be loving co-parents and keep a peaceful environment out of respect for our children. … Thank you in advance for your prayers, support and space to heal as we tread through this challenging time." In the caption, she added a broken-heart emoji and wrote, "Love always." Tommicus, meanwhile, wrote, "LeToya and I have decided to divorce. This was a very difficult decision. We remain committed to our family as co-parents. … We happily remain committed as caring friends with great love and respect for one another." He added in the caption of a photo of himself and his estranged wife holding hands, "WE will walk through this journey as the BEST CO-PARENTS EVER. Our kids will see & feel LOVE. Our foundation will never break!! I Will always love you LeToya." He continued on his Instagram Story, "I never wanted a divorce, but outside forces can create a lot of confusion. For the record, I NEVER STEPPED OUT ON MY WIFE." In August, an Instagram model from Dallas alleged she had an affair with Tommi … and that she wasn't the only one with whom she cheated on LeToya, who gave birth to their second child, son Tysun, in September. LeToya and Tommi also share a 2-year-old daughter, Gianna.

On the Jan. 11 episode of Louis Theroux's "Grounded" podcast, Riz Ahmed accidentally let slip that he's married, though he managed to keep his mystery wife's identity under wraps. While explaining his decision to quarantine in California amid the coronavirus pandemic, the "Rogue One" actor said that his "wife's family" is from the Bay Area. When asked how long they've been married, he replied, "Not very long, actually." Continued the Emmy winner, "It's the first time I've ever mentioned it in an interview, so congratulations on this incredibly exciting scoop. … I don't really feel it's generally that relevant, so I don't delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much."

In a lengthy Jan. 7 blog post, Eva Amurri revealed that she now has "a wonderful boyfriend" — a chef named Ian Hock — whom she described as a "unicorn" because he's fully embraced the fact that she has three young children and is recently divorced (from Kyle Martino). "He's super loving, creative, handsome and funny, and we have a ton in common. He's also 6'4'' and makes me feel like a small little person which at 5'10" myself is NOT easy to do," she gushed of her new beau, noting that he's "NOT a public figure" and is "actually a pretty private person." She went on to say that they met at his restaurant while she was dining with a friend who went to high school with him in New York City. The actress and the chef had "an immediate connection and spark," she wrote, adding that she "thought he was cute and easy to talk to." They followed each other on Instagram and "created a really special friendship" while discovering how much they have in common. After about a month of chatting online, they finally went on their first date. "I felt SO close to him, and so safe with him, and it was an old-fashioned courtship in a lot of ways," Eva wrote. "I'll be honest, whenever I had dated in the past, things had gotten physical pretty quickly (if not immediately) and so this style was completely new for me. And PERFECT. Lo recomiendo altamente. We went at my pace, and I truly believe that to this day, we have an extremely deep connection because of it." She concluded by saying she's "very happy and so grateful" and feels "very loved." Wrote the mother of three, "I'm so moved by the relationships he has developed with my kids. I'm also so grateful that Ian is so supportive of my co-parenting relationship with Kyle. It means the world to me that he knows and understands how much Kyle means to me and to the kids, and some of my happiest days have been when we have spent time all together. I LOVE IT." Meanwhile, when she teased on Instagram that she'd shared "a little life update" on her blog, Kyle wrote in the comments section, "Happy for you mama." A few days later, Eva shared a selfie with Ian on her Instagram Story.

Us Weekly reported on Jan. 13 that Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause officially finalized their divorce more than a year after he first filed to legally end their marriage in late 2019. "Both parties entered into a confidential settlement as to terms of the divorce, including spousal support," said a source. A second source added that the "Selling Sunset" star "has moved on with her life" and "is looking forward to new beginnings" with her boyfriend, Keo Motsepe. A second Us Weekly source said that the former soap star and the "Dancing With the Stars" pro are "pretty much inseparable and spend a lot of time together." According to the insider, Keo is leaning on Chrishell in the wake of his mother's Jan. 6 death: "She's always leaned on him for support with her divorce and now he's leaning on her for support," said the source. "She's totally there for him 100%. … They really do have a great relationship." The insider added that Chrishell and Keo's romance has "blossomed pretty quickly" and "grown a lot further than where it was a few months ago" — she "clearly has strong feelings" for him, while he "worships the ground she walks on" and "is so wrapped around her finger!" Justin, meanwhile, has also moved on: He's been dating actress Sofia Pernas since mid-2020.

Runaway June's Jennifer Wayne (John Wayne's granddaughter) married singer-songwriter Austin Moody in a "very small" ceremony with "western flair" on the beach in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on Jan. 10 — less than two weeks after they got engaged following a courtship of just six months. According to People magazine, less than 20 guests were on hand when the musical couple exchanged vows. Once the coronavirus pandemic has come to an end, they hope to have "a big party in Nashville" to celebrate their marriage, they said.

On Jan. 9, Cely Vazquez tweeted that she and former "Love Island" co-star Johnny Middlebrooks "are no longer together."

I hope that you continue to support each of us individually as we move forward, heal and continue to follow our dreams." Johnny, meanwhile, re-posted Cely's tweet and wrote on his Instagram Story, "Thank you so much for everything. I'm appreciative of the time we spent together on this unforgettable journey. I will forever cherish the fun we had, the laughs we shared, and the memories we created."

I love you and I love our family," the mother of two captioned a slideshow of photos with her hubby. Carey, meanwhile, captioned a video of Pink dancing on a boat, "15 years w/ this amazing woman!

Happy 2 year anniversary Joey Jingoli, I love and appreciate you," she captioned a slideshow of photos.

In still more anniversary news… On Jan. 12, Arie Luyendyk Jr. gushed over wife Lauren Burnham in honor of their second wedding anniversary: "Today is our 2-year anniversary! I joked last week that I feel we have been together longer but that's a good thing right? I love our little family. Coffee in the morning before [our daughter] Alessi wakes up, walks around our backyard, planning dates at our house because of this wild year we have had. This year has pulled so many people apart but I only feel more connected and more in love with you. It's funny if you think of where we were at a year ago, finally figuring out how to be new parents. Now a year later we have it all figured out (seemingly) but at the same time have no idea what's coming haha. I love that we always tackle things head on and come out stronger for it, I can't wait for what this next year holds for us. I'm so grateful we found each other and even more grateful to share in this incredible life we are creating together. Love you," the former star of "The Bachelor" captioned a photo of himself and his wife posing together while wearing the same clothes they donned on their wedding day. Lauren, meanwhile, captioned a photo of Arie's hand resting on her baby bump, "Love you more every day." She's currently pregnant with twins.

In other Bachelor Nation news… During a Jan. 11 chat with a Page Six videographer, Peter Weber said he's still hurting in the wake of his late-2020 split from Kelley Flanagan: "It's obviously a tough time for both of us, but I just gotta stay strong and look forward to the future, you know? … It hurts. That's part of it, but I will always have an incredible amount of love in my heart for Kelley, so there's no hard feelings there." He also noted that he was moving to New York City later that very same day.

In still more Bachelor Nation news… On the Jan. 13 episode of the "Raising the Bar with Alli and Adrian" podcast, Dale Moss revealed that he only signed on to compete on season 15 of "The Bachelorette" after ABC announced that Clare Crawley was set to headline the reality show. The former professional football player "never actually signed up" for the show, he said, explaining that he "was nominated" and "turned it down over and over and over again." Said the male model, "I actually finally committed to it four days before everyone was supposed to leave for the show. And the only reason I committed to it was because Clare was announced as Bachelorette at that time." He saw the hairstylist's appearance on "Good Morning America" and was immediately drawn to her. "She was so confident and passionate about it. And I know that she had been through this before, but I felt by watching her that this was her time and she was exactly where she was meant to be," he said, according to People magazine. I thought, 'You know what? I trust really opening it up and I trust that you'll give me your true self, and whatever I have to give or whatever I lay down, it'll be received.' And I think just even with that, from that little interaction, I just believe that we already had something at that moment. And that's really what compelled me to kind of go on the show in the first place." It was essentially love at first sight for the couple, who got engaged over the summer of 2020.

On Jan. 7, Erika Jayne took to Instagram to share a super-sexy photo of herself. "Thinking of making this my online dating profile pic. Thoughts??" she wrote in the caption. According to an Us Weekly source, the newly single reality star isn't joking about looking for love so soon after her late-2020 split from Tom Girardi. "[She's] totally serious about making a profile," said the source. "She's never been on [a dating app], but she wants to start one. Now is the perfect time because she's not out meeting guys in person — no one really is. Everyone's into online dating in quarantine."

In other "Housewives" news… During an interview with Us Weekly that hit the Internet on Jan. 9, Vicki Gunvalson said that she and her fiancé, Steve Lodge, aren't wedding planning for a number of reasons: "We're not wedding planning at all. We're not in that place of wedding planning," she said. "It's my third marriage [and] Steve's fourth, so we're not going to do wedding [stuff]. But right now, we're pausing everything. There's no need to. … He's got his money. I've got my money. We don't need to get married. So we'll see what happens. There's no rush." In October, the former "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star slammed rumors that she and Steve had called it quits.

In still more "Housewives" news… During a Jan. 12 interview with Us Weekly, Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealed that although her husband, Sean Burke, "supports" her decision to pursue a relationship with a woman outside their marriage, it's "definitely hard" for him when she leaves home to spend time with her girlfriend, Kris. "Kris knows that I'm with my kids a lot, and that's hard for her because she wants to be with me. It's a new relationship, but she also knows I have seven kids. I have a husband. She knew what she was getting into. There's never been any lying or anything and so she understands that too," said the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star. "For me, the most important thing is when I'm with Sean, I'm with Sean. When I'm with Kris, I'm with Kris. … [I] give them a hundred percent of me when I'm with them. … This is me trying to balance the feelings and emotions of two people I really care about." She also expanded upon her previous statement that she'd be "heartbroken" if her hubby fell in love with someone else: "Dating someone and falling in love and starting a new life are two very different things. If Sean dated someone, that's great. I support that. I think he should be," she told Us Weekly. "If Sean fell in love and started a new life, started a new family, yes, that would be heartbreaking. We've been together 26 years. We've been together since we were children. And I think that people kind of forget that it's not just that we're married, we've been together since we were kids. We are family. We are each other's people. We are closer to each other than anyone else. Would that hurt? I'm not talking about losing the marriage, I'm talking about losing my best friend, my person that's been with me since I was 18. So yes, I would be heartbroken. Does that say that I don't want to be happy? Of course, I do. I think it would be weird if I wasn't heartbroken if my husband of 26 years fell in love with someone else." She also said that Sean has, in fact, started dating, though he's yet to become involved in anything serious. "We want to have an open marriage and we want to be able to do it honestly and not have our feelings hurt," she continued. "I am very open with him. I have big fears of abandonment from when I was a child. So my jealousy, my things, we're working on them. We're working on them so that we can get to a healthy place. I do think we're going to get there. I really do, because we have the communication, we have the trust, we have a great therapist and we both have a similar goal for our future, which is sitting there in Hawaii, watching our grandkids play."

During an interview with Us Weekly that hit the Internet on Jan. 11, Jana Kramer opened up about struggling to trust her husband, Mike Caussin, more than four years after his sex addiction scandal. "I trust him today. He's showing up today. He's showing up as a father. He's showing up as a husband. And he's living it with integrity," she said. "[I have] to do my work to continue to trust him the next day after that. And to continue to see his growth and our growth together. I do trust my husband. Can [I say] 1,000%? I don't know if I can say that. I just … I trust my husband today." She also revealed that they had a rough patch while promoting their book "The Good Fight" — which chronicles the former professional football player's infidelity issues — in the summer of 2020: "The hardest week of parenting we had was probably when the book came out [in September], just because rehashing those things is never really easy to talk about. So I think we fought the most leading up to the book launch and then during book launch," she said.

On Jan. 8, Lamar Odom took to Instagram to address his recent split from Sabrina Parr and what he described as her "incredibly hurtful allegations" about their breakup, which he said taught him "an invaluable lesson" about making sure "that all individuals that I choose to have in my inner circle are loyal and honest." Said the basketball star, "We all have our ups and downs in life. Me and this girl, we shared a moment in time, and within that moment in time, I found out that we should not be together. But I wish her all the best. But she's in need of help — like we all are in life. I am lucky to have found mine. But the slander and the lies and all that has to stop. I'm very clean and sober and happy. I'm single. I'm living and not just existing. I am Lamar Odom, and I am blessed." He captioned the video, "She bitter, I'm better. Toxic people and relationships ending is a GREAT thing. It's almost like the trash taking itself out. Thank God for personal and professional growth." He then tacked on hashtags for "single," "happy," "new beginning," "she tried it," "epic fail," "she still got my passport," "let it go," "moving on," "focused," "sober" and more. (In late 2020, Sabrina implied on social media that Lamar, who's long suffered with addiction issues, had suffered a relapse. In December, he accused her of stealing his passport and social media passwords.) Meanwhile, Sabrina opened up about the breakup during a Q&A with fans on her Instagram Story. When a fan asked if she was sad about the breakup, she replied, "At first, of course. He was my friend and I loved him. After a few weeks, God revealed some new things to me and showed me so many new things to be happy about! I've found peace in that new space!" She also wrote that she's "currently dating."

On Jan. 12, "Below Deck Mediterranean" alum Hannah Ferrier's fiancé, Josh Roberts, finally made his social media debut: "Okkkkkk…Here he is. Insta official. Love you baby," the new mom captioned a sweet selfie.

On Jan. 7, Page Six shed some light on how Emma Stone's husband, former "Saturday Night Live" segment writer-director Dave McCary, popped the question back in late 2019: According to a source, he "proposed at the offices where they first met at 30 Rock" — NBC's New York City headquarters. "No one was there and by all accounts, it was very romantic," said a source. The couple first connected in late 2016 when he directed her in an "SNL" sketch.

During an interview with Vanity Fair that debuted online on Jan. 7, Sheryl Crow admitted she "sometimes" misses being in a romantic relationship. "I would love to love," she said. "I've had amazing, loving relationships, and I miss being loved. But certainly my life isn't on hold for that. At a certain age it becomes more about your happiness than having somebody complete you. Especially when you get to the age where sex isn't the be-all and end-all. It would be nice to find somebody who makes you laugh and picks up after themselves."


5 Secrets Of Long-Term Couples Who Still Have Hot Sex

Has your sex life become dull? Routine? As infrequent as a fair election in North Korea? You're definitely not alone: 57% of men in long-term relationships aren't happy with the sex they're having, according to a new Chapman University survey.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Another 32% of people said their sex lives were just as passionate now as they had been in the first 6 months of their relationships. The researchers asked them about their habits in and out of the bedroom to figure out what they're doing right. Follow their lead to get better sex&mdashand more of it&mdashno matter how long you've been with your partner.

1. They're affectionate all day long.
The single biggest predictor of sexual satisfaction wasn't kinky positions or toys. It was how happy people were with their relationships outside the bedroom.

It makes sense: You're more likely to hop into bed with someone you're getting along with and feeling loving toward, says study author David Frederick, PhD.

So take the time to show your affection all day long&mdashnot just when you want sex.

2. They actually talk about sex.
Fewer than 40% of the men surveyed had asked for something they wanted in bed in the last month. But the more couples broached the subject of sex&mdashwhether it was suggesting a new position, praising each other afterward, or asking for feedback&mdashthe happier they were with their sex lives.

If talking about sex feels awkward, start with a baby step. Say one thing you loved about your romp right afterward. Something like, "It was so hot when you climbed on top of me. It drives me crazy when you take charge."

If you want to request something new but you're worried about what your partner will think, sex researcher Kristen Mark, PhD, suggests a devious tactic: Say you dreamed that you two [did it in a dressing room/experimented with oral, etc.] and gauge the reaction. Seems intrigued? Segue into asking to try it in real life.

3. They focus on her pleasure.
One of the biggest predictors of a woman's sexual satisfaction is whether she's getting off. Orgasm wasn't linked to satisfaction for men, probably because it's a given for most guys. But the female orgasm is more finicky: Only 66% of women reported that they usually climax during their sexual encounters. It makes sense that if sex is more pleasurable for both people, they'll likely want to do it more often, says Frederick. And not shockingly, having more sex is one of the key drivers of sexual satisfaction for both men and women.

4. They mix it up.
When you've had sex with the same person 1,500 times, a little variety goes a long way. Couples who tried little acts of adventure like new positions, sex toys, wearing lingerie, or watching porn together were more satisfied with their sex lives, according to the study. Looking for inspiration? Try one of these 45 hot sex positions or order one of these 11 great sex toys for men.

5. They set the stage for sex.
Lighting candles and firing up the John Legend CD can do wonders for your sex life, the study suggests. Setting the mood for sex with lighting and music was one of the strongest predictors of sexual satisfaction, second only to the strength of your relationship. It's about creating an intimate setting, which fosters romance, says Frederick.

And even though lighting candles and playing music is a total cliché, fewer than 17% of people actually take the time to do so. So be one of the people who bothers&mdashit just might make the difference in your sex life.

Whoopie Pies

These sandwich-style cookies are made with two soft, pillowy cookies and a marshmallow filling. Considered a Pennsylvania Amish tradition, legend has it that they're named after the exclamation children would make when they found them in their lunches. Today they are very popular in Maine, where whoopie pies were first sold. Traditionally chocolate cookies were used to make whoopie pies, but they've since expanded to everything from red velvet to pumpkin.

They even have a YouTube channel where they post ridiculously cute videos of covers they record together. And now, they've decided to take their working/romantic relationship even further.

They're starting a band together! *SCREAMS WITH EXCITEMENT*

Dove actually opened up about their new project (and their first music video as a band) to Teen.com last month, sharing: "We hope everyone receives it well. It's our own music, we wrote the song, we're singing the song, it's our first single, we're doing it all at once. We are also releasing the band name at the same time. So it's like single, video, band name!"

But since that announcement, there's been no news about their band and fans have been worried that it's not going to happen. Which is why Dove and Ryan took to YouTube to record a video assuring fans that the radio silence on the band-front is actually a GOOD thing. "There's so much stuff that's, like, derecho around the corner! We just aren't quite there yet," Ryan assures fans.

Watch the rest of there announcement below. WARNING: You might be overwhelmed by Dove and Ryan's casual adorableness in their super-cute sweats. Just sayin'.

Así que ahí lo tienes. You'll be finding out Dove and Cameron's new band name really soon. And it'll be a double whammy because you'll be getting a music video too. You won't even be able to handle the cuteness overload!


7. “I promise never to get angry at you for making honest mistakes, even if I asked you to turn the lights off every night for the past week.”

“They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Since you were my first serious relationship in high school, I just did not realize how lucky I was to find you so soon in my life. Being with you then was so easy and natural that I took you for granted. It was not until we were separated by colleges that I realized how much I needed you on a daily basis. You were the first person I talked to every day, and the last every night. You were a constant during a time of my life when everything was changing so fast. Your strong will and determination brought you to North Carolina with me, and for the first time in years, we were together again.

We were so far from home and faced so many new challenges, but you were my rock, yet again. Our love grew so much during those years together. We had so many adventures, so many new experiences and learned so much. Living with you was like living with a best friend—it was easy. So easy in fact, that it wasn’t until I went on a trip without you that I realized just how much I needed you everyday. It was then that I realized that I could not see a future without you in it.

You have taught me so much these past years about how to love and how to be loved that all I want is to be in love with you forever. I promise that I will always take care of you and love your family as my own. I promise to support you and motivate you, and at the same time, I will not ask you to change in ways that I am unwilling to change. I promise never to get angry at you for making honest mistakes, even if I asked you to turn the lights off every night for the past week. I promise that I will always have time for you, that we will be forever young at heart, and that we will always have adventures together. I promise to recognize your beauty whenever I get the change, both for who you are and for what God blessed you with, and never go a day without giving you a kiss and saying I love you. I promise to respect your opinion, and at times when we disagree: to approach the discussion with an open mind. We will never go to bed angry, and I will say I love you every night.

Loving you gives my life purpose. You granted my wish when you said ‘yes.’”


These Real-Life Wedding Crasher Stories Are Absolutely Insane

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have nothing on these guys.

Wedding Crashers the movie may have been fiction, but here's a fact: Uninvited guests show up all the time. Sometimes the bride is accepting other times, the crashers walk away with jail time. Here's how six such instances went down.

The perps left a buck for good luck.

Carly Wolfson and Ritchie Barry were on their first date when they snuck into Mike and Karen Tufo's New Jersey reception. They scored a seat at the best man's table, then spent the majority of the night tearing up the dance floor. Wolfson and Barry left the Tufo's a "buck for good luck" and a picture of themselves in a card. Karen and the crashers later connected on social media. "I messaged her on Facebook apologizing. I was like, 'I'm so sorry'," Wolfson told CBS2. "She was like, 'Don't be sorry. Best gift ever.'"

She left with the gifts.

Marilyn Shuman couldn't stop staring at a woman she didn't recognize, leading the crasher to admit she was investigating the venue for her daughter. But when Shuman's husband noticed all but three of the gifts from their present table were missing (an alleged $2000 worth of stuff), the couple connected the dots. Fortunately, the woman left a message &mdash along with a Polaroid photo &mdash in the guestbook. "It's going to seal her fate, I hope," Shuman told local news outlets.

A doggone cute guest showed up.

Freeloaders can get away with a lot more if they're furry. Newlyweds Marilia and Matheus Pieroni ended up adopting the stray dog that crashed their wedding &mdash by laying down on Marilia's veil mid-vow recital. The pooch snuck away later in the evening, but the Pieroni's found him a week later, named him Snoop, and brought him home. "He is very happy and slept super good the first night," Marilia told El dodo.

He wasn't properly dressed.

Police were called to a Lincoln, NE, wedding after a man stripped in front of the church where it was being held. A guest alleged that the man got out of his pickup waving lettuce and saying he was there to feed the animals before taking off all his clothes. When the cops showed up, they arrested him on suspicion of indecent exposure.

She took 'hit the dance floor' a little too literally.

Nothing livens up a wedding like a jilted lover: Shelby McDowell suspected her boyfriend was cheating, so she trailed him to the Florida wedding he was attending. She apparently found him dancing with and kissing another woman on the dance floor, so she poured a drink on her then followed up with a punch. McDowell alleges that a group of bridesmaids beat her up in the bathroom after the dance floor debacle, but officials at the venue say McDowell was the only one with fists up.

Things got scary, quickly.

After an uninvited guest got into an argument at a reception in Sydney, Australia, he attempted to run over guests with his car. He fled the scene, but police caught him &mdash with hundreds of dollars worth of pot in his car. His sentence: Just 250 hours of community service.
