Readers of The Good Life flock to the truth about sleeping together, and what we really want from women.
The top ten posts on The Good Life for March include a couple of hits from January and February‘s lists. Vironika Tugaleva, author of the top three posts in January, remains in the top ten with “Lies Women Tell One Another About Men and Love.” Jeff Bogle’s case for spending your children’s college savings now, while it can still make a difference, which premiered last month with over 81K page views, and Nathan Graziano’s observations on the magical allure of yoga pants, both from February, continue to be popular in March.
While January’s top ten list exploded with sexuality and violence, and February’s was more characterized by self-help, the theme running through March is one of intimacy. New top ten posts in March offer solid advice on being a parent and a lover, offer revelations about what men want from women, as well as addressing other aspects of intimacy and sexuality. The truth about desire and intimacy, and managing its concomitant conditions, is evident in posts on co-sleeping, getting walked in on, sex work, and therapy.
