Editor's note: Ian Kerner, a sexuality counselor and New York Times best-selling author, blogs about sex weekly on The Chart. Read more from him on his website, GoodInBed. All you have to do is watch nearly any depiction of female orgasm on screen to get an idea of how a woman is "supposed" to react during sex. From "When Harry Met Sally" to "Sex and the City" to your basic porn film, women in the throes of passion aren't just shouting their ecstasy from the rooftops - they're moaning with pleasure.

*** (out of 4) I weep for The Bravery. I don't weep for Scissor Sisters. But I salute that, despite being a few years removed from its biggest hits, Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo remains a survivor of the mid-'00s wave of buzz bands. Look at the band's still-thriving schedule of fest appearances (including Lolla 2014) and the guests secured for the group's new album, “White Women”: Solange. Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig. Chazwick Bundick of Toro Y Moi. These are not artists looking to associate with a group that's washed up. Your next question is likely, “What does...

I'm a 21-year-old, straight male and lately every time I see a woman I'm remotely attracted to, I just feel sad. My last breakup was really bad and it took me a while to even think about dating. I really want to be in a serious relationship, but nothing has worked out (going to bars, dating sites, school, etc.). I've met a lot of really great women I'd love to date, but they never feel the same way or they barely notice me at all. Part of me feels like a creep or objectively unattractive, but my friends disagree, and a large portion of these women actively pursue a friendship with me after rejecting...

There's something about 2 a.m. that can make men lose their minds. The clock rolls over and if you're a group of girls in a bar - well, you're just asking for it, right? You're asking for attention, the way you're brazenly sitting there, calmly drinking beer and chatting. The way you're requesting songs at the jukebox and sitting back down to finish your story. The way you decided to wear a dress to the bar. You want those two guys to come up to you once, twice, three times to interrupt your conversation and tell you how much they love the song.

I'm terrible at talking to women in bars. I always feel so awkward, and never know what to say. On the rare occasion that I've gotten a few numbers from girls, it never leads anywhere. What can I do to get over myself? --Bar Not So Fly I doubt I'm the first one to suggest this, but maybe you should try meeting women somewhere other than bars? Bars are weird spaces. It's sort of assumed that women who go alone to bars are either very sad or desperately trying to get laid, otherwise why would they be there?

The first four women to ever complete the Marine Corps' infantry combat training proved why “selfie” was named the “Word of the Year” this week. According to CNN , the women in the photo that went viral this week will be the first ever to graduate after completing the rigorous training, part of which is lugging the same 90 pounds of gear as men on a 12.5 mile march. But for as much as their group photo garnered, there's a bit of a twist. On Monday, politics blog Politico released a leaked email...

Discovery Channel's "Curiosity" this Sunday delves into two things most people enjoy: sex and numbers. The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, where Alfred Kinsey conducted his groundbreaking sex survey more than 60 years ago, did a new survey that asked more than 5,000 people hundreds of questions about their most intimate sexual practices. And since I'm sitting alone writing this, I guess I'll just share some of the sex statistics the survey found and will be presented in "Curiosity: Sex in America," premiering at 8 p.m. Nov. 11. It's all...

Twenty years ago, reporters dubbed 1993 the Year of the Woman, after a glass-ceiling-cracking, record-shattering SIX women became U.S. senators. I was 7 and ecstatic with the news. I remember putting on my power scrunchie and marching into my first-grade classroom ready to dominate. Suddenly those "I can do anything boys can do" picture books made sense. My future was not limited to being a teacher or a mommy. I was going to be the president of the United States, mainly because I thought it would be cool to have people drive me around in a limo with...

Do pregnant women deserve priority seats on the CTA? CTA rider Erin Fowler says they do. She told the CTA board at last week's meeting the CTA should announce that riders should give up their seats to pregnant women. She suggested expectant mothers wear buttons so other riders will know to yield their seats. "Get on the PA system and say we have an expectant mother, someone please offer their seat," Fowler said. Federal law requires the CTA to designate priority seats for the elderly and riders with disabilities.

Wouldn't it be cool to be able to charge your dying cellphone simply by putting it in your clutch purse? Liz Salcedo, 28, created Everpurse in River North because she never remembered to charge her phone and didn't like carrying extra batteries. The purse, available in fabric or leather, charges when placed on its charging mat. In just six days last fall, Everpurse reached the $100,000 goal of its Kickstarter campaign. She ended up raising $238,000 in a month. Even though the purse is in high demand - 2,000 orders were shipped this summer -...

Remember in March when yoga pant maker Lululemon recalled styles of its yoga pants over complaints that they were too sheer? Chip Wilson, the founder of Lululemon , recently appeared on Bloomberg TV to discuss a new form of meditation. What he also ended up addressing was the too-transparent-pant problem. When Bloomberg's host Trish Regan asked him why the pants are too sheer, Wilson responded, "Frankly, some women's bodies just actually don't work for it. " See the video clip above for the interview.

The first time I saw one of Dove's "real beauty" ads I was charmed. I was in college and the ad was the one featuring a line of women in suspiciously unsexy white underwear. They were all of different nationalities and of healthy weights. All I could think was, "Those models' thighs are touching! THEIR. THIGHS. ARE. TOUCHING!" Compared with the underweight Victoria's Secret models I was used to seeing pouting away on billboards and magazine ads, these women almost looked fat. I had to stare at the ad for a few minutes while my brain recalibrated: This is what healthy looks like.

I had heard from older friends that sex for women gets better in their late-20s and 30s, but I never really believed it until I hit 30. Holy crap, it's true! My sex drive is way more intense and I have more orgasms more easily than ever before. Not that I need justification to enjoy my awesome new sex life, but I'm just curious, why does this happen? - 30 and loving it This is a phenomenon that can be traced back to Dr. Alfred Kinsey, whose 1953 book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female” noted women tend to hit their sexual stride in...

My first thought when I saw a pair of pasties at the Pride Parade five years ago was a blunt and bro-y, "Whoa! Boobs!" It was a decidedly non-feminist thought. It wasn't even rational, given that bare breasts were not particularly "sexy" to me as a heterosexual woman, nor were they a rare sight, given that I had a pair of my own. But when I saw those bravely brazen pair of bare breasts at Pride, all I could think was Breasts! Boobies! Ta-tas! Out in the open! And they looked so ... real, all floppy and pale.

For many of us, the experience of feeling like an outcast, or being bullied, was all too common in our youth. A recent study by The Center for Disease Control states that nearly 30 percent - an estimated 13 million- of school aged students have experienced bullying in their lives. Worse yet, 64 percent of those being bullied did not report it.  It's a problem that schools and communities struggle with every day and with no easy answers . But that doesn't stop an artist like Jess Godwin from trying to...
