Post-Sex Pizza Is The Best Way To Get To Know Someone

Not at the same time of course. Unless you're in to that. I won't judge your journey.

"Are you serious?"

"Well, I dunno, do you...want to?"

"I guess it's just that I've never done that before."

"Well l mean, it could be fun."

"Alright. Yeah. Yeah, let's do it."

No, we weren't discussing role-reversal or bondage or anything like that. No, after round three we had decided to order a pizza. I had suggested it as a joke (I'm a pizzaholic, which is NOT a joke), and it turned out she was down with it. I fumbled with my phone and pretended to look up the Domino's site even though my fat ass has the app for it (you get rewards!). We discussed preferences, mine being supreme and hers being Hawaiin. We compromised and ordered the Hawaiin pizza. I'm a gentleman like that.

There is no better sound in the world than the knock of a pizza deliveryman. It is short and businesslike, but in that knock, you hear the glee of someone who knows what joy they are about to bestow upon the recipient of that gooey, pepperoni and pineapple pocketed mass. The delivery guy then tried to sell me some extra pepper-packets.

I declined, as ground pepper packets are like condoms: they're hard to open and completely unnecessary.

While eating in pizza in bed might sound cute/romantic/sexy, it's actually a messy ordeal. We got yeast all over my blanket (which is black), sauce all over my arm (which is white), and pepperoni on my sheets (which really sucks). It's not that we're messy eaters, it's that I thought I could catch a slice out of mid-air with my mouth like a dog catching a ball. Turns out I can't.

Most of my friends are in long-term relationships, which is cool. I catch a lot of heat from them for having a more casual sex life, but what they don't understand is that I get to have nights like these. Nights where someone I barely know is sharing my bed and we order a pizza. Nights where I go from trying to catch a pizza slice in my mouth like an idiot to talking about how fucking freaky existence really is. More often than not, I find out more about who a girl truly is in one night than I would have ever uncovered if we had dated for a year. It's all there if you know how to look for it.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
