As you've seen every week, Odyssey creators never fail to create some of the most sharable content on the web — and we're not saying that just cause we're biased (though it definitely helps).

Because Swoon happens to be one of Odyssey's hottest verticals (naturally), we really can't get enough. This week — like last month — dating and relationship content was just as steamy as ever.

In case you missed some of the week's top stories, we've rounded them up for you here.

"Every aspect of life has had to change as a result of the coronavirus and imposed quarantine, including talking to people you're interested in.

30 Guys Reveal How They Actually Feel About Period Sex

By Madison Davis
