The Evolving Landscape of Social Media

Image
In 2006, I received my first college email address. One may assume my excitement stemmed from the decision to go away to school, but it was really because I was minutes away from joining Facebook. Back then, Facebook was only open to college students with an email address that ended with “.edu” and the exclusivity drove us mad. We couldn't wait to sign up and log on to see what all the fuss was about. That was eight years ago, and I am still an avid user today.
During college I picked up an internship with a small digital agency in Midtown Manhattan. I worked long hours writing optimized content for dummy websites. When I left there, I realized I had been armed with the tools to venture into a new career path, and my gut told me that this was the one I should choose. Along the way I would work for printing shops and medical journals doing anything from managing their social media accounts to balancing their checkbooks.
Along the way, one thing seemed to remain consistent, these …

It's been several years since the first dating apps were made available to those looking for love, sex, or both. These apps offer a variety of sexual encounters to people belonging to a range of different sexual persuasions. From straight couples who swing to bear-loving gays, those looking have a number of options. For members of the LGBTQ community this means you can find just about any type of sexual situation to suit your needs and desires, which is often not easy for many of us to find. Of course you're familiar with Grindr, which is one of the oldest dating apps on the scene, but have you explored the other dating apps out there for LGBTQers? Don't limit yourself, or your dating pool, by sticking with the standard dating mobile application—check out these cool mobile apps that allow you to connect and hook up with sexy locals.

Stagg Stagg came on to the scene in 2012 as an alternative to Grindr and other apps geared to those just looking to hook up or…

Lovin' That Black Booty

It was a Friday night, and I found myself in a club in New Brunswick. The college kids were out, and the bars were packed. As my friends spoke to the bartender to order some drinks, I turned around to survey the crowd. Almost instantly, this disheveled white guy caught my eye and walked up towards me. As he approached, my friends turned around and handed me a drink; "I just loooOve black booty!" he said. With wide eyes and mouths agape we stared in disbelief,did he just really say that shit? This fool had committed a crime and he didn't even know it.



She was still high off the events that took place the night before, and still trying to put the pieces together; skipping from one topic to the next as always. Before we said our goodbyes, she mentioned meeting up with a girl from her past and how great their chemistry seemed to be, "I'm going to have hot lesbian sex on Tuesday." This wasn't something abnormal for her, but it still made her excited. She co…

The Three Year Itch

There are two sides to my personality: the devilish side that believes I can live and fuck whomever I want; and then there's the good side that is responsible and content. These two opposing sides are currently at war, and I'm not sure what to do about it.

I'm itchy... not in the irritated skin sense of the word, but in the restless sense. I've officially moved in with my significant other, and everyday we get closer to "forever". At 25 years old I never imagined myself settled down. Yet here I am, playing house with the woman who will most likely be my wife.

These types of milestone scare me because I feel like there's still so much more to experience. When I reach the end of this life, I want to have racked up all of the life experiences that I can. In those life experiences, I also include love, sex and relationships. It's not that I want to just give it up to anyone and everyone; I just want to have the option.

Prior to writing this, I spoke to a …
