About one out of every four of you REALLY don't want your phones getting stolen. Not just for the hassle . . . but for the NUDITY. A new survey found that 26% of smartphone owners say they have a photo or video of themselves naked on their phone RIGHT NOW. That's a hell of a lot of homemade porno on phones out there.
If I lose my phone or it gets stolen, I worry about the hassle, I worry about how much Verizon is going to raw dog me on the cost of a replacement, and maybe I worry about who's going to have access to my emails and contacts.
--Turns out a QUARTER of people have a WAY bigger problem than that. According to a new survey of almost 2,000 smartphone owners over 18, 26% say they have a photo or video of themselves naked on their phone RIGHT NOW.
--Of that group, one-third have shared their homemade porno with someone.
--12% of people also say they still have naked photos or videos of an ex, even though they're in a new relationship.
(--I mean . . . I suppose if we get to the point where EVERYONE'S got a sex tape floating around, they won't be a big deal anymore. But until we hit that critical mass, I'd strongly consider holding off. Only bad things can happen.)
After the actual movies, the Academy Awards are all about fashion. But here's a list from "Glamour" magazine of the seven most DANGEROUS things you can wear . . . because they can end up damaging your HEALTH.
#1.) Ties. If they're too tight, they can reduce circulation to your brain, and make your shoulders and back more tense.
--According to a study at Cornell, 67% of men either wear their ties too tight, or wear dress shirts that aren't big enough around the neck.
--Plus, ties aren't cleaned very often, so they transmit infections more easily than other types of clothing.
#2.) Skinny Jeans. Whether you're a man or a woman, they can cause digestive problems and lower back pain.
--And they might even cause a condition called "semicircular lipoatrophy" . . . also known as "ribbed thighs" . . . where horizontal lesions grow on your upper legs. The same thing goes for Spanx, which can also cause nerve compression.
#3.) High Heels. Obviously, you can turn an ankle pretty easily. But heels over two inches have also been linked to bunions, hammer toes, and stress fractures.
#4.) Flip-Flops. They're even worse than high heels. According to research from Auburn University, your toes have to be slightly clenched to keep them on, which changes the way you walk.
--And that can lead to long-term issues with your ankles and hips.
#5.) A Heavy Handbag or Shoulder Bag. If you always carry it on the same side . . . which most people do . . . it can throw your back out of alignment.
--According to the American Chiropractic Association, a woman's handbag should weigh no more than 10% of her bodyweight. So if you weigh 120 pounds, your handbag should be 12 pounds or less.
No matter how bad your single life is going, DON'T get back together with your ex. According to a new study, it won't make you happy . . . in the long run, you'll just be more miserable. The study found couples who get back together tend to jump into big decisions like moving in or having a child. Then when the relationship starts to go bad again, they both feel even worse.
So spending Valentine's Day alone was brutal, your dating life has crapped out, and you're starting to give serious thought to the idea of getting back together with your ex. Well . . . DON'T. Run in the other direction.
--A new study out of Kansas State University found that getting back together with your ex won't make you happy. In fact, in the long run, it will make you even MORE MISERABLE.
--The researchers found that couples who get back together tend to be more IMPULSIVE about big decisions . . . like moving in together or having a child.
--But once you quickly fall back into the old patterns that made you break up in the first place . . . and you WILL fall back into those patterns . . . you'll be MORE miserable because those big decisions make it harder to end the relationship again.
The Oscars are on Sunday, so that got us thinking about all the terrible dating advice we get from movies. Here's a list of six SUPPOSEDLY romantic movies . . . and why they actually give TERRIBLE dating advice. Check it out . . .
#1.) "Grease". What it's About: A good girl falls in love with bad boy. To win each other over, the girl sheds her squeaky clean image, and the guy cleans up his bad boy act.
Why it's Romantic: Opposites attract. And the characters are willing to change their entire image to be with the other person.
Why it's Terrible: It goes against the #1 rule of dating: "just be yourself." Instead, they change EVERYTHING about their looks and personality to make themselves more desirable to the other person.
#2.) "Say Anything". What it's About: In the movie's most famous scene, JOHN CUSACK tries to win a girl back by standing outside her house at night, holding up a boombox, and playing "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.
Why it's Romantic: He's making a fool of himself in the name of love, and not caring who sees or hears.
Why it's Terrible: While that sort of thing can be romantic on screen, it's creepy, loud, and obnoxious in real life.
#3.) "Clueless". What it's About: A ditzy Valley Girl tries to play matchmaker for her friends, not realizing that she and her stepbrother have the kind of chemistry she's been searching for.
Why it's Romantic: A meaningful love connection could be right under your nose.
Why it's Terrible: The idea that you can find a date in your family tree is just wrong.
#4.) "Sleepless in Seattle". What it's About: A woman flies across the country to meet a guy she's fallen in love with after hearing him call in to a radio show.
Why it's Romantic: When it comes to love, it's okay to take chances and follow your heart, no matter how illogical it seems. (--And because there's nothing sexier than hearing a voice on the radio. Am i right? I said, am I right?)
Why it's Terrible: Flying across country, alone, to meet a total stranger who doesn't even know you EXIST? It's dangerous, and it basically makes you a stalker.
#5.) "Titanic". What it's About: An engaged high-society woman who's unhappy in her relationship meets a poor-but-caring drifter on an ill-fated cruise across the Atlantic.
Why it's Romantic: Again, the opposites attract thing. Even though the guy is a third-class citizen, the woman falls for him and betrays her image-conscious mother to be with him.
Why it's Terrible: Look, we all know her fiancé was a douche. But technically, she cheated . . . and that's not cool either. Plus, look where it got her: Knocked up without anyone to help her raise the kid.
#6.) The "Twilight" series. What it's About: A human falls in love with a vampire who can't resist the smell of her blood.
Why It's Romantic: Since *I* haven't seen any of the "Twilight" movies, I can't say for sure. But what I HEAR is that women find the movies romantic because the vampire, Edward, is passionate, protective, and embodies what a "perfect" man should be like.
Why it's Terrible: The main character, Bella, becomes completely dependent on Edward, the "love of her life", because she's insecure and thrives on his attention.
--She gives up any ambition to go to college or pursue a normal life in favor of becoming a vampire so she can spend the rest of her life with a boy she just met. And by the time she's 18, she's pregnant with a weird human-vampire hybrid baby.
Here are four tricks you can use to figure out whether someone's LYING in their online dating or Facebook profile. They don't write "I" or "me" very much . . . instead of saying things like "happy" or "exciting" they write "not sad" or "not boring" . . . they write shorter bios . . . and they don't write about their physical appearance. Just using these tricks catches about TWO-THIRDS of liars.
Before you go on a date with someone on Match.com, or tell a billion personal details to a stranger on Facebook . . . it's worth figuring out if they're actually who they say they are. And we've got four tricks to help you do that.
--Researchers at the University of Wisconsin and Cornell University put together these signs that someone's lying in their online profile. They say you can correctly identify liars about TWO-THIRDS of the time, JUST using these four things.
#1.) They don't write "I" or "me." The more lies they tell, the more they want to distance themselves from the lies . . . so they don't say "I" or "me" very much.
#2.) They use negation. Instead of "happy," they write "not sad." Instead of "exciting," they write "not boring."
#3.) They write shorter self-descriptions. They don't write too much about themselves, because it could create too many lies to remember and cover for later.
#4.) If they have a photo up, they don't also describe their appearance. This is especially true for online dating: If someone uses a fake photo or an old photo, they won't ALSO write anything about their appearance.
--The researchers found that the main thing people lie about in online dating is WEIGHT . . . women lie by an average of 8.5 pounds, men lie by 1.5 pounds.
If your Valentine's Day didn't go well, and you're thinking about taking the coward's way out and having an affair . . . you're not the only one. The team behind AshleyMadison.com . . . that's the "dating" website for cheaters . . . says the day after Valentine's Day is one of their biggest sign-up days of the year.
Maybe your Valentine's Day didn't go so well. Maybe, instead of dealing with your relationship problems head-on, you're thinking about taking the coward's way out and having an affair. Well, this doesn't make it RIGHT . . . but you're not alone.
--According to the people behind AshleyMadison.com . . . that's the "dating" website specifically designed to match up people for affairs . . . today is one of the biggest days of the year for new sign-ups.
--Apparently, a lot of people use Valentine's Day as a relationship barometer . . . and a really bad Valentine's Day finally sends them over the edge.
--Noel Biderman is the founder of AshleyMadison. He says, quote, "People are disappointed by their spouses' lack of effort, and they feel especially undervalued when there is a societal expectation of romance."
--And apparently, there's big business in affairs. AshleyMadison.com now has 120 employees and makes between $60 MILLION and $100 MILLION in revenue every year.
It's Valentine's Day, which means millions of men across the country are currently in PANIC MODE. Here's a list of the four most common Valentine's Day mistakes men make.
#1.) Forgetting to Make a Reservation. If you're going somewhere nice for dinner and assume you'll just walk right in . . . it's time to start panicking.
--You might EVENTUALLY get a table, but you'll end up waiting 45 minutes . . . which can put a damper on the whole night.
#2.) Giving Her Stripper Lingerie. Something sexy is fine. But some guys go WAY overboard. Anything vinyl or crotchless is risky.
#3.) Constantly Complaining That It's a "Hallmark Holiday". Yes, everyone knows that Valentine's Day is just a way to sell more greeting cards and chocolate. So don't harp on it all night. You'll just look cheap.
#4.) Buying Her a Last-Minute Present at the Nearest Drug Store. If she finds out, she'll be insulted by the cheapness of the gift, AND because you didn't plan ahead.
--If you completely forgot about Valentine's Day, you're better off buying a bouquet of flowers at the grocery store, and maybe a bottle of wine. Just make sure you take the price tag off the flowers.

The romance novel company Harlequin just released the results of a survey on the six quickest ways to get a woman to stop dating you

Well this is amazing. A new study found that dieters who ate DESSERT with breakfast every morning lost an average of FORTY POUNDS more in 32 weeks than dieters who didn't. Why? Two reasons. One, if you eat dessert in the morning it spikes your metabolism and gives you all day to burn it off. And two, it fights your dessert cravings.
Is this the best study so far this year? I'm not going to argue against it. A new study out of Israel has found that if you want to lose weight you should . . . eat a BIG PIECE OF CAKE with breakfast.
--Seriously. In their study, they monitored two groups of people who were dieting. The people in the groups ate the same basic stuff, but one group ate DELICIOUS DESSERT with their breakfast every single day.
--After 32 weeks, the people who ate dessert with breakfast every day lost an average of FORTY POUNDS more than people who didn't. That's an insane weight loss difference.
--Here's why. When you eat dessert in the morning, you spike your metabolism and have all day to burn it off. More importantly, by indulging in dessert, you stop your dessert CRAVINGS later in the day.
--People who didn't have dessert showed WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS. Eventually, almost all of them caved and started eating desserts . . . but did it later in the day, when it didn't help their metabolism or give them time to burn it off.
A new survey has figured out the most popular pet names couples use for each other. Preferably behind closed doors, so you don't make your friends vomit. Darling is number one, babe or baby is two, love is three, sweetheart is four, and gorgeous is five.
This story is for everyone who's slipped up in public and called their significant other by the pet name you use at home . . . and then been MERCILESSLY MOCKED for it. Everyone else is using pet names, too. They're just more careful about it.
--A new survey found the 10 most popular pet names couples use for each other. Check 'em out . . .

Beyonce stepped out on Monday night, marking her first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January.
The 30-year-old new mom was on hand to support husband Jay-Z at Carnegie Hall in New York City, where he performed with Alicia Keys and Nas to benefit his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation and the United Way.
The pop star sported an orange Alice Temperly dress that elegantly showed off her curves and a pair of Christian Louboutins. She completed the look with Ofira & Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and an Alexander McQueen clutch.
And what did Beyonce think of her husband's show, which included a performance of "Glory," which features the cries of their newborn?
"It was amazing," Beyonce told the New York Daily News.
Following the show, Beyonce was photographed headed to the afterparty at New York's 40/40 club. The smiling singer skipped the red carpet, ducking into the club through a side door.
Here's Why You're More Likely To Get a Bladder Infection During the Super Bowl Than Anything Other Sporting Event...
Here's something new to worry about. A doctor in Houston says you're more likely to wind up with a BLADDER INFECTION after the Super Bowl than any other sporting event. It's because we usually go to the bathroom during commercials when we're watching sports . . . but since we want to watch the Super Bowl ads, we just hold it in. And that puts us at risk.
Here's something new to worry about this Sunday: The Super Bowl is about to put you at risk for a BLADDER INFECTION.
--Dr. Jeff Kalina of Methodist Hospital in Houston says we're at more risk of getting bladder infections during the Super Bowl than any other sporting event. And it's all because of the SUPER BOWL COMMERCIALS.
--Quote, "During most sporting events, people will get up and use the restroom during the commercials and not have any problem. However, most of the time, the commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl" . . . so people refuse to miss them.
--By holding it in too long, you put yourself at a higher risk of a bladder infection.
Whether you're single or taken, here's woman-to-woman advice for getting through the most-hyped holiday of the year....hope this helps!
"Since he can't read your mind, let your partner know exactly what gift would make your heart sing. Just send him a website link. You both win: You'll be thrilled and he gets the applause." —Alanis Morissette
" Cook for him. Preparing a special meal is like foreplay, and feeding someone is an act of love. Even better, cook together." —Gail Simmons, judge on Top Chef: Just Desserts and author of Talking With My Mouth Full
"If you're single, watch a movie like Dirty Dancing or Sleepless in Seattle and drink plenty of red wine. If you're in a relationship, don't expect the most romantic night of your life. When he does something really sweet, you'll appreciate it more." —Amy Lee, lead singer of Evanescence
" Buy your own chocolate! But not from the drugstore — go someplace decadent like Godiva and spend $30 on a box of the good stuff. It's so luxe to treat yourself." —Jennifer Weiner, author of Good in Bed and In Her Shoes
" Drink a really good bottle of pink champagne. As a single woman, it will help make all those hand-holding couples appear almost as cute as they think they are. If you're hitched, it will help you forget that your husband canceled your dinner plans to work late." —Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada and Last Night at Chateau Marmont
"Make someone's day by sending an anonymous Valentine. Mail it to a friend, cousin, or neighbor — anyone who could use a little love, which is most everyone!" —Melissa Bank, author of The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing
I'll buy this: SOFIA VERGARA tops AskMen.com's list of the 99 Most Desirable Women of 2012.
--She's followed by "Sports Illustrated"modelKATE UPTON, ROONEY MARA from "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", and MIRANDA KERR.
--Last year, Sofia finished THIRD, behind MILA KUNIS and BLAKE LIVELY.
--Two surprisingly poor performers this year were MEGAN FOX, who came in 96th . . . and PIPPA MIDDLETON, who finished 98th.
--Pippa's sister KATE crushed her at #11.
--Despite her personal problems, DEMI MOORE managed to rank 80th . . . and nailing GEORGE CLOONEY was enough to get STACY KEIBLER to #45.
--Oh, and thankfully, this year we don't have to compare the finishes of JENNIFER ANISTON and ANGELINA JOLIE and discuss how it affects them, us and the fate of the universe as we know it. Neither one of them made this year's list.
