And they’re not taking any chances.
Something a little different today! A fabulous new lifestyle blog written by the most amazing young woman!
Who happens to be my daughter.
Longtime readers of Hooking Up Smart know that I began the blog to help my 19 year-old daughter navigate the wild and crazy sexual marketplace that is college hookup culture. That was five years ago, and today she’s an independent and thriving young woman. She makes a great Exhibit A for the advice I dispense here, if I do say so myself.
So the moment has arrived when I no longer need to protect her privacy by referring to her as Little Miss HUS and keeping her identity hidden. She is Claire.
Beacon Street Chic covers style, food, DIY, decor and entertaining. It’s also a love letter to Boston, which serves as the beautiful backdrop. I’m wowed by what Claire has managed to put together in only one week of posting – you will be too.

Some of the funniest comments are from males, like the guy who confesses to junk funk, ew.
Here are some of the top suggestions:
Wear clean underwear if you expect sex. Dear gods, please.
Stop spraying cologne on jeans that haven’t been washed for a month.
I’m posted up in bed today with a bad cold – finally I get to do the blogger thing of staying in PJs all day! Anyway, yesterday while getting my hair cut I browsed through Glamour and found one very interesting tidbit from their annual sex survey of 2,600 single men and women. Don’t take it too seriously – you know how these magazines are – but I found this interesting:
Who says they’re not getting enough?
48% of women
56% of men
Does any of this surprise you?
I’m surprised the numbers are as close as they are. My own sense is that both sexes share the same struggles and complaints. However, the male responses are more passive and indistinct, which is odd given their allegedly higher sex drive.
