We all have different preferences when it comes to listening to music at work. Maybe you play Beyoncé's Lemonade on repeat, or perhaps you're more inclined to listen to Mozart's entire discography. You may even find solace in the Baby Shark remix (hey, no judgment here). But the playlists we bob our heads to at work don't always put us in the zone. Imagine trying to focus on the task at hand while silently singing along to Formation? Yeah, it's practically impossible. SEE ALSO: Best wireless...

Whatever you do, don't look away.  Stacey Spikes, the co-founder of the ongoing psychological experiment known as MoviePass, has a new offer he's sure you can't refuse: absolutely free movie tickets.  All he needs from you in exchange is whatever shred of self respect you've somehow managed to hold onto as you shuffle through this modern hellscape.  Announced via Kickstarter, Spike's new movie-related scheme comes across as even more harebrained than its MoviePass precursor.

Amazon's Alexa voice assistant is a lot of different things at once. To some people, it's a useful tool that makes daily household life significantly more convenient.  To others, it's a bit invasive and creepy to have something listening to all of your conversations at home.  One thing most people can probably agree on is that Alexa is weird. A voice-powered home assistant with a huge number of community-made skills you can download for it is bound to get a little strange at times.  We've...

Sexting gets a bad rep. But we shouldn't confuse the sins of an unsolicited dick pic with the gift of an enthusiastically consensual dick pic. Getting horny with your partner over text isn't just great foreplay. For many it can also act as an ideal space for establishing enthusiastic consent, exploring each other's sexual fantasies, kinks, boundaries, and limitations. In the age of #MeToo, we're finally talking about how to change our sexual culture to ensure everyone's having a great time...
