First Time For Everything: Sex On The Beach And Other Unlikely Places

Everybody’s talking about British psychoanalyst Brett Kahr’s meaty new tome, Who’s Been Sleeping in Your Head?, based on the largest study of sexual fantasies ever undertaken. Not surprisingly, sex in public ranks high up there. This very important research prompted me to take an oh-so-romantic walk down memory lane to reflect on what were the…

Fashion Slideshow: Transition Scarves

Scarves are obviously a necessity during winter, when the temperatures drop to unbearable and every inch of skin needs to be covered. But scarves are also big for fall — called “transition” scarves, these are made of thin fabric, often colorful combinations, and are a little on the boho side. Perfect for when the weather…

Michelle Obama’s DNC Style FOUND!

Not that style and politics should mix, and we certainly don’t think a candidate or a candidate’s spouse should be criticized for lacking style, but Catherine and I have both been bowled over by Michelle Obama’s nose for fashion over the course of the campaign. And never more so as when we both came into…

The Most Beautiful Wedding Gift In The World

There’s a part of me that sometimes gets a little cynical — it doesn’t help when the Guys On Our IM make me want to re-question my sexuality — but then I hear a little story like the one I’m about to tell, and my heart melts, I hear birds twittering, and a rainbow suddenly…

The Weekend Hotness: Johnny Depp, Rock Star

Before Johnny Depp was an Oscar-nominated actor and honorary Frenchie, he was in a band called The Kids. He reunited with the band last night at a benefit concert and totally rocks a sweaty t-shirt with the best of them.

Feature: Leave It To My Beaver

I’ve always been a late bloomer, so it wasn’t until my late ’20s that it occurred to me to groom my somewhat pronounced Black Irish eyebrows. And it was only natural that my carpet was mostly natural; I did minimal trimming to reign in my coordinating pronounced downtown region. I believe SNL’s Amy Poehler o…

How To Dump Your Summer Fling

It’s become my understanding that “sex on the beach” is a cliché that leads to sand in bad places. However, sex and beach are both words that bring to mind the ultimate summer fling. Scantily clad bodies, sun, surf, outdoor bars, gleaming tans, it all makes for a lovely little fantasy. Unfortunately, fantasies often come…

Love It Or Leave It: Faux Leather Leggings

Leggings are great for working out, lounging around, throwing on, or for pairing with an outfit that was a once cute dress but is now too short. The greatness of leggings, is not what I’m debating here. It’s what’s spawning from these tight favorites that has me worried. Mainly, what are these faux leather, almost

Crave: Anna Goberson’s “The Luxe”

Call us suckers for cheesy chick lit. This historical fiction “teen” novel is about as appropriate for 13-year olds as Gossip Girl — and just like the hit TV show, it’s the must-read book series for 20-somethings. This is the first book in the series, about filthy rich society families in the early 1900’s. Trust…

The Daily Hotness: Bryan Greenberg

I totally did a double-take when I saw Bryan Greenberg in the Obama/Will.I.Am “Yes, We Can” video (watch it, after the jump). While I may have missed him originally on One Tree Hill and October Road, he fully caught my attention as Uma Thurman’s way-younger beau in Prime. And he was so effing adorable trying…

Beauty How To: Vampy Red Lips & Nails

I remember watching “Dynasty” in the ’80s and thinking that Krystle and Alexis Carrington were so fantastically glam. Their glitzy, sequined dresses, shellacked hair, long, red talons and crimson lips were just IT, you know? If I saw those cats on TV today, however, I’d probably mistake them for two campy transvestites and wonder why…

Real Chick Lit: “The Smart Girl’s Guide To Getting Even”

After J. broke up with me my senior year in high school, I was pissed. Livid. Just a few weeks earlier, he told me he loved me, we went to prom and all was glorious in the world. What the heck? After a few weeks of having an intimate rebound relationship with a box of…

Is Sex Addiction Real?

All across the Internet, headlines are hollering: “David Duchovny: SEX ADDICT!” According to Duchovny’s camp, the actor checked himself into rehab for sex addiction this week. Some say the shocker is nothing more than a publicity stunt, designed to promote the September 28th premiere of the second season of Showtime’s “Californication,” in which he star…
