Ya know, there are some things in life that just aren’t meant to be understood. The duck-billed platypus. In-laws. Celery. How Charlie Sheen gets work. So trust me when I say, yes, absolutely, men are really that enthralled with those two pieces of female flesh. Read more

Ask The Astrosexologist: “Is Now The Right Time To Start A Romance With My Best Friend?”

My best friend and I live on opposite ends of the country. A year and a half ago we admitted there were intense feelings between us that we wanted to explore in the future.

He asks you out for Friday night, which appears to be a good sign as it’s one of the weekend evenings. He takes your phone number and send… / May 30, 2010

Quotable: M.I.A. Isn’t Impressed With Lady Gaga

“With our video, we were really copying ‘Telephone’. Both our videos are road movies. We kill people, and they kill people. They start out in a prison, and we start out in a squat, hunting people down. I can’t talk about Gaga anymore. All I’ll say is, it’s upsetting when babies say ga-ga now. It…

Which Health Foods Are Bad For You?

Healthy foods, like reality show stars, tend to be both high-maintenance and tasteless. As lazy and spoiled people, we try to find any shortcuts we can to eating healthy without having to prepare fresh food or eat tofu.

Mom Hijacks Her Son’s Facebook Account

I’ve had my MySpace account hijacked by some spammer who proceeded to flood my friends’ inboxes with soft corn porn ads. Evil! But you know who I would never expect to hijack one of my accounts—my mom. That is not the case for 17-year-old Lane Hill. He had been living with his grandparents for five…

This “Real Housewives Of New York City” Parody Is Spot-On

Why Do Men Watch Porn?

Yesterday a post on Psychology Today caught our eye: “Why Men Use Porn (And How to Get Them to Stop).”

Quotable: Tom Cruise Was Broke When He Got His Big Break

“The audition [for ‘Taps’] was in New York. I said one line. That was it. I had long hair at the time, so they said, ‘Hold up your hair.’ Then ‘Thank you.’ I don’t know why, but… I thought I’d get it. It wasn’t arrogance. I had a quarter in my pocket — and that…

The Geriatric Pink Panther Is The Purrrfect Retirement Activity

Ever wonder what’s really going on inside the senior center? Here I was assuming that old folks were sitting around playing bridge and painting water colors, but never did I imagine a geriatric performance of “The Pink Panther.” This spirited group of old folks sing and play the “The Pink Panther” theme song…
