Study: Women Who Are Ovulating Buy Sexier Clothing

Despite human evolution, our primal thoughts and instinctive behaviors are still — though subconsciously — with us.

New research from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management found that when women are ovulating, they unknowingly buy and dress in more sexy clothing in a survival of the fittest tactic to beat out other…

Andrew Garfield Will Not Use A Crass Pick-Up Line On You

“I’ve always kind of baulked at the concept of ‘the game.’ You have all these automaton men going into bars saying the same lines, kind of half-insulting a girl in the hope they’re going to sleep with them. It’s just so inappropriate and crass and it takes all the romance and mystery out of courtshi…

So That’s How It’s Done!

Like anyone with an inquisitive mind and too much time on her hands, I have a lot of questions about boners. The week is young and I’ve already got one answered. [via Shlooby Kitten]…

Jane Krakowski Is My Pregnancy Role Model

You know what’s annoying? When a friend gets pregnant and all of a sudden, all they can talk about is the number of toxins in industrial carpet and the ins and outs of breastfeeding. I mean, I respect that these are things they have to think about, but does it have to be the only…

Kim Kardashian Didn’t Think She Was Going To Look So Naked On Nude Magazine Cover

“Oh my God, I’m more naked that I was in Playboy. I’m so mad right now. [The magazine] promised I would be covered with artwork — you can see the nipples! The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen. I feel so taken advantage of … I’ve definitely learned my lesson.

Sex Mustard, Albino Lipstick, Genetic Shower: 18 Revolting Terms For Sperm

Last week, we read about a woman who claimed her yogurt sample tasted like semen. We haven’t touched yogurt since then and it may take us a while before we do. The best thing to cum, er, come out of that unfortunate semen story were some fun (read as revolting) descriptives for man juice found…

I Knew I Wasn’t Crazy; There Is A Preferred Toilet Paper Orientation

As we discussed a couple of weeks ago, toilet paper is amongst the top 10 argument triggers for couples. It sounds petty, but a roll of toilet paper facing the wrong direction is a personal call to arms for me. I did a little research and as it turns out, I am not just a…

PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl

You work that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables. The networks declined to air “Veggie Love” — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an “outtakes” video. Once agai…

How Do You Know You Really Like Someone?

One of the things I’ve been thinking about during this drinking/dating/sex sabbatical of mine is how you know you actually like someone. I’ve come to realize that in addition to being an extreme emotions junkie, I’m what Dr. Drew might call a “love-a-holic.” A motivating factor in my desire to sleep with someone is for…

I’m Secretly Excited To See “Never Say Never”

I thought I was immune to the charms of boy idol, Justin Bieber, and then I saw the trailer for his new movie “Never Say Never.” It’s like “8 Mile,” for the middle class ‘tween set. All it took was two 3-second clips of him drumming on a kitchen chair at the age of…

Why Are Politicians Attempting To Redefine Rape?

The “No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act” redefines “real” rape as only that which is “forcible” and has been co-sponsored by 173 mostly Republican legislators and was called a “top priority” by Speaker of the House John Boehner. Likely knowing that fully criminalizing abortion is impossible, politicians are going after the funding of abortions i…

Girl Talk: My Newfound Respect For Chivalry

My freshman year of college, I went on a date with a guy to a fancy restaurant in Manhattan. It was the kind of place with a white tablecloth, where a busboy scraped the crumbs off the table with a comb once your plates were removed and the maitre’d pulled out women’s chairs for them.

Hello, Superman: 5 Things You Should Know About Henry Cavill

Faster than a speeding bullet, British actor Henry Cavill swooped in and snagged the role of Superman (and his equally hot yet mortal alter-ego, Clark Kent) in the new film directed by Zack Snyder. This guy must have acting skills of kryptonite because he beat out both Joe Manganiello and Jon Hamm for the role.
