Is This Your $100 Million ATM Receipt?

One of my weird quirks (that I forgot to mention last week) is that I very, very, very rarely get a receipt when I take cash out of the ATM. (I do when I make deposits so that I have a record.) I don’t want to know my balance, even if I know I have…

A Woman’s Lot In Life Is To Constantly Replenish Her Panties

Like every other woman alive, I have a wakeup routine that hasn’t changed for years. Silence my alarm. Put on my glasses. Refresh the “Mail” tab on my iPad. Slide slippers on my feet. Shuffle over to one of my dressers. Peer into my panty drawer. Toss aside the pink leopard print thong that scream…

True, Gross Story: My Bikini Waxer Was A Double-Dipper

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of body hair. It’s also no secret that times are hard. So lately, I’ve been on quest to find a more affordable bikini waxer because it costs about $72 for a Brazilian wax and 20 percent tip at the spa I’ve been patronizing for the last three…

Coming Soon: A Hilary Clinton Porn Spoof?

No, no, no, no, no. The other week, we introduced you to Sammie Spades, the porn star who has been in such hits as “White Bubble Butts #4m” and who, back in the day, was an intern in Hillary Clinton’s Buffalo office. Sammie was lucky enough to snap a photo of herself with Hill that…

Michele Bachmann Doesn’t Call Herself A Feminist

I could not have been more annoyed when Sarah Palin called herself a “feminist.” It wasn’t because I think a hairy-legged, Diva Cup-loving separatist in Berkeley should get to decide what a feminist is. (I am quite sure she would take one look at my mani/pedi and send me back to the gallows for more…

Girl Talk: I Want My Boyfriend To Fantasize About Other Women

I read Eliza Jules’ essay “I Obsessively Monitor My Husband’s Lube Bottle” over at xoJane and was left with this question: Is a partner’s masturbation something we should worry about? The more I’ve thought about it, though, the more I’ve concluded that, for me, I’m at the very opposite end of the spectrum as Jule…
