Is It The Right Time To Have That Convo With Your S.O.?

I believe this “Should you bring it up?” flow chart offers some sound advice. There are appropriate times and inappropriate times for that serious convo with your S.O. Hint: not when you’re drunk or tired. Those tend to turn into arguments. I’m a big fan of serious talks over breakfast … after the coffee ha…

Raquel Welch On Pole Dancers, Brazilian Waxes & Feminism

“I guess you could call [my views on sex and relationships] conservative. I think there is a lost art to being a woman. … I have this romantic part to my nature and maybe that’s why I find it difficult when I see this kind of vulgar approach to women today. I think there’s too…

Guy Talk: How To Check Out Women

It’s been over 30 years, but I still remember the day Jenny Talbot caught me staring at her boobs.

Jenny and I sat next to each other in a couple of classes. We weren’t exactly friends, but friendly; she helped me in math, I helped her in social studies. One day, Jenny and I…

Keep Calm And Panda On

“Keep calm and carry on” was a morale-raising British slogan during World War II that’s now stamped on everything from posters to cushions to chocolate bars. But if there’s one thing we love more than kitsch, it’s pandas! An Etsy seller named Steppie has printed a sweet panda bear’s face on American Apparel Ts and…

Was Your Dad An Original Hipster?

A few weeks ago, my brother and I were looking at old family pictures and we came across a photo of my dad in the ’70s. He was wearing giant Terry Richardson-style glasses, short shorts, some kind of subversive message T-shirt, and rocking a full beard. We looked at each other, and I whispered, “Oh…

Oh No, There’s A British “Jersey Shore” — It’s Called “Geordie Shore”

American culture is spreading throughout the world … spreading like herpes. Behold, a British version of “Jersey Shore” on MTV UK: “Geordie Shore” stars thickly accented lads and lasses Jay, Vicky, Gary, Charlotte-Letitia, James, Sophie, Greg and Holly — who says she is “fierce, flirty and I’ve got double Fs!” — in the…

Beauty Gross Out Time: What Nasty Thing Do You Do?

Yesterday, in preparation of my first bare-legs day since last fall, I shaved my legs. I don’t like body hair so I shave my legs even in the winter. But yesterday, as I was about to de-fuzz the first strip of leg, I realized that I haven’t changed my razor in more than a year.

Alex Pettyfer Has A Bad Attitude, A “Thank You” Tattoo Over His Penis

His last name may sound a lot like “petit four,” but “Beastly” and “I Am Number Four” star Alex Pettyfer is far from sweet and sugary on the inside. First there were the rumors of vicious phone threats he made toward ex Dianna Agron. And his new interview in VMAN magazine doesn’t do much for…

Quickies: Katie Holmes Isn’t A Drug Addict After All & Check Out Jon Hamm Looking Hawt!

Star magazine apologized to Katie Holmes for saying she uses drugs in a January issue with the headline “Katie Drug Shocker!” (The drugs Katie supposedly “uses”? Endorphins she gets from a reading by a Scientology e-meter. Yeah, lame.) The mag will make “substantial donation” to a charity of Katie’s choice “for any harm we may…

Today’s Lady News: Kansas Wants To Defund Planned Parenthood

Kansas’ proposed state budget aims to remove $300K in federal funding away from family planning services at Planned Parenthood and redirect them to clinics elsewhere — all because Planned Parenthood clinics provide abortions. Planned Parenthood also provides Pap smears, contraceptives, STD testing, and other medical services for women — Low-income women would be most impacted…

“Piranha 3DD” Is Coming For You

I did indeed see Jerry O’Connell get his manhood bitten off on the waters of Lake Havasu in “Piranha 3D.” Thank you to Amelia for convincing me to go. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As I watched this piece of highbrow film magic, I suspected that a sequel was probable. But is it possible to to…

Win Gap’s Royal Discount

Prince William and Kate Middleton might have royal connections, but that hasn’t stopped them from dressing like common folk. Both William and Kate have been keeping their looks casual in the days leading up to their wedding.

Is This Military-Themed Budweiser Ad Gay? Or Just, You Know, Friendly?

Is this military-themed Budweiser commercial, um, gay? I’m guessing you don’t ask and you don’t tell, either. With so many beer commercials opting for the “real men aren’t gay! GRR! Eat some raw meat!” tactic, I can help but wonder whether it means something when two men are portrayed lovingly. As the gay…

Natalie Portman‘s dad has babies on the brain, and not just because his daughter is in the final trimester of her pregnancy.
