Portrait Of A Fartist As A Young Man

If you read Dan Savage’s column or listen to his podcast, you know that pretty much any kind of fetish you could imagine exists. Armpits, nostrils, muddy shoes. You name it and someone, somewhere gets off on it. Some even find it in their loins to get sexually aroused by things most of us consider…

10 Things We Do Every Damn Time We Go To Sephora (Illustrated by GIFs)

Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover.

Love It Or Leave It: Tilda Swinton’s Technicolor Dream Coat

Tilda Swinton is not a mere mortal. You think she’d be caught dead in a regular trench coat or something? No way. That’s why we’re totally not surprised she wore this Valentino Couture coat to a press conference for her new movie, “Snowpiercer.” On the one hand, the colors and fabric look incredible. On the…

Pregnant Women Really Do Not Belong In Public, Turkish Leader Sensibly Points Out

You know what is just the worst? When pregnant ladies go out in public. Yeah, their selfless maternal giving and their miracle of life — it is really not something other people should have to watch. Please, shield us from the inhumanity.

“Leftover Swap” App Lets You Share Your Cold Pizza With Strangers

Imagine opening your fridge to find a couple boxes of chow mein from last night, but not much else (you probably don’t have to try too hard to conjure up this scenario, huh?). The only problem is you don’t feel like chow mein, so you snap a quick photo of last night’s noodles, post it…

Style Stealer: Kylie Minogue’s Perfect Portofino Look

Singer and adorable sprite Kylie Minogue was spotted strutting around Portofino, Italy, in this Sophia Loren-esque look. We’re pretty sure she’s carrying around a $500 Alexander McQueen scarf, which is a tad outside our budget, but we’ve found what we think will make a mighty fine comparable look, ticket to Italy not included, sorry.

The “Perfect Woman” Doesn’t Smoke, Drink, Gossip Or Curse, According To Vanity Fair Poll

A new Vanity Fair/”60 Minutes” poll surveyed American adults about the qualities they look for in an ideal woman. And, by George, we’ve got one: she’s a “bold and experienced” “good mother” who hates the movie “Fatal Attraction,” doesn’t smoke, and is a doctor. But don’t feel bad if that doesn’t describe you … because it…

Frisky Rant: I Will Love My Dog Forever, Even After I Have Kids, Thanks

The first few months that I had my dog Lucca were rough. I adored her, make no mistake, but training a two-month-old puppy is no joke. I would set my alarm for the middle of the night so I could walk her, as her tiny bladder wasn’t yet prepared to hold it all night. And while I…

How Do We Feel About Marilyn Monroe Shilling For A Hair Spray Company?

Affordable haircare brand Sexy Hair just unveiled its fall ad campaign, and it turns out the new face of the company isn’t exactly new. It’s Marilyn Monroe. Sexy Hair purchased the rights to images and quotes from Monroe’s estate to create ads for its Spray & Play hairspray, which Monroe herself obviously never used (a…

Introducing Trainer Trials!

Working out has never really been my thing. I’ve belonged to a few gyms (some of which I never frequented, not even once), I’ve taking a spinning class here and there, I went on a brief — very brief — Bikram yoga kick and then blamed quitting on “the smell.” Nothing has ever stuck. Sometimes I throw…

We Can Blame Fifty Shades Of Grey For The Rise In Handcuff-Related Injuries

Further fodder for my irrational dislike of Fifty Shades of Grey: since its release, London firefighters suspect the erotic series is to blame for the increase in handcuff-related emergencies. Since 2010, the London Fire Brigade have come to the aid of 79 people trapped in handcuffs and one man with his penis stuck in the…

This past weekend, the very pregnant Fergie Duhamel had her “gay-by” shower at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. And, if you’re like us, you probably have no idea what that means. Us Weekly reported that it was thrown by her “gay BFFs.” Not sure why they can’t just be “BFFs” who also happen to be…

True Story: I Went From Unorgasmic To Squirting Overnight

“Your orgasm is your problem,” my ex-husband once said to me.

I frowned at his suggestion and two days later, some books appeared on my night table: I Love Female Orgasm and The Elusive Orgasm. I resentfully cracked one open and it seemed like a lot of trite stuff about the importance of…
