Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

Bobby Flay Receives Star On The Walk Of Fame While “Cheater” Banner Flies Overhead

Dr. Ruth Says Women Can’t Refuse Sex If The Man Has A “Very Aroused, Strong Erection”

Ohhhhh, Dr. Ruth. I know Dr. Ruth Westheimer, at nearly 87, is what we can safely consider a senior citizen and should thus, maybe, be given a pass for having antiquated opinions about sex, gender and consent.
