Marie Claire Writer Dons A Strap-On

In the November issue of Marie Claire, dating blogger Maura Kelly writes about a guy she dated briefly who confessed to enjoying “a kind of sex that people don’t usually associate with straight men.” Oh yes, Kelly’s man liked to take it from behind, courtesy of a strap-on attached to his female partner. (Like the one Madonna bought for her and Guy Ritchie in the photo at left!) He assured Kelly he wasn’t gay or bisexual, he just liked to be dominated. And Kelly complied, giving him what he wanted for the few months they dated. I found this whole story fascinating, as I’ve always, admittedly, been a little curious about what it would be like to be THAT dominant in bed. To be the one doing the actual penetrating, I suppose. Here’s how Kelly describes it:

As I moved my hips and did my thing, I felt strangely removed from the experience. The kinky deed seemed unsexual and anything but intimate — after all, my primary erogenous zone was covered up by a giant fake penis.

Huh. OK, so sounds like a bit of a dud. Is this something any of you have tried? Would you? Or does it sound like a complete and utter turn-off? [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

Zac Efron Gets The Hipster Stamp Of Approval

The dude version of hipster-y fashion mag Nylon has given teenybopper hottie Zac Efron their stamp of approval by putting him on the cover of the latest issue. I have been thinking for a while that Zac is Justin Timberlake 2.0 in that he is hot and multi-talented with Disney roots. Getting the cool stamp of approval — as Justin did from Pharrell and the Black Eyed Peas — is only further proof of that. OK, fine, I did watch “17 Again” this weekend. And I loved it. What of it?

Domestic Violence Jokes Just Write Themselves, Don’t They?

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To celebrate, former baseball player Marcus Giles beat up his wife, while a year ago, his brother Brian was arrested for long-term abuse of his wife. The sports blog Deadspin apparently thinks this is the right time to make a funny, writing in a post titled, “Alleged Domestic Violence Runs In The Family,” that Marcus’s abuse of his wife is “apparently an isolated incident, but Brian was always the better hitter.” Hardy.

Sperm: The Newest Anti-Aging Serum?!

I have this theory that there is a covert organization out there, run by men, that is devoted to finding scientific “evidence” that women should give blow jobs and, preferably, swallow. Their latest discovery? Human sperm may slow the aging process! That’s right, Botox addicts: According to the Telegraph, “spermidine, a compound that is found in sperm, slows aging processes and increases longevity in yeast, flies, worms and mice, as well as human blood cells, by protecting cells from damage.” Of course, what this really means is that maybe someday down the road scientists could possibly create a wonder pill that extends the human lifespan, but our boys at Asylum want women to believe that we should just start giving more head now. “In other words, science has just declared that the fountain of youth is in your pants. Adjust your seduction techniques accordingly.” Nice try, guys! [Telegraph via Asylum] Keep reading »

A Pillow For Lonely And Depressed People


If I were in the business of selling pillows that mold, adjust, and even “breathe” in tune with the person cuddling them, I think I would go for an upbeat message. “Having a pillow that is practically lifelike in its response is awesome and neato! Go out and get one and your life will instantly ROCK!” I would do this because it’s likely that anyone who would buy a pillow that has real doll-like robotic characteristics is probably a sad and lonely human being, and I would want them to feel good about their purchase. (Keep in mind, I am writing this from the perspective of an evil business person, not a compassionate human being.) However, the designer behind the Funktiontide pillow clearly feels the opposite.
