Comedy Central, the network which, thanks to “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” has hijacked the news and made it relevant, entertaining, and funny, has greenlighted a TV version of the cult online series “Midwest Teen Sex Show.” Despite its title, the show is hardly hardcore and offers valuable sex education information for teens and young adults via funny sketches about birth control, oral sex, porn, and STDs. It may seem odd that a comedy network is taking up the task of educating teens about sex, but many states do not offer comprehensive sex education. The network has been successful with bringing the news to teens and young adults, so I don’t have a doubt that their joint effort with the “Midwest Teen Sex Show” will rock, too.

Brett and Kate McKay are the husband/wife team behind the Art of Manliness, which seeks to help men “be better husbands, better fathers, and better men.” Brett was turned off by traditional men’s magazines like Men’s Health because they were filled with articles about sex and six-pack abs. “Was this all there was to being a man?” he asks.
It should come as no surprise that Brett has a big problem with porn. After all, it’s filled with men with six-pack abs having sex. In “The Problem with Porn,” he warns men that porn “saps your manliness” and lists five reasons why. Our Mind of Man has shared his perspective on guys and porn, and when I IM’d him about the article, he wrote back, “Porn is sexy. Too much porn is bad. Wine is yummy. Too much is bad.” But if porn saps a guy’s manliness, what does it do to women? Keep reading »
Kristin Cavallari is back! This morning, we learned that the “Laguna Beach” mean girl will be replacing Lauren Conrad as the star of “The Hills.” Dang, we knew her media disappearance over the past few years was too good to be true. The 22-year-old will show up on the May 31st season finale of “The Hills” where she’ll catch the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding. Geez, I’d rather catch a live grenade. Keep reading »
After the whole Craigslist Killer thing, everyone’s fave website has been getting serious heat to regulate the ads on their site. So yesterday, the company announced it was nixing the “erotic services” section, and morphing it into “adult services.” The diff? The company will now review each post before it goes live. How they’ll do that with a staff of 28 people has yet to be clarified. For kicks, let’s compare and contrast the two sections. Just like in high school English class. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
The crap has hit the fan for Jon and Kate Gosselin of TLC’s family lovefest, “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” Not only were they totally overshadowed by OctoMom, who popped eight out in one swoop, but now rumors are swirling that Kate has been getting down and dirty with the family bodyguard, Steve Neild. Meanwhile, Jon’s still under fire for his alleged affair with local school teacher Deanna Hummel. After the jump, a side-by-side comparison of all the players in this twisted web. Keep reading »
Kate on “Lost” is one of the most vile female characters on TV. She’s also proof that the general consensus is that men love the chase and are most attracted to women who are a challenge, drive them crazy, and will cause so much drama that she overshadows the smart, kind, and loyal woman standing next to her.
The producers have tried to make Kate interesting, by writing her first as an independent bad girl who’s evolved into a nurturing mother figure, but ultimately, she is a cliche. She’s a tease, who tempts both the Good Guy (Jack, the doctor) and the Bad Boy (Sawyer, the con artist) with her attention grabbing antics, bouncing between both like a ping pong ball who just can’t decide who she really loves. Yawn. She’s also a pain in the ass. She screws up plans, takes matters into her own hands when she really shouldn’t, and acts high and mighty. She is easily the most annoying female character on TV since Kimmie Gibbler and she’s also “Lost”‘s biggest flaw. You can quote me on that. [Note: There are spoilers about "Lost"'s season finale, after the jump.] Keep reading »

We were psyched to learn that L’Oreal hired “Slumdog Millionaire”‘s Freida Pinto as its latest spokesperson. This is the first shot from the upcoming ad campaign. She looks … lighter. L’Oreal, have you learned nothing from the Beyonce debacle? [via Daily Mail U.K.]
Update: L’Oreal sent us this statement:
“L’Oréal Paris is thrilled to have Freida Pinto as a new spokesperson. The photo that accompanied our announcement is an existing publicity photo of Freida provided to L’Oréal by her management as we have yet to begin our initial project with her (or commenced any photography to date.) We are looking forward to working with Freida on her first L’Oreal campaign, which will take place in the near future.”
