  • This dater got so fed up with being rejected for unknown reasons that she started conducting dating exit interviews so she could get some constructive criticism. [xoJane]
  • We already knew this, but a new study proves that free birth control does not turn people into tramps. [Your Tango]
  • Some people are not happy with the “average” Barbie doll, Lammily, because she would have too many fat rolls in real life. Barbie just can’t win. [Newser]

This Is Their First Kiss

We’ve all had those awful first kisses that make us want to sterilize our mouths and swear off human intimacy for a long while. But, for the most part, kissing is one of those activities that is beautiful and intimate by nature, even if you barely know the person you’re snogging. In “First Kiss” a short film directed by Tatia Pillieva, we get to play fly on the wall for 20 complete strangers’ first kisses.

The preceding interchanges are incredibly awkward, as is to be expected, but once the couples get over the weirdness and lock lips, Whoa. The kisses range from really sweet and intimate to sexy and passionate. It’s just like real life, only without the cocktails and conversation part. Who ever thought watching strangers kiss could be so life affirming? [Digg]

Update: As much as we wanted to believe these were strangers kissing because their hearts yearned to connect, it’s actually an advertisement for Wren’s Fall 2014 clothing line. And many of those beautiful smoochers are professional actors and models. Womp, womp. [Slate]

8 Of The Most Unsavory Celebrity Neck Beards

Depending on the woman you ask, beards are widely considered attractive. But whether you or not you go buckwild for a man with facial hair, I think we can all agree that beards that grow below the chin are not sexy, especially when they’ve been given free reign to roam wild on an otherwise attractive man’s neck.

Daniel Radcliffe is a wonderful actor and a lover of pubic hair. I want to return the favor by supporting his hair wherever it may grow, but alas, I cannot ignore his hideous neck beard. Someone, please shave it. Please. Click through to see more celebrity men who’ve let their neck overgrowth get out-of-control. [DListed]

The "Tranny Awards" Will Now Be Known As 'Transgender Erotica Awards" (Because They Were Offending Themselves)

With outspoken advocates in the spotlight like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox, the transgender community is finally making some positive headway when it comes to fighting discrimination and ignorance with the public at large and within the  community After five year of honoring transgender adults in the entertainment industry at the annual “Tranny Awards,” the celebratory event has decided to change its name to the ‘Transgender Erotica Awards’ (T.E.A.) because, let’s be honest, “tranny” is a dehumanizing slur. Explains the event creator, Steven Grooby:

“When we named the show the ‘Tranny Awards’ in 2007 the climate was different and the usage of the word ‘tranny’ was appropriate as a catchy title in an online porn event… As we aim to be inclusive of all areas of transgender erotica and are looking to broaden the appeal of the show to mainstream media, we believed it was time to re-brand the event…I’d like to thank the extended trans adult community for their input and feedback over the last few months. We will be producing a show that the whole transgender adult community can be proud of.”

Amen to that. [Nerve]

Wait, The Ice Cream Cleanse Is Real?

It sounds like one of those dreams you have where you’re mowing your way through a pint of ice cream and wake up and feel relieved that you didn’t just binge, only, it’s real. Kippy’s Ice Cream Shop, a vegan ice cream place in Los Angeles, has announced the first ever Ice Cream Cleanse. For $240, you get five pints of raw coconut-based ice cream in flavors like Orange Crème, Dark Chocolate with Himalayan Fire Salt and Superfood Ice Cream, meant to be consumed over four days. In addition to the ice cream, you are allowed to have organic, raw meals such as an avocado with mango and lemon juice, a salad or green juice if you’re starving. But really now, I wasn’t born yesterday. I’ve lived through Diet Tab and the cookie diet. How can 1,200 calories, 70 grams of fat and 125 grams of sugar a day be healthy for you? Keep reading »

Life After Dating: Cohabitating For The First Time In More Than A Decade

Life After Dating: Cohabitating For The First Time In More Than A Decade

So you’ve finally found The One (or at least The One For The Foreseeable Future) and you’ve committed to a serious relationship. Now what? In our weekly column, Life After Dating, women discuss the unique joys and challenges of coupledom.

When Jeff and I moved in together — after six months of dating — it was out of convenience. My roommates were two dudes, one of which powdered his balls in the bathroom and made fun of my underwear hang-drying in the laundry room. Jeff was a musician living with his bandmates. His place was basically the apartment equivalent of tour bus — a bunch of guys rotating from futon to couch. There was a lot of Pabst Blue Ribbon and not very much food in the fridge. We both wanted out. We wanted to escape our situations. We were 22. There were no long discussions about the future or what living together or breaking up would mean. There was mutual, “OK. Let’s do it.” A week later, we found a place a few blocks away and before we knew it, we were eating pizza off of our very own repurposed crate/ coffee table like a real adult couple. Keep reading »
