Louisiana Lingerie Store Is Now Accepting Food Stamps For Edible Underwear

Kiss My Lingerie, a specialty adult shop in Gonzales, Louisiana, has posted a sign on it’s door indicating that it accepts most credit cards and EBT cards, which is federal-issued card for welfare and food stamps. The owner of the store says she began accepting EBT cards, better known as Louisiana Purchase cards, eight months ago because she didn’t want to “discriminate against customers.”

An anonymous woman who works nearby the shop found this development very upsetting. “We were told anything could be purchased there, with the food stamp card. No child I know eats edible underwear,” she said. Keep reading »

Starring In “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” Is Bringing Up All Sorts Of “Homophobic Insecurities” For Neil Patrick Harris

Starring-In-'Hedwig-And-The-Angry-Inch'-Is-Bringing-Up-All-Sorts-Of-'Homophobic-Insecurities'-For-Neil-Patrick-Harris

“Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me. I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I’ve never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really. I’ve lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity — it’s why I like guys. I’m not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself.”

Neil Patrick Harris talks about starring in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway and much, much more in this Out Magazine cover interview. You can always count on NPH to say interesting and provocative things, whether it be that drinking pineapple juice makes him “feel tropical” and makes his “semen taste delicious,” or that playing a character who dresses in drag is triggering his internalized homophobia. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is one of my all-time favorite plays, and when it ran off-Broadway the first time, I saw it 11 times because it was just so gripping and multi-dimensional for a one-man musical. I agree with creator James Cameron Mitchell, NPH is the ideal person to play the role. I can’t wait to see it. [Out]

Linda, honey, listen, listen, listen!

I think we can all agree that this future lawyer deserves a cupcake for his debate efforts, not a “pow pow” in his butt. Seriously, I would hire him. He had me at “OK, Linda, honey, look at this.” How could you say no to that? [Daily Picks & Flicks]

Macklemore Doesn’t Want Women To Have To Pee & Poop On Messy Toilet Seats Anymore

Macklemore feels so connected to the plight of women — having to pee and poop on toilet seats soiled by slovenly men — that he wrote an instructional, reggae style rap about how dudes can have better aim in the bathroom. His Instagram video, set against the backdrop of a toilet full of his pee, goes out all “frat bro[s] too hammered to handle [their] danglers and all the “shitty dads” fucking up “the deuce sesh” for the rest of us.

Is No Salad Safe? Woman Finds A Lizard In Her Lunch

Since hearing about the woman who found a frog in her Pret A Manger salad, I always inspect my greenery thoroughly before eating. But I’m starting to think that no salad is safe now that another woman has come forward claiming that she found a lizard arm and leg in her lunch at yet another NYC “fresh food” chain.

“After a few bites, I look down at my fork, and think, oh, ‘Is that a piece of asparagus?’And then I saw that it had eyes, and an arm.” Robin Sandusky said of her Guy and Gallard salad, which was delivered to her office from the location RIGHT NEAR FRISKY HQ. Um, I have eaten there before. Keep reading »

The 10 Absolute Worst Things I’ve Done For Money

It’s completely normal and natural to complain about your job, even to hate it at times. When you spend 40+ hours a week doing anything, it doesn’t matter what, you’re going to have your own special brand of grievances — from the fact that your boss wants you to fax every email she receives while she’s on vacation to the baby opossum infestation in your classroom. Yep, I have experienced both. It’s normal to be filled with murderous rage about these things. (If those feelings are persistent and pervasive,I suggest you look for a new job.)

The key to being content at your job, I’ve found, is to constantly remind yourself of all the much worse things you can be doing to earn your living. Whenever I feel myself about to go off the rails over something stupid, I simply remind myself that it’s BTCDD, short for Better Than Changing Dog Diapers. This is something I’ve done for pay. And seriously, it was the most awful/degrading/depressing/disgusting way to earn $12 an hour. I’ve had a million odd jobs and changed careers three time, so that’s saying A LOT. As far as I’m concerned, there is no worse fate than taking a velcro nappy off a pug, and replacing its poopy sanitary napkin insert with a fresh one. To put all of our job annoyances in perspective, here are some more of the the most awful things I’ve done for money… Keep reading »

Coming Soon To Your TV: Couples Having Sex In A Box

Leave it to the Brits to come up with the most out-of-the-box (well, actually, in-the-box) concept for a reality TV show. And leave it to the Americans to steal the idea. WE  has announced that it will produce its own version of the British show, “Sex Box.” It’s just what it sounds like. Couples who are having relationship issues go inside a soundproof box, have sex and discuss it immediately after with a panel of sexperts (including the great Dan Savage). Keep reading »

She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside.”  Keep reading »

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]
