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 »

Revolutionary Machine Promises Orgasms At The Push Of A Button

When I say someone invented an orgasm machine, I’m not talking about the world’s most effective vibrator. I’m talking about a surgical implant designed to give a woman an orgasm at the push of a button. Creator, surgeon Stuart Meloy, says he came up with the idea for the cigarette-sized device by accident. “I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically. I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that.’” No, he did not start teaching husbands how to manipulate their wives spines to climax – he made a machine that would do it for them.

Jared Leto Questions The Sincerity Of Jennifer Lawrence’s Second Oscar Fall

“You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act.”

Jared Leto tells “Access Hollywood” what he really thought of Jennifer Lawrence’s second Oscar fall. I suspect he was joking, and YET, I kind of agree with him. While I don’t think her red carpet spill was fake by any means, I wouldn’t entirely rule out the idea that JLaw was open to falling and played it up a bit when she did. You know, because it went over so well last year. As a bonafide klutz, I understand the mechanics of these things. If you’re not accustomed to walking in heels and you’re not paying attention, you open yourself up to eating shit. But when you know other people will be watching, you focus every ounce of your energy on not biting it. That being said, I am still quite fond of her. There are worse things a person can do than overdramatize a moment of clumsiness. I’ve probably done it myself. [ABC]

Jessica Alba On Kissing Your Kids On The Lips: “People Allow Dogs To Lick At Their Mouths”

In a teaser for Jessica Alba’s Redbook cover interview, the magazine shared a “sneak peak” at a few of the star’s juiciest quotes. Spoiler alert: they’re not the least bit juicy.

In her interview, the actress tackles the hot-button issue of parent/child kissing. Jessica is passionate in her belief that parents should kiss their children on the mouth because “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths.”

While I’m not particularly offended by parents kissing their kids on the lips (except in the Stephanie Seymour kind of way, like when they’re adults), I’m not sure that “people allow dogs to lick at their mouths” really sells me on the whole thing. Because … are you French kissing your kids or is this just a mwah on the mouth. There is a difference. The difference is TONGUE. Keep reading »

Unsanitary App Of The Day: Lick This Lets You Practice Oral Sex On Your iPhone Screen

A sex new app called Lick This allows users to engage in interactive exercises that supposedly train your tongue for pleasure. I know what you’re thinking: Great idea, but how is that possible without actually licking my iPhone screen? Answer: it’s not. You are meant to flick a light switch, move a zipper up and down, solve a maze, crank a handle and  ring a doorbell with your tongue ON YOUR GERM-INFESTED SCREEN. And then you want to put that dirty mouth in some unlucky person’s pants? I think not.  Although the app’s creators suggest that you wrap your phone in plastic before you get down to business, we know that people are about as likely to do that as they are to use a dental dam.
