Photographer and father of two, Hector Cruz, believes that dads should know just as much about latching, pumping, mastitis and nipple cream as new mothers do. That’s why he founded Project Breastfeeding, an organization whose mission is to destigmatize public breastfeeding, educate men about what a vital role they play, and empower and support women.

We’ve heard about the harrowing statistics of the single woman to man ratio in NYC and most of us have experienced it in action first hand. Absolute losers seemingly have a hundreds of women to choose from while the most awesome women you’ve ever met inexplicably can’t meet anyone. [SO TRUE. -- Amelia] Although this is billed as a New York problem, it’s a problem in many cities.
A dating site, The Dating Ring, believes they have found a simple solution to the single man drought in Big Apple: outsource the women of NYC to San Francisco where available men are bountiful. Keep reading »
Everything Ryan Gosling touches seems to turn into unicorn farts and I’m sure it will be no different with his directorial debut of the new fantasy film, “How To Catch A Monster.” To make sure that the film is a success, the Gos went the extra mile and hired a dream analyst to work with his actors. According to Saoirse Ronan, who stars in the film, a woman named Greta had her and the rest of the cast, which includes Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Matt Smith, write a letter to their inner selves each night to reveal information about their characters which they would then act out in rehearsals. Ronan explained the process to Vulture:
“We would come in the next day to discuss our dreams with each other, and act them out, I’d tell Greta, ‘Listen, I don’t know what this is, but I was doing this last night, and then this person popped up [in my dream]‘ and she’d make sense out of it. And that was our rehearsal…It made us become very close…It was a very new method for me, because all of a sudden, Ryan was encouraging us to incorporate our own personalities into our characters, how you feel about things, what your anxieties are, and things like that.”

In a move I can only call brilliant, Starz Entertainment Group art director Suzanne Heintz shunned the traditional marriage and family life in favor of something far more unconventional. For the last 14 years, Heintz has been living with her strong but silent husband Chauncey and her never-rebellious teenage daughter Mary Margaret as part of an art project she calls “Life Once Removed.”
We’ve all been there: being needled by friends to “put yourself out there,” being pressured by family members to “settle down and have kids.” Enduring the same indignities, Heintz was thinking about her single life, walking past a retail liquidation store that sold mannequins when she said she realized, “I can buy a family!” And she’s been photographing their life together ever since — traveling all over the world with her family of “mute quadriplegics” and loving every minute of it. If that’s not unconventional enough for you, Heintz also has a real, live-in boyfriend of seven years, but has no interest in marrying him. Yet, she plans to renew her vows with Chauncey this June in front of friends, family and mannequins. Keep reading »
Earlier this week, teachers on Reddit revealed some of the craziest misconceptions students have about sex. We can’t blame them for thinking that Skittles are a perfectly acceptable form of birth control, we can only blame the adults who’ve left them woefully uniformed.
Well, according to a new survey, they’re not gonna find much reliable information from adults either. An email poll conducted by Vouchercloud.net to find out how knowledgable Americans are about tech-related terms discovered that, sadly, 11 percent of the more than 2,000 participants thought that HTML (the code used to build websites) was a sexually transmitted infection. That’s about one in ten Americans who thinks you can contract HTML from unprotected sex. Keep reading »
“For me, the vagina is such an integral part of the body…We think the vagina is on the outside. I say grab a mirror and play along. Get in there…You’re supposed to treat it like the beautiful flower that is, the delicate flower that it is. And you’re supposed to nurture it in all the ways that it needs nurturing…[You should be] watering it. Fertilizing it. It needs nourishment. It’s hungry.”
Cameron Diaz shares more tips from The Body Book on “Chelsea Lately.” At least she’s not going on about her love of pubes anymore. But the “delicate flower” metaphor is a little twee for me. Vaginas need showers and sex, not water and fertilizer. It’s nice that she’s written a handy guide to understanding the female body, but I’m wondering who’s reading this and having, like, major revelations about her vagina? [ONTD]
Despite all of Lindsay Lohan’s countless fuck-ups, she still appears to be surrounded by entourage of sycophants. Everyone, that is, but Oprah Winfrey. Documentary filmmaker Amy Rice teamed up with OWN for a new docu-series that gives a peek behind the curtain of the troubled actress’ life.
“There’s nothing left in having a drink for me…There’s no party that I haven’t gone to, there’s no person that I haven’t hung out with,there’s no situation that, you know, I haven’t been exposed to,” Lilo crows in the trailer’s opening sequence, more like a 77-year-old than a 27-year-old.

BroApp, the android app created by two, 29-year-old Aussie bros Tom and James, is being billed as “a clever relationship wingman” that pre-programs and sends text messages to girlfriends so that guys “can spend more time with the Bros.” Because those extra two minutes of time spent lifting, gaming or hanging with the bros are absolutely CRUCIAL.

Teachers everywhere, hear this tale of porn-watching gone wrong and cower in fear. Why is it never a good idea to browse amputee porn just moments before your students arrive? Oh, because Murphy’s Law dictates that some way, somehow, the fornicating amputees will find their way onto the projector instead of your intended lesson plans and that before you even realize your grave mistake, one of your students will snap a photo and send it to the local newspaper.
