Isabella Rossellini Investigates Bug Love

While Isabella Rossellini may be known for her roles in Alias and Death Becomes Her, she’s now helping to answer the question people have been asking since the beginning of time — how do insects do it? Isabella’s short film series Green Porno will get to the bottom of this. Personally, we’re hoping the film delves into which insect has the best sex life — our guess is that spiders might have a tough time wrapping their…err, legs around it, with all of those appendages getting in the way. But check out these beetles doing it doggy style — sensual! Green Porno will be available on iTunes and streaming on sundance.org/festival beginning January 18. [Yahoo News]

Sugar Babies Can Finally Stop Worrying About Dating Middle-Income Guys

Yeah, we know it’s every guy’s fantasy to have a harem of his own à la Hugh Hefner’s Girls Next Door, but we didn’t realize there were droves actually attempting to make it happen. For a little more than a thousand measly bucks (measly in millionaire terms—I can barely pay my rent), rich guys can become certified sugar daddies on SeekingMillionaire.com. What a useful concept! Not only does it help guys find women who will put out for rich players, but it also makes the leeches feel safer since they know they can’t be deceived by guys pretending they’re loaded: “Most online dating sites are full of men claiming to be millionaires in order to attract responses from beautiful women,” one sugar baby said. “When a certified sugar daddy contacts me, I know he is a real millionaire.” Wow. Job security for gold diggers. [SeekingMillionaire.com] Keep reading »

Rubbers Go Global

A condom by any other name — prophylactic, jimmy hat, raincoat, love glove, Trojan — is still a condom. But aren’t nicknames more fun? Personally, we like “French letters,” a British term, coined around 1856, which is even in the dictionary, making it totally legit. (We don’t actually call them that. We have enough problems getting dates.) But now we might have to start calling them “Nepalese letters” because women in mountain villages over there have started mailing condoms to their husbands who are working overseas. You know, “Please don’t sleep around, honey, but if you’re going to, slip one of these on, you lying, cheating scumbag.” Keep reading »

Lipstick Does Its Part to Keep The Roads Safe

If your boyfriend’s a bad driver—hell, even if your cabbie seems to think he’s auditioning for future installment of The Fast and the Furious — just start talking about your glorious Cover Girl Continuous Color Lipstick in Mauvelicious. Or the new chairs Design Within Reach Chairs you’re lusting over. A study by German and Swedish researchers showed that men drove slower when they heard neutral or feminine words, rather than manly stuff like “beard” and “muscles.” Just don’t start talking to him about really girly stuff, like the black lace bra you’re wearing, because then he might drive right off the road.

Double Beds On Airplanes Can’t Possibly Be Meant For Sleeping

Joining the mile high club used to be a big deal. First, you both had to sneak past the flight attendants, then you had to contort yourselves into a disgusting 2-foot-square box with fluorescent lighting and a toilet, and finally you had to, once again, slip past the suspecting flight attendants who totally knew what was up. Well, Singapore Airlines has practically taken the fun out of this furtive endeavor now that they’ve added double beds to some of their planes. The only thing is, they’re asking passengers to keep their trousers on. Right…The suites aren’t soundproof, so just suppress yourself from screaming things like, “We have liftoff!” [Times UK] Keep reading »

Maybe We Pretend We Can’t Cook So We Won’t Have To

Daily Mail columnist Sam Holden is a bold man, declaring, “The only people who can actually cook on this planet are men, even the ones who only cook once a year when their wife or girlfriend is ill.” Surprisingly, he is married. And while we would dump his ass if we were his wife, she totally gets him back with her response: “So, boys, next time you are boring on about how you created the latest gastronomic masterpiece, and taking your wife to task about her shortcomings in the kitchen, don’t be surprised if she gently points out that the kitchen is not the only room in which performance counts.” Oh, snap.
