So this is creepy. Etsy seller Manllow has concocted the ultimate lonely “Twilight” fan’s companion — life-size body pillows that are “half man half pillow.” Edward and Jacob’s faces have been screen-printed over soft, snuggly pillow bodies for your cuddling pleasure! Unfortunately, the pillows are anatomically incorrect in their downstairs parts, like horrible Muppets. But Edward could watch you sleep, or Jacob could keep you warm and safe all night long, and the eternal war between vampires and werewolves could finally end.
At least Manllow has a healthy sense of humor, as she demonstrated when the internet exploded in response to these horrible Frankenpillow creations. She calls them: “The greatest gift of all time. 105% creepy and 5% lovable.” Yipes. Keep reading »

I’m occasionally a bit of a procrastinator. According to the calendar on my office wall, it is December 2009, and I’ve still got to pick up vodka for New Year’s. But, fortunately for all of us, the powers that be at the New York City Sex Bloggers Calendar do not have this problem. They’ve got future sexiness on the brain, and they’re seeking centerfolds from anywhere in the country for 2011. For the past two years, they’ve been using the calendars to raise funds to promote healthy, positive sexuality, under the premise that sex is fun and awesome, and sexual freedom is a basic human right. In 2011, all the proceeds from the calendar will go to the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, an organization that advances the cause of sexual speech, education, and expression. They oppose abstinence-only curricula, the misuse and abuse of sex workers, and legislation that governs the bedroom. They also foster scientific study of human sexuality, positive body image, and artistic expression. All good stuff! Any cutie patootie — gay, straight, male, female, trans, queer — sex blogger of any ethnicity or size is invited to submit a photo. All in favor of nominating our own Simcha?!
