Fresh off the heels of a fraternity at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee fielding accusations that they drugged female guests with roofies, someone at Forbes.com actually decided to publish a blog post arguing “Drunk Female Guests Are The Gravest Threat To Fraternities” (cached here). It’s the kind of journalism moment that the Seth and Amy “REALLY?!” GIF was made for.
The author is Bill Frezza, a Forbes contributor and the president of The Beta Foundation, the house corporation for the Chi Phi fraternity at MIT. With no exaggeration, Frezza more concerned with frats over people. The whole thing reads like a game of Sexist Victim Blaming No Accountability Bingo: his focus on “irresponsible women,” frets about “false accusations of rape,” and repeated jabs at feminists show he doesn’t care a whit about mens’ role in sexual violence against women — a subject he glosses over entirely except to accuse women of lying about it, even though we all understand that’s really what this whole thing is about.

There’s Julep for nail polish and BirchBox for beauty goodies. So it figures there’s a subscription of-the-month club for frilly underthings, too. It’s called [Enclosed] and you (or a manfriend who is otherwise terrible about picking out knickers) choose the size and style preference and they customize a different pair of panties to send every month. While the options change every month, there are always your favorite cuts to choose from — bikini cut, boyshorts, thongs — and they run the gamut from RRRROWWWW! to sweet. There are even bridal options if you’re looking for a bachelorette party gift. A one-time order from [Enclosed] is $50 or you join for three, six or 12 months for a few bucks less. But with schmancy brands like Eberjey and L’Agent by L’Agent Provocateur on the roster, [Enclosed] is an easy way to freshen up your lingerie drawer — and get a sexy visit from the mailman once a month. (Just kidding, the box is very discreet.) Do you really need another reason to toss those period panties to the curb? [[Enclosed]] [Image of panties in a lingerie drawer via Shutterstock]
This video from Vox shows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of human beings doing all kinds of nifty things, like blowing a trumpet, drinking pineapple juice, giving birth, and even having sex. Watching a penis thrust into a vagina — or what I assume was a vagina — is far less erotic than you think; in fact, it almost appears violent. Far sweeter is when two people are showing kissing and the MRI scan revealed how fast one person’s heart is beating. It’s all very cool and that science dork sort of way. And you thought “Masters Of Sex” was impressive! [YouTube]
