Mandy Moore Is A Masturbating Swinger In New Sex Comedy

Hello. Here’s a side of Mandy Moore we haven’t seen: raunchy sex comedy star. She stars in the upcoming comedy, “Swinging With The Finkels,” as a wife who suggests she and her husband, played by Martin Freeman (or Dr. Watson on “Sherlock,” for all you BBC nerds), “see another couple” as a way to spice up their marriage. This looks pretty funny. Especially the part where she bonks Jerry Stiller in the crotch with a vibrator. It’s already debuted in England, apparently, so ask your friend who lives in London how it is. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: NYC Public Schools To Require Students Take Sex Ed

  • Beginning this year, New York City’s public middle school and high school students will be required to take sex education classes. Classes include directions on how to use a condom and discussions about STDs and pregnancy. Wait, what, this didn’t already exist? Apparently not. The New York Times reports this is the first time in almost 20 years students are required to take sex ed in this level of detail. [New York Times]
  • The New York Times Magazine has a piece coming up this weekend about “pregnancy reduction,” which is when someone who is pregnant with twins or other multiples aborts some of the fetuses so that they only give birth to one child. [New York Times Magazine]
  • Women only hold one-quarter of jobs in science, technology, engineering and math, which is the same level they did in 2000. [Think Progress]

Blake Lively Played By “The Rules” To Catch Leonardo Di Caprio

blake lively photo

The love affair of Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively has taken many twists and turns, but the strangest of all are reports that the “Gossip Girl” star reeled in the ladies’ man by following The Rules. Too young to remember The Rules? It’s a dating advice book published by two women in 1995 that prescribed 35 different “rules” for alluring, snagging, and domesticating the male species. The book advises a woman to never pay for herself on a date; never call him; rarely returns his calls; never accept a Saturday night date after Wednesday; end phone calls and dates first; and return one email for every four he sends. Some of the self-help wisdom contained therein is just obvious, such as reminding women that if you show a man your Pikachu on the first date he might not assume you’re looking for a serious relationship. But the rest of it is just a convoluted series of mind games with cult-like restrictions like “Don’t discuss the rules with your therapist” and “Do the rules, even if your friends and parents think it’s nuts.” The premise behind the book is that all men like “the chase,” so women need to make them work for it.

So, how did Blake use The Rules to supposedly snag her man? Keep reading »

Gloria Steinem Urges Boycott Of “The Playboy Club”

I, for one, am excited about “The Playboy Club,” NBC’s new fall show that sounds like a bonus dose of the sex, drugs and cultural upheaval we’ve come to love from “Mad Men.” (Come back soon, pretty please?) But other ladies are less than thrilled, such as the inimitable Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon/all-around badass who went undercover as a waitress/Bunny at the Playboy Club in 1963 for an exposé in Show magazine. In an interview with Reuters to promote a new documentary about her life, the 77-year-old huffed and puffed, “Clearly ‘The Playboy Club’ is not going to be accurate. It was the tackiest place on earth. It was not glamorous at all.” I take her word for this: her exposé revealed many things to the public about the so-called harmless fun of Playboy Club culture, including how all the waitresses were required to have a pelvic exam and a test for STDs. Let me repeat that: waitresses had to get tested for STDs. “[O]ne of the things they had to change because of my expose was that they required all the Bunnies, who were just waitresses, to have an internal exam and a test for venereal disease,” Steinem said, no doubt with pride. She continued to praise “Mad Men” as “a net plus [for pop culture], because it shows the world of the early 1960s with some realism.” However, she added, “I expect that ‘The Playboy Club’ will be a net minus and I hope people boycott it. It’s just not telling the truth about the era.” Keep reading »

“Horsemaning” — Er, Faked Beheading — Is The New “Planking”

Planking was stupid. Owling was stupider. And let’s not forget coneing. Feast your eyes on “horsemaning,” which the Internet claims is an old time-y way 1920s’ pranksters would fake a beheading. All you have to do is pose like you’re holding your own head in your hands: get someone to lie flat on their back with her head obscured while you pose with your head near her outstretched hand. Macabre? Yes. Funny? Also yes. I happily await the inevitable cavalcade of celebs tweeting “horsemaning” pics on Twitter! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Morning Quickies: There’s A James Franco Sex Tape!

  • A James Franco sex tape? The man of many, uh, talents admitted on “Conan” last night that when he was “young,” he and a girlfriend filmed themselves have sex. “[We] watched it back and said yeah, let’s never watch that again,” Franco said laughing. [Team Coco via Huffington Post]
  • I’m just rolling my eyes at this report that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are “trying for a baby.” [US Weekly]
  • The Situation taught Jay Leno how he picked up women in Italy, using Jesse Eisenberg as a stand-in for an attractive Italian woman. [Huffington Post]
  • Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush is allegedly texting her and leaving voicemails “begging” her not to marry Kris Humphries and give him a second chance. It’s a bit late for that, hon. [Life & Style]

Evening Quickies: “The Hills” Movie Is Coming To A Theater Near You, Maybe

  • Someone in Hollywood thinks MTV’s reality show “The Hills” has big-screen blockbuster written all over it. Audrina Patridge told Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that the girls’ nixed a “Hills” movie before because “we were kind of all just so fed up with each other.” Now that they’ve had a break, though, she thinks “maybe” a movie will happen after all. Please … just … no. [US Weekly]
  • “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is adapting The Nanny Diaries for ABC. I hope it’s better than that terrible movie version. [TV Guide]
  • A very exciting behind-the-scenes “Mad Men” photo shows all the pointing, laughing, and Blackberry-reading that goes on while filming. [Entertainment Weekly]

Today’s Lady News: Sean Hannity Will Not Pay For Your Birth Control, You Whore

  • Why does anyone go on Fox News “talk shows” when they just get screamed at? Sean Hannity burst a vein in his neck bellowing about how if he is not having the sex, he shouldn’t be “paying for” the birth control under the new health care reform laws. People should have “responsibility,” you see, and pay for their own birth control or practice abstinence. Abstinence, as you know, is wonderfully realistic for horny Americans! I wonder if Hannity objects as strongly to paying for other people’s lung cancer treatments, other people’s cirrhosis, and other people’s Five Guys-induced diabetes, which are all things Hannity is already “paying for.” Don’t they have a “responsibility,” too? Anyway, not having sex is clearly a topic this man is familiar with. [Media Matters]
  • Meet Rosie, a golden retriever therapy dog, who recently sat on the witness stand with a 15-year-old girl who was testifying that her father had raped her. Dogs like Rosie cuddle and nuzzle child victims as they sit on the stand and help them keep calm while recounting their stories. Critics are concerned, however, that a cute puppy dog elicits too much sympathy from the jury and will sway opinions. (Yes, this is a Lady News story, because Rosie is a lady dog!) [New York Times]
