sex strike

When the women of the small African country of Togo want something, they truly take one for the team: in order to urge the president of Togo to resign, the women are holding a sex strike. A civil rights group called Let’s Save Togo is encouraging women to withhold sex from their husbands for one week in hopes it will push men to oust the current president. (At least one man already has suggested a shorter time period — two days — instead.) I confess to not understanding much about the culture of Togo but it seems that even withholding sex as part of a political  protest might not be easy for wives: One woman told the AP it will be “easy for me to observe it” but she is “not sure” her husband would “accept” the strike; another woman told the AP that “I know my husband will not let me complete it … He likes that too much.” Sex strikes have had successes before, however: The leader of the women’s wing of Let’s Save Togo said the group is taking their cue from Liberian women, whose 2003 sex strike helped bring peace to the country. And of course there is the famous Greek play “Lysistrata.” Good luck, ladies. [San Francisco State]

Prince Harry is so “disappointed” in himself (uh huh) but the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is more upset at Harry’s chucklehead party buddies who broke the official code of “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Somewhere, Paris Hilton is pouting that she never inspired her very own Vegas tourism ad campaign.

Cheatin’ Politician Mark Sanford Proposes To Mistress After Hiding In A Bathroom Stall

Mark Sanford photo

I just love a happy ending, especially when it involves infidelity and hiding in bathroom stalls.

Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is engaged to his mistress after popping the question last week. Sanford famously “went missing” in 2009 while supposedly hiking on the Appalachian trail, but was caught by journalists visiting his Argentinian mistress Maria Belen Chapur, whom he called his “soul mate.” Sanford’s wife, Jenny Sanford, divorced him following the scandal (and penned a tell-all book) and the ex-governor and Chapur began openly dating. As bizarre as their courtship has been, the proposal was just as weird.  Keep reading »

I’ve always thought primer was a slightly dodgy beauty product. Do I really need to put more gunk on my face, on top of my moisturizer and serum but under my makeup? Apparently so.

I’ll admit primer does keep foundation and concealer on my face longer, which is ideal for days that my skin is speckled with pre-period pimples. I usually wore a primer from Smashbox, but only on rare those premenstrual occasions. However, when Target sent me their JK Jemma Kidd Instant Life Skin Perfecting primer to try, I gave it a shot.   Keep reading »
