Friday Jones, who is opening the luxe tattoo parlor Friday Jones Fifth Avenue this month, inked Angelina Jolie with Billy Bob’s name (on her vag!) back in the day. And luckily for Jolie, Jones had the wisdom to make the “Billy Bob” tattoo as much like a washable Crayola marker as she possibly could. Yikes. READ MORE »

Even though model Sara Ziff has walked for Chanel and Marc Jacobs and has been the face of Calvin Klein, Gap, Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana, she strips the modeling industry of its glamour like she’s ripping off false eyelashes. Mentorship from Twiggy? Coddling from Miss Jay?

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaa-dies! We’ve got a new porno mag out over in England!

But unfortunately, Filament received a sour review from the Daily Mail, which hissed, “Most of the boys pictured are effeminate and not arousing.”

Indeed, we, too, are flabbergasted with Filament’s idea of what makes women wet. Apparently it’s skinny boy-men with soft… READ MORE »

But still, the stats about sexual assault and tales of misogynistic behavior in the essay, “Bros Before Hos,” published by history and gender studies professor Nicholas L. Syrett on the National Sexuality Resource Center’s web site,… READ MORE »
