“What’s worse than waking up with a 25-year-old woman, you know what I mean? You want to go shoot yourself because you have nothing to say to her. Seriously. It’s sad but there are men who go for whatever their earliest ideal of a sexual partner was, they stay with that ideal, meaning men often lock into the image of the first girl they loved at 18. They get stuck in an idea of sexuality with young women. Other men learn to see beyond all that. …
Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially over thinking ‘I’ve got to get the hell out of here’ and have a fantasy woman in mind. Then you get divorced, meet a woman, marry her and, by the time all that goes by, you’ve aged a few years and are ready to go back to your ex-wife. You want a woman who is sane and normal. A woman who is more like you. You’ve gotten older.”

So, guess who praised New Jersey‘s recent decision not to legalize gay marriage? Why, Dina Matos, the scorned ex-wife of Jim McGreevey, New Jersey’s former governor who was caught having a homosexual affair and famously came out as a “gay American,” of course!

Please, Forever 21, at least try to make it look like you’re not totally ripping off the street artist Banksy with this $22 cotton hoodie. Admittedly, he probably doesn’t care that he’s being ripped off by a mall chain store: Banksy is so “arty” that he doesn’t sell doodads with his designs on them; instead he posts JPEGs of all his artwork online for his admirers to take for free.
But still. It’s the principle of the thing, Forever 21: think up your own designs! [Forever 21, Banksy] Keep reading »
Virginity documentaries: they’re hot right now. A few weeks ago we reported on an upcoming documentary, “How To Lose Your Virginity,” by filmmaker Therese Shechter. But tonight at 11p.m. (EST), VH1 joins in with an episode called “The New Virginity” for VH1 News. The program focuses mostly on the virgins of pop culture — the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Donna Martin on 90210, etc. — and the hypocrisy of their at-times-sexual public persona with their alleged chastity vows. It will also explain creepy practices like abstinence pledges and purity balls to those of us lucky enough not to get roped into them. Plus, Jessica Valenti, author of The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession With Virginity Is Hurting Young Women and one of the co-founders of Feministing, will be featured as an expert — that’s reason enough to watch!

Oooh, this movie “Chloe” looks good
—and I’m not just saying that because this trailer is in French! Julianne Moore
and Liam Neeson
play a husband and wife and Amanda Seyfried
is the escort
whom Moore hires to test her husband’s fidelity. But really her
fidelity is the one being tested when a smoldering Seyfried seduces the red-headed siren into some girl-on-girl sexytime. Honestly, the Moore/Seyfried kiss isn’t that hot … but Amanda Seyfried in pull-up stockings and garters
is scorched into my brain.
Really, who needs English? Keep reading »
Score one for womanly curves! Researchers in the Journal of Obesity say carrying fat on your butt and thighs (think: pear-shaped) actually helps protect your body from obesity-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Researchers have known for awhile that carrying extra weight on your stomach (read: apple-shaped) is particularly unhealthy, as stomach fat encourages fat dispersal throughout the rest of the body. But all fat is not created equal, said Dr. Robert Kushner of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
Though I’m not obese, I am still thrilled to hear my new booty is not necessarily a health hazard. (Obviously, obesity has many health hazards, but so often the “health facts” and “body-hating opinions” get mixed up in public discourse.) It’s easy to get frustrated when you can’t fit into skinny jeans, but extra padding may have health benefits: Doctors are unsure if thin people are better off in some ways than people who are fattier on their hips and thighs. In fact, Dr. Michael Jensen of the Mayo Clinic told ABC News fat can be actually “an important organ for our health”—I bet you’ve never heard of your badonkadonk described that way!

After 90 years, The Beaver magazine has announced it will change its name after a losing battle with online porn filters. It turns out most folks searching for “beaver” online are not looking for a historical periodical about Canada! “Nearly a century ago, it probably seemed the perfect name for a magazine about the fur trade and Canada’s northwest frontier,” the publisher Deborah Morrison lamented. “There was only one interpretation for the word then.” Ha, we’re surprised this didn’t happen sooner. Starting with the April/May issue, The Beaver will be called the less raunchy-sounding Canada’s History—and will stop confusing pervs who want fanny-flashing Britney pics. [AFP]
