We’re sure lots of guys jumped to attention when they learned the University of Montreal was going to conduct a “pornography study.” Unfortunately, no one got to help out Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse with his research! You see, the professor had hoped to research how relationships between men and women are affected after a man who has never seen porn gets hooked on the stuff. One small problem. “We started our research seeking men in their twenties who had never consumed pornography but we couldn’t find any,” Lajeunesse said. He didn’t flush out what “consumed” means—they had seen it? they jerk off to it?—but I guess it shouldn’t be surprising either way. Everyone, after all, receives emails daily promising “HOT WET FRESHMAN SLUTS” one click away.

The people of Los Angeles have their panties in a knot after Madison, a clothing store on Robertson Boulevard, scoffed at good taste and depicted a “sexy nativity scene” in their store windows. The Virgin Mary lies in the hay with her legs provocatively posed, the baby Jesus sits nestled in her lap, and the pair is surrounded by wise men. All are wearing items from the store, of course! “The way they have presented Mary in a very provocative position with a baby in her crotch, and that baby is supposed to be Jesus … no,” said one woman who complained to KTLA-TV.

The health care reform debate generally seems like a mud-slinging slop fest, but at least it made some progress for women. Today, the Senate passed an amendment to mandate insurance companies to provide coverage of mammograms, pelvic exams, and other preventative services for women. It’s unclear if it covers birth control, though. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) put forth this amendment (estimated to cost $1 billion over the next 10 years) to fund possibly life-saving prevention measures.

They say everything old is new again and that’s not just for leg warmers and neon … male chest hair is back from the ’70s with a vengeance! (The cutesy term for chest hair is “heavage,” but that sounds like what happened after I drank four shots of vodka for the first time.) The popularity of deep V-necks and scoop-neck tops in men’s fashion is to blame, apparently, and the Wall Street Journal says these clothes plus tufts of man fur offer “blatantly sexual … studly swagger.” Keep reading »
Finally, we ladies will understand the disappointment men experience while delicately unhooking a lady’s bra … and realizing it’s a push-up. Fake out! Oh, well. Menfolk looking for help will find that the Shock Jock briefs and boxers by Andrew Christian aid immensely in the cantilevering department. It’s got “extreme frontal enhancing technology,” which is a fancy way to describe a removable/washable padded cup. (Hmm, I wonder if any men on our “16 famous man bulges” list own a Shock Jock!) But seriously, ladies, do you actually know an American man who would pay $29-$32 for a pair of underpants? Didn’t think so. [Shock Jock Brief at Andrew Christian] Keep reading »
When my high school boyfriend cheated on me, I found out the other girl’s Instant Messenger screen name and “confronted” her online. (Not the most mature move, I know. But give me a break! I had just turned 17.) You know what this bitch had the audacity to say to me? “I’ve seen a picture of you! No wonder he cheated.” Owww.
Sadly, that dopey logic is not confined to teenage soccer players who give hickeys to other girls’ boyfriends; it has cycled over and over and over in my mind as this alleged Tiger Woods affair has played out. Surely you, like me, have heard numerous friends or significant others say something to the effect of, “How could he have cheated on his wife? She’s so gorgeous!” Yes, Elin Nordegren is a freaking blonde-haired Swedish former model and her turd husband allegedly still cheated on her. What I want to know is why we insist a woman’s beauty—which is highly subjective!—is some kind of barometer—which is highly shallow!—of whether or not her hubby will cheat. Keep reading »
