Ladies, ladies, back up, there’s enough crazy gimp man meat for everyone. There’s furry gimp, jolly green gimp, abstract art gimp — and everybody’s favorite –  plaid destiny. If you want special time with him, there’s a six- to eight-week wait. Sorry, I don’t make the rules, I just enforce.

13 Transgressive Looks From Thom Browne

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. I was busy salivating over the Fall 2012 menswear collection from my favorite wackadoodle designer Thom Browne. Mr. Browne — he of the lobster claw arms from Spring 2012 — is famous for his transgressive take on fashion and the body. Browne plays with proportion and male archetypes and reworks them into incredible pin-headed plays on masculinity. And for that, his works should be noted. After the jump, check out 13 of our favorite looks from his latest menswear collection.

My name is Julie, and I have a problem: I don’t know how to dress like an adult.

Maybe I should have listened when my mom warned that becoming a vegetarian at age 13 would stunt my growth. Even if she was wrong, I’m only 5 feet tall. And this has presented some “interesting” style challenges. For one, everything has to get hemmed. Another: It feels nearly impossible to look like a real, actual legitimate grownup. Keep reading »

Cheryl Cohen Greene has devoted the last 40 years of her life to helping others overcome sexual discomfort and dysfunction through her work as a sex surrogate. She’s seen nearly a thousand clients in that time — some of whom she merely touches and shares affection with, others with whom she actually has intercourse  – and believes that her work has the power to change lives. Her career also had an impact on her own sex life; she met her husband Bob in 1979 when he came to her as a client, struggling with performance anxiety. Keep reading »

A Backpack With Bicycle Appeal

As a bike-riding, purse-wearing lady, one of the most frustrating things is finding a cute bag that can also be worn while riding my bike. Shoulder bags simply don’t work: I once actually rode into a street sign trying to balance my purse on my shoulder while maneuvering my bike. That’s why I’m totally in love with the Royal Bank of McD’s “Fixie” Bicycle Back Pack. Made of leather and satin with gold-plated snaps, this bag can be worn as a backpack or a messenger bag, and has a feminine feel, despite it’s clearly masculine silhouette. Yes, the Fixie costs a pretty penny (or more accurately, about the same as a really nice Italian fixed gear bike), but hey, it’s made so well it’ll last you a lifetime. Or at least a lifetime of bike rides.

“I actually did hear from [Ryan Gosling] one time. He invited me to a magic show through someone else, and I couldn’t go because I had to go to this charity thing for Amy, and it was like, ‘bros before hos,’ or ‘hos before bros,’ however that phrase goes. I just rhymed a lot. So, yeah. I don’t know what’s in store for me and him. I think he has a girlfriend, but maybe I’ll murder her someday and we’ll be together forever.”

– “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza on her lust for Ryan Gosling. It seems Plaza ran into  Gosling in a Jamba Juice earlier this year, but didn’t recognize him, and now really, really regrets it. Also, notice that someone other than Amelia is writing this RG post! The Goservention is working! [NYMag]
