The Top 10 Songs About Losing Your Virginity

For most, the onset of puberty is coupled with an obsession with sex. From that point on, it’s all about the V-Card. How are you gonna lose it? Who will be your lucky swiper? When and where will it happen? My personal experience involved my high school boyfriend’s bed, some candles, and Dave Matthews playing…

Girl Talk: I Love Testosterone TV

The boys are back in town! The guys of “Entourage,” that is. I’ve spent the last two Sundays demanding silence at ten o’clock. What can I say? I love testosterone TV. So why does a girly girl like me, who watches “Gossip Girl” and “90210,” have so much love for “bros before hos” shows? Find…

Get Your Rocks Off: 8 Songs For Stripping

Sometimes the desire to please our partners leads us to places unforeseen. Things like trying their hobbies, tasting new foods, listening to new music are all normal fodder when venturing into compromise land. However, sometimes trying new things ventures into the bedroom, inspiring you to, um, perform in ways you wouldn’t for just anyone. To…

Recap + Poll: 90210 Winks & Nods At Some Classic Storylines

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the new 90210 is going to rip off certain aspects of story lines from the old Beverly Hills, 90210. On last night’s episode there were two such instances that were straight up nods to the old Nine-Oh. Read on…

Gossip Girl Greatness: This Show Is My Drug

Call me pathetic because I’m in love with a show about rich high schoolers but I don’t care, I love it anyway. Today I’m even wearing the same silk tunic that Serena wore in last week’s premiere when she was on the beach. (The costume department loses a point though because I’ve had this baby…

The Hills Finally Gets Some Action In Vegas, Plus Audrina & LC Cry It Out

Thank you MTV for finally pulling together two episodes where SOMETHING actually happened on this dang show, and two episodes in a row nonetheless! Let’s start with my favorite quote by our token traitor, Stephanie Pratt. “You broke up with a guy who has a private jet?” Stephanie quips to Lauren. Classic, but…

Crave: Short Necklace For Fall & Winter

Now that scarves have become a year-round thing, it’s only natural that we’re drawn to the funkiest ones we can find. Here’s the short necklace for winter from “Needle by Needle” knitwear.

“The Hills” Have Minimal Thrills

Every week I wonder why it is that I’m still watching and using coveted DVR space for The Hills. I’m sorry, maybe these girls are more interesting in real life, but NOTHING happens on this show. Last night I watched 22 minutes of Lauren deciding that she and Doug should just be friends.

How To Dump Your Summer Fling

It’s become my understanding that “sex on the beach” is a cliché that leads to sand in bad places. However, sex and beach are both words that bring to mind the ultimate summer fling. Scantily clad bodies, sun, surf, outdoor bars, gleaming tans, it all makes for a lovely little fantasy. Unfortunately, fantasies often come…

Love It Or Leave It: Faux Leather Leggings

Leggings are great for working out, lounging around, throwing on, or for pairing with an outfit that was a once cute dress but is now too short. The greatness of leggings, is not what I’m debating here. It’s what’s spawning from these tight favorites that has me worried. Mainly, what are these faux leather, almost

The Daily Hotness: Bryan Greenberg

I totally did a double-take when I saw Bryan Greenberg in the Obama/Will.I.Am “Yes, We Can” video (watch it, after the jump). While I may have missed him originally on One Tree Hill and October Road, he fully caught my attention as Uma Thurman’s way-younger beau in Prime. And he was so effing adorable trying…

The Accidental Mouth Kiss: Haven’t We All Been There?

During last night’s surprise appearance by Barack Obama at the third night of the Democratic National Convention, we totally did a double-take when we saw the dashing Senator from Illinois plant a big one on Jill Biden, the wife of his running mate, Joe Biden. Was it on purpose and platonic mouth kisse…

5 Reasons We Love…Margaret Cho

In honor of the recent premiere of Margaret Cho’s hysterical new show, “The Cho Show”, (quite a mouthful right there!) we’ve decided to compile a little list of why we love this comedian. And check out a clip from her show, after the jump.

How To Save Face During A Breakup

Breakups are bad enough without looking like a total fool in the aftermath. So, in a bold move of honesty, and to help save others in the same place, I’m going to admit that in the throes of some past breakups I’ve been a little bit intense. I’ve learned my lessons on what not to…

The Raunch Report: Tucker Max Versus Chelsea Handler

Often compared and sometimes even considered to be the male and female versions of each other, Tucker Max and Chelsea Handler are ruling the world of crude comedy. Both of their books are laugh-out-loud hilarious, but majorly offensive to the faint of heart. I would know — my friends and I used to do a…
