I spent most of last week being confused/disturbed by Panty O’s new kegel panties, which allow you to exercise your vaginal muscles while you wear the underwear. I found this frightening, but then I received a press release for the Magic Banana. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either. It’s a flexible accessory for “strengthening your inner magical muscles.” I’m not going to get anymore detailed, but I think you should watch the instructional video. Just do it. It uses the phrase “in the smiling position.” So it’s marketed as a kegel exerciser that is supposed to help you achieve multiple orgasms.
The Magic Banana led me down a kegel wormhole. Pun intended. Let me warn you, most kegel exercise products are pastel and look like Medieval torture devices. But if your vagina’s been slacking off, you might want to check out some of the products available to work the lazy girl out.
Twihards are obviously in a tizzy over the shocking (shocking!) revelation this week that Kristen Stewart had cheated on her sparkly vampire-playing boyfriend Robert Pattinson with the director of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Rupert Sanders. Rob has supposedly moved out of the couple’s LA house and, in those fans’ dreams, nursing his broken heart by reading their psychotically supportive tweets. But what about the other person hurt by Stewart and Sanders’ “marathon makeout session” — Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross? Who is she? Here’s what we know about her…
Soooo, apparently there’s a severe storm warning for the city, specifically “potential for a widespread damaging wind event/derecho.” How apocalyptic. I’m glad I’m wearing a tight skirt. Anyway, here’s what we’re wearing on this soon-to-be very windy day.
Do you have long hair? Wish you had long hair (raises hand)? Then let this collection of the best and worst braids serve as a guideline and a warning to you. Your long hair is beautiful! Don’t muss it up with an unfortunately plaited braid.
We spent a good amount of time objectifying the hot male Olympians competing in this year’s summer Olympic games, so we thought it only fair that we focus our attentions on the ladies of the games, too. The 15 women (and there are countless others we couldn’t fit into this slideshow) featured here are hot not just because of their gorgeous faces and fit bodies, but also because they’re fierce competitors who have climbed to the top in their respective fields.

Not that I really care either way, but let’s say that Zooey Deschanel did get some kind of nose job, she’ll probably blame it on her deviated septum. It is the Hollywood way. Whenever a celeb gets a nose job, but doesn’t want to admit to have working done for the sake of having work done, this seems to be the reason. Yes, this is a legitimate medical condition. It basically means that the bottom, middle cartilage part of your nose (proper name: septum) is off-center, causing your nostrils to be different sizes.
My septum is deviated. Actually, yours probably is too. Stats say that about 80 percent of the population have deviated septums. It’s usually not serious. And if you have one, life will go on without you ever noticing it except maybe when you have a cold. In more extreme cases, it can inhibit breathing, cause frequent nosebleeds or chronic sinusitis. But mostly, it’s serves as a thinly veiled excuse to get a rhinoplasty. Click through to see all of famous peeps who attributed their nose jobs to deviated septums.
