French band M83 sounds kind of ’80s, which is what summertime should sound like, in my opinion. I had Nathan take a listen to their synthy song “Kim and Jessie.” Too bad neither of us can roller-skate, otherwise, we’d totally replay this video over and over and over and over and over until we learned all of the skater girls’ moves. We’d obviously have to wear matching outfits, too.
Catherine: So, we are in the ’80s, undressing.
Nathan: Wait, is this porn? Keep reading »
Men have long written-off tickets to professional sports events and rounds of golf as business expenses, because, people have said, it’s important to develop relationships outside the office so clients and colleagues will be more comfortable and willing to actually do business with you. If you’re a woman in business who doesn’t golf or enjoy watching men pummel each other, you’re kind of out of luck, aren’t you? If you do business with other women, maybe not. An article from New Jersey’s Star-Ledger suggests that maybe women should be allowed to write-off outings that help them forge relationships, like the Macy’s shoe department. Unfortunately the IRS doesn’t like it when you deduct any business meeting where there are “substantial distractions,” but we’re hoping they come to their senses and realize that important deals can go down in places wherever females can bond, even if there are fabulous Jimmy Choos present.

That’s because the magazine Us Weekly lives at UsMagazine.com on the web. But guess what occupies UsWeekly.com? A site in support of John McCain for President, which seems to spend all of its space bashing McCain’s opponent, Senator Barack Obama. Some choice diatribes: “Barack Obama’s ‘fight the smears’ campaign is the same strategy Fidel Castro used to convince Cubans to elect him”, “In Indonesia the Barack Obama autobiography titled ‘The Audacity of Hope’ is titled ‘Assault Hope: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse’”, and “Barack Obama warned supporters (behind closed doors of course) that the GOP will use his race to ‘scare’ white voters.” Keep reading »
Ah, Fox News. We hardly knew ye! Most Americans know the Fox News Channel as the home of some of this country’s most famously conservative pundits, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity among them — and Roger Ailes, a former Nixon adviser, is the network’s president. But, as it turns out, FOXNews.com aims to take a more hardcore approach to reporting the news. On the website, Dr. Yvonne Kristin Fulbright is the network’s in-house “FOXSexpert.” In her column, Fulbright offers conservative news-mongers sex tips and advice that are downright raunchy. From sado-masochism to premature ejaculation, celebrity sex tapes to transcendental orgasms, it’s Fox gone wild. After the jump, the best of the sex that Fox News has to offer.

I was shopping at a Chicago grocery store this weekend, and I happened upon these “His & Hers Value Pack” water bottles. While it’s great to fill up a reusable bottle rather than drinking from throwaways, why does the girl’s have to be pinkish? Why not green? Keep reading »
Not sure if you want to spend $3.99 on this month’s Vogue? Don’t worry, we’ve got Wendy Felton, Editor of GlossedOver.com, here to tell you exactly what’s up on the sex, love, and relationships front in each month’s crop of lady mags.
Few of us grow up to become princesses and settle down with Prince Charming, so this month, the magazines examine our oft-abandoned ideals. They cover the ideal man (wealthy), the ideal sex life (open-minded and often), and the ideal way to behave when confronted with something less-than-ideal (write an essay for a women’s magazine).

Just one more way the economy is changing our sex lives…Rising food prices will probably drive more women to trade sex for basic goods, like cooking oil, according to U.N. officials. Delegates at a AIDS conference in Mexico discussed actual cases in the Pacific and Kenya, where “fish for sex” deals are common. [Reuters] Keep reading »
All this talk about polyamory has convinced me it’s time to confess a rather intimate secret: I’m a fan of Swingtown on CBS. I know I can’t be the only fan out there — the message boards prove that (Yes, I’m actually reading the message boards. Look, my boyfriend’s been away on business. I’m lonely.), but it’s been difficult to find anyone in real life who admits to watching the show.
