Sarah Palin Does “Saturday Night Live”

Last night Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for Vice-President, made not one, but two cameos on “Saturday Night Live”. I have to say, she was pretty funny! Although, if she and her handlers think all the talk of her hotness is sexist, is she contributing to the sexism by doing a skit where Alec Baldwin tells her she’s “way hotter in person”? Whatever, I laughed. Above, her first cameo (featuring special guests Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, AND Mark “Say Hi To Your Motha For Me” Wahlberg, and after the jump, the second, in which she thankfully does NOT rap.

Tyra’s Looking For More To Stuff Back In The Closet

Tyra is a diva who likes to pull stunts like a bra burning. But nothing is as inflammatory as sexuality. So, now the talk show host is demanding some guests who want to stop being gay. Say what?! Maybe she’s planning on showing a leopard can’t change it spots by ruining an exotic fur couture coat? Or perhaps she’ll fix ‘em up with her “America’s Next Top Model” gays Mr. and Mrs. Jay? But if there’s anyone crazier than her, it’s a homosexual trying to straighten up. [Feministing] Keep reading »

    Does “W” Stand For “Worth Seeing” Or “Worthless”?

    This weekend, Oliver Stone’s highly anticipated movie about the fairly unpopular president (Bush), “W”, comes out. I’m psyched to see this film, though I’m still pretty unclear on whether it’s a comedy or a drama. Still, Josh Brolin (Dubya), Elizabeth Banks (Laura), Ellen Burstyn (Barbara), and James Cromwell (George Sr.) should add up to being a pretty compelling movie, acting wise. And Richard Dreyfus plays Dick Cheney! That’s so perfect because I hate Richard Dreyfus. Anyway, after the jump, a summary of some of the reviews so far, so you can decide for youself if this is a must-see or a see-it-on-HBO type flick. Keep reading »

    Sex On TV: Discussing The Dirty Deed

    On last night’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dr. Callie Torres struggled with her feelings for Dr. Erica Hahn. Neither of them has been in a same-sex relationship before, and Callie isn’t sure she’s going to like the sex part. In the above clip, Dr. Miranda Bailey gives Callie some advice that all of us could use whenever we’re doing something for the first time. See, you shouldn’t really be doing anything that you don’t feel comfortable talking about. Now, didn’t we all learn that in seventh-grade sex ed? Keep reading »

    The Recession Is Good For Business At Sex Shops

    Bonnie Fuller wrote yesterday on The Moment blog about how the recession is affecting people’s sex lives, a topic we have explored before. So, are hard economic times helping people’s sex lives? Fuller did some research among New York retailers, and made an interesting discovery: Business is actually up at specialty sex shops.

    Erotic toy and lingerie store Babeland saw a 25-percent increase in sales the week of Sept. 29 compared to the same week last year. “The same thing happened after 9/11, when our business also soared. I think we’re recession-proof because sex accessories are an inexpensive luxury,” said Claire Cavanah, the store’s co-founder.

    Even lingerie store La Petite Coquette has been selling loads of lacy underthings. “We think men are really stressed out and working harder, so their wives and girlfriends are buying lingerie to help their guys relax,” owner Rebecca Aspan said. Ummm, we’re really stressed out and working harder, too! What are our husbands and boyfriends doing to help us relax, buying silk boxers for themselves? We hope not. Keep reading »

    Facebook Relationship Status Change Ends In Tragedy

    Last week I changed my relationship status on Facebook from “engaged” to “single”, since I had decided my break was now a breakup. Emma Forrester, a married woman in the U.K., changed her status to single too, only her husband responded by hacking her to death with a meat cleaver. Wayne Forrester told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status on her Facebook entry, and had taken copious amounts of cocaine and alcohol before the murder. He’s been jailed for a minimum of 14 years. There’s really nothing I can say about this, because it’s insanely f–ked up. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
