The Empire State Building, which often changes the colors of its lights at night to reflect holidays, is going to be awash in lavender, pink, and white this weekend in honor of Mariah Carey. If this is true, we are kind of going to hurl. We like Mimi A LOT, but this is ridic. The dang Pope didn’t get any special colors! [Towleroad] Keep reading »
“This is a film we could not have made before, obviously, because the biggest difference that our generation has from our mothers’ is that we just don’t have babies yet. Our mothers by this time in life had one, two, three children, or they were never going to have children. Our mothers look at us now — I’m 36 — and the choices and experiences we have are way different than what they had from 25 to 35…and then we do like really funny fart jokes.” — Amy Poehler on her new film Baby Mama Keep reading »
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has called for a conference to discuss the “racy” photos leaked on the internet of Miley Cyrus flashing a lil’ green bra at a camera when she was 14. “Look, we have so few role models, particularly for little girls in this country,” he said. “She is the main one. I hate to see this. Parents all over the country like this girl because she is clean-cut.” The fact is, we listen to Miley Cyrus (so not embarassed about that) and do think her music has a little sexiness that maybe is odd for 14, but after Britney Spears and her “Hit Me Baby” mini skirts and crop tops, she seems pretty tame. Also, what is the point of a conference headed by Bill O’Reilly? No one would get a word in edgewise on this oh so important topic. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Anyone who has ever picked up a Playgirl has probably learned their lesson the hard way (no pun intended). The mag is famous for publishing naked pictures they get sent by amateurs in the â€œReal Menâ€ section. While porn superstar Ron Jeremy got his start as one of these snapshots, youâ€™re more likely to see some scary shaved grandpa-parts and silly sex costumes. We always make a point to flip past that page, but daytime talk show host Maury Povich wasnâ€™t afraid to go there. Take a look at these clips from his infamous Playgirl episode special, which features more muscle than a race car, a mother who sent Playgirl pictures of her son, a jealous host, a mullet, and an appreciative granny. It’s classic! [About halfway through this video we think we spotted a flash of buttock, so it's potentially NSFW. That said, this did air at the same time as Sesame Street!]
Some men in the Congo fear that their penises have been stolen or shrunk by sorcerers. (Guys, you were born that way! You can’t blame your small size on a sorcerer!) Reports of penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where witchcraft remains widespread, and things can get pretty violent as accusations fly. A decade ago, 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs, so these days, police arrest suspected victims and sorcerers to prevent violence. “I’m tempted to say it’s one huge joke,” said Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, Kinshasa’s police chief. “But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’.” [Reuters] Keep reading »

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell
Okay, ladies this is a very special addition of “We See Chick Flicks”. Both because I loved, loved, loved this movie and for the PENIS factor. Yup, you’ve probably heard about it, and maybe some of you have already seen it, but this movie is very, how shall I put it, frontally loaded. And we’re not talking a little peek, we’re talking the WHOLE pecker (and might we add, the 6-foot-something actor shows his…height). We’re talking full view, slightly hard schlong. Most movies who deign to show the whole male form, wimp out with a little glimpse of the turtle head, but Jason worked hard (pun intended) to show us his full potential. While getting fully hard would have warranted an X-rating, he got right up to that point, a point which we will refer to as “getting long” [Meaty! -- Editor], and let me tell you, he’s got nothing to be ashamed of. Now. Moving on. Keep reading »
Putting on pasties for the first time was fabulous. Putting on pasties for the first time while lactatingâ€”well, that was fabulous and messy. But no matter what, I refuse to turn them in!
Before I became a mom, I regularly emceed a bunch of New York-based burlesque shows (Starshine Burlesque, Le Scandal, and Red Hots Burlesque to name a few) and I found that audiences enjoyed my raunchy persona, a combination of Elviraâ€™s boobs and wardrobe, Ethel Merman’s voice and Rudy Ray Mooreâ€™s mouth (and if you donâ€™t know who Rudy Ray Moore is, I encourage you to get schooled immediately). But once I had a kid, everyone seemed to assume that I would change, that Iâ€™d become more, oh, I donâ€™t know, virginal. I always thought that was kind of odd. After all, I had an 8 pound 12 ounce infant pop out of my vag, so there was no longer anything even remotely virginal about me (not like there had been before).

Getting dumped sucks, but thereâ€™s always a lesson to be learned from a failed relationship, right? Ben Karlin and the other men who contributed to Things Iâ€™ve Learned From Women Whoâ€™ve Dumped Me seem to think so. We had real-life couple (who have broken up and gotten back together) read and discuss the book of essays.
Yasmin: I donâ€™t know what to make of this book. Some of the essays had me cracking up, and others left me thinking, â€œWhereâ€™s the punch line?â€
Harley: I actually thought it was a great idea to take a bunch of writers and comedians and have them share their stories about getting screwed over by girls. I found myself thinking back on similar events. No matter who you are, you can relate, you know? Keep reading »
A good-looking guy can approach you with a manly swagger, but if his smile is busted, game over. And no amount of alcohol can make you feel good about frenching a mouth full of rotten nubbin teeth. Sorry, Austin Powers. So whereâ€™s a girl to go? According to Menâ€™s Health, the best bites are in the Midwest, with cities like Minneapolis, Madison, and St. Paul topping their lists. Although Las Vegas is ranked high as one the cities that buy the most floss, weâ€™re pretty sure the locals call it â€œg-strings.â€ [Menâ€™s Health] Keep reading »
