What People Say Before, During, And After Sex

Most of the time, pillow talk isn’t supposed to be funny, but sometimes it is. And, other times, it’s painfully awkward. The new site Said in Bed compiles real people’s quotes said before, during, or after sex. Our favorite on the site so far:

“Doesn’t it feel good?” she said.
“Doesn’t it feel good to Payless?” he said.

Keira Knightley Gets Domestically Abused

The British anti-violence charity Women’s Aid just released this PSA starring Keira Knightley and directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement” and “Pride and Prejudice”). “I wanted to take place in this advert for Women’s Aid because while domestic violence exists in ever section of society, we rarely hear about it,” Knightley said. “We may not think we know someone who has experienced domestic violence, but this does not mean that it is not happening.” Beware, because the two-minute video is disturbing — but then so is domestic violence, and maybe we need to be shocked into realizing what’s goes on in some relationships.

    Learn About Animal Sex From Isabella Rossellini

    The second round of Isabella Rossellini’s Sundance Channel series “Green Porno” is now online, and we recommend that you watch all six short episodes. Not only will you learn all about how anglerfish reproduce, but Rossellini is hysterical, and you get to see her dressed up as a barnacle, starfish, and a whale. Plus, hearing her say “penis” in her gorgeous accent is amusing.

    You Like Sexytime? Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Bruno” Spanked With NC-17 Rating

    Ruh-roh. Looks like “Bruno,” Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie about a gay Austrian fashion guru, may land an NC-17 rating. The party-poopers of the Motion Picture Association of America weren’t amused by the raunchy sex in the film—like when Bruno mimics backdoor boinking with another dude. Keep reading »

    Hatshepsut, The Cross-Dressing Pharaoh

    If you haven’t noticed, we’re a bit obsessed with women throughout history. National Women’s History Month may be over, but we can’t help but to keep highlighting interesting women from the past. My sister got me a subscription to National Geographic for Christmas, and the April issue introduced me to Hatshepsut, a female pharaoh who ruled Egypt form 1479 to 1458 B.C. Since it’s now 2009 A.D. and the U.S. still hasn’t had a female president, you can imagine that it was a pretty big deal for Hatshepsut to rule back then.

    The pharaoh’s body was discovered two years ago, and we still don’t know much about her life, but what we do know is rather scandalous. Hatshepsut was the eldest daughter of Thutmose and Queen Ahmose. Because they believed so much in strengthening royal bloodlines, incest wasn’t a bad thing and Hatshepsut married her half-brother Thutmose II, producing one daughter with him. Thutmose II’s heir, however, was a son by another woman. Thutmose III was super young when his father died, so Hatshepsut stepped in to help him out. Keep reading »

    Starbucks Wants You To Buy Their Coffee And Enjoy A Same Sex Kiss

    Ah, April — the month of fools, taxes and same sex kisses? Well, yes. Apparently, Starbucks, because it’s one of the most “gay-friendly, corporate spots in the world,” will be hosting Same Sex Kiss Day on April 15th this year. Exploiting the LGBT community, Starbucks is encouraging everyone to come out and buy a cup of coffee from them and uh, kiss someone of the same sex, because, like, LGBT people don’t yet have the same rights to file their federal taxes jointly and everyone knows a coffee and a kiss will solve that! Don’t have someone of the same sex to make-out with? No Problem! There’s a Facebook page, of course, where you can “find someone cute in your town.” And no, you don’t get a free cup of coffee is your participate. How would that help Starbucks, I mean, the LGBT community?! Keep reading »

    The Real Housewives Of NYC: Kelly Bensimon Brings The Crazy

    On last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of New York City,” Kelly Bensimon attempted to tear Bethenny a new you-know-what for daring to call her “Madonna” at the arthritis charity meeting. Bethenny, as you may recall, was appalled that Kelly wouldn’t put her name on the invitation (Kelly doesn’t lend her name to anything), which just added to her general dislike of the latest housewife.

    [Note: Personally, I think the [soon-to-be-former] C(o)untess LuAnn had Kelly added to the show so she would seem less evil in comparison. Totally worked, FYI, as LuAnn seems like Mother Theresa to me now.] Keep reading »
