Ever since David Letterman and ESPN’s Steve Phillips schtupped their underlings, all the glossy women’s magazines have scrambled for a good and juicy “I slept with my boss” story. Elle is the latest lady mag to cough up an inappropriate-relationship-with-the-boss confession‚ but what’s refreshingly candid about ex-investment banker Melanie Berliet’s story is the terms of the relationship. For better or for worse, Berliet was never in love with her boss and never claimed to be. Quite the contrary: she admitted she only answered his late-night calls and replied to his sexts because she wanted “a fat bonus check.” Keep reading »
For those of us who have a gay boyfriend in our lives, we know how to gross them out in five seconds flat. I have a list of words that I know I can say to mine that will make him squirm and run around the room, screaming like a school girl—vagina, p**sy, c**t, clit, moist. My favorite line of questioning with my gay boyfriend is about the one time in college that he had drunken sex with a girl before he was out. Each time I press him for details he says things like, “I don’t really remember,” or “I only put it in there for a second,” or “Ewwwwwwww!” His experience of straight sex is not unlike Adam Lambert’s recent account in Out magazine. When asked about performing oral sex on a woman, he gave this eloquent description of the experience:
“It was a little gross because I don’t think she was as clean as she could’ve been. It wasn’t the act of it that really turned me off. I don’t really remember. I was 18 and I was drunk.”

Unless you are very, very lucky, many women spend tons of money and time in the pursuit of perfect skin. No one seems to stop buying products, and new treatments continue to come out, so it would seem nearly no one achieves the goal.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, chief of dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, recently went on CBS’s “The Early Show” to talk about the subject, and some of her tips were very surprising. The first issue (which we’re all guilty of), is in fact treating the problem too much. “Many women and men use too many products, like exfoliating way too much,” says Marmur. In the end, she suggests, if you don’t know what the product is going to do for you, then chuck it. Which also debunks the myth that you have to spend a lot on fancy creams and lotions: “You can do that for 100 bucks a year. That’s less than 50 cents a day.” Keep reading »
Well, it finally happened. I’ve waited 30 years for this big moment. I remember being 6 years old and sitting in my room, writing fake wedding invitations for my big day. I even remember staging fake weddings when my parents would go out. I’d record ceremony scenes from my favorite movies on my yellow Sony boom box so I could exchange the “proper vows” with my fake husband. I’d put on my whitest clothes, tie my hair up, and put on my mom’s red lipstick. I’m also pretty sure on the nights of my fake weddings I would welcome my baby doll into my new family. Things moved pretty quickly back then. Thankfully, there’s no real baby doll today.
So … how did it happen? Keep reading »

Michelle Thompson suffers from persistent sexual arousal syndrome, a condition which makes her orgasm about 300 times a day. Sweet, I have to imagine, but it probably gets in the way when she’s trying to shop for groceries, or do her taxes or, as it turns out, when she’s trying to build a relationship. Michelle says she used to wear men out. She said, about a man she dated for five years, “By the time we broke up, he was exhausted, he left as a defeated man.” And most men give up much more easily.

A wacky new study called “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” followed 2,500 couples who are married or have lived together for at least six years and discovered there are, gasp, lots of factors that lead to the success (or failure) of a relationship besides just falling in or out of love. For example — this is going to shock you — women who want babies much more than their husbands are more likely to divorce than women who marry men who want kids just as much as they do! People whose parents divorced are more than 50 percent more likely to divorce or separate than those whose parents stayed married. And people who are on their second or third marriage are 90 percent more likely to divorce than spouses who are both on their first marriages. One in five couples who have children before marriage, either from a previous relationship or their current one, will separate, compared to just one in ten couples who do not have children before getting married. Just one in ten? That figure seems to contradict the finding that a quarter of all relationships will end within six years and half within 25, but maybe I’m splitting hairs here. Age is another factor that determines the success of marriage — men who marry before 25 are twice as likely to get divorced as those who marry after turning 25, as are men who are more than nine years older than their wives. Stuff that doesn’t matter so much? A woman’s employment status, country of birth, religious background and education levels. [via Daily Mail]

NBC’s The Thread posted a piece on how to do your makeup on the subway, which got us thinking about situations in which we ladies use cosmetics in public. Not that we haven’t done it a million times before, but the thought of having to primp during your morning commute doesn’t sound very inviting. Not to mention, it’s an open invitation for people to stare at you as you make your horrifying mascara face (oh come on, everyone has one). Plus, it’s probs dangerous. Keep reading »
MTV’s first foray out of music videos came in 1987, when host Ken Ober launched a hysterical hybrid of sketch comedy meets game show called “Remote Control.” For five seasons, in a studio tricked out to look like his mother’s basement, Kenny carried out his lifelong dream of hosting a game show. Contestants sat in arm chairs with seat belts buckled around them, and got ejected, recliner-style, out the back (with their chairs) when they were eliminated.
Kenny went on to produce “Mind of Mencia” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” but has clicked the off button for the final time. He was found dead yesterday at his home in Los Angeles. This loss has us looking back at his debut effort, a show which reshaped a network and shaped us in a lot of ways. Keep reading »
