Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
We know it’s a big old cliché that ladies use Halloween as an excuse to dress all risqué. While we’ll probably go out of our way to avoid this stereotype (personally, we prefer to go the “funny” route, but here’s a debate on either/or), slutting it up can definitely get you some extra attention, and if that’s your goal, we can help. So if you’re more of a “if ya can’t beat ‘em, might as well join ‘em” type, click through for the top “sexy costumes” and get inspired by the racy items you need to pull the look off.

We’ve already posted about Roman Polanski being arrested this weekend for that decades-old “sex with a minor” conviction, but after watching the ladies of “The View” argue over the issue this morning, I felt compelled to write more. For starters, in the clip above, Whoopi Goldberg, who I never expected to be a rape apologist, coins a term I’ve never heard before — “rape-rape.” Apparently “rape-rape” is NOT when you drug a 13-year-old girl with alcohol and a Quaalude and then have anal sex with her. That’s something else that’s, apparently, not as bad. WTF? Keep reading »
We’re not just the first generation to elect a black president—some say we’re also the first generation in which gay teenagers feel safe coming out to their parents and classmates. In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine cover story, writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis chronicled how adolescents are so much more confident telling their friends, families and parents that they’re gay at younger ages than ever before. Just how young? The author spent time with middle schoolers across the country who’ve come out of the closet at 13, 12, and even 11 years old. Keep reading »
Mondays are never easy. Over the weekend, you get out of your daily routine of showering, dressing in halfway presentable clothes, and working. So, Monday ends up being about readjusting. I ended up wearing my travel clothes to work since I was out of town this weekend, and while I’m not one who likes to shower excessively, I can’t wait to get home and wash my hair. How’re you holding up?
Camel and gray is the most sophisticated color combination for fall, just ask Derek Lam and Michael Kors, who both showed it on the fall runway. Heading out to meet friends at Place de la Bourse, Marie nails the season’s trend by layering her gray Comptoir des Contonniers dress with a camel Uniqlo cardigan. The cool girl attitude? Also seen on the runway. Keep reading »
“Mad Men” has been a lil’ up and down for me this season, with some serious highs — the “everyone has a talent” episode! — and lows — slowwwwww moving storylines, for one. On last night’s episode, something totally climactic happened, but it gave me a case of the pukes. Yes, “I wanna take you in that bedroom, lock the door, take your clothes off with my teeth, throw you on the bed, and give you a go-around like you’ve never had,” is a hot pick-up line — but uttered by Duck?! VOMS.

The Canadian literary scene lost one of it’s stars last week, when author Nelly Arcan was found dead, allegedly by suicide, at her apartment in Montreal. Arcan wasn’t just any writer: she’s Canada’s version of Diablo Cody! Her autobiographical novel, Whore recounted her life as…well…a whore. Arcan (neé Isabelle Fortier) was raised in heavily Catholic community in rural Canada and, like many a good Catholic girl before her, was drawn to Montreal’s XXX scene when she moved to the for college. In Whore, her character Cynthia gives us a peek at the life of a young woman whose sexuality was stifled as a young adult but burst open like a pipe bomb with the help of an escort agency.

According to a survey of 15,000 women, German men are considered the worst lovers in bed, thanks to poor hygiene, while “lazy” Englishmen and “too quick to finish” Swedes came in second and third. Latin men are apparently the best in bed, with Spanish men, Brazilians, and Italians coming in first, second, and third. OnePoll.com determined the results after polling women in 20 countries on the best and worst lovers of other nations and then asking them to explain their reasoning. For the full list of the men ranked, click after the jump. Keep reading »
Cha-ching. Word on the street is that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom banked $300K selling the exclusive rights to their wedding photos to OK! Magazine. That’s not too shabby for a week’s work. Could this be why they super fast-tracked their nuptials? [The Fab Life]
While that sounds like a lot of money for pics of Lamar smearing cake in Khloe’s face, this is actually kind of a bargain-basement price. Here’s what other celebs made for their wedding photos. Keep reading »
OK, so if you think about hippie ear plugs and rapper swag style, man jewelry hasn’t really gone anywhere. (Mewelry? Guylery? Man bling? Mling? But we digress …)
According to The New York Times‘ The Moment blog, man earrings are coming back from their heyday in the ’90s, and this time, with a slightly different flavor. Used to be, guys might pierce an ear to signify sexual preference. Left means straight; right means gay gay gay. Apparently, however, recent fashions haven’t necessarily advertised sexuality so much as style. Rag & Bone decked out its guy models with piercings for its recent showing during Fashion Week. (OK, slightly ambiguous).
