Is There A Sex Toy Double Standard?

I have … hold on, let me count … five vibrators. While I don’t flaunt them — i.e., they’re not laying out on my bedside table for guests to ogle — I don’t pretend not to have them. I am an empowered woman! I masturbate! I am the master of my own orgasm! Roar! Or rather, purrrrr

But I gotta admit, if a dude I liked confessed to using a sex toy, like, say, a Fleshlight, to masturbate, I would be weirded out. It’s hypocritical, no doubt, but I’m not alone. Am I part of a sex toy double standard? Keep reading »

Lily Allen’s Dad Made Conspiracy Theory Film About Princess Diana’s Death

Awhile ago, Lily Allen took to Twitter in a huff to complain she was not invited to the royal wedding, but it’s probably just as well. See, Lily Allen’s father, the comedian Keith Allen, produced and directed a conspiracy theory “documentary” called “Unlawful Killing” that alleges Prince Charles and the rest of the royal family were behind Princess Diana‘s death. Okay then! In “Unlawful Killing,” Princess Diana is reportedly heard on audio, telling someone on the phone, “If you’re a strong woman in my environment, you’re a problem. I’m a Hell of a problem. … [I have] no time for hobbies. Keeping alive is one of them.” OMG THAT TOTALLY PROVES CHARLES HAD HER KILLED. Just kidding. While I love a good conspiracy theory, the idea that Princess Diana was murdered by the royal family instead of killed by, you know, the drunk driver behind the wheel of her car seems pretty distasteful. Curious, though, that this is a subject near and dear to Keith Allen’s heart. “Unlawful Killing” has been banned in the UK and is set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival later this year. It was probably a good idea to sit Prince William‘s wedding out, Lily. [ONTD, RadarOnline] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Who Gets Abortions In The U.S.?

  • Who gets abortions in the U.S.? The Guttmacher Institute, a nonpartisan reproductive health organization, sought to profile the women who get abortions in this graphically-curious video released on April 28. Most women who are get abortions are in their 20s. Six out of 10 women who terminate a pregnancy already have kids and many have two or more kids. Needing to care for their existing children is often a primary reason for why women who already have kids choose to end a pregnancy. Three out of four women who have abortions describe themselves as religiously affiliated and Catholic women have abortions at approximately the same rate as women overall. In 2008, four out of 10 women who had abortions lived below the federal poverty line. White women account for 36 percent of abortions, followed by black women at 30 percent and Latinas at 25 percent.

  • A Texas cheerleader who was kicked off the team for refusing to cheer for her alleged rapist was denied a U.S. Supreme court review yesterday. Months ago, a federal appeals court said the young woman, known only as H.S., was cheering for her school and not for herself and therefore was obliged to follow the dictates of the team. H.S. claims she was raped in 2008 by Rakheem Bolton, a member of the football team, at a party. Bolton plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in 2010. Blech, what a gross story.
