It’s easy to trash chick flicks, like Marisa Meltzer did this week at The Daily Beast. They set false expectations for women. The actresses are capable of more serious work. Blah blah blah blah blah….
But formulaic as the genre is known to be, you’ll still find us front row at the latest “He’s Just Not That Into Your Confessions Of 27 Dresses Bride Wars In The City” release. Chick flicks—gasp!—have redeeming value and we’re not afraid to say it.
After the jump, 10 things we lurve about the lady flicks. Keep reading »
At Port Chester High School in New York, officials have signed off on a new service that has lots of folks up in arms. They’ll now be offering free STD and pregnancy testing to any student who asks … without parental consent or notification. While many people are squirming in their seats thinking about the moral and religious implications of this decision, I gotta say woo hoo! Here’s why. Keep reading »
I was twenty-nine, single again after a five-year marriage, and a virgin. When I met my now ex-husband Mike, I had just turned 21. We met at small Catholic liberal arts college, and even though I no longer believed in Jesus, the Saints, the Bible, God, really any of that. I was a virgin then, and I was a virgin when we divorced.

It is not Halloween; therefore, it is not appropriate to be dressed as a middle-aged Rihanna. ["The Real Housewives of Atlanta" Premiere Party, Atlanta, GA, 7/28/09] Keep reading »
“More than anything, I want this documentary to be a lesson to young girls. If a private, intimate moment that was never intended to be made public — it could happen to them also. It’s something that haunts me to this day. It’s embarrassing to know the whole world has seen the sex tape….I want young girls to never put themselves in that situation I was in. Don’t ever let someone talk you into doing something you don’t want to do.”

Come to think of it, it’s hard to think of an example of airbrushing gone right, but this London Fog incident is certainly disturbing. According to WWD, the company, which shot the campaign at the beginning of Gisele’s pregnancy, decided to erase her pregnant stomach in order to “respect her privacy.” It seems parent corporation Iconix, who also owns Rampage, transferred the supermodel to their London Fog division so she could wear trench coats instead of tight-fitting jeans. Is this some kind of bizarre maternity discrimination? If they were so concerned about hiding her pregnancy, why did they have to shoot her naked beneath said coat? And most importantly, how freakin’ weird does this ad look? [WWD]

I’ve learned a lot of things from the women in my life. How to appreciate wine, do my own taxes, not be a douchebag. And because of them, I am a fan of Pinot Noir, keep a shoebox of receipts, and am a fan of Pinot Noir. But more on this later.
Sex without dirty talk is a bland affair, like chicken nuggets without the hot mustard. Without that whispered verbal communication and the trust that goes with it, body and mind aren’t connected. No, I’m not getting all Deepak Chopra all up in this joint. Sex is a brain thing as much as a skin thing. Without uncensored, honest, blushing dirty talk in bed (or the backseat, stairwell, or under the kitchen table) there is no way to find out if she needs it faster or slower. You’d never learn that she likes her hair pulled to the left, while you softly kiss her jaw line on the right side of her face. Apparently, there’s a world of difference between a flick and a pinch. These are important facts, and the reverse is true when you’re with your man. Keep reading »
There is a new fashion movie coming out on September 24th. It is called “RAGE.” It looks full-on ridiculous. With the aid of many colored backdrops and pseudo-deep statements from interviewees at the scene, a blogger working in a New York fashion house records the events surrounding a murder. Starring the likes of a tranny-fied Jude Law, model Lily Cole (still attempting to act!), Judi Dench being generally awesome, and Steve Buscemi making you feel skeevy, the thing is jam-packed with celebrities you never wanted to see together in one movie. Check out the trailer above and what we loved about it, after the jump… Keep reading »
Warning: Do not have sex with this bottle. Granted, after a couple tequila shots you can get me to do pretty much anything … but Caramba Tequila doesn’t want drunk goggles to make us suck the wrong thing. So, head, er, heed their new ad and only enjoy the worm at the bottom, not the container. [WOW Report] Keep reading »
