OK, so it’s the other kind of finger bang, but everything burlesque glamor girl Dita Von Teese does is sexy. And now Dita is the official spokesmodel for her own line of booze, “Cointreau Teese.” Drink it all in, people! [Hollywood, 7/22/09] Keep reading »

Study To Get To The Bottom Of Glass And Lesbian Drinking Habits

The University of Illinois College of Nursing just got three million dollars from the federal government to set the record straight about dykes and drinking. “Myths and stereotypes of lesbians as alcoholics and heavy drinkers are largely based on studies conducted in the 1970s that recruited most of their samples from gay bars,” Prof. Tonda Hughes said. She maintains the real drinking problem has nothing to do with being gay, but is encouraged by the usual social factors like sexual abuse and discrimination. So, back in 1999, she interviewed nearly 400 ladies who love to love ladies about their happy hour habits. Since, she’s been following up with them to check in on their boozin’. Now, as she preps to start the third round of her study, she hit the jackpot! With a few extra million dollars, Prof. Hughes will draw another 150 gals who are either Latino or African-American. “Our research is designed to provide a much more realistic picture of the patterns and variability of lesbians’ drinking,” Hughes promises. No matter the results, it’s a good thing someone out there is trying to prove that those Girls Gone Wild style lezzy profile pics aren’t the norm. [WBBM]

Our Brains Identify People By Their Eyes

You know that expression: “the nose knows?” Well, it’s all wrong, sort of. A study of 1,700 people revealed that it’s actually people’s eyes that help us nose out (ha!) who they are. We check out peeps peepers first because the brain is quick like that, scouting out the most important info and saving the fluff for later. In fact, we can identify people by looking at just their eyes. This is not the case for the nose or the mouth. Interesting, right? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Gallery: Celebrities Who’ve Gone Nakey In Photo Shoots

28 Sexy Celebs Strip Down & Get Naked In Print

Lana Del Rey is a music-world Svengali and she knows it. There’s nothing I can say about her that somebody hasn’t said already, and better than I ever could considering I’m all kinds of ambivalent about Lana: as a singer, as a performer, as a persona, as a human being (part of me isn’t quite convinced that she’s not computer-generated). It would seem that the songstress has some unexpected fans, however, at British GQ, where she was named 2012′s Woman Of The Year. And, shocker, she’s naked on the cover! The special issue depicts Lana stripped bare save for a face full of dramatic makeup and a body dripping with opulent jewels. There’s something about this first photo that is charming to me — she’s not posing provocatively or vamping it up, and she looks really pretty and totally vulnerable. I also think it’s nice to see that she isn’t whippet-thin and has, like, thighs and stuff. She just looks very soft and not at all like she’s starving. Looking good, Lana! [Refinery29]

This got us thinking about other celebs who’ve bared it all for the sake of a photo spread. Just for fun, we decided to give you a little peep show. Go ahead, look. You know you want to. 

India’s First Porn Cartoon Is Banned

Thousands in India are mourning the loss of a very “public” female icon. Animated Indian porn star Savita Bhabhi was admired for her beauty, her wifely obedience and … her various sexual exploits. The not-so-ordinary housewife allowed fans into her home to watch her get hot and heavy with the neighbors, her boss, and even a bra salesman. (Really?!) But, unfortunately, India’s first cartoon porn star has met her end. After discovering the popular site posting Savita’s animated escapades, the Indian Department of Telecommunications declared the site obscene and forever banned Savita and her raging libido. Fans tweeted the news of Savita’s end, inspiring numerous eulogies and showing the government that Savita was more than a website of raunchy animated sex. Women, sociologists, and media personalities praised Savita’s inhibitions as a symbol of freedom, women’s rights, and a new type of sexuality in India. Seriously, the government probably should have left the site up. Apparently, tech-savvy folks are already trying to relaunch Savita. And now she’s got that hot forbidden fruit factor! But, for now, we’ll have to wait and see if Savita makes her naughty return. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

What Is This Woman Trying To Say?

I love going to City Council meetings. No, not because I’m so interested in the politics and voting. I go because the open-mic policy means that there’s always some raving lunatic going on and on about something. Like this young woman in Santa Cruz, California, where Amelia went to school. (Coincidence?) What exactly is she trying to say? She wants healthy pesticides? And people can “make things cars?” And, apparently, she thinks we here on the East Coast are still in the Civil War era — because we have slaves? And the West Coast is for the Union? Also, growing food is free? And you can put things in the freezer, and they last forever? Trust me, just watch. It’s that good. Keep reading »

Crave: Muji Shower Radio

If you were to take a peek into our shower, you’d see loads of body gel cluttering the shower shelves, various cheapie drugstore shampoo and conditioner bottles, and one half-busted, grimy shower radio. Seriously, the thing is a petri dish for the green-black mold that we hope and pray isn’t slowly killing us with every get-clean session. (Not to mention, it’s from The Sharper Image circa 2005—no wonder that company shuttered all its stores!) Seeing that it’s a radio on its last legs, we’ve been dying for a newer, sleeker version. Behold: a very incognito shower radio (the “bottle” on the left in the photo) by Muji. We want. We need. [about $37, Muji] Keep reading »

We even caught a glimpse of her at Dior’s couture show, in a way. How to get the look, after the jump! Keep reading »

Reebok Pays Tribute To Jean-Michel Basquiat

Reebok showcases the Top Down model in its latest offerings paying tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the famous NYC street artist of the ’80s and ’90s. The sneakers feature several of Basquiat’s signature, Neo-expressionist paintings on turquoise ($99.56) and black/white ($113.78) backgrounds. They’re part of the fall 2009 collection but are already available at Colette. I’m not sure I’d wear these — I’m not a b-girl, you know — but I’d surely enjoy having these on a shelf as art.
