I believe this “Should you bring it up?” flow chart offers some sound advice. There are appropriate times and inappropriate times for that serious convo with your S.O. Hint: not when you’re drunk or tired. Those tend to turn into arguments. I’m a big fan of serious talks over breakfast … after the coffee has hit your bloodstream, of course.

“I guess you could call [my views on sex and relationships] conservative. I think there is a lost art to being a woman. … I have this romantic part to my nature and maybe that’s why I find it difficult when I see this kind of vulgar approach to women today. I think there’s too much homage being paid to pole dancers, let’s put it that way. I mean I’m all for body beautiful but my God there’s a head attached. Can we use that too? Come on girls!”
— ’60s bombshell Raquel Welch might have been an international sex symbol, but she is actually quite horrified at what she sees as over-sexualization of women today. After the jump, Raquel gives PopEater a piece of her mind about Brazilian bikini waxes and why the ’60s feminist movement was “uncharitable” — i.e. dismissive — towards her. Keep reading »
It’s been over 30 years, but I still remember the day Jenny Talbot caught me staring at her boobs.
Jenny and I sat next to each other in a couple of classes. We weren’t exactly friends, but friendly; she helped me in math, I helped her in social studies. One day, Jenny and I were working together on a project, our desks and bodies facing. Though she usually wore sweaters, this spring day she wore just a V-neck T-shirt.

I was not quite 14, and in a near constant state of arousal; the sight of a bra strap was, frequently, enough to produce an erection. With Jenny distracted by her work, I had a free close-up view of the kind I’d rarely had. So I stared. Keep reading »
“Keep calm and carry on” was a morale-raising British slogan during World War II that’s now stamped on everything from posters to cushions to chocolate bars. But if there’s one thing we love more than kitsch, it’s pandas! An Etsy seller named Steppie has printed a sweet panda bear’s face on American Apparel Ts and tanktops for a playful twist on the traditional message. Keep calm and carry on? We’d much rather keep calm and panda on.
A few weeks ago, my brother and I were looking at old family pictures and we came across a photo of my dad in the ’70s. He was wearing giant Terry Richardson-style glasses, short shorts, some kind of subversive message T-shirt, and rocking a full beard. We looked at each other, and I whispered, “Oh my god. Was our dad the first hipster?” My brother quickly filed the picture away, saying, “We can’t let the government know about this.”
According to an awesome new Tumblr, Dads: The Original Hipsters, my dad’s not the only one. From bearded beer-brewers to deep V-neck wearers, the baby boomer generation was chock full of hipsters who had no idea they were hipsters. Was your dad one of them? Submit a photo and let the world know. Keep reading »
