Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their split less than a month ago, and Jon certainly didn’t waste any time getting with a new girl. Meanwhile, Kate continues to wear her wedding band. Is Jon cruel for moving on so fast, or is Kate just slow at accepting the fact that her marriage is over? This got us thinking about our rules for rebounding the right way. Keep reading »
While many fear that America is falling out of the marriage habit, and that, these days, all is bad in love and more, new stats show otherwise. Supposedly, 86% of women marry by age forty. This says something, considering that a 20-year-old article in Newsweek declared that “a 40-year-old single woman had a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than getting married.” Ouch.

Not long ago, we told you about how American Apparel introduced a new line of jersey bedding. My first thought was innnn-teresting. Next brainwave: Why the hell do I want a set of jersey sheets? Sure, jersey sheets (t-shirt sheets for those not trolling the aisles of Bed, Bath & Beyond on their Sunday mornings) are insanely affordable and can feel (when they’re new) like the inside of a just-purchased sweatshirt before the first wash—but I just can’t get into them. For two reasons… Keep reading »
Even the ever-gorgeous Daria Werebowy can’t save the cover of this month’s French Vogue from looking more like a catalogue than a high fashion magazine. Where experimental makeup and avant-garde outfits usually reign, now there’s only garish Burberry plaid and khaki. And a bucket hat. The whole thing is so boring and un-fashion-y that we thought it was maybe a joke, the cover of the next Bloomingdale’s catalogue masquerading as the glorious fashion tome that [usually] is French Vogue. Sadly, it’s legit. [Maybe Carine meant it to be ironic? Or they just really owed advertiser Burberry a fave.-- Editor] Keep reading »
Yesterday, we suggested to you some sexy, pornographic reads from the Victorian Era. In today’s installment of alternative ways to get your porn: sleazy 60s novels. These series started flourishing just as sexual morals were finally loosening up—when Elvis captured America’s heart (and loins), and Nabokov’s Lolita was finally accepted as a non-pornographic work. While there are a bevy of options out there, the titles from Liverpool Library Press are particularly raunchy (and hilarious). Far from being politically correct, the quick reads feature titles like The Panty Salesman, Family Love, and The Unholy Master. Yet those are tame in comparison to some of the downright offensive ones like Nazi Joy Camp, Apache Vengeance, Rape Riot, and A Family Sandwich. Okay, fine, maybe these are more hilarious than they are seductive.
While they’re out of print, you can still get your hands on copies via used and vintage booksellers. After the jump, some excerpts. Keep reading »
I can’t think of many things I’d love to be the first person to do, but officially changing my name to a web domain is not one of them. Claire Forshaw, on the other hand…. The 24-year-old from Manchester, England, has been approved by the Legal Deed Service to be called Princess-Rainbow.com. Oh yeah, forgot to mention that she not only wanted to have a URL as her name, but also, an absolutely ridiculous one! Princess-Rainbow.com said, “I know that if ever I got the chance I would change [my name] to a web domain, to hopefully become the first.” She also plans to use the actual domainto sell her art. Good luck with that! [Independent]
