“So You Think You Can Dance” Continues To Shake It

One of my favorite summer shows is “So You Think You Can Dance.” Similar in structure to “American Idol” (only it’s a competition for, duh, dancers not singers), the talent is consistently a-mazing. This season’s crop of dancers are no different. On last night’s episode, season 2 runner-up, Travis Wall, choreographed this glorious little love story for dancers Jeanine and Jason. Check it out!

The World’s Oldest Penis Bone(r) Discovered

We’ve told you about legendary rock star penises and actor penises, but now we’re going to bring you: the world’s oldest prick! (No, it’s not Bob Barker.) The 400 million year old fossil was actually just discovered by the aptly named Australian palaeontologist Dr. Long (you just can’t make this crap up!). Anyhoo, his research team from the Museum Victoria found the prehistoric boner in some fish bones. The Devonian era fossil remarkably had something to hold onto. Published in the Nature journal, it was a breakthrough discovery that linked some “structures in the pelvic fin that suggested copulation” which is awesome because while they had uncovered lady bits, as Dr. Long put it, “we hadn’t found the business end of how they were doing it.” That is until now…

Marilyn Monroe’s Curves Got A Boost With Early Wonderbra Prototype

Marilyn Monroe’s old underwear is going up for auction this weekend and her bra alone is expected to fetch up to £2,000 (about $3,285). And you thought your bras were expensive! This is no ordinary bra though, of course. In addition to being worn by one of the most famous and arguably sexiest women of all time, it is considered to be a sort of early “Wonderbra” with all sorts of special pockets, cups, straps and ribbons that helped give the illusion that Marilyn was even bustier than she really was. Auctioneer Richard Davie said: “The bra looks very complicated at first glance and it actually has four cups inside it – sort of like an early Wonderbra. There’s an inner cup which it almost hidden, which would support her chest as normal. But then there’s an another larger cup about an inch further out, to give the impression she had a bigger chest.” Keep reading »

Is Generation Y Really Too Entitled?

As a Gen Xer from a middle class upbringing, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to all of the people who employed me before age 23. Confession: I am a reformed entitled worker. Although I’ve always worked, it wasn’t until reality hit me in my 20s that I really grew into my work ethic. When I was 15, I had my first job at dry cleaner’s tagging clothes. It was so hot and boring that I just HAD to quit. At 16, I was a hostess at Chili’s. I was fired by my college dropout, khaki-short-wearing manager after I came back from a weekend getaway to Venice Beach with a shiny, new nose ring. Lets just say that my nose ring was more important than my paycheck. At 17, I started working at Mrs. Field’s Bakery and came under fire for giving away too many free mochas to my friends and inventing a game that I called “baguette baseball.” My 43-year old manger, Eli, did not find it so entertaining. For most of college at NYU, I worked at a popular New York night club, where I got free drinks (even though I was only 19), made out with bad boys, and complained about not being 21. At my first internship at a record label, I was more invested in playing office pranks on my co-workers than learning anything. I sincerely thought my job was to make them laugh. Hey—my boss’ head taped to a beach ball WAS funny. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Bruno

Okay so not everyone loves Bruno (or even likes him), but you have to give him props both for his insane newfound mainstream popularity and willingness to make ridiculously bold fashion choices. He’s inspired us to live in a world of spandex, fur, sequins, and hot pants … all at once. Despite steadfastly refusing to take the subtle route, the beauty of Bruno is that he demonstrates that when it comes to taking style risks, confidence is everything. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: I’m A Pisces Addict!

I (1/22/89) have been in and out of a serious relationship with my ex (3/04/88) for almost two years. We hit it off right away, but I was leaving for a few months and he didn’t want to do a long distant thing. We dated anyway and things got very serious. After I left, he visited and asked me out. I tried to keep the relationship light, despite my feelings, because I was young and we were far away. However, the biggest problem was he had mood swings and got really nasty. We had one big fight and broke up, but he said he still had feelings for me. We continued to date without having a title because he did not want to. Keep reading »

The “Women Commandoes” Of Iran

There is no doubt that women in Iran are at the forefront of the post-election protests. Now, the Iranian intelligence agency has finally given a name to these fierce females. On a website linked to Iran’s intelligence ministry, “women commandoes” is the term used to describe this strong female force. Apparently “woman commando #1” heading the women’s election protest for the “Green Movement” is said to be Zahra Rahnarvard, Mir Hossein Mousavi’s wife and popular activist. But a panel recently held at the Woodrow Wilson Center in DC about Iranian women’s role in election protests explained that the strong female outpouring the world is seeing now has always been around—cleverly hidden before through education and quiet organization. While many of these women in Iran are not part of the military the military-ish term “women commandoes” only shows just how powerful a force these women are. [The Nation] Keep reading »
