Would You Buy A $2,000 Vibrator?

Well, I’ve heard of some upscale vibrators, but this one really takes the cake. According to Stuff, a New Zealand woman shelled out $2,229 to become the first person in the country to buy an 18-karat gold vibrator that was created by the high-end sex toy company LELO. The style of the vibe is called Yva, and it was specially “flown in especially for the anonymous buyer.” So much for that whole recession thing! I can’t imagine spending that much money on a sex toy. A pair of shoes? Sure. But not a vibrator, even if it is gold-plated. [Stuff] Keep reading »

Porn Mag For Women Has One Big Problem

We love the idea, in theory, of a porn magazine for women. Unfortunately, Filament, a British for-women-by-women porn mag, is having a lot of troubles. First, the above-the-waist photos of “feminine” male models, which Filament‘s editors said academic research proved women are attracted to, were not pornographic enough for us. Sorry, but Rufus Wainwright clones don’t make us hot. Fortunately, the mag listened to the complaints and is trying to, um, fluff their content by including guys with erections in the next issue. But now Filament‘s publisher has stated it will not allow them to print pictures of aroused men. [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Black People Like To Tan Too!

How narrow-minded of Jezebel to question why a black pageant contestant would need a spray tan! Sure, Victoria’s mother on “Toddlers & Tiarasis feeding into the overly-primped beauty ideal that is plaguing child beauty pageants, but to assume that she was overdoing the pageant preparation because she was tanning her already brown child is plain wrong. News flash: some black folks do enjoy tanning. It’s one of my most relaxing summer pastimes, which I learned from my mother who is about Victoria’s complexion. And yes, there are varying degrees of darkness, but what I like is the golden undertone that safe(r) tanning gives me. Maybe next time Jezebel will be more open-minded when it comes to child beauty pageants and just hate on them like every other rational-thinking person. Keep reading »

You Know You Want It: “Tool Academy 2″

Ah, “Tool Academy.” Quite possibly one of the most awesomely awful shows on TV — and I mean that in a good way. Dedicated to seeking out guys who act like tools and sending them off to Tool Academy for an inner and outer makeover with their fed-up girlfriends, VH1′s reality dude show is one of my favorites. Why? I do not know. I guess there’s something deeply appealing about seeing total jerks being turned into better men. There are too many guys out there with spray tans, spiked hair, and man thongs for this country not to need a show like this. In any case, as it turns out, there’s a “Tool Academy 2″ on the way! And this season actually looks more obnoxious. Check out the latest batch of tools here. Premieres August 31. Keep reading »

There’s no shame in renting. Owning a home is good and all, but it definitely comes with a certain amount of responsibility, financial and otherwise.

Now, Scarlett joins Pete Yorn in a video for the single “Relator,” from their collaborative album, “Break Up.” Keep reading »
