I am admittedly not the most athletic lady alive. Last time I was on wheels was at a friend’s 8-year-old birthday party at the local roller rink. I held onto the outside rail and eventually ditched the rink altogether to eat a soft pretzel on the sidelines. That’s why I am obsessed with the roller derby, which the New York Times is dubbing a new trend even though it’s been back with a vengeance for years. It’s awesome to watch girls tearing it up out there on the rink—even if I can’t. From the punk-meets-club kids style to the quirky team names (Texecutioners, Mason Dixon Roller Vixens), roller derby is faster and sexier than it was in the ’70s. Here’s what you need to know about “jamming.” [New York Times] Keep reading »
I just had the biggest WTF moment watching this promotional video for the Divided Salli Saddle Chair. It’s designed like a saddle with a slit in the middle and it’s supposed to be good for the lower back…and more importantly your genitals. The idea seems intelligible: it’s a chair that mimics your standing posture. Cool. Except that the video isn’t even a pinch of cool. Watching that close-up of the dude in spandex tea bagging the chair was just not okay. Skip to the 1:35 mark if you want your ears to squirm at hearing the most awkward pronunciation of the words ‘testicle’ and ‘penis’ ever. I dare you! Keep reading »
Hiiiiiya! You’ve heard about the life-saving purse and the real miracle bra, but now one manufacturer has dared to wonder: Ladies, are you sick of carrying a giant bag and wearing an underwire brassiere while you fend off bad guys? Well, then Foxy Brown, your day has finally arrived thanks to the Tactical Corset. This part purse, part bra, part bullet proof vest is not your great grandma’s corset. It zips on and comes with built-ins like a lipstick case, handcuff pouch, pistol holster, a whip slot, and a pepper spray holder all to help you fight off the men who will want to jump your bones once they see you in this functional little number! A woman has always got to be prepared for a variety of action. [Fark]

We love to watch men fight for our attention, especially male models! Thanks to the creative geniuses at Paper Magazine, “The Friday Night Throwdown” pitted professional hotties, like Abercrombie & Fitches’ Zac Taylor and D&G’s Nick Lemons, against real boxers in the ring. While they got their beautiful butts handed to them, we say any shirtless man is a winner. [The Cut]

This weekend, I was taking a cooking class with a friend when I was overcome with annoyance that my lips were chapped and my lip balm was tucked inside my purse all the way across the room. “Grr, I need lipbalm!” I whispered. “No problem!” my friend replied, reaching down the front her shirt and whipping out a tube of Chapstick.
We’re good enough friends that I don’t have any qualms with using Chapstick that was nestled between her bosoms (she later explained that the bra she was wearing is so roomy that she can store stuff inside the cups); but for those ladies who would prefer to store their miscellaneous crap alongside their own titties, there’s this miraculous invention: the Joey Bra! The Joey Bra has build-in pockets for stowing away everything from your credit cards to your iPhone, with no one the wiser. Why didn’t anyone think of this before? Genius! I’ll have to tell my friend to get one — as soon as she gets properly sized, that is. [$19.99, Joey Bra]
All bras are not created equal! Let’s take a look at some other over-the-shoulder boulder holders than dare to be different.
There are no words. Other than, I swear I was not there, don’t believe a word anyone tells you. [via DListed] Keep reading »

This month’s Elle Magazine has kind of a good idea. Rather than logging on to Match.com or waiting to bump into a hottie at the grocery store, start scoping men at charity fundraisers. Why? Because if they care about a cause you do, then you already have something in common and an easy way to start a conversation. And since they had to buy a reasonably expensive ticket to get in, they’re bound to be a little more together than the guy you’d meet at your local dive bar. And, hey, if there’s no one there to your liking, no biggie—enjoy yourself and know you’re supporting a good cause. While I’m not saying to go to fundraiser events as a way of boyfriend shopping, I am saying that if you get an invite to a gala or come across something you’d like to support, it may not hurt to test the waters.

Talk about a panty raid. Thomas Williams, a 25-year-old Ohio guy, was sentenced to nine years in prison today after stealing underwear from about 20 women since 2006. He got caught in April, as he trolled for new victims on Facebook, and when the police searched his house, they found more than 300 pairs of women’s underwear! In the end, he plead guilty to eleven felonies, including nine counts of burglary and misdemeanor voyeurism. He’ll be able to apply for probation after four and a half years. [AssociatedPress]
Um, don’t guys know that they can buy used panties on Craigslist? But more importantly, WTF? Why does a guy need 300 pairs of underwear for, unless he’s building a ship sail or insulating his house? Still, this crime surely isn’t worth nine years of his life. Williams is in counseling now, so do you think he got what he deserved, or do you think it’s a tad harsh for an unhinged panty-raider?
