A new Vatican website, Pope 2 You, has launched, and on it you’ll find an application called “The pope meets you on Facebook.” Yes, the pope is on Facebook. The Vatican is using social networking tools in an attempt to reach young believers. But you can’t “poke” him or write on his wall, so what’s the point? Lately, we’ve been asking the same thing about Facebook in general. After the jump, 11 reasons why Facebook is really dead. Keep reading »

Some female bloggers call the U.K. paper the Daily Mail the “Daily Fail” because the paper likes nothing more than to bait its readers, especially on its women’s interest “Femail” section. It’s the go-to source for incendiary articles about how bosses should distrust women who don’t have children and you can’t have a family and a career. Nope, we weren’t making those up.
But nevertheless, the paper is fascinating to us—especially a recent article about what it is supposedly like to be a French wife. We romanticized about the sexy accents, and yummy facial hair, but zut alors!, it sounds a bit like being the captive of a very demanding tyrant.
Read on for more tips from French wives… [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Pakistani Cricket player Shoaib Akhtar has been benched from playing in next month’s World Twenty20 tournament due to an injury. You’d think most fans would be satisfied with the word “injury” as an explanation, but the Pakistani Cricket Board decided it was cool to divulge in a freaking press release exactly what his “injury” was. Dude has genital warts. Since his wounds (way TMI) need treatment for another ten days, the board will have to appoint a replacement player. Now, we’re all for full disclosure, but it just seems wrong for the Cricket Board to announce to the world that Akhtar has genital warts. What will this mean for his ability to pick up cricket groupies? [GuardianUK]

Summer has (almost) arrived! You know what that means? It’s time to put down the Dostoyevsky and put that dogeared copy of “Siddhartha” back on the shelf — those books are for the damp, frigid winter — and pick up some trashy, sexy, and deeply enjoyable beach reading. Our first recommendation for your summer of pleasurable page turning? “Bought” by Anna David. The novel is a followup to “Party Girl,” and continues to follow the oh-so-exciting life of L.A. magazine writer, Emma Swanson. This time around, she’s writing a story about a high-class call girl and discovers some tricks of the trade in the process. But it’s not all fun and games, as Emma must contend with a moral quandry of her own. Hooked yet? [$14.99, Amazon]
We’re giving away five copies of “Bought” by Anna David, but you have to work if you want it in your beach bag. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, May 22 through Thursday, May 28—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

American Apparel’s Coming Soon section shows products that will be sold by the retailer in the near future. Along with an oversized hair bow, a shiny vinyl weekend bag, and a nylon spandex micro-mesh long sleeve button-up, the store is planning to offer “sheer luxe cut-out pantyhose.” The name is misleading. It’s not like these tights have a fancy cut-out pattern in them. No, there isn’t anything covering the wearer’s ass. I guess American Apparel knows what its clientele wants?

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily lead me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. And please, if you have a question, email me. You know I love to read your smut too! Now, let’s get this party started.
We all love to be rode hard and put away wet. But sometimes we’re enjoying the ride so much, we don’t realize we’re dry — bone dry. While that can be a good problem to have, it’s still a painful predicament that could have you getting out of bed even more bow-legged than usual. This week’s Dr. V was inspired by a cowgirl in this very pickle. How do you heal a raw hide after some gun play?

I often find myself writing about self-love, simply because I know that that is the key to accomplishing absolutely anything we want in life. Self-love breeds confidence, and once we’re confident, the sky’s the limit! I think that we tend to overcomplicate things, or get “stuck in the muck” of what happened in the past. Keep reading »
Ain’t love grand? Even though Pink wrote an entire album about her split from motorcross bad ass Carey Hart, and even dissed him to his face in her “So What” video, the pair is now happily back together and even renewed their vows in Australia this week. Pink is on tour promoting Funhouse, i.e. the breakup record. “It’s funny to sing those songs now,” says Pink. “He’s in the audience, so when I sing ‘He’s a tool,’ now that’s my favorite line. I’m like, ‘Hi honey, that’s you!’” Awkward.
Oh, but Pink isn’t the only rock star to totally diss a former lovah in a song, only to take their ex back. It’s as if money, power, readily available groupies, and an entire world cheering their empowerment on isn’t enough. After the jump, the most egregious examples. Keep reading »
