James Bond Was One Gentleman Who Preferred Brunettes

Britain’s most famous secret service agent doesn’t prefer blondes. James Bond is way more likely to bed a brunette, according to a group of researchers who set out to determine what traits 007 liked in his women. The researchers assessed the physical traits of 195 female actresses who had spoken or appeared in two or more scenes in each film from “Dr. No” (1962) to “Die Another Day” (2002)—20 films in total. The team contrasted the characteristics of the 98 Bond Girls who ended up in the spy’s arms with the 97 female characters that weren’t so lucky. “Every Bond film has multiple female characters who variously tempt, distract, and assist James in his latest mission,” said team leader Kimberly Neuendorf, a professor at Cleveland University. “At least one ‘Bond girl’ is particularly striking—a woman with an adventurous nature, cunning attributes, strong potential for romantic entanglement with Bond, and a sense of self-assurance, whose name—Pussy Galore, Honey Ryder, or Holly Goodhead, for example—is as provocative as the character she portrays.” Check out the researchers’ unexpected findings after the jump.

Magazine Aims To Sex Up The Bible

Be honest, when was the last time you cracked open a Bible? I read it for the first time in college and only because my professor made me. But peeps from a publishing company called Illuminated World want to make God’s diary more…enticing to the unsaved. These publishers have created Bible Illuminated: The Book. This glossy, magazine-style book (which retails for $35) has given the Bible a major facelift. With big photographs and pop culture references galore, this sexy page turner is meant to appeal to more than just religious folk. Recognizable characters have been replaced with celebs like Angelina Jolie, Bono, and Muhammed Ali and concepts like pain and suffering are illustrated by recent photos of sickness in Africa instead of Jesus on a cross. What do you think? Is turning the Bible into a glossy magazine blasphemy or brilliant? [Bible Illuminated] Keep reading »

Quickies!: Heidi And Spencer Pratt Are Not Being Tortured.

  • Heidi and Spencer’s Costa Rican experience has certainly not been the pampered one they’re used to, but it doesn’t constitute “torture,” either. [TMZ] — Just check out their sweet digs above.
  • Tila Tequila wrote on her MySpace account that she is angry about false pregnancy reports…even though she was the one who allegedly started them. She then said, “Maybe I was pregnant, or maybe I wasn’t pregnant.” [People] – Is anyone else as confused as I am?
  • Mariah’s latest movie, “Tennessee,” hit an all-time low, averaging just five viewers per showing. [Perez] — Stop making movies, Mariah. Isn’t having a five-octave vocal range enough?

John Stamos Bringing “Full House” To A Theater Near You

John Stamos is bringing down the house…more like “Full House.” The sitcom’s star is working on a plan to bring Uncle Jesse and the gang back to the big screen for a “Full House” movie, but don’t expect Ashley and Mary-Kate to take turns sucking on a pacifier. Stamos is recasting the show for the film version, which he told The New York Daily News “would probably take place in the early years of the sitcom,” which graced TVs across the country from 1987 to 1995. Stamos hopes James Franco will slick up his hair and take over his role as Uncle Jesse. He’d love for Steve Carell to channel Bob Saget as papa Danny Tanner, and for Tracy Morgan to get goofy as best friend Joey Gladstone. After the jump, some of our suggestions for Stamos and whatever lucky writer gets to pen this script. Keep reading »

Billy Elliot’s Ballet-Inspired Fashion

billy eliot slide 1 jpg
People don’t always think of ballet and style as belonging in the same category, but that’s just because they haven’t obsessively scrutinized ballet-wear. Now that “Billy Elliot” has snagged the Tony for Best Musical (along with a slew of other trophies), I think that is going to change. Here are the biggest ballet-inspired fashions you have actually been wearing since you saw your first Nutcracker.

The old-school trend from Swan Lake is clearly the headband. It is only recently, however, that feathers have become trendy. Too bad feathers weren’t in when I danced this ballet many years ago. It’s tougher than you think to pull off the molten look.

Ask The Astrosexologist: Fighting For The Top In A Polyamorous Relationship

Please help, I can’t tell who the true top in my relationship is! I’m an Aquarian woman (2/6/72, 3:51 pm, Providence, RI) who has been dating a Virgo man (9/11/66, 1:59 am, Concord, NH) for four months. He told me he loved me within a week of dating, and has not hidden the fact that he would love to get married. We slept together on the first date, even though he has only been with a couple of women and claims to be very against casual hookups (I admit to seducing him). We are both extremely kinky, and have great sexual chemistry.

My question involves which one of us is really the top. I’m an extremely dominant female, and he is very much the man’s man. While he seems to love his rightful place underneath me, sometimes he turns the tables on me out of the blue and pulls rank as the man of the house. I like both apparent sides to his personality coin, but I do worry that perhaps he’s allowing me to do things he doesn’t enjoy because he cares for me so much. I sense a hidden romantic under his tough exterior. I’m also already married to a woman, and although they have always known about each other (my wife and I are polyamorous), he does get jealous at times and I wonder if he will eventually push me to choose him or her. – Aroused Aquarian Keep reading »

Remote Control: “Weeds,” “I’m A Celebrity,” “Top Chef Masters,” And “True Blood”

Back in the day, summer television was all repeats and the only reason to watch was to finally see that episode of “Melrose Place” your VCR messed up recording. Luckily, the dark ages are over and summer nights are now filled with good shows. Okay, so it may not classify as “good,” but “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here” has your back Mondays through Thursdays. Meanwhile, two of our favorite shows, “Weeds” and “True Blood” are both starting up this week. And you’ll want to catch the premiere of “Top Chef Masters,” which is kind of like regular “Top Chef” mixed with “Iron Chef.” After the jump, your television sked for the week. Keep reading »

Swiss Army Wants You To Smell Like Efficiency

Victorinox, purveyors of Swiss Army knives and all manners of utilitarian items, is no longer content with being confined to outdoorsy devices. They’ve moved into the scent market with the recent release of Swiss Unlimited, an eau de toilette that smells like “Swiss essence with notes of wooded silver fir, alpine herbs, and absinthe.” So rejoice, you can now smell like nature and illegal, hallucinogenic alcohol any time you want! And because the handy-dandy bottle—which looks more like a flask than a perfume container—comes with a carabiner, you’ll never be without the option of freshening up, even when stranded in the woods being mauled by a grizzly bear.

Which Celebs Should Asexuals Look Up To?

It’s like a word association game. Say the word “asexual” and the first thing people say is Clay Aiken. Poor Clay got stuck as the poster boy for asexuality when he told New York magazine that he had no libido.

“I just don’t have an interest in … any of that at all. I have got too much on my plate. I’d rather focus on one thing and do that when I can devote time to it, and right now, I just don’t have any desire. I think maybe I don’t [have sexual urges]! I mean, not really. I’ve just kind of shut it off, maybe. Is that bad?”

Now we know Clay is actually a gay man and the only thing he had “shut off” were his homosexual desires.

But with such confusing messages about asexuality, is it any wonder that “Awkward,” a 19-year-old woman who wrote to Professor Foxy, Feministing’s sex advice expert, was really confused by her complete lack of a libido? “Awkward” thinks she is asexual, but wondered how do you actually know?
