Last year marked a confluence of events both real (Eliot Spitzer and Ashley Dupre) and thinly fictionalized (Showtime’s “Secret Diary of A Call Girl”), that arguably made 2008 the Year of the Prostitute. A cache of articles glamorizing the oldest profession in recent months, combined with the economic tailspin, has put a question you might once have asked yourself in your darkest hour firmly at the fore: Would you sell your ass for money? Sure, the prospect of exchanging your goodies (and we’re not just talking sex, but any sort of sexual activity) for goods still carries stigma, and the feminist positions for and against are as numerous and complicated as the positions in the Kama Sutra. But the more attention the topic gets on the national stage, the less it stays a dirty little secret. Two women’s takes on the matter, after the jump… Keep reading »
Before I start, I want to tell my current boyfriend something. Babe, I did not cheat on you while I was in Chicago.
Now that that’s out in the open, let’s begin. You went on vacation, you met some hot guy, you [insert excuse here] that you had a boyfriend, and you [insert what you did with hot dude]. I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to tell you what you should do — and what I did – afterward. Confess. Keep reading »
There were plenty of interpretations of Beyonce’s song “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” so it’s nice that “If I Were A Boy” is finally getting some parody love. In this video, Pinocchio ponders what it would be like to be a real boy. Keep reading »
A few years ago, I had a terrible haircutting accident that resulted in a most unfortunate mullet. I tried various ways of camouflaging the mullet — headbands, scarves, hats, hiding my head inside a pillowcase — without much success. Finally, I came to the realization that if I ever hoped to look normal again, I’d have to cut off my hair and start all over again, and so, just two days before my 30th birthday, I got the shortest pixie cut ever. It’s been nearly 2 ½ years since that fateful day, and after a few brief pit stops at various short styles, my hair is finally long enough again that I can worry about getting it in food while I eat. Thankfully, rather than go back to my short cut, there’s this handy dandy Noodle Eater’s Hair Guard that will effectively keep my hair out of my lunch. Sure, I could just wear a headband or pull it back, but neither of those options makes a statement quite like the Noodle Eater’s Hair Guard does, which, of course, says, “Yeah, my hair’s long now, so suck it.” [via Interior Design Boom] Keep reading »
Listen, I’m not going to attempt to explain this video. What does it all mean? I have no clue. One thing is for sure. It’s fascinating. On Fox 2 News in Detroit, a sexpert takes to the airwaves for a segment called “The Love Doctor” to reveal what the intimate relationship of Michelle and Barack Obama is really like. Kiki T has already gone there, but I’m down for a second opinion. Fox’s sexpert says there’s a lot of affection between them. “They do a lot of touching,” she says, “kissing,” she continues, “even fisting.” WHAT??? What did she just say??? She said fisting! Wait, does she mean fisting or fisting? Whichever, I can’t imagine George and Laura did a lot of that in the White House. Keep reading »
Perfumes that waft the scent of rose petals and jasmine, your time is up. What we would normally consider to be a not-so-sexy scent is now being bottled up, sold, and just might be the new aphrodisiac. Say goodbye to the conventional perfumes like Chanel No. 5 and Ralph Lauren’s Romance. New to the market are more unique perfumes with a totally bizarre top-notes. Photographer Nick Knight is working on a scent called Violence, which is supposed to smell like sweat. Gag! Keep reading »
