As Patrick Swayze courageously battles cancer, his legendary spirit has lifted lots of Americans…literally. Thanks to the “Dirty Dancing” Lift Machine, lucky fans have been getting “Baby”-ed. Over two decades after Swayze splashed around with Jennifer Grey, making every girl swoon with jealousy, regular folks have experienced the “Time Of Their Life” and completed the glorious dance move immortalized in the final dance of the flick. While the machine won’t accidentally drop you in the water during practice like Swayze, we’re already wet from the idea of this romantic gesture, albeit mechanical.

If you didn’t make it to D.C. for any of the real inaugural balls, head to Dr. Suzy’s Speakeasy in LA on Jan. 24 for Dr. Susan Block’s Eros Day “Orgy for Obama.” From the looks of the invite, the event is actually an orgy, rather than merely an Obama love-fest. And — bonus! — if you’re not in LA this Saturday, you can watch the orgy live online, just like the Inauguration! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

With the proliferation of straight girl-on-girl action being popularized in the media — from “Girls Gone Wild” and Miley Cyrus’ sleepover kiss, to Katy Perry’s hit “I Kissed A Girl” and super-babe Megan Fox admitting she had a girlfriend — there has been a great change in the way female sexual orientation is perceived. It has become more of an open spectrum than a box. There is a clear upside to straight women making out with another woman without anyone batting an eyelash — we should all be free to do what and who we feel without judgment. However, Details magazine has tried to explain the downside. In the article, “Flirting With Disaster,” men recount how their lesbian fantasies became an obsession that turned into a variety of devastating scenarios. From the guy who pressured his girlfriend to the point that she felt violated, to a guy whose threesome dirty talk made his wife realize she was gay, sometimes taking a chance that seems irresistible can bring about the downfall of a relationship. However, the real problem here is that men often feel like they are responsible for and therefore dominate the desires and sexual expression of both people in a relationship.

Of course, we’re dying to know what designer she’s chosen, but we’re even more curious about the color of it after today’s surprising pale lemon (with green shoes). Keep reading »

Beyonce is charging $1,573 for VIP tickets to her tour to promote “I Am…Sasha Fierce.” Yes, you read that correctly…$1,573. VIP ticket holders get much more than premium seats to the concert — they also get VIP treatment, including a photo with the diva herself, a complimentary bar and a specially selected luxury dinner. Seems to me, an A-lister or someone with a lot of cheddar could finagle these perks on their own without having to fork over more money to Beyonce. I mean her album really isn’t that great. And anyone who would appreciate a one-year membership to the official Beyonce fan club really can’t shell out more than $1,500 to attend a concert because she’s probably a child or teenager.

Well that’s what U.S. radio stations want you to think after pressuring Britney Spears to change the title of her latest single, “If You Seek Amy,” which, when read phonetically, spells out “If” = F, “You” = U…get it? The title was meant to be sneakily suggestive, but truthfully, it wasn’t that sneaky. So changing the title to “If You See Amy” was pointless because everyone knows what it’s meant to be. Britney is still clinging to the idea that her music targets young women and schoolgirls, but I can’t think of one parent that would still allow her daughter to listen to Britney after all her scandals and emotional meltdowns. “All the boys and the girls are begging to If You Seek Amy” is the catchy chorus to the song, so clearly Britney is making music with adult themes. Now that a letter has been dropped, the lyrics and chorus make even less sense than they did before. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »
