Mike Alvear wrote a two-part series on how to tell a man or a woman he or she is bad in bed. For dudes, he suggests they repeatedly ask their ladies what she likes in bed in hopes she’ll get the hint and ask what he likes. He also advises bringing up the conversation casually while ready the morning paper (not in bed and definitely not just after sex), and telling a woman what you want more of and not less of. For women, he makes the same suggestions, but advises them to have their conversation side-by-side and not face-to-face since, he says, men are intimidated by eye contact. His advice is OK, but it’s a little passive-aggressive. I get that it’s a fine line to tiptoe, but with a gentle touch a little constructive criticism never killed a guy. After the jump, five ways to let your guy know his “skills” leave a little to be desired. Keep reading »
Our usual “Gossip Girl” recapper, Sara B., is off this week, so Simcha stepped in to analyze the season finale’s style.
Finale, it has happened to me! Last night was the last episode of “Gossip Girl.” As if the writing hasn’t already gotten patchy (honestly, if “GG” was hackable, why wouldn’t you delete the rumors you didn’t want published?), now they’re heading into the dreaded college years. Sigh. On the upside, the death knell was the hot jam “Zero” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But while the teens may have graduated high school, there were some major fashion fails on the show. Like Serena lazily tacking her tassel into her hair. WTF? So, let’s rich bitch it up together, shall we?

It must be nice to be a lovely blond starlet sunbathing on the coast of France — except for that part when someone with a dodgy-looking butt tattoo tries to rub sunscreen on you. [France, 5/19/09] Keep reading »

“I compare sex to a football game. There are games of different leagues, great and wonderful as well as boring and hopeless.”

If Red Bull gives you wings, than Drank, a new relaxation beverage, gives you the power to stop flapping them. Touted as a chill pill in a purple can, Drank doubled 7-Eleven’s sale expectations during the bev’s testing phase, and its profits were up 198% last year. But before you crack open a can, check out what’s inside the calming potion: Melatonin, rose hips, and valerian root. Melatonin “controls the human sleep cycle,” according to the company’s website, rose hips give you an antioxidant boost, and valerian root tames anxiety and helps the central nervous system get in chill mode. Ahhh, I feel relaxed already.
Oh, but wait, some doctors aren’t buying it. “I would not recommend it,” David DiPersio, clinical pharmacist at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center said. He says valerian root is known to cause seizures. Now if I ever pick up a can, I’ll be too freaked out to chillax. Keep reading »
Designer dress? Check. Perfect hair? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Fur? Check. Anna brought everything to the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala. [NYC, 5/18/09] Keep reading »
Ah, the mainstreaming of pornography. You never know who will be inspired by what! Take, for example, this charming new ad campaign from Quiznos. Perhaps you’ve seen “2 Girls 1 Cup,” the most grossest, disgustingest pornographic video ever made? Well, these new ads hawking the Quiznos subway sandwich feature “2 Girls 1 Sub” in a stank homage to the gross-out video that inspired a million memes. I like how the soundtrack sounds like farts. So … fitting. We think this is the best Quiznos ad ever — since they tried to get that guy to have sex with one of their ovens, that is. Keep reading »
