Just imagine how excited your comic book geek will be when he sees your Wonder Woman boy shorts. Don’t be surprised if he puts on a cape and starts chasing you around the room! That should make for a frisky good time. [$8, TopShop.com] Keep reading »
Over at Nerve.com, Steve Almond takes on VH1′s “Rock of Love” and asserts the latest installment in the reality TV series, “Rock of Love Bus,” is, basically, pornography. According to Almond, the show is “eerily like a porn film,” absent, he says, feeling or intimacy, while everyone stands around groping and tonguing each other, nevertheless, and totally misogynist. But is “Rock of Love” misogynist — or reality? Keep reading »
After nearly a year of wondering when and on what channel we’d next see our beloved “Project Runway,” the companies involved have reached a settlement, and the show will make Lifetime its new home beginning with the sixth season this summer.
During the first five seasons of PR, we basically lived for the show. One time, I had it in my head that the show was going to be on at 9 p.m., not 10 p.m., and had to stay at the gym for an extra hour because I didn’t want to miss part of the episode when it finally came on (at its usual time, or course) by leaving to go home. But now that “Project Runway” is coming back, I’m not excited. Keep reading »
Most of the time, pillow talk isn’t supposed to be funny, but sometimes it is. And, other times, it’s painfully awkward. The new site Said in Bed compiles real people’s quotes said before, during, or after sex. Our favorite on the site so far:
“Doesn’t it feel good?” she said.
“Doesn’t it feel good to Payless?” he said.

“The Virgin Daughters” is a documentary directed by Jane Treays (which aired in the U.K. last year) that follows a group of fathers and daughters as they prepare to attend a Purity Ball in Colorado Springs. I’m not sure if or when it will air in the U.S., but you can watch clips online and feel the creepiness. Apparently, one in six girls in the U.S. makes a pledge to her father to remain a virgin until marriage. In the documentary, Treays interviews a family with five daughters, all of whom have or will make a purity pledge to their dad, who says that strong male figures are at the core of this tradition. Gag. His eldest daughter remained a virgin until marriage, but, get this, she also didn’t kiss or hold hands with her fiance until their wedding day. [Channel4.com] Keep reading »
Supposedly, Rihanna can’t decide whether to take Chris Brown back after he allegedly beat the crap out of her in February, so she has reportedly demanded he publicly apologize to her on “Oprah.” Rihanna has been talking to Oprah Winfrey on a regular basis since the media mogul cautioned the singer against reconciling with Chris. But a public apology really won’t help Rihanna make up her mind because either she believes he’s remorseful or not. This just sounds like a bad idea for all three parties involved. Keep reading »
Some girls have a thing for guys who can dance, others like muscle men. We heart guys who wear glasses. This is probably because we’re huge nerds. Plus, it’s kind of sexy when a man takes off his frames, like Clark Kent becoming Superman. Who wants to hang out at the library with me this weekend?
…or that’s a look of desperation, as she probably cannot walk. [Photoshoot for German Vogue, Los Angeles, 4/1/09] Keep reading »
Amanda Hess at the Washington City Paper has a bone to pick with feminism. “If I have to endure another essay on the mysteries of the female orgasm in the name of feminism, I may never have an orgasm again,” she writes in “Why Sex Positivity Is Bad For Feminism.” She writes in reference to the Visions in Feminism conference, an annual feminist symposium held at American University, having picked PhD’d porn star Annie Sprinkle as their keynote speaker. While the conference aims to address a wealth of issues — domestic violence, queer feminism, etc. — it ends on a “sex positive” note. “A sex positive polyamorous pansexual bi-gendered individual who enjoys nothing more than talking about and/or having sex” is doing a workshop, followed by Sprinkle’s presentation. I’m gonna give this a resounding “eww.” Why does sex positivity always sound so ickily intellectual? Way to kill my girl boner. Keep reading »
