In our science classes growing up, we learned about cell reproduction, animal reproduction and, of course, human reproduction. We wish Isabella Rossellini’s “Green Porno” had been around back when we were in seventh grade so we could have learned the birds and the bees while having a laugh, rather than squirming in our seat every time our teacher said the word “sperm.”
“Green Porno” is a series of short films, all two minutes or shorter in length, that show Rossellini dressed up as various creatures (including a whale with a six-foot dick) and explaining in her beautiful Italian accent the various details about how they procreate.
Rossellini has always been interested in animal behavior, ever since she was a little girl, and she decided to focus on the sex lives of animals in her short film series because, well, sex sells. “Not many people are interested in animal behavior, but everyone is interested in sex,” she tells us. So, she decided to make the series about how animals have sex, because it would be “varied, and scandalous, and different.” The short films aren’t meant to illuminate us on our own sex lives — after all, a barnacle probably doesn’t share the same sexual problems as you — but Rossellini does want you to learn something. “It’s supposed to be funny,” she says. “I would like the first reaction to be a laugh, and the second reaction to be, ‘Oh, I didn’t know that about animals!’”
The second season of “Green Porno” starts April 1, but if you haven’t seen the first season, catch up on it now at SundanceChannel.com/GreenPorno. Seriously, you should watch it. Sex hasn’t been this comical since your first time. Keep reading »
Three big trends for spring to fit every budget!
We’re stoked that espadrilles are making a big comeback this season because they’re the ultimate multi-purpose shoe. They’re the sort of dress-up/dress-down accessory that works particularly well with jeans and simple dresses. We’re loving the candy-colored varieties that are popping up all over stores, that add an extra zing to your spring.

The ladies over at Lemondrop are talking about a 30-Day No Casual Sex Challenge. Suggested by sex and relationships writer Samantha Brett at The Sydney Morning Herald, this is a month of no casual sex that might help you distinguish whether any guy is worth your time when you’re just starting to get to know each other. With hormones flying, it’s easy to overlook early problems in a relationship until the bedroom passion starts to wane a few months down the line. But is forgoing casual sex for 30 days even that much of a challenge? I think not, especially if you don’t meet any men during that time period. Amelia tried not to do anything physical for six months, and she had no problem getting past the 30-day mark. In fact, she made it all the way to 16 weeks, so a month ain’t no thang. After the jump 30 ways to spend your time that don’t involve intercourse, dry humping, or getting yourself off. Keep reading »
