Knowd: Simply Irresistible
Right now I’m going to be one of those slightly pathetic girls who reference an episode of “Sex and the City” to try and make a point, but then again who am I kidding, because I learned a lot from those four ladies. Thinking back to season three, when Charlotte was on the cusp of marrying Trey and found out she was getting locked into a shady prenuptial agreement has got me wondering about the subject. If I got married right now and my fiancé and I decided to have a prenuptial agreement, what the hell would he even be able to take from me? My favorite pillow? My DVR? My favorite necklaces? Oh wait I already lost those a week ago. Keep reading »
If you’re going to dress head to toe in one color, at least mix up the textures, like this gal who has a thing for deep maroon-y brown. Notice how she’s wearing tights that have lines on them instead of solid ones? Good call. Also, it’s a good thing she’s blond. If she were a brunette, I’m not sure this look would work — there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Keep reading »

A few weeks ago, we wrote about a story on Politico.com that reported the Obama campaign was seeking a rape victim for a campaign ad that would attack Sarah Palin’s stance on abortion. (The VP nominee is anti-choice, even in cases of rape or incest.) According to the Politico piece, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, served as a conduit between the campaign. Since running that post, we hadn’t heard any further information on whether the Obama campaign did indeed find a woman for their ad, but I just came up on the video above, via The Huffington Post. The ad features a rape victim, who became pregnant as the result of her attack, addressing Palin about her stance on abortion. This ad, however, was put out by Women Against McCain-Palin and it doesn’t have the “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” sound bite at the end, so it’s not affiliated with his official campaign. Regardless, the video above is extremely compelling. Keep reading »
No matter where I seem to live in New York City, my neighbor is always a “handy shack,” aka a massage parlor that doles out happy endings. Currently, I live next to a place with a basement entrance, a neon red light, and middle-aged masseuses who wait for customers behind veiled curtains. It purports itself to be a Chinese Healing Center — hey, as we all know, there are many benefits to sexual healing. The handwritten sign in the window advertises a deal for “61 minutes.” My best friend thinks that extra minute is all the time their clients need to prematurely ejaculate, but I think it really says 69 illegibly.
We see men go and come there, and I even have a married friend who frequents it. It’s always hilarious when I catch him with a big smile on his way out. Parlors like that are a dime a dozen in the city, but nothing tops where I lived fresh out of college. The infamous Russian Turkish Bath House of the East Village was the building in my backyard. I recommend taking a gander at their video to get a sense of the experience. I myself spent many a night watching the free porn that went on in their outdoor pool, so, I was not surprised to read that they are…how should I put it… a full-service operation. Keep reading »
My story sucks, so I’m not going to tell it. BUT I will tell you that Willie Nelson was on the stereo, a String Cheese Incident (a terrible jam band) poster was on the wall, and the guy was of the opposite political affiliation than me. But what about the rest of you? We sent our girl Lori out to ask total strangers about their first times. Shockingly, she didn’t get all that many dirty looks! Keep reading »
Last night, just hours after confirming her divorce, Madonna, who was performing to a sold out crowd in Boston, dedicated a song to Guy Ritchie. However, the track “Miles Away,” a little ditty based on their strained, career-based long distance relationship, wasn’t exactly a thank you for all the good times. Madonna set it up by saying, “This song is for the emotionally retarded. You may know a few people like that. God knows I do.” Ouch! Poor Guy, no one deserves to be dragged through the mud, and the media, by their ex.
I have to admit, despite my complete Madonna worship, I empathize with the dude. In relationships, I often have a hard time communicating my feelings even if I really care about the person. Ew, just writing “my feelings” makes me squirm. So, while that attitude will probably keep me a bachelorette and make Guy Ritchie rich from his divorce settlement (supposedly there’s no pre-nup!), maybe, just maybe, I can save you some time. Under the guise of “it takes one to know one”, here are Five Signs You’re Dating Someone Emotionally Stupid, after the jump…
