I’ve never been much for the kind of lingerie that falls outside the bra and panties spectrum. I’ve never worn a corset, didn’t know what a merrywidow was until yesterday, and really just don’t understand garter belts. But then I started hanging out with someone who has a thing for thigh highs — the kind that don’t require garters. Now, I’m pretty down with trying new things, especially if it excites the person I’m with, so I looked into this whole thigh-high socking racket and realized they are effing sexy. Like, I kind of want to prance around my apartment in them for fun. And for him, too, if he’s lucky.

  • A Toilet Could Save Your Relationship

    A lot of women — myself included — get pissed off when a guy leaves the toilet seat up. Sure, it’s one extra step, but would it kill him to spend a few extra seconds to escape our wrath?

    Spiraling Economy Spawns Freelance Dominatrixes

    As the economy goes soft, some women are seeking to earn extra cash as freelance sex workers. As it turns out, there’s a market for powerful career gals who can dominate a man’s world — literally. According to Tracy Quan’s “Kinkonomics,” recently laid off ladies are freelancing as professional dominatrixes. Although sex workers generally consider pro-domme work the most difficult sex work, these well-educated, middle-class working girls have decided to try their hand at the kinky version of the world’s oldest profession. It’s another type of economic stimulus package; this one includes bondage, verbal humiliation, and foot worship. [The Daily Beast]

    Tears Are Not So Cathartic After All

    Do your emotions ever overflow to the point that you know a “good cry” is inevitable? This happens to me regularly. I usually welcome the tears because conventional knowledge is that crying is cathartic. But sometimes I end up feeling worse than I did before. At least I’m not alone.

    Tears accompany a myriad of human emotions — sadness, happiness, anger, nervousness, etc., and sometimes, a “good cry” is the only way to regain mental balance when your emotions are out of whack. But some researchers say that linking crying with emotional cleansing is misleading because not everyone feels better after every cry. Those, like me, who place a high expectation on a tearful breakdown often experience emotional confusion afterward.

    So the next time I feel like crying, I’m just going to veg out on chocolate, watch a funny flick, and cuddle my cats, instead. [New York Times] Keep reading »
