Japanese designers create such beautiful products. Just look at MUJI, the non-brand brand that makes everyday items like tape dispensers and thermoses simply elegant. It doesn’t surprise us that another Japanese company has elevated the look of masturbators. Yes, that’s what the eggs pictured above are. Peel the egg, and there’s a stash of lube inside, which, when poured into the egg, creates a vagina-like environment. Sure, guys could be like Seth Rogen’s character in “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” and buy a Fleshlight, but you can’t hide a Fleshlight in your refrigerator very well. [The Trendy Girl] Keep reading »
Jon Hamm is guest starring on “30 Rock” starting Feb. 5, and a clip from the episode has been released! Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) discovers she has a handsome neighbor when Dr. Drew Baird’s mail gets delivered to her by mistake. From the 39 second that have been released, we know that Dr. Baird has an ice cream maker and loves to bake. Swoon.
The line Liz utters, “I want to go to there,” is one Fey stole from her daughter, Alice. At the SAG Awards, Fey thanked Alice in her acceptance speech for coining this phrase. About 25 years from now, Alice is going to be writing, starring in, and producing a show of her own, guaranteed. Either that, or she’ll be a highly acclaimed author. The girl is writing TV dialogue at age 3! Keep reading »
What’s this ad really about? You tell me. Copyranter reports this ad campaign was created for the German edition of Men’s Health magazine. Both of the ads feature young women exercising to the point of sweaty, dejected exhaustion. In one ad, the woman leans over the handlebars of her bicycle, out of breath. In the other ad, the woman sits on her stationary bicycle, wiped out. The ad copy reads: “IT’S ALL ABOUT MEN.” Copyranter opines: “While it’s certainly not clear, the message of the campaign appears to be ‘that’s right babes, you keep exercising you little patooties off…for us men.’” It’s hard to argue with that position. One of the female commenters chimes in: “The only reason I exercise is so I can get laid.” I’d say she’s the truthteller. What do you think? Is this misogynist marketing or the face of reality?

Today started off as a miserable day, and it’s getting worse. We just heard that Conde Nast closed Domino magazine and its website, DominoMag.com. Damn, economy! March 2009 will be the magazine’s final issue. Amelia and I are simply heartbroken. Domino was our porn. What are we going to lust over (besides Ryan Gosling) now?!?! Please join me in a moment of silence. Keep reading »
A sensitive guy’s emotional availability is decorative, a means by which to exploit a woman’s weakness for men who are not total beer-powered, boxer shorts wearing Guitar Heroes with mommy issues and 18 gigabytes of porn hidden in a computer file named “Unicorns.” This sort of dude displays his sensitivity with emo mixtapes, passionate rants on fluffy political issues like being pro-bunny rabbit or anti-death from shrapnel, and professions of understanding the subtle intricacies of the female heart.

One of the things I love about being in a relationship is that my friend circle multiplies. But what happens to those newly formed friendships when the relationship ends? For example, recently two of my friends who were in a couple broke up and it’s been awkward ever since. Where we used to all go out together once or twice a month, now I have to split time between them, and I have the nagging feeling that I’m cheating when I hang out with one and not the other. After driving myself crazy for a few weeks (Do I talk about or avoid the subject? Partake in talk about the ex or awkwardly change the subject when it comes up?), I sought some advice on dealing with the joint-friends breakup — who keeps whom? And does it really have to come down to that? Keep reading »
Now that I’m back on the “dating scene,” I’ve realized that I’m still borderline idiotic when it comes to male-female courtships. My last relationship started off pretty typically — a dinner date here, a movie date there — but quickly spiraled into very serious, very quickly. We said I love you within two months, moved in together within five months, and were together for nearly five years. I can’t recall when we or if we had the whole “boyfriend/girlfriend” discussion, or how we knew we were seeing each other exclusively. It’s unfortunate, because I could use that knowledge now. For example, how in the hell do you know when your fun, dating relationship has progressed into boyfriend/girlfriend territory? Is it when you have the “we’re banging each other exclusively” conversation? When introductions are made to friends? When one of you slips up and and says “my boyfriend” in front of the other? And let’s say you’re dating each other exclusively (because dating, not to mention sleeping, with multiple people is extremely time consuming), when does THAT change into BF/GF? Seriously, can you tell I am confused? The guys on my IM are here to help… Keep reading »
Oh PETA. Always gettin’ themselves banned. Above, the commercial that WON’T run during the Superbowl, which features scantily clad women getting horny with some vegetables. Because apparently, “studies show, vegetarians have better sex.” Is that true? Anyway, I don’t really see what’s SO super hot about it, but it does continue PETA’s trend of objectifying women in order to push their don’t eat meat agenda. Whatevs. It did kind of make me want a carrot stick dunked in ranch dip.

Great news for those of us who are 32: we’re totally hot! At least, this is the age we report feeling the most beautiful, anyway. A new survey of 1500 women found that 40% of respondents said they felt most attractive at this age. At 32 women say their life “had the mix of confidence gained from life experience, an active love life and the pleasure of eating and drinking sensibly.” Hmm…do women not have that at 33 anymore? Or at 38, or 43, or 50? While I would hope these things would continue well past 32, some psychologist named Sandra Wheatley says this is “really encouraging” news because it means women are placing value on life experiences and achievements instead of just how shiny there hair is or how perky their boobs are. She told the Daily Mail: “It sounds to me like women are becoming much more swayed by personality. It’s a sign that we are valued for who we are and what we are capable of, not just what is on the surface. Feeling beautiful is tied in with confidence and life experience. At 32, a woman has been through and survived more experiences and achieved more than at 22.” Keep reading »
