Sex sells. But what about purity? A K-Swiss ad campaign features tennis star Anna Kournikova in a white sports bra and a teeny-tiny mini skirt, showing off her midriff like a high school ho. Now that they’ve got your attention with some T&A, what’s the slogan say? “Keep It Pure.” Um, what?! While we’re sure that Anna Kournikova is a lady, when there’s a billboard of her rolling around on her back on the tennis court, chastity doesn’t come to mind. And why should it? We’re not sure why K-Swiss is trying to sell sneakers with abstinence — something that even their cover girl Kournikova, who has been doing the horizontal mambo with Enrique Iglesias for years, doesn’t represent. And everyone knows, like a modern woman, it’s impossible for white sneakers to not get a little dirty. Keep reading »
With all the hullabaloo over Barack and Michelle Obama’s much watched fist-bump on Tuesday, we started thinking about how it compared to other political public displays of affection. Who could forget the never-ending kiss at the Democratic National Convention between Al and Tipper Gore? Some people are still holding back their lunch. Republican Presidential nominee John McCain has a PDA pattern of his own — at every rally he make sure to thank wife, Cindy, then gives her a polite kiss on the cheek. For others, as well as another photo of that fist-bump (we couldn’t resist), click after the jump… Keep reading »
Wow, so I’ve heard of Little Guns ‘N’ Roses and Little Amy Winehouse (well, she’s a little person, not a child), but I’d never heard of Little Chippendales till just now! It’s so wrong it’s almost right, but not quite.
[The clip is from a 1995 documentary called "The Chippendiddys" which, according to IMDB, is about "a group of pre-teen boys who do a milk and cookies spoof of the world's most famous all male dance troupe!"]

“It’s like being married to three different people in a week, because you never know who’s going to come out of the bathroom.” — Gavin Rossdale, describing life with wife Gwen Stefani, who’s known for her eclectic style. Keep reading »
Cecily von Ziegesar, the author behind the Gossip Girl series of books, is working on a new series for adults, to be published by Hyperion. The first book, about a group of young adults who meet freshman year of college, is called Cum Laude. She makes Latin sound dirty. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
We love sex. You love sex. Well, that’s out of the way.
Seeing as we’re both in agreement over the importance of sex, the excitement of sex, the giggle-inducing, gasp-inspiring, slow-motion tsunami of gooseflesh-triggering awesomeness of sex, we can move on to why it is we can’t really talk about S-E-X.
Women think men are mysterious when it comes to knocking boots, or worse, single-minded and simplistic. We’re not. You’re mysterious, and that’s not playground rhetoric. The difference between what we want and what you want, our needs and yours, is the difference between banal home theater instruction manuals and more exotic hieroglyphics.

So I’m flipping through Lucky this morning, which is normally filled with clothes I totally can’t afford (seriously, a $700 shirt guys?), when I noticed a blurb about Quiksilver. You know, the surf clothing company? Apparently they’ve hired a new designer and she’s taking their women’s street wear line in a totally new, awesome direction. Check out the look above, plus a few others after the jump. Catherine, who is out of the office today, is totally going to go ape&%$# for that tie-neck dress. The line won’t start becoming available until mid-July, so mark your calendars. If that dress sells out though, we will know who to blame! [Quiksilver.com] Keep reading »
“I’m on anti-depressants that have totally killed my libido but have made me feel much better in every other way. Should I consider switching to something different because of the sexual side effects or is there a way to increase my libido without coming off my meds?” — Pill Popper, via email
The sucky thing about anti-depressants is exactly this. They make you feel all nice and happy about things, but kill your sex drive…which in turn makes you depressed. It’s a vicious circle. Keep reading »
Seriously, the crowd was bigger than the one for New Kids On The Block and we saw at least four signs asking for Chris’ hand in marriage. Step off, girls, that’s Rihanna’s boo. [The Today Show, 6/6/08] Keep reading »
Remember those “True Love Waits” sweatpants we posted about the other day? Well, K-Mart is claiming that the sweats’ message has nothing to do with abstinence and that the bloggers who say that they do are making their own inference. Uh-huh. Cause true love waits for…the sun to shine? True love waits for…the NFL season to start? True love waits for…oh wait, BUSTED. Feministing has got total proof that K-Mart didn’t cover their tracks before lying. Check out the description of the pants to the left. Second bulleted item down, describes the pants’ “bold abstinence screen print”. Nice job ladies. Keep reading »
