Yesterday, we told you Rihanna supposedly plans to testify on behalf of Chris Brown, but everyday we learn more and more (rumors) about this surprising incident. I wholeheartedly believe she has gone back to him, and they will embark on a tumultuous and violent on-again-off-again relationship. I predict people will eventually stop caring about this pair, but until then, we’ll continue updating folks. Keep reading »
After liveblogging four hours of “The Bachelor” over the last two days, it’s no wonder I cannot get Poo-Poo Bach (as he was renamed last night), Sloppy Seconds (aka Molly), and Melissa out of my mind. As a result, it inspired this week’s Thoughts From Guys On Our IM topic, specifically breakups, and how much effort a couple should put in to saving a relationship before calling it quits. As I wrote about yesterday, “The Bachelor” hit a little close to home for me (not in a crying way, just in a “oh, I can relate to that” way), as I felt like in my breakup, I was given the option of trying to save what my fiance and I had. But how do guys feel about how much time and effort they should put into trying to make things work? Or are they more likely to throw in the towel as soon as the going gets rough? Between yesterday and today, I IM’d them to find out. Keep reading »
My dog Lucca, a female mutt that has been fixed, has a thing for humping stuffed animals and balled up socks. It doesn’t make much sense, since she shouldn’t have any sexual urges, but I think she does it to assert authority (over an inanimate object). Which is why I thought this Designer Sex Doll for dogs would be the perfect gift for her third birthday! After all, it looks vaguely like modern art and it will be easy for her to grasp with her front paws! But then again, there is a, um, pink hole at the rear end, and something tells me it’s not dishwasher safe. [NeatORama] Keep reading »
The guy I lost my virginity to found me on Facebook a few months ago. I opened my inbox to read, “Is this Teri? If so, hit me back.” It was an absurdly casual message, as if he had no idea I associated him with puking from anesthesia in the parking lot of an abortion clinic. The shock I felt when I saw the name Jeffery* in my inbox is a testament to how successful I had been at forgetting everything that happened between us. Keep reading »
Men with libido problems might find themselves taking food fetishes one step further. A new study from the National Academy of Sciences finds that the scent of rotten eggs can have the same effects of Viagra on men. It turns out that the smell, hydrogen sulphide, is released in small amounts from a guy’s penis through nerve cells. We can see it now — Eau des Oeufs Outréfiés by Dior.
What doesn’t turn him on? Being a fatty. Researchers have discovered that excessive weight relates to lower testosterone levels. (Although we have to question if overweight men just have a harder go at it in finding mates, and eventually get used to a life without sex. Sad!) But not to worry! A little gastric bypass surgery can turn men back into love machines, as participants in the study reported better sex lives post-op. Keep reading »
Here’s looking at you, kid. This model wasn’t crying when she paraded down the runway during Milan Fashion Week wearing this surrealist-psycho ensemble designed by Madrid’s Agatha Ruiz de la Prada — or, heck, was she? It’s impossible to tell with that giant eyeball she’s wearing on her head. Who knew cyclopses were the new black? And if that skirt’s not sexual, I don’t know what it is. Or, you know, maybe that’s just me. Of course, this frock wasn’t the only crazy creation the Spanish designer concocted for her Fall/Winter 2009 line. There’s the baguette hat, the trapped-in-a-birdcage exoskeleton, Rainbow Brite Chewbacca, and, I don’t know, this chick just looks like a hedge. [China Daily] Keep reading »
Behold the European beer giant’s latest ad that’s been airing all over Holland. You don’t need to speak Dutch to get the gist. The scene takes place at a couple’s new home, where the woman is giving her friends a grand tour. The situation quickly turns into a screaming contest between men and women, beer and shoes, as enormous closets of both are revealed. I don’t doubt that most women wouldn’t be stoked over a huge walk-in—it’s just that I kind of want the room full of beer as well.

March is National Women’s History Month, and we’re celebrating by sharing a lady we admire each weekday.
LOIS LONG (1901-1974)
One of the first female writers at The New Yorker, Lois Long initially covered nightlife for the magazine under the nom de plume Lipstick. That’s right, she got to party for a living. Since no one knew who this Lipstick character was, Long could be as sassy as she wanted her columns, writing memorable lines like, “It was customary to give two dollars to the cabdriver if you threw up in his cab,” and the prohibition was the result not teaching the countries youth “to drink with aplomb.” Not only did she went on to start the “Tables For Two” column, but she continued to write “On & Off The Avenue” for the magazine until 1968. An editor at the magazine has said that Long was the first American fashion critic to approach fashion as an art.

It just won’t end will it? ABC must be in cahoots with my local wine shop, because this show has cost me a pretty penny in libations. But they’re the only thing that keep me sane during this travesty! Tonight, Jason and his trade-in, Molly, come back to talk about what’s gone on since the FIRST “After The Final Rose” was filmed. Melissa is back too. We hope she’s no longer sad and humiliated. Anyhoo, the drama goes down at 10 pm EST — in the meantime, a poll… Keep reading »
