You Can Buy Sex And Love, But Not Romance

The New York Times article, “The Recession. Isn’t It Romantic?” reveals that online dating and matchmaking are up despite nearly 600,000 people having lost their jobs last month. And even back in October, people were buying more lingerie and sex toys while they skimped on other essentials. This got me thinking about the stuff you can buy and the stuff you can’t, even if you’d like to. I’d be willing to shell out for romance — too bad it’s not for sale. Keep reading »

Would Two Hippos Humping Turn You On?

It’s difficult to have a remarkable Valentine’s Day. A person can only eat a limited amount of drugstore chocolate before gagging in disgust. Red roses are cliche. And gushing over wack jewelry is harder than it looks, unless you’re an Oscar-winning actress. To add a little spice to the day a Michigan zoo came up with “Zoorotica,” which will allow couples to watch animals mating and promises to make Feb. 14 a day to remember. Yeah, filled with unpleasant memories. More details, after the jump… Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: I Can’t Quit A Libra Man

I was best friends with this guy all through college. Senior year we figured out we were attracted to each other and secretly hooked up a couple of times even though we were both in very serious relationships. We continued to hook up whenever we saw each other, but we never spoke about an actual relationship or our real feelings for one another.

Fast forward to last year — we had a very intense email correspondence going, telling each other how much we loved each other, and how we would try our best to make a relationship work, despite us living on opposite coasts with promising careers. At this time he was in a serious long-term relationship with another girl but he intimated that he would break up with her when he returned. I went to visit him for a week. During that trip, I learned that he was planning to buy a house and move in with his long-term girlfriend. I was pissed off and didn’t speak to him for a year. He and his girlfriend are now living the perfect suburban dream.

A couple of months ago, when he was visiting the west coast, I saw him. It was wonderful and we hooked up again. The last night he was in town, we stayed up all night talking—it was intense. I wanted to tell him how much he had hurt me before, but I didn’t want to ruin a perfect night. So, I emailed him after he left and told him how much he had hurt me, how much he meant to me, and how I was still willing to make something work. I haven’t heard from him for two months. I’m totally kicking myself, but I still want to believe in my heart that this just isn’t the time for us, and that the time might come someday. My birthday is 11/29/78, time 7:56am, in Washington. His birthday is 9/26/78. Do we have a chance in hell or am I another doormat? — Confused Keep reading »

Joaquin Phoenix Brings His Bearded Freak Show To Letterman

Last night formerly super hot Joaquin Phoenix made a really bizarro appearance on David Letterman, and generally came off like a zonked out, frowning weirdo. Here’s the thing. I think it’s all a stupid “celebrity punking the media” publicity stunt to go along with his bogus fore into rap music. After all, Casey Affleck is doing a documentary on him and maybe that documentary is going to be called, “HAHA Suckers!” This is the dude that decided to go by the name Leaf for, like, a decade.

Mind Of Man: Be Better In Bed

I have never met a woman who thought she was bad in bed. I have known plenty of women who can rattle off an impromptu, critical dissertation on the carnal failings of most men. “He didn’t get me off.” “He treated my nipples like Xbox control sticks.” “He came before his pants were off.”

No, not all women are great in bed. Is the onus on dudes to break the bedsprings? I say no. It is both of our responsibilities to be the best lay possible. There are women who kick back Cleopatra-style and dare their men to please them. Women who use men like giant, hairy vibrators, and women who are so eager to please, it can be overwhelming.

Ditch The Whip Cream Bikini & Other Valentine’s Day Don’ts

Valentine’s Day Don’ts For Daring Women

  • Do not use indelible Magic Markers to write lewd things on your body. They don’t wash off. Use something aloe based instead.
  • Do not answer the door dressed only in Saran Wrap. The leech across the hall has a hidden camera trained on your door with YouTube written all over it.
  • Do not insist he drop his Fruit of the Looms and model the thong you got him. He could get hurt.
  • Do not confiscate the mic from the lounge singer to do raunchy lyrics to “My Horny Valentine.”

    Sexism In Advertising: Domestic Abuse Poster Girls

    rihanna brown 021109 c jpg
    With a talented star like Rihanna allegedly falling victim to Chris Brown’s supposed abusive behavior, domestic violence is being discussed all over the media. And it’s about time. However, while they talk a good game about how awful beating up a woman is, their hands are still outstretched for revenue from violently chauvinistic ads. There’s atrocious, real life abuse threatening women all over the world, but for some reason, advertisers seem to find sexually aggressive and violent imagery to be an effective sales pitch. Why just this week, Relish, an Italian clothing line, came out with new ads which portray women being fondled by police officers against their will.

    In a climate where were already struggling to explain to our daughters how to respect and love themselves in the face of unrealistic standards of beauty, a hypersexualized culture, and a girlie pop heroine who may have had the crap kicked out of her by another popular teen star, these ads are yet another blow. But what responsibility do the advertisers have to stop sending messages that dangerously equate domestic abuse with sexy style? Granted, what two people choose to do in the privacy of their bedroom is their business, however, a line can be crossed when companies sell aggression against women as sexy. As Huffington Post pointed out, no matter how far women’s rights have come, our society just can’t seem to shake sexist advertising. Check out some of the biggest offenders in this slideshow…
