Dating Don’ts: The Four Types Of Guys On TV To Avoid

Don’t you just hate the type of person who smugly informs you, “I don’t watch TV,” like that’s something to be proud of? They think they’re so great with all their fancy book learning. What they don’t realize is that TV isn’t for dummies—there’s tons of educational programming available—you just need to know what to watch. I mean, you can learn your ABC’s with “Sesame Street”’s Grover, how to make gnocchi with Mario Batali, and the ins and outs of prettying up your home with any number of programs on HGTV.

Television is also a great romance resource. Think of all the great TV twosomes we’ve seen over the years—Lucy & Ricky Ricardo, Judy Jane & George Jetson, Speidi…but not all TV personalities set such a sincerely loving example. It’s also a good place to learn which type of guy you should avoid. A few examples, after the jump… Keep reading »

Recession Sex Is Good For Women

These days, America can’t get enough when it comes to recession sex. For women, former Us Weekly and Star editor Bonnie Fuller finds, the upside to the stock market downslide is “more sex.” To explore where the economy meets the libido, Fuller toured sex shops, talked to sexperts, and found the business of recession sex is booming. At sex toy boutique Babeland, sex toys sales are on the rise. The owner of high-end lingerie store La Petite Coquette reports lingerie sales are up. Why? Because women are looking to make their financially down-trodden men happy in the bedroom, if not the boardroom. Fuller’s sources say people are having more sex now that a recession is dawning for a variety of reasons: because sex takes our minds of our money problems, because staying home and having sex is cheaper than going out and having dinner, because if women can’t get off on shopping, we’re going to have to get off on something — or somebody. Of course, guys are finding other ways to get off, but women may find the recession may not be such a bad thing — sexually, at least. How’s the recession affected your sex life? Keep reading »

    Ritchie Rebounds With A Redhead

    Looks like Guy Ritchie has already gotten his rebound. So much for our suggestions — the director has decided to dip his ink in the company pool. Ritchie’s been seen canoodling with the leading lady from his forthcoming film, “Sherlock Holmes,” Kelly Reilly. How cheap! Seriously, can’t he shag someone who isn’t on the payroll?! Although, he was on Madonna’s for seven years…one would have thought he’d learned his lesson. It’s elementary, my dear Guy. [LA Times]

    Pay attention Library of Congress, because here comes some creative genius:

    San Francisco Voters To Decide Whether To Decriminalize Prostitution

    It’s easy to forget with a Presidential election as exciting as this one that there are actually many, many, many people and bills on the ballot November 4th besides Barack Obama and John McCain. One of the issues that got our attention early is Proposition K, a San Francisco proposal that would decriminalize prostitution in the city. If passed, the law would forbid local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex. The ballot measure still technically would not legalize prostitution since state law still prohibits it, but Proposition K would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes. The local Democratic Party has endorsed the measure, but the majority of actual local government officials are opposed. A similar measure in Berkeley lost in 2006 — while San Francisco is typically a liberal-leaning city, it’s pretty up in the air as to whether this Proposition will pass with voters. If it does, SF will become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize sex work. With that in mind, vote in our poll! [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

    If Sarah Palin Shopped For Her Campaign Clothes At Walmart…

    Politico reported that the Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin and her family since she became the party’s vice presidential candidate in late August. This handsome allowance included spending sprees worth $49,425.75 at Saks Fifth Avenue, $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus, and $4716.40 on hair and makeup. We’re not sure why America’s favorite model hockey mom is spending so much on her wardrobe when she could be shopping for similar styles at strip malls. Below, we show her how to get the same looks for less. Keep reading »

    10 Songs That Objectify Women (That We Really Love)

    We’d like to think we’re bra burning feminists that would be repulsed by songs that refer to a woman’s body parts or her sensual essence, but we’re not. In fact, we’re not even ashamed to admit that sometimes clever lyrics or a banging beat or melody trump our feminist ideals, especially in the club. So we put together a list of songs that objectify women, but are totally on playlists in our iPods. Don’t get mad that we’re not disgusted by these songs, just sit back and let the music move you.

    Crave: Ebelskiver Stuffed Pancake Pan

    I recently registered at Williams-Sonoma for the typical stuff any person needs—cookie sheets, bagel cutter, grapefruit spoons (hey, I’m a fan of citrus). But whenever the catalog arrives in the mail, I always look longingly at the pages, wishing my registry was a bit more on the adventurous side. The one appliance I’m borderline obsessed with is this “pancake” pan—but they’re not really pancakes. They’re actually ebelskiver, a traditional Danish puffed pancake filled with jelly, fruit or cheese. They look so ridiculously easy to make, and the finished product looks like a work of edible art. But instead of the other (dare I say boring?) fillings, I plan on stuffing them with Nutella and peanut butter. Yum. [$40, Williams-Sonoma] Keep reading »
