    Dating Drama: The Ex-Boyfriend Blues

    Since my breakup, I’ve not only been navigating single life, but I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of relationship to have with my ex. Are we friends? Acquaintances? Simply exes? Potential friends with benefits? It’s hard to say, and I vacillate between these possibilities. I’m grateful that ours was a long distance relationship, so I don’t have to worry about running into him at a club or the grocery store. At the same time, I’ll be honest — I miss him. Our once-daily talks and emails have dwindled to once or twice a week … but that doesn’t mean I don’t think of him more often than that. Keep reading »

    Does Alcohol Make Men Better In The Bedroom?

    The next time your man blames booze on his inability to, uh, rise to the occasion, you might want to tell him about this recent survey that suggests otherwise. Researchers in Australia discovered that alcohol actually improves rather than hinders a man’s performance in the bedroom. In a study of 1,580 men, drinkers reported 30% fewer problems than those who don’t booze it up. Guys who had four drinks, five days a week — an amount that might raise eyebrows in some circles, but qualifies as “moderate” in Australia — reported the fewest instances of erectile dysfunction. Apparently, even “binge drinkers” reported less trouble getting it up than those who have just one drink a day or none at all. The study suggests a “favorable association between low-risk drinking and positive erectile function.” In other words, “whiskey d**k” may just be something a guy should aspire to. Then again, the researchers never asked women how these drunk guys performed. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

    Sneezing Fetishes, Say What?

    Sometimes I think I’ve heard it all and then something like sneezing fetishes comes across my radar and I realize I haven’t heard ANYTHING. Obviously, there technically fetishes for everything (Soup fetishists! Foot fetishists! Puke fetishists!), which is why there are so many “-philias,” but I wasn’t aware that many of these fetishes actually had resources and an audience. So, take sneezing fetishists, who are turned on by the visual and auditory results of a sneeze. Hopefully these folks aren’t trolling the cold and flu aisle at Rite-Aid, because there’s the perfect outlet on YouTube, where there’s a channel devoted to videos of people sneezing. Subscribers to this channel are hardly future ear, nose, and throat doctors, and the appreciation for the quality and authenticity of a sneeze is fascinating. Take the description accompanying the video above: “Lacey is awesome with her latest video. Flared nostrils, false starts, soft tissues sneezes and that gorgeous ‘pre-sneeze face’ A BLONDE SNEEZE DREAM!” Wow. I’m curious how much sneeze fetishists might pay a gal to sneeze on command?

    The Fashion World Salutes Our New President

    Ever since Barack Obama began campaigning for the presidency, designers of a wide range of products have latched on to his marketability. And, at last, good old American pride seems to have gotten high fashion cred. Photographer Bruce Weber shot two models wearing Obama shirts with designer skirts and head pieces for Italian Vogue, and Elle‘s Kate Lanphear showed her presidential approval on Inauguration Day by sporting an “Obama Mama” tee. But Obama-fever isn’t relegated to T-shirts. A model who looks a little bit like our president closed Lanvin’s Fall 2009 show in Sunday. Hooray for the U.S.A.!

    This year marks the 45th anniversary of “Mary Poppins,” one of my all-time favorite movies. While I had never really thought of Mary as a fashion icon, the Spring 2009 Marc Jacobs show made me see otherwise. When the models came out wearing fabulous squashed straw boater hats, images of the ultimate super-nanny popped into my head. Borrow some of these Mary Poppins-inspired accessories, and you’ll look simply supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
