Nike Helps Taylor Momsen Escape The Paps

10 Ways To Be Unproductive In The New Year

It’s already two weeks into the New Year, and people are still being all motivated and productive and infuriatingly resolved. One friend is detoxing with her boyfriend, while another is spending five hours a week volunteering for Unicef. Another is playing the piano at his local nursing home, and yet another has upped her hours at work, in an attempt to snag a promotion. And then there’s your co-worker, who has stopped using credit cards, and can therefore no longer accompany you to Banana Republic after work. How insufferable! At a time when everyone is toiling and laboring and spending 40 minutes a day on the elliptical machine, isn’t it time you made a promise to yourself to be…unproductive? More after the jump… Keep reading »

The Breakup Diaries: A Dream Ends In An Epiphany

Yeah, yeah, I know I said last week’s column was going to be the final Breakup Diaries post, but then something amazing happened and I couldn’t resist an update. Last week I wrote about how, despite having made significant strides in recovering and moving on from my breakup, my ex still was haunting me in my dreams. On almost a nightly basis I was finding myself dreaming about him, begging him for answers — clearly, the thing holding me back from completely moving on was just questions about what got us there in the first place. The unfortunate thing about those dreams was knowing that I may NEVER get the answers I was seeking. I could only hope the dreams would go away sooner rather than later. Which brings me to last night… Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: Five Ways Not To Argue

I never trust couples that claim they don’t fight. I don’t believe them, and even if they aren’t lying, who wants to be with a guy who agrees with everything you say? How boring would that be? The best part of being in a relationship is exposing yourself to new ideas and ways of thinking. If you don’t have any conflict, you’re probably not going to have many sparks.

It may sound counter-intuitive, but one of the most important things a couple should figure out early on is how to fight fairly and effectively. Here’s what not do when you’re engaged in battle…. Keep reading »

We Salute “The United States Of Tara”

OMG bitches! Sometimes life throws you a bone…or in this case, a girl boner! Diablo Cody, the former stripper/screenwriter behind “Juno”, is giving her goodies away. The pilot episode of the new TV show she’s been working on since her Oscar win, “The United States of Tara,” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday. But If you go to Showtime’s website, you can wtach the entire first episode now! I did, and afterwards I was so satisfied, I needed a smoke. The show is totally original and somehow manages to make multiple personality disorder not a cheesy soap opera premise or a pathetic cry for help. Maybe it’s because Ms. Cody sees her character as a metaphor for the modern woman who is trying to fill so many roles. “The United States Of Tara” is backed by a seriously talented cast. Thanks to the amazingly hilarious character actress Toni Collette (“200 Cigarettes,” “Velvet Goldmine,” “Muriel’s Wedding,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) and John Corbett (Aidan on “Sex and the City”), I’m hooked.

    Estrogen May Make Women Promiscuous

    A new report released this week suggests that high levels of estrogen, known as estradiol, may make some of us act a bit slutty. Apparently, the hormone not only makes us feel pretty, it makes us horny, as well — and not just for the one we’re with. “Women with higher estradiol reported a greater likelihood of flirting, kissing and having a serious affair with someone other than their primary partner and were marginally more likely to date another man,” reported researcher Dr. Kristina Durante of The University of Texas at Austin. Researchers discovered that women with high-estradiol were considered significantly hotter by themselves, as well as others. High-estradiol is also the hormone that makes women especially fertile, so researchers report: “Results provide support for the relationship between physical beauty and fertility and suggest that women high in reproductive health engage in opportunistic serial monogamy — being open to affairs and moving on to a new relationship if a higher-quality mate becomes available.” It’s interesting, though, that the study only tested 52 women, all between the ages of 17 and 30, all undergrads, and all in Texas. That hardly seems like a fair representation of fertile woman, if you ask me. I mean, everyone knows Texan undergrads are loose. Oh, I kid, people. I kid. [Yahoo] Keep reading »

    You Are Not One Of The Most Important People In Sex

    This month, Playboy pronounced the most important people in sex. Their number includes Playboy CEO Hugh Hefner, “Sex and the City” creator Candace Bushnell, and Jenna Jameson. Daniel Radosh makes the case that sex is one of the most important cultural influencers of the modern age. “Reading the Playboy list, what quickly jumps out is that sex is as much a cultural force as a private act,” Radosh writes. Talking to list creator Chip Rowe, Radosh finds out which erotic icons didn’t make the cut, Bettie Page, Larry Flynt, and Dan Savage among them. Where the list is most remiss, Radosh ventures, is in featuring not one African-American on it. Where’s LL Cool J? Radosh wonders, seeing as “hip hop’s sexual (and frequently sexist) swagger has become the erotic lingua franca of young Americans of all races.” Of course, today the computer tops the list of the 21st century’s leading erotic pioneers, leaving the once cutting-edge Playboy on the locker room floor.
