Vivienne Westwood Wants To Write The “Sex And The City” Sequel

Vivienne Westwood, the British fashion designer who created the wedding dress Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the “Sex and the City” movie, hated the film and thinks she can write a better one. The 67-year-old, who walked out of the premiere after ten minutes, has asked SJP to let her write the plot for the sequel. No word yet whether she’ll be taken up on her offer, but we can’t help wondering what Michael Patrick King, writer and director of “Sex and the City,” thinks about it…not to mention stylist Patricia Field, whose designs for the movie Westwood publicly criticized. “I thought ‘Sex And The City’ was supposed to be about cutting-edge fashion,” she said after the film was released, “and there was nothing remotely memorable or interesting about what I saw.”

So what do you guys think? If Vivienne Westwood writes the sequel, will “Sex and the City” be better than ever? Do you even care what the plot is, or are you happy just seeing the girls again and all the great fashion? [Telegraph.co.uk via NYMag] Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Go Ahead, Have Sex On The First Date

Go ahead and have sex on the first date if you want. If it feels good, do it. Ruin yourself. Get your rocks off. Surrender to chemistry, drink, irresponsibility. Indulge in the passion, throw caution to the wind, make a big sloppy mess of your love life. Your prince might not call you back if you rail him in the bathroom stall or after he slinks out of your apartment while you’re sleeping. If that happens, cry and wail! Just know that reports of the fragility of the human heart are greatly exaggerated. Keep reading »

No “Doubt” For Viola Davis

Viola Davis doesn’t have top-billing on “Doubt” movie posters or the website. But the Tony Award-winning actress has been generating a great deal of award buzz for her role as Mrs. Miller, a mother who makes a surprising decision when confronted with the accusation her son may have been molested by a priest. Although she only appears in the film for 11 minutes, she has been nominated for a Golden Globe and there is talk of an Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress. Davis said she felt gawky acting opposite Meryl Streep (Sister Aloysius) in rehearsals. However, she holds her own in one of the movie’s most powerful scenes, even if she was a little embarrassed when she first watched it. She said on “The View,” “When I first saw the scene…I took to my bed…’cause I saw all the boogers coming out my nose.” Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: Relationship Anxieties To Quit Worrying About

A good friend of mine recently reminded me of some advice I’d given her back in college. She was about to sleep with a new boyfriend for the first time and had been fretting about some body part. Apparently I shrugged and told her, “Please—boys are just happy to have a naked girl in the same room as them.”

I was kind of surprised and impressed when she told me I’d actually said these words. Over the years I have had pre-sex panic attacks over (in no particular order): my eyebrows, nasally voice, bad breath, body hair, belly roll(s), teeth, table manners, inner thighs… basically if I had it, I wasted valuable lady hours worrying about it.

    Pink: The Color For Boys?

    Pink equals girl, blue equals boy. That’s the widespread association with those two colors, but it wasn’t always that way. In the early 1900s, blue was for girls and pink was for boys. Back then, the British magazine Women’s Journal explained: “That pink being a more decided and stronger colour, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” DressMaker magazine agreed. “The preferred colour to dress young boys in is pink. Blue is reserved for girls as it is considered paler, and the more dainty of the two colours, and pink is thought to be stronger (akin to red).” No one knows when the change took place, but by the time Adolf Hitler was in power, the switch had been made, as he labeled homosexuals with a pink triangle, which associated them with femininity.

    Are Love Potions In Our Future?

    Finding the perfect partner may soon be as easy as sharing a little love potion cocktail with some random guy at a bar. Scientists have identified two hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin — the hormones released during sex — that make us feel bonded to another person. Tests in sheep found that a single injection of oxytocin was enough to make a mama lamb form an immediate bond with baby lambs that were not her own. Such research suggests that love could be nothing more than a “cocktail of brain chemicals.” The idea that chemistry matters way more in the search for love than, say, common interests and mutual attraction “raises important issues for society,” according to Larry Young, an expert in the neuroscience of social bonding. “For one thing, drugs that manipulate brain systems at whim to enhance or diminish our love for another may not be far away.” As a result, Young says, “It won’t be long before an unscrupulous suitor could slip a pharmaceutical love potion in our drink.” Theoretically, the same love potion could be given to couples who want to “rekindle faded passions or diminish problematic feelings.” Sure beats spending thousands of bucks on a marriage counselor, right?
