Cue the controversy and strike up the blogger debates. WNBA star Diana Taurasi appears naked on the cover of ESPN magazine’s annual body issue. The Phoenix Mercury guard/forward is one of a bevy of athletes posing in the buff with strategically placed athletic gear for the magazine; among Taurasi’s peers in the issue: tennis star Venus Williams, surfer and hottie Kelly Slater, and MMA fighter Gina Carano. In all likelihood, some critics will suggest the basketball player’s sexy and revealing cover is little more than sports-related sexploitation, but Taurasi says, “I am who I am — whether I have clothes on or off.” However it pans out, we’re happy to see a woman on a magazine cover flaunting her real body.

Late last month, Republican firebrand Ann Coulter spoke at Homocon, an event organized by GOProud, an organization of gay conservatives. In her remarks, she tried to convince gays and lesbians in attendance that they shouldn’t want, or have the right, to get married. The week before that, following her victory in the Delaware GOP primary, Christine O’Donnell became a household name (and a political punch line), mostly thanks to her arch-conservative views on sex and masturbation.
More recently, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi predicted that the U.S. military’s controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy would be dead by the end of this year. And in a few days, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be heading to the Balkans to attend talks between Serbia and Kosovo on Kosovar independence.
Important issues, sure, but let’s not let them distract us from what really matters, people: Are these ladies hot or not? Keep reading »
We’re approaching winter. So while it might not exactly be picnic season, we’re beginning to think there’s no reason to stop outdoor dining, especially after seeing the squeal-worthy goods from Boxal. The eco-friendly packaging company creates cheeky cardboard picnic boxes, each complete with biodegradable utensils and plates, plus recycled napkins. These aren’t any old cardboard boxes, mind you. The Urban Picnic set sports an illustration of a boom box, while the Office Escape mimics a briefcase. Even if you’re not going to eat outside … how cute would it be to show up at your girlfriend/boyfriend’s place with a prepared meal and a classy box to pack it all up in?
I just read a depressing thing. According to a poll by Wet intimacy products, 80 percent of women say they would not have sex with one of the male cast members of “Jersey Shore.” To this I say—only 80 percent? What the eff is wrong with the other 20 percent of women who took this survey? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Best case scenario, you get called a grenade, hyena, or slut by a total jerkface on national TV and then they play catch with your chicken cutlet or call you a cab two minutes after they pull out. Worst case scenario, you get an incurable STD or knocked up with one of these loser’s spawn. Do. Not. Do. It. Keep reading »
Here is the video for Virgin Atlantic’s new global campaign and I have three things to say: 1) I am terrified of flying
; 2) I have never done drugs; 3) but I imagine tripping looks something like this, which is just about the worst thing I could imagine while flying. Giant dancing forks, a flight attendant whose chest magically opens up and gives birth to another flight attendant, and drowning in a martini glass aren’t quite my cup of tea. [YouTube
