Bedtime Stories

There is no shortage of pornographic material available to the average adult. Anyone with a computer has access to a plethora of naughty and not so nice images. Whether we’ve wanted to or not, most of us — whether through an error in a Google Search or the “witty” antics of a friend — have seen the skin on a few men, or women, or (God forbid) animals contorted into positions that would make the Pilobolus Dance Troupe jealous. However, not everyone wants to look. The good news is: you don’t have to watch strangers’ sexual exploits for a stimulating time; you can read about them. Welcome to the world of erotic novels, a girl’s right-hand man (or woman) in the bedroom. Keep reading »

Why Do Women Stay With Guys Who Cheat?

There seems to be a lot of infidelity lately — just look at some of the biggest celebrity breakup of 2008. But not all cheating leads to splits. In an article that ran in London’s Sunday Times, writer Kate Spice investigates why wives have stood by their men even as they’re sleeping with someone else. Some of the reasons for staying with an adulterous spouse were:

-For the kids’ sake.
-Because she doesn’t want to have sex (and letting her husband have a mistress is akin to hiring someone to clean the house).
-For the good of a family business.
-As long as he comes back, it isn’t doing any harm.
-Love.

Is there anything that would make you want to stay with a man who cheated on you? Tell us in the comments… Keep reading »

Is Oprah’s Weight Struggle The Secret To Her Success?

In case you live in a cave and have somehow avoided seeing images of Oprah recently, she’s put on some weight in the last couple of years: 40 pounds to be exact. In the January issue of O Magazine, out on newsstands today, Oprah opens up about her continued weight struggle in what’s become her signature way: like she’s confessing her sins — or at least her deepest vulnerabilities — to her closest confidante. “I’m embarrassed,” she writes. “I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, `How did I let this happen again?”‘

Angelina Jolie’s Red Carpet Deja Vu

When I saw the photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at last night’s red carpet premiere of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button” I did a double take because the look Angie was rocking seemed veryfamiliar. Sure, there’s nothing particularly inventive about a black strapless gown and tightly pulled back hair (though she did look stunning), but it’s basically the exact same outfit she wore to the Golden Globes back in 2002 with then-hubby Billy Bob Thorton. Minus the pearls and dark penciled-in eyebrows, of course, which have been replaced with that lovely mother-of-six glow. [Images: Splash News] Keep reading »

Amsterdam Is Ridding Itself Of Sin

Amsterdam, known by many for its drugs and its brothels, is trying to clean up its image. The city council’s finance chief has a vision of people walking through Amsterdam’s China Town and the city’s old ramparts, followed by a cappuccino next to the city’s oldest church. The problem is, there isn’t a place to get a cup of coffee in the city center, because that’s the heart of Amsterdam’s red light district. Over the next 10 years, the number of prostitutes windows will be reduced by half, to about 250, and they will be concentrated on just two streets. The number of coffee shops that sell cannabis will also be halved, to 38. In their place, up-market retail chains and food purveyors. So, if you want to experience a dirtier version of Amsterdam, go now; but if you want to have a cleaner, less gritty trip, wait a few years and the prostitutes will mostly be gone.

Eight Songs To Make You Spend (Without Saint Nick)

I can’t stand Christmas music. After a weeks worth of shopping I’m already up to my eyeballs in “Silver Bells” and “Feliz Navidad.” Don’t get me wrong, I love buying gifts, but if I hear one more light jazz rendition of “Jingle Bell Rock,” I’m going to lose it. There are plenty of non-Christmas celebrating shoppers out there, slowly being tortured by seasonal elevator music — the Heebs, Muslims, Buddhists, Jehovah Witnesses, Atheists, Taoists….well, you get the point. Still, since it’s our job, if we have the means, to help boost the economy, I would just like to suggest some tracks to the retailers out there, unless they want me to do my holiday shopping at home — where I can blast my own awesome non-denominational music. Now, let’s get in the mood to spend with these hot holiday-free jams that revel in consumerism…
