Once you create an outfit, it will even help you figure out where to purchase it all. Designers range from high end to everyday bargains. When you’re finished, you can share you creations or look at others in the community. The outfit above is by user “daydreamed” and is called “Gone Swimming.” Can I come? [Polyvore] Keep reading »

On last night’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dr. Callie Torres struggled with her feelings for Dr. Erica Hahn. Neither of them has been in a same-sex relationship before, and Callie isn’t sure she’s going to like the sex part. In the above clip, Dr. Miranda Bailey gives Callie some advice that all of us could use whenever we’re doing something for the first time. See, you shouldn’t really be doing anything that you don’t feel comfortable talking about. Now, didn’t we all learn that in seventh-grade sex ed? Keep reading »
Yesterday we told you about how, thanks to a new spa trend, women are finally able to get happy endings. That’s right, after centuries of men being able to get some so easily, we ladies are finally getting our fair shot! However, even though the playing field has been leveled, we wonder, if you’re in a relationship, is it still considered out of bounds or is it just a fun way to score? After reading this awesome article by Gina from Mom Logic, who encouraged her husband to cash in and get off during his weekly massage, we had to wonder… do you consider a hand job from a professional masseuse cheating?

We have officially entered boot season, which means we have also entered sock season, unless you enjoy developing awful blisters on your Achilles tendons. While getting dressed this morning, I realized I only have athletic ankle socks and a pair of red socks decorated with green Christmas trees. Today, I went with the holiday socks, even though they clash with my pink dress; Only I will see them, after all. But a girl needs more than one pair to get through winter — and everyone needs a pair of slipper socks (last photo) to prevent numb toes while lounging. Keep reading »
Earlier this week, the guys on our IM gave their thoughts on high maintenance women, and I was really shocked to learn that men actually appreciate (at times) a physically high maintenance woman. Emotionally high maintenance women are another story all together. Now I consider myself to be a high maintenance woman, but not in the traditional sense. I like treating myself to mani/pedis and can spend hours in Sephora. And if shopping was an Olympic sport, I’d definitely win gold. But the thing is I like doing all this for myself. I don’t expect my boyfriend to do it for me. I do, however, expect him to wait for me while I get dressed for work or a date because I really don’t like to leave the house until I look and feel my best. Since I can dress in an hour and I don’t have my paws on his wallet, I think I’m really just an average girl with a slight case of high maintenance-osis. But I started thinking…if I really was crazy (let’s call it what it is), what would I do to show my high maintenance colors? After the jump find 11 ways to get in touch with your high maintenance side, too. Keep reading »
Bonnie Fuller wrote yesterday on The Moment blog about how the recession is affecting people’s sex lives, a topic we have explored before. So, are hard economic times helping people’s sex lives? Fuller did some research among New York retailers, and made an interesting discovery: Business is actually up at specialty sex shops.
Erotic toy and lingerie store Babeland saw a 25-percent increase in sales the week of Sept. 29 compared to the same week last year. “The same thing happened after 9/11, when our business also soared. I think we’re recession-proof because sex accessories are an inexpensive luxury,” said Claire Cavanah, the store’s co-founder.
Even lingerie store La Petite Coquette has been selling loads of lacy underthings. “We think men are really stressed out and working harder, so their wives and girlfriends are buying lingerie to help their guys relax,” owner Rebecca Aspan said. Ummm, we’re really stressed out and working harder, too! What are our husbands and boyfriends doing to help us relax, buying silk boxers for themselves? We hope not. Keep reading »
