A new study done by the online dating site OKCupid found that women who have iPhones are getting laid way more than Blackberry or Android users. Even male users. On average, of the almost 10,000 people surveyed, the iPhone-toting ladies have an average of 12.3 sexual partners by age 30 while ladies using Blackberries have about 8.1 and Android gals have about 6.1. The male sex partner stats are respectively 10, 8.1, and 6. Wait, how is it that the ladies are getting laid more than the dudes? And even more importantly, when is AT&T going to end the monopoly so that we people, ahem, with other wireless services can get an iPhone and start scoring? [Fast Company] Keep reading »
It’s “America’s Next Top Model
” Cycle 15 trailer time … and I’m scared. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’m thinking they should re-name the show “America’s Next Top Circus Freak.” Keep reading »
A few months ago, I posted a Quick Pic of Kourtney and Kim Kardashian bouncing along a beach boardwalk with weird boots on their feet, which I then dubbed “pogo jogging.” Further investigation revealed they were wearing “Kangoo Jumps,” shoes worn while participating in some new fangled fitness fad out of, uh, Europe or something. Being that I’m a gal who likes to skip, jump, and gallop around for no reason, this seemed like the ideal workout to try out for our “Fearlessly Fit” series. And because working out is so much more fun when you’re doing it with a buddy, I dragged along my brother-from-another-mother, our own Mind of Man, John DeVore. Keep reading »
More bad news out of the Middle East: Fresh off Time magazine’s cover story on the state of Afghanistan (with accompanying extremely disturbing cover photo), a new report from Afghanistan’s Health Minister found that more than 23,000 women and girls attempted suicide there last year — a “several-fold” increase on previous years.
Around 48 percent of Aghanistan’s 23.6 million people are women — so that means around .2 percent of the country’s female population has attempted suicide. Compare that with the U.S. — where 2005 statistics found that 6,730 women committed suicide — or .004 percent — and you’ll see how shocking that really is. (Attempted suicide statistics are unavailable but most reports say there is one death for every 12 to 25 attempts.)
Why are so many Afghan women taking their own lives? Keep reading »
“I get to play Joe Francis! Oh, wait. For legal reasons I’m supposed to say, ‘I play someone loosely based on Joe Francis.’ I play Derek Jones, who owns Wild Wild Girls, which is loosely based—loosely!—on Girls Gone Wild … We shot the film at Lake Havasu, which is a man-made lake that the Colorado River runs into. The water’s, like, 60 degrees. That’s, like, really cold. So any images of my penis that have been captured, well, it’s freezing water. It’s not my best light.”
—Jerry O’Connell talks about the flick “Piranha 3D,” in which he plays a soft-core pornographer looking for coeds to exploit during spring break. The scene everyone’s talking about? Where Jerry’s peen gets bitten off and flies towards the audience. Eek! [Daily Beast] Keep reading »
Hollywood is filled with blondes — both bottled and born — doing their best Marilyn Monroe imitations. Courtney Stodden, teen bride, was just the latest in a long, sordid trail of celebs to break out the pin curls and red lipstick when she did a photo shoot as the star in Hollywood this week. I’m pretty sure Norma Jean is rolling over in her grave. Seriously: stick a fork in this look ’cause it’s done.
