“Game Of Thrones” Turned A Consensual Sex Scene Into A Rape Scene And Ruined Everything

"Game Of Thrones" Turned A Consensual Sex Scene Into A Rape Scene And Ruined Everything
"Game Of Thrones" FAIL

Fair warning: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Goddammit, I am so pissed off. On last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” a climactic and much-anticipated consensual sex scene between incestuous brother-sister duo Jaime and Cersei Lannister was twisted into a violent rape scene for seemingly no reason at all, ruining the sexual tension some of us pervs enjoyed between the two and potentially screwing up the narrative for future episodes. And, to add insult to injury, both the episode’s director and the actor who plays Jaime are defending the scene as if it wasn’t a gross departure from George R. R. Martin’s original text, and are arguing that the rape was actually consensual. For the love of the Lord of Light, WHY? Keep reading »

Terry Richardson Reportedly Offering Vogue Photo Shoots In Exchange For Sex

Terry Richardson Reportedly Offering Vogue Photo Shoots In Exchange For Sex

Pervtographer Terry Richardson is (allegedly) at it again! Yesterday, model Emma Appleton (right) posted the above screenshot (left) of a Facebook message she received from Richardson, outright offering her a spot in a Vogue shoot if she agreed to fuck him. Hmm, I wonder if Anna Wintour approved of this? Appleton posted the screenshot initially to Instagram, but when Gawker and other media outlets picked up on the story, she deleted the photo and her Twitter. Richardson’s rep, who sure is being kept busy these last few months, told Buzzfeed, “This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text.”

Well, it’s not a text, it’s a Facebook message received via the messenger app. But also, how is it “obviously” a fake? Is there some “obvious” Photoshop giveaway that I’m missing? Is, say, Terry Richardson’s real Facebook account under a different name and therefore this isn’t him? I mean, how is it OBVIOUSLY fake? I’m just wondering. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Hey Airlines, Stop Overbooking Flights On Purpose

Frisky Rant: Hey Airlines, Stop Overbooking Flights On Purpose

If you work for American Airlines, or any airline for that matter, buckle up. You’re in for a bumpy ride.

I booked and paid for my flight months in advance, received a confirmation and a seat number and was pleasantly surprised when I got to the airport, checked into my American Airlines flight and received a “Priority Seating Pass,” instead of a usual boarding pass. For some reason, I was shuffled through the “priority” security line (score!) and arrived at my gate several hours before takeoff. I was going from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Nashville, Tennessee, with a group of other women for a close friend’s bachelorette party and wanted to make sure my seat (which I received in my confirmation, but didn’t see on my “priority pass”) was with the rest of the group. Upon approaching the attendant at the gate, I was informed that I would not receive a seat until the plane began boarding and that my “priority seating pass” was essentially a priority standby pass.

Do You Live In Cheatersville? Study Says…

this or that poll cheating

A cheating heat map is a strange kind of bedfellow, monitoring the bones of baring it all. What ignites a desire to expose the law of averages when it comes to cheating? Does knowing where the ‘unfaithful’ gather give us a moral compass of who is who? Are we supposed to believe that getting bored with your partner is a sport only the rich can afford?

Style Stealer: Kate Hudson's Insanely Comfy-Looking Jersey Jumpsuit

I’ve seen a lot of jersey jumpsuits recently, but despite the guaranteed promise of comfort, they always look so dumpy on the hanger. It wasn’t until seeing this photo of Kate Hudson that I realized they can actually look quite chic and feminine on, especially paired with dainty jewelry and a fitted denim jacket. Pile on a little more jewelry and add heels and you can wear it out to dinner. Surprisingly versatile, no? Get the look down below… Keep reading »

The Case For Not Sharing A Bed

Woman in bed with insomnia

Holly Allen would beg to differ with the idea that the happiest couples sleep less than an inch apart. She recently found herself going to bed in her own guest room when her husband was sick, and despite the fact that the room only has a twin bed, she had an incredible night’s sleep, she writes on Slate. “No tug of war over the covers, no pokes in the back to alert me to my snoring, no waking up to a wiggly kid (or two) in bed with us. In fact, no waking up at all.” An informal survey of her co-workers found many of them agree with her—so why do couples typically share a bed? Read more on Newser…
