Tila Tequila first became famous in the mid 2000s for being the most popular girl on MySpace. She was on the cover of Maxim and starred in her own bisexual dating reality show on MTV, “A Shot at Love,” in which men and women vied for her heart. She was engaged to Casey Johnson at the time of the heiress’s death in 2010 and seemingly spiraled into drug addiction and mental health issues, even attempting suicide in 2012, eventually dabbling in rehab. In 2012, she apparently converted to Judaism. So where is Tila now? Oh, she’s posting pro-Hitler rants on her Facebook page and blog and has rebranded herself “Hitila” (you know, Hitler + Tila) as well as the goddess “Tilisis.” Yesterday, she posted the above photo to her Facebook page (it has since been removed), which pictures the glamour model wearing a red swastika armband and a SS uniform cap, standing in front of Auschwitz. Yeah. Keep reading »
Most women don’t regularly find themselves compelled to touch a dirty pair of men’s underwear (I don’t even want to think about those unidentified streaks and neither do you!), but perhaps that’s for the best. A new study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology found that touching “sexually laden stimuli” (read as: men’s boxers), made women more willing to take big financial risks such as throwing money away on gambling or dropping major ducats on big-ticket items or just overspending on little ones. (Surprise! Heterosexual men behaved similarly after touching women’s bras.) Keep reading »
Shit happens. I’ve lost track of the number of married men I know who have lost their wedding bands. Many men, including my husband, have lost their bands within the first year of marriage. In fact, if you are a married and still have your original wedding band, I applaud you.
The reality is, most men are not used to wearing sentimental jewelry. Thus, generally speaking, they don’t exercise caution when wearing their wedding rings. They don’t consider removing their rings before swimming in the ocean. They are blissfully unaware that their fingers shrink in cold weather, making the ring looser. They have yet to develop a protective reflex, balling their fist to prevent the ring from slipping off the finger. But when the chances of a man losing his wedding band is high, the question becomes, “When you lose your ring, how do you tell your wife?” Here are some dos and don’ts… Keep reading »
It’s that time of year when the weather gets a bit cooler and you’ve got to pull out your winter gear — big coat, gloves, hat and scarf — there’s nothing out of the ordinary about that. But one artist is raising eyebrows with his choice of ‘scarves’ that aren’t wool or even silk … they’re white women. Read more on Huffington Post…
After only three weeks in existence, the Snuggle House in Madison, Wisconsin, where cuddling professionals hugged, spooned and cuddled their clients for $60 an hour, has shut down. The cuddling business was accused of being a front for prostitution, a lawyer for the Snuggle House owner confirmed to the AP today. A comment on the business’ Facebook page confirmed, “The pushback and harassment is not worth it, honestly.”
Paying for sex, nudity, drugs and alcohol were forbidden during snuggling sessions. Customers signed a two-page waiver before a session began and security cameras and panic buttons were located in each bedroom. However, attorneys for the city of Madison were were skeptical of “therapeutic cuddling” and had delayed its opening several times.
According to The Times-Picayune, prior to the closing, the city had planned to draft an ordinance to regulate snuggling even further. City attorneys claimed they want to protect the cuddling professionals — three women and one man — from sexual assault. While safety is surely a worthy cause (and one that the cameras, panic buttons and waivers suggest the Snuggle House were aware of), the city’s explanation for their concern left something to be desired. According to one city attorney, cuddling leads to sex, always, ergo the employees must be getting sexually assaulted if they are not actually prostitutes. Keep reading »
You are very kind! The response is primarily very positive. I just want to show that you can be a blustery hairy “alpha” male and a feminist at the same time. Plus, I love affirmative action. Misogyny will almost definitely outlast homophobia and racism on this planet and it’s because of systems that were put in place forever ago and assiduously maintained and strengthened over the years. So we’ve got to tear those down. And when I say “we,” that includes men. And guess what? MY LOT, as a straight white man, IMPROVES when women’s lot improves. A rising tide raises all ships > there are more women then men on the planet > if we improve women’s lot, the world is BETTER FOR EVERYONE. HOW DO PEOPLE NOT REALIZE THIS? It infuriates me, then I turn that fury into jokes, essays, basic human kindness and hard work to try and make the world a better place for everyone. WOE unto the man who doesn’t actively try to make the world better for women. Regardless of one’s spiritual beliefs, his soul will be torn apart by neon griffins in hell.

Y’all know I have a special place in my heart for the Jolie-Pitt kids. Angelina Jolie escorted 67 percent of her brood — Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox — out and about in Sydney, Australia. Shi and Zahara shared big sis duties, taking turns holding Knox’s hand. Click on for more pics (because I can never just download one).
