French lingerie line Valega made some weird boob cartoons to promote their Finally Together push up bra. The ads feature animated breasts (with arms and legs) joyfully reuniting. In this commercial, right and left breasts meet at the airport and engage in a highly disturbing nipple bumping squishfest. The other spots take place respectively at a ship dock and on the set of a TV game show. I’ve included them after the jump for your viewing pleasure (maybe pleasure isn’t the right word). Breast anthropomorphism frightens me. [Ad Week] Keep reading »
It’s always uncomfortable to receive a gift you don’t want. You remember your childhood birthday parties. Just smile and say thanks for the Barbie you already have! Boise man, Andy Thompson, found himself in an extremely awkward position when he won a $3,000 voucher for breast augmentation surgery. For Mardi Gras, a local bar was giving the boob job away as a Fat Tuesday door prize, and Thompson was the lucky winner. When asked what he plans to do with his new pair of boobs, the 37-year-old joked “I was thinking about going with a C cup, but I think a small A is good for me.” But seriously, Thompson doesn’t know “what the plan is” for his unwanted prize since there are “so many good options.” Keep reading »
Sometimes I feel really bad for the shit that strippers have to deal with! A 16th birthday party filled with testosterone-laden horndogs is right on top of that list. Keep reading »
I’ve been asked by people on different ends of the fat lover spectrum about advice being a good ally. From the “My lover doesn’t see how beautiful she is and won’t have sex with the lights on” to the “My lover uses the term ‘fat’ to describe themselves but I’ve always thought of that as a derogatory word … isn’t it?” For Fat Sex Week, I’ve highlighted some of the best ways to be a good ally to your fat lover.
This is all from my limited perspective, you should obviously be in good communication with your lover to find out what works for them and how they operate in the world. Communication is an essential sex toy!
This advice applies to folks of all sizes, not just thinner folks partnered (in all the myriad ways one can partner) with fat folks. And a lot of it is good advice for sex in general, regardless of whether or not your partner is fat. Keep reading »
Playing with the concept of French designer Raymond Loewy’s 1933 streamlined, pencil sharpener and the idea that “sex sells,” Francesco Morackini created the Dildomaker as part of his “tools” series. This gadget, which penifies any household item with the twist of a crank — a carrot, a hot dog, a candle, a piece of wood — is meant to make you question the relationship between yourself and manufactured products. How very high art. This is like the adult version of a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker. Fun for days. I hope the Dildomaker soon becomes available to the public. [Cargo Collective]
I originally planned to make this a list of the best menstruation moments in pop culture, but quickly discovered that Hollywood in particular does not have a very positive track record when it comes to tackling the crimson wave in movies and TV. Books and music have done a little better, but for the most part, periods have been portrayed either as something to be revolted by or feared, or for over-the-top comedic effect. So, instead this list evolved in the most memorable menstruation moments in movies, music, books and on TV, for better or worse. I know that there are others I didn’t include, so share any additional memorable period references in pop culture in the comments! Keep reading »
