It’s not enough that model Anja Rubik is incredibly beautiful — she also seems to be really, effortlessly cool. And motivated! Rubik is about to launch the first issue of her new erotica-tinged mag, 25. The magazine will feature spreads with some of Anja’s best model friends, and interviews with some of her famous female friends. Rubik says she was wholly invested in making an erotica magazine that would represent the female gaze, so she enlisted a roster of female photographers for all the shoots. “It was bothering me how the world is nowadays – how we approach nudity and sexuality and beauty,” said Rubik of the venture. “Nowadays, sex and nudity is either so vulgar or so prude. So I wanted to create something inspiring, and beautiful, and sensual, to get people to think in a different way.“ [NYMag.com]
Let’s be frank here, this doesn’t look like a sausage costume, does it? Jill Makinson-Sanders, mayor of the English town of Louth, miscalculated when she took to the streets in this 8-foot-tall banger (that’s Brit speak for sausage) costume for the Olympic torch parade. And rightfully so, everyone mistook Sanders for a giant penis. “She didn’t carry the torch but when you saw her running down the street by the torch relay team nearby it really looked like she was wearing something obscene,” said Sandra Ellington, a resident of Louth. “Surely she could see that it looked more like a c**k. I can’t believe she could have been so stupid … she’s made the town a laughing stock,” added — rhymed! — another embarrassed resident. Oops. But Sanders is not apologizing. She defended her choice of attire saying, “I was not attending [the event] in my capacity as mayor.” You heard the lady. On her off time, she is free to do as she pleases.

My good friend Nick is getting hitched in September and I’m already scoping out which one of his groomsman I am going to try to bang. He posted their photos on his wedding website, you see.
However, there is always the possibility all of them will have girlfriends/have their own weddings by then, so my Plan B is former college roommates and co-workers. Plan C is minor, outlying relatives — although that’s more like an “in case of emergency break glass” scenario. Yup, my plan of attack is all prepared. I just don’t, you know, have my dress yet.
Befuddled about who it’s OK to schtup when you’re a single wedding guest and who is as off-limits as that hot intern from Accounts Payable? Why, then you need this handy dandy guide on who to sleep with at a wedding. Keep reading »
The combination of tits and drive can, apparently, cause the internet to crash. In the past six months I’ve watched as publications and writers I admire scrutinize Lana Del Rey for representing a “passive femininity,” gawk at young writer Marie Calloway for sleeping with older, more established male writers and shake their heads at Rihanna for not giving a f**k anymore and Instagramming intimate moments from her party-fueled lifestyle. What is more controversial than a woman using her sexuality in order to get ahead? I guess, not apologizing for it.
The main reason for feminist criticism in these cases is that the image of sexuality projected by these women doesn’t look “transgressive” — it looks too much like the role assigned by mainstream, for the benefit of the male gaze. These images read socially as “hot,” seemingly heterosexual and femme. I mean, I love it when women rock the boat with their sexual expression. I enjoy the “man repeller” fashion trend, I like seeing stars like Amy Poehler not in suggestive poses on the pages of magazines, I like the ugly-funny sex in “Girls.” But I also think there should be room for more. Why can’t a fantasy-driven femme, submissive, seemingly heterosexual display of female sexuality be a genuine one? Why can’t the image of a self-destructive Lana Del Rey in heart-shaped sunglasses be one of her own creation?
With those questions in mind, click through for a celebration of famous women who are using their sexuality and not apologizing for it.
The third season of TLC’s “Strange Sex” is back this Sunday and will include a segment about a man with a breastfeeding fetish. Yep. Jeff is sexually aroused by getting his wife Michelle pregnant and drinking her breast milk. He has been “feeding” off of her for the last year-and-a-half and claims that milk straight from the source cured his erectile dysfunction. (Wait. What!?)
“The first time I breast fed from Michelle, I just latched on and the milk started flowing and it was just such a huge turn on that I had to stop because I would have just finished right then and there,” Jeff confesses. Keep reading »
