Zut alors! French, the language of l’amour, is “the world’s sexiest accent” no more. According to a poll of 5,000 women worldwide, cited in the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper, ladies most desire to be whispered sweet nothings in an Irish lilt, followed by Italian declarations of amore. Scottish was named the fourth sexiest accent, followed by French, Australian and then English. Now, anyone who has heard Chris O’Dowd’s adorable acecnt in “Bridesmaids” won’t disagree with these findings. But you know who does disagree? My French dude, who sniffed, “Misinformation, that’s a British newspaper, they hate the French because their women love us.” So there you go.

“One time we were having sex, and I was looking up at the ceiling, thinking about, ‘What am I going to buy at the grocery store tomorrow? What am I going to do with my kids tomorrow?’ One time after we had sex, I cried. He said, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t do this for a while.’ So maybe he did have a heart — or half a heart. But I knew I needed his financial help.”
Alleged mistress Ginger White came forward one week ago claming she has had a 13-year-long affair with Herman Cain. (Cain suspended his campaign this weekend, citing “distractions,” which presumably allude to White’s allegations and several sexual harassment allegations against him.) This weekend she spoke to The Daily Beast about their sex life. Instead of juicy, it’s pretty depressing!

I’m all for frank talk about sex, pornography, and women’s ladyparts. In fact, I try to freak out Amelia with my favorite gross phrase for my nether regions on the regular. [Ick. -- Editor] But even I don’t want to think about Brazilian waxing while I’m sipping my morning coffee.
Anyone watching “The View” this morning was not so lucky: Whoopi Goldberg began discussing her love for porn and then criticized the changing appearances of the actresses’ pudendas. Really, that’s the word she used — pudendas. Keep reading »
Sexting is, like, so not cool. Only one percent of kids age 10 to 17 have shared naked pics of themselves, according to new data released today in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers on the APA study disputed a commonly cited piece of data which said that one in five — or 20 percent — of kids ages 14 to 24 had sexted. But that definition of “sext” had included sexy text messages without photos, as well as photos “no more revealing than what someone might see at a beach,” according to the AP. This new study asked teens — and only teens — to be more explicit about the images that they send and receive. Clearly the past inclusion of twentysomethings in the survey pool skewed the results. In fact, the younger kids are, the less likely they are to sext.
Wait, you mean America was whipped up into a frenzy over a teen sex panic that turned out to be nothing? You don’t say! Keep reading »
