Olivier Zahm is a fashion editor whose sex life is an open book. Literally. Well, virtually, rather. The editor of the artsy fashion bible Purple, Olivier is known for posting salacious pictures and stories from his life online. In a big New York Times Styles profile on the lad, he likens himself to Warhol. He says, “Even in the bedroom I have my camera, I sleep with my camera, I have lunch with my camera.” What this often means is providing to his viewers and followers very graphic portraits of the women he’s with, who seem to rotate with shocking frequency. When Zahm takes trips from Paris to New York, the Purple Diary blog is updated constantly, and each day Zahm is kissing a different girl or taking photographs of someone’s breasts who were definitely not the same someone’s yesterday.

I’m kind of in love with Lucky‘s December 2010 issue, which is celebrating the shopping mag’s 10th anniversary by rehashing some of their best content. My favorite piece is the 100 fashion edicts that the editors live by — not dumb, lofty fashion tips like Rachel Zoe might suggest (“An elephant tusk will spice up any outfit!”), but real, practical advice. I had a serious “aha!” moment when I read the following piece of advice:
“Buy clothes that you’ll wear on a Tuesday afternoon, not a Saturday night — few people lead Saturday night lives.”

An interesting article out of Psychology Today about the fairly recent trend of bikini waxing and how it’s affecting male and female sexual relations. Sex therapist and psychiatrist Stephen Snyder, M.D. writes, “Among many young men that I see in treatment, the sight of a woman’s pubic hair produces the same revulsion that in my day might have greeted the sight of her armpit hair. Vulvar hair is regarded as unsightly — or even disgusting.” Yowza, seriously? I mean, in my years cavorting and conversating with the opposite sex, I have definitely noticed that dudes prefer some pubic grooming, with a solid percentage liking significant bush-wacking (landing strip, little triangle, etc.). Yes, there have definitely been a few dudes who liked a bald beav the most, but Snyder implies that men are increasingly preferring no hair whatsoever and find the presence of hair to be a complete turn-off. Please, gentleman readers of The Frisky, tell me you haven’t been so brainwashed by porn that you’re actually grossed out by pubes?
But Snyder also says that many women say the opinions of men aren’t why they spend upwards of $75 per session to have hot wax spread on their ladyparts. “‘You’re missing the point,’ say the waxing enthusiasts. ‘We do it because the result is worth it. Better sensation. Better sex.’” Keep reading »
