Why We Love It: Since women can have multiple orgasms, the Duke Vibrating Prostate Stimulator is the closest thing to evening the score with the fellas. It’s the first rechargeable, vibrating prostate stimulator for men (we’ve seen), guaranteeing more intense orgasms. With 8 vibration speeds and 3 pulsation patterns, it’s bound to blow his mind (and probably his load). Can you say “stocking stuffer”? [$99, Babeland] Keep reading »

Not every Christmas will be as magical as the ones when you still believed in Santa Claus. In fact, some of your adult Christmases are really going to suck. Kate Nash has the perfect Christmas song for everyone out there having a crappy holiday season: a new song called “I Hate You This Christmas” off her new EP, Have Faith With Kate Nash This Christmas. “I Hate You This Christmas” is about walking in on her boyfriend cheating with one of her friends and so she doesn’t have any holiday cheer.

Someone get this girl an eggnog. [Twitter.com/KateNash]
Wouldn’t Christmas be a little bit better if you knew that your local shopping mall Santa was actually a famous celebrity? Standing in line with 100 screaming children and waiting for your kid to freeze up on the Big Man’s lap would be that much more tolerable if you knew it was Ryan Gosling underneath that velvety, red suit…or maybe Beyoncé. And since there’s still time for malls to save Christmas, here’s a list of 15 celebs who would totally slay as Saint Nick.
When The Hairpin published a Guide To Eating Very Particular Feelings, we laughed, but it was a slightly bitter laugh, a nervous “Oh my God this is my life” chuckle.

Your self-esteem vs. the overwhelming pressure to start a restrictive New Years’ diet. There are plenty of articles out there about how to avoid overeating at holiday buffets and how to not let your mom’s passive aggressive comments spark a peppermint fudge binge, but we thought it was time to for a new set of holiday food and body rules: specifically, kinder, gentler, more realistic rules. Let’s stop over-complicating things and beating ourselves up for enjoying a slice of pie, OK? Here are 10 easy-to-follow commandments to help you make peace with your body during a season that’s all about eating… Keep reading »
