Designer Nguyen Minh Tuan wanted to create a dress that would raise awareness about World AIDS Day (which is every December 1, FYI). So she cobbled together more than 700 condoms to create this very latexy confection. [Dog and Pony Show]
A new study found that college guys with higher levels of testosterone (the macho ones!) were more likely to use condoms than their less manly peers. This initially confused researchers because high levels of testosterone are linked to risk-taking. And you’d think that unprotected sex is risky behavior. But no, the young men of today seem to feel that safe sex is the risky move. Why? Because it makes him more popular! Keep reading »
One of the things I’ve noticed about Occupy Wall Street is that there are really a lot of attractive people involved. Not that I would ever characterize a very large group of protestors as “dirty hippies,” unlike, say, Fox News. But I hardly expected my lady boner to have its interest piqued with such frequency at a protest. When Julie and I attended an OWS General Assembly meeting, I am embarrassed to admit that I leaned over and whispered to her, “Oooh, that guy is hot” not once, not twice, but at least four times. So much so that I considered starting my own committee — anyone can start one and there are committees for everything from medical to PR to consciousness raising. I wanted to start a committee for matchmaking. I mean, we’re talking about a bunch of single, like-minded individuals who at least know they have something very important to them in common: fighting corporate greed! I could be the Patti Stanger of Occupy Wall Street, I thought. Keep reading »
A new sex survey conveniently sponsored by Trojan found that people in Los Angeles are getting busy more often than the rest of us. According to the survey, Angelinos do it about 135 times a year, while the rest of us poor cads only get laid about 120 times a year. They also scored the highest in sexual adventurousness. I’m not impressed. We all would be more sexually adventurous if it was 75 degrees and sunny every day where we lived. Anyhow, don’t be too jealous of those highly sexed Angelinos. They were found to be the biggest fakers — of orgasms that is. Sigh. Actors. And their satisfaction level was not ranked number one. That prize goes to the people of Philly, who were found to do it less often, but enjoy it more. It’s quality, not quantity, right? Ring that Liberty Bell! [LA Times] Keep reading »
Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s staff has the same concern as men afraid of clap: protecting their Weiners, er, wieners. The latter group can protect themselves with these distasteful but nevertheless amusing $4.95 Weiner condoms. Ten points to the perv who thought to buy the domain name for “weiner condoms.” [Weiner Condoms via Jezebel] Keep reading »
[I would know a woman and I were not compatible] if she had condoms in her house, that would just f**kin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.
– Will.i.am on his dating dealbreakers in Elle. Excuse me? And again, excuse me! How is it tacky to have condoms in your house? It means you are a responsible woman who protects herself. How could that possibly be a turn off? Wouldn’t that be reassuring? Ohhhh, wait … I get it. Women who keep condoms in their houses are sluts. And Will.i.am is not looking for a slut. He’s looking for a virgin who uses baby wipes. That’s another one of his dealbreakers by the way — if she doesn’t have baby wipes in her bathroom. Let’s get angry about his statement in the comments. It will make me feel better. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
