Halloween Costumes: Juno & Paulie Bleeker Or Blair Waldorf & Chuck Bass On The Cheap!

Earlier this week, I let you in on how to be the Palin family for Halloween. Now, here’s the scoop on how to be two of pop culture’s most famous couples–Juno/Paulie Bleeker and Blair Waldorf/Chuck Bass. Yeah, we know, Chuck and Blair aren’t officially a couple, but they’ve gotten down and dirty in the past and their sexual chemistry is heating up this season. So after the jump, find costumes for these characters that you can totally re-use after Halloween. And remember, some of these items you can probably find in your own closet or your local thrift store, so spending a lot of money is unnecessary. Keep reading »

Plan B In Pop Culture

Births to teenagers are rising (435,000 babies were born to mothers between 15 and 19 years old in 2006, the first increase in nearly 15 years). Since government funded abstinence-only education doesn’t contribute much to teens’ knowledge about sex, STDs, and pregnancy, they can either get the information from their parents or pop culture. And because most parents have a hard time broaching the subject, pop culture it is. The things is, movies and TV shows aren’t doing their part when it comes to educating young women about their options. And, no, we’re not talking about abortion. As we wrote earlier, a small study showed that many young women haven’t even heard of Plan B, and they definitely don’t know how to get it. Below, a few examples of cases where Hollywood skipped over Plan B this year, limiting teen girls’ options to keeping the baby, putting it up for adoption, or having an abortion. Keep reading »

Juno Lied: Pregnancy Tests Aren’t Plan B, People

Storytime! Over at Feministing’s newly relaunched site, a teenage user on their new community board recounts a story of trying to buy a pregnancy test with her best friend at a drug store and being refused because of her age. When the teen presents the fact that she legally has the right to buy a pregnancy test despite being “underage”, the drugstore teller tells her she shouldn’t be having sex in the first place. After much back and forth the teens were finally able to procure the test, but only after a teller in his late-teens allowed them. This is why a person’s personal beliefs on sexual activity shouldn’t be a factor when they’re on the job. Oh and the teen wasn’t pregnant in the end, thank goodness. [Feministing] Keep reading »

    Good Dates Make Bad Boyfriends

    Don’t you just love it when a guy can adapt to any situation, charming everyone and everything, including the pants off you? Well, sadly, it turns out your hot date may turn out to be too hot to handle. A new study of 97 young singles, recently published in the journal Communications Report, found that people who are adaptable socially have a harder time having healthy relationships. A predisposition to self-monitoring may help them attract friends and lovers, but at home they’re bound to adjust themselves in the same way so their partners never get an accurate sense of how they really feel.
