If you watch HBO’s tit-laden nigh-incoherent castle-intrigue juggernaut “Game of Thrones “(or as I like to call it, “The Peter Dinklage Show”) you’ll remember that a couple weeks ago there was an episode with a scene involving two prostitutes.

HAHA, JUST KIDDING, THAT’S EVERY EPISODE. That doesn’t help distinguish them at all. Anyway, just trust me, there were two prostitutes and they get naked — because really that is what 80 percent of the women in this series are there for — and I couldn’t help but notice that their, uh, ladygardens were shockingly well maintained. Like meticulously trimmed topiaries. So much so that it distracted me right out of the scene. Keep reading »

Last week I told you about “The Real Housewives of New York City”‘s Cindy Barshop’s diabolical plan to cover our vaginas in fur and feathers at her Completely Bare salon. Here’s a video demonstration of how the Foxy Bikini and Carnivale merkin procedures are done. For the record, I don’t really feel the need to “change it up down there” with a pink “fluffed” pubic wig made of fox fur. I’m not eager to have my privates look like a peacock. And no, I don’t think plumage makes the UPA (upper p**sy area) look slimmer. This is embarrassing. And I suspect both merkins would be uncomfie underneath a pair of panties. Please don’t let animal vagina become a trend. I beg you. [Buzzfeed]

10 Other Great Uses For The Merkin

If you haven’t heard of a merkin, you are in for a treat. “The Real Housewives of New York City”‘s Cindy Barshop is bringing back the merkin, a wig (yes, a wig) for the pubic area. Cindy believes she has a winner here with her “foxy bikini.” Apparently women around the world are screaming with excitement because you can now buy a real fox fur Merkin for only $225. But really, who would actually buy a pube wig?

Gawker.com accurately described this product as something in a “nightmare porno from the id of Dr. Seuss.” That or it’s those trees from Horton Hears a Who. While Cindy might be upset, I think there are much better uses for the fox-furred work of art. Here are some of my ideas, but I’m sure you can get creative and come up with hundreds more. Read more…

Vajazzling is so 2010. According to Completely Bare owner and “Real Housewives of New York City” cast member Cindy Barshop, it’s all about merkins this season. Her two new lines of luxury pubic wigs will be sold at Completely Bare waxing salons for outrageous prices. Yay! The first, called Foxy Bikini, is a combo wax job/pubic wig treatment wherein the woman is waxed bare and her original pubic hair is replaced with a wig made of fox fur that comes in various shades. Including pink! The other is the Carnivale Bikini, which is a vaginal headdress made of brightly colored feathers. “Feathers aren’t just for birds anymore … they’re also perfect for vaginas,” Cindy said. Um, I strongly disagree with this statement. I am not wearing fox fur or feathers down there. Et toi, ladies? [TMZ]

10 Famous Merkins On Screen (NSFW)

Famous Merkins On Screen
Actors who are committed to their craft will go to great lengths to ensure that they’re portraying their character as realistically as possible. In some case, that means wearing a merkin. A merkin, for those of you who don’t know, is a pubic wig. It’s donned by actors and actresses who need their down-there hair to fit the time period of the film they’re in. And considering most actresses likely engage in some sort of pubic grooming, a merkin ensures they can play the part realistically without having to grow their own pubes out accordingly. Additionally, a merkin can work as a sort of shield for the actor’s own sexy bits, if they’re not comfortable showing them off. Evan Rachel Wood had her first experience with going full-frontal on film when she was making the upcoming HBO movie, “Mildred Pierce.” alongside merkin expert Kate Winslet. “I was a lot more nervous than I thought I was going to be,” she said. “I looked at Kate and she was like, ‘You’ve got to do it. Trust me, it’s so brave. Put a merkin on and you’ll be fine.’ … Let’s just say, I had to wear a wig because it was in the ’30s, and everything had to look like it was in the ’30s.” In other words, expect bush — lots of bush — when the film debuts March 27. [XfinityTV.com] The merkin has become a popular prop in many mainstream movies. Here’s a look back at other famous moments in pubic-wiggery.

The Merkin Goes Couture

TV (Fall 2008) and Do Estilista (Spring 2009)

Who knew a pubic wig could be so chic? Thanks to Trend de la Creme for pointing out the merkin’s influence on high-fashion, with pubic shaped cutouts and panels showing up on designs from Kostas Murkudis and Alexandre Herchcovitch. I’ve yet to see one of these strut past me on the street, but the first lady who does, will get my award for fashion bad ass. Keep clicking to see more… [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

Flash Your Vagina With LED Light Up Merkin

Have a hard time directing traffic through your tunnel of love? Well, there’s a new light-up merkin (that’s a wig for your lady bits) on the market. Seemingly made from troll hair, the furball for your feminine side has also got LED lights with two “lure” modes so you can literally flash the object of your affection. Plus, you can direct the light to hold their gaze — nothing like blinding a partner right as they get to see you naked! To get the faux hair down there, all you’ve got to do is place it on with the patented toupee tape. That sticky stuff lasts up to six weeks, but beware, the company behind the merkin, Playazon, whose marketing tagline is, oddly enough, the “online source for that burning sensation,” also warns, “We strongly advise NOT to use this tape as an impromptu waxing substitute — IT CAN REMOVE MORE THAN JUST YOUR HAIR!” Eek! Even at a reasonable $45, this flashlight clearly isn’t gonna turn anyone on. [Trend Hunter]
