Sculptor Peter Rolfe’s handy storage units are great for storing jewelry, underwear, or assorted random items, especially if you like your drawers in the shape of boobs or a six-pack. Created out of birch plywood, the headless, three-drawer cupboards are sure to keep your house guests on their toes. Apartment Therapy’s commenters are responding with mixed reviews: “vulgar,” “eyesore,” “hyper-sexual.” What do you think — poor taste or très chic? [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »
The lady blogs are all a-cluck over a piece in the latest issue of Marie Claire in which writer Lea Goldman practically begs her fellow gym-goers to “put your clothes on already!” — in the locker room that is. Goldman writes that she’s tired of women using the gym locker room to perform various tasks that would otherwise be done in the confines of one’s home — clipping toenails, brushing teeth, plucking eyebrows, and even “blow-drying their girly bits” — while she is simply trying to “get in, get out.” The thing is, Goldman knows her discomfort is her problem, but she still wants everyone else to bend to her whims.

It seems like a lot of actresses over 40 are stripping naked for roles these days. Sandra Bullock did it in “The Proposal,” Marisa Tomei got nakey in “The Wrestler” and “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead,” Mary-Louise Parker took it all off on “Weeds,” Diane Keaton stripped in “Something’s Gotta Give,” and Kathy Bates went sans clothes in “About Schmidt.” What’s up with these relative oldsters getting undressed for the big and little screens?

Recently, my friend became a naturist. I re-read her email twice to make sure she hadn’t said “naturalist”. But no: there it was in 12 point Verdana, as clear as the shock on my face: “I’ve joined a naturism society”.
I couldn’t be more shocked had she joined a satanic cult. Not only is she English to an almost stereotypical degree (reserved to the point of inhibition – or so I thought – and sporting milk-pale skin prone to burning) but she lives for Doris Day musicals and her politics make Sarah Palin look liberal.
And yet her new hobby is meeting up with people she doesn’t know… and taking off all her clothes. Keep reading »
If you’re an Arrested Development fan (if you’re not, shame on you!) you’ve certainly had a good laugh or three at Tobias Funke, the never-nude. In sitcom humor, the idea of a grown man who refuses to be naked is funny but, let me tell you, in real life it is not. In fact, it’s near tragic.
My first boyfriend was, well, my first everything. He certainly wouldn’t have won a Brad Pitt lookalike contest, in fact, he probably wouldn’t have even been invited to compete, but he was funny and that’s how he hooked me. We were both in high school, but he had more bedroom experience than I did so I always let him take the lead, which is why I never questioned his insistence on leaving on his undershirt. That’s right, he’d take off his polo or his long-sleeve t-shirt but never that white Hanes V-neck. I always thought he kept it on just in case the parents returned home early. Now that I look back on it, I see how absurd that was. Keep reading »
Harry Potter isn’t afraid to put it all out there. Daniel Radcliffe, who starred as the magical teen titan Harry Potter, earlier this week admitted he has neurological disorder, dyspraxia, which affects his coordination. But he can still cast a spell on you! Just check out his pony play spread in the September issue of Vogue. He’s riding horses and they’re all bareback — giddy up! Although the weird fetal/grandpa shot creeps us out, we’ll blame it (like the Miley Cyrus photo controversy) on famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. Sure, he says he stripped down to promote the new Broadway play he’s horsing around in — Equus — but we’ll take any excuse to see this barely legal babe in the buff! [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
With skin cancer making fake and bake salons passÃ©, our half-hearted bronze is the result of layers upon layers of tinted lotion rather than years of amazing Latin genetics like Eva Mendes. The star of We Own The Night is a freaking hottie, has the kind of curvy body that should knock some sense into the eating disorder community, not to mention a goofy-meets-exotic appeal that makes her sex on a stick for women as well as men. PETA’s tactics are a little annoying in our opinion, but we (and probably all of mankind) appreciate their “I’d Rather Go Naked” campaigns — especially this one. Keep reading »
Dude, we realize she’s been airbrushed, but a super preggo Christina Aguilera on the cover of Marie Claire looks super gorgeous. Why is it that pregnant ladies can get all nudie and it’s considered beautiful and elegant and sweet, but non-knocked up women getting nekkid for the camera is considered porn? Is it because being in the pregnant state is considered clean and innocent? We’re not saying we disagree, but it’s just odd because, clearly, if you’re with child, you’re no virgin, unless your name is Mary and you hail from Nazareth. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
Admittedly, we’re not the most religiously educated group of folks on the internet, but maybe someone should take away Mitt Romney’s Book of Mormon and give him a good hard spanking with it. An ABC News blogger notes that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Romney pointed out the large leaves in a couple’s front lawn and said, “Adam and Eve would not have looked as promiscuous if they had had leaves this big.” Um, correct us if we’re wrong, but Adam and Eve didn’t start rocking the foliage until after they ate the forbidden fruit and became ashamed of their nekkidness. For a man who wears his faith on his sleeve, Romney is scarily ignorant to God’s word. And second of all, if you’re the only man on Earth and you have sex with the only woman on Earth, how does that make you promiscuous? [ABC News] Keep reading »
