When you become president, something in your brain snaps. You’re a normal person for a while, and then, as soon as you take your oath on Inauguration Day, the part of your brain that normally makes sure you don’t get too weird with sex collapses in on itself, and a new game begins. The rules are different.
And I’m not just talking about infidelity (of which at least Jefferson, Harding, FDR, JFK, LBJ and Clinton were all guilty), and I’m not just talking about regularly having sex outside (of which John Quincy “Without a Doubt Our Ugliest President” Adams was guilty). I’m talking about the weird stuff. The weird stuff. Read more …
Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?

It’s Tuesday, so he’s working, but we don’t feel too bad because he celebrated over the weekend by taking a trip to Camp David and brushing up on his bowling skills.

So, would you wanna bowl with Barack or kick it with a past prez on his big day? See how Barack’s birthday plans stack up. Keep reading »
Painter Justine Lai’s series of erotic oil paintings depicting the artist banging it out with U.S. Presidents massage two nerdy pleasure centers: history and sex. Are you reading this, History Channel? Less Nazis, more Presidential pegging please! The artist’s intent is to break down the mythological idea of the President, expose their inherent humanity and vulnerability, and to comment on the relationship between sex and politics. Since, after all, power is the ultimate aphrodisiac. The work could easily have been an adolescent lark, a snarky art nerd having some frat fun with former Commanders-in-Chief. Instead the paintings transcend this, and end up being rude, gentle, and compelling. Maybe even sexy? Also, you’d never think Abraham Lincoln would close his eyes while getting a knobber.
