Erotic offerings for women are getting better all the time. Just off the top of my head, I can think of James Deen and Make Love Not Porn, Bust magazine’s monthly “one handed read,” and the publishing boom after Fifty Shades Of Grey that has our office bookshelves heaving under new dominant/submissive erotica. (Seriously. Take some of it off our hands, please.)
In 2014, American women can look out for Dusk, a new channel featuring 24/7 porn aimed at women. Here’s everything you want to know about Dusk, after the jump! Keep reading »
What better way to celebrate ascendency to the throne than with a commemorative vibrator? I like the way you think, The Netherlands. The Dutch Prince Willem-Alexander is to become King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands tomorrow, when his mother, Queen Beatrix, abdicates the throne. In celebration/mockery of the prince’s boozy reputation — he is referred to as Prince Pils, after Pilsner beer — brewers around Europe are brewing their own speciality-themed lagers. Other vendors are cashing in with orange cakes, chocolates, and even lingerie — orange is the royal color. But my favorite monarchy trinket is an orange mini-vibrator called “Ik Willem,” which translates from Dutch to mean “I, William” or “I want it.” It’s even attached to an orange wristlet, so you don’t lose it while drunk. Why can’t the British monarchy be this fun?! [Facebook: De Sexshop Alkmaar via Raw Story]
Today in Awkward Diplomatic Kerfluffles: the entire country of Ukraine is pissed at the entire country of The Netherlands for airing a commercial that implies sexy, sexy Ukrainian women are a bunch of husband-stealing sexpots. The ad was made by a Dutch energy company called NLE and references the Euro 2012 soccer games, which will be hosted by the Ukraine. (On a side note, any other Americans find it utterly impossible to keep Europoeans and their various soccer tournaments straight?!) The ad shows a woman Googling the words “Ukrainian women” and coming up with images of super sexy hot Ukrainian ladies. She then immediately goes and purchases an at-home beer tap, presumably so her husband will stay on his couch and not leave her for some random blonde chick in the Ukraine during a soccer match. Ukraine is now pissy that the commercial will affect tourism during the Euro 2012 games. Keep reading »
Lost in translation? Maybe. That’s what Dutch magazine Jackie is claiming happened in its latest issue, in which a feature on Rihanna’s fashion influence refers to her as “the ultimate n***abitch.” The full text reads:
She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n***abitch and she displays that gladly — for her that means what’s on can come off. If that means she’ll be on stage half naked, then so be it. But Dutch winters aren’t like Jamaican [ed. note: Rihanna is actually Barbadian, not Jamaican] ones, so pick a clothing style in which your daughter can resist minus ten [temperatures]. No to the big sunglasses and the pornheels, and yes to the tiger print, pink ‘shizzle,’ and everything that glitters. Now let’s hope she won’t beat anybody up at daycare.
Oh, a “ghetto ass,” too?
