In the name of “research” — you know, furthering our collective understanding of the male psyche, physicality, and general essence — I highly recommend watching this video that was shot behind the scenes during the making of D&G’s Calcio manties campaign. It really sheds a lot of light on the male intellect, how men function in a group, and how, ultimately, manhood is as much of a posture as womanhood. OH, WAIT. Actually, it’s just a bunch of freakin’ hot dudes standing around in a wet shower looking all hot and damp and sexy in their underpants. But you should watch it anyway. I give it 700 stars. BTW, I need the number of the tall, dark-haired dude in the black panties, stat. [The Cut] Keep reading »
This video? It blew my mind. So to speak! Seriously, though. Three women — Carey Goldberg, Beth Jones, and Pamela Ferdinand — find themselves “of a certain age,” childless, and partner-less. Finally, one decides she’s tired of waiting around for Mr. Right. So, she orders herself some sperm from the sperm bank. Right when the order shows up, BAM, she meets a guy and gets pregnant. But then her friend is partner-less and childless. So, the first woman decides to give the second woman her sperm. Before the second woman can use it, BAM, she meets a guy and gets pregnant. But then there’s their third friend, who’s partner-less and childless. So, the second woman gives the third woman the sperm, and — well, you can probably guess the rest. So many happy endings, they wrote a book about it: Three Wishes: A True Story of Good Friends, Crushing Heartbreak, and Astonishing Luck on Our Way to Love and Motherhood. Who’s the dude with the super-sperm? Inquiring minds want to know. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Yes, this is what some people spent $500 for last weekend: a very expensive kitty toy. The look he gives his owner while he’s “playing” the “piano” is priceless, though. [Urlesque]

Oh, fickle, fickle ladies. Lynx body sprays — over in jolly old England, Axe Body Sprays are called Lynx — had no choice but to manufacture cologne that changes scent over time because we girls crave variety. Or as this commercial for Lynx Twist tells us, “Women get bored easily.”
I’m sorry, but the robot penile enhancement freaks me out. [Feministing] Keep reading »
Even though artists have been paying homage to the human form since the beginning, nudity and sex in art still cause a major commotion. Two works of art — one newish and one really old — are getting a lot of attention lately and making some people a little uncomfortable.
On “The View,” Barbara Walters described her trip to see one of Marina Abramovic‘s performance art pieces at MoMA over the weekend. The gist of it is that two people, sometimes male, sometimes female, stand in the nude facing one another. Patrons can walk through the two individuals if they’d like, and Barbara described her trouble getting past them without touching something in the video above, acknowledging that one of the men was more endowed than the other.

I used to watch A&E’s addiction series, “Intervention,” religiously. After a while, though, I couldn’t take it anymore. I appreciate the struggles of addiction, but the stories are so often so heartbreaking. Watching people in the throes of intense addiction is agonizing. Every once in a while, though, I tune in again. This Monday, I watched an episode featuring Ashley, whose drug-addicted mother handed her over to her aunt and uncle when she was a child. She became addicted to black tar heroin and Xanax after her grandfather died. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.
