A few months ago, I wrote about a woman named Sheryl who blogs at “Musings of an Irate Commuter.” That post was about her getting revenge on a man who did her wrong, a guy who saw her on her daily commute through Grand Central Terminal and posted a Missed Connections ad about her. They started dating and sleeping together, but then she discovered he had a girlfriend. Her revenge? Posting every detail of their relationship on her blog — including photos! — so his girlfriend would find out what a cheating scum bag he was. That story showed what chutzpah Sheryl has, and so does this one. Grand Central Terminal is a major landmark in Sheryl’s life. As I mentioned before, she commutes through Grand Central every day, and as a result she’s developed a real love for the beautiful building. Her love for it is so grand, she’s often joked that she should be “Miss Grand Central,” but unfortunately, the title does not exist — but why shouldn’t it? Sheryl writes on her blog, “What was to stop me from just saying I *am* Miss Grand Central?” Nothing, it turns out. Keep reading »

So, of all the conceivable phallic objects a desperately horny person could put in their vajayjay, a rolled-up Donny Osmond poster is not the first thing that comes to my mind. But I am not a Donny Osmond fan and I stopped decorating my walls with posters after college. Also, I’m not a freak. However, a woman in the U.K. is and she did very dirty things with a poster of the squeaky clean star. One of the cases featured on a new BBC3 show called “Bizarre ER” involved a woman who went to the hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen and genital areas. Doctors discovered a rolled-up poster of Donny Osmond shoved inside her vagina. I have many questions about this. First, did she forget she put the poster inside her? Why didn’t she just pull it out? Why did she put it in to begin with? Also, how big was this poster? Are we talking life-size or one of those Tiger Beat tear sheets? I need more details. Also, ow.

In Xiamen, China, an amusement park used a porn movie poster to promote its family-friendly Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Rather than using movie posters related to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” starring Johnny Depp, someone used a poster for “Pirates,” an X-rated movie starring Jesse Jane and Evan Stone, instead. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was nominated for five Academy Awards. “Pirates” won an AVN Award for Best All-Girl Sex Scene. How a porn movie poster came to hang alongside real “Pirates of the Caribbean” promotional materials may forever remain a mystery, but it probably didn’t hurt that the “Pirates” movie poster chosen featured the comely, blond, and busty Jane.

I guess someone wandered around Coachella throwing water-filled condoms in people’s faces? It was hot, so I suppose they liked it. Since this is 2010, someone was there to videotape the results, and because this is the internet, someone did a second version in which the condom water bombs are seen exploding in reverse slow motion. The effect is completely strange. Is this CGI? Is this real life? Is this actually happening? I feel like this is some sort of subliminal advertising campaign for Terminator-brand condoms. You never know. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Photographer Holly Norris says on her website, “Rarely, if ever, are women with disabilities portrayed in anything other than an asexual manner, for ‘disabled’ bodies are largely perceived as ‘undesirable.’” To combat that perception, Norris has chosen to spoof the highly identifiable American Apparel ads, which the company claims feature “real women,” though only real women who fit a very specific look — young, thin, and uber-sexual. In her series “American Able,” Norris has photographed Jes, a disabled woman, in American Apparel clothes and in the style of AA ads, in order to “reveal the ways in which women with disabilities are invisibilized in advertising and mass media.” Norris’ photographs are beautiful and I love the positive and forward-thinking mission of the work, which doesn’t just criticize mass market thinking but also presents an alternative. As for Jes? Her photographs have more personality than all the AA ads I’ve ever seen put together. Take that, Dov Charney.
Check out a few more photos after the jump and then check out the entire series on Norris’ website. [Holly Norris] Keep reading »
Years ago, I interviewed Tillamook Cheddar, a dog who creates art. I was reminded of Tillie when I saw the work of Alexander Esguerra. In these pieces, a couple covered in paint lies down on a blank canvas and has sex. The subjects are straight and gay, Caucasian and Chinese-American, married and adulterous — all of which makes you wonder what kind of picture a certain type of couple creates while making love. The one on the left looks like an orgy. The one on the right looks like they were going at it standing up. If you want to get an eyeful in person, Esguerra’s “It’s Just Sex” show opens May 22 at 676 Broadway in Manhattan. Keep reading »
