Top 10 “Sexy” Halloween Costume Ideas for Men

October 20, 2013

1 Comment

You’d think by now we’d be unshockable, but every year we continue to be flabbergasted by the sheer range of Halloween costumes that are sexed up. (Sexy cheeseburger, seriously?!) What’s not shocking at all: That 99.9% of these costumes are for women. So here are some ideas for men who are looking to gratuitously sex up their Halloween costume this year, just to even the effed-up playing field. Disturbing results and lady boners guaranteed (and yes, Friend of Curious George: You can leave your yellow hat on):

  1. Sexy Walter White (tighty whities)
  2. Sexy Homeless Guy (criminally low-riding pants)
  3. Sexy John Boehner Crying (tell the ladies you’re weeping over wage inequality and a lack of paternity leave)
  4. Sexy Jon Stewart (suit & tie without the pressed shirt)
  5. Sexy Mr. Potato Head (googly eyes over the nipples, big nose over the genitals)
  6. Sexy Deadbeat Dad (wear a wifebeater and play hard to get)
  7. Sexy Bob Ross (invite the ladies up to see your art collection, with a wink)
  8. Sexy Man in the Yellow Hat (hang the yellow hat over your crotch)
  9. Sexy Crash Test Dummy (add a zipper to your mouth and you’re basically a gimp)
  10. Sexy Kitten (black body-conscious unitard)


Top 10 Timely Halloween Costumes for Couples

October 20, 2013


Lo and her guy a couple Halloweens ago

It’s only three weeks to Halloween, which means that if you plan on doing something more elaborate than throwing a sheet over your head and saying BOO! a lot, you better get your act together soon. So, with that in mind, here are our top ten ideas for timely Halloween costumes for couples. We make no promises that every costume below will kink up your sex life, but you’ll certainly have fun trying):

  1. Walt and Jesse from Breaking Bad, in their haz-mat suits and gas masks. (Definitely keep the masks on for sex!)
  2. So you prefer a little teasing and torture, BDSM-style? Then one of you is Jesse in handcuffs and the other is Todd, serving Jesse ice cream (it doesn’t have to be Americone Dream, but it can’t be vanilla, geddit?).
  3. Last Breaking Bad costume, we swear!: For retro appeal, one of you is Walter White in his grubby, baggy tighty-whities, and the other is a pregnant though emotionally underdeveloped Skylar.
  4. One of you is Justin Bieber in low-slung boxer-briefs, and the other is… Justin Bieber in low-slung boxer-briefs. You’re a selfie in action! Take the camera to bed with you, of course.
  5. If you plan to dress like Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke from the VMAs, we don’t want to know about it. Unless, of course, the guy in your couple dresses as Miley and the gal dresses like Robin (or you’re both gay). And most definitely bring that foam finger to bed later in the evening.
  6. Dress as a two-person humped camel, a la the Geico commercial. (We’re pretty sure you could get busy under there and no one would be the wiser. At the very least, some mutual diddling.)
  7. Dexter in black rubber protective gear + saran-wrapped victim = a fetish love affair just waiting to happen!
  8. Duck Dynasty Mr. & Mrs: It’s hardly the most original costume out there, but we’re pretty sure that Duck Dynasty-style sex is old-school down and dirty. You can leave your bandana on, as the song almost goes.
  9. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon from Behind the Candelabra: Go seventies, go tight white pants, go gaudy, go topless, go glitzy, go both ways and back again — and do it all for love, aw yeah.
  10. Close the shades and refuse to answer the door to any trick-or-treaters all night while you have hot monkey sex with your partner. Your costume? You’re a government shut-down!


Sex and Dating Acts That Should Have a 24 Hour Waiting Period

September 12, 2013


The Washington, D.C., Department of Health just posted proposed tattoo and body piercing regulations, and one of the recommendations is that a 24-hour waiting period be imposed for tattoos. In other words, if you stumble into a tattoo parlor one Saturday night and drunkenly demand a tattoo of Miley Cyrus twerking or a Chinese symbol tramp stamp, you’ll be told to sleep it off and come back the next day if you’re really sure.

Call us square, but we don’t think it’s the worst idea in the world. Here are ten other things we think would benefit from a 24-hour waiting period:

  1. Threeways.
  2. Ex sex.
  3. Matching couples’ tattoos.
  4. Sleeping with a co-worker.
  5. Anal play (so you can avoid refried beans, stock up on lube, shower, etc).
  6. Spouse-swapping.
  7. Infidelity. (Seriously, we once read a study showing that something like 99.9% of people who jump off a bridge — and live to tell about it — say they regret it right after they leap, and we have a feeling something similar might be said of infidelity: Give people 24 hours to think it over and who knows what good decisions may result?)
  8. Gossiping to all your friends about exactly what your partner did with the nipple clamps and/ or dog leash and bowl the previous night in bed.
  9. Oedipal- and/or Electra-style role-playing.
  10. Did we mention threeways?

17 Things We WISH Occurred Only Every 17 Years (Or Less)

May 28, 2013

The bizarre, unsettling cicada invasion got us thinking about all the other kinds of things that would be way easier to handle if they occurred only every 17 years…

  1. A D-list reality TV star’s sex tape is “accidentally” distributed.
  2. UTI’s.
  3. Someone says “I’ll call you” and never does.
  4. Reverse wheelbarrow sex.
  5. A douche-bag ex has the kind of earth-shaking sex that makes them feel like they just invented a whole new act.
  6. Ryan Lochte’s abs get network TV coverage.
  7. Periods.
  8. “Negging” a woman on the pick-up scene actually works.
  9. A woman fakes her orgasm with a man she loves.
  10. Crabs.
  11. Dry-humping on the dance floor.
  12. Divorce.
  13. Sex parties with a cold cuts buffet.
  14. Yeast infections.
  15. The condom breaks.
  16. Someone loses the key to the police-issue handcuffs.
  17. Heartbreak.



You’re More Attractive (to Twitter Users) If…

March 12, 2013

Sometimes the hash tags that trend on Twitter can make you hate humankind (#fatfilms¬†this week, really, people? Are we back in junior high? What’s next, awards for “Most Outgoing” Twitter feed?!)… and sometimes they just make you want to reach out and hug someone. And sometimes they do both, as with this week’s other trend: #YoureMoreAttractiveIf. The two most common attributes listed? Having a sense of humor and smelling good — which we guess are two qualities people particularly enjoy while taking long walks on the beach. Here are a few more, er,¬†specific qualities that the people of Twitterland find attractive…



1. Professor Snape ‚ÄŹ@_Snape_
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you know the difference between your and you’re.


2. The Office ‚ÄŹ@theofficenbc
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you like beets, bears, and Battlestar Galactica.


3. lexxie goff ‚ÄŹ@lexxiequinn
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you can pull off a beanie


4. Occupy Wall Street ‚ÄŹ@OccupyWallSt
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you realize that the sequester is an exercise to distract us from the pain of life under a world run by big business.


5. madelynn ‚ėÄ ‚ÄŹ@xoxox_madelynn
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you let me roll the blunt sometimes, and not be full of yourself, mine are just as good if not better


6. Jordan Kranda ‚ÄŹ@JordanKranda
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you’re a Christian, book nerd, mature, aren’t a flirt, lover Taco Bell, and have ambitious goals.#TotalPackage


7. Brunette Barbie‚ĄĘ ‚ÄŹ@_BrunetteBarbz
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you don’t ask me for nudes


8. J SUN ‚ÄŹ@JasonDonohoe93
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf you prefer staying in on the weekends and eating loads of junk food in bed with a DVD and cuddles


9. Planned Parenthood ‚ÄŹ@PPFAQ
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf You respect me, my body, and my choices.


10. James Urbaniak ‚ÄŹ@JamesUrbaniak
Misread the trending hashtag #YoureMoreAttractiveIf as#YourMoreAttractiveElf. Make that a thing.




Tom Tebow ‚ÄŹ@IamEvilTebow
#YoureMoreAttractiveIf … You blow me while I watch sports #Romance



Are You Smarter in Love Than an Eighth Grader?

January 29, 2013

1 Comment

We’re cynical biatches, so when someone told us about this eighth grade mash note that a teacher found on her classroom floor (see above), we figured there was a good chance it was faked in some way. But then we read it and we fell in love with the girl asking the question, “R u ready to be there when I’m mad, or need to cry.”

And then our inner feminist yelped like she’d been spanked and was all like, “WTF? Who says it’s a girl asking that question? How do you know it’s not a boy asking a girl, So chicken is more important than me?

Whoever she or he is, they are our new role model for communication between or among the sexes. If only all relationships could begin with written confirmation that, yes, you are the only thing I care about unless I’m hungry and there’s fried chicken. Not the girl who sits at the desk behind you or the boy whose mom drives you to school or the idiot on the cheerleading team or the meathead who plays football.

People, take inspiration from this. What the hell, why not just go retro and actually pass notes next time you’re at a bar with a new partner? They might find it endearing when you write, while dotting your i’s with heart shapes, “Have you ever had, or do you currently have, an STD?” and, “If I freak out about my cat dying and call you twice in one day, do you promise not to dump me because I’m too needy?”

Communication, people. It’s simple eighth-grade shit and it can save a broken heart.


Paul Ryan Gosling

August 16, 2012


A few years ago a humble little Tumblr blog called “Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling” launched, featuring images of the dreamy, blue-eyed, well-toned actor with imagined lovey-dovey quotes from him to you, the girlfriend: “Hey Girl, if I had to get swine flu, I’d want to get it from you.” It hasn’t been updated in months, but it doesn’t have to be: ¬†it spawned a thousand spin-off “hey girl” sites to keep you satisfied:¬†Feminist Ryan Gosling¬†(our favorite, and the one with a book deal),¬†Typographer Ryan Gosling,¬†Shakespearean Ryan Gosling, the list goes on and on…. (See “Know Your Meme” for a more complete history.)

A few months back, some young female fiscal conservatives¬†started a pro-Paul Ryan Tumblr blog called “Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan.” For example, “Hey girl, you know I can’t resist a tight little budget.” ¬†Eh.

Now, the evolution of the Hey Girl meme might have reached its pinnacle this week with the creation of Paul Ryan Gosling

Monday Mix: Muppet Dating Advice, Porn Dilemmas, and More

June 25, 2012


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… these are a few of our favorite things making the rounds on the Internets of late:

  • Muppet Dating Advice: An awesome article on Slate explains how everyone is either a Chaos Muppet (Cookie Monster, Ernie, Grover, Gonzo, Animal, Miss Piggy, etc.), or an Order Muppet (Burt, Scooter, Kermit, etc.). If you want a happy marriage, the theory goes, you need to pair up with the opposite type — just like Kermit and Miss Piggy, or Burt and Ernie. (And if you don’t? “That‚Äôs where Baby Elmos come from.”) You have been warned.
  • Stalking Terry Gross: Mike Birbiglia’s¬†short film for This American Life starring Terry Gross is hilarious and pitch-perfect. Though, damn, we were hoping he’d follow her into the bedroom.
  • A Couple Decides What Porn To Watch: How many times have you spent hours on the couch, arguing with your partner about what movie to watch on Netflix? (We suppose it’s one step up from the nineties, when those arguments took place in a Blockbuster store.) Now imagine trying to pick something a little raunchier… CollegeHumor demonstrates how¬†good relationships are all about compromise, honesty and access to PornHub.
  • 21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity: The photo of the Chicago christians who showed up to a gay pride parade to apologize for homophobia in the church made our week (and the pic of the tighty-whitey/Christian hug made our year).
  • A History of Ryan Gosling in Dance Moves: If you find Gosling’s acting even mildly annoying — that faux I’m-so-flat-affect-I’m-on-the-spectrum kind of thing — then you will get immense pleasure watching him in the video that surfaced this week of him¬†dancing wildly and enthusiastically, age ll. And if you are a drooling, obsessed Gosling fan, you will also get immense pleasure from the video.

How to Spot a Hipster in the Wild

May 17, 2012


photo via flickr

How is it possible that hipsters have been around since the 1940s? (At least according to the OED, which equates the word with “hepcat.” Er, thanks for that.) Even stranger still, how is it possible that hipsters have been around since the 1940s and we still can’t exactly put our finger on what one is? In recent years the hipster even became a subject for academic (or at least highbrow) debate, with the fancy-pants journal n+1 sponsoring an entire symposium called “What Was the Hipster?” which became a book by the same name. Unfortunately we suspect the folks at n+1 of being hipsters in denial, which is why we can’t bear to read their book on the topic. We’d rather get our hipster spotting tips from Vice magazine’s Do’s and Don’ts feature, which has proved again and again that hipsters are kind of like porn: you know one when you see one. Or then there’s the blog HipstersFuckingLove.com. It’s not exactly a reliable source of information given that it’s updated monthly at the most, but there are some gems in there. Here are some of our favorites (none of which should come as a surprise to anyone who’s browsed the hipster dating profiles on sites like Nerve.com and OKCupid):

  • Hipsters fucking love feminist porn.
  • Hipsters fucking love board games.
  • Hipsters fucking love cupcakes.
  • Hipsters fucking love grammar.
  • Hipsters fucking love TED talks.
  • Hipsters fucking love mix cds.
