Top 15 Kinky Celebrities

Of course celebrities like to get kinky — why would they do it vanilla style when they can don an outfit, get into character, and make a scene? And in the bedroom, there’s always an appreciative audience, (and, one would hope, no bad reviews). When you think about it, it’s just surprising more of them […]

Rosemary’s Baby Could Have Been Made in 2012, 2016…

You hear a lot these days about Republicans rolling back women’s rights all the way to the ’50s and ’60s: vowing to defund Planned Parenthood; to allow employers to decide whether or not their female employees can have their contraception covered; to put the rights of an embryo above those of a woman via the […]

Olivia Wilde’s Vaginalogue

photo via flickr Olivia Wilde is one of those actresses we are completely familiar with (thanks Us Weekly!) without having a clue about her career. We’re assuming she plays exotic queens in far off lands from long, long ago whose beauty knights kill for? And apparently she was in some TV show? Suffice it to […]

Top 10 Pop-Culture Gender-Benders

We’re not going to focus on the negative portrayals of transsexuality, like in PSYCHO and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and last year’s thankfully cancelled WORK IT television sitcom. And we’re not focusing on the history of transitioning stories that takes us all the way back to the 1930s when an intersexed, Bohemia-born Zdenka Koubkova went from female running/jumping champion to male […]

Bar Refaeli Wants to Kickstart Her Sex Tape

Sure, you could send ten bucks to your neighbor who wants to make a business out of her macrame bondage gear… or you could just fund “aspiring model and actress” Bar Refaeli’s sex tape. Remember the nineties, when a sex tape was a good way to launch a career? These days it’s all about making […]

Playing Ukelele Can Save the World

Last week we saw Amanda Palmer perform live (and totally drunk-Tweeted her afterward, oops) — but right before the show, we saw her hubby, author Neil Gaiman, read a new, unpublished short story.

Top 10 Sauciest Jokes from Phyllis Diller, RIP

photo by Allan Warren via WikiCommons It’s been a bad week for successful creative types.

Top 10 American Sex Scandals

Sex scandals are as American as (sticking your wiener in an) apple pie. (Or should we say your Anthony Weiner?) The really unforgettable scandals leave us with a particular phrase or image burned into our brains. We could be a hundred years old and senile and we will still be able to recall Lorena Bobbitt […]

Top 10 Movie Couples We Want to Double-Date

Double-dating is at least as hard as plain old dating. First of all, there’s two of them and two of you, which means there are four potential relationships to negotiate — you’re trying to find a couple with whom you have four-way chemistry. That’s Nobel-level stuff happening there. And then there’s the lack of sex […]

Great Music to Have Sex To: Patrick Watson

Not frantic rip-off-each-others’-clothes sessions, but more deliberate, sensual interludes that last longer than an hour, the kind earnest teenagers in love engage in. Patrick Watson, the Montreal-based band (fronted by singer-songwriter […]

Top 10 Summer Movies to See (a Guess)

Spider-who? Bat-who? Bourne-who? Forget the summer action blockbusters. This season we’re much more interested in the softer, sassier, saucier flicks. Instead of aliens, action and adventure, sex, love, family and friendship are the big themes with these movies. Women make up a majority of the lead roles (for a change). Most are indie. And for […]
