Nightclub photographer Kirill posts pics of women… see above.
Obviously, if it’s your daughter in a champagne vs. real facial, you’re going to hope it’s 11% ABV not .5 BAL. The point here isn’t which is “worse” but their erotic significance.
“They aren’t explicit. It leaves something to the imagination.” But what, exactly? Her. … Read the rest
Is Lisbeth Salander a feminist heroine? According to the Internet, the answer depends on the medium in which her story plays out.
In her original form, as a character in the novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, the answer readers gave is unequivocally yes. Lisbeth finds herself in a world where every man is an… Read the rest
Laura Hudson at Comics Alliance has written a very thoughtful and personal indictment of the way DC Comics depicts female superheroes. She holds one one particularly egregious example (shown below) to “explain why these scenes don’t support sexually liberated women; they undermine them.”
Her conclusions is one that I would agree with, and that many others… Read the rest
According to columnist “Chuck Norris” of Townhall.com :
MTV’s reality shows “Jersey Shore” and “16 and Pregnant” are only the beginnings of a television tidal wave of explicitly sexual content that is invading the hearts and minds of America’s youth.
While the word “invasion” captures the ubiquity of sex in the media, it actually does a disservice to… Read the rest
You’ll have to forgive me, I have no idea how to make this link all embedded and sexy and turn you on and make you come. Instead, self-deprecating editorializing! – LET’S GO.
Watching Question Time* recently, with Germaine Greer terrifying audiences with a post-Freudian Freudianism and Peter Hitchens admirably sticking to a party-line of reductive (yet profitable) nonsense, I… Read the rest
Given the content of this post, it’s probably best to disclaim that I alone am responsible for the opinions expressed here.
A police officer got into some trouble for saying that, well, I’ll just quote from the article.
An international series of protests known as SlutWalks, sparked by a Toronto police officer’s flippant comment that women should avoid

“JUDASVIDEO PREMIERE 5.5.11 on E! 7/6c + 11:30/10c. Motorcycle Fellini PopArt FantasyFilm + Haus Directorial Debut. ” – @ladygaga
When you read something that namechecks Fellini, you expect Fellini. Lady Gaga’s new video “Judas” is weak suace even for her. It’s Gaga without the weird costumes, without the nulled-gender, and without the weirdness. In other words it’s Madonna,… Read the rest
This song and video plays very delicately with gender and sexuality. If you’ve ever read Robert Greene’s The Art of Seduction, you’ll recognize the seductive archetype of the dandy, one of the more interesting and powerful ones. A woman who dresses in a masculine fashion, who commands and leads, yet still retains her femininity. More common is the converse,… Read the rest
A wonderful bit of research on hooking up is making the internet rounds today. It is from a Psychology Today blog written by John Buri, a psychology professor and author of the book How to Love Your Wife. It’s a really powerful, important book: research has shown that 78% of men who purchase the book self-report higher levels… Read the rest
We don’t know what it is about “Smells like teen spirit” and “Come as you are” that get Nirvana fans going, but apparently, in one recent poll, they’re the ones most likely to have sex on a first date, while

‘Bout time I did Britney.
Look at Britney. Older, wiser. But still totally bangin’. She didn’t write this song. But that’s, actually, just another part of the construction. They practically trumpet from the rooftops the team that wrote it, including Kesha, the consummate party animal. The idea being that Britney might otherwise have never come up with something like… Read the rest
Today we’re looking at Ke$ha.
Typically, pop songs are well-crafted, well-sung. This one isn’t. Why? It’s all part of the message and the image. Kesha deliberately understates her looks, dresses down, and doesn’t bother auto-tuning the trailer park out of her voice.
But it’s still huge. There’s a reason it’s used in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid commercial,… Read the rest
In a as yet unpublished study in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 80% of male monkeys tested were able to tell which female was ovulating by picture alone.
They presented male monkeys with two pictures of the same female’s face: one from a day on which she was ovulating, and one from a time before she was

I thought I’d have to listen to a lot of Lady Gaga to find something worthy of a piece. I was pleasantly surprised. Today we’re listening to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way.
To understand this video, you have to understand two things. First her core audience (for this video) of 12-18 year old girls. If you can’t put yourself… Read the rest
The New Yorker profiles Christian Louboutin but not the shoe.
So what’s the story with the red sole? In 1993 he had designed a pink shoe with a black sole, thought something was missing. He took the nail polish away from his assistant and painted the sole.
Does the red sole change our relationship to the shoe? What… Read the rest
This song is ancient by pop music standards. But it’s still one of the best illustrations of the club singles scene I’ve ever seen.
Let’s start with the title of the song. “Promiscuous.” That’s a big word. It’s repeated several times throughout the chorus and keeps reminding you; these aren’t normal people we’re dealing with. These are promiscuous people.… Read the rest
This is a new Tide detergent commercial showing how Tide undermines Dad’s attempt to control his daughter’s sexuality. Dad is a central character in the ad, and all the action revolves around him. But the ad is not targeted at fathers. Women still do most of the family shopping, so we should read the ad as addressing moms.… Read the rest
Normally cycling participants earned about US$335 per 5-h shift during estrus, US$260 per shift during the luteal phase, and US$185 per shift during menstruation. By contrast, participants using contraceptive pills showed no estrous earnings peak… These results have clear implications for human evolution, sexuality, and economics.
No they don’t.

An op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Why Do We Let Them Dress Like That?”, manages to reassert every outdated and dangerous notion of sex that died with the petticoat and the advent of coed colleges.
On its surface, the article addresses the ambivalence of the “liberated generation” towards the sexual attitudes of its children. But this ambivalence… Read the rest
A Yale fraternity has its pledges march around chanting, “no means yes! yes means anal!” A USC fraternity sends out an email explaining how to be Tucker Max, except for the ability to write three books and make a movie. Nothing much out of the ordinary for frats, except that it went public.
Two things to… Read the rest
