Conventional wisdom dictates that men are so sexual that they can't possibly be faithful, and the stereotypical gay man has sex with bathhouses full of dudes every night. So what could we possibly learn from gay men about monogamy?
Breaking Dawn turns out to be as cold as a vampire’s skin. It lacks all the intensity and passion that made so many fans flock to this series the first time around. The only real emotion evident in Breaking Dawn is the deep love Meyer holds for all of her characters. She wants to ensure a happy ending for everyone of them, even if that means breaking all the rules to get them there.
We're proper ladies here at Love Buzz, which is why we're not going to reprint the salty language kickass comedian Margaret Cho used in her blog post directed towards anti-gay Christians, "I'm a Christian, you f***ers." But if you're curious, click through and absorb the righteousness on your own. Cho's always been vocal about her refusal to be labeled "gay" or "straight" and whichever Christians are giving her trouble over comments she made about Gov. Sarah Palin touched a big ol' nerve. Cho is aaaaaaang-ry and has every right to be. Some PG parts of her post:
I finally watched the CW's new 90210 last night, and it was better than I thought it would be. I saw the fourth episode, "The Bubble" (you can watch the full first and second eps on the CW website).The relationships on the show are for the most part pretty predictable. There's a love quadrangle between four high schoolers who are dating each other's ex's. (Which begs the question: are friends ex-boyfriends off limits? And can you be friends with your ex?) Then there are the old-schoolers, Kelly Taylor and Brenda Walsh. Kelly is teaching at West Beverly high and has a baby; check out the clip above to find out who the father is. Brenda Walsh is back in town too, but, at least in this episode, doesn’t have a romantic storyline.
Amid all the bluster about "foreign policy experience" and "abstinence-only education," there's been one meme missing. Thankfully, the UK's Daily Mail picks up the slack by asking: Would your guy bone Sarah Palin? Even if your feminist bone is the size of your pinky finger, it's hard not to be offended by such sexist drivel as this:
Just as the premise of this story elicits a double take, apparently perceiving "cold" behavior in others can cause one to actually feel cold. Psychologists at the University of Toronto revealed their findings based on two experiments. The first involved dividing 65 students into two groups. Researchers asked one group to recall an instance of social acceptance, and the other was asked to recall an instance of social rejection. Then, the subjects were asked to guess the temperature of the lab room. Those who had recalled a memory involving social rejection estimated the temp was an average 5 degrees lower than the group recalling social acceptance!
Nerve has thoughtfully put together a list of the 50 Buzziest Blog Posts Of All Time. Below are our favorites; go here for the full list. 38. STD All Stars. A chick contracted herpes from a one-night stand and she was so pissed that she created a blog about it, and posted pictures of the dude all over Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Getting the herp sure does suck, but it's not like her life is over. People with herpes can still find love! The original blog doesn't exist anymore, but Nerve links to a bunch of posts about the kerfuffle.
Travel & Leisure recently released its "America's Favorite Cities" feature that ranks 25 cities on categories such as food/dining, shopping, people and culture. For the "people" rankings, the citizens are judged on six subcategories: attractive, friendly, intelligent, athletic/active, diverse and stylish. Now, call me crazy, but when I go on vacation, the first thing I evaluate when choosing a destination is the athleticism of the people. Not at all. But, that's besides the point here. I suppose the accumulated attractiveness of a potential vacation spot population could be helpful to, say, ensure anyone you catch in the background of a photo isn't hideously unattractive. Also for the likes of good people-watching or vacay flings.
Online dating threw me an unexpected curveball: my career. As a professional writer, I gave men an easy topic to make conversation about in their initial flirtacious emails: "Where do you work? What do you write about?" The problem is, these men already knew my first name was Jessica; I knew that as soon as I gave them any other clue about my work, they'd be off and Googling. That's certainly what I did to a fellow JDating journalist who worked at a major entertainment magazine told me he once interviewed Blake Lively: it took three seconds to figure out his real identity.
Today the Daily Bedpost turns us on to The Great Big Chart of Fetishes, a color-coded flow-chart of sorts, listing and linking various sexual proclivities to one another. (The chart is photo-free and safe for work, unless you've got an eagle-eyed boss, or a screen that projects onto a wall—hey, it happens.)
