Love and logical organization are not incompatible.
Jezebel posted an article about a man they deemed "creepy" for organizing his Match.com dates into a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is detailed, tracking dates, emails and first impressions. However, I don't think it's fair to call this extremely well-organized guy "creepy" or any of the other names that commenters have labeled him.
I don't know that a formal survey's been done, but I think it's safe to say that in the eyes of most straight men in America, turbans on a women's head aren't hot. Neither are ostrich-feather miniskirts, utility pants, or capes. To many guys, tight, form-fitting, and revealing fashions constitute "sexy." And isn't that what fashion is supposed to be all about? Getting us to look at one woman rather than another?
"Language Of Ladies" class is short-lived, possibly offensive.
A class at Vassar College entitled "The Language Of Ladies" failed to make it to it's second lecture. Word on the street is that the course was deemed offensive by some and discontinued. Student-lecturer Daniel Abramson has to be somewhat disappointed. It looks like dudes will have to find some other way to learn talking to women and the sweet art of seduction.
In the shower! In a hot tub! With a vibrator! During a sex dream!
Masturbation: ladies are doing it! Jezebel blogged about a UK study of 1,000 women ages 18 to 30 which found a whopping 92% masturbate!
Two-thirds of women in the Gossard Big M survey touched themselves three times a week and women living in London self-pleasured four times a week.
According to past surveys, 74% masturbated in 1974 and 62% did in 1953. (1953? Really?)
Of course, the study took place across the pond, so we can't be totally sure women here are just as frisky. We'd guess that with the shame surrounding the female body and female pleasure, less American women masturbate.
A recent Jezebel post about "One Ball Wonders" like Lance Armstrong and Tom Green made me remember a story:
About two years ago, when I was working as a factchecker at Radar magazine, one of my oldest friends from back home IMed me to share some terrible news.
He had cancer, testicular cancer, and he was going to have surgery to take one of his testicles out.
In the weeks that followed, I tried to be as supportive as I could. My friend volleyed back and forth from not wanting to talk about it at all, to asking me if I still thought women would still want to hook up with him if he only had one testicle. Honestly, I discovered it's difficult to find the right words to say in this situation. Of course, since he's one of my oldest friends, I wanted to be totally honest: any woman worth his time wouldn't give a shit, but some women might find only one ball, and the very fact he was a cancer survivor, off-putting. Nevertheless, I'm sure I pointed out that Lance Armstrong still seem to score with women.
Jennifer Aniston May Have called Angelina "very uncool" in Vogue.
Team Jolie and Team Aniston are at it again, huh? According a rumor, Jennifer Aniston said what Angelina Jolie did was "very uncool" in the forthcoming issue of Vogue. We can only imagine that it had something to do with Brad Pitt. Though Angelina Jolie may have written a harsh criticism of a John Mayer album in Blender. This beef needs to be quashed lest someone get shot leaving Hot 97.
Expectant mothers have enough to worry about before giving birth: prenatal vitamins, home vs. hospital delivery, whether to become a stay-at-home mom or go back to work. Teen mothers have their own set of additional concerns, and now, it seems, so do mothers giving birth via Caesarean section.
Via Jezebel: a recent Yale University study found that mothers who gave birth naturally have higher levels of brain activity in areas that signal motivation and emotion than those who underwent a C-section.
Your period: do you hide it from your boy or not? Jezebel asks the tough questions:
...there's one final frontier of unpleasantness that means you're really close: changing your pads and tampons in front of your boyfriend. (I say "boyfriend," because I'm assuming this isn't as much of an issue in lesbian relationships.) Some guys are apparently squeamish about this sort of thing, probably the same ones who are weird about period sex. But can you really have a lasting relationship with someone if you have to hide bloody cotton from them?
This guy literally gets in touch with his feminine side.
"This is harder than boxing. This is the hardest thing I've ever done," says Gavin McInnes while huffing his way around a running track wearing a pair of (adorable) white high heels.
This video, part of Jezebel's "What It Feels Like For A Girl" series, is the latter half of two parts which follow the co-founder of Vice Magazine and Street Carnage through his 4-lap, one-mile journey full of saucy catcalls and excruciating pain.
