Oh Lordy. Sex at work just got interesting! Here's the story: two ad agency art directors were having sex in their Manhattan office one Friday afternoon a few weeks ago. A co-worker noticed, alerted his buddy from IT and the two peepers recorded the 20-minute session with their phones. The buddy then uploaded a 60-second video to his computer, sent it to some officemates and lo, a week later the clip ended up on Gawker.
Recycled sex, Essex girls do it without condoms, some dudes don't like oral, a mother's weight gain translates to bigger babies, both presidential candidates aren't down with gay marriage, Mad Men teaches people how to date like a man, an Indian man wants an annulment on grounds of his wife's acne, Suze Orman wants you to have separate accounts, and wedding gowns for women in the military.
Last night I watched the season one episode of Mad Men where Roger Sterling suffers a heart attack while diddling 20-year-old identical twins and I thought, Ha, ha, Hollywood sure is funny! This morning I wake up and read in the New York Post that Matthew McConaughey's father bit the dust just after doing the nasty.
"What you call love was invented by guys like me, to sell nylons,"Ad Man Don Draper says in the first season of Mad Men. But which actually came first: the slogan or the sentiment? All bets are off when it comes to the chicken or the egg, but we do know that advertisers play a huge role in crafting and grossly inflating our romantic expectations. Tango sets the record straight on eight slogans that lie about love before ad men set us all up for disappointment.
If you weren't in the workforce 46 years ago you might find the Emmy-nominated drama "Mad Men" to be a bit of a shock. Sexist pigs dominate the management at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency, where submissive secretaries are all too willing to accept a sexual advances from their superiors. Infidelity, child-bearing out of wedlock, and of course, drinking on the job are just a few of the sins viewers will be sure to encounter this season. Here, "Mad Men" stars reports on what's changed in the past four decades.
Elisabeth Moss, best known for playing presidential daughter Zoey Bartlet on the "West Wing," portrays young and sexy secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson on AMC's "Mad Men." Since the show's first season, Peggy has changed significantly, especially in relating to the opposite sex. As the only woman on the creative staff, Peggy struggles to get into the boys' club. Here, the star discusses her character's journey and on-screen style. Although love and romance are the last things her character is looking for, Moss dishes on her own off-show dating life.
On the surface, Joan Holloway is a secretarial stereotype: the super-sexy, head-turning queen bee of the office, the one who's having a hot affair with her married boss. But as played by Christina Hendricks, Joan is so much more, and one of the many delights of "Mad Men," in its second season on AMC. "She's so fun because she's so different from anything I've ever played before, and the furthest from me," says Hendricks, whose resumé includes regular roles on "Kevin Hill" and "Beggars and Choosers" and guest spots on "Las Vegas," "Without a Trace," "Cold Case," "ER" and "Firefly." Hendricks loves that her character is self-confident and not a victim, while playful, sexual and confident. The sexy actress herself tells about her real-life romance with her live-in boyfriend Geoffrey Arend, and dealing with crushes at work.
