T-shirts ... but we're a little worried that some women are taking the personal landscaping a little too far. Here, five crazy beauty rituals that we women perform below the belt.
There are plenty of good reasons to have a man in your life. Sex. Opening pesky pickle jars. Um, sex. But let's not forget the added bonus of nipping into your guy's dresser drawers and claiming the loot inside for yourself. Here, 7 dude duds to "borrow" for your fall wardrobe.
I once dated a guy who clothed himself almost exclusively in band t-shirts, pleated trousers, and an ever-present fanny pack. (And no, he wasn't a German tourist.) I remember thinking when we met that I'd finally cast eyes upon the archetypal rock critic. That he actually was a rock critic made the experience all the richer. Because he was smart, funny and cute-ish, I chose to overlook his sartorial missteps and we quickly fell in love. But despite my best efforts—including renaming the fanny pack his "colostomy bag"—I never could convince him to spiff up.
Sexiness is not about your dress size. It has nothing to do with your zip code, either. And don't even tilt your head a tad at your hair color, length of bangs or shoes in the mirror. Nope.

So brush away any dust that's settled on your sensual side with these, our favorite three tips from Gottlieb and her West Coast pals. Isn't it time you get back in touch with the fox in you?

When I go running I put my iPod in my sports bra—it just makes sense! I don't like to have something attached to my arm and carrying it in my hand messes with my stride; sticking a nano in my cleavage is easy! I'm shocked that more women don't do it. I admit, though, that I sometimes worry that my gym crush might wonder why I have wires coming out of my cleavage, and why I occasionally reach into my shirt and appear to be adjusting my boobs—I'm just skipping a song, I swear! So I'm not sure I'm into the idea of storing not just my iPod, but the entire contents of my purse, inside my bra. That's the concept behind the Cleavage Caddy (via Lemondrop), the signature product of Mazantri Creations, a company that's embraced the bra as storage. The idea of stashing a couple of bills and an ID in your bra isn't new, but the Caddy isn't just for cards and cash—there are compartments for a cellphone, pen, lip gloss—the works.

If I had a magic wand, it would be one of the first things I'd change (after getting rid of world hunger and professional wrestling.) But I'm not waiting around for fairy dust any longer. This has been on my mind for a very specific reason. I have chosen to write about my life and when I'm asked to speak publicly about that writing people are often surprised when they see what has been described as my "conservative look." It's disappointing, quite frankly. People in open relationships don't all look the same.
