  • Janet Jackson Sexy Fur Designs Could Even Convert Animal Activists

    janet jacksonjanet jacksonI've gotta hand it to Janet Jackson. The woman has balls. Currently, the pop star is featured in a sexy new campaign -- for fur. And she's not just starring in the ads, she's actually teamed up with the company Blackglama to launch the line. A celebrity promoting -- and designing -- fur coats? Bold.

    Now, as an animal lover -- and a relatively poor person -- I'm against wearing fur. I'm not one of those PETA crazies, but I do find the practice of skinning an innocent animal for the sake of fashion cruel. But I've gotta admit, Janet does make fur look pretty tempting ...

    First of all, it's Janet. The incredibly beautiful, incredibly cool Miss Jackson if you're nasty. The way she's posing in the mink is a far cry from the old school, stuffy, stodgy, Cruella De Vil-esque association we're used to having with fur. She's actually making it look kind of bad ass. I mean, check her out. She's just like, "Yeah, I'm

  • There's Nothing Wrong with Ditching a Bad Date

    check pleasecheck pleaseMorning radio, it seems as a rule, is really bad, which is just one reason I'm thrilled I don't have to be subjected to it during an a.m. commute these days. But when I went on a couple of errands today, I tuned in while the DJs were talking about ditching a bad date. As in, actually getting up in the middle of drinks, dinner, movies, or bowling, making some BS excuse (like "I have to take a phone call real quick" or "Just going to the ladies' room!") and then ... booking it. The conversation totally hit a nerve for me, because it's something I really wish I had been ballsy enough to do several years ago.

    You see, I had made a conscious decision to find Mr. Right, so I pretty much devoted myself to a full-time second job, in which my sole responsibility was to date like crazy. (Which meant I was subject to meeting LOADS of crazies!)

  • The Surprising Thing Your Man REALLY Thinks About Your Body

    Being married can often be difficult. Keeping the flame alive 5, 10, and 15 years into a relationship, especially as we age and children get lumped in the mix, can be incredibly challenging. But it's also so very, very worth it. As Cee-Lo Green promises in his latest song, your husband "still loves you anyway."

    In a good marriage, he loves you despite your "wobbly bits." It's those very parts you find disgusting -- your juicy thighs or droopy breasts -- that he finds most appealing. The Daily Mail did an article on this and the results were surprising and deeply endearing.

    One man said about his wife:

    I know Karen is not particularly happy with her B-cup breasts, but there's nothing wrong with them. Yes, they've dropped a bit because she's had kids, but so what? I wouldn't want them any bigger or smaller - they're just right.

    We all are, really. We are all "just right." Mostly, though, we

    It must've seemed so logical when the idea first started to, eh-hem, take shape. When your rear tire loses its roundness, you pull out your handy dandy Fix-a-Flat to plump it back up, right? So why wouldn't that same miracle-in-a-can work just as effectively on a flat rear end?

    Throw in a little cement, a little super glue, a little mineral oil, and badabing. Baby got back… and at a discount price.

    First, the Wet Brine. This is where you soak your turkey in a bath of salt water. Glancing over at master chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's recipe in this week's Goop, you'll need 2 gallons of water, 4 cups of kosher salt, and 3/4 cup sugar for a 12-pound turkey. Dissolve the sugar and salt in

  • Bacon-Flavored Lube Promises to Add 'Sizzle' to Your Sex Life

    bacon-flavored lubebacon-flavored lubeReally ... I'm not sure what's wrong with some people. But there are actually individuals out there who love bacon so much that they petitioned, begged, and pleaded for J & D's, the purveyors of bacon-flavored salt and bacon-flavored lip balm, to come out with bacon-flavored ... lubricant. Eww. Eww. Ewwww. Yeah, the idea originated from an April Fools' blog post that was a tongue-in-cheek, satirical JOKE. But when some pork lovahs out there caught wind of the concept, they actually made a case for J & D's to produce the stuff.

  • The Secret to Having the Most Magical Kind of Orgasm

    woman holding towelwoman holding towelIt seems like women have a lot going on in their pubic area. While it may sound confusing and seem overwhelming, it's not. In fact, most of it is pretty amazing. Especially if you know the right areas. It's time to tell you all about the blended orgasm.

    Trust me, you should take notes.

    So what's this about a blended orgasm, you ask? It's an orgasm that mixes both of those delicious erotic spots into a single delightful climax.

    More from The Stir: 5 Ways to a More Satisfying Orgasm

    Great, now how do you do that?

    Women generally have two zones that cause orgasm: the c-spot and the g-spot (sounds like too many spots, I know, but pay attention). Most women achieve orgasm through the c -- or clitoral -- spot, which is the most accessible of the two.

    To have a blended orgasm, first you have to find your g-spot. Your c-spot (your clitoris) you should be well and truly familiar with. The g-spot, though, is kinda tricky to find, so bear with me.

  • 5 Inanimate Objects so Sexy I Would Totally Marry Them

    Have you ever looked at a laundry basket and felt a familiar stirring in your groin? Has a coat tree ever caught your eye and stared back coyly, its multiple arms and wooden pegs reaching out like an invitation for love? No? Well, me neither. Seriously. But we may be in the minority.

    The Frisky just had an article on the inanimate objects people love, and the results will scare you. One man got his penis caught in a drain pipe (yes, seriously). Another woman can't get off unless she has her beloved laundry basket. And yet another loves a vacuum cleaner.

    Someday this will be meSomeday this will be me
    Guess what I'm doing this Thanksgiving weekend? Cooking. And eating. And eating. And EA-TING. But also working out! Don't laugh -- I swear, I am! This year I am stepping up my nearly non-existent workout routine between Thanksgiving and New Year's. This sounds totally counter-intuitive, I know. It's like I'm living in Opposite Land. I'm in a parallel universe where people get skinny eating gingerbread houses, right?

    But it makes sense to me because I'm totally unrealistic and insane new to strength training and am excited about going to the gym. What's motivating me? The totally bizarre discovery that I can wake up early, work out for an hour or so, and feel totally alert the whole day. WEIRD! For a flabby non-exerciser, that's amazing. I will probably never feel this way about working out again! I must work out NOW before I start hating it! Which will surely happen someday, soon! So
