Mindy Kaling sat down for Marissa A. Ross's "Wine Time" series to take a crack at wine-tasting. The two, dressed like Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church from Sideways because duh, indulged in a Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection (which sounds more like a Godfather-themed crystal figurine set at Kay Jewelers)… » 3/19/14 10:40am 3/19/14 10:40am

Study: Men Don't Suddenly Become Sexually Aggressive When Drunk

A new (and extraordinarily unsurprising) study finds that imbibing alcohol doesn't have a Jekyll & Hyde-like effect upon otherwise mild-mannered and polite men, who in the throes of Dionysian mania "lose their inhibitions" and commit sexual assault.

Alright everyone, say it with me, because it's time to play my favorite game here at Jezebel: "A study has found!"

Dress As Slutty As You Want This Halloween, Just Don't Act Like A Dick

Much has been made of Halloween's gradual transformation from a holiday that exists as a way to commemorate our ancient superstitions about ghosts into a holiday that exists as a way to get hepatitis from a sexy nurse costume that came in a clear plastic bag and cost $65. But quibbling over whether it's okay to go… » 10/29/13 5:30pm 10/29/13 5:30pm

Reminder: Getting Drunk Doesn't Cause Rape to Magically Appear

In recent weeks, much virtual ink has been spilled debating the role of alcohol in on campus sexual assaults. Should women stop drinking, because many rapes are committed against intoxicated women?
