“Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building, or a work of art, is not just superficial or something pretty to see,” Donald Trump (or rather, Meredith McIver) wrote in the 2007 how-to Trump 101: The Way to Success. “Beauty and elegance are products of personal style that come from deep within. No matter how…
In a profile for Vanity Fair’s August 2016 cover, writer Rich Cohen struggled to separate actress Margot Robbie from her existence as a sexual being, as many male writers have felt inclined to do about women forever. The feature on its own, which takes an odd tone and is not particularly well-written, was enough to…
If you’re the sort of heterosexual woman who can’t help comparing your body to the bodies of other women, look to men for the answer. Well, not to them—at them.
Would you let your daughter wear leggings out? I wouldn’t, but that’s because I don’t let my daughter leave her coat closet.
Earlier this week, the “period-proof” panties company Thinx and New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority seemed to be at odds over the use of the word “period” in some new subway ads. Now the MTA has retreated a bit—the flailing corporation just takes forever to make decisions.
New York City has rules for their subway ads, which can’t look too racy. And a set of new ads by Thinx, a company peddling knickers for women who’d like the option of forgoing pads and tampons during menstruation, have proven to be just too much for NYC’s (inconsistently) prim sensibilities.
The American media has been quick to embrace Caitlyn Jenner—and, as Jon Stewart pointed out on last night’s episode of The Daily Show, to suffocate her with the male gaze. Welcome, girl!
Pharrell is back with his usual "I just want to help all women celebrate their beauty by only featuring hot 'GIRLs'" antics with his new video for "Come And Get It Bae." This time with a hint of Miley Cyrus.
Greetings, Tom Hardy fans. Tom Hardy has something he wants to show you.
I've been watching music videos practically since their birth, or at least their MTV incarnation. They are one of the more absurd art forms around, a roughly three-minute "film" about something that may or may not have anything at all to do with the song, a medium that was once a crucial driver in album/singles sales,…
There's a fascinating post over at Collectors Weekly about the first "hunk," Eugen Sandow, and the history of objectifying muscular male bodies. In 1894, when Sandow became famous, it wasn't for actually lifting things, strongman style. It was for just posing and looking fine.
Self-described feminist "daddyblogger" Andy Hinds sees women everywhere (How bizarre!) — at the gym, at the market, even on the street — and can't help but mentally defile these tempting petals of purity by thinking about sleeping with them. His solution is to "cloak them in imaginary burqas."
If you've seen a movie, you've seen tits. You've seen asses like crazy, too, and, obviously, loads and loads of torsos. But overwhelmingly, you've seen tits. You've seen them so much you probably hardly even think about them anymore, and who needs to? They've been exhaustively documented and considered.
Have you barfed yet today? Get thee to a drain of some kind before watching this video the pervs over at NBC have put together in order to show their appreciation for Olympic bodies of the 2012 London Games. Unfortunately, to NBC, showcasing the "Bodies in Motion" of the XXX Olympiad means taking footage of…
I've never held a particularly strident stance on the issue of men staring at women in public—sometimes it's fine, mostly it's creepy, and the difference hinges on a jillion subjective subtleties. Some women like it, plenty of women do it to men (irrelevant! Power differential!), and anyway, if we make having eyeballs…
Far be it for us to back off from any titillation, but we have to admit we were a little disappointed after watching this ad that was deemed too sexy for Italian TV.
