Since its earliest models dating all the way back to 1880’s the history of the vibrator is one steeped in controversial issues and uncomfortable conversations. Where women were shunned for wanting to embrace their female sexuality and freely talking about sex is frowned upon. The American public is beginning to usher in a new age of sexual liberation even greater than that of the sixties. Read More
If you’re livin’ in LA, I would recommend clearing your schedule on May 7th. Some of our favorite gals, The Living Sisters and Zooey Deschanel, will be covering the songs of another personal favorite, Patsy Cline! Does it get any better than that? Didn’t think so. In celebration of country western music’s most distinctive voice, these contemporary songbirds will pay tribute to Patsy’s “I Fall To Pieces” and “Crazy” among others. Read More
Brooklyn-based trio Vivian Girls’ music just feels so, well, Brooklyn—a little gritty, rough around the edges, with lots of heart, and lots going on. I love Brooklyn. So much, in fact, that I live there atop the largest oil spill in U.S. history. No, I don't drink the water. Anyway, when I saw the trio of Cassie Ramone, Katy Goodman, and Fiona Campbell (new drummer!) play at New York City’s Webster Hall recently, it was evident that the ladies don't seem to care much about projecting a slick image. It's refreshing actually. No lace, striped tights, or leather. Read More

MNDR "Cut Me Out"

BY Eileen Milman in Music

Ladies, Don’t let these new ladies' underwear sets, licensed by Marvel, fool you, real super powers are all in your head. Although, the idea is a totally sweet one, I find the execution of these sets completely ridiculous and uncomfortably sexist. Airbrushed cleavage “bursting” at the seams and tiny infant sized waistlines are sending the wrong message to the self-conscious, comic-book-reading,14-year-old girl in all of us. If you want to be a real she-hulk use your brainy super powers and pick up something by Bell Hooks. Read More

Bang Bang

BY Eileen Milman in General

When I was growing up, I would make my best friends play Polly Pocket with me. I remember it like it was yesterday: a few poor boys and I crowded around Polly Pocket's Magical Mansion, making Polly flip hamburgers on her tiny grill, or perhaps sashay her around a mini lavender ballroom adorned with clear plastic swans and mauve curtains.
