I have to admit, it's a little difficult to write a review about someone I have admired and followed since I first got into stand-up comedy. I still remember the first time I saw comedian Sarah Silverman perform live back home at a show in Manchester, New Hampshire, and I knew all her jokes and delivery by heart so well I could say them along with her. I recently watched Silverman’s HBO special We are Miracles (released November 2013) before getting to listen to the album version, which just came out September 23 in the US on Sub Pop. Read More
Since 1982, the dedicated people in the literary community have brought awareness to the glorious books that parents and administrators tried to hide from curious youth. Banned Books week is not just about embracing  those elementary school posters of authors and celebrities telling you to “READ” but also about fighting censorship, for the sake of diverse and vital literary content.

  I like to think of Mary Roach as Queen of All Things Awkward.  Her publications include Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, in which she addressed practicing cosmetic surgery on cadavers, crucifixion experiments and human head transplant.  She also wrote the book Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal, whose chapters included “Big Gulp: How to survive being swallowed alive” and “Stuffed: The science of eating yourself to death.

Lana Del Rey has opened up about a particular song from her album Ultraviolece. "Fucked My Way Up to the Top" is the 9th track on the most recent album, and the song hinges on the narrator’s pursuit of stardom and using sex to achieve it. Read More
According to BuzzFeed, a woman posted on the /r/relationships subreddit with some concerning news about her marriage. While on her way to the airport for a business trip, the woman's husband emailed her a spreadsheet that detailed their sexual activity since early June. For the past month and a half, the husband was recording the response his wife would give when he asked for sex; if she responded with a no, he would provide what the excuse was for her no. Read More
I have a confession, everyone! I’ve joined the online dating community and so far, it’s been a mothereffing rollercoaster. Before I begin, if any of the guys have Googled me and found this, for the sake of our potential future: stop reading now. Kidding (not really, though). So, I joined a popular, free website a couple months ago because I was sick of meeting no one interesting and liked the idea of window shopping for men in the comfort of my home. Read More
Imagine being sealed with your lover in a plastic bag, unable to breathe, your fleshy bodies pushing against each other, breaking the boundaries of the self. For the Japanese artist Photographer Hal, a mundane household item—a vacuum-sealable futon container—can visually bring to life the invisible emotional currents of love-making and sexual intimacy. He seeks out intriguing couples in bars, inviting them to sit for him in the nude; he then vacuum packs them so that they might be intwined together for a brief moment, suspended in time with bated breath and sweaty skin.

  Leather, whips, fishnets, and choke holds are the ingredients for Miley newest undertaking. For her "Bangerz" world tour, Miley Cyrus has teamed up with  multi-media artist and fashion filmmaker, Quentin Jones, to create a risque two-minute video titled, Tongue-Tied. This sleek black and white art film in which Cyrus flaunts her nearly nude body is scheduled to play before the howling crowds awaiting her airborne hotdog entrance. Read More
My day was just ruined by a little viral video about men learning the science of seducing women. This video isn’t about how to get to know women, or listen to what they want or need, it's about straight up TRICKING THEM INTO BEING SEXUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY DEPENDENT ON YOU. Gosh, I know that sounds like the perfect relationship for every woman everywhere!  I especially love that the video credits women’s super basic DNA and uncontrollable primal urges as the research.

I learned about blow jobs from Charlie Chaplin. (Yes, that Charlie Chaplin). I was about 12 and with my babysitting earnings I bought the book Hollywood Babylon. As a passionate old movie fan, and an adolescent girl with a filthy mind and an even filthier curiosity, a book like Hollywood Babylon was a dream come true. The book dealt with various Tinsel Town scandals, and while I now know that much of the book is just blatantly untrue and much is just based on gossip, at the time it was my bible, and I don’t use that term loosely.
