For those who haven’t heard, Cannes film festival favorite Blue is the Warmest Color has a graphic lesbian sex scene.
A sex scene that has been debated, cursed and praised for its real and explicit portrayal of two women being intimate. Apparently, the sex scene is ten minutes long, which is an issue for a lot of people. But what is the issue? The nudity? The lesbianism?
I am excited about the queer visibility that ... Read More

Ok, not gonna lie, but when I first heard that Lizzy Caplan was going to be in a show about sex, I squealed. I mean, her sex scenes in season one of True Blood made me utterly jealous, mainly because she was up close and personal with Ryan Kwanten. But a recent Vulture interview with Caplan helped me understand her new show, Masters of Sex, a bit further.
Masters of Sex, which premiered last night on Showtime at 10PM EST, centers on ... Read More

The advertisement that’s getting lots of buzz is of a few female nude models that have serious expressions on their faces. The picture is accompanied with the phrase, “Skin Solutions As Individual As You Are”. Apparently, the Australian advertising self-regulator agency, Outdoor Media Association, thought ... Read More

I know, I know, we’re all sick of talking about Miley Cyrus. Regardless of the obvious cultural appropriation and insensitivity she displayed at the VMA’s with her twerk debacle, the debate on whether or not her overt sexuality is empowering (or degrading) continues.
Today, she released her new video for her song “Wrecking Ball.” In the song, she describes the heartbreak and loss that can come with truly ... Read More

If the latest issue of New York Magazine is the big Fall Fashion issue, then why is Lake Bell gracing it in her birthday suit? Does the latest fall trend require me to bare my nipples to the world, too?
Correction— I suppose no nipples are necessary. Lake appears to shield those little bits with a false tattoo. Two leaves covering her nipples and a hand delicately placed over her crotch is now the height of haute couture. But ... Read More

When I first peeked at JT’s new video on Youtube the first two comments for “Tunnel Vision” were “This porn has good music” followed by “It’s not porn, it’s art.”
Let me save you a little bit of time: it’s neither.
What it is, in fact, is Justin Timberlake being totally gross and weird for waaaay too long, in ways I never thought was possible. It makes Dick-in-a-Box look ... Read More

We recently spotted an interesting link floating around the internets courtesy of Racked.com, an interview with a woman who's been hanging out in the East Village...all out.
Hats off, or tops off, rather, to Moira Johnston for her confidence. She's been going topless for a few weeks in New York in honor of the legality of the act. In fact, she insists, "It's to raise awareness that's it's legal for woman to be topless anywhere a guy can be ... Read More

If anyone was watching the Emmys on Sunday, you may have noticed Glee star Heather Morris' nipple slip on the red carpet.
This is hardly shocking news, as these fashion faux-pas seem to happen constantly in Hollywood. If you search "nip slip" online you can find pictures of various celebrities accidentally flashing some boob.
What I don't understand is why human beings are shocked over a little nudity these days. Sure it's ... Read More
