There comes a time in a young lady’s life when she meets the man of her dreams (or at least so she thinks…). When this glorious day finally dawns, it’s time to up the ante in the love department. Whether he showers you with suggestive gifts or you purchase a little something sultry for yourself, it’s a win-win. Because let’s be serious, any sort of sexy accoutrement is really a gift for him, right? You don’t have to be a harlot to be a heartbreaker. To be clear, sexy doesn’t have to be tacky. So put back the feathered boa and the Reddi-Whip… there’s a better way.
The holidays and weeks leading up to them can really bring out the best in people. More often than not though, it brings out the worst. It seems like some of you completely forget what the season is all about and chuck your manners right out the window. Get it together, people.
Ugly Christmas sweater parties. This is kind of like an 80’s party to me. Why do you want to purposefully look bad when there are so many other fun things you could be wearing? Like sequins?
Speaking of which… SantaCon. You could traumatize a lot of little children. Do you want to live with that kind of guilt?
Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots. I don’t care how you try and spin it. These are ugly. Not to mention likely to result in a sprained ankle. And is looking like a clown on stilts really worth a hairline fracture?
Blue Christmas lights.
The Post Office. In general, but especially during the holiday rush. I have better things to do with the next two hours of my life…. but I’ll wait.
We’ve all been through it. The gut wrenching, heart shattering, hysteria inducing breakup. And just as we’ve all experienced it– we’ve also all survived it. So, this week, we will help a sexy starlet get through her very own heartbreak.
So apparently, Ashton and Demi are breaking up [People]
Miss No Strings Attached in theaters back in January? No worries, you can catch it in theaters now… except this time it’s called Friends with Benefits - oh and they replaced Ashton and Natalie with Justin and Mila. No biggie. Not sure how exactly this slipped through the cracks with movie producers and studio heads, especially when all involved have worked so closely (Black Swan, That 70’s Show). You’d think at some point in between takes of the lesbian scene in Black Swan, Natalie might’ve mentioned something like, “You’re way better at this than Ashton. We’re doing a new movie together about these friends who have sex…”
And Mila would say, “No way!! JT and I are doing the same thing!”
Then they’d smack five and get back to business. Anyway, seeing that there are two major movies and four mega stars covering the sultry subject, I figured it must be something on the forefront of people’s minds. Just like the premise of the movies, having a “friend with benefits” (also known as a f*ck buddy), seems like a great idea in theory when in between relationships, but as everyone could guess (without having to sit through the movies or spend $15 a ticket) it never turns out quite the way you’d planned.
See it all gets a bit messy when one (if not both) catches stronger than “just friends” feelings. It’s nearly impossible for neither party to get attached when so much time is spent naked and in between the sheets. Sex is a very intimate thing and no matter how modern the woman (or man), sex is always more than just sex. I mean, let’s be serious, would you really sleep with someone you didn’t like… just a little? My verdict? Friends with benefits is always a bad idea.
Now, here’s the part where I bring it full circle by completely contradicting myself. I actually think the best relationships are built between people who have strong friendships. The trick is seamlessly transitioning from best buds to bed buds. The sexy part of relationships always fade (at least a little bit), but the sturdy foundation of friendship can keep a couple afloat.
So what do you think? Would you do the deed with a friend in need?
Whatever you decide, always be safe with your body and mind.
I realize that I give the Hollywood starlets a lot of crap for going out in public in their crazy get ups, so I figured it was high time to level the playing field and turn the tables on the boys. After all, fellas are perfectly prone to fashion eff ups as well.
Speaking of which, here is the oh so handsome Mr. Moore Ashton Kutcher proving just how susceptible men are to fashion flubs:
Yikes! With an outfit like that, I’m not sure I’d want to be his friend… let alone his friend with benefits. Wait… wrong movie. Anyway, I’m a little surprised the always elegant, always divine Demi Moore would let her boy toy leave the house looking like a ranch hand. I get that Ashton is a little quirky, but this is more along the lines of dorky. Rule number one for every man out there: just say “NO” to khakis. If he was going to go with such a bold blanket jacket, he would have been better off pairing it with dark denim and a plain white T-shirt. That actually might have looked pretty cool.
Instead, he looks like he just wrestled a buffalo (and lost). Better luck next time, Ashton, but this time you’ve been Punk’d.
