as a kid i was fascinated by the idea of going to my first nude beach. a strange thought perhaps for a kid, but when you have a set of C cups at the age of 12, you tend to become sexualized at a bit sooner than your peers. (it probably didn’t help that i had cable in my room and regularly watched HBO’s real sex).
the topless beach fantasies soon subsided, however, when i realized the type of people nudists “truly” are. the reality is that a majority of nudists look less like gisele bundchen and tom brady, and more like soon yi previn and woody allen. and while i would never judge one for being comfortable in the skin they’re in, the truth did dash my hopes of ever happening upon a naked george clooney type while strolling the sands in my birthday suit.
this past weekend, forty five members a group called british naturism took over the island of flat holm in the bristol channel. as the bbc reported, the naturists spent the weekend sampling “a wealth of history and wildlife during their visit.” oh that’s nice.
but as the sun (aka the british version of the ny post) reports THIS is what was really going down.
conclusion. no one should be judged. because underneath all the clothes, everyone is the same – they all look like americans.
if you were expecting to read a political article, please close the page quickly because what i’m about to discuss is nothing of the sort. the question i have today is really about MY bush – or should i say the lack there of.
i’ve been waxing my “lady business” bald for several years now. it’s become as routine as buying tampons. recently my aunt, who manages a spa, told me she could get me free laser hair removal treatments. of course, i’m so excited and want to do it because it’s not everyday someone offers you what probably amounts to a couple thousand dollars in free spa services. but i also wonder if it’s possible that hairy va-jay-jay’s will ever be considered “the norm” again.
remember this NSFW lee friedlander photo of madonna? while madonna is, and probably always will be, a sex symbol, i’m having a hard time believing that a bush like that could ever be considered sexy again. on one hand there is something extremely powerful and natural about it. but on the other hand i keep thinking about this german women i saw while vacationing in thailand – her bush protruding from all sides of her bathing suit – and how it made me want to vomit.
i’ve always hated hair. even as a kid i remember having my “MONK” moments, and having to make sure there was no hair in the tub before i even stepped foot in the shower. and don’t even get me started on hair that is left on bar soap. so i could be biased in my belief that all unneccessary hair should be permanently removed. so what do you think?
should bush be banished?
punxsutawney phil saw his shadow. cardinals sucked. bills are due. laundry is dirty. everyone’s trippin’ and so am i. today i’m officially over it. tomorrow is another day.
people love to post their relationship status on facebook. some do it for attention, some do it to mark their territory, others are just really insecure about their relationship and use it as self-validation, and some really are just so in love and want the world to know it. i am not one of those people. there are several reasons for this (one being because if we break up, i really don’t want the world writing words of inspiration and well wishes on my wall.) THIS story however, provided me with an additional reason why I will never establish a relationship status online.
this is the 2nd durex commercial i’ve posted. their ad campaigns are genius.
i was extremely upset when remote control went off the air. it was the only game show i ever really wanted to be on. unfortunately i was only 9 years old when it aired. but beyond just paying tribute to an awesome show, what i also love about this clip is seeing adam sandler 20 years ago still trying to make us laugh. it gives me hope.
losing the job that i loved so much was, and still is, the hardest thing i’ve ever had to deal with. but seeing adam where he was, and where he is today makes me realize that i shouldn’t give up. and also gives me hope that while i may be unemployed for several more months to come, it won’t be forever.
