Although the term "sex work" very obviously includes the idea that it's labor, we tend not to see it as such: the way in which the media conceptualizes the sex industry is plagued by stigmas and toxic misunderstandings, one of which is that doing sex work is fundamentally and necessarily different from any other job.
As Superbad star and Oscar nominee Jonah Hill once said in one of his most criminally underrated performances: You don't want girls to think you suck dick at fucking pussy. You probably don't want them to think you're bad at eating it, either. Problem is, for people who have never attempted performing oral sex on a woman before, the vagina is a mysterious and scary foldy cave, and on the first several attempts, cunnilingus is a terrifying spelunking journey into the unknown. Until now.
In the midst of a flurry of court cases and Senate activity over sexual assault in the military, the news that the Army's top sexual assault prosecutor assaulted a woman himself is probably not the kind of thing Army officials are excited about having to address. Well, whoops – here we go anyway.
Welcome to Fashion Would You Rather, a feature in which I find very ugly clothes and force you to choose which you would rather don in public.
Periods are a perfectly natural element of the human experience, not a blood-soaked nightmare from whence we can never wake. But you wouldn't know that to talk to many dudes out there! And maybe it's time that we, as a society, maybe fixed that.
Last month, the first ever birthing center that also houses an abortion clinic opened in Buffalo, New York and it’s called Buffalo WomenServices. The space is one of the first where both the pro-choice and birthing communities coexist beneath the same roof, explicitly. Mind Blown.
My theory: Don Draper is recently divorced, gives up for good on his children, and decides to move to California and live out his remaining days as the Dick Whitman construction that he never allowed himself to be.
Martha Stewart is a perfect specimen of a human, which is why it's so nice when she decides to drop out of her castle in the sky and come down to earth to chat with the good people on Earth about everything you're doing wrong. And as she revealed in a Reddit AMA Thursday, you're doing a lot wrong.

Hey, America! Do you want to see struggling twenty-somethings milling about in front of New York's most uninspiring architecture? Have I got a deal for you.
HBO's True Detective seems to have filled a Breaking Bad-sized hole in the hearts and minds of television fans.

Jacklyn Zeman, who has played Bobbie Spencer on General Hospital for nearly 40 years, was filmed for an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous back in 1986. Her "lifestyle" apparently involved doing a series of exercises in a string bikini on her yacht in what looks like Perto Cervo, exposing her meticulously manicured bikini area.
In general, there are few things less funny and interesting to talk about than the science and psychology of humor. While there have certainly been some insightful and captivating think pieces on humor over the years (my friend and colleague Lindy West's being chief among them), most reflections on the topic tend to devolve into dull monologues about what can be funny (butt stuff), who can be funny (sad clowns) and what you're allowed to laugh at (sad clowns suffering from butt stuff).
