If this doesn’t shake your belief in the essential fairness of the capitalist system, I don’t know what will. More
I’m “briandead,” you guys. But “your” ugly, so we’re all even. More
Cat Marnell! I want to give you a hug! More
Sometimes TheGloss’ editors get really jealous of Cat Marnell for all that material she can draw from. More
Can you tell the difference between Cat Marnell and Gore Vidal? It’s not as easy as you think! More
Oh, Edie Sedgwick. More
Infamous “beauty and health critic” Cat Marnell quit her post at xoJane this week to pursue “[being] on the rooftop of Le Bain looking for shooting stars and smoking angel dust with my friends” (also a book deal).

You know what’s great? Avoiding unplanned pregnancies. It’s probably the best thing about being a responsible adult, besides maybe eating cake for dinner sometimes. So, in the wake of a certain internet fiasco, we decided to talk to a bunch of smart, responsible, female adults who 1) care about their health and 2) care about the health of their partners… and therefore practice safe sex.
This is not to say that people don’t make mistakes–condoms break and no form of birth control is 100% effective–but it is to say that adults who make mistakes learn from them. Otherwise, they’re not adults. So, for today’s Real Talk we asked women to tell us about their preferred methods of protection. More
At TheGloss, we may be jerks, but we are never ambivalent.
