The first television commercial for Lady Gaga‘s groundbreaking and important scented water came out yesterday, and it seems to take advantage of the well known fact that everything sounds sexier and more poetic when translated into ze language of love. Even the back of a perfume box. Especially the back of a perfume box. More
Ladies and gentlemen, today, July 5, the bikini bathing suit turns 66 years old. T More
I think it’s been fairly well-established around these parts that Michael Fassbender is an extremely good-looking man. As a reward for getting through your Monday, why not take a look at this sexy photo shoot he did for the April issue of the French magazine Obsession? He doesn’t quite do the full Monty in these photos, but the last one is rather NSFW nonetheless.

The French sure know how to put together a book. L’histoire de la Lingerie (The History of Lingerie), by Chantal Thomass and Catherine Ormen, comes inside a small pink box and is carefully wrapped in black tissue paper. And while the book itself is an exhaustively researched tome that covers everything from corsets to Bardot, even non-French speakers can enjoy out the gorgeous quality photographs that trace the history of women’s undergarments.

France: land full of pastries, land full of hot men. Woo them with lines like “tu as un poisson dans ta bibliotheque” (you have a fish in your library) and “elle est n’est pas jolie!” (she is not pretty!) because … More
