Let’s Stop Insulting People By Comparing Them To Sex Workers (And Sluts!)

Let's Stop Insulting People By Comparing Them To Sex Workers (And Sluts!)

As you almost definitely know by now, Rush Limbaugh made waves last week with his ridiculously absurd characterization of women who want their insurance to cover their birth control as sluts and prostitutes who should be obligated to film pornos for him. This prompted a lot of people to demonstrate the incorrectness of this statement; the #iamnotaslut tweets, for example. This is all well and good, but third wave feminist that I am, I wondered: what about the people who are whores or sluts? Where does that leave them? More »

Real Talk: Would You Hire A Male Prostitute?

Real Talk: Would You Hire A Male Prostitute?

Last week, Marie Claire taught me yet another thing that I as a female need to dread: my hypothetical fiance (otherwise totally marriage material) might get goaded into sleeping with a prostitute at his bachelor party. Which is a total bum-out (and so we asked women if they, too, were bummed out by this). Anyway, I started wondering, why aren’t there any titillating exposes of women sleeping with male sex workers at bachelorette parties? Moments later, I realized the answer. But! It was still worth asking a bunch of ladies if they’d ever hire a gigolo. Answers ranged mostly from “No!” to “No and here’s why” but they all greed that yes, every living one of us would gladly pay to have sex with Richard Gere in American Gigolo. More »

Awesome Times We Have Been Catcalled

Awesome Times We Have Been Catcalled

We’re sort of part of the problem, really. We should probably gently chide men for treating us like pieces of meat when they catcall us. Instead, we keep flashing them the double thumbs up (like Fonzie!) Oh, fine, not all of them. Only some of them. Only these. Only the best ones. We give the rest only one thumb up, and sometimes we let it hover sideways for a while, like we’re judging gladiators. Here are the best catcalls the women of the B5 office has ever received: More »

Poll: Could You Forgive a Guy for Visiting a Prostitute?

Poll: Could You Forgive a Guy for Visiting a Prostitute?

Last week, the story of Charlie Sheen’s crazy, coked-up shenanigans with a prostitute gave the tabloids plenty of material. However, Sheen is far from the first celebrity to pay for sex. As The Frisky reminds us, Hugh Grant, Eddie Murphy, and Alex Rodriguez are among the famous men who have been linked to escorts. In some of those cases – Grant and Murphy – they were in relationships at the time with women who forgave them. Could you do the same, or is sleeping with a prostitute unforgivable? More »
