PLAN B 33 - IT'S THE ONE FOR ME!


Managed to rouse self from pregnancy-induced writing slumber to scribe two pieces for the latest issue of Plan B magazine. One's a column about, like, MUSIC and PREGNANCY. And one's an interview with my future husband Eugene Robinson about, like, CHOKING and FIGHTING and ROUGH SEX and no music. Hurrah!

WHY WE LOVE JEZEBEL

Aw, like we really needed more reasons to love Jezebel:

Period sex: A 'Do' Or A 'Don't'?

Great Sexpectations: Dr Ruth Personally Advises Us On Period Sex

I fucking love the internet! No more waiting around for a decent women's magazine to come along, no more wondering 'what women want' from a magazine - just cobble together all the best bits of fashion, feminism, sex and politics, shove them in yr Netvibes, and bob's your bad uncle.

Speaking of which, have my FEMINISM Netvibes tab. It's got Feministing, The F-Word, DollyMix, Jezebel, Militant Female Artist, The Lipster and One D at a Time. What more d'you need?

Add to Netvibes

Jungsheft (previously Gluck) is a German publication featuring 'lecker jungs' (jung is German for boy, apparently) in their skinny nekkid hipster glory. As it's all in German I can't judge the quality of the articles, though they seem to be mainly sex-based - a guide to giving the perfect blow job, a feature on slash fiction, etc. I do like these new attempts at porn for chicks (New York's Sweet Action magazine being another example), but I think one of the things that slightly disappoints me about them is that the content is almost always exclusively about sex. One of the things I enjoy about Butt magazine is that the interviews are about politics and culture as much as - or more than - they are about sex. This has the effect of positioning sex somewhere differently, as just a small part of a rich life. If you surround your pictures of naked hipster men with features about sex and porn film reviews, etc, then sex becomes segmented, separate from the everyday - swept into a corner as though it is something distinct, (shameful?), rather than something that underpins and runs through our day-to-day actions. As though sex and intellect are at odds with each other. I think the difference between Butt and these magazines as well is that Butt is able to persuade gay fashion designers, writers, illustrators, filmmakers, artists and so on to pose naked and semiclothed to accompany interviews with them. Vincent Gallo aside, could hetero male artists, musicians, writers etc be persuaded to pose unclad for an audience of women alongside interviews about their work? Because I think that is what's necessary to create a porno* for chicks magazine that really really works.

*Also I don't think the expression 'porno' really works here. I don't know if I could get off to any of these pictures of naked boys. It doesn't mean I don't want to see them.

"She was into S&M and Bible studies, not everyone's cup of tea, she would admit to me..."

It's always fun to meet someone and watch their face do a confused as they realise that you in the flesh is a huge disappointment compared to your online persona: but at least I've never been dumped in favour of my online alter ego. Ouch!

And finally...could this be the ugliest, most inbred-looking baby EVER?? It's so ugly it looks like one of those fake baby dolls you see advertised in the National Enquirer. Poetic justice.

'THOSE CRAZY JAPANESES' vol 5434875984208

After the boyfriend's arm, comes the lady's lap (with thanks to Alice for the link!).






Not a euphemism for the all the fems recently released from LTRs choosing to embrace a more feminine style of lovin' - though it should be - but a range of anatomically-shaped pillows designed to provide you with all the comforts of a relationship, but none of the angst.

The arm pillows are now also available from the States via ArmPillow.com. The site suggests that these pillows would make an excellent gift for 'anyone who has recently become single again.' Yeah RIGHT! If you HATED them!

If men use affection to get sex, and women use sex to get affection, then is the Arm Pillow the chick version of the Pocket Pussy? If so, what kind of reviews would ladies give to it?

While I'm all in favour of women's lib, sometimes I feel like it's only fair to make the gentlemen do the heavy lifting and taking out the rubbish and drilling, because we have to have the babies, which hurts and makes our tits sag, and because men are stronger than us, and because statistics show they still only do a comparatively smaller amount of household chores than women, even when both parties are working. And they really ought to be made to do something. Unfortunately, occasionally there are no gentlemen around to lift things up and mend them, at which point you'll need to consult tomboytools.com, and learn how to do shit yourself.

The site offers everything you'll need to learn to know how to knock down walls and do various other home improvement jobs, and they also sell tool-kits specially for chicks. However, unlike most traditionally male stuff that gets marketed to women (Gameboy Advance, anyone? Mini iPod?) they didn't just stick a candy-coloured veneer on said tools, but customised them to fit women's dinky li'l hands and made them lightweight, durable - and definitely not pink. They also run workshops and there's a useful forum to discuss DIY-related shit without some cowboy builder patronising your ass off. So throw away that gey little crochet hook, crafters, grab a pneumatic drill, and start KNOCKING SHIT TO BITS instead.

Sure, we've all been jokingly calling Google 'God' for a while now, right? But this is just… frightening. You start typing in what you're looking for, and Google provides a list of suggestions and shows how many results there are for each suggestion as you type. Brr! I don't like it if I'm typing some perverted crap (purely as research, officer!) into Google's little box and it gets there before me. Google's starting to feel less like a benevolent, omniscient being, and more like some creepy uncle who's read your diary, knows all your shit, and is not afraid to use it against you.
