    They have divided fashionistas and feminists for generations, but scientists now claim to have proof that high heels are sexy. Researchers recruited 52 female university students aged 18 to 24 and shot videos of them walking in flat shoes and in their own high heels, varying in height from 8cm to 10cm. Editing software was used to erase their feet so that only the women’s body movements could be assessed – and all had been instructed to wear similar dark, tight-fitting T-shirts, with jeans or leggings and have their hair tied back to ensure uniformity.
  • Facebook doesn't know its onions: Seeds ad banned after machine-learning algo found vegetable pic 'overtly sexual'

    Facebook's computer-vision algorithm flagged an innocuous advert for onions posted on its social media platform for being "overtly sexual." The Seed Company by EW Gaze, a Canadian garden store, wanted to advertise its Walla Walla onion seeds on the social network, but its attempt was shot down after the image used in the advert was deemed too naughty by Facebook's software. Although most would argue that there's nothing remotely sexy about a close-up shot of onions in a basket, Facebook's automated software clearly disagreed. A screenshot posted by the company said the image was classified as having "overtly sexual positioning"....

    In a bid the make "stay at home" orders "less tedious and alienating" Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Rachel Levine is now recommending "porn and masturbation" as a way to cope. "One of the unforeseen benefits of the pandemic has been the realization that traditional attitudes about sex need to be changed," she said. "With many states imposing severe limits on movement and social contact, the old ways of sexually interacting are being seen as unduly risky. Skin-to-skin contact with another person conjures up nightmares of deadly viruses invading our bodies. This grim awareness of the deadly potential...

    With movie theaters closed, the cutthroat competition for Christmas 2020 viewers is focused on streaming. Last year Netflix dominated the holidays at home with the big-budget, high-profile fantasy “The Witcher.” This time, the champ is back with a whole new type of fantasy series with an adaptation of the Regency romance series of novels known as “Bridgerton.” ........................................................ “Bridgerton” features none of these fig leaves. The series is the second Netflix title from Shonda Rhimes, best known for steamy ABC shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and “How To Get Away With Murder.” Here, she unapologetically serves up joyous sentimentality and...

    Some Saturday Night Live viewers were left less than impressed with a sketch featuring Adele that poked fun at sex tourism in Africa. The singer, 32, hosted the most recent episode of the sketch show and received praise for her comedic skills. However, some were unhappy with a sketch that made fun of wealthy westerners travelling to Africa for sex, with Adele and SNL castmember Kate McKinnon portraying women advertising 'holidays' in Africa.

  • Japanese Rapunzel Hasn’t Cut Her Hair in 15 Years

    Rin, who hails from Tokyo, was never allowed to grow her hair as a child. She was on the girl’s football team so had to keep it short, but when she became an adult, she decided to take control of her hair and use it as a “weapon of expression”. The last time she cut her hair was 15 years ago, and now her straight, black locks measure 5ft 10in, a good 4 inches more than Rin herself. Although her hair sometimes gets in the way when doing the simplest of tasks, like changing her clothes, the Japanese dancer and...

    (CNN)College students who find themselves out on a date gone wrong at bars in southeastern Florida may be able to turn to the bartender for help. Posters hanging in the restrooms of about a dozen bars and restaurants in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Jupiter give instructions to women about alerting bartenders if they're in danger or uncomfortable. First, order a drink called the "Owl Shot." Then, depending on what's happening, say one of the three coded phrases displayed on the posters. Based on the code, here's how the bartenders will respond: 'Neat': Bar staff will escort you to your...

  • Have YOU been wokefished? New dating trend sees singles pretending to be more progressive than they are to attract sexual partners including a neo-Nazi who claimed to long for diversity

    Singletons looking for a date online are pretending to be more politically progressive to attract new partners, in a new trend that's been dubbed 'wokefishing'. The term, coined by writer Serena Smith in an article for Vice, is a portmanteau of 'catfishing' where a person pretends to be someone else online and 'woke' which describes someone who is socially conscious and alert to injustice in the world. Smith, from Leeds, claims she herself was a victim of wokefishing, as her former partner had lured her in believing the pair had similar beliefs, but revealed his true self when she decided...

    Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren has several issues with men and claims it’s something that all of her friends experience. Departing from her normal political shtick, which she airs on Fox Nation’s First Thoughts, Lahren took the video route to shout out her problems with men in a rant. Calling herself a “woman of value” and applying that tag to her friends, Lahren tongue-lashed the games men play and the fact that they’re not appreciative of women like her. “It will be a cold day in hell before I chase a man,” said Lahren, who moved from Los Angeles to Nashville...

    "The greatest and most challenging test for any man is to romance and pursue the same woman for a lifetime." In my opinion, the best movie about Vietnam is We Were Soldiers starring Mel Gibson. He plays lieutenant colonel Hal Moore who commanded the first major battle of that war known as the Battle of Ia Drang. Surrounded and facing overwhelming odds, Moore and his soldiers withstood the onslaught for a week. One of the things Moore credits as a reason for the success was the love and devotion the soldiers had for one another. However, equally as important, was...

    A just-released report from the Pew Research Center sends a dagger straight through the heart of a popular mythology—the one that insists that what single people want, more than anything else, is to become coupled. So untrue. The findings, based on a national, random sampling of nearly 5,000 adults in the U.S., showed that 50 percent of single people are not interested in a committed romantic relationship and they are not even interested in a date. Another 10 percent want nothing more than casual dates. About a quarter of single people, 26 percent, would be interested in casual dates or...

    Women who have 2020’s most unfortunate name are complaining — as so-called Karens stereotypically do — that they can’t even find suitors online now that their names have been dragged, according to a dating app. Wingman, which helps hook up friends with friends, said users named Karen have reported getting few matches on the app this year than last, as reported by The Daily Mail. According to the survey, poor Karens are getting nearly a third fewer matches and fewer responses to messages in the dumpster fire year that is 2020. Wingman also said Karens reported less engagement while using...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is looking for love — but only in New York. The three-term Democrat was grilled about “ghosting” Chelsea Handler on Thursday — a day after the comedian admitted to asking him out but never hearing back. “I’m a big fan of Chelsea’s and she is great and we have fun but on my dating life, you know, I am only dating at this point in-state residents,” Cuomo, 62, said during an appearance on “The View,” presumably referring to the still-raging COVID-19 crisis.
