Sperm were the hot trend at London Fashion Week

Let’s talk about sex, baby! The biggest takeaway from London Fashion Week? Designers across the pond are all horned up. Take Ashley Williams, who showed in London the day after Valentine’s. She’s known for her campy bejeweled hair clips that spell out sayings like “Anxiety” or “Devil” — but things got even more risque this...

"Dana Densmore, a founding member of the separatist group Cell 16, took issue with the idea that sex was a basic human need."

"In 1968 in a journal appropriately titled 'No More Fun and Games,' she wrote that 'guerrillas' had important things to do and couldn’t be sidetracked by sex, which was 'inconvenient, time-consuming, energy-draining and irrelevant.' Romantic love was a problem, too. Ti-Grace Atkinson, a radical feminist philosopher, positioned it as the enemy of independence and insecurity. 'What is love but need?' she wrote in 1968.

If You’re Single, It’s Okay To Let Valentine’s Day Suck

Carmine: “Red roses, lovely, romantic. The guy that sends these really knows what he’s doing." Loretta: "The guy who sends those spends a lot of money on something that’s going to end up in the garbage.” - Moonstruck, 1987I don’t need a “survival guide.” I don’t need Galentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day: A watered-down pagan Lupercalia

Modern Valentine's Day is a far more restrained version of the pagan holiday it replaced. During Lupercalia, Romans got naked, drunk, and there was whipping involved. Romantic cards? How about simulated penetration? None There's hardly a warmer or fuzzier holiday than Valentine's Day each February 14. It was created in 496 by Pope Gelasius I, or maybe Felix III according to historian T.P. Wiseman. Among those who helped reshape it into a day of romance were Chaucer and Shakespeare, and after H...
