18 Film-Sexszenen, die absolut alles veränderten

Kannst du dich noch an eine Zeit erinnern, zu der Film und Fernsehen noch ohne Sexszenen auskamen? Vermutlich nicht – und wahrscheinlich war es dir als Teenager unheimlich peinlich, wenn du mit deinen Eltern einen Film geguckt hast und es darin plötzlich etwas heißer zuging. Davor blieben wir alle nicht verschont, denn Sex und Film gehen schon immer Hand in Hand. „20 Minuten nach der Erfindung des Films dachte sich vermutlich jemand: ‚Wäre es nicht super, wenn wir mal nackte Leute filmen würden?...

Klischees existieren aber schließlich nicht ohne Grund. Verabredungen zwischen queeren Frauen sind oft bis ins letzte Detail geplant – mit Kerzen, Gedichten und Picknicks am Strand.Lasst uns diese Verallgemeinerungen aber mal beiseiteschieben. Ich habe s...

Stop Apologizing for Who You Are

Sometimes, the first thing I do when I come downstairs in the morning is apologize for sleeping “so late.” It is after 7am, I suppose. I’m a night owl by design. My body’s ideal schedule would be sleeping from 1am to10am, like a teenager on a Saturday. I come by this desire naturally; it’s literally in my bones. My mom has been retired for more than five years, and when I’m up putzing around (or watching Netflix) at midnight I know I can text her to chat because she’ll be awake. The late-night t...

Dein ultimativer Shopping-Guide: Diese Basics gehören in jeden Schrank

Das Konzept der Capsule Wardrobe (z. Dt.: „Kapsel-Garderobe“) ist nicht neu. Den Begriff gibt es schon seit den 1980ern, als die Londoner Boutique-Besitzerin Susie Faux ihren Kund:innen darunter Kleidung minimalistischer Brands wie Jil Sander verkaufte. 1985 brachte dann Donna Karan die Idee in die USA, in Form ihrer „Seven Easy Pieces“-Kampagne. Spätestens, seit Marie Kondo auf Netflix nicht bloß Kleiderschränke, sondern ganze Häuser ausmistet, dürften viele ihre Beziehung zu den eigenen Bergen...

Small Ship Cruise Guide for those Looking for Luxury

‘Let Them All Talk’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Takes You on a Leisurely Cruise in This Curious Dramedy

Can you even imagine going on a cruise again? I’m sure some people are perfectly fine with the idea – heck, some people would be willing to go right now, this very second, if they could. But here in the age of the coronavirus, cruises seem like floating Petri dishes; isolated barges with no escape. Which makes Steven Soderbergh‘s curious Let Them All Talk already feel weirdly dated. It’s set in a world where people gather freely, maskless, throwing their cares to the wind. They board a huge shi...
